Important Information:

To use this Caller ID, 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 Caller ID displays the caller’s name only if that option is available in your area.

The actual number of Caller ID records your Caller ID will store depends on the amount of Caller ID information sent by the phone company.

FCC INFORMATION

We have designed your CID-932to conform to federal regulations, and you can connect it to most telephone lines. However, each device, such as a telephone or 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 device.

4

43-932.fmPage 5 Wednesday, January 12, 2000 9:56 AM

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

Your CID-932complies 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 located on the bottom of yourCID-932.

Note: You must not connect yourCID-932to:

coin-operatedsystems

party-linesystems

most electronic key telephone systems

Your telephone company may make changes in its facilities, equipment, operations or procedures that could affect the proper functioning of your equipment. If they do, you will be notified in advance to give you an opportunity to maintain uninterrupted telephone service.

This equipment 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.

5

43-932.fmPage 6 Wednesday, January 12, 2000 9:56 AM

However, your equipment 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 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

Consult your local Radio Shack store if the problem still exists.

Always remove old or weak batteries. They can leak chemicals that can damage electronic circuits.

Follow these steps to install the battery.

9 VOLT BATTER Y

Note: The screw is packed separately. Insert the screw into the battery compartment cover when you first install the battery.

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

2.Lift the cover in the direction of the arrow.

3.Place a fresh battery in the compartment, as indicated by the polarity symbols (+ and) marked inside.

4.Replace the battery compartment cover and tighten the screw.
