earSmart
Sharp FX PLUS features earSmart™, an intelligent voice processor that delivers a clear voice
experience, allowing you to hear and be heard™ in nearly all the environment. earSmart technology uses the science of
human hearing to distinguish sounds, identify your voice and suppress surrounding noise, for clear conversations just
about anywhere.
How Does it Work?
ⰺThe earSmart voice processor in your Sharp FX PLUS captures your voice and all the sounds around you.
ⰺWorking like the human ear, it processes and distinguishes these sounds, isolates your voice conversation, and removes
background noise – from both ends of a call.
ⰺIt also automatically equalizes and adjusts voice volume so you can hear and talk naturally, even in the noisiest places.
ⰺWith earSmart technology, you can talk where you want, and have clear conversations for mobile calls, video chats,
even speakerphone calls, without worrying about surrounding noise.

Failure to follow these instructions could lead to serious personal injury and possible property damage.
Electronic devices
Your wireless handheld portable telephone is a low power radio transmitter and receiver. When it is ON, it receives and also
sends out radio frequency (RF) signals.
Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from RF energy. However, certain electronic equipment may not be
shielded against the RF signals from your wireless phone. Therefore, use of your Sharp FX PLUS must be restricted in
certain situations.
Pacemakers
The Health Industry Manufacturers Association recommends that a minimum separation of six (6) inches be maintained
between a handheld wireless phone and a pacemaker to avoid potential interference with the pacemaker. These
recommendations are consistent with the independent research and recommendations of Wireless Technology Research.
Never come closer than six (6) inches to a person with a heart pacemaker implant when using your Sharp FX PLUS. Doing
so could result in interference with the function of the pacemaker.
Persons with pacemakers:
ALWAYS keep the phone more than six (6) inches from your pacemaker when the phone is turned on.
ⰺ
ⰺDo not carry the phone in a breast pocket.
Use the ear opposite the pacemaker to minimize the potential for interference.
ⰺ
If you have any reason to suspect that interference is taking place, turn your Sharp FX PLUS OFF immediately.

Hearing AIDS
Some digital wireless phones may interfere with some hearing aids. In the event of such interference, you may want to
consult your service provider (or call the customer service line to discuss alternatives).
Other medical devices
If you use any other personal medical device, consult the manufacturer of your device to determine if they are adequately
shielded from external RF energy. Your physician may be able to assist you in obtaining this information.
Hospitals and health care facilities
Turn your Sharp FX PLUS OFF in health care facilities when any regulations posted in these areas instruct you to do so.
Hospitals or healthcare facilities may be using equipment that could be sensitive to external RF energy.
Vehicles
RF signals may affect improperly installed or inadequately shielded electronic systems in motor vehicles. Check with the
manufacturer or its representative regarding your vehicle. You should also consult the manufacturer of any equipment that
has been added to your vehicle.
Posted facilities
Turn your Sharp FX PLUS OFF where posted notices so require.
Aircraft
FCC regulations prohibit using your Sharp FX PLUS while in the air. Turn your phone OFF before boarding an aircraft. Always
request and obtain prior consent and approval of an authorized airline representative before using your phone aboard
an aircraft. Always follow the instructions of the airline representative whenever using your phone aboard an aircraft, to
prevent any possible interference with airborne electronic equipment.
Blasting areas
To avoid interfering with blasting operations, turn your Sharp FX PLUS OFF when in a “blasting area“ or in areas posted
“Turn off two-way radio“. Obey all signs and instructions.
Potentially explosive atmospheres
Turn your Sharp FX PLUS OFF when in any area with a potentially explosive atmosphere and obey all signs and instructions.
Sparks in such areas could cause an explosion or fire resulting in bodily injury or even death.
Areas with a potentially explosive atmosphere are often, but not always, clearly marked. They include fueling areas such
as gas stations: below deck on boats: fuel or chemical transfer or storage facilities: vehicles using liquefied petroleum gas
(such as propane or butane): areas where the air contains chemicals or particles, such as grain, dust, or metal powders:
and any other area where you would normally be advised to turn off your vehicle’s engine.

