About caller ID
www.vtechphones.com
Basic operation
Telephone
operation
The caller ID with call waiting feature in this telephone lets you see the name and
telephone number of the caller before answering the call, even when already on a
call. These features require services provided by your local telephone company.
Contact your telephone company if:
• you have both caller ID and call waiting, but as separate services (you may need
combined service);
• you have only caller ID service, or only call waiting service; or
• you do not subscribe to any caller ID or call waiting services but wish to
subscribe.
You can use this telephone with regular caller ID service, and you can use its
other features without subscribing to either caller ID or combined caller ID with
call waiting service. There may be fees for these services, and these services
may not be available in all areas.
The caller ID features will work only if both you and the caller are in areas offering
caller ID service, and if both telephone companies use compatible equipment.

Answering system and voicemail
Basic operation
Answering system
Your telephone has both a digital answering system and voicemail indication.
Voicemail is offered by your telephone service provider (fees may apply). Your
telephone’s answering system and voicemail indication are independent features,
and each alerts you to new messages differently. For more information on the
voicemail indicators, see page 9. To listen to your voicemail, you typically dial
an access number provided by your telephone company, followed by a security
code or PIN. To listen to messages recorded on your digital answering system,
press /PLAY/STOP button on the telephone base.
If you subscribe to caller ID/call waiting service through your telephone service
provider, you can use your telephone answering system and voicemail together.
Set your answering system to answer calls at least two rings earlier than your
voicemail is set to answer. For example, set your voicemail to answer calls after
six rings and set your answering system to answer after four rings. Some voicemail
providers may program the delay before answering calls in seconds instead of
rings; in this case allow six seconds per ring when determining the appropriate
setting. By doing this, if you are on a call, or if the answering system is busy
recording a message and you receive another call, the second caller can leave
a voicemail message.
Message capacity
The answering system can record and store up to 99 messages. A message can
be up to four minutes in length. The total storage capacity for the announcement,
messages and memos is approximately 14 minutes. Messages will remain
available for replay until they are deleted.

Maintenance
Taking care of your telephone
Your cordless telephone contains sophisticated electronic parts, so it must be treated with care.
Avoid rough treatment
Place the handset down gently. Save the original packing materials to protect your telephone if you ever need to ship it.
Avoid water
Your telephone can be damaged if it gets wet. Do not use the handset outdoors in the rain, or handle it with wet hands. Do not install the
telephone base near a sink, bathtub or shower.
Electrical storms
Electrical storms can sometimes cause power surges harmful to electronic equipment. For your own safety, take caution when using electrical
appliances during storms.
Cleaning your telephone
Your telephone has a durable plastic casing that should retain its luster for many years. Clean it only with a soft cloth slightly dampened with
water or a mild soap. Do not use excess water or cleaning solvents of any kind.
Remember that electrical appliances can cause serious injury if used when you are wet or standing in the water. If the telephone base should
fall into the water, DO NOT RETRIEVE IT UNTIL YOU UNPLUG THE POWER CORD AND TELEPHONE LINE CORDS FROM THE WALL.
Then pull the unit out by the unplugged cords.

About cordless telephones
• Privacy: The same features that make a cordless telephone convenient create some limitations. Telephone calls are transmitted between
the telephone base and the cordless handset by radio waves, so there is a possibility that the cordless telephone conversations could be
intercepted by radio receiving equipment within range of the cordless handset. For this reason, you should not think of cordless telephone
conversations as being as private as those on corded telephones.
• Electrical power: The telephone base of this cordless telephone must be connected to a working electrical outlet. The electrical outlet
should not be controlled by a wall switch. Calls cannot be made from the cordless handset if the telephone base is unplugged or switched
off, or if the electrical power is interrupted.
• Potential TV interference: Some cordless telephones operate at frequencies that may cause interference to televisions and VCRs. To
minimize or prevent such interference, do not place the telephone base of the cordless telephone near or on top of a TV or VCR. If interference
is experienced, moving the cordless telephone farther away from the TV or VCR will often reduce or eliminate the interference.
• Rechargeable batteries: This product contains either nickel-cadmium or nickel-metal hydride rechargeable batteries. Exercise care in
handling batteries in order not to create a short circuit with conducting material such as rings, bracelets, and keys. The battery or conductor
may overheat and cause harm. Observe proper polarity between the battery and the battery charger.
• Nickel-metal hydride rechargeable batteries: Dispose of these batteries in a safe manner. Do not burn or puncture the battery. Like
other batteries of this type, if burned or punctured, they could release caustic material which could cause injury.
The RBRC® seal
The RBRC ® seal on the nickel-metal-hydride battery indicates that VTech Communications, Inc. is voluntarily participating
in an industry program to collect and recycle these batteries at the end of their useful lives, when taken out of service
within the United States and Canada.
The RBRC ® program provides a convenient alternative to placing used nickel-metal-hydride batteries into the trash or
municipal waste, which may be illegal in your area.
VTech’s participation in RBRC ® makes it easy for you to drop off the spent battery at local retailers participating in the
RBRC ® program or at authorized VTech product service centers. Please call 1-800-8-BATTERY TM for information on
Ni-MH battery recycling and disposal bans/restrictions in your area. VTech’s involvement in this program is part of its
commitment to protecting our environment and conserving natural resources.

This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the requirements for a Class B digital device under Part 15 of the Federal
Communications Commission (FCC) rules. These requirements are intended 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 to 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 on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
Changes or modifications to this equipment not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the user’s authority to
operate the equipment.

your telephone company or a qualified installer.
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.
If this equipment is causing harm to the telephone network, the telephone company may temporarily discontinue your telephone service.
