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 this product.
It is designed to be connected to a compatible modular jack that is also compliant. See

line jack
Installation
Digital Security System
Your cordless phone uses a digital security system to protect against false ringing,
unauthorized access, and charges to your phone line.
INSTALLATION NOTE: Some cordless telephones operate at frequencies
that may cause or receive interference with nearby TVs, microwave
ovens, and VCRs. To minimize or prevent such interference, the base of the
cordless telephone should not be placed near or on top of a TV, microwave
ovens, or VCR. If such interference continues, move the cordless telephone
farther away from these appliances.
Certain other communications devices may also use the 1.9 GHz frequency
for communication, and, if not properly set, these devices may interfere
with each other and/or your new telephone. If you are concerned with
interference, please refer to the owner’s manual for these devices on how
to properly set channels to avoid interference. Typical devices that may
use the 1.9 GHz frequency for communication include wireless audio/video
senders, wireless computer networks, multi-handset cordless telephone
systems, and some long-range cordless telephone systems.
Important Installation Guidelines
• Avoid sources of noise and heat, such as motors, fluorescent lighting, microwave
ovens, heating appliances and direct sunlight.
• Avoid areas of excessive dust, moisture and low temperature.
• Avoid other cordless telephones or personal computers.
• Never install telephone wiring during a lightning storm.
• Never install telephone jacks in wet locations unless the jack is specifically
designed for wet locations.
• Never touch non-insulated telephone wires or terminals, unless the telephone line
has been disconnected at the network interface.
• Use caution when installing or modifying telephone lines.
