900 MHz Headset Phone
43-3522/3523
OWNER’S MANUAL — Please read before using this equipment.
Thank you for shopping at
RadioShack. Your 900MHz Headset
Phone gives you communication with
both portability and convenience. It
comes in two parts, a headset and a
base.
The phone’s headset connects to a
cordless remote keypad, so you can
make calls away from its base. The
headset lets you keep your hands free
to do other things. The base’s space
saving, upright design makes it perfect
for areas where space is limited.
Your phone includes:
Advanced Super CCT Circuitry —
provides sound clarity comparable to
that of a corded phone.
Security Access-Protection Code —
prevents other cordless phone users
from using your phone line.
10-Number Memory Dialing — lets
you store ten numbers in memory for
easy dialing.
10-Channel Auto Scan —
automatically selects a clear channel
when you pick up the phone. You can
also manually switch to another
channel.
Redial — lets you easily redial the last
number dialed.
Mute — prevents the person on the
other end of the phone line from
hearing you as you talk to someone
else in the room.
Flash — sends an electronic
switchhook signal for use with special
phone services such as Call Waiting.
Touch-Tone or Pulse Dialing — lets
you use your phone with either type of
service.
Belt Clip — lets you carry the phone’s
remote keypad on your belt for easy
portability.
Hearing-Aid Compatibility — lets you
use your phone with hearing aids that
have a T (telephone) switch.
Cord Clip — lets you position the
headset cord.
Important: Cordless phones such as
this one require AC power to operate.
When the AC power is off, you cannot
dial out or receive incoming calls using
your telephone. To be safe, you should
also have a phone that does not need
AC power to operate (not a cordless
phone) so you can still make and

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 on the
bottom of your phone’s base.
Note: Your phone operates on
standard radio frequencies as
allocated by the FCC. It is possible for
other radio units operating nearby on
similar frequencies to unintentionally
intercept your conversation or cause
interference. This possible lack of
privacy can occur with any cordless
phone.
If you use more than one phone or
other device on the line, add up all of
the RENs. If the total is more than five
(three in rural areas), your telephones
might not ring. If ringer operation is
impaired, remove a device from the
line.
FCC STATEMENT
Your headset phone 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 phone’s base.
In the unlikely event that your phone
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.
Note: You must not connect your
telephone to:
• coin-operated systems
• party-line systems
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.

• away from electrical machinery,
electrical appliances, metal walls,
filing cabinets, wireless intercoms,
security alarms, and room
monitors
• Always connect the AC adapter to
the telephone before you connect
it to AC power. When you finish,
disconnect the adapter from AC
power before you disconnect it
from the telephone.
The base’s location affects the phone’s
range. If you have a choice of several
locations, try each to see which
provides the best performance.
Your telephone connects directly to a
modular telephone line jack. If your
telephone wiring does not have a
modular jack, you can update the
wiring yourself using jacks and
adapters (available at your local
RadioShack store), or have the
telephone company update the wiring
for you. You must use compatible
modular jacks that are compliant with
Part 68 of FCC Rules.
Follow these steps to connect the
adapter to the telephone.
1. Plug the supplied AC adapter’s
barrel plug into the DC 12V 200mA
jack on the back of the base.
2. Plug the adapter into a standard
AC outlet.

you use the phone for the first time.
• If the IN USE/CHARGE indicator
does not light when you place the
remote keypad on the base, be
sure the AC adapter is correctly
and securely connected. Also,
check the charging contacts on
the remote keypad and the base.
If the contacts are dirty or
tarnished, clean them with a
pencil eraser.
1. Use a Phillips screwdriver to
remove the screw on the battery
compartment cover, then remove
the cover.
2. Plug the battery pack’s connector
into the socket in the compartment
(the connector fits only one way).
• When the remote keypad is on the
base, the IN USE/CHARGE
indicator lights even when the

battery pack’s life.
Important: The EPA
certified RBRC® Battery
Recycling Seal on the
nickel-cadmium (Ni-Cd)
battery indicates
RadioShack is voluntarily participating
in an industry program to collect and
recycle these batteries at the end of
their useful life, when taken out of
service in the United States or
Canada. The RBRC program provides
a convenient alternative to placing
used Ni-Cd batteries into the trash or
the municipal waste stream, which
may be illegal in your area. Please call
1-800-THE-SHACK (1-800-843-7422)
for information on Ni-Cd battery
recycling and disposal bans/
restrictions in your area. RadioShack’s
involvement in this program is part of
the company’s commitment to
preserving our environment and
conserving our natural resources.
The supplied battery pack should last
about a year. If the battery pack does
not hold a charge for more than 2
hours after an overnight charge,
replace it with a new 3.6V, 600mAh NiCd rechargeable battery pack with a
connector that fits the socket in the
battery compartment. You can order a
replacement battery pack through your
local RadioShack store. Install the new
battery pack, place the remote keypad
on the base, and charge the battery for
15 hours before using it.
