The Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 makes it unlawful for any person to use a computer or other electronic device to send any

message via a telephone facsimile machine unless such message clearly contains in a margin at the top or bottom of each transmitted page or

on the first page of the transmission the following information:
(1) the date and time of transmission
(2) identification of either business, business entity or individual sending the message; and
(3) telephone number of either the sending machine, business, business entity or individual.
The Telephone Company may make changes in its communications facilities, equipment operations or procedures where such action is

reasonably required in the operation of its business and is not inconsistent with the rules and regulations in FCC Part 68. If such changes can

be reasonably expected to render any customer terminal equipment incompatible with telephone company communications facilities, or

require modification or alteration of such terminal equipment, or otherwise materially affect its use or performance, the customer shall be given

adequate notice in writing, to allow the customer an opportunity to maintain uninterrupted service


The Ringer Equivalence Number and FCC Registration Number for this machine may be found on the label located on the bottom or rear of

the machine. In some instances you may need to provide these numbers to the telephone company.
The Ringer Equivalence Number (REN) is a measure of the electrical load placed on the telephone line, and is useful for determining whether

you have “overloaded” the line. Installing several types of equipment on the same telephone line may result in problems making and receiving

telephone calls, especially ringing when your line is called. The sum of all Ringer Equivalence Numbers of the equipment on your telephone

line should be less than five in order to assure proper service from the telephone company. In some cases, a sum of five may not be usable on

your line. If any of your telephone equipment is not operating properly, you should immediately remove it from your telephone line, as it may

cause harm to the telephone network.

You should also know that:

Your machine is not designed to be connected to a digital PBX system.

If you intend to use a computer modem or fax modem on the same phone line as your machine, you may experience transmission and

reception problems with all the equipment. It is recommended that no other equipment, except for a regular telephone, share the line with

your machine.

If your area experiences a high incidence of lightning or power surges, we recommend that you install surge protectors for both the power

and the telephone lines. Surge protectors can be purchased from your dealer or telephone and electronic specialty stores.

When programming emergency numbers and/or making test calls to emergency numbers, use a non-emergency number to advise the

emergency service dispatcher of your intentions. The dispatcher will give you further instructions on how to actually test the emergency

user’s authority to operate this equipment. In the event that terminal equipment causes harm to the telephone network, the telephone

company should notify the customer that service may be stopped. However, where prior notice is impractical, the company may

temporarily cease service, providing that they:
a) promptly notify the customer.

b) give the customer an opportunity to correct the equipment problem.

c) inform the customer of the right to bring a complaint to the Federal Communication Commission pursuant to procedures set out in

FCC Rules and Regulations Subpart E of Part 68.
