Cordless handsets and cordless headsets provide you with the capability to move around within your own office or adjacent offices while using your phone.
These cordless devices connect to your IP phone through a Mitel Cordless Module, which attaches to the back of the phone. There are two Cordless Module types available: Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications (DECT) and Bluetooth®. The DECT Cordless Module works with the Mitel DECT Cordless Handset and Mitel DECT Cordless Headset. The Bluetooth Module works with the Mitel Bluetooth Handset and most third-party Bluetooth headsets.
The Mitel Cordless Handsets (both DECT and Bluetooth) recharge in the handset cradle. The Mitel Cordless Headset (DECT only) rests and recharges in a headset cradle that attaches to the side of the phone.
The Cordless Devices Application (see page ) provides access to the configuration settings and information screens that apply to the cordless module and accessories.
Note: Since only one module type can be attached to the phone at any given time, you cannot, for example, use a 5310 Conference Module when a Cordless Module is attached.
CAUTION: Attempting to remove the back plate on the phone to install a Cordless Module before disconnecting the phone's power supply may damage the phone. For details on installing a Cordless Module, see the appropriate Cordless Module and Accessories Installation Guide for Mitel 5330e/5340e/5360 IP Phones included with the module and available at Mitel OnLine.

Pairing the Cordless Module and Accessories
Before using a cordless handset or headset, it must establish communication with the Cordless Module using a procedure called pairing.
Pairing a DECT Cordless Accessory with a DECT Cordless Module
To pair a DECT cordless accessory:
- Ensure that the battery of the cordless device to be paired is at least partially charged.
- Press and hold the pairing button on the back of the Cordless Module (see page ) for 5 seconds to activate phone pairing mode. The LED on the Cordless Module blinks. The Cordless Devices application opens on the phone and prompts you to place the accessory in pairing mode.
Press and hold the hookswitch on the side of the cordless handset (see page ) or headset (see page ) for 5 seconds to activate accessory pairing mode. The LED on the cordless accessory blinks. After a moment, the Cordless Devices application displays protocol, firmware, hardware, and IPEI information for the device to be paired.
Note: If the LED on the Cordless accessory does not start to blink after 10 seconds, the accessory requires charging or is still in factory battery saving mode (handset only). Place the accessory on the charger and charge. The green LED starts to flash indicating that the accessory is charging. It could take up to 60 minutes for the green LED to start flashing. Allow the accessory to fully charge, approximately 3 hours.
- Press Yes to confirm pairing. The Cordless Devices application confirms the pairing by displaying the paired device name and its battery level indicator.
- Press Close to exit.

Allow the handset to fully charge, approximately 3 hours.
For third-party Bluetooth headsets: Follow the manufacturer's instructions to place the Bluetooth headset in pairing mode. The pairing confirmation window on the IP Phone appears, displaying the product name for the device to be paired.
- Press Yes to confirm the pairing. The Cordless Devices application prompts you to enter a passcode.
- Enter a valid passcode for the Bluetooth device (default is 0000) using the keyboard on the display, and press OK.
For third-party Bluetooth headsets: An "Auto Connect" window displays. Press Yes if the phone will not be shared with other users; press No if the phone will be shared with other users and multiple headsets.

Cordless Module LED Indicators
The Cordless Module has a blue light-emitting diode (LED) that indicates the current status of the module:
Audio is active between the module and either the handset or headset.
Pairing mode is active or a firmware upgrade is in progress.
No audio is active.
Solid for several seconds
Pairing is successful.
Blinking: LED is On and Off for equal amount of time
Using a Cordless Device as a Remote Control
When not being used to talk, the buttons on a Mitel-branded cordless handset/headset can act as a remote control device to change volume and mute settings on the host IP phone. For example, in a remote hands-free conference setting, the chairman can use the volume and mute buttons on a cordless device to adjust speaker levels and mute the microphone on an IP phone that is not within his reach. HTML applications may also make use of the cordless device buttons, but functionality may differ among applications.
Using the Mute Key on a Cordless Device
When using a Mitel-branded cordless accessory, the Mute key on the cordless accessory is synchronized with the Mute key on your phone. Pressing the Mute key on either the phone or the accessory also controls the Mute function on the other device.
There is no synchronization between a third-party Bluetooth headset mute control (if one is available) and your phone Mute key. The procedure for muting a Bluetooth headset depends on the headset manufacturer. Some headsets have a mute control and some do not. You can, however, use the Mute key on your phone to mute a conversation on any type of Bluetooth headset.
Using the Volume Keys on Cordless Device
When using a Mitel-branded cordless accessory, the Volume keys on the cordless accessory are synchronized with the Volume keys on your phone. Pressing the Volume keys on either the phone or the accessory also controls the Volume function on the other device.
When using a third-party Bluetooth headset, the volume control on the headset (if one is available) is not synchronized with the Volume keys on your phone. Pressing the Volume keys on the phone does not change the headset volume.
