Installation
You must install and charge
the handset battery before
using the cordless handset.
STOP!
See pages 8-9 for easy
instructions.
Install the telephone base close to a telephone jack and a power outlet not
controlled by a wall switch. The telephone base can be placed on a flat surface
or vertically mounted on the wall (see page 10). For optimum range and better
reception, place the telephone base in a central and open location.
You may hear interference if your cellular phone is too close to the telephone
base during a CELLULAR call. Make sure that your Bluetooth enabled cellular
phone is between one to 12 feet away from the telephone base in order
to maintain a clear and consistent connection between your Bluetooth cell
phone, telephone base and cell tower.
If you subscribe to high-speed Internet service (digital subscriber line - DSL)
through your telephone line(s), you must install a DSL filter between the
telephone base and the telephone wall jack (see the following page). The
filter prevents noise and caller ID problems caused by DSL interference. Please
contact your DSL service provider for more information about DSL filters.
Your product may be shipped with a protective sticker covering the handset or
telephone base display - remove it before use.
For customer service or product information, visit our website at

will need to re-connect to that device manually,
refer to the section below for details.
Manual connection
To manually re-connect a paired device, make
sure the Bluetooth feature is turned on in your

Bluetooth
Bluetooth setup
Turning off the auto connection
If you do not want the telephone base to reconnect to a paired device automatically after
it is disconnected, you can turn off the auto
connection feature manually. In order to turn off
the auto connection, you will need to initiate a
disconnection from the paired cellular phone; this
will transmit a signal to the telephone base and
disable the auto connection.
While the cellular phone is connected to the
telephone base, find the cellular phone’s Bluetooth
device list and select AT&T DECT 6.0 to manually
disconnect the device. (If disconnection is not an
option on your cellular phone, you may need to
disable Bluetooth or unpair the telephone base.)

instructions. The telephone base will not search
and re-connect to this cellular phone until this
feature is activated again.
To resume the auto connection
NOTE: If the connection
between the paired
device and the telephone
base does not resume by
manually connecting the
device on the paired
device list, you will need
to unpair or deregister
the device from the
cellular phone. Make
sure the device is no
longer on the paired list
after deregistration; then
follow the steps in
Pairing a device on
page 17 to start the
pairing procedures again.
To resume the auto connection between the
paired device and the telephone base, you will
need to connect the device manually. Make sure
the Bluetooth feature is turned on in your cellular
phone. Select AT&T DECT 6.0 from the paired
device list in your cellular phone to reconnect.
If the connection is successfully resumed, the
status icon will display on the cordless handset
screen, and the light of the Bluetooth button on
the telephone base will be on steadily.
Replace a paired device
If you want to pair and connect a new device when
there is already a device paired with the telephone
base, press and hold the Bluetooth button on the
telephone base until it is flashing, then start with
step two of Pairing a device on page 17. If you
do not pair a new device within two minutes, the
Bluetooth light on the telephone base will turn off
and the system will return to idle mode.

This product supports caller ID services provided
by most local telephone service companies.
Depending on your service subscription, you may
see the caller’s number, or the caller’s name and
number which are sent by the telephone company
after the first or second ring. Caller ID from the
HOME line allows you to see the name, number,
date and time of the incoming call. However,
caller ID from the CELLULAR line only shows the
number of the incoming call and the Bluetooth
name of the paired cellular phone; date and time
of the call will not be shown.
Caller ID with call waiting lets you see the name
and telephone number of the caller before
answering the telephone, even when on another
call. For incoming HOME calls, the time and date
will also be sent by the telephone service provider
along with the caller ID information. For incoming
CELLULAR calls, only the caller's number and the
Bluetooth name of the paired cellular phone will
be provided. These services are available only if
both you and the caller are in areas offering caller
ID service, and if both telephone companies use
compatible equipment.
Contact your local telephone company and
cellular service provider if:
• You have both caller ID and call waiting, but as
separate services (you may need to combine
these services).
• You have only caller ID service, or only call
waiting service.
• You don’t subscribe to any caller ID or call
waiting services.
You can use this product with regular caller
ID service, or you can use this product’s other
features without subscribing to either caller ID or
combined caller ID with call waiting service.

If you subscribe to caller ID services, provided by
your local telephone company and/or cellular
service provider, �����������������������������
the caller ID history stores
information about the last 50 incoming calls ����
for
both the HOME and CELLULAR lines.
Although the caller ID history records the caller
ID information of both lines, caller ID entries from
the CELLULAR line only provide the incoming
telephone number and the Bluetooth name
of the cellular phone. If the number on the
incoming CELLULAR call matches a number in
the directory, the name will be retrieved from the
matched directory entry. However, if the caller's
number is not provided from the CELLULAR line,
the screen will only display INCOMING CALL
without showing the Bluetooth name of the
device.
Review the caller ID history to find out who
called, to easily return the call, or to copy the
caller’s name and number into your directory.
The phone deletes the earliest entry when the log
is full to make room for new calls.
NOTE: Only one
handset can review the
caller ID history at a
time. If another handset
attempts to enter the
directory or caller ID
history, it will display
NOT AVAILABLE AT
THIS TIME.
If you answer a call before the information
appears on the screen, it will not be saved in the
caller ID history.
The caller ID history is stored in the telephone
base, and is shared by all handsets. Changes
made on any one handset will be reflected in all.

