Installing the Phone
Choosing the Best Location
Before choosing a location for your new phone, here are some important guidelines you should consider:
Avoid heat sources, such as radiators,
Avoid noise sources such as a window by
air ducts, and sunlight
a street with heavy traffic
Avoid television sets and other
Avoid microwave ovens
electronic equipment
Avoid excessive moisture,
extremely low temperatures, dust,
mechanical vibration, or shock
Choose a central location
Avoid personal computers
Avoid other cordless telephones
•The location should be close to both a phone jack and a continuous power outlet (one which is not connected to a
switch).
•The base and each handset should be kept away from sources of electrical noise such as motors, microwave
ovens, and fluorescent lighting.
•The cradle can be placed on a desk, tabletop, or mounted on a standard wall plate. For better reception, place the
base as high as possible.
•The base should be placed in an open area for optimum range and reception.
•If your home has specially wired alarm equipment connected to the telephone line, be sure that installing
the system does not disable your alarm equipment. If you have questions about what will disable your alarm
equipment, contact your telephone company or a qualified installer.
Installing the Rechargeable Battery Packs into the Handsets
Each handset is powered by a rechargeable battery pack. Once installed, the battery
charges automatically when the handset is placed in the base or charging cradle.
To install the rechargeable battery pack:
1) Press down on the handset battery case cover (use the finger indention for a better
grip) and slide the cover downward to remove.
2) Plug the battery pack connector (red & black wires) into the small jack inside the
battery compartment. (The connector notches fit into the grooves of the jack only
one-way.) Match the wire colors to the polarity label in the battery compartment,
connect the battery, and listen for a click to insure connection.
3) Make sure you have a good connection by slightly pulling on the battery wires. If
the connection is secure, the battery jack will remain in place.
4) Place the battery case cover back in the handset by sliding it upwards until it clicks
into place.
Note: Use only the Uniden (BT-905) rechargeable battery pack supplied
with your phone.
Installing the Base Unit and Charging Cradles
1) Connect each AC adapter to the DC IN 9V jack and to each
standard 120V AC wall outlet.
Note:
• Use only the supplied AD-314 AC adapter for the
base unit and AD-310 or AD-1010 for the charging
cradle(s). Do not use any other AC adapter.
• Do not place the power cord where it creates a trip
hazard or where it could become chafed and create a
fire or electrical hazard.
2) Charge the handsets by placing one handset in the base unit
and other handset(s) in the charging cradle(s) with the keypad
facing forward.
3) Make sure that the charge/in use LED and LED illuminate. If the LED
does not illuminate, check to see that the AC adapter is plugged in and
that the handset makes good contact with the cradle’s charging contacts.
Note:
• Connect the AC adapter to a continuous power supply (not
controlled by a wall switch).
• Place each cradle close to the AC outlet to avoid long
extension cords.
• Charge your handsets at least 15 - 20 hours before plugging
into the phone line.
4) Once the handset battery packs are fully charged, connect the
telephone line cord to the TEL LINE jack and a telephone outlet. If
your telephone outlet isn't modular, contact your telephone company
for assistance.

Direct wall mounting
If you don’t have a standard wall plate, you can mount your phone directly to the wall. Before doing this, consider the
following:
•Avoid electrical cables, pipes, or other items behind the mounting location that could cause a hazard when
inserting screws into the wall.
•Try to mount your phone within five feet of a working phone jack to avoid excessive cord lengths.
11
•Make sure the wall material is capable of supporting the weight of the base and handset.
•Use #10 screws (minimum length of 1-3/8 inches) with anchoring devices suitable for the wall
material where the base unit will be placed.
1) Insert two mounting screws into the wall (with their appropriate anchoring device), 3-15/16
inches apart. Allow about 1/8 of an inch between the wall and screw heads for mounting the
phone.
2) Refer to steps 1 through 7 on page 11 to mount the telephone.
Installing the Belt Clip

