(Cobra Model 213-013-9-001).

A2. For Base Unit: 9Volt (Alkaline non-

rechargeable) Battery.

B. Do not dispose of battery pack in a fire. The cells

may explode. Check with local codes for possible
disposal instruction.

C. Since released electrolyte is corrosive and may

cause damage to eyes or skin and may be toxic if
swallowed:

C1. Do not open or mutilate battery pack.

C2. Always replace the entire battery pack rather

than reusing one or more cells.

C3. Do not expose batteries to heat or flame.

D. Exercise care in handling the battery pack in

order not to “short” the battery contacts with
conducting materials such as rings, bracelets,
and keys. The battery or conductor may
overheat and cause burns.

provided with or identified for use with this
product by heating it. Sudden release of the
battery electrolyte may occur, causing burns
or irritation to eyes and skin.

F3. Remove the 9V battery from this product if

the product will not be used for a long
period of time (several months or more),
since the battery could leak inside the
product during this time.

F4. Discard “dead” batteries as soon as

possible, since “dead” batteries are more
likely to leak in a product.

F5. Do not store this product or the battery

provided with or identified for use with this
product in high temperature areas. Batteries
which are stored in a freezer or refrigerator
for the purpose of extending shelf life
should be protected from condensation

To Store A Number  
Longer Than 16 Digits 

For telephone banking or alternate long
distance service, you may need to program a
number that is longer than 16 digits. To do so,
you will need to divide the number between
two different memory locations. Example:
Store an alternate long distance access
number in location 1 and your personal
indentification number for that service in
location 2. Please call your Cobra Consultant
at 1-773-889-3087 for additional guidance.

To Dial A Number Stored 
In Memory

1. Press TALK to get a dial tone.

2. Press MEMORY.

3. Press the keypad button (1-0) that you
assigned to the  number you wish to call,
and your Cobra Intenna will dial the
number automatically.

NOTE: For numbers longer than 16
digits, stored separtely, follow steps 
1, 2, and 3 above, then press MEMORY
and keypad for second number.

To Replace Or Change A
Number Stored In Memory 

Simply repeat the steps under “To Store A
Number In Memory”, found on the facing
page. The new number will automatically
replace the previous number stored. 

NOTE: Numbers stored in memory may be
lost when you disconnect from AC power, if
the 9V battery runs down completely or is not
installed. Follow the steps under “To Store A
Number In Memory” if you need to program
the numbers again.

Cobra

®

Memory dialing lets you store and dial 10
commonly-called telephone numbers
automatically. No more fumbling with the
phone book, guessing at numbers or
accidentally misdialing the people you call
most.

To Store A
Number In Memory 

1. With the handset turned off (TALK
button off), press and release the
MEMORY button.

2. Dial the phone number you wish to
store, including area  code if different
from your own, up to 16 digits long. 

3. Press and release the MEMORY
button again.

4. Press any keypad button between 1
and 0, which will assign the phone
number to that memory location. You
will hear 2 double beeps, which means
that the number was properly stored. If
you hear nothing, press and release
MEMORY and repeat the steps again.
Follow these same steps for every
number you wish to store, assigning
each to a keypad number, 1 through 0.

Creating A Directory

As you are programming the memory
bank, you will want to keep track of
whose number you are assigning to
each location. When finished, you may
indicate who is assigned to each
number by filling in the directory
adhesive label included. This provides a
quick and easy reference. You may
place this directory in any convenient
location on handset or base.

USING THE BUILT-IN
INTERCOM/PAGING SYSTEM 

Call Dad to dinner, monitor the baby while you
do laundry or keep an ear out to make sure
that the children aren’t hurt. These options,
along with many others, are at your fingertips
with your Cobra Intenna because it doubles
as a two-way intercom/paging system
between the base and the handset—and
outside calls will still come through! If you
should misplace the handset, simply activate
the pager and follow the signal until you
locate it.

If the phone rings while you are at the base
and the handset is in the cradle, you may
determine if you want to answer the call or
not.

1. Let the system answer and listen to the

caller’s voice over the speaker. If you wish
to take the call, lift the handset.

To Retrieve A Memo
From The Base

Press and release the PLAY button, just
the same as if you had received a
telephone message.

Your new Cobra Intenna Cordless Phone
Answering System is equipped with an all-
digital answering system built right in. That
means there are no cassette tapes to
malfunction, break or replace. It allows a full
20 minutes recording time (most tapes
allow only 15 minutes per side) and permits
each caller 2 full minutes to leave you a
message (most messages average only a
minute each).

