Two-LineTelephone System —lets you easily handle two telephone lines at the same time. You can use both lines to make 3- or 4- way conference calls, or one line for data communication while you are talking on the other.

Speakerphone — lets you make or answer calls without using the handset.

Dual Keypads — a full set of keys on both the phone's handset and base let you use either keypad to make and answer calls or use the phone's features.

Thank you for purchasing a RadioShack 900 MHz 2 Line Cordless Speakerphone. It uses advanced cordless telephone technology to give you superior audio quality and extended range. It is designed to exacting standards that ensure reliability, long life, and outstanding performance.

The phone’s Caller ID memory records and stores up to 80 Caller ID records (40 for each line), including telephone number (and name, if available in your area) and the date and time of the call, as provided by your local phone company to Caller ID service subscribers. If you subscribe to Call Waiting with Caller ID, the phone can show you the incoming caller information, even when you are already on the phone.

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. Choose a location that is:

near an AC outlet

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

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.

Connecting to Phone Lines

The line that connects a two-linephone jack to the phone company wiring must betwisted-paircable. Otherwise, you might hear interference (crosstalk) between the two lines.

The USOC number of the twoline jack to be installed is RJ14C (RJ14W for a wall-plate).The USOC number of asingle-linejack is RJ11C.

On a Desk Top

If you connect the phone to a two-linephone jack with a twoline cord, do not connect a cord to theTEL LINE 2 jack or the phone will not operate properly. Instead, you can connect another phone device, such as a fax machine or modem.

If you connect the phone to a single one-linephone jack, avoid pressing the unused line button or you might hear feedback.

."%#76+10".

You must use a Class 2

!power source that supplies 9V AC 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.

%100'%6+0)"61"2*10'".+0'5

To take full advantage of the phone’s capabilities, you must have two phone lines with separate phone numbers. If you have only one line, you can order a second from your phone company.

You can connect the phone to the lines in one of three ways:

connect two lines through a two-linemodular phone jack

connect two lines through two one-linemodular phone jacks

connect one line through a one-linemodular phone jack.

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 online at RadioShack.com), 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

If the base loses power for 60 minutes while the handset is away from it, the security code might be lost. To reset the code, return the handset to the base for about five seconds.

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

If the battery pack becomes weak during a call, the handset beeps every three seconds and

Bemý8Wjj[ho flashes. When this happens, you cannot make a call until you recharge the battery pack.

About once a month, fully discharge the battery by

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

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

If you are not going to use your phone for an extended period of time, disconnect the battery pack. This increases the battery pack's usable life.

5.To mount the phone on a wall

plate, plug the other end of the short modular cord 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. If you are using two phone cords, plug the second cord into the second phone jack.

To mount the phone directly on a wall, align the bracket's keyhole slots with the mounted screws and slide the base downward to secure it. Connect the phone cord(s) to the modular phone line jack(s).

The phone comes with a rechargeable nickel-cadmium(NiCd) battery pack in the handset. Before using your phone, you must connect the battery pack, then charge it for about15–20hours.±

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), replace the battery pack, and replace the cover.

To charge the battery pack, place the handset either faceup or face-downon the base.

The CHARGE indicator on the base lights and the number of new and total Caller ID records for each line appears on the handset's display. Be sure the battery pack is properly connected before you try to charge it. The CHARGE indicator lights when the handset is on the base even if the battery pack is not properly connected.

Recharge the battery pack when Bemý8Wjj[ho flashes.

When you first use the phone after charging or recharging the battery pack, the phone might not work and you might hear a beep when you press LINE 1 orLINE 2. Return the handset to the base for about five seconds to reset the securityaccess-protectioncode.

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 RadioShack. Install the new battery pack and charge it for about 15–20hours.R

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