Important Safety Instructions

ˆ Introduction

Thank you for purchasing our 900 MHz Cordless Telephone. It provides excellent clarity and range and integrates Caller ID, Call Waiting ID, and a digital answering system into one space-savingdevice. The 900 MHz band provides less interference, clearer sound, and greater range than 46/49 MHz cordless telephones.

The digital answering system provides clear reliable messaging with call screening, day/ time stamp, call counter, remote access and instant skip or replay messaging.

The Caller ID records each caller’s name (if available in your area), telephone number, and the date and time of the call, as provided by your local phone company to Caller ID service subscribers.

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 phone. 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.

When AC power is lost, the phone loses the security access-protectioncode connection between the base and the handset. When power is restored, put the handset on the base briefly to restore this connection.

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.

READ THIS BEFORE

INSTALLATION

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.

The digital answering system stores up to 16 minutes of messages 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.

Introduction

5

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

ˆ Installation

MOUNTING THE PHONE

on a wall. Choose a location that is:

You can place the phone on a desk or table,

• near an AC outlet

mount it on a standard wall plate, or directly

 

6

Installation

DC IN 9V

near a modular 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

You can try different locations to see which provides the best performance.

Cautions:

You must use a Class 2 power

!source that supplies 9V DC and delivers at least 350 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.

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

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

On a Desk Top

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

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

3. Insert the supplied AC adapter’s barrel plug into the jack on the back.

4. Route the adapter’s cord through the strain relief slot on the base’s bottom.

5.Plug the adapter into a standard AC outlet.

6.Lift the base’s antenna to a vertical position.

On a Wall Plate or Wall

1. Insert the two tabs

at the top of the narrow end of the supplied bracket into the base’s upper tab slots,

then press down on the bracket’s

latches and insert

them into the lower slots.

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

3.Insert the supplied AC adapter’s barrel plug into the DC IN 9V jack.

4.Route the adapter and modular cords through the bracket’s grooves.

5.Plug the modular

cord’s other end into the wall plate jack, then align the bracket’s keyhole slots with the wall

plate studs and slide the base downward to secure it.

6.Plug the adapter into a standard AC outlet.

7.Press and lift out the handset holder, flip it over, then snap it back into place to hold the handset.

8.Lift the base’s antenna to a vertical position.

To mount the phone directly on a wall, you need two screws (not supplied) with heads that fit into the keyhole slots on the bracket. Follow the steps under “On a Wall Plate or Wall” then apply these additional instructions.

1.Drill two holes 3 15 /16 inches apart. Thread a screw into each hole, letting the heads extend about1/8 inch.

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

3.Align the bracket’s

keyhole slots with the mounting screws and slide the base downward to secure it.

CONNECTING, CHARGING AND REPLACING THE BATTERY PACK

The phone comes with a rechargeable Ni-Cd(nickel-cadmium)battery pack installed in the handset, but not connected. Before using your phone, you must connect the battery pack, then charge it for about 24 hours.

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

2.Lift the battery pack out of the compartment.

3.Plug the battery

pack’s connector into the socket in the compartment. The connector fits only one way.

4.Put the battery pack in the compartment.

5.Replace the cover.

To charge the battery pack, place the handset on the base, face up or down. The base’s CHARGE/IN USE indicator lights.

Recharge the battery pack when Bemý8Wjj[hoý flashes.

Important: Be sure the battery pack is properly connected before you try to charge it. The CHARGE/IN USE indicator lights when the handset is on the base even if the battery pack is not connected properly.

Notes:

When you first use the phone after charging or recharging the battery pack, the phone might not work and you might hear error beeps. If this happens, return the handset to the base for about 5 seconds to reset the security accessprotection code.

Using a pencil eraser, clean the charging contacts on the handset and the base about once a month.

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

If the battery pack becomes weak during a call, the handset beeps andýBemý 8Wjj[ho flashes. When this happens, you cannot make a call on the phone until you recharge the battery pack.

8

Installation

About once a month, fully discharge the

battery pack by keeping the handset off the base until Bemý8Wjj[ho flashes. Otherwise, the battery pack loses its ability to fully recharge.

If the battery pack is completely discharged or the base loses power while the handset is away from it, place the handset on the base to reset the security access-protectioncode. If it was the handset that lost power, recharge the battery pack.

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 3.6- volt, 600 mAh 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 and charge it for about 24 hours.

Warning: Dispose of the old battery pack promptly and properly. Do not burn or bury it (see “Battery Safety Instructions” on Page 4 for additional information on proper battery handling).

If you have trouble replacing the battery pack, take the phone to your local RadioShack for assistance.

Important: The EPA certified RBRC®Battery Recycling Seal on thenickel-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.
