INTRODUCTION

Your Caller ID phone stores and displays specific information, provided by your local telephone company, to subscribers of Caller ID or similar caller identification services. You must subscribe to one of these services in order to use this unit.

Your Caller ID phone enables you to:

Identify callers before you answer the phone.

View the time and date of each incoming call.

Record up to 50 Caller ID messages sequentially.

Know who called while you were away.

To get the most from your new phone, we suggest that you take a few minutes right now to read through this user's guide.

IMPORTANT: In order to use this unit, you must subscribe to either the standard Name/Number Caller ID Service or Caller ID with Call Waiting

Service. To know who is calling while you are on the phone, you must subscribe to Caller ID with Call Waiting Service.

IMPORTANT: Because cordless phones operate on electricity, you should have at least one phone in your home that isnt cordless, in case the power in your home goes out.

BEFORE YOU BEGIN

PARTS CHECKLIST

Make sure your package includes the items shown here.

Telephone line cord

Mounting bracket

VOICE MAIL

AC power supply

MODULAR JACK REQUIREMENTS

You need an RJ11 type modular jack, which is the most common type of phone jack and might look like the one pictured here. If you dont have a modular jack, call your local phone company to find out how to get one installed.

INSTALLATION NOTE: Some cordless telephones operate at frequencies that may cause interference to nearby TVs and VCRs. To minimize or prevent such interference, the base of the cordless telephone should not be placed near or on top of a TV or VCR. If such interference continues, move the cordless telephone farther away from the TV or VCR.

DIGITAL SECURITY SYSTEM

Your cordless phone uses a digital security system to provide protection against false ringing, unauthorized access, and charges to your phone line.

When you place the handset in the base, the unit verifies its security code.

After a power outage or battery replacement, you should place the handset in the base for about 20 seconds to reset the code.

DESKTOP INSTALLATION

NOTE: For desktop charging only, the handset is able to charge facing up or down.

1. Make sure mounting bracket is securely fastened.

2. Place the handset in the base.

3. Plug the power supply cord into the base and then into an AC outlet.

The CHARGE indicator comes on indicating that the battery is charging.

Allow the phone to charge for 12 hours before using the first time. If you don't charge the phone properly (for 12 hours) when you first set up the phone, perfomance of the battery will be compromised.

4. After charging, connect the telephone cord to the phone and then to the wall jack.

NOTE : The phone automatically defaults to touch-tone dialing. To change to pulse (rotary) dialing, see Tone/Pulse Dialing. If you dont know which type of service you have, check with the phone company.

CAUTION: Use only the Thomson 5-2470 power supply that came with this unit.

Using other power supplies may damage the unit.

WALL MOUNT INSTALLATION

Because it is necessary to charge the handset for 12 hours prior to connecting the phone for use the first time, it is better to leave the unit on a flat surface during initial charge before attempting to hang it on the wall.

VOICE MAIL

1. Remove the handset hook; turn it upside down, and put it back in the slot. You need to do this so the handset doesn't fall out of the base when it is on the wall.

2. Place the handset in the base.

3. Connect the power supply adapter into the base and then into an AC outlet.

VOICE MAIL

The CHARGE indicator comes on indicating that the battery is

Allow the phone to charge for

12 hours before using the first time. If you don't charge the phone properly (for 12 hours) when you first set up the phone, perfomance of the battery will be compromised.

Instructions continued on next page.

5. After charging, remove and reattach the mounting bracket by inserting the two tabs at the top and then snapping the tab at the bottom into place.

6. Plug the phone line cord into the phone jack on the back of the unit and then into the wall jack.
