about cordless telephones
• • • • • Privacy: The same features that make a cordless telephone convenent create some lmtatons. Telephone calls are transmtted between the telephone base and the cordless handset by rado waves, so there s a possblty that the cordless telephone conversatons could be ntercepted by rado recevng equpment wthn range of the cordless handset. For ths reason, you should not thnk of cordless telephone conversatons as beng as prvate as those on corded telephones.

Calls cannot be made from the cordless handset f the telephone base s unplugged or swtched off, or f the electrcal power s nterrupted. Potential TV Interference: Some cordless telephones operate at frequences that may cause nterference to televsons and VCRs. To mnmze or prevent such nterference, do not place the telephone base of the cordless telephone near or on top of a TV or VCR. If nterference s experenced, movng the cordless telephone farther away from the TV or VCR wll often reduce or elmnate the nterference. rechargeable Batteries: Ths product contans ether Nckel-Cadmum or Nckel-Metal Hydrde rechargeable batteres. Exercse care n handlng batteres n order not to create a short crcut wth conductng materal such as rngs, bracelets, and keys. The battery or conductor may overheat and cause harm.
