IMPORTANT CALLER ID INFORMATION

To use the CID-927’sCaller ID feature, 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

READ THIS BEFORE INSTALLATION

We have designed your CID-927to conform to federal regulations, and you can connect it to most telephone lines. However, each telephone (and each device, such as an answering machine) that you connect to the telephone line draws power from the telephone line. We refer to this power draw as the device’s ringer equivalence number, or REN. The REN is on the bottom of your telephone.

If you use more than one telephone or other device on the line, add up all the RENs. If the total is more than five, your telephones might not ring. In rural areas, a total REN of three might impair ringer operation. If ringer operation is impaired, remove one of the devices from the line.

FCC STATEMENT

Your CID-927complies with Part 68 ofFCC Rules. You must, upon request, provide the FCC registration number and REN to your telephone company. Both numbers are on the bottom of theCID-927.

Note: You must not connect your CID927 to:

coin-operatedsystems

party-linesystems

most electronic key phone systems

43-927.fmPage 4 Thursday, June 24, 1999 9:36 AM

The CID-927also complies with the limits for a Class B device as specified in Part 15 ofFCC Rules. These limits provide reasonable protection against radio and TV interference in a residential area. However, your telephone might cause TV or radio interference even when it is operating properly. To eliminate interference, you can try one or more of the following corrective measures.

Reorient or relocate the TV’s receiving antenna.

Increase the distance between the telephone and the radio and TV.

Consult your local RadioShack store if the problem still exists.

PREPARATION

INSTALLING BATTERIES

Your CID-927requires four AAA batteries (not supplied) to store and display Caller ID records. For the best performance, we recommend alkaline batteries, available at your local RadioShack store.

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.

Note: When replacing the batteries, install the new ones within 2 minutes, or theCID-927’sdate and time will be lost. (The Caller ID information, however, stays stored in theCID-927’smemory.)

1.Use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the screw on the battery compartment cover.

2.Press in the tab on the battery compartment cover and lift off the cover.

3.Put the batteries in the compartment as indicated by the polarity symbols (+ and –)marked inside.

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

Once you install the batteries,

12:00AM 1/01 appears.

The telephone company sends the correct time with each incoming call, so the correct date and time are automatically set when the CID-927receives its first call.

When flashes in the upper right corner of the display or the display dims, replace batteries.

Cautions:

Always remove old or weak batteries. Batteries can leak chemicals that can destroy electronic parts.

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

PHONE OPERATION

USING REDIAL

The redial memory holds up to 32 digits, so it can store both long-distanceand local numbers. To redial the last number, lift the handset then pressREDIAL.

REDIAL

Notes:

The redial memory only stores the last 32 digits of any number dialed.

The redial memory does not store a flash entry but stores any digits you press after FLASH (see “Using Flash”).

Note: If you do not have any special phone services, pressingFLASH might disconnect the current call.

USING TONE SERVICES ON A PULSE LINE

Some special services, such as bank- by-phone,require tone signals. If you have pulse service, follow these steps to use those special services.

1.Be sure TONE/PULSE is set to

PULSE.

2.Call the service.

3. When the service answers, press

. Any additional numbers you dial are sent as tone signals.

USING FLASH

FLASH performs the electronic equivalent of a switchhook operation for special services, such as Call Waiting.

FLASH

For example, if you have Call Waiting, press FLASH to answer an incoming call without disconnecting the current call. PressFLASH again to return to the first call.

STORING AND DIALING PRIORITY NUMBERS

You can store emergency phone numbers or the phone numbers you call most frequently in the three priority memory locations for one-touchdialing.

Each memory location can store up to 16 digits.

9

43-927.fmPage 10 Thursday, June 24, 1999 9:36 AM

Notes:

You will hear a dial tone during most steps of this procedure. The phone does not actually dial the number as you store it, but you might also hear a busy tone or recorded operator’s voice after a few seconds. This is normal.

If you do not complete a step within 15 seconds, you must start over from Step 2.

1.Press STORE.PROGRAM MODE appears.

2.Enter the phone number you want to store.

Note: If you make a mistake, hold down the switchhook for a few seconds, then release it and start over at Step 2.

3.Press M1,M2, orM3 to store the priority number.

Without hanging up, repeat Steps 2–4to store other numbers. Hang up the handset when you are finished.

To dial a priority memory number, lift the handset and press M1,M2, orM3.

Testing Stored Emergency

Numbers

If you want to test a stored emergency number (police department, fire department, ambulance), make the test call during the late evening or early morning hours to avoid peak demand periods. Remain on the line to explain the reason for your call.

Chain-Dialing

For quick recall of numbers for special services (such as alternate long-dis-tance orbank-by-phone),you can store each group of numbers in its own memory location.

When calling special services, dial the service’s main number first. At the appropriate place in the call, dial the memory number for the additional numbers you want to send.

USING THE INDEX CARD

The index card on the bottom of the handset provides a convenient place for you to record names and phone numbers for easy reference. Remove the plastic cover with a small, pointed object, such as a straightened paper clip. Write the names and numbers (in pencil in case you want to change them later), then replace the cover.
