10

US

CAUTION: • Should you experience intermittent loss of audio during a conversation, try moving closer to the base or move base phone away from other noise sources.

• The cordless telephone operates at a frequency that may cause interference to nearby TVs and VCRs; the base phone should not be placed near or on the top of a TV or VCR; and, if interference is experienced, moving the cordless telephone farther away from the TV or VCR will often reduce or eliminate the interference.

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

continued

Getting Started

US

Step 3: Preparing the battery pack (continued)

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.

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-T24 rechargeable battery pack.

Note

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

Step 4

Entering the area code

When you use this phone for the first time, or move to an area that has a different area code, you must enter the area code. Otherwise, you cannot use some functions of this phone and the Caller ID functions.

If you live in an area where calls from or to other local areas can also be made by 10-digit dialing

(area code + number), you can register up to 5 local area codes with this telephone to take advantage of this system. See “To enter the local area code (For 10 digits phone number users)” on page 17.

Case 2.

If 10-digit dialing (area code + number) is required for all local calls in your area, see

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 “OUT OF RANGE” 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), “BASEPHONE IN USE” appears on the display and you will hear a busy tone.

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

EZfit

The “EZfit” adjusts to fit any shape ear, thereby ensuring clear voice reception.

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. Or, to continue your phone conversation with the base phone, press (HOLD) on the cordless handset to hold the line, and then pick up the handset or press

(SPEAKERPHONE) on the base phone.

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.

Tip

You can switch between phone conversations via the handset and those via the speakerphone, simply by picking up the handset while talking over the speakerphone, or by pressing (SPEAKERPHONE) while talking over the handset.

To obtain the best speakerphone performance

• You may not be able to hear the other party’s voice in a noisy place.

Therefore, use the speakerphone in a quiet room.

• Do not bring your hand or other object too close to the microphone or you will hear a shrill noise (“feedback”).

• When the speaker volume is loud, or the base phone has been placed close to a wall, you may find that the volume drops suddenly. This is due to a circuit in the telephone designed to protect against feedback. In such cases, lower the speaker volume slightly.

• When “ p” is displayed on the right end of the phone number on the redial list in step 2, it means that some number follows the displayed phone number.

Moreover, when the phone number is selected by turning Jog Dial, all of the phone number is displayed in two lines.

• If you redial the same number repeatedly, this number will only be counted as one number of the total five registered numbers that can be redialed.

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 15).

When you receive a call

The phone number appears on the display with the date and time as shown in the following example.

If your Caller ID service includes the caller name service or if the phone number stored in the one-touch dialing, or 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 one-touch dialing or Phone

Directory if you receive a call from a phone number which is stored on one of the

ONE-TOUCH DIAL buttons or in the Phone Directory.

When you answer the call, the Caller ID display changes to the “TALK” or

“SPEAKERPHONE” display.

Notes

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

- “OUT OF AREA”: when the call is made through a telephone company which does not offer

Caller ID service (including international calls).

- “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.

• If the call is from an office which uses multiple lines, the displayed phone number may not match the number you use to call the extension.

About the memory match function

The name stored in the one-touch dialing or Phone Directory will appear on the display if you receive a call from a phone number which is stored on one of the ONE-

TOUCH DIAL buttons (see page 41) or in the Phone Directory (see page 45).

In addition, the ringer sound will change to a higher tone from the second ring and

“9” will appear to the right of the displayed name if you receive a call from a VIP registered phone number on the base phone or the cordless handset.

Note

The memory match function does not work with “OUT OF AREA” or “PRIVATE” 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.

This is a new service that combines the two services.

Even though you now have a “Caller ID with call waiting” compatible phone, unless you subscribe to the combined “Caller ID with call waiting” service, you will not be able to see the name and number of the second caller.

When a new call comes in while you are talking, the caller’s name and/or phone number of the new call appears on the display for about
