Getting started
Installation
Install the telephone base close to a telephone jack and a power outlet not connected to a wall switch. For optimum range and better reception, place the telephone base in a central and open location.
When using a Bluetooth wireless technology enabled cell phone with this telephone, make sure the cell phone is within 15 feet of the telephone base to maintain a reliable connection between the cell phone and telephone base.
This product may be shipped with protective stickers covering the handsets and telephone base displays. Remove them before use.
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 trafc outside, motors, microwave
ovens, refrigerators, or uorescent lighting.
Excessive dust sources such as a workshop or garage.
Excessive moisture.
Extremely low temperature.
Mechanical vibration or shock such as on top of a washing machine or
work bench.

Telephone base and charger installation
Install the telephone base and charger(s) as shown below. Make sure that the electrical outlet is not controlled by a wall switch. If you subscribe to digital subscriber line (DSL) high-speed Internet service
through your telephone line, you must install a DSL lter between the
telephone line cord and the telephone wall jack. The lter prevents noise and
caller ID problems caused by DSL interference. Contact your DSL service
provider for more information about DSL lters.

Introducing Bluetooth
Your new DS6421 telephone system with Bluetooth wireless technology has the following features:
Pair up to four Bluetooth enabled devices (cell phones or headsets) with
• the telephone base.
Connect a maximum of two cell phones to make and receive cell calls.
• Only one cell phone can be active on a call at a time.
Connect one Bluetooth enabled headset for making and receiving
• home calls.
Conference cell and home calls.
• Make and receive calls using your cell phone plan while utilizing the ease
• and comfort of your home telephone system.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION
After plugging in the telephone base, wait at least 20 seconds before
• connecting a Bluetooth device. The screen shows Bluetooth system busy if you try to connect too soon.
Refer to the user's manual of your Bluetooth enabled cell phone or
• headset for more information about how that device uses Bluetooth connectivity.
Bluetooth wireless technology operates within a short range (a maximum
• of approximately 30 feet) from the telephone base. Keep connected cell phones and headset within this range.
If your cell phone has poor reception in your home, the DS6421 cannot
• improve the reception. However, if there is a location in your house with better reception, you can leave your cell phone at that location while you use the DS6421 cell line. In order for this to work, the telephone base must be within 30 feet of the cell phone.
Charge your cell phone while it is connected to the telephone base.
• Your cell phone's battery will discharge faster while it is connected to the telephone base via Bluetooth wireless technology.
Monitor your cell phone's usage because minutes are deducted from your
• cellular plan for the duration of all cell calls.
Refer to Bluetooth setup (page 17) to learn how to set up and manage your Bluetooth enabled devices. Refer to Telephone operation (page 42) on how to operate your Bluetooth devices with your new DS6421 telephone system with Bluetooth wireless technology. Refer to Troubleshooting (page 98) if
you experience difculty using the telephone system.

Bluetooth
Glossary of terms
Below are some terms used in this user’s manual to help you become familiar with using your Bluetooth enabled devices and your new
DS6421 telephone system. Active device slots - the Device list has two active slots for two cell
phones, or one cell phone and one headset. When a device on the list is active, D1 or D2 displays in front of the device name. In order to use a Bluetooth device on a call, it must be in an active slot and be connected.
Bluetooth cell phone - refers to a Bluetooth enabled cellular telephone.
Cell line - the telephone line associated with your cell phone service. On your DS6421 handset, press /CELL to use the cell line.
Connected - when you pair a Bluetooth device to the DS6421, it is placed
in an active slot and automatically connected. When a device is connected, 1 and/or 2 displays after on the handset and the D1 and/or D2 light on the telephone base is on. If a device loses its connection to the telephone base, it must be reconnected before you can use the device with the DS6421.
Disconnected - when a device is disconnected, 1 and/or 2 displays after on the handset and the D1 and/or D2 light on the telephone base is off.
Discoverable mode - before a Bluetooth enabled device can be paired, it must be set to this mode. When pairing your cell phone, the telephone base will be set to this mode. When pairing a headset, the headset must be set to this mode. Depending on the manufacturer, this mode is sometimes referred to as Find Me or Visibility.
Home line - your conventional telephone land line. On your DS6421 handset, press /HOME/FLASH to use the home line.
Paired devices - once Bluetooth enabled devices have been paired with the telephone base, they appear on the device list. A maximum of four devices can be paired with the telephone base.
Pairing - this refers to the process of Bluetooth enabled devices registering device information with each other. The telephone base must be paired with a Bluetooth enabled cell phone or headset before the Bluetooth device can be used. Depending on the manufacturer, this is also referred to as Bonding.
PIN - by default, the PIN is 0000 for the telephone base and for most Bluetooth devices. PIN information must be exchanged between Bluetooth devices before they can be used. This is also known as a Passkey or Passcode.
