Getting Started
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.
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.

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

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.

Notes
• 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
(including international calls).
—“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.
• 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 Phone Directory will appear on the display and
the ringer sound will change to a higher tone from the second ring if
you receive a call from a phone number which is stored in the Phone
Directory on the base phone or the cordless handset (see page 43).
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.

Using “Caller ID with call waiting”
service
This telephone is compatible with the “Caller ID with call waiting”
service. Make sure that your telephone company offers this service.
Like the basic Caller ID service, you need to subscribe to “Caller ID
with call waiting” in order to use this service.
Even though you may have already subscribed to “Caller ID” and
“call waiting” as two separate services, you need to request a
subscription to “Caller ID with call waiting” as a single service.
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
20 seconds.
To switch to another caller
1 To switch to the new caller,
press (CALL WAITING/FLASH).
2 To switch back to the first caller,
press (CALL WAITING/FLASH)
again.
