43-3906.fm Page 3 Friday, February 14, 2003 10:41 AM
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.
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.
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.

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.Ô
SURGE PROTECTION
Your phone 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 phone or power lines can
damage your phone.
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.

Introduction

10
Cordless phones such
as this one require AC
power to operate.
When the power is off,
you cannot make or
receive calls using your
phone. To be safe, 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.
When AC power is lost,
the phone loses the
security accessprotection 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.
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.
SAVE THESE
INSTRUCTIONS
INTRODUCTION
Thank you for purchasing RadioShack
Handsfree Phone. It combines the
clarity of 900 MHz communication with
portability and convenience. The
cordless handset clips to your belt or
clothing so you can make and answer
calls away from the base. The headset
allows you to use your hands while you
talk. 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
shows you the incoming caller
information, even when you are already
talking on the phone. !
INSTALLATION
SELECTING A LOCATION
You can place the phone’s base on a
desk or table. Select a locations that is:
Ô
43-3906.fm Page 11 Friday, February 14, 2003 10:41 AM
• near a telephone line jack
• out of the way of normal activities
• away from electrical machinery,
electrical appliances, metal walls
or filing cabinets, wireless
intercoms, alarms, and room
monitors
• away from other cordless phones
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
and the requirements adapted by the
ACTA. The telephone cord and
modular plug provided is Part 68
compliant for connecting to the
telephone company network.
Ô NOTE 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.
! CAUTION !
You must use
a Class 2
power
source that supplies
9V DC and delivers at
least 210 mA. Its
center tip must be set
to positive and its plug
must fit the phone's
DC IN 9V jack. The
supplied adapter
meets these specifications.

specifications could
damage the phone or the
adapter.
•
Always connect the
AC adapter to the
phone before you
connect it to AC
power. When you
finish, disconnect the
adapter from AC
power before you
disconnect it from the
phone.
1. Plug one end of the supplied long
modular cord into the TEL LINE
jack on the bottom of the base.Ô
2. Plug the modular cord’s other end
into a modular phone line jack.
3. Insert the supplied AC adapter’s
barrel plug into the DC IN 9V jack
on the bottom of the base.
4. Route the
adapter’s
cord
through
the strain
relief slot
on the
back of
the base, then plug the adapter
into a standard AC outlet.
CONNECTING/CHARGING
THE BATTERY PACK
Installation
Ô NOTE Ô
The USOC number of
the jack to be installed is
RJ11C (or RJ11W for a
wall plate jack).
The phone comes with a rechargeable
nickel metal hydride (Ni-MH) battery
pack in the handset, but not connected.
Before using your phone, you must
connect the battery pack, then charge it
for about 15–20 hours.

then place the battery pack in the
compartment.
5. Replace the cover.
To charge the battery pack, place the
handset on the base. The CHARGE/IN
USE indicator on the base lights and
Total:00 appears on the handset

RECHARGING
PACK
• 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.
13
43-3906.fm Page 14 Friday, February 14, 2003 10:41 AM
While holding PAGE, return the
handset to the base for about 3

o
o
WARNING
o
Dispose of the old
battery pack promptly
and properly. Do not
burn or bury it. See
“Battery Safety
Instructions” on Page 9
for additional information
on proper battery
handling.
• If the base loses power for about
an hour while the handset is away
from it, the security access
protection code might be lost.
Place the handset on the base to
reset the code.
• 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.
• 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 !
Installation
Be sure the battery pack
is properly connected
before you try to charge
it. The CHARGE/IN USE
indicator lights when the
handset is on the base,
even if the battery pack
is not connected.
14
• 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.
• The handset loses its security
access-protection code if the
battery pack is completely
discharged. Place the handset on
43-3906.fm Page 15 Friday, February 14, 2003 10:41 AM
the base to recharge the battery
pack and reset the code.
• Using a dry cloth, clean the
charging contacts on the handset
and base about once a month.
• 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.
• 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, 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 and charge it for
about 15–20 hours.
