Thank you for purchasing a RadioShack 900 MHz Cordless Telephone. Your telephone 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. #"

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:

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 both handsets on the base briefly to restore this connection.

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.

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.

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

The phone comes with a rechargeable Ni-Cd(nickel-cadmium)battery pack installed in each handset, but not connected. Before using your phone, you must connect the battery packs, then charge them 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 packs, place one handset on the base, face up or down. The base’s CHARGE LED lights. Place the other handset on the charging cradle. The cradle’s CHARGE LED lights#"

When you first use the phone after charging or recharging the battery packs, 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 access-protectioncode.

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

#"+/2146#06"#

Be sure the battery pack is properly connected before you try to charge it. The CHARGE LED lights when the handset is on the base or cradle even if the battery pack is not connected properly.

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

If the battery pack becomes weak during a

call, the handset beeps

flashes. When this happens, you cannot make a call on the phone until you recharge the battery pack.

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.

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).

About once a month, fully discharge the battery

pack by keeping the handset off the base or cradle until Bemý8Wjj[ho flashes. Otherwise, the battery

pack loses its ability to fully recharge.

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, 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 (or online at RadioShack.com). Install the new battery pack and charge it for about 24 hours.

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