NTRODUCTION
Your Cordless Telephone is designed to give you flexibility in use and high quality performance. To
get the most from your new cordless telephone, we suggest that you take a few minutes right now to
read through this instruction manual.
IMPORTANT: Because cordless phones operate on electricity, you should have at least one phone in your
home that is not cordless, in case the power in your home goes out.
CAUTION: When using telephone equipment, there are basic safety instructions that should
always be followed. Refer to the IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS provided with this
product and save them for future reference.

EQUIREMENTS
To properly connect your phone to your telephone lines, you will need an RJ11 (CA11A) type
modular phone jack, which might look like the one pictured here. If you don't have a modular
jack, call your local phone company to find out how to get one installed.

ECURITY
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.
