similar surface. This product should not be placed in a built-in
installation unless proper ventilation is provided.

6.

This product should be operated only from the type of power
source indicated on the marking label. If you are not sure of the
type of power supply to your home, consult your dealer or local
power company.

7.

Do not allow anything to rest on the power cord. Do not locate
this product where the cord will be abused by persons walking
on it.

8.

Do not overload wall outlets and extension cords as this can
result in the risk of fire or electric shock.

9.

Never push objects of any kind into this product through cabinet
slots as they may touch dangerous voltage points or short out
parts that could result in a risk of fire or electric shock. Never
spill liquid of any kind on the product.

10. To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not disassemble this

product, but take it to a qualified serviceman when service or

14. Never install or modify telephone wiring during a lightning storm.

15. Never install telephone jacks in wet locations unless the jack is

specifically designed for wet locations.

16. Use caution when installing or modifying telephone lines to

IF YOUR PRODUCT UTILIZES BATTERIES, THE FOLLOWING
ADDITIONAL PRECAUTIONS SHOULD BE OBSERVED:

1.

Use only the type and size battery(ies) specified in the user
manual.

2.

Do not dispose of the battery(ies) in fire. They may explode.
Check with local codes for possible special disposal instructions.

3.

Do not open or mutilate the battery(ies). Released electrolyte is
corrosive and may cause damage to the eyes or skin. It may be
toxic if swallowed.

4.

Exercise care in handling battery(ies) in order not to short out the
battery(ies) with conducting materials such as rings, bracelets, and
keys. The battery(ies) or conductor may overheat and cause burns.

5.

Do not attempt to recharge the battery(ies) provided with or
identified for use with this product that are not intended to be
charged. The battery(ies) may leak corrosive electrolyte or explode.

6.

Do not attempt to rejuvenate the battery(ies) provided with or
identified for use with this product by heating them. Sudden
release of the battery(ies) electrolyte may occur causing burns
or irritation to eyes or skin.

7.

When replacing battery(ies), all batteries should be replaced at
the same time. Mixing fresh and discharged batteries could
increase internal cell pressure and rupture the discharged
battery(ies). (Applies to products employing more than one
separately replaceable primary battery.)

8.

When inserting battery(ies) into this product, the proper polarity
or direction must be observed. Reverse insertion of battery(ies)
can cause charging, and that may result in leakage or explosion.

9.

Remove battery(ies) from this product if storing over 30 days
because the battery(ies) could leak and damage the product.

10. Discard "dead" battery(ies) as soon as possible since "dead"

batteries are more likely to leak in a product.

11. Do not store this product, or the battery(ies) provided with or

identified for use with this product, in high-temperature areas.
Batteries that are stored in a freezer or refrigerator for the
purpose of extending shelf life should be protected from
condensation during storage and defrosting. Batteries should be
stabilized at room temperature prior to use after cold storage.

12. If your product uses rechargeable battery(ies), charge the

battery(ies) only in accordance with the instructions and
limitation specified in the User Manual.

EQUIPMENT APPROVAL INFORMATION
Your telephone equipment is approved for connection to the Public
Switched Telephone Network and is in compliance with parts 15 and

Notification to the Local Telephone Company

On the bottom of this equipment is a label indicating, among other
information, the US number and Ringer Equivalence Number (REN)
for the equipment. You must, upon request, provide this

The REN is useful in determining the number of devices you may
connect to your telephone line and still have all of these devices
ring when your telephone number is called. In most (but not all)
areas, the sum of the RENs of all devices connected to one line
should not exceed 5. To be certain of the number of devices you
may connect to your line as determined by the REN, you should
contact your local telephone company.

A plug and jack used to connect this equipment to the premises
wiring and telephone network must comply with the applicable
FCC Part 68 rules and requirements adopted by the ACTA. A
compliant telephone cord and modular plug is provided with this
product. It is designed to be connected to a compatible modular
jack that is also compliant. See installation instructions for details.

Notes
• This equipment may not be used on coin service provided by

the telephone company.

not be able to use your own telephone equipment if you are on
a party line. Check with your local telephone company.

• Notice must be given to the telephone company upon

permanent disconnection of your telephone from your line.

• If your home has specially wired alarm equipment connected to

the telephone line, ensure the installation of this product does
not disable your alarm equipment. If you have questions about
what will disable alarm equipment, consult your telephone
company or a qualified installer.

Rights of the Telephone Company

Should your equipment cause trouble on your line which may harm
the telephone network, the telephone company shall, where
practicable, notify you that temporary discontinuance of service may
be required. Where prior notice is not practicable and the
circumstances warrant such action, the telephone company may
temporarily discontinue service immediately. In case of such
temporary discontinuance, the telephone company must: (1) promptly
notify you of such temporary discontinuance; (2) afford you the
opportunity to correct the situation; and (3) inform you of your right to
bring a complaint to the Commission pursuant to procedures set forth
in Subpart E of Part 68, FCC Rules and Regulations.
The telephone company may make changes in its communications
facilities, equipment, operations or procedures where such action is
required in the operation of its business and not inconsistent with FCC

use or performance of your telephone equipment, the telephone
company must give you adequate notice, in writing, to allow you to

TELEPHONE JACK REQUIREMENTS
To use this phone, you need an RJ11C
type modular telephone jack, which
might look like the one pictured here,
installed in your home. If you don’t
have a modular jack, call your local
phone company to find out how to
get one installed.

INSTALLATION NOTE:

  Some cordless telephones

operate at frequencies that may cause interference to
nearby TVs, microwave ovens, and VCRs. To minimize
or prevent such interference, the base of the cordless
telephone should not be placed near or on top of a
TV, microwave ovens, or VCR. If such interference
continues, move the cordless telephone farther away
from these appliances.

DIGITAL SECURITY SYSTEM
Your cordless phone uses a digital security system to
provide protection against false ringing, unauthorized
access, and charges to your phone line.

When you place the handset in the base, the unit verifies
its security code. After a power outage or battery
replacement, you should place the handset in the base for
about 20 seconds to reset the code.