Hearing AID Compatibility with Mobile Phones
When some mobile phones are used near some hearing devices (hearing aids and cochlear implants), users may detect a
buzzing, humming, or whining noise. Some hearing devices are more immune than others to this interference noise, and
phones also vary in the amount of interference they generate.
The wireless telephone industry has developed ratings for some of their mobile phones, to assist hearing device users in
finding phones that may be compatible with their hearing devices. Not all phones have been rated. Phones that are rated
have the rating on their box or a label on the box.
The ratings are not guarantees. Results will vary depending on the user’s hearing device and hearing loss. If your hearing
device happens to be vulnerable to interference, you may not be able to use a rated phone successfully. Trying out the
phone with your hearing device is the best way to evaluate it for your personal needs.
M-Ratings: Phones rated M3 or M4 meet FCC requirements and are likely to generate less interference to hearing devices
than phones that are not labeled. M4 is the better/higher of the two ratings.
T-Ratings: Phones rated T3 or T4 meet FCC requirements and are likely to be more usable with a hearing device’s telecoil
(“T Switch” or “Telephone Switch”) than unrated phones. T4 is the better/higher of the two ratings. (Note that not all
hearing devices have telecoils in them.)
This phone has been tested and rated for use with hearing aids for some of the wireless technologies that it uses. However,
there may be some newer wireless technologies used in this phone that have not been tested yet for use with hearing aids.
It is important to try the different features of this phone thoroughly and in different locations, using your hearing aid or
cochlear implant, to determine if you hear any interfering noise. Consult your service provider or the manufacturer of this
phone for information on hearing aid compatibility. If you have questions about return or exchange policies, consult your
service provider or phone retailer.
Hearing devices may also be measured for immunity to this type of interference. Your hearing device manufacturer or
hearing health professional may help you find results for your hearing device.
The more immune your hearing aid is, the less likely you are to experience interference noise from mobile phones.
Safety Information for FCC RF Exposure
Read this information before using your Sharp FX PLUS.
In August 1996 the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) of the United States with its action in Report and Order FCC
96-326 adopted an updated safety standard for human exposure to radio frequency electromagnetic energy emitted by FCC
regulated transmitters. Those guidelines are consistent with the safety standard previously set by both U.S. and international
standards bodies. The design of this phone complies with the FCC guidelines and these international standards.
Body-worn operation
This device was tested for typical body-worn operations with the back of the phone kept 2.0 cm from the body. To
maintain compliance with FCC RF exposure requirements, use only belt-clips, holsters or similar accessories that maintain
a 2.0 cm separation distance between the user’s body and the back of the phone, including the antenna. The use of beltclips, holsters and similar accessories should not contain metallic components in its assembly. The use of accessories that
do not satisfy these requirements may not comply with FCC RF exposure requirements, and should be avoided.
For more information about RF exposure, please visit the FCC website at www.fcc.gov.
119
SAR Information
This model phone meets the government’s requirements for exposure to radio waves.
Your wireless phone is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed and manufactured not to exceed the emission limits
for exposure to radiofrequency (RF) energy set by the Federal Communications Commission of the U.S. Government. These
limits are part of comprehensive guidelines and establish permitted levels of RF energy for the general population. The
guidelines are based on standards that were developed by independent scientific organizations through periodic and
thorough evaluation of scientific studies. The standards include a substantial safety margin designed to assure the safety
of all persons, regardless of age and health.
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 1.6 W/kg. * Tests for SAR are conducted 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. Before a phone model is available for sale
to the public, it must be tested and certified to the FCC that it does not exceed the limit established by the government
adopted requirement for safe exposure.
The tests are performed in positions and locations (e.g., at the ear and worn on the body) as required by the FCC for each
model. While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various phones and at various positions, they all meet
the government requirement for safe exposure.

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 http:// www.fcc.gov/oet/fccid after searching on APYNAR0074.
Additional information on Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) can be found on the Cellular Telecommunications & Internet
Association (CTIA) website at http://www.phonefacts.net.
* In the United States and Canada, the SAR limit for mobile phones used by the public is 1.6 watts/kg (W/kg) averaged
over one gram of tissue.
The standard incorporates a substantial margin of safety to give additional protection for the public and to account for any
variations in measurements.

