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 bottom 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 (or three in rural areas), your telephones might not ring. If ringer
operation is impaired, remove a device from
the line.
Your phone complies with Part 68 of FCC
Rules. You must, upon request, provide the
FCC registration number and the REN to
your telephone company. Both numbers are
on the bottom of your phone.
Note: You must not connect your phone to:
• coin-operated systems
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:
• party-line systems
• most electronic key telephone systems

Important Information
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. For this reason, the phone
should not be your only telephone. To be
safe, you should also have a phone that
does not require AC power to operate
(not a cordless phone) so you can still
make and receive calls if there is an AC
power failure.
• Some cordless phones operate at frequencies that might cause interference
to nearby TVs and VCRs. To minimize
or prevent such interference, the base of
the cordless phone should not be placed
near or on top of a TV or VCR.
• Your cordless phone operates on standard radio frequencies, as allocated by
the FCC. Even though your phone's
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
possible lack of privacy can occur with
any cordless phone.
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.
dures 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. 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.
FCC STATEMENT
The phone complies with the limits for a
Class B digital device as specified in Part 15
of FCC Rules. These limits provide reasonable protection against radio and TV interference in a residential area. However, your
equipment might cause TV or radio interference even when it is operating properly. To
eliminate interference, you can try one or
more of the following corrective measures:
• Reorient or
antenna.
relocate
the
receiving
• Increase the distance between the
equipment and the radio or TV.
• Use outlets on different electrical circuits
for the equipment and the radio or TV.
Consult your local RadioShack store if the
problem still exists.
Also, the phone company can make changes
to its lines, equipment, operations, or proce-

CONNECTING, CHARGING,
AND REPLACING THE
BATTERY PACK
The phone comes with a rechargeable nickel-cadmium (Ni-Cd) battery pack in the handset. Before using your phone, you must
connect the battery pack, then charge it for
about 24 hours.
1. Press down and slide off the battery
pack compartment cover.
2. Lift the battery pack out of the compartment.
3. Plug the battery pack's connector into
the socket in the compartment, (the connector fits only one way), replace the
battery pack, and replace the cover.
To charge the battery pack, place the handset either faceup or facedown on the base.
The CHARGE/IN USE indicator on the base
lights and JejWb0&& appears.
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 properly connected.
Recharge the battery pack when Bemý8Wjj[ho
flashes.
Notes:
• When you first use the phone after
charging or recharging the battery pack,
the phone might not work and you might
hear a beep when you press TALK.
Return the handset to the base for about
5 seconds to reset the security accessprotection code.
• If the handset or the base loses power,
the security access-protection code
might be lost. To reset the code, return
the handset to the base for about 5 seconds.
• Using a pencil eraser, clean the charging contacts on the handset and base
about once a month.
• If the battery pack becomes weak during
a call, the handset beeps every 3 seconds and Bemý8Wjj[ho flashes. When this
happens, you cannot make a call until
you recharge the battery pack.
• About once a month, fully discharge the
battery by keeping the handset off the
base until Bemý 8Wjj[ho flashes. Otherwise, the battery pack loses its ability to
fully recharge.
• 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.)
• If you are not going to use your phone
for an extended period of time, disconnect the battery pack. This increases the
battery pack's usable life.
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 3.6-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 and charge it for about
24 hours.
Note: To avoid losing information stored in
memory, replace the battery within 2 minutes.
Warning: Dispose of the old battery pack
promptly and properly. Do not burn or bury it
(see “Battery Safety Instructions” on Page 5
for additional information on proper battery
handling).

Important: The EPA certified
RBRC® Battery Recycling Seal
on the nickel-cadmium (Ni-Cd)
battery indicates RadioShack
is voluntarily participating in an
industry program to collect and recycle these
batteries at the end of their useful life, when
taken out of service in the United States or
Canada. The RBRC program provides a
convenient alternative to placing used Ni-Cd
batteries into the trash or the municipal
waste stream, which may be illegal in your
area. Please call 1-800-THE-SHACK (1800-843-7422) for information on Ni-Cd battery recycling and disposal bans/restrictions
