EQUIREMENTS
To properly connect your phone to your telephone lines, you will need an RJ11 type modular
phone jack, which might look like the one pictured here. If you don't have a modular jack, call

YSTEM
Your cordless phone uses a digital security system to provide protection against false ringing,
unauthorized access, and charges to your phone line.
When you place the handset in the base, the unit verifies its security code. After a power outage or
battery replacement, you should place the handset in the base for about 20 seconds to reset the code.
