I am trying to find a FULL manual for the geemarc amplidect 295 phone and am not being very successful. The quick guide is OK but does have its limitations. for e.g. what is meant by "out of range"?

Hi Mr.Roberts,

We do have the full 28-page version of the user manual available on our product page, which can be found by clicking the AmpliDECT 295 image above.

"Out of range" in this case refers to the handset being too far away from the base. The range of the handset will vary based on factors such as thickness of walls, building materials etc. We normally advise that you can expect up to a 50 meter range indoors, and up to 300 meters of range when used outdoors in an open space.
