You must install and charge the
handset battery before using the
cordless handset.
STOP!
See pages 5-6 for easy instructions.
Install the telephone base close to a telephone jack and a power outlet not
controlled by a wall switch. The telephone base can be placed on a flat

and better reception, place the telephone base in a central and open
location.
If you subscribe to high-speed Internet service (digital subscriber line - DSL)
through your telephone line, you must install a DSL filter between the
telephone line cord and the telephone wall jack (see the following page). The
filter prevents noise and caller ID problems caused by DSL interference.
Please contact your DSL service provider for more information about DSL
filters.
Your product may be shipped with a protective sticker covering the handset or
telephone base display - remove it before use.
For customer service or product information, visit our website at
www.telephones.att.com or call 1 (866) 288-4268.
Avoid placing the telephone base too close to:
• Communication devices such as: television sets, VCRs, 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.

Caller ID
About caller ID
This product supports caller ID services provided by most
local telephone service companies. Depending on your
service subscription, you may see the caller’s number, or
the caller’s name and number that are sent by the
telephone company 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
DISJT!TNJUI
999.833.8813
NEW
21;12 BN
:036
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 company 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 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 companies use
compatible equipment. The time and date are sent by the telephone company
along with the call information.
The caller ID information may not be available for every incoming call. The
callers may intentionally block their names and/or telephone numbers. To
view call log entries with numbers between 16 and 23 digits, you must save
the entry to the directory (page 35). For instructions on viewing the digits,
see the first note on page 29.
NOTE: 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.
31
Caller ID
Caller ID operation
Memory match
If the incoming telephone number exactly matches a
telephone number in your directory, the name that
appears on the screen matches the corresponding
name in your directory.
For example, if Christine Smith calls, her name appears as
Chris if this is how you entered it into your directory.
NOTE: The number shown by your caller ID is in the format
sent by the phone company. The phone company usually
delivers ten-digit phone numbers (area code plus phone
number). If the telephone number of the caller does not
exactly match a number in your directory, the name appears
as it is delivered by the phone company. For example, if the
phone company includes the area code and the directory
number does not, the name appears as delivered by the
phone company.

If you do not want to review the missed calls one by one,
but you still want to keep them in the caller ID history, you
can press and hold OFF/CLEAR for four seconds when
the handset is idle. All the entries in the caller ID history
are considered old (reviewed), and the missed calls

Caller ID
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.

Review the caller ID history to find out who called, to
easily return the call, or to copy the caller’s name and
number into your directory.
XX MISSED CALL(S) appears if there are new call log
entries (including missed and unreviewed calls). CALL
LOG EMPTY appears if there are no records in the call
log.
NOTES:
1. Only one handset can review the caller ID history at a time. If another handset
attempts to enter the directory or caller ID history, it shows NOT AVAILABLE AT
THIS TIME.
2. Each entry may have 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. For call log entries with numbers between 16 and 23 digits, in
order to view the entire number, you must save the entry to the Directory (page
35). For instructions on viewing the digits, see the first note on page 29. If the
phone number has more than 24 digits, it is not saved or shown in the call log.
3. The caller ID information might not be available for every incoming call. The
callers might intentionally block their names and/or telephone numbers.

About the answering system
Answering system and voicemail
Your telephone has both a digital answering system and voicemail indication.
Most telephone companies offer voicemail service (fees may apply). Your
telephone’s answering system and voicemail indication are independent
features. Each alerts you to new messages differently. For more information
on the voicemail indicators, see page 12. To listen to your voicemail, you
typically follow the instructions provided by your voicemail service provider.
To listen to messages recorded on your digital answering system, press
PLAY/STOP button on the telephone base.
If you subscribe to caller ID/call waiting service through your telephone
service provider, you can use your telephone answering system and voicemail
together. Set your answering system to answer calls at least two rings earlier
than your voicemail is set to answer. For example, set your voicemail to
answer calls after six rings and set your answering system to answer after
four rings.
NOTE: 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. By doing this, 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.
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 approximate recording time is 11 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 number of message and F are flashing alternatively in the message
counter, the memory is full. You must delete some messages before
recording new ones.
Turn the answering system on or off at the telephone base
Unless you change it, the answering system is on and
ready to record messages. You can turn the answering
system off, but if you do so, the answering system does
not answer calls and record incoming messages.
Press
ANS ON/OFF to turn the answering system on
or off. If the answering system is turned on, it announces
“Calls will be answered.” If the answering system is
turned off, it announces “Calls will not be answered.”

NOTE: If the answering system has less than five minutes of
recording time left, the remaining time is announced.