FDA Consumer Update
U.S. Food and Drug Administration Cell Phone Facts Consumer Information on Wireless Phones
1. What kinds of phones are the subjects of this update?
The term “wireless phone“ refers here to handheld wireless phones with built-in antennas, often called “cell,”“mobile,” or
“PCS“ phones.
These types of wireless phones can expose the user to measurable radiofrequency energy (RF) because of the short
distance between the phone and the user’s head. These RF exposures are limited by Federal Communications Commission
safety guidelines that were developed with the advice of FDA and other federal health and safety agencies.
When the phone is located at greater distances from the user, the exposure to RF is drastically lower because a person’s
RF exposure decreases rapidly with increasing distance from the source. The so-called “cordless phones,” which have a
base unit connected to the telephone wiring in a house, typically operate at far lower power levels, and thus produce RF
exposures well within the FCC’s compliance limits.
2. Do wireless phones pose a health hazard?
The available scientific evidence does not show that any health problems are associated with using wireless phones. There
is no proof, however, that wireless phones are absolutely safe. Wireless phones emit low levels of radiofrequency energy
(RF) in the microwave range while being used. They also emit very low levels of RF when in the standby mode. Whereas
high levels of RF can produce health effects (by heating tissue), exposure to low level RF that does not produce heating
effects causes no known adverse health effects.
Many studies of low level RF exposures have not found any biological effects. Some studies have suggested that some
biological effects may occur, but such findings have not been confirmed by additional research.
In some cases, other researchers have had difficulty in reproducing those studies, or in determining the reasons for
inconsistent results.
3 . What is FDA’s role concerning the safety of wireless phones?
Under the law, FDA does not review the safety of radiation-emitting consumer products such as wireless phones before
they can be sold, as it does with new drugs or medical devices. However, the agency has authority to take action if wireless
phones are shown to emit radiofrequency energy (RF) at a level that is hazardous to the user. In such a case, FDA could
require the manufacturers of wireless phones to notify users of the health hazard and to repair, replace or recall the phones
so that the hazard no longer exists.
Although the existing scientific data do not justify FDA regulatory actions, FDA has urged the wireless phone industry to
take a number of steps, including the following:
Support needed research into possible biological effects of RF of the type emitted by wireless phones:
ⰺ
Design wireless phones in a way that minimizes any RF exposure to the user that is not necessary for device function: and
ⰺ
Cooperate in providing users of wireless phones with the best possible information on possible effects of wireless phone
ⰺ
use on human health
FDA belongs to an interagency working group of the federal agencies that have responsibility for different aspects of RF
safety to ensure coordinated efforts at the federal level. The following agencies belong to this working group:
National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health
ⰺ
Environmental Protection Agency
ⰺ
Federal Communications Commission
ⰺ
121
Occupational Safety and Health Administration
ⰺ
National Telecommunications and Information Administration
ⰺ
The National Institutes of Health participates in some interagency working group activities, as well.
FDA shares regulatory responsibilities for wireless phones with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). All phones
that are sold in the United States must comply with FCC safety guidelines that limit RF exposure. FCC relies on FDA and
other health agencies for safety questions about wireless phones.
FCC also regulates the base stations that the wireless phone networks rely upon. While these base stations operate at
higher power than do the wireless phones themselves, the RF exposures that people get from these base stations are
typically thousands of times lower than those they can get from wireless phones. Base stations are thus not the primary
subject of the safety questions discussed in this document.
4. What are the results of the research done already?
The research done thus far has produced conflicting results, and many studies have suffered from flaws in their research
methods. Animal experiments investigating the effects of radiofrequency energy (RF) exposures characteristic of wireless
phones have yielded conflicting results that often cannot be repeated in other laboratories. A few animal studies, however,
have suggested that low levels of RF could accelerate the development of cancer in laboratory animals.
However, many of the studies that showed increased tumor development used animals that had been genetically
engineered or treated with cancer-causing chemicals so as to be pre-disposed to develop cancer in the absence of RF
exposure. Other studies exposed the animals to RF for up to 22 hours per day. These conditions are not similar to the
conditions under which people use wireless phones, so we don’t know with certainty what the results of such studies
mean for human health. Three large epidemiology studies have been published since December 2000. Between them,
the studies investigated any possible association between the use of wireless phones and primary brain cancer, glioma,
meningioma, or acoustic neuroma, tumors of the brain or salivary gland, leukemia, or other cancers. None of the studies
demonstrated the existence of any harmful health effects from wireless phone RF exposures. However, none of the studies
can answer questions about long-term exposures, since the average period of phone use in these studies was around three
years.
