“HANDSET 1” appears on the display of the cordless handset when the cordless handset is properly seated on the charge terminals of the charger. Charge the battery pack for more than

12 hours so that the battery is fully charged. The CHARGE lamp remains lit even after charging is completed.

About the station number

When you start charging the battery, “HANDSET 1” appears on the display of the cordless handset. This shows the ID number for each cordless handset and base phone of the system, called “station number.” The station number of the base phone is set to 0 and that of the cordless handset (supplied with the base phone) is set to

1 at the factory. The station number of the cordless handset newly added to the system will be one of the number 2 through 4 in the order of registration. (See

“Registering additional cordless handsets” on page 25.)

Battery duration

A fully charged battery pack lasts for about:

• Approx. 5 hours when you use the cordless handset continuously

• Approx. 6 days when the cordless handset is in standby mode.

OLD MASSAGE RING OFF

Notes

• The battery pack will gradually discharge over a long period of time, even when not in use.

• If you leave the battery pack in the cordless handset without charging it, the battery pack will be completely discharged.

It may require several times of charging to recover to its full capacity.

• While charging, the battery pack warms up. This is not a malfunction.

To obtain the best performance from the battery

Do not place the cordless handset on the charger after each call. The battery works best if the cordless handset is returned to the charger after two or three calls. However, do not leave the cordless handset off the charger for a long period of time as this will completely discharge the battery pack.

When to purchase a new battery pack

If the battery lasts only a few minutes even after 12 hours of charging, the usable life of the battery has expired and needs replacement.

Contact your local Sony authorized dealer or service center, and ask for a Sony BP-T38 rechargeable battery pack.

Note

Battery life may vary depending on usage condition and ambient temperature.

Notes

• When making a call on the cordless handset, “ ” appears on the display indicating the receiver sensitivity with the base phone. Three bars indicate a good reception, no bar indicates a bad reception. When calling from an area with poor reception, you may experience interference or the call may be disconnected, so try to use the cordless handset in areas that have a good reception.

• When you increase the sound volume, in some cases the back ground noise may be increased as well. You should adjust the volume accordingly.

• If the cordless handset beeps every second during a conversation and “ ” appears on the display, move closer to the base phone; otherwise, you will hear five short error beeps and “NO CONNECTION” will appear on the display, and the call will be disconnected after 30 seconds.

• While talking with an outside caller via the base phone, you cannot make a call with the cordless handset. If you press (TALK), “NO CONNECTION” appears on the display and you will hear five short error beeps.

• When the talk time exceeds 9:59:59, the display counts from 0:00:00 again.

If the battery becomes weak during a call

The cordless handset will beep twice per second, “BATTERY LOW” appears on the display. Finish your call and replace the cordless handset on the charger to charge the battery pack.

For optimum performance, charge the battery for a full 12 hours.

Note that during the initial charge time (approx. 10 minutes), “PLEASE

WAIT...” and “BATTERY LOW” appear on the display and the cordless handset cannot be used.

After “BATTERY LOW” turns off, you may be able to use the cordless handset, but the battery duration will be very short; thus it is recommended that you fully charge the battery before next use.

Caller ID Features

Understanding the Caller ID service

Caller ID allows the caller’s phone number to be shown on the display before you answer the call. In order to use this feature, you must first subscribe to Caller ID service. The name of this service may vary depending on your telephone company.

To use this feature, be sure to enter the area code (see page 17).

When you receive a call

The phone number appears on the display as shown in the following example.

If your Caller ID service includes the caller name service or if the phone number stored in the Phone Directory matches with the Caller

ID data phone number, the caller’s name also appears on the display

(up to 15 letters).

The caller’s name will appear by the name stored in the Phone

Directory if you receive a call from a phone number which is stored in the Phone Directory.

• The caller’s phone number and/or name will not appear in the following cases:

—“UNKNOWN NUMBER/NAME/CALLER” (out of area) : when the call is made through a telephone company which does not offer Caller ID service

—“BLOCKED NUMBER/NAME/CALL” (private) : when the call is

“blocked”. For privacy reasons, many states allow callers the option to prevent his or her telephone data from being displayed on the other party’s Caller ID display.

Note

The memory match function does not work with “UNKNOWN NUMBER/

NAME/CALLER” or “BLOCKED NUMBER/NAME/CALL” calls; and it may not work with calls made from an office which uses multiple lines because the number does not always match the one you stored in this phone.
