Caller ID
About the caller ID
This telephone supports caller ID services that most telephone
service providers offer. Caller ID allows you to see the name,
number, date and time of calls. Depending on your service
subscription, you might see the caller’s number, or the caller’s
name and number from the telephone service provider after the
first or second ring. Caller ID information might not be available
for every incoming call. Callers may intentionally block their
names and/or telephone numbers.
This product can provide information only if both you and the
caller are in areas offering caller ID service and if both telephone
service providers use compatible equipment.
Information about caller ID with call waiting
Caller ID with call waiting lets you see the name and telephone
number of the caller before answering the telephone, and while
on another call.
It might be necessary to change telephone
NEW 001/090
service to use this feature. Contact your
LINE 1
telephone service provider if:
CHRISTINE SMITH
• You have both caller ID and call waiting,
8002223111

Caller ID
About the caller ID
There are fees for caller ID services. In addition, services may not
be available in all areas.
This product can provide information only if both you and the
caller are in areas offering caller ID service and if both
telephone service providers use compatible equipment. The time
and date, along with the call information, are from the telephone
service provider.
If you subscribe to caller ID service, this phone automatically
resets the time and date using the caller ID information from
the first incoming call after initial setup, or each time the power
resumes after a power outage.
If you have manually set the date and time of the deskset
this cordless handset is registered to before the first incoming
call, they will become the local date and time of the cordless
handset. The date and time won’t be updated by the caller ID
information of any incoming call afterward.
NOTE: You can use this product with regular caller ID service, or you can use
this product’s other features without subscribing to caller ID or combined
caller ID with call waiting service.

Caller ID
Caller ID information
How the caller ID information (call log) works
This cordless handset shares the caller ID memory with the
deskset it is registered to. The MS2015 deskset stores
caller ID information for the last 200 incoming calls in the
handset. Entries are stored in reverse chronological order. The
telephone deletes the oldest entry when the log is full to make
room for new calls.
Each extension has independent caller ID information. Deleting
the caller ID information on any one extension does not affect
the caller ID information on other extensions.
If you answer a call before the information appears on the
screen, it does not show in the caller ID information.
Review the caller ID information to determine who called, to
easily return the call, or to copy the caller’s name and number
into your directory.
The caller ID information includes the date, time, caller’s name
and telephone number.
Caller ID information appears on the screen as the telephone
rings, or until the caller hangs up, or until the call has been
answered at another extension, or until the call ends.
Appears when there are
new or missed calls.

Maintenance
Taking care of your telephone
•
Your cordless telephone contains sophisticated electronic parts, so you must
treat it with care.
•
•
•
Avoid rough treatment.
Place the corded handset down gently.
Save the original packing materials to protect your cordless telephone if you
ever need to ship it.
Avoid water
•
You can damage your cordless telephone if it gets wet. Do not use the corded
handset in the rain, or handle it with wet hands. Do not install the cordless
telephone 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 cordless 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.

•
•
•
Read and understand all instructions in the user’s manual. Observe all
markings on the product.
Avoid using a telephone during a thunderstorm. There may be a slight chance
of electric shock from lightning.
Do not use the telephone to report a gas leak in the vicinity of the leak. Under
certain circumstances, a spark may be created when the adapter is plugged
into the power outlet, or when the handset is replaced in its cradle. This is a
common event associated with the closing of any electrical circuit. The user
should not plug the phone into a power outlet, and should not put a charged
handset into the cradle, if the phone is located in an environment containing
concentrations of flammable or flame-supporting gases, unless there is
adequate ventilation. A spark in such an environment could create a fire or
explosion. Such environments might include: medical use of oxygen without
adequate ventilation; industrial gases (cleaning solvents; gasoline vapors; etc.);
a leak of natural gas; etc.
Do not use this product near water, or when you are wet. For example, do
not use it in a wet basement or shower, or next to a swimming pool, bathtub,
kitchen sink, or laundry tub. Do not use liquids or aerosol sprays for cleaning.
If the product comes in contact with any liquid, unplug any line or power cord
immediately. Do not plug the product back in until it has dried thoroughly.
Install this product in a protected location where no one can trip over any line
or power cords. Protect cords from damage or abrasion.
If this product does not operate normally, see the Troubleshooting section on

Appendix
Important safety information
Especially 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 handset by radio waves, so there is a possibility that
your 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 which is not controlled by a wall
switch. Calls cannot be made from the handset if the telephone base is
unplugged, 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 nickel-metal hydride
rechargeable batteries. Exercise care in handling batteries in order not to
create a short circuit with conductive 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.
The RBRC™ Seal means that the manufacturer is voluntarily
participating in an industry program to collect and recycle
nickel-metal hydride 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 Ni-MH batteries.

Important safety information
Precautions for users of implanted cardiac pacemakers
Cardiac pacemakers (applies only to 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 recommends to physicians that:
Pacemaker patients
• Should keep wireless telephones at least six inches from the pacemaker.
• Should NOT place wireless telephones directly over the pacemaker, such as in
a breast pocket, when it is turned ON.
• Should use the wireless telephone at the ear opposite the pacemaker.
WTR’s evaluation did not identify any risk to bystanders with pacemakers from
other persons using wireless telephones.
Especially about telephone answering systems
Two-way recording: This unit does not sound warning beeps to inform the other
party 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 conversation.
