RD-1 Ring Detector False Ring Work-around

The RD-1 cable/mic is a sound vibration detector, and independent of the Headset-to-Phone EHS functionality. So long as it is connected to the wireless headset base, and the “mic” is mounted on the phone on or near the phone speaker, it can cause the headset to produce the “incoming call” alert, even when it is resting on the charging cradle. When in “Speaker” mode, the voice signal coming through the speaker can cause the Wireless Headset “incoming call” alert to activate.

Work-around Unplug the RD-1 from the Wireless Headset base if you are using the Speaker phone setting for a prolonged period.
