Introduction
The GIGAPHONE is an advanced cordless telephone that operates in the 2.4GHz
frequency range. Your GIGAPHONE is capable of supporting up to a maximum

on a call (2 Handsets and the Base Speakerphone), or two extensions can be
conferenced on a call, while two other extensions can be talking internally, using
the Intercom feature.
This manual is designed to familiarize you with the GIGAPHONE cordless
telephone. We strongly recommend you read the manual before using your
phone.
To order additional system Handsets (model# VT 2420), battery
packs, or headsets, call VTech Communications Inc at 1-800-5959511.

Maintenance
Taking Care Of Your Telephone
Your GIGAPHONE 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 your Base Unit near a
sink, bathtub or shower.
Electrical storms
Electrical storms can sometimes cause power surges harmful to electronic
equipment.
For your own safety, use 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 a mild
soap. Do not use excess water or cleaning solvents of any kind.
43
Additional Information
Remember that electrical appliances can cause serious injury if used when
you are wet or standing in water. If your Base Unit should fall into water,
DO NOT RETRIEVE IT UNTIL YOU UNPLUG THE POWER CORD AND
TELEPHONE LINE CORDS FROM THE WALL. Then pull the unit out by
the unplugged cords.
In Case Of Difficulty
If you have difficulty operating your phone, the suggestions below should solve
the problem. If you still have difficulty after trying these suggestions, call
VTECH Communications at 1-800-595-9511. In Canada, call VTECH Electronics
at 1-800-267-7377.
The Phone Doesn't Work At All
•
•
•
Make sure the Power Cord is plugged in.
Make sure the telephone line cord is plugged firmly into the Base Unit
and the telephone wall jack.
Make sure the batteries are properly charged. If the 'LOW BATTERY'
message is shown, the battery pack needs charging.
No Dial Tone
•
•
First check all the suggestions above.
If you still don't hear a dial tone, disconnect the Base Unit from the telephone
jack and connect a different phone. If there is no dial tone on that phone
either, the problem is in your wiring or local service. Contact your local
telephone company.
You Get Noise, Static, Or A Weak Signal Even When You're Near
The Base Unit
•
Household appliances plugged into the same circuit as the Base Unit can
sometimes cause interference. Try moving the appliance or the Base Unit

all of them to ring. Try unplugging some of the other phones.
44
In Case Of Difficulty
You Hear Other Calls While Using Your Phone
•
Disconnect your Base Unit from the telephone jack, and plug in a regular
telephone. If you still hear other calls, the problem is probably in your
wiring or local service. Call your local telephone company.
You Hear Noise In The Handset, And None Of The Keys Or Buttons
Work

Your telephone company may discontinue your service if your equipment causes
harm to the telephone network. They will notify you in advance of disconnection,
if possible. During notification, you will be informed of your right to file a
complaint with the FCC.
Occasionally, your telephone company may make changes in its facilities,
equipment, operation, or procedures that could affect the operation of your
equipment. If so, you will be given advance notice of the change to give you
an opportunity to maintain uninterrupted service.
The Base Unit contains no user serviceable parts. The Handset contains a user
replaceable battery pack.
If it is determined that your telephone equipment is malfunctioning, the FCC
requires that it not be used and that it be unplugged from the modular jack until
the problem has been corrected. Repairs to this telephone equipment can only

FCC and IC. This means your Handset and Base Unit can communicate only
over a certain distance - which will depend on the location of the Base Unit and
Handset, weather, and the construction and layout of your home or office.
