FEATURES

Your RadioShack TAD-70416-MinuteDigital Telephone Answering System with68-MemoryCaller ID is a combinationhigh-qualityfully-digitalanswering system and Caller ID. TheTAD-704prevents you from missing incoming calls and messages. Fully digital means theTAD-704stores all messages on a computer chip — there are no tape mechanism to wear out and no tapes to bother with. This gives you capabilities thattape-basedanswering machine do not have. For example, you can listen quickly from message to message without listening to all of them.

The TAD-704also shows 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. It saves up to 68 Caller ID records that you can review and call back.

PREPARATION

Select a location for the TAD-704that is near a modular telephone line jack and an AC outlet, and is not in the way of normal activities.

CONNECTING THE TAD

Notes:

Your TAD-704connects 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.

Follow these steps to connect your TAD to the telephone line and phone.

1.Unplug the telephone's modular cord from the modular phone line jack and plug it into the PHONE jack on the back of the TAD.

2.Plug one end of the supplied modular cord into the LINE jack on the back of the TAD.

3.Plug the cord's other end into a modular phone line jack.

4.Insert the supplied AC adapter's barrel plug into the AC 9V 400 mA jack on the back of the TAD.

Cautions:

You must use a Class 2

!power source that supplies

9V AC and delivers at least

400 mA. Its plug must fit the TAD704's AC 9V 400 mA jack. The supplied adapter meets these specifications. Using an adapter that does not meet these specifications could damage theTAD-704or the adapter.

Always connect the AC adapter to the TAD-704before you connect it to AC power. When you finish, disconnect the adapter from AC power before you disconnect it from theTAD-704.

5.Plug the other end of the adapter into a standard AC outlet.

6

43-704.fmPage 7 Wednesday, November 17, 1999 4:47 PM

When you first connect power, the TAD beeps once, MEMORY TEST appears, and the message counter counts up from0 to22. Then the TAD beeps.0 CALL 0 MESSAGE appears.OGM1 and

OGM2 flash to indicate that no outgoing messages are recorded.

2.Snap the battery's contacts firmly to the battery connector and place the battery in the compartment.

INSTALLING A BACKUP BATTERY

Notes:

If the AC power fails or you unplug the TAD, a 9V backup battery (not supplied) saves the messages, time and day settings, and CBT and remote operation security codes. For the best performance and longest life, we recommend you use a RadioShack alkaline battery.

If the AC power fails or you unplug the TAD, the TAD can receive Caller ID records. However, the TAD cannot operate on backup battery power alone.

Caution: Always use a fresh battery of the required size and recommend type.

1.Use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the screw on the battery compartment cover, then remove the cover.

3.Replace the cover and secure it with the screw.

Replace the battery when appears.

Warning: Dispose of the old battery promptly and properly. Do not burn or bury it.

Cautions:

Before you replace the battery, be sure the TAD is properly connected to AC power. Otherwise, you might lose any stored information.

Disconnect the telephone line cord before replacing the battery to reduce the risk of fire or injury. Use only a 9 Volt alkaline or super heavy duty battery.

Always remove old an or weak battery. A battery can leak chemicals that can destroy electronic parts.

SETTING THE DISPLAY CONTRAST

1.Hold down STOP until the TAD beeps once.7 andLCD CONTRAST appear.7 flashes.

4.Repeat Step 3 to set the second and third digits of your area code.

5.Press CALLBACK then pressSTOP to return to the time display.

SETTING THE DAY, TIME AND DATE

To avoid losing the day and time settings if AC power fails, we recommend you install a backup battery before you set the day and time (see “Installing a Backup Battery” on Page 7).

Follow these steps so the TAD can record the correct day and time each message and memo is recorded.

Note: If you do not complete each step within 8 seconds, the TAD exits setup. Start again at Step 1.

1.Hold down STOP until the TAD beeps once.

TAD OPERATION

RECORDING THE OUTGOING MESSAGES

Before the TAD-704can answer calls and record messages, you must record an outgoing message (OGM). The TAD704 lets you record two separate messages, and it operates differently based on which message you select.

OGM 1 — After playing your outgoing message, the TAD records the caller's message.

OGM 2 (announce-only)— The TAD plays your outgoing message, but does not record a message.

Notes:

The maximum length for each outgoing message is 32 seconds. As you record, the message counter shows the recording time.

If you plan to use the TAD's announce-onlyfeature, OGM 2 should clearly state that the caller cannot leave a message.

Note: As soon as the TAD beeps, releaseOGM1 (orOGM2) quickly. Otherwise, the TAD records a “pop” sound at the beginning of the outgoing message.

2.Speak your message from about 8 inches in front of the TAD.

3.When you finish, press STOP. The TAD beeps and plays back the outgoing message.

CHECKING THE OUTGOING MESSAGES

To check an outgoing message, press its button (OGM1 or OGM2). OGM1 PLAYING (orOGM2 PLAYING) appears and the message plays.

If no outgoing message is recorded when you press OGM1 orOGM2, the TAD announces “You have no announcement one” (or “two”) and sounds four beeps.

OGM1 orOGM2 on the display stops flashing to indicate OGM1 or OGM2 is recorded.

