We have designed your telephone to conform to federal regulations
and you can connect it to most telephone lines. However, each device
you connect to the phone line draws power from it. This power draw is
the device’s Ringer Equivalence Number, or REN. The REN is on the
bottom of your phone.
If you are using more than one phone or other device on the line, add
up all the RENs. If the total is more than five (or three in rural areas)
your phones might not ring. If ringer operation is impaired, remove one
of the devices from the line.
If your phone causes problems on the phone line, the telephone com-
pany can disconnect your service. The phone company tries to notify
you in advance. If advance notice is not practical, the telephone com-
pany notifies you as soon as possible and advises you of your right to
file a complaint with the FCC.
The phone company can also make changes to its lines, equipment,
operations, or procedures that could affect the phone’s operation. The
phone company notifies you in advance, so you can take the neces-
sary steps to prevent interruption of your phone service.
