Ford Taurus Owners Manual: Mobile communications equipment

Using mobile communications equipment is becoming increasingly important in the conduct of business and personal affairs.

Mobile communication equipment includes, but is not limited to, cellular phones, pagers, portable email devices, text messaging devices and portable two-way radios.
