Fitting the battery pack
Place the battery leads in the cable guides so
that the battery cover cannot catch on the leads
and damage them when it is closed.
Use only the rechargeable battery pack rec-
ommended by Siemens (page 9), i.e. never use
a conventional (non-rechargeable) battery pack
as this may cause significant damage to health
and property. For example, the outer casing of the
battery pack could be destroyed or the battery
pack could explode. The phone could also mal-
function or be damaged as a result of using batter-
ies that are not of the recommended type.
Never use non-Siemens battery chargers as
this could damage the battery pack.
Only place the handset in the charging cradle
that is intended for it.
Insert the plug into the socket as shown in the
enlarged view.
Insert the battery pack.
Place the cords in the cord routing.
