Safety precautions
Safety precautions
Please read these instructions carefully. Failure to comply presents a risk of injury and damage to
a device, as well as breaches of applicable laws.
Please explain the contents of this document as well as the potential risks associated with using
this device to your children.
General information
Dispose of used mobile telephones in line with the instructions (Chapter Waste and environmental protection p. 81).

For your own safety, only use original, approved accessories from Gigaset for your mobile phone. Using
incompatible accessories can damage the mobile phone and entail hazardous situations. Original accesp. 78).
sories can be purchased from Gigaset Customer Service (see Customer service
The mobile phone is not waterproof. The device or its accessories must therefore not be kept or charged
in damp environments (in bathrooms, shower rooms or kitchens, for example). Rain, moisture or any liquid
can contain minerals which can cause the electrical circuitry to corrode. There is a risk of electric shock, fire
or damage when the device is being charged.
Permitted temperature range for charging and operation: 0-40°C.
High temperatures can shorten the life of electronic devices and damage the battery; plastic parts can
deform or melt. Using or keeping the mobile phone in refrigerated areas can result in condensation on the
inside of the telephone which will destroy the electronic circuitry.
The mobile phone must not be used or kept in dusty or dirty places. Dust can be a reason for the mobile
phone to malfunction.
Switch off your mobile phone when in potentially explosive areas and observe all warning signs. Potentially explosive areas also include places where switching off vehicle engines is normally recommended. It
is at these kinds of places that flying sparks can be the cause of explosions or fires with resulting injuries,
and there may be a risk to life.
These areas include petrol stations, chemical factories, transport and storage systems for hazardous chemicals, spaces under ship decks, areas in which the air contains chemical substances or fine particles (such
as dust or metal powder particles).
Short-circuiting, disassembling and modifying the mobile phone are not permitted because they present
a risk of injury, electric shock, fire or damage to the charger.
The USB connection must be established with USB version 2.0 or higher.
If the mobile telephone becomes hot, changes colour or shape or leaks whilst being used, charged or at
any other time, contact Gigaset Customer Service immediately.
Battery and charging

The battery is built-in. Do not disassemble, weld and/or modify the battery. Do not keep the mobile telephone where it is exposed to strong mechanical effects.
The battery electrolyte coming into contact with eyes can cause a loss of eyesight. If electrolyte does enter
an eye, please do not rub the eye with a hand. Immediately wash the affected eye thoroughly with clear
water and consult a doctor. The electrolyte coming into contact with skin (or clothing) presents a risk of
skin burns. Immediately wash the skin or clothing thoroughly with soap and clear water, and consult a
doctor if required.
The temperature of the mobile phone rises during the charging process. Do not store the mobile telephone in the same place as flammable products as this poses a risk of fire.
Do not charge the battery for longer than 12 hours.
Only charge the device indoors. Whilst the phone is charging, do not use the phone for calls or dial any
numbers.
The socket must be easily accessible during the charging process.
Electrical storms pose a risk of electric shocks.
Do not use the charger when the power cable is damaged because this poses a risk of electric shock and
fire.
Gigaset GS185 / LUG AU-IE-UK-International en / A31008-XXXXX-XXXX-X-XXXX / security_LUG.fm / 7/17/18
Safety precautions
Headset
High volumes can impair hearing. Listening to music or conversation with headphones set to a
loud volume can be unpleasant and permanently impair hearing.
To prevent loss of hearing, do not have the volume turned up too high for long periods.
•
•
If you wear headphones whilst out walking or running, please ensure that the cord does not wrap itself
around your body or objects on your person.
Only wear headphones in dry environments. The static electricity which builds up on the headphones can
discharge via your ears as an electric shock. The static electricity can discharge if you touch the headphones with your hand or touch bare metal before connecting with the mobile phone.
Use in hospitals / medical devices
•
•
•
•
•
The function of medical equipment near your mobile phone can be impaired. Bear in mind the technical
conditions of the environment in question (such as in doctors’ surgery).
If you use a medical device such as a pacemaker, please consult the manufacturer of the product before
using your mobile phone. You will be provided information on the sensitivity of the device to external,
high-frequency energy sources.
Heart pacemakers, implantable cardioverter defibrillators:
When you switch on your mobile phone, ensure that the distance between the phone and an implant is at
least 152 mm. To reduce potential interference, use the mobile phone on the opposite side to the implant.
Please switch the mobile phone off immediately if interference occurs. Do not keep the mobile phone in
a shirt pocket.
Hearing aids, cochlear implants:
Some digital wireless devices can interfere with hearing aids and cochlear implants. Please consult the
manufacturers of these products if interference occurs.
Other medical devices:
If you and the people around you use other medical devices, please contact the relevant manufacturer for
information on whether such devices are protected from radio frequency signals in the environment. You
can also consult your doctor about this.
Emergency calls
•
•
•
Make sure the mobile phone is switched on and connected to the GSM network. Enter the emergency
number as required and speak.
Tell the person at the emergency call centre your location.
Do not end the conversation until the person at the emergency call centre asks you to.
Children and pets
Template Go, Version 1, 01.07.2014 / ModuleVersion 1.0
•
Keep the mobile phone, chargers and accessories out of the reach of children and pets. Children and/or
pets can swallow the small parts, posing a risk of suffocation and other hazards. A child may only use the
mobile phone under the supervision of an adult.
Playing games
•
Playing games on the mobile phone for long periods may mean assuming an unhealthy body posture.
Take a 15 minute break every hour. Stop immediately if you feel unwell during game play. Consult a doctor
straight away if your condition persists.
Aeroplanes, vehicles and road safety
•
•
Switch off your mobile phone in aeroplanes.
Please observe applicable restrictions and regulations. Wireless devices can interfere with the function of
aeronautical equipment. Follow the instructions issued by flight personnel when using your mobile
phone.
The absolute priority for every vehicle driver and everyone in a vehicle is safety on the roads and for road
users.
Using a mobile phone whilst driving can be distracting and therefore lead to dangerous situations. You
can also be violating applicable laws.

