CID-944Caller ID with Call Waiting ID

OWNER’S MANUAL — Please read before using this equipment.

Your RadioShack Caller ID (CID) with Call Waiting ID displays the caller's telephone number (and name, if available in your area) and the current date and time, as provided by your local phone company to Caller ID service subscriber. (The date and time are set with your first incoming Caller ID call.)

Your Caller ID stores and displays up to 64 single (number only) or multiple (name and number) Caller ID records. It uses the latest integrated circuit recording technology, so your stored Caller ID records are protected if AC power fails.

Callback — lets you call back a number stored in the CID.

Multiple Extension Capacity — lets you connect more than one CID to the same phone line.

New Call Indicator — lets you know when new calls have been recorded.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

To use this 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.

FCC INFORMATION

readability.

Two View Angle Options — lets you select the desired view angle using the stand.

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

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 the Caller ID.

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

Your CID complies 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 on the bottom of the CID.

Note: You must not connect your CID to:

coin-operatedsystems

party-linesystems

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 telephone service.

This CID 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. 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 TV or radio's 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.

Contact your local RadioShack store if the problem continues.

ˆ Preparation

CONNECTING THE CID

The CID connects to any modular phone jack and your phone. You can also connect it to an answering machine.

Connecting to a Single-LinePhone

1.Disconnect the telephone line cord from the phone and plug it into the CID's LINE jack.

2.Plug one end of the supplied line cord into the CID's PHONE jack.

3.Plug the other end of the cord into the phone's jack.

Connecting to an Answering Machine

1.Disconnect the phone line cord that connects your answering machine to the phone line from the answering machine's jack. Then plug it into the CID's LINE jack.

2.Plug one end of the supplied line cord into the CID's PHONE jack.

3.Plug the cord's other end into the answering machine's jack.

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

Note: If you subscribe to Call Waiting service with your telephone company and you receive a new Call Waiting call at the same time your answering machine is recording another call, the Call Waiting information sent by the phone company disconnects the recording.

CONNECTING POWER AND SETTING UP THE CID

To power the CID, you must connect it to AC power using the supplied AC adapter. The CID will then prompt you to set the display language and your local area code.

You can use the CID without setting the area code, but you will not be able to use the callback feature (see “Using Callback” on Page 4).

Cautions:

You must use a Class 2 power source that supplies

!9V DC and delivers at least 200 mA. Its center tip must be set to negative and its plug must fit the CID's

DC 9V 200mA jack. The supplied adapter meets these specifications. Using an adapter that does not meet these specifications could damage the CID or the adapter.

Always connect the AC adapter to the CID before you connect it to AC power. When you finish, disconnect the adapter from AC power before you disconnect it from the CID.

1.Plug the supplied AC adapter's barrel plug into the DC 9V 200mA jack on the back of the CID.

2.Route the adapter's cord through the strain relief on the bottom of the CID.

3.Connect the other end of the adapter to a standard AC outlet. The CID displays SET LANGUAGE for a few seconds, thenENGLISH (the default display language) flashes for about 2 minutes.

4.To select a different language, while ENGLISH appears, pressREVIEW 8once to displayFRENCH or twice to displaySPANISH.

Notes:

The display shows ENGLISH again if you pressREVIEW 8 a third time.

If you do not press a key within 2 minutes, the CID automatically selects English, then beeps once and displays 12:00AM 1/01. To select another language, disconnect then reconnect AC power and repeat Step 4.

5.Press REVIEW 9 to store the selected language. The CID beeps once,000 andSET AREA CODE appear. The first0 flashes.

6.Within 2 minutes, repeatedly press REVIEW 8 until the first digit of your area code appears, then pressREVIEW 9. The second0 flashes.

2

Notes:

If you make a mistake while setting the area code, press DELETE. The cursor moves to the previous digit of the area code. Repeat Step 6.

If you do not press a key within 2 minutes, the CID automatically sets the area code to 000. If this happens, disconnect then reconnect AC power and repeat Steps4–6.

