WARNINGS
CAUTION
Changes or modifications to this product not expressly approved
by Vertical Communications, or operation of this product in any
way other than as detailed by this User Guide, could void your
authority to operate this product.
Unplug all electrical appliances when you know an electrical storm is
approaching. Lightning can pass through your household wiring and damage any
device connected to it. This phone is no exception.
NOTE: Do not attempt to unplug any appliance during an electrical storm.

WARNINGS
Your new phone is designed to achieve
the maximum possible range by
Range
transmitting and receiving according to the highest specifications set forth by the
FCC and IC. We have rated this phone to operate at a maximum distance with the
qualification that the range depends upon the environment in which the telephone
is used. Many factors limit range, and it would be impossible to include all the
variables in our rating. The Maximum Range rating of this phone is meant to be
used as a means of comparison against other range claims.
The FCC and IC haveTelephone
granted the telephone
the right to disconnect
Line company
Problems
service in the event that your phone causes problems on the telephone line. Also,
the telephone company may make changes in facilities and services which may
affect the operation of your unit. However, your telephone company must give
adequate notice in writing prior to such actions to allow you time for making
necessary arrangements to continue uninterrupted service.
If you are having trouble with your telephone service, you must first disconnect
your phone to determine if it is the cause of your problem. If you determine that it
is the cause, you must leave it disconnected until the trouble has been corrected.
Radio interference may occasionally
cause buzzing and humming in your
Radio Interference
cordless Handset, or clicking noises in the Base Unit. This interference is caused
by external sources such as a TV, refrigerator, vacuum cleaner, fluorescent
lighting, computer equipment, or electrical storm. Your unit is NOT DEFECTIVE. If
these noises continue and are too distracting, please check around your office to
see what appliances may be causing the problem. In addition, we recommend
that the Base not be plugged into a circuit that also powers a major appliance
because of the potential for interference. Be certain that the antenna on the unit is
fully extended when needed.
In the unlikely event that you consistently hear other voices or distracting
transmissions on your phone, you may be receiving radio signals from another
cordless telephone or other source of interference. If you cannot eliminate this
type of interference, you need to change to a different channel.

Ranger.book Page vii Friday, May 18, 2007 5:51 PM
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
Finally, it should be noted that some cordless telephones operate at frequencies
that may cause interference to nearby TVs and VCRs. To minimize or prevent
such interference, the base of the cordless telephone should not be placed 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.

Telephone in a constrained physical area, the phones must operate on different
frequencies (channels). If there are multiple phones in an area where the base
stations are closely located, there is a chance that there could be interference
between the units if two or more units are trying to operate on the same frequency
simultaneously. If there is a noticeable degradation of call quality, the user can
press the Channel Key to select a channel that provides the clearest
communication to restore the quality of the call.
NOTE: Cordless phones are radio devices.
Communications between the

Handset and Base Unit of your cordless telephone are accomplished by means of
radio waves which are broadcast over the open airways. Because of the inherent
physical properties of radio waves, your communications can be received by radio
receiving devices other than your own cordless telephone unit. Consequently, any
communications using your cordless telephone may not be private.
