About caller ID
This product supports caller ID services provided by most telephone service
providers. Depending on your service subscription, you may see the caller’s
number, or the caller’s name and number that are sent by your telephone
service provider after the first or second ring. Caller ID allows you to see the
name, number, date and time of calls.
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 will appear
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 50 entries. Each entry has up to 24 digits for the
phone number and 15 characters for the name. If the phone number has
more than 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

• Call log empty shows when there are no records in the
Call log empty
call log.
• Only one handset can review the call log at a time. If a
handset tries to enter the call log while another handset
is already in it, Not available at this time appears.
• The caller ID information may not be available for every incoming call. The callers
may intentionally block their names and/or telephone numbers.
• 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 41).
• If the phone number has more than 24 digits, it will not be saved or shown in
the call log.
Memory match
If the last seven digits of the incoming telephone number is an exact match
with a telephone number in your directory, the name that appears on the
screen matches the corresponding name in your directory.
For example, if Elizabeth Jones calls, her name appears as Liz if this is how
you entered it into your directory.
The number you see on your caller ID is in the format sent by the telephone
service provider. It usually delivers 10-digit telephone numbers (area code plus
telephone 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.

Answering system operation
Answering system and voicemail
Your telephone has separate indicators for two different types of voice
messages: those left on its built-in answering system and those left at your
service provider’s voicemail. Your telephone’s built-in answering system
messages and voicemail messages are separate. Each alerts you to new
messages differently.
• If
and New voicemail display on the handset, your telephone service
provider is indicating that it has new voicemail for you. To listen to your
voicemail, you typically dial an access number provided by your telephone
service provider, followed by a security code or PIN.
• To listen to messages recorded on your digital answering system, press
MENU/SELECT twice on the handset (page 45) or /PLAY/STOP on the
telephone base (page 44).
Some service providers bundle or combine multiple services like voicemail
and call waiting, so you may not be aware that you have voicemail. To check
what services you have and how to access them, contact your telephone
service provider.
To use your voicemail service rather than your answering system, turn off
your answering system. To use your answering system rather than your
voicemail service, contact your telephone service provider to deactivate
your voicemail service. You can also use your telephone answering system
and voicemail together by setting your built-in answering system to answer
before voicemail answers as described below. To learn how to program your
voicemail settings, contact your telephone service provider. Then, if you are
on a call, or if the answering system is busy recording a message and you
receive another call, the second caller can leave a voicemail message.
Set your answering system to answer calls at least two rings earlier than your
voicemail is set to answer. For example, if your voicemail answers after six
rings, set your answering system to answer after four rings. Some voicemail
providers may program the delay before answering calls in seconds instead
of rings. In this case, allow six seconds per ring when determining the
appropriate setting.
Message capacity
The answering system can record and store up to 99 messages. Each
message can be up to four minutes in length. The total storage capacity for
the announcement, messages and memos is approximately 14 minutes.
The actual recording time depends on individual message characteristics.
Messages remain available for replay until you delete them.
43

Caller ID entries do not match the numbers I need to dial.
• Caller ID service delivers 10 digits (the area code plus the seven-digit number). If
you need to dial something other 10 digits, see page 40 for instructions on changing
the number.
• If you dial seven digits for local calls, you may want to use the home area code
feature (page 14).
Out of range OR No pwr at base shows in the handset screen.
• The handset may be out of range. Move it closer to the telephone base.
• Make sure the power cord is securely plugged into the telephone base. Use a
working electrical outlet not controlled by a wall switch.
• Reset your telephone by unplugging the power adapter from the telephone base.
Disconnect the battery from the cordless handset. Wait for 15 seconds, then plug in
the power adapter and install the battery again. Place the handset in the telephone
base and allow up to one minute for the handset and telephone base to synchronize.
• Other electronic products such as HAM Radios and other DECT Phones can cause
interference with your cordless phone. Try installing your phone as far away as
possible from these types of electronic devices.
New voicemail and
show on the display and I don’t know why.
• Your telephone has voicemail indication that is separate from the built-in answering system. If New voicemail and
appear on the display, then your
telephone has received a signal from your telephone service provider that you
have a voicemail message waiting for you to retrieve from your telephone service
provider. Contact your telephone service provider for more information on how to
access your voicemail.
I cannot retrieve voicemail messages.
• Your telephone has both a built-in answering system and voicemail indication. They
are independent features and each alerts you to new messages differently (page 43).
If you subscribe to voicemail service from your telephone service provider (charges
may apply), contact your telephone service provider for more information on how to
access your voicemail.
The answering system does not answer after the correct number of rings.
• Make sure the answering system is on. When the answering system is on, the
/ANS ON/OFF light on the telephone base should be lit and ANS ON should show
on the handset.
• If toll saver is selected, the number of rings changes to two when there are new
messages waiting (page 17).
• If the memory is full or if the answering system is off, the answering system answers
after 10 rings.
59
Appendix
Troubleshooting
• In some cases, the answering system is affected by the ringing system used by your
telephone service provider.
• If you subscribe to voicemail service, change the number of rings so that your
answering system answers before your voicemail answers (page 43). To determine how many rings activate your voicemail, please contact your telephone
service provider.
• If there is a fax machine connected to the same telephone line, try disconnecting the
fax machine. If that solves the problem, consult your fax machine documentation for
information on compatibility with answering systems.

Precautions for users of implanted cardiac pacemakers
Cardiac pacemakers (applies only to digital cordless telephones):
Wireless Technology Research, LLC (WTR), an independent research entity, led a
multidisciplinary evaluation of the interference between portable wireless telephones and
implanted cardiac pacemakers. Supported by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, WTR
recommends to physicians that:
Pacemaker patients
•
Should keep wireless telephones at least six inches from the pacemaker.
•
Should NOT place wireless telephones directly over the pacemaker, such as in a breast
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 might not ring, or if it does ring, the call might 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 might be interference.
To improve reception, move closer to the telephone base.
63
Appendix
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 a 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.
64
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.
