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.
Make sure your package includes the items shown here.
AC power supply
To properly connect your phone to your telephone lines, you will need an RJ11 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.
We bring good things to life.
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.
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.