Follow these steps to record an outgoing message.

1.To record the OGM 1 (or OGM 2) message, hold down OGM1 (orOGM2) until the TAD beeps and the timer starts counting.OGM1 RECORDING (orOGM2 RECORDING) appears.

SETTING THE TAD TO ANSWER CALLS

To turn on the TAD and set it to answer calls and record messages, press ANSWER once. The TAD says “Answer on”, and beeps once.ANS ON appears, then the TAD plays the outgoing message and showsOGM1 PLAYING briefly.

10

43-704.fmPage 11 Wednesday, November 17, 1999 4:47 PM

The ANSWER indicator lights to show that the TAD is ready to answer calls using the OGM 1 message and the record callers' message.

To Announce Only

When the announce-onlyfeature is on, theTAD-704plays OGM 2 but does not let callers leave a message. (You must have recorded an OGM 2 message before you can use this feature.)

To set the TAD to announce-only,be sure the TAD is set to answer calls, then pressOGM2. The TAD says “Announce only,” andANS ONLY appears. The TAD plays OGM 2, andOGM2 PLAYING briefly appears.

To turn off the announce-onlyfeature, pressOGM1. The TAD beeps, says “Answer on,” and plays OGM 1.

To turn off the TAD so it does not answer calls, press ANSWER again. The TAD announces “Answer off” and beeps. The ANSWER indicator turns off.

INCOMING MESSAGE RECORDING

Each incoming message can be up to 60 seconds long. While recording the in-

coming message, ICM RECORDING appears on the display. When a recording reaches 55 seconds, the TAD beeps to notify the caller that time will soon be up. At 60 seconds it sounds one long and four short beeps, says “Thank you for your call,” and hangs up.

Additionally, the TAD stops recording and resets to answer the next call when:

The caller hangs up.

There are more than 8 seconds of silence.

You pick up any phone on the same line as the TAD.

If the TAD's incoming messages are full but the Caller ID records are not full, the TAD announces “Message is full”, and xx CALLS xx MSG FULL appears. It answers calls after 3 rings and plays the second outgoing message (OGM 2). If no OGM 2 is recorded, the TAD says “Message is full. Thank you for your call.”

If only Caller ID records (or both the incoming messages and Caller ID records) are full, the TAD-704announces “Memory is full,” andxx CALLS xx MSG FULL appears. TheTAD-704answers calls after 3 rings and plays the second outgoing message (OGM 2). If no OGM 2 is recorded, the TAD says “Memory is full. Thank you for your call.”

Notes:

The maximum recording capacity is 16 minutes (or 68 recorded messages), or 68 Caller ID records.

11

43-704.fmPage 12 Wednesday, November 17, 1999 4:47 PM

Many local phone companies use Calling Party Control (CPC) to signal that the caller has hung up. Your TAD recognizes a CPC signal and releases the line. If the TAD records phone company messages or dial tones, your local phone company probably does not use CPC.

PLAYING MESSAGES

The TAD's message window shows the total number of messages, both old and new. If there are new messages, the ANSWER indicator flashes.

To play all messages, press PLAY.flashes during playback to indicate the TAD is playing new messages.lights during playback to indicate the TAD is playing messages which have already been played. The TAD announces the number of messages recorded, the message number and the day and time the message was recorded, and then plays the message.

To adjust the TAD's volume, slide VOLUME on the right side of the TAD.

To play only new messages, hold down PLAY for 2 seconds.flashes. If there are no new messages stored, the

12

TAD says, “You have no new messages.”

After all messages play, the TAD says, “End of messages.”

To replay a message while you are listening to it, press REPEAT. The current message replays from the beginning.

To return to a previous message, hold down REPEAT until the desired message number appears in the display. ReleaseREPEAT to play the selected message.

To skip to the next message, press SKIP. The next message plays.

To pause while listening to messages, press PLAY.PAUSE appears on the display. To resume playback, pressPLAY again within 60 seconds. Otherwise the TAD beeps, says “End of messages,” and resets to answer calls.

To play the message at a faster speed, hold down SKIP. The playback speed increases, allowing you to quickly scan a message or move to any place within a message. To resume normal playback, releaseSKIP.

To stop playback, press STOP. The TAD beeps, says “End of messages,” and resets to answer calls.

RECORDING A MEMO

A memo is a message you can record by speaking directly into the TAD, without having to call in on the phone.

43-704.fmPage 13 Wednesday, November 17, 1999 4:47 PM

Follow these steps to record a memo up to 60 seconds long.

1.Press MEMO (and quickly release it). The TAD sounds a long beep,

2.Press STOP when you finish the memo (or let the TAD automatically stop recording after 60 seconds). The TAD beeps and resets to answer calls.

The memo is stored with the incoming messages. To hear the memo, simply play back your messages.

RECORDING A

CONVERSATION

You can record both sides of a conversation on any phone connected to the same phone line as the TAD.

Note: It is illegal in some areas to record a conversation without the consent of all parties to the conversation, including the phone company. Check the laws in your area before you use thetwo-wayrecording feature.

