IMPORTANT INFORMATION
NOTICE: The Industry Canada label identifies certified equipment. This certification means that
the equipment meets certain telecommunications network protective, operational and safety
requirements. The Industry Canada does not guarantee the equipment will operate to the user’s
satisfaction.
Before installing this equipment, users should ensure that it is permissible to be connected to the
facilities of the local telecommunications company. The equipment must also be installed using an
acceptable method of connection. The customer should be aware that compliance with the above
conditions may not prevent degradation of service in some situations.
Repairs to certified equipment should be made by an authorized Canadian maintenance facility
designated by the supplier. Any repairs or alterations made by the user to this equipment, or
equipment malfunctions, may give the telecommunications company cause to request the user to
disconnect the equipment.
Users should ensure for their own protection that the electrical ground connections of the power

verified by switching this equipment on and off, the user is encouraged to try to correct the
interference by one or more of the following measures: Reorient the radio/television receiver’s
antenna, relocate the equipment with respect to the receiver, plug the equipment and receiver into
separate circuit outlets. The user may also wish to consult a qualified radio/television technician

INTRODUCTION
Your GE cordless phone is designed to give you flexibility in use and high
quality performance. You can use this phone with basic telephone service,
but it fully functions when equipped with the following custom calling
features:
CALLER ID
This feature allows you to see the number or name and number of the
person calling before you answer the phone.
CALL WAITING
This feature allows you to answer incoming calls while you are talking on
the phone.
CALLER ID WITH CALL WAITING
Also known as Type II Caller ID, this feature allows you to see the name
and number of a call that beeps in while you are talking on the phone with
someone else.
VOICE MESSAGING
This feature requires a subscription from the telephone company, allows
callers to leave messages while you are talking on the phone.
DIGITAL SECURITY SYSTEM
Your cordless phone uses a digital security system to prevent false ringing,
unauthorized access, and charges to your phone line.
IMPORTANT
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.
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.

MODULAR JACK REQUIREMENTS
You need an RJ11(CA11A) 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.

Setting your area code is necessary for proper caller ID operation.
Once you set the code, the phone will automatically remove it from local

2. Press ENTER. The Caller ID display prompts you to enter your area
code.
3. Enter your 3-digit area code by pressing the appropriate number keys.

enter your 3-digit area code using the number keys.
3b. If, instead, 10-digit dialing (area code + number) is required for ALL
local calls in your area, enter "000" to prevent area codes from being
removed.
The phone emits 2 beeps to confirm it has accepted the area code entry.
4. To change or enter your area code again, follow steps 1-3 above.

USING THE SPEAKERPHONE
For best speakerphone performance, avoid the following:
• Areas with high background noise. (The microphone might pick up
these sounds and prevent the speakerphone from going into the
receiving mode when you finish talking.)
• Surfaces affected by vibration.
• Recessed areas such as in a corner, under a cupboard, or next to a
cabinet, which can generate an echo effect.
16
Note the following guidelines when you use the speakerphone:
• The speakerphone works similar to a two-way radio in that you can only
listen or talk one at a time.
• Stay reasonably close to the phone so that you can be clearly heard by
the person to whom you are speaking.
• The speakerphone indicator light is on when the speakerphone is in use.
ANSWERING AND PLACING CALLS
Receiving a Call

tone. Each pause counts as 1 digit in the
dialing sequence.
FLASH

outlet?
— Is the PHONE or SPEAKER light on?
— Is the telephone line cord connected to the
base unit and the wall jack?
• Disconnect the base from the wall jack and
connect another phone to the same jack. If there

• Make sure the battery is properly charged (12
hours).

PHONE button? Did the light come on? The
battery may need to be charged.

is correctly set.
Handset does not ring
• Make sure the RINGER switch on the handset is
turned to ON.
• You may have too many extension phones on
your line. Try unplugging some phones.
• See solutions for "No dial tone."

Battery
If you experience any of the following problems,
even after fully recharging the battery, you may
need to replace the battery pack:

• Limited range
• CHARGE/IN USE light fails to light
REN NUMBER
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.
32
CAUSES OF POOR RECEPTION
• Aluminum siding on the building
• Foil backing on building insulation
• Heating ducts and other metal construction can shield radio signals
• You’re too close to appliances such as microwaves, stoves,
computers, etc.
• Atmospheric conditions, such as strong storms
• Base is installed in the basement or lower floor of the house
• Base is plugged into an AC outlet with other electronic devices
• Baby monitor is using the same frequency
TELEPHONE NETWORK INFORMATION
Should your equipment cause trouble on your line which may harm the
telephone network, the telephone company, where practicable, may 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.
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. If these changes are expected to
affect the use or performance of your telephone equipment, the telephone
company will likely give you adequate notice to allow you to maintain
uninterrupted service.
Notice must be given to the telephone company upon termination of your
telephone from your line.

REPLACING THE BATTERY
The handset comes with a brand new, consumer-replaceable nickel
cadmium (NiCad) battery pack. With normal use and recharging, a NiCad
