Getting Started
Installing Your Phone
Charge the Battery
1. Unpack all handsets,
battery packs,
and battery
covers. If
you need to
remove a
cover, press
in on the
notch and slide the cover down
and off.
2. Line up the battery connector
with the jack inside the handset;
the connector only fits one way.
3. Push the connector in until
it clicks into place; tug gently
on the wires to make sure the
battery is securely connected.
4. Replace the battery cover and
slide it into place.
5. Use an AC adapter to connect
the power jack on the base to a
regular indoor (120V AC) power
outlet. Connect any chargers the
same way.
6. Place a handset in the base with
the display facing forward. If
the display doesn’t light up,
reseat the handset or connect
the base to a different outlet. For
2 or more handsets, place each
handset in a charger.
##Charge all handsets
completely (about 15 hours)
before using.
Connect the Telephone Cord
Use the telephone cord to connect
the TEL LINE jack on the base to a
standard telephone wall jack.
Test the Connection
1. Pick up the handset and press
Talk . The handset sounds a dial
tone, and the display shows Talk.
––If you don't hear a dial tone or
the display says Check Tel Line,
check the connection between
the base and the phone jack.
2. Make a quick test call. (Press END/
CLEAR to hang up.)
––If you keep hearing a dial tone,
change to pulse dialing.
––If there’s a lot of noise, check
for interference (see page 21).
3. Test all handsets the same way.
If you can't get a dial tone, move
the handset closer to the base.
Changing to Pulse Dialing
Your phone uses tone dialing by
default. If your phone company uses
pulse dialing, you need to change
your phone’s dial mode.
1. On a handset, press Menu/select
and choose Global Setup.
2. Select Dial Mode then Pulse.
You’ll hear a confirmation tone.
To send DTMF tones during a call
(e.g., for an automated response
system), press * to temporarily
switch to tone dialing. When you
hang up, the phone automatically
returns to pulse dialing.

Attaching Optional Wall Mount Bracket
You can order a wall-mount bracket from the Uniden website. Follow the
instructions that come with the bracket.
Setting Up the CellLink™ Bluetooth™ Connection
The new D1780-BT with CellLink technology can connect with mobile
phones that support the Bluetooth V2.1 handsfree profile.
• If you are not certain of the profiles supported by your Bluetooth phone
or if you have difficulty pairing your phone to the D1780-BT, see the
manual that came with your phone.
• With the CellLink feature, you can essentially treat your cellular phone
as a second line. You can use the D1780-BT handset to make and receive
calls on your cellular phone number, put cellular calls on hold, and
transfer calls to other handsets. See page 5 for more information.
• Bluetooth wireless devices have a maximum range of about 33 feet (10
m); the actual range will vary depending on local conditions (obstacles,
battery power, interference, etc.).
Pair your Bluetooth phone
Pairing “introduces” the Bluetooth device and D1780-BT and gives them
permission to connect to each other. In most cases, once you pair a phone
to the D1780-BT, these two devices connect automatically whenever they
detect each other. (If you have to manually reconnect each time, check the
Bluetooth settings on your cellular phone.) You can pair your Bluetooth
devices through the D1780-BT handset.
1. Press Menu/Select to display the handset’s main menu.
2. Select the Bluetooth Setup menu, then select the Add Cellular submenu.
The base goes into pairing mode when the handset displays Search &
select from Cellular D1780-2BT PIN: 0000.
3. On your Bluetooth phone, start a search for other Bluetooth devices.
(This process may take several seconds and it will be different for
each mobile phone. See your phone owner’s manual for detailed
4. Your phone should discover a device called D1780-2BT or Handsfree
device. When your phone asks if you want to pair with this device,
answer yes.
4 - English
5. If your phone prompts you for a PIN code or password to pair with the
D1780-BT, enter 0000 (four zeroes).
6. When your phone accepts the Bluetooth connection, the D1780-BT
sounds a confirmation tone. The Bluetooth device number icon on the
base and the handset display light up.
##Most cell phones automatically transfer the audio to a Bluetooth
device as soon as it pairs; if yours does not, look in your cell
phone’s Bluetooth setup for a “transfer audio” or “send audio to
device” option.
To test the connection
1. Pick up the handset from the cradle.
2. Dial the number you want to call, then press Cell on the handset. You
may not hear a dial tone or ringing, but the handset display says Talk.
3. Make sure the call connects and you can hear clearly. (When you’re
finished, press END/CLEAR to hang up.)
• The D1780-BT remembers the pairing information for your cellular;
if it loses connection with your phone for any reason (e.g., the cell
phone travels out of range, runs out of charge, etc.), the D1780-BT
can automatically reconnect the next time your phone becomes
Using the D1780-BT with two Bluetooth phones
• The D1780-BT can save the pairing information for two different
Bluetooth phones, but it can only use one cellular line at any given time.
For example, if you pair the D1780-BT to two Bluetooth phones, when
you press Cell on the handset, the D1780-BT asks which phone you want
to connect to.
• If you are using the D1780-BT to talk on one Bluetooth phone, the
D1780-BT will not ring if a call comes in on another phone.
• You can set a different ring tone for each paired cell phone (see page 10).
• To pair another Bluetooth phone, just repeat the pairing procedure with
the new phone. (If the paired phone interferes when you’re pairing the
new one, just turn off Bluetooth on the paired phone until you finish
pairing the new one.)

Installing a Line Filter or DSL Filter
A telephone line filter or DSL filter prevents services that use the phone
line from causing interference on your phone. To get a line filter, contact
your service provider or look in an electronics store.
Plug the filter into the telephone wall jack and plug the base into the filter.
Make a test call to make sure the noise is gone.
Liquid Damage
CAUTION: If the base is covered in liquid, disconnect the adapter
& phone cord from the wall before touching it.
If the liquid is only on the exterior housing of the base or handset, wipe it
off and use as normal. If you can hear liquid inside the housing:
1. Remove all compartment covers, and disconnect all cables and cords.
2. If liquid is leaking from any vent or hole, turn the phone so that vent
faces down. If not, place the largest vent face down.
3. Let dry for at least 3 days. Check for liquid inside the phone before
replacing compartment covers & reconnecting cords.
