Siemens phones may cause hearing loss

Certain Siemens phones may malfunction and start emitting very loud noise. The models affected are C65, CX65, M65, S65, SL65, CV65, CT65, CXV65, and CXT65. The malfunction occurs only if, while the phone is in use, the battery runs down to the point that the phone automatically disconnects the call and begins to shut down. When that happens, the phone may begin playing a "shutdown melody" at a very high volume. In extreme cases, if the loud playback occurs while a user is still holding the phone to his or her ear, it may present some risk to the person's hearing. To prevent this, consumers should deactivate the "shutdown melody" as follows:

    1. Select "Setup" from the main menu
    2. Select "Ringtones"
    3. Select "More melodies"
    4. Select "Shutdown melody"
    5. Select "Switch off"
