FEATURES
Your RadioShack ET-1102 900 MHz
Digital Spread Spectrum Cordless Telephone uses advanced cordless telephone technology to give you superior
audio quality and extended range.
The ET-1102’s Caller ID unit records
each caller’s telephone number (and
name, if available in your area) and the
day and time of the call, as provided by
your local phone company to Caller ID
service subscribers. And, if you subscribe to Call Waiting with Caller ID, the
ET-1102 can show you the incoming
caller information, even when you are already on the phone.
Your ET-1102 has these features:
900 MHz Operation — provides longer
range and less interference than many
other cordless phones.
Spread Spectrum Technology —
spreads the signal across several frequencies, providing additional security
for your phone conversations.
Caller ID Memory — stores up to 50
Caller ID records.
3-Line Liquid Crystal Display — lets
you view an entire Caller ID record on
one screen.
10-Number Memory Dialing — lets you
store up to 10 numbers in memory for
easy dialing.
Volume Control — lets you adjust the
volume you hear through the handset.
Adjustable Ringer — lets you choose
high or low volume for the ET-1102’s
ringer.
Page — lets you send a signal from the
base to the handset to page someone or
to help you locate the handset if you
have misplaced it.
Facedown or Faceup Handset Charging — you can place the handset on the
base facedown or faceup (to show the
Caller ID display, for example).
Wall Mountable — you can mount the
ET-1102 on the wall to save space on
your desk top.
Ample Talk and Standby Time — the
supplied battery (when fully charged)
provides about 4 hours of talk time or 7
days of standby time.
20 Channels — automatically selects a
clear channel when you make or answer
a call.
Security Access-Protection Code —
automatically prevents other cordless
phone users from using your phone line
while the handset is off the base.
Redial — lets you quickly redial the last
number dialed.

43-1102.fm Page 3 Tuesday, August 17, 1999 4:37 PM
Flash — sends an electronic switchhook signal for use with special phone
services, such as Call Waiting.
Tone/Pulse Dialing — lets you use either type of service, and you can easily
switch from pulse to tone dialing for
long-distance, bank-by-phone, or other
special services.
Auto Talk — you can set the phone so
you can answer a call simply by lifting
the handset from the base.
Important Caller ID Information
To use the phone’s Caller ID and Caller
ID with Call Waiting features, you must
be in an area where those services are
available and you must subscribe to
those services through your local phone
company.
Where Caller ID is offered, one or more
options are generally available:
• caller’s number only
• caller’s name only
Any Key Answer — you can set the
phone so you can press any key to answer a call when the handset is away
from the base.
Hearing-Aid Compatibility — lets you
use your phone with hearing aids that
have a T (telephone) switch.
• caller’s name and number

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 ET-1102. 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 receive calls if there is an
AC power failure.
• When AC power is lost, the ET-1102
loses the security access-protection
code connection between the base
and the handset. When power is restored, put the handset on the base
briefly to restore this connection so
you can use the handset.
READ THIS BEFORE
INSTALLATION
We have designed your phone to conform to federal regulations and you can
connect it to most phone lines. However,
each device that you connect to the telephone line draws power from the line.
We refer to this power draw as the
phone’s ringer equivalence number, or
REN. The REN is on the bottom of your
phone.
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, your phones
might not ring. In rural areas, a total
REN of three might impair ringer operation. If ringer operation is impaired, remove one of the devices from the line.
4
FCC STATEMENT
Your telephone complies with Part 68 of
FCC Rules. You must, upon request,
provide the FCC registration number
and the REN to your phone company.
These numbers are on the bottom of the
base.
You must not connect your phone to any
of the following:
• coin-operated systems
• party-line systems
• most electronic key phone systems
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 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 Radio Shack store if
the problem still exists.

CONNECTING AND
CHARGING THE BATTERY
PACK
7. Plug the modular cord into a modular phone line jack.
The ET-1102 comes with a rechargeable nickel-cadmium battery pack in the

43-1102.fm Page 10 Tuesday, August 17, 1999 4:37 PM
1. Press down and slide off the battery
pack compartment cover as shown.
Important: Be sure the battery pack is
properly connected before you try to
charge it. The CHARGE indicator lights
when the handset is on the base, even if
the battery pack is not connected.
Notes:
2. Unfasten the plastic retainer strap
and lift the battery pack out of the
compartment.
3. Plug the battery pack’s connector into the socket in the compartment
(the connector fits only one way),
then replace the battery pack and

