FEATURES
Your RadioShack CT-400 Handheld Cellular
Phone combines advanced technology and design
simplicity. To complement its small size and easyto-use design, the CT-400 provides a full range of
features.
Easy-to-Read Digital Display — the supertwist
liquid-crystal display provides essential call information and can be easily read from almost any angle.
Special Cellular Service Features — the phone is
preprogrammed to work with special (subscriptiononly) messaging services offered by many cellular
carriers, including calling line ID and voice mail notification.
One-Touch Dialing Memory — lets you dial an
important number at the touch of a single button.
Memory Dialing — lets you store up to 40 phone
numbers and names in memory, and dial any
stored number by simply entering its one- or twodigit memory number (1–40).
Call Register Lists — let you quickly review and
redial any of the last 10 numbers that you called,
and (if you subscribe to the appropriate cellular
services) the numbers for any of the last 10 calls
you missed or received.
Keyguard — helps prevent accidental key presses
when the phone is in a pocket or bag, for example.

17-1101.fm Page 3 Wednesday, July 21, 1999 9:57 AM
Security Features — to prevent unauthorized
phone use, you can set up to three different levels
of call restrictions (to allow only incoming calls, for
example) while still allowing calls to the preprogrammed emergency number.
One-Touch Emergency Dialing — lets you dial
the emergency number preprogrammed into your
phone, by briefly holding down the 9WXYZ key.
Scratchpad Memory — lets you temporarily store
a number (during a call, for example), then easily
dial it or store it in memory.
Ample Talk and Standby Time — the supplied
battery (fully charged) provides about 1 hour, 40
minutes of talk time or 21 hours of standby time.
Silent Service — lets you set the phone to quietly
beep instead of ring when it receives a call, to
avoid disturbing others.
Call Timers — let you keep track of the individual
and cumulative call times (air-time), and includes a
timer that you can reset at any time.
Two Phone Number Capability — lets you use
this one phone with two different cellular services,
with a different phone number from each.
We recommend you record your phone’s Electronic Serial Number (ESN) here. The number is on the handset
under the battery.

PREPARATION
INSTALLING THE BATTERY
To install the battery, place
it flat against the back of
the phone with the tab facing up and toward the top
of the phone. Then slide
the battery toward the top
of the phone until it snaps
into place.
Tab
To remove the battery, be sure the phone is turned
off, then hold down the tab, slide the battery down,
and lift it off the phone.
IMPORTANT BATTERY TIPS
• You must fully charge a new battery at least 24
hours before you first use it. See “Charging the
Battery” on Page 10.
• Use only the supplied charger and use only
batteries recommended for this phone.
• A new battery’s full performance is achieved
only after two or three complete charge and
discharge cycles.
• When you are not using the charger, disconnect it from power. Do not leave the charger
connected for more than a week, since overcharging could shorten the battery’s life.
• If left unused, a fully charged battery discharges itself in about a week.
8
17-1101.fm Page 9 Wednesday, July 21, 1999 9:57 AM
• When the battery is not in use, store it uncharged in a cool and dark place.
• The battery is a sealed unit with no serviceable parts. Do not try to open the case.
• You can purchase additional standard or extended capacity batteries through your local
RadioShack store.
• A battery can be charged and discharged hundreds of times, but it eventually wears out.
When the operating time (talk time and standby time) is noticeably shorter than normal, it is
time to get a new battery.
• Leaving the battery in a hot or cold place, such
as in a closed car in the summer or winter, reduces the battery’s capacity and life. Always
try to keep the battery between 59° and 77°F
(15° and 25°C). A phone with a battery that is
too hot or too cold might not work, even when
the battery is fully charged, until the battery returns to a normal temperature. Nickel metal
hydride (NiMH) batteries are particularly limited in temperatures below 14°F (–10°C).
• Use the battery only for its intended purpose.
• Never use any charger or battery that is damaged or worn out.
9
17-1101.fm Page 10 Wednesday, July 21, 1999 9:57 AM
• Do not short circuit the battery. Accidental
short circuiting can occur when a metal object
(coin, paper clip, pen, or similar) directly connects the battery’s + and – terminals (the metal strips on the back of the battery), such as
when you carry a spare battery in your pocket
or purse. Short circuiting the terminals might
damage the battery or the object connected to
it.
• Do not dispose of batteries in a fire!
NiCd
NiMH
Nickel Cadmium and Nickel Metal
Hydride batteries must be recycled
or disposed of properly. They must
not be disposed of in municipal
waste.
CHARGING THE BATTERY
Once you install the battery on the phone, follow
these steps to charge the battery using the supplied charger.
1. Insert the charger’s
barrel plug into the
jack on the bottom of
the phone.
2. Connect the charger’s AC plug to a standard
AC outlet. The phone beeps and its battery
charge bar appears and begins to scroll.
10
17-1101.fm Page 11 Wednesday, July 21, 1999 9:57 AM
Notes:
• You can use your phone during charging,
but charging takes longer.
• For the fastest charging, be sure the phone
is turned off, if you are not expecting a call.
• If the battery is too hot or cold, charging
stops until the battery temperature returns
to normal.
3. The battery charge bar stops scrolling when
the battery is fully charged. Disconnect the
charger from the AC outlet first, then disconnect it from the phone.
Using the supplied battery (fully charged), you
have about 1 hour, 40 minutes of talk time or 21
hours of standby time.
When to Recharge the Battery
Your phone displays the battery charge bar whenever the phone is on to keep you informed about
the battery’s power level. The higher the bar, the
more power left in the battery.
11
17-1101.fm Page 12 Wednesday, July 21, 1999 9:57 AM
You can recharge the battery (as described in
“Charging the Battery” on Page 10) at any time.
However, when your phone gives you these lowbattery indications, recharge the battery as soon as
possible:
• When only a few minutes of talk time remain,
the phone sounds a warning tone and displays
BATTERY LOW at regular intervals.
• When the battery charge level is too low for
the phone to operate, the phone displays RECHARGE BATTERY and sounds a warning
tone. The phone automatically turns off about
10 seconds later.
Note: The phone does not sound low battery warning tones if silent service is set to ON (see “Ring
Type” on Page 37).
DISCHARGING BATTERIES
Rechargeable batteries last longer and perform
better if occasionally allowed to fully discharge.
You can do this by leaving the phone on until the
phone automatically turns off or you can use the
battery discharge feature of any approved accessory available for your phone.
Do not try to discharge the battery by any other
means.

