About caller ID
This product supports caller ID services provided by most telephone
service providers. Caller ID allows you to see the name, number, date and
time of calls. Some names and numbers may not show because they are
not available or blocked by the caller. The caller ID information shows 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 telephone, 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 do not 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 are sent by your telephone
service provider along with the call information.
You can use this product with regular caller ID service, or you can use this
product’s other features without subscribing to either caller ID or combined
caller ID with call waiting service.

Call log
If you subscribe to caller ID service, information about each caller
appears after the first or second ring. If you answer a call before the caller
information appears on the screen, it will not be saved in the call log.
• The call log stores up to 30 entries. Each entry has up to 24 digits for the
phone number and 15 characters for the name. If the telephone number
has more that 15 digits, only the last 15 digits appear. If the name has
more than 15 characters, only the first 15 characters are shown and
saved in the call log.
• You can review, redial and copy an entry into the directory.
• Entries appear in reverse chronological order.
• When the call log is full, the oldest entry is deleted to make room for new
incoming call information.
• XX missed calls displays when there are new call log entries that have
not been reviewed.
• Call log empty displays when there are no records in the call log.
• Call log entries are shared by all system handsets (for CS6114-2 only).
Any deletions made on one handset are reflected on the other handset.
• Only one handset can review the call log at a time (for CS6114-2 only). If
a handset tries to enter the call log while another handset is already in it,
Not available displays.
For call log entries with numbers between 16 and 24 digits, in order to view the
entire number, you must save the entry to the directory (see page 21).
Missed call indicator
When there are calls that have not been reviewed in the
call log, the handset displays XX missed calls.
Each time you review a call log entry marked NEW, the
number of missed calls decreases by one.
When you have reviewed all the missed calls, the
missed call indicator no longer displays.
If you do not want to review the missed calls one by
one, press and hold OFF/CANCEL on the idle handset to

Memory match
When the incoming telephone number matches the last seven digits of a
telephone number in your directory, the screen displays the stored name of
the directory entry.
For example, if Linda Jones calls, her name appears as Linda if this is how
you entered it into your directory.
The number shown in the call log is in the format sent by the telephone
service provider. It usually delivers 10-digit telephone numbers (area code
plus phone number). If the last seven digits of the incoming telephone
number does not match a number in your directory, the name appears as it
is delivered by the telephone service provider.

cleaners. Use a damp cloth for cleaning.
4. Do not use this product near water such as near a bath tub, wash bowl, kitchen sink,
laundry tub or swimming pool, or in a wet basement or shower.
5. Do not place this product on an unstable table, shelf, stand or other unstable surfaces.
6. Slots and openings in the back or bottom of the telephone base and handset are provided
for ventilation. To protect them from overheating, these openings must not be blocked by
placing the product on a soft surface such as a bed, sofa or rug. This product should never
be placed near or over a radiator or heat register. This product should not be placed in any
area where proper ventilation is not provided.
7. This product should be operated only from the type of power source indicated on the
marking label. If you are not sure of the type of power supply in your home or office,
consult your dealer or local power company.
8. Do not allow anything to rest on the power cord. Do not install this product where the cord
may be walked on.
9. Never push objects of any kind into this product through the slots in the telephone base or
handset because they may touch dangerous voltage points or create a short circuit. Never
spill liquid of any kind on the product.
10. To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not disassemble this product, but take it to an
authorized service facility. Opening or removing parts of the telephone base or handset
other than specified access doors may expose you to dangerous voltages or other risks.
Incorrect reassembling can cause electric shock when the product is subsequently used.
11. Do not overload wall outlets and extension cords.
12. Unplug this product from the wall outlet and refer servicing to an authorized service facility
under the following conditions:
A. When the power supply cord or plug is damaged or frayed.
B. If liquid has been spilled onto the product.
C. If the product has been exposed to rain or water.
D. If the product does not operate normally by following the operating instructions. Adjust
only those controls that are covered by the operation instructions. Improper adjustment
of other controls may result in damage and often requires extensive work by an

