you use tone or pulse (rotary) dialing and lets you switch from
pulse to tone dialing for longdistance, bank-by-phone, or other
special services.
Redial — lets you quickly redial
the last number dialed.
Flash — sends an electronic
switchhook signal for use with
special phone services, such as
Call Waiting.

IMPORTANT CALLER
ID INFORMATION
To use the phone’s Caller ID and
Call Waiting with Caller ID features, you must be in an area
where those services are available and you must subscribe to
those services through your local
phone company.
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
READ THIS BEFORE
INSTALLATION
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.
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.

ˆ Preparation
INSTALLING THE
BATTERIES
Your phone requires three AAA
batteries (not supplied) for power.
For the best performance and
longest life, we recommend RadioShack alkaline batteries.
Cautions:
• Use only fresh batteries of the
required size and recommended type.
• Do not mix old and new batteries or different types of batteries (standard or alkaline).
Follow these steps to install batteries.
1. Use a Phillips screwdriver to
loosen the screw on the battery compartment cover, then
use a flat screwdriver to pry
off the cover.
2. Place the batteries in the
compartment, as indicated by
the polarity symbols (+ and –)
marked inside.
3. Replace the cover.
When you press any of the
phone’s buttons or the phone receives a call,
appears. If
appears or the display is
blank when you press a key or receive a call, or if the phone stops
operating properly, replace the
batteries.
Warning: Dispose of old batteries
promptly and properly. Do not
burn or bury them.
Caution: If you do not plan to use
the phone for a month or more,
remove the batteries. Batteries
can leak chemicals that can destroy electronic parts.
Note: The phone still rings when
you receive a call, even if the battery power is low or you have not
installed batteries. However, you
cannot answer the call without
sufficient battery power.
CONNECTING TO THE
PHONE LINE
Your telephone connects directly
to a modular phone line jack. If
your phone line jack is not a modular jack, you can update the wiring yourself, using jacks and
adapters available from your local
Preparation

RadioShack store. Or, you can let
the telephone company update
the wiring for you.
The USOC number of the jack to
be installed is RJ11C, or RJ11W
for a wall plate jack.
Plug one end of the supplied
short modular cord into the TEL
jack on the top of the phone. Then
plug the other end into the wall
plate jack.
CONNECTING/
ADJUSTING THE
HEADSET
Connect the headset’s plug into
on the bottom of the phone.
Then follow these steps to adjust
the headset.
1. Place the headset on your
head with the earpiece over
either ear.
2. Adjust the headset band until
it rests with almost no pressure on your ear and the top
of your head.
4. Hold the headset in place,
and adjust the microphone
boom until it is about even
with your chin. Experiment
until you find the most comfortable position.
Caution: The microphone boom
swivels on the headset. Do not
bend the microphone boom while
you adjust it.
SETTING THE
DIALING MODE
Set PULSE/TONE on the top of the
phone for the type of service you
have. If you are not sure which
type you have, do this test.
1. Set PULSE/TONE to TONE.
2. Put on the headset and adjust
it as needed.
3. Press TALK and listen for a
dial tone.
4. Press any number other than
0.
3. If the headset is loose, adjust
it inward slightly to tighten it. If
the headset is tight, gently
pull the headset band out to
loosen it.
Note: If your phone system
requires that you dial an
access code (9, for example)
before you dial an outside
number, do not dial the
access code either.
If the dial tone stops, you
have touch-tone service.

ˆ Caller ID Operation
If you subscribe to Caller ID service from your phone company,
the phone company sends information about the call, as well as
the time and date, between the
first and second rings of every call
you receive.
The phone displays this information when it receives a call, and it
stores up to 60 Caller ID records
for later review. It also shows if
caller information is unavailable
or if the name and number were
blocked by the caller (see “Caller
ID Messages” on Page 12).
If you subscribe to Call Waiting
with Caller ID, flashes along
with the Caller ID record for the
new call. If you want to answer
the incoming call, press CALL
BACK/FLASH. To resume the previous phone conversation, press
CALL BACK/FLASH again.

ˆ Troubleshooting
We do not expect you to have any problems with your phone, but if you
do, the following suggestions might help.
Problem
The phone does not work or
works poorly.
Possible Solutions
• The phone line and handset cords might
not be securely connected. Reconnect
them.
• Batteries are weak or not installed. Install
or replace the batteries.
Volume drops or you hear
unusual sounds.
Someone has picked up another phone on the
same line. Hang up the other phone.
No dial tone.
The phone line and handset cords might not
be securely connected. Reconnect them.
You have an incoming call,
but do not receive any Caller
ID information.
• Let the phone ring twice before you
answer, so it has time to record the Caller
ID information.
• The phone line and handset cords might
not be securely connected. Reconnect
them.
• Check with your phone company to confirm that your Caller ID service is active.
Display is blank.
Batteries are weak or not installed. Install or
replace the batteries.
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 the phone to your local RadioShack store
for assistance.

Troubleshooting
ˆ Care
To enjoy your Handsfree Phone
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.
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 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 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.
Care
15
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 that you unplug your
phone when storms approach to reduce the possibility of damage.
