OWNER’S MANUAL —
Please read before using this equipment.
43-3903
Thank you for purchasing a RadioShack Advance
CID/Call Waiting ID Box. Your Caller ID box stores and
displays up to 64 Caller ID records. It displays the caller’s
telephone number (and name, if available in your area) and
the current date and time, as provided by your local phone
company to Caller ID service subscribers.
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
The actual number of Caller ID records your Caller ID box
stores depends on the Caller ID information sent by the phone
company.
! IMPORTANT !
To use this Caller ID box, you must be in an
area where Caller ID service is available, and
you must subscribe to the service.
Ô NOTE Ô
• The backlight does not work if the AC
adapter is disconnected.
• The USOC number for both the single-line
and two-line jacks 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 Caller ID box 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.
Ô BATTERY NOTES Ô
• Dispose of dead batteries promptly and
properly.
• Do not burn or bury batteries.
• Use only fresh batteries of the required size
and recommended type.
• Do not mix old and new batteries, different
types of batteries (standard, alkaline, or
rechargeable), or rechargeable batteries of
different capacities.
• If you do not plan to use the Caller ID box for
a month or more, remove the batteries.
Batteries can leak chemicals that can
destroy electronic parts.
• When replacing batteries, do not press any
buttons on the Caller ID box after you
remove the old batteries. Doing so could
erase all stored information.
• When replacing the batteries, have fresh
ones on hand before you begin. If you do not
install the new batteries within about 2
minutes after removing the old ones, you will
lose all the information stored in the
Caller ID box.

CALLER ID BOX SETUP
Caller ID is a service provided by your telephone company. When you subscribe to this
service, between the first and second rings,
the telephone company sends the caller’s
telephone number (and name, if available) and
the call’s date and time. The Caller ID box
receives and displays this information for each
call and updates the display with the current
date and time. Your Caller ID box saves up
to 64 Caller ID records, then replaces the
oldest Caller ID record with each new one.

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. Ô

If your Caller ID box is not performing as it
should, take it to your local RadioShack
store for assistance. To locate your nearest
RadioShack, use the store locator feature on
RadioShack's website
(www.radioshack.com), or call 1-800-The
Shack (843-7422) and follow the menu
options. Modifying or tampering with the

operate it.
SPECIFICATIONS
Power Source ........... Regulated 6V DC, 200mA,
Positive (+) Tip AC Adapter
Use of any other power source may cause
damage.
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:
• 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.
• If you cannot eliminate the interference,
the FCC requires that you stop using
your Caller ID box.
Changes or modifications not expressly
approved by RadioShack may cause
interference and void the user’s authority to
operate the equipment.
SURGE PROTECTION
Your Caller ID box has built-in protection
circuits to reduce the risk of damage from
surges in telephone line and power line
RadioShack Corporation
Fort Worth, Texas 76102
current. These protection circuits meet or
exceed the FCC requirements. However,
lightning striking the Caller ID box or power
lines can damage your Caller ID box.
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.
FCC STATEMENT
Your Caller ID box complies with Part 68 of
FCC Rules and the requirements adopted
by the ACTA. On the bottom of this product
is a label with this product’s FCC Product
Identification number in the format
US: DYFND01B433903. If requested, you
must provide this information to the
telephone company.
You must not connect your Caller ID box to:
• coin-operated systems
• most electronic key telephone systems
Your Caller ID box is not intended to be
used with party-line systems. 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 Caller ID box to
conform to federal regulations, and you can
connect it to most telephone lines. However,
each Caller ID box (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 Caller ID box is the digits represented
by ##, without a decimal point (03
represents a REN of 0.3 for example) in the
Product Identification on the number found
on the bottom of your Caller ID box.
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.
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 Caller ID box. The telephone company
notifies you of these changes in advance, so
you can take the necessary steps to prevent
interruption of your telephone service.