Register Handsets to the Main Base before Using!
Each handset will need to be registered to the main base unit before use. Whichever handset you choose to charge
in the base unit will automatically register to the base unit. The handset charging in the extra charging cradle MUST
also be registered to the base unit before use.
To register the extra handset(s):
1) Be sure all handsets are fully charged.
2) Pick up the handset from the charging cradle, and place it in the base unit. The charge/in use LED light on the
base unit will begin to flash, indicating that the registration is taking place.
3) Wait for at least five seconds, then pick up the handset from the base unit.
4) Repeat steps 2 - 3 for the rest of the handsets if you have.
5) Press [talk/flash] on one handset. If TALK appears on the display, the handset is registered, press [end].
Then try with all other handsets. If each handset displays TALK, the handset has been registered to the base.
Otherwise, return to step 1 and try again.
6) Once all handsets are registered, it doesn’t matter which handset is placed in the base unit or the charging
cradle.
Note:
• When you charge the handsets, Caller ID summary screen and the name of
the handset appears. Following display is the example of handset No.1 (HS1).
• The charging cradle can be used to charge any handset.

When to Re-register Handsets
In some cases, it may be necessary to re-register your handsets. To re-register your handsets, please follow
registration steps outlined on page 13.
Re-registration is required in the following scenarios:
1) Each time the digital security code is changed. (Refer to page 47 for details regarding the Digital Security Code.)
2) When there is a power failure for more than one hour.
3) If any handset’s battery becomes very low, the handset must be recharged for 15 - 20 hours and re-registered to
the main base unit.
4) In any circumstance in which you experience difficulty connecting to the main base to place or receive calls.
Note: Make sure to return the handsets to the cradles after each phone call.

Basic Setup
There are five basic options that you will need to set up: AutoTalk, CIDCW (Caller ID on Call Waiting), Area Code,
Dial Mode and Language.
CIDCW and Dial Mode options can only be set by using Handset 1.
If you try to set by using other handset, you will not see these options listed on the LCD screen. (You can easily
identify Handset 1 shows as HS1 will be seen in the display while the phone is charging.)
AutoTalk, Area Code and Language options can be set by using any handset.
Activating AutoTalk
AutoTalk will allow you to answer the phone simply by removing the handset from the cradle. You do not have to
press a key to answer the incoming call.
To activate:
1) When the phone is in standby, press and hold [cid/menu]. The following screen appears.
2) Press [select/channel] to turn AutoTalk on.
3) Press [end] or return the handset to the charging cradle to complete the setting. The
handset returns to standby.

Activating Caller ID on Call Waiting (HS1 only)
Caller ID allows you to see the name and number of the calling party before you answer the phone. Caller ID on Call
Waiting (CIDCW) lets you see the name and number of a call that comes in when you are on the line. You must
subscribe to Caller ID service through your local telephone provider to use this feature.
1) When the phone is in standby, press and hold [cid/menu]. The following screen appears.
2) Press [ ] to move the pointer to select CIDCW.
3) Press [select/channel] to toggle and turn on Caller ID on Call Waiting.

In some areas the telephone company may allow you to place a local call by dialing only seven digits (instead of
ten).
If this is the case in your area, you can program your local area code in your phone. Programming your area code
will allow you to see the caller’s seven-digit phone number which will allow you to easily return the local call without
modifying the number before dialing. If you get a call from outside your area code, you'll see all ten digits.

Press [end] or return the handset to the charging cradle to complete the setting. The
handset returns to standby.
Choosing the Dialing Mode (HS1 only)
Your phone can communicate with the telephone network in two different ways: tone dialing and pulse dialing. These
days, most telephone networks use a method called tone dialing, so your phone comes programmed for tone dialing
by default.
If your phone company uses pulse dialing, you'll need to change your phone's dial mode. There's an easy way to tell:
try making a call. If your call connects, your phone's setting is fine. If not, you may need to change the dial mode.
To change the dial mode:

returns to standby.
Note:
• If your phone system requires pulse dialing and you need to send the DTMF tones during a call,
you can temporarily switch over to tone dialing. (Refer to "Tone Dialing Switch-over" on page 28.)
• To enable the setting change of Dialing Mode, you need to return the handset to the base unit
when you complete the setting.
Setting the Language
You can change the language the handset menu displays. Choose from English, French, or Spanish.
To change the language setting:
1) When the phone is in standby, Press and hold [cid/menu]. The following screen appears.
2) Press [ ] to move the pointer to select LANGUAGE.
3) Press [select/channel] to select ENG, FR. or ESP.
4) Press [end] or return the handset to the charging cradle to complete the setting. The
handset returns to standby.