7.Repeat Step 6 to set the second and third digits of your area code, then press CALLBACK. The CID beeps and displays12:00AM 1/01 or the last date/time you used the CID.

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

RESETTING THE CID

Before you use the CID the first time or if your CID stops working properly, use a straightened paper clip to press RESET on the bottom of the CID to reset it.

Note: Resetting the CID does not erase stored Caller ID information.

MOUNTING THE CID

You can place the CID on a level surface (such as a desk, shelf, or table) using the supplied stand, or you can mount the CID on a wall.

Using the Stand

1. Press and insert the tabs at the right and left sides of

the stand into the upper right and left slots on the

bottom of the CID, then

press the stand's upper tab into the first center slot on

the CID bottom.

RESET

For a more inclined viewing angle, press and insert the

tabs into the lower left and Stand right slots, then press the

stand's upper tab into the second center slot.

2.Route the two line cords and AC power cord through the slots on the bottom of the stand.

Wall-Mounting

1.Drill two 1/8-inch(3.5 mm) diameter holes, 213/16 inches (72 mm) apart into the wall.

2.Thread a screw (not sup-

plied) into each hole, letting the heads extend about 1/8 inch (3.5 mm) from the wall.

3.Align the keyhole slots on the bottom of the CID with the screws and slide the CID down.

ˆ Operation

ADJUSTING THE DISPLAY CONTRAST

To lighten or darken the display, repeatedly press CONTRAST. The CID beeps when it reaches the darkest or lightest display.

RECEIVING AND STORING CALLS

Caller ID is a service provided by your telephone company. When you subscribe to this service, the telephone company sends the caller's telephone number (and name, if available) and the call's date and time between the first and second rings. The CID receives and

displays this information for each call and updates the display with the current date and time.

The display also shows if caller information is not available or if the number is blocked by the sender (see “Displayed Call Information” on Page 4). Your CID saves up to 64 call records, then replaces the oldest call record with each new one.

During an incoming call, CALL appears, the green indicator above the display lights, thenNEW CALL and the total number of new calls appear. The green indicator turns off after you review all calls.

Note: If your phone has a hold feature, we do not recommend using hold for very long. The Caller ID information sent by the phone company might disconnect a caller on hold if a new call comes in.

If you subscribe to your phone company's message waiting service and you have messages waiting, the red indicator and flash slowly until you retrieve the message.

If you are using the telephone when a new call comes in and you subscribe to your telephone company’s Call Waiting service, and the green indicator flash, indicating that a new call is being received.

If the green indicator lights while the phone is ringing and you see - PRIVATE CALL-,the caller is blocking their name or telephone number from being sent.

If you receive more than one call from the same phone number, and the number of calls appear.

If your phone company sends information indicating that the incoming call is long distance, appears.

REVIEWING CALL RECORDS

Each time you receive a call, the CID saves a call record that you can see while you are on the phone or review later. Each record includes the time and date of the call, the order in which it was received, and the caller's telephone number and name (if available).

To scroll through the records, repeatedly press REVIEW 8or9.

Notes:

If no call information is stored, NO CALLS appears when you pressREVIEW 8 or9.

If you do not press a button within 20 seconds, the CID automatically returns to the time and date display.

After you review all calls, -END OF LIST- appears. Press eitherREVIEW key to view the calls again.

ˆ Care

To enjoy your CID for a long time:

Keep the CID dry. If it gets wet, wipe it dry immediately.

Use and store the CID only in normal temperature environments.

Handle the CID gently and carefully. Don’t drop it.

Keep the CID away from dust and dirt.

Wipe the CID with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it looking new.

Modifying or tampering with the CID’s internal components can cause a malfunction and invalidate its warranty. If your CID is not performing as it should, take it to your local RadioShack store for assistance. If the trouble is affecting the telephone lines, the phone company can ask you to disconnect your CID until you have resolved the problem.

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 FCC requirements. However, lightning striking the phone line can damage your CID.

Lightning damage is not common. Nevertheless, if you live in an area that has severe electrical storms, we suggest you unplug your CID during storms to reduce the possibility of damage.
