Connect a Phone

This article describes how to connect existing phones to the AT&T Wireless Home Phone.

  1. To place phones throughout your home, you should use a cordless phone system with multiple handsets. A standard corded phone can be used if you just need one phone in your home.

  3. Plug the phone into the Phone 1 port on the back of the Wireless Home Phone Base, using either your current phone cable or the provided phone cable.

    Note: If using a cordless phone, keep it plugged into an electrical wall outlet.
    Do not plug the Wireless Home Phone Base into a phone wall jack.

  4. The Phone 2 port can be used to connect an answering machine or additional phone.  The Phone 1 and Phone 2 ports use the same phone number.
