900 MHz Digital Spread Spectrum
Cordless Telephone
with Caller ID/Call Waiting ID
FEATURES
Your RadioShack 900 MHz Digital
Spread Spectrum Cordless Telephone
uses advanced technology to give you
superior audio quality and extended
range.
The phone’s Caller ID unit records each
caller’s telephone number (and name, if
available in your area) and the date and
time of the call, as provided by your local
phone company to Caller ID service
subscribers. If you subscribe to Call
Waiting with Caller ID, the phone can
show you the incoming caller information, even when you are already talking
on the phone.
Your phone has these features:
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.
20-Number Memory Dialing — lets
you store up to 20 numbers in memory
for easy dialing.
Headset Jack — lets you connect an
optional headset (available from your local RadioShack store) for hands-free
convenience.
Tone/Pulse Dialing — lets you use
your phone with either type of service.
Hearing-Aid Compatibility — lets you
use the phone with hearing aids that
have a T (telephone) switch.
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.
Page — lets you send a signal from the
base to the handset to page someone or
to help you locate the handset.
Volume Control — lets you adjust the
volume you hear through the handset.
Adjustable Ringer/Tone Volume—
lets you choose between two volumes
and tones for the phone’s ringer.
Facedown or Faceup Handset Charging — you can place the handset on the
base face down or face up (to show the
Caller ID display, for example).
Wall Mountable — you can mount the
phone on a wall to save surface space.
Ample Talk and Standby Time — the
supplied battery (when fully charged)
provides about 3.5 hours of talk time or
7 days of standby time.

Important Caller ID Information
This symbol is intended to alert
you to the presence of uninsulated dangerous voltage within
the product’s enclosure that might
be of sufficient magnitude to constitute a risk of electric shock. Do
not open the product’s case.
To use the phone’s Caller ID and Call
Waiting with Caller ID 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:
!
This symbol is intended to inform
you that important operating and
maintenance instructions are
included in the literature accompanying this product.
• caller’s number only
• caller’s name only
• caller’s name and number.
We have designed your phone to conform to federal regulations, and you can
connect it to most telephone lines. However, each phone (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 is on the bottom of your
phone.
3
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 phone 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 on the bottom of
your phone.
Note: You must not connect your phone
to:
• coin-operated systems
• party-line systems
• most electronic key telephone systems
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 phone. For this reason, the
phone should not be your only telephone. To be safe, you should also
have a phone that does not require
AC power to operate (not a cordless
phone) so you can still make and receive calls if there is an AC power
failure.
• Some cordless phones operate at
frequencies that might cause interference to nearby TVs and VCRs.
To minimize or prevent such interference, the base of the cordless
4
phone should not be placed near or
on top of a TV or VCR.
• Your cordless phone operates on
standard radio frequencies, as allocated by the FCC. Even though your
phone’s access protection code prevents unauthorized use of your
phone line, it is possible for other radio units operating on similar frequencies within a certain area to
unintentionally intercept your conversations and/or cause interference. This possible lack of privacy
can occur with any cordless phone.
FCC STATEMENT
The phone 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 RadioShack store if
the problem still exists.

CONNECTING AND
CHARGING THE BATTERY
PACK
The phone comes with a rechargeable
nickel-cadmium battery pack in the
handset. Before using your phone, you
must connect the battery pack, then
charge it for about 24 hours.
1. Press down and slide off the battery
pack compartment cover.
2. 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), replace the battery pack, and replace
the cover.
Notes:
• 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. Return the handset
to the base for about 5 seconds to
reset the security access-protection
code.
• If the handset or the base loses
power, the security access-protection code might be lost. To reset the
code, return the handset to the base
for about 5 seconds.
• Using a pencil eraser, clean the
charging contacts on the handset
and base about once a month.
To charge the battery pack, place the
handset either faceup or facedown on
the base. The CHARGE/IN USE indicator on the base lights and Total:00
appears on the handset display.
Recharge the battery pack when Low
Battery flashes on the display.
Note: If the CHARGE/IN USE indicator
flashes when the handset is on the
base, the battery pack is not connected
or loosely connected. Reconnect the
battery pack securely.
• 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 a call until you recharge the battery pack.
• About once a month, fully discharge
the battery by keeping the handset
off the base until Low Battery
flashes on the display. 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 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 25).

