ˆ Important
Information
• To use this Caller ID (CID), 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 CID displays the caller’s name
only if that option is available in your
area.
• The actual number of Caller ID
records your CID will store depends
on the amount of Caller ID information sent by the phone company.
Your CID is ETL listed to UL standards
and meets all applicable FCC requirements.
4
Important Information
FCC INFORMATION
We have designed your CID to conform to
federal regulations, and you can connect it
to most telephone lines. However, each
CID (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 device’s ringer equivalence number, or REN. The REN is on the bottom of
your CID.
If you use more than one phone or other
device on the line, add up all the RENs. If
the total is more than five (three in rural
areas), your phones might not ring. If ringer operation is impaired, remove a device
from the line.
Your CID complies with Part 68 of the
FCC Rules. You must, upon request, provide the FCC registration number and the
REN to your phone company. Both numbers are on the bottom of the CID.
You must not connect your CID to:
• coin-operated systems
• party-line systems
Important Information
5
• most electronic key telephone systems
In the unlikely event that your CID 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 CID. The phone company
notifies you of these changes in advance,
so you can take the necessary steps to
prevent interruption of your phone service.
This CID complies with the limits for a
Class B digital device as specified in Part
15 of the 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.
6
Important Information
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
CID 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.
LIGHTNING
Your CID has built-in protection circuits to
reduce the risk of damage from surges in
telephone and power line current. These
protection circuits meet or exceed the
FCC requirements. However, lightning
striking the telephone or power lines can
damage your CID.
Lightning damage is not common. Nevertheless, if you live in an area that has severe electrical storms, we suggest that
you unplug your CID when storms
approach to reduce the possibility of damage.
Important Information

ˆ Preparation
INSTALLING BATTERIES/
SETUP
You need three AAA batteries (not supplied) to power your Caller ID (CID). For
the longest operation and best performance, we recommend alkaline batteries,
available at your local RadioShack store.
Cautions:
• Always use fresh batteries of the
required size and recommended
type.
• Do not mix old and new batteries, different types of batteries (alkaline,
standard, or rechargeable), or
rechargeable batteries of different
capacities.
Follow these steps to install batteries.
1. Use a flat-blade screwdriver to lift and
remove the battery compartment
cover.
2. Insert three fresh AAA batteries into
the compartment as indicated by the
10
Preparation
polarity symbols (+ and –) marked
inside.
3. Turn the CID over so you can see the
display. After you install the batteries,
I;J B7D=K7=; flashes briefly, then
;D=B?I> (the default display language)
flashes for about 10 seconds.
Note: If you do not press any button
for about 10 seconds, the CID automatically selects English and the time
and date appear.
4. To select another language, press
REVIEW 8. <H;D9> flashes. Press
REVIEW 8 until the desired language flashes.
5. Press REVIEW 9 to store the
selected language. Or, after about 10
seconds, the CID automatically
stores the displayed language.
'(0&&7C '%&' appears.
6. Replace the cover.
When
flashes or the display dims, replace the batteries.
Warning: Dispose of old batteries
promptly and properly. Do not burn or
bury them.
Preparation
11
Caution: If you do not plan to use the CID
for a month, remove the batteries. Batteries can leak chemicals that can destroy
electronic parts.
Notes:
• Before you replace the batteries,
have fresh ones on hand. If you do
not install new batteries within about
2 minutes after removing the old
ones, the CID records and the date
and time will be lost. The records
cannot be replaced, but the date and
time will automatically reset when you
receive the next call.
• Unplug the modular line cord from the
CID before you replace the batteries.
• To reset the language, hold down
REVIEW 8 and 9 until I;J B7D=K7=;
flashes briefly then ;D=B?I> flashes on
the display. Then repeat Steps 4–5 to
set the language.

To remove the bracket from the CID, slide
the bracket down then lift and remove it.
ˆ Operation
INCOMING CALLS
When you subscribe to Caller ID service
from your phone company, the phone
company sends the caller’s phone number (and name, if available) and the call’s
time and date between the first and second rings. Your CID receives and displays
this information for each call and updates
the current date and time. You cannot
manually set the date and time.
97BB and the CALL indicator flash when
you have an incoming call, and the call
record appears for 20 seconds, then the
number of new calls appears.
D;M flashes and the NEW CALL indicator flashes to show that you have received new calls since the last time you
reviewed the stored records.
16
Operation
USING CALL REJECT
When you receive a call you do not want
to answer, press CALL REJECT. The
CALL REJECT indicator lights and the
CID announces “We don’t accept calls
of this nature. Please remove our phone
number from your calling list. Thank
you.”
Note: The CID displays the caller’s
phone number until you delete it (see
“Deleting Caller ID Records” on
Page 20).
MESSAGE WAITING
Note: The message waiting feature does
not work with stutter dial tone service.
Check with your phone company for the
type of service you have.
If you subscribe to the telephone company’s message waiting service and
have a voice-mail message waiting, D;M
97BB and C;II7=;ýM7?J?D= appear on the
display. C;II7=;ýM7?J?D= remains on the
display until you retrieve the message.
If you are talking on the phone when a call
comes in, the incoming call automatically
rolls over to message waiting. The phone
Operation
17
company sends the information after you
end the current call and C;II7=; M7?J?D=
appears on the display.
In some areas, callers can block the sending of their Caller ID information. When a
caller blocks the Caller ID information, #
FH?L7J; 97BB¶ appears instead of the call
information.
REVIEWING CALL RECORDS
Each time you receive a call, your CID
stores a record that you can see while you
are on the phone, or review later. Your
CID saves up to 50 call records, replacing
the oldest call record with a new call
record.
Each call record includes the call number
(order in which the call is received), the
time and date of the call, the caller’s
phone number (if available), and the caller’s name (if available).
To review the call records, repeatedly
press REVIEW 8 or 9.
;D: E< B?IJ appears when you try to scroll
before the first or after the last call record.

blank.
Replace the batteries. See
“Installing Batteries/Setup”
on Page 10.
You have an
incoming call,
but do not
receive any
call information.
Someone picked up a telephone on the same phone
line before the CID recorded
the call record. This is not a
malfunction.
Check that the CID is correctly and securely connected.
Call your phone company to
verify that your Caller ID service is active.

Troubleshooting
CARE
Keep the CID dry; if it gets wet, wipe it dry
immediately. Use and store the CID only
in normal temperature environments.
Handle the CID carefully; do not drop it.
Keep the CID away from dust and dirt,
and wipe it with a damp cloth occasionally
to keep it looking new.
Modifying or tampering with the CID’s
internal components can cause a
malfunction and invalidate its warranty. If
your CID is not performing as it should,
take it to your local RadioShack store for
assistance. If the trouble is affecting the
telephone lines, the phone company can
ask you to disconnect your CID until you
have resolved the problem.