Safety precautions
SIM card, memory card and data connector cable
•
•
Do not remove the card from the mobile phone whilst data is being sent or received as this presents a risk
of data loss and damage to the mobile phone or memory card.
Charges might apply when establishing Internet connections via the SIM card.
Defective devices
•
•
•
•
•
The installation and repair of products are the sole preserves of qualified maintenance personnel.
Dispose of faulty devices carefully or have them repaired by our Customer Service team. These devices
could interfere with other wireless services.
Careless handling of the mobile phone, such as dropping it, can shatter the display and damage the electronic circuitry and sensitive parts inside.
Do not use the device if the display is cracked or shattered. Fragments of glass or plastic can injure hands
and face.
In the event of malfunction of your mobile phone, battery or accessories, please contact a Gigaset Service
Centre for an inspection.

Never point the flash light directly at the eyes of people or animals. Pointing a flash light too near to human
eyes poses a risk of temporary loss of eyesight or impairment of vision.
The device can heat up when running power-intensive apps or programs for longer periods. This is normal
and has no bearing on the performance of the device.
When the device warms up, please put it aside for a while and stop the program you were running. Coming
into contact with a hot device can cause minor skin irritations such as redness.
Do not apply lacquer to the mobile phone. Lacquer and paint can damage the parts of the mobile phone
and may cause malfunction.

App permissions
When downloading an app from Google Play, specify the functions and data to which this app
has access, e.g. to contacts or your location.
You can check and change permissions for apps on your device. With App permissions
management, you have quick access to all permissions granted to apps on the device.
Permissions when installing apps
Template Go, Version 1, 01.07.2014 / ModuleVersion 1.0
Many apps downloaded from Play Store request access to particular information before
installation. For apps developed for Android 6.0 and higher, you can grant or deny permissions
on initial use.
Information on app permissions in the Google Play Store:
• On the “Permissions” screen for an app in the Play Store, you can check which permissions
the app requires and then decide whether you want to install it. Scroll down to the very end
of the app description.
• For many apps, all permissions are displayed in Google Play before installation. You can use
this information to decide whether you want to install the apps.
• Some apps are installed without any prompts about permissions. You are then able to grant
or deny individual permissions when using the apps for the first time.
• Permissions might be changed when apps are updated automatically. When using for the
first time a function which requests a new permission, you might have to grant or deny
access to this data or function.
• If you want to check all updates before an installation, disable the automatic updates option
in the Play Store.

About radiation
Information on SAR certification (specific absorption rate)
THIS DEVICE SATISFIES THE INTERNATIONAL DIRECTIVES FOR EXPOSURE BY RADIO WAVES.
Your mobile device has been developed so as not to exceed internationally recommended exposure
thresholds for radio waves.
These directives have been specified by an independent scientific organisation (ICNIRP) and include a high
margin of safety which should guarantee the safety of all regardless of age and state of health. The
directives on exposure to radio waves use a unit called the specific absorption rate (SAR). The SAR
threshold for mobile devices is 2.0 W/kg. The highest SAR values in the ICNIRP Directives for this device
model:
Highest SAR value for this phone model and measurement conditions
SAR for head
0.190 W/kg (10g)
SAR for wearing on
body
1.109 W/kg (10g)
Template Go, Version 1, 01.07.2014 / ModuleVersion 1.0
The SAR values for wearing on the body are determined at a distance of 5 mm. To comply with the HF
exposure directives for wearing on the body, the device should be positioned at least this distance away
from the body.
