Safety precautions
Switch off in hospitals or in the vicinity of medical devices, e.g.
hearing aids. You should keep a
minimum distance of 20 cm between pacemaker and mobile
phone. When using the mobile
phone, hold it to the ear which is
farthest away from the pacemaker.
Always use the handsfree kit for
calls while driving (p. 68).
Mobile phones must be switched
off at all times in an aircraft.
To prevent accidental activation,
see (p. 51).
Switch off near petrol stations,
fuel depots, chemical plants or
blasting operations.
Mobile phones can interfere with
the operation of technical installations.
The ring tone is reproduced
through the earpiece. To avoid
damage to hearing, first accept
the call, then hold the phone to
the ear.
SIM card may be removed.
Caution! Small parts could be
swallowed by children.
The mains voltage specified on
the power supply unit must not be
exceeded.
3
We recommend you use only
original Siemens batteries
(100% mercury-free) and charging devices. Otherwise considerable health risks and damage to
the product cannot be excluded.
Neither the phone nor the battery
(100% mercury-free) may be
opened under any circumstances
(except when exchanging the
battery, SIM card or top shell).
Any other changes to this device
are strictly prohibited, as they will
invalidate the type approval criteria required for operation of the
unit.
Please note
Dispose of used batteries and
phones according to the legal
regulations.
Mobile phones can interfere with
the operation of nearby TVs,
radios, PCs.
We recommend you use only
original Siemens accessories to
avoid possible damage and to
comply with the existing regulations.
Improper use invalidates the warranty!

Getting Started
Charge battery
The battery is not fully charged when
delivered, so:
• Plug in charger cable at the bottom of the phone, plug in the plugin power supply unit to the mains
power socket and charge for at
least two hours.
If the battery is totally discharged no charge
icon is displayed at the beginning of the
charging process.
If this is the case leave the charger cable
plugged in, the charge icon will appear after
a maximum of 2 hours. The battery is then
automatically charged.
• Push the sides of the charger cable plug together and pull to remove it.
Charging
The charger heats up when used for long
periods. This is normal and not dangerous.
Á
When charging is in progress.
e End of charging.
An empty battery is fully charged after about
2 hours. Charging is only possible in an ambient temperature of 5 °C to 40 °C (the
charge icon flashes as a warning when the
temperature is 5 °C above/below this
range). The voltage specified on the power
supply must not be exceeded.
Operating times
A fully charged battery provides 60-250
hours of standby time or 100-300 minutes
of talk time. The operating times are average values and depend on the operating
conditions (see table below).
Charge level display (full-empty):

Quality declaration for battery
The capacity of your mobile phone battery
reduces each time you 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 sixmonth period we recommend replacing
your battery if you experience a significant
drop in performance. Please purchase only
Siemens original batteries.

Personalisation
The 1168 offers you numerous options for personalisation, i.e. individual configuration to suit your own
specific tastes. For example you can
have operator graphics as bitmaps *
or screensavers sent via SMS to your
mobile phone. SMS can also be used
to send sounds as ring tones to your
1168.
The Siemens City Portal offers numerous ring tones, screensavers and
operator bitmaps*.
You will find the City Portal in the
Internet under:
www.my-siemens.com/city
The portal also includes a list of
countries where this service is available.
The following pages in the User
Guide describe the relevant download process:
Ring tones ............................ p. 54
Screensaver.......................... p. 56
Operator bitmaps* ............... p. 56
* An operator bitmap is a graphic
which can be loaded into the display
of the mobile telephone in place of
the network operator designation
and will appear there permanently.
This graphic is however linked to the
network of the operator concerned
and is not usually displayed during
roaming (e.g. when you are logged
on abroad to the network of another
provider).
69
In addition you can choose another
colour for the top or bottom cover or
even use a personal photo in JPEG
format to make your 1168 unique.
To make it easier for you to do this,
you can choose one of a number of
templates that best suits your requirements. Naturally you can also
create the front and back of your mobile telephone entirely as you wish.
If you want to load another dictionary
(T9 language version) to make it easier to write SMS messages in another language, you will find a large
choice of dictionaries for downloading via the internet as well as the relevant installation notes at:

SAR (international)
THIS PHONE MEETS
REQUIREMENTS FOR EXPOSURE
TO RADIO WAVES.
Your mobile phone 1168 is a radio
transmitter and receiver. It is designed and manufactured not to exceed the limits for exposure to radio
frequency (RF) recommended by
international guidelines (ICNIRP).
These limits are part of comprehensive guidelines and establish permitted levels of RF energy for the general population. The guidelines were
developed by independent scientific
organisations through periodic and
thorough evaluation of scientific
studies. The guidelines include a
substantial safety margin designed
to assure the safety of all persons,
regardless of age and health.
The exposure standard for mobile
phones employs a unit of measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit stated in the international guidelines is
2.0 W/kg*. Tests for SAR are conducted using standard operating positions with the phone transmitting
at its highest certified power level in
all tested frequency bands. Although
the SAR is determined at the highest
certified power level, the actual SAR
of the phone while operating can 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 of the
phone.
The highest SAR value for this model
phone 1168 when tested for use at
the ear is 0.97 W/kg. While there
may be differences between the
SAR levels of various phones and at
various positions, they all meet the
relevant international guidelines for
RF exposure.
* The SAR limit for mobile phones used by the
public is 2.0 watts/kilogram (W/kg) averaged
over ten grams of body tissue. The guidelines incorporate a substantial margin of
safety to give additional protection for the
public and to account for any variations in
measurements. SAR values may vary depending on national reporting requirements
and the network band. For SAR information
in other regions please look under product
