About Caller Identification

Caller ID with Call Waiting features in this telephone let you see who’s calling before you answer the phone, even when you’re on another call. These features require services provided by your local telephone company.

Contact your telephone service provider if:

You have both Caller ID and Call Waiting, but as separate services (you may need combined service);

You have only Caller ID service, or only Call Waiting service;

You don’t subscribe to any Caller ID or Call Waiting services.

You can use this phone with regular Caller ID service, and you can use its other features without subscribing to either Caller ID or combined Caller ID with Call Waiting service. There may be fees for these services, and they may not be available in all areas.

Caller ID features will work only if both you and the caller are in areas offering Caller ID service, and if both telephone companies use compatible equipment.

See Caller ID Operation, beginning on page 21, for more details about how these features work.

Telephone operating range

This cordless telephone operates with the maximum power allowed by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Even so, this handset and base can communicate over only a certain distance — which can vary with the locations of the base and handset, the weather, and the construction of your home or office. For best performance, keep the base antenna fully upright.

If you receive a call while you are out of range, the handset might not ring — or if it does ring, the call might not connect when you press PHONE.

Move closer to the base, then press PHONE to answer the call.

If you move out of range during a phone conversation, you might hear noise or interference. To improve reception, move closer to the base.

If you move out of range without pressing OFF, your phone will be left “off the hook.” To hang up properly, walk back toward the telephone base, periodically pressing OFF until the call is disconnected.

In case of difficulty

If you have difficulty with your phone, please try the suggestions below. For Customer Service, visit our web site at www.telephones.att.com, or call 1 800 222–3111.

Telephone does not work at all

Make sure batteries are installed and charged correctly (see page 7).

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

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

Make sure the base antenna is fully upright.

If these suggestions do not work, unplug the base, remove and reinsert the batteries, then place the handset in the base to re-initialize.

Phone does not ring

Make sure the ringer is on (see pages 14-15).

Make sure the telephone line cord and AC adapter are plugged in properly (see page 6).

Make sure the base antenna is fully upright.

Move the handset closer to the base.

You might have too many extension phones on your telephone line to allow all of them to ring. Try unplugging some of them.

If you hear noise or interference during a call

Make sure the base antenna is fully upright.

You may be out of range. Move closer to the base.

Appliances plugged into the same circuit as the base can cause interference. Try moving the appliance or base to another outlet.

The layout of your home or office might be limiting the operating range. Try moving the base to another location, preferably on an upper floor.

If the buttons don’t work, try placing the handset in the base for at least 15 seconds.

Disconnect the base from the modular jack and plug in a corded telephone. If calls are still not clear, the problem is probably in your wiring or local service. Call your local telephone service company.

System does not answer after correct number of rings

Make sure that the answering system is on.

If Toll Saver is activated, the number of rings changes to two when you have new messages waiting (see page 28).

In some cases, the system may be affected by the ringing system used by the local telephone company.

If the memory is full or the system is off, the system will answer after 10 rings.

• You need to reset the answering system clock (see page 25).

message window

 

System does not respond to remote commands

Make sure to enter your Remote Access Code correctly (see page 33).

Make sure you are calling from a touch-tone phone. When you dial a number, you should hear tones. If you hear clicks, the phone is not a touch-tone telephone and cannot activate the answering system.

The answering system may not detect the Remote Access Code while your announcement is playing. Try waiting until the announcement is over before entering the code.

There may be noise or interference on the phone line you are using. Press dial-pad buttons firmly.

Announcement message is not clear

When you record your announcement, make sure you speak in a normal tone of voice, about 9 inches from the base.

Make sure there is no “background” noise (TV, music, etc.) while you are recording.

Before you begin

This cordless telephone operates with the maximum power allowed by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Even so, this handset and base can communicate over only a certain distance — which can vary with the locations of the base and handset, the weather, and the construction of your home or office. For best performance, keep the base antenna fully upright.

If you receive a call while you are out of range, the handset might not ring — or if it does ring, the call might not connect when you press PHONE.

Move closer to the base, then press PHONE to answer the call.

If you move out of range during a phone conversation, you might hear noise or interference. To improve reception, move closer to the base.

If you move out of range without pressing OFF, your phone will be left “off the hook.” To hang up properly, walk back toward the telephone base, periodically pressing OFF until the call is disconnected.
