UNIDEN COMPANY PHILOSOPHY
To bring outstanding wireless communication products to people’s lives throughout the world.
WELCOME
Congratulations on your purchase of the Uniden Multi-Handset Cordless System telephone. This unit is
different from conventional cordless telephones. When the base unit is connected to AC power and a
telephone line, it can support up to 4 handsets. Using extra handsets, you can establish a 3-way conference
call (2 handsets and an outside line), while two other handsets are making an intercom call. You can now
place a fully featured cordless handset anywhere in your home or office where AC power is available to
connect the handset chargers.
Note: The illustrations in this manual are intended as a guide and may differ from actual unit.

Once the call ends, the tone mode is canceled and pulse dialing mode resumes.
