About Caller ID

You can use this telephone with regular caller ID service or combined caller ID with call waiting. You can use the telephone’s other features without subscribing to caller ID services. There might be fees for caller ID services and these services might not be available in all areas.

Depending on your service, you might see the caller’s number or the caller’s name and number. The time and date are sent by the telephone company along with the call information.

This product can provide caller ID information only if both you and the caller are in areas offering caller ID service and if both telephone companies use compatible equipment.

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 might be necessary to change your telephone service to use caller ID with call waiting features.

Contact your telephone company if:

You have both caller ID and call waiting, but as separate services (you might need combined service).

You have only caller ID service, or only call waiting service.

You do not subscribe to any caller ID or call waiting services, but wish to order them.

About the Call 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’s 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 phone number has more than 15 but fewer than 24 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 call log.

You can review, redial, and copy an entry into the directory.

Entries appear 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).

CALL LOG EMPTY shows when there are no records in the call log.

Only one handset can review the call log at a time. If a handset tries to enter the call log while another

handset is already in it, NOT AVAILABLE AT THIS TIME appears.

nNotes:

CALL LOG EMPTY

The caller ID information might not be available for every incoming call. The callers might intentionally block their names and/or telephone numbers.

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 (see

“Save a Call Log Entry to the Directory” on page 26).

If the phone number has more than 24 digits, it is not saved or shown in the call log.

Missed Calls Indicator

When there are unreviewed calls in the call log, the handset shows XX MISSED CALL(S).

Each time you review a call log entry marked NEW, the number of missed calls decreases by one.

When you have reviewed all the missed calls, the missed calls indicator no longer shows.

If you do not want to review the missed calls one by one, press and hold OFF/CLEAR to erase the missed calls indicator. All the entries are then considered old and kept in the call log.

Make sure the power adapter is securely plugged into an outlet not controlled by a wall switch.

Make sure the telephone line cord is plugged firmly into the telephone base and the telephone wall jack.

Unplug the electrical power to the telephone base. Wait for approximately 15 seconds, then plug it back in. Allow up to one minute for the cordless handset and telephone base to synchronize.

Charge the battery in the handset for up to 16 hours.

If the battery is completely depleted, it can take up to 10 minutes to charge the handset before PLACE IN CHARGER orLOW BATTERY appears on the screen (page 7).

Remove and re-insertthe battery. If that still does not work, it might be necessary to purchase a new battery.

Disconnect the telephone base from the telephone wall jack and plug in a working telephone. If the other telephone does not work, the problem is probably in the wiring or the local service. Call the local telephone company.

Low Battery shows on screen.

Place the handset in the telephone base or charger for recharging.

Remove and re-installthe battery and use it until fully depleted, then recharge the handset in the telephone base or charger for up to 16 hours.

Move the handset closer to the telephone base. It might be out of range.

The telephone line cord might be malfunctioning. Install a new telephone line cord.

Disconnect the telephone base from the telephone wall jack and connect a different telephone. If there is no dial tone on this telephone either, the problem is in your wiring or local service. Contact your local telephone company.

The telephone does not ring when there is an incoming call.

Make sure the handset ringer volume is not set to the lowest level and the telephone base ringer volume is not set to zero (page 12).

Make sure the telephone line cord and power adapter are plugged in properly (page 5).

The handset might be too far from the telephone base. Move it closer to the telephone base.

There might be too many extension phones on the telephone line to allow all of them to ring simultaneously. Unplug some of them.
