Information about Caller ID with Call Waiting
This product has a Caller ID with Call Waiting feature that works with
services from your local phone service provider.
Caller ID with Call Waiting lets you see who is calling before you
answer the phone, even when you’re on another call.
You may need to change your phone service to use this
feature. Contact your phone 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, and 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 these services 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.

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 and base
can communicate over only a certain
distance — which can vary with the
locations of the base and handset, the
weather, 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 cordless 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.
If you move out of range during
a phone conversation, you might
hear noise or interference. To improve
reception, move closer to the base.
You can use this phone with regular
Caller ID service, and 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 without
pressing OFF/CLEAR, your phone 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 29, for more details about how
these features work.

How Caller ID works
If you subscribe to Caller ID service provided by your
local phone company, information about each caller will
be displayed at both the cordless handset and the base
after the first or second ring.
CHRIS WILSON
*
908-555-4321
8/12 10:06AM
With most incoming calls, the screen shows the name
of the caller (up to 15 alphanumeric characters including spaces) in the top row, and the caller's telephone
number, including the area code (up to 11 digits including area code) in the second row. The third row shows
the date and time of the call, the total number of Caller
ID entries already stored in the handset memory, as
well as the low-battery icon if the battery is low. The
low battery icon will be displayed if the battery on the
handset is low.
If the caller has made 2 or more consecutive calls, the
repeat tag (*) will be displayed in the top right corner of
the screen.
Caller ID and Call Waiting Functions
There may be a charge for the caller ID and call waiting
services provided by your local telephone company.
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, or
• you currently do not have Caller ID or Call Waiting
services.
29
Caller ID
Operation
You can use this telephone with regular Caller ID service, and 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.
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.
There are also occasions when other information or no
information is displayed for various reasons:
On-Screen Message
Reason
PRIVATE NAME
Caller prefers to remain anonymous.
PRIVATE CALLER
Caller's name and telephone number are
not revealed at caller's request.
UNKNOWN NAME
Your local telephone company is unable
to determine the caller's name.
UNKNOWN CALLER
Your local telephone company is unable
to determine the caller's name and telephone number. Long-distance calls from

Memory Capacity
NOTE: The cordless handset
and base CID logs are not shared.
Action taken on one will not affect

Each cordless handset or the base has its own and
separate Call Log memory. Each can store up to 30
CID records respectively. These numbers are available
for subsequent retrieval or for saving into the internal
directory for long-term storage until they are deleted.
NOTE: Only the cordless
handset will show the order of the
call in call history.
Caller information is stored chronologically with the latest call being assigned the next highest numerical value,
i.e. if there are already 15 calls logged into the CID
Memory, the next incoming call will be Call No. 16.
Reviewing the CID Memory
• Press CIDV on the base unit or the cordless handset
to activate the CID Memory record on the respective unit.
• Press the two arrow keys (CIDV and DIR^on the
base unit or on the cordless handset) to scroll
through the incoming records to review incoming
calls and check for missed calls.
• Consecutive incoming calls originating from the same
telephone number are identified by an asterisk at the
top right corner of the screen and will be counted as
one call in the CID memory.
• When there are already 30 entries in the CID
Memory, the next incoming call will automatically
cause the oldest entry to be deleted from the CID
Memory of the handset (or base).

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
Nickel-Metal 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 8BATTERY 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.
