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.

43-980.fmPage 8 Monday, August 16, 1999 4:44 PM

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.

PREPARATION

INSTALLING BATTERIES/SETUP

You need four AAA batteries (not supplied) to power the system. For the longest operation and best performance, we recommend alkaline batteries, such as RadioShack Cat. No.

23-558.

(illustration)

Cautions:

 

Always use fresh batteries of the required size and type.

Do not mix old and new batteries, different types of batteries (standard, alkaline, or rechargeable), or rechargeable batteries of different capacities.

(illustration)

Follow these steps to install batteries and program the system.

Note: When replacing the batteries, install the new ones within 1 minute, or the system’s date and time will be lost. (The Caller ID information, however, stays stored in the system’s memory.)

11

43-980.fmPage 12 Monday, August 16, 1999 4:44 PM

1.If you are replacing the batteries, unplug the phone line and the phone’s cord from the system.

2.Use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the battery com-

partment screw on the bottom of the system, then slide the cover off in the direction of the arrow on the cover’s door.

3.Insert four fresh AAA batteries into the compartment as indicated by the polarity symbols (+ and –)marked inside the compartment.

(illustration)

12

43-980.fmPage 13 Monday, August 16, 1999 4:44 PM

4.Turn the system over so you can see the display. After you install batteries, the system beeps and displays FA640 REV 1.8

(information about the system’s software), then SET LANGUAGE for a few seconds, thenENGLISH (the default display language) appears for about 45 seconds.

5.To select another language, while ENGLISH appears, pressREVIEW once to display French or twice to display Spanish.

(illustration)

13

43-980.fmPage 14 Monday, August 16, 1999 4:44 PM

Notes:

The display shows ENGLISH again if you pressREVIEW a third time.

If you do not press any key within 45 seconds after pressing REVIEW , the module automatically selects English. Go to Step 7.

6.Press REVIEW to store the selected language. The module beeps, and000 andSET AREA CODE

(English), CODIGO DE AREA (Spanish), or

CHOISIR ZONE (French) appears. The first0 flashes.

14

43-980.fmPage 15 Monday, August 16, 1999 4:44 PM

7.Within 45 seconds, repeatedly press REVIEW until the first digit of your area code appears, then press REVIEW to set the digit. The second0 flashes.

Notes:

If you make a mistake while setting the area code, press DELETE. The cursor moves to the first digit of the area code. Then repeat Steps 7 and 8 to reset the area code.

If you do not press any key within 45 seconds in this step or Step 8, the system automatically sets the area code to 000. If this happens, remove the batteries, wait about 15 seconds (to reset the memory), then begin again from Step 3.

8.Repeat Step 7 to set the second and third digits of your area code.

When you enter the area code’s last digit, the system beeps once and displays 12:00AM 1/01.

15

43-980.fmPage 16 Monday, August 16, 1999 4:44 PM

The telephone company sends the correct time with each incoming call, so the correct date and time are automatically set when the system receives its first call.

9.Replace the battery cover and the screw. If you are replacing the batteries, reconnect the phone lines.

When flashes in the upper right corner of the display or the display dims, replace the batteries.

Cautions:

Always remove old or weak batteries. Batteries can leak chemicals that can damage your system.

Dispose of dead batteries promptly and properly; do not bury or burn them.

Do not mix old and new batteries, different types of batteries (standard, alkaline, or rechargeable), or rechargeable batteries of different capacities.

43-980.fmPage 17 Monday, August 16, 1999 4:44 PM

2.Plug one end of the supplied line cord into the system’s LINE jack.

3.Plug the cord’s other end into the answering machine’s jack.

19

43-980.fmPage 20 Monday, August 16, 1999 4:44 PM

Note: Some answering machines block Caller ID information from the System 360. If this happens, you might have to disconnect the answering machine.
