Caller ID
About caller ID information
If you subscribe to caller ID service from your local telephone company, this feature displays the
name and telephone number of the caller before answering a call (even when you are on another
call). The caller ID features of this product will work only if you subscribe to caller ID service and
both you and the caller are in areas offering caller ID service, and if both telephone companies use
compatible equipment.
Contact your local telephone company if:
• you have both caller ID and call waiting, but as separate services (you may need combined service),
• you have only caller ID service, or only call waiting service,
• you do not subscribe to caller ID or call waiting services but wish to try them.
There may be fees for these services, and they may not be available in all areas.
This product can be used without subscribing to either caller ID or combined caller ID with call waiting
service, although the caller ID features of this product will not function.

. Move closer
to the telephone base, then press
to answer the call.
If the handset is moved out of range during a telephone conversation, there might be interference. To improve reception, move closer to the telephone base.

FCC, ACTA and IC regulations
FCC Part 15
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the requirements for a Class B digital device under Part 15 of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)
rules. These requirements are intended 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:
* Re-orient 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.
Changes or modifications to this equipment not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.
To ensure safety of users, the FCC has established criteria for the amount of radio frequency energy that can be safely absorbed by a user or bystander according to
the intended usage of the product. This product has been tested and found to comply with the FCC criteria. The handset may be safely held against the ear of the user.
The telephone base shall be installed and used such that parts of the user’s body other than the hands are maintained at a distance of approximately 20 cm (8 inches)

The RBRC® Seal
The RBRC ® Seal on the nickel-cadmium battery indicates that VTech Communications, Inc. is voluntarily
participating in an industry program to collect and recycle these batteries at the end of their useful lives,
when taken out of service within the United States and Canada.
The RBRC ® program provides a convenient alternative to placing used nickel-cadmium batteries into the
trash or municipal waste, which may be illegal in your area.
VTech’s participation in RBRC ® makes it easy for you to drop off the spent battery at local retailers participating in the
RBRC ® program or at authorized VTech product service centers. Please call 1-800-8-BATTERY TM for information on Ni-Cd
battery recycling and disposal bans/restrictions in your area. VTech’s involvement in this program is part of its commitment
to protecting our environment and conserving natural resources.
