Safety precautions
Warning
Be sure to read this user guide and the safety precautions before using your telephone.
Explain their content and the potential hazards associated with using the telephone to your
children.
Use only the power adapter supplied, as indicated on the underside of the base.
Use only rechargeable batteries that correspond to the specification provided on
page 75, as this could otherwise result in significant health risks and personal injury. .
Using your telephone may affect nearby medical equipment. Be aware of the tech-
nical conditions in your particular environment, e.g., doctor's surgery.
Do not hold the rear of the handset to your ear when it is ringing or when handsfree
mode is activated. Otherwise you risk serious and permanent damage to your hear-
ing.
Your Gigaset is compatible with the majority of digital hearing aids on the market.
However, perfect function with all hearing aids cannot be guaranteed.
The handset may cause interference in analogue hearing aids. If you require assist-
ance, please contact the hearing aid supplier.
Do not install the base or charger in bathrooms or shower rooms. The base and
charger are not splashproof (¢page 75).
Donot use your phone inenvironments withapotentialexplosionhazard(e.g.,paint
shops).
If you give your Gigaset to a third party, make sure you also give them the user guide.
Remove faulty bases from use or have them repaired by our Service, as they could
interfere with other wireless services.
Please note
u Not all of the functions described in this user guide are available in all countries.
u The device cannot be used in the event of a power failure. It is also not possible to trans-
mit emergency calls.

Installing the base and charger
The base and charger are designed for use in dry rooms in a temperature range of
+5°C to +45°C.
¤ Install the base on a level, non-slip surface at a central point in the building or
mount the base on the wall (¢page 82).
The phone's feet do not usually leave any marks on surfaces. However, due to the
multitude of different varnishes and polishes used on today's furnishings, the
occurrence of marks on the surfaces cannot be completely ruled out.
Please note:
u Never expose the telephone to the influence of heat sources, direct sunlight or
other electrical devices.
u Protect your Gigaset from moisture, dust, corrosive liquids and fumes.
Please note
Pay attention to the range of the base.
This is up to 300 m in unobstructed outdoor areas and up to 50 m inside build-
ings. The range is reduced when Eco Mode (¢page 51) is activated.

3. Letters (alphabetical)
4. Other characters
To force an entry to appear at the beginning
of the list, insert a space or digit in front of
the first letter of the surname.

kind of extension number).
Please note:
u If you operate a number of devices
(bases) with SMS functionality on a single
phone line, then each SMS mailbox ID
may only occur once. In this case, you
must also change the preset ID of the
general mailbox ("0").
u You can only use personal mailboxes if
your service provider supports this func-
tion. You can tell whether this is the case
by the addition of a star (*) to the number
of a (preset) SMS centre.
u If you have forgotten your mailbox PIN,
you can reset it by restoring the base's
default settings. This will delete all SMS
messages from all mailboxes.
