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, 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 often reduces or
eliminates the interference.
• 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® 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.
