The digits represented by ## in the product identifier
indicate the Ringer Equivalency Number (REN) for this
equipment. 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, contact your local telephone company.
Note: This equipment may not be used on coin service
provided by the telephone company.
xi
Connection to party line service is subject to state tariffs.
Contact the state public utility commission, public
service commission or corporation commission for
information.
FCC Info
If your home has specially wired alarm equipment
connected to the telephone line, ensure the installation
of this cordless phone does not disable your alarm
equipment. If you have questions about what will
disable alarm equipment, consult your telephone
company or a qualified installer.

permanent disconnection of your telephone from your
line. The FCC requires that you connect your cordless
telephone to the nationwide telephone network through
a modular telephone jack (USOC RJ11C/RJ11W or
RJ14C/RJ14W).
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 practical and the
circumstances warrant such action, the telephone
company may temporarily disconnect service
immediately. In case of such temporary discontinuance,
the telephone company must:
• Promptly notify you of such temporary
discontinuance
• Afford you the opportunity to correct the situation
xii
• 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
facilities, equipment, operations, or procedures that
could affect the operation of the equipment. If this
happens, the telephone company will provide advance
notice in order for you to make necessary modifications
to maintain uninterrupted service.

Operation is subject to the following two conditions:
• This device may not cause harmful interference.
• This device must accept any interference received,
including interference that may cause undesired
operation.
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.
xiii
If this equipment does cause harmful interference to
radio or television reception, which can be determined
by turning the equipment on and off, the user is
encouraged to try to correct the interference with one or
more of the following measures:
FCC Info
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna (that is,
the antenna for the radio or television that is
"receiving" the interference).
• Reorient or relocate and increase the separation
between the telecommunications equipment and
the receiving antenna.
• Connect the telecommunications equipment into
an outlet on a circuit different from that to which
the receiving antenna is connected.

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,

number to call numbers in this area code.

You have to dial the 1 + 3-digit area code + 7-digit
phone number to call numbers in this area code.

example, if you store 954 in 10-digit format, when you
receive a call from that area code, the phone number
is stored in your call list with all 10 digits. The number
