When the call is terminated due to a low battery, the call will be
placed on hold and can be retrieved from any of the other handsets.
Cleaning the battery charging contacts
To maintain a good charge, it is important to
clean the battery contacts on the handset and
base unit with a dry cloth or a pencil eraser
about once a month.

D. Choose the dialing mode
Most phone systems use tone dialing which sends DTMF tones through the
phone lines. However some phone systems still use pulse dialing. Pulse
dialing is often found in rural areas. The default setting is tone dialing.
Depending on your dialing system, set the mode as follows:
Make sure your battery
pack is fully charged
before choosing the
dialing mode.
1) Press menu/enter.
2) Press ▲ or ▼ and select “ Tone/Pulse”.
3) Press menu/enter, and the display will show the
current setting. (The initial setting is Tone.)
4) Press ▲ or ▼ to change the selection.
5) Press menu/enter to confirm your selection.
6) The display will automatically change to the
Menu Screen after 3 to 5 seconds.
• If you are not sure of your dialing system, set the unit to tone dialing.
Make a trial call. If the call connects, leave the setting as is, otherwise
set the unit to pulse dialing.
• If your phone system requires pulse dialing and you need to send the
DTMF tones for certain situations during a call, you may “switch-over” to
tone dialing. (Refer to “Tone Dialing Switch-over” on page 21.)

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS!
Important Electrical Considerations
Unplug all electrical appliances when you know an electrical storm
is approaching. Lightning can pass through your household wiring
and damage any device connected to it. This phone is no exception.
Warning!
Please do not attempt to unplug any appliance during an electrical
storm.
The FCC Wants You To Know
Changes or modifications to this product not expressly approved by
Uniden, or operation of this product in any way other than as
detailed by the owner’s manual, could void your authority to operate
this product. The equipment cannot be used on public coin phone
service provided by the telephone company. Connection to party line
service is subject to state tariffs. (Contact the state public utility
commission, public service commission or corporation commission
for information.)
Range
Your new phone is designed to achieve the maximum possible range
by transmitting and receiving according to the highest specifications
set forth by the FCC. We have rated this phone to operate at a
maximum distance with the qualification that the range depends
upon the environment in which the telephone is used. Many factors
limit range, and it would be impossible to include all the variables
in our rating. The Maximum Range rating of this phone is meant to
be used as a means of comparison against other range claims.
Telephone Line Problems
The FCC has granted the telephone company the right to disconnect
service in the event that your phone causes problems on the
telephone line. Also, the telephone company may make changes in
facilities and services which may affect the operation of your unit.
However, your telephone company must give adequate notice in
writing prior to such actions to allow you time for making necessary
arrangements to continue uninterrupted service.
If you are having trouble with your telephone service, you must first
disconnect your phone to determine if it is the cause of your
problem. If you determine that it is the cause, you must leave it
disconnected until the trouble has been corrected.

Radio Interference
Cordless Telephone Privacy
Cordless telephones are radio devices. Communications between the
handset and base of your cordless telephone are accomplished by
means of radio waves which are broadcast over the open airways.
Because of the inherent physical properties of radio waves, your
communications can be received by radio receiving devices other
than your own cordless telephone unit. Consequently, any
communications using your cordless telephone may not be private.
There are two types of phone outlets:
Modular Jack
Most phone equipment available now uses modular jacks. Phone
cords are fitted with a molded plastic connector which plugs into
this type of jack. If you do not have modular phone jacks, contact
your local telephone company for information about their
installation.
Hardwired Jack
Some equipment is wired directly to a phone jack, and these types
of installations require a modular jack converter. This type of
installation is not difficult; however, you should contact your
Uniden telephone dealer or a telephone supply store for advice
about the proper adapter or converter for your particular situation.
Connecting the Telephone Cords
Consider these safety guidelines before connecting the telephone
cords:
Caution!
• Never install telephone wiring during a lightning storm.
• Never touch uninsulated telephone wires or terminals unless the
telephone line has been disconnected.
• Use caution when installing or modifying telephone lines.
Applying Power to the Base
This phone requires an AC outlet, without a switch to interrupt
power, and the included AC adapter. To relieve strain on the DC
plug when the phone is placed on a desk or table, wrap the power
cord around the strain relief notch on the bottom of the base.
NOTE:
Installation Considerations
Selecting a Location
Before choosing a location for your new phone, there are some
important guidelines you should consider:
• The location should be close to both a phone jack and
continuous power outlet. (A continuous power outlet is an AC
outlet which does not have a switch to interrupt its power.)
• Keep the base and handset away from sources of electrical noise
such as motors or fluorescent lighting.
• Be sure there is sufficient space to fully extend the base
antenna.
• The base can be placed on a desk or tabletop or mounted on a
standard telephone wall plate.
• You should charge your new phone for 10-12 hours before
completing the installation or using the handset.
One Year Limited Warranty
Telephone Line Outlets
Place the power cord so that it does not create a trip
hazard, or where it could become chafed and create a
fire or other electrical hazards.
Adapter Safety Features
If the AC adapter furnished with this phone
has a polarized line plug (a plug having one
blade wider than the other), this plug will fit
into the power outlet only one way. If you
are unable to insert the plug fully into the
outlet, try reversing the plug.
Do not alter the shape of the blades of the
polarized plug!
NOTE:
If you cannot plug the AC adapter into the outlet,
contact someone about replacing the outlet.
Plug the AC Adapter into a standard 120 VAC wall outlet.
Do not use an outlet controlled by a wall switch.
Use only the Uniden AC Adapter supplied with this
phone.
Important:Evidence of original purchase is required for warranty
service.

ADDITIONAL
INFORMATION
Radio interference may occasionally cause buzzing and humming in
your cordless handset, or clicking noises in the base. This
interference is caused by external sources such as TV, refrigerator,
vacuum cleaner, fluorescent lighting, or electrical storm. Your unit
is NOT DEFECTIVE. If these noises continue and are too distracting,
please check around your home to see what appliances may be
causing the problem. In addition, we recommend that the base not
be plugged into a circuit that also powers a major appliance
because of the potential for interference. Be certain that the
antenna on the unit is fully extended when needed.
In the unlikely event that you consistently hear other voices or
distracting transmissions on your phone, you may be receiving radio
signals from another cordless telephone or other source of
interference. If you cannot eliminate this type of interference, you
need to change to a different channel.
Finally, it should be noted that some cordless telephones operate at
frequencies that may cause interference to nearby TVs and VCRs. To
minimize or prevent such interference, the base of the cordless
telephone should not be placed near or on top of a TV or VCR. If
interference is experienced, moving the cordless telephone farther
away from the TV or VCR will often reduce or eliminate the
interference.
