Setting up the base phone
Do the following steps:
• Choose the best location
• Connect the base phone
• Choose the dialing mode
Choose the best location
Where you place the base phone affects the reception quality of the
handset.
Away from noise sources such as a window
by a street with heavy traffic
Away from television
sets and other
electronic equipment
Away from heat sources, such as radiators,
airducts, and sunlight
Away from a microwave
oven
Away from excessive
moisture, extremely low
temperatures, dust,
mechanical vibration, or
shock
Away from a personal
computer
Near a central location
and on a level surface
Away from another
cordless telephone
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.

Step 3: Preparing the battery pack (continued)
Battery duration
A fully charged battery pack lasts for about:
• Approx. 7 hours when you use the handset continuously
• Approx. 7 days when the 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 handset without charging it, the battery
pack will be completely discharged.
It may require several times of charging to recover to its full capacity.
To obtain the best performance from the battery
Do not place the handset on the base phone after each call. The battery
works best if the handset is returned to the base phone after two or
three calls. However, do not leave the handset off the base phone 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-T23 rechargeable battery pack.
Note
Battery life may vary depending on usage condition and ambient temperature.

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 your home area code. Otherwise, you
cannot use some functions of this phone and the Caller ID functions.
This is also necessary because the phone must be able to select an area code to
properly dial call from the Caller ID list.
Depending on your region, enter 3-digit area code as follows:
Case 1.
If 7-digit dialing (no area code) is accepted for local calls in your area, see “To enter
your home area code” below.
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 18.
Case 2.
If 10-digit dialing (area code + number) is required for all local calls in your area, at

Caller ID Features
Understanding the Caller ID service
Caller ID allows the caller’s phone number to be shown on the display
before the call is answered. In order to use this feature, you must first
subscribe to the Caller ID service. The name of this service may vary
depending on your telephone company.
To use this feature, be sure to enter your home area code (see page 16).
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, the caller’s
name also appears on the display (up to 15 letters).
Handset
SMITH JOHN

Caller’s name
Caller’s phone number
The date and time received
* The display on the base phone
does not show the date and time.
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.
Tip
Even if the ringer of the handset is set to “RINGER OFF”, you can receive
Caller ID data.
About the memory match function
If you receive a call from a phone number which is stored on speed dialing
keys (see page 32) or in the Phone Directory (see page 35), the ringer sound
will change to a higher tone from the second ring.
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.
60US
Caller ID Features
Looking at the Caller ID list
The phone stores the data of the last 20 calls received including “OUT

even if they were not answered.
Viewing the Caller ID list
You can look through the Caller ID list to check the phone number
and/or name of the calls received on the handset’s display. Note that
the display on the base phone shows the current caller’s phone number
and/or name only, and you cannot view the caller ID list on the base

Like the basic Caller ID service, you need to subscribe to “Caller ID
