D. Choose the dialing mode
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 noise sources such as a window by a
street with heavy traffic
Avoid heat sources, such as radiators,
air ducts, and sunlight
Avoid microwave ovens
Avoid television sets and other
electronic equipment
Avoid excessive moisture, extremely
low temperatures, dust, mechanical
vibration, or shock
Avoid personal computers
Choose a central location
Avoid other cordless telephones
• Be sure there is sufficient space to raise the base antenna to a vertical position.
• 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 and fluorescent
lighting.
• The base can be placed on a desk, tabletop, or mounted on a standard wall plate.

NOTE: Use only the Uniden Battery (BT-905) supplied with your
phone. Replacement batteries are also available through the
Uniden Parts Department.
Battery use time (per charge)
From fully charged
• 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, the talk/batt low LED flashes when the battery pack
is low.
If the phone is in use, the talk/batt low LED flashes and the handset beeps. Complete your
conversation as quickly as possible and return the handset to the base for charging.
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.
NOTE: 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 each telephone call.
C. Connect the base unit
1) Connect the AC adapter to the DC IN 9V jack and a
standard 120V AC wall outlet.
2) Wrap the cord inside the molded wiring channel as shown.
3) Set the base unit on a desk or tabletop, and place the
handset on the base unit.
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.
NOTICE: Place the power cord so it does not create a trip hazard or where it could become chafed
and create a fire or electrical hazard.
NOTES: • Use only the supplied AD-310 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.
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.

EXP2240 1/18/2 10:50 AM Page 4
5) Connect the telephone line cord to the TEL LINE jack and a
telephone outlet once the handset is fully charged.
TIP:
If your telephone outlet isn’t modular, contact
your telephone company for assistance.
Modular
D. Choose the dialing mode
Most phone systems use tone dialing which sends DTMF tones through the phone lines. However
some phone systems still use pulse dialing such as in rural areas. The default setting is tone dialing.
Depending on your dialing system, set the mode as follows:
1) Press and hold flash until you hear a confirmation tone.
2) To set the dial mode for pulse dialing, press #. Or to set the dial mode for tone dialing, press
/tone. A confirmation tone sounds to indicate the setting is complete.
• If you are not sure of your dialing system, set for tone dialing. Make a trial call. If the call connects,
leave the setting as is, otherwise set for pulse dialing.
• If your phone dialing system requires pulse dialing and you need to send DTMF tones for certain
situations during a call, you may “switch-over” to tone dialing. (Refer to “Tone Dialing Switch-over”).

Terminology
Throughout this manual, terms such as Standby and Talk Mode are used. Below is the terminology
explanation.
• Standby Mode - The handset is not in use, off the base, and talk has not been pressed. A dial
tone is not present.
• Talk Mode - The handset is off the base and talk has been pressed enabling a dial tone.
Adjusting the Ringer and Earpiece Volume
Ringer tone
When the phone is in standby mode, pressing the v key on the handset selects the handset ringer
tone. There are two ringer tones. Continue pressing the v key to listen to all tones. The phone keeps
the last ringer tone setting selected.
Earpiece volume
The handset earpiece volume settings (Low, Medium and High) can only be adjusted during a call.
Press v repeatedly to select Low, Medium and High. When you hang up, the phone keeps the last
volume setting selected.
Ringer Mute
The end key can be used to temporarily mute the ringer tone. When the handset is off the base and
the phone is ringing, press the end key and the ringer tone will be temporarily silenced. The ringer
tone will return to normal starting with the next incoming call.
Tone Dialing Switch-over
Some telephone companies use equipment that requires pulse dialing
(sometimes referred to as rotary dialing). If you need to enter tone dialing digits,
you can switch-over to tone dialing during the call. For example, entering your
bank account number after you have called your bank.
Initially make your call with the pulse dialing mode. Once your call connects,
press /tone. Enter the desired number. These digits will be sent as tone
dialing. This special number can be stored in a memory location. This is
referred to as Chain Dialing. Once the call ends, the tone mode is canceled and pulse dialing mode
resumes.
*
NOTE: The tone feature only applies when the dial mode is set to pulse.
Traveling Out-of-Range
During a call, as you begin to move your handset too far from your base unit, noise increases. If you
pass the range limits of the base unit, your call will terminate within 1 minute.
Selecting a Different Channel
If you encounter interference while using your phone, you can manually change the phones channel
for clear operation. This function works only when the phone is in use.
Press channel. The talk/batt low LED flashes, indicating the phone is changing to another channel.

