Link to Cell
Link to cell feature
You can connect your base unit and cellular phone
using Bluetooth wireless technology, so that you
can make or answer cellular calls using your
phone system. This allows you to:
– use the unit to talk on cellular calls even if some
areas of your home have poor cellular
reception, simply by placing your cellular phone
in an area with good reception.
– talk on cellular calls even if your cellular phone
is in your pocket or bag.
– enjoy cordless cellular calls even if your cellular
phone plugged in and charging.
Important:
R Your cellular phone must support the Hands
Free Profile (HFP) specification.
R You may pair 2 cellular phones and 1 headset.
R The unit can be used to talk on 2 lines at the
same time (for example, 2 cellular lines, or the
landline and 1 cellular line).
R Only 2 Bluetooth devices can be used with the
unit at the same time (for example, 2 cellular
lines, or the headset and 1 cellular line).
R Locate your cellular phone near the base unit. If
the cellular phone is too close to the base unit
during a cellular call, you may hear noise. For
best performance, we recommend placing the
cellular phone between 0.6 m to 3 m (2 feet to
10 feet) away from the base unit.

Your cellular phone:
While the corresponding CELL indicator is
flashing, follow the instructions of your cellular
phone to enter the pairing mode.
R Depending on your cellular phone, it may
ask you to enter the Bluetooth PIN (default:
“0000”). If your cellular phone shows
PassKey confirmation on its display, follow
the directions to proceed.

The following settings are available:
– “Off”: Turn this feature off to use the ringer
tones of the handset and base unit. Caller
information is announced depending on the
Talking Caller ID setting (page 41).
– “On (with Talking CID)” (default): The
handset and base unit use your cellular phone’s
ringer tone. Caller information is announced
even if the Talking Caller ID is turned off.
– “On (without Talking CID)”: The
handset and base unit use your cellular phone’s
ringer tone. Caller information is not announced
even if the Talking Caller ID is turned on.
You can configure this setting using either the
base unit or one of the handsets.
Important:

For landline voicemail service subscribers
If you subscribe to a flat-rate service package that
includes Caller ID, call waiting, voicemail, and
unlimited local/regional/long distance calls, please
note the following:
R To use the voicemail service provided by your
phone service provider rather than the unit’s
answering system, turn off the answering
system (page 57).
R To use this unit’s answering system rather than
the voicemail service provided by your phone
service provider, please contact your phone
service provider to deactivate your voicemail
service.
If your phone service provider cannot do this:
– Set this unit’s “Ring count” setting so that
this unit’s answering system answers calls
before the voicemail service of your phone
service provider does. It is necessary to
check the number of rings required to activate
the voicemail service provided by your phone
service provider before changing this setting.
– Change the number of rings of the voicemail
service so that the answering system can
answer the call first. To do so, contact your
phone service provider.

Voicemail service for
landline
Voicemail is an automatic answering service
offered by your phone service provider. After you
subscribe to this service, your phone service
provider’s voicemail system answers calls for you
when you are unavailable to answer the phone or
when your line is busy. Messages are recorded by
your phone service provider, not your telephone.
Please contact your phone service provider for
details of this service.
Important:
R To use the voicemail service provided by your
phone service provider rather than the unit’s
answering system, turn off the answering
system (page 57). For details, see page 63.
Storing the voicemail (VM) access
number
In order to listen to your voicemail messages, you
must dial your phone service provider’s voicemail
access number. Once you have stored your

Voicemail (VM) tone detection
Handset / Base unit
Your phone service provider sends special signals
(sometimes called “voicemail tones” or “stutter
tones”) to the unit to let you know you have new
voicemail messages. If you hear a series of dial
tones followed by a continuous dial tone after you
press M N on the handset or lift the corded
handset, you have new voicemail messages. Soon
after you hang up a call or after the phone stops
ringing, your unit checks the phone line to see if
new voicemail messages have been recorded.
Turn this feature off when:
– You do not subscribe to voicemail service.
– Your phone service provider does not send
voicemail tones.
– Your phone is connected to a PBX.
If you are not sure which setting is required,
contact your phone service provider.

Privacy of communications may not be ensured when
using this telephone.
Some cordless telephones operate at frequencies that
may cause interference to nearby TVs and VCRs.
To minimize or prevent such interference, the base of
