We have designed your phone to conform to
federal regulations, and you can connect it to
most telephone lines. However, each device
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 bottom of
your phone.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire or
shock hazard, do not expose this product to rain
or moisture.
CAUTION
RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK.
DO NOT OPEN.
!
CAUTION: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF
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.
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 cordless
phone. For this reason, a cordless 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 telephone operates on standard radio
frequencies as allocated by the FCC. Even
though the 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.

ˆ Features
Your RadioShack 900 MHz Digital Spread
Spectrum Cordless Phone uses advanced
technology for superior audio quality and extended range. Caller ID 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 and Caller
ID, the phone can show you the incoming
caller information, even when you are already talking on the phone.
Any-Key Answer — you can set the phone
so you can press any key to answer a call
when the handset is away from the base.
Hearing-Aid Compatibility — lets you use
your phone with hearing aids that have a T
(telephone) switch.
The Telephone Answering Device (TAD)
stores up to 20 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:
The phone’s features include:
• You can delete individual messages and
save the rest.
Spread Spectrum Technology — spreads
the signal across several frequencies, providing additional security for your phone conversations.
• There are no tapes to bother with and no
tape mechanisms to wear out.
Caller ID/Call Waiting Deluxe — gives you
several options for handling waiting callers
(you must subscribe to the Call Waiting Options Service through your phone company
to use this feature).
The remote operation feature lets you operate your TAD from a touch-tone phone or
from a rotary phone with a pocket tone dialer.
20 Number Memory Dialing — lets you
store up to 20 numbers in memory for easy
dialing.
Phone Pick-Up Detection — stops recording when you pick up any phone on the same
line as the TAD, and resets to answer the
next call.
Headset Jack — for optional hands-free use
with a headset (available at your local
RadioShack store).
The TAD’s features include:
Voice-Prompted Menu Setting — lets you
set the TAD’s various functions through the
voice guidance.
Security Access-Protection Code — helps
prevent other cordless phone users from using your phone line while the handset is off
the base.
Programmable Security Code — you can
set a two-digit security code to secure remote operation.
3-Number Redial — lets you quickly redial
any of the last three numbers dialed.
3 Mail Boxes — you can select a mail box
so you can record your message from remote location.
Auto Talk — you can set the phone so you
can answer a call simply by lifting the handset from the base.

ˆ Installation
CHOOSING 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. Choose a location that is:
• near an AC outlet
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.
Note: The USOC number of the jack to be
installed is RJ11C (or RJ11W for a wall plate
jack).
• near a modular telephone line jack
• out of the way of normal activities
MOUNTING THE SYSTEM
• away from electrical machinery, electrical appliances, metal walls or filing cabinets, wireless intercoms, alarms, and
room monitors
• away from other cordless phones
The base’s location affects the phone’s
range. If you have a choice of several locations, try each to see which provides the best
performance.
Cautions:
You must use a Class 2 power
source that supplies 9V DC
and delivers at least 350 mA.
Its center tip must be set to positive and
its plug must fit the phone’s DC IN 9V
jack. The supplied adapter meets these
specifications. Using an adapter that
does not meet these specifications
could damage the phone or the adapter.
!
• Always connect the AC adapter to the
phone before you connect it to AC
power. When you finish, disconnect the
adapter from AC power before you disconnect it from the phone.
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
On a Desk
1. Plug one end of the supplied long modular cord into the base’s TEL LINE jack.
2. Insert the supplied AC adapter’s barrel
plug into the base’s DC IN 9V jack.
3. Route the adapter’s cord through the
strain relief slot on the base.
4. Plug the modular cord’s other end into
the phone jack.
5. Plug the adapter into a standard AC outlet.
6. Lift the base’s antenna to a vertical position.
On a Wall Plate
1. Plug one end of the supplied short modular cord into the base’s TEL LINE jack.
2. Insert the supplied AC adapter’s barrel
plug into the base’s DC IN 9V jack.
3. Route the AC adapter and modular
cords through the grooves on the base.
4. Plug the modular cord’s other end into
the wall plate jack, then align the base’s

