Bluetooth
Bluetooth is a short-range wireless communications
technology capable of exchanging information over
a distance of about 10 m without requiring a physical
connection.
You do not need to line up the devices to beam
information with Bluetooth. If the devices are within range
of one another, you can exchange information between
them even if they are located in different rooms.
• Samsung is not responsible for the loss,
interception, or misuse of data sent or received via
the Bluetooth wireless feature.
• Always ensure that you share and receive data
with devices that are trusted and properly secured.
If there are obstacles between the devices, the
operating distance may be reduced.
• Some devices, especially those that are not
tested or approved by Bluetooth SIG, may be
incompatible with your phone.

• Never dispose of batteries or devices in a fire. Follow all local
regulations when disposing of used batteries or devices.
• Never place batteries or devices on or in heating devices, such as
microwave ovens, stoves, or radiators. Batteries may explode when
overheated.
• Never crush or puncture the battery. Avoid exposing the battery to
high external pressure, which can lead to an internal short circuit and
overheating.
Protect the device, batteries, and chargers from damage
• Avoid exposing your device and batteries to very cold or very hot
temperatures.
• Extreme temperatures can cause the deformation of the device and
reduce the charging capacity and life of your device and batteries.
• Prevent batteries from contacting metal objects, as this can create a
connection between the + and – terminals of your batteries and lead to
temporary or permanent battery damage.
• Never use a damaged charger or battery.

Never use your mobile device while driving, if it is prohibited by law. For
your safety and the safety of others, practice good common sense and
remember the following tips:
• Use a hands-free device.
84 Safety precautions
• Get to know your device and its convenience features, such as speed
dial and redial. These features help you reduce the time needed to
place or receive calls on your mobile device.
• Position your device within easy reach. Be able to access your wireless
device without removing your eyes from the road. If you receive an
incoming call at an inconvenient time, let your voice mail answer it
for you.
• Let the person you are speaking with know you are driving. Suspend
calls in heavy traffic or hazardous weather conditions. Rain, sleet, snow,
ice, and heavy traffic can be hazardous.
• Do not take notes or look up phone numbers. Jotting down a “to do”
list or flipping through your address book takes attention away from
your primary responsibility of driving safely.
• Dial sensibly and assess the traffic. Place calls when you are not moving
or before pulling into traffic. Try to plan calls when your car will be
stationary. If you need to make a call, dial only a few numbers, check
the road and your mirrors, then continue.
• Do not engage in stressful or emotional conversations that may be
distracting. Make people you are talking with aware you are driving
and suspend conversations that have the potential to divert your
attention from the road.
• Use your device to call for help. Dial a local emergency number in the
case of fire, traffic accident, or medical emergencies.
• Use your device to help others in emergencies. If you see an auto
accident, a crime in progress, or a serious emergency where lives are in
danger, call a local emergency number.
• Call roadside assistance or a special, non-emergency assistance
number when necessary. If you see a broken-down vehicle posing no
serious hazard, a broken traffic signal, a minor traffic accident where no
one appears injured, or a vehicle you know to be stolen, call roadside
assistance or another special, non-emergency number.

Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) certification
information
Your phone conforms to U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC)
standards that limit human exposure to radio frequency (RF) energy
emitted by radio and telecommunications equipment. These standards
prevent the sale of mobile phone that exceed a maximum exposure level
(known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR) of 1.6 W/kg.
In normal use, the actual SAR is likely to be much lower, as the phone has
been designed to emit only the RF energy necessary to transmit a signal
to the nearest base station. By automatically emitting lower levels when
possible, your phone reduces your overall exposure to RF energy.
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this model phone
based on the compliance of all reported SAR levels with the FCC RF
exposure guidelines. The authorisation can be found on the FCC Office of
Engineering and Technology website at http://www.fcc.gov/oet/ea.
