may cause electric shock and/or excessive
heat resulting in a fire.
L Regularly remove any dust, etc. from the
AC adaptor/power plug by pulling it from the
power outlet, then wiping with a dry cloth.
Accumulated dust may cause an insulation
defect from moisture, etc. resulting in a fire.
L Unplug the product from power outlets if it
emits smoke, an abnormal smell, or makes
an unusual noise. These conditions can
cause fire or electric shock. Confirm that
smoke has stopped emitting and contact an
authorised service centre.
L Unplug from power outlets and never touch

L The use of excessive sound volume
through earphones, headphones, or
headsets may cause hearing loss.
L Do not place a handset on the base unit
with the headset jack cover opened.

GHz to 1.90 GHz, and the RF transmission
power is 250 mW (max.).)
L Do not use the product in health care

Using Caller ID service
Important:
L This unit is Caller ID compatible. To use
Caller ID features, you must subscribe to a
Caller ID service. Contact your service
provider/telephone company for details.
Caller ID features
When an outside call is being received, the
caller’s phone number is displayed.
Caller information for the last 50 callers is
logged in the caller list from the most recent
call to the oldest.
L If the unit cannot receive caller information,
the following is displayed:
– “Out of Area”: The caller dials from
an area which does not provide a Caller
ID service.
– “Private Caller”: The caller
requests not to send caller information.
L If the unit is connected to a PBX system,
caller information may not be properly
received. Contact your PBX supplier.
Missed calls
If a call is not answered, the unit treats it as a
missed call and y is displayed. This lets you
know if you should view the caller list to see
who called while you were away.
Even if only one missed call in the caller list is
viewed (page 32), y disappears from the
display. When you receive another new call, y
is displayed again.
Note:
L Even when there are unviewed missed
calls, y disappears from the standby
display if the following operation is
performed by one of the registered
handsets:
– Being replaced on the base unit or
charger.
– Pressing {ic}.
Phonebook name display
When caller information is received and it
matches a phone number stored in the
phonebook, the stored name in the phonebook
is displayed and logged in the caller list.
Category ringer tone
This feature can help you identify who is
calling by using different ringer tones for
different categories of callers. When adding an
entry to the phonebook, you can assign it to
the desired category (page 21). When a call is
received from a caller assigned to a category,
the ringer you selected for that category rings
after caller information is displayed.
If you select “Default Ringer”, the unit
uses the ringer tone you selected on page 26
when calls from this category are received.
The default setting is “Default Ringer”.

L To use the voice mail service (page 39)
provided by your service provider/
telephone company rather than the unit’s

service provider/telephone company,
please contact your service provider/
telephone company to deactivate your

If your service provider/telephone company
cannot do this:

activate the voice mail service provided
by your service provider/telephone
company before changing this setting.
– Change the number of rings of the voice
