General Use
Communications Equipment such as Cellular Telephones and
Safeguards for Electronic Medical Equipment" (Electromagnetic
Compatibility Conference, April 1997) and "Report of
Investigation of the Effects of Radio Waves on Medical
Equipment, etc." (Association of Radio Industries and
Businesses, March 2001).
・If your USIM Card or handset (with USIM Card inserted) is
lost or stolen, suspend your service immediately. For details,
contact SoftBank Customer Support, General Information.
・SoftBank Mobile Corp. is not liable for any damages
resulting from accidental loss/alteration of handset/SD Card
files or settings. Keep separate copies of contacts and other
important information.
・Handset transmissions/One Seg reception may be disrupted
inside buildings, tunnels or underground, or when moving
into/out of such places; may affect calls or One Seg images/
video streams.
Persons with implanted pacemaker/defibrillator
should keep handset more than 15 cm away.
Radio waves may interfere with implanted pacemakers or
defibrillators.
・Use handset without disturbing others.
・Handsets are radios as stipulated by the Radio Law. Under
the Radio Law, handsets must be submitted for inspection
upon request.
・Handset use near landlines, TVs or radios may cause
interference.

transmissions may be overheard.
Eavesdropping
Deliberate/accidental interception of communications
constitutes eavesdropping.
・Beware of harmful/malicious websites. Take added care
when posting personal information.
・An export license may be required to carry handset into
other countries if it is to be used by or transferred to
another person. However, no such license is required when
taking handset abroad for personal use on a vacation or
business trip and then bringing it back. Export control
regulations in the United States provide that an export
license granted by the US government is required to carry
handset into Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan or Syria.

Safety Precautions
If it may not be possible to keep handset
15 cm away from other persons (e.g., in a
crowded situation where you cannot move

(e.g., by activating Airplane mode) or power
off beforehand. If an application that
automatically powers handset on is installed,
disable that feature before powering off.

The guidelines use a unit of measurement known as the

is subject to the following two conditions:
(1) This device may not cause harmful interference, and (2)
this device must accept any interference received, including
interference that may cause undesired operation.
Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the
manufacturer responsible for compliance could void the user's
authority to operate the equipment.
devices is 2.0 W/kg and the highest SAR value for this
device when tested at the ear was 0.414 W/kg*. As mobile
devices offer a range of functions, they can be used in
other positions, such as on the body as described in this
User Guide**. In this case, the highest tested SAR value is
0.417 W/kg***. As SAR is measured utilizing the device's
highest transmitting power the actual SAR of this device
while operating is typically below that indicated above. This
is due to automatic changes to the power level of the device
to ensure it only uses the minimum level required to reach the
network.
The World Health Organization has stated that present
scientific information does not indicate the need for any
special precautions for the use of mobile devices. They note
that if you want to reduce your exposure then you can do so
by limiting the length of calls or using a hands-free device to
keep the mobile phone away from the head and body.
*The tests are carried out in accordance with international
guidelines for testing.
**Please see "Electromagnetic Safety in Europe" for important
notes regarding body-worn operation.
***A method of measuring SAR when a mobile phone is used at
positions other than at the ear was established in March 2010
through an international standard (IEC62209-2). MIC technical
regulation was reported in October 2011 by the Information
and Communications Council.

FCC Information to User
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with
the limits of a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part
15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide
reasonable protection against harmful interference in a
residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and
can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and
used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful
interference to radio communications.
However, there is no guarantee that interference will not
occur in a particular installation; if this equipment does cause
harmful interference to radio or television reception, which
can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the
user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one
or more of the following measures:
1. Reorient/relocate the receiving antenna.
2. Increase the separation between the equipment and
receiver.
3. Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different
from that to which the receiver is connected.
4. Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician
for help.

FCC RF Exposure Information
Your handset is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is

Information
for exposure to radio frequency (RF) energy set by the Federal
Communications Commission of the U.S. Government.
The guidelines are based on standards that were developed
by independent scientific organization 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 handsets 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. 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.
The highest SAR value for this model handset as reported to
the FCC when tested for use at the ear is 0.49 W/kg, and
when worn on the body in a holder or carry case, is 0.38 W/kg.
Body-worn Operation; This device was tested for typical
body-worn operations with the back of the handset kept
1.0 cm from the body. To maintain compliance with FCC RF
exposure requirements, use accessories that maintain a 1.0
cm separation distance between the user's body and the back
of the handset. 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. The FCC has granted an Equipment
Authorization for this model handset with all reported SAR
levels evaluated as in compliance with the FCC RF emission
guidelines. SAR information on this model handset is on
file with the FCC and can be found under the Display Grant
section of http://www.fcc.gov/oet/ea/ after searching on FCC
ID APYHRO00193.

RF Exposure Information/Specific
Absorption Rate (SAR) Information
This mobile phone SoftBank 205SH meets the MIC's****
technical regulation for exposure to radio waves.
The technical regulation* established permitted levels of
radio frequency energy, based on standards developed by
independent scientific organizations through periodic and
thorough evaluation of scientific studies.
The regulation employs a unit of measurement known as the
Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR.
The SAR limit is 2 watts/kilogram (W/kg)** averaged over ten
grams of tissue.
The limit includes a substantial safety margin designed to
assure the safety of all persons, regardless of age and health.
The value of the limit is equal to the international guidelines
recommended by ICNIRP*****.
The highest SAR value for this mobile phone is 0.510 W/kg
when tested for use at the ear.
While there may be differences between the SAR levels of
various phones and at various positions, all phones meet MIC's
technical regulation.
Although the SAR is determined at the highest certified power
level, the actual SAR of the phone during operation can be
well below the maximum value.
Use at positions other than at the ear
This mobile phone may be used at positions other than at the
ear. By using an accessory such as a belt clip holster that
maintains a 1.5 cm separation with no metal (parts) between
the body and the mobile phone, this mobile phone will comply
with international guidelines for radio wave protection (***).
The World Health Organization has announced that "A large
number of studies have been performed over the last two
decades to assess whether mobile phones pose a potential
health risk. To date, no adverse health effects have been
established as being caused by mobile phone use."
