Installing the Phone
Choosing the Best Location
When choosing a location for your new phone, here are some important guidelines you should consider:
•
•
•
•
•
•
The location should be close to both a phone jack and a power outlet that is not controlled by a wall switch.
The base and handset should be kept away from sources of electrical noise such as motors, microwave ovens,
and fluorescent lighting.
Don't place the base in direct sunlight or subject it to high temperatures. The battery may not charge properly.
For better reception, place the base as high as possible.
The base should be placed in an open area for optimum range and reception.
If your home has specially wired alarm equipment connected to a phone line, be sure that installing the system
does not disable your alarm equipment. If you have questions about what will disable alarm equipment, contact
your telephone company or a qualified installer.
Wall Mounting the Base
This phone can be mounted on any standard wall plate.
1. Snap the wall mount adapter into the notches on the base top.
2. Plug the AC adapter into the DC IN 9V jack.
CAUTION: To avoid risk of fire and shock, only use
the Uniden AD-800 AC adapter.
3. Wrap the AC adapter cord inside the molded wiring channel as
shown.
4. Plug the AC adapter into a standard 120V AC wall outlet. DO
NOT use an AC outlet controlled by a wall switch.
13

conversation as quickly as possible, and return the handset to the charging
cradle.
Battery Replacement and Handling
When the talk time becomes short, even after the battery is recharged, please replace the battery. With normal usage,
your battery should last about one year. A replacement Uniden adapter or battery may be purchased by calling
Uniden's Parts department (see back cover page).
Warning
To avoid the risk of personal injury or property damage from fire or electrical shock, use
only BT-909 battery pack with your phone.
Caution:
Do not remove the batteries from the handset to charge them.
Never throw the battery into a fire, disassemble them, or heat them.
Do not remove or damage the battery casing.
Change the Batteries Annually
Even when the battery pack is not being used, it will gradually discharge over a long period of time. With average use,
your phone’s battery should last approximately one year. To order replacement batteries, please contact Uniden’s
Parts Department (see back cover page).
58
Clean the Battery Contacts
To maintain a good charge, clean the charging contacts on the
handset once a month. Dampen a cloth with plain water. Gently rub
the damp cloth over the charging contacts until all visible dirt is
removed. Dry the contacts thoroughly before returning the handset to
the charging cradle.
Caution: Do not use paint thinner, benzene, alcohol, or
other chemical products. Doing so may discolor the
surface of the telephone and damage the finish.

NOTICE: According to telephone company reports, AC
electrical surges, typically resulting from lightning strikes, are
very destructive to telephone equipment connected to AC
power sources. To minimize damage from these types of
surges, a surge arrestor is recommended.
The REN is used to determine the number of devices that may
be connected to a telephone line. Excessive RENs on a
telephone line may result in the devices not ringing in response
to an incoming call. In most but not all areas, the sum of RENs
should not exceed five (5.0). To be certain of the number of
devices that may be connected to a line, as determined by the
total RENs, contact the telephone provider. For products
approved after July 23, 2001, the REN for this product is part of
the product identifier that has the format US:AAAEQ##TXXXX.
The digits represented by ## are the REN without a decimal
point (e.g., 03 is a REN of 0.3). For earlier products, the REN is
separately shown on the label.
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

I.C. Notice
Radio Interference
Terminal Equipment
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.
NOTICE:This equipment meets the applicable Industry Canada
Terminal Equipment Technical Specifications. This is confirmed
by the registration number. The abbreviation, IC, before the
registration number signifies that registration was performed
based on a Declaration of Conformity indicating that Industry
Canada technical specifications were met. It does not imply
that Industry Canada approved the equipment.
NOTICE:The Ringer Equivalence Number (REN) for this
terminal equipment is marked on the equipment itself. The
REN assigned to each terminal equipment provides an
indication of the maximum number of terminals allowed to be
connected to a telephone interface. The termination on an
interface may consist of any combination of devices subject
only to the requirement that the sum of the Ringer Equivalence
Numbers of all the devices does not exceed five.
Radio Equipment
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.
The term "IC:" before the radio certification number only
signifies that Industry Canada technical specifications were
met. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1)
this device may not cause interference, and (2) this device
must accept any interference, including interference that may
cause undesired operation of the device. "Privacy of
communications may not be ensured when using this
telephone".
