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 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 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, 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 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.

About caller identification
Telephone operating range
Caller ID with call waiting features
in this telephone lets 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 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 telephone conversation, you
might hear noise or interference.
To improve reception, move closer
to the base.
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.
If you move out of range without pressing OFF CLEAR, your
telephone will be left "off the
hook". To hang up properly, walk
back towards 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 log, beginning on
page 26, for more details about
how these features work.

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 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 handset if
the telephone base 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 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 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 them 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. Nickelmetal 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.
53
Appendix
Important safety instructions
• 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.
Especially about telephone answering systems
Two-way recording: This unit does not sound warning beeps to let the other
party know that the call is being recorded. To ensure that you are in compliance
with any federal or state regulations regarding recording a telephone call, you
should start the recording process and then inform the other party that you are
recording the call.
