About caller ID
If you subscribe to caller ID service from your local telephone company, this feature displays the
name and telephone number of the caller before answering a call (even when you are on another
call). The caller ID features of this product will work only if you subscribe to caller ID service and
both you and the caller are in areas offering caller ID service, and if both telephone companies use
compatible equipment.
Contact your local telephone company 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 do not subscribe to caller ID or call waiting services but wish to try them.
There may be fees for these services, and they may not be available in all areas.
This product can be used without subscribing to either caller ID or combined caller ID with call waiting
service, although the caller ID features of this product will not function.

• Make sure there is a dial tone before dialing. It is normal if the cordless handset takes a second
or two to synchronize with the telephone base before producing a dial tone. Wait an extra
second before dialing.
• Make sure the telephone is set to the correct dial type (pulse dial or tone dial) for the service in
your area. See Dial type section on page 12 to set the dial type.
• If the other telephones in your home are having the same problem, the problem is in the wiring
or local service. Contact your local telephone company (charges may apply).
• Eliminate any background noise. Noise from a television, radio, or other appliances may cause
the telephone not to dial out properly. If you cannot eliminate the background noise, first try
muting the cordless handset before dialing, or dialing from another room in your home with
less background noise.

There is noise
or interference
during a telephone
conversation.
• The handset may be out of range. Move it closer to the telephone base.
• Appliances or other cordless telephones plugged into the same circuit as the telephone base
can cause interference. Try moving the appliance or telephone base to another outlet.
• Other electronic products can cause interference to your cordless telephone. Try installing your
telephone as far away as possible from the following electronic devices: wireless routers, radios,
radio towers, pager towers, cellular telephones, digital telephones, intercoms, room monitors,
televisions, VCRs, personal computers, kitchen appliances, and other cordless telephones.
• If your telephone is plugged in with a modem or a surge protector, plug the telephone (or
modem/surge protector) into a different location. If this solves the problem, re-locate your
telephone or modem farther apart from each other, or use a different surge protector.
• The layout of your home or office might be limiting the operating range. Try moving the telephone
base to another location, preferably a higher location for better reception.
• Disconnect the telephone base from the modular jack and plug in a corded telephone. If calls
are still not clear, the problem is probably in the wiring or local service. Contact the local
telephone company (charges may apply).
• If the other telephones in your home are having the same problem, the problem is in the wiring
or local service. Contact the local telephone company (charges may apply).
• Do you have DSL service? If yes, you need to have a DSL filter installed at every telephone jack
that has a telephone connected to it. Contact your DSL service provider for filter information.

Maintenance
Taking care of your telephone
Your cordless telephone contains sophisticated electronic parts, so it must be treated with care.
Avoid rough treatment
Place the handset down gently. Save the original packing materials to protect your telephone if you ever need to ship it.
Avoid water
Your telephone can be damaged if it gets wet. Do not use the handset outdoors in the rain, or handle it with wet hands. Do not install the telephone base near a
sink, bathtub or shower.
Electrical storms
Electrical storms can sometimes cause power surges harmful to electronic equipment. For your own safety, take caution when using electric appliances during storms.
Cleaning your telephone
Your telephone has a durable plastic casing that should retain its luster for 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.
Remember that electrical appliances can cause serious injury if used when you are wet or standing in water. If the telephone base 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.

About cordless telephones
•
•
•
•
•
Privacy: The same features that make a cordless telephone convenient create some limitations. Telephone calls are transmitted between the telephone base and
the cordless handset by radio waves, so there is a possibility that the cordless telephone conversations could be intercepted by radio receiving equipment within
range of the cordless handset. For this reason, you should not think of cordless telephone conversations as being as private as those on corded telephones.
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 cordless 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 televisions 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 create a short circuit 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-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.
