When the battery is running out of power and your phone only has a few
minutes of talk time remaining, a warning tone sounds and the Battery
low message appears briefly. When no talk time is left, a warning tone is
sounded and the phone switches itself off.
Do not short-circuit the battery. Accidental short-circuiting can occur
when a metallic object (coin, clip or pen) causes direct connection of the
+ and - terminals of the battery (metal strips on the battery) for example,
when you carry a spare battery in your pocket or purse. Short-circuiting
the terminals may damage the battery or the connecting object.

Leaving the battery in hot or cold places, such as in a closed car in summer
or winter conditions, will reduce the capacity and lifetime of the battery.
Always try to keep the battery between 15°C and 25°C (59°F and 77°F).
A phone with a hot or cold battery might not work temporarily, even if the
battery is fully charged. Batteries’ performance is particularly limited in
temperatures below 0°C (32°F).
The following list provides a guideline that you can follow:
When the operating time (talk time and standby time) is noticeably
shorter than normal, buy a new battery.
Use the battery only for its intended purpose.
Never use any charger or battery that is damaged or worn out.
Dispose of batteries according to local regulations, for example,
recycling. Do not dispose of as household waste.
When you disconnect the power cord of any accessory, grasp and pull
the plug, not the cord.
• IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

the phone in its holder; do not place the phone on the passenger seat or

Remember road safety always comes first!
