using the telephone.
STOP!
See pages 4-5 for
easy instructions.
Install the telephone base close to a telephone jack and a power outlet not

or vertically mounted on the wall (see pages 6-9).
If you subscribe to high-speed Internet service (DSL - digital subscriber line) through
your telephone line, you must install a DSL filter between the telephone line cord
and the telephone wall jack (see page 4). 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 telephone
base display, remove it before use.
For customer service or product information, visit our website at
www.telephones.att.com or call 1 (866) 288-4268.
Avoid placing the telephone base too close to:
• Communication devices such as television sets, VCRs, or cordless telephones.
• Excessive heat sources.
• Noise sources such as a window with traffic outside, motors, microwave
ovens, refrigerators, or fluorescent lighting.
• Excessive dust sources such as a workshop or garage.
• Excessive moisture.
• Extremely low temperature.
• Mechanical vibration or shock such as on top of a washing machine or
work bench.

Caller ID
About caller ID
This product supports caller ID services offered by most telephone service
providers. Caller ID allows you to see the name, number, date and time of calls.
The available caller ID information will appear after the first or second ring.
Information about caller ID with call waiting
Caller ID with call waiting lets you see the name and telephone number of
the caller before answering the call, even while on another call.
It may be necessary to change your telephone service to use this feature.
Contact your telephone 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 caller ID or call waiting services.
There are fees for caller ID services. In addition, services may not be available
in all areas.
This product can provide information only if both you and the caller are in
areas offering caller ID service and if both telephone service providers use
compatible equipment. The time and date, along with the call information, are
from the telephone service provider.
Caller ID information may not be available for every incoming call. Callers may
intentionally block their names and/or telephone numbers. You can only view
and store a maximum of 15 digits or characters of every caller ID log entry.
NOTE: You can use this product with regular caller ID service, or you can use this product’s
other features without subscribing to caller ID or combined caller ID with call waiting service.

Caller ID
Caller ID history
How the caller ID history (caller ID log) works
The telephone stores caller ID information about the last 50 incoming calls.
Entries are stored in reverse chronological order. The phone deletes the
oldest entry when the log is full to make room for new calls. If you answer
a call before the information appears on the screen, it does not show in the
caller ID history.
Missed (new) call indicator
When the telephone is in idle mode and has new or missed calls, its screen
shows XX Missed calls.
All new and missed entries are counted as missed calls.
Each time you review a new caller ID log entry
(indicated by the NEW icon on the screen), the number
of missed calls decreases by one.

Caller ID operation
Memory match
If the incoming telephone number matches the last seven digits of a telephone
number in your directory, the name that appears on the screen matches the
corresponding name in your directory.
For example, if Christine Smith calls, her name appears as CHRIS if this is how
you entered it into your directory.
NOTE: The number shown in the caller ID log will be in the format sent by the telephone
service provider. The telephone service provider usually delivers 10-digit phone numbers
(area code plus telephone number). If the telephone number of the caller does not match a
number in your directory, the name will appear as it is delivered by the telephone
service provider.

