I purchased the unit from a private party and the original owners manual was not available. Having the ability to download it was extremely helpful and clarified operating the equipment immensely. This is a complicated unit and without the manual I would not have been able to maximize it's potential. Thank you.
Being a user of older radios of many kinds, preferring them over more modern rigs, this manual was invaluable in the programming of my two. I now know for certain what the assorted buttons functions are, and am very grateful to have found this excellent site. Many thanks for your assistance, Tony.
5 star quality on these downloadable manuals. Easy to read and all the information is there. A must when doing a custom install or needing to service your precious old school electronics.

Setting up your phone
Installing your DECT 221/225
Connect the output plug of the base adapter to the adapter socket on the back of the base unit and the base adapter to the wall mains supply. A beep indicates that the phone is properly plugged (DECT 225 only). Connect the telephone line cord to the phone socket on the back of the base unit and to the wall phone socket.
If you have bought a multi-pack product, each extra handset comes with a charger and a charger adapter. Connect the output plug of the charger adapter to the adapter socket on the bottom of the charger. Connect the charger adapter to the wall mains supply. Place 2 rechargeable NiMH AAA batteries (included), in correct polarities, into the battery compartment on the handset. Note: the warranty shall not apply to the batteries and any other components within lifetime and wear.
Slide the battery door firmly into place. Place the handset on the base unit or the charger and let the batteries continuously charge for 24 hours before using. A beep indicates that the handset is properly placed on the base unit or the charger. The handset may take some time to power up and it may get warm during the initial charge. This is normal.
Charging the handset
An empty battery icon indicates the batteries need recharging. Place the handset on the base unit or the charger to recharge the batteries. A handset reaching a very low battery voltage level will go into sleep mode, displaying lOW BATT on the screen. Get into the habit of putting the handset on the base unit or the charger to charge when it is not in use to ensure the handset is always fully charged.
