Your RadioShack TAD-729 900 MHz
Dual Keypad Cordless Speakerphone
Digital Answering System combines a
900 MHz digital cordless telephone unit
and a digital TAD (Telephone Answering
Device).
The 900 MHz band means less interference, clearer sound, and greater range
than 46/49 MHz cordless telephones.
The 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. And, if you subscribe to
Call Waiting with Caller ID, the TAD-729
can show you the incoming caller information, even when you are already on
the phone.
The TAD stores up to 12 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.
• There are no tapes to bother with
and no tape mechanisms to wear
out.

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 device that you connect to
the phone line draws power from the
phone line. We refer to this power draw
as the device’s ringer equivalence number, or REN. The REN is on the bottom
of the base. If you are using 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 a device from the
line.
FCC STATEMENT
Your TAD-729 complies with Part 68 of
FCC Rules. You must, upon request,
provide the FCC registration number
and the REN to your phone company.
These numbers are on the bottom of the
base.
You must not connect your phone to any
of the following:
• coin-operated systems
• party-line systems
• most electronic key phone systems
Note: Your telephone operates on standard radio frequencies, as allocated by
the FCC. Even though the security access-protection code prevents unauthorized use of your phone line, it is
possible for other radio units operating
on similar frequencies within a certain
area to unintentionally intercept your
conversations and/or cause interference. This lack of privacy can occur with
any cordless phone.

wall, you need two screws (not supplied)
with heads that fit into the keyhole slots
on the bottom of the base. Follow the
steps under “On a Wall Plate or Wall” on
Page 9, then apply these additional instructions for placement on a wall.
1. Drill two holes 315/16
inches (100 mm)

CONNECTING AND
CHARGING THE BATTERY
PACK
The TAD-729 comes with a rechargeable nickel-cadmium battery pack installed in the handset, but not

3. Put the battery pack in the compartment.
4. Replace the cover.
To charge the battery pack, simply place
the handset on the base, facing either
up or down. The CHARGE/IN USE indicator on the base lights.
10
Recharge the battery pack when Low
Battery flashes on the display.
Important: Be sure the battery pack is
properly connected before you try to
charge it. The CHARGE/IN USE indicator lights when the handset is on the
base, even if the battery pack is not connected.
Notes:
• When you first use the phone after
charging or recharging the battery
pack, the phone might not work and
you might hear a five-beep error signal. If this happens, return the handset to the base for about 5 seconds.
This resets the security access-protection code.
• Using a pencil eraser, clean the
charging contacts on the handset
and the base about once a month.
• If the battery pack becomes weak
during a call, the handset beeps
every 3 seconds and Low Battery flashes. When this happens,
you cannot make another call on the
phone until you recharge the battery
pack.
• About once a month, fully discharge
the battery pack by keeping the
handset off the base until Low
Battery flashes. Otherwise, the
battery pack loses its ability to fully
recharge.
• 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.
• The supplied battery pack should
last about a year. When it loses its
ability to fully recharge, order a
replacement battery pack through
your local RadioShack store (see
“Replacing the Battery Pack” on
Page 37).
SETTING THE DIALING
MODE
• If the display is blank and the phone
does not work, recharge the battery
pack. (The battery power might be
too low to light the display.)
Set DIAL MODE on the back of the base

RECORDING/DELETING
AN OUTGOING MESSAGE
The TAD has two prerecorded outgoing
messages. One asks the caller to leave
a message: “Hello, no one is available to
take your call. Please leave a message
after the tone.” The TAD uses this message when REC TIME is set to 1 or 4 (see
“Setting the Record Time”). The other is
simply an announcement and does not
let the caller leave a message: “Hello,
no one is available to take your call.”
The TAD uses this message when REC
TIME is set to ANN (announcement

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Your RadioShack RadioShack TAD-729 900 MHz Dual Keypad Cordless Speakerphone Digital Answering System is an example of superior design and craftsmanship. The following suggestions will help you care for your TAD-729 so you can
enjoy it for years.
Keep the TAD-729 dry. If it gets wet, wipe it dry immediately. Liquids
might contain minerals that can corrode the electronic circuits.
Use and store the TAD-729 only in normal temperature environments.
Temperature extremes can shorten the life of electronic devices, damage batteries, and distort or melt plastic parts.
Keep the TAD-729 away from dust and dirt, which can cause premature
wear of parts.
Handle the TAD-729 gently and carefully. Dropping it can damage circuit boards and cases and can cause the TAD-729 to work improperly.
Use only fresh batteries of the required size and recommended type.
Batteries can leak chemicals that damage your TAD-729’s electronic
parts.
Wipe the TAD-729 with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it looking
new. Do not use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, or strong detergents to clean the TAD-729.
Modifying or tampering with the TAD-729’s internal components can cause a malfunction and might invalidate its warranty and void your FCC authorization to operate it. If your TAD-729 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 TAD-729 until you have resolved
the problem.
36
REPLACING THE
BATTERY PACK
If you follow the instructions in “Connecting and Charging the Battery Pack” on
Page 10, the battery pack should last
about one year. If the battery pack does
not hold a charge for more than 2 hours
after an overnight charge, replace it with
a new 3.6-volt, 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 as described below, then charge it for about
24 hours (see “Connecting and Charging the Battery Pack” on Page 10).
Note: To avoid losing memory numbers,
install and begin charging the new battery pack within 1 minute.
1. Press down and slide off the battery
pack compartment cover.
2. Lift the battery pack out of the compartment, then gently pull on the
battery connector to disconnect it.
3. Insert the new battery pack’s connector into the socket in the compartment and place the battery pack
into the compartment.
4. Replace the cover.
Cautions:
• You must use a replacement battery
of the same size and type.
• Do not dispose of the battery in a
fire because it might explode.
• Do not open or mutilate the battery.
• Be careful not to short the battery by
touching the connector’s pins with
conducting materials, such as rings,
bracelets, and keys. The battery
pack or conductor might overheat
and burn.

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.
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
38
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.
LIGHTNING
Your telephone has built-in lightning protection to reduce the risk of damage
from surges in telephone line and power
line current. This lightning protection
meets or exceeds 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
that you unplug your phone during
storms to reduce the possibility of damage.
