The Basics

Introduction

Thank you for purchasing your RadioShack 2.4 GHz Multi-HandsetExpandable 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 around 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.

The digital answering system stores up to 12 minutes of messages on a computer chip and records day and time information for each message. 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 Basics

Cordless phones require AC power to NOTE operate. When the power is off, you

cannot make or receive calls by using your phone. We recommend you to also have a mobile phone so you can still make and receive calls in the event of 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.

As an Energy Star® Partner, RadioShack Corporation has determined that this product meets the Energy Star® guidelines for energy efficiency. Energy Star® is a U.S. registered mark.
