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:

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.
