transmission that combines the best of 2.4GHz and 900MHz technologies,
providing enhanced performance over standard cordless telephones.
About Caller Identification (Caller ID)
Your t 2453 has a caller ID(CID) with call waiting feature that works with
service from your local phone service provider. caller ID with call waiting lets you
see who’s calling before you answer the phone, even when you’re on another call.
You may need to change your phone service to use this feature. Contact your
phone service provider if:
•
You have both caller ID and call waiting, but as separate services
(you may need combined service)
•
You have only caller ID service, or only caller waiting service.
•
You don’t subscribe to any caller ID or call waiting services.
You can use this product with regular caller ID service, and you can use this
product’s other features without subscribing to either caller ID or combined
caller ID with call waiting service.
There are fees for caller ID services, and they may not be available in all areas.
This product can provide information only if both you and the caller are in areas
offering caller ID service, and if both telephone companies use compatible
equipment.

About Announcements
•
You can record two different announcements — one for normal answering
and one for when you’ve set the system to play the announcement only.
•
Use normal answering when you want the system to record callers’
messages. Use Announce Only when you want to give information to
callers without accepting messages.
•
If you choose not to record an announcement, the system answers with a
pre-recorded announcement.
•
The normal answering pre-recorded announcement says: “Hello. I’m unable to
answer your call right now. Please leave your name, number and a
message after the tone.” The Announce Only pre-recorded
announcement says: “Hello, I’m unable to answer your call right now. Please
call again. Thank you.”
•
By setting Announce Only to ON or OFF, you decide which announcement your
callers will hear when the system answers a call (the system comes set for
normal answering, with Announce Only turned off). See Set Announce
Only, located in the Feature Summary chart later in this section, to change
your announcement selection.

Battery Care and Maintenance
•
A fully charged battery provides an average talk time of about six hours.
•
The battery needs charging when:
— A new battery is installed in the handset.
— The phone beeps twice every five seconds.
— The screen displays BATTERY LOW and the low battery icon.
•
Place the handset in the base so the CHARGING light turns on.The battery
is typically fully charged in 15 hours.
•
You can keep the battery fully charged by returning the handset to the base
after each use.
•
If you repeatedly get a low battery indicator, even after charging overnight,
the battery should be replaced.
CAUTION: To reduce the risk of fire or injury to persons or damage
to the telephone, read and follow these instructions carefully:
Charge the battery provided with or identified for use with this
product only in accordance with the instructions and
limitations specified in the User’s Manual.
Replacing the Handset Battery
1. Remove the battery compartment cover on the handset by pressing on the
indentation and sliding the cover downward.
2. Lift out the old Battery and disconnect.
3. Align the two holes in the new battery’s plug with the socket pins, and snap
the plug into place. Snap the battery in the compartment, as described in
Installation, on page 6.
4. Replace the cover by sliding it up into place.
5. The new battery must be charged before using the phone. Place the handset in the base and allow it to charge for at least 15 hours the first charge.
The telephone might operate before that, but for best performance, let the

Your cordless telephone contains sophisticated electronic parts, so 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 electric 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.
Additional Information
Remember that electrical appliances can cause serious injury if used when
you are wet or standing in water. If your base unit should fall into water,
DO NOT RETRIEVE IT UNTIL YOU UNPLUG THE POWER CORD AND
TELEPHONE LINE CORDS FROM THE WALL. Then pull the unit out by the
unplugged cords.

in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio
frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions,
may cause harmful interference to radio communications.However, there is no
guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does
cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by
turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try and correct the interference by
one or more of the following measures:
•
Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.

the sum of all RENs should be five (5.0) or less. For more information, please
contact your local telephone company.

IC (Industry Canada)
This telephone is registered for use in Canada.
The term “IC:” before the radio certification number only signifies that Industry
Canada technical specifications were met.
Notice:
The Ringer Equivalence Number (REN) for this terminal equipment is 0.1B. The REN
assigned to each terminal equipment provides an indication of the maximum number of
terminals allowed to be connected to a telephone interface. The termination on an
interface may consist of any combination of devices subject only to the requirement that the

facility designated by the supplier. Any repairs or alterations made by the user to this
equipment, or equipment malfunctions, may give the telecommunications company
cause to request the user to disconnect the equipment.
