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.
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.
When the handset is out of range, the handset displays OUT OF RANGE OR NO PWR AT BASE.
If there is a call while the handset is out of range, it may not ring, or if it does ring, the call may
not connect well when you press
/ FLASH. Move closer to the telephone base, then press
/FLASH to answer the call.
If the handset moves out of range during a telephone conversation, there may be interference.
To improve reception, move closer to the telephone base.
Maintenance
Taking care of your telephone
Your cordless telephone contains sophisticated electronic parts, so it must be treated with care.
Avoid rough treatment
Place the handset down gently. Save the original packing materials to protect your telephone if
you ever need to ship it.
Avoid water
Your telephone can be damaged if it gets wet. Do not use the handset outdoors in the rain, or
handle it with wet hands. Do not install the telephone base near a sink, bathtub or shower.
Electrical storms
Electrical storms can sometimes cause power surges harmful to electronic equipment. For your
own safety, take caution when using electrical appliances during storms.
Cleaning your telephone
Your telephone has a durable plastic casing that should retain its luster for many years. Clean
it only with a soft cloth slightly dampened with water or mild soap. Do not use excess water or
cleaning solvents of any kind.
Remember that electrical appliances can cause serious injury if used when you are wet or
standing in the water. If the telephone base should fall into the water, DO NOT RETRIEVE
IT UNTIL YOU UNPLUG THE POWER CORD AND TELEPHONE LINE CORD FROM THE
WALL. Then remove the telephone by the unplugged cords.

Stimulateurs cardiaques implantés dans l’organisme
Les simulateurs cardiaques (s’applique uniquement aux téléphones numériques sans fil) :
L’organisme ‘Wireless Technology Research, LLC (WTR)’, une firme de recherche
indépendante, a mené une évaluation pluridisciplinaire des interférences entre les téléphones
sans fil portatifs et les stimulateurs cardiaques implantés dans l’organisme. Appuyée par
l’Administration des aliments et drogues (FDA) des États-Unis, la firme WTR recommande aux
médecins :
Avis aux détenteurs de stimulateurs cardiaques
• Ils doivent tenir le téléphone sans fil à une distance d’au moins six pouces du stimulateur
cardiaque.
• Ils ne doivent PAS placer le téléphone sans fil directement sur le stimulateur cardiaque, tel
que dans une poche de chemise, lorsque celui-ci est en marche.
• Ils doivent utiliser le téléphone sans fil en l’appuyant sur l’oreille qui se trouve dans la
direction opposée au stimulateur cardiaque.
L’étude effectuée par l’organisme WRS n’a pas identifié de risque pour les détenteurs de
simulateurs cardiaques causés par les gens qui utilisent un téléphone sans fil à proximité de ceux-ci.
14
À propos des téléphones sans fil
• Confidentialité : Les mêmes caractéristiques qui constituent des avantages pour les
téléphones sans fil affichent également des restrictions. Les appels téléphoniques sont
transmis entre le combiné sans fil et le socle par le biais d’ondes radio ; il y a donc la
possibilité que vos conversations téléphoniques sans fil soient interceptées par des
équipements de réception radio se trouvant dans la portée du combiné sans fil. Pour cette
raison, vous ne devez pas percevoir les communications téléphoniques sans fil comme
étant aussi confidentielles que celles des téléphones à cordons.
• Alimentation électrique : Le socle de ce téléphone sans fil doit être branché à une prise
électrique fonctionnelle. La prise électrique ne doit pas être contrôlée par un interrupteur
mural. Les appels ne pourront pas être effectués du combiné sans fil si le socle est
débranché ou mis hors tension ou si le courant est coupé.
• Possibilité d’interférences aux téléviseurs : Certains téléphones sans fil fonctionnent sur
des fréquences pouvant causer des interférences aux téléviseurs et aux magnétoscopes.
Pour réduire ou prévenir de telles interférences, ne placez pas le socle du téléphone
sans fil près ou sur un téléviseur ou magnétoscope. S’il y a présence de parasites, il est
conseillé d’éloigner le téléphone sans fil du téléviseur ou du magnétoscope afin de réduire
possiblement les interférences.
• Piles rechargeables : Manipulez les piles avec soin afin de ne pas les court-circuiter avec
des bagues, bracelets ou clés. Les piles ou le conducteur peut surchauffer et causer des
blessures. Respectez la polarité adéquate entre la pile et le chargeur.
• Les bloc-piles rechargeables à l’hydrure métallique de nickel : Jetez ces blocs-piles
de manière écologique et sécuritaire. Ne les incinérez pas et ne les percez pas. Tel que les
autres piles de ce type, elles pourraient dégager une matière toxique qui peut causer des
blessures corporelles si elles sont brûlées ou percées.