Getting Ready

1. Make sure digital display is on. If
display is blank, press
ANSWER/ON/OFF button and display
will light 
2. Set the NUMBER RINGS selector,
located on the side of the base:

2 position

: System answers on the

2nd ring

5 position

: System answers on the

5th ring

T/S (toll-saver)

: System answers on

5th ring if there are no  messages
waiting and on the 2nd ring if there
are. This is useful if you will be calling
in to retrieve messages long
distance or from a pay phone. If the
phone rings 3 times, you  know you

Your new Cobra Intenna Cordless Telephone
Answering System comes equipped with Voice
Mailboxes (similar to those found in many
businesses) that let callers select and direct
their message to the entire household or just
one of the 4 individual ”Mailboxes”. This feature
is especially useful in households where
teenagers are present, where one or more
family members receives numerous calls or for
families with home-based businesses. A great
idea for roommates, too! The advantages, of
course, are that callers can leave private
messages for specific individuals and other
members of the household won’t have to
listen to, speed through or accidentally erase
messages that aren’t for them. 

To Program Your Cobra
System As A Mailbox

1. Each individual or business is assigned a
Mailbox number, either 1,2, 3 or 4. 
2. Change your announcement to one that
will instruct callers on how to access a
specific Mailbox. All messages will be
recorded in the General Mailbox, if not
directed by the caller to another Mailbox. 
3. To record your Outgoing Message,
please see directions on page 7. An
example of a general Mailbox Message
might be:

“Thank you for calling the Smith 
house. Sorry we can’t take your call
right now, but if you would like to
leave a message for (Home
Business Name) please press
(Star) then 1; To leave a message
for Susan, press    then 2; To leave
a message for Mr. Smith, press
then 3; To leave a message for Mrs.
Smith, press    then 4. To leave a
message to the entire family, wait
for the beep; you will have 2
minutes to speak”.

After the caller presses     then a number 
(1, 2, 3 or 4) they will be connected to the
Mailbox indicated and will hear the Mailbox
number, then the individual Outgoing
Message if one has been recorded. It is not
necessary to use all 4 available Mailboxes.
However, they are always accessible and
may be used at any time. 

To Record Individual Mailbox
Outgoing Messages

1. Press the personal Mailbox button 
(1, 2, 3 or 4.) 
2. Press “OGM” (Outgoing Message)
button. VOICE HELP will direct you to
record a personal message after the
beep and then play it back for you. 
3. Mailbox number will be announced
even if no individual OGM is recorded.

To Access General Mailbox
Messages

General messages may be accessed by
anyone, either from the base or the remote
handset, simply by pressing the PLAY
button on the base or REMOTE button on
the handset, just as you would if the
Mailbox feature were not being used.

To Access Individual Mailbox

reflected in the LED window, but a
flashing red light under each Mailbox
button indicates that there are one or
more messages in that Mailbox.
2. To access your Mailbox messages,
press and release your MAILBOX
button (1,2, 3 or 4) on the base, then

• ILLUMINATED KEYPAD

When the phone rings, you lift the handset or
touch any button, the keypad automatically lights
up, making it easy to read and use, even in the
darkest room or late at night.

• ELECTRONIC HOLD 

Save time and steps in houses with more than
one telephone. After you’ve put a call on hold
your Intenna automatically releases when you,
or someone else, picks up another handset on
the same line. No need to come back and turn it
off, because it turns itself off automatically.
Combine this with the Intercom feature for
added convenience. (See p. 14).

• LAST NUMBER REDIAL

When the number you’ve dialed is busy, just get
a dial tone and press and release the Redial
button and your Cobra Intenna will automatically
redial that number. 

• VOICE HELP

Not sure what to do next?The digital VOICE
HELP feature guides you through every process
to help you get the most use out of your Cobra
Intenna. For help from a remote location, press #
and VOICE HELP will list your menu options for
you. From Cordless Handset, press REMOTE
button, then 

#

for VOICE HELP menu.

• LED DISPLAY WINDOW

Large, easy-to-read digits display the number of
messages stored, alert you to a power failure or
malfunction and helps guide you through various
procedures.

• FLASH BUTTON

Press and release the FLASH button to briefly
interrupt the phone line and access some of the
advanced options like “Call Waiting” or “Three
Way Calling” that may be offered by your
telephone company at an extra charge. 

• HANDSET VOLUME CONTROL

You can change the volume of your caller’s voice
from low to high and vice versa by pressing the
volume control 

Up/Dn

button located on the

side of your handset.

Aside from the features that have already
been outlined, your Cobra Intenna Cordless
Telephone Answering System is easier to
program and use than ever before because
many of the features you want most are built
right in—You don’t have to do a thing! 

• BUILT-IN ANTENNA

There’s no unsightly antenna to extend,
nothing to get bent or broken or possibly
even cause physical harm, because
antennas are built into the handset and base.
That, along with our Clear Call® PLUS
Compander Noise Reduction system which
minimizes background noise and
interference for optimum audio performance,
makes the Intenna quality comparable to a
standard corded phone.

• SCRAMBLED SIGNALS

Although you may not realize it, other people
with cordless phones, baby monitors or
scanners may be listening in on your
conversations. This is especially disturbing
when discussing personal information such
as credit card numbers, vacation plans, etc.
over the phone. Cobra’s Private Call™ Voice
Scrambling system eliminates that worry
forever!

