Important product information
Especially about corded telephones
Electrical power: The telephone base must be connected to a working
electrical outlet. The electrical outlet should not be controlled by a wall switch.
Calls cannot be made from the handset if the telephone base is unplugged
or switched off, or if the electrical power is interrupted.
Power adapter: The power adapter is intended to be correctly oriented in a
vertical or floor mount position. The prongs are not designed to hold the
plug in place if it is plugged into a ceiling, under-the-table or cabinet outlet.
Especially about telephone answering systems
Two-way recording: This unit does not sound warning beeps to let the other
party know that the call is being recorded. To ensure that you are in compli-
ance 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 call.
