Your cordless telephone system with Caller ID and Call Waiting is designed to give
you flexibility in use and high quality performance. To get the most from your new
cordless telephone system, we suggest that you take a few minutes right now to
read through this instruction manual. This telephone is a multifunction product
for use with the Call Waiting and Caller ID services available from your local
telephone company. Your Caller ID Call Waiting phone allows you to:
• View the name and telephone number of a caller (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.
• Know who called while you are on the other line or when you were away.
• Screen unwanted calls, eliminate harassment from annoying calls, or to get
prepared before answering a call.
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 Caller
ID with Call Waiting Service to know who is calling while you are on the phone. 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.
Before You Begin

Parts Checklist

Make sure your package includes the items shown here.

Telephone Jack Requirements

To use this phone, you need an RJ11C type modular
telephone jack, which might look like the one pictured here,
installed in your home. If you don’t have a modular jack,
call your local phone company to find out how to get one

Digital Security System

Your cordless phone uses a digital security system to protect 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.
INSTALLATION NOTE: Some cordless telephones operate at frequencies
that 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 appliances. Certain other communications devices may also use the
2.4 GHz 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.
