43-705.fmPage 4 Tuesday, May 23, 2000 8:54 AM

Your TAD (Telephone Answering Device) is ETL listed to UL standards and meets all applicable FCC standards.

IMPORTANT CALLER ID INFORMATION

To use the TAD’s Caller ID, 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

Note: For the TAD’s Caller ID memory dial feature to operate, you must receive the caller's number.

READ THIS BEFORE

INSTALLATION

We have designed your TAD to conform to federal regulations and you can connect it to most phone lines. However, each device that you connect to the TAD line draws power from the line. We refer to this power draw as the TAD's ringer equivalence number, or REN. The REN is shown on the bottom of your TAD.

If you use more than one telephone or other device on the line, add up all the RENs. If the total is more than five (three in rural areas), your TAD might not ring. If ringer operation is impaired, remove one of the devices from the line.

FCC STATEMENT

Your TAD complies with Part 68 of FCC Rules. Upon request, you must provide the phone's FCC registration number and REN

to your telephone company. These numbers are on the bottom of the base.

Note: You must not connect your TAD to:

coin-operatedsystems

party-linesystems

most electronic key phone systems

THE FCC WANTS YOU TO KNOW

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

LIGHTNING

Your TAD has built-inprotection circuits to reduce the risk of damage from surges in telephone line and power line current. These protection circuits meet or exceed the FCC requirements. However, lightning striking the telephone or power lines can damage your TAD.

Lightning damage is not common. Nevertheless, if you live in an area that has severe electrical storms, we suggest that you unplug your TAD when storms approach to reduce the possibility of damage.

AC 9V 400mA

43-705.fmPage 7 Tuesday, May 23, 2000 8:54 AM

ˆ Preparation

INSTALLING A BACKUP BATTERY

You can install an optional 9V backup battery so if the AC power fails or you unplug the TAD, the TAD will save the messages, time and day settings, CBT and remote operation security codes, and Caller ID records. For the best performance and longest life, we recommend you use a RadioShack alkaline battery.

Cautions: Use only a fresh battery of the required size and recommended type.

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

LIFT

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

3.Replace the cover and secure it with the two screws.

Replace the battery when appears.

Warning: Dispose of old batteries promptly and properly. Do not burn or bury them.

Caution: If you do not plan to use the TAD for a month or longer, remove the battery. A battery can leak chemicals that can destroy electronic parts.

MOUNTING THE TAD

You can place the TAD on a desk or table, mount it on a standard wall plate, or mount it directly on a wall. Select a location that is near both an AC outlet and a modular phone line jack.

Notes:

Your TAD connects 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.

Cautions:

You must use a Class 2 power

!source that supplies 9V AC and delivers at least 400 mA.

Its plug must fit the TAD's

jack. The supplied adapter meets these specifications. Using an adapter that does not meet these specifications could damage the TAD or the adapter.

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.

On a Wall or Wall Plate

Note: To mount the TAD directly on a wall, you need two screws (not supplied) with heads that fit the keyhole slots on the mounting bracket. Drill two holes 315/16 inches (100 mm) apart. Then thread a screw into each hole, letting the heads extend about3/16 inch (5 mm) from the wall.

1.Plug the supplied short modular line cord into the TEL.LINE jack on the back of the TAD.

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

3.To mount the TAD on a wall plate, route the adapter cord hanging down and the other end of the short modular cord through the center of the bracket. Insert the tabs on the narrow end of the bracket into the slots on the bottom of the base, then push the tab on the wide end of the bracket into the lower slots on the bottom of the base.

Plug the short modular cord's other end into the wall plate jack, align the base's keyhole slots with the wall plate studs, and slide the base downward to secure it.

To mount the TAD directly on a wall, with the power cord and the long modular cords hanging down, insert the tabs on the narrow end of the bracket into the slots on the bottom of the base then push the tab on the wide end of the bracket into the lower slot on the bottom of the base.

Align the TAD's keyhole slots with screws and slide the TAD down to secure it, then plug the modular cord into a modular phone line jack.

4.Slide the handset clip out of its retaining slot, rotate it 180° then slide it back into its slot.

ˆ TAD Operation

RECORDING THE OUTGOING MESSAGES

Before the TAD (Telephone Answering Device) can answer calls and record messages, you must record an outgoing message (OGM). The TAD 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 announceonly feature, OGM 2 should clearly state that the caller cannot leave a message.

OGM1 orOGM2 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.

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 from the 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 OGM1 orOGM2.OGM1 PLAYING orOGM2 PLAYING appears and the message plays.

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, the TAD plays the outgoing message and showsOGM1 PLAYING briefly. The HOLD/ANSWER indicator lights to show that the TAD is ready to answer calls using the OGM 1 message and the record caller’s message.

Announce Only

When the announce-onlyfeature is on, the TAD plays 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 HOLD/ ANSWER indicator turns off.

INCOMING MESSAGE RECORDING

Each incoming message can be up to 60 seconds long. While recording the incoming 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 Caller ID records or both the incoming messages and Caller ID records are full, the TAD announces “Memory is full,” and xx CALLS xx MSG FULL appears. The TAD answers 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 62 Caller ID records.

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 NEW MESSAGE indicator flashes.

To play all messages, press PLAY. 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.

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

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.

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).

USING THE TOLL-SAVER

If the ring select switch is set to TS (toll-sav-er), the TAD answers 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 10.

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.

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

3.Enter a remote command (see “Remote Command List”).

4.When you finish, hang up.
