FCC STATEMENT
We have designed your telephone to conform to federal regulations, and you can connect it to most telephone 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 (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 phone might not ring. If the ringer operation is impaired, remove one of the devices
from the line.
In the unlikely event your phone causes
problems on the phone line, the telephone
company can disconnect your service. The
phone company tries to notify you in advance. If advance notice is not practical, the
telephone company notifies you as soon as
possible and advises you of your right to file
a complaint with FCC.
Your telephone complies with Part 68 of FCC
Rules, you must, upon request, provide the
FCC registration numbers and the REN to
your telephone company. Both numbers are
shown on the bottom of the telephone.
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC
Rules. Operation is subject to the following
two conditions: (1) this device may not cause
harmful interference, and (2) this device
must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.
Note: You must not connect your telephone
to:
• Coin-operated systems
• Party-line systems
• Most electronic key telephone systems
Lightning
Your telephone has built-in protection circuits
to reduce the risk of damage from surges in
(telephone 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 frequent
electrical storms, we suggest you unplug your
telephone when storms approach to reduce
the possibility of damage.
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).

PREPARATION
1. Insert the mounting bracket’s two smaller
tabs into the matching slots opposite the
keyhole slot on the underside of the
phone’s base. Then press down on the
bracket until its two larger tabs snap into
place.
Selecting a Location
Select a location for your telephone that is:
• Near a telephone jack
2. Plug one end of the supplied short modular cord into the LINE jack at the back of
the base. Route the modular cord through
the strain relief channel.
• Not in the way of normal activities in the

meet these specifications could damage
the telephone or the adapter.
4. Press and lift up the handset holder,
rotate it 180°, then snap it back so it holds
the handset.
• Always connect the AC adapter to the
telephone before you connect it to AC
power. When you finish, disconnect the
adapter from AC power before you disconnect it from the telephone.
To mount the phone directly on a wall, in addition to the preceding steps, you need two
screws (not supplied) with heads that fit into
the keyhole slots on the bottom of the base.
Plug the barrel plug of the supplied adapter
into the DC 9V jack at the back of the telephone. Plug the other end into a nearby AC
outlet.
Drill two holes 315/16 inches (100 mm) apart.
Then thread a screw into each hole, letting the
heads extend about 5/16 inches (8mm) from
the wall.
Setting the Ringer
If you do not want to hear the phone ring, set
RINGER to OFF. You can still make calls with
the ringer off, and you can answer calls if you
hear another phone on the same phone line
ring. The bar-shaped ring indicator flashes
when the phone rings, even when the ringer is
off. If you want to hear the phone ring, set
RINGER to HI or LO.
Substitute the long modular cord for the short
cord mentioned in step 2.
Connecting the Handset
Plug one end of the coiled cord into the modular jack on the handset. Then connect it to the
jack on the left side of the telephone base.
Setting the Dialing Mode
Note: Your local RadioShack store sells a variety of longer coiled handset cords, which are
especially useful when you mount the phone
on a wall.
Set T/P (TONE/PULSE) for the type of service
you have. If you are not sure which type you
have, do this simple test.
Connecting an AC Adapter
1. Set T/P to T. Lift the handset and listen for
a dial tone.
Your telephone operates from telephone line
power. In some areas, however, the telephone might not provide enough power to operate all of your telephone’s features. If the
volume of the speaker is too low, even with
the volume control set to its highest level, or if
the speaker does not work, you need to connect the supplied AC adapter.
2. Press any number except 0. If your phone
requires that you dial an access code (9,
for example) before you dial an outside
number, do not press the access code
number either.
If the dial tone stops, you have touchtone service. Leave the setting to T.
Cautions:
If the dial tone continues, you have pulse
service. Set T/P to P.
You must use a Class 2 power
source that supplies 9V DC and
delivers at least 200 mA. Its
center tip must be set to positive and its
plug must fit the telephone's DC 9V jack.
The supplied adapter meets these specifications. Using an adapter that does not