4. Replace the cover.
To charge the battery pack, place the
handset either faceup or facedown on
the base. The CHARGE indicator on the
base lights and Total:00 appears on
the handset display.
CHARGE Indicator
Recharge the battery pack when Low
Battery flashes on the display.
10
• When you first use the phone after
charging or recharging the battery
pack, the phone might not work and
you might hear an error tone when
you press TALK. If this happens, return the handset to the base for
about 5 seconds. This resets the security access-protection code.
• If the base loses power for 30 minutes while the handset is away from
it, the security access-protection
code might be lost. To reset the
code, return the handset to the base
for about 5 seconds.
The handset does not lose its security access-protection code even if
the battery pack is completely discharged.
• Using a pencil eraser, clean the
charging contacts on the handset
and the base about once a month.
43-1102.fm Page 11 Tuesday, August 17, 1999 4:37 PM
• If the battery pack becomes weak
during a call, the handset beeps every 3 seconds and Low Battery
flashes. When this happens, you
cannot make another call on the
phone until you recharge the battery
pack.
• About once a month, fully discharge
the battery pack by keeping the
handset off the base until Low
Battery flashes. Otherwise, the
battery pack loses its ability to fully
recharge.
• If the display is blank and the phone
does not work, recharge the battery
pack. (The battery power might be
too low to light the display.)
• If you are not going to use your
phone for an extended period of
time, disconnect the battery pack.
This increases the battery pack’s
usable life.
• The supplied battery pack should
last for about a year. When it loses
its ability to fully recharge, order a
replacement battery pack from your
local RadioShack store (see “Replacing the Battery Pack” on
Page 26).
SETTING THE DIALING
MODE
Set DIAL MODE on the back of the base
for the type of service you have. If you
are not sure which type you have, once
the battery pack is fully charged, do this
test.
1. Be sure DIAL MODE is set to T
(tone).
2. Lift the handset, press TALK, and
listen for a dial tone.
3. Press any number other than 0.
Note: If your phone system requires
that you dial an access code (9, for
example) before you dial an outside
number, do not dial the access code
either.
If the dial tone stops, you have
touch-tone service. Leave DIAL
MODE set to T.
If the dial tone continues, you have
pulse service. Set DIAL MODE to P
(pulse).

You can make or answer calls with
hands-free convenience using an optional headset that has a 3/32-inch (2.5mm) plug. Contact your local RadioShack store for a suitable headset.
To connect the headset, pull open the
rubber cover marked
on the side of
the handset, then insert the headset’s
plug into the jack.
You can use a handset holder (available
from your local RadioShack store) to
hang the handset on your belt for greater
convenience.
When you finish using the headset, disconnect it from the handset and close
the rubber cover to protect the jack.

CALLER ID OPERATION
If you subscribe to Caller ID service from
your phone company, the phone company sends information about the call, as
well as the time and date, between the
first and second rings of every call you
receive.
The ET-1102 displays this information
when it receives a call, and it stores up
to 50 Caller ID records for later review. It
also shows if caller information is unavailable or if the name and number
were blocked by the caller (see “Caller
ID Messages” on Page 21).
If you subscribe to Call Waiting with Caller ID, you will hear a tone through the
handset when a call comes in, then the
Caller ID record appears. If you want to
answer the incoming call, press FLASH.
To resume the previous phone conversation, press FLASH again.
If the ET-1102’s Caller ID memory becomes full, any new call replaces the
oldest call’s record.
REVIEWING CALLER ID
RECORDS
To review the Caller ID records, lift the
handset and press CALL ID. The number
of new Caller ID records, if any, and the
total number of records appears.

Note: If the handset is faceup on the
base, it shows the number of Caller ID
records, so you can see if you have new
records to review.
Repeatedly press t to scroll through the
Caller ID records from the newest to the
oldest, or s to scroll back through the
records. To scroll quickly through the
records, hold down t or s.
When you scroll past the last record,
End appears. When you scroll past the
first record, the record totals appear.
The top line of each record shows the
date, time and the number of calls from
that number. The second line shows the
caller’s name, and the third line shows
the caller’s phone number.

