Setting up the Phone
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.
Do the following steps:
A. Choose the best location
B. Install the rechargeable battery pack into the handset
C. Connect the base unit
A. Choose the best location
Before choosing a location for your new phone, read the INSTALLATION
CONSIDERATIONS included in the PRECAUTIONS. Here are some important guidelines
you should consider:
Avoid heat sources, such as radiators,
air ducts, and sunlight
Avoid television sets and other
electronic equipment
Choose a central location
Avoid noise sources such as a window
by a street with heavy traffic
Avoid microwave ovens
Avoid excessive moisture,
extremely low temperatures,
dust, mechanical vibration,
or shock
Avoid personal computers
Avoid other cordless telephones
• The location should be close to both a phone jack and a continuous power outlet
which is not switchable.
• Keep the base and handset away from sources of electrical noise such as motors,
microwave ovens, and fluorescent lighting.
• The base can be placed on a desk, tabletop, or mounted on a standard wall plate.

The handset is powered by a rechargeable battery pack.
The battery recharges automatically when the handset is
placed in the base unit.
Charge the handset battery pack for at least 15-20
hours before using your new cordless telephone for the
first time! To maximize the charge capacity of your battery
pack, DO NOT plug the telephone cord into the base unit
and wall jack until the battery is fully charged.
For optimum
performance use only
the Uniden BT-800
rechargeable battery
pack supplied with your
phone.
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 on the handset by sliding
it upwards until it clicks into place.
• Replacement batteries
are also available
through the Uniden
Parts Department at
(800) 554-3988,
Monday through Friday
from 8:00 a.m. to
5:00 p.m. or online at
www.uniden.com
• The handset should
always sit in charging
cradle face forward to
make good contact
with base unit’s
charge contacts.
[ 10 ]
5) Place the handset in the base unit face forward for 15-20
hours without interruption. The base unit’s LED light
(labeled as charge/in use) illuminates once the handset is
placed in the base. The LED light will illuminate regardless
if the battery pack is connected or not.
If the base charge/in use LED light does not illuminate:
• Check to see if the AC adapter is plugged into the base
unit and the electrical wall outlet properly. (Use only the
supplied AC adapter. Do not use any other AC adapter.)
• Check to see if the handset is sitting correctly on the
base and making good contact with the base unit’s
charging contacts.

When the battery pack is very low and needs to be charged,
the phone is programmed to 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.
If the phone is in use, Low Battery flashes and the handset
beeps. Complete your conversation as quickly as possible and
return the handset to the base unit for charging.
The last number dialed in the redial memory, the names and the numbers stored in the
memory locations and CID list are retained for up to 30 minutes while you replace the
battery pack.
Cleaning the battery charging contacts
To maintain a good charge, it is important to clean the
charging contacts on both the handset and base unit once
a month. Using water only, dampen a cloth to clean the
charging contacts. Then make sure to go back over the
charging contacts with a dry cloth before returning the
handset to the base to charge.
• Talk Mode The handset is off the
base and talk/flash
has been pressed,
enabling a dial tone.
Do not use paint thinner, benzene, alcohol, or other chemical products. Doing so
may discolor the surface of the telephone and damage the finish.
www.uniden.com
• 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 base unit after
a telephone call.
• Standby Mode The handset is not in
use. The handset may
be in or off the base,
but talk/flash has
not been pressed.

C. Connect the base unit
1) Connect the AC adapter to the DC IN 9V jack
and to a standard 120V AC wall outlet.
Use only the supplied
AD-314 AC adapter.
Do not use any other
AC adapter.
Route the cord.
2) Set the base on a desk or tabletop, and
place the handset in the base unit.
3) Make sure that the charge/in use LED illuminates.
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 base charging contacts.
• Connect the AC adapter to a continuous power supply.
• Place the base unit close to the AC outlet so that you can unplug the AC adapter easily.
Place the power cord so
that it does not create
a trip hazard or where
it could become chafed
and create a fire or
electrical hazard.
• After installing the battery pack in the handset, charge your handset at least 15-20
hours before plugging into the phone line. Once the handset battery pack is fully
charged, connect the telephone line cord to the base and telephone wall outlet.
4) Connect the telephone line cord to the TEL LINE jack and
to a telephone outlet once the handset is fully charged.
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 5 feet of a working phone jack to avoid excessive
lengths.
• 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 13 to mount the telephone.

see only the local seven digit number. For calls received from outside your local area
code, you will see a full 10-digit number.
www.uniden.com
• If your calling area
requires 10-digit
dialing, do not
program the Area
Code option.
• The cordless phone
features include
AutoTalkTM and

Rechargeable Nickel-Cadmium Battery Warning
• This equipment contains a rechargeable nickel-cadmium battery.
• Cadmium is a chemical known to the State of California to cause
cancer.
• The rechargeable nickel-cadmium battery contained in this
equipment may explode if disposed of in a fire.
• Do not short-circuit the battery.

Rechargeable Nickel-Cadmium
Batteries Must Be Recycled or
Disposed of Properly
• Uniden voluntarily participates in an RBRC®
industry program to collect and recycle nickel-cadmium batteries at
the end of their useful life, when taken out of service within the
United States.
The RBRC® program provides a convenient alternative to placing
used nickel-cadmium batteries into the trash or municipal waste
stream, which is illegal in some areas.
• Through the RBRC® program, Uniden makes it easy for you to drop
off the used battery at local retailers of replacement nickel-cadmium
batteries. You may also contact your local recycling center for
information on where to return the used battery. Please call 1-8008-BATTERY for information on Ni-Cd battery recycling in your area.
Uniden's involvement in this program is part of its commitment to
protecting our environment and conserving natural resources.
• RBRC® is a registered trademark of the Rechargeable Battery
Recycling Corporation.