OPERATION
2. Enter the telephone number, then press
STORE again.
Using the Speakerphone
3. Press the direct memory location (1-3) at
the top of the phone or the desired standard memory location (0-9) using the
standard keypad.
You can use the built-in speakerphone instead of the handset. When you press SPEAKERPHONE, the indicator lights and the phone
connects the telephone line. To disconnect
the telephone line, press SPEAKERPHONE
again. The indicator goes off.
Notes:
If you are using the handset and you want to
switch to the speakerphone, press SPEAKERPHONE. Return the handset to the cradle.
• Since pressing STORE does not break the
dial tone, the phone company “line alert”
signal may occur when entering longer
numbers. This does not affect number
storage.
To switch from the speakerphone to the handset, lift the handset. When you lift up the
handset, the speakerphone turns off automatically.
• To replace a number in one of the memory locations repeat steps 1 through 3.
During step 2, enter the new number in
any memory location you wish to change.
If you decide to change from speakerphone to
handset operation during redial or memory dialing, let the number completely dial before
you lift the handset.
Dialing a Stored Number
To dial a number stored in direct memory,
press the desired direct memory location (1-3)
at the top of the phone.
Setting the Receiver and Speakerphone Volume
To dial a number stored in a standard memory
location, press MEMORY, then the desired
memory key (0-9).
Slide RECEIVER VOL to LO/MED/HI as desired
to adjust the handset receiver volume.
Chain-Dialing Memory Numbers
Slide SPEAKER VOL to set the speakerphone
volume as desired.
If you frequently use special telephone services, you can save time by storing the phone
number of the service in one memory location
and the rest of the information, such as a long
distance number, in another memory location.
Using Mute
To temporarily disconnect the speakerphone
or handset without ending the call, so you can
talk privately with someone in the room, press
MUTE. The MUTE indicator lights. To resume
your call, press MUTE. The MUTE indicator
goes off.
To chain-dial, enter the memory location of
the service number first. Then when the service answers, enter the memory location of
the other information.
Note: We recommend you do not store security numbers, such as personal access codes
for bank-by-phone services, in any memory
location.
Storing a Number in Memory
The telephone has 3 direct and 10 standard
phone memory storage locations.
1. With the handset off hook or SPEAKERPHONE on, press STORE.

Using Redial
You can quickly dial the last number dialed by
pressing REDIAL/PAUSE when you hear a dial
tone. The redial number is replaced each time
you dial a new number. The redial memory
holds up to 32 digits, to store long distance as
well as local numbers.
Note: If you press FLASH while dialing a number, only the digits after FLASH are stored in
redial memory.
Using Flash
Many special telephone services, such as Call
Waiting, require a switchhook signal. The
FLASH button provides the electronic equivalent of a switchhook operation.
For example, if you have Call Waiting, you
can put a call on hold and take a second incoming call on the same line by pressing
FLASH.
Only the digits you dial after you press FLASH
are stored in redial memory.
Note: If you do not have any special phone
services, pressing FLASH might disconnect
the current call.
Using Pause
In some telephone systems, you must dial an
access code (9, for example) and wait for a
second dial tone before dialing an outside
number. When you manually dial a number, or
when you store a number in memory, you can
have your telephone pause anywhere during
the dialing sequence. Simply press REDIAL/
PAUSE at the desired location.
When you redial or memory dial a number, the
telephone pauses for about 3 to 6 seconds at
the pause entry. For longer pauses, press REDIAL/PAUSE again.

Modifying or tampering with the telephone’s
internal components can cause a malfunction
and might invalidate its warranty and void
your FCC authorization to operate it. If your
telephone 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 telephone until you have resolved the problem.
TROUBLESHOOTING
If your telephone is not operating properly, go
through this checklist.
Is the phone properly connected?
Is the T/P switch set correctly?
If the telephone’s volume level drops or it begins to make strange sounds, determine if
other phones have been picked up on the
same line. This phone might not operate when
other phones are active on the same line (especially in areas with low telephone voltage).
Hang up the other phones to correct the problem.
If any additional telephone devices have been
added at or about the time this phone’s performance diminished, recalculate the total REN
for your devices (see “FCC STATEMENT” on
Page 1).
If the volume of the speaker is too low, even
with the volume control set to its highest level,
or if the speaker does not work, connect the
supplied AC adapter (see “Connecting an AC
Adapter” on Page 3).
When the party on the phone cannot hear
you, but you can hear them, check the MUTE
indicator. If the light is on, press MUTE so it is
off.
If you still have problems, disconnect the
phone. 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.
CARE
Keep the telephone dry; if it gets wet, wipe it
dry immediately. Use and store the telephone
only in normal temperature environments.
Handle the telephone carefully; do not drop it.
Keep the telephone away from dust and dirt,
and wipe it with a damp cloth occasionally to
keep it looking new.
