THANK YOU FOR PURCHASING
THIS TELEPHONE
We want you to know all about your new
telephone, how to install it, the features it
provides, and the services you can expect
from its use. We have included this information in your Owner’s Instruction Manual.
PLEASE READ BEFORE INSTALLING
AND USING YOUR NEW TELEPHONE.
BEFORE USING YOUR TELEPHONE
This telephone includes a Handset with Receiver Volume Control
that complies with FCC Part 68 requirements mandated by the
Hearing Aid Compatibility Act of 1988.
The Volume Control is a small rotary knob that protrudes from the
inside of the Handset handle. The rotary knob may be
conveniently operated with the thumb, index, or middle finger
while holding the handset.
Rotating the knob toward the Receiver (upper) end of the Handset
will increase the loudness from the Receiver.

warranties. During the warranty period, CORTELCO
agrees to repair or, at its option, replace the defective
telephone, or any part of it without charge for parts or
labor. This is your exclusive remedy. This warranty
does not cover damage resulting from accident, misuse, abuse, improper installation or operation, lack of
reasonable care, the affixing of any attachment not

Telephone companies use different types of equipment and offer various types of services to
customers. CORTELCO does not warrant that this

loudness setting of the Volume control will usually produce a
comfortable listening level for persons with no hearing
impairment.

This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules.
Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1)
this device may not cause harmful interference, and (2)
this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.
Warning: Changes or modifications to this unit not
expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the user’s authority to operate the
equipment.
NOTE: This equipment has been tested and found to
comply with the limits for a CLASS B digital device,
pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are
designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency
energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with
the instructions, may cause harmful interference to
radio communications. However, there is no guarantee
that interference will not occur in a particular installation.
If this equipment does cause harmful interference to
radio or television reception, which can be determined
by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of
the following measures:
NOTIFICATION TO THE TELEPHONE COMPANY As a
customer of the local telephone company, you must, if they ask,
tell them before connecting your telephone to the telephone
company lines. The telephone company may need the FCC
registration number and the ringer equivalence of the telephone.
This information is printed on a label on the bottom of your
telephone.
RINGER EQUIVALENCE The ringer equivalence indicates the
amount of power that your telephone draws from the telephone
company line during ringing. The number is printed on the label
on the bottom of your telephone.
If you have more than one telephone (or other terminal device)
connected to the telephone company line, you should total the
ringer equivalence numbers (REN’s), and be sure that the total
is not more than five. Your telephones may not ring if the total is
more than five. Also, in some rural locations, your telephone may
not ring if the REN total is more than three.
RESTRICTIONS You must not connect your telephone to coinoperated lines or party lines.
INTERFERENCE POTENTIAL Your telephone has a push-button
dial that generates radio frequency energy. If not properly used,
it may interfere with radio and television reception. If the telephone does cause interference with reception, move the radio
or television to another electrical circuit or another location. If
necessary, you may need to seek advice from an experienced
technician.
INSTALLATION This model telephone must be connected to the
telephone company lines through a modular jack. The required
USOC for the modular jack is RJ11C for desk mounting and RJ11W
for wall mounting. The USOC number is printed on the label on the
bottom of your telephone.
TYPE OF DIALING Your telephone has a push-button TONE dial.
You must have TONE service from your telephone company to
use your telephone for dialing. Note that you will usually be
charged extra for TONE service.
HEARING-AID COMPATIBILITY The handset on your telephone
will work with magnetically-coupled hearing aids. You can use
a hearing aid equipped with a T (Telephone) switch.
- Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
- Increase the separation between the equipment and
receiver.
- Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit
different from that to which the receiver is connected.
- Consult the dealer or an experienced radio TV technician for help.
IN CASE OF TROUBLE If your telephone should cause
problems on the telephone line, the telephone company can
temporarily disconnect your service. The telephone company
must then notify and allow you to correct the problem.
The telephone company may from time to time change its lines or
equipment. They must notify you if planned changes will affect
your telephone service, to allow you to take steps to prevent
interruptions.
REPAIR OF YOUR TELEPHONE
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REPAIR THE TELEPHONE YOURSELF. Telephones manufactured by CORTELCO must be
returned to us for repair.
You can return your telephone to CORTELCO for repair
or replacement in accordance with our LIMITED WARRANTY.
Model 2500 TEL-FLASH Telephone (Ordering Code 2500**-VBA-20F)
With Optional Message Waiting Lamp (Ordering Code 2500**-VBA-27F)
Model 2554 TEL-FLASH Telephone (Ordering Code 2554**-VBA-20F)
With Optional Message Waiting Lamp (Ordering Code 2554**-VBA-27F)
FEATURES OF YOUR TELEPHONE
USING YOUR TELEPHONE
The TEL-FLASH telephone is designed for use with modern PABXs,
hybrid communication systems, and central offices providing custom
calling features.
HANDSET The handset receiver is compatible with magneticallycoupled hearing aids.
PUSH-BUTTON DIAL The push-button dial is used to dial numbers using
TONE dialing. You must have tone service for your telephone company
to use this telephone.
RINGER VOLUME CONTROL The ringer volume control is used to set
ringing for high volume, low volume, or silence ringing. If the switch is
set to silence ringing, you will not hear the ringer when someone calls
you.
TEL-FLASH The convenient FLASH button is used, rather than the
hookswitch, to access PBX features such as transfer, hold, and
conference.
MESSAGE WAITING LAMP The optional message waiting lamp is used
in PABX applications to indicate that the station user should contact the
message center. The lamp operates with 90 VDC supplied by the
connected equipment.
MAINTENANCE INFORMATION
Treat your telephone with care for trouble-free performance. Avoid
dropping the handset. Carefully place the handset on-hook after use.
MAKING AND ANSWERING CALLS
Lift the handset to receive dial tone for making a call or to answer
an incoming call. You can end a call by placing the handset onhook.
SENDING A FLASH
Use The Flash Button For Features Access.
Use The Hookswitch Plunger For Positive Disconnect.
To signal your telephone system during a call, press the
FLASH button. The results of a flash signal depend on the
services you have available from the telephone company.
For example, if you have "second-call waiting" provided by
your central office, operating the FLASH button puts the first
call on hold and connects you to the waiting call.
Refer to the user instructions included with your PABX. When
a "hookswitch flash" is indicated, use the FLASH button. Do
NOT use the hookswitch as this will disconnect you.
To disconnect after transferring or completing a call, simply
hang up your handset. If you want to make another call
without hanging up, press and release the hookswitch
plunger; wait for dial tone; and dial the number. Operating the
hookswitch plunger will disconnect you for a minimum of 1.2
seconds. Remember that a new dial tone will be slightly
delayed when you use this procedure.
ANSWERING A MESSAGE WAITING SIGNAL
Clean your telephone with a damp cloth. Stains may be removed
with a mild soap. Do not use liquid or aerosol detergents or cleaning
agents.
You will be signaled by a flashing message waiting
lamp when you have a message waiting. Operation of the
message center will, of course, depend on your telephone
system. Usually, you can dial the number for the message
center, retrieve your message, and the message center
attendant will turn off the message waiting lamp on your
telephone.
