INTRODUCTION
Cordless phones require AC power to
operate. When the power is off, you cannot
make or receive calls by using your phone.
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. !
Introduction
Thank you for purchasing a RadioShack 2.4
GHz Cordless Telephone. Your phone uses
advanced technology to give you superior
audio quality and extended range. The
phone’s 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. If you
subscribe to Call Waiting with Caller ID, the
phone shows you the incoming caller
information, even when you are already
talking on the phone.
! IMPORTANT !
•
When AC power is lost,
the phone loses the
digital security code
connection between the
base and the handset.
When power is restored,
put the handset on the
base briefly to restore
this connection so you
can use the handset.
•
Your phone operates on
standard radio
frequencies as allocated
by the FCC.
•
It is possible for other
radio units operating
nearby on similar
frequencies to
unintentionally intercept
your conversation or
cause interference. This
possible lack of privacy
can occur with any
cordless phone.
3
As an ENERGYSTAR Partner,
RadioShack Corporation has
determined that this product
meets the ENERGYSTAR guidelines
for energy efficiency.
IMPORTANT
INFORMATION
This telephone has been tested and found
to comply with all applicable UL and FCC
standards.
Important Information
FCC STATEMENT
Ô NOTE Ô
You must not connect your
phone to:
•
•
4
coin-operated systems
most electronic key
telephone systems
Your telephone compiles with Part 68 of the
FCC Rules.Upon request, you must provide
the phone’s FCC registration number and
REN to your phone company. These
numbers are on the base unit.
Your phone is not intended to be used with
party-line systems. Connection to party line
service is subject to state tariffs. Contact the
state public utility commission, public
service commission, or corporation
commission for information. Ô
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 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
Important Information
ringer operation is impaired, remove a
device from the line.
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 phone. The telephone company
notifies you of these changes in advance, so
you can take the necessary steps to prevent
interruption of your telephone service.
This device complies with part 15 of the
FCC rules. Operation is subject to the
following two conditions: (1) This device
may not cause harmful interference, and (2)
This device must accept any interference
received, including interference that may
cause undesired operation. Privacy of
communications, may not be ensured when
using this phone.
SURGE PROTECTION
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 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.

1. Do not use this product near water, for example, near a bathtub,
wash bowl, kitchen sink, or laundry tub, in a wet basement or near a
swimming pool.
2. Avoid using a telephone (other than a cordless type) during an
electrical storm. There may be a remote risk of electric shock from
lightning.
3. Do not use the telephone to report a gas leak in the vicinity of the

Important Caller ID Information
IMPORTANT CALLER
ID INFORMATION
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.
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

INSTALLATION
Before using your phone, carefully peel the
protective film off the display. The film
protects the handset window during
shipment and is not necessary for use.
SELECTING A LOCATION
You can place the phone’s base on a desk
or table, or mount it on a standard wall plate
or directly on a wall. Select a location that
is:Ô
• near an accessible AC outlet
• near a telephone line jack
• out of the way of normal activities
Installation
• away from electrical machinery,
electrical appliances, metal walls or
filing cabinets, wireless intercoms,
alarms, and room monitors
• away from other cordless phones
Ô NOTES Ô
•
•
8
If your home has
specially wired alarm
equipment connected to
the telephone line, be
sure that installing the
system does not disable
your alarm equipment.
If you have questions
about what will disable
alarm equipment,
contact your telephone
company or a qualified
installer.
The USOC number of
the jack to be installed is
RJ11C (or RJ11W for a
wall plate jack).
The base’s location affects the handset’s
range. If you have a choice of several
locations, try each to see which provides the
best performance.
Your telephone connects directly to a
modular telephone line jack. If your
telephone wiring does not have a modular
jack, you can update the wiring yourself
using jacks and adapters (available at your
local RadioShack store), or have the
telephone company update the wiring for
you. You must use compatible modular
jacks that are compliant with Part 68 of FCC
Rules. Ô
