Appendix B
Maintenance
Taking care of your telephone
• Your cordless telephone contains sophisticated electronic parts, so you must
treat it 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
• You can damage your telephone if it gets wet. Do not use the handset 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 electric 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 a
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 water. If the telephone base should fall into water, DO NOT
RETRIEVE IT UNTIL YOU UNPLUG THE POWER CORD AND TELEPHONE LINE CORDS
FROM THE WALL. Then pull the unit out by the unplugged cords.

Appendix C
Important safety information
Especially 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 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.
• Rechargeable batteries: This product contains nickel-metal hydride rechargeable
batteries. Exercise care in handling batteries in order not to create a short
circuit with conductive 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. Like other batteries of this type, if burned or
punctured, they could release caustic material which could cause injury.
The RBRC™ Seal means that the manufacturer is voluntarily
participating in an industry program to collect and recycle nickel-metal
hydride rechargeable batteries when taken out of service within the
United States. These batteries may be taken to a participating local
retailer of replacement batteries or recycling center. Or you may call
1 (800) 8-BATTERY for locations accepting spent Ni-MH batteries.
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:
23
Appendix C
Important safety information
Pacemaker patients
Should keep wireless telephones at least six inches from the pacemaker.
Should NOT place wireless telephones directly over the pacemaker, such as in a
breast pocket, when it is turned ON.
Should use the wireless telephone at the ear opposite the pacemaker.
WTR’s evaluation did not identify any risk to bystanders with pacemakers from
other persons using wireless telephones.
