The product will be returned to you promptly, at no charge for repair.

What position should I set my speakerphone to for maximum performance?

Your speakerphone should be six to eight inches away from your desk edge, This will allow the speaker phone to pick up your voice much clearer. Face your speakerphone and stay within arms length when talking. Avoid using speakerphones in extremely noisy enviroments. Finally, find your speakerphone volume and slowly try moving it to find the best setting for your conversation. The best setting is usually not all the way to the high or low setting. This, however, can vary from call to call.

How do I clean my telephone?

Never spray cleaner directly on the telephone. The liquid may drip into the telephone and damage the electronic parts. We recommend the liquid cleaner be sprayed onto a cotton cloth. Avoid using abrasive cleaners or bleach as they damage the plastic surface of your product.
