! IMPORTANT!

To use this Caller ID box, you must be in an area where Caller ID service is available, and you must subscribe to the service.

ÔNOTE Ô

The backlight does not work if the AC adapter is disconnected.

The USOC number for both the single-lineandtwo-linejacks to be installed is RJ11C (or RJ11W for a wall plate jack).

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

ÔBATTERY NOTES Ô

Dispose of dead batteries promptly and properly.

Do not burn or bury batteries.

Use only fresh batteries of the required size and recommended type.

Do not mix old and new batteries, different types of batteries (standard, alkaline, or rechargeable), or rechargeable batteries of different capacities.

If you do not plan to use the Caller ID box for a month or more, remove the batteries. Batteries can leak chemicals that can destroy electronic parts.

When replacing batteries, do not press any buttons on the Caller ID box after you remove the old batteries. Doing so could erase all stored information.

When replacing the batteries, have fresh ones on hand before you begin. If you do not install the new batteries within about 2 minutes after removing the old ones, you will lose all the information stored in the

Caller ID box.

CALLER ID BOX SETUP

Caller ID is a service provided by your telephone company. When you subscribe to this service, between the first and second rings, the telephone company sends the caller’s telephone number (and name, if available) and the call’s date and time. The Caller ID box receives and displays this information for each call and updates the display with the current date and time. Your Caller ID box saves up to 64 Caller ID records, then replaces the oldest Caller ID record with each new one.

back of the Caller ID box. Then connect the other end of the adapter to a standard AC outlet. Ô

CALLERID BOXCONNECTION

Your Caller ID box is ETL listed to UL standards and meets all applicable FCC requirements.

Your Caller ID box 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 and the requirements adopted by the ACTA. The telephone cord and modular plug provided is Part 68 compliant for connecting to the telephone company network.Ô

Connecting to a Single-LinePhone

1.Disconnect the telephone line cord from the modular phone jack on the wall and plug it into the PHONE JACK on the back of the Caller ID box.

2.Plug the Caller ID box’s pre-wiredtelephone line cord into the modular phone jack on the wall.

THE FCC WANTS YOU TO KNOW

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 Caller ID box.

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

SURGEPROTECTION

Your Caller ID box 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 Caller ID box or power lines can damage your Caller ID box.

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.

FCC STATEMENT

Your Caller ID box complies with Part 68 of FCC Rules and the requirements adopted by the ACTA. On the bottom of this product is a label with this product’s FCC Product Identification number in the format

US: DYFND01B433903. If requested, you must provide this information to the telephone company.

You must not connect your Caller ID box to:

coin-operatedsystems

most electronic key telephone systems

Your Caller ID box 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.

We have designed your Caller ID box to conform to federal regulations, and you can connect it to most telephone lines. However, each Caller ID box (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. The REN for your Caller ID box is the digits represented by ##, without a decimal point (03 represents a REN of 0.3 for example) in the Product Identification on the number found on the bottom of your Caller ID box.

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 Caller ID box. The telephone company notifies you of these changes in advance, so you can take the necessary steps to prevent interruption of your telephone service.
