Caller Specific Outgoing Announcements
You can record up to three Caller Specific Outgoing Announcements that
you can match to:
• specific incoming caller numbers, or
• callers who choose to block their name and number when
calling, or
• callers from areas in which Caller ID information is not transmitted.
Callers from the number(s) you designate will hear your selected
announcement, not the “regular” announcement that other callers hear.
For example, you could record the following announcement to be played
when you receive a call from your friend’s telephone number:
“Hi, I went to play tennis. I’ll be back around eight o’clock.”
Or, you could record the following announcement to be played to callers
who choose to block their Caller ID information (private calls):
“Hello. You have chosen to block your name and number. Blocked
calls will not be accepted at this number.”

About Caller Identification
This telephone has a Caller ID feature that works with Caller Identification
service provided by your local telephone company. There is a fee for this
service, and it may not be available in all areas. This phone can provide
information only if both you and the caller are in areas offering Caller
Identification service, and if both telephone companies use compatible
equipment. Depending on your service, you will be able to see the
number, or the name and number, of your caller. Additionally, Caller ID
with Call Waiting allows you to see who’s calling even while you’re on
another call.This feature requires Caller ID with Visual Call Waiting
combined service available through your local telephone company. If you
are already subscribing to Caller ID and Call Waiting as separate services,
you need to request a subscription to Caller ID with Visual Call Waiting as a
single, combined service. If you choose not to use the Call Waiting feature,
this unit will also work with regular Caller ID service. Such services are
not available in all areas. To turn off Caller ID with Call Waiting, see the
FEATURE SETUP section of this manual. The time and date are sent by the
provider, along with the call information.
Call Waiting
If you have Call Waiting with Caller ID service, the screen will display
information about your Call Waiting call when you hear the call signal.
Press
to access the call. Press
again to return to the
original call.
NOTE: If you are using an extension phone when you receive a
Call Waiting signal, the screen displays MULTIPLE PHONES IN USE:
NO DATA.

CALLER ID OPERATION
Incoming Call History
This telephone assigns each incoming call a number from 1 to 99. The
most recent call will have the highest number (for example, if 10 calls have
been received, call number 10 is the most recent, and call number 1 is the
oldest). When the call history is full, the oldest call information is deleted
to make room for new incoming call information. The screen displays
if the caller left a message.
Memory Match
Names stored in memory will appear in your incoming Caller ID as stored
in your memory. For example, if you store your parents’ telephone number
with their name (“Mom and Dad”) in memory, the Caller ID display will
show MOM AND DAD whenever you receive an incoming call from their
stored phone number.
Reviewing Call History
You can review information in the call history at any time by pressing
either < or >, or by pressing U, then selecting CALL ID. The screen
displays the number of calls in the call history and how many, if any, are
new. You can continue to use < or > to scroll through the call history.
The screen displays the name (if your service provides this), number, date,
and time of the call simultaneously, beginning with the most recent call.
When you reach the end of the call history, the screen displays END OF
LIST. Press < or > to continue reviewing the call history.
To exit the review, you can press either softkey or wait 30 seconds.
Display Dial
NOTE: To use the Display Dial feature, you must follow the directions
for “Programming Home and Local Area Codes” in “Caller ID Feature
Setup” on page 8.
As you review calls in call history, you can dial a displayed phone number
by pressing
on the handset. The screen displays the number
being called. If the screen displays an error indicator (for example Er), you
cannot dial any displayed digits.
If the call came from your home area code, then the screen displays only
the seven digits of the number you’re calling (without an area code). When
you press
, the phone dials the seven displayed digits. You must
program your home area code for this to work.

CALLER ID OPERATION
You can also program up to four other local area codes. These are area
codes that do not require dialing a “1” before them. After storing these area
codes, if you receive a call from one of these area codes, the screen
displays the ten digits (three digits of area code plus seven digits of phone
number). When you press
, the phone dials ten digits, without
inserting a “1” before the area code. If you receive a call from an area code
not programmed in the phone, you will see 10 digits on the screen (the
area code and the phone number). The phone will automatically dial “1”
before the number when you press
.
If you try to use the Display Dial feature, but your call cannot be completed
unless you dial “1” before the number, follow the steps below:
1 Press < or > to locate the number you want to call.
2 Press U.
3 Press > until the screen displays DIAL 1+.
4 Select DIAL 1+ to dial the number.

OPERATING RANGE
This cordless telephone operates within 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.
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 P.
Move closer to the base, then press P to answer the call.
If you move out of range during a phone conversation, you might
hear noise or interference. To improve reception, move closer to the base.
If you move out of range without pressing P, your phone will be
left “off the hook.” To hang up properly, walk back into range, periodically
pressing P.

BATTERIES
Charging the Handset Battery Pack
This battery should remain charged up to 15 days with the Ringer turned
on and up to 30 days with the Ringer off. A fully charged battery provides
an average talk time of about 10 hours.
The battery pack needs charging when:
• A new battery is installed in the handset.
• The phone beeps four times when you press P.
• The battery status symbol on the screen is only partly displayed.
• The phone does not respond when you press P.
Place the handset in the base either in the face-down or face-up position so
the CHARGING light turns on. The battery pack is typically fully charged in
six hours.
You can keep the battery fully charged by returning the handset to the
base after each use.
If you repeatedly get a low battery indicator, even after six hours of
charging, the battery should be replaced.
CAUTION: To reduce the risk of fire or injury to persons or
damage to the telephone, read and follow these instructions
carefully:
•
•
•
•
•
•
42
Use only Replacement Battery 3300 (SKU# 90556).
Do not dispose of the battery in a fire. The cell might explode.
Check with local codes for special disposal instructions.
Do not open or mutilate the battery. Released electrolyte is
corrosive and may cause damage to the eyes or skin. It may be
toxic if swallowed.
Exercise care in handling batteries in order not to short the battery
with conducting materials such as rings, bracelets, and keys. The
battery or conductor may overheat and cause harm.
Charge the battery provided with or identified for use with this
product only in accordance with the instructions and limitations
specified in this manual.
Observe proper polarity orientation between the battery and
battery charger.

Remove the battery compartment cover on the handset by
pressing on the indentation and sliding the cover downward.
Lift out the old battery pack.
Hold the new battery pack and plug the connector into the
handset. Place the battery pack into the case.
Replace the cover by sliding it on its track up over the battery
case until it snaps firmly into place.
The new battery pack must be charged before using the
phone. Place the handset face up or face down in the base and
allow it to charge for at least 12 hours the first time. After the first
charge, the battery will quick charge in only six hours. The
telephone might operate before that, but for best performance, let
the battery pack charge fully.
NOTE: The handset may not charge in the face-up position if the belt
clip is attached.
