Avoid using a telephone during a thunderstorm. There might be a slight chance of electric
shock from lightning.
Do not use a telephone in the vicinity of a gas leak. Under certain circumstances, a spark
may be created when the adapter is plugged into the power outlet, or when the handset is
replaced in its cradle. This is a common event associated with the closing of any electrical
circuit. The user should not plug the phone into a power outlet, and should not put a charged
handset into the cradle, if the phone is located in an environment containing concentrations
of flammable or flame-supporting gases, unless there is adequate ventilation. A spark in such
an environment could create a fire or explosion. Such environments might include: medical
use of oxygen without adequate ventilation; industrial gases (cleaning solvents; gasoline
vapors; etc.); a leak of natural gas; etc.

Especially about cordless telephones
Privacy: The same features that make a cordless telephone convenient create some
limitations. Telephone calls are transmitted between the telephone base and the handset
by radio waves, so there is a possibility that your cordless telephone conversations could
be intercepted by radio receiving equipment within range of the cordless handset. For this
reason, you should not think of cordless telephone conversations as being as private as
those on corded telephones.
