These features enhance your phone’s security and also

About the digital security code
This cordless telephone uses a digital security code to prevent
unauthorized access to your base unit. This security code prevents
other cordless handsets from making calls through your base unit.
A random security code will be assigned automatically between
your base unit and handset when you charge the battery pack for
the first time.
If you want to reset the security code, see page 49.

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 10 - 15 feet of a working phone
jack to avoid excessive cord lengths.
• Make sure the wall material is capable of supporting the weight of
the base and handset.
• Use #10 screws with anchoring devices suitable for the wall
material where the base unit will be placed.

EXS 9980 4th 99.9.1 2:33 PM Page 14
Battery use time (per charge)
From fully charged
• Four hours coutinuous use.
• Seven days when the handset is in the standby mode.
Even when the battery
pack is not being used, it
will gradually discharge
over a long period. For
optimum performance, be
sure to return the handset
to the base unit after a
telephone call for
charging the battery.
When the battery charge becomes low
When the voltage of battery pack in the handset is very low and
needs to be charged, the phone is programmed to eliminate
functions in order to save power. If the battery charge becomes low,
“Low Battery” appears on the LCD. If the phone is in use, the
handset beeps. Complete your conversation as quickly as possible
and return the handset to the base unit for charging.
Cleaning the battery contacts
To maintain a good charge, it is important to clean the battery
contacts on the handset and base unit about once a month. Use a
pencil eraser or other contact cleaner.
Do not use any liquids or solvents.
Rechargeable batteries
have a memory effect that
reduces standby and talk
time. To avoid this
memory effect, on a
monthly basis, use the
phone until the
“Low Battery”
appears. Then charge the
battery for more than 17
hours.
Charging optional battery packs
The base unit of your phone is equipped with a compartment for
charging an extra battery pack for use in your handset. You can
obtain an extra battery pack from your authorized Uniden
dealer.
