particular environment, e.g., doctor's surgery.
If you use a medical device (e.g. a pacemaker), please contact the device manufacturer. They will be able to
advise you regarding the susceptibility of the device to external sources of high frequency energy. Please
refer to the "Appendix" chapter in the long user guide (see enclosed CD) for the specifications of this Gigaset
product.
Do not hold the rear of the handset to your ear when it is ringing or when speaker mode is activated. Otherwise you risk serious and permanent damage to your hearing.
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 analog hearing aids (humming or whistling) or cause them to overload. If you require assistance, please contact the hearing aid supplier.
Do not install the base and charger in bathrooms or shower rooms. The base and charger are not splashproof.
Do not use the phone in environments with a potential explosion hazard, e.g., paint shops.
The charger and base are designed for use in dry rooms in a temperature range of +5°C to +45°C.
Never expose the telephone to heat sources, direct sunlight or other electrical appliances.
Protect your Gigaset from moisture, dust, corrosive liquids and fumes.
If you give your Gigaset to a third party, make sure that you also give them the user guide.
Remove faulty bases from use or have them repaired by our Service, as these could interfere with other wireless services. Disconnect the telephone network connector (TNV circuit connector) before removing cover.
Please note that only terminals that are operated in-house (inside buildings) may be connected to the analog RJ-11 connection.
All electrical and electronic products should be disposed of separately from general household waste using
designated local authority sites.
If a product displays this symbol of a crossed-out rubbish bin, the product is subject to
European Directive 2002/96/EC.
Correct disposal and separate collection of used equipment will help to prevent potential negative consequences for the environment and human health. They are a prerequisite for the re-use and recycling of used electrical and electronic equipment.
For further information on disposing of your used equipment, please contact your local
authority, your refuse collection service or the dealer you purchased the product from.
Batteries should not be disposed of in general household waste. Observe the local waste disposal regulations, details of which can be obtained from your local authority or the dealer you purchased the product
from.

Connecting the PC to the router (optional)
You can change the settings on the phone's base using a PC connected to your phone via the
router.
Version 5, 23.09.2008
> Connect a PC to the same router that the base is connected to.
The procedure below requires that your phone is automatically assigned an IP address by the
router (i.e. DHCP is enabled on router and phone).
In exceptional cases (e.g. if DHCP is not enabled on the router) you will have to assign a static
IP address to the base for LAN access. You must enter this IP address on the handset before
carrying out the following steps. Further information on this can be found in the long user guide
(see enclosed CD).
The following handset menu can be used to make the entry:

Configuring the VoIP connection
Instead of using the following procedure, you can also enter the VoIP access data and assign VoIP
connections to handsets (send and/or receive) using your PC (steps 7 to 12 ):
> Launch the web browser on your PC.
> Enter the URL www.gigaset-config.com in the address field of the web browser and press the
return key.
You are connected to your base's Web configurator. To log in to the Web configurator you will
need the system PIN for the telephone (default setting: 0000).
A description of the Web configurator can be found in the long user guide (see enclosed CD) and
in the Web configurator online help document.
Prerequisite for the following steps:
Before you can use VoIP to phone any other subscribers on the Internet, the fixed line network or
the mobile phone network, you need a VoIP account.
> Set up a VoIP account with a VoIP provider.
> Have your VoIP account information you received from your VoIP provider available.
You will need:
> Your registration name (login ID), your password and, if applicable (provider-dependent), a user
name.

These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. Some cordless telephones operate at frequencies
that may cause interference to nearby TV’s and VCR’s; to minimize or prevent such interference, the system
base should not be placed near or on top of a TV or VCR; and, if interference is experienced, moving the base
farther away from the TV or VCR will often reduce or eliminate the interference.
However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this telephone system does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the
system off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following
measures:
1. Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
2. Increase the separation between the base station and receiver.
3. Connect the base station into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.
4. Consult the dealer or an experienced radio TV technician for help.
