IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Safety Instructions for Batteries
CAUTION
11. To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not disassemble this
product, but take it to a qualified technician when some
service or repair work is required. Opening or removing
covers may expose you to dangerous voltages or other risks.
Incorrect reassembly can cause electric shock when the
appliance is subsequently used.
12. Unplug this product from the wall outlet and refer servicing
to qualified service personnel under the following conditions:
a. When the power supply cord or plug is damaged or frayed.
b. If liquid has been spilled into the product.
c. If the product has been exposed to rain or water.
d. If the product does not operate normally by following the
operating instructions. Adjust only those controls that are
covered by the operating instructions because improper
adjustment of other controls may result in damage and will
often require extensive work by a qualified technician to
restore the product to normal operation.
e. If the product has been dropped or the cabinet has been
damaged.
f. If the product exhibits a distinct change in performance.
13. Avoid using a telephone (other than a cordless type) during
an electrical storm. There may be a remote risk of electric
shock from lightning.
14. Do not use the telephone to report a gas leak in the vicinity
of the leak.
15. Use only the power cord and batteries indicated in this manual.
Do not dispose of batteries in a fire. They may explode. Check
with local codes for possible special disposal instructions.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS

READ AND FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS.
1. Use only the size and type of batteries mentioned in the Owner's
Manual.
2. Do not dispose of the batteries in a fire. The cells may explode.
Check with local codes for possible special disposal instructions.
3. Do not open or mutilate the batteries. Released electrolyte is
corrosive and may cause damage to the eyes or skin. It may be toxic if
swallowed.
4. Exercise care in handling batteries in order not to short the batteries
with conducting materials such as rings, bracelets, and keys. The
batteries or conductors may overheat and cause burns.
5. Do not attempt to recharge the batteries identified for use with this
product. The batteries may leak corrosive electrolyte or explode.
6. Do not attempt to rejuvenate the batteries identified for use with this
product by heating it. Sudden release of the battery electrolyte may
occur, causing burns or irritation to eyes or skin.
7. When replacing batteries, all batteries should be replaced at the
same time. Mixing fresh and discharged batteries could increase
internal cell pressure and rupture the discharged batteries.
8. When inserting batteries into this product, the proper polarity or
direction must be observed. Reverse insertion of the batteries can
cause charging, and that may result in leakage or explosion.
9. Remove the batteries from this product if the product will not be
used for a long period of time (several months or more) since during
this time the batteries could leak in the product.
10. Discard "dead" batteries as soon as possible since "dead" batteries
are more likely to leak in a product.
11. Do not store this product, or the batteries identified for use with
this product, in high-temperature areas. Batteries that are stored in a
freezer or refrigerator for the purpose of extending shelf life should be
protected from condensation during storage and defrosting. Batteries
should be stabilized at room temperature prior to use after cold
storage.

7 digits without a 1 prefix; (2) 7 digits with a 1 prefix; (3) 10 digits
without a 1 prefix; and (4) 10 digits with a 1 prefix.
1. 7 digits without a 1 : Assuming that you have programmed your
correct area code, redial your local call by pressing the REDIAL Button
ONCE.
2. 7 digits with a 1 : Assuming that you have programmed your correct
area code, scroll to the local 7 digit call you wish to redial. Simply press
the REDIAL Button TWICE.
3. 10 digits without a 1 : Due to the software setup of the FM2560 you
are instructed to enter your 3 digit local area code. In some areas of the
country, you must include your area code when making a local call. To
solve this issue, you should reprogram your FM2560 to another 3 digit
"fictitious" area code. We recommend using an area code not currently
being use in the U.S., (i.e... 100 etc.) Once your area code is
programmed as above, your FM2560 will show all "10 digits" for every
incoming call. To redial a local 10 digit call, press the REDIAL Button
twice in succession. The "1" prefix is then omitted and the local 10 digit
call is redialed out.

reprogram your FM2560 to another 3 digit "fictitious" area code. The
"1" prefix will be added before the 10 digit number and your long
distance call will be dialed out.