TROUBLESHOOTING
We do not expect you to have any problems with your phone, but if you do, the following suggestions might help.
Problem
The phone does not work or works
poorly.
Suggestion
Be sure the base’s phone line cord and
AC adapter are correctly and securely
connected.
Be sure the battery pack in the handset
is connected and charged.
Return the handset to the base for a few
seconds to reset the security accessprotection code.
The display flashes slowly when the
handset is faceup on the base.
Be sure the battery pack in the handset
is properly connected.
The handset stops working or works
poorly during a call.
Move the handset closer to the base.
Lift the base’s antenna to a fully vertical
position.
Be sure the handset’s battery pack is
charged. (If the battery pack power is
too low, it does not have enough power
to light the Low Battery indication on
the display.)
Low volume or unusual sounds.
Someone has picked up another phone
on the same line. Hang up the other
phone.
Severe noise interference.
Keep the handset away from computers, remote control toys, wireless microphones, alarm systems, intercoms,
room monitors, fluorescent lights, and
electrical appliances.
Move to another location or turn off the
source of interference.
Hang up and redial the number.
23
43-1102.fm Page 24 Tuesday, August 17, 1999 4:37 PM
Problem
The phone cannot be operated at a
useful distance from the base
because the signal becomes weak
or noisy (handset’s range has
decreased).
Suggestion
Lift the base’s antenna to a fully vertical
position.
Be sure neither the handset’s nor base’s
antenna is touching a metal surface.
Recharge the battery pack.
The handset battery pack does not
charge.
Check the charging contacts on the
handset and base. If they are dirty, clean
them with a pencil eraser.
Be sure the battery pack is properly connected.
Be sure the handset is properly seated
on the base.
Replace the battery pack (see “Replacing the Battery Pack” on Page 26).
Handset does not ring or receive a
page.
Lift the base’s antenna to a fully vertical
position.
Move the handset closer to the base.
Move the base away from other electrical devices.
Recharge the battery pack.
You have an incoming call, but do
not receive any Caller ID information.
Let the phone ring twice before you
answer so the system has time to record
the Caller ID information.
Check that the system is correctly and
securely connected.
Call your phone company to verify that
your Caller ID service is active.
If you still have problems, disconnect the phone. If other phones on the same line
work properly, the fault is in this phone or its installation. If you cannot find the problem, take your ET-1102 to your local RadioShack store for assistance.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Your RadioShack ET-1102 900 MHz Digital Spread Spectrum Cordless Telephone is
an example of superior design and craftsmanship. The following suggestions will help
you care for your ET-1102 so you can enjoy it for years.
Keep the ET-1102 dry. If it gets wet, wipe it dry immediately. Liquids
might contain minerals that can corrode the electronic circuits.
Use and store the ET-1102 only in normal temperature environments.
Temperature extremes can shorten the life of electronic devices, damage battery packs, and distort or melt plastic parts.
Keep the ET-1102 away from dust and dirt, which can cause premature
wear of parts.
Handle the ET-1102 gently and carefully. Dropping it can damage circuit boards and cases and can cause the ET-1102 to work improperly.
Use only a battery pack of the required size and recommended type.
Batteries can leak chemicals that damage your ET-1102’s electronic
parts.
Wipe the ET-1102 with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it looking
new. Do not use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, or strong detergents to clean the ET-1102.
Modifying or tampering with the ET-1102’s internal components can cause a malfunction and might invalidate its warranty and void your FCC authorization to operate it. If
your ET-1102 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 ET-1102 until you have resolved the problem.

REPLACING THE
BATTERY PACK
If you follow the instructions in “Connecting and Charging the Battery Pack” on
Page 9, the battery pack should last
about one year. If the battery pack does
not hold a charge for more than 2 hours
after an overnight charge, replace it with
a new 3.6-volt, 600 mAh 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 as described below, then charge it for about
24 hours.
1. Press down and slide off the battery
pack compartment cover as shown.
2. Unfasten the plastic retainer strap
and lift the battery pack out of the
compartment, then gently pull on the
battery connector to disconnect it.
3. Insert the new battery pack’s connector into the socket in the compartment, place the battery pack into
the compartment, and refasten the
retainer strap.
26
4. Replace the cover.
Cautions:
• You must use a replacement battery
pack of the same size and type.
• Do not dispose of the battery pack in
a fire because it might explode.
• Do not open or mutilate the battery
pack.
• Be careful not to short the battery
pack by touching the connector’s
pins with conducting materials, such
as rings, bracelets, and keys. The
battery pack or conductor might
overheat and burn.
If you have trouble replacing the battery
pack, take the phone to your local RadioShack store for assistance.
Important: This product contains a rechargeable nickel-cadmium battery
pack. At the end of the battery pack’s
useful life, it must be recycled or disposed of properly. Contact your local,
county, or state hazardous waste management authorities for information on
recycling or disposal programs in your
area. Some options that might be available are: municipal curb-side collection,
drop-off boxes at retailers such as your
local RadioShack store, recycling collection centers, and mail-back programs.

THE FCC WANTS YOU TO
KNOW
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.
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.
Your phone might cause TV or radio interference even when it is operating
properly. To determine whether your
phone is causing the interference, turn
off your phone. If the interference goes
away, your phone is causing it. Try to
eliminate the interference by:
If you cannot eliminate the interference,
the FCC requires that you stop using
your phone.
Some cordless telephones operate on
frequencies that might cause interference to nearby TVs and VCRs. To minimize or prevent such interference, the
base of the cordless telephone should
not be placed near or on top of a TV or
VCR.
LIGHTNING
Your telephone has built-in lightning protection to reduce the risk of damage
from surges in telephone line and power
line current. This lightning protection
meets or exceeds FCC requirements.
However, lightning striking the telephone or power lines can damage your
telephone.
Lightning damage is not common. Nevertheless, if you live in an area that has
severe electrical storms, we suggest
that you unplug your phone during
storms to reduce the possibility of damage.
• moving your phone away from the
receiver
• connecting your phone to an AC
outlet that is on a different electrical
circuit from the receiver
• contacting your local RadioShack
store for help
