Safety first!

Please read these instructions before using your Phone Box. We do not want you to get hurt or your Phone Box to get damaged.

  • Do not use your Phone Box near water. If you need to clean it, do not use a wet towel. Keep your Phone Box dry.
  • Do not place your Phone Box near any heat sources, such as hot appliances like heaters and radiators, other electronics like computers and stereos, or inside your fireplace. Your Phone Box is cool, and you should help it to stay that way.
  • The Phone Box is for indoor use only. Please do not use it outside.
  • Only plug in cables and accessories specified and as directed by Google Fiber.
  • Protect your Phone Box power cord by allowing it to loosely rest between the device and the power outlet. Do not stretch it or compress it between objects.
  • Do not try to open, modify, or repair your Phone Box, which can cause electric shock or injury to you. Any customer modification not expressly approved by Google voids your authority to operate the equipment and will void your device warranty. If you think something is wrong with your Phone Box, please contact Google Fiber customer support.
  • If your Phone Box gets wet, its power cord appears damaged, or it is generally not functioning properly, please contact Google Fiber customer support.
  • The Phone Box does not have an on/off switch. If you want to turn it off, unplug it.

Safekeeping

  • Handle your Phone Box with care; do not drop or shake it.
  • It is expected that your Phone Box will get warm, but it needs ventilation to continue to function properly. It is important that the Phone Box is placed on a unobstructed, solid surface. Do not place the Phone Box on a soft surface, such as a carpeted floor, which may block airflow.

WARNINGS:

Failure to follow these safety instructions can result in fire, electric shock, or other injury or damage to the Phone Box or your property.

Do not attempt to open or modify the Phone Box. If you do so, you run the risk of electric shock or injury. There are no user-serviceable parts inside the Phone Box.

To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not expose your Phone Box to the outdoors, liquid, moisture, excessive heat, or fire.

Choking hazards

The Phone Box packaging may include plastic bags and tie-wraps. Please dispose of these properly and keep them out of reach of children, as they can present a choking hazard. Keep the Phone Box, its cords, and its accessories out of the reach of small children.
