User’s Guide
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits
for a Class B digital device, pursuant to 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 to correct the
interference by one or more of the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna (that is, the antenna
for radio or television that is “receiving” the interference).
• Reorient or relocate and increase the separation between the
telecommunications equipment and receiving antenna.
• Connect the telecommunications equipment into an outlet on
a circuit different from that to which the receiving antenna
is connected.
If these measures do not eliminate the interference, please
consult your dealer or an experienced radio/television technician
for additional suggestions. Also, the Federal Communications
Commission has prepared a helpful booklet, “How To Identify and
Resolve Radio/TV Interference Problems.” This booklet is available
from the U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, D.C. 20402.

1.Notification to the Local Telephone Company
Licensing
Licensed under US Patent 6,427,009.
4.If the line cord was previously
connected, re-attach it to the unit
and check your memory locations.
NOTE: If the low battery icon appears in the display, you need to
replace the batteries. It is important that you replace the batteries
as soon as possible in order to maintain Caller ID operation.
IMPORTANT: If you are not going to use the telephone for
more than 30 days, remove the batteries because they may
leak and damage the unit.
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.
Notes • This equipment may not be used on coin service provided by the
telephone company.
• Party lines are subject to state tariffs, and therefore, you may
not be able to use your own telephone equipment if you are on a
party line. Check with your local telephone company.
• Notice must be given to the telephone company upon permanent
disconnection of your telephone from your line.
•If your home has specially wired alarm equipment connected to
the telephone line, ensure the installation of this product does not
disable your alarm equipment. If you have questions about what
will disable alarm equipment, consult your telephone company or
a qualified installer.

2.Rights of the Telephone Company
Should your equipment cause trouble on your line which may
harm the telephone network, the telephone company shall, where
practicable, notify you that temporary discontinuance of service
may be required. Where prior notice is not practicable and the
circumstances warrant such action, the telephone company may
temporarily discontinue service immediately. In case of such
temporary discontinuance, the telephone company must: (1)
promptly notify you of such temporary discontinuance; (2) afford
you the opportunity to correct the situation; and (3) inform you
of your right to bring a complaint to the Commission pursuant
to procedures set forth in Subpart E of Part 68, FCC Rules and
Regulations.
The telephone company may make changes in its communications
facilities, equipment, operations or procedures where such action
is required in the operation of its business and not inconsistent
with FCC Rules and Regulations. If these changes are expected to
affect the use or performance of your telephone equipment, the
telephone company must give you adequate notice, in writing, to
allow you to maintain uninterrupted service.
