FEATURES

Your RadioShack System 360 Caller ID with Callback is the latest in telephone technology. The system displays the caller’s telephone number (and name, if available in your area) and the current date and time, as provided by your local phone company to Caller ID service subscribers. The system’s callback feature lets you dial a caller’s number with the press of a single button.

The system stores and displays up to 64 single (number only) or multiple (name and number) Caller ID records.

Your System 360 includes these features:

VIP Call — lets you mark up to 32 stored names and phone numbers as important callers. Then, when those callers call, the system sounds a distinctive tone.

New Call Counter — displays the number of new calls you have received.

DELETE Button — lets you erase Caller ID records one at a time or all at once.

REVIEW Buttons — let you easily scroll through all Caller ID records stored in memory.

Easy Installation — the system easily connects to your telephone line so you can quickly begin using it.

FCC INFORMATION

We have designed your System 360 to conform to federal regulations, and you can connect it to most telephone lines. However, each Caller ID system (and each device, such as a telephone or answering machine) that you connect to the telephone line draws power from the line. We refer to this power draw as the system’s ringer equivalence number or REN. The REN is shown on the bottom of the system.

If you use more than one telephone or other device on the line, add up all of the RENs. If the total is more than five, your telephone might not ring. In rural areas, a total REN of three might impair ringer operation. If ringer operation is impaired, remove a device from the line.

Your system complies with Part 68 of FCC Rules. You must, upon request, provide the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) registration number and the REN to your telephone company. Both numbers are shown on the bottom of the system.

Note: You must not connect your System 360 to:

Coin-operatedsystems

Party-linesystems

Most electronic key telephone systems

In the unlikely event that your System 360 causes problems on the phone line, the phone company can temporarily disconnect your service. If this happens, the phone company attempts to notify you in advance. If advance notice is not practical, the phone company notifies you as soon as possible and advises you of your right to file a complaint with the FCC.

Also, the phone company can make changes to its lines, equipment, operations, or procedures that could affect the operation of this system. The phone company notifies you of these changes in advance, so you can take the necessary steps to prevent interruption of your telephone service.

This system complies with the limits for a Class B device as specified in Part 15 of FCC Rules. These limits provide reasonable protection against radio and TV interference in a residential area. However, your System 360 might cause TV or radio interference even when it is operating properly.

To eliminate interference, you can try one or more of the following:

Reorient or relocate the radio or TV receiving antenna

Increase the distance between the System 360 and the radio or TV

Use outlets on different electrical circuits for the System 360 and the radio or TV

Contact your local RadioShack store if the problem continues.
