Prolong battery life

Many features in your device increase the demand on battery power and reduce the battery life time.

To save battery power, note the following:

• Features that use Bluetooth technology, or allowing such features to run in the background while using other features, increase the demand < on battery power. To prolong the operating time of your device, turn the Bluetooth technology off when you do not need it.

• Features that use wireless LAN (WLAN), or allowing such features to run in the background while using other features, increase the demand < on battery power. WLAN on your Nokia device switches off when you are not trying to connect, not connected to another access point, or not C scanning for available networks. To further .2
