How to set up your Doro 8080

When you first get your phone, there is a few actions that you need to take before starting to use it.

 Unbox your new phone

The first step is to unbox the phone and assess the items and equipment included in the delivery. Make sure to read through the manual so you can familiarise yourself with the equipment and the basic functions. For more information about accessories or other Doro products please visit www.doro.com or contact our Helpline.

  • The items supplied with the device and any available accessories may vary depending on the region or service provider.
  • The supplied items are designed for this device and may not be compatible with other devices.
  • Appearances and specifications are subject to change without prior notice.
  • You can purchase additional accessories from your local Doro retailer. Make sure they are compatible with the device before purchase.
  • Only use chargers and accessories that have been approved for use with this particular model. Connecting other accessories may be dangerous and may invalidate the phone's type approval and warranty.

 Getting started

Before you start using your new phone you may need:

  • nano-SIM card. To take full advantage of your new smartphone’s capabilities, you should install a SIM card. The SIM card will enable you to place calls or use mobile data to connect to various Internet services. Your mobile service provider will give you a card and the codes needed for it (PIN and PUK) when you buy a mobile contract or a prepaid SIM card. Make sure you get a suitable contract that fit your needs regarding calls and mobile data.
  • Google account. To be able to fully use your new smartphone you need a Google account. If you don’t have one yet, no worries, as you will be guided through a account setup when starting the phone for the first time. It can however be a good idea to think of a Username and Password as these will be used for many services, such as Gmail, Google Drive, Google Photos and more.
  • Memory card (optional). From Android 6.0, you can select to use a memory card (microSD) as extended internal memory or as a portable memory.
  • Wi-Fi access. If you have a Wi-Fi access point available, it’s always good to connect to that to reduce costs for data traffic and possibly increase data speed.

 Insert SIM card and memory card

SIM card is not included and memory card is optional and not included

Caution

Turn off the phone and disconnect the charger before removing the SIM/memory card tray.

 Pull out the SIM/memory card tray

Use your fingernail or other similar object, to gently pull out the SIM/memory card tray.

Important!

Be careful not to damage your fingernails when you remove the SIM/memory card tray.

 Insert the card(s)

  • Place the nano-SIM card into the correct tray slot to ensure that it can be recognized by the phone. Make sure that the SIM card’s contacts are facing downwards and that the cut off corner is down, as shown. Take care not to scratch or bend the contacts on the SIM card.
  • You may also optionally place a memory card in the tray. Make sure that the memory card’s contacts are facing downwards, as shown. Compatible card type: microSD, microSDHC, microSDXC.
  • Insert the SIM card tray back into its slot.

 Start-up wizard

The first time you start your device, a Start-up wizard helps you to setup basic settings, customise your device and sign in to your accounts, for example a Google account.

The device language is normally determined by the inserted SIM card, but you may change the language if you want. All settings presented in the Start-up wizard can also be changed later if you are unsure what to do.

You will also get some quick tutorials of how to handle your phone. Find more tutorials at Graphic Help, p..

 Sign in to Google

Important!

You need an Internet connection to use this service. It is recommended to use Wi-Fi connections when available to reduce costs for data traffic. Contact your service provider for detailed subscription costs before activating.

To be able to fully use your new smartphone you need a Google™ Account. One free account gives you access to free Google products like Gmail, YouTube, Google Maps, Google Drive, Google Photos and other Google product. It’s a convenient way to manage your phone’s applications, contacts, calendar events, reminders and more. You can also back up your information in case you should lose your phone. You don't have to use any of the specific Google services like Gmail on a daily basis if you don't want to, and you can add other email accounts to your phone.

Create Google account

  1. From the Home screen, select GraphicPlay Store.
  2. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the account setup.
Important!

It is crucial that you remember your Google account username and password. During a factory settings restoration or microSD card-based update, Google's anti-theft mechanism requires you to enter the Google account your phone last logged in to on the startup navigation screen for identity authentication. Your phone can properly power on only after the identity authentication passes. Also, if you have more than one Google account, make sure to enter the details for the relevant account.

