Congratulations on purchasing this extra GE cordless handset with Call
Waiting Caller ID. This telephone 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 instruction book. This telephone is a
multifunction product for use with Call Waiting and Caller ID services
available from your local telephone company.
Your Call Waiting Caller ID phone allows you to:
• view the name and telephone number of a caller while you are on
the phone (Call Waiting Caller ID).
• identify callers before you answer the phone.
• view the time and date of each incoming call.
• record up to 40 Caller ID messages sequentially in each handset
and the base.
• know who called while you are on the other line or when you
• screen unwanted calls, eliminate harassment from annoying
calls, or to get prepared before answering a call.
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.
Make sure your package includes the items shown here.
IMPORTANT: In order to use all of the features of this
telephone, you must subscribe to two separate services available
from your local telephone company: the standard Name/
Number Caller ID Service to know who is calling when the
phone rings and Call Waiting Caller ID Service to know who is
calling while you are on the phone.
INSTALLATION NOTE: Some cordless telephones operate at
frequencies that may cause interference to 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 ovens, or VCR. If such interference continues,
move the cordless telephone farther away from these appliances.
Certain other communications devices may also use the 2.4 GHz
