Additional Information :

This phone uses a digital security code to prevent unauthorized access to your base unit by other cordless phones. This security code is an identification code used to connect the handset and the base unit. Normally, it does not need to be changed. However, if you suspect another cordless phone is using the same security code, you can change the code:

  • Press + to select Yes
  • Press select/ch (a confirmation tone is heard and De-Registration Complete appears in the display)

This phone uses the Uniden BT-446 battery. A fully charged battery will last for 4 hours continuous use/ 8 days when the phone is in standby mode. To maintain a good charge, clean the battery contacts on the handset and base unit with a dry cloth or a pencil eraser about once a month. Do not use any liquids or solvents.

Recharge your phone on a regular basis by returning the handset to the base after each call.

Inbound Caller I.D.  

This phone displays incoming local and campus telephone numbers. Only telephone numbers are displayed, not names. Most incoming long distance numbers will not be displayed, rather the display may read "AT&T", "MCI", "Sprint", etc. The number will be displayed on the second ring. As in the public network, any caller can block their number from being displayed on your telephone.

NOTE: Caller I.D. is not available at the OSU airport or Regional Campuses.

 Outbound Caller I.D.

Administrative DID numbers (292, 688, and 247) will display their numbers to a Caller I.D. receiver stating "Ohio State Univ + 292-xxxx, 688-xxxx, or 247-xxxx).

Administrative Non-DID numbers (4-xxxx) will not display their phone numbers and will display an Out of Area message.

You can block your number from being delivered to a Caller I.D. receiver by dialing *67. If you prefer, you can request to block all outbound number delivery so that you would not have to dial *67. However, by doing so, inbound caller I.D. would also be blocked.

 Call Waiting

If you have call waiting service and a call waiting tone sounds while you are on a call, press talk on the handset or flash on the base. There is a short pause, then you will hear the new caller. To return to the original caller, press talk on the handset or flash on the base.
