1User’s Manual

You must have a modular telephone jack and an electrical outlet not controlled by a wall switch near where you’re installing the phone.

The total length of telephone wiring used in this system is important. If the total length of telephone wiring is more than

600 feet, you may need to use a special filter device. You can call 1 800 222–3111 for information about this filter. You’ll need to contact a professional to install this filter.

Identify the number of phone lines you’ll use.

Plan the layout of your phone system.

All connected phones must have the same Line 1 phone number for the Intercom and Page features to work.

Assign a different Intercom Extension Number (11 through 22) to each system phone. You’ll need to do this individually at each telephone.

Decide if you want a private line. A private line does not appear on all connected phones.

Choose your setting for each feature. You will need to program the features during installation (see “Features List”).

INSTALLATION

NOTE: If you are installing multiple phones in your telephone system, you must install and program one set at a time. If more than one extension is assigned the same extension number, a repeating short ring (error ring) will sound at all extensions. Reassign extension numbers, being sure that each extension has a different number from 11 to 22 (see “Assign an Extension Number to Your Phone” in FEATURE SET UP).

Table/Desk Installation

NOTE: The battery retains telephone memory in the event of a power failure. If power fails and a working battery is installed, all four lines of this phone will work only to answer calls with the handset or headset, and dial calls using the key pad and the Speed Dial or Redial features. No other features will work until power is restored.
