One-TouchEmergency Dialing— lets you dial the emergency number preprogrammed into your phone, by briefly holding down the key.

Security Features — to prevent unauthorized phone use, you can set up to five different levels of call restrictions (to allow only incoming calls, for example) while still allowing calls to the preprogrammed emergency number.

Scratchpad Memory — lets you temporarily store a number (during a call, for example), then easily dial it or store it in memory.

Ample Talk and Standby Time — the supplied battery (fully charged) provides about 2 hours of talk time or 30 hours of standby time.

Vibration and Silent Alert Modes — let you set the phone to vibrate gently (instead of ring) when it receives a call, or make no sound or movement at all, to avoid disturbing others. See “Ringing Options” on Page 52.

Call Timers — lets you keep track of the individual and cumulative call times (air time) for each active number that you can reset at any time. Also includes a cumulative timer for both active numbers (cannot be reset).