seats properly.
• With a headset connected, you can
make or answer calls as usual using
the keys on the handset.
• 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 phone displays this information after the second ring, 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 20).
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 phone’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 appear.
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 VOL/CID
to scroll
through the Caller ID records from the
newest to the oldest, or VOL/CID
to
scroll back through the records. To scroll
quickly through the records, hold down
VOL/CID
or .

record. When you scroll past the first
record, the total record number appears,
then the last record.
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.
To exit the Caller ID record display,
press CALL ID.

AREA CODE
DIALING NUMBERS FROM
A CALLER ID RECORD
When the area code of the received call
is the same as the one you stored (see
“Storing Your Area Code” on Page 11),
the caller ID record does not show the
area code. If it is different, the record
shows the area code.
To dial a local number stored in a Caller
ID record, recall the record, then press
TALK. If it is a long distance call, press 1
(1 appears before the displayed number) before you press TALK. If you want
to add or delete the area code, press 3
before you press TALK.
However, you can add or delete the area code on the display. When the record
is on the display, press 3 to add or delete the area code. Pressing 3 again deletes or adds the area code.
When you dial the number or store it into
memory, the phone dials or stores the
number as it appears on the display.

by the caller, for example) you cannot
dial from that record.

TROUBLESHOOTING
We do not expect you to have any problems with your phone, but if you do, these
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 about 5 seconds to reset the security access-protection
code.
The display flashes slowly
when the handset is faceup on
the base.
Make 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, the handset
cannot display Low Battery.)
Low volume or unusual
sounds.
Someone has picked up another phone on the
same line. Hang up the other phone.
Dropout or mute.
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.
Press CH/SELECT to change the channel.
Hang up and redial the number.
22
Problem
Suggestion
The phone cannot be operated
at a useful distance from the
base because the signal
becomes weak or noisy (handset’s range has decreased).
Lift the base’s antenna to a vertical position.
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 neither the handset’s nor base’s
antenna is touching a metal surface.
Return the handset to the base and recharge the
battery pack.
Be sure the battery pack is connected correctly.
Be sure the handset is properly seated on the
base.
Replace the battery pack (see “Replacing the
Battery Pack” on Page 25).
The handset does not ring or
receive a page.
Move the handset closer to the base.
Lift the base’s antenna to a vertical position.
Be sure the battery pack in the handset is connected and charged.
Move the base away from other electrical
devices.
You have an incoming call, but
do not receive any Caller ID
information.
Let the phone ring twice before you answer so
the ohone has time to record the Caller ID information.
Check that the phone is correctly and securely
connected.
Check with 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 the phone to your local RadioShack store for assistance.

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

REPLACING THE
BATTERY PACK
If you follow the instructions in “Connecting and Charging the Battery Pack” on
Page 8, 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, then charge
it for about 24 hours.
1. Press down and slide off the battery
pack compartment cover.
2. 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 replace the
cover.
Warning: Dispose of the old battery
pack promptly and properly. Do not burn
or bury it.
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 it 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: The EPA certified RBRC® Battery Recycling Seal on the nickelcadmium (Ni-Cd) battery indicates RadioShack is voluntarily participating in an industry
program to collect and recycle these
batteries at the end of their useful life,
when taken out of service in the United
States or Canada. The RBRC program
provides a convenient alternative to
placing used Ni-Cd batteries into the
trash or the municipal waste stream,
which may be illegal in your area.
Please call 1-800-THE-SHACK (1-800843-7422) for information on Ni-Cd battery recycling and disposal bans/restrictions in your area. RadioShack’s
involvement in this program is part of the
company’s commitment to preserving
our environment and conserving our
natural resources.
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
25
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 when
storms approach to reduce the possibility of damage.
