Important Safety Instructions


Instructions Safety Battery


Cordless phones such as this one require AC power to operate. When the AC power is off, you cannot dial out or receive incoming calls using your phone. To be safe, you should also have a phone that does not need AC power to operate (not a cordless phone) so you can still make and receive calls if there is an AC power failure.

When AC power is lost, the phone loses the security access-protectioncode connection between the base and the handset. When power is restored, put the handset on the base briefly to restore this connection.

To reduce the risk of fire or injury to persons, read and follow these instructions.

Use only the required size and type of batteries.

Do not dispose of batteries in a fire. They can explode. Check with local codes for possible special disposal instructions.

Do not open or mutilate batteries. Released electrolyte is corrosive, can cause damage to the eyes or skin, and can be toxic if swallowed.

Be careful when handling batteries in order not to short them with conducting materials such as rings, bracelets, and keys. The battery or conductor can overheat and cause burns.

Charge the batteries provided with or identified for use with this product only in accordance with the instructions and limitations specified in this manual.

Observe proper polarity orientation between the batteries and battery charger.

Do not mix old and new batteries in this product.

Do not mix batteries of different sizes or from different manufacturers in this product.



We have designed your phone to conform to federal regulations and you can connect it to most phone lines. However, each device that you connect to the telephone line draws power from the line. We refer to this power draw as the phone’s ringer


equivalence number, or REN. The REN is on the bottom of your phone.

If you use more than one phone or other device on the line, add up all the RENs. If the total is more than five (three in rural areas), your phones might not ring. If ringer operation is impaired, remove one of the devices from the line.

The digital answering system stores up to 16 minutes of messages on a computer chip and records each message’s day and time. This gives you advanced capabilities over tape-basedanswering machines:

You can delete individual messages and save the rest.

There are no tapes to bother with and no tape mechanisms to wear out.

The remote operation feature lets you operate your answering system from a touch-tonephone (or from a rotary phone with a pocket tone dialer).


Before using your phone, carefully peel the protective film off the display. The film protects the handset window during shipment and is not necessary for use.


You can place the phone on a desk or table, mount it on a standard wall plate, or directly on a wall. Choose a location that is:

near an AC outlet

near a modular telephone line jack

out of the way of normal activities





You must use a

!Class 2 power

source that supplies 9V DC and delivers at least 350 mA. Its center tip must be set to positive and its plug must fit the phone's DC IN 9V jack. The supplied adapter meets these specifications. Using an adapter that does not meet these specifications could damage the phone or the adapter.

Always connect the AC adapter to the phone before you connect it to AC power. When you finish, disconnect the adapter from AC power before you disconnect it from the phone.

away from electrical machinery, electrical appliances, metal walls or filing cabinets, wireless intercoms, alarms, and room monitors

away from other cordless phones

You can try different locations to see which provides the best performance. .#

Your telephone connects directly to a modular telephone line jack. If your telephone wiring does not have a modular jack, you can update the wiring yourself using jacks and adapters (available at your local RadioShack store or online at, or have the telephone company update the wiring for you. You must use compatible modular jacks that are compliant with Part 68 of FCC Rules. The USOC number of the jack to be installed is RJ11C (RJ11W for a wall plate).


1.Plug one end of the supplied long modular cord into the TEL LINE jack on the base’s back.

2.Plug the modular cord’s other end into a modular telephone line jack.

3.Insert the supplied AC adapter’s barrel plug into the DC IN 9V jack on the back.
