INTRODUCTION

Thank you for purchasing a RadioShack 5.8 GHz Multi Handset Expandable Cordless Telephone. Unlike other conventional cordless telephones, your telephone supports up to ten 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 to the other end of 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.

Cordless phones require AC power to operate. When the power is off, you cannot make or receive calls by using your phone. You should also have a phone that does not need AC power to operate (not a cordless phone), so you can still make and receive calls if there is an AC power failure.

WHAT’S INCLUDED

Make sure you have received the following items in the package.

Base unit (1)

Handsets (2)

Charger (1)

AC adapters (2)

Telephone cord (1)

Rechargeable batteries (2)

Belt clips (2)

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 phone. 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 device complies with part 15 of the FCC rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) This device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation. Privacy of communications, may not be ensured when using this phone.

To insure the safety of users, the FCC has established criteria for the amount of radio frequency energy various products may produce depending on their intended usage. This product has been tested and found to comply with the FCC’s exposure criteria. For body worn operation, the FCC RF exposure guidelines were also met when used with the RadioShack accessories supplied or designed for this product. Use of other accessories may not ensure compliance with FCC RF exposure guidelines and should be avoided.

SURGEPROTECTION

Your telephone 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 telephone or power lines can damage your telephone.

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.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

When using your telephone equipment, basic safety precautions should always be followed to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock and injury to persons, including the following:

1.Do not use this product near water, for example, near a bathtub, wash bowl, kitchen sink, or laundry tub, in a wet basement or near a swimming pool.

2.Avoid using a telephone (other than a cordless type) during an electrical storm. There may be a remote risk of electric shock from lightning.

3.Do not use the telephone to report a gas leak in the vicinity of the leak.

4.Use only the power cord and batteries indicated in this manual. Do not dispose of batteries in a fire. They may explode. Check with local codes for possible special disposal instructions.

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS

IMPORTANT CALLER ID INFORMATION

To use Caller ID and Call Waiting, you must be in an area where those services are available and you must subscribe to those services through your local phone company. Where Caller ID is offered, one or more options are generally available:

caller’s number only

caller’s name only

caller’s name and number

If you subscribe to Call Waiting ID and Caller ID, the system can show you the incoming caller information, even when you are already talking on the phone.

READTHISBEFOREINSTALLATION

We have designed your phone to conform to federal regulations and you can connect it to most phone lines. However, each device that you connect to the telephone line draws power from the line. We refer to this power draw as the phone’s ringer equivalence number, or REN. The REN is on the bottom of your phone.

If you use more than one phone or other device on the line, add up all the RENs. If the total is more than five (three in rural areas), your phones might not ring. If ringer operation is impaired, remove one of the devices from the line.

Installation

Ô NOTEÔ

If your home has specially wired alarm equipment connected to the telephone line, be sure that installing the system does not disable your alarm equipment.

If you have questions about what will disable alarm equipment, contact your telephone company or a qualified installer.

Correct

Incorrect

INSTALLATION

Before using your phone, carefully peel the protective film off the display. The film protects the handset window during shipment and is not necessary to any phone function.

SELECTING ALOCATION

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. Select a location that is:Ô

near an accessible AC outlet

near a 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.

The handset antenna is located on the back, above the ringer speaker. For maximum communication range, do not hold the handset in such a way as to cover the antenna by your hand. Also, place the handset in the upright position while not in use so the antenna can pick up the signals from the base.

When there is obstacle such as metal or concrete wall between the handset and the base, the operation might be affected. Try to keep free from obstruction.

8

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 have the telephone company update the wiring for you. You must use compatible modular jacks that are compliant with Part 68 of FCC Rules.Ô

On a Desk Top

1.Plug one end of the supplied long modular cord into the TEL LINE jack on the back of the base.

2.Plug the modular cord’s other end into a modular phone line jack.

3.Insert the supplied AC adapter’s barrel plug into the DC IN 9V jack on the back of the base.

4.Route the adapter’s cord through the strain relief slot on the base, then plug the adapter into a standard AC outlet.

On a Wall Plate or Wall

To mount the phone directly on a wall, you need two screws (not supplied) with heads that fit into the keyhole slots on the bracket. Drill two holes 315/16 inches apart. Thread a screw into each hole, letting the heads extend about1/8 inch.

1.Make the AC adapter and the short telephone line cord through the hole on the bracket.

2.Slide the bracket into the notches on the base.

3.Plug the adapter into a standard AC outlet. Hook the cord on the notch of the bracket.

Ô NOTEÔ

The USOC number of the jack to be installed is RJ11C (or RJ11W for a wall plate jack).

CAUTION

You must use

!a Class 2 power source

that supplies 9V DC and delivers at least 350mA. 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.

Installation

9

Installation

To remove, push up a tab on the wall mount adapter asshown.

4.Plug the telephone line cord into the telephone outlet.

5. For a wall plate, align the base’s keyhole slots with the wall

plate studs and slide the base

downward to secure it.

For direct wall mounting, align

the base’s keyhole slots with the mounting screws and slide

the base downward to secure it.

CONNECTING/CHARGING THEBATTERYPACK

The phone comes with a rechargeable nickel-metalhydride(Ni-MH)battery pack. Before using your phone, you must charge it for about15–20hours.

1.Press down and slide off the battery 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), then place the battery pack in the compartment.

4.Replace the cover.

To charge the battery pack, place the handset on the base. The CHARGE indicator on the base lights.

Recharge the battery pack when

Low Battery flashes on the display.

10

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

Recharging the Battery Pack

If the battery pack becomes weak during a call, Low Battery flashes. When this happens, you cannot make a call until you recharge the battery pack.!

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.)

About once a month, fully discharge the battery by keeping the handset off the base until Low Battery flashes on the display. Otherwise, the battery pack loses its ability to fully recharge.

Using a damp cloth, clean the charging contacts on the handset about once a month.

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

The supplied battery pack should last for 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,800 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.o

! IMPORTANT!

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 connected.

oWARNINGo

Dispose of the old battery pack promptly and properly. Do not burn or bury it. There is a risk of explosion if battery is replaced by an incorrect type. Dispose of used batteries according to the instructions.