keyhole slots with the wall plate studs
and slide the base down to secure it.
6. Plug the modular cord’s other end into
the phone jack.
7. Plug the adapter into a standard AC outlet.
8. Lift the base’s antenna to a vertical position.
5. Plug the adapter into a standard AC outlet.
6. Lift the base’s antenna to a vertical position.
On a Wall
To mount the TAD directly on a wall, you
need two screws of at least 13/8 inch long
(not supplied) with heads that fit into the keyhole slots on the bottom of the base.
1. Drill two holes 315/16 inches (100 mm)
apart. Then thread a screw into each
hole, letting the heads extend about 1/8
inch (3 mm) from the wall.
2. Plug one end of the supplied long modular cord into the base’s TEL LINE jack.
3. Insert the supplied AC adapter’s barrel
plug into the base’s DC IN 9V jack.
4. Route the adapter cable and modular
cords through the grooves on the base.
5. Align the base’s keyhole slots with the
mounting screws and slide the base
down to secure it.
CONNECTING, CHARGING,
AND REPLACING THE
BATTERY PACK
The phone comes with a rechargeable
nickel-cadmium 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.
Note: 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 on the display.
Notes:
• When you first use the phone after
charging or recharging the battery pack,
the phone might not work and you might
10
Installation
hear a five-beep error signal. Return the
handset to the base for about 5 seconds
to reset the security access-protection
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 memory numbers, install and begin charging the new battery
pack 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 4
for additional information on proper battery
handling).
If you have trouble replacing the battery, take
the phone to your local RadioShack store for
assistance.
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 (1-800-8437422) for information on Ni-Cd battery recycling and disposal bans/restrictions in your
area. RadioShack’s involvement in this program is part of the company’s commitment to
preserving our environment and conserving
our natural resources.

Answering System Operation
message (it does not go back into the old
message group).
Note: You cannot remotely operate the TAD
using its handset or another telephone on
the same line as the TAD.
ADJUSTING THE TAD’S
VOLUME
Setting the Security Code
To adjust the speaker’s volume, repeatedly
press VOL 8 or 9 on the base. The volume
setting from & (lowest) to / (highest) appears
in the message counter window.
The TAD’s two-digit remote operation security code prevents unauthorized remote access to your messages. The code is preset
to 80.
DELETING MESSAGES
Follow these steps to change the code to any
number from 00 to 99.
To delete the current message while it is
playing, press DELETE. The TAD beeps.
To delete all messages at once, while messages are not playing, hold down DELETE on
the base. The TAD announces “Please select mail box.” Press the desired mail box
button. The TAD announces “Deleted” and
all the messages in that mail box are deleted.
Note: You cannot delete new (unplayed)
messages. If you try to delete all messages
at once while you still have new messages in
that mail box, the TAD announces “Please
play back all messages” and does not delete
any messages.
REMOTE OPERATION
While you are away from your home or office, you can use a touch-tone phone, or a
pulse (rotary) phone with a pocket tone dialer
(available through your local RadioShack
store), to enter your security code and do
any of the following:
• Set the TAD to answer or not answer
calls.
• Listen to your messages.
• Record a new outgoing message.
• Record a memo.
• Erase messages.
Note: If you press SPEAKER or STOP while
changing the code, or wait more than 20 seconds between key presses, the TAD exits.
Start again at Step 1.
1. Press MENU three times. The TAD
announces “Security code,” followed by
the currently set code. The display also
shows the code.
2. Press SET/RING.
3. Repeatedly press or hold down SKIP or
REPEAT to change the number.
4. Press SET/RING to store the setting. The
TAD announces the newly set code.
5. Press STOP.
To check your code at any time, press MENU
three times. The code appears in the message counter window, and the TAD announces it.
Using the Toll-Saver
If the ring time is set to j+ (toll-saver) (see
“Setting the Number of Rings” on Page 23),
the TAD answers after two rings if you have
new messages (ones you have not listened
to). If there are no new messages, the TAD
answers after four rings so you can hang up
before the TAD answers and avoid unnecessary long-distance charges.

