Equipment Approval Information
Your telephone equipment is approved for connection to the Public Switched Telephone
Network and is in compliance with parts 15 and 68, FCC Rules and Regulations and the
Technical Requirements for Telephone Terminal Equipment published by ACTA.
1 Notification to the Local Telephone Company
On the bottom of this equipment is a label indicating, among other information, the
US number and Ringer Equivalence Number (REN) for the equipment. You must,
upon request, provide this information to your telephone company.
The REN is useful in determining the number of devices you may connect to your
telephone line and still have all of these devices ring when your telephone number
is called. In most (but not all) areas, the sum of the RENs of all devices connected
to one line should not exceed 5. To be certain of the number of devices you may
connect to your line as determined by the REN, you should contact your local
telephone company.
A plug and jack used to connect this equipment to the premises wiring and
telephone network must comply with the applicable FCC Part 68 rules and
requirements adopted by the ACTA. A compliant telephone cord and modular
plug is provided with this product. It is designed to be connected to a compatible
modular jack that is also compliant. See installation instructions for details.
Notes
• This equipment may not be used on coin service provided by the telephone
company.
• Party lines are subject to state tariffs, and therefore, you may not be able to use your
own telephone equipment if you are on a party line. Check with your local telephone
company.
• Notice must be given to the telephone company upon permanent disconnection of
your telephone from your line.
• If your home has specially wired alarm equipment connected to the telephone line,
ensure the installation of this product does not disable your alarm equipment. If you
have questions about what will disable alarm equipment, consult your telephone
company or a qualified installer.
2 Rights of the Telephone Company
Should your equipment cause trouble on your line which may harm the telephone
network, the telephone company shall, where practicable, notify you that
temporary discontinuance of service may be required. Where prior notice is not
practicable and the circumstances warrant such action, the telephone company
may temporarily discontinue service immediately. In case of such temporary
discontinuance, the telephone company must: (1) promptly notify you of such
temporary discontinuance; (2) afford you the opportunity to correct the situation;
and (3) inform you of your right to bring a complaint to the Commission pursuant to
procedures set forth in Subpart E of Part 68, FCC Rules and Regulations.
The telephone company may make changes in its communications facilities,
equipment, operations or procedures where such action is required in the
operation of its business and not inconsistent with FCC Rules and Regulations. If
these changes are expected to affect the use or performance of your telephone
equipment, the telephone company must give you adequate notice, in writing, to
allow you to maintain uninterrupted service.
Interference Information
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.
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:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna (that is, the antenna for radio or television
that is “receiving” the interference).
• Reorient or relocate and increase the separation between the telecommunications
equipment and receiving antenna.
• Connect the telecommunications equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from
that to which the receiving antenna is connected.
If these measures do not eliminate the interference, please consult your dealer or an
experienced radio/television technician for additional suggestions. Also, the Federal
Communications Commission has prepared a helpful booklet, “How To Identify and
Resolve Radio/TV Interference Problems.” This booklet is available from the U.S.
Government Printing Office, Washington, D.C. 20402. Please specify stock number 004000-00345-4 when ordering copies.

Important Installation Information
CAUTION: When using telephone equipment, there are basic safety
instructions that should always be followed. Refer to the IMPORTANT
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS provided with this product and save them for
future reference.
Your cordless telephone system with Caller ID and Call Waiting is designed to give
you flexibility in use and high quality performance. To get the most from your new
cordless telephone system, we suggest that you take a few minutes right now to
read through this instruction manual. This telephone is a multifunction product
for use with the Call Waiting and Caller ID services available from your local
telephone company. Your Caller ID Call Waiting phone allows you to:
• View the name and telephone number of a caller (Call Waiting Caller ID).
• Identify callers before you answer the phone.
• View the time and date of each incoming call.
• Record up to 40 Caller ID messages sequentially.
• Know who called while you are on the other line or when you
were away.
• Screen unwanted calls, eliminate harassment from annoying calls, or to get
prepared before answering a call.
IMPORTANT: In order to use all of the features of this telephone, you must
subscribe to two separate services available from your local telephone company:
the standard Name/Number Caller ID Service to know who is calling when
the phone rings and Caller ID with Call Waiting Service to know who is calling
while you are on the phone. Because cordless phones operate on electricity,
you should have at least one phone in your home that isn’t cordless, in case the
power in your home goes out.

Telephone Jack Requirements
To use this phone, you need an RJ11C type modular
telephone jack, which might look like the one pictured here,
installed in your home. If you don’t have a modular jack,
call your local phone company to find out how to get one
installed.
Line cord
Wall plate
Modular
telephone
line jack
Your cordless phone uses a digital security system to
protect against false ringing, unauthorized access, and charges to your phone line.
When you place the handset in the base, the unit verifies its security code. After
a power outage or battery replacement, you should place the handset in the base
for about 20 seconds to reset the code.
INSTALLATION NOTE: Some cordless telephones operate at frequencies that
may cause or receive interference with nearby TVs, microwave ovens, 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, microwave oven, or VCR. If such
interference continues, move the cordless telephone farther away from these
appliances. Certain other communications devices may also use the 2.4 GHz
frequency for communication, and, if not properly set, these devices may
interfere with each other and/or your new telephone. If you are concerned
with interference, please refer to the owner’s manual for these devices on how
to properly set channels to avoid interference. Typical devices that may use the
2.4 GHz frequency for communication include wireless audio/video senders,
wireless computer networks, multi-handset cordless telephone systems, and some
long-range cordless telephone systems.
Plug the power supply cord into the power jack on the bottom of the base and the
other end into an electrical outlet. The in use/charge indicator (on the base) turns
on to indicate the battery is charging when the handset is on the cradle.
Allow the phone to charge for 16 hours prior to first use. If you don’t properly
charge the phone, battery performance is compromised.
CAUTION: Use only the ATLINKS USA, Inc. power supply 5-2616 (black)
or 5-2617 (gray) power supply that came with this unit. Using other power
supplies may damage the unit.
Connecting the Telephone Line
1. Plug one end of the telephone line cord into the jack on the bottom of the base
called TEL LINE and the other end into your home’s modular phone jack.
2. Set the ringer switch (on the handset) to ON, and place the handset in the
cradle on the base.
Wall Mounting
If you want to mount the phone on a wall, slip the mounting holes (on the back of
the base) over the wall plate posts, and slide the unit down into place. (Wall plate
not included.)
IMPORTANT: Because cordless phones operate on electricity, you should have
at least one phone in your home that isn’t cordless, in case the power in your
home goes out.
Press the REDIAL button to quickly dial the last number you called (up to 32
digits).
If you get a busy signal, and want to keep dialing the number, press redial to dial
the number again.
