Your RadioShack ET-1102900 MHz Digital Spread Spectrum Cordless Telephone uses advanced cordless telephone technology to give you superior audio quality and extended range.

The ET-1102’sCaller ID unit records each caller’s telephone number (and name, if available in your area) and the day and time of the call, as provided by your local phone company to Caller ID service subscribers. And, if you subscribe to Call Waiting with Caller ID, theET-1102can show you the incoming caller information, even when you are already on the phone.

Your ET-1102has these features:

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 ET-1102.To be safe, you should also have a phone that does not need AC power to operate (not a cordless phone) so you can still make and receive calls if there is an AC power failure.

When AC power is lost, the ET-1102loses the securityaccess-protectioncode connection between the base and the handset. When power is restored, put the handset on the base briefly to restore this connection so you can use the handset.

READ THIS BEFORE INSTALLATION

We have designed your phone to conform to federal regulations and you can connect it to most phone lines. However, each device that you connect to the telephone line draws power from the line. We refer to this power draw as the phone’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 the RENs. If the total is more than five, your phones 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 telephone complies with Part 68 of FCC Rules. You must, upon request, provide the FCC registration number and the REN to your phone company. These numbers are on the bottom of the base.

You must not connect your phone to any of the following:

coin-operatedsystems

party-linesystems

most electronic key phone systems

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. 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.

INSTALLATION

MOUNTING THE PHONE

You can place the ET-1102’sbase 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 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 handset’s range. If you have a choice of several locations, try each to see which provides the best performance.

Caution: The supplied RadioShack adapter was designed specifically for yourET-1102.Use only the supplied adapter.

Notes:

Your telephone connects directly to a modular phone line jack. If your phone line jack is not a modular jack, you can update the wiring yourself, using jacks and adapters available from your local RadioShack store. Or, you can let the telephone company update the wiring for you.

The USOC number of the jack to be installed is RJ11C, or RJ11W for a wall plate jack.

4.Replace the cover.

To charge the battery pack, place the handset either faceup or facedown on the base. The CHARGE indicator on the base lights and Total:00 appears on the handset display.

CHARGE Indicator

Recharge the battery pack when Low Battery flashes on the display.

10

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

Notes:

When you first use the phone after charging or recharging the battery pack, the phone might not work and you might hear an error tone when you press TALK. If this happens, return the handset to the base for about 5 seconds. This resets the securityaccess-protectioncode.

If the base loses power for 30 minutes while the handset is away from it, the security access-protectioncode might be lost. To reset the code, return the handset to the base for about 5 seconds.

The handset does not lose its security access-protectioncode even if the battery pack is completely discharged.

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