Using the Speed Dial Memory
Your cordless phone allows you to store up to ten names and numbers in each handset. You can dial these numbers
with just a few key presses. The speed dial memory is not limited to phone numbers. You can store any number (up
to twenty digits) that you need to enter once your call connects. This is referred to as Chain Dialing. An example
is a frequently refilled prescription number. Store your pharmacy phone number in one speed dial and your most
frequently refilled prescription number as another speed dial. To use, once you ring your pharmacy's automated
prescription line, simply press [mem] and the speed dial number where you stored your prescription number and
press [select/channel].

eliminate functions in order to save power. If the phone is not in use, LOW BATTERY appears
on the LCD and none of the keys will operate. During a call, LOW BATTERY flashes and the
handset beeps. Complete your conversation as quickly as possible and return the handset to the cradle for charging.
Note: Information stored in the phone's memory will be retained for thirty minutes after the battery
pack is removed. This includes all setup information, last number dialed, speed dial memory, and the
CID list.
Even when the battery pack is not being used, it will gradually discharge over a long period of time. For optimum
performance, be sure to return the handset to the cradle after a telephone call.

Important Safety Instructions
The FCC Wants You To Know
When using your telephone equipment, basic safety
precautions should always be followed to reduce the risk of fire,
electric shock and injury to persons, including the following:
1. Do not use this product near water, for example, near a
bath tub, wash bowl, kitchen sink or laundry tub, in a wet
basement or near a swimming pool.
2. Avoid using a telephone (other than a cordless type) during
an electrical storm. There may be a remote risk of electric
shock from lightning.
3. Do not use the telephone to report a gas leak in the vicinity
of the leak.
4. Use only the power cord and batteries indicated in this
manual. Do not dispose of batteries in a fire. They may
explode. Check with local authorities for possible battery
disposal instructions.
5. Do not disassemble any component of this product.
This equipment complies with Part 68 of the FCC rules and the
requirements adopted by the ACTA.
On the bottom of this equipment is a label that contains,
among other information, a product identifier in the format US:
AAAEQ##TXXXX. If requested, this number must be provided
to the telephone company.
An applicable Universal Service Order Codes (USOC)
certification for the jacks used in this equipment is provided (i.e.,
RJ11C) in the packaging with each piece of approved terminal
equipment. A plug and jack used to connect this equipment to
the premises wiring and telephone network must comply with
the applicable FCC Part 68 rules and requirements adopted by
the ACTA.
A compliant telephone cord and modular plug is provided with
this product. It is designed to be connected to a compatible
modular jack that is also compliant. See installation instructions
for details.
The REN is used to determine the number of devices that
may be connected to a telephone line. Excessive RENs on a
telephone line may result in the devices not ringing in response
to an incoming call. In most but not all areas, the sum of RENs
should not exceed five (5.0). To be certain of the number of
devices that may be connected to a line, as determined by
the total RENs, contact the telephone provider. For products
approved after July 23, 2001, the REN for this product is part of
the product identifier that has the format US:AAAEQ##TXXXX.
The digits represented by ## are the REN without a decimal
point (e.g., 03 is a REN of 0.3). For earlier products, the REN is
separately shown on the label.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
CAUTION!
Risk of explosion if battery is replaced by an incorrect type.
Dispose of used batteries according to the instructions. Do not
open or mutilate the battery, and disconnect the battery before
shipping this product.
57
If this equipment causes harm to the telephone network, the
telephone company will notify you in advance that temporary
discontinuance of service may be required. But if advance
notice isn't practical, the telephone company will notify the
customer as soon as possible. Also, you will be advised of
your right to file a complaint with the FCC if you believe it is
necessary. The telephone company may make changes in its
facilities, equipment, operations or procedures that could affect
the operation of the equipment. If this happens the telephone
company will provide advance notice in order for you to make
necessary modifications to maintain uninterrupted service.
Please follow instructions for repairing, if any (e.g. battery
replacement section); otherwise do not substitute or repair