phone in a building, try moving closer to
a window.
If NO SVC appears, the phone is outside the cellular service area. This means you cannot make or
receive calls until you move the phone back inside
the cellular service area.

Notes:
• The emergency number programmed into your
phone might not be valid in all areas. (For example, not all areas have 911 service.) If you
use the phone outside its primary service area,
you might have to manually dial an emergency
number if it is different from the one programmed into your phone.
• One-touch emergency dialing does not operate if keyguard is turned on (see “Turning Keyguard On/Off” on Page 24) or if one-touch
emergency dialing is turned off.
Important: When you make an emergency call,
give your name and cellular phone number, as well
as the location of the incident. Remember that your
phone might be the only means of communication
at the accident scene. Do not end the call until you
are advised you may do so.

CELLULAR SYSTEMS
SELECTING THE ACTIVE
PHONE NUMBER
Every cellular telephone has at least one NAM
(Number Assignment Module), which is used to
store its phone number.
Your phone has two NAMs. If you subscribe to two
cellular services (for example, competitive cellular
systems in your area or cellular systems in different
cities), each of your phone’s NAMs was programmed with a different phone number at the time
of activation.
If your phone is programmed with two different
numbers, follow these steps to select the active
number (the number you want to use to make and
receive calls).
1. Press
, then repeatedly press
or
until the phone displays NAM SELECT.
MENU
2. Press
. The phone displays the active
phone number.
OK
3. Press
or
to select the other number,
then press
to store your selection.
OK
Notes:
• You cannot change the active number during a
call. If you try to, the phone displays CALL IN
PROGRESS and exits the menu.
25
17-1101.fm Page 26 Wednesday, July 21, 1999 9:57 AM
• If you want to receive calls on both numbers at
the same time and you subscribe to call forwarding through your cellular service providers, you can set both numbers on your phone
to forward to the other number if not answered. Contact your cellular service providers for details.
SETTING THE CELLULAR
SYSTEM TYPE
Every cellular market area has two cellular service
providers. One of the providers is designated Provider A and the other Provider B.
Your phone is activated to operate based on your
cellular service provider’s designation (A or B). If
you travel to a city where you do not subscribe to
cellular service, however, you can select any of
these system settings on your phone (based on
how you want the phone to operate in that city).
Notes:
• Using the phone in a city where you do not
subscribe to a cellular service is referred to as
roaming. See “Roaming” on Page 28.
• The designation (A or B) that appears with the
setting is based on the selected phone number’s NAM.
26
17-1101.fm Page 27 Wednesday, July 21, 1999 9:57 AM
• Usually, it is less expensive to use the same
provider type for cellular service when you are
in your home city and when you roam. To do
this, you need to know whether your cellular
service provider is type A or B in your home
city and in each city where you plan to travel.
• It is possible for a cellular service provider to
be (or have agreements with) Provider A in
some cities and Provider B in others.
HOME TYPE (A or B) — Use this setting if you are
roaming and your home city cellular service provider is the same provider type as in the city you have
travelled to (for example, if the company is Provider A in both cities).
NON-HOME TYPE (A or B) — Use this setting if
you are roaming and your home city cellular service provider is the opposite provider type from the
city you have travelled to (for example, the company is Provider A in your home city and Provider B in
the other city).
HOME AREA — Use this setting if you do not want
to roam (you can only use the phone within the
area covered by your home cellular service provider).
BOTH SYSTEMS — Use this setting if you want
the phone to use either Provider A or Provider B.
The phone uses its home type system when possible and the non-home type system when service is
not available on its home type system.

