Important Safety Instructions
ˆ Introduction
Thank you for purchasing our 900 MHz
Cordless Telephone. It provides excellent
clarity and range and integrates Caller ID,
Call Waiting ID, and a digital answering
system into one space-saving device. The
900 MHz band provides less interference,
clearer sound, and greater range than 46/49
MHz cordless telephones.
The digital answering system provides clear
reliable messaging with call screening, day/
time stamp, call counter, remote access and
instant skip or replay messaging.
The Caller ID records each caller’s name (if
available in your area), telephone number,
and the date and time of the call, as provided
by your local phone company to Caller ID
service subscribers.
IMPORTANT
Cordless phones such as this one require
AC power to operate. When the AC power is
off, you cannot dial out or receive incoming
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 access-protection code connection
between the base and the handset. When
power is restored, put the handset on the
base briefly to restore this connection.
IMPORTANT CALLER ID
INFORMATION
Where Caller ID is offered, one or more
options are generally available:
• caller’s number only
• caller’s name only
• caller’s name and number
If you subscribe to Call Waiting ID and Caller
ID, the system can show you the incoming
caller information, even when you are
already talking on the phone.
READ THIS BEFORE
INSTALLATION
We have designed your phone to conform to
federal regulations and you can connect it to
most phone 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, or 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 phones might not ring. If ringer
operation is impaired, remove one of the
devices from the line.
The digital answering system stores up to 16
minutes of messages on a computer chip
and records each message’s day and time.
This gives you advanced capabilities over
tape-based answering machines:
• You can delete individual messages and
save the rest.
To use Caller ID and Call Waiting, you must
be in an area where those services are
available and you must subscribe to those
services through your local phone company.
• There are no tapes to bother with and no
tape mechanisms to wear out.

program is part of the company’s
commitment to preserving our environment
and conserving our natural resources.
• If the battery pack is completely
discharged or the base loses power
while the handset is away from it, place
the handset on the base to reset the
security access-protection code. If it was
the handset that lost power, recharge
the battery pack.
SETTING THE DIALING
MODE
The supplied battery pack should last 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 3.6volt, 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 24 hours.
Warning: Dispose of the old battery pack
promptly and properly. Do not burn or bury it
(see “Battery Safety Instructions” on Page 4
for additional information on proper battery
handling).
If you have trouble replacing the battery
pack, take the phone to your local
RadioShack for assistance.

Troubleshooting
Problem
The handset stops working or works
poorly during a call.
Suggestion
Move the handset closer to the base.
Lift the base’s antenna to a vertical position.
Be sure the battery pack is charged. (If the battery power is too
low, it does not have enough power to light the display.)
If the base loses power while the handset is away, the security
access-protection code might change. Restore power to the
base, then place the handset back on the base. The CHARGE/
IN USE indicator lights, indicating that the code is set again.
Check the charging contacts on the handset and base. If they
are dirty, clean them with a pencil eraser.
You have an incoming call, but do not
receive any Caller ID information.
Let the phone ring twice before you answer so the system has
time to record the Caller ID information.
Check that the system is correctly and securely connected.
Check with your phone company to verify that your Caller ID
service is active.
The system does not answer calls.
Make sure the system is turned on.
Make sure the AC adapter is properly connected.
Check all phone line connections.
The system does not record the
callerss messages
Rec Time (recording time) is set to ANN (announce only). Set
it to 1 or 4.
Delete messages if memory id full.
Low Battery flashes every few
seconds
Be sure the battery pack is correctly connected.
Return the handset to the base to recharge battery pack.
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.

CARE
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 carefully; do not drop it. Keep the
phone away from dust and dirt, and wipe it
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.
FCC STATEMENT
Your telephone complies with Part 68 of the
FCC Rules. Upon request, you must provide
the phone’s FCC registration number and
REN to your telephone company. These
numbers are on the bottom of the base.
Note: You must not connect your telephone
to:
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.
Your phone might cause TV or radio
interference even when it is operating
properly. To determine whether your phone
is causing the interference, turn off your
phone. If the interference goes away, your
phone is causing it. Try to eliminate the
interference by:
• moving your phone away from the
receiver
• connecting your phone to an AC outlet
that is on a different electrical circuit
from the receiver
• contacting your local RadioShack store
for help
If you cannot eliminate the interference, the
FCC requires that you stop using your
phone.
Some cordless telephones operate on
frequencies that might cause interference to
nearby TVs and VCRs. To minimize or
prevent such interference, the base of the
cordless telephone should not be placed
near or on top of a TV or VCR.
• coin-operated systems
• party-line systems
• most electronic key phone systems
THE FCC WANTS YOU TO
KNOW
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
26
notifies you as soon as possible and advises
you of your right to file a complaint with the
FCC.
LIGHTNING
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
Troubleshooting
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 that you
unplug your phone when storms approach to
reduce the possibility of damage.
