Battery charging
Once you have installed the battery, the screen indicates the battery status (see
the table below). If necessary, place the handset in the telephone base or charger
to charge the battery. For best performance, keep the handset in the telephone
base or charger when not in use. The battery is fully charged after 10 hours of
continuous charging. See the table on page 58 for battery operating times.
If the screen is blank or displays Place in charger, you need to charge the
handset without interruption for at least 30 minutes to give the handset enough
charge to use the telephone for a short time. When the battery is low, the
handset displays Low battery along with a flashing icon. If you are on a call in
low battery mode, the handset plays short beeps to alert you.
The following table summarizes the battery charge indicators and actions to take.

of the telephone base. Plug the small end of the power adapter into the
POWER jack on the bottom of the telephone base.

tabs (marked A) on the wall mount bracket. Make sure the upper portion
grooves of the telephone base are above the upper portion tabs on the wall
mount bracket.

it into the telephone wall jack. Route the power cord out of the bottom of the
telephone and plug it into an electrical outlet not controlled by a wall switch.

Caller ID
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.
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 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 may be 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.

Caller ID
Caller ID 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 caller ID log.
• The caller ID 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 caller ID log.
• You can review, redial and copy an entry into the directory.
• Entries appear in reverse chronological order.
• When the caller ID log is full, the oldest entry is deleted to make room for new
incoming call information.
• XX Missed calls displays when there are new caller ID log entries that have
not been reviewed.
• Caller ID log empty displays when you access the caller ID log with no records.
• Only one handset can review the caller ID log at a time. If a handset tries to
enter the caller ID 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 caller ID 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 caller ID 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.
39
Caller ID
Missed call indicator
When there are calls that have not been reviewed in the caller ID log, the
handset displays XX Missed calls. When you have reviewed all the missed calls,
the missed call indicator no longer displays.
Each time you review a caller ID log entry marked NEW, the
number of missed calls decreases by one.
If you do not want to review the missed calls one by one,
press and hold OFF/CANCEL when the handset is not in use
to clear the missed call indicator. All the entries are then
considered old and kept in the caller ID log.

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 XX New messages display on the handset and the message window
on the telephone base flashes, there are new messages in the built-in answering
system. To listen to the messages recorded on your digital answering system,
press
/PLAY/STOP on the telephone base. To listen to messages with a
handset, see To play messages with a handset on page 51.
• 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.
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.
Using the answering system and voicemail together
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.
48
Answering system operation
Message capacity
The answering system can record and store up to 99 messages. The recording
time of each message depends on the message length you set (see Message
recording time on page 47). 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.
New message indication
The message window on the telephone base flashes and XX New messages
displays on the handset when there are new answering system messages.
If the message alert tone is turned on, the telephone base beeps every 10
seconds when there are messages that have not been reviewed.

Expand your telephone system
The handsets provided with your telephone system are already registered.
Each handset is assigned a number that displays on the handset. Additional
handsets registered to the telephone system are assigned in sequential order.
For instance, if the telephone system already has HANDSET 1 and HANDSET 2,
the new registered handset is assigned HANDSET 3. After registration, you may
rename the handsets (see Rename handset on page 16). This telephone system
accommodates up to 12 handsets.
Add and register a handset
You can add new handsets (LS6405, purchased separately) to your telephone
system. Each handset must be registered with the telephone base before use.
When first purchased, each handset displays Put HS on BASE to register. You
may need to charge the handset before registering it to the telephone base. For
more details on battery charging, see page 4.
To register a handset:
1. Make sure the handset is out of the telephone base or
handset charger and shows
Put HS on BASE to register. Place the handset you
wish to register in the telephone base.
2. The handset displays Registering...Please wait and the
red IN USE light on the telephone base turns on. It takes
about 90 seconds to complete the registration process.
The handset displays HANDSET X Registered
(X represents the registered handset number).
The IN USE light turns off and the handset beeps when
registration completes.
If registration fails, the system will automatically try to register
again. If registration fails after the third try, the handset displays
Registration failed then Put HS on BASE to register. This
may take up to five minutes to occur.
To reset the handset, remove it from the telephone base.
When the handset displays Put HS on BASE to register,
try the registration process again.
After registration, the date and time need to be reset.
For instructions, see Set date and time on page 13.

Appendix
Deregister handsets
If you want to replace a handset, or reassign the designated handset number of
a registered handset, you must deregister all handsets that are registered to the
telephone base. Then register each handset individually.
To make deregistration easier, read all of the instructions on this page before
you begin.
Make sure that all handsets are out of the telephone base and handset chargers
before you begin deregistration.
To deregister all handsets:
1. Press and hold /FIND HANDSET on the telephone base for about 10
seconds until the IN USE light on the telephone base turns on and starts
flashing.
2. Press and release /FIND HANDSET again. You must press /FIND HANDSET
while the IN USE light is still flashing. The IN USE light flashes for approximately
seven seconds.
3. The deregistration process takes about 10 seconds to complete. All handsets
show Put HS on BASE to register.
If deregistration fails, you may need to reset the telephone base and try again.

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 may not ring, or if it does ring, the call may 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 may be interference. To
improve reception, move closer to the telephone base.
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

FCC Part 15
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the requirements for a Class B digital device
under Part 15 of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) rules. These requirements are intended
to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment
generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance
with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no
guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful
interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and
on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
•
Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
•
Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.
•
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
Changes or modifications to this equipment not expressly approved by the party responsible for
compliance could void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions:
(1) this device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference
received, including interference that may cause undesired operation. Privacy of communications may not
be ensured when using this telephone.
To ensure safety of users, the FCC has established criteria for the amount of radio frequency energy
that can be safely absorbed by a user or bystander according to the intended usage of the product. This
product has been tested and found to comply with the FCC criteria. The handset may be safely held
against the ear of the user. The telephone base shall be installed and used such that parts of the user’s
body other than the hands are maintained at a distance of approximately 20 cm (8 inches) or more.
This Class B digital apparatus complies with Canadian ICES-003.
FCC Part 68 and ACTA
This equipment complies with Part 68 of the FCC rules and with technical requirements adopted by
the Administrative Council for Terminal Attachments (ACTA). The label on the back or bottom of this
equipment contains, among other things, a product identifier in the format US:AAAEQ##TXXXX. This
identifier must be provided to your telephone service provider upon request.
The plug and jack used to connect this equipment to premises wiring and the telephone network
must comply with applicable Part 68 rules and technical requirements adopted by ACTA. A compliant
telephone cord and modular plug is provided with this product. It is designed to be connected to a
compatible modular jack that is also compliant. An RJ11 jack should normally be used for connecting to a
single line and an RJ14 jack for two lines. See the installation instructions in the user’s manual.
The Ringer Equivalence Number (REN) is used to determine how many devices you may connect to your
telephone line and still have them ring when you are called. The REN for this product is encoded as the
6th and 7th characters following the US: in the product identifier (e.g., if ## is 03, the REN is 0.3). In most,
but not all areas, the sum of all RENs should be five (5.0) or less. For more information, contact your
telephone service provider.
This equipment may not be used with Party Lines. If you have specially wired alarm dialing equipment
connected to your telephone line, ensure the connection of this equipment does not disable your alarm
equipment. If you have questions about what will disable alarm equipment, consult your telephone service
provider or a qualified installer.
