FEATURES

Your RadioShack CID-9414-LineDisplay Caller ID gives you access to the latest in telephone technology. It displays the current date/time and caller information as provided by your local phone company to Caller ID service subscribers. (The date and time are set with your first incoming Caller ID call.)

If you subscribe to Call Waiting and Caller ID services, the CID-941also shows you information about an incoming call when you are on the phone — even if someone is using an extension on the same line.

The CID-941includes these features:

Caller ID Memory — stores and displays up to 81 incoming phone numbers, or up to 81 incoming names and phone numbers (actual capacity depends on the information sent).

Call Waiting — displays information about an incoming call when you are on the phone.

Total Call Count — lets you know how many calls are stored in memory.

New Call Indicator — flashes to let you know one or more new calls have been received since you last reviewed the stored calls.

Dual Display — lar ge4-lineliquid crystal display shows information on the active call and Call Waiting at the same time, including the time the call came in.

Review Buttons — lets you scroll throu gh all call records in Caller ID memory.

Note: Your system requires two AA batteries (not supplied) to protect its memory.

Your system is ETL listed to UL standards and meets all applicable FCC standards.

Important Information:

To use the system’s Caller ID, and Call Waiting features you must be in an area where those services are available from your phone company, and you must subscribe to those services.

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

For your CID-941’sCaller ID memory dial feature to operate, you must receive the caller’s number.

Read This Before Installation

Your CID-941conforms to federal regulations, and you can connect it to most telephone lines. However, each device that you connect to the phone line draws power from the phone line. We refer to this power

5

draw as the device’s ringer equivalence number, or REN. The REN is on the bottom of your system.

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

FCC Statement

Your CID-941complies with Part 68 ofFCC Rules. You must, upon request, provide the FCC registration number and the REN to your telephone company. Both numbers are on the bottom of theCID-941.

Note: You must not connect your system to:

PREPARATION

INSTALLING BATTERIES

Your CID-941requires 2 AA batteries (not supplied) to protect the system’s memory during a power failure. For the best performance and longest life, we recommend RadioShack alkaline batteries.

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.

Note: When replacing the batteries, if you do not install the new batteries within one minute after removing the old ones, you will lose all information stored in theCID-941.

Follow these steps to install batteries.

1.If you are replacing the batteries, disconnect the CID-941from the telephone line.

9

43-941.fmPage 10 Friday, January 28, 2000 10:34 AM

2.Insert a flat blade screwdriver into the slot next to the battery compartment cover and gently pry it up until the cover pops off.

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

4.Replace the cover. If you replaced the batteries, reconnect the telephone line.

When appears replace the batteries.

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

Caution: If you do not plan to use theCID-941with batteries for a month or longer, remove the batteries. Batteries can leak chemicals that can destroy electronic parts.
