Important safety information
Electrical power: The telephone base of this cordless telephone must be connected to a
working electrical outlet which is not controlled by a wall switch. Calls cannot be made
from the handset if the telephone base is unplugged, switched off or if the electrical
power is interrupted.
Potential TV interference: Some cordless telephones operate at frequencies that may
cause interference to TVs and VCRs. To minimize or prevent such interference, do not place
the telephone base of the cordless telephone near or on top of a TV or VCR. If interference
is experienced, moving the cordless telephone farther away from the TV or VCR will often
reduce or eliminate the interference.
Rechargeable batteries: This product contains nickel-metal hydride rechargeable batteries.
Exercise care in handling batteries in order not to create a short circuit with conductive
material such as rings, bracelets, and keys. The battery or conductor may overheat and cause
harm. Observe proper polarity between the battery and the battery charger.
Nickel-metal hydride rechargeable batteries: Dispose of these batteries in a safe manner.
Do not burn or puncture. Like other batteries of this type, if burned or punctured, they could
release caustic material which could cause injury.
The RBRC™ Seal means that the manufacturer is voluntarily participating in
an industry program to collect and recycle nickel-metal hydride rechargeable
batteries when taken out of service within the United States. These batteries
may be taken to a participating local retailer of replacement batteries or
recycling center. Or you may call 1 (800) 8-BATTERY for locations accepting
spent Ni-MH batteries.
Precautions for users of implanted cardiac pacemakers
Cardiac pacemakers (applies only to digital cordless telephones): Wireless Technology
Research, LLC (WTR), an independent research entity, led a multidisciplinary evaluation of the
interference between portable wireless telephones and implanted cardiac pacemakers. Supported
by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, WTR recommends to physicians that:
Should keep wireless telephones at least six inches from the pacemaker.
Should NOT place wireless telephones directly over the pacemaker, such as in a breast
pocket, when it is turned ON.
Should use the wireless telephone at the ear opposite the pacemaker.
WTR’s evaluation did not identify any risk to bystanders with pacemakers from other persons
using wireless telephones.
Especially about telephone answering systems
Two-way recording: This unit does not sound warning beeps to inform the other party that the
call is being recorded. To ensure that you are in compliance with any federal or state regulations
regarding recording a telephone call, you should start the recording process and then inform the
other party that you are recording the conversation.
