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 2-LineCID is ETL listed to UL standards and meets all applicable FCC requirements.

4

Important Information

FCC INFORMATION

We have designed your Caller ID (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 your CID.

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 a device from the line.

Your CID complies with Part 68 of the FCC Rules. You must, upon request, provide the FCC registration number and the REN to your phone company. Both numbers are on the bottom of the CID.

You must not connect your CID to:

coin-operatedsystems

party-linesystems

Important Information

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 phone service.

This CID complies with the limits for a Class B digital device as specified in Part 15 of the 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.

6

Important Information

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 CID 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.

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 the FCC requirements. However, lightning striking the telephone or power lines can damage your CID.

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

ˆ Features

Your RadioShack 2-LineCaller ID (CID) is a combination of two Caller IDs. Its two separate displays and function keys for each line let you view call records easily. It stores and displays up to 100 multiple (name and number) ornumber-onlyCaller ID records for two telephone lines (50 for each line). The CID displays the caller’s telephone number (and name, if available in your area) and the date and time the call was received, as provided by your local phone company to Caller ID service subscribers.

Note: Check with your local phone company regarding name service availability.

Your CID includes these features:

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

Trilingual Operation — lets you select English, French, or Spanish as the message display.

8

Features

Call Counter — shows the number of calls you have received.

New Call Indicator — lets you see at a glance that you have new calls.

Clock — displays the current time and date as provided to Caller ID service subscribers by your local telephone company.

Reviewing Scrolling — lets you easily scroll through all records in Caller ID memory.

Contrast Control — lets you adjust the display contrast to match your preference.

Message Waiting — tells you when you have received 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.

ˆ Preparation

INSTALLING BATTERIES/ SETUP

You need six AAA batteries (not supplied) to power the CID. For the longest operation and best performance, we recommend alkaline batteries, available at your local RadioShack store.

Cautions:

Always use fresh batteries of the required size and recommended type.

Do not mix old and new batteries, different types of batteries (alkaline, standard, or rechargeable), or rechargeable batteries of different capacities.

Follow these steps to install batteries.

1.Use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the battery compartment screw on the bottom of the CID and slide off the cover.

10

Preparation

2.Insert six 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, SET LANGUAGE flashes briefly, thenENGLISH (the default display language) flashes for about 10 seconds.

Note: If you do not press any button for about 10 seconds, the CID automatically selects English and the time and date appear.

4.To select another language, press REVIEW 8.FRENCH flashes. PressREVIEW 8 until the desired language flashes.

5.Press REVIEW 9 to store the selected language. Or, after about 10 seconds, the CID automatically stores the displayed language.

12:00AM 1/01 appears.

6.Replace the cover and secure it with the screw.

When flashes or the display dims, replace the batteries.

Preparation

11

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

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

Notes:

Before you replace the batteries, have fresh ones on hand. If you do not install new batteries within about 2 minutes after removing the old ones, the CID records and the date and time will be lost. The records cannot be replaced, but the date and time will automatically reset when you receive the next call.

Unplug both modular line cords from the CID before you replace the batteries.

To reset the language, hold down REVIEW 8 and9 untilSET LANGUAGE flashes briefly thenENGLISH flashes on the display. Then repeat Steps4–5to set the language.

12

Preparation

ADJUSTING THE DISPLAY’S CONTRAST

Your CID has eight display contrast settings (0–7).

Follow these steps to adjust the display’s contrast.

1.Hold down DELETE andREVIEW 9 untilCONTRAST X (X equals the current contrast setting) appears.

2.Continue to hold down DELETE and pressREVIEW 8 or9 to select the desired contrast setting.

3.Release DELETE. The date and time appear.

CONNECTING TO THE PHONE LINE

The CID connects to your phone and phone line using four modular telephone line connectors. If your phone line does not have a modular jack, you can update the wiring yourself using adapters available at your local RadioShack store. Or, you can have the telephone company update your telephone wiring for you.

Preparation

13

Notes:

If you connect the CID to only one phone line, the CID displays Caller ID information for only that line.

The USOC number of the jack to be installed is RJ11C (for a single-linephone jack) or RJ14C (for atwo-linephone jack).

One two-linemodular cord and onesingle-linemodular cord are supplied. Thetwo-linecord has four pins inside the jack. Theone-linecord has two pins inside the jack.

ˆ Operation

INCOMING CALLS

When you subscribe to Caller ID service from your phone company, the phone company sends the caller’s phone number (and name, if available) and the call’s time and date between the first and second rings. Your CID receives and displays this information for each call and updates the current date and time. You cannot manually set the date and time.

CALL and the call indicator flash when you have an incoming call, and the call record appears for 20 seconds, then the number of new calls appears. The LINE 1 or LINE 2 indicator flashes to show which line received the call and continue to flash until you review all calls.

NEW flashes and the LINE 1 or LINE 2 indicator flashes to show that you have received new calls since the last time you reviewed the stored records.
