                                                                2
Orientation
Position the phone so that the flat display screen and the number keypad are facing
upwards with the number pad closest to you.

Starting at the very top of the phone and coming towards you there is a small centrally
located rectangular slot to allow sound out from the loudspeaker.

Immediately below this hole there is a flat dark surface, which is the display screen,
and at the bottom of the screen there is a silver Doro logo. The display will show
numbers and information in the selected colour text when the phone is switched on.

Next there are six rows of buttons. The first row contains two long rectangular black
buttons with horizontal white lines across their centres. These two buttons are used to
select options in accordance with the changeable prompts shown at the bottom of the
display.

The next row has three large black buttons, with the middle one slightly larger than
those to the left and right. The first, left hand button has a horizontal phone symbol in
green and this is the Call button. The middle button is a Scroll button with a white
arrow pointing up on the top half and a white arrow pointing down on the bottom half.
This button enables you to scroll up and down through lists or menu options.
The right hand button has a red horizontal phone symbol with a red line underneath
the symbol. This button has a number of functions and is the End call, Cancel and
Reject call button.

The next four rows of buttons form the number keypad. The first row has 1, 2, 3, the
second row 4, 5, 6 and the third row 7, 8, 9. The bottom row has star, 0 and hash. The
5 button has two tactile markers towards each edge. The first three rows of the number
buttons also have the letters of the alphabet distributed over them in the standard
allocation as follows: 2 is A, B, C; 3 is D, E, F; 4 is G, H, I; 5 is J, K, L; 6 is M, N, O; 7 is
P, Q, R, S; 8 is T, U, V and 9 is W, X, Y, Z. These letters are used to enter names
against the numbers that you store in your phonebook and also to create SMS text
messages.

Below all these buttons there is a small centrally located hole in the case to allow
sound to reach the microphone.

Underside of the phone
The battery cover forms the lower two thirds of the back of the phone and removing
this gives access to the rechargeable battery bay and the SIM card tray. Immediately
above the battery cover in the centre is the SOS emergency button slightly depressed
below the surface with a tactile surround. This button has a white symbol on it. Above
this button are two small rectangular slots for sound from the loudspeaker.



                                               3
Top edge
Towards the left side of the top edge is a button that is flush with the surround. This is
the power on and off button and will turn the phone on or off when held in the
depressed position.

Bottom edge
On the bottom edge of the phone are recesses for contacts, which enable the phone to
be charged when sitting in the optional charging cradle (available from RNIB under
product code HM39DS).

Right edge
Towards the top of this edge, alongside the screen, are two small circular sockets. The
top one is used to charge the phone from the charger lead and the lower one is to
connect the earphones.

Display
When the phone is on the display shows a number of small graphic symbols on the top
row, from the following selection:

 Signal strength - an aerial symbol with increasing height white bars alongside it.
  These will vary in number with network coverage - more bars equals better
  coverage.
 New message - a closed envelope symbol indicates there is a new unread text
  message.
 Ring/vibrate - a musical note symbol to the left of a mobile phone symbol indicates
  a ring tone only is selected, two vertical wavy lines either side of the mobile phone
  symbol shows that vibrate only is selected. One note symbol to the right of the
  phone symbol and a short vertical line to the left indicates the phone will both ring
  and vibrate.
 Silent mode - a loudspeaker with a diagonal line through it meaning that only the
  backlighting on the keypad will flash to indicate an incoming call. Light only will have
  been selected in the Alert type options.
 Headset - a headphone symbol will appear if the headset is connected.
 Keypad lock - a symbol of a key indicates that the key lock has been activated.
 Alarm - a bell symbol indicates that the alarm has been set.
 Missed calls - shows as an angled telephone symbol with an exclamation mark
  and indicates you have missed or selected to reject a call. Missed calls will also
  show in the main display, just after they happen, as an angled telephone in a box
  and the number of missed calls.
 Roam - the letters RM inside a small square box - will appear if you travel abroad.
  Please telephone your network provider before you travel to ensure your network
  operator has enabled this service for your account.
 Battery charge level - in the top right hand corner of the screen. It consists of a
  small battery shaped graphic with a combination of three white or black segments

                                             4
   that change with battery charge level. Three black segments indicate full charge
   and three white segments means the battery is almost flat.

