Rewiring of telephone line for cable/VoIP service users
If you have changed to cable/VoIP service through a modem/router/terminal
adapter to establish telephone connection, the existing telephone jacks in your
home may no longer work. Your cable/VoIP service provider uses a seperate
cable connecting from the main line to the modem installed in your home.
To allow all existing telephone jacks to work, rewiring of the telephone line (as
indicated by the dotted line in the illustration below) may be needed. Rewiring
requires professional installation (fees may apply). Contact your cable/VoIP
service provider for more information.

offering caller ID service and if both telephone service provider use compatible
equipment. The time and date are sent by the telephone service provider along
with the call information.
The caller ID information may not be available for every incoming call. The callers
may intentionally block their names and /or telephone numbers.
You can use this product with regular caller ID service, or you can use this
product’s other features without subscribing to either caller ID or combined

phone number and 15 characters for the name. If the phone number has more
than 15 digits, only the last 15 digits appear. If the name has more than 15
characters, only the first 15 characters are shown and saved in the call log.
• Call log entries are shared by all system handsets. Any modifications made on
one handset apply to all.
• You can review, redial, and copy an entry into the directory.
• Entries appear in reverse chronological order.
• When the call log is full, the oldest entry is deleted to make room for new
incoming call information.
• XX MISSED CALLS shows when there are new call log entries that have not
been reviewed.
• CALL LOG EMPTY shows when you access the call log without records.

telephone number in your directory, the screen displays the stored name of the
directory entry.
For example, if Linda Jones calls, her name appears as Linda if this is how you
entered into your directory.
The number shown in the call log is in the format sent by the telephone service
provider. The telephone service provider usually delivers ten-digit telephone
numbers (area code plus telephone number). If the last seven digits of the
incoming telephone number does not match a number in your directory, the
name appears as it is delivered by the telephone service provider.

provider is indicating that it has new voicemail for you. To listen to your
voicemail, you typically dial an access number provided by your telephone
service provider, followed by security code or PIN.
Some service providers bundle or combine multiple services like voicemail and
call waiting, so you may not be aware that you have voicemail. To check what
services you have and how to access them, contact your telephone service provider.
To use your voicemail service rather than your answering system, turn off
your answering system. To use your answering system rather than your
voicemail service, contact your telephone service provider to deactivate
your voicemail service.
Using the answering machine and voicemail together
You can also use your telephone answering system and voicemail together by
setting your built-in answering system to answer before voicemail answers as
described below. To learn how to program your voicemail settings, contact your
telephone service provider. Then, if you are on a call, or if the answering system
is busy recording a message and you receive another call, the second caller can
leave a voicemail message.
Set your answering system to answer calls at least two rings earlier than your
voicemail is set to answer. For example, if your voicemail answers after six rings,
set your answering system to answer after four rings. Some voicemail providers
may program the delay before answering calls in seconds instead of rings. In this
case, allow six seconds per ring when determining the appropriate setting.

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 might not ring, or if it does ring, the call might 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 might be interference.
To improve reception, move closer to the telephone base.

Maintenance
Taking care of your telephone
•
Your 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 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 sometime cause power surge harmful to electronic equipment. For your own
safety, take 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 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 water. If the telephone base should fall into water, DO NOT RETRIEVE IT UNTIL YOU UNPLUG
THE POWER CORD AND TELEPHONE LINE CORDS FROM THE WALL. Then pull the telephone
out by the unplugged cords.

Appendix
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.
