Getting started
Installation
Install the telephone base close to a telephone jack and a power outlet not
connected to a wall switch. For optimum range and better reception, place
the telephone base in a central and open location.
Depending on the environmental conditions, make sure that your Bluetooth
wireless technology enabled cell phone is within 15 feet of where you install
the telephone base in order to maintain a reliable connection between your
Bluetooth wireless technology enabled cell phone, telephone base and
cell tower.
This product may be shipped with a protective sticker covering the handset
and/or telephone base display. Remove it before use.
Avoid placing the telephone base too close to:
• Communication devices such as personal computers, computer routers,
television sets, VCRs, wireless routers (wireless broadband, Wi-Fi, or
802.11) or other cordless telephones.
• Excessive heat sources.
• Noise sources such as a window with traffic outside, motors, microwave
ovens, refrigerators, or fluorescent lighting.
• Excessive dust sources such as a workshop or garage.
• Excessive moisture.
• Extremely low temperature.
• Mechanical vibration or shock such as on top of a washing machine or
work bench.
Getting started
Telephone base and charger installation
Install the telephone base and charger(s) as shown below.
Make sure that the electrical outlet is not controlled by a wall switch.
If you subscribe to digital subscriber line (DSL) high-speed Internet service
through your telephone line, you must install a DSL filter between the
telephone line cord and the telephone wall jack. The filter prevents noise and
caller ID problems caused by DSL interference. Contact your DSL service
provider for more information about DSL filters.

wall bracket hole and plug them into the bottom of the base.
4. Align the holes on the bracket with the standard wall plate and slide the
bracket down until it locks securely. Bundle the telephone line cord and
power adapter cord neatly with a twist tie.
Getting started
Wall-mount to tabletop installation

Introducing Bluetooth
Your new DS6321/6322 telephone system with Bluetooth wireless technology
has the following features:
• Pair up to four Bluetooth enabled cell phones with the telephone base.
• Connect a maximum of two cell phones to make and receive cell calls.
Only one cell phone can be active on a call at a time.
• Connect a Bluetooth enabled headset for making and receiving home calls.
• Conference cell and home calls.
• Make and receive calls using your cell phone plan while utilizing the ease
and comfort of your home telephone system.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION
•
•
•
•
•
•
After plugging in the telephone base, wait at least 20 seconds before
connecting a Bluetooth device. The screen shows Bluetooth system busy
if you try to connect too soon.
Refer to the user's manual of your Bluetooth enabled cell phone or
headset for more information about how that device uses Bluetooth
connectivity.
Bluetooth wireless technology operates within a short range (about 1
to 30 feet) from the telephone base. Keep connected cell phones and
headset within this range.
If your cell phone has poor reception in your home, the DS6321/6322
cannot improve the reception. However, if you have a location in your
house with better reception, you can leave your cell phone in that location
while you use the DS6321/6322 cell line. In order for this to work, the
telephone base must be within 30 feet of the cell phone.
Charge your cell phone while it is connected to the telephone base.
Your cell phone's battery will discharge faster while it is connected to the
telephone base via Bluetooth wireless technology.
Monitor your cell phone's usage because minutes are deducted from your
cellular plan for the duration of all cell calls.
Refer to the Bluetooth setup section (page 14) to learn how to set up and
manage your Bluetooth enabled device(s). Refer to the Telephone operation
section (page 39) on how to operate your Bluetooth devices with your new
DS6321/6322 telephone system with Bluetooth wireless technology. Refer to
the Troubleshooting section (page 77) if you experience difficulty using the
telephone system.

Bluetooth
Glossary of terms
Below are some terms used in this user’s manual to help you become
familiar with using your Bluetooth enabled devices and your new
DS6321/6322 telephone system.
Active devices - a maximum of two paired devices (two cell phones, or one
cell phone and one headset) on the active devices list can be connected to
the telephone base, but only one cell phone or headset can be on a call at
a time.
Bluetooth cell phone - refers to a Bluetooth enabled cellular telephone.
Cell line - the telephone line associated with your cell phone service. On
your DS6321/6322 handset, press
/CELL to use the cell line.
Connected - a Bluetooth enabled device (cell phone or headset) can only be
used when it is connected to the telephone base. When a Bluetooth enabled
device is connected to the telephone base and active on the active devices
list, it will be ready for use.
Disconnected - a diagonal line appears across devices 1 and/or 2 when
the corresponding Bluetooth enabled device is disconnected from the
telephone base.
Discoverable mode - before a Bluetooth enabled device can be paired, it
must be set to this mode. When pairing your cell phone, the telephone base
will be set to this mode. When pairing a headset, the headset must be set to
this mode. Depending on the manufacturer, this mode is sometimes referred
to as Find Me or Visibility.
Home line - your conventional telephone land line. On your DS6321/6322
handset, press /HOME/FLASH to use the home line.
Paired devices - once Bluetooth enabled devices have been paired with the
telephone base, they will appear on the paired devices list. A maximum of
four devices can be paired with the telephone base, but only two can be on
the active devices list.
Pairing - this refers to the process of Bluetooth enabled devices registering
device information with each other. The telephone base must be paired with a
Bluetooth enabled cell phone or headset before the Bluetooth device can be
used. Depending on the manufacturer, this is also referred to as Bonding.
PIN - by default, the PIN is 0000 for the telephone base and for most
Bluetooth devices. PIN information must be exchanged between
Bluetooth devices before they can be used. This is also known as a
Passkey or Passcode.

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 from the telephone service provider
after the first or second ring. Caller ID from the home line allows you to see
the name, number, date and time of the incoming calls. However, caller ID
from the cell line only shows the number of the incoming caller; date and time
of the call is not shown. The caller ID may appear differently if the caller is
matched to a directory entry (see Memory match on page 59).
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 and cell phone 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 any caller ID or call waiting services.
There are fees for caller ID services. In addition, services may not be
available in all areas.
Caller ID information is available only if both you and the caller are in
areas offering caller ID service, and if both telephone service providers
use compatible equipment.
Caller ID information may not be available for every incoming call. Callers
may intentionally block their names and/or telephone numbers. To view call
log entries with numbers between 16 and 24 digits, you must save the entry
to the directory (see page 61).
You can use this product with regular caller ID service, or you can use this
product’s other features without subscribing to caller ID or combined caller ID
with call waiting service.

Caller ID history
If you subscribe to caller ID service provided by your telephone service
provider and/or cell phone service provider, 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 50 entries. Each entry has up to 24 digits for the
phone number and 15 characters for the name. 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 are 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 call(s) shows when there are new call log entries (including
missed and unreviewed calls).

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 (fees may apply). 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 handsets, 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
/PLAY/STOP on the telephone base (page 65).
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.
You can use your telephone answering system and voicemail together by
setting your built-in answering system to answer before voicemail answers.
To learn how to program your voicemail settings, contact your telephone
service provider. 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 by following the instructions below.
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.

Can the DS6321/6322 help the poor cell phone reception in my house?
•
If your cell phone has poor reception in your home, the DS6321/6322 cannot
improve the reception. However, if you have a location in your house with
better reception, you can leave your cell phone in that location while you use
DS6321/6322 cell line. In order for this to work, the telephone base must be within
30 feet of the cell phone.
The listening volume of my cell call is too loud or quiet.
•
During a cell call, if the listening volume is to too loud or quiet, try changing the

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 power 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
/HOME/FLASH. Move closer to the telephone base, then
press
/HOME/FLASH to answer the call.
If the handset moves out of range during a telephone conversation, there might be interference.

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
