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.
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.

FCC Part 15
Warning: Changes or modifications to this unit not expressly approved by the party
responsible for compliance could void the user's authority to operate the equipment.
The equipment has been tested and found to comply with part 15 of the FCC rules.
These 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

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 or on a circuit different from that to which
the receiver is connected.
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
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 has such a low power that it does not require testing. It

FCC, ACTA and IC Regulations
1. Product identifier and REN information
The label on the back or bottom of this equipment contains, among other things, an
identifier indicating product approval and the Ringer Equivalence Number (REN). This
information must be provided to your local telephone company upon request. For
equipment approved prior to July 23, 2001, the product identifier is preceded by the
phrase “FCC Reg No.” and the REN is listed separately. For equipment approved after
that date, the product identifier is preceded by “US” and a colon (:), and the REN is
encoded in the product identifier without a decimal point as the sixth and seventh
characters following the colon. For example, the product identifier US:AAAEQ03T123XYZ
would indicate an REN of 0.3.
The REN is used to determine how many devices you may connect to your telephone
line and still have them ring when you are called. 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.
2. Connection and use with the nationwide telephone network
The plug and jack used to connect this equipment to the premises wiring and the telephone
network must comply with the 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 this user’s manual. This equipment
may not be used with Coin Telephone Lines or 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.
3. Repair instructions
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.

may temporarily discontinue your telephone service. The telephone company is required
to notify you before interrupting service. If advance notice is not practical, you will be
notified as soon as possible. You will be given the opportunity to correct the problem
and the telephone company is required to inform you of your right to file a complaint
with the FCC. Your telephone company may make changes in its facilities, equipment,
operation, or procedures that could affect the proper functioning of this product. The
telephone company is required to notify you if such changes are planned.
5. Hearing aid compatibility

b. This feature is provided only as a convenience, and the manufacturer assumes
no responsibility for customer reliance upon the memory feature.
c. Testing the emergency telephone numbers you have stored is not recommended.
However, if you do make a call to an emergency number:
• You must remain on the line and briefly explain the reason for the call before
hanging up.
• Programming/testing of emergency numbers should be performed during
off-peak hours, such as in the early morning or late evening, when the

This telephone is registered for use in Canada.
The term “IC:” before the radio certification number only signifies that Industry Canada
technical specifications were met.
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 indicating that Industry Canada technical specifications were
met. It does not imply that Industry Canada approved the equipment.
Notice: The Ringer Equivalence Number (REN) for this terminal equipment is 0.1.
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.
Repairs to certified equipment should be made by an authorized Canadian maintenance facility designated by the Supplier. Any repairs or alterations made by the
user to this equipment, or equipment malfunctions, may give the telecommunications
company cause to request the user to disconnect the equipment.
Users should ensure for their own protection that the electrical ground connections
of the power utility, telephone lines and internal metallic water pipe system, if present,
are connected together. This precaution may be particularly important in rural areas.
Caution: Users should not attempt to make such connections themselves, but should
contact the appropriate electrical inspection authority or electrician as appropriate.
