FEATURES

Your RadioShack ET-925900 MHz Dual Keypad Cordless Speakerphone uses the 900 MHz band which means less interference, clearer sound, and greater range than 46/49 MHz cordless telephones.

And, its headset jack means you can connect an optional headset for handsfree convenience while you use the ET-925.

Its features include:

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

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

Dual Keypads — a full set of keys on both theET-925’shandset and base let you use either keypad to make and answer calls or program the phone’s features.

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

Super CCT Noise-ReductionCircuitry— provides clear telephone conversations, giving you sound clarity comparable to that of a corded phone.

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

COM-LOK® — ensures that other cordless phone users cannot use your phone line when the handset is on the base.

Redial — lets you quickly redial the last number dialed.

20-NumberMemory Dialing— lets you store up to 20 numbers in memory

— 10 on the handset and 10 on the base — for easy dialing.

Paging — lets you send a paging signal from the base to the handset to page someone or locate the handset if you misplace it.

Flash — sends an electronic switchhook signal for use with special phone services, such as Call Waiting.

Auto Talk — you can answer a call by just lifting the handset from the base.

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

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

Important Note: 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-925. 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.

We recommend you record your phone’s serial number here. The number is on the bottom of the base.

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 base.

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

You can place the ET-925’sbase on a desk top or table, or mount it on a wall. Select 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

Placing the Base on a

Desk Top

Follow these steps when you place the base on a desk, 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 handset’s range. If you have a choice of several locations, try each to see which provides the best performance.

Caution: The supplied RadioShack AC adapter was designed specifically for yourET-925.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 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 if you want to mount it on a wall plate).

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

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

CHARGE Indicator

Recharge the battery pack when the handset beeps and the TALK/BATT LOW indicator flashes during a call.

Notes:

If the CHARGE 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. Be sure the charging contacts on the handset and the base are making contact.

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