ˆ Important

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:

coin-operatedsystems

party-linesystems

Important Information

5

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

6

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.

8

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.

10

Preparation

When replacing the batteries, make sure the CID is unplugged from the telephone line and AC power, and unplug both modular line cords from the back of the CID.

Note: When replacing the batteries, have fresh ones on hand before you begin. If you do not install the new batteries within 2 minutes after removing the old ones, you will lose the time, date, and area code stored in the CID. (The Caller ID information, however, remains stored in the CID's memory.)

1.Use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the screw from the battery compartment cover, then slide off the cover.

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

3.Turn the CID over so you can see the

display. After you install the batteries, 6(7#$5($#&2'( and333 appears. The first3 flashes.

4.Within 2 minutes, repeatedly press REVIEW 8 until the first digit of your area code appears, then press

Preparation

11

REVIEW 9 to set the digit. The second3 flashes.

Notes:

If you make a mistake while setting the area code, press DELETE. The cursor moves to the previous digit of the area code. Then repeat Step 4 to reset the area code.

If you do not press any key within 2 minutes in this step or Step 5, the CID automatically sets the area

code to 000. If this happens, press and hold REVIEW 8and9 simultaneously until6(7 $5($ &2'( appears. Then reset the area code.

To select another area code, press and hold REVIEW 8and9 simultaneously untilVHW#DUHD#FRGH appears.

5.Repeat Step 4 to set the second and third digits of your area code.

6.When you set the area code's last digit, press REVIEW 9, the CID beeps once and45=33$0#4234#appears.

12

Preparation

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

When %$71#/2: flashes or the display dims, replace the batteries.

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

Caution: Always remove old or weak batteries. Batteries can leak chemicals that can damage your CID.

Note: If you replaced the batteries, reconnect the phone line, AC adapter, and the phone.

CONNECTING AC POWER

Cautions:

You must use a Class 2

!power source that supplies 9V DC and delivers at least

200 mA. Its center tip must be set to negative and its plug must fit the CID's DC9V 200mA jack. The supplied adapter meets these specifications. Using an adapter that does not meet these specifications could damage the CID or the adapter.

Preparation

13

Always connect the AC adapter to the CID before you connect it to AC power. When you finish, disconnect the adapter from AC power before you disconnect it from the CID.

To power the CID, plug the supplied AC adapter's barrel plug into the DC9V 200mA jack on the back of the CID. Then connect the other end of the adapter to a standard AC outlet.

CONNECTING THE CID

The CID connects to any modular phone jack and your phone. You can also connect it to an answering machine.

Connecting to a Single-LinePhone

1.Disconnect the telephone line cord from the phone and plug it into the CID's LINE jack.

2.Plug one end of the supplied line cord into the CID's PHONE jack.

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

14

Preparation

Connecting to an Answering Machine

1.Disconnect the phone line cord from the answering machine's jack. Then plug it into the CID's LINE jack.

2.Plug one end of the supplied line cord into the CID's PHONE jack.

3.Plug the cord's other end into the answering machine's jack.

4.Set your answering machine to answer after two or more rings (see “Receiving and Storing Calls” on Page 17).

Two or more rings gives the CID time to record the call information that the phone company sends between the first and second rings.

Note: If you subscribe to Call Waiting service with your telephone company and you receive a new Call Waiting call while your answering machine is recording another call at the same time, the Call Waiting information sent by the phone company will disconnect the recording.

Preparation

15

MOUNTING THE CID

You can place the CID directly on a flat surface with the supplied stand. Or, you can mount it on a wall.

Follow these steps to mount the CID on a wall.

1.Turn the CID over, then press in the upper tabs and remove the stand.

2.Select a location near the phone line jack and mark the mounting screw locations 23/4 inch (69 mm) apart on the wall.

3.Drill two 1/8-inch(3.5 mm) holes in the wall at the marked locations.

4.Thread a screw into each hole until the head extends 1/8-inch(3.5 mm) from the wall.

16

Preparation

5.Align the two screws with the keyholes on the bottom of the CID. Slide the CID down onto the screws to secure it.

ADJUSTING THE DISPLAY CONTRAST

Your CID has four display contrast settings. To lighten or darken the display,

repeatedly press CONTRAST on the back of the CID.&2175$67 and the level4,5,6,

or 7 briefly appear.

ˆ Operation

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 CID receives and displays this information for each call and updates the display with the current date and time.

Operation

17

The display also shows if caller information is not available or if the number is blocked by the sender (see “Displayed Call Information” on Page 20). Your CID saves up to 80 call records, then replaces the oldest call record with each new one.

The indicator displays during an incoming call, and 1(:#&$//+6, appears. The Caller ID record appears for about 20 seconds, then the Caller ID and new Caller ID record totals appear.

Note: If you have a phone that has a hold feature, we do not recommend using hold for very long. The Caller ID information sent by the phone company might disconnect a caller on hold if a new call comes in.

If you subscribe to your phone company's message waiting service and you have a message(s) waiting, the indicator and 06* :$,7,1* flash slowly. This remains until you retrieve the message.

If you are using the telephone when a new call comes in and you subscribe to Call

Waiting service with your telephone company, &$// :$,7,1* and the indicator

flash, indicating that a new call is being received.

If the indicator displays while the phone is ringing and you see 35,9$7( &$//(5, the

caller is blocking their name and telephone number from being sent.

If you receive more than one call from the same phone number, 5(3($7 &$// counter and the number of calls appear.

If your phone company sends information

indicating that the incoming call is long distance, /21*#',671#&$// appears.

REVIEWING CALL RECORDS

Each time you receive a call, the CID 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 the call is received), the caller's telephone number, and the caller's name (if available).

To scroll through the call records, repeatedly press REVIEW 8 or9.

Operation

19

Notes:

If no call information is stored, 12

&$//6 appears when you press

REVIEW 8or 9.

If you do not press a button within 20 seconds, the CID automatically returns to the time and date display.

After you review all calls, (1' 2) /,67 appears. PressREVIEW 8 or9 to view the calls again.
