If the automatic new handset registration does not work by putting the handset in the base cradle, a manual registration process is available.
This is for the Accessory Handset model CL80113 for use with the following Base units: CL81113, CL81213, CL81313, CL82113, CL82213, CL82263, CL82313, CL82363, CL82413, CL82463, CL83113, CL83213, CL83263, CL83313, CL83363, CL83413, CL83463.
