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.
Operating range
This cordless telephone operates with the maximum power allowed by the Federal
Communications Commission (FCC). Even so, this handset and telephone base can communicate over only a certain distance - which can vary with the locations of the telephone
base and handset, the weather, and the layout of your home or office.
When the handset is out of range, the handset displays Out of range or no pwr at base.
If there is a call while the handset is out of range, it may not ring, or if it does ring, the call may not connect well when you press
/FLASH. Move closer to the telephone base, then press /FLASH to answer the call.
If the handset moves out of range during a telephone conversation, there may be interference. To
improve reception, move closer to the telephone base.
Maintenance
Taking care of your telephone
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 the telephone base near a sink, bathtub or shower.
Electrical storms
Electrical storms can sometimes cause power surges harmful to electronic equipment. For your
own safety, take 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 mild soap. Do not use excess water or
cleaning solvents of any kind.
Remember that electrical appliances can cause serious injury if used when you are wet or
standing in the water. If the telephone base should fall into the water, DO NOT RETRIEVE
IT UNTIL YOU UNPLUG THE POWER CORD AND TELEPHONE LINE CORD FROM THE
WALL. Then remove the telephone by the unplugged cords.

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.