You can choose which information you would like to be shown on the centre of the
display. Either select the time (clock only) or all info (which includes the name of the
network provider, the date and the time). This can be adjusted in the Idle display
section from within Settings, User setup.

Along the bottom edge of the display when in the standby mode the following words
will be seen:
 Menu - In the bottom left hand corner. This can be seen when the phone is in
    standby mode, and the soft key underneath will gain you access to the menu.
 Name - In the bottom right hand corner. This can be seen when the phone is in
    standby mode, and the soft key underneath it will gain you access to the contact
    list.

Getting started

SIM card and battery

Insert SIM card and battery
First remove the battery cover. To remove the battery cover, please ensure you switch
off the phone and hold the phone face down in one hand with the screen furthest
away. Using your other hand, press down on the cover with your thumb just below the
emergency button and slide the cover down and towards you. Once released, lift the
cover up and away to remove it.

With the display and buttons facing down with the display furthest away from you, the
SIM-card tray is located in the bottom left hand corner of the battery bay and is
accessible when the battery is removed. It is located in a recessed oblong shaped
area, with a metal 'bridge' across the middle.

With the brass coloured contacts of the SIM Card facing down and the cut off corner of
the SIM-card positioned towards the outside edge of the battery bay (left hand edge),
slide the SIM-card into the SIM-card tray making sure it goes under the metal 'bridge'
that keeps it in place. To remove the SIM card use a finger to keep pressure on the
card and slide it out of the shaped recess.

The flat, rectangular battery has three brass-coloured contacts and two locating lugs at
one end and a small tag on each side of the other end. The top side of the battery is
white with black writing on it and this side should face upwards. Insert/reinsert the
battery by first inserting the top edge of the battery, with the three contacts on the top
right hand side (these are a different texture to the rest of the battery's edges), into the
battery bay and gently press it in place.

                                             5
Replace the cover onto the back of the phone by locating the side lugs into the
recesses on the phone leaving a gap of about a quarter of an inch (5mm) at the top
edge. Then slide the cover up until it clicks in place.

SIM - Enter PIN
When using some SIM cards you may be prompted to enter a PIN number when the
phone is turned on. This function has not been activated with the SIM card originally
supplied with the phone.

If it is displayed on screen, when you switch the phone on, enter the 4-digit number
that will come with your SIM card paperwork. As you enter the number the display will
show stars instead of numbers.

Warning - if you enter the PIN number wrong three times then the phone will lock
completely and you will have to contact your network operator for an unlock code.

If there is no SIM card in the phone the display will show a single small square and an
arrow pointing down and the switch on sequence will stop.

NOTE - if you press the green call button with no SIM card in the phone, it will dial the
emergency services.

Battery removal
There are two small lugs on ether side at the bottom edge of the battery. With a
fingernail underneath one of the lugs lift the battery out.

Charging the battery
When charging the battery for the first time, it is recommended that you charge it for at
least three hours. Note however, that the full battery capacity will not be reached until it
has been charged three or four times. Using the mains charging unit that came with
your phone, insert the small round plug into the top of the two sockets on the right
edge of the phone. Plug in the 3-pin power charging unit into a mains socket and
switch on. When you start charging, the screen will display a large rectangular battery
symbol, which will appear to be filling from right to left. It will also give an audible beep.
If the phone is switched on when charging a two-pin plug symbol will momentarily
appear on the screen when you start charging. When the charging lead is removed the
same symbol with a cross through it will momentarily appear. With the phone turned
on, a small filling battery symbol will appear in the top right hand corner of the screen
through the duration of charging.

