FCC and Interference Information
This equipment complies with Parts 15 and 68 of the FCC rules and
the requirements adopted by the Administrative Council for Terminal
Attachments (ACTA).
A plug and jack used to connect this equipment to the premises wiring
and telephone network must comply with 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.
Notification of the Local Telephone Company
On the bottom of this equipment is a label that contains, among other
information, a product identifier in the form US:AAAEQ##TXXXX. You
must, upon request, provide this information to your telephone
company.
The digits represented by ## in the product identifier indicate the
Ringer Equivalency Number (REN) for this equipment. The REN is
useful in determining the number of devices you may connect to your
telephone line and still have all of these devices ring when your
telephone number is called. In most (but not all) areas, the sum of the
RENs of all devices connected to one line should not exceed 5. To be
certain of the number of devices you may connect to your line as
determined by the REN, contact your local telephone company.
Notes:
• This equipment may not be used on coin service provided by the
telephone company.
• Connection to party line service is subject to state tariffs. Contact
the state public utility commission, public service commission or
corporation commission for information.
• If your home has specially wired alarm equipment connected to
the telephone line, ensure the installation of this cordless phone
does not disable your alarm equipment. If you have questions
4
1043B05a.book Page 5 Thursday, September 25, 2003 2:54 PM
about what will disable alarm equipment, consult your telephone
company or a qualified installer.
• Notice must be given to the telephone company upon permanent
disconnection of your telephone from your line.
• The FCC requires that you connect your cordless telephone to the
nationwide telephone network through a modular telephone jack
(USOC RJ11C/RJ11W or RJ14C/RJ14W).
Rights of the Telephone Company
Should your equipment cause trouble on your line which may harm the
telephone network, the telephone company shall, where practicable,
notify you that temporary discontinuance of service may be required.
Where prior notice is not practical and the circumstances warrant such
action, the telephone company may temporarily disconnect service
immediately. In case of such temporary discontinuance, the telephone
company must:
1. Promptly notify you of such temporary discontinuance;
2. Afford you the opportunity to correct the situation;
3. Inform you of your right to bring a complaint to the Commission
pursuant to procedures set forth in Subpart E of Part 68, FCC
Rules and Regulations.
The telephone company may make changes in its facilities, equipment,
operations, or procedures that could affect the operation of the
equipment. If this happens, the telephone company will provide
advance notice in order for you to make necessary modifications to
maintain uninterrupted service.
Interference Information
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.
2. This device must accept any interference received, including
interference that may cause undesired operation.
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for
a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These
5
1043B05a.book Page 6 Thursday, September 25, 2003 2:54 PM
limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful
interference 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 on and
off, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference with one or
more of the following measures:
Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna (that is, the antenna for the
radio or television that is “receiving” the interference).
Reorient or relocate and increase the separation between the
telecommunications equipment and the receiving antenna.
Connect the telecommunications equipment into an outlet on a circuit
different from that to which the receiving antenna is connected.
If these measures do not eliminate the interference, please consult
your dealer or an experienced radio/television technician for additional
suggestions. Also, the Federal Communications Commission has
prepared a helpful booklet, “How to Identify and Resolve Radio/TV
Interference Problems.” This booklet is available from the U.S.
Government Printing Office, Washington, D.C. 20402. Please specify
stock number 004-000-00345-4 when ordering copies.
The FCC requires this product to be serviced only by Motorola or its
authorized service agents. Changes or modifications not expressly
approved by Motorola could void not only the user's authority to
operate the equipment, but also the limited warranty.
Hearing Aid Compatibility
This telephone system meets the FCC standards for hearing aid
compatibility.

Storing Area Codes for Caller ID
Setting Up Your Phone
Note: This section applies only if you subscribe to
caller ID service from your local phone company.
26
You can store up to 5 area codes to make it easy to
dial numbers from your list of caller ID calls. Each
area code can be:
• 7-digit format
You do not have to dial the area code to call numbers
in this area code.
• 10-digit format
You have to dial the 3-digit area code + 7-digit phone
number to call numbers in this area code.
• 11-digit format
You have to dial the 1 + 3-digit area code + 7-digit
phone number to call numbers in this area code.
For example, if you store 954 in 10-digit format, when
you receive a call from that area code, the phone
number is stored in your call list with all 10 digits. The
number will then be in the correct format for you to
dial directly from the call list without any reformatting.