Using Remote Commands
Follow these steps to operate the TAD from
a remote location.
Note: If you wait more than 15 seconds between key presses, the TAD sounds a long
beep and hangs up.
1. Dial your phone number and wait for the
TAD to answer. If the TAD is not set to
answer calls, it will answer after about
10 rings and sound a series of beeps.
2. When the outgoing message begins (or
the TAD sounds a series of beeps),
press #, then enter your security code

announces the number of new and old
messages for each mail box, then “To
play incoming message, press pound
two. For help, press pound zero.”
Note: The TAD beeps about every 2
seconds, prompting you to enter remote
commands. This is the command
prompt.
If the TAD does not respond, try entering
your code again. If you enter an incorrect code three times, the TAD beeps
and hangs up.
Notes:
• When the TAD is in remote operation, it
stops all answering functions and the
display on the base shows h9. The TAD
resumes answering functions when it is
no longer in remote command if you
have not turned it off.
• The remote operation stops when someone picks up the handset or any phone
on the same phone line.

ˆ Troubleshooting
We do not expect you to have any problems with your phone or answering system, but if you
do, these suggestions might help.
Problem
Low volume or unusual sounds.
Severe noise interference.
Suggestion
Someone has picked up another phone on the same line.
Hang up the other phone.
Press DELETE/CH to change the channel.
Keep the handset away from computers, remote control
toys, wireless microphones, alarm systems, intercoms,
room monitors, fluorescent lights, and electrical appliances.
Move the handset to another location or turn off the source
of interference.
The handset does not ring or receive a
page.
Move the handset closer to the base.
Lift the base’s antenna to a vertical position.
Be sure the battery pack is charged. (If the battery power is
too low, it does not have enough power to light the display.)
Move the base away from other electrical devices and
sources of noise.
The handset stops working or works
poorly during a call.
Move the handset closer to the base.
Lift the base’s antenna to a vertical position.
Be sure the battery pack is charged. (If the battery power is
too low, it does not have enough power to light the display.)
If the base loses power while the handset is away, the security access-protection code might change. Restore power to
the base, then place the handset back on the base. The
CHARGE/IN USE indicator lights, indicating that the code is
set again.
Check the charging contacts on the handset and base. If
they are dirty, clean them with a pencil eraser.
The phone does not operate at a useful
distance from the base because the signal becomes weak or noisy (handset’s
range has decreased).
Lift the base’s antenna to a vertical position.
The phone does not work or works poorly.
Be sure the base’s phone line cord and AC adapter are correctly and securely connected, and the battery pack is
charged.
Bemý8Wjj[ho flashes every few seconds.
Be sure the battery pack is correctly connected.
Return the handset to the cradle, and recharge the battery
pack. Replace the battery pack if necessary (see “Connecting, Charging, and Replacing the Battery Pack” on
Page 10).
Return the handset to the base to recharge the battery
pack.

Troubleshooting
Problem
You have an incoming call, but do not
receive any Caller ID information.
Suggestion
Let the phone ring twice before you answer so the system
has time to record the Caller ID information.
Check that the system is correctly and securely connected.
Call your phone company to verify that your Caller ID service is active.
The handset battery pack does not
charge.
Check the charging contacts on the handset and base. If
they are dirty, clean them with a pencil eraser.
Be sure the battery pack is connected correctly.
Replace the battery pack.
The TAD does not answer calls.
Make sure the TAD is turned on.
Make sure the AC adapter is properly connected.
Check all phone line connections.
The TAD does not record callers’ messages.
The recording time is set to announcement only. Set it to 1
or 4.
Delete messages if memory is full.
If you still have problems, disconnect the TAD. 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 your system to
your local RadioShack store for assistance.
CARE
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 carefully; do not drop it. Keep the phone
away from dust and dirt, and wipe it 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.
