NFORMATION
Your telephone equipment is approved for connection to the Public Switched Telephone Network and is in
compliance with parts 15 and 68, FCC Rules and Regulations and the Technical Requirements for Telephone
Terminal Equipment published by ACTA.
1 Notification to the Local Telephone Company
On the bottom of this equipment is a label indicating, among other information, the US number and Ringer
Equivalence Number (REN) for the equipment. You must, upon request, provide this information to your
telephone company.
The REN is useful in determining the number of devices you may connect to your telephone line and still
have all of these 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 5. 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.
A plug and jack used to connect this equipment to the premises wiring and telephone network must comply
with the applicable FCC Part 68 rules and requirements adopted by the ACTA. A compliant telephone cord
and modular plug is provided with this product. It is designed to be connected to a compatible modular jack
that is also compliant. See installation instructions for details.
Notes
This equipment may not be used on coin service provided by the telephone company.
Party lines are subject to state tariffs, and therefore, you may not be able to use your own telephone
equipment if you are on a party line. Check with your local telephone company.
Notice must be given to the telephone company upon permanent disconnection of your telephone from
your line.
If your home has specially wired alarm equipment connected to the telephone line, ensure the installation
of this product does not disable your alarm equipment. If you have questions about what will disable
alarm equipment, consult your telephone company or a qualified installer.
2 Rights of the Telephone Company
Should your equipment cause trouble on your line which may harm the telephone network, the telephone
company shall, where practicable, notify you that temporary discontinuance of service may be required. Where
prior notice is not practicable and the circumstances warrant such action, the telephone company may
temporarily discontinue service immediately. In case of such temporary discontinuance, the telephone company
must: (1) promptly notify you of such temporary discontinuance; (2) afford you the opportunity to correct the
situation; and (3) inform you of your right to bring a complaint to the Commission pursuant to procedures set
forth in Subpart E of Part 68, FCC Rules and Regulations.
The telephone company may make changes in its communications facilities, equipment, operations or procedures
where such action is required in the operation of its business and not inconsistent with FCC Rules and
Regulations. If these changes are expected to affect the use or performance of your telephone equipment, the
telephone company must give you adequate notice, in writing, to allow you to maintain uninterrupted service.

Congratulations on purchasing this Call Waiting Caller ID phone system with UVMI.
This phone has been designed to be simple to use, however, you can reach its full
potential more quickly by taking a few minutes to read this User’s Guide.
This system is a multifunction product for use with the Call Waiting Caller ID and
Universal Voice Mail (UVMI) services available from your local telephone company.
To use all of the features of this system, you must subscribe to the following services
available from your local telephone company:
• the standard name/number Caller ID service to identify and screen callers when
the phone rings or know who called while you were away
• Call Waiting Caller ID service to view the name and telephone number of an
incoming call while you are on the phone
• Universal Voice Mail Indicator (UVMI) to receive voice mail messages
The system allows you to:
• view the name and number of each incoming call
• view the time and date of each call
• eliminate harassment from annoying calls, or get prepared before answering a call
• record up to 40 Caller ID messages sequentially
IMPORTANT: Because cordless phones operate on electricity, you should have
at least one phone in your home that isn’t cordless, in case the power in your
home goes out.
