900 MHz Headset Phone

43-3522/3523

OWNER’S MANUAL — Please read before using this equipment.

Thank you for shopping at RadioShack. Your 900MHz Headset Phone gives you communication with both portability and convenience. It comes in two parts, a headset and a base.

The phone’s headset connects to a cordless remote keypad, so you can make calls away from its base. The headset lets you keep your hands free to do other things. The base’s space saving, upright design makes it perfect for areas where space is limited.

Your phone includes:

Advanced Super CCT Circuitry — provides sound clarity comparable to that of a corded phone.

Security Access-ProtectionCode— prevents other cordless phone users from using your phone line.

10-NumberMemory Dialing— lets you store ten numbers in memory for easy dialing.

10-ChannelAuto Scan— automatically selects a clear channel when you pick up the phone. You can also manually switch to another channel.

Redial — lets you easily redial the last number dialed.

Mute — prevents the person on the other end of the phone line from hearing you as you talk to someone else in the room.

Flash — sends an electronic switchhook signal for use with special phone services such as Call Waiting.

Touch-Toneor Pulse Dialing— lets you use your phone with either type of service.

Belt Clip — lets you carry the phone’s remote keypad on your belt for easy portability.

Hearing-AidCompatibility— lets you use your phone with hearing aids that have a T (telephone) switch.

Cord Clip — lets you position the headset cord.

Important: Cordless phones such as this one require AC power to operate. When the AC power is off, you cannot dial out or receive incoming calls using your telephone. To be safe, you should also have a phone that does not need AC power to operate (not a cordless phone) so you can still make and

receive calls if there is an AC power failure.

Note: Your phone operates on standard radio frequencies as allocated by the FCC. It is possible for other radio units operating nearby on similar frequencies to unintentionally intercept your conversation or cause interference. This possible lack of privacy can occur with any cordless phone.

FCC STATEMENT

Your headset phone complies with Part 68 of FCC Rules. You must, upon request, provide the FCC registration number and the REN to your telephone company. Both numbers are on the bottom of the phone’s base.

Note: You must not connect your telephone to:

coin-operatedsystems

party-linesystems

most electronic key telephone systems

We have designed your headset phone to conform to federal regulations, and you can connect it to most telephone lines. However, each headset phone (and each additional

device, such as a telephone or answering machine) that you connect to the telephone line draws power from the telephone line. We refer to this power draw as the device's ringer equivalence number, or REN on the bottom of your phone’s base.

If you use more than one phone or other device on the line, add up all of the RENs. If the total is more than five (three in rural areas), your telephones might not ring. If ringer operation is impaired, remove a device from the line.

In the unlikely event that your phone causes problems on the phone line, the phone company can temporarily discontinue 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 telephone. The telephone company notifies you of these changes in advance, so you can take the necessary steps to prevent interruption of your telephone service.

This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications.

However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:

Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.

Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.

Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.

Consult your local RadioShack store or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.

If you cannot eliminate the interference, the FCC requires

that you stop using your headset phone.

Changes or modifications not expressly approved by RadioShack may cause interference and void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.

This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) this device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.

Your headset phone is ETL listed to UL standards and meets all applicable FCC requirements.

LIGHTNING

Your telephone has built-inprotection circuits to reduce the risk of damage from surges in telephone line and power line current. These protection circuits meet or exceed the FCC requirements. However, lightning striking the telephone or power lines can damage your telephone.

Lightning damage is not common. Nevertheless, if you live in an area that has severe electrical storms, we suggest that you unplug your phone when storms approach to reduce the possibility of damage.

DC 12V 200mA

INSTALLATION

Selecting a Location

You can place the phone on a desktop, shelf, or table. Select a location that is:

near an easily accessible AC outlet

near a telephone line jack

out of the way of normal activities

away from electrical machinery, electrical appliances, metal walls, filing cabinets, wireless intercoms, security alarms, and room monitors

The base’s location affects the phone’s range. If you have a choice of several locations, try each to see which provides the best performance.

Your telephone connects directly to a modular telephone line jack. If your telephone wiring does not have a modular jack, you can update the wiring yourself using jacks and adapters (available at your local RadioShack store), or have the telephone company update the wiring for you. You must use compatible modular jacks that are compliant with Part 68 of FCC Rules.

