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).

3

43-982.fmPage 4 Monday, August 16, 1999 5:01 PM

Trilingual Messages — lets you set the system to display messages in English, French, or Spanish.

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.

We recommend you record your System 2100’s serial number here. The number is on the system’s bottom panel.

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.

CONNECTING THE SYSTEM

Connecting to the Phone Line

The System 2100 connects to your phone and phone line using four modular telephone line connectors. If your phone line does not have a modular jacks, you can update the wiring yourself using adapters available at your local RadioShack store. Or, you can have the telephone company update your telephone wiring for you.

Notes:

If you connect the system to only one phone line, the system displays Caller ID information for only that line.

The USOC number of the jack to be installed is RJ11C (for a single-linephone jack) or RJ14C (for atwo-linephone jack).

The following illustrations show the possible connections, depending on your telephone and phone line setup:

OPERATION

RECEIVING CALLS

Caller ID is a service provided by your telephone company. When you subscribe to this service, the telephone company sends the caller’s telephone number (and name, if available) and the call’s date and time between the first and second rings. The system receives and displays this information for each call and updates the display with the current date and time. The display also shows if caller information is not available or if the number is blocked by the sender (see “Displayed Call Information” on Page 21).

CALL flashes during a new incoming call, the LINE indicator flashes, and the call record shows for 20 seconds, then the number of new calls andNEW CALL appear. The LINE indicator shows which line the call came in on and flashes until you review a call (see “Reviewing Call Records” on Page 19).

Note: If you have a phone that has a hold feature, we do not recommend using hold for very long. The Caller ID information sent by the phone company might disconnect a caller on hold if a new call comes in.

If you have voice-mailmessage waiting (if you subscribe to the telephone company’s message waiting service),NEW CALL andMESSAGE WAITING appear on the display.MESSAGE WAITING remains on the display until you retrieve the message.

18

43-982.fmPage 19 Monday, August 16, 1999 5:01 PM

In some areas, callers have the option of blocking the sending of their Caller ID information. When a caller has blocked Caller ID, the system displays PRIVATE CALL instead of the call information.

REVIEWING CALL RECORDS

Each time you receive a call, your system saves a call record in memory that you can review later, even while you are on the phone. Your system saves up to 64 call records for each connected phone line, then (for subsequent calls) it replaces the oldest call record with each new one.

A stored call record includes:

Call number (order the call is received)

Time and date of the call

Caller’s telephone number (if available)

Caller’s name (if available)

Note: The display shows up to 10 digits of the phone number. If the incoming phone number is longer than 10 digits, the display shows only the last 10 digits.

19

43-982.fmPage 20 Monday, August 16, 1999 5:01 PM

To review the call information, set L1/L2 to the line you want to review. Repeatedly pressREVIEW to see the most recent call records or REVIEW to see older call records.

Notes:

-- END -- appears after the last call record.

When reviewing call records or using any other function, the system returns to the current date and time about 20 seconds after you last press a key.