Flash and Call Waiting
If you have “call waiting” service and a call waiting tone sounds while you are
on a call, press flash to accept the waiting call. There is a short pause, then
you will hear the new caller. To return to the original caller, press flash again.
NOTE: You must subscribe through your local telephone company to receive
Call Waiting Service.
Storing a Phone Number in Memory
Your EXP2240 Series has 10 memory locations for storing important telephone
numbers.
1) Remove the handset from the base.
2) Press m. The talk/batt low LED flashes.
3) Enter the phone number, up to 16 digits. If a pause is needed during the
dialing sequence, press redial/p to insert a pause. Each pause counts as a
digit and represents a two second delay in time between digits as they are
sent.
4) Press m again.
5) Enter the memory location (0-9) on the keypad. Memory 1 is reserved for
RocketDial. You can store data in this location by pressing 1. A tone indicates that the number is
stored. If you enter a number in a location that has a previously stored number it will overwrite the
existing number without warning.
NOTES: • The pause button counts as one digit. Pressing redial/p more than once increases the
length of pause between numbers.
• You have 30 seconds after pressing m to enter the number you wish to store. Otherwise,
the handset will beep rapidly.
• You cannot store numbers in RocketDial.
Dialing a Stored Number
Using the memory location features
1) Press talk, then press m.
2) Enter the memory location (0-9) on the keypad. The stored number automatically dials.
NOTE: If you select a memory location that does not have a stored number, the handset will beep
rapidly and the phone will not dial.

EXP2240 1/18/2 10:50 AM Page 7
One-touch RocketDial
Your phone is equipped with “One-touch RocketDial” for instant dialing. It is
used to dial the phone number stored in memory location 1. (See “Storing a
Phone Number in Memory”.)
To instantly dial the phone number stored in memory location 1, simply press
RocketDial. (There is no need to press talk. The phone will automatically dial.)
If you press RocketDial, and a phone number is not stored in memory location
1, the phone will beep rapidly and will not dial.
Chain Dialing
The memory locations on the handset are not limited to phone numbers. You can also store a group of
numbers (up to 16 digits) that you need to enter once your call connects. This is referred to as Chain
Dialing.
An example of this is a bank account number. Once you have called your bank, and are prompted to enter
the account number, simply press m and the location number where the special number has been stored.
Store your special number in memory as you would a phone number. (Refer to “Storing a Phone
Number in Memory”.)
Erasing a Stored Number from Memory
1) Remove the handset from the base unit.
2) Press m twice.
3) Press the memory location (0-9). A tone indicates that the stored number is erased from memory.
NOTE: You cannot erase the phone numbers by using the RocketDial. This is the number stored in
memory location 1.
Changing the Digital Security Code
The digital security code is an identification code used to connect the handset and the base unit.
Normally, setting the code is not necessary.
The first time you charge your handset, the security code is automatically set. In the rare situation that
you suspect another cordless telephone is using the same security code, you can change the code.
1) Remove the handset from the base unit. Press and hold find handset on the base.
2) The handset begins emitting a paging sound. While holding find handset for at least 3 seconds,
place the handset on the base unit. The paging sound stops. Leave the handset on the base for
more than 3 seconds. A new random security code is set.
NOTE: If the handset battery pack is completely discharged or the battery pack is removed, the digital
security code will be lost. If this happens, a new security code is set automatically next time
the battery pack is charged.

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.
strain relief notch on the bottom of the base.
Radio Interference
NOTE:
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.
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
If the AC adapter furnished with this phone has a
polarized line plug (a plug having one blade wider
than the other), this plug will fit into the power
outlet only one way. If you are unable to insert
the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the
plug.
Do not alter the shape of the blades of the
polarized plug!
NOTE:
If you cannot plug the AC adapter into the outlet, contact
someone about replacing the outlet.
Plug the AC Adapter into a standard 120 VAC wall outlet.
Do not use an outlet controlled by a wall switch.
