E. If the product has been dropped or the cabinet has been damaged.
F. If the product exhibits a distinct change in performance.
13. Do not use the telephone to report a gas leak in the vicinity of the leak.
Additional battery safety precautions
Caution: To reduce the risk of fire or injury to persons by the battery, read and follow
these instructions:
1. Use only the appropriate type and size battery pack specified in the reference guide.
2. Do not dispose of the battery pack in a fire. The cell may explode.
3. Do not open or mutilate the battery pack. Released electrolyte is corrosive and
may cause damage to the eyes or skin. It may be toxic if swallowed.
4. Exercise care in handling the battery in order not to short the battery with
conducting materials such as rings, bracelets, and keys. The battery or conductor
may overheat and cause burns.
5. Charge the battery pack provided with or identified for use with this product only
in accordance with the instructions and limitations specified in the reference guide
provided for this product.
6. Observe proper polarity orientation between the battery pack and battery charger.
Cordless telephone privacy
Note: Cordless telephones are radio devices. Communications between the handset
and base of your cordless telephone are accomplished by means of radio
waves which are broadcast over the open airways. Because of the inherent
physical properties of radio waves, your communications can be received by
radio receiving devices other than your own cordless telephone unit.
Consequently, any communications using your cordless telephone may not
be private.

Important electrical considerations
Unplug all electrical appliances when you know an electrical storm is approaching.
Lightning can pass through your household wiring and damage any device connected
to it. This phone is no exception.
Warning: Please do not attempt to unplug any appliance during an electrical storm.
The FCC Wants You To Know
Changes or modifications to this product not expressly approved by the manufacturer,
or operation of this product in any way other than as detailed by the reference guide,
could void your authority to operate this product. The equipment cannot be used on
public coin phone service provided by the telephone company. Connection to party
line service is subject to state tariffs. (Contact the state public utility commission,
public service commission or corporation commission for information.)
Range
Your new phone is designed to achieve the maximum possible range by transmitting
and receiving according to the highest specifications set forth by the FCC. We have
rated this phone to operate at a maximum distance with the qualification that the
range depends upon the environment in which the telephone is used. Many factors
limit range, and it would be impossible to include all the variables in our rating.
The Maximum Range rating of this phone is meant to be used as a means of
comparison against other range claims.
Telephone Line Problems
The FCC has granted the telephone company the right to disconnect service in the
event that your phone causes problems on the telephone line. Also, the telephone
company may make changes in facilities and services which may affect the operation
of your unit. However, your telephone company must give adequate notice in writing
prior to such actions to allow you time for making necessary arrangements to
continue uninterrupted service.
If you are having trouble with your telephone service, you must first disconnect your
phone to determine if it is the cause of your problem. If you determine that it is the
cause, you must leave it disconnected until the trouble has been corrected.

Radio Interference
Radio interference may occasionally cause buzzing and humming in your cordless
handset, or clicking noises in the base. This interference is caused by an external
source such as a TV, refrigerator, vacuum cleaner, fluorescent lighting, or electrical
storm. Your unit is NOT DEFECTIVE. If these noises continue and are too distracting,
please check around your home to see what appliances may be causing the problem.
In addition, we recommend that the base not be plugged into a circuit that also
powers a major appliance because of the potential for interference. Be certain the
antenna is kept in the vertical position.
In the unlikely event that you consistently hear other voices or distracting
transmissions on your phone, you may be receiving radio signals from another
cordless telephone or other source of interference. If you cannot eliminate this type of
interference, you need to change to a different channel.
Finally, it should be noted that some cordless telephones operate at frequencies that
may cause interference to nearby TVs and VCRs. To minimize or prevent such
interference, the base of the cordless telephone should not be placed 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.
More Than One Cordless Telephone
If you want to use more than one cordless telephone in your home, they must
operate on different channels. Press the channel key to select a channel that provides
the clearest communication.

About the digital security code
This cordless telephone uses a digital security code to prevent unauthorized
access to your base unit. This security code prevents other cordless handsets
from making calls through your base unit.

From fully charged
• 7 hours continuous use.
• 14 days when the handset is in the standby mode.
When the battery charge becomes low
When the voltage of battery pack is very low and
needs to be charged, the phone eliminates
functions to save power. If the phone is not in use,
“Low Battery” flashes and none of the keys will
operate. If the phone is in use, "Low Battery" flashes and the handset beeps.
Complete your conversation as quickly as possible and return the handset to the base
unit for charging.
Note
Even when the battery pack is not being used, it will gradually discharge over a
long period.

Caller ID
When the telephone rings, the Caller ID feature allows you to view the caller’s name
and phone number on the display before you answer the phone.
The handset displays the phone number of the incoming call, the name, time, and the
number of calls. Additionally, you can dial the displayed number and store the
information for memory dialing.
Setting Caller ID options/Language
There are three Caller ID setup options available; they are Instant Talk, CIDCW (Caller
ID on Call Waiting), and Area Code.
Instant Talk allows you to answer the phone without pressing the TALK/FLASH
button. If the phone rings when Instant Talk is on, simply remove the handset from
the base and the phone automatically answers the call. If the phone rings when
Instant Talk is off, you must press TALK/FLASH to answer the call.

Waiting number. You must subscribe to CIDCW from your phone company in
order to use this feature.
If you enter a 3-digit area code number in the Area Code option, your local area
code does not appear in Caller ID messages. When reviewing Caller ID messages,
you will see only the local seven digit number. For calls received from outside your
local area code, you will see a full 10-digit number.
Note
If your calling area requires 10-digit dialing, do not program this option.
Language option can be used to choose the language of your display. You can select

Changing the digital security code
The digital security code is an identification code used to connect the handset and the
base unit. Normally, setting the code is not necessary.
The first time you charge your handset, the security code is automatically set. (See
page 8.) In the rare situation that you suspect another cordless telephone is using the
same security code, you can change the code as follows.

Remove the handset from the base unit.
Press and hold PAGE/FIND.
While the handset is emitting the paging
sound, place the handset on the base unit
holding PAGE/FIND. The paging tone stops.
Leave the handset on the base for more
than 3 seconds.
A random, new security code is set.
Note
If the handset battery pack is completely discharged or the battery pack is
removed, the digital security code will be lost. If this happens, a new security code
is set automatically next time the battery pack is charged.

If you don't have a standard wall plate, you can mount your phone directly to the wall.
Before doing this, consider the following:
• Avoid electrical cables, pipes, or other items behind the mounting location. That
could cause a hazard when inserting screws into the wall.
• Try to mount your phone within 5 feet of a working phone jack to avoid excessive
cord lengths.
• Make sure the wall material is capable of supporting the weight of the base
and handset.
• Use #10 screws (minimum length of 1-3/8 inches) with anchoring devices suitable
for the wall material where the base unit will be placed.

Insert two mounting screws into the
wall, (with their appropriate anchoring
device), 3-15/16 inches apart. Allow
about 1/8 of an inch between the
wall and screw heads for mounting
the phone.