• 10-CHANNEL RECEPTION 

Your Cobra Intenna automatically scans
through 10 channels every time you pick up
the handset, to offer you the clearest, noise-
free connection available. Should
interference occur during a conversation,
simply press and release the CHANNEL
button on the handset until you reach a clear
channel.

• DIGITAL SECURITY

Your Cobra Intenna is manufactured with
65,000 randomly generated security codes. 

• HEARING AID
COMPATIBLE (HAC)

Your Cobra Intenna handset is specially
designed to be compatible with standard
hearing aid systems. 

• OUT-OF-RANGE SIGNAL

When you press the TALK button and
immediately hear three beeps, you know
your handset is too far away from the base
to work properly. Move closer to the base
and try your call again.

• ANNOUNCE ONLY
OUTGOING MESSAGE

Simply slide the ICM Recording switch
located on the side of the base to the
ANNC ONLY position and your Cobra  quits
taking incoming messages and just plays
your outgoing message. (You will want to
change your outgoing message to reflect
that). Upon switching, the VOICE HELP
prompts you to record an outgoing
message if none is recorded. The LED
display will read          (Announce Only), to
let you know no incoming messages can be
received.To receive incoming messages
again, slide the ICM Recording switch back
to “2 Min”.

• BASE ELECTRONIC
VOLUME CONTROL

Gradually move from low to high volume
and vice-versa by pressing either end of the
VOL button on the base.

• PULSE/TONE SWITCH

Your Cobra Intenna may be set to either
PULSE or TONE, (depending upon your
phone system) by flipping the switch
located on the back of the base. Mixed
PULSE and TONE dialing may be used
(when needed to access certain long-
distance or computerized banking services)
by setting the base switch to PULSE and
pressing the      button on the handset to
temporarily switch to TONE. Hanging up
resets to PULSE.

• RINGER SWITCH

You’re taking a nap, watching your favorite
TV show or just got the baby to sleep and
don’t want to be disturbed. Temporarily turn
off the ringer by moving the switch on the
back of the base into the off position. The
answering system remains on, taking
messages for later.

To Dispose Of Your Battery

The rechargeable nickel-cadmium (NiCad)
battery in this product must be recycled or
disposed of properly in compliance with all
applicable laws. Certain states or
municipalities require recycling and have
established collection programs. Please
contact your local waste removal authority
for instruction or return to Cobra for
recycling. Wrap carefully and mail postage
prepaid to:

COBRA ELECTRONICS

CORPORATION

6500 W. Cortland Street

Chicago, Il. 60707

Attn: Battery Recycling

Do not put batteries into fire or
expose to high heat. They may
explode.

“Contains Nickel-Cadmium
rechargeable batteries. Must be
recycled or disposed of properly”.

Your Cobra Intenna  Cordless Telephone
Answering System comes complete with a
rechargeable nickel-cadmium battery
already in the handset. You will need to
charge the battery by plugging in the base,
placing the handset in the base and letting it
charge overnight (at least 12 hours).

Battery Recharging

There are three things that can happen to
indicate that your handset battery needs
recharging. When one of these three things
occurs, you will need to return the handset
to the base and recharge for at least 12
continuous hours.

1. The TALK Button on the handset
flashes.

2. A 2-beep warning sounds while you
are using the phone. This indicates that
you have just a few minutes of power
left to complete your conversation
before the phone disconnects.

3. The handset beeps at 30 second
intervals for five minutes when it has
been away from the base too long.
After five minutes, it will not flash or
beep, nor will you be able to get a dial
tone. Return the handset to the base
for recharging.

NOTE: To prevent your batteries from
running out of power, Cobra suggests that
you leave the handset in the base as much
as possible when not in use. The CHARGE
indicator will remain on as long as the
handset is in the base, even after the
batteries are fully recharged. This will not
damage the batteries.

Replacing The Battery

Your phone uses a Ni-Cad battery which can
lose its ability to take a charge after several
hundred hours of use. If you notice a
shorter talk time after charging, your battery
may need replacing.
If you have recharged the battery for 12
hours or more and the handset does not
work when the TALK button is pressed, you
may need to replace the battery. To order a
new battery, call Cobra toll-free at 1-773-
889-3087, or remove it from the handset
and take it to a local hardware store or
home center store to be certain that you
are getting the proper replacement battery. 

To Remove/Replace
The Handset Battery 

1. To remove the battery door, press and
slide downward.
2. Carefully disconnect the battery pack
and dispose of it properly. See
BATTERY DISPOSAL below.
3. To replace, connect the new battery
and replace the door.  Return the
handset to the base and charge the
battery  overnight (at least 12 hours).

To Clean The
Charging Contacts

The two metal charging contacts on both
the handset and the base should be
cleaned regularly with a soft, dry cloth for
optimum recharging performance.
