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.

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

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

Interference Information
This device complies with 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.
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits
for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules.
These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against
harmful interference in a residential installation.
This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency
energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with
the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio
communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference
will not occur in a particular installation.
If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or
television reception, which can be determined by turning the
equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the
interference by one or more of the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna (that is, the antenna
for radio or television that is “receiving” the interference).
• Reorient or relocate and increase the separation between the
telecommunications equipment and receiving antenna.
• Connect the telecommunications equipment into an outlet on
a circuit different from that to which the receiving antenna
is connected.
If these measures do not eliminate the interference, please
consult your dealer or an experienced radio/television technician
for additional suggestions. Also, the Federal Communications
Commission has prepared a helpful booklet, “How To Identify and
Resolve Radio/TV Interference Problems.” This booklet is available
from the U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, D.C. 20402.

• If you see a number with seven digits (i.e. 555-1234), then the call
is from within your area code. However, this does not guarantee

Speakerphone Basics
Speakerphone Location
Your phone features a speakerphone for ease of use and convenience
during a phone conversation. At any time during a conversation, you
can lift the handset to stop using the speakerphone. Likewise, when
you are using the handset, press the Speaker button and place the
handset in the cradle to switch to the speakerphone.
For best speakerphone performance, avoid the following:
• Areas with high background noise. (The microphone might pick up
these sounds and prevent the speakerphone from going into the
receiving mode when you finish talking.)
• Surfaces affected by vibration.
• Recessed areas such as in a corner, under a cupboard, or next to a
cabinet, which can generate an echo effect.
Speakerphone Use
Note the following guidelines when using the speakerphone:
• The speakerphone works similar to a two-way radio in that you
can only listen or talk at one time.
• Stay reasonably close to the phone so that you can be clearly
heard by the person to whom you are talking.
• You can adjust the speaker volume by pressing the volume button
continuously or pressing the Review 5 or 6 buttons after
pressing the Volume button.
• The speakerphone indicator light comes on when the
speakerphone is in use.
NOTE: Batteries must be installed for the speakerphone to operate.
Telephone Basics
You can use the telephone by speaking into and listening through
the handset, or by using the Speakerphone feature. For all
operations, either Line 1 or 2 button must be pressed. Do not press
both buttons down at the same time.