 Android and Google

Your new phone runs on Android. Android is a mobile operating system developed by Google. It is based on a version of Linux and other open source software, and is designed primarily for touchscreen mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.

You can find more help regarding Android on support.google.com/android/.

Android is also associated with a suite of software developed by Google, called Google Mobile Services (GMS), that are pre-installed on this device. This includes apps such as Gmail, the application store Google Play, the Google Chrome web browser and Google Search app.

You can find more help regarding the apps in Google Mobile Services (GMS) on support.google.com. Select the app you need help with.

    • Fingerprint to unlock you use your fingerprint to unlock. The fingerprint unlock method requires a PIN as well. See more at Fingerprint recognition, p.. This option gives medium to high security.
Important!

It makes sense to choose a password, PIN code or a pattern that is easy to remember, but try to make it difficult enough so that others can’t guess it. The password, PIN code or pattern screen lock, together with your Google account login is the basis for the anti-theft features on this phone. Enabling a secure screen lock and having a Google account on your phone will make it difficult for a thief or other person getting access to your personal data or even resetting your phone. Keep the secure screen lock information and Google account login stored in a safe place!, see Reset the phone, p..

Note! The available options may vary depending on the screen lock method selected.

 Fingerprint recognition

In order for fingerprint recognition to work, your fingerprint information needs to be registered and stored in your device. After registering, you can set the device to use your fingerprint for screen unlock and other features, like Google Pay.

Fingerprint recognition uses the unique characteristics of each fingerprint to enhance the security of your device. The likelihood of the fingerprint sensor not will be able to differentiate two different fingerprints is very low. However, in rare cases where different fingerprints are very similar the sensor might recognise them as identical.

If you use fingerprint as a screen unlock method, you cannot use your fingerprint to unlock the screen after turning on the device or reboot. The first time you must unlock the screen using the pattern, PIN, or password you set when registering the fingerprint. Be careful not to forget your pattern, PIN, or password.

If your fingerprint is not recognised, unlock the device using the pattern, PIN, or password you set when registering the fingerprint, and then re-register your fingerprints. If your pattern, PIN, or password is forgotten, you will not be able to use the device if you do not reset it. Doro is not responsible for any data loss or inconvenience caused by forgotten codes.

If you change the screen lock method to Swipe or None, which are not secure, all of your fingerprint data will be deleted. If you want to use your fingerprint data again, you must re-register your fingerprint data.

 For improved fingerprint recognition

When you scan a fingerprint on the phone, the following conditions may affect the fingerprint performance:

  • A fingerprint may not be recognised if it’s affected by wrinkles or scars.
  • Fingerprints from small or thin finger may not be recognised.
  • Register fingerprints of the hand most commonly used to improve the fingerprint performance.
  • Make sure that the fingerprint sensor area is not scratched or damaged by objects, such as coins, keys, pens and necklaces.
  • Make sure that the fingerprint sensor area and your fingers are clean and dry.
  • If you bend your finger or use a fingertip, the device may not recognise your fingerprints.
  • Press the fingerprint recognition area so that your fingertip spreads over a wide surface area.
  • Do not cover the fingerprint sensor with protective films, stickers, or other accessories that may deteriorate the fingerprint recognition. If the fingerprint sensor initially is covered with a protective film, remove it before using the fingerprint recognition sensor.

The roaming state allows you to be reachable and you can make or receive phone calls regardless of where you are, but it almost always involves a surcharge for using another operator's network. If you need to access the Internet or other data services using mobile data traffic, then you need to activate data roaming. To limit your data usage when abroad roaming is Off as default.

Tip: R is shown in the status bar when roaming.
Your phone can still access the Internet over the Wi-Fi connection even if you disable roaming.
Note! Using data services while roaming can be very costly. Contact your service provider for data roaming rates before you use data roaming.

Turn Data roaming On or Off

  1. From the Home screen, tap Graphic Set Graphic Advanced settings Graphic Network & Internet Graphic Mobile network.
  2. Use the Data roaming switch Graphic to enable/disable.

