Important safety information

Warning Icon
This symbol is to alert you to important operating or servicing instructions that may appear in this user’s manual. Always follow basic safety precautions when using this product to reduce the risk of injury, fire, or electric shock.

 

Safety information

  • Read and understand all instructions in the user’s manual. Observe all markings on the product.
  • Avoid using a telephone during a thunderstorm. There may 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. In an inadequately ventilated environment, the user should not plug the phone into a power outlet, nor put a charged handset into the cradle where there are concentrations of flammable or flame-supporting gases. A spark in such an environment could create a fire or explosion. Such environments may include: medical use of oxygen without adequate ventilation; industrial gases (cleaning solvents; gasoline vapors; etc.); a leak of natural gas; etc.
  • Do not use this product near water or when you are wet. For example, do not use it in a wet basement or shower, nor next to a swimming pool, bathtub, kitchen sink, and laundry tub. Do not use liquids or aerosol sprays for cleaning.
    If the product comes in contact with any liquid, unplug any line or power cord immediately. Do not plug the product back in until it has dried thoroughly.
  • Install this product in a protected location where no one can trip over any line or power cords. Protect cords from damage or abrasion.
  • If this product does not operate normally, see the Troubleshooting section of the online Complete user’s manual. If you cannot solve the problem, or if the product is damaged, refer to the Limited warranty section on pages 28 – 30. Do not open this product except as directed in your user’s manual. Opening the product or reassembling it incorrectly may expose you to hazardous voltages or other risks.
  • Replace batteries only as described in your user’s manual (page 5). Do not burn or puncture batteries — they contain caustic chemicals.
  • The power adapters are 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.

Warning Icon CAUTIONS:

  • Use only the power adapters provided with this product. To obtain a replacement, visit our website at www.telephones.att.com or call 1 (800) 222-3111. In Canada, dial 1 (866) 288-4268.
  • Use only the supplied rechargeable battery or replacement battery (model BT183342/BT283342). To order, visit our website at www.telephones.att.com or call 1 (800) 222-3111. In Canada, dial 1 (866) 288-4268.

CAUTION ICON
CAUTION:
To prevent risk of fire or battery explosion, replace with the correct battery type. Dispose of used batteries according to the instructions.

 

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.
  • 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.

Recycle Monogram
The RBRC Seal means that the manufacturer is voluntarily participating in an industry program to collect and recycle nickelmetal 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. 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:
Pacemaker patients:

  • 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.

ECO mode

This power conserving technology reduces power consumption for optimal battery performance. The ECO mode activates automatically whenever the handset is synchronized with the telephone base.

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.