To start recording a phone conversation, hold down MEMO until2 WAY RECORDING appears. The TAD records until:

you press STOP

the TAD hears 8 seconds of a busy signal or 25 seconds of silence

the TAD's memory is full

The recorded conversation is stored as a message (see “Playing Messages” on Page 12).

DELETING MESSAGES

To delete all messages, stop playback and hold down DELETE untildEL ALL appears, then pressSKIP.

The TAD-704does not delete new messages. If you hold downDELETE then pressSKIP to delete only new messages, the TAD sounds four beeps.

SCREENING CALLS

To screen calls, let the TAD answer them. TAD IN USE appears.

13

43-704.fmPage 14 Wednesday, November 17, 1999 4:47 PM

Listen to the caller's message through the TAD's speaker. To adjust the volume, slide VOLUME on the right side of the TAD.

If you decide to answer the call, pick up any phone on the same phone line as the TAD. The TAD stops recording and resets to answer the next call.

If you do not want to take the call, simply let the TAD finish recording the caller's message.

Note: If you answer the phone just as the TAD answers, the TAD might not stop playing the outgoing message. If this happens, pressSTOP on the TAD.

USING CALL

BREAKTHROUGH

If you screen your calls but want to know when calls come in from certain people, give them your Call Breakthrough (CBT) Code.

When a caller enters the CBT code during the outgoing message, the TAD alerts you with a series of loud beeps for 35 seconds. To answer the call, pick up the handset. If you do not answer, the caller can leave a message after the outgoing message plays.

14

Changing the CBT Code

The CBT code is preset to 168, but you can change it by following these steps.

Note: If you do not complete each step within 8 seconds, the TAD exits setup. Start again from Step 1.

1.Hold down STOP until the TAD beeps once.

REMOTE OPERATION

You can operate the TAD from almost any touch-tonephone, or from a rotary phone using a pockettone-dialer(available at your local RadioShack store).

If the TAD is not set to answer calls, it answers after about 9 rings.

3.Enter a remote command.

4.When you finish, simply hang up.

USING THE TOLL-SAVER

If the ring select switch is set to TS (tollsaver), the TAD-704answers after two rings if you have new messages. If there are no new messages, the TAD answers after four rings. This gives you time to hang up before the TAD answers so you can avoid unnecessarylong-distancecharges. See “Setting the Number of Rings” on Page 9.

USING REMOTE

COMMANDS

Follow these steps to operate the TAD remotely.

1.Dial your phone number.

2.When the TAD answers, enter your remote operation security code. The TAD beeps once to confirm that you entered the correct code.

Notes:

If you do not enter each digit within 8 seconds, the TAD hangs up.

CALLER ID OPERATION

If you subscribe to Caller ID service from your phone company, the TAD-704automatically displays the information the phone company sends between the first and second rings of every call you receive. It stores up to 68 numbers only or name and number call records in its Caller ID memory.

It also shows the date and time the call was received. The display also shows if caller information is not available or if the sender chose not to send the information (see “Caller ID Messages” on Page 19.)

The NEW CALL indicator flashes during an incoming call, and RING and the Caller ID record appear on the display. Then the complete Caller ID record appears after the last ring ends for about 8 seconds.

If you subscribe to your phone company's message waiting service, your TAD-704informs you when you have a message waiting. IfMESSAGE WAITING andappear, you have a voice message in your mailbox.MESSAGE WAITING disappears from the display after 8 seconds, butflashes until you retrieve the message.

Note: The message waiting feature does not work with stutter dial tone service.

If your phone company sends information indicating that the incoming call is long distance, LDC appears.

If you receive more than one call (without an accompanying message) from the same phone number, RPT (repeat) appears, and theTAD-704stores a single Caller ID record for that number with the date and time of the last call. If the later repeat call has a message but the previous call does not, theTAD-704stores the later call as a repeat call record, andRPT appears.

If the previous call has a message but the later repeat call does not, RPT appears, and theTAD-704stores both Caller ID records. If both of the later and previous calls have messages,RPT appears, and theTAD-704stores both calls information.

If only Caller ID records (or both of the incoming messages and Caller ID records) are full, Memory is full andxx CALLS xx MSG FULL appear. TheTAD-704answers calls after 3 rings and plays the second outgoing message (OGM 2). If no OGM 2 is recorded, the TAD says “Memory is full.” Thank you for your call.”

Reviewing the Call Forwarding

Information

If you subscribe to your phone company's call forwarding service, the phone company will forward the phone call from the main telephone to the assigned telephone so you will not miss the phone call. To see the call forwarding information, be sure to connect the TAD-704to the assigned telephone. The phone company offers three call forwarding services — Call Forward Universal, Call Forward Busy, and Call Forward Unanswer.

If you subscribe to Call Forward Universal Service, the phone company directly forwards any phone call from the main telephone to the assigned telephone and CALL FORWARD appears.

If you subscribe to the Call Forward Busy Service, the phone company will forward the phone call to the assigned telephone when the main telephone is busy and CALL FWD BUSY appears.

If you apply the Call Forward Unanswer Service, the phone company will forward the phone call to the assigned telephone when the main telephone does not answer the call, and CALL FWD UNANS appears.
