may cause or receive interference with 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 oven, or VCR. If such
interference continues, move the cordless telephone farther away from these

frequency for communication, and, if not properly set, these devices may
interfere with each other and/or your new telephone. If you are concerned
with interference, please refer to the owner’s manual for these devices on how
to properly set channels to avoid interference. Typical devices that may use the
2.4 GHz frequency for communication include wireless audio/video senders,
wireless computer networks, multi-handset cordless telephone systems, and some
long-range cordless telephone systems.
