European Notice
Compliance with these directives implies
conformity to the following European Standards:
• 1999/5/EEC Radio & Telecommunication Terminal Equipment Directive
(R&TTE) EN 301 511
• Specific Absorption Rate (SAR)
Standard: EN 50360, EN 50361
• 73/23/EEC Low Voltage Directive
(LVD) Standard: EN 60950:2000
• 89/336/EEC Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC-Directive) Standard: EN

requirements for exposure to radio waves.
This phone is designed and manufactured not
to exceed the emission limits for exposure to
radio frequency (RF) energy set by the Federal
Communications Commission of the U.S.
Government.
Preface
Products with the mark comply with the Radio
& Telecommunication Terminal Equipment
Directive (1999/5/EEC), the Electromagnetic
Compatibility Directive (89/336/EEC) and the
Low Voltage Directive (73/23/EEC) - as
amended by Directive 93/68/ECC - issued by
the Commission of the European Community.
RF Exposure Information
(SAR)
The exposure standard for wireless mobile
phones employs a unit of measurement known
as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The
SAR limit set by the FCC is 1.6W/kg. Tests for
SAR are conducted using standard operating
positions accepted by the FCC with the phone
transmitting at its highest certified power level
in all tested frequency bands. Although the
SAR is determined at the highest certified
power level, the actual SAR level of the phone
while operating can be well below the maximum
value. This is because the phone is designed to
operate at multiple power levels so as to use
only the power required to reach the network. In
general, the closer you are to a wireless base
station antenna, the lower the power output.
The highest SAR value for the model phone as
reported to the FCC when tested for use at the
ear is 0.193 W/kg and when worn on the body,
as described in this user guide, is 0.345 W/kg.
(Body-worn measurements differ among phone
models, depending upon avail-able enhancements and FCC requirements.)
iii
While there may be differences between the
SAR levels of various phones and at various
positions, they all meet the government
requirement.
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this model phone with all reported SAR
levels evaluated as in compliance with the FCC
RF exposure guidelines. SAR information on
this model phone is on file with the FCC and
can be found under the Display Grant section of
tap://www.fcc.gov/oet/fccid after searching on
FCC ID: MSQV66
For body worn operation, this phone has been
tested and meets the FCC RF exposure
guidelines for use with an accessory that
contains no metal and the positions the
handset a minimum of 1.5 cm from the body.
Use of other enhancements may not ensure
compliance with FCC RF exposure guidelines.
If you do not use a body-worn accessory and
are not holding the phone at the ear, position
the handset a minimum of 1.5 cm from your
body when the phone is switched on.
iv
Proper Disposal

that the product (electrical and electronic
equipment) should not be placed in municipal
waste. Please check local regulations for
disposal of electronic products.

suspension or denial of cellular telephone
services to the offender, legal action or
both.
• Do not use the phone or phone equipment
when at a refueling point.
• Observe restrictions on the use of radio
equipment in fuel depots, chemical plants,
or where blasting operations are in
progress.
• The use of the Alert device to operate a
vehicle’s lights or horn on public roads is
not permitted.
You MUST exercise proper control of your
vehicle at all times. Observe the following
safety precautions when driving:
• When driving, find a safe place to stop the
vehicle before using the phone.
• Do not speak into a hands-free microphone if it will distract you from driving.
• You MUST NOT stop on the hard shoulder
of a motorway to answer or make a call,
except in an emergency.
Preface
• This equipment is intended for use with
power supplied from supplied battery
charger(s) and/or power supply unit(s).
Other usage will invalidate any certification
given to this apparatus and may be
dangerous.
• Do not use a hand-held telephone or
microphone while you are driving.
• The radio equipment should be connected
to the antenna via a non-radiating cable
(e.g. coaxial cable). The antenna must be
mounted in a position such that no part of
the human body will normally rest close to
any part of the antenna unless there is an
intervening metallic screen, such as a
metallic roof.
NOTES:
• In some areas where electric current is
unstable, it is recommended that you plug
the charger to an AVR (AC Voltage
Regulator) instead of direct connection to
a power outlet. Unstable power current
may damage the charger and / or the

method. It uses a built-in dictionary to predict
the word you are typing. You can choose the
correct word by pressing the keys repetitively
and scrolling through the words suggested by
the phone. By reducing the number of
keystrokes, the smart text entry method helps
some users to type messages more quickly.
