YOUR CALLER FADES IN AND OUT.
You may be nearly out of range. Move closer, or
relocate the base.
YOU HEAR OTHER CALLS WHILE USING
YOUR PHONE.
* Replace the handset in the base cradle, wait a
few moments and try again.
* 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.
