The FCC Wants You To Know
This equipment complies with Part 68 of the FCC rules and the requirements adopted by the ACTA. On the bottom of this equipment is a label
that contains, among other information, a product identifier in the format
US:AAAEQ##TXXXX. If requested, this number must be provided to the
telephone company.
Should you experience trouble with this equipment, please contact Uniden customer service at 800-297-1023. If the equipment is causing harm
to the telephone network, the telephone company may request that you
disconnect the equipment until the problem is resolved.
An applicable Universal Service Order Codes (USOC) certification for
the jacks used in this equipment is provided (i.e., RJ11C) in the packaging with each piece of approved terminal equipment. A plug and jack
used to connect this equipment to the premises wiring and telephone
network must comply with the applicable FCC Part 68 rules and requirements adopted by the ACTA. A compliant telephone cord and modular
plug is provided with this product. It is designed to be connected to a
compatible modular jack that is also compliant. See installation instructions for details.
NOTICE: According to telephone company reports, AC electrical surges,
typically resulting from lightning strikes, are very destructive to telephone
equipment connected to AC power sources. To minimize damage from
these types of surges, a surge arrestor is recommended.
Changes or modifications to this product not expressly approved by Uniden, or operation of this product in any way other than as detailed by the
owner’s manual, could void your authority to operate this product.
The REN is used to determine the number of devices that may be connected to a telephone line. Excessive RENs on a telephone line may
result in the devices not ringing in response to an incoming call. In most
but not all areas, the sum of RENs should not exceed five (5.0). To be
certain of the number of devices that may be connected to a line, as determined by the total RENs, contact the telephone provider. For products
approved after July 23, 2001, the REN for this product is part of the product identifier that has the format US:AAAEQ##TXXXX. The digits represented by ## are the REN without a decimal point (e.g., 03 is a REN of
0.3). For earlier products, the REN is separately shown on the label.
This device complies with part 15 of the FCC rules. Operation is subject
to the following two conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful
interference, and (2) This device must accept any interference received,
including interference that may cause undesired operation. Privacy of
communications may not be ensured when using this phone.
To insure the safety of users, the FCC has established criteria for the
amount of radio frequency energy various products may produce depending on their intended usage. This product has been tested and
found to comply with the FCC’s exposure criteria. For body worn operation, the FCC RF exposure guidelines were also met when used with the
Uniden accessories supplied or designed for this product. Use of other
accessories may not ensure compliance with FCC RF exposure guidelines and should be avoided.
If this equipment causes harm to the telephone network, the telephone
company will notify you in advance that temporary discontinuance of service may be required. But if advance notice isn’t practical, the telephone
company will notify the customer as soon as possible. Also, you will be
advised of your right to file a complaint with the FCC if you believe it is
necessary.

Radio Interference
dicating that Industry Canada technical specifications were met. It does
not imply that Industry Canada approved the equipment.
Radio interference may occasionally cause buzzing and humming in
your cordless handset, or clicking noises in the base. This interference
is caused by external sources such as TV, refrigerator, vacuum cleaner,
fluorescent lighting, or electrical storm. Your unit is NOT DEFECTIVE. If
these noises continue and are too distracting, please check around your
home to see what appliances may be causing the problem. In addition,
we recommend that the base not be plugged into a circuit that also powers a major appliance because of the potential for interference. Be certain that the antenna on the unit is fully extended when needed. In the
unlikely event that you consistently hear other voices or distracting transmissions on your phone, you may be receiving radio signals from another cordless telephone or other source of interference. If you cannot eliminate this type of interference, you need to change to a different channel.
NOTICE: The Ringer Equivalence Number (REN) for this terminal equipment is marked on the equipment itself. 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 sum of the Ringer Equivalence Numbers of all
the devices does not exceed five.
RADIO EQUIPMENT
The term “IC:” before the radio certification number only signifies that Industry Canada technical specifications were met.
Finally, it should be noted that some cordless telephones operate at frequencies that may cause interference to nearby TVs and VCRs. To minimize or prevent such interference, the base of the cordless telephone
should not be placed near or on top of a TV or VCR. If interference is
experienced, moving the cordless telephone farther away from the TV or
VCR will often reduce or eliminate the interference.
Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) this device may
not cause interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference,
including interference that may cause undesired operation of the device.
“Privacy of communications may not be ensured when using this telephone.”
Cordless Telephone Privacy
Cordless telephones are radio devices. Communications between the
handset and base of your cordless telephone are accomplished by
means of radio waves which are broadcast over the open airways. Because of the inherent physical properties of radio waves, your communications can be received by radio receiving devices other than your own
cordless telephone unit. Consequently, any communications using your
cordless telephone may not be private.
I.C. Notice
Terminal Equipment
NOTICE: This equipment meets the applicable Industry Canada Terminal
Equipment Technical Specifications. This is confirmed by the registration
number. The abbreviation, IC, before the registration number signifies
that registration was performed based on a Declaration of Conformity in-