any parts of the device except as specified in this manual.
Connection to party line service is subject to state tariffs.
Contact the state public utility commission, public service
commission or corporation commission for information. This
equipment is hearing aid compatible.
Should you experience trouble with this equipment, please
contact Uniden customer service at 800-297-1023. If the
equipment is causing harm to the telephone network, the
telephone company may request that you disconnect the
equipment until the problem is resolved.
NOTICE: According to telephone company reports, AC electrical
surges, typically resulting from lightning strikes, are very
destructive to telephone equipment connected to AC power
sources. To minimize damage from these types of surges, a
surge arrestor is recommended.
Changes or modifications to this product not expressly
approved by Uniden, or operation of this product in any way
other than as detailed by the owner's manual, could void your
authority to operate this product.
This device complies with part 15 of the FCC rules. Operation
is subject to the following two conditions: (1) This device may
not cause harmful interference, and (2) This device must accept
any interference received, including interference that may
cause undesired operation. Privacy of communications may not
be ensured when using this phone.
To insure the safety of users, the FCC has established
criteria for the amount of radio frequency energy various
products may produce depending on their intended usage.
This product has been tested and found to comply with the
FCC's exposure criteria. For body worn operation, the FCC RF
exposure guidelines were also met when used with the Uniden
accessories supplied or designed for this product. Use of other
accessories may not ensure compliance with FCC RF exposure
guidelines and should be avoided.
Radio Interference
Radio interference may occasionally cause buzzing and
humming in your cordless handset, or caused by external
sources such as TV, refrigerator, vacuum cleaner, fluorescent
lighting, or electrical storm. Your unit is NOT DEFECTIVE. If
these noises continue and are too distracting, please check
around your home to see what appliances may be causing
the problem. In addition, we recommend that the base not
be plugged into a circuit that also powers a major appliance
because of the potential for interference. Be certain that
the antenna on the unit is fully extended when needed. In
58
I.C. Notice
the unlikely event that you consistently hear other voices or
distracting transmissions on your phone, you may be receiving
radio signals from another cordless telephone or other source
of interference. If you cannot eliminate this type of interference,
you need to change to a different channel. Finally, it should be
noted that some cordless telephones operate at frequencies
that may cause interference to nearby TVs and VCRs. To
minimize or prevent such interference, the base of the cordless
telephone should not be placed near or on top of a TV or VCR.
If interference is experienced, moving the cordless telephone
farther away from the TV or VCR will often reduce or eliminate
the interference.
Terminal Equipment
NOTICE: This equipment meets the applicable Industry Canada
Terminal Equipment Technical Specifications. This is confirmed
by the registration number. The abbreviation, IC, before the
registration number signifies that registration was performed
based on a Declaration of Conformity indicating that Industry
Canada technical specifications were met. It does not imply that
Industry Canada approved the equipment.
NOTICE: The Ringer Equivalence Number (REN) for this
terminal equipment is marked on the equipment itself. The REN
assigned to each terminal equipment provides an indication
of the maximum number of terminals allowed to be connected
to a telephone interface. The termination on an interface may
consist of any combination of devices subject only to the
requirement that the sum of the Ringer Equivalence Numbers of
all the devices does not exceed five.
Cordless Telephone Privacy
Cordless telephones are radio devices. Communications
between the handset and base of your cordless telephone
are accomplished by means of radio waves which are
broadcast over the open airways. Because of the inherent
physical properties of radio waves, your communications can
be received by radio receiving devices other than your own
cordless telephone unit. Consequently, any communications
using your cordless telephone may not be private.
Radio Equipment
The term "IC:" before the radio certification number only
signifies that Industry Canada technical specifications were
met. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) this
device may not cause interference, and (2) this device must
accept any interference, including interference that may cause
undesired operation of the device. "Privacy of communications
may not be ensured when using this telephone".
