Important Safety Instructions!
When using your telephone equipment, basic safety precautions
should always be followed to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock and
injury to persons, including the following:
 This unit is NOT waterproof. DO NOT expose this unit to rain or
moisture.
 Do not use this product near water, for example, near a bath tub,
wash bowl, kitchen sink or laundry tub, in a wet basement or near
a swimming pool.
 Avoid using a telephone (other than cordless type) during an
electrical storm. There may be a remote risk of electric shock from
lightning.
 Do not use the telephone to report a gas leak in the vicinity of the
leak.
 Use only the power cord and batteries indicated in this manual.
Do not dispose of batteries in a fire. They may explode. Check with

or mutilate the battery. Disconnect the battery before shipping this
product.
For more details, see the Important Information section.
Getting Started
Installing Your Phone
Charge the Battery
1. Unpack all handsets, battery packs,
and battery covers. If you need to
remove a battery 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 battery connector will only fit one way.)
3. Push the connector in until it clicks into place; tug gently on the
wires to make sure the battery pack is securely connected.
4. Replace the battery cover and slide it into place.
5. Connect the AC adapters to the DC IN 9V jack on the base (and on
the charger for DECT1015+1). Set the plug(s) into the notch(es).
6. Plug the other end of the adapters into standard 240V AC outlets.
7. Place one handset in the base (and the other in the charger for
DECT1015+1) with the display(s) facing forward. The display on
each handset should light up; if it doesn’t, reseat the handset or
try plugging the AC adapter into a different outlet.
##Charge all handsets completely (about 15 hours) before using
them.
Connect the Telephone Cord
Use the telephone cord to connect the TEL LINE jack on the base to a
standard telephone wall jack.
3
Test the Connection
1. Pick up the handset from the cradle and press Talk. You should
hear a dial tone, and the display should say Talk.
 If you don't hear a dial tone or the display says Check Tel Line,
try checking the connection between the base and the phone
jack.
2. Make a quick test call. (Press End to hang up.)
 If there is a lot of noise, see page 16 for tips on avoiding
interference.
3. Test all your handsets the same way. If you can't get a dial tone,
try moving the handset closer to the base.

calls. Contact your telephone provider for more information.
Caller ID list
-- When a call comes in, the phone displays the
number and name (if available) of the caller.
-- The phone saves the information for the last 30
received calls to the CID list.
-- When it’s in standby, the handset shows how
many calls came in since the last time you
checked the CID list.
Redial list
-- Each handset
remembers the
last 5 numbers
you dialed on it.
The redial list is
separate for each
handset.
##All handsets share the CID list; only one handset can access
the CID list at a time.

2. When you hear the prompt that tells you to enter the number,
open the phonebook and find the entry that contains your code
number. Press Menu/select; the phone transmits the code number
entered in the previous step. If you change your mind, use
Phonebook/left to close the phonebook.

Weak or Hard To Hear Audio
If a caller’s voice sounds weak or soft, the signal might be blocked by
large metal objects or walls; you might also be too far from the base, or
the handset’s battery may be weak.
 Try moving around while you’re on a call or moving closer to the
base to see if the sound gets louder.
 Make sure the handset’s battery is fully charged.
 Try adjusting the earpiece volume.

common interference sources.

moving the suspected source so
it’s not between the handset and

If static is on all handsets or in all
locations:
-- Check near the base for the
source of interference.
-- Try moving the base away from
a suspected source, or turn off
the source if possible.
-- If the base has an adjustable
antenna, try raising the antenna
so it stands straight up.
-- If you have any service that uses
the phone line, you might need
a filter (see below).
Installing a Line Filter or DSL Filter
Sometimes, broadband Internet services that use the telephone line
can interfere with phones. One of these services−DSL−often causes
static on telephones. A DSL filter or telephone line filter usually solves
this problem. The technician who installed your DSL service might
have left some filters for you; if not, call your DSL provider or look in
any electronics store.
Plug the DSL filter into the telephone wall jack and plug your phone’s
base into the filter. Make a test call to make sure the noise is gone.
Liquid Damage
Moisture and liquid can damage your cordless phone.
 If the exterior housing of the handset or base is exposed to
moisture or liquid, wipe off the liquid, and use as normal.
 If moisture or liquid is inside the plastic housing (i.e. liquid can
be heard in the phone or liquid has entered the handset battery
compartment or vent openings on the base), follow these steps:

should provide about 10
hours of talk time and about
7 days of standby time.
For best results, return the
handset to the cradle after
each call to keep it fully
charged.
• When the battery gets too
low, the handset shows a low battery alert. If you hear a strange beep during
a call, check the display: if you see the low battery alert, finish your conversation as quickly as possible and return the handset to the cradle. If the handset
is in standby, none of the keys will operate.
• With normal use, the battery should last about one year. Replace the battery
when the talk time becomes short even when the battery is charged. To buy a
replacement battery, visit our website listed on the front cover.
Rechargeable Nickel-Cadmium Battery Warning
• This equipment contains a rechargeable Nickel-Cadmium (Ni-Cd) battery.
• Do not short-circuit the battery.
• The rechargeable Ni-Cd batteries contained in this equipment may explode if
disposed of in a fire.
• Do not charge the battery used in this equipment in any charger other than
the one designed to charge this battery as specified in the owner's manual.
Using another charger may damage the battery or cause it to explode.

Mounting the Base unit on a Wall
You can mount your base directly to the wall using the horizontally
aligned mounting slots at the back of the base unit. 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.
 Mount your phone within distance of a working phone jack.
 Make sure the wall material is capable of supporting the weight of
the base and handset.
 Use screws 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), 60mm apart. Note the horizontal alignment
of the screw holes! Allow about 2mm between the wall and
screwheads for mounting the phone.
