Precautions for users of implanted cardiac pacemakers
Cardiac pacemakers (applies only to digital cordless telephones):
Wireless Technology Research, LLC (WTR), an independent research entity, led a multidisciplinary
evaluation of the interference between portable wireless telephones and implanted cardiac pacemakers.
Supported by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, WTR recommends to physicians that:
Pacemaker patients
• Should keep wireless telephones at least six inches from the pacemaker.
• Should NOT place wireless telephones directly over the pacemaker, such as in a breast pocket,
when it is turned ON.
• Should use the wireless telephone at the ear opposite the pacemaker.
WTR’s evaluation did not identify any risk to bystanders with pacemakers from other persons using
wireless telephones.
About cordless telephones
Privacy: The same features that make a cordless telephone convenient create some limitations.
Telephone calls are transmitted between the telephone base and the cordless handset by radio
waves, so there is a possibility that the cordless telephone conversations could be intercepted by
radio receiving equipment within range of the cordless handset. For this reason, you should not think
of cordless telephone conversations as being as private as those on corded telephones.
Electrical power: The telephone base of this cordless telephone must be connected to a working
electrical outlet. The electrical outlet should not be controlled by a wall switch. Calls cannot be made
from the cordless handset if the telephone base is unplugged, switched off or if the electrical power
is interrupted.
Potential TV interference: Some cordless telephones operate at frequencies that may cause
interference to televisions and VCRs. To minimize or prevent such interference, do not place
the telephone base of the cordless telephone near or on top of a TV or VCR. If interference is
experienced, moving the cordless telephone farther away from the TV or VCR often reduces or
eliminates the interference.
Rechargeable batteries: Exercise care in handling batteries in order not to create a short circuit
with conducting material such as rings, bracelets, and keys. The battery or conductor may overheat
and cause harm. Observe proper polarity between the battery and the battery charger.
Nickel-metal hydride rechargeable batteries: Dispose of these batteries in a safe manner. Do
not burn or puncture the battery. Like other batteries of this type, if burned or punctured, they could
release caustic material which could cause injury.
Operating range
This cordless telephone operates with the maximum power allowed by the Federal Communications
Commission (FCC). Even so, this handset and telephone base can communicate over only a certain
distance - which can vary with the locations of the telephone base and handset, the weather, and the
layout of your home or office.
When the handset is out of range, the handset screen displays Out of range OR No pwr at base.
If there is a call while the handset is out of range, it may not ring, or if it does ring, the call may not connect
well when you press /FLASH. Move closer to the telephone base, then press /FLASH to answer the call.
If the handset moves out of range during a telephone conversation, there may be interference. To
improve reception, move closer to the telephone base.
Taking care of your telephone
Your cordless telephone contains sophisticated electronic parts, so it must be treated with care.
Avoid rough treatment
Place the handset down gently. Save the original packing materials to protect your telephone if you ever
need to ship it.
Avoid water
Your telephone can be damaged if it gets wet. Do not use the handset outdoors in the rain, or handle it
with wet hands. Do not install the telephone base near a sink, bathtub or shower.
Electrical storms
Electrical storms can sometimes cause power surges harmful to electronic equipment. For your own
safety, take caution when using electrical appliances during storms.
Cleaning your telephone
Your telephone has a durable plastic casing that should retain its luster for many years. Clean it only with a soft
cloth slightly dampened with water or mild soap. Do not use excess water or cleaning solvents of any kind.
Remember that electrical appliances can cause serious injury if used when you are wet or standing
in the water. If the telephone base should fall into the water, DO NOT RETRIEVE IT UNTIL YOU
telephone by the unplugged cords.

À propos des téléphones sans fil
• Confidentialité : Les mêmes caractéristiques qui constituent des avantages pour les
téléphones sans fil affichent également des restrictions. Les appels téléphoniques sont
transmis entre le combiné sans fil et le socle par le biais d’ondes radio ; il y a donc la possibilité
que vos conversations téléphoniques sans fil soient interceptées par des équipements
de réception radio se trouvant dans la portée du combiné sans fil. Pour cette raison, vous
ne devez pas percevoir les communications téléphoniques sans fil comme étant aussi
confidentielles que celles des téléphones à cordons.
• Alimentation électrique : Le socle de ce téléphone sans fil doit être branché à une prise
électrique fonctionnelle. La prise électrique ne doit pas être contrôlée par un interrupteur mural.
Les appels ne pourront pas être effectués du combiné sans fil si le socle est débranché ou mis
hors tension ou si le courant est coupé.
• Possibilité d’interférences aux téléviseurs : Certains téléphones sans fil fonctionnent sur
des fréquences pouvant causer des interférences aux téléviseurs et aux magnétoscopes. Pour
réduire ou prévenir de telles interférences, ne placez pas le socle du téléphone sans fil près ou
sur un téléviseur ou magnétoscope. S’il y a présence de parasites, il est conseillé d’éloigner
le téléphone sans fil du téléviseur ou du magnétoscope afin de réduire possiblement les
• Piles rechargeables : Manipulez les piles avec soin afin de ne pas les court-circuiter avec des
bagues, bracelets ou clés. Les piles ou le conducteur peut surchauffer et causer des blessures.
Respectez la polarité adéquate entre la pile et le chargeur.
• Les bloc-piles rechargeables à l’hydrure métallique de nickel : Jetez ces blocs-piles de
manière écologique et sécuritaire. Ne les incinérez pas et ne les percez pas. Tel que les autres
piles de ce type, elles pourraient dégager une matière toxique qui peut causer des blessures
corporelles si elles sont brûlées ou percées.
