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, 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.

Precautions for users of implanted cardiac pacemakers
Cardiac pacemakers (applies only to digital cordless telephones):
Wireless Technology Research, LLC (WTR), an independent research entity, led a multidisciplinary evaluation of the interference
between portable wireless telephones and implanted cardiac
pacemakers. Supported by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration,
WTR recommends to physicians that:
