FCC Information

WARNING: Changes or modifications to this unit not expressly approved by Siemens Communication Devices could void the FCC
authority to operate the equipment. This includes the addition of any external antenna device.
This telephone system complies with Part 68 of the FCC rules. On the bottom of the base station is a label that contains, among other
information, the FCC Registration Number, Ringer Equivalence number (REN) and the Universal Service Order Code (USOC), which is RJ-11C,
for this equipment. You must, upon request, provide this information to your telephone company.
The REN is useful in determining the quantity of devices you may connect to your telephone line and still have all of those devices ring when
your telephone number is called. In most, but not all areas, the sum of the RENs of all devices connected to one line should not exceed five
(5.0). To be certain of the number of devices you may connect to your line, as determined by the REN, you should contact your local telephone
company to determine the maximum REN for your calling area.
If your telephone equipment causes harm to the telephone network, the telephone company may ask you to disconnect the system from the
line until the problem has been corrected or they may discontinue your service temporarily. If possible, they will notify you in advance. But if
advance notice isn't practical, you will be notified as soon as possible. You will be informed of your right to file a complaint with FCC.
Your telephone company may make changes in its facilities, equipment, operations, or procedures that could affect the proper functioning of
your telephone system. If they do, you will be notified in advance to give you an opportunity to maintain uninterrupted telephone service. If
you experience trouble with this telephone system, disconnect it from the network until the problem has been corrected or until you are sure
that the equipment is not malfunctioning.
This telephone system may not be used on coin service provided by the telephone company. Connection to party lines is subject to state
tariffs. Privacy of communications may not be ensured when using this phone.
This telephone system equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC
Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) This device must accept
any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation. These limits are designed to provide reasonable
protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. Some cordless telephones operate at frequencies that may cause
interference to nearby TV's and VCR's; to minimize or prevent such interference, the system base should not be placed near or on top of a TV or
VCR; and, if interference is experienced, moving the base farther away from the TV or VCR will often reduce or eliminate the interference.
However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this telephone system does cause harmful
interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the system off and on, the user is encouraged to try to
correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:
1. Increase the separation between the base station and receiver.
2. Connect the base station into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.
3. Consult the dealer or an experienced radio TV technician for help.
NOTICE TO HEARING AID WEARERS: This phone system is compatible with inductively coupled hearing aids.
POWER OUTAGE: In the event of a power outage, your cordless telephone will not operate. The cordless telephone requires electricity for
operation. You should have a telephone that does not require electricity available for use during power outages.
