not cause interference, and (2) This device must accept any interference,
including interference that may cause undesired operation of the device.
The equipment must be installed using an acceptable method of connection.
The customer should be aware that compliance with the above conditions
may not prevent degradation of service in some situations.
Repairs to certified equipment should be made by an authorized Canadian
maintenance facility designated by the supplier. Any repairs or alterations

Reasonable protection against such interference is ensured, although there
is no guarantee this will not occur in a given installation. If interference is
suspected and verified by switching this equipment on and 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

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
