INTRODUCTION
Thank you for purchasing a RadioShack 2.4 GHz
Cordless Telephone. Your telephone provides
excellent clarity and range and integrates Caller ID,
Caller ID on Call Waiting, and a digital answering
system into one space-saving device. The 2.4 GHz
band provides superior audio quality and extended
range.
The digital answering system provides clear reliable
messaging with call screening, day/time stamp, call
counter, remote access and instant skip or replay
messaging.
The Caller ID records each caller’s name (if
available in your area), telephone number, and the
date and time of the call, as provided by your local
phone company to Caller ID service subscribers.
IMPORTANT
INFORMATION
! IMPORTANT !
•
When AC power is lost,
the phone loses the
digital security 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.
•
Your phone operates on
standard radio
frequencies as allocated
by the FCC.
•
It is possible for other
radio units operating
nearby on similar
frequencies to
unintentionally intercept
your conversation or
cause interference. This
possible lack of privacy
can occur with any
cordless phone.
This telephone has been tested and found to
comply with all applicable UL and FCC standards. !
FCC STATEMENT
Your telephone compiles with Part 68 of the FCC
Rules.Upon request, you must provide the phone’s
FCC registration number and REN to your phone
company. These numbers are on the base unit.

Introduction
.CAUTION.
RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK
DO NOT OPEN
43-3857.book Page 4 Wednesday, February 18, 2004 12:40 PM
Ô NOTE Ô
You must not connect your
telephone to:
•
coin-operated systems
•
most electronic key
phone systems
Your phone is not intended to be used with partyline systems. Connection to party line service is
subject to state tariffs. Contact the state public utility
commission, public service commission, or
corporation commission for information. Ô
We have designed your phone to conform to federal
regulations, and you can connect it to most
telephone lines. However, each phone (and each
device, such as a telephone or answering machine)
that 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 back of your phone.
FCC Statement
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.
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 phone. The
telephone company notifies you of these changes in
advance, so you can take the necessary steps to
prevent interruption of your telephone service.
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. Privacy of communications,
may not be ensured when using this phone.

43-3857.book Page 5 Wednesday, February 18, 2004 12:40 PM
SURGE PROTECTION
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.
IMPORTANT SAFETY
INSTRUCTIONS
1. Do not use this product near water, for
example, near a bathtub, wash bowl, kitchen
sink, or laundry tub, in a wet basement or near
a swimming pool.
As an ENERGYSTAR Partner,
RadioShack Corporation has
determined that this product
meets the ENERGYSTAR
guidelines for energy
efficiency.
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:
2. Avoid using a telephone (other than a cordless
type) during an electrical storm. There may be
a remote risk of electric shock from lightning.
3. Do not use the telephone to report a gas leak in
the vicinity of the leak.
4. Use only the power cord and batteries
indicated in this manual. Do not dispose of
batteries in a fire. They may explode. Check
with local codes for possible special disposal
instructions.

Important Caller ID Information
IMPORTANT CALLER ID
INFORMATION
To use Caller ID and Caller ID on Call Waiting, you
must be in an area where those services are
available and you must subscribe to those services
through your local phone company. Where Caller ID
is offered, one or more options are generally
available:
• caller’s number only
• caller’s name only
• caller’s name and number
! 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.
Ô NOTE Ô
If your home has specially
wired alarm equipment
connected to the telephone
line, be sure that installing
the system does not disable
your alarm equipment.
If you have questions about
what will disable alarm
equipment, contact your
telephone company or a
qualified installer.
6
If you subscribe to Call Waiting ID and Caller ID, the
system can show you the incoming caller
information, even when you are already talking on
the phone.
INSTALLATION
Before using your phone, carefully peel the
protective film off the display. The film protects the
handset window during shipment and is not
necessary for use.
MOUNTING THE PHONE
You can place the phone on a desk or table.
Choose a location that is: ! Ô
• 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
You can try different locations to see which provides
the best performance.
43-3857.book Page 7 Wednesday, February 18, 2004 12:40 PM
On a Desk Top
1. Plug one end of
the supplied long
modular cord into
the TEL LINE jack
on the base’s
back.
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.
4. Route the adapter’s cord through the hook on
the back.
5. Plug the adapter into a standard AC outlet.
CONNECTING, CHARGING AND
REPLACING THE BATTERY PACK
The phone comes with a rechargeable Ni-Cd
(nickel-cadmium) battery pack installed in the
handset, but not connected. 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.
CAUTION
You must use a
Class two 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.
!
! IMPORTANT !
Installation
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 online at
RadioShack.com), 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. The USOC number of the jack to be
installed is RJ11C (RJ11W for a wall plate).
The EPA
certified
RBRC® Battery
Recycling Seal
on the nickelcadmium (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 1-800THE-SHACK (1-800-8437422) for information on NiCd 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.