ROAMING
Using the phone in a city where you do not subscribe to a cellular service is referred to as roaming. When you roam, ROAM turns on steadily if the
phone is using its home type system, and flashes
when it is using a cellular system that is different
from your home type system (non-home type system).
In some areas, the cellular system’s computer automatically recognizes roaming telephones. In other areas, you must contact the service provider
before it can recognize your phone. The operator
needs to know your telephone number, your
phone’s ESN (Electronic Serial Number), and how
you plan to pay for your calls. There is normally an
additional charge for roaming calls.
Note: Your phone’s ESN is under the phone’s battery. (However, the roaming cellular service providers can usually automatically determine your
phone’s ESN when you call.)

SID SCREENING
If two different cellular market areas are located
close to one another, a call designated for the A (or
B) carrier in one market can sometimes be placed
using the A (or B) carrier located in the other market area. This can result in unwanted roaming and
higher charges.
At the time of activation, a code is programmed into
your phone that uniquely identifies your cellular
carrier. To prevent unwanted roaming, your
phone’s System IDentity (SID) screening feature
lets you set your phone to look for your designated
carrier’s code signal each time you place a call, so
the calls you place use only your carrier.
Notes:
• If SID screening is set to ON and the phone
cannot locate your designated carrier’s code
signal, only emergency calls to the emergency
number programmed into your phone can go
through. Other calls will not go through, and
the phone will not roam. NO SVC appears
(with NO flashing).
• When SID screening is set to OFF, your phone
automatically roams according to the selected
cellular system type (see “Setting the Cellular
System Type” on Page 26).

SPECIAL PHONE SERVICES
Calling Line ID
If you subscribe to calling line identification service
with your cellular carrier, your phone is preset to
automatically display the caller’s phone number (if
available) each time it receives a call. If you stored
the caller’s phone number with a name in the
phone’s memory (see “Storing a Number and
Name in Memory” on Page 48), that stored name
appears.
Hint: To quickly store the displayed caller’s number into the first empty speed-dial memory, display
the record then hold down
for about 2 seconds
(see “Using Number Quick Store” on Page 51).
OK
Message Waiting
If you subscribe to voice mail service with your cellular carrier, calls you do not answer are sent to
your voice mailbox. A voice mailbox is somewhat
like an answering machine, because you must call
it and enter a password or personal identification
code to listen to your messages. (For information
about using your voice mailbox, contact your cellular carrier.)
31
17-1101.fm Page 32 Wednesday, July 21, 1999 9:57 AM
When your phone is turned on and receives voice
mail notification from your cellular carrier, it displays
to notify you that you have one or more
messages waiting in your mailbox. When you call
your mailbox and listen to your message(s),
disappears.
Hint: If you subscribe to voice mail service, you
can store the number you call to reach your mailbox in your phone’s one-touch dial location (Memory 1) for easy access. See “Storing a Number and
Name in Memory” on Page 48.
Other Services
Your cellular service provider might offer other special options that let you receive or make a second
call or conference two calls together using your
phone’s SEND key.

phone, and might be dangerous.
Here are a few practical rules for accessory operation:
• Keep the accessories out of the reach of children.
• When you disconnect any accessory’s power
cord, pull the plug, not the cord.
• Regularly check all cellular phone equipment
in your vehicle to be sure it is mounted and operating properly.
• Have only qualified personnel install complex
car accessories.

