Getting started

Telephone base installation

Choose a central location close to a telephone jack and a power outlet not connected to a wall switch. The telephone base can be placed on a flat surface or mounted on a standard wall plate. For optimum range and better reception, place the telephone base in a high and open location.

Avoid placing the telephone base too close to:

Communication devices such as: personal computers, computer routers, television sets, VCRs, wireless routers (wireless broadband, wi-fi, or 802.11) 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.

Excessive moisture.

Extremely low temperatures.

Mechanical vibration or shock such as on top of the washing machine or work bench.

Getting started

Telephone base installation

1. Plug one end of the telephone line cord into the telephone jack at the bottom of the telephone base.

5. Plug the other end of the telephone line cord into a telephone jack.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

DSL filter

Telephone line cord

 

 

 

 

(Optional for DSL users,

 

see number four in the

 

note section, below.)

 

2. Plug the small end of the power adapter into the power jack at the bottom of the telephone base.

3. Route cords through slots.

4. Plug the large end of the larger power adapter into an electrical outlet not controlled by a wall switch.

NOTES:

1.Use only the power cord supplied with this product, or equivalent. To order a replacement power cord, visit our website at www.telephones.att.com, or call 1 (800) 222-3111; in Canada, call 1 (866) 288-4268.

2.Be sure to use an electrical outlet not controlled by a wall switch.

3.This power unit 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, under-the-table or cabinet outlet.

4.If you receive high speed internet through your telephone line (commonly referred to as DSL), and you are experiencing interference during telephone conversations and/or your caller ID features are not functioning properly, install a DSL filter to the telephone line between the telephone base and the telephone wall jack. Contact your DSL service provider for a DSL filter.

Getting started

Battery installation & charging

After installing the battery, you may be able to make and receive short calls. For best performance, place the handsets in the telephone base or the charger and charge for 16 hours before use.

You can keep the battery charged by returning the handsets to the telephone base or the charger after use. When the battery is fully depleted, a recharge takes about 12 hours. The average talk time on a fully charged battery is about eight hours, and the standby time is approximately five days. Actual battery life depends on usage conditions and age of battery.

1. Plug the small end of the smaller power adapter into the jack on the underside of the charger, then route the cord through the slot as shown.

2. Plug the large end of the smaller power adapter into an electrical outlet not controlled by a wall switch.

NOTES:

1.Of the dial pad or quick search keys (2-9), each key is corresponds to the letters. Please refer to page 27 for details.

2.If there is no name entry matching the first letter of the key, the directory will display a name entry matching the second letter of the key.

If there is more than one entry beginning with the same letter, it will be necessary to scroll through all the names that begin with that letter before seeing names that beginning with the next letter.

For example, if there are name entries for Jennifer, Jessie, Kevin and Linda in the directory, pressing the dialpad key 5 once will show Jennifer, twice for Jessie, three times Kevin and four times for Linda. If you press 4, and if there is no name entry which matches those letters, the directory will show Jennifer because it is the name entry which matches the next available letter (J) in the directory.

Information about caller ID with call waiting

This product has a caller ID function with call waiting feature which works with service from your local telephone company.

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 combined service).

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

You do not have any caller ID or call waiting services.

This product can be used with regular caller ID service, or this product’s other features can be used without subscribing to either caller ID or combined caller ID with call waiting service.

There are fees for caller ID services. In addition, services may not be available in all areas.

Depending on your service, you may see the caller’s number or the caller’s name and number. 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.

About names

Names of callers will be displayed only if the information is provided by your local telephone company.

If the telephone number of the caller matches an exact number in the directory, the name that

appears on screen will match the name already in the directory.

Example: If Christine Smith calls, her name will appear as Chris if this is how it was entered in the directory.

NOTE: The number shown in your caller ID will be in the format sent by the telephone company. The telephone company usually delivers ten-digit telephone numbers (area code plus telephone number). If the telephone number of the person calling does not exactly match a number in your directory, the name will appear as delivered by the telephone company. For example if the telephone company includes the area code and the directory number does not, the name will appear as delivered by the telephone company.

Missed calls

When a handset is in idle mode with un-reviewed calls, its screen will show XX MISSED CALLS.

Un-reviewed entries will be counted as missed calls when the telephone is idle. Each time a call log entry marked NEW is reviewed, the number of missed calls decreases by one.

If there are too many missed calls and you don’t want to review them one by one but still want to keep them in the caller ID log, press and hold OFF/CLEAR for four seconds when the handset is idle. All reviewed entries in the caller ID log will be considered old and the counter is reset to 0.

Make sure there is a dial tone before dialing. It is normal if the cordless handset takes a second or two to synchronize with the telephone before producing a dial tone. Wait an extra second before dialing.

Check that all the telephones connected to the same telephone line are hung up.

Makes sure the telephone is set to the correct dial mode (pulse dial or tone dial) for the service in your area. Refer to the Handset settings section of this user’s manual (page 18) to set the dial mode.

If the other telephones in your home are having the same problem, the problem is in the wiring or local service. Contact your local telephone company (charges may apply).

Eliminate any background noise. Noise from a television, radio, or other appliances may cause the telephone 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.

Make sure all the telephones connected to the telephone line are hung up.

Appendix

Important safety instructions

Especially about cordless telephones

Privacy: The same features that make a cordless phone convenient create some limitations. Telephone calls are transmitted between the base and the handset by radio waves, so there is a possibility that your cordless phone conversations could be intercepted by radio receiving equipment within range of the cordless handset. For this reason, you should not think of cordless phone conversations as being as private as those on corded phones.

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 handset if the telephone base is unplugged or switched off, or if the electrical power is interrupted.

Power adapter: The 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-the-table/cabinet outlet.

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 either nickel-cadmium or nickelmetal hydride rechargeable batteries. Exercise care in handling batteries in order not to short the battery 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-cadmium rechargeable batteries: Must be recycled or disposed of properly. Do not dispose of in household garbage. 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 RBRCSeal means that the manufacturer is voluntarily participating in an industry program to collect and recycle nickel-cadmium 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 nickel-cadmium Batteries.

Important safety instructions

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.

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 had recommended to physicians that:

Pacemaker patients

Should keep wireless phones at least six inches from the pacemaker.

Should NOT place wireless phones directly over the pacemaker, such as in a breast pocket, when it is turned ON.

Should use the wireless phone at the ear opposite the pacemaker.

WTR’s evaluation did not identify any risk to bystanders with pacemakers from other persons using wireless phones.

Especially about telephones answering systems

Two-way recording:  This unit does not sound warning beeps to let the other party know 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 call.