Note: The USOC number of the jack to be installed is RJ11C (or RJ11W for a wall plate jack).

Using AC Power

Power the headset telephone using the supplied 12V, 200mA AC/DC adapter.

Cautions:

You must use a Class 2

!power source that supplies 12V DC and deliv-

ers at least 200mA. Its plug must fit the telephone's

jack. The supplied adapter meets these specifications. Using an adapter that does not meet these specifications could damage the telephone or the adapter.

Always connect the AC adapter to the telephone before you connect it to AC power. When you finish, disconnect the adapter from AC power before you disconnect it from the telephone.

Follow these steps to connect the adapter to the telephone.

1.Plug the supplied AC adapter’s barrel plug into the DC 12V 200mA jack on the back of the base.

2.Plug the adapter into a standard AC outlet.

Connecting the Phone

Plug one end of the supplied modular cord into the TEL.LINE jack on the back of the base.

4

Plug the modular cord’s other end into a modular phone line jack.

Plug the supplied AC adapter’s barrel plug into the DC 12V 200mA jack on the back of the base.

Plug the adapter into a standard AC outlet.

Connecting, Charging, And

Replacing The Battery Pack

The phone comes with a rechargeable nickel-cadmiumbattery pack. You must connect the battery pack and charge it for at least 15 hours before you use the phone for the first time.

1.Use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the screw on the battery compartment cover, then remove the cover.

2.Plug the battery pack’s connector into the socket in the compartment (the connector fits only one way).

3.Replace the cover and secure it with the screw.

To charge the battery pack, place the remote keypad on the base. The IN USE/CHARGE indicator.

Notes:

Recharge the battery pack when the TALK/LOW BATT indicator lights.

When you first use the phone after charging or recharging the battery

pack, the phone might not work. Return the remote keypad to the base for about 5 seconds to reset the security access-protectioncode.

About once a month, fully discharge the battery pack by keeping the remote keypad off the base until the TALK/LOW BATT indicator lights. Otherwise, the battery pack loses its ability to fully recharge.

If the IN USE/CHARGE indicator does not light when you place the remote keypad on the base, be sure the AC adapter is correctly and securely connected. Also, check the charging contacts on the remote keypad and the base. If the contacts are dirty or tarnished, clean them with a pencil eraser.

When the remote keypad is on the base, the IN USE/CHARGE indicator lights even when the battery pack is not connected. If your phone does not work, be sure the battery pack is properly connected.

If the battery pack becomes completely discharged or the base loses power while the remote keypad is away from it, place the remote keypad on the base for about 5 seconds to reset the security access-protectioncode. If the remote keypad loses power,

leave it on the base to charge the battery pack.

If you will not use your phone for a long time, disconnect its battery pack. This helps increase the battery pack’s life.

The supplied battery pack should last 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 3.6V, 600mAh NiCd rechargeable battery pack with a connector that fits the socket in the battery compartment. You can order a replacement battery pack through your local RadioShack store. Install the new battery pack, place the remote keypad on the base, and charge the battery for 15 hours before using it.

Note: To avoid losing numbers stored in memory, you must install and begin charging the new battery pack within 2 minutes of removing the old one.

Warning: Dispose of the old battery pack promptly and properly. Do not burn or bury them.

Cautions:

You must use a replacement battery pack of the same size and type.

Do not dispose of the battery pack in fire because it might explode.

Do not open or mutilate the battery pack.

Be careful not to short the battery pack by touching the conducting materials, such as rings, bracelets, and keys. The battery pack or conductor might overheat and burn.

Important: The EPA certified RBRC®Battery Recycling Seal on the nickel-cadmium (Ni-Cd) battery indicates

RadioShack is voluntarily participating in an industry program to collect and recycle these batteries at the end of their useful life, when taken out of service in the United States or Canada. The RBRC program provides a convenient alternative to placing used Ni-Cdbatteries into the trash or the municipal waste stream, which may be illegal in your area. Please call1-800-THE-SHACK(1-800-843-7422)for information onNi-Cdbattery recycling and disposal bans/ restrictions in your area. RadioShack’s involvement in this program is part of the company’s commitment to preserving our environment and conserving our natural resources.
