Gigaset C300/C300A – your high-quality accessory
Congratulations on your purchase of this latest generation Gigaset.
Your Gigaset can do a lot more than just make calls:
Directory for up to 250 entries
Save phone numbers and names to the directory (¢ page 30). You can designate important
entries as VIPs (Very Important Persons). VIP calls are then recognized by their ringer and their
color in the directory (¢ page 30).
If you don't (always) want it to ring
Use time control for calls (¢ page 45) or ensure that all calls from a withheld number are not
signaled (¢ page 45).
Other practical information
Transfer the directory from an existing Gigaset handset (¢ page 31), use the shortcut function (¢ page 31) and adjust the color and contrast of the display to your requirements
(¢ page 44).

Following 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 51, as this could otherwise result in significant health risks and personal injury.
Using your telephone may affect nearby medical equipment. Be aware of the technical 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 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. If you require assistance,
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 51).
Do not use your phone in environments with a potential explosion hazard (e.g., paint
shops).
ƒ
If you give your Gigaset to a third party, make sure you also give them the user guide.
Remove faulty bases from use, as these could interfere with other wireless services.
Please note

Taking the first steps
Setting up the base and charger (if included)
The base and charger are designed for use in dry rooms in a temperature range of
+41°F to +113°F.
¤ Set up the base at a central point in the building on a level, non-slip surface or
mount the base or charger on the wall (¢ page 62).
Please note
Pay attention to the range of the base.
This is up to 328 yards in unobstructed outdoor areas and up to 55 yards inside
buildings. The range is reduced when Eco Mode is activated (¢ page 40).
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.
Connecting the base
¤ First, connect the telephone jack 2
and insert the cables into the cable
ducts.
¤ Then connect the power adapter 1.

Notes on Caller ID (CID)
By default, the number of the caller is shown
in the display of your Gigaset telephone. You
do not have to make any other settings on
your Gigaset telephone.
However, if the caller's number is not
displayed, this can be due to the
following:
u You have not ordered CID from your network provider or
u Your telephone is connected through a
PBX that does not transmit all information.
Is your telephone connected through
a PBX/gateway?
You can establish this by checking for an
additional device connected between your
telephone and house connection, e.g., a
PBX, gateway etc. In most cases, simply
resetting this device will remedy the situation:
¤ Briefly disconnect the power plug of your
PBX. Re-insert the plug and wait for the
device to restart.
If the caller number is still not
displayed:
¤ Check the CID settings of your PBX
and activate this function if necessary.
In the user guide for the device, search
for the term "CID" (or an alternative term
such as "phone number transmission",
"caller ID", ..). If necessary, contact the
device manufacturer.
If this does not resolve the problem, it is possible that your network provider does not
support the CID service for this number.

Have you ordered the CID service from
your network provider?
¤ Check whether your provider supports
Caller ID (CID) and that the function has
been activated for you. If necessary, contact your provider.
Additional information on this subject can

other people can listen in on the conversation.
Please note
You may wish to inform your caller
before you use the handsfree function so
that they know a third party may be listening.

the environment and to
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 or your refuse collection service.
Wipe down the base station and handset
with a damp cloth (do not use solvent or a
microfiber cloth) or an antistatic cloth.

accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.
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.
