Safety precautions

Read the safety precautions and the user guide before use.
Explain their content and the potential hazards associated with using the device to
your children.
The device cannot be used in the event of a power failure. In case of a power failure
it is also not possible to make emergency calls.
Emergency numbers cannot be dialled if the keypad/display lock is activated!
Do not use the devices in environments with a potential explosion hazard
(e.g. paint shops).
The devices are not splashproof. For this reason do not install them in a damp environ-
ment such as bathrooms or shower rooms.
Use only the power adapter indicated on the device.
Use only rechargeable batteries that correspond to the specification (see "Specifica-
tions"). 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.
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.
Do not use the device if the display is cracked or broken. Broken glass or plastic can cause
injury to hands and face. Send the device to our Service department to be repaired.
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.
During a call, a very high call volume can be set on your handset. This setting can cause
damage to the hearing of people with good hearing and is only intended for people with
a hearing impairment .
Your Gigaset is compatible with the majority of digital hearing aids on the market. How-
ever, 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.
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 fre-
quency energy (for the specifications of your Gigaset product see "Specifications").
