THE FCC WANTS YOU TO KNOW
DESIGN COMPLIANCE Your telephone is designed to comply with
FCC Rules and Regulations, Part 68. It can be connected to the telephone network as
FCC-registered terminal equipment. The registration number is printed on the label
on the bottom of your telephone.
NOTIFICATION TO THE TELEPHONE COMPANY As acustomer 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 coin-operated
lines or party lines.
INTERFERENCE POTENTIAL If your telephone has a push-button
dial, it may generate 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 If your telephone has a push-button TONE dial,
you must have TONE service from your telephone company to use your telephone for
dialing. If your telephone has a rotary dial, you are not required to have TONE
service. 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.
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.
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.

mounting position before mounting a modular wall telephone. Check
to make sure it is in the position shown.
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 switch found on the inside of the Handset handle. The
switch may be conveniently operated while holding the handset.
Pushing the switch toward the Receiver (upper) end of the Handset will increase the
loudness from the Receiver.
Pushing the switch toward the Microphone (lower) end of the Handset will decrease
the loudness from the Receiver.

of the Volume control will usually produce a comfortable listening level for persons
with no hearing impairment.
Your telephone has a TONE-PULSE switch. Set the switch to match the dialing
service from the telephone company.
• If you have pulse service, set the Tone-Pulse switch to PULSE.
• If you set the switch for TONE service, you must have TONE service or
you cannot dial.

If you set the switch for PULSE service and you have TONE service,
you can dial numbers, but you cannot use touch-tone services.
