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 004-00000345-4 when ordering copies.

INTRODUCTION
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.
Congratulations on purchasing this GE cordless telephone/answering
system with Call Waiting Caller ID. This telephone has been designed to be
simple to use, however, you can reach its full potential more quickly by
taking a few minutes to read this instruction book. This telephone is a
multifunction product for use with 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 while you are on the
phone (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 in each handset.
• know who called while you were away.
• screen unwanted calls, eliminate harassment from annoying calls, or to
get prepared before answering a call.
5
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.
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 Call Waiting Caller ID Service to know who
is calling while you are on the phone.
INSTALLATION NOTE: Some cordless telephones operate at frequencies
that may cause interference to 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 ovens, 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. 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.

some of the old messages so the system can record new messages.

TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
TELEPHONE SOLUTIONS
No dial tone
• Check or repeat installation steps.
• Make sure base power cord is connected to a working electrical outlet.
• Make sure the telephone line cord is connected to the base and the
modular phone jack.
• Connect another phone to the same jack; if there is still no dial tone, the
problem might be your wiring or local service.
• The cordless handset may be out of range of the base. Move closer to
the base.
• Make sure the battery is properly charged (16 hours).
51
• Make sure the battery pack is installed correctly.
• Did the handset beep when you pressed the talk/callback button? Did
the charge indicator on the base turn on? The battery may need to be
charged.
• Place handset in cradle for at least 20 seconds to reset.
Dial tone is OK but can’t dial out
• Make sure the TONE/PULSE setting on the base is set to the type of
phone service you are subscribed to.
Handset does not ring
• Make sure the handset ringer setting is ON.
• The cordless handset may be out of range of the base. Move closer to
the base.
• You may have too many extension phones on your line. Try unplugging
some phones.
• Check for dial tone.
You experience static, noise, or fading in and out
• The cordless handset may be out of range of the base. Move closer to
the base.
• Relocate the base. Make sure base is not plugged into an outlet with
another household appliance.
• Charge the battery.
Unit beeps
• Place the handset in the cradle for 20 seconds. If it still beeps, charge
battery for 16 hours.
• Clean charging contacts on cordless handset and base/charge cradle
with a soft cloth or an eraser.
• See solutions for “No dial tone.”
• Replace the battery.
52
Charge indicator on the base flashes
• Provided your phone company offers voice message service and you
subscribe to it, the charge indicator on the base flashes when the phone
is not in use to indicate there is a message waiting. It stops flashing
after the message has been reviewed.
Memory Dialing doesn't work
• Did you program the memory location keys correctly?
• Did you follow proper dialing sequence?
Unit locks up and no communication between the base and
cordless handset
• Unplug the AC power converter from the wall outlet and the back of
the base/charge cradle. Remove the handset battery. Wait for 30
seconds and plug the power adapter back into the base/charge cradle
and wall outlets. Reconnect the battery and charge for 16 hours. Reregister the handset.
CALLER ID SOLUTIONS
No Display
• Charge or replace the battery.
• Make sure that the unit is connected to a non-switched electrical outlet.
Disconnect the AC power converter from the base/charge cradle and
reconnect it.
Caller ID Error Message
• The unit displays this message if it detects anything other than valid
Caller ID information during the silent period after the first ring. This
message indicates the presence of noise on the line.
No Caller ID
• You must be subscribed to Caller ID service from your local telephone
company to receive Caller ID records.
