Important Information
Instructions to customer
You are authorised to install this Permitted Attachment yourself by plugging it into the
line socket of any regular telephone. You may connect it in place of your existing
telephone or to any spare telephone socket installed in your premises.
To disconnect your existing telephone you must first remove its plug from the line socket.
You can then insert the plug of your Permitted Attachment into the socket and use your
equipment.
If the plug of your existing telephone cannot be readily removed, you will have to remove
the screw securing it. To do this proceed as follows:
1. Loosen screw “A” sufficiently to remove the socket cover. (See Fig. 1.)
2. Remove screw “B” and withdraw the plug. (See Fig. 2.)
3. Replace screw “B”. (See Fig. 3.) Ensure that it screws completely into the socket recess.
(If the screw is too long, increase the hole depth or replace the screw with one 5 mm
shorter.)
4. Replace socket cover and tighten screw “A”. (See Fig. 4.)

Preparation
Installation
Attached to this apparatus is an approval label. This label is evidence that it is a
“Permitted Attachment” which has been authorised to be connected to your telephone
service.
Conditions relating to connection and operation of this Permitted Attachment are
contained in Telecommunications General By-Law 220 (5).
TCD420AL_e.book Page 4 Tuesday, July 1, 2003 11:16 AM
Important Information
If you are satisfied with the operation of your telephone service after plugging in your
Permitted Attachment, your installation is completed.
You will be unable to connect this Permitted Attachment if your telephone service
consists only of a wall phone or an old style telephone which is not connected by means
of a modern plug and socket. In such cases a new socket will need to be installed.
Should the Permitted Attachment not operate when plugged into a socket, it is either
faulty or unsuitable for operation with your telephone service. It should be returned to the
store where purchased or an Authorised Service Centre.
Service difficulties
If at any time a fault occurs on your telephone service, carry out the following checks
before you call for service:
• Disconnect the Permitted Attachment and try using the service with the normal
telephone.
• If the telephone service then operates satisfactorily, the fault is in your Permitted
Attachment. Leave the Permitted Attachment disconnected and report the fault to its
supplier or agent to arrange for repair.
• If when using the telephone the service is still faulty, report the fault to “Service
Difficulties and Faults” for attention.
You are required to keep this Permitted Attachment in good working order while it is
connected to your telephone service. Its construction or internal circuit must not be
modified in any way without permission.
WARNING
This cordless telephone system does not incorporate provision for secrecy of
conversations. Appropriately tuned radio equipment and other cordless telephone
systems in close proximity may be used by a third party to monitor and possibly interrupt
conversations in progress when this system is on radio operation.

Caller ID
Caller ID Service
Caller ID is a service of your Network provider and will only operate if you have
subscribed to this feature.
After subscribing to Caller ID, this phone will display the caller information.
If your unit is connected to a PBX or a telephone line that does not support this service,
you will not be able to use it.
Caller ID does not display caller information while using the handset for an intercom call.
However, the caller information will be stored to the Caller ID List.
Call Waiting and Caller ID Compatible: If you subscribe to Caller ID service, your
handset displays the second caller’s information while talking. After you hear a callwaiting tone, the caller’s phone number will be displayed.
• If the phone number is stored in the phonebook with its name, the caller’s name will
also be displayed.
• The second caller’s information will not be displayed when the answering system is
recording someone’s message.
• Please contact Telstra or your service provider for details and availability in your area.
Using Caller ID Type II
When you receive a second call during a conversation, you will hear a signal tone
following the call waiting tone and the conversation will be interrupted or muted for
a short period of time. This is not the fault of the product as these events are normal.
Note: The tones are generated by the telephone company.
13
Cordless Telephone
You can answer the second call, keeping the first call on hold. Follow Telstra or your
service provider instructions using RECALL.

phonebook, the display shows caller’s name when
receiving a call.
If the caller has requested not to display his/her
information, the display shows "PRIVATE".
If the caller dialled from an area which does not provide
Caller ID service, the display shows "OUT OF AREA".
When new calls have been received, the display
shows the numbers of calls.
For example, 4 new calls have been received.

Greeting Messages
You can choose to use one of two pre-recorded greeting messages, or you can record
your own greeting message.
All messages (greeting, incoming & memo) are stored indefinitely on a “Flash memory”
IC chip - even if a power failure occurs.
Pre-Recorded Greeting Messages
You can choose to play either:
- A pre-recorded message which allows you to select a caller’s recording time of
“1 minute” or “unlimited” (up to 20 minutes).
When the recording time is set to “1 minute” or “unlimited”.
- “Hello, we are not available now. Please leave your name and phone number after
the beep. We will return your call.”
OR
- A “greeting only”. If you select “greeting only” (p. 39) and set the answering system
ON, the unit will answer a call with a greeting message, then hang up. It will not
record any incoming messages.
When the recording time is set to “greeting only”.

Before Requesting Help
If you experience any problems with the normal use of your apparatus, you should
unplug it from the telephone outlet and connect a known working telephone in its place.
If the known working telephone still has problems, then please contact the customer
service department of your Network provider.
If it operates correctly, then the problem is likely to be a fault in your apparatus.
In this case, contact your supplier for advice. Your Network provider may charge you if
they attend a service call that is not due to apparatus supplied by them.
