FEATURES
Your RadioShack CID-932 Voice Caller ID uses the latest caller
identification technology. The CID-932 announces the caller’s
telephone number only and displays all available information.
The CID-932 stores and displays up to 50 single (number only)
or multiple (name and number) Caller ID records and lets you
review them at any time.
It also has these features:
Audio Announcement of Incoming Calls — announces the
telephone number of the calling party twice after the first ring.
Voice VIP Messages — lets you record a message to go with
each of up to 15 VIP phone numbers, then announces the corresponding message whenever you receive a call from one of
those numbers.
Volume Control — lets you adjust the volume of the CID-932’s
announcements.
New Call Indicator — flashes when you receive a new call.
Extra Large 3-Line Liquid Crystal Display — makes it easy to
read the Caller ID information.

Important Information:
• To use this 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
Your Caller ID displays the caller’s name only if that option
is available in your area.
The actual number of Caller ID records your Caller ID will store
depends on the amount of Caller ID information sent by the
phone company.
FCC INFORMATION
We have designed your CID-932 to conform to federal regulations, and you can connect it to most telephone lines. However,
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 is on the bottom of your
device.
4
43-932.fm Page 5 Wednesday, January 12, 2000 9:56 AM
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 (or three in rural
areas), your telephones might not ring. If ringer operation is impaired, remove a device from the line.
Your CID-932 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 located on
the bottom of your CID-932.
Note: You must not connect your CID-932 to:
• coin-operated systems
• party-line systems
• most electronic key telephone systems
Your telephone company may make changes in its facilities,
equipment, operations or procedures that could affect the proper functioning of your equipment. If they do, you will be notified
in advance to give you an opportunity to maintain uninterrupted
telephone service.
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.
5
43-932.fm Page 6 Wednesday, January 12, 2000 9:56 AM
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.

PREPARATION
INSTALLING A BATTERY
You need one 9V battery (not supplied) to provide backup power for the CID-932’s memory in the event of a power failure. For
the best performance, we recommend an alkaline battery, available at your local RadioShack store.
Cautions:
• Use only a fresh battery of the required size and recommended type.
• Always remove old or weak batteries. They can leak chemicals that can damage electronic circuits.
Follow these steps to install the battery.
9 VOLT BATTER Y
Note: The screw is packed separately. Insert the screw into the
battery compartment cover when you first install the battery.
1. Use a small Phillips screwdriver to remove the screw from
the battery compartment cover.
2. Lift the cover in the direction of the arrow.
3. Place a fresh battery in the compartment, as indicated by
the polarity symbols (+ and –) marked inside.
4. Replace the battery compartment cover and tighten the
screw.
10
43-932.fm Page 11 Wednesday, January 12, 2000 9:56 AM
Notes:
• If you are not installing the battery for the first time, press
any control button and LOW disappears.
• Replace the battery when
LOW
appears.
• Replace the battery within 15 seconds to avoid losing
Caller ID information and Voice VIP messages that are
stored in memory.
Warning: Dispose of old batteries promptly and properly. Do
not burn or bury them.
Caution: If you do not plan to use the CID-932 with batteries for
a month or longer, remove the batteries. Batteries can leak
chemicals that can destroy electronic parts.
MOUNTING THE CID-932
You can set the CID-932 flat on a desk, shelf, or table or attach
the supplied bracket if you want the CID-932 to sit up at an angle. You can mount the CID-932 on a wall.
Attaching the Bracket
1. Align the two slots on the
bottom of the CID-932 with
the hooks on the bracket.

OFF
2. Insert a screw into each hole, letting the
head extend 1/8 inch from the wall.
SPEAKER
1. Use the supplied template to mark the
mounting screw locations on the wall.
Then drill a hole in the wall at each
marked location.

12
43-932.fm Page 13 Wednesday, January 12, 2000 9:56 AM
CONNECTING THE CID-932
The CID-932 connects to a modular phone line jack and your
telephone.
1. Unplug the telephone line cord from your telephone and
plug it into the CID-932’s PHONE jack.
2. Plug the supplied line cord into the CID-932’s LINE jack
and the other end into the modular phone line jack.
Note: The CID-932 must be connected directly to the telephone line. To share the same wall jack with a fax, modem
or answering machine, use a duplex adapter (available at
your local RadioShack store) to split the wall jack so it can
feed the CID-932 directly.
13
43-932.fm Page 14 Wednesday, January 12, 2000 9:56 AM
Cautions:
You must use a Class 2 power source that supplies 9V DC and delivers at least 300 mA. Its center tip must be set to positive and its plug must fit
the CID-932's DC9V jack. The supplied adapter meets
these specifications. Using an adapter that does not meet
these specifications could damage the CID-932 or the
adapter.
!
• Always connect the AC adapter to the CID-932 before you
connect it to AC power. When you finish, disconnect the
adapter from AC power before you disconnect it from the
CID-932.
3. Insert the supplied AC adapter’s barrel plug into the DC9V
jack on the bottom of the CID-932. Plug the AC adapter
into a nearby outlet that does not operate with a light
switch.
Note: AC power is required in order for the CID-932’s voice
feature to function. Be sure to connect AC power.

CARE
To enjoy your CID-932 for a long time:
• Keep the CID-932 dry. If it gets wet, wipe it dry immediately.
• Use and store the CID-932 only in normal temperature
environments.
• Handle the CID-932 gently and carefully. Don’t drop it.
• Keep the CID-932 away from dust and dirt.
• Wipe the CID-932 with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it
looking new.
Modifying or tampering with the CID-932’s internal components
can cause a malfunction and invalidate its warranty. If your CID932 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-932 until you have resolved the problem.
22
43-932.fm Page 23 Wednesday, January 12, 2000 9:56 AM
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.
LIGHTNING
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 during storms to reduce the possibility of damage.
