CAUTION: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK, DO NOT REMOVE COVER OR BACK. NOUSER-SERVICE-ABLE PARTS INSIDE. REFER SERVICING TO QUALIFIED PERSONNEL.

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.

This symbol is intended to inform you that important operating and ! maintenance instructions are included in the literature accompa-

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 phone might not ring. 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 base.

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

coin-operatedsystems

party-linesystems

most electronic key phone systems

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

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 RadioShack store if the problem still exists.

LIGHTNING

You telephone has built-inlightning protection to reduce the risk of damage from surges in telephone line and power line current. This lightning protection meets or exceeds 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.

IMPORTANT CALLER ID INFORMATION

To use the phone’s Caller ID and Call Waiting features, you must be in an area where Caller ID and Call Waiting services are available and you must subscribe to the services.

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

For the phone’s Caller ID memory dial feature to operate, you must receive the caller’s number.

Important: Cordless phones generally require AC power to operate. You should also have a corded phone that does not require AC power to operate so you can still make and receive calls if there is an AC power failure.

Your telephone operates on standard radio frequencies as allocated by the FCC. Even though the 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 or cause interference. This lack of privacy can occur with any cordless phone.

CARE

Keep the phone dry; if it gets wet, wipe it dry immediately. Use and store the phone only in normal temperature environments. Handle the phone carefully; do not drop it. Keep the phone away from dust and dirt, and wipe it with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it looking new.

Modifying or tampering with the phone’s internal components can cause a malfunction and might invalidate its warranty and void your FCC authorization to operate it. If your phone 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 phone until you have resolved the problem.

MOUNTING THE PHONE

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

Select a location that is:

near an easily accessible AC outlet

near a telephone line jack

out of the way of normal activities

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

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.

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).

On a Desk

Follow these steps to use the supplied bracket (pre-installedinto the lower tab slots) as a stand when mounting the base on a desk or table.

1.Press down on the tabs on the top of the bracket and lift the bracket from the clip slots. Remove the bracket completely from the lower tab slots.

2.Rotate the bracket 180°, then insert the bracket’s tabs into the upper tab slots and snap into place.

3.Plug the modular cord’s other end into a modular phone line jack.

4.Route the adapter and phone cords through the strain relief slot on the bracket if necessary.

5.Plug the adapter into a standard AC outlet.

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

On a Wall Plate

1.Route the adapter and phone cords through the strain relief grooves on the bottom of the bracket if necessary.

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

3.Plug the adapter into a standard AC outlet.

4.Press up on the handset holder and slide it out of place. Turn it upside down so its tabbed edge faces up, then slide it back down into its slot.

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

Installation

Directly On a Wall

For this mounting method, you need two screws (not supplied) with heads that fit into the keyhole slots on the bottom of the base.

1.Drill two holes 315/16 inches (100 mm) apart. Then thread a screw into each hole, letting the heads extend about3/16 inch (4 mm) from the wall.

2.Route the modular and adapter cords through the grooves on the bottom of the bracket if necessary.

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

4.Plug the modular cord into a modular phone line jack.

5.Plug the adapter into a standard AC outlet.

6.Press up on the handset holder and slide it out of place. Turn it upside down so its tabbed edge faces up, then slide it back down into its slot.

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

CONNECTING, CHARGING, AND REPLACING THE BATTERY PACK

The phone comes with a rechargeable nickel-cadmiumbattery pack. You must connect the battery pack and charge it for at least 12 hours before you use the phone for the first time.

1.Slide off the battery compartment cover.

2.Unfasten the retainer strap and 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 and fasten the retainer strap.

4.Replace the cover.

To charge the battery pack, place the handset either faceup or facedown on the base. The CHARGE/IN USE/MESSAGE indicator lights.

Notes:

Recharge the battery pack if the handset beeps and LOW BATTERY appears, or if LOW BATTERY appears when the phone is not in use.

If the phone does not work immediately after charging or recharging the battery pack, return the keypad to the base for about 5 seconds to reset the security access-protectioncode.

About once a month, fully discharge the battery pack by keeping the phone off the base until the low battery warning tone sounds. Otherwise, the battery pack loses its ability to fully recharge.

When the handset is on the base, the CHARGE/IN USE/MESSAGE indicator lights even when the battery pack is not connected. If your phone does not work, be sure the battery pack is properly connected.

If the CHARGE/IN USE/MESSAGE indicator does not light when you place the handset on the base, be sure the battery pack and AC adapter are correctly and securely connected.

Check the charging contacts on the handset and base. If the contacts are dirty or tarnished, clean them with a pencil eraser.

Installation

7

If the battery pack becomes completely discharged or the base loses power while the handset is away from it, place the handset on the base for about 5 seconds to reset the security access protection code. If the handset loses power, leave it on the base to charge the battery pack.

If you are not going to use your phone for an extended period, disconnect its battery pack. This helps increase the battery pack’s 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 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, place the handset on the base, and charge the battery for 12 hours before using it.

Note: To avoid losing numbers stored in memory, you must install and begin charging the new battery pack within 2 minutes of removing the old one.

Warning: Dispose of the old battery pack promptly and properly. Do not burn or bury it.

Cautions:

You must use a replacement battery pack of the same size and type.

Do not dispose of the battery pack in a fire because it might explode.

Do not open or mutilate the battery pack.

Be careful not to short the battery pack by touching the connector’s pins with conducting materials, such as rings, bracelets, and keys. The battery pack or conductor might overheat and burn.

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