Note: You must not connect your TAD to:
IMPORTANT CALLER ID
INFORMATION
• coin-operated systems
• party-line systems
To use the TAD’s Caller ID, you must be in
an area where Caller ID service is available,
and you must subscribe to the service.
Where Caller ID is offered, one or more of
the following options are generally available:
• caller's number only
• caller's name only
• caller's name and number
Note: For the TAD’s Caller ID memory dial
feature to operate, you must receive the caller's number.
READ THIS BEFORE
INSTALLATION
We have designed your TAD to conform to
federal regulations and you can connect it to
most phone lines. However, each device that
you connect to the TAD line draws power
from the line. We refer to this power draw as
the TAD's ringer equivalence number, or
REN. The REN is shown on the bottom of
your TAD.
If you use more than one telephone or other
device on the line, add up all the RENs. If the
total is more than five (three in rural areas),
your TAD might not ring. If ringer operation is
impaired, remove one of the devices from
the line.
FCC STATEMENT
Your TAD complies with Part 68 of FCC
Rules. Upon request, you must provide the
phone's FCC registration number and REN

• most electronic key phone systems
THE FCC WANTS YOU TO
KNOW
In the unlikely event that your TAD 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.
LIGHTNING
Your TAD 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
TAD.
Lightning damage is not common. Nevertheless, if you live in an area that has severe
electrical storms, we suggest that you unplug
your TAD when storms approach to reduce
the possibility of damage.

ˆ Features
Your RadioShack 12-Memory Speakerphone
combines a speakerphone, a high-quality fully-digital answering system and a Caller ID
unit in one system. The TAD (Telephone Answering Device) prevents you from missing
incoming calls and messages. Fully digital
means the TAD stores all messages on a
computer chip — there are no tape mechanism to wear out and no tapes to bother with.
This gives you capabilities that tape-based
answering machine do not have. For example, you can listen quickly from message to
message without listening to all of them.
The TAD also shows the caller's telephone
number (and name, if available in your area)
and the current date and time, as provided
by your local phone company to Caller ID
service subscribers. It saves up to 62 Caller
ID records that you can review and call back.
Pause — lets you enter a pause for systems
that require an access code (9, for example)
before you dial an outside number.
Redial — lets you quickly redial the last
number dialed.
Volume Control — lets you control the volume of the sound you hear through the handset, speakerphone, or headset.
Adjustable Ringer Volume — lets you set
the ringer to low or high, or even turn it off.

Flash — sends an electronic switchhook signal for use with special phone services such
as Call Waiting.
Privacy — prevents the person on the
phone from hearing your conversation with
someone in the room.
Hold — lets you put a call on hold.
TAD FEATURES
Dual Outgoing Messages — lets you
record two outgoing messages of up to about
32 seconds each: one for when you want
callers to leave a message, the other for
when you want to play an announcement
without recording callers' messages.
Voice Date/Time Stamp — records the day
and time each message was recorded.
Two-Way Recording — lets you record both
sides of your phone conversation.
Memo Recording — lets you leave message for yourself or others in your home or
office.

ˆ Preparation
INSTALLING A BACKUP
BATTERY
Warning: Dispose of old batteries promptly
and properly. Do not burn or bury them.
You can install an optional 9V backup battery
so if the AC power fails or you unplug the
TAD, the TAD will save the messages, time
and day settings, CBT and remote operation
security codes, and Caller ID records. For
the best performance and longest life, we
recommend you use a RadioShack alkaline
battery.
Caution: If you do not plan to use the TAD
for a month or longer, remove the battery. A
battery can leak chemicals that can destroy
electronic parts.
Cautions: Use only a fresh battery of the required size and recommended type.
1. Use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the
two screws on the battery compartment
cover, then remove the cover.
MOUNTING THE TAD
You can place the TAD on a desk or table,
mount it on a standard wall plate, or mount it
directly on a wall. Select a location that is
near both an AC outlet and a modular phone
line jack.
Notes:
T
LIF
• Your TAD connects directly to a modular
telephone line jack. If your phone line
jack is not a modular jack, you can
update the wiring yourself, using jacks
and adapters available at your local
RadioShack store. Or, you can let the
phone company update the wiring for
you.
• The USOC number of the jack to be
installed is RJ11C.
2. Snap the battery's contacts firmly onto
the battery connector and place the battery in the compartment.
Cautions:
You must use a Class 2 power
source that supplies 9V AC
and delivers at least 400 mA.
Its plug must fit the TAD's AC 9V 400mA
jack. The supplied adapter meets these
specifications. Using an adapter that
does not meet these specifications
could damage the TAD or the adapter.
!
3. Replace the cover and secure it with the
two screws.
Replace the battery when
appears.

into the wall plate jack, align the base's
keyhole slots with the wall plate studs,
and slide the base downward to secure
it.
To mount the TAD directly on a wall, with
the power cord and the long modular
cords hanging down, insert the tabs on
the narrow end of the bracket into the
slots on the bottom of the base then
push the tab on the wide end of the
bracket into the lower slot on the bottom
of the base.
When you first connect power, the TAD
beeps once, MEMORY TEST appears, and
the message counter counts up from 0 to

Notes:
• The maximum recording capacity is 16
minutes (or 68 recorded messages), or
62 Caller ID records.
• Many local phone companies use calling
party control (CPC) to signal that the
caller has hung up. Your TAD recognizes a CPC signal and releases the
line. If the TAD records phone company
messages or dial tones, your local
phone company probably does not use
CPC.

rings of every call you receive. It stores up to
62 numbers only or name and number call
records in its Caller ID memory.
It also shows the date and time the call was
received. The display also shows if caller information is not available or if the sender
chose not to send the information (see “Caller ID Messages” on Page 22).

you press RESET.
CARE
To enjoy your RadioShack 12-Memory
Speakerphone for a long time:
• Keep the phone dry. If it gets wet, wipe it
dry immediately.
• Use and store the phone only in normal
temperature environments.
• Handle the phone gently and carefully.
Do not drop it.
• Keep the phone away from dust and dirt.
• Wipe the phone with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it looking new.
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.

THOSE OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ARE LIMITED
IN DURATION TO THE DURATION OF THE WRITTEN LIMITED WARRANTIES CONTAINED

Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts or the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to

price. All replaced parts and products, and products on which a refund is made, become the property of RadioShack. New or reconditioned parts and products may be used in the performance of
warranty service. Repaired or replaced parts and products are warranted for the remainder of the
original warranty period. You will be charged for repair or replacement of the product made after the
expiration of the warranty period.
This warranty does not cover: (a) damage or failure caused by or attributable to acts of God, abuse,
accident, misuse, improper or abnormal usage, failure to follow instructions, improper installation or
maintenance, alteration, lightning or other incidence of excess voltage or current; (b) any repairs
other than those provided by a RadioShack Authorized Service Facility; (c) consumables such as
fuses or batteries; (d) cosmetic damage; (e) transportation, shipping or insurance costs; or (f) costs
