or when you have switched on
the handsfree function (p. 19).
Otherwise you risk serious permanent damage to your hearing.
Only use original Siemens batteries (100 % mercury-free) and
– charging devices. Otherwise
you risk serious damage to
health and property. The battery
could explode, for instance.
You may only open the phone
tore place the battery (100 %
mercury-free) or SIM card. You
must not open the battery under
any circumstances. All other
changes to this device are strictly prohibited and will invalidate

T9 word suggestions
Since the display changes as you
proceed it is best if you finish a word
without looking at the display.
If several options are found in the
dictionary for a key sequence (a
word), the most probable is displayed first. If the word you want has
not been recognised, the next suggestion from T9 may be correct.
You simply press the keys where the
relevant letter is located once only.
For "hotel", for example:
# Press briefly for T9Abc then
46835

Press. A blank ends a

The word must be §highlighted§.
Then press
»
The displayed word is replaced with a different
word. If this word is also
incorrect,
Do not use special characters such as
Ä but write the standard character,
e.g. A, T9 will do the rest for you.
»
Note
If the word you want is not in the dictionary, it may be written without
T9.
0
F
#
*
Full stop. Ends a word when a
blank follows. Acts as a wildcard character for an apostrophe/hyphen in the word:
e. g. §provider.s = provider’s.
Press control key at the bottom
to end a word.
Press briefly: Switch between: abc, Abc,T9abc,
T9Abc, T9ABC, 123. Status indicator in the top line of the display.
Hold down: All input modes
are displayed.
Press briefly: Write special
characters (p. 71).

the correct word is displayed.

declaration battery is reduced each time you
for battery charge/discharge it. Storing the battery at temperatures that are too
high or too low also causes a gradual
loss of capacity. This can cause the
operating times of your mobile
phone to reduce significantly per
usage cycle.
The battery is, however, designed to
be charged and fully discharged
within a period of six months from
when the mobile phone was purchased. Following this six-month period, we recommend replacing your
battery if you experience a significant drop in performance. Only purchase original Siemens batteries.

European
Union (RTTE) THIS MOBILE PHONE MEETS THE LIMITS SET BY THE EU (1999/519/EC)
FOR PROTECTION OF THE HEALTH
OF THE PUBLIC FROM THE EFFECTS
OF EXPOSURE TO ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS
These limits are part of comprehensive recommendations for the protection of the public. The recommendations were developed and
confirmed by independent scientific
organisations through periodic and
thorough evaluation of scientific studies*. The limits include a substantial safety margin designed to assure
the safety of all persons, regardless
of age and health.
Before a radio equipment may be
placed on the market, compliance
with the European laws and the respective technical limit requirements must be demonstrated. Only
then the CE mark may be affixed**.
The limit for mobile phones recommended by the Council of the European Union employs a unit of
measurement known as the Specific
Absorption Rate, or SAR. This SAR limit is 2.0 W/kg***. This corresponds
with the requirements of the International Commission for Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection ICNIRP and
was adopted into the European
Norm for Mobile Radio Equipment
EN 50360. The SAR of mobile phones is determined in accordance
89
with the European Norm EN 50361.
This involves measuring the maximum value in all frequency bands of
the mobile phone with the phone
transmitting at its highest power level. The actual SAR level of the phone during normal operation may be
well below the maximum value. This
is because the phone is designed to
operate at multiple power levels so
as to use only the power required to
reach the network. In general, the
closer you are to a base station, the
lower the power output.
The highest SAR value for this model
phone when tested for compliance
against the norm is
0.56 W/kg****.
The SAR information can also be
found on the Siemens web site at
www.my-siemens.com
While there may be differences
between the SAR levels of various
phones and at various positions, all
Siemens products meet the legal
requirements.
* The World Health Organization
(WHO, CH-1211 Geneva 27, Switzerland) states that present scientific information does not indicate the
need for any special precautions for
use of mobile phones.

Your mobile phone is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed
and manufactured not to exceed the
limits for exposure to radio frequency (RF) energy recommended by international guidelines from the International Commission on NonIonizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP). These limits are part of comprehensive guidelines for the protection of the public and establish
permitted levels of RF energy for the
population. The guidelines were
