FCC STATEMENT
This phone is hearing aid compatible.
Your telephone complies with Part 68 of FCC Rules and
the requirements adopted by the ACTA. On the back of
this product is a label with this product’s FCC Product
Identification number in the format DYFMT08B433904. If
requested, you must provide this information to the
telephone company.
Note: You must not connect your telephone to:
• coin-operated systems
• most electronic key telephone systems
• party-line systems

Ô NOTE Ô
Surge Protection
Your telephone has built-in protection 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
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 when storms approach to
reduce the possibility of damage.
Connection to party line service is subject to state tariffs.
Contact the state public utility commission, public service
commission, or corporation commission for information.
We have designed your telephone to conform to federal
regulations, and you can connect it to most telephone
lines. However, each telephone (and each 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. The REN for your
telephone is the digits represented by ##, without a
decimal point (e.g., 03 is a REN of o.3), in the Product
Identification number found on the bottom of your
telephone.
• Consult your local RadioShack store or an
experienced radio/TV technician for help.
• If you cannot eliminate the interference, the FCC
requires that you stop using your telephone.
Changes or modifications not expressly approved by
RadioShack may cause interference and void the user’s
authority to operate the equipment.
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules.
Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1)
this device may not cause harmful interference, and (2)
this device must accept any interference received,
including interference that may cause undesired
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.
operation.
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.
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 and the
requirements adopted by the ACTA. The telephone cord
and modular plug provided is Part 68 compliant for
connecting to the telephone company network.
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.
THE FCC WANTS YOU
TO KNOW
This equipment has been tested and found to comply
with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to
Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to
provide reasonable protection against harmful
interference in a residential installation. This equipment
generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy
and, if not installed and used in accordance with the
instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio
communications.
However, there is no guarantee that interference will not
occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does
cause harmful interference to radio or television
reception, which can be determined by turning the
equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to
correct the interference by one or more of the following
measures:
SETUP
Note: The USOC number of the jack to be installed is
RJ11C (or RJ11W for a wall plate jack).
If your home has specially wired alarm equipment
connected to the telephone line, be sure that installing
the telephone does not disable your alarm equipment. If
you have questions about what will disable your alarm
equipment, contact your telephone company or a
qualified installer.
SERVICE AND REPAIR
If your telephone is not performing as it should, take it to
your local RadioShack store for assistance. To locate

on RadioShack's website (www.radioshack.com), or call

internal components can cause a malfunction and might
invalidate its warranty and void your FCC authorization to
operate it.
