The EXAI378 series features include AutoTalk TM and AutoStandby TM. AutoTalk allows you to answer a call
by just removing the handset from the base so you don't have to waste time pushing buttons.
AutoStandby allows you to hang up by simply returning the handset to the base.
The UltraClear Plus TM true compander circuitry virtually eliminates background noise. This innovative
technology, together with 20 different channels, provides you with the best possible reception during
all your conversations.
To protect you against misbilled calls which might result from your phone being activated by other
equipment, the EXAI378 series has Random Code TM digital security which automatically selects one of
over 262,000 digital security codes for the handset and base. Also, the AutoSecure TM feature
electronically locks your phone when the handset is in the base.
RocketDial TM is a one touch speed dial key that automatically dials your most important or frequently
called number. The number dialed, is a preset number stored by the user.

Setting up the Phone
Do the following steps:
A. Choose the best location
B. Install the battery pack
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 AND IMPORTANT SAFETY
INSTRUCTIONS. 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
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
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
which is not switchable.
• Keep the base and handset away from sources of electrical noise such as motors,
microwave ovens, and fluorescent lighting.
• Be sure there is sufficient space to raise the base antenna to a vertical position.
• The base can be placed on a desk, tabletop, or mounted on a standard wall plate.
G E T T I N G S TA R T E D
[9]
EXAI378 2/8/2 6:57 PM Page 10
B. Install the battery pack

Battery use time (per charge)
From fully charged (15-20 hours charge time)
• Seven hours continuous use.
• Fourteen days when the handset is in the standby mode.
Low battery alert
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 and the
numbers stored in the memory locations 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 battery contacts on the handset and base unit
with a dry cloth or a pencil eraser about once a
month. Do not use any liquids or solvents.
G E T T I N G S TA R T E D

that it does not create
a trip hazard or where
it could become chafed
and create a fire or
electrical hazard.
2) Set the base on a desk or tabletop, and place
the handset on the base unit as shown. (For
wall mounting, see "Mounting the Base Unit on
a Wall", on page 13.)
3) Raise the antenna to a vertical position.
4) Make sure the status LED illuminates. If the
LED does not illuminate, check to see that the
AC adapter is plugged in and the handset
makes good contact with the base charging
contacts.
• Use only the supplied AD-420 AC adapter.
Do not use any other AC adapter.
• 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.
The handset can be
placed face up or
face down in the base
for charging.
• 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.

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 cord 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.

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.
Warning!
Please do not attempt to unplug any appliance during an electrical
storm.
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. The equipment cannot be used on public coin phone
service provided by the telephone company. Connection to party line
service is subject to state tariffs. (Contact the state public utility
commission, public service commission or corporation commission for
information.)
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.

Precautions!
EXAI378 2/8/2 6:57 PM Page 60
Radio Interference
Telephone Line Outlets
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 the antenna on the
unit is fully extended when needed.
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.
There are two types of phone outlets:
More Than One Cordless Telephone
Applying Power to the Base
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
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.
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 bottom 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.
Adapter Safety Features
Do not use an outlet controlled by a wall switch.
Use only the Uniden AC Adapter supplied with this phone.
Selecting a Location
Before choosing a location for your new phone, there are some
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.