closing of any electrical circuit. The user should not plug the phone into a power outlet, and
should not put a charged handset into the cradle, if the phone is located in an environment
containing concentrations of flammable or flame-supporting gases, unless there is
adequate ventilation. A spark in such an environment could create a fire or explosion. Such
environments might include: medical use of oxygen without adequate ventilation; industrial
gases (cleaning solvents; gasoline vapors; etc.); a leak of natural gas; etc.
15. Only put the handset of your telephone next to your ear when it is in normal talk mode.
16. The power adapters are intended to be correctly oriented in a vertical or floor mount
position. The prongs are not designed to hold the plug in place if it is plugged into a ceiling,
under-the-table or cabinet outlet.

pocket, when it is turned ON.
• Should use the wireless telephone at the ear opposite the pacemaker.
WTR’s evaluation did not identify any risk to bystanders with pacemakers from other persons
using wireless telephones.
Operating range
This cordless telephone operates with the maximum power allowed by the Federal
Communications Commission (FCC). Even so, this handset and telephone base can
communicate over only a certain distance - which can vary with the locations of the telephone
base and handset, the weather, and the layout of your home or office.
When the handset is out of range, the handset displays Out of range or no pwr at base.
If there is a call while the handset is out of range, it may not ring, or if it does ring, the call may not
connect well when you press
/FLASH. Move closer to the telephone base, then press
/FLASH
to answer the call.
If the handset moves out of range during a telephone conversation, there may be interference. To
improve reception, move closer to the telephone base.
Maintenance
Taking care of your telephone
Your cordless telephone contains sophisticated electronic parts, so it must be treated 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
Your telephone can be damaged if it gets wet. Do not use the handset outdoors 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 equipment. For your
own safety, take caution when using electrical 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 the water. If the telephone base should fall into the water, DO NOT RETRIEVE
IT UNTIL YOU UNPLUG THE POWER CORD AND TELEPHONE LINE CORD FROM THE
WALL. Then remove the telephone by the unplugged cords.

Appendix
About cordless telephones
• Privacy: The same features that make a cordless telephone convenient create some
limitations. Telephone calls are transmitted between the telephone base and the cordless
handset by radio waves, so there is a possibility that the cordless telephone conversations
could be intercepted by radio receiving equipment within range of the cordless handset. For
this reason, you should not think of cordless telephone conversations as being as private as
those on corded telephones.
• Electrical power: The telephone base of this cordless telephone must be connected to a
working electrical outlet. The electrical outlet should not be controlled by a wall switch. Calls
cannot be made from the cordless handset if the telephone base is unplugged, switched off
or if the electrical power is interrupted.
• Potential TV interference: Some cordless telephones operate at frequencies that may
cause interference to televisions and VCRs. To minimize or prevent such interference, do
not place the telephone base of the cordless telephone near or on top of a TV or VCR. If
interference is experienced, moving the cordless telephone farther away from the TV or
VCR often reduces or eliminates the interference.
• Rechargeable batteries: Exercise care in handling batteries in order not to create a
short circuit with conducting material such as rings, bracelets, and keys. The battery or
conductor may overheat and cause harm. Observe proper polarity between the battery and
the battery charger.
• Nickel-metal hydride rechargeable batteries: Dispose of these batteries in a safe
manner. Do not burn or puncture the battery. Like other batteries of this type, if burned or
punctured, they could release caustic material which could cause injury.
The RBRC ® seal
The RBRC ® seal on the nickel-metal hydride battery indicates that VTech Communications,
Inc. is voluntarily participating in an industry program to collect and recycle these batteries at
the end of their useful lives, when taken out of service within the United States and Canada.
The RBRC ® program provides a convenient alternative to placing used nickel-metal hydride
batteries into the trash or municipal waste, which may be illegal in your area.
VTech’s participation in RBRC ® makes it easy for you to drop off the spent battery at local
retailers participating in the RBRC ® program or at authorized VTech product service centers.
Please call 1 (800) 8 BATTERYTM for information on Ni-MH battery recycling and disposal
bans/restrictions in your area. VTech’s involvement in this program is part of its commitment to
protecting our environment and conserving natural resources.
