Company
On the bottom of this equipment is a label
indicating, among other information, the US
number and Ringer Equivalence Number (REN)
for the equipment. You must, upon request,

company.
The REN is useful in determining the number of
devices you may connect to your telephone line
and still have all of these devices ring when your
telephone number is called. In most (but not all)
areas, the sum of the RENs of all devices
connected to one line should not exceed 5. To be
certain of the number of devices you may connect
to your line as determined by the REN, you
should contact your local telephone company.
A plug and jack used to connect this equipment to
the premises wiring and telephone network must
comply with the applicable FCC Part 68 rules and
requirements adopted by the ACTA. A compliant
telephone cord and modular plug is provided with

off, the user is encouraged to try to correct the
interference by one or more of the following
measures: Reorient the radio/television
receiver’s antenna, relocate the equipment with
respect to the receiver, plug the equipment and
receiver into separate circuit outlets. The user
may also wish to consult a qualified radio/
television technician for additional suggestions.
This equipment has been fully tested and
complies with all limits for Class B computing
devices pursuant to part 15 FCC Rules and
Regulations. This device complies with RSS-210
of Industry Canada. Operation is subject to the
following two conditions: (1) This device may not
cause interference, and (2) This device must
accept any interference, including interference
that may cause undesired operation of the device.
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC
Rules. Operation is subject to the following two
conditions:

10.7.1 Ring Delay
This is the number of rings before the answering
machine answers and starts playing your greeting
message. You can set the answering machine to
start playing your greeting message after 1 to 7
rings or Toll saver. The default ring delay is 5.

Tip
Toll saver mode can save you the cost of a longdistance call when you check your messages
remotely. If there are new messages in your
answering machine, the outgoing message will
start playing after 3 rings. If there are no new
messages, the outgoing message will be played
after 5 rings. Hence, if you want to check if you
have any messages without incurring call charges,
you can hang up the call after the 4th ring.
10.7.2 Remote Control Access
If you are far away from home and want to check
the messages on your answering machine, you can
make use of the remote access feature to check
your messages using another phone. Once you dial
your home number from any other phone and
enter the remote access code*, you will be able to
obtain the messages on your answering machine.
The keypad on the phone you use to dial acts like
the functions on your answering machine where
you can play or delete messages, turn your
answering machine on or off, etc.
Note
This feature is deactivated by default.
* Remote access code (which is the same as your
Master PIN code) prevents any unauthorised