Instead of plugging the charger directly in to the phone it is possible to place the phone
in the optional charging cradle (available from RNIB under product code HM39DS) and
plug the charger lead in to the socket on the back of this cradle. The same symbols as
described above will appear when the phone is placed in the cradle.


                                              6
The battery can only be charged in the phone and if it is totally flat it may take a few
minutes of charge before it shows evidence of charging.

If you are not going to use the mobile phone for more than a month, it is recommended
that you remove the rechargeable battery from the phone and store it safely.

Product features

Turning the phone on and off
Press and hold the On/Off button on the top edge of the phone until the display and
the keyboard backlight come on and you hear a series of audio tones (these tones can
be deactivated within Settings, Tone settings, Tone setup section). Switch on is
complete when the Doro graphic animations on the display stop and the display shows
the time and the name of the network provider (if a SIM card is fitted).

To turn the phone off, press and hold the On/Off button until you hear a loud beep or a
series of audio tones (depending on the setting selected within Tone setup) and the
phone will give you the option: Power off? Yes or No. Use the left or right buttons
directly under the display to either switch the phone off or to cancel the request. The
screen shows an animated graphic display that then goes blank.

Adding credit to your phone
If you use the SIM card and top up card supplied with this phone you can add credit or
top up your phone in a number of ways. Please note that if you use a different SIM
card then you will need to refer to their terms and conditions for how to add credit. You
will need to add credit to be able to make any calls, you will however, be able to
receive incoming calls.

Using the top up card
Within the plastic wallet that contained the SIM card is another plastic card. This card
is linked to the SIM card and has the telephone number of the SIM card printed on it.
You can take this card and present it in a shop that has a green top up sign and ask for
an amount to be added your phone.

Calling the network provider
Simply dial 150 from using your phone and follow the instructions. Alternatively, you
can call from another phone on 0845 412 5000 but you will need to have your mobile
phone number to hand.

Making and receiving phone calls
There are three ways to dial a number and make a phone call. An SOS button is also
provided.

                                             7
Keypad dial
Enter the phone number direct from the keyboard and briefly press the green call
button. The display will show a telephone handset symbol with an animated arrow
pointing away from it. It will also show the number you are dialling at the bottom of the
display. Remember to use the full STD code. If you are dialling from outside the UK
then add a plus + symbol for international dialling by pressing the star button on the
number keypad twice quickly then add the international dialling code for the country
you are dialling. E.g. +33 to call a number in France or +44 to call the UK from abroad.
(Remember to miss out the leading zero from the telephone number)

When you push the end call button with the red handset on it to finish a call the
duration of the call will be momentarily displayed on the screen.

When you enter the phone number directly you will be given the option to save this
number in the phonebook. To do this respond to the "SAVE" prompt in the bottom left
of the screen by pushing the left hand button of the top row of two buttons. This will
then display "Add New" and using the central arrowed scroll button you should scroll to
Mobile, Home or Office number and select OK. With "Name" at the top of the screen
use the letters on the keypad to enter the name. E.g. to enter SUE press the 7 button
four times for the S, then the 8 button twice for the U and finally the 3 button twice for
the E. (Use the red cancel button if you make a mistake). Press "Save" button (left
hand top). You are then returned to the original screen where you can dial this number
by pressing the green call button in the usual way.

Speed dial
To dial the numbers you have stored for the speed dial press and hold one of the nine
possible speed dial buttons - 0 or 2 to 9. The name of the contact you are dialling will
appear in the display whilst the phone dials that number. If no speed dial number has
been stored against a particular number button then a red circle with a white cross and
"No speed dial" will be displayed.

Storing speed dial numbers
Select "Menu" and scroll down to the "Settings" option using the central scroll button.
Press "OK". Scroll down to "Speed Dial" and press OK. The list of available speed dial
numbers with then be displayed and from this list select the empty ones you want to
set and press "Add". Scroll down the entries in your Phonebook and press OK when
you have reached the name you want to set against that speed dial number.

