FCC WANTS YOU TO KNOW
This equipment complies with Part 68 of the FCC rules and the requirements adopted by the ACTA.
On the bottom of this equipment is a label that contains, among other information, a product
identifier in the format US:AAAEQ##TXXXX. If requested, this number must be provided to the
telephone company.
An FCC compliant telephone cord and modular plug is provided with this equipment. This equipment
is designed to be connected to the telephone network or premises wiring using a compatible modular
jack which is TIA/EIA-IS-968 compliant. See Installation Instructions for details.
The REN is useful to determine the quantity of devices you may connect to your telephone line and
still have all of those devices ring when your telephone number is called. In most, but not all areas,
the sum of the REN’s of all devices connected to one line should not exceed five (5.0). 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 to determine the maximum REN for your calling area.
If your telephone equipment causes harm to the telephone network, the telephone company may
discontinue your service temporarily. If possible, they will notify you in advance. But if advance
notice isn’t practical, you will be notified as soon as possible. You will be informed of your right to
file a complaint with the FCC.
Your telephone company may make changes in its facilities, equipment, operations, or procedures
that could affect the proper functioning of your equipment. If they do, you will be notified in advance
to give you an opportunity to maintain uninterrupted telephone service. If you experience trouble
with this telephone equipment, disconnect from the network until the problem has been corrected
or until you are sure that the equipment is not malfunctioning.
This equipment may not be used on coin service provided by the telephone company. Connection
to party lines is subject to state tariffs.
The USOC number of the registration jack for the equipment is RJ11C.
This equipment is hearing aid compatible.
Warning: Changes or modifications to this unit not expressly approved by the party responsible
for compliance could void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.
NOTE: This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital
device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable
protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. Some cordless telephones
operate at frequencies that may cause interference to nearby TV’s and VCR’s. 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 interference is experienced, moving the cordless telephone farther away from the
TV or VCR will often reduce or eliminate the interference. 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.
• Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is
connected.
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio TV technician for help.
If your home has specially wired alarm equipment connected to the telephone line, ensure the
installation of this GH3028 does not disable your alarm equipment. If you have questions about
what will disable alarm equipment, consult your telephone company or a qualified installer.

INSTALLATION (CONT.)
INSTALLATION (CONT.)
Wall Mounting
Handset Battery Charging:
Your telephone may be mounted on a wall phone plate or onto two screws (not
included) that you fasten to the wall. For either type of installation, complete the
following steps first.
The battery pack in the handset must be fully charged for about 10-14 hours before
using the telephone.
After connecting to AC power, leave the handset unused in the cradle for ten to
fourteen hours. Later, it will take less time for the battery to recharge. The LCD display
on the base will show “CHARGING” when the handset is in the cradle.
NOTE:
a. When the battery gets low, the LCD display will show “BATTERY LOW”, and the
unit will beep every 10 seconds.
b. If the battery becomes low while you are on a call, you will be disconnected after
about 3 minutes. Terminate the call quickly, and put the handset in the base to
recharge the battery.
c. The battery will hold its charge for several days out of the cradle, depending on use.
NOTE:
The handset will not ring when the ringer is in the “OFF” position. If the handset is out
of the cradle, the LCD display will show “RINGING” during an incoming call.
1. In case of using the standard wall plate, this step is not necessary.
Place the Desk/Wall bracket on the wall and mark the location of the screws. Install
the screws leaving 3/16” extending out from the wall. Use anchors to secure
screws.
2. To connect the Desk/Wall bracket in the wall mount position, simply align the
bracket with the slots on the base until it is securely in place.
3. Insert the AC adaptor into the back of the unit.
To Replace Batteries:
1. Remove battery cover.
2. Remove old battery.
4. Plug one end of the telephone line cord into the TEL LINE jack on the Base unit.
3. Plug the cord of the battery pack into the handset and place
the battery in the case.
5. Thread the adaptor cord and telephone line cord through the grooves in the back
of the unit. The cord will exit from the bottom.
DO NOT CONNECT THE AC ADAPTOR TO THE WALL POWER OUTLET YET.
4. Slide battery cover until it clicks in place. Charge 10-14 hours
before first use.
6. Plug the other end of the line cord into the wall jack.
7. Mount the phone on the wallplate studs or on the screws as in step 1, and press
until the unit locks in place.
8. Plug the AC adaptor into the power outlet.
12
To maximize your battery’s life, we recommend that you periodically fully discharge the
battery, and then recharge it. To do this, unplug your phone line cord from the wall
phone jack. Press the TALK button, and allow the handset to remain on for 10 to 12
hours. Reconnect the phone cord to the wall phone jack. Return the handset to the
base and allow it to fully charge for 12 hours. If this process is completed monthly, it
will reduce the memory buildup that occurs from frequent partial charging.

TELEPHONE OPERATION
Tone / Pulse Operation
Digital Security System
Your telephone will operate on tone or
rotary (pulse) systems.
1. If your house is wired for rotary
service, move the Tone/Pulse switch to
the Pulse position.
2. If your house is wired for Tone
Service, move the Tone/Pulse switch to
the Tone position.
3. If you are unsure of the type of
dialing service you have, set the switch
to Tone. On the handset, press the TALK
button and dial any digit on the keypad.
If the dial tone persists, switch to Pulse.
To disconnect, press the TALK button
again, or set the handset in the cradle.
Your telephone is equipped with a digital
security coding system to protect your
base unit from being accessed by other
cordless telephones.
The code allows your base and handset
to recognize each other so that other
cordless phones will not make calls on
your line.
If the AC adaptor is disconnected or a
loss of power occurs while the handset is
away from the base unit, the security
code will be lost and the phone will be
inoperable. If this occurs, reconnect the
AC adaptor and return the handset to the
base unit so that the security code is
reset.
When the handset is not in the base, only
a handset having the identical security
code and operating on the same channel
can access the base and use your phone
line.
When the handset is in the base, no
other handset, even those having the
identical security code and operating on
the same channel can access the base
and use your phone line.
Digital security coding will also eliminate
the “false” ringing associated with
cordless telephones not equipped with
this feature.
3. Press the MEM key to confirm.
Then the unit will go through the set area code and set contrast.
NOTE:
1. The Caller ID setup procedure will not begin until the handset is fully charged.
2. To set up your telephone again, press and hold the MEM button for 2 seconds in
Date/Time screen.
3. Your telephone will always stay in set area code mode, until you complete the
setup step. However, it will still record the Caller ID information. This information
can be reviewed only after set up is complete.
