      Comments about RadioShack Caller ID/Call-Waiting ID with Backlit Display:

      I like to use my old telephone so this gives me the caller ID I want. It's still hard to see display in dark even with the back light due to the soft LCD display and is kind of on the expensive price. It don't let you delete single calls but only deletes all the calls at once.

      Worst Caller ID Ever!

          Comments about RadioShack Caller ID/Call-Waiting ID with Backlit Display:

          Oops! I wrote the previous glowing review, and don't know how to delete it. While I was on the phone with one call and another person called in their call would just break through without me doing anything. I called the store I bought it from and asked them for a tech support number for Radio Shack products, they put me on hold for several minutes-twice-and then after chatting with a friend at the counter for several minutes finally gave me an 800 number. I called the number and after going through several prompts got a recorded message saying they don't do tech support for Radio Shack products--call the store!!! Of course, I already knew that no one at the store would know anything, but for laughs I called anyway. The guy said, "I don't know what's wrong with it, why don't you look it up online!" So, the product is useless, Radio Shack employees don't know technical information for their own products, and I am back on the hunt for a Caller ID that works.

            Comments about RadioShack Caller ID/Call-Waiting ID with Backlit Display:

            Actually, I use this equally for business and personal. I don't know why this model got bad reviews. I think a lot of people didn't read the manual. It's a little larger than the couple of CID's I've had in the past which gives it a very sturdy feel, and it looks good. A lot of comments about the screen being hard to read! Apparently people don't realize you just press any key on the pad and the screen lights up like Christmas! I used to have to use a flashlight for my old one. And it's got an easy to read big screen. It holds 99 calls. Last one only 50. I didn't have any more plugs to spare at my desk, so I don't mind the 4 AA batteries. And the best thing of all for me: it flashes on every call, not just when a message is left. (Half the people today don't leave messages.) So I always know when someone has called even if I had the ringer off (at night) or was running the vacuum, etc...I'm so happy I found this one. It is far superior to the other one's I was looking at.

                Comments about RadioShack Caller ID/Call-Waiting ID with Backlit Display:

                I used the suggestions from others on this site and soldered in a 6v power supply. I used an old power supply from an AT&T telephone dock. Just make sure you have the polarity right when connecting the power supply to the unit. Use a DC voltmeter and it's pretty easy. If you use this unit with batteries, get ready to buy a lot of batteries, because it uses them up very fast.

                    Its fine if you take it apart, and solder in to the battery wires inside the unit, a seaparate 6 volts DC power supply, then you never need to use batteries again

                    I purchased from Radio Shack the :
                    AC-to-DC Power adaptor (for the Caller ID) 6 V. DC 300 MA. by Enercell No. 273-313 ; UPC#0 40293 70931 0 (Positive polarity) Radio Shack No. 2730313

                    Its excelent, no longer the need for bateries

                    I have an older model with AC power. I will NOT buy the new model unless it is configured to run on AC power. The old model has worked VERY well for several years. I need something for other phone lines. Unless the 43-3903 is configured for AC power, I will take my business elsewhere.

                      After reading the reviews, I hesitated in buying this item but since they have a liberal return policy, I gave it a try. It works fine. It gives the identity of the caller and the number they are calling from. I am keeping it because it does what I hoped it would.
