FEATURES

Your RadioShack System 2100 2-LineCaller ID with64-CallMemory is the latest in telephone technology, providing Caller ID information for two phone lines. When you subscribe to Caller ID service, the telephone company sends the caller’s name and telephone number (if available), the date, and the time of the call between the first and second rings. The System 2100 stores and displays up to 64 Caller ID records per phone line, which have either a number or a name, or both.

The system’s callback feature lets you dial a caller’s number with the press of a single button. Its other features include:

Easy Installation — so you can quickly begin to see Caller ID information.

New Call Counter — displays the number of new calls you have received.

READ/DELETE Button — lets you delete Caller ID records one at a time or all at once.

Large Display — makes it easy to see the Caller ID information for up to two phone lines and the current time and date as provided to Caller ID service subscribers by your local telephone company.

Message Waiting Display — appears when you have received a voice mail message (if you subscribe to a message waiting service from your local phone company).

REVIEW Buttons — let you easily scroll through all records in Caller ID memory.

Mounting Options — you can place the system on a desk, shelf, or table, or mount it on a wall.

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

Notes:

To use this system, you must be in an area where Caller ID service is available, and you must subscribe to the service.

Your System 2100 displays name only, number only, or both name and number, depending upon the information provided by the phone company.

FCC INFORMATION

We have designed your System 2100 to conform to federal regulations, and you can connect it to most telephone lines. However, each system (and each device, such as a telephone or answering machine) that you connect to the telephone line draws power from the line. We refer to this power draw as the device’s ringer equivalence number or REN. The REN is shown on a label on the bottom of the system.

If you use more than one telephone or other device on the line, add up all of the RENs. If the total is more than five, your telephone 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.

Your system complies with Part 68 of FCC Rules. You must, upon request, provide the FCC registration number and the REN to your telephone company. Both numbers are shown on the bottom of the system.

Note: You must not connect the system to:

Coin-operatedsystems

Party-linesystems

Most electronic key telephone systems

In the unlikely event that your system 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 system. The telephone company notifies you of these changes in advance, so you can take the necessary steps to prevent interruption of your telephone service.

This system 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 system 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 System 2100 and the radio or TV

Consult your local RadioShack store if the problem continues.
