AT&T EL52303 Cordless Telephone User Manual

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.
