ƒ
If you give your Gigaset to someone else, make
sure you also give them the operating manual.
All electrical and electronic products should be
disposed of separately from the municipal
waste stream via designated collection facilities
appointed by the government or the local
authorities. This crossed-out wheeled bin symbol on the product means the product is covered
by the European Directive 2002/96/EC. The correct disposal and separate collection of your old
appliance will help prevent potential negative
consequences for the environment and human
health. It is a precondition for reuse and recycling of used electrical and electronic equipment. For more detailed information about disposal of your old appliance, please contact your
city office, waste disposal service or the shop
where you purchased the product.

Do not pollute the environment. Emergency numbers cannot be dialled if the keypad lock (page 3) is activated!
Not all of the functions described in this manual are available in all countries.
Place the cover on the battery compartment as
shown in the diagram, then push it up until it snaps
into position.
Setting up the telephone for use
Step 1: Connecting the base
Opening the battery cover
1
2
Connect the phone jack with the phone cord 1
and the mains units (230 V) with the power cord
2 as shown. Place the cords in the cord recesses.
The two cords must be plugged in at all times.
◆ Use only the mains unit supplied (see the bottom of the base).
◆ If you ever purchase another phone cord from a
store, ensure that the phone conductors are correctly connected: 3-4 connection of the telephone
conductors/EURO CTR37.
Step 2: Setting up the handset
Fitting the battery pack
◆ Fit the plug into the socket.
◆ Insert the battery (see diagram below).
◆ Place the battery leads in the cable guides.
Press down on the battery cover below its upper
end and slide the cover down.
W
◆ Place the battery leads in the cable
guides so that the battery cover cannot
catch on the leads and damage them
when it is closed.
◆ Only insert the recommended rechargeable battery pack, i.e. never use a
normal battery pack as this could damage
your health and cause injury.
◆ Never use non-Siemens battery chargers as this could damage the battery pack.
◆ Only place the handset in the base/
charging cradle that is intended for it.
Step 3: Registering the handset to the
base and charging the battery pack
Place your handset in the base with the display
facing forwards. The handset will now register
automatically to the base. For procedure see
page 5.
Charging the battery pack
Closing the battery cover
To charge the battery pack, leave the handset in
the base for approx. ten hours. The battery pack is
now fully charged. The charge status of the battery
pack is correctly displayed only after uninterrupted
charging/discharging. Therefore you should not
interrupt the charging process.
Charging is electronically controlled to prevent
overcharging. The battery pack heats up during
charging; this is normal and not dangerous. After
a time the charge capacity of the pack will
decrease for technical reasons.
You must set the date and time to ensure that the
times of calls are logged correctly (page 10). Your
telephone is now ready to use.
