Getting started
Are you a new cable or VoIP subscriber?
If your answer is yes, the existing telephone jacks in your home may no longer
work. Your cable/VoIP service provider uses a different connection, separate
from your old traditional telephone service, to connect the modem/router/terminal
adapter installed in your home.
To allow all existing telephone jacks to work, contact your telephone service
provider for solutions, such as rewiring services (fees may apply).
If your answer is no, your existing telephone jacks will continue to work as normal.

Caller ID
About caller ID
This product supports caller ID services provided by most telephone service
providers. Caller ID allows you to see the name, number, date and time of calls.
Some names and numbers may not show because they are not available or
blocked by the caller. The caller ID information shows 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 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.

Caller ID
Caller ID log
If you subscribe to caller ID service, 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 caller ID log.
• The caller ID log stores up to 30 entries. Each entry has up to 24 digits for
the phone number and 15 characters for the name. If the telephone number
has more that 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.
• Call log empty displays when there are no records in the caller ID log.
• Caller ID log entries are shared by all system handsets (for multiple handset
models only). Any deletions made on one handset are reflected on all
other handsets.
• Only one handset can review the caller ID log at a time (for multiple handset
models only). If a handset tries to enter the caller ID log while another handset is
already in it, Not available displays.
• 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 29).
Missed call indicator
When there are calls that have not been reviewed in the caller ID
log, the handset displays XX missed calls.
Each time you review a caller ID log entry marked NEW, the
number of missed calls decreases by one.
When you have reviewed all the missed calls, the missed call
indicator no longer displays.
If you do not want to review the missed calls one by one,
press and hold CANCEL on the idle handset to erase the missed
call indicator. All the entries are then considered old.

Memory match
When the incoming telephone number matches the last seven digits of a telephone
number in your directory, the screen displays the stored name of the directory entry.
For example, if Linda Jones calls, her name appears as Linda if this is how you
entered it into your directory.
• The number shown in the caller ID log is in the format sent by the telephone service
provider. It usually delivers 10-digit telephone numbers (area code plus phone
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 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 XX new messages and
display on the handsets and the
message window on the telephone base flashes, there are new
messages recorded on the built-in answering system. To listen
to the messages recorded, press MENU twice on a handset
(page 39) or press /PLAY on the telephone base (page 39).
• If New voicemail and
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.
XX new messages
10:15 P M 2/25
New voicemail
10:15 P M 2/25
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.

Message capacity
The answering system can record and store up to 99 messages. Each message can

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.
When F and number of messages are flashing alternately on the message window
and the handsets display Rec mem full, then the memory is full. You cannot turn on

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 water. If the telephone base should fall into 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.

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.

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.

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 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, please
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.
If this equipment is malfunctioning, it must be unplugged from the modular jack until the problem has
been corrected. Repairs to this telephone equipment can only be made by the manufacturer or its
authorized agents. For repair procedures, follow the instructions outlined under the Warranty.
If this equipment is causing harm to the telephone network, the telephone service provider may
temporarily discontinue your telephone service. The telephone service provider is required to notify you
before interrupting service. If advance notice is not practical, you will be notified as soon as possible.
You will be given the opportunity to correct the problem and the telephone service provider is required
to inform you of your right to file a complaint with the FCC. Your telephone service provider may make
changes in its facilities, equipment, operation, or procedures that could affect the proper functioning of
this product. The telephone service provider is required to notify you if such changes are planned.
If this product is equipped with a corded or cordless handset, it is hearing aid compatible.
If this product has memory dialing locations, you may choose to store emergency telephone numbers
(e.g., police, fire, medical) in these locations. If you do store or test emergency numbers, please:
Remain on the line and briefly explain the reason for the call before hanging up.
Perform such activities in off-peak hours, such as early morning or late evening.
