Getting to Know Your Phone
There are many models of Uniden Cordless phones. While the models vary, most features of the phones are the same. Before using your cordless phone, it is important that you familiarize yourself with the features. Every Uniden Cordless phone comes with a handset that includes a LDC display, standard number display and key setting options. Your Headset Jack Cover will appear on the left or right side of your cordless phone and will be marked with a headset icon. The handset's charging contacts will rest at the bottom of the handset. Plug in your charging base. You will need to plug in the provided DC 9V jack and the telephone line. Install the handset's rechargeable battery. Remove the battery's case cover and place the battery pack in the battery compartment. Place the cover back on the back of the handset and slide it upwards until it clicks. Once completed, rest the handset in the base and allow it to fully charge. The battery icon that appears on your handset's LCD screen will indicate the battery's status. Allow four charging hours for a full battery life. For the best reception, place the base in a high resting position and away from electrical sources such as microwaves, fluorescent lighting and refrigerators.
Your Uniden Cordless phone will require some basic setup. First, you will need to select your language. Your language choices are English, French and Spanish. Press the Menu button on your handset and select the Handset Setup menu. Next, select the Language submenu, move the cursor to your language choice, using the arrow key.
