Calls Log (Caller ID - Call Waiting)
Your ev 2650 is capable of displaying the name and/or number of the party calling
before you answer the phone (Caller ID). If the number of the Caller ID is contained by
the phonebook, the name contained in the received CID will be replaced by the name in
the phonebook. It is also capable of displaying Caller ID information in conjunction with
a Call Waiting alert signal (Call Waiting Caller ID). With Call Waiting Caller ID, the Caller
ID data is displayed so you can decide whether to answer the incoming call, or continue
with your current conversation. Your ev 2650 can hold up to 50 CID entries.
Only one Handset may access CID Log at a time. If a second Handset attempts to
access the CID Log, they will receive the message NOT AVAILABLE AT THIS TIME.
NOTES ABOUT CALLER ID & CALL WAITING CALLER ID
These are subscription services, provided by most regional telephone service
providers. You must subscribe to these services to get the benefits of these
features. If you do not subscribe to Caller ID services, you can still use your ev 2650
and the other features it offers.
Due to regional incompatibilities, Caller ID information may not be available for
every call you receive. In addition, the calling party may intentionally block
their name and/or phone number from being sent.
As new Caller ID/Call Waiting ID records
are received, your Handsets' displays will
alert you to the new Caller ID records, for
example:
VTECH

After you review all new Caller ID
records, the NEW call indication will be

About Mailboxes
Basic Operation
This answering system has three voice mailboxes. Callers using a touch tone
phone can select the mailbox in which their messages will be recorded by
pressing 1, 2, or 3 while the system plays the outgoing announcement. Otherwise,
messages will be recorded in Mailbox 1.
About Announcements
•
•
•
•
•
You can record two different announcements - one for normal answering and one
for when you've set the system to play the announcement only.
Use normal answering when you want the system to record callers' messages.
Use Announce only when you want to give information to callers without accepting
messages.
If you choose not to record an announcement, the system answers with a
pre-recorded announcement.
The normal answering pre-recorded announcement says: "Hello. I'm unable to
answer your call right now. Please leave your name, number and a message after
the tone." The Announce Only pre-recorded announcement says: "Hello, I'm
unable to answer your call right now. Please call again. Thank you."
By setting Announce Only to On or Off, you decide which announcement
your callers will hear when the system answers a call (the system comes set
for normal answering, with Announce Only turned off). See Set Announce
Only on page 26 to change your announcement selection.
Record Your Announcement
NOTE: If you have assigned different mailboxes to different people, be sure to
tell callers in your announcement to press 1, 2, or 3 to leave a message in
the appropriate mailbox. Remember to leave a few seconds blank at the
end of your recorded announcement to allow callers time to select a mailbox. An example of an announcement:
"Thank you for calling. To leave a message for Bob, press 1 now; to leave a
message for Sue, press 2 now; to leave a message for Elmo, press 3 now;
or, wait for the beep and leave your message."
The system will record your announcement for the currently selected answer
mode (Normal or Announce Only). To confirm or change the answer mode, follow
the directions under Answering System Feature Setup and Feature Summary
on pages 25 and 26.

connected to the cordless Handset,
the microphone on the Handset will
be muted. This is done to limit the effect
of background noise.
• When a compatible Headset is
connected to the cordless Handset,
your Speakerphone feature will be
disabled. To use your Speakerphone
feature, simply disconnect the

The Phone Doesn’t Work At All
•
•
•
Make sure the Power Cord is plugged in.
Make sure the telephone line cord is plugged firmly into the Base Unit and the
telephone wall jack.
Make sure the battery cells are properly charged. If the ‘LOW BATTERY’ message
is shown, the the battery cells need charging.
No Dial Tone
•
•
First check all the suggestions above.
If you still don’t hear a dial tone, disconnect the Base Unit from the telephone jack
and connect a different phone. If there is no dial tone on that phone either, the
problem is in your wiring or local service. Contact your local telephone company.
You Get Noise, Static, Or A Weak Signal Even When You’re Near
The Base Unit
•
Household appliances plugged into the same circuit as the Base Unit can sometimes
cause interference. Try moving the appliance or the Base Unit to another outlet.
You Get Noise, Static, Or A Weak Signal When You’re Away From
The Base Unit
•
•
You may be out of range. Either move closer to the Base, or relocate the Base Unit.
The layout of your home may be limiting the range. Try moving the Base Unit to
another position.
The Handset Does Not Ring When You Receive A Call
•
•
•
•
Make sure you have the ringers activated. To set the ringer, see HANDSET SETTINGS.
Make sure the telephone line cord is plugged firmly into the Base Unit and the
telephone jack. Make sure the power cord is plugged in.
You may be too far from the Base Unit.
You may have too many extension phones on your telephone line to allow all of
them to ring. Try unplugging some of the other phones.
•
Disconnect your Base Unit from the telephone jack, and plug in a corded telephone.
If you still hear other calls, the problem is probably in your wiring or local service.
Call your local telephone company.

Warning: Changes or modifications to this unit not expressly approved by the party
responsible for compliance could void the user's authority to operate the equipment.
The equipment has been tested and found to comply with part 15 of the FCC rules.
These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference
in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio
frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions,
may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no
guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment
does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be
determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try and
correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.

Additional Information
FCC and ACTA Information
If this equipment was approved for connection to the telephone network prior to July
23, 2001, it complies with Part 68 of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)
rules. If the equipment was approved after that date, it complies with the Part 68
rules and with Technical Requirements for Connection of Equipment to the Telephone
Network adopted by the Administrative Council for Terminal Attachments (ACTA).
We are required to provide you with the following information.

encoded in the product identifier without a decimal point as the sixth and seventh
characters following the colon. For example, the product identifier US:AAAEQ03T123XYZ
would indicate an REN of 0.3.
The REN is used to determine how many devices you may connect to your telephone
line and still have them ring when you are called. In most, but not all areas, the sum
of all RENs should be five (5.0) or less. For more information, please contact your
local telephone company.
2. Connection and use with the nationwide telephone network

so that you can still dial the emergency number manually if the memory dialing
feature doesn’t work.

this equipment, or equipment malfunctions, may give the telecommunications company
cause to request the user to disconnect the equipment.
Users should ensure for their own protection that the electrical ground connections of
the power utility, telephone lines and internal metallic water pipe system, if present, are
connected together. This precaution may be particularly important in rural areas.
Caution:
Users should not attempt to make such connections themselves, but should contact
the appropriate electrical inspection authority or electrician as appropriate.
Your Cordless Phone is designed to operate at the maximum power allowed by the
FCC and IC. This means your Handset and Base Unit can communicate only over
a certain distance - which will depend on the location of the Base Unit and Handset,
weather, and the construction and layout of your home or office.
