FEATURES

Your RadioShack CID 2901/2902 Mini Caller ID stores and displays up to 79 multiple (name and number) or number-onlyCaller ID records. It 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 service subscribers.

It also includes these features.

VIP Call List — lets you save up to 20 important records so they will not be deleted when you delete other calls from the system’s memory.

New Call Indicator — flashes when you have at least one new call you have not reviewed.

Call Summary — displays the number of new and total calls you received.

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

Three-LineLiquid Crystal Display— makes it easy to see Caller ID information and the current time and date.

Record Scrolling — lets you easily look through all records in memory.

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

Contrast Control — lets you adjust the display contrast for the best readability.

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

This system has been tested and found to comply with all applicable FCC standards and is ETL listed.

WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire or shock hazard, do not expose this product to rain or moisture.

CAUTION

!

RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK. DO NOT OPEN.

CAUTION: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK, DO NOT REMOVE COVER OR BACK. NOUSER-SERVICEABLEPARTS INSIDE. REFER SERVICING TO QUALIFIED PERSONNEL.

This symbol is intended to alert you to the presence of uninsulated dangerous voltage within the product’s enclosure that might be of sufficient magnitude to constitute a risk of electric shock. Do not open the product’s case.

This symbol is intended to inform you that important operating and maintenance instructions are included

! in the literature accompanying this product.

To use this system, you must be in an area where Caller ID service is available, and you must subscribe to the service.

Where Caller ID is offered, one or more of the following options are generally available:

caller’s number only

caller’s name only

• caller’s name and number

Your system displays the caller’s name only if that option is available in your area.

The actual number of Caller ID records your system stores depends on the amount of Caller ID information sent by the phone company.

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 (three in rural areas), your telephone might not ring. 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 cause 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 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.

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.

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.

The FCC Wants You to Know

In the unlikely event that your system causes problems on the phone line, the telephone company can temporarily disconnect your service. If this happens, the telephone company attempts to notify you as soon as possible and advise you of your right to file a complaint with the FCC.

Also, the telephone company can make changes to its lines, equipment, operation, or procedures that could affect the operation of the 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.

2.Follow Steps 1-4of “Installing Batteries.”

3.Reconnect the modular line cords.

CONNECTING THE SYSTEM

Your system connects to any modular phone jack and phone. You can also connect it to an answering machine. Your system is designed to be connected to the telephone network using a compatible modular jack that is compliant with Part 68 of FCC Rules.

The USOC number of the jack to be installed is RJ11C (for both telephone line jacks).

Lightning

Connecting to a Single-LinePhone

Your system has built-inprotection circuits to reduce the risk of damage from surges in phone line or power line current. These protection circuits meet or exceed FCC requirements. However, lightning striking the phone line can damage your system.

Lightning damage is not common. However, if you live in an area that has severe electrical storms, we suggest you unplug your system when storms approach to reduce the possibility of damage.

INSTALLING BATTERIES

Your CID requires four AAA batteries (not supplied) for power and to protect its memory in the event of a power failure. For the best performance and longest life, we recommend RadioShack alkaline batteries.

Cautions:

Use only 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.

When you replace the batteries, do not press any buttons on the system until you have installed fresh batteries. Doing so could erase all stored information.

When replacing the batteries, have fresh ones on hand before you begin. If you do not install the new batteries within about 2 minutes after removing the old ones, you will lose all the information stored in the system.

Follow these steps to install batteries.

1.Use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the screw in the battery compartment cover.

2.Press and slide the battery compartment cover in the direction of the arrow.

3.Put four fresh AAA batteries into the compartment as indicated by the polarity symbols (+ and –)marked inside.

4.Close the cover and secure it with the screw.

Warning: Dispose of dead batteries promptly and properly. Do not bury or burn them.

Replacing the Batteries

When BATT appears or the display dims, replace the batteries.

1.Unplug both modular line cords from the back of the system, then wait a few seconds.

1.Disconnect the telephone line cord from the phone and plug it into the system’s TO LINE jack.

2.Plug one end of the supplied line cord into the system’s TO PHONEjack.

3.Plug the other end of the cord into the phone’s jack.

Connecting to a Two-LinePhone

To record information about calls received on a two-linephone, you can connect two systems using a triplex adapter (not supplied), available at your local RadioShack store. Each system only records information about calls received on the line to which it is connected.

L2 L1+2

Systems

Triplex Adapter

Follow these steps to connect two systems to a two-linephone.

1.Disconnect the telephone line cord from the modular phone jack on the wall and plug it into L1 + L2 on the triplex adapter.

2.Plug the triplex adapter into the modular phone jack.

3.Plug one end of the supplied line cord into the TO LINE jack on one of the systems.

4.Plug the other end of the cord into either L1 or L2 on the triplex adapter.

5.Repeat Steps 3 and 4 to connect another system to the other jack (L1 or L2) on the triplex adapter.

Connecting to an Answering Machine

1.Plug one end of the supplied telephone line cord into the modular wall jack. Then plug the other end into the system’s TO LINE jack.

2.Plug one end of another modular cord (not supplied) into the system’s TO PHONE jack. Plug the cord’s other end into the answering machine’s line jack.

4.Set your answering machine to answer after two or more rings. This gives the system time to record the call information that the phone company sends between the first and second rings.

MOUNTING THE SYSTEM

You can set the system flat on a desk, shelf, or table or use the supplied mounting bracket to set the system at an angle. You can also use the bracket to mount the system to a wall.

Attaching the Mounting Bracket

1.Align the keyhole slots on the bottom of the system with the hooks on the mounting bracket.

2.Gently push the bracket up into the system to secure it.

To remove the bracket from the system, press up from the bottom of the system until the bracket snaps off.

Mounting on Wall

To mount the system on the wall, you need two screws (not supplied) with heads larger than the keyhole slots on the back of the mounting bracket.

1.Drill two holes 17/16 inches (37 mm) apart at the mounting location. Thread a screw into each hole, letting the heads extend about1/8 inch (3mm) from the mounting surface.

2.Attach the mounting bracket to the system (see “Attaching the Mounting Bracket”).

SETTING THE TIME

The time and date are set with your first incoming Caller ID and updated with every new call. To toggle between 12or 24-hourtime formats, repeatedly pressDELETE while the system is not in use.

RECEIVING AND STORING CALLS

Caller ID is a service provided by your telephone company. When you subscribe to this service, the telephone company sends the caller’s telephone number (and name, if available) and the call’s date and time between the first and second rings. The system receives and displays this information for each call and updates the display with the current date and time. Your system saves up to 79 call records, then replaces the oldest call record with each new one. Repeat calls are stored separately, instead of all on the same record.

During an incoming call, the red new call indicator flashes quickly while the phone is ringing, then the number of new and total calls appear. The indicator flashes slowly until all calls are reviewed.

REVIEWING CALL RECORDS

Each time you receive a call, the system saves a call record in memory that you can see while you are on the phone, or review later. Each call record includes the time and date of the call, the call number (order in which the call is received), the caller’s telephone number, and the caller’s name (if available).

To scroll through the call records, repeatedly press (or hold down) either REVIEW key.

Notes:

If no call information is stored, -NO CALL- appears when you press eitherREVIEW key.

If you do not press a button within about 10 seconds, the system automatically returns to the time and date display.

After you review all calls, -END OF LIST- appears. Press eitherREVIEW key to view again.
