Menu 2 3 Getting Started Getting Started Battery installation & charging Before you begin you’re on another call. (This feature works only with standard calls, not Internet calls, and requires services provided by your local telephone company.) Internet calling To make and receive Internet calls, you must install software provided on the enclosed CD-ROM (see page 9). After installation, place the handset in the base and allow to charge for 15 hours before use. Note: The screen will be blank until the batteries are charged enough to activate it. You can keep batteries charged by placing the handset in the base after each use. When batteries are fully depleted, a full recharge takes 15 hours. Contact your telephone service provider if: Telephone operating range BATTERY LOW PLACE IN CHARGER • You have both Caller ID and Call Waiting, but as separate services (you may need combined service) This cordless telephone operates with 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. • You have only Caller ID service, or only Call Waiting service Low battery indicator Return handset to base or charger when this symbol appears. (Handset will beep when battery is low.) Press here and pull down to remove cover • You don’t subscribe to any Caller ID or Call Waiting services. Insert supplied batteries You can use this phone with regular Caller ID service, and you can use its other features without subscribing to either Caller ID or combined Caller ID with Call Waiting service. There may be fees for these services, and they may not be available in all areas. 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 CALL. Move closer to the base, then press CALL to answer the call. Caution: Do not use alkaline batteries. Use only the batteries that came with your phone, or contact our Customer Support Center to order additional batteries. Place handset in base to charge for 15 hours before first use. Caller ID features will work only if both you and the caller are in areas offering Caller ID service, and if both telephone companies use compatible equipment. If you move out of range during a phone conversation, you might hear noise or interference. To improve reception, move closer to the base. See Caller ID Operation, beginning on page 22, for more details about how these features work. If you move out of range without pressing OFF, your phone will be left “off the hook.” To hang up properly, walk back toward the telephone base, periodically pressing OFF until the call is disconnected.

Move the handset closer to the base. • Appliances plugged into the same circuit as the base can cause interference. Try moving the appliance or base to another outlet. • 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. • Disconnect the base from the modular jack and plug in a corded telephone. If calls are still not clear, the problem is probably in your wiring or local service.

Any repairs or alterations made by the user to this equipment, or equipment malfunctions, may give the telecommunications company cause to request the user to disconnect the equipment. This telephone is registered for use in Canada. The term “IC:” before the radio certification number only signifies that Industry Canada technical specifications were met. Notice: This equipment meets the applicable Industry Canada Terminal Equipment Technical Specifications. This is confirmed by the registration number. The abbreviation, IC, before the registration number signifies that registration was performed based on a Declaration of Conformity indicating that Industry Canada technical specifications were met. It does not imply that Industry Canada approved the equipment. Users should ensure for their own protection that the electrical ground connections of the power utility, telephone lines and internal metallic water pipe system, if present, are connected together. This precaution may be particularly important in rural areas. Caution: Users should not attempt to make such connections themselves, but should contact the appropriate electrical inspection authority or electrician as appropriate. Notice: The Ringer Equivalence Number (REN) for this terminal equipment is 0.7. The REN assigned to each terminal equipment provides an indication of the maximum number of terminals allowed to be connected to a telephone interface. The termination on an interface may consist of any combination of devices subject only to the requirement that the sum of the Ringer Equivalence Numbers of all the devices does not exceed five. Your Cordless Phone is designed to operate at the maximum power allowed by the FCC and IC. This means your Handset and Base Unit can communicate only over a certain distance — which will depend on the location of the base unit and handset, weather, and the construction and layout of your home or office. Before installing this equipment, users should ensure that it is permissible to be connected to the facilities of the local telecommunications company.
