About Caller Identification
Telephone operating range
Caller ID with Call Waiting features in
this telephone let you see who’s calling
before you answer the phone, even
when you’re on another call. These
features require services provided by
your local telephone company.
This cordless telephone operates with
the maximum power allowed by the
Federal Communications Commission
(FCC). Even so, this handset and base
can communicate over only a certain
distance — which can vary with the
locations of the base and handset, the
weather, and the construction of your
home or office. For best performance,
keep the base antenna fully upright.
Contact your telephone service
provider if:
• You have both Caller ID and Call
Waiting, but as separate services
(you may need combined service)
If you receive a call while you are
out of range, the handset might not
ring — or if it does ring, the call might
not connect when you press PHONE.
Move closer to the base, then press
PHONE to answer the call.
• You have only Caller ID service, or
only Call Waiting service
• You don’t subscribe to any Caller
ID or Call Waiting services.
If you move out of range during a
phone conversation, you might hear
noise or interference. To improve
reception, move closer to the base.
You can use this phone with regular
Caller ID service, and you can use its
other features without subscribing to
either Caller ID or combined Caller ID
with Call Waiting service. There may
be fees for these services, and they
may not be available in all areas.
If you move out of range without
pressing OFF, your phone will be left
“off the hook.” To hang up properly,
walk back toward the telephone base,
periodically pressing OFF until the call
is disconnected.
Caller ID features will work only if
both you and the caller are in areas
offering Caller ID service, and if both
telephone companies use compatible
equipment.
See Caller ID Operation, beginning on
page 28, for more details about how
these features work.

Memory capacity
There are separate phonebook directories in the handset and the base. Each phonebook can store up to 50
entries. Each entry can contain a number up to 32 digits,
and a name up to 16 letters long.
If you subscribe to Caller ID service from your local
telephone company, you can select a picture to be displayed with each phonebook entry. You can also select
a distinctive ringing type for each entry, so you know
who is calling. A convenient search feature can help you
find and dial numbers quickly (see page 20).
Timeouts and error tones
If you pause for too long while making an entry the
Phonebook will time out and you will have to begin
again.
If all memory locations are in use, an error tone will
sound when you attempt to enter a new number. This
means the memory is full, and you will not be able to
store a new number until you delete an existing one.

In case of difficulty
If you have difficulty with your phone, please try the suggestions below. For Customer
Service, visit our web site at www.telephones.att.com, or call 1 800 222–3111.
"Check battery"
or "Warning!
Use
Rechargeable
Batteries Only"
is displayed on
screen
Telephone does
not work at all
Phone does not
ring
If you hear
noise or
interference
during a call
•
Non-rechargeable batteries have been installed. They must be
removed immediately and replaced with rechargeable NiMH batteries
(see page 7).
•
Rechargeable batteries have been installed but may be old or need to
be replaced. Remove and re-install the batteries and use normally
until fully discharged then let them fully recharge in the handset or
base.
•
If the above measures do not correct the problem, your batteries
should be replaced (see page 7).
•
Make sure batteries are installed and charged correctly (see page 7).
•
Make sure the AC adapter is plugged into an outlet not controlled by
a wall switch.
•
Make sure the telephone line cord is plugged firmly into the base unit
and the modular jack.
•
Make sure the base antenna is fully upright.
•
If you have dial pulse telephone service, make sure the dial mode is
set to dial pulse (see page 17).
•
If these suggestions do not work, unplug the base, remove and reinsert the batteries, then place the handset in the base to re-initialize.
•
Make sure the ringer is on (see page 15).
•
Make sure the telephone line cord and AC adapter are plugged in
properly (see page 6).
•
Make sure the base antenna is fully upright.
•
Move the handset closer to the base.
•
You might have too many extension phones on your telephone line to
allow all of them to ring. Try unplugging some of them.
•
Make sure the base antenna is fully upright.
•
You may be out of range. Move closer to the base.
•
Appliances plugged into the same circuit as the base can cause
interference. Try moving the appliance or base to another outlet.
•
The layout of your home or office might be limiting the operating
range. Try moving the base to another location, preferably on an
upper floor.
•
If the buttons don’t work, try placing the handset in the base for at
least 15 seconds.
•
Disconnect the base from the modular jack and plug in a corded telephone. If calls are still not clear, the problem is probably in your
wiring or local service. Call your local telephone service company.

You need to reset the answering system clock (see page 36).
System does
not respond
to remote
commands
•
Make sure to enter your Remote Access Code correctly (see page 43).
•
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.

while your announcement is playing. Try waiting until the announcement is over before entering the code.
•
There may be noise or interference on the phone line you are using.
Press dial-pad buttons firmly.
