6. Avoid placing the telephone system
in places with extreme temperature,
direct sunlight, or other electrical
devices. Protect your phone from
moisture, dust, corrosive liquids and
fumes.
7. Slots and openings in the back or
bottom of the telephone base and
handset are provided for ventilation.
To protect them from overheating,
these openings must not be blocked
by placing the product on a soft
surface such as a bed, sofa or
rug. This product should never be
placed near or over a radiator or heat
register. This product should not be
placed in any area where proper
ventilation is not provided.
8. 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 in your home or office, consult
your dealer or local power company.
9. Do not allow anything to rest on
the power cord. Do not install this
product where the cord may be
walked on.
10. Never push objects of any kind into
this product through the slots in the
telephone base or handset because
they may touch dangerous voltage
points or create a short circuit. Never
spill liquid of any kind on the product.
11. To reduce the risk of electric shock,
do not disassemble this product,
but take it to an authorized service
facility. Opening or removing parts of
the telephone base or handset other
than specified access doors may
expose you to dangerous voltages or
other risks. Incorrect reassembling
can cause electric shock when the

associated with the closing of any
electrical circuit. The user should not
plug the phone into a power outlet,
and should not put a charged handset
into the cradle, if the phone is
located in an environment containing
concentrations of flammable or
flame-supporting gases, unless there

such an environment could create a
fire or explosion. Such environments
might include: medical use of
oxygen without adequate ventilation;
industrial gases (cleaning solvents;
gasoline vapors; etc.); a leak of
natural gas; etc.

telephone next to your ear when it is
in normal talk mode.
17.The power adapters are intended to
be correctly oriented in a vertical or
floor mount position. The prongs are
not designed to hold the plug in place
if it is plugged into a ceiling,
under-the-table or cabinet outlet.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
Battery
• CAUTION: Use Only Supplied
Battery.
• Do not dispose of the battery in a fire.

Precautions for users of implanted
cardiac pacemakers
Cardiac pacemakers (applies only to
digital cordless telephones):
Wireless Technology Research, LLC
(WTR), an independent research entity,
led a multidisciplinary evaluation of the
interference between portable wireless
telephones and implanted cardiac
pacemakers. Supported by the U.S.
Food and Drug Administration, WTR
recommends to physicians that:
Pacemaker patients
• Should keep wireless telephones at
least six inches from the pacemaker.
• Should NOT place wireless telephones
directly over the pacemaker, such as in
a breast pocket, when it is turned ON.
• Should use the wireless telephone at
the ear opposite the pacemaker.
•
•
•
WTR’s evaluation did not identify any
risk to bystanders with pacemakers
from other persons using wireless
telephones.
About cordless telephones
• Privacy: The same features that make
a cordless telephone convenient
create some limitations. Telephone
calls are transmitted between the
telephone base and the cordless
•
handset by radio waves, so there is a
possibility that the cordless telephone
conversations could be intercepted
by radio receiving equipment within
range of the cordless handset. For
this reason, you should not think of
cordless telephone conversations as
being as private as those on corded
telephones.
Electrical power: The telephone
base of this cordless telephone must
be connected to a working electrical
outlet. The electrical outlet should not
be controlled by a wall switch. Calls
cannot be made from the cordless
handset if the telephone base is
unplugged, switched off or if the
electrical power is interrupted.
Potential TV interference: Some
cordless telephones operate
at frequencies that may cause
interference to televisions and
VCRs. To minimize or prevent
such interference, do not place
the telephone base of the cordless
telephone near or on top of a TV or
VCR. If interference is experienced,
moving the cordless telephone farther
away from the TV or VCR often
reduces or eliminates the interference.
Rechargeable batteries: Exercise
care in handling batteries in order
not to create a short circuit with
conducting material such as rings,
bracelets and keys. The battery or
conductor may overheat and cause
harm. Observe proper polarity
between the battery and the battery
charger.
Nickel-metal hydride rechargeable
batteries: Dispose of these batteries
in a safe manner. Do not burn or
puncture the battery. Like other
batteries of this type, if burned or
punctured, they could release caustic
material which could cause injury.

Make sure the power
cord is securely plugged
into the telephone base.
Use a working electrical
outlet not controlled by a
wall switch.
Make sure to plug your
USB telephone adapter
into a dedicated USB
port on your computer.
Do not plug into a
multiple port USB hub
(USB splitter) that is not
powered.
In a few rare instances,
the USB port on your
computer may not have
enough power. In these
instances, try using a
USB hub with its own
external power supply.
The location of your
telephone base can
impact the performance
of your cordless phone.
For better reception,
install the telephone base
in a centralized location
within your home or
office, away from walls
or other obstructions.
In many environments,
elevating the telephone
base improves overall
performance.
If you are using a
firewall, it may prevent
access to your
nontraditional telephone
service. Contact your
service provider for more
information.

The answering
system does
not record
messages.
ECO mode
Make sure the answering
system is on. When the
answering system is on,
ANS ON should display
on the handset and the
telephone base.
This power conserving technology
reduces power consumption for optimal
battery performance. The ECO mode
activates automatically whenever
the handset is synchronized with the
telephone base.
When the answering
machine memory is full,
it does not record new
messages until some old
messages are deleted.
The handset shows ECO when the
ECO mode activates.
If you subscribe to
voicemail service,
change the number
of rings so that your
answering system
answers before your
voicemail service
answers. To determine
how many rings activate
your voicemail service,
contact your telephone
service provider.
The answering
system does
not announce
the correct day
of the week
for recorded
messages time
stamp.
Make sure you have
set the date and time.
See Configure your
telephone section.
The messages
on the
answering
system are
incomplete.
If a caller leaves a very
long message, part
of it may be lost when
the answering system
disconnects the call after
the preset recording time.
If the memory on the
answering system
becomes full during a
message, the answering
system stops recording
and disconnects the call.
I accidentally
set my LCD
language to
Spanish or
French, and I
don’t know how
to change it
back to English.
While the handset is
not in use or is on a
call, press MENU and
then enter 364# to
change the handset
