cradle.
Only use the recommended, rechargeable batteries, i.e. never use a conventional (non-rechargeable) battery or other battery types as this could result in significant health risks and personal injury.
For example, the outer casing of the batteries could be damaged or the batteries could explode.
The phone could also malfunction or be damaged as a result of using batteries that are not of the recommended type.
Insert rechargeable batteries with the correct polarity, and use them in accordance with the user guide
(polarity symbols are displayed in or on the handset's battery compartment).
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.
The operation of medical appliances may be affected. 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 the handsfree function is
activated. Otherwise you risk serious and permanent damage to your hearing.
The handset may cause an unpleasant humming noise in hearing aids.
Do not install the base station or charging cradle in bathrooms or shower rooms. The handset, base
station and charging cradle are not splashproof.
The charging cradle and base station are designed for use in enclosed dry rooms with a temperature
range of +5°C to +45°C.
Do not use the phone in environments with a potential explosion hazard, e.g. paint shops.
Never expose the telephone to any of the following: heat sources, direct sunlight or other electrical
appliances.
Protect your Gigaset from moisture, dust, corrosive liquids and vapours.
If you give your Gigaset to someone else, make sure you also give them the user guide.
Please remove faulty base stations from use or have them repaired by our Service Centre, as they could
interfere with other wireless services.
All electrical and electronic equipment must be disposed of separately from general household waste
using the sites designated by local authorities.
If a product displays this symbol of a crossed-out rubbish bin, the product is subject
to European Directive 2002/96/EC.
The appropriate disposal and separate collection of used equipment serve to prevent
potential harm to the environment and to health. They are a precondition for the reuse 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.
Warning:
When the keypad lock is active, you cannot call emergency numbers.