If the incoming telephone number exactly matches
a telephone number in your directory, the name that
appears on the screen will match the corresponding
name in your directory.
For example, if Christine Smith calls, her name will
appear as Chris if this is how you entered it into your
directory.
NOTE: The number shown by your caller ID will be in the
format sent by the phone company. The phone company
usually delivers ten-digit phone numbers (area code plus
phone number). If the telephone number of the caller
does not exactly match a number in your directory, the
name will appear as it is delivered by the phone company.
For example, if the phone company includes the area code
and the directory number does not, the name will appear
as delivered by the phone company.

About the answering system
Answering system and voicemail
Your telephone has both a digital answering
system and voicemail indication. Voicemail is
offered by your telephone service provider (fees
may apply). Your telephone’s answering system
and voicemail indication are independent features.
Each alerts you to new messages differently. For
more information on the voicemail indicators, see
page 23. To listen to your voicemail, you typically
dial an access number provided by your telephone
company, followed by a security code or PIN.
To listen to messages recorded on your digital
answering system, press
PLAY/STOP button on
the telephone base.
If you subscribe to caller ID/call waiting service
through your telephone service provider, you
can use your telephone answering system and
voicemail together. Set your answering system to
answer calls at least two rings earlier than your
voicemail is set to answer. For example, set your
voicemail to answer calls after six rings and set
your answering system to answer after four rings.
Some voicemail providers may program the delay
before answering calls in seconds instead of rings;
in this case, allow six seconds per ring when
determining the appropriate setting. By doing this,
if you are on a call, or if the answering system is
busy recording a message and you receive another
call, the second caller can leave a voicemail
message.

Appendix F
Important safety information
Especially about cordless telephones
• Privacy: The same features that make a cordless telephone convenient create
some limitations. Telephone calls are transmitted between the telephone base
and the handset by radio waves, so there is a possibility that your cordless
telephone conversations could be intercepted by radio receiving equipment
within range of the cordless handset. For this reason, you should not think
of cordless telephone conversations as being as private as those on
corded telephones.
• Electrical power: The telephone base of this cordless telephone must be
connected to a working electrical outlet which is not controlled by a wall
switch. Calls cannot be made from the handset if the telephone base is
unplugged, switched off, or if the electrical power is interrupted.
• Potential TV interference: Some cordless telephones operate at frequencies
that may cause interference to TVs and VCRs. To minimize or prevent such
interference, do not place the telephone base of the cordless telephone 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.
• Rechargeable batteries: This product contains nickel-metal hydride
rechargeable batteries. Exercise care in handling batteries in order not to
create a short circuit with conductive material such as rings, bracelets, and
keys. The battery or conductor may overheat and cause harm. Observe proper
polarity between the battery and the battery charger.
• Nickel-metal hydride rechargeable batteries: Dispose of these batteries in
a safe manner. Do not burn or puncture. Like other batteries of this type, if
burned or punctured, they could release caustic material which could cause
injury.
The RBRC™ Seal means that the manufacturer is voluntarily participating in an
industry program to collect and recycle nickel-metal hydride rechargeable batteries
when taken out of service within the United States. These batteries may be taken to
a participating local retailer of replacement batteries or recycling center. Or you
may call 1 (800) 8-BATTERY for locations accepting spent Ni-MH batteries.

Important safety information
Precautions for users of implanted cardiac pacemakers
Cardiac pacemakers (applies only to digital cordless telephones):
Wireless Technology Research, LLC (WTR), an independent research entity, led
a multidisciplinary evaluation of the interference between portable wireless
telephones and implanted cardiac pacemakers. Supported by the U.S. Food
and Drug Administration, WTR recommends to physicians that:
Pacemaker patients
• Should keep wireless telephones at least six inches from the pacemaker.
• Should NOT place wireless telephones directly over the pacemaker, such as
in a breast pocket, when it is turned ON.
• Should use the wireless telephone at the ear opposite the pacemaker.
WTR’s evaluation did not identify any risk to bystanders with pacemakers from
other persons using wireless telephones.
Especially about telephone answering systems
Two-way recording: This unit does not sound warning beeps to inform
the other party that the call is being recorded. To ensure that you are in
compliance with any federal or state regulations regarding recording a
telephone call, you should start the recording process and then inform the
other party that you are recording the conversation.
