How to set up your Doro 8040
When you first get your phone, there is a few actions that you need to
take before starting to use it.
Step 1 — 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 com-
patible with other devices.
Appearances and specifications are subject to change without prior
notice.
You can purchase additional accessories from your local Doro re-
tailer. Make sure they are compatible with the device before
purchase.
Only use batteries, chargers and accessories that have been ap-
proved for use with this particular model. Connecting other accesso-
ries may be dangerous and may invalidate the phone's type approval
and warranty.
1
English
Step 2 — Getting started
Before you start using your new phone you may need:
nano-SIM card. To take full advantage of your new smartphone’s ca-
pabilities, 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 +, 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 port-
able 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.

Step 3— Insert SIM card and memory card
IMPORTANT!
Turn off the phone and disconnect the charger before removing the
battery cover.
Remove the back cover
IMPORTANT!
Be careful not to damage your fingernails
when you remove the battery cover. Do not
bend or twist the battery cover excessively
as it may get damaged.
Insert the SIM card (not included)
Insert the nano-SIM card by gently sliding
it into the SIM card slot. Make sure that
the SIM card’s contacts are facing in-
wards and that the cut off corner is up, as
shown . Take care not to scratch or bend
the contacts on the SIM card. Should you
need, but have problem to remove/re-
place the SIM card, use adhesive tape on
the exposed part of the SIM card to pull it
out.

Tip: Take care not to scratch or bend the
contacts on the memory or SIM card when
inserting them into the card holders.
You may also optionally insert a memory card.

are facing as shown. To remove the memory

of the memory card. Put your fingernail into
the ridge and gently pull the card out.
Replace the back cover.

Step 4— Charge
Charge your phone. While it's possible that your phone will already come
with enough charge to be powered on right out of the box, we recom-
mend to fully charge it before first use.
CAUTION
Only use batteries, 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.
AB
Insert the small end of the included USB cable into the charg-
ing port on the phone (A).
You can also charge the phone using the cradle. Insert the small
end of the included USB cable into the charging port on the
cradle and place the phone in the cradle (B).
Insert the other end of the included USB cable into the wall
charger that you plug into to a wall socket.
5
English
You can also plug the included USB cable into a USB port on
your computer. Generally charging is quicker if plugged directly into
the wall socket.
If the phone is turned off during charging, the phone is still charging.
Press the Power button to view charging status.
Save energy
When you have fully charged the battery and disconnected the charger
from the device, unplug the charger from the wall socket.

button to activate the screen, see Lock screen, p.12

English
Step 5— Turn on the phone
Note! When turning on your phone, the installed applications may need
to be updated. Application updates requires Internet connection and can
take a few minutes. A Wi-Fi connection is preferable. The phone may
appear a bit slow during the update.
Once you've fully charged the device, turn it on by pressing and hold-
ing the Power button. Keep it pressed until the phone vibrates and
the display lights up.
Enter your SIM card PIN if requested, then select to confirm. Tap
to erase.
Wait for the phone to start.
If the wrong PIN code is entered several times Enter PUK is displayed
and you need to enter your PUK code (Personal Unblocking Key). Contact
your service provider for more information about PIN and PUK code. See
Change the SIM PIN code, p.43 for information about changing the PIN
code.

Press and hold the Power button until the options menu opens.
In the options menu, tap Power off.

You need to have a Googleaccount, one free account gets you into
everything Google. It’s a convenient way to manage your phone’s applica-
tions, 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 Googleaccount
1. From the Home screen, select Play Store.
2. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the account setup.

