FCC INFORMATION
Part 68 is a Federal regulation which requires equipment to be tested and registered with the FCC prior to its connection to the network. This equipment complies with Part 68 of FCC rules. On the bottom of the telephone is a label that
contains, among other information, the FCC Registration Number and the Ringer
Equivalence Number (REN) for this equipment. You must, upon request, provide
this information to your telephone company.
The Ringer Equivalence Number(REN), which is used to determine the number
of devices you may connect to your phone line, indicates the amount of power that
your telephone draws from the telephone company line during ringing. If you have
more than one telephone (or other terminal device) connected to the telephone
company line, you should total the RENs, 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.
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.
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.