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS!
Important Electrical Considerations
Unplug all electrical appliances when you know an electrical storm is
approaching. Lightning can pass through your household wiring and
damage any device connected to it. This phone is no exception.
The FCC Wants You To Know
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. Your telephone compiles with Part 68 of FCC Rules. You must,
upon request, provide the FCC registration number and the REN to your
telephone company. Both numbers are on the base unit.
NOTE:
You must not connect your phone to:
• coin-operated systems
• most electronic key telephone systems
Range
Your new phone is designed to achieve the maximum possible range by
transmitting and receiving according to the highest specifications set
forth by the FCC. We have rated this phone to operate at a maximum
distance with the qualification that the range depends upon the
environment in which the telephone is used. Many factors limit range,
and it would be impossible to include all the variables in our rating.
The Maximum Range rating of this phone is meant to be used as a
means of comparison against other range claims.

Telephone Line Problems
The FCC has granted the telephone company the right to disconnect
service in the event that your phone causes problems on the telephone
line. Also, the telephone company may make changes in facilities and
services which may affect the operation of your unit. However, your
telephone company must give adequate notice in writing prior to such
actions to allow you time for making necessary arrangements to
continue uninterrupted service.
If you are having trouble with your telephone service, you must first
disconnect your phone to determine if it is the cause of your problem.
If you determine that it is the cause, you must leave it disconnected
until the trouble has been corrected.
Radio Interference
Radio interference may occasionally cause buzzing and humming in your
cordless handset, or clicking noises in the base. This interference is
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 antenna on the unit is fully extended.
In 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.
More Than One Cordless Telephone
If you want to use more than one cordless telephone in your home,
they must operate on different channels. Press the channel key to select
a channel that provides the clearest communication.
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.
Installation Considerations
Selecting a Location
Before choosing a location for your new phone, there are some
[ 62 ]
important guidelines you should consider:
• The location should be close to both a phone jack and continuous
power outlet. (A continuous power outlet is an AC outlet which does
not have a switch to interrupt its power.)
• Keep the base and handset away from sources of electrical noise
such as motors or fluorescent lighting.
• Be sure there is sufficient space to fully extend the base antenna.
• The base can be placed on a desk or tabletop or mounted on a
standard telephone wall plate.
• You should charge your new phone for 15-20 hours before
completing the installation or using the handset.
WARRANTY DURATION: This warranty to the original user shall terminate
and be of no further effect 12 months after the date of original retail
sale. The warranty is invalid if the Product is (A) damaged or not
maintained as reasonable or necessary, (B) modified, altered, or used as
part of any conversion kits, subassemblies, or any configurations not
sold by Uniden, (C) improperly installed, (D) serviced or repaired by
someone other than an authorized Uniden service center for a defect or
malfunction covered by this warranty, (E) used in any conjunction with
equipment or parts or as part of any system not manufactured by
Uniden, or (F) installed or programmed by anyone other than as
detailed by the owner’s manual for this product.

STATEMENT OF REMEDY: In the event that the product does not conform
to this warranty at any time while this warranty is in effect, warrantor
will either, at its option, repair or replace the defective unit and return
it to you without charge for parts, service, or any other cost (except
shipping and handling) incurred by warrantor or its representatives in
connection with the performance of this warranty. Warrantor, at its
option, may replace the unit with a new or refurbished unit. THE
LIMITED WARRANTY SET FORTH ABOVE IS THE SOLE AND ENTIRE
WARRANTY PERTAINING TO THE PRODUCT AND IS IN LIEU OF AND
EXCLUDES ALL OTHER WARRANTIES OF ANY NATURE WHATSOEVER,
WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR ARISING BY OPERATION OF LAW,
INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THIS
WARRANTY DOES NOT COVER OR PROVIDE FOR THE REIMBURSEMENT OR
PAYMENT OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. Some states do
not allow this exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential
damages so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
There are two types of phone outlets:
Modular Jack
Most phone equipment available now uses modular jacks. Phone cords
are fitted with a molded plastic connector which plugs into this type
of jack. If you do not have modular phone jacks, contact your local
telephone company for information about their installation.
Hardwired Jack
Some equipment is wired directly to a phone jack, and these types of
installations require a modular jack converter. This type of installation
is not difficult; however, you should contact your Uniden telephone
dealer or a telephone supply store for advice about the proper adapter
or converter for your particular situation.
Connecting the Telephone Cords
Consider these safety guidelines before connecting the telephone cords:
Caution!
• Never install telephone wiring during a lightning storm.
• Never touch uninsulated telephone wires or terminals unless the
telephone line has been disconnected.
• Use caution when installing or modifying telephone lines.
Applying Power to the Base
This phone requires an AC outlet, without a switch to interrupt power,
and the included AC adapter. To relieve strain on the DC plug when the
phone is placed on a desk or table, wrap the power cord around the
strain relief notch on the back of the base.
NOTE:
Place the power cord so that it does not create a trip
hazard, or where it could become chafed and create a
fire or other electrical hazards.
LEGAL REMEDIES: This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you
may also have other rights which vary from state to state. This warranty
is void outside the United States of America and Canada.
PROCEDURE FOR OBTAINING PERFORMANCE OF WARRANTY: If, after
following the instructions in the owner’s manual you are certain that
the Product is defective, pack the Product carefully (preferably in its
original packaging). The Product should include all parts and accessories
originally packaged with the Product. Include evidence of original
purchase and a note describing the defect that has caused you to return
