Opening the battery cover

housing and pull the cover upwards.
Step 3: Registering the handset to
the base station and charging the
battery pack
Precondition: The handset is not already regis-
tered to a base station.
Registering the handset to the Gigaset A160/A260/
A165/A265 base station occurs automatically.
Place the handset in the charging cradle of the
base station with its display facing forward. You
will hear a confirmation tone. Leave the handset in
the base station until it is registered.
For multi-sets:
Repeat this procedure with each additional hand-
Automatic registration can take up to 5 minutes.
While this is happening, Registering flashes in the
screen. The handset is assigned the lowest unas-
signed internal number (1–4). If several handsets
are registered to the base station, the internal
number is shown in the top left of the display after
registration, e.g. 2. If the internal numbers 1 to 4
have already been assigned (four handsets have
already been registered), handset number four is
de-registered and overwritten.
Charging the battery pack
To charge the battery pack, leave the handset
in the base station for approx. 13 hours for the
Gigaset A160/A260 or approx. 6 hours for the
Gigaset A165/A265. The battery pack is now fully
charged. The charge status of the battery pack is
correctly displayed only after uninterrupted charg-
ing/discharging. Therefore you should not
interrupt the charging procedure.
Charging is electronically controlled to prevent the
battery pack from overcharging. The battery pack
heats up during charging. This is normal and not
dangerous. After a time its charge capacity will
decrease for technical reasons.
You must set the date and time to ensure that the
times of calls are logged correctly (see Menu tree,
page 12).
Once the phone is registered and the time set, the
idle display looks as shown on page 1.