  4. If needed, adjust the battery level when the battery saver should turn on automatically.
Note! You will be prompted to enable the battery saver feature when the battery level reaches the set level. The battery saver feature will turn off automatically when you charge your device.

 Reduce battery consumption

Here are some tips on how you may extend the phone’s battery power by reducing battery consumption.

  • Charge your phone often, preferably every day. Charging does not affect the lifetime of the battery.
  • When not downloading data from the Internet, which is power consuming, disable data connections over mobile networks. Data is still transmitted over Wi-Fi.
  • Turn off Wi-Fi when not in use. Use the notification panel to disable the features.
  • Turn off Bluetooth when not in use. Use the notification panel to disable the features.
  • Deactivate auto-syncing of apps and synchronise your applications manually, like your email, calendar and contacts.
  • Use the menu in View Graphic My phone information Graphic Battery info Graphic Graphic to see which applications use the most power.
  • Decrease the screen brightness, see Brightness level, p..
  • When in areas with no network coverage, turn off your device or activate the Aeroplane mode. The device repeatedly scans for available networks which consumes power. See Aeroplane mode, p..
  • The GPS is also quite battery consuming. If you want to stop apps reporting on your location automatically, make sure that Location reporting is off, see How to turn off GPS location services, p..
  • Use Doro original handsfree devices to listen to music. Handsfree devices consume less battery than your device's own loudspeakers.
  • Lock the screen when not in use, press the Power button and your display goes to sleep. See Lock screen, p..

 Hearing aid compatible (HAC) Graphic

This telephone is hearing aid compatible. Hearing aid compatibility is not a guarantee that a specific hearing aid will work with a specific telephone. Mobile telephones contain radio transmitters that may interfere with hearing aid performance. This phone has been tested for use with hearing aids, for some of the wireless technologies that it uses, but there may be some newer wireless technologies that have not been tested yet for use with hearing aids. To ensure that a specific hearing aid works well with this telephone, test them together before making a purchase.

The standard for hearing aid compatibility contains two types of ratings:

  • M: To use your hearing aid in this mode, make sure that your hearing aid is set to M-mode or acoustic coupling mode, and position the telephone's receiver near the hearing aid’s built-in microphone. For the best results, try using the telephone in different positions relative to your hearing aid—for example, placing the receiver slightly above the ear may result in better performance for hearing aids with microphones positioned behind the ear.
  • T: To use your hearing aid in this mode, make sure that your hearing aid is set to T-mode or telecoil coupling mode (not all hearing aids have this mode). For the best results, try using the telephone in different positions relative to your hearing aid—for example, placing the receiver slightly below or in front of the ear may result in better performance.

 Memory and storage

Note! When you update the phone the available capacity may change.

Your phone has different types of memory and storage possibilities.

 Internal storage

The internal storage is used to store downloaded or transferred content along with your personal settings and data. Examples are alarm, volume and language settings, emails, bookmarks, contacts, calendar events, photos, videos and music.

 External memory

You can use an external memory card to get more storage space or as a portable memory. There are many different media card standards, use only compatible memory cards. Compatible card type for this device: microSD, microSDHC, microSDXC max 128 GB. SD stands for Secure Digital. Lower-capacity cards store less information. The phone works with or without an SD card installed. We suggest you to use a high speed memory card, especially if used as extended internal memory. Most applications can read data from a memory card but only certain apps can save files to this type of memory. You can, for example, set the camera application to save photos directly to the memory card.

Note! If you insert an external memory, it is recommended you change the default storage location. This allows you to save more files on your phone, like pictures and videos. We recommend that you regularly copy your photos from the phone's internal storage to your computer as a form of backup, see Connect the phone to a computer, p.. These files are found in the DCIM folder on your phone. DCIM stands for Digital Camera IMages and it is the default directory structure for digital cameras and for smartphone cameras.

 Free up memory space

The memory in your device tends to fill up as a result of normal usage. If your phone starts to slow down, or applications suddenly shut down, consider the following:

Free up space

When you are surfing the web or using apps on your phone, that will create temporary files stored on your phone in an area of memory called cache. The reason is that the next time you visit the same website or app the phone will load it from cache memory instead of downloading everything again from the server which, take up time and bandwidth. These files will overtime become obsolete and will then be called Junk files. Follow below to delete Junk files and other files.

