INTRODUCTION
Thank you for purchasing a RadioShack 2.4
GHz Multi Handset Expandable Cordless
Telephone. Unlike other conventional
cordless telephones, your telephone
supports up to four handsets on a single
telephone line. You can add a handset to
any room in your home or office that has an
AC outlet. No more running to the other end
of the house to answer the phone! You can
transfer outside calls to other handsets. If
you subscribe to Call Waiting with Caller ID,
the phone shows you the incoming caller
information, even when you are already
talking on the phone.
•
When AC power is lost,
the phone loses the
digital security code
connection between the
base and the handset.
When power is restored,
put the handset on the
base briefly to restore
this connection so you
can use the handset.
•
Your phone operates on
standard radio
frequencies as allocated
by the FCC.
Cordless phones require AC power to
operate. When the power is off, you cannot
make or receive calls by using your phone.
You should also have a phone that does not
need AC power to operate (not a cordless
phone), so you can still make and receive
calls if there is an AC power failure. !
•
It is possible for other
radio units operating
nearby on similar
frequencies to
unintentionally intercept
your conversation or
cause interference. This
possible lack of privacy
can occur with any
cordless phone.
The digital answering system stores up to
12 minutes of messages on a computer chip
and records each message’s day and time.
This gives you advanced capabilities over
tape-based answering machines:
• You can delete individual messages
and save the rest.
• There are no tapes to bother with
and no tape mechanisms to wear
out.
The remote operation feature lets you
operate your answering system from a
touch-tone phone (or from a rotary phone
with a pocket tone dialer).

Introduction
! IMPORTANT !
As an ENERGYSTAR Partner,
RadioShack Corporation has
determined that this product
meets the ENERGYSTAR guidelines
for energy efficiency.
IMPORTANT
INFORMATION
This telephone has been tested and found
to comply with all applicable UL and FCC
standards.
Important Information
FCC STATEMENT
Ô NOTE Ô
You must not connect your
phone to:
•
•
coin-operated systems
most electronic key
telephone systems
WARNING: To reduce the risk of
fire or shock hazard, do not expose
this product to rain or moisture.
Your telephone compiles with Part 68 of the
FCC Rules.Upon request, you must provide
the phone’s FCC registration number and
REN to your phone company. These
numbers are on the base unit.
Your phone 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. Ô
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 on the back of
your phone.
CAUTION
The lightning symbol is intended to alert you to the presence of
uninsulated dangerous voltage within this product’s enclosure that
might be of sufficient magnitude to constitute a risk of electric shock.
Do not open the product’s case.

.
CAUTION: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF ELECTRIC
!
RISK OF ELECTRIC
SHOCK DO NOT OPEN
!
SHOCK, DO NOT REMOVE COVER OR BACK. NO USERSERVICEABLE PARTS INSIDE. REFER SERVICING TO
QUALIFIED PERSONNEL.
The exclamation symbol is intended to inform you that important operating
and maintenance instructions are included in the literature accompanying
this product.
Important Information
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 phone. The telephone company
notifies you of these changes in advance, so
you can take the necessary steps to prevent
interruption of your telephone service.
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 phone.
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.
5
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
When using your telephone equipment, basic safety precautions should
always be followed to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock and injury to
persons, including the following:
1. Do not use this product near water, for example, near a bathtub,
wash bowl, kitchen sink, or laundry tub, in a wet basement or near a
swimming pool.
2. Avoid using a telephone (other than a cordless type) during an
electrical storm. There may be a remote risk of electric shock from
lightning.
3. Do not use the telephone to report a gas leak in the vicinity of the
leak.
4. Use only the power cord and batteries indicated in this manual.
Do not dispose of batteries in a fire. They may explode. Check with
local codes for possible special disposal instructions.

Important Caller ID Information
IMPORTANT CALLER
ID INFORMATION
To use Caller ID and Call Waiting, 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:
• caller’s number only
• caller’s name only
• caller’s name and number
If you subscribe to Call Waiting ID and
Caller ID, the system can show you the
incoming caller information, even when you
are already talking on the phone.
READ THIS BEFORE
INSTALLATION
We have designed your phone to conform
to federal regulations and you can connect it
to most phone lines. However, each device
that you connect to the telephone line draws
power from the line. We refer to this power
draw as the phone’s ringer equivalence
number, or REN. The REN is on the bottom
of your phone.
If you use more than one phone or other
device on the line, add up all the RENs. If
the total is more than five (three in rural
areas), your phones might not ring. If ringer
operation is impaired, remove one of the
devices from the line.
7
INSTALLATION
Before using your phone, carefully peel the
protective film off the display. The film
protects the handset window during
shipment and is not necessary for use.
SELECTING A LOCATION
You can place the phone’s base on a desk
or table, or mount it on a standard wall plate
or directly on a wall. Select a location that
is:Ô
• near an accessible AC outlet
• near a telephone line jack
• out of the way of normal activities
Installation
• away from electrical machinery,
electrical appliances, metal walls or
filing cabinets, wireless intercoms,
alarms, and room monitors
• away from other cordless phones
Ô NOTES Ô
•
If your home has
specially wired alarm
equipment connected to
the telephone line, be
sure that installing the
system does not disable
your alarm equipment.
If you have questions
about what will disable
alarm equipment,
contact your telephone
company or a qualified
installer.
•
The USOC number of
the jack to be installed is
RJ11C (or RJ11W for a
wall plate jack).
8
The base’s location affects the handset’s
range. If you have a choice of several
locations, try each to see which provides the
best performance.
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. Ô
On a Desk Top
1. Plug one end of
the supplied long
modular cord into
the TEL LINE jack

on the base lights.
Recharge the battery pack when
Low Battery flashes on the display.
Installation
If you have trouble replacing the battery
pack, take the phone to your local
RadioShack for assistance.
Recharging the Battery Pack
• If the battery pack becomes weak
during a call, Low Battery flashes.
When this happens, you cannot make a
call until you recharge the battery
pack.!
• 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.)
! IMPORTANT !
Be sure the battery pack is
properly connected before
you try to charge it. The
CHARGE indicator lights
when the handset is on the
base, even if the battery
pack is not connected.
• 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.
• Using a damp cloth, clean the charging
contacts on the handset about once a
month.
11
• If you are not going to use your phone
for an extended period, disconnect the
battery pack. This increases the battery
pack’s usable life.
o
WARNING
o
Dispose of the old battery
pack promptly and properly.
Do not burn or bury it.
There is a risk of explosion
if battery is replaced by an
incorrect type. Dispose of
used batteries according to
the instructions.
• The supplied battery pack should last
for about a 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, 800 mAh
battery pack with a connector that fits
the socket in the battery compartment.
You can order a replacement battery
pack through RadioShack. Install the
new battery pack and charge it for
about 15–20 hours.

on the base to recharge
it while the headset is

handset on your belt for
greater convenience
when using a headset.
To connect the headset, gently flip open the
rubber headset jack cover on the side of the
handset, then insert the headset’s plug into
the jack. Ô
Connecting a headset disconnects the
handset’s earpiece and microphone.
VOL/RING/ or VOL/RING/ on the handset
