ET-1118
900 MHz Digital Spread Spectrum Cordless
Telephone with Caller ID and Call Waiting ID
FEATURES
Your RadioShack ET-1118 900 MHz
Digital Spread Spectrum Cordless Telephone uses the most advanced cordless
telephone technology to give you superior audio quality and extended range.
The ET-1118’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. And, if you subscribe to Call Waiting with Caller ID, the
ET-1118 shows you the incoming caller
information, even when you are already
on the phone.
Your ET-1118 has these features:
900 MHz Operation — provides longer
range and less interference than many
other cordless phones.
Spread Spectrum Technology —
spreads the signal across several frequencies, providing additional security
for your phone conversations.
Caller ID Memory — stores up to 50
Caller ID records.
Headset Jack — lets you connect an
optional headset (available from your local RadioShack store) for hands-free
convenience.
Dual Keypads — a full set of keys on
both the handset and base let you use
either keypad to operate the phone.
3-Line Liquid Crystal Display — lets
you view an entire Caller ID record on
one screen.
Two-Way Intercom/Paging System —
lets you send a signal from the base to
the handset, or from the handset to the
base, to page someone or locate the
handset when it is away from the base.
If someone answers, you can use the
ET-1118 as an intercom.
20-Number Memory Dialing — lets you
store up to 20 numbers (10 each in the
handset and base) in memory for easy
dialing.
Volume Control — lets you adjust the
volume you hear through the handset.
Adjustable Ringers — you can set different volumes for the handset and base
ringers.
Ample Talk and Standby Time — the
supplied battery (when fully charged)
provides about 4 hours of talk time or 7
days of standby time.
20 Channels — automatically selects a
clear channel when you make or answer
a call.
Speakerphone — lets you make or answer calls without using the handset.

Security Access-Protection Code —
automatically prevents other cordless
phone users from using your phone line
while the handset is off the base.
Redial — lets you quickly redial the last
number dialed.
Flash — sends an electronic switchhook signal for use with special phone
services, such as Call Waiting.
Tone/Pulse Dialing — lets you use either type of service, and you can easily
switch from pulse to tone dialing for
long-distance, bank-by-phone, or other
special services.
Auto Talk — lets you set the handset so
you can answer a call by simply lifting
the handset from the base or by pressing any key 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.
This telephone is UL listed and has
been tested and found to comply with all
applicable FCC standards.
IMPORTANT CALLER ID

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 ET-1118. 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 ET-1118
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 so you can use the handset.
READ THIS BEFORE
INSTALLATION
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, your
phones might not ring. In rural areas, a
total REN of three might impair ringer
operation. If ringer operation is impaired,
remove a device from the line.
4
FCC STATEMENT
This telephone 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.
Note: You must not connect your phone
to any of the following:
• coin-operated systems
• party-line systems
• most electronic key phone systems
This 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 relocate the receiving
antenna.
• 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.

INSTALLATION
MOUNTING THE PHONE
You can place the ET-1118’s base on a
desk or table, mount it on a standard
wall plate, or mount it 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
Notes:
• Your telephone connects directly to
a modular telephone line jack. If
your phone line jack is not a modular jack, you can update the wiring
yourself, using jacks and adapters
available at your local RadioShack
store. Or, you can let the phone
company update the wiring for you.
• The USOC number of the jack to be
installed is RJ11C (RJ11W for a wall
plate).
On a Desk Top
• 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.
1. Plug one end of the supplied long
modular cord into the TEL LINE jack
on the back of the base.
Cautions:
You must use a Class 2
power source that supplies
9 volts AC and delivers at
least 500 mA. Its center tip must be
set to positive and its plug must fit
the ET-1118's DC IN 9V jack. The
supplied adapter meets these specifications. Using an adapter that
does not meet these specifications
could damage the ET-1118 or the
adapter.
!
2. Plug the modular cord’s other end
into a modular telephone line jack.
3. Insert the supplied AC adapter’s
barrel plug into the DC IN 9V jack on
the back of the base.
• Always connect the AC adapter to
the ET-1118 before you connect it to
AC power. When you finish, disconnect the adapter from AC power before you disconnect it from the ET1118.

CONNECTING AND
CHARGING THE BATTERY
PACK
The ET-1118 comes with a rechargeable nickel-cadmium battery pack in the
handset but not connected. Before using
your phone, you must connect the battery pack and then charge it for about 24
hours.
1. Press down and slide off the battery
pack compartment cover as shown.
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),
then replace the battery pack.
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 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 an error tone when
you press TALK. If this happens,
return the handset to the base for
about 5 seconds. This resets the
security access-protection code.
• If the base loses power for 60 minutes while the handset is away from
it or the handset’s battery pack is
completely discharged, 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 the base about once a month.
4. Replace the cover.
To charge the battery pack, place the
handset on the base either faceup or
facedown. The CHARGE indicator on
the base lights and Total:00 appears
on the handset display.
10
• If the battery pack becomes weak
during a call, the handset beeps
every 3 seconds and Low Battery flashes. If 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 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 for about a year. When it loses
its ability to fully recharge, order a
replacement battery pack from your
local RadioShack store (see
“Replacing the Battery Pack” on
Page 28).

