INTRODUCTION

Thank you for purchasing a RadioShack 5.8 GHz Dual Handset Expandable 2-LineCordless Telephone. Unlike other conventional cordless telephones, your telephone supports up to two 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 another handset. 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.

The digital answering system stores up to 12 minutes of messages (for each line) on a computer chip and records each message’s day and time. This gives you advanced capabilities over tape-basedanswering machines:

You can delete individual messages and save the rest.

There are no tapes to bother with and no tape mechanisms to wear out.

The remote operation feature lets you operate your answering system from a touch-tonephone (or from a rotary phone with a pocket tone dialer).

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. !

!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.

The REN is used to determine the number of devices that may be connected to a telephone line. Excessive RENs on a telephone line may result in the devices not ringing in response to an incoming call. In most but not all areas, the sum of RENs should not exceed five (5.0). To be certain of the number of devices that may be connected to a line, as determined by the total RENs, contact the local telephone company. For products approved after July 23, 2001, the REN for this product is part of the product identifier that has the format US:AAAEQ##TXXXX. The digits represented by ## are the REN without a decimal point (e.g.,

Ô NOTE Ô 03 is a REN of 0.3). For earlier products, the REN is separately shown on the label.

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.

To insure the safety of users, the FCC has established criteria for the amount of radio frequency energy various products may produce depending on their intended usage. This product has been tested and found to comply with the FCC’s exposure criteria. For body worn operation, the FCC RF exposure guidelines were also met when used with the RadioShack accessories supplied or designed for this product. Use of other accessories may not ensure compliance with FCC RF exposure guidelines and should be avoided.

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.

Important Caller ID Information

Installation

Ô NOTEÔ

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.

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.

The handset antenna is located on the back, above the ringer speaker. For maximum communication range, do not hold the handset in such a way as to cover the antenna by your hand. Also, place the handset in the upright position while not in use so the antenna can pick up the signals from the base.

When there is obstacle such as metal or concrete wall between the handset and the base, the operation might be affected. Try to keep free from obstruction.

8

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. Ô

On a Desk Top

1.Plug one end of the supplied long modular cord into the TEL LINE 1/2 jack on the back of the base.

For 2 line subscriptions,

If the two phone lines are in one modular jack, connect using TEL LINE 1/2jack.

If the two phone lines are on two separate modular jacks, connect using both TEL LINE 1/2and TEL LINE 2jacks.

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

3.Insert the supplied AC adapter’s barrel plug into the DC IN 9V jack on the back of the base.!

4.Route the adapter’s cord through the strain relief slot on the base, then plug the adapter into a standard AC outlet.

On a Wall Plate or Wall

To mount the phone directly on a wall, you need two screws (not supplied) with heads that fit into the keyhole slots on the base.

Drill two holes 315/16 inches apart. Thread a screw into each hole, letting the heads extend about1/8 inch.

Ô NOTEÔ

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

!CAUTION!

You must use

!a Class 2 power source

that supplies 9V DC and delivers at least 400 mA. Its center tip must be set to positive and its plug must fit the phone’s DC IN 9V jack. The supplied adapter meets these specifications. Using an adapter that does not meet these specifications could damage the phone or the adapter.
