Information

To use this Caller ID (CID), 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 CID displays the caller's name only if that option is available in your area. The actual number of Caller ID records your CID will store depends on the amount of Caller ID information sent by the phone company.

Your CID is ETL listed to UL standards and meets all applicable FCC standards.

Important Information

FCC INFORMATION

We have designed your CID to conform to federal regulations, and you can connect it to most telephone lines. However, each CID (and each device, such as a telephone or answering machine) that you connect to the telephone line draws power from the line. We refer to this power draw as the device's ringer equivalence number or REN. The REN is on the bottom of the Caller ID.

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 CID 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 CID.

Note: You must not connect your CID to:

most electronic key telephone systems

In the unlikely event that your CID 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 CID. The phone company notifies you of these changes in advance, so you can take the necessary steps to prevent interruption of your telephone service.

THE FCC WANTS YOU TO KNOW

This CID 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

Important Information

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.

Contact your local RadioShack store if the problem continues.

LIGHTNING

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

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

ˆ Features

Your RadioShack CID 2903 Caller ID (CID) is the latest in telephone technology. The CID 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. (The date and time are set with your first incoming Caller ID call.)

Your Caller ID stores and displays up to 80 single (number only) or multiple (name and number) Caller ID records, and includes these features:

Call Waiting Caller ID — displays information about an incoming call while you are on the phone.

Callback — lets you call back a number stored in the CID.

New Call Indicator — lets you know when new calls are recorded.

Multiple Extension Capacity — lets you connect more than one CID to the same phone line.

Features

Call Waiting Indicator — displays the Caller ID information for Call Waiting calls.

Call Summary — displays the number of calls you received.

Message Waiting — displays when you have a voice mail message (if you subscribe to the message waiting service from your local phone company).

Note: The Message Waiting feature does not work with stutter dial tone service. Check with your telephone company for the type of service you have.

VIP Call List — lets you save up to 10 caller ID records in a VIP list, and sounds an alert tone when any of those callers call.

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

Low Battery Indicator — lets you know when it is time to replace the batteries.

Delete — lets you erase Caller ID records one at a time or all at once.

ˆ Preparation

INSTALLING BATTERIES/ SETUP

Your CID requires four AAA batteries (not supplied) to protect its memory when AC power fails or is disconnected. For the longest life and best performance, 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.

Follow these steps to install batteries and program the CID.

Caution: To avoid electrical shock, make sure the CID is unplugged from the telephone line and AC power before removing the battery compartment cover.