You can check the numbers you have stored at any time by following the process
above to view the stored speed dials. It is also possible to change your speed dial
selection.

Memory dial from Phonebook
To directly enter the phonebook, press the right hand top button under Name.
Alternatively select the Menu by pressing the top left hand button and this will take you
directly to the Phonebook menu option. Press OK to take you in to the Phonebook.
When in the Phonebook it is now possible for you to scroll through all the entries in the
phonebook using the central scroll button. When you reach the one you require, press
the green call button to dial the highlighted contact. If you have stored more than one
number against this contact you will be prompted to select the number to be dialled.
Note, when scrolling the numbers, a reversed display background will move down to
highlight each number. Also if you select a letter, it will take you to the first contact
name beginning with that letter.

Storing Phonebook memory numbers
Enter the phonebook as described above via the Menu. The top line will read "New
Contact" and this should be selected by pressing the "Add" button. The display will
then show Name followed by the different numbers that can be stored: Mobile, Home
number and Office number. With Name highlighted enter the name using the letters on
the keypad. E.g. to enter SUE press the 7 button four times for the S, then the 8 button
twice for the U and finally the 3 button twice for the E. (Use the Clear button if you
make a mistake). Using the central scroll button scroll down to the type of number you
wish to enter. Using the numeric keypad enter the number directly in to the space
alongside the number type. Add other numbers for this name if desired and then press
the Save button to store the number(s) against the name. This name and number will
be stored in the next available memory location. If the phonebook is full use the up and
down scroll button to scroll to an entry to be replaced and use Options, followed by
Edit to make changes.

SOS calls
The SOS (Emergency call) button is located on the back of the phone. By pressing and
holding this button for three seconds or twice within a second (for alternative settings
see Emergency - Activation section) you will activate an emergency SOS call. On
activation this will send an emergency SMS text message to all contacts on the
Emergency numbers list (see Emergency - Numbers list section). The phone will then
dial the first number on the list and if not answered within 25 seconds the next number
is dialled etc. Dialling of each number is repeated three times, until a call is answered
or until the red end call/cancel button on the phone is pressed. Note that this call
function must be activated in the Settings section before use. The number 112 or 999
must not be one of your listed numbers.

Incoming calls
With the phone switched on, an incoming call is signalled by the phone vibrating, the
backlit keypad flashing and/or you hear your selected ring tone. A large symbol of a
phone handset and a moving arrow pointing towards it will appear on the screen.


                                            9
Accept the call by briefly pressing the green OK button. If the number calling is in your
phone book the phone book held name will also appear on the screen.

Hands free
During a call you can select the hands free function, where the audio is switched to the
loudspeaker, by briefly pressing the right hand button under the displayed "SPK on".
To stop the hands free function and still remain in the call press the same button briefly
for "SPK off".

Using the earphones
To use the earphones, insert the small plug on the end of the earphones cable into the
socket on the right edge of the phone. This is the lower of the two sockets and is
immediately below the charging socket. When the earphones are plugged in, a large
headphones symbol will momentarily appear on the screen and then a small version
will remain on the top row of screen symbols.

The earphones cable has a lapel clip and where the right ear cable meets the left ear
cable there is an oval shaped unit containing the microphone and a small button. This
button can be used to answer and end calls.

End a call or reject an incoming call
If you wish to end a call, briefly press the red end call button.

If the person you‘re talking to hangs up before you do, you do not need to do anything
- the call will be cleared automatically.

When the phone rings and you do not wish to take the call simply press the same red
end call button. A small missed call symbol will show on the top row of the display.

Loudspeaker and earphones volume
You can only change the loudspeaker and earphones volume during a call. Press the
up arrow on the front of the phone to increase the volume and the down arrow to
reduce the volume. The display shows the current volume setting using vertical bars
with seven bars being the maximum.

Silent alert

the ring alert function. In the silent mode only the vibrate mode will operate. In normal
mode ring and vibrate will operate together. A small message is displayed to indicate
the selected state.

