About Caller Identification (Caller ID)
This product has a Caller ID with Call Waiting feature that works with
service from your local phone service provider.
Caller ID with Call Waiting lets you see who’s calling before you answer the phone,
even when you’re on another call.
You may need to change your phone service to use this feature. Contact your
phone 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, and 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, and they may not be available in all areas.
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.

USING THE TELEZAPPER® FEATURE
General Information
The TeleZapper feature in your VT 2568 is a patented device that helps
you eliminate many of those annoying telemarketing calls.
• The TeleZapper feature in your VT 2568 covers all the telephones
and answering machines connected to that line in your home or
office.
• When you or your answering machine picks up the phone, the
TeleZapper emits a special tone that fools the computer into thinking
your number is disconnected.
• Instead of connecting you to a salesperson, the computer drops
the call and stores your number as disconnected in its database.
• As your number is eliminated from more and more lists, those
annoying computer-generated calls just about stop altogether.
• The TeleZapper won’t interfere with manually dialed calls, or with
answering machines, Caller ID or Call Waiting.
• Once you’ve activated the TeleZapper feature in your VT 2568,
keep in mind that if you answer your telephone and there’s no one
there, the odds are that you just “zapped” a telemarketer. After a
few weeks, you’ll notice that you are receiving fewer and fewer of
these calls.
• The TeleZapper even works with your answering machine to “zap”
telemarketers when you are away or when you prefer not to answer
the phone. When your answering machine picks up a call for you,
the TeleZapper emits its special tone to “zap” the telemarketer.
We recommend that you re-record your message and delay speaking
for a few seconds to allow time for the TeleZapper tone prior to the
start of your recorded message.
Programming Instructions
The TeleZapper feature in your VT 2568 has two levels of privacy to help
“zap” computer dialed telemarketing calls. Your VT 2568 is shipped with
the BASIC level of privacy activated, which will help with the majority of
telemarketing calls. At this level, the TeleZapper feature will emit a single
tone, which is the first of three (3) tones for the disconnected signal. The
ADVANCED level of privacy will switch the TeleZapper feature to all three
tones of the disconnected signal and will “zap” even more telemarketing
calls. Here are instructions to switch from BASIC to ADVANCED privacy
or to disable the feature.
1. Press PROG/CHAN, then press until the screen displays TELEZAPPER: ,
and the corrent setting.
2. Press SELECT. The current option is flashing.
3. Use
or to choose BAS, ADV or OFF.
4. Press SELECT to activate the selected option.
NOTE:If you are dialing in Pulse (rotary) mode from another phone sharing
the same line, your TeleZapper feature must be set to either
BASIC or OFF.

USING THE TELEZAPPER® FEATURE
TeleZapper Q&A:
Q. How does the TeleZapper feature work?
A. The TeleZapper uses the technology of telemarketers’ automatic dialing
equipment against them. When you or your answering machine picks up a
call, the TeleZapper emits a special tone that “fools” the computer into
thinking your number is disconnected. Instead of connecting you to a salesperson,
the computer stores your number as disconnected in its database. Over
time, as your number is removed from more and more databases, you’ll
see a dramatic decrease in the number of annoying telemarketing calls
you receive.
Q. How do I know when I’ve “zapped” a telemarketer?
A. If you answer your telephone and there’s no one there, the odds are that
you just “zapped” a telemarketer. Quite often you will see the caller ID from
such a call is “unavailable.” After a few weeks, you will notice that you
receive fewer and fewer of these calls.
Q. Do I need one for each telephone or telephone jack in my home or
office?
A. No. One VT 2568 with the TeleZapper feature covers ALL telephones
and answering machines connected to the same line (telephone number).
If you have two lines, you need an additional unit for your other line.
Q. Will it interfere with my computer or fax machine?
A. No. The TeleZapper does not interfere with the operation of your computer,
your fax machine or other telecommunications or electronic equipment.
It plays the tone briefly when the line is answered, then goes to “sleep”
waiting for the next call.
Q. Will it interfere with my answering machine?
A. No. This is the best way to use your TeleZapper feature. Let your answering
machine pick up the line, the TeleZapper feature “zaps” the telemarketer,
and you were not bothered at all! You will need to delay your message for
a few seconds to allow the tone to play. A caller who wishes to leave a
message on your answering machine will hear a short tone followed by
your recording.
Q. I have voicemail from the telephone company. Will it work with this?
A. Yes and No. Your telephone must go “off-hook” for the TeleZapper to
9
USING THE TELEZAPPER® FEATURE
emit its tone. As long as you pick up a call, the phone goes “off-hook” and
the TeleZapper emits its tone to “zap” telemarketers. If, instead, the telephone
company “answers” your calls through voicemail, your phone does not go
“off-hook” and the TeleZapper cannot emit its tone. The TeleZapper will not
interfere with the normal operation of your voicemail.
Q. Will the TeleZapper “zap” calls from anyone other than telemarketers?
A. The TeleZapper is designed to “zap” calls made by predictive dialer
computers by doing two things: first, by disconnecting predictive-dialed
calls before you can be connected to a live telemarketer, and, second, by
deleting your phone number from telemarketing computer lists. Whether
the TeleZapper will affect computer-dialed calls from other sources depends
on the type of computer equipment and how that equipment is being used.
Therefore, it may also “zap” calls from businesses and organizations that
use predictive dialing systems – not just telemarketers. Many companies
and organizations do not rely entirely on computerized calling systems to
reach you. Most have secondary means in place to contact or notify people
with important information. Furthermore, these organizations can always
contact you by simply dialing your phone number manually. Manually
dialed calls will not be zapped. As such, you can contact businesses and
organizations to determine if they use predictive dialers and, if so, to ask
that your phone number be manually dialed or that alternate means be
used in order to contact you.

