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.
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.
IMPORTANT SAFETY
INSTRUCTIONS
When using your telephone equipment,
basic safety precautions should always be
followed to reduce the risk of fire, electric
shock and injury to persons, including the
following:
1. Read and understand all instructions.
2. Follow all warnings and instructions

ˆ Introduction
Thank you for purchasing the RadioShack
900 MHz Cordless Telephone. Your system
combines a 900 MHz cordless telephone and
a digital answering system. The 900 MHz
band provides less interference, clearer
sound, and greater range than 46/49 MHz
cordless telephones.
The digital answering system stores up to 16
minutes of messages on a computer chip
and records each message’s day and time.
Advantages over tape-based answering
machines include:
• Ability to delete individual messages
and save the rest.
Ringer Volume Control — select from four
ringer tone/volume settings on the handset.
Volume Control — adjust the sound level
you hear through the handset.
Long Battery Life — the supplied battery
pack (when fully charged) provides about 7
hours of talk time or 14 days of standby time.
Security Access-Protection Code — helps
prevent other cordless phone users from
using your phone line.
ANSWERING SYSTEM
• No tapes to bother with and no tape
mechanisms to wear out.
Voice-Prompted Menu Setting — set the
answering system’s various functions
through the voice guidance.
• Remote operation from a touch-tone
phone (or from a rotary phone with a
pocket tone dialer).
TELEPHONE
10 Number Memory Dialing — store 10
numbers (3 one-touch and 7 speed-dial) in
memory for easy dialing.
Page — send a paging signal from the base
to the handset to page someone or locate
the handset if you misplace it.
Headset Jack — connect an optional
headset (available at your local RadioShack
store) for hands-free convenience.
40 Channels — automatically selects a clear
channel when you make or answer a call.
6
You can also manually change channels
during a call.
Two Prerecorded Messages — offers the
option of using one of two prerecorded
messages (one that lets callers leave a
message and the other for the
announcement only setting) or recording
your own.
Message Counter — shows the number of
recorded messages.
Programmable Security Code — uses a
two-digit security code for secure remote
operation.
Memo Recording — lets you leave
messages for yourself or others in your
home or office. You can also record your
phone conversation.
Introduction
Phone Pick-Up Detection — stops
recording when you pick up any phone on
the same line as the answering system, and
resets to answer the next call.
Toll-Saver — lets you avoid unnecessary
charges when you call by long distance to
check your messages.

MOUNTING THE PHONE
adapter from AC power before you
disconnect it from the phone.
You can place the phone’s base on a desk or
table, mount it on a standard wall plate, or
directly on a wall. Choose a location that is:
• near an AC outlet
• near a modular telephone line jack
• out of the way of normal activities
• away from electrical machinery,
electrical appliances, metal walls or
filing cabinets, wireless intercoms,
alarms, and room monitors
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.

Installation
3. Put the battery pack in the compartment.
while the handset is away from it, place
the handset on the base to reset the
security access-protection code. If the
handset lost power, recharge the battery
pack.
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.
Recharge the battery pack when the TALK/
BATT indicator on the handset flashes.
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.
Notes:
• When you first use the phone after
charging or recharging the battery pack,
the phone might not work and you might
hear an error signal. If this happens,
return the handset to the base for about
5 seconds to reset the security accessprotection code.
• Using a pencil eraser, clean the
charging contacts on the handset and
the base about once a month.
• If the phone does not work, recharge the
battery pack. (The battery power might
be too low to flash the TALK/BATT
indicator.)
• If the battery pack becomes weak during
a call, the handset beeps. When this
happens, you cannot make a call until
you recharge the battery pack.
• About once a month, fully discharge the
battery pack by keeping the handset off
the base until the TALK/BATT indicator
flashes. Otherwise, the battery pack
loses its ability to fully recharge.
• If the battery pack is completely
discharged or the base loses power
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.

message up to 1 minute (or 4 minutes) long.
At the Announce Only setting, the system
plays the outgoing message but does not let
callers leave a message.
SELECTING THE OUTGOING
MESSAGE
The system 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 system uses this message when
the recording 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.
Please call again.” The system uses this
message when the recording time is set to
Announce Only.
You can also record your own message (see
“Recording/Deleting an Outgoing Message”).
When you record your own outgoing
message, the system uses it for all recording
time settings (1, 4, and Announce Only).

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:
• 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
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. 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.
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
