My handset says "line in use". How do I clear it?
Make sure that the base unit has power. "Line in use" is displayed if the line is currently active on a call. If you have multiple handsets, it is possible that one of them is turned on so check the rest of the handset and turn it off.
Check if all connections are secure and plugged properly from the wall and from the back of the base unit. If none of the handsets are in use, try to unplug the base unit from the power outlet for 5 seconds then replug and test the line by calling you line using your cell phone or a different phone line.
My handset displays, "Please lift up and try again".
You attempted to dial from the cordless handset while located in the charger. Lift the handset out of the charger and try again. If the same error message appears on the handset after lifting the handset from the cradle, reset the handset by removing the battery from the phone then re-install them again.
My caller ID information is displayed late.
Disconnect the AC adaptor and telephone line cord from the base unit. Remove the batteries from the handset and leave to dry for at least 3 days. After the handset/base unit are completely dry, reconnect the AC adaptor and telephone line cord. Insert the batteries and charge fully before use. If the unit does not work properly, contact an authorized service center.
CAUTION: To avoid permanent damage, do not use a microwave oven to speed up the drying process.
My caller ID information is displayed late.
Depending on your service provider or telephone company, the unit may display or announce the caller's information at the second ring or later. Move closer to the base unit.
Missed calls are appearing on my screen. Why?
If a call is not answered on a specific handset, the unit treats it as a missed call. The display shows "Missed call". This lets you know if you should view the caller list to see who called while you were away. You can clear the message from the handset by viewing your caller list.
I want to talk to 2 external numbers on my one line phone. What is "three way calling" and how do I perform this?