TELEPHONE OPERATION
Operating Range
This cordless telephone operates within the maximum power allowed by
the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Even so, this handset
and base can communicate over only a certain distance — which can vary
with the locations of the base and handset, the weather, and the construction
of your home or office. For best performance, keep the base antenna fully
upright.
If you receive a call while you are out of range, the handset might not
ring — or if it does ring, the call might not connect when you press PHONE.
Move closer to the base, then press PHONE to answer the call.
If you move out of range during a phone conversation, you might
hear noise or interference. To improve reception, move closer to the base.
If you move out of range without pressing OFF, your phone will be left
“off the hook.” To hang up properly, walk back into range, periodically
pressing OFF.

About Announcements
•
•
•
•
•
You can record up to two different announcements — one for normal
answering and one for when you’ve set the system to play the announcement
only.
Use normal answering when you want the system to record callers’
messages. Use Announce Only when you want to give information to
callers without accepting messages.
If you choose not to record an announcement, the system answers with
a pre-recorded announcement.
The normal answering pre-recorded announcement says: “Hello. I’m unable to
answer your call right now. Please leave your name, number and a
message after the tone.” The Announce Only pre-recorded announcement
says: “Hello, I’m unable to answer your call right now. Please call again.
Thank you.”
By setting Announce Only to ON or OFF, you decide which announcement
your callers will hear when the system answers a call (the system comes
set for normal answering , with Announce Only turned off). See “Set
Announce Only” , located in the Feature Summary chart later in this section, to change your announcement selection.

•
•
•
•
•
This battery should remain charged up to six days with the ringer turned
on and up to 10 days with the ringer off. A fully charged battery
provides an average talk time of about 10 hours.
The battery pack needs charging when:
— A new battery is installed in the handset.
— The phone beeps twice every five seconds.
— The screen displays NEEDS RECHARGING and the low battery icon.
Place the handset in the base so the CHARGING light turns on.The
battery pack is typically fully charged in 10 hours.
You can keep the battery fully charged by returning the handset to the
base after each use.
If you repeatedly get a low battery indicator, even after charging overnight,
the battery should be replaced.
CAUTION: To reduce the risk of fire or injury to persons
or damage to the telephone, read and follow these instructions
carefully:
Charge the battery provided with or identified for use with this product

with the wires in the lower left corner, along the bottom of the battery
pack.
Replace the cover by sliding it up into place.
The new battery pack must be charged before using the phone. Place
the handset in the base and allow it to charge for at least 12 hours
the first charge. The telephone might operate before that, but for best
performance, let the battery pack charge fully.

IN CASE OF DIFFICULTY
If the phone doesn’t work at all, check these items first:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•

and the modular jack.
Make sure the base antenna is fully upright.
If the handset does not beep when you press PHONE , the battery
might need charging.
Make sure the battery pack is installed correctly.
If you have dial pulse (rotary) service on your phone line, make sure
the dial mode is set to dial pulse (see INSTALLATION).

experience interference, move away from the microwave.
If the above suggestions don’t solve the problem, try
re-initializing the handset and base:
1 Disconnect the power to the base.
2 Remove the handset battery pack.
3 Wait a few minutes.
4 Connect the power to the base.
5 Insert the handset battery pack.
6 Put the handset in the base to re-initialize.

above for re-initializing the handset and base.
If the phone does not ring when you receive a call:
•
•
•
•
•
Make sure the handset ringer is on.
Make sure the telephone line cord is connected firmly to the base
and the telephone jack.
Make sure the AC adapter is plugged firmly into an outlet not controlled
by a wall switch.
You might be too far from the base; move closer.

allow all of them to ring. Try unplugging some of them.
33
IN CASE OF DIFFICULTY
If you hear noise or interference when using the phone:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Make sure the base antenna is fully upright.
You may be out of range. Move closer to the base.
Press and release PROG/CHAN to change to another of the 30 channels
available.If noise is exceptionally loud, move closer to the base before
changing channels.
Household appliances plugged into the same circuit as the base can
sometimes cause interference. Try moving the appliance or the base
to another outlet.
Using the handset near household appliances (microwaves,
computers,television, stereos, etc.) can sometimes cause interference.
Move away from appliances while using the handset.
The layout of your home or office might be limiting the operating range.
Try moving the base to another location, preferably on an upper floor.
If the buttons don’t work, try placing the handset in the base for at
least 15 seconds.
If you hear other calls while using your phone:
• Press PROG/CHAN to change to another channel.
•
Disconnect the base from the modular jack and plug in a corded telephone.
If you still hear other calls, the problem is probably in your wiring or local
service. Call your local telephone service company.
If you lose a call after changing channels:
You were probably almost out of range. Move closer to the base before
changing channels. Before placing another call, set the handset in the
base for at least 15 seconds.
If you are unable to operate special telephone services or
other equipment requiring touch tone signals:
If you have dial pulse (rotary) service, follow the directions under
“Temporary Tone Dialing” in the TELEPHONE OPERATION section of
this manual.

rings.
If CL appears in the Message Window:
You need to reset the clock.
If the system does not respond to commands from a remote
touch tone phone:
•
•
•
•
Make sure you are calling from a touch tone phone. When you dial a
number, you should hear tones. If you hear clicks instead, the phone is
not a touch tone telephone.
