company.
8. 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.
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. If service or repair work is

Your VT2498 Cordless Handset is equipped with a 2.5mm Headset Jack for
use with an optional accessory Headset for hands-free operation. If you choose
to use the Headset option, you must obtain an optional accessory Headset,
which is compatible with the VT2498.
To purchase a Headset, call VTECH Customer Service at 1-800-595-9511.
Once you have a compatible 2.5mm Headset, locate the Headset Jack on the
VT2498 Handset. Connect the plug on the Headset cord to the jack on the
cordless Handset. The plug should fit securely. Do not force the connection.
NOTE :
Whenever a compatible Headset is
connected to the cordless Handset, the
microphone on the Handset will be
muted. This is done to limit the effect of
background noise.
Many compatible Headsets have a
reversible, monaural design. You can
wear your Headset on either ear, leaving
one ear free for room conversation.
Additional Information

The VT2498 is also equipped with a
detachable belt clip. Align the pins on
the inside edge of the clip with the
notches on the sides of the Handset.

it must be treated with care.
Avoid rough treatment
Place the Handset down gently. Save the original packing materials to protect
your telephone if you ever need to ship it.
Avoid water
Your telephone can be damaged if it gets wet. Do not use the Handset outdoors
in the rain, or handle it with wet hands. Do not install your Base Unit near a
sink, bathtub or shower.
Electrical storms
Electrical storms can sometimes cause power surges harmful to electronic
equipment.
For your own safety, use caution when using electrical appliances during storms.
Cleaning your telephone
Your telephone has a durable plastic casing that should retain its luster for
many years. Clean it only with a soft cloth slightly dampened with water or
a mild soap. Do not use excess water or cleaning solvents of any kind.

are wet or standing in water. If your Base Unit should fall into water, DO NOT
RETRIEVE IT UNTILYOU UNPLUG THE POWER CORD AND TELEPHONE LINE
CORDS FROM THE WALL. Then pull the unit out by the unplugged cords.
In Case Of Difficulty
If you have difficulty operating your phone, the suggestions below should solve
the problem. If you still have difficulty after trying these suggestions, call VTECH
Communications at 1-800-595-9511. In Canada, call VTECH Electronics at
1-800-267-7377.
The Phone Doesn't Work At All
• Make sure the Power Cord is plugged in.
• Make sure the telephone line cord is plugged firmly into the Base Unit and
the telephone wall jack.
• Make sure the batteries are properly charged. If BATTERY LOW is displayed,
the battery pack needs charging.
No Dial Tone
• First check all the suggestions above.
• If you still don't hear a dial tone, disconnect the Base Unit from the telephone
jack and connect a different phone. If there is no dial tone on that phone
either, the problem is in your wiring or local service. Contact your local
telephone company.
You Get Noise, Static, Or A Weak Signal Even When You're Near
The Base Unit
• Household appliances plugged into the same circuit as the Base Unit can
sometimes cause interference. Try moving the appliance or the Base Unit
to another outlet.
Additional Information
You Get Noise, Static, Or A Weak Signal When You're Away From
The Base Unit
• You may be out of range. Either move closer to the Base, or relocate the
Base Unit.
• The layout of your home may be limiting the range. Try moving the Base
Unit to another position.
The Handset Does Not Ring When You Receive A Call
• Make sure you have the Handset ringer activated. To set the ringer, see
Handset Ringer Style.
• Make sure the telephone line cord is plugged firmly into the Base Unit and
the telephone jack. Make sure the power cord is plugged in.
• You may be too far from the Base Unit.
• You may have too many extension phones on your telephone line to allow
all of them to ring. Try unplugging some of the other phones.

3/6/03, 9:33 AM
In Case Of Difficulty
You Hear Other Calls While Using Your Phone

or local service. Call your local telephone company.
You Hear Noise In The Handset, And None Of The Keys Or Buttons Work
• Make sure the power cord is plugged in.

FCC and ACTA Information
If this equipment was approved for connection to the telephone network prior
to July 23, 2001, it complies with Part 68 of the Federal Communications
Commission (FCC) rules. If the equipment was approved after that date, it
complies with the Part 68 rules and with Technical Requirements for
Connection of Equipment to the Telephone Network adopted by the
Administrative Council for Terminal Attachments (ACTA). We are required to

Additional Information
1. Product identifier and REN information
The label on the back or bottom of this equipment contains, among other
things, an identifier indicating product approval and the Ringer Equivalence
Number (REN). This information must be provided to your local telephone

is listed separately. For equipment approved after that date, the product
identifier is preceded by “US” and a colon (:), and the REN is encoded in
the product identifier without a decimal point as the sixth and seventh
characters following the colon. For example, the product identifier
US:AAAEQ03T123XYZ would indicate an REN of 0.3.
The REN is used to determine how many devices you may connect to your
telephone line and still have them ring when you are called. In most, but not
all areas, the sum of all RENs should be five (5.0) or less. You may want
to contact your local telephone company for more information.

contact the appropriate electrical inspection authority, or electrician, as
appropriate.
