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.

Please note
All registered handsets must support this feature.
For quick connection of incoming calls the handset repeatedly switches to recep-
tion mode for short periods. This increases energy consumption and therefore
reduces the standby and talk times.
