INTRODUCTION
! IMPORTANT !
•
•
•
•
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 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.

Introduction
Thank you for purchasing the
RadioShack 900 MHz Cordless
Telephone. Your phone 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
shows you the incoming caller
information, even when you are already
talking on the phone. !

fire or shock hazard, do not expose
this product to rain or moisture.
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
back of your phone.
Your phone is not intended to be used
with party-line systems. Connection to

PERSONNEL.
The exclamation symbol is intended to inform you that important operating and maintenance instructions are included in
the literature accompanying this product.
43-3578.book Page 5 Thursday, February 12, 2004 3:12 PM
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 back of your phone.
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 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.

43-3578.book Page 6 Thursday, February 12, 2004 3:12 PM
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
Important Information
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 you unplug your phone when
storms approach to reduce the
possibility of damage.