5. What research is needed to decide whether RF exposure from wireless phones poses a health risk?
A combination of laboratory studies and epidemiological studies of people actually using wireless phones would provide
some of the data that are needed. Lifetime animal exposure studies could be completed in a few years. However, very
large numbers of animals would be needed to provide reliable proof of a cancer promoting effect if one exists.
Epidemiological studies can provide data that is directly applicable to human populations, but 10 or more years’ follow-up
may be needed to provide answers about some health effects, such as cancer. This is because the interval between the
time of exposure to a cancer-causing agent and the time tumors develop - if they do - may be many, many years.
The interpretation of epidemiological studies is hampered by difficulties in measuring actual RF exposure during day-today use of wireless phones. Many factors affect this measurement, such as the angle at which the phone is held, or which
model of phone is used.
6. What is FDA doing to find out more about the possible health effects of wireless phone RF?
FDA is working with the U.S. National Toxicology Program and with groups of investigators around the world to ensure that
high priority animal studies are conducted to address important questions about the effects of exposure to radiofrequency
energy (RF).
FDA has been a leading participant in the World Health Organization International Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) Project
since its inception in 1996. An influential result of this work has been the development of a detailed agenda of research
needs that has driven the establishment of new research programs around the world. The Project has also helped develop
a series of public information documents on EMF issues.
FDA and the Cellular Telecommunications & Internet Association (CTIA) have a formal Cooperative Research and
122
Development Agreement(CRADA) to do research on wireless phone safety. FDA provides the scientific oversight, obtaining
input from experts in government, industry, and academic organizations. CTIA-funded research is conducted through
contracts to independent investigators. The initial research will include both laboratory studies and studies of wireless
phone users. The CRADA will also include a broad assessment of additional research needs in the context of the latest
research developments around the world.
7. What steps can I take to reduce my exposure to radiofrequency energy from my wireless phone?
If there is a risk from these products--and at this point we do not know that there is--it is probably very small. But if
you are concerned about avoiding even potential risks, you can take a few simple steps to minimize your exposure to
radiofrequency energy (RF). Since time is a key factor in how much exposure a person receives, reducing the amount of
time spent using a wireless phone will reduce RF exposure.
If you must conduct extended conversations by wireless phone every day, you could place more distance between your
ⰺ
body and the source of the RF, since the exposure level drops off dramatically with distance. For example, you could use a
headset and carry the wireless phone away from your body or use a wireless phone connected to a remote antenna.
Again, the scientific data do not demonstrate that wireless phones are harmful. But if you are concerned about the RF
exposure from these products, you can use measures like those described above to reduce your RF exposure from wireless
phone use.
8. What about children using wireless phones?
The scientific evidence does not show a danger to users of wireless phones, including children and teenagers. If you want
to take steps to lower exposure to radiofrequency energy (RF), the measures described above would apply to children and
teenagers using wireless phones.
Reducing the time of wireless phone use and increasing the distance between the user and the RF source will reduce RF
exposure. Some groups sponsored by other national governments have advised that children be discouraged from using
wireless phones at all.
For example, the government in the United Kingdom distributed leaflets containing such a recommendation in December
2000. They noted that no evidence exists that using a wireless phone causes brain tumors or other ill effects. Their
recommendation to limit wireless phone use by children was strictly precautionary: it was not based on scientific evidence
that any health hazard exists.
9. Do hands-free kits for wireless phones reduce risks from exposure to RF emissions?
Since there are no known risks from exposure to RF emissions from wireless phones, there is no reason to believe that
hands-free kits reduce risks. Hands-free kits can be used with wireless phones for convenience and comfort. These systems
reduce the absorption of RF energy in the head because the phone, which is the source of the RF emissions, will not be
placed against the head. On the other hand, if the phone is mounted against the waist or other part of the body during
use, then that part of the body will absorb more RF energy. Wireless phones marketed in the U.S. are required to meet
safety requirements regardless of whether they are used against the head or against the body. Either configuration should
result in compliance with the safety limit.