Button key lock
To manually lock the keypad to prevent accidental calls, turn the keypad lock on.
Simply go to the home screen and then press and hold the bottom left hand star button
to lock until a large padlock symbol appears momentarily on the screen. A small key
symbol will show on the top row of the display to remind you the keypad is locked. To
deactivate the key lock, having either been manually or automatically set, simply press
and hold the star button again until a large un-padlocked symbol appears momentarily
on the screen. The key symbol will disappear from the top row of the display. See
Keypad lock within the Security section below for an alternative button setting.

Button 2 has A, B and C, button 3 has D, E, and F, button 4 has G, H and I, button 5
has J, K and L, button 6 has M, N and O, button 7 has P, Q, R and S, button 8 has T,
U and V, and button 9 has W, X, Y and Z. The 0 button is used to enter spaces and the
star button is used to enter symbols. For example, hello will be written as follows: H -

information on your phone. With this function enabled your phone can receive new
phonebook contacts, new speed dial contacts, calendar tasks and revised settings for
the emergency button. When activated you do not need to do anything as it is the

On selecting Remote config you will be presented with options of Activation and
Numbers list. Within Activation simply select Off or On to disable or enable the
functionality.

Within Numbers list you will be able to select up to five names and mobile phone
numbers who will be able to send you updates. These can be selected from the

Remote User instructions
With the Doro 505 it is possible for an authorised remote user, such as a relative, to
make changes remotely to the details stored in the phone. This feature provides
enormous opportunity for the settings to be maintained when circumstances change.
The settings that can be amended remotely and how to change them are detailed
below.

Note: Before any friend or relative can change any of the details stored on your phone
you must activate Remote Configuration and add their mobile number to the Numbers
List as detailed in Remote config section above.

How it works
The Doro 505 is updated by an authorised contact sending an SMS message in a
specific format to the phone number of the 505 to be updated. The 505 user doesn't
need to do anything as when the phone receives the text message it will automatically
update the phone. The user will not be aware that changes have been received.
In all cases the SMS format must be *#Command# otherwise the SMS cannot be
identified as a remote control command and the parameters must always be separated
by the # sign.

Setting a contact in the Phonebook
This command enables a new contact name and phone numbers to be sent to the 505
and added to the Phonebook. The format for the SMS message is
*#phonebook#P1#P2#P3#P4# where P1 is the contact's name (up to 30 characters) ;
P2 is the mobile number (up to 40 digits); P3 is the home number; and P4 is the office
number. Remember to include the full area (STD) code in the numbers and
international numbers should commence with a "+" before the country code. If any of


                                            23
the three phone numbers are not applicable or not available you should enter a "." (full
stop) between the two # signs where a number would appear.
An example of a contact message to send John Smith's mobile (07920123456), home
(0173337500) and office (03031239999) phone numbers you would send the following
text message.
*#phonebook#John Smith#07920123456 #0173337500#03031239999#

Setting the Emergency function
This command enables an authorised contact to make five different types of changes
to the emergency button functionality on the 505. It can be used to activate the
emergency button (i.e. make it functional); to add or change one of the emergency
numbers; to turn the sending of the emergency text message on or off and change the
message that is sent; to activate the "confirm with 0" function; and finally to set the
volume of the phones emergency signal when the button is activated. For details of the
emergency button functionality see Emergency section above.
The format for the SMS message is *#alert#P1#P2#P3#P4# where:-
 For activation P1 is "a" ; P2 is either 0,1 or 2 where 0 is Off, 1 is On normal and 2 is
    On with three button presses. E.g. *#alert#a#0# will disable the emergency button.
 For adding or changing an emergency number P1 is "n"; P2 is 1 to 5 for the location
    in the number list; P3 is the contact's name (up to 30 characters); and P4 is the
    contact's phone number (up to 40 digits). E.g. *#alert#1#John#0770123456# will
    add John as the first emergency contact with his phone number 0770123456
 For turning the message on or off and changing the message content P1 is "m"; P2
    is 0 or 1 for Off or On; and P3 is the text message to be sent in an emergency. E.g.
    *#alert#m#1#Janet is in need of help# will turn on the messaging and will send the
    message "Janet is in need of help".
 For "confirm with 0" P1 is "c"; P2 is 0 or 1 to turn this function Off or On. E.g.
    *#alert#c#1# will turn on the need for an emergency call to be confirmed with a "0".
 For setting the signal volume P1 is "s"; P2 is either 0, 1 or 2 where 0 is High, 1 is
    Low and 2 is Silent. E.g. #alert#s#2# will prevent any sound being made by the
    phone when the emergency button is pressed.