Troubleshooting
If you have difficulty with your telephone, please try the following suggestions.
For Customer Service, visit our website at www.telephones.att.com or
call 1 (866) 288-4268.
My telephone doesn’t work at all.
• Make sure the power cord is securely plugged in.
• Make sure you plug the telephone line cord securely and firmly into the
telephone and the telephone wall jack.
• Reset the telephone. Unplug the electrical power. Wait for approximately
15 seconds, then plug it back in. Allow up to one minute for the telephone
to reset.
The display shows No line. I cannot get a dial tone.
• Try all the suggestions, as mentioned above.
• If the previous suggestions do not work, disconnect the telephone line
cord from your telephone and connect the telephone line cord to
another telephone.
• If there is no dial tone on that other telephone either, your telephone
line cord may be defective. Install a new telephone line cord.
• If changing the telephone line cord does not help, the wall jack (or
the wiring to this wall jack) may be defective. Try using a different wall
jack in your home to connect your CL4940 telephone, or contact your
telephone service provider (charges may apply).
I cannot dial out.
• Try all the suggestions, as mentioned above.
• Make sure you have a dial tone before dialing.
• Eliminate any background noise. Noise from a television, radio or other
appliance may cause the phone to not dial out properly. If you cannot
eliminate the background noise, first try muting the telephone before
dialing, or dialing from another room with less background noise.
• If other phones in your home are having the same problem, contact your
telephone service provider (charges may apply).
I hear other calls while using my phone.
• Disconnect the telephone from the telephone jack, and plug in a different
telephone. If you still hear other calls, call your telephone service provider.
System announces, “Time and day not set.”
• You need to set the system clock (page 10).
47
Appendix
Troubleshooting
I get noise or static when I use the telephone base.
• If you subscribe to high-speed Internet service (DSL - digital subscriber
line) through your telephone line, you must install a DSL filter between
the telephone line cord and the telephone wall jack (page 4). The filter
prevents noise and caller ID problems as a result of DSL interference.
Please contact your DSL service provider for more information about
DSL filters.
• Do not install this phone near a microwave oven or on the same electrical
outlet. You may experience decreased performance while the microwave
oven is operating.
• If you plug your phone in with a modem or a surge protector, plug the
phone (or modem/surge protector) into a different location. If this does not
solve the problem, relocate your phone or modem farther apart from one
another, or use a different surge protector.
• If other phones in your home are having the same problem, contact your
telephone service provider (charges may apply).
My caller ID isn’t working.
• Caller ID is a subscription service. You must subscribe to this service from
your telephone service provider for this feature to work on your phone.
• The call may not be calling from an area that supports caller ID.
• Both your and your caller’s telephone service providers must use caller ID
compatible equipment.
• If you subscribe to high-speed Internet service (DSL - digital subscriber
line) through your telephone line, you must install a DSL filter between
the telephone line cord and the telephone wall jack (page 4). The filter
prevents noise and caller ID problems resulting from DSL interference.
Please contact your DSL service provider for more information about
DSL filters.
System does not receive caller ID when on a call.
• Make sure you subscribe to caller ID with call waiting features from your
telephone service provider. Caller ID features works only if both you and
the caller are in areas offering caller ID service, and if both telephone
service providers use compatible equipment.
Incomplete messages.
• If a caller leaves a very long message, part of it may be lost when the system
disconnects the call after the recordings exceed the maximum recording time
(page 39).
• If the caller pauses for longer than three seconds, the system stops
recording and disconnects the call.
48
Appendix
Troubleshooting
• If the system’s memory becomes full during a message, the system stops
recording and disconnects the call.
• If the caller’s voice is very soft, the system may stop recording and
disconnect the call.
Difficulty hearing messages.
• Press pVOLUME or /EQUALIZER to increase the telephone speaker volume.
System does not answer after the correct number of rings.
• Make sure that the answering system is on. ANS ON light on the
telephone should be on.
• If toll saver is activated, the number of rings changes to two or four when
you have new messages stored (page 36).
• If the memory is full or the system is off, the system will answer after
10 rings.
• In some cases, the answering system is affected by the ringing system used
by your telephone service provider.
• If there is a fax machine connected to the same telephone line, try
disconnecting the fax machine. If that solves the problem, consult your
fax machine documentation for information on compatibility with
answering systems.
System does not respond to remote commands.
• Make sure to enter your remote access code correctly (page 37).
• Make sure you are calling from a touch-tone phone. When you dial a
number, you should hear tones. If you hear clicks, the phone is not a
touch-tone telephone and cannot activate the answering system.
• The answering system may not detect the remote access code while your
announcement is playing. Try waiting until the announcement is over before
entering the code.
• There may be interference on the phone line you are using. Press dialing
keys firmly.
System does not record messages.
• Make sure the answering system is on. ANS ON light on the telephone
should be on.
• Make sure the memory of the answering system is not full.
• If there is a fax machine connected to the same telephone line, try
disconnecting the fax machine. If that solves the problem, consult your
fax machine documentation for information on compatibility with
answering systems.

Outgoing announcement is not clear.
• When you record your announcement, make sure you speak in a normal
tone of voice, about nine inches from the telephone.
• Make sure there is no background noise (TV, music, etc.) while recording.
I subscribe to a nontraditional telephone service that uses my computer to
establish connections, and my telephone doesn’t work.

