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 requirements.

4 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 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 Preparation

INSTALLING BATTERIES/ SETUP

You need three AAA batteries (not supplied) to power your Caller ID (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 flat-bladescrewdriver to lift and remove the battery compartment cover.

2.Insert three 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, I;J B7D=K7=; flashes briefly, then;D=B?I> (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.<H;D9> 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.

'(0&&7C '%&' appears.

6.Replace the cover.

When flashes or the display dims, replace the batteries.

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

Preparation

11

Caution: If you do not plan to use the CID for a month, remove the batteries. Batteries can leak chemicals that can destroy electronic parts.

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 the modular line cord from the CID before you replace the batteries.

To reset the language, hold down

REVIEW 8and9untilI;J B7D=K7=; flashes briefly then;D=B?I> flashes on the display. Then repeat Steps4–5to set the language.

14

Preparation

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

MOUNTING THE CID

You can place the CID on a flat surface, or you can mount it on a wall.

Follow these steps to mount the CID on a wall.

1.Select a location near the phone line jack, then use the round holes in the mounting bracket as a template to mark the mounting screw locations on the wall.

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

3.While holding the bracket against the wall, thread a screw (not supplied) through each hole in the bracket, then tighten the screws.

4.Align the slots on the back of the Caller ID with the holes on the bracket. Gently slide the CID downward to secure it.

Preparation

15

To remove the bracket from the CID, slide the bracket down then lift and remove it.

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.

97BB 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.

D;M flashes and the NEW CALL indicator flashes to show that you have received new calls since the last time you reviewed the stored records.

Operation

USING CALL REJECT

When you receive a call you do not want to answer, press CALL REJECT. The CALL REJECT indicator lights and the CID announces “We don’t accept calls of this nature. Please remove our phone number from your calling list. Thank you.”

Note: The CID displays the caller’s phone number until you delete it (see “Deleting Caller ID Records” on Page 20).

MESSAGE WAITING

Note: The message waiting feature does not work with stutter dial tone service. Check with your phone company for the type of service you have.

company sends the information after you end the current call and C;II7=; M7?J?D= appears on the display.

In some areas, callers can block the sending of their Caller ID information. When a

caller blocks the Caller ID information, # FH?L7J; 97BB¶ appears instead of the call information.

REVIEWING CALL RECORDS

Each time you receive a call, your CID stores a record that you can see while you are on the phone, or review later. Your CID saves up to 50 call records, replacing the oldest call record with a new call record.

Each call record includes the call number (order in which the call is received), the time and date of the call, the caller’s phone number (if available), and the caller’s name (if available).
