This product can provide caller ID information only if both you and the caller
are in areas offering caller ID service and if both telephone companies use
compatible equipment.
Caller ID with call waiting lets you see the name and telephone number of
the caller before answering the telephone, even while on another call.
It might be necessary to change your telephone service to use caller ID with
call waiting features.
Contact your telephone company if:
• You have both caller ID and call waiting, but as separate services (you
might need combined service).
• You have only caller ID service, or only call waiting service.
• You do not subscribe to any caller ID or call waiting services, but wish to
order them.
If you subscribe to caller ID service, information about each caller appears
after the first or second ring. If you answer a call before the caller’s
information appears on the screen, it will not be saved in the call log.
• The call log stores up to 50 entries. Each entry has up to 24 digits for
the phone number and 15 characters for the name. If the phone number
has more than 15 but fewer than 24 digits, only the last 15 digits appear.
If the name has more than 15 characters, only the first 15 characters are
shown and saved in the call log.
• You can review, redial, and copy an entry into the directory.
• Entries appear in reverse chronological order.
• When the call log is full, the oldest entry is deleted to make room for
new incoming call information.

n Notes:
• The caller ID information might not be available for every incoming
call. The callers might intentionally block their names and/or telephone
numbers.
• For call log entries with numbers between 16 and 23 digits, in order to
view the entire number, you must save the entry to the directory (see
“Save a Call Log Entry to the Directory” on page 26).
• If the phone number has more than 24 digits, it is not saved or shown in
the call log.
Missed Calls Indicator
When there are unreviewed calls in the call log,
the handset shows XX MISSED CALL(S).
Each time you review a call log entry marked NEW, the
number of missed calls decreases by one.
When you have reviewed all the missed calls, the
missed calls indicator no longer shows.
If you do not want to review the missed calls one by

• If the handset moves out of range during a telephone conversation,
there might be interference.
• To improve reception, move closer to the telephone base.
Maintenance
• Taking care of your telephone–Your cordless telephone contains
sophisticated electronic parts, so it must be treated with care.
• Avoid rough treatment–Place the handset down gently. Save the original
packing materials to protect your telephone if you ever need to ship it.
• Avoid water–Your telephone can be damaged if it gets wet. Do not use
the handset outdoors in the rain, or handle it with wet hands. Do not
install the telephone base near a sink, bathtub or shower.
• Electrical storms–Electrical storms can sometimes cause power surges
harmful to electronic equipment. For your own safety, take caution when
using electrical appliances during storms.
• Cleaning your telephone–Your telephone has a durable plastic casing
that should retain its luster for many years. Clean it only with a soft cloth
slightly dampened with water or a mild soap. Do not use excess water or
cleaning solvents of any kind.
w Caution: Remember that electrical appliances can cause serious injury

telephone base and the cordless handset by radio waves, so there
is a possibility that the cordless telephone conversations could be
intercepted by radio receiving equipment within range of the cordless
handset. For this reason, you should not think of cordless telephone
conversations as being as private as those on corded telephones.
Electrical power: The telephone base of this cordless telephone must
be connected to a working electrical outlet. The electrical outlet should
not be controlled by a wall switch. Calls cannot be made from the
cordless handset if the telephone base is unplugged or switched off, or
if the electrical power is interrupted.
Potential TV interference: Some cordless telephones operate at
frequencies that may cause interference to televisions and VCRs. To
minimize or prevent such interference, do not place the telephone base
of the cordless telephone near or on top of a TV or VCR. If interference
is experienced, moving the cordless telephone farther away from the TV
or VCR often reduces or eliminates the interference.
Rechargeable batteries: Exercise care in handling batteries in order not
to create a short circuit with conducting material such as rings, bracelets,
and keys. The battery or conductor may overheat and cause harm.
Observe proper polarity between the battery and the battery charger.
Nickel-metal hydride rechargeable batteries: Dispose of these
batteries in a safe manner. Do not burn or puncture the battery. Like
other batteries of this type, if burned or punctured, they could release
caustic material which could cause injury.

FCC Information
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the requirements for a
Class B digital device under Part 15 of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)
rules. These requirements are intended 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:
•Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
•Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
•Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the
receiver is connected.
•Consult your local RadioShack store or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
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
operation. Privacy of communications may not be ensured when using this telephone.
To ensure safety of users, the FCC has established criteria for the amount of radio
frequency energy that can be safely absorbed by a user or bystander according to the
intended usage of the product. This product has been tested and found to comply
with the FCC criteria. The handset may be safely held against the ear of the user. The
telephone base shall be installed and used such that parts of the user’s body other than
the hands are maintained at a distance of approximately 20 cm (8 inches) or more.
This equipment complies with Part 68 of the FCC rules and with technical requirements
adopted by the Administrative Council for Terminal Attachments (ACTA). The label
on the back or bottom of this equipment contains, among other things, a product
identifier in the format US:AAAEQ##TXXXX. This identifier must be provided to your
local telephone company upon request.

telephone network must comply with applicable Part 68 rules and technical
requirements adopted by ACTA. A compliant telephone cord and modular plug is
provided with this product. It is designed to be connected to a compatible modular
jack that is also compliant. An RJ11 jack should normally be used for connecting to
a single line and an RJ14 jack for two lines. See Installation Instructions in the user’s
manual.