  1. From the Home screen, tap View Graphic My phone information Graphic Storage.
  2. Tap Internal shared storage to see the different types of data on your internal memory.
  3. Tap Free up space to delete Junk files which are obsolete system and and app files. .
Tip: The Junk files will increase again over time, and you’ll want to perform again.

Delete pictures

  • If you use your phone to take a lot of pictures, remember to back them up on your computer every now and again. Not only will this prevent you from losing any photos if anything were to happen to your phone, but it also gives you the opportunity to delete them from your phone and free up space. You can access your pictures by simply plugging your phone into your computer via a USB cable, see Connect the phone to a computer, p..
  • There are also several services to use if you want to back up your photos – in many cases, automatically. Preloaded to this phone is the Google application, Photos, that supports unlimited storage, photo and video back up, and even create mini-albums for you.

 The cloud

The cloud is not a physical thing. The cloud is a network of servers, and each server has a different function. Some servers use computing power to run applications or "deliver a service." For example, when you take a picture on your smartphone, it is stored on your phone's internal memory drive. However, when you upload the photos to Instagram, you are uploading it to the cloud.
So remember: The Cloud is a network of servers. Some servers provide an online service, and others allow you to store and access data, like Instagram or Dropbox. Chances are, you encounter the cloud daily. From Google Drive to Evernote, any time you store information without using up your phone's internal data, you're storing information in the cloud.

 Location based services

LBS stands for Location-Based Service and is a software application for mobile devices that requires knowledge about where the device is located. The service can be query-based and it can provide you with useful information such as “Where is the nearest restaurant?”. The service can also be push-based and send you coupons or let you view commute traffic. By law, location-based services must be permission-based. That means that you must opt in (actively say yes) to the service in order to use it.

Tip: Graphic is shown in the status bar when your phones location is being used by any app.
Note! Turning off location for your device also turns it off for Google apps and other non-Google apps. This means that apps can’t use your phone's location, and many useful features will be turned off.

How to turn off GPS location services

 Medical units

The use of equipment that transmits radio signals, for example, mobile phones, can interfere with insufficiently protected medical equipment. Consult a doctor or the manufacturer of the equipment to determine if it has adequate protection against external radio signals, or if you have any questions. If notices have been put up at health care facilities instructing you to turn off the unit while you are there, you should comply. Hospitals and other health care facilities sometimes use equipment that can be sensitive to external radio signals.

 Implanted medical devices

To avoid potential interference, manufacturers of implanted medical devices recommend a minimum separation of 15 cm between a wireless device and the medical device. Persons who have such devices should:

  • Always keep the wireless device more than 15 cm from the medical device.
  • Should not carry the phone in a breast pocket.
  • Hold the wireless device to the ear opposite the medical device.

If you have any reason to suspect that interference is taking place, turn the phone off immediately If you have any questions about using your wireless device with an implanted medical device, consult your health care provider.

 Areas with explosion risk

Always turn off the unit when you are in an area where there is a risk of explosion. Follow all signs and instructions. There is a risk of explosion in places that include areas where you are normally requested to turn off your car engine. In these areas, sparks can cause explosion or fire which can lead to personal injury or even death.

Turn off the unit at filling stations, and any other place that has fuel pumps and auto repair facilities.

Follow the restrictions that apply to the use of radio equipment near places where fuel is stored and sold, chemical factories and places where blasting is in progress.

Areas with risk for explosion are often – but not always – clearly marked. This also applies to below decks on ships; the transport or storage of chemicals; vehicles that use liquid fuel (such as propane or butane); areas where the air contains chemicals or particles, such as grain, dust or metal powder.

 Li-Polymer battery

This product contains a Li-Polymer battery. There is a risk of fire and burns if the battery pack is handled improperly.

Warning

Danger of explosion if battery is incorrectly replaced. To reduce risk of fire or burns, do not disassemble, crush, puncture, short external contacts, expose to temperature above 60° C (140° F), or dispose of in fire or water. Recycle or dispose of used batteries according to the local regulations or reference guide supplied with your product.