Network services and costs
Your device is approved for use on the 4G LTE FDD 1 (2100), 3 (1800), 7
(2600), 8 (900 MHz), 20 (800) MHz / WCDMA 1 (2100), 2 (1900), 5
(850), 8 (900) MHz / GSM 850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz networks. To use
the device, you need a subscription with a service provider.
Using network services may result in traffic costs. Some product features
require support from the network, and you may need to subscribe to
them.
Some operations and features are SIM card and/or network dependent
or dependent on the compatibility of devices and the content formats
supported. Some services are subject to a separate charge.
Data roaming On or Off
When you travel with your device and you are switched from your own net-
work operator's network to another, it’s called roaming. 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 costly. Contact your
service provider for data roaming rates before you use data roaming.

ing condition to prevent damage to the device.
Battery saver mode
Once activated, the battery saver mode, helps to increase battery life.
The battery saver is designed to start functioning when the battery level
of your phone reaches a certain level. To save battery many features are
slowed down, such as: background syncing, vibrations (vibrate on touch
will be lost), email and/or message processes and more.

battery power reaches the preset level, tap Turn on automatically
and select an option.
Note! You will be prompted to enable the battery saver feature when the
battery level reaches 20%. 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 af-
fect the lifetime of the battery.
When not downloading data from the Internet, which is power con-
suming, 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 dis-
able the features.
Deactivate auto-syncing of apps and synchronise your applications
manually, like your email, calendar and contacts.
Use the Battery status menu in your device to see which applica-
tions use the most power.
Decrease the screen brightness, see The screen brightness, p.32.
When in areas with no network coverage, turn off your device or acti-
vate the Aeroplane mode. The device repeatedly scans for available
networks which consumes power. See Aeroplane mode, p.36.
The GPS is also quite battery consuming. If you want to stop apps re-
porting on your location automatically, make sure that Location re-
porting is off, see How to turn off GPS location services, p.74.
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.12.

Hearing aid compatible (HAC)
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 hear-
ing 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 tel-
ephone'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 micro-
phones 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 dif-
ferent positions relative to your hearing aid—for example, placing the
receiver slightly below or in front of the ear may result in better
performance.
The Bluetooth connection®
You can connect wirelessly to other Bluetooth®compatible devices such
as headsets or other phones.

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.
Reset the phone
1. From the Home screen, tap Set A general option
Advanced settings Backup & reset.
2. Select Factory data reset. Carefully read the on-screen information,
it is important!
3. Select Reset phone.
4. Select Erase everything.
CAUTION
This is the last step before ALL data from the device, including
Google or other account settings, system and application data and
settings will be permanently erased.
5. After your phone resets, it will be set back to factory defaults and will
be just like it was when it came out of the box.
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.
41
English
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: mi-
croSD, microSDHC max 32 GB. SD stands for Secure Digital. Lower-ca-
pacity cards store less information. The phone works with or without an
SD card installed. We suggest you to use a high speed memory card, es-
pecially 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 pho-
tos 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.37. 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, con-
sider the following:
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 sim-
ply plugging your phone into your computer via a USB cable, see
Connect the phone to a computer, p.37.
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.

English
Clear the cache memory
What is cache? When you are surfing the web or using apps on your
phone’s browser, those websites that you visit will be 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.

Doro Connect & Care
Note! You need to have Internet access to use most of the features in

lot of Internet bandwidth really quickly. Before you use your phone, we
strongly recommend that you contact your mobile operator about data

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 up-
loading 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 In-
stagram 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 lo-
cated. 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 traf-
fic. 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: is shown in the status bar when your phones location is being
used by any app.
73
English
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.

Medical units
The use of equipment that transmits radio signals, for example, mobile phones, can in-
terfere with insufficiently protected medical equipment. Consult a doctor or the manu-
facturer 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 fa-
cilities instructing you to turn off the unit while you are there, you should comply. Hospi-
tals 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 recom-
mend a minimum separation of 15 cm between a wireless device and the medical de-
vice. 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 im-
planted 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. Fol-
low 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 re-
pair 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 ap-
plies 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 par-
ticles, such as grain, dust or metal powder.

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 differ-
ent 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 ex-
ample, placing the receiver slightly below or in front of the ear may result in better
performance.
Your device meets the M3/T3 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 ex-
ceed the limits for exposure to radio waves (radio frequency electromagnetic fields) rec-
ommended 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.
83
English
Tests for SAR are conducted using standard operating positions with the device trans-
mitting 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: 0.57 W/kg
Body SAR: 1.19 W/kg
During normal use, the SAR values for this device are usually well below the values sta-
ted above. This is because, for purposes of system efficiency and to minimize interfer-
ence 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 posi-
tioned 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.
