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

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

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 1.9GHz
DECT 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 1.9GHz
DECT 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.
