A Uniden CSR I spoke to claimed it was illegal to use a wireless handset from the US in NZ. Does anyone know if this is correct?
There seems no way a cordless handset can send a power spike or similar down the phone line. The base unit is the only thing physically connected. The cordless handset itself connects (wirelessly) only with the base unit.
A PC with a modem would seem to be more of a threat, yet only the modem requires a Telepermit.
It would seem arguable whether a clordless handset could be regarded as being 'connected' to the public phone network?
