FEATURES

Your RadioShack System 933 79-MemoryCaller ID with Call Waiting, Illuminator Backlight and Dial Back is the latest in telephone technology. The system displays the caller’s telephone number (and name, if available in your area) and the current date and time, as provided by your local phone company to Caller ID service subscribers. (The date and time are set with your first incoming Caller ID call.)

The System 933 stores and displays up to 79 multiple (name and number) Caller ID records, and includes these features:

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

Bright Illuminator Backlight — the display lights when you press any key, making it easy to view and change information even in a dimly lit area.

Call Summary — displays the number of new calls, total number of calls you received, the phone number, date and time you received the calls and the caller’s name.

Note: Check with your local phone company regarding name service availability.

New Call Indicator — flashes when you have at least one new call you have not reviewed.

VIP Call List — lets you save up to 20 important call records so they will not be deleted when you delete other calls from the system’s memory.

Note: Your system requires four AAA batteries (not supplied) to protect its memory during a power outage.

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

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

Serial Number: _________________________

43-933.fmPage 6 Monday, August 16, 1999 2:59 PM

Important Information:

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

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

Your system displays the caller’s name only if that option is available in your area.

The actual number of Caller ID records your system will store depends on the amount of Caller ID information sent by the phone company.

FCC INFORMATION

We have designed your system 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 telephone line. We refer to this power draw as the device’s ringer equivalence number, or REN. The REN is 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 on the bottom of the system.

Note: You must not connect your 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 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.

7

43-933.fmPage 8 Monday, August 16, 1999 2:59 PM

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 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 TV or radio’s 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 continues.

PREPARATION

INSTALLING BATTERIES

You need four AAA batteries (not supplied) to protect the system’s memory during a power failure. For the longest operation and best performance, we recommend alkaline batteries, such as RadioShack Cat. No. 23-558.

Cautions:

Always use fresh batteries of the required size and recommended type.

Do not mix old and new batteries, different types of batteries (standard, alkaline, or rechargeable), or rechargeable batteries of different capacities.

Follow these steps to install batteries.

Notes:

When you replace the batteries, do not press any buttons on the system after you remove the old batteries. Doing so could erase all stored information.

10

43-933.fmPage 11 Monday, August 16, 1999 2:59 PM

When replacing the batteries, have fresh ones on hand before you begin. If you do not install the new batteries within about 2 minutes after removing the old ones, you will lose all the information stored in the system.

1.Make sure the system is unplugged from the telephone line and AC power.

2.If you are replacing the batteries, unplug both modular line cords from the back of the system.

3.Use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the screw in the battery compartment cover.

4.Slide the battery compartment

 

cover in the direction of the

(illus)

 

arrow, then lift open the cover.

 

 

Caution: The battery compart-

 

 

ment cover is attached to the

 

 

system. Do not try to remove it

 

 

completely.

 

5.

Put four fresh AAA batteries

 

 

into the compartment as indi-

(illus)

 

cated by the polarity symbols

 

(+ and –)marked inside.

 

6.

Close the cover and secure it

 

 

with the screw. If you are

 

 

replacing the batteries, recon-

 

nect the phone line, AC adapter, and the phone.

11

43-933.fmPage 12 Monday, August 16, 1999 2:59 PM

OPERATION

RECEIVING AND STORING 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 ring. The system receives and displays this information for each call and updates the display with the current date and time. Your system saves up to 79 call records, then replaces the oldest call record with each new one.

During an incoming call, the red new call indicator flashes, the display lights, and NEW and theTOTAL number of calls appear.

RECEIVING CALL WAITING CALLS

When you are talking on the phone and you hear the Call Waiting beeps, you can look at the display to see who is calling. To talk with that person, press the FLASH button on your telephone set. When you want to return to your original caller, press theFLASH button again.

Note: You must call your local phone company to subscribe to Caller ID with Call Waiting services.