SAFETY INFORMATION
TRAFFIC SAFETY
• Do not use a handheld phone while driving a
vehicle. If using a handheld phone, park the
vehicle before taking or making a call.
• Always secure the phone in its holder; do not
place the phone on the passenger seat or
where it can break loose in a collision or sudden stop.
• Never use a phone alert device that operates
your vehicle’s lights or horn. This is illegal in
most areas.
Remember, always put road safety first!
OPERATING ENVIRONMENT
• Remember to follow all special regulations and
always turn off your phone whenever you are
required to do so, or when it might cause interference or be dangerous.
• Any radio transmitting equipment, including
cellular phones, might interfere with inadequately protected medical devices. Consult a
physician or the manufacturer of the medical
device if you have any questions. Other electronic equipment might also be subject to interference.
• As with other mobile radio transmitting equipment, for your safety, only use your phone in
the normal operating position (held to your ear
with the antenna pointing over your shoulder).
56
17-1101.fm Page 57 Wednesday, July 21, 1999 9:57 AM
• Turn off the phone while getting gasoline (at a
filling station). Observe restrictions on the use
of radio equipment in fuel depots (fuel storage
and distribution areas), chemical plants, or
around blasting operations.
• Do not store or carry flammable liquids, gases,
or explosive materials in the same compartment as a cellular phone or any of its parts or
accessories.
• Only qualified personnel should install or service the phone in a vehicle. Faulty installation
or service might be dangerous and could invalidate the phone’s warranty.
• Electronic fuel injection systems, electronic
anti-lock braking systems, electronic cruise
control systems, and other electronic systems
can malfunction due to the lack of protection
from radio signals. Check regularly that all cellular phone equipment in your vehicle is
mounted and operating properly.
• Turn off your cellular phone when in an aircraft. The use of cellular phones in an aircraft
might be dangerous to the operation of the aircraft, disrupts the cellular networks, and is illegal.
Failure to observe these instructions could lead to
suspension or denial of cellular telephone services,
legal action, or both.

EMERGENCY CALLS
IMPORTANT! This phone, like any cellular phone,
operates using radio signals, cellular, and land line
networks, as well as user-programmed functions.
These factors make it impossible to guarantee connection in all conditions. Therefore, you should
never rely solely upon any cellular phone for essential communications (such as medical emergencies).
Remember, to make or receive any calls, the
phone must be turned on and in a service area with
adequate cellular signal strength.
You might not be able to make emergency calls on
all cellular phone networks or when certain network
services or phone features are set. Check with
your local service providers.
FCC REGULATIONS
A cellular phone might cause TV or radio interference, even when it is operating normally. The FCC
can require you to stop using your cellular phone if
you cannot eliminate the interference. If you require assistance, contact your local RadioShack
store.
This device complies with Parts 15 and 68 of FCC
Rules. Operation is subject to the condition that
this device does not cause harmful interference.

TROUBLESHOOTING
If the power does not come on or stay on:
• Make sure the battery is properly installed and
charged.
• Be sure that the contacts on the battery and
the charging stand are clean. If they are not,
clean them with a soft cloth or pencil eraser.
• The battery charge might be too low for operation. Check the display and listen for the low
battery warning tone.
If the power comes on, but the phone does not
work:
• Make sure that the antenna is properly installed and, if your phone has an extendable
antenna, make sure that the antenna is extended to its full length.
• Check to see if there is an error message on
the display after turning it on. If so, contact
your local RadioShack store for assistance.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Your RadioShack CT-400 Handheld Cellular Phone is an
example of superior design and craftsmanship and
should be treated with care. These suggestions allow you
to enjoy this phone for many years.
• Keep the phone and all its parts and accessories out
of the reach of children.
• Keep the phone dry. Precipitation, humidity and liquids might contain minerals that corrode electronic
circuits.
• Do not use or store the phone in dusty, dirty areas.
Its moving parts can be damaged.
• Do not store the phone in hot areas. Temperature
extremes can shorten the life of electronic devices,
damage batteries, and warp or melt plastic parts.
• Do not store the phone in cold areas. When the
phone warms up (to its normal operating temperature), moisture can form inside the phone, which
could damage the phone’s electronic circuits.
• Do not attempt to open the phone. Non-expert handling of the phone can damage it.
• Do not drop, knock, or shake the phone. Rough handling can break internal circuit boards.
• Do not use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, or
strong detergents to clean the phone. Wipe it with a
soft cloth slightly dampened in a mild soap and water solution.
Modifying or tampering with your phone’s internal components could violate its warranty and void your FCC authorization to use it. If the phone or any of its accessories are
not working properly, take them to your local RadioShack
store for assistance.
