Introduction

Thank you for purchasing this RadioShack 5.8 GHz Accessory handset. Your handset is designed for use with aRadioShack 5.8 GHz Expandable Cordless Telephone. You can use this handset in any room in your home or office that has an AC outlet. You can also transfer an outside call to another handset.

This handset is designed to work only with a RadioShack 5.8 GHz Expandable Cordless Telephone (Cat. No.43-141,43-142and43-143).Do not try to use it with other cordless telephones.

Selecting a Location

Select a location for the base that is near an accessible AC standard wall outlet and away from electrical machinery, electrical appliances, metal walls, filing cabinets, wireless intercoms, alarms, room monitors, and other cordless phones.

Installing the Charger

You can power the charger using the supplied 9V,

210 mA AC adapter.

Insert the supplied AC

adapter’s barrel plug into

the DC IN 9V jack on the bottom of the charger. Route

the cord through the strain relief slot and plug the adapter into a standard AC outlet.

Caution: You must use a Class 2 power source that supplies 9V DC and delivers at least 210 mA. Its center tip must be set to positive and its plug must fit the charger’s DC IN 9V jack. The supplied adapter meets these specifications. Using an adapter that does not meet these specifications could damage the handset or the adapter.

Connecting/Charging the Battery

The phone comes with a rechargeable nickel metal hydride (Ni-MH)battery pack. The supplied battery pack should last for about a year. If the battery pack does not hold a charge for more than 2 hours after an overnight charge, replace it with a new 3.6 volt, 750 mAh battery pack with a connector that fits the socket in the battery compartment. You can order a replacement battery pack through your localRadioShack store or online atwww.radioshack.com.

Before using your phone, you must install the battery pack, and then charge it for about 15-20hours.

1.Press down and slide the battery compartment cover off.

2. Plug the battery pack’s connector into the socket

in the compartment (the connector fits only one way), then place the battery pack in

the compartment. MODELS VARY! PLACE HANDSET ON THE BASE FOR REGISTRATION OR REFER TO OWNER’S MANUAL appears.

3.Replace the cover.

To charge the battery pack, place the handset on the charger. The CHARGE indicator on the charging cradle lights. Proceed to “Registering the Handset” on page 9.

Important: Be sure the battery pack is properly connected before you try to charge it. The CHARGE indicator lights when the handset is on the charger.

Recharge the battery pack when LOW BATTERY appears.

About once a month, use a damp cloth to clean the charging contacts on the handset.

If the battery pack becomes weak during a call, the handset beeps and LOW BATTERY appears. When this happens, you cannot make a call until you recharge the battery pack.

If the display is blank and the phone does not work, recharge the battery pack. (The battery power might be too low to light the display.)

About once a month, fully discharge the battery by keeping the handset off the base or charger until LOW BATTERY stays lit. Otherwise, the battery pack loses its ability to fully recharge.

If you are not going to use your phone for an extended period, disconnect the battery pack. This increases the battery pack’s usable life.

If you have trouble installing the battery pack, take the handset to your local RadioShack store for assistance.

Warning:

Dispose of old battery packs promptly and properly.

Do not burn or bury them.

There is a risk of explosion if batteries are replaced by the wrong type.

Dispose of used batteries according to the instructions.

Installing a Belt Clip

To attach the belt clip, insert the belt clip into the holes on each side of the cordless handset. Press down until it clicks.

To remove the belt clip, pull either side of the belt clip to release the tabs from the holes.

Using an Optional Headset

You can make or answer calls handsfree using an optional headset that has a 3/32-inch(2.5-mm)plug. Your localRadioShack store has a variety of headsets available.

1.To connect the headset, gently flip

open the rubber headset jack cover on the side of the cordless handset. Then insert the headset’s plug into the jack.

2.Use oron the handset to adjust the headset’s volume.

3.With a headset connected, you can make or answer calls as usual using the keys on the handset.

4.When you finish using the headset, disconnect it from the handset and close the rubber cover to protect the jack.

whenever you are recharging the handset.

You can use a handset holder (available from your local RadioShack store) to hang the handset on your belt for added convenience.
