• Identify callers before you answer the phone.
• View the time and date of each incoming call.
• Record up to 20 Caller ID messages sequentially.
• Know who called while you are on the other line or when you

INSTALLATION NOTE: Some cordless telephones operate at frequencies that
may cause or receive interference with nearby TVs, microwave ovens, 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, microwave oven, or VCR. If such
interference continues, move the cordless telephone farther away from these
appliances. Certain other communications devices may also use the 900 MHz
frequency for communication, and, if not properly set, these devices may
interfere with each other and/or your new telephone. If you are concerned
with interference, please refer to the owner's manual for these devices on how
to properly set channels to avoid interference. Typical devices that may use the
900 MHz frequency for communication include wireless audio/video senders,
wireless computer networks, multi-handset cordless telephone systems, and some
long-range cordless telephone systems.
