    1. Select System Settings.
    2. Select System Settings (within the first System Settings).
    3. Select Cancel Register.
    4. Select the handset you want to cancel.
  3. Hold down the TGP 600 pairing button for five seconds until it blinks red.
  4. Hold down the OK button on the UDT131 handset to pair it with the new device.
  5. Leave connected for at least five minutes to allow the handset to download the firmware from the base.
  6. Confirm the ruggedized handset shows the number 1 (one) icon on the upper left.