Removing/replacing the battery

  • To remove/replace the battery, contact an authorised service centre. Please find latest information at www.doro.com.
  • For your safety, you must not attempt to remove the battery. If the battery is not properly removed, it may lead to damage to the battery and device, cause personal injury, and/or result in the device being unsafe.
  • Doro does not accept liability for any damage or loss if these warnings and instructions are not followed.

 Protect your hearing

Warning

Excessive exposure to loud sounds can cause hearing damage. Exposure to loud sounds while driving may distract your attention and cause an accident. Listen to a headset at a moderate level, and do not hold the device near your ear when the loudspeaker is in use.

 Emergency calls

Important!

Mobile phones use radio signals, the mobile phone network, the terrestrial network and user-programmed functions. This means that connection cannot be guaranteed in all circumstances. Therefore, never rely only on a mobile phone for very important calls such as medical emergencies.

 GPS/Location based functions

Some products provide GPS/Location based functions. Location determining functionality is provided “As is”. No representation or warranty are made as to the accuracy of such location information. Use of location-based information by the device may not be uninterrupted or error free and may additionally be dependent on network service availability. Please note that functionality may be reduced or prevented in certain environments such as building interiors or areas adjacent to buildings.

Caution

Do not use GPS functionality in a manner which causes distraction from driving.

 Hearing aid compatibility

Note! For hearing aid compatibility, turn off Bluetooth connectivity.

This phone is hearing aid compatible. Hearing aid compatibility is not a guarantee that a specific hearing aid will work with a specific phone. Mobile phones contain radio transmitters that may interfere with hearing aid performance. This phone has been tested for use with hearing aids, for some of the wireless technologies that it uses, but there may be some newer wireless technologies that have not been tested yet for use with hearing aids. To ensure that a specific hearing aid works well with this phone, test them together before making a purchase.

The standard for hearing aid compatibility contains two types of ratings:

  • M: To use your hearing aid in this mode, make sure that your hearing aid is set to "M-mode" or acoustic coupling mode, and position the phones receiver near the hearing aid’s built-in microphone. For the best results, try using the phone in different positions relative to your hearing aid—for example, placing the receiver slightly above the ear may result in better performance for hearing aids with microphones positioned behind the ear.
  • T: To use your hearing aid in this mode, make sure that your hearing aid is set to "T-mode" or telecoil coupling mode (not all hearing aids have this mode). For the best results, try using the phone in different positions relative to your hearing aid—for example, placing the receiver slightly below or in front of the ear may result in better performance.

Your device meets the M4/T4 level rating.

 Specific Absorption Rate (SAR)

This device meets applicable international safety requirements for exposure to radio waves. Your mobile device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed not to exceed the limits for exposure to radio waves (radio frequency electromagnetic fields) recommended by international guidelines  from the independent scientific organization ICNIRP (International Commission of Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection).

The radio wave exposure guidelines use a unit of measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit for mobile devices is 2 W/kg averaged over 10 grams of tissue and include a substantial safety margin designed to assure the safety of all persons, regardless of age and health. 

Tests for SAR are conducted using standard operating positions with the device transmitting at its highest certified power level in all tested frequency bands. The highest SAR values under the ICNIRP guidelines for this device model are: 

Head SAR: 0.55 W/kg

Body SAR: 1.74 W/kg

During normal use, the SAR values for this device are usually well below the values stated above. This is because, for purposes of system efficiency and to minimize interference on the network, the output power of your mobile device is automatically decreased when full power is not needed for the call. The lower the power output of the device, the lower its SAR value.

This device meets RF exposure guidelines when used against the head or when positioned at least 0.5 cm away from the body. When a carry case, belt clip or other form of device holder is used for body-worn operation, it should not contain metal and should provide at least the above stated separation distance from the body. 

The World Health Organization (WHO) has stated that current scientific information does not indicate the need for any special precautions when using mobile devices. If you are interested in reducing your exposure, they recommend you reduce your usage or use a hands-free accessory to keep the device away from your head and body.
