your area code into the telephone as the home area code. When you receive
a call from within your home area code, the caller ID history only displays the
seven digits of the telephone number.
This feature makes it easy for you to place a call from the caller ID log. If you
dial 10 digits to make a local phone call, do not use this home area code
feature. If you do, you cannot place local calls from your caller ID log, as they
will have only seven digits.

Caller ID
About caller ID
This product supports caller ID services offered by most telephone service
providers. Caller ID allows you to see the name, number, date and time of calls.
The available caller ID information will appear after the first or second ring.
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 call, even while on another call.
It might 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 might need to combine these services).
• You have only caller ID service, or only call waiting service.

• You don’t 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, along with the call information, are from the
telephone service provider.
Caller ID information might 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 38)

Caller ID history
How the caller ID history (call log) works
The telephone stores caller ID information about the
last 50 incoming calls in the telephone base. Entries are
stored in reverse chronological order. The phone deletes
the oldest entry when the log is full to make room for
new calls. This information is common to all handsets,
so changes made using any handset are reflected in
all other handsets. If you answer a call before the
information appears on the screen, it does not show in
the caller ID history.

and 15 characters for the name.
Missed (new) calls indicator
When a handset is in idle mode and has new or missed calls, its screen
shows XX Missed call(s).
All new or missed entries are counted as missed calls. Each

Your telephone has separate indicators for two different types of voice
messages: those left on its built-in digital answering system
HANDSET 1
and those left at your telephone service provider’s voicemail 1 New message
(fees may apply). Your telephone’s built-in digital answering
ANS ON
system messages and voicemail messages are separate.
10:21
10/15
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.
Some telephone 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.

About the answering system
Message capacity
The answering system can record up to 99 messages, depending on the
length of each message. Individual messages can be up to four minutes,
and the maximum recording time is approximately 14 minutes. The actual
recording time depends on individual message characteristics. Messages
remain available for replay until you delete them.
When there are new messages (including memos) on the answering system,
the number of messages stored flashes in the message counter.
If the answering system has three minutes of recording time left, it
announces, “Less than three minutes to record,” before message playback
at the handset or the telephone base. The handset screen displays Less
than 3 minutes to record before message playback. If the memory is low,
Rec mem low displays on the handset screen in idle mode. When you turn
on the answering system at the telephone base, it announces, “Calls will be
answered. Less than three minutes to record.”
If the memory is full, the answering system announces, “Memory is full,” before
message playback. The handset screen displays Rec mem full in idle mode and
the number of messages and F flashe alternately in the message counter at
the telephone base. You cannot turn on the answering system and record new
messages until old ones have been deleted. Memory full displays if you want
to turn on the answering system on the handset but there is no memory.
Voice prompts
The system provides voice prompts to guide you through the setup
procedures at the telephone base, message playback, remote access and
recording outgoing announcements.
Call screening at the telephone base
If the answering system and call screening are on, the announcement and
the incoming message broadcast at the telephone base when a call arrives.
You can turn call screening on or off using the handset (see page 18). When
call screening is off, you can temporarily turn on call screening by pressing
pVOLUME on the telephone base. Call screening will be off for the next
incoming call.
If call screening is on and you want to silence the telephone base while it
is recording messages, press qVOLUME on the telephone base until the
displays shows 1. This volume setting is shared with message playback, so
when you play messages at volume 1, they play at a very low volume. If you
increase the volume for playback, the next incoming message plays at the
same volume level.

Appendix
Important safety information
Especially 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 handset
by radio waves, so there is a possibility that your 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 which is not controlled by a wall switch. Calls cannot be made from
the 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 TVs 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 will often
reduce or eliminate the interference.
•
Rechargeable batteries: This product contains nickel-metal hydride rechargeable batteries.
Exercise care in handling batteries in order not to create a short circuit with conductive
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. Like other batteries of this type, if burned or punctured, they could
release caustic material which could cause injury.
The RBRC™ Seal means that the manufacturer is voluntarily participating in an
industry program to collect and recycle nickel-metal hydride rechargeable batteries
when taken out of service within the United States. These batteries may be taken to
a participating local retailer of replacement batteries or recycling center. Or you may
call 1 (800) 8-BATTERY for locations accepting spent Ni-MH batteries.
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.
Especially about telephone answering systems
Two-way recording: This unit does not sound warning beeps to inform the other party that the
call is being recorded. To ensure that you are in compliance with any federal or state regulations
regarding recording a telephone call, you should start the recording process and then inform the
other party that you are recording the conversation.

DECT 6.0 digital technology
The AT&T DECT 6.0 products offer unsurpassed range performance and sound clarity. This is
achieved through a unique antenna design and advances in noise-filtering technology. An
independent laboratory has confirmed that AT&T DECT 6.0 products perform up to 45% better
in range competitions. Now calls can be taken in the basement, backyard and garage with
exceptional sound quality.
Telephone operating range
This cordless telephone operates within 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 construction of your home or office.
Redefining long range coverage and clarity
This telephone base comes with an antenna which gives much better clarity and covers a longer
range than before.