• Make sure the power cord is securely plugged in.
• Make sure that the battery connector is securely
plugged into the cordless handset.
• Make sure the telephone line cord is securely and
firmly plugged into the telephone base and the
telephone wall jack.
• Charge the battery in the cordless handset for at
least 16 hours. For optimum daily performance,
return the cordless handset to the telephone base
or charger when not in use.
• If the battery is depleted, it may take approximately
ten minutes to charge the handset before it shows

• You may need to purchase a new battery. Please
refer to Battery installation & charging (pages 56), in this user’s manual.
I cannot get a dial
tone.
• First try all the suggestions above.
• Move the cordless handset closer to the telephone
base. You might have moved out of range.
• If the previous suggestions don’t work, disconnect
the telephone base from the telephone jack and
connect to a different phone. If there is no dial tone
on that phone either, the problem is in your wiring
or local service. Contact your local telephone
company.
• Your line cord might be malfunctioning. Try installing
a new line cord.

the telephone base and produce a dial tone. This is
normal. Wait an extra second before dialing.
• Eliminate any background noise. Noise from a
television, radio or other appliances may cause the
phone to not dial out properly. If you cannot
eliminate the background noise, first try muting the
cordless handset before dialing, or dialing from
another room in your home with less background
noise.
• If the other phones in your home are having the same
problem, the problem is in your wiring or local
service. Contact your local telephone company
(charges may apply).

you must install a DSL filter between the telephone
base and the telephone wall jack (see page 4). The
filter prevents noise and caller ID problems caused by
DSL interference. Please contact your DSL service
provider for more information about DSL filters.
• You may be able to improve the performance of your

• If your phone is plugged in with a modem or a surge
protector, plug the phone (or modem/surge
protector) into a different location. If this doesn't
solve the problem, re-locate your phone or modem
farther apart from one another, or use a different
surge protector.
• Relocate your phone to a higher location. The phone
will likely have better reception when installed in a
high area.
• If the other phones in your home are having the same
problem, the problem is in your wiring or local service.
Contact your local telephone company (charges may

listening to your party, press MUTE to temporarily
turn your microphone off. When it is your turn to
speak, remember to press MUTE again to turn the
microphone on.
• Excessive background noise will cause a
speakerphone to fade in and out. Try controlling the
background noise by turning off any audio devices
near the speakerphone. Also, try to avoid interrupting
the person at the other end of the conversation while
they are speaking. If background noise cannot be
controlled, you should terminate speakerphone
operation and return to normal handset mode.

Appendix D
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 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 electric
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
water. If the telephone base should fall into water, DO NOT RETRIEVE IT UNTIL YOU UNPLUG THE
POWER CORD AND TELEPHONE LINE CORDS FROM THE WALL. Then pull the telephone out by the
unplugged cords.

This symbol is to alert you to important operating or servicing instructions that may appear in
this user’s manual. Always follow basic safety precautions when using this product to reduce the
risk of injury, fire, or electric shock.
Safety information
• Read and understand all instructions in the user’s manual. Observe all markings on the product.
• Avoid using a telephone during a thunderstorm. There may be a slight chance of electric shock from
lightning.
• Do not use a telephone in the vicinity of a gas leak. If you suspect a gas leak, report it immediately,
but use a telephone away from the area where the gas is leaking. If this product is a cordless model,
make sure the telephone base is also away from the area.
• Do not use this product near water, or when you are wet. For example, do not use it in a wet
basement or shower, or next to a swimming pool, bathtub, kitchen sink, or laundry tub. Do not use
liquids or aerosol sprays for cleaning. If the product comes in contact with any liquid, unplug any
line or power cord immediately. Do not plug the product back in until it has dried thoroughly.
• Install this product in a protected location where no one can trip over any line or power cords.
Protect cords from damage or abrasion.
• If this product does not operate normally, see the Troubleshooting section on pages 48-55 of this
user’s manual. If you cannot solve the problem, or if the product is damaged, refer to the Limited
warranty section on pages 62-63. Do not open this product except as directed in your user’s
manual. Opening the product or reassembling it incorrectly may expose you to hazardous voltages
or other risks.
• Replace batteries only as described in your user’s manual (pages 5-6). Do not burn or puncture

• This power adapter is intended to be correctly oriented in a vertical or floor mount position. The
prongs are not designed to hold the plug in place if it is plugged into a ceiling or an under-thetable/cabinet outlet.
Caution: Use only the power adapter provided with this product. To obtain a replacement, visit our
website at www.telephones.att.com or call 1
(866) 288-4268.
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.
58
Appendix E

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
