VTech TL86009 Cordless Telephone User Manual

My calls cut in and out while I’m using my cordless handset.
Other electronic products such as HAM radios and other DECT
phones, can cause interference with your cordless phone. Try
installing your phone as far away as possible from these types
of electronic devices.
Do not install this phone near a microwave oven or on
the same electrical outlet. You may experience decreased
performance while the microwave oven is operating.
If you plug your phone in with a modem or surge protector,
plug the phone (or modem/surge protector) into a different
location. If this doesn’t solve the problem, relocate your
phone or modem farther apart from one another, or use a
different surge protector.
Relocate your telephone base to a higher location. The phone
may have better reception when installed in a high area.
If the other phones in your home are having the same
problem, the problem is in your wiring or local service.
Contact your telephone service provider (charges may apply).
Excessive background noise will cause a speakerphone to fade
in and out. Try controlling the background noise by turning off
any audio devices near the speakerphone. Also, try to avoid
interrupting the person at the other end of the conversation
while they are speaking. If background noise cannot be
controlled, you should stop speakerphone operation and
return to normal handset mode.
When using a speakerphone, controlling background noise
in your environment is essential. While you are listening to
your party, press the MUTE softkey to temporarily turn
microphone off. When it is
your turn to speak, remember to
press the MUTE softkey to turn the microphone on.
