Information about caller ID with call waiting
This product has a caller ID with call waiting feature that works with service from
your local telephone service provider.
Caller ID with call waiting lets you see who is calling before answering the phone, even
when you’re on another call.
You may need to change your telephone service to use this feature. Contact
your telephone service provider 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 don’t subscribe to any caller ID or call waiting services.
You can use this product with regular caller ID service, or you can use this product’s
other features without subscribing to either caller ID or combined caller ID with call
waiting service.
There are fees for caller ID services, and they may not be available in all areas.
Depending on your service, you may see the caller’s number, or the caller’s name and
number. This product can provide information only if both you and the caller are in areas
offering caller ID service, and if both telephone companies use compatible equipment.
The time and date are sent by the service provider along with the call information.

(handset 2, handset 3, or handset 4). You can register a maximum of four handsets.
The E5927B has two handsets automatically registered as handsets 1 and 2. You can
register two additional handsets, which will then be assigned as numbers 3 and 4.
The E5937B/E1937B has three handsets automatically registered as handsets 1, 2
and 3. You can register one additional handset, which will then be assigned as number 4.

About caller identification
Telephone operating range
Caller ID with call waiting features in
this telephone let you see who’s calling before you answer the phone, even
when you’re on another call. These
features require services provided by
your local telephone company.
This cordless telephone operates with
the maximum power allowed by the
Federal Communications Commission
(FCC). Even so, the handset(s) and
base can communicate over only a certain distance — which can vary with
the locations of the telephone base
and handset(s), the weather, the layout,
and the construction of your home or
office.
Contact your telephone service provider if:
• You have both caller ID and call
waiting, but as separate services
(you may need combined service).
If you receive a call while you
are out of range, the handset might
not ring — or if it does ring, the call
might not connect when you press
PHONE/FLASH Move closer to the
base, then press PHONE/FLASH to
answer the call.
• You have only caller ID service, or
only call waiting service.
• You don’t subscribe to any caller ID
or call waiting services.
You can use this telephone with regular caller ID service, or you can use its
other features without subscribing to
either caller ID or combined caller ID
with call waiting service. There may be
fees for these services, and they may
not be available in all areas.
If you move out of range during a
telephone conversation, you might
hear noise or interference. To improve
reception, move closer to the base.
If you move out of range without
pressing OFF/CLEAR, your telephone
will be left off the hook. To hang
up properly, walk back toward the
telephone base, periodically pressing
OFF/CLEAR until the call is disconnected.
Caller ID features will work only if
both you and the caller are in areas
offering caller ID service, and if both
telephone companies use compatible
equipment.
See caller ID operation, beginning on
page 27, for more details about how
these features work.

While an entry is displayed in the directory, you can

The directory will display the first name beginning with
the first letter associated with a certain key (if there is
such a name entry).
NOTES:
1. Of the dial pad or quick search keys (2-9), each key is associated with
three letters, please refer to page 23 for details.
2. If there is no name entry matching the first letter of the key, the directory
will display a name entry that matches the second letter of the key. If you
have more than one name entry that begins with the same first letter,
only by scrolling through the entire first letter entries then you can access
the name entries which start with the second letter of the same key. For
example, if you have name entries Jennifer, Jessie, Kevin and Linda in the
directory, pressing the dial pad key 5 (JKL) once will show Jennifer, twice
for Jessie, three times Kevin and four times Linda. If you press 4 (GHI), if
there is no name entry which matches those letters, the directory will show
Jennifer because it is the name entry which matches the next available
letter (J) in the directory.

Appendix
Important safety instructions
Especially about cordless telephones
• Privacy: The same features that make a cordless phone convenient create some
limitations. Telephone calls are transmitted between the base and the handset by
radio waves, so there is a possibility that your cordless phone conversations could
be intercepted by radio receiving equipment within range of the cordless handset.
For this reason, you should not think of cordless phone conversations as
being as private as those on corded phones.
• Electrical power: The base unit 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 handset if the base unit is
unplugged or switched off, or if the electrical power is interrupted.
• Potential TV interference: Some cordless telephones operate at frequencies that
may cause interference to TVs and VCRs. To minimize or prevent such interference,
do not place the base unit 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 will often reduce or eliminate the interference.
• Rechargeable batteries: This product contains either nickel-cadmium or nickelmetal hydride rechargeable batteries. Exercise care in handling batteries in order
not to short the battery 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-cadmium rechargeable batteries: Must be recycled or disposed of
properly. Do not dispose of in household garbage. Do not burn or puncture. Like
other batteries of this type, if burned or punctured, they could release caustic material which could cause injury.
The RBRC™ Seal means that the manufacturer is voluntarily participating in an industry program to collect
and recycle nickel-cadmium rechargeable batteries when taken out of service within the United States.
These batteries may be taken to a participating local retailer of replacement batteries or recycling center. Or you may call
1 (800) 8 BATTERY for locations accepting spent nickel-cadmium Batteries. Nickel-metal hydride rechargeable batteries: Dispose of these batteries in a safe manner. Do not burn or puncture. Like other batteries of this type, if burned or
punctured, they could release caustic material which could cause injury.
• Nickel-metal hydride rechargeable batteries: Dispose of these batteries in a
safe manner. Do not burn or puncture. Like other batteries of this type, if burned or
punctured, they could release caustic material which could cause injury.

Precautions for users of implanted cardiac pacemakers
Cardiac pacemakers (applies only to 900 MHz 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 had recommended to physicians that:
Pacemaker patients
• Should keep wireless phones at least six inches from the pacemaker.
• Should NOT place wireless phones directly over the pacemaker, such as in a breast
pocket, when it is turned ON.
• Should use the wireless phone at the ear opposite the pacemaker.
WTR’s evaluation did not identify any risk to bystanders with pacemakers from other
persons using wireless phones.