CALLER ID OPERATION
If you subscribe to Caller ID service from
your phone company, the phone company sends information about the call, as
well as the time and date, between the
first and second rings of every call you
receive.
The ET-1118 displays this information
when it receives a call, and it stores up
to 50 Caller ID records for later review. It
also shows if caller information is unavailable or if the name and number
were blocked by the caller (see “Caller
ID Messages” on Page 23).

TROUBLESHOOTING
We do not expect you to have any problems with your phone, but if you do, the following suggestions might help.
Problem
The phone does not work or works poorly.
Suggestion
Be sure the base’s phone line cord and AC
adapter are correctly and securely connected.
Be sure the battery pack in the handset is
connected and charged.
Return the handset to the base for a few
seconds to reset the security access-protection code.
The display flashes slowly when the handset is faceup on the base.
Be sure the battery pack in the handset is
properly connected.
The handset stops working or works poorly
during a call.
Move the handset closer to the base.
Lift the base’s antenna to a fully vertical
position.
Be sure the handset’s battery pack is
charged. (If the battery pack power is too
low, it does not have enough power to light
Low Battery on the display.)
Low volume or unusual sounds.
Someone has picked up another phone on
the same line. Hang up the other phone.
Severe noise interference.
Keep the handset away from computers,
remote control toys, wireless microphones,
alarm systems, intercoms, room monitors,
fluorescent lights, and electrical appliances.
Move to another location or turn off the
source of interference.
Hang up and redial the number.
The phone cannot be operated 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 fully vertical
position.
Be sure neither the handset’s nor base’s
antenna is touching a metal surface.
Recharge the battery pack.
25
Problem
Suggestion
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 properly connected.
Be sure the handset is properly seated on
the base.
Replace the battery pack (see “Replacing
the Battery Pack” on Page 28).
The handset does not ring or receive a
page.
Lift the base’s antenna to a fully vertical
position.
Move the handset closer to the base.
Move the base away from other electrical
devices.
Recharge the battery pack.
You have an incoming call, but do not
receive any Caller ID information.
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.
If you still have problems, disconnect the ET-1118. 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 ET-1118 to your local RadioShack store for assistance.
26
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Your RadioShack ET-1118 900 MHz Digital Spread Spectrum Cordless Telephone
is an example of superior design and craftsmanship. The following suggestions will
help you care for your ET-1118 so you can enjoy it for years.
Keep the ET-1118 dry. If it gets wet, wipe it dry immediately. Liquids
might contain minerals that can corrode the electronic circuits.
Use and store the ET-1118 only in normal temperature environments.
Temperature extremes can shorten the life of electronic devices, damage batteries, and distort or melt plastic parts.
Keep the ET-1118 away from dust and dirt, which can cause premature
wear of parts.
Handle the ET-1118 gently and carefully. Dropping it can damage circuit
boards and cases and can cause the ET-1118 to work improperly.
Use only fresh batteries of the required size and recommended type.
Batteries can leak chemicals that damage your ET-1118’s electronic
parts.
Wipe the ET-1118 with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it looking
new. Do not use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, or strong detergents to clean the ET-1118.
Modifying or tampering with the ET-1118’s internal components can cause a malfunction and might invalidate its warranty and void your FCC authorization to operate it. If your ET-1118 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 ET-1118 until you have resolved the problem.
27
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.
Note: To avoid losing redial memory
and the security code, begin charging
the new battery pack within 2 minutes.
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, place the battery pack into
the compartment.
4. Replace the cover.
Cautions:
• You must use a replacement battery
pack of the same size and type.
• Do not dispose of the battery pack in
a fire because it might explode.
28
• Do not open or mutilate the battery
pack.
• Be careful not to short the battery
pack by touching the connector’s
pins with conducting materials, such
as rings, bracelets, and keys. The
battery pack or conductor might
overheat and burn.
If you have trouble replacing the battery
pack, take the phone to your local RadioShack store for assistance.
Important: This telephone can use nickel
cadmium rechargeable
batteries. At the end of a
nickel cadmium battery's useful life, it must
be recycled or disposed
of properly. Contact your local, county,
or state hazardous waste management
authorities for information on recycling
or disposal programs in your area or call
1-800-843-7422. Some options that
might be available are: municipal curbside collection, drop-off boxes at retailers such as your local RadioShack
store, recycling collection centers, and
mail-back programs.
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:
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.
• 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
