require electricity available for use during power outages.
Only insert approved rechargeable batteries of the same type.
Never use ordinary (non-rechargeable) batteries as they may pose a health
hazard or cause injury.
Do not charge the handset in charging unit or base station while the headset is
connected.
‹
Make sure the rechargeable battery is inserted the right way round.
Œ
Use the battery specified in these operating instructions.
The phone may affect medical equipment so always switch your phone off
before entering hospitals or doctors’ practices.
To maintain compliance with the Industry Canada’s RF exposure guideline, place
the base station at least 20 cm from nearby persons.
Notice to Hearing Aid Wearers:
This phone system is compatible with inductively coupled hearing aids.
Do not operate the phone in places where there is a risk of explosion
(such as paint workshops).

Gigaset S185 – more than just a telephone
Gigaset S185 –
more than just a telephone
Your phone not only enables you to store
up to 150 telephone numbers (page 18) –
it can do a whole lot more:
u You can designate important people as
VIPs so you can identify important calls
from the ringtone (page 18).
u You can store anniversary dates
(page 19) in your phone and it will
remind you of them in advance.
u Select frequently used phone numbers
at the press of a single key (page 18).
u View missed calls on your phone
(page 21).
u Select 12 or 24-hour format for displaying the time (page 13).
u ECO DECT reduces power consumption
by using a power supply with low
power consumption. Your handset
reduces the transmitting power
depending on the distance to the base
station (close-up range).
Note:
The transmitting power of the base station is
reduced to almost zero when the handset is
docked and only one handset is registered on
the base station (not applicable for
Gigaset S185 Duo).
Have fun using your new telephone!

Registering handsets
You must activate manual registration of
the handset at both the handset and the
base station.
After it has been registered, the handset
returns to idle status. The internal number
of the handset appears in the display, for
example INT 1. If it does not, repeat the
procedure.
You can register up to a total of six handsets on your base station.
A Gigaset handset can be registered on up
to four base stations.
Automatic registration:
Gigaset handset to Gigaset S185 base
station
Important: The handset must not yet be
registered to any base station.
Registering the handset to the
Gigaset S185 base station occurs automatically.
¤ Place the handset in the base with its
display facing outwards.
Registration takes around 1 minute. During this process, Regstr.Procedure appears
in the display and the name of the base
station flashes, for example Base 1. When
the handset has been registered, its
screen displays its internal number, for
example INT 2 for internal number 2. The
handset is assigned the lowest available
internal number (1-6). If all internal numbers 1-6 have been assigned, number 6 is
overwritten, assuming that the handset
with the internal number 6 is in idle status.
Note:
– Automatic registration is not possible when
the base station on which you wish to register the handset is being used to make a
call.
– Each key press interrupts the automatic
registration.
– If automatic registration does not work,
you will have to register the handset manually.
– You can change the name of the handset

Using a handset as a room
monitor
If the room monitor is activated, a previously stored destination number is called
as soon as a set noise level is reached. You
can store an internal or external number
in your handset as the destination
number.
The room monitor call to an external
number stops after approx. 90 seconds.
The room monitor call to an internal
number (handset) stops after approx.
3 minutes (depending on the base station). While the room monitor is activated,
all keys are locked except the end call key.
The handset's speaker is muted.
When the room monitor is activated,
incoming calls to the handset are indicated without a ringtone and are only
shown on the screen. The display and keypad are not illuminated and advisory
tones are also turned off.
If you accept an incoming call, the room
monitor mode is suspended for the duration of the call, but the function remains
activated.
If you switch off the handset, the room
monitor mode is deactivated. You will
need to reactivate the function after
switching on the handset again.
Caution:
– You should always check the operation
of the room monitor before use. For
example, test its sensitivity. Check the
connection if you are diverting the room
monitor to an outside number.
– When the function is switched on the handset's operating time is severely reduced. If
necessary, place the handset in the base.
This ensures that the batteries do not run
down.
– Ideally the handset should be positioned
1 to 2 meters away from the sound being
monitored. The microphone must be
directed towards the monitored sound.
– The connection to which the room monitor
is diverted must not be blocked by an activated answer machine.

customer should be aware that compliance
with the above conditions may not prevent
degradation of service in some situations.
Repairs to certified equipment should be coordinated by a representative designated by the
supplier. Any repairs or alterations made by the
user to this equipment, or equipment malfunctions, may give the telecommunications company cause to request the user to disconnect
the equipment.

that the electrical ground connections of the
power utility, telephone lines and internal
metallic water pipe system, if present, are
connected together.
This precaution may be particularly important
in rural areas
