Information about Caller ID with Call Waiting
This product has a Caller ID with Call Waiting feature that
works with services from your local telephone service provider.
Caller ID with Call Waiting lets you see the name of the
caller before you answer the telephone, even when you’re
on another call.
You may need to change your phone service to use
this feature. Contact your telephone service provider 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.
• you don’t subscribe to any Caller ID or Call Waiting services.
You can use this product with regular Caller ID service, or
you can use this product’s other features without subscribing to either Caller ID or combined Caller ID with Call
Waiting service.
There are fees for Caller ID services, but these may not be
available in all areas.
Depending on your service subscription, you may see the caller’s number, or the caller’s name and number. This product can provide information only if both you and the caller are in areas offering Caller ID
service, and if both telephone companies use compatible equipment.
The time and date are sent by the service provider along with the call
information.

About caller identification
(CID)
Telephone operating range
This cordless telephone operates
with the maximum power allowed
by the Federal Communications
Commission (FCC). Even so, this
handset and telephone base can
communicate over only a certain
distance — which can vary with
the locations of the telephone
base and handset, the weather, and
the layout of your home or office.
The Caller ID with Call Waiting
features in this telephone let
you see who’s calling before you
answer the phone, even when
you’re on another call. These features require services provided by
your local telephone company.
Contact your telephone service
provider if:
If there is a call while the
handset is out of range, it might
not ring — or if it does ring, the
call might not connect well when
you press /PHONE/ FLASH. Move
closer to the telephone base, then
press /PHONE/ FLASH to answer
the call.
• 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 try them now.
If the handset moves out of
range during a telephone conversation, there might be interference. To improve reception, move
closer to the base.
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.
If you move out of range without pressing /OFF/ CANCEL, the
telephone will be disconnected
after five seconds.
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.

Appendix
Important safety information
Especially 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 handset by radio waves, so there is a possibility that your 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 which is not controlled by a wall switch. Calls
cannot be made from the 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 TVs 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 nickelmetal hydride rechargeable batteries. Exercise care in handling batteries in order not
to create a short circuit with conductive 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-cadmium rechargeable batteries: Must be recycled or disposed of
properly. Do not dispose of them in household garbage. Do not burn or puncture.
Like other batteries of this type, if burned or punctured, they could release caustic
material which could cause injury.
The RBRC ™ Seal means that the manufacturer is voluntarily participating in an industry program
to collect and recycle nickel-cadmium rechargeable batteries when taken out of service within
the United States. These batteries may be taken to a participating local retailer of replacement
batteries or recycling center. Or you may call 1-800-8-BATTERY for locations accepting spent nickel-cadmium
batteries.
