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

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

• 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.
US Number is located on the cabinet bottom.
REN Number is located on the cabinet bottom.
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.

If you need a modular jack, call your local phone company to find out line jack

Installation
Digital Security System
Your cordless phone uses a digital security system to protect against false ringing,
unauthorized access, and charges to your phone line.
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 ovens, or VCR. If such interference continues, move the
cordless telephone farther away from these appliances.
Certain other communications devices may also use the 5.8 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 5.8 GHz frequency for communication
include wireless audio/video senders, wireless computer networks,
multi-handset cordless telephone systems, and some long-range
cordless telephone systems.
Important Installation Guidelines
• Avoid sources of noise and heat, such as motors, fluorescent lighting, microwave
ovens, heating appliances and direct sunlight.
• Avoid areas of excessive dust, moisture and low temperature.
• Avoid other cordless telephones or personal computers.
• Never install telephone wiring during a lightning storm.
• Never install telephone jacks in wet locations unless the jack is specifically designed
for wet locations.
• Never touch non-insulated telephone wires or terminals, unless the telephone line has
been disconnected at the network interface.
• Use caution when installing or modifying telephone lines.
