Why does the caller's name not display when they call me?
It’s very probable that your caller’s number has been saved in the 06xxxxxxxx format whereas the number calling is in the international +336xxxxxxxx format (or vice-versa). Simply save the number in the appropriate format.
I have sound problems on my waterproof CROSSCALL mobile
As our mobiles and smartphones are waterproof and also very often airtight, closing the battery cover may cause overpressure inside the phone. This overpressure can affect the membranes of the earpiece, microphone and speaker, reducing the amplitude of vibrations and the quality and amplitude of the sound. The solution is to open the USB/Jack Plug cover at least once, once you have closed the battery cover, to release the “overpressure” inside the phone.

Depending on your model, the code is either “0000” or “1234”.

How to manage two calls on your SHARK-V2
I'm having difficulty with Bluetooth reconnection on Shark V2
The Shark Bluetooth is version 2.1. This version does not include automatic reconnection initiated from your mobile. Our tests have shown that automatic reconnection initiated by a vehicle’s Bluetooth system works correctly (if the phone’s Bluetooth is activated). The vehicle’s Bluetooth equipment should be a recent version which has the automatic Bluetooth scan and search function. If this is not the case, reconnection between the vehicle and your mobile will need to be done manually from your mobile or vehicle.
How can I withhold my telephone number with the SHARK-V2?
To withhold or display your number, go to the telephone application then to the menu via the key below and to the left of the display: Settings >> Voice call >> Other settings >> Caller number
