If your handset has a touch screen display, please note that a
touch screen responds best to a light touch from the pad of your
finger or a non-metallic stylus. Using excessive force or a metallic
object when pressing on the touch screen may damage the
tempered glass surface and void the warranty. For more
information, refer to “Standard Limited Warranty” on page 96.
Low Battery Indicator
When the battery is weak and only a few minutes of talk time
remain, a warning tone sounds and the “Battery Low” message
repeats at regular intervals on the display. The backlight turns off
to conserve the remaining battery power.

turns off.
