Privacy — lets you temporarily turn off
the speakerphone and handset microphone.
Adjustable Ringer and Receiver Volume — lets you adjust the ringer and receiver’s volume to the desired level.
Hearing-Aid Compatibility — allows
you to use your telephone with a hearing
aid that is equipped with a telephone
switch.
Your telephone is ETL listed and meets
all applicable FCC standards.
FCC STATEMENT
We have designed your telephone to
conform to federal regulations, and you
can connect it to most telephone 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
(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 phone might not ring.
The ringer operation is impaired, remove one of the devices from the line.
Your telephone complies with Part 68 of
FCC Rules, you must, upon request,
provide the FCC registration numbers
and the REN to your telephone company. Both numbers are shown on the bottom of the telephone.
Note: You must not connect your telephone to:
• coin-operated systems
• party-line systems
• most electronic key telephone systems

ˆ Preparation
SELECTING A LOCATION
You can place your telephone on a
shelf, desk or table, or mount it on a
wall. Select a location that is:
2. Plug one end of the supplied long
modular cord into the LINE jack on
the back of the base.
LINE Jack
• Near an accessible telephone jack
• Not in the way of normal activities in
the area
3. Plug the modular cord’s other end
into a modular phone line jack.
On a Desk Top
Use the supplied mounting bracket as a
stand when you place the base on a
desk, shelf, or table.
1. Insert the two smaller tabs on the
mounting bracket into the matching
slots near the keyhole slot on the
bottom of the phone’s base. Then
press down on the bracket until its
two larger tabs snap into place.
On a Wall Plate or Wall
1. Insert the two smaller tabs on the
mounting bracket into the matching
slots near the center bottom of the
phone’s base. Then press down on
the bracket until its two larger tabs
snap into place.
2. Plug one end of the supplied short
modular cord into the LINE jack on
the back of the base as in “On a
Desk Top,” Step 2.

3. Plug the modular cord’s other end
into the wall plate jack, then align
the base’s keyhole slots with the
wall plate studs and slide the base
downward to secure it.
2. Plug one end of the supplied long
modular cord into the LINE jack on

4. Press and lift out
the handset holder, rotate it 180°,
then snap it back
into place so it
holds the handset.
CONNECTING THE
HANDSET
Plug one end of the coiled cord into the
modular jack on the handset. Then connect it to the jack on the left side of the
telephone’s base.
Note: To mount the phone directly on a
wall, you need two screws (not supplied)
with heads that fit into the keyhole slots
on the bottom of the base.
Follow the steps under “On a Wall Plate
or Wall,” then apply these additional instructions for placement on a wall.
1. Drill two holes 315/16 inches (100
mm) apart. Then thread a screw into
each hole, letting the heads extend
about 5/16 inch (8 mm) from the wall.
Note: Your local RadioShack store sells
a variety of longer coiled handset cords,
which are especially useful when you
mount the phone on a wall.
CONNECTING AN
OPTIONAL AC ADAPTER
Your telephone operates from telephone
line power. In some areas, however, the
telephone line might not provide enough
power to operate all of your telephone’s
features. If the speakerphone’s volume
is too low, even with the volume control
set to its highest level, or if the speakerphone does not work, you need to connect the supplied AC adapter.
Preparation
5
43-3601.fm Page 6 Monday, April 10, 2000 5:53 PM
Cautions:
You must use a Class 2
power source that supplies
9V DC and delivers at least
200 mA. Its center tip must be set to
positive and its plug must fit the telephone's DC 9V jack. The supplied
adapter meets these specifications.
Using an adapter that does not meet
these specifications could damage
the telephone or the adapter.
!
• Always connect the AC adapter to
the telephone before you connect it
to AC power. When you finish, disconnect the adapter from AC power
before you disconnect it from the
telephone.
SETTING THE DIALING
MODE
Set T/P (Tone/Pulse) for the type of service you have. If you are not sure which
type you have, do this simple test.
1. Set T/P to T. Lift the handset and listen for a dial tone.
2. Press any number except 0. If your
phone requires that you dial an
access code (9, for example) before
you dial an outside number, do not
press the access code number
either.
3. If the dial tone stops, you have
touch-tone service. Leave T/P set to
T.
Plug the barrel plug of the supplied
adapter into the DC 9V jack on the back
of the telephone. Plug the other end into
the AC outlet.
If the dial tone continues, you have
pulse service. Set T/P to P.

