FCC REGISTRATION INFORMATION
Your telephone equipment is registered with the Federal Communications Commission and is in compliance
with parts 15 and 68, FCC Rules and Regulations.
1 Notification to the Local Telephone Company
On the bottom of this equipment is a label indicating, among other information, the FCC Registration 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.
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.
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 pur suant 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 of
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, pur suant 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 recei ving
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
004-000-00345-4 when ordering copies.

MODULAR JACK REQUIREMENTS
You need an RJ11 type modular jack, which is the most
common type of phone jack and might look like the one
pictured here. If you don’t have a modular jack, call your
local phone company to find out how to get one installed.
INSTALLATION NOTE: Some cordless telephones operate at frequencies
that may cause interference to nearby TVs 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 or VCR. If such interference continues, move the
cordless telephone farther away from the TV or VCR.

CALLER ID OPERATION
This Caller ID telephone system receives and displays information
transmitted by your local telephone company. This information can include
the phone number, date and time; or the name, phone number, and date
and time.
RECEIVING AND STORING CALL RECORDS
When you receive a call, the information is transmitted by the phone
company to your Caller ID telephone between the first and second ring.
The Caller ID information appears on the display for ten seconds while the
phone rings, giving you a chance to monitor the information and decide
whether or not to answer the ringing call.
If you are not at home or cannot answer, the telephone stores the
information so that you can see who called while you were unavailable.
Caller ID memory automatically stores the call number, date, time, phone
number and name, for the last 40 calls. If Caller ID memory is full, a new
call automatically replaces the oldest call in memory.
At any time, you can review the stored information for the last 40 calls.
Any calls received since your last review are marked as NEW in the
display, to remind you to review them.

CHANGING THE BATTERY
Make sure the telephone is OFF
before you replace battery.
1. Remove the battery
compartment door.
2. Disconnect the battery plug and
remove the battery pack from the
handset.
3. Insert the new battery pack and
reconnect the battery plug.
4. Put the battery compartment
door back on.
5. Place handset in the base to
charge. If you don’t charge the
handset battery properly (for 12
hours) when you first set up the
phone and/or when you install a
new battery pack, the battery’s
long-term performance will be
compromised.

BATTERY SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
• Do not burn, disassemble, mutilate, or puncture. Like other batteries of
this type, toxic materials could be released which can cause injury.
• To reduce the risk of fire or personal injury, use only the battery listed in
the User’s Guide.
• Keep batteries out of the reach of children.
• Remove batteries if storing over 30 days.
RB

NOTE: The RBRC seal on the battery used in your
product indicates that we are participating in a program
to collect and recycle Nickel Cadmium batteries
throughout the United States of America. Please call
1-800-8-BATTERY for information or contact your local
recycling center.
GENERAL PRODUCT CARE
To keep your telephone working and looking good, follow these guidelines:
• Avoid putting the phone near heating appliances and devices that
generate electrical noise (for example, motors or fluorescent lamps).
• DO NOT expose to direct sunlight or moisture.
• Avoid dropping the handset, as well as other rough treatment to the
phone.
• Clean the phone with a soft cloth.
• Never use a strong cleaning agent or abrasive powder because this will
damage the finish.
