a power outlet which is not switchable.
• Keep the base and handset away from sources of electrical noise
such as motors and fluorescent lighting.
• Be sure there is sufficient space to raise the base antenna fully
vertical.
• The base can be placed on a desk, tabletop or mounted on a
standard wall plate.

directly to the wall. Before doing this, consider the following:
• Avoid electrical cables, pipes, or other items behind the mounting
location. That could cause a hazard when inserting screws into the
wall.
• Try to mount your phone within 10 - 15 feet of a working phone
jack to avoid excessive cord lengths.
• Make sure the wall material is capable of supporting the weight of
the base and handset.
