FEATURES

Your RadioShack System 931 79-MemoryCaller ID displays the caller’s telephone number (and name, if available in your area) and the current date and time, as provided by your local phone company to Caller ID subscribers. The date and time are set when your Caller ID receives its first call.

Note: Check with your local phone company regarding name service availability.

The System 931 stores and displays up to 79 single (number only) or multiple (name and number) Caller ID records, and includes these features:

3-LineLiquid Crystal Display— makes it easy to clearly see the caller’s name (if available), phone number, and the current time and date.

Out of Area Indication — lets you know when an incoming call is from an area that does not send any Caller ID information.

Trilingual Operation — lets you set the system to display messages in English, French, or Spanish.

Mounting Options — you can place the system on a desk, shelf, or table, or mount it on a wall.

Note: Your system requires four AAA batteries (not supplied) for power.

FCC INFORMATION

We have designed your system to conform to federal regulations, and you can connect it to most telephone lines. However, each system (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 is on the bottom of the system.

If you use more than one telephone or other device on the line, add up all of the RENs. If the total is more than five, your telephone might not ring. In rural areas, a total REN of three might impair ringer operation. If ringer operation is impaired, remove a device from the line.

Your system complies with Part 68 of FCC Rules. You must, upon request, provide the FCC registration number and the REN to your telephone company. Both numbers are on the bottom of the system.

Note: You must not connect your system to:

coin-operatedsystems

party-linesystems

most electronic key telephone systems

In the unlikely event that your system causes problems on the phone line, the phone company can temporarily disconnect 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 system. The telephone company notifies you of these changes in advance, so you can take the necessary steps to prevent interruption of your telephone service.

This equipment complies with the limits for a Class B digital device as specified in Part 15 of FCC Rules. These limits provide reasonable protection against radio and TV interference in a residential area. However, your equipment might cause TV or radio interference even when it is operating properly. To eliminate interference, you can try one or more of the following corrective measures:

Reorient or relocate the TV or radio’s receiving antenna.

7

43-931A.fmPage 8 Monday, January 15, 2001 9:14 AM

Increase the distance between the equipment and the radio or TV.

Use outlets on different electrical circuits for the equipment and the radio or TV.

Consult your local RadioShack store if the problem continues.

PREPARATION

INSTALLING BATTERIES

Your System 931 requires four AAA batteries (not supplied) for power. For the longest operation and best performance, we recommend alkaline batteries, available at your local RadioShack store.

Cautions:

Always use 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.

Follow these steps to install batteries.

Notes:

When you replace the batteries, do not press any button on the system after you remove the old batteries. Doing so could erase all stored information.
