FEATURES

Your RadioShack System 440 99-NumberMemory Call Waiting Caller ID module lets you decide whether or not to interrupt your current call when a new call comes in. If Call Waiting/Caller ID service is available in your area and you subscribe to it, you can see information about your incoming call and choose whether or not you want to answer it.

The telephone company sends the caller’s telephone number (and name, if available in your area) and the date and time of the call between the first and second rings. During an incoming call, a Call Waiting signal sounds if you are already on another call and the module displays the Caller ID information to help you identify the caller and avoid unwanted calls.

The module stores and displays up to 99 single (number only) or multiple (name and number) Caller ID records.

Your module includes these features:

Easy Installation — the module easily connects to your telephone line so you can quickly begin using it.

Call Summary — displays the number of new calls you received.

Large Display — makes it easy to see caller information and the current time and date.

43-974.fmPage 4 Monday, August 16, 1999 4:27 PM

Clock and Date Display — displays the current time and date as provided to Caller ID service subscribers by your local telephone company.

Message Received Indicator — flashes when you get an anonymous call, when you have at least one new call you have not reviewed, or when you have received a voice mail message (if you have message waiting service).

Bilingual Operation — lets you set the module to display messages in English or Spanish.

Contrast Control — lets you adjust the display contrast for the best readability.

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

You need one 9-voltbattery (not supplied) to protect the module’s memory if power fails.

We recommend you record the module’s serial number here. The number is on the module’s bottom panel.

FCC INFORMATION

We have designed your module to conform to federal regulations, and you can connect it to most telephone lines. However, each module (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 module’s ringer equivalence number or REN. The REN is shown on the bottom of the module.

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 module complies with Part 68 of FCC Rules. You must, upon request, provide the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) registration number and the REN to your telephone company. Both numbers are shown on the bottom of the module.

Note: You must not connect your module to:

Coin-operatedsystems

Party-linesystems

Most electronic key telephone systems

43-974.fmPage 7 Monday, August 16, 1999 4:27 PM

In the unlikely event that your module causes problems on the phone line, the phone company can temporarily disconnect 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 module. The phone company notifies you of these changes in advance, so you can take the necessary steps to prevent interruption of your telephone service.

This module complies with the limits for a Class B 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 module might cause TV or radio interference even when it is operating properly.

To eliminate interference, you can try one or more of the following:

Reorient or relocate the radio or TV receiving antenna

Increase the distance between the module and the radio or TV

Use outlets on different electrical circuits for the module and the radio or TV

Consult your local RadioShack store if the problem continues.