Adding a task to the calendar
The final command enables a new task to be set up remotely in the calendar of the
505 . The format for the SMS message is *#task#P1#P2#P3# where P1 is the date in
yyyy/mm/dd format; P2 is the time in hh/mm format; and P3 is the description of the
task (up to 35 characters).

E.g. to set up a dentist's appointment in the calendar for 14:30 on the 9th July 2012
you would send the following text message: *#task#20120709#1430#dentist
appointment#

Note: the nominated users of this remote change functionality need to be made aware
of these particular instructions to enable them to make the necessary changes to your
phone's settings.

Safety advice
Mobile phones must normally be turned off in hospitals and in the proximity of medical
devices. Please comply with any notices and requests from staff to switch off your
phone.



                                          25
Note: There should be a minimum distance of 20cm between a cardiac pacemaker
and a working phone. The mobile phone must never be carried in the chest pocket.

Please take advice from your medical advisor before you use this phone or any other
phone.

The mobile phone must be turned off when directed to by the ground or cabin staff
when you are at an airport or on board an aircraft.

The mobile phone must not be used when you are at or are close to petrol stations and
other potentially dangerous flammable locations.

Do not use your phone if you suspect a gas leak.

The SIM card should be handled carefully, like a credit card: do not bend it, scratch it
or subject it to static electricity.

Do not subject the phone to direct solar radiation. A usage other than that described
beforehand leads to the damage of the product. In addition, another usage could lead
to dangers such as, for example, electrocution, fire, etc. It is illegal to change or rebuild
any of the product parts and the encasement may not be opened.

Cleaning
Use a damp cloth to clean the device. Avoid the use of sprays and too many fluids
because these can enter the device through openings on the keypad and could cause
damages. Do NOT use any cleaning materials or fluids that contain scouring agents,
alcohol, spirits or solvents (turpentine). These agents can attack the synthetic
encasement and damage the imprint.

This mobile phone is to be used as a mobile communications device and contact with
dampness for example, in rain or in the bathroom, etc., must be avoided. Be careful
not to damage the phone in any way.

Troubleshooting


                                             26
Calls fail to connect
Check you are in network coverage, you have sufficient airtime and that the phone
numbers you are dialling are correct.

Phoning outside of your own country
If you are outside the home network of your network provider, your mobile phone
automatically detects and goes through another GSM network. For information on
additional costs incurred when using the phone outside your own national borders,
please contact your network provider.

How often should the rechargeable battery be recharged?
To maximize battery life do not recharge the rechargeable battery after every phone
conversation. Over the course of time, this leads to a reduced battery capacity. To
keep the battery in the best condition it is recommended that you allow the battery to
go flat and then fully recharge it completely once a month. Do not compromise your
safety or security to do this.

Can an emergency call, by entering 112, be made without
network coverage or airtime credit?
If there is no reception or you have no airtime credit the international emergency
number 112 can usually still be dialled. This facility is only to be used in a real
emergency and where you need the direct response of the emergency services. Abuse
of this facility may result in your phone being barred from making a call of any kind.

How can you improve the reception?
Try another location: when indoors, head towards a window or continue with the
conversation after you have exited an elevator, underground garage or a tunnel.
