About caller ID
This product supports caller ID services provide by most local telephone
service companies. Depending on your service subscription, you may see
the caller’s number, or the caller’s name and number that are sent by the
telephone company after the first or second ring. Caller ID allows you to see
the name, number, date and time of calls.
Caller ID with call waiting lets you see the name and telephone number of the
caller before answering the telephone, even while on another call.
It may be necessary to change your telephone service to use this feature.
Contact your telephone company if:
• You have both caller ID and call waiting, but as separate services (you may
need to combine these services).
• You have only caller ID service, or only call waiting service.
• You do not subscribe to caller ID or call waiting services.
There are fees for caller ID services. In addition, services 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. The time and date are sent by the telephone company
along with the call information.
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
caller ID with call waiting service.

Call log
If you subscribe to caller ID service, information about each caller will appear

• The call log stores up to 50 entries. Each entry has up to 24 digits for the
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.
• You can review, redial, and copy an entry into the directory.
• Entries appear in reverse chronological order.

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 CONNECTING...
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
. Move closer to the telephone base, then press
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 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 a 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.
34
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 or 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.
The RBRC ® seal
The RBRC ® seal on the nickel-metal hydride battery indicates that VTech Communications, Inc. is
voluntarily participating in an industry program to collect and recycle these batteries at the end of
their useful lives, when taken out of service within the United States and Canada.
The RBRC ® program provides a convenient alternative to placing used nickel-metal hydride
batteries into the trash or municipal waste, which may be illegal in your area.
VTech’s participation in RBRC ® makes it easy for you to drop off the spent battery at local retailers
participating in the RBRC ® program or at authorized VTech product service centers. Please call
1-800-8-BATTERYTM for information on Ni-MH battery recycling and disposal bans/restrictions
in your area. VTech’s involvement in this program is part of its commitment to protecting our

FCC, ACTA and IC regulations
FCC Part 15
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the requirements for a Class B digital
device under Part 15 of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) rules. These requirements
are intended 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 off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the
interference by one or more of the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is
connected.
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
Changes or modifications to this equipment not expressly approved by the party responsible for
compliance could void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.
• 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 telephone.
To ensure safety of users, the FCC has established criteria for the amount of radio frequency energy
that can be safely absorbed by a user or bystander according to the intended usage of the product.
This product has been tested and found to comply with the FCC criteria. The handset may be safely
held against the ear of the user. The telephone base shall be installed and used such that parts of
the user’s body other than the hands are maintained at a distance of approximately 20 cm (8 inches)
or more.

the Administrative Council for Terminal Attachments (ACTA). The label on the back or bottom of this
equipment contains, among other things, a product identifier in the format US:AAAEQ##TXXXX.
This identifier must be provided to your local telephone company upon request.
The plug and jack used to connect this equipment to premises wiring and the telephone network
must comply with applicable Part 68 rules and technical requirements adopted by 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. An RJ11 jack should normally be used for connecting
to a single line and an RJ14 jack for two lines. See Installation Instructions in the user’s manual.
The Ringer Equivalence Number (REN) is used to determine how many devices you may connect
to your telephone line and still have them ring when you are called. The REN for this product is
encoded as the 6th and 7th characters following the US: in the product identifier (e.g., if ## is 03,
the REN is 0.3). In most, but not all areas, the sum of all RENs should be five (5.0) or less. For more
information, please contact your local telephone company.
This equipment may not be used with Party Lines. If you have specially wired alarm dialing
equipment connected to your telephone line, ensure the connection of this equipment does not
disable your alarm equipment. If you have questions about what will disable alarm equipment,
consult your telephone company or a qualified installer.
If this equipment is malfunctioning, it must be unplugged from the modular jack until the problem has
been corrected. Repairs to this telephone equipment can only be made by the manufacturer or its
authorized agents. For repair procedures, follow the instructions outlined under the Limited Warranty.
