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.

This symbol is intended to alert you to the presence of uninsulated dangerous voltage within the product’s enclosure that might be of sufficient magnitude to constitute a risk of electric shock. Do not open the product’s case.

Important Caller ID Information

To use the phone's Caller ID and Caller ID with Call Waiting 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:

caller's number only

caller's name only

caller's name and number

READ THIS BEFORE INSTALLATION

We have designed your phone to conform 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 draw as the device's ringer equivalence number, or REN. The REN is on the bottom of the base. 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 (three in rural areas), your phones might not ring. If ringer operation is impaired, remove a device from the line.

FCC STATEMENT

Your phone 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

Note: Your telephone operates on standard radio frequencies, as allocated by the FCC. Even though the security ac-cess-protectioncode prevents unauthorized use of your phone line, it is possible for radios operating on similar frequencies within a certain area to unintentionally intercept your conversations and/or cause interference. This lack of privacy can occur with any cordless phone.

store. Or, you can let the phone company update the wiring for you.

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

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.

Caution: The supplied RadioShack adapter was designed specifically for your phone. Use only the supplied adapter.

Notes:

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

On a Wall

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” on Page 7, then apply these additional instructions for placement on a wall.

1. Drill two holes 315/16 inches (100 mm) apart. Then thread a screw into each hole, letting the heads extend about5/16 inch (8 mm) from the wall.

2.Plug one end of the supplied long modular cord into the TEL LINE jack at the back of the base.

3.Align the bracket's keyhole slots with the mounting screws and slide the base downward to secure it.

CONNECTING AND CHARGING THE BATTERY PACK

The phone comes with a rechargeable nickel-cadmiumbattery pack installed in the handset, but not connected. 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. Plug the battery pack's connector into the socket in the compartment. The connector fits only one way.

3.Put the battery pack in the compartment.

4.Replace the cover.

To charge the battery pack, simply place the handset on the base, facing either up or down. The CHARGE/IN USE indicator on the base lights.

Recharge the battery pack when Low Battery flashes on the handset's display.

43-1123.fmPage 9 Tuesday, September 5, 2000 11:13 AM

Important: Be sure the battery pack is properly connected before you try to charge it.

Notes:

When you first use the phone after charging or recharging the battery pack, the phone might not work and you might hear a five-beeperror signal. If this happens, return the handset to the base for about 5 seconds. This resets the securityaccess-pro-tection code.

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

battery pack loses its ability to fully recharge.

If the battery pack is completely discharged or the base loses power while the handset is away from it, place the handset on the base to reset the security access-protectioncode. If it was the handset that lost power, recharge the battery pack.

The supplied battery pack should last about a year. When it loses its ability to fully recharge, order a replacement battery pack through your local RadioShack store (see “Replacing the Battery Pack” on Page 26).

If the handset's 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 the battery pack becomes weak during a call, the handset beeps every 3 seconds and Low Battery flashes. When this happens, you cannot make another call on the phone until you recharge the battery pack.

About once a month, fully discharge the battery pack by keeping the handset off the base until Low Battery flashes. Otherwise, the
