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
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
rence, 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.
