Safety precautions
Safety precautions
Warning
Read the safety precautions and the user guide before use.
Explain their contents and the potential hazards associated with using the telephone to
your children.
$
Only use the mains adapter supplied, as indicated on the underside of the
charger.
Only use the recommended, rechargeable batteries (¢ page 33), i.e. never
use a conventional (non-rechargeable) battery or other battery types as this
could result in significant health risks and personal injury.
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 charging cradle in bathrooms or shower rooms. The charging
cradle is not splashproof (¢ page 33).
Do not use your phone in environments with a potential explosion hazard
(e.g. paint shops).
ƒ
If you give your Gigaset to someone else, make sure you also give them the
user guide.

your house or apartment.
Please note
Version 4, 29.10.2007

C38H / en / A31008-M2056-C401-1-7619 / starting.fm / 10.06.2008
First steps
The bottom of the phones 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.
For instructions on how to mount the charging cradle to a wall, please see
¢ page 35.
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 vapours.
