INTRODUCTION

Thank you for purchasing a RadioShack 2.4 GHz Multi Handset Expandable Cordless Telephone. Unlike other conventional cordless telephones, your telephone supports up to four handsets on a single telephone line. You can add a handset to any room in your home or office that has an AC outlet. No more running to the other end of the house to answer the phone! You can transfer outside calls to other handsets. If you subscribe to Call Waiting with Caller ID, the phone shows you the incoming caller information, even when you are already talking on the phone.

Cordless phones require AC power to operate. When the power is off, you cannot make or receive calls by using your phone. 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. !

As an ENERGYSTAR Partner, RadioShack Corporation has determined that this product meets the ENERGYSTAR guidelines for energy efficiency.

!IMPORTANT !

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.

Ô NOTEÔ

You must not connect your phone to:

coin-operatedsystems

most electronic key telephone systems

IMPORTANT

INFORMATION

This telephone has been tested and found to comply with all applicable UL and FCC standards.

FCC STATEMENT

Your telephone compiles with Part 68 of the FCC Rules.Upon request, you must provide the phone’s FCC registration number and REN to your phone company. These numbers are on the base unit.

Your phone is not intended to be used with party-linesystems. Connection to party line service is subject to state tariffs. Contact the state public utility commission, public service commission, or corporation commission for information. Ô

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

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.

WARNING: To reduce the risk of

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 phone. 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 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.

Privacy of communications, may not be ensured when using this phone.

SURGEPROTECTION

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.

IMPORTANT CALLER ID INFORMATION

To use Caller ID and Call Waiting, you must be in an area where those services are available and you must subscribe to those services through your local phone company. Where Caller ID is offered, one or more options are generally available:

caller’s number only

caller’s name only

caller’s name and number

If you subscribe to Call Waiting ID and Caller ID, the system can show you the incoming caller information, even when you are already talking on the phone.

READTHISBEFOREINSTALLATION

We have designed your phone to conform to federal regulations and you can connect it to most phone lines. However, each device that you connect to the telephone line draws power from the line. We refer to this power draw as the phone’s ringer equivalence number, or REN. The REN is on the bottom of your phone.

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

Installation

ÔNOTES Ô

If your home has specially wired alarm equipment connected to the telephone line, be sure that installing the system does not disable your alarm equipment. If you have questions about what will disable alarm equipment, contact your telephone company or a qualified installer.

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

INSTALLATION

Before using your phone, carefully peel the protective film off the display. The film protects the handset window during shipment and is not necessary for use.

SELECTING ALOCATION

You can place the phone’s base on a desk or table, or mount it on a standard wall plate or directly on a wall. Select a location that is:Ô

near an accessible AC outlet

near a telephone line jack

out of the way of normal activities

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

away from other cordless phones

The base’s location affects the handset’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. Ô
