Safety precautions

Safety precautions
Caution:
Read the safety precautions and the user guide before use.
Explain their contents to your children, and the potential hazards associated with using the tele-
phone.

$
Only use the mains adapter supplied, as indicated on the underside of the base
station.

Fit only the approved, rechargeable batteries! Never use conventional (non-
rechargeable) batteries as this could damage your health and cause injury. Use
the batteries as directed in this user guide (page 51).
The operation of medical appliances may be affected. Be aware of the technical
conditions in your particular environment, e.g. doctor's surgery.

The handset may cause an unpleasant humming noise in hearing aids.

Do not install the base station in bathrooms or shower rooms. The handset and
base station are not splash proof (page 49).

Do not use the phone in environments with a potential explosion hazard,


e.g. auto paint shops.

If you give your Gigaset to someone else, make sure you also give them the user
ƒ guide.

All electrical and electronic products should be disposed of separately from the
municipal waste stream via designated collection facilities appointed by the
government or the local authorities.
This crossed-out wheeled bin symbol on the product means the product is
covered by the European Directive 2002/96/EC.
The correct disposal and separate collection of your old appliance will help
prevent potential negative consequences for the environment and human
health. It is a precondition for reuse and recycling of used electrical and
electronic equipment.
For further information on disposing of your used equipment, please contact your local
council refuse centre or the dealer you purchased the product from.

Please note:
Not all of the functions described in this user guide are available in all countries.

Order of directory entries


The directory entries are usually sorted in
alphabetical order. Spaces and digits take
first priority. The sort order is as follows:
1. Space
2. Digits (0–9)
3. Letters (alphabetical)
4. Other characters
To get round the alphabetical order of the
entries, insert a space or a digit in front of
the name. These entries will then move to
the beginning of the directory. Names
which you have preceded with an asterisk
will move to the end of the directory.
