Introduction
The 20-2432 is an advanced cordless telephone that operates in the 2.4GHz
frequency range.
This manual is designed to familiarize you with the 20-2432 cordless
telephone. We strongly recommend you read the manual before using your
phone.
MENU DRIVEN DISPLAYS
The 20-2432 Handset and Base feature a user-friendly display, making it easy
to access the many features of this cordless system. The three black keys,
found directly below the LCD screen, are called soft keys. They are called
this because their functions change depending on what you're doing-making
a call, reviewing Caller ID, adding a name and number to your Phone Book,
etc.
For example, when the Handset is in the idle mode, the LCD displays:
In this case, the 3 soft keys access REDIAL, MENU and MEMORY.
When the Handset is active, the LCD displays:
In this case, the 3 soft keys access VOLUME, HOLD and MUTE.

Connecting to the telephone lines
Your 2-Line 20-2432 will work fine even if you only have one telephone line.
We recommend connecting the modular telephone cord to the jack labeled
LINE 1 / L1 + L2, located on the bottom of the Base Unit. Here are steps for
connecting 2 lines:
If you have 2 Lines coming out of a Single Wall Jack:
Connect a 4-wire (RJ-14) modular phone cord between the wall jack and the
phone jack labeled L1 / L1 + L2.
If you have 2 Lines, each coming out of Separate Wall Jacks:
Connect a modular phone cord from the wall jack you want to designate as
your LINE 1, to the LINE 1 / L1 + L2 jack on the bottom of the Base Unit. Next,
connect a phone cord from the remaining wall jack to the LINE 2 jack on the
Base Unit.
Data Port
Your 2-Line 20-2432 has a Data Port on the back of the Base Unit. This port
provides an easy way to connect your fax machine, laptop computer, modem
or other telephone device for direct access to LINE 2.
The Data Port only provides access to Line 2, so you must have an active line
connected to the LINE 2 jack on the bottom of the Base Unit. Connect a
modular phone cord from the Data Port (look for the small door marked DATA
on the back of the Base Unit) to your fax, laptop, etc.
NOTE: While the Data Port is in use, accidental use of Line 2 by a parallel
phone, your 20-2432, or a Call Waiting ID alert may interrupt the data
transmission.

Call History (Caller ID)
Due to regional incompatibilities, Caller ID information may not be

intentionally block their name and phone number from being sent.
Caller ID - Call Waiting ID
Your 20-2432 is capable of displaying the name and/or number of the party
calling before you answer the phone (Caller ID). It is also capable of
displaying Caller ID information in conjunction with a Call Waiting alert
signal (Call Waiting Caller ID). With Call Waiting Caller ID, the Caller ID
data is displayed so you can decide whether to answer the incoming call, or
continue with your current conversation.
As new Caller ID/Call Waiting ID are received, your Handset and Base
displays will alert to the new, Caller ID records, for example:
OR
The number of new calls displayed on the Handset and Base may not be
the same. If, for example, you answer a call on the Handset, it will not count
the Caller ID information for that call as new. However, the Base display will
consider it a new call, and add it to the NEW CALLS total.
After you review all new Caller ID records, the NEW CALLS status will be

Additional Information
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.
38
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.
2. Connection and use with the nationwide telephone network

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

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.
Additional Information
Notice:
The Ringer Equivalence Number (REN) for this terminal equipment is 0.0.
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 equipment, or equipment malfunctions, may give
the telecommunications company cause to request the user to disconnect the
equipment.
