Additional Information
Should you experience trouble with this telephone equipment, please contact:
VTech Communications Inc. CUSTOMER SERVICE at 1-800-595-9511. In Canada,
call VTech Telecommunications Canada Ltd. at 1-800-267-7377 for repair/warranty
information. The telephone company may ask you to disconnect this equipment from the

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 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 and
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.
FCC Part 68 and ACTA
If this equipment was approved for connection to the telephone network prior to July 23,
2001, it complies with Part 68 of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) rules. If
the equipment was approved after that date, it complies with the Part 68 rules and with
Technical Requirements for Connection of Equipment to the Telephone Network adopted
by the Administrative Council for Terminal Attachments (ACTA). We are required to provide
you with the following information.
22
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. You may want to contact your local telephone company for more information.
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 the 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.
4. Rights of the telephone company
If this equipment is causing harm to the telephone network, the telephone company 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

Additional Information
a. We recommend that you also write the telephone number on the directory card, so that
you can still dial the emergency number manually if the memory dialing feature doesn’t
work.
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 emergency services tend to be
less busy.
IC (Industry Canada)
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.
Before installing this equipment, users should ensure that it is permissible to be connected
to the facilities of the local telecommunications company. The equipment must also be
installed using an acceptable method of connection. The customer should be aware that
compliance with the above conditions may not prevent degradation of services in some
situations.
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
24
FCC, ACTA and IC Regulations
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.
