ˆ Features

Your RadioShack Dual Keypad 900 MHz Digital Spread Spectrum Cordless Telephone uses the most advanced cordless telephone technology to give you superior audio quality and extended range.

The phone’s Caller ID records each caller’s telephone number (and name, if available in your area) and the date 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, the phone shows you the incoming caller information, even when you are already on the phone.

Your phone has these features:

900 MHz Operation — provides longer range and less interference than many other cordless phones.

Spread Spectrum Technology — spreads the signal across several frequencies, providing additional security for your phone conversations.

Caller ID Memory — stores up to 50 Caller ID records.

Dual Keypad — a full set of keys on both the handset and base let you use either keypad to operate the phone.

Speakerphone — lets you make or answer calls without using the handset.

3-LineLiquid Crystal Display— lets you view an entire Caller ID record on one screen.

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

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

Auto Talk — lets you set the handset so you can answer a call by simply lifting the handset from the base or by pressing any key when the handset is away from the base.

Headset Jack — lets you connect an optional headset (available from your local RadioShack store) forhands-freeconvenience.

Volume Control — lets you adjust the volume you hear through the handset.

Adjustable Ringers — you can set different volumes for the handset and base ringers.

Ample Talk and Standby Time — the supplied battery (when fully charged) provides about 6 hours of talk time or 7 days of standby time.

20 Channels — automatically selects a clear channel when you make or answer a call.

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

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

Tone/Pulse Dialing — lets you use either type of service.

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

This telephone is UL listed and has been tested and found to comply with all applicable FCC standards.

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

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. 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 phone loses the security access-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

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, your phones might not ring. In rural areas, a total REN of three might impair ringer operation. If ringer operation is impaired, remove a device from the line.

FCC STATEMENT

This 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 phone’s base.

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

coin-operatedsystems

party-linesystems

most electronic key phone systems

This telephone 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 Installation

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

Note: 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 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).

On a Desk Top, Shelf, or Table

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

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 DC IN 9V 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.

2.Plug the modular cord’s other end into a modular telephone line jack.

3.Insert the supplied AC adapter’s barrel plug into the DC IN 9V jack on the back of the base.

4.Route the adapter and modular cords through the grooves on the bracket.

5.Plug the modular cord’s other end into the wall plate jack, then align the bracket’s keyhole slots with the wall plate studs and slide the phone downward to secure it.

6.Plug the adapter into a standard AC outlet.

7.Press and lift out the handset holder. Rotate it 180°, then snap it back into place so it holds the handset.

8.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 about 3/16 inch (5 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.

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

CONNECTING AND CHARGING THE BATTERY PACK

The phone comes with a rechargeable nick- el-cadmiumbattery pack in the handset but not connected. Before using your phone, you must connect the battery pack and 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), then replace the battery pack.

4.Replace the cover.

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

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

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 60 minutes while the handset is away from it or the handset’s battery pack is completely discharged, 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 the base about once a month.