dial, then press SPEAKERPHONE and
return the handset to the cradle.
USING A HEADSET
For hands-free convenience, you can
connect an optional headset with a 3/32inch (2.5 mm) plug to the telephone.
Contact your local RadioShack store for
a suitable headset.
With the handset off the hook, plug the
headset's cord into the HEADSET jack
on the left side of the telephone.
USING REDIAL
You can quickly redial the last number
dialed by pressing REDIAL while you
hear a dial tone. The redial number is replaced each time you dial a new number.
Note: If you press FLASH while dialing a
number, only the digits preceding
FLASH are stored in redial memory.
USING FLASH
Many special telephone services, such
as Call Waiting, require a switchhook
signal. FLASH provides the electronic
equivalent of a switchhook operation.
HEADSET Jack
To switch from the headset to the handset, unplug the headset cord from the
telephone, replace the handset on the
cradle, then pick up the handset to make
or receive a call.
USING PRIVACY
To temporarily disconnect the speakerphone or handset without ending the call
(so you can talk privately with someone
in the room), press PRIVACY. The PRIVACY indicator lights and the person on
the other end of the phone line cannot
hear you.
To resume your call, press PRIVACY
again. The PRIVACY indicator goes off.
You can also use the privacy feature
with the handset microphone.
8
For example, if you have Call Waiting,
you can put a call on hold and take a
second incoming call on the same line
by pressing FLASH.
Neither the flash entry nor any digits you
dial after you press FLASH are stored in
redial memory. However, you can store
a flash entry within a memory dialing sequence as the first digit. The flash entry
counts as one digit in memory.
Note: If you do not have any special
phone services, pressing FLASH might
disconnect the current call.
USING INTEROFFICE
SIGNALS
Some interoffice telephone systems provide special services that require a
switchhook signal. For example, a single
switchhook signal followed by an extension can transfer a call from one office to
another inside the office telephone network.
Operation
43-3601.fm Page 9 Monday, April 10, 2000 5:53 PM
You can store a single switchhook signal
in memory at the beginning of an extension. Then, when a call comes in asking
for the person at that extension, you can
transfer the call with the push of a single
button.
USING PAUSE
In some telephone systems, you must
dial an access code (9, for example) and
wait for a second dial tone before dialing
an outside number. When you manually
dial a number, or when you store a number in memory, you can have your telephone pause anywhere during the
dialing sequence. Simply press PAUSE
at the desired location.
When you redial or memory dial a number, the telephone pauses for about 3.6
seconds at the pauses entry. For longer
pauses, press PAUSE more than once.
Each pause entry counts as one digit in
memory.
MEMORY DIALING
The telephone can store up to 20 phone
numbers in memory. Follow these steps
to store a number in memory.
1. With the handset off hook or the
speakerphone on, press STORE.
2. Enter the telephone number, then
press STORE.
3. Press the desired memory location
button.
4. Use a pointed object, such as a
straightened paper clip, to pry up
the plastic cover from over the
memory index card. Write the number you stored next to the memory
location button, then replace the
plastic cover.
To dial a stored number, press the
memory location button for the number.
Chain-Dialing Service Numbers
USING SPECIAL TONE
SERVICES
Some computer services, such as alternate long-distance and bank-by-phone,
require tone signals for communications.
If you have pulse service, you can still
use these special tone services by following these steps.
1. Connect to the special service using
pulse dialing.
For quick recall of numbers for special
services (such as bank by phone), store
each group of numbers in its own memory location.
Dial the service’s main number first.
Then, at the appropriate place in the
call, press the memory location button
for the location where the additional information is stored.
2. When the special service answers,
set T/P to T.
3. When you complete the call, hang
up the handset and set T/P back to
P.
Operation

43-3601.fm Page 10 Monday, April 10, 2000 5:53 PM
ˆ Troubleshooting
If your telephone is not operating properly, check these items:
• Is the phone properly connected?
• Is T/P set correctly?
• This phone might not operate when
another phone is in use on the same
line (especially in areas with low
telephone voltage). If the telephone’s volume drops or you hear
unusual sounds, check to see if
another phone on the same line is
off hook. Hang up the other phones
to correct the problem.
• When the party on the phone cannot
hear you, but you can hear them,
check the PRIVACY indicator. If the
light is on, press PRIVACY so it is off.
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 your phone to your local
RadioShack store for assistance.
ˆ Care and Maintenance
To enjoy your telephone for a long time:
• Keep the telephone dry. If it gets
wet, wipe it dry immediately.
• Use and store the telephone only in
normal temperature environments.
• Handle the telephone gently and
carefully. Don’t drop it.
• Keep the telephone away from dust
and dirt.
• Wipe the telephone with a damp
cloth occasionally to keep it looking
new.
Modifying or tampering with the telephone’s internal components can cause
a malfunction and invalidate its warranty. If your telephone is not performing as
it should, take it to your local RadioShack store for assistance. If the
10
trouble is affecting the telephone lines,
the phone company can ask you to disconnect your telephone until you have
resolved the problem.
THE FCC WANTS YOU TO
KNOW
In the unlikely event that your telephone
causes problems on the telephone line,
the telephone company can disconnect
your service. The telephone company
attempts to notify you in advance. If advance notice is not practical, the telephone company notifies you as soon as
possible and advises you of your right to
file a complaint with FCC.
Also, the telephone company can make
changes to its lines, equipment, operations, or procedures that could affect the
operation of this telephone. The tele-
Troubleshooting
43-3601.fm Page 11 Monday, April 10, 2000 5:53 PM
phone company notifies you of these
changes in advance, so that 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 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
frequent electrical storms, we suggest
that you unplug your telephone during
storms to reduce the possibility of damage.