10. Do wireless phone accessories that claim to shield the head from RF radiation work?
Since there are no known risks from exposure to RF emissions from wireless phones, there is no reason to believe that
accessories that claim to shield the head from those emissions reduce risks. Some products that claim to shield the user
from RF absorption use special phone cases, while others involve nothing more than a metallic accessory attached to the
phone.
Studies have shown that these products generally do not work as advertised. Unlike “hand-free“ kits, these so-called
“shields“ may interfere with proper operation of the phone. The phone may be forced to boost its power to compensate,
leading to an increase in RF absorption. In February 2002, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) charged two companies that
123
sold devices that claimed to protect wireless phone users from radiation with making false and unsubstantiated claims.
According to FTC, these defendants lacked a reasonable basis to substantiate their claim.
11. What about wireless phone interference with medical equipment?
Radiofrequency energy (RF) from wireless phones can interact with some electronic devices. For this reason, FDA helped
develop a detailed test method to measure electromagnetic interference (EMI) of implanted cardiac pacemakers and
defibrillators from wireless telephones. This test method is now part of a standard sponsored by the Association for the
Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI). The final draft, a joint effort by FDA, medical device manufacturers, and
many other groups, was completed in late 2000. This standard will allow manufacturers to ensure that cardiac pacemakers
and defibrillators are safe from wireless phone EMI.
FDA has tested hearing aids for interference from handheld wireless phones and helped develop a voluntary standard
sponsored by the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE). This standard specifies test methods and
performance requirements for hearing aids and wireless phones so that that no interference occurs when a person uses a
“compatible“ phone and a “compatible“ hearing aid at the same time. This standard was approved by the IEEE in 2000.
FDA continues to monitor the use of wireless phones for possible interactions with other medical devices. Should harmful
interference be found to occur, FDA will conduct testing to assess the interference and work to resolve the problem.

Emergency Calls
Never rely solely upon your wireless phone for essential communications (e.g., medical emergencies), if it can be avoided,
since a wireless phone requires a complex combination of radio signals, relay stations and landline networks for its
operation. Consequently, emergency calls may not always be possible under all conditions on all wireless phone systems.
Your wireless phone, however, may sometimes be the only available means of communication at the scene of an accident.
When making an emergency call, always give the recipient all necessary information as accurately as possible. Never
terminate an emergency call until you have received clearance to do so.
FCC enhanced 911 (E911) rules
Background
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) requires wireless carriers to transmit specific latitude and longitude
location (Automatic Location Identification = ALI) information as well as “911“ calls to Public Safety Answering Points
(PSAPs) to identify the location of the caller in case of emergency.
Generally, the rules require that carriers identify an E911 caller’s location within 50 meters of the actual location for 67
percent of calls and within 150 meters of the actual location for 95 percent of calls.
Sharp FX PLUS’s ALI Capability
The Sharp FX PLUS is an ALI-capable phone equipped with a GPS (Global Positioning System) receiver supporting a
satellite-based GPS ALI-capable network to comply with the FCC’s ALI requirements.
The network compliance with the above FCC requirements is dependent on: (a) the use of digital technology by the
wireless network: (b) GPS satellite signals being able to reach the handset (such transmissions do not always work indoors,
for example) : and (c) handset signals reaching wireless “base stations“ (atmospheric and environmental conditions may
cause variations in handset receiving signal strength).
Also the transmission of the ALI information is subject, in part, to system constraints within the wireless network to which
the E911 signal is transmitted and over which Sharp FX PLUS has no control.
Finally, customers are advised that the Sharp FX PLUS’s ALI capability is to be used for E911 purposes only.
This feature allows you to place an emergency call even if your phone is in “Phone Lock“ or “Restrict“ mode when you dial
the preprogrammed emergency number, 911, #911, or *911. It also operates in out-of-service areas. The phone maintains
the emergency mode until you press the Power/Lock key after disconnecting an emergency call. In emergency call mode,
the phone can receive an incoming call from any available system.
To call “911“ in “Phone Lock“ or “Restrict“ mode.
1. Tap Emergency call, and tap 911 in ICE-Emergency call list.
“911“ and “Emergency call“ will appear on the screen.
