Prolong battery life

Many features in your device increase the demand on battery power and reduce the

battery lifetime. To save battery power, note the following:
● Features that use Bluetooth connectivity, or allowing such features to run in the

background while using other features, increase the demand on battery power.

Deactivate Bluetooth connectivity when you do not need it.

● If you have selected Packet data connection > When available in the

connection settings, and there is no packet data coverage (GPRS), the device

periodically tries to establish a packet data connection. To prolong the operating

time of your device, select Packet data connection > When needed.

● If the signal strength of the cellular network varies much in your area, your device

must scan for the available network repeatedly. This increases the demand on

battery power.

● The backlight of the display increases the demand on battery power. In the

display settings, you can adjust the display brightness and change the time-out

period after which the backlight is switched off. Select Menu > Settings and

Phone > Display > Brightness or Light time-out.

● Leaving applications running in the background increases the demand on battery

power. To access the applications you are not using, press and hold the menu

key, and select an application.
