ECO DECT
During a call, the level of the handset's radio signal adjusts automatically according to
the distance between the handset and base station: the shorter the distance, the lower
the signal strength (radiation).
The handset’s radio signal is switched off when it is in standby mode. The base station,
however, maintains contact with the handset with fewer radio signals.
In addition, the base station radio signals are switched off when the No Radiation
setting is enabled.

¤ OK (‰= radiation switched off, icon ½ in the left-hand corner of the display)
Please note
◆ All registered handsets must support this feature.
◆ For quick connection of incoming calls the handset repeatedly switches to reception mode for short periods. This increases energy consumption and therefore
reduces the standby and talk times.

Safety precautions
◆ The device cannot be used in the event of a power failure. It is also not possible to
transmit emergency calls.
Read the safety precautions and the user guide before use.
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 devices.
Use only rechargeable batteries that correspond to the specification (see
„Technical Data“). Never use a conventional (non-rechargeable) battery or other
battery types as this could result in significant health risks and personal injury.
Rechargeable batteries, which are noticeably damaged, must be replaced.
Using your telephone may affect nearby medical equipment. Be aware of the
technical conditions in your 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 (for the specifications of your
Gigaset product see „Technical Data“).
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 phone may cause interference in analogue hearing aids (humming or
whistling) or cause them to overload. If you require assistance, please contact the
hearing aid supplier.
The base and charger are not splashproof. For this reason do not install them in a
damp environment such as bathrooms or shower rooms.
Version 4, 16.09.2005
Do not use your phone/phone system in environments with a potential explosion
hazard (e.g., paint shops).
If you give your Gigaset to a third party, make sure you also give them the user
guide.
Remove faulty devices from use or have them repaired by our Service team, as
these could interfere with other wireless services.
◆ Emergency numbers cannot be dialled if the keypad lock is activated!
First steps
Check the pack contents
One Gigaset A120/A120A/A220/A220A base station, one mains adapter, one Gigaset
handset, one phone cord, two batteries, one battery cover, one user guide.
If you have purchased a model with multiple handsets, the package should contain
two batteries, a battery cover and a charging cradle with mains adapter for each additional handset.
Setting up the base station and charging cradle (if included)
◆ Set up the base station at a central location on a flat, non-slip surface in your house
◆

or apartment. You can also mount the base station and charging cradle on the
wall.
Pay attention to the range of the base station. This is up to 300 m in unobstructed
outdoor areas and up to 50 m inside buildings.
The base station and charging cradle are designed for use in enclosed dry rooms
in a temperature range of +5 °C to +45 °C.
Care: Wipe down the base station and handset with a damp cloth (no solvents) or
an antistatic cloth. Never use a dry cloth. This can cause static.
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 risk
of marks on the surfaces cannot be completely ruled out.
Never expose the telephone to the influence of heat sources, direct sunlight or
other electrical devices.
Protect your Gigaset from moisture, dust, corrosive liquids and vapours.

model with multiple handsets, all handsets will already be registered
with the base. You do not need to register the handset again. The internal
handset number appears in the top left of the display, e.g. 1 (¢ page 1).
However, if a handset is not registered with the base (Register HS or Put

If you have purchased multiple devices, you can upgrade your Gigaset to
a cordless PABX by registering all A120/A220 handsets at the same base
(¢ page 9).
After the first battery charge and discharge, you may place your handset
in the charger after every call.
Always repeat the charging and discharging procedure if you remove the
batteries from the handset and reinsert them.
The batteries may warm up during charging. This is not dangerous.
After a while, the charge capacity of the batteries will decrease for technical reasons.
