ˆ Features
Your RadioShack 900 MHz Spread Spectrum Cordless Speakerphone Digital Answering System uses advanced technology
to give you superior audio quality and extended range.
The answering system’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 and
Caller ID, the answering system can show
you the incoming caller information, even
when you are already talking on the phone.
The answering system stores up to 18 minutes of messages on a computer chip and
records each message’s day and time. This
gives you advanced capabilities over tapebased answering machines:
• You can delete individual messages and
save the rest.
3-Line Liquid Crystal Display — lets you
view an entire Caller ID record on one
screen.
20 Number Memory Dialing — lets you
store 20 numbers in memory for easy dialing.
Headset Jack — for optional hands-free use
with a headset (available at your local RadioShack store).
Page — lets you send a paging signal from
the base to the handset to page someone or
locate the handset if you misplace it.
20 Channels — automatically selects a clear
channel when you make or answer a call.
You can also manually change channels during a call.
Security Access-Protection Code — helps
prevent other cordless phone users from using your phone line while the handset is off
the base.
• There are no tapes to bother with and no
tape mechanisms to wear out.
Ringer Volume Control — lets you select
from four ringer tone/volume settings on the
handset.
The remote operation feature lets you operate your answering system from a touch-tone
phone (or from a rotary phone with a pocket
tone dialer).
Volume Controls — let you adjust the volume you hear through the handset.
TELEPHONE 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.
4
Long Battery Life — the supplied battery
pack (when fully charged) provides about 6
hours of talk time or 7 days of standby time.
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.
3-Number Redial — lets you quickly redial
any of the last three numbers dialed.
Auto Talk — you can set the phone so you
can answer a call simply by lifting the handset from the base.
Features
43-749.fm Page 5 Tuesday, September 5, 2000 11:24 AM
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.
Toll-Saver — lets you avoid unnecessary
charges when you call by long distance to
check your messages.
Hearing-Aid Compatibility — lets you use
your phone with hearing aids that have a T
(telephone) switch.
Digital Volume Control — lets you precisely
adjust the speakerphone and message playback.

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 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 (three in rural areas), your phones might not ring. If ringer operation is impaired, remove a device from the
line.
Features

43-749.fm Page 6 Tuesday, September 5, 2000 11:24 AM
FCC STATEMENT
Your answering system 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.
You must not connect your phone to any of
the following:
• coin-operated systems
• party-line systems
• most electronic key phone systems
Note: Your telephone operates on standard
radio frequencies, as allocated by the FCC.
Even though the security 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.

MOUNTING THE PHONE
Cautions:
You must use a 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.
You can place the answering system’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
• 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
• away from other cordless phones
Notes:
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.

• 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
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.

• If the battery pack becomes weak during
a call, the handset beeps every 3 seconds and Low Battery flashes on the
display. When this happens, you cannot
make another call on the phone until you
recharge the battery pack.
3. Put the battery pack in the compartment,
then 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 Low Battery flashes on the display.
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 connected.
Notes:
• When you first use the phone after
charging or recharging the battery pack,
the phone might not work and you might
hear a five-beep error signal. If this happens, return the handset to the base for
about 5 seconds. This resets the security access-protection code.
• Using a pencil eraser, clean the charging contacts on the handset and the
base about once a month.
• 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.)
• About once a month, fully discharge the
battery pack by keeping the handset off
the base until Low Battery flashes
on the display. Otherwise, the battery
pack loses its ability to fully recharge.
• If the battery pack is completely discharged or the base loses power 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.
• The supplied battery pack should last
about a year. When it loses its ability to
fully recharge, order a replacement battery pack through your local RadioShack
store (see “Replacing the Battery Pack”
on Page 30).

play every few seconds.
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 answering system. 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 phone to your local RadioShack store for assistance.

ˆ Care and Maintenance
Your RadioShack 900 MHz Spread Spectrum Cordless Speakerphone Digital Answering
System is an example of superior design and craftsmanship. The following suggestions will
help you care for your answering system so you can enjoy it for years.
Keep the answering system dry. If it gets wet, wipe it dry immediately. Liquids
might contain minerals that can corrode the electronic circuits.
Use and store the answering system only in normal temperature environments.
Temperature extremes can shorten the life of electronic devices, damage batteries, and distort or melt plastic parts.
Keep the answering system away from dust and dirt, which can cause premature wear of parts.
Handle the answering system gently and carefully. Dropping it can damage circuit boards and cases and can cause the answering system to work improperly.
Use only fresh batteries of the required size and recommended type. Batteries
can leak chemicals that damage your answering system’s electronic parts.
Wipe the answering system with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it looking
new. Do not use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, or strong detergents to
clean the answering system.
Modifying or tampering with the answering system’s internal components can cause a malfunction and might invalidate its warranty and void your FCC authorization to operate it. If
your answering system 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 answering system until you have resolved the problem.

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 (see
“Connecting and Charging the Battery Pack”
on Page 10).
Note: To avoid losing memory numbers, install and begin charging the new battery
pack within 2 minute.
• Be careful not to short the battery by
touching the connector’s pins with conducting materials, such as rings, bracelets, and keys. The battery pack or
conductor might overheat and burn.
Important: This product 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.
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.
If you have trouble replacing the battery, take
the answering system to your local RadioShack store for assistance.
Cautions:
• You must use a replacement battery of
the same size and type.
• Do not dispose of the battery in a fire
because it might explode.
• Do not open or mutilate the battery.

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 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.
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
• 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.
