OPERATION

If you subscribe to Caller ID service from your phone company, the phone company sends information about the caller, as well as the time and date, between the first and second rings of every call you receive. The System 997/998 displays this information and updates the system’s clock. (You cannot manually set the date and time.)

CALL flashes on the display during an incoming call, then the Caller ID information appears. After 20 seconds, the system returns to the clock display.

NEW flashes on the display to show that you have received new calls since the last time you reviewed Caller ID records.

The System 997/998 can also show other information about the call. See “Caller ID Messages” on Page 25.

REVIEWING CALL RECORDS

call number

time and date of the call

caller’s telephone number (if available)

caller’s name (if available)

CARE AND MAINTENANCE

Your RadioShack System 997/998 45-MemoryCaller ID is an example of superior design and craftsmanship. The following suggestions will help you care for your system so you can enjoy it for years.

Keep the system dry. If it gets wet, wipe it dry immediately. Liquids might contain minerals that can corrode the electronic circuits.

Use and store the system only in normal temperature environments. Temperature extremes can shorten the life of electronic devices, damage batteries, and distort or melt plastic parts.
