IMPORTANT CALLER ID INFORMATION

To use the phone's Caller ID and Call Waiting with Caller ID features, you must be in an area where those services are available and you must subscribe to those services through your local phone company. Where Caller ID is offered, one or more options are generally available:

We have designed your phone to conform to federal regulations, and you can connect it to most telephone lines. However, each phone (and 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 phone.

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 phone 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 your phone.

Note: You must not connect your phone to:

Important Information

Important:

Cordless phones such as this one require AC power to operate. When the AC power is off, you cannot dial out or receive incoming calls using your phone. For this reason, the phone should not be your only telephone. To be safe, you should also have a phone that does not require AC power to operate (not a cordless phone) so you can still make and receive calls if there is an AC power failure.

Some cordless phones operate at frequencies that might cause interference to nearby TVs and VCRs. To minimize or prevent such interference, the base of the cordless phone should not be placed near or on top of a TV or VCR.

Your cordless phone operates on standard radio frequencies, as allocated by the FCC. Even though your phone's access protection code prevents unauthorized use of your phone line, it is possible for other radio units operating on similar frequencies within a certain area to unintentionally intercept your conversations and/or cause interference. This possible lack of privacy can occur with any cordless phone.

THE FCC WANTS YOU TO KNOW

In the unlikely event that your phone causes problems on the phone line, the phone company can temporarily discontinue 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 proce-

dures that could affect the operation of this telephone. The telephone company notifies you of these changes in advance, so you can take the necessary steps to prevent interruption of your telephone service.

LIGHTNING

Your telephone has built-inprotection circuits to reduce the risk of damage from surges in telephone line and power line current. These protection circuits meet or exceed the FCC requirements. However, lightning striking the telephone or power lines can damage your telephone.

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

FCC STATEMENT

The phone 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 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 RadioShack store if the problem still exists.

ˆ Features

Your RadioShack Digital 900 MHz Dual Keypad Cordless Speakerphone operates on the 900 MHz band, which means less interference, clearer sound, and greater range than 46/49 MHz cordless telephones. The Caller ID records each caller's telephone number (and name, if available in your area) and the date and time of the call. If you subscribe to Call Waiting with Caller ID service, your phone shows you the incoming caller information, even when you are already on the phone.

Your phone’s feature’s include:

Dual Keypad — let you use the keypad on the base or on the handset to make and answer calls or program the phone's features.

Speakerphone — lets you hold a conversation handsfree from the base intercom speaker.

30-NumberMemory Dialing— lets you store 30 numbers in memory (20 in the handset, 10 in the base) for easy dialing.

Caller ID Memory — stores up to 50 Caller ID records on the handset.

Dual Displays — lets you view a Caller ID record on the handset or base display.

Two-WayIntercom/Paging System— lets you send a signal from the base to the handset, or from the handset to the base, to locate the handset or page someone using it away from the base. If someone answers the page, you can use the phone as an intercom and speak to the person on the handset.

20 Channels — automatically selects a clear channel when you make or answer a call. You can also manually change channels during a call.

Headset Jack — lets you connect an optional headset for handsfree convenience.

Volume Controls — let you adjust the volume you hear through the handset and speakerphone.

Ringer Volume Control — lets you select from four ringer tone/volume settings or turn it off on the handset. On the base you can select high or low ringer, or turn the ringer off.

Security Access-ProtectionCode—helps prevent other cordless phone users from using your phone line while the handset is off the base.

Long Battery Life — the supplied battery pack (when fully charged) provides about 6 hours of talk time or 7 days of standby time.

Auto Talk — you can set the phone so you can answer a call simply by lifting the handset from the base.

Any Key Answer — you can set the phone so you can press any key to answer a call when the handset is away from the base.

Redial — lets you quickly redial any of the last three numbers dialed on the handset. You can also redial the last number you dialed on the base.

Hearing-AidCompatibility— lets you use your phone with hearing aids that have a T (telephone) switch.

Facedown/Faceup Handset Charging — you can charge the handset on the base facedown or faceup.

ˆ Installation

Note: The base's display is protected during shipment by a piece of film. Carefully peel off this film before using your phone for the first time.

MOUNTING THE PHONE

You can place the phone's base on a desk or table, mount it on a standard wall plate, or mount it directly on a wall.

Choose a location that is:

near an AC outlet

near a modular telephone line jack

out of the way of normal activities

away from electrical machinery, electrical appliances, metal walls or filing cabinets, wireless intercoms, alarms, and room monitors

away from other cordless phones

The base's location affects the phone's range. If you have a choice of several locations, try each to see which provides the best performance.

Cautions:

You must use a Class 2 power

!source that supplies 9V AC

and delivers at least 350 mA. Its center tip must be set to positive and its plug must fit the phone's

jack. The supplied adapter meets these specifications. Using an adapter that does not meet these specifications could damage the phone or the adapter.

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

adapter from AC power before you disconnect it from the phone.