Maintenance
Taking care of your telephone
• Your corded telephone contains sophisticated electronic parts, so you must
treat it with care.
• Avoid rough treatment.
• Place the handset down gently.
• Save the original packing materials to protect your telephone if you ever
need to ship it.
Avoid water
• The telephone can be damaged if it gets wet. Do not use the handset in
the rain, or handle it with wet hands. Do not install the telephone base
near a sink, bathtub or shower.
Electrical storms
• Electrical storms can sometimes cause power surges harmful to electronic

appliances during storms.
Cleaning your telephone
• Your telephone has a durable plastic casing that should retain its luster for
many years. Clean it only with a soft cloth slightly dampened with water or
mild soap.
• Do not use excess water or cleaning solvents of any kind.
Remember that electrical appliances can cause serious injury if used when you are wet or
standing in water. If the telephone base should fall into water, DO NOT RETRIEVE IT UNTIL
YOU UNPLUG THE POWER CORD AND TELEPHONE LINE CORDS FROM THE WALL. Pull the
unit out by the unplugged cords.

FCC and ACTA information
If this equipment was approved for connection to the telephone network prior to July 23,
2001, it complies with Part 68 of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) rules. If
the equipment was approved after that date, it complies with the Part 68 rules and with the
Technical Requirements for Connection of Equipment to the Telephone Network adopted by the
Administrative Council for Terminal Attachments (ACTA). We are required to provide you with the
following information.
1. Product identifier and REN information
The label on the back or bottom of this equipment contains, among other things, an identifier
indicating product approval and the Ringer Equivalence Number (REN). This information must
be provided to your telephone service provider upon request. For equipment approved prior to

listed separately. For equipment approved after that date, the product identifier is preceded by
“US” and a colon (:), and the REN is encoded in the product identifier without a decimal point
as the sixth and seventh characters following the colon. For example, the product identifier US:
AAAEQ03T123XYZ indicates the REN would be 0.3.
The REN is used to determine how many devices you can connect to your telephone line and
still have them ring when you are called. In most, but not all areas, the sum of all RENS should
be five (5.0) or less. You might want to contact your telephone service provider for more
information.
2. Connection and use with the nationwide telephone network
The plug and jack used to connect this equipment to the premises wiring and the telephone
network must comply with the applicable Part 68 rules and technical requirements adopted
by ACTA. A compliant telephone cord and modular plug is provided with this product. It is
designed to be connected to a compatible modular wall jack that is also compliant. An RJ11
jack should normally be used for connecting to a single line and an RJ14 jack for two lines,
see installation instructions in the user’s manual. This equipment may not be used with
coin telephone lines or with party lines. If you have specially wired alarm dialing equipment
connected to your telephone line, ensure the connection of this equipment does not disable
your alarm equipment. If you have questions about what will disable the alarm equipment,
consult your telephone service provider or qualified installer.
3. Repair instructions
If this equipment is malfunctioning, it must be unplugged from the modular wall jack until the
problem has been corrected. Repairs to this telephone equipment can only be made by the

may temporarily discontinue your telephone service. The telephone service provider is
required to notify you before interrupting service. If advance notice is not practical, you will be
notified as soon as possible. You will be given the opportunity to correct the problem and the
telephone service provider is required to inform you of your right to file a complaint with the
FCC. Your telephone service provider may make changes in its facilities, equipment, operation,
or procedures that could affect the proper functioning of this product. The telephone service
provider is required to notify you if such changes are planned.
5. Hearing aid compatibility
If this product is equipped with a corded or cordless handset, it is hearing aid compatible.

FCC and ACTA information
6. Programming/testing of emergency numbers
If this product has memory dialing locations, you may choose to store police, fire department
and emergency medical service telephone numbers in these locations. If you do, please keep
three things in mind:
a. We recommend that you also write the telephone number on the directory card (if
applicable), so that you can still dial the emergency number manually if the memory dialing
feature doesn’t work.
b. This feature is provided only as a convenience, and the manufacturer assumes no
responsibility for customer reliance upon the memory feature.
c. Testing the emergency telephone numbers you have stored is not recommended. However,
if you do make a call to an emergency number:
• You must remain on the line and briefly explain the reason for the call before hanging up.
• Programming/testing of emergency numbers should be performed during off-peak
hours, such as in the early morning or late evening, when the emergency services tend
to be less busy.
