many years. Clean it only with a soft cloth slightly dampened with water or a mild
soap. Do not use excess water or cleaning solvents of any kind.
Additional Information
Remember that electrical appliances can cause serious injury if used
when you are wet or standing in water. If your base unit should fall into
water, DO NOT RETRIEVE IT UNTIL YOU UNPLUG THE POWER CORD
AND TELEPHONE LINE CORDS FROM THE WALL. Then pull the unit
out by the unplugged cords.

Additional Information
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.
The equipment has been tested and found to comply with part 15 of the FCC rules.
These limits are designed 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

television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and
on, the user is encouraged to try and 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 or on a circuit different from that to which
the receiver is connected.
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
To ensure safety of users, the FCC has established criteria for the amount of radio

FCC Part 68 and ACTA
If this equipment was approved for connection to the telephone network prior to July 23,
2001, it complies with Part 68 of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)
rules. If the equipment was approved after that date, it complies with the Part 68 rules
and with Technical Requirements for Connection of Equipment to the Telephone
Network adopted by the Administrative Council for Terminal Attachments (ACTA). We
are required to provide you with the following information.
1. Product identifier and REN information
The label on the back or bottom of this equipment contains, among other things,
an identifier indicating product approval and the Ringer Equivalence Number

request. For equipment approved prior to July 23, 2001, the product identifier is
preceded by the phrase “FCC Reg No.” and the REN is listed separately. For
equipment approved after that date, the product identifier is preceded by “US”
and a colon (:), and the REN is encoded in the product identifier without a
decimal point as the sixth and seventh characters following the colon. For
example, the product identifier US:AAAEQ03T123XYZ would indicate an REN
of 0.3. The REN is used to determine how many devices you may connect to
your telephone line and still have them ring when you are called. In most, but
not all areas, the sum of all RENs should be five (5.0) or less. You may want to
contact your local telephone company for more information.
The plug and jack used to connect this equipment to the premises wiring and the
telephone network must comply with the applicable Part 68 rules and technical
requirements adopted by ACTA. A compliant telephone cord and modular plug
is provided with this product. It is designed to be connected to a compatible
modular jack that is also compliant. An RJ11 jack should normally be used for
connecting to a single line and an RJ14 jack for two lines. See Installation
Instructions in the user’s manual. This equipment may not be used with Coin
Telephone Lines or with Party Lines. If you have specially wired alarm dialing
equipment connected to your telephone line, ensure the connection of this

a We recommend that you also write the telephone number on the directory
card, so that you can still dial the emergency number manually if the memory
dialing feature doesn’t work.
b This feature is provided only as a convenience, and the manufacturer assumes no responsibility for customer reliance upon the memory feature.
c Testing the emergency telephone numbers you have stored is not recommended.
However, if you do make a call to an emergency number:
• You must remain on the line and briefly explain the reason for the call
before hanging up.
• Programming/testing of emergency numbers should be performed during

IC (Industry Canada)
This telephone is registered for use in Canada.
The term “IC:” before the radio certification number only signifies that Industry
Canada technical specifications were met.
40
FCC, ACTA and IC Regulations
Notice:
This equipment meets the applicable Industry Canada Terminal Equipment
Technical Specifications. This is confirmed by the registration number. The
abbreviation, IC, before the registration number signifies that registration was
performed based on a Declaration of Conformity indicating that Industry Canada
technical specifications were met. It does not imply that Industry Canada
approved the equipment.
Notice:
The Ringer Equivalence Number (REN) for this terminal equipment is 0.1. The
REN assigned to each terminal equipment provides an indication of the maximum
number of terminals allowed to be connected to a telephone interface. The
termination on an interface may consist of any combination of devices subject
only to the requirement that the sum of the Ringer Equivalence Numbers of all
the devices does not exceed five.
Before installing this equipment, user should ensure that it is permissible to be
connected to the facilities of the local telecommunications company. The equipment
must also be installed using an acceptable method of connection. The customer should
be aware that compliance with the above conditions may not prevent degradation of
services in some situations.
Repairs to certified equipment should be made by an authorized Canadian
maintenance facility designated by the supplier. Any repairs or alterations made by the
user to this equipment, or equipment malfunctions, may give the telecommunications
company cause to request the user to disconnect the equipment.
Users should ensure for their own protection that the electrical ground connections of
the power utility, telephone lines and internal metallic water pipe system, if present, are
connected together. This precaution may be particularly important in rural areas.
Users should not attempt to make such connections themselves, but should contact
the appropriate electrical inspection authority, or electrician, as appropriate.
Your Cordless Phone is designed to operate at the maximum power allowed by
the FCC and IC. This means your handset and base unit can communicate only
over a certain distance - which will depend on the location of the base unit and
handset, weather, and the construction and layout of your home or office.