Your telephone connects directly to a modular telephone line jack. If your telephone wiring does not have a modular jack, you can update the wiring yourself using jacks and adapters (available at your local RadioShack store), or have the telephone company update the wiring for you. You must use compatible modular jacks that are compliant with Part 68 of FCC Rules.

Note: The USOC number of the jack to be installed is RJ11C (or RJ11W for a wall plate jack).

6.Plug the adapter into a standard AC outlet.

7.Lift the base’s antenna to a vertical position.

Note: To mount the phone directly on a wall, you need two screws (not supplied) with heads that fit into the keyhole slots on the bottom of the base.

Follow the steps under “On a Wall Plate or Wall,” then apply these additional instructions.

1.Drill two holes 315/16 inches (100 mm) apart. Then thread a screw into each hole, letting the heads extend about1/8 inch (3 mm) from the wall.

2.Plug one end of the supplied long modular cord into the TEL LINE jack on the back of the base and route the adapter cable and modular cords through the grooves on the bracket.

Installation

CONNECTING, CHARGING, AND REPLACING THE BATTERY PACK

The phone comes with a rechargeable nick- el-cadmium(Ni-Cd)battery pack in the handset. Before using your phone, you must connect the battery pack, then charge it for about 24 hours.

1.Press down and slide off the battery pack compartment cover.

2.Lift the battery pack out of the compartment.

3.Plug the battery pack's connector into the socket in the compartment, (the connector fits only one way), replace the battery pack, and replace the cover.

To charge the battery pack, place the handset either faceup or facedown on the base.

The CHARGE/IN USE indicator on the base lights and JejWb0&& appears.

Important: Be sure the battery pack is properly connected before you try to charge it. The CHARGE/IN USE indicator lights when the handset is on the base even if the battery pack is not properly connected.

Recharge the battery pack when Bemý8Wjj[ho flashes.

Notes:

When you first use the phone after charging or recharging the battery pack, the phone might not work and you might hear a beep when you press TALK. Return the handset to the base for about 5 seconds to reset the security accessprotection code.

If the handset or the base loses power, the security access-protectioncode might be lost. To reset the code, return

the handset to the base for about 5 seconds.

Using a pencil eraser, clean the charging contacts on the handset and base about once a month.

If the battery pack becomes weak during

a call, the handset beeps every 3 seconds and Bemý8Wjj[ho flashes. When this happens, you cannot make a call until you recharge the battery pack.

About once a month, fully discharge the

battery by keeping the handset off the base until Bemý 8Wjj[ho flashes. Otherwise, the battery pack loses its ability to fully recharge.

If the display is blank and the phone does not work, recharge the battery pack. (The battery power might be too low to light the display.)

If you are not going to use your phone for an extended period of time, disconnect the battery pack. This increases the battery pack's usable life.

The supplied battery pack should last about a year. If the battery pack does not hold a charge for more than 2 hours after an overnight charge, replace it with a new 3.6-volt,600 mAh battery pack with a connector that fits the socket in the battery compartment. You can order a replacement battery pack through your local RadioShack store. Install the new battery pack and charge it for about 24 hours.

Note: To avoid losing information stored in memory, replace the battery within 2 minutes.

Warning: Dispose of the old battery pack promptly and properly. Do not burn or bury it (see “Battery Safety Instructions” on Page 5 for additional information on proper battery handling).

Installation

11

If you have trouble replacing the battery pack, take the phone to your local RadioShack store for assistance.

Important: The EPA certified RBRC® Battery Recycling Seal on thenickel-cadmium(Ni-Cd)battery indicates RadioShack is voluntarily participating in an

industry program to collect and recycle these batteries at the end of their useful life, when taken out of service in the United States or Canada. The RBRC program provides a convenient alternative to placing used Ni-Cdbatteries into the trash or the municipal waste stream, which may be illegal in your area. Please call1-800-THE-SHACK(1-800-843-7422)for information onNi-Cdbattery recycling and disposal bans/restrictions in your area. RadioShack’s involvement in this program is part of the company’s commitment to preserving our environment and conserving our natural resources.

USING A HEADSET

You can talk with handsfree convenience using an optional headset that has a 3/32-inch(2.5-mm)plug. Your local RadioShack store has a variety of suitable headsets to chose from.

To connect the headset, open the rubber cover on the side of the handset, then insert the headset's plug into the jack.

Notes:

Connecting a headset disconnects the handset's earpiece and microphone.

VOL/CID 8 or9 on the handset also controls the connected headset's volume.

If you place the handset on the base to recharge it while the headset is connected, be sure the handset seats properly.

With a headset connected, you can make or answer calls as usual using the keys on the

handset. You can also make or answer calls by pressing the SPEAKER button located on the base.

You can use a handset holder (available from your local RadioShack store) to hang the handset on your belt for greater convenience.

When you finish using the headset, disconnect it from the handset and close the rubber cover to protect the jack.
