Getting your device ready
Installing the SIM card and battery
Before you can make a phone call using your P750, you need to install a Subscriber
Identity Module (SIM) card. The SIM card contains your phone number, subscriber details,
phonebook, and additional phone memory.
Your P750 comes with a rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery.
New batteries come partially discharged and should be fully charged before using them. They
generally do not reach their rated capacity until they have been charged and discharged at
least four (4) times. We recommend that new batteries be charged overnight even though
they may indicate that the charge is complete after a few hours. Sometimes charging may
stop during the initial charge and it is necessary to remove the battery for approximately
fifteen (15) minutes and then recharge it.
CAUTION:
Use only an ASUS qualified battery.
To install a SIM card and battery:
1. Remove the battery compartment cover.

RF Exposure information (SAR)
THIS MODEL MEETS INTERNATIONAL GUIDELINES FOR EXPOSURE TO RADIO WAVES
Your mobile device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed not to exceed the limits
for exposure to radio waves recommended by international guidelines. These guidelines were
developed by the independent scientific organization ICNIRP and include safety margins
designed to assure the protection of all persons, regardless of age and health.
The guidelines use a unit of measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR.
The ICNIRP SAR limit for mobile devices used by the general public is 2 W/kg and the highest
SAR value for this device when tested at the ear was 0.581 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 0.962 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.
While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various phones and at various
positions, they all meet the governmental requirements for safe exposure. Please note
that improvements to this product model could cause differences in the SAR value for later
products; in all cases, products are designed to be within the guidelines.
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
‘handsfree’ device to keep the mobile phone away from the head and body.
177
Additional Information can be found on the websites of the World Health Organization
(http://www.who.int/emf).
* The tests are carried out in accordance with international guidelines for testing. The limit incorporates a
substantial margin for safety to give additional protection for the public and to account for any variations
in measurements. Additional related information includes the ASUS testing protocol, assessment
procedure, and measurement uncertainty range for this product.
178
Safety information
Phone care
You should never attempt to open the phone casing. There are no user-serviceable parts
inside and you might damage sensitive electronic circuits and components. Unauthorized
disassembly will void the warranty.
You should never leave your phone in the window of your car or otherwise expose it to
strong sunlight or excessive heat for a prolonged period. This may damage it.
You should never handle your phone with wet hands or expose it to moisture or liquids of
any kind. Continuous changes from a cold to a warm environment may lead to condensation
inside the phone, resulting in corrosion and possible damage.
If you pack your phone in your suitcase during travel, beware of damage. Cramming a
suitcase may crack the LCD display. Remember to switch off your wireless connections during
air travel.
As with all other radio devices, touching the built-in antenna area during telephone
conversation may impair the quality and lead to shorter standby time due to increased power
consumption.
The battery
Your phone is equipped with a high-performance Li-Ion battery. Optional battery types may be
available; check with your local retailer. Observe the maintenance guidelines and your battery
should give you a long service life.
179
•At the beginning of the battery’s life, fully charge and discharge (let it go flat) three times.
•Do not overcharge the Li-Ion battery, as this can result in a reduction in battery
performance and lifespan. The recommended maximum charge time is three hours.
•Avoid repeated short charging. It is preferable to let the battery go flat and then recharge
it completely.
•Avoid charging in strong heat or extreme cold. Ambient room temperature is preferable.
The battery has its optimum performance in an ambient temperature of +5 °C to
+50 °C.
•Don’t store a battery near a fire or heat source.
• Use only the battery approved by the manufacturer.
• Never replace the battery with a non-approved battery.
• Never soak the battery in water or any other fluid.
• Never try to open the battery as it contains substances that might be harmful if
swallowed or allowed to come into contact with unprotected skin.
• Never short-circuit the battery, as it may overheat and cause a fire. Keep it away from
jewellery and other metal objects.
• Never dispose of the battery in a fire. It could explode and release harmful substances
into the environment.
• Never dispose of the battery with your regular household waste. Take it to a hazardous
material collection point.
• Do not touch the battery terminals.
180
The charger
• Use only the charger supplied with your phone.
• Never pull the charger cord to release it from the mains – pull the charger itself.
WARNING!
There is a risk of explosion if the battery is replaced by an incorrect type.
Memory card
• Do not remove or insert a memory card or turn off the handset while data on the card is
being edited.
• Do not touch the metal terminals with your hands or metal objects.
• Do not bend the memory card or subject it to violent impacts. Keep it away from water and

(not wet) cloth. Use a cotton swab to clean the camera lens. Allow the phone to dry
completely before switching it on. Never use solvents for cleaning.
• If you are not going to use your phone for some time, fully charge the battery and store
the phone in a dry place away from direct sunlight. Your phone should be switched off during storage. Recharge every 6 to 12 months.
181
• Never expose your phone to heat or strong sunlight.
• Never expose your phone to moisture or liquids of any kind.
• Do not paint your phone or otherwise block the keypad, microphone or earpiece function,
i.e. with stickers.
WARNING!
Failure to follow these instructions may lead to serious personal injury and possible property damage.
Driving safety
Never use the handheld phones while driving. It is an offence while driving to hold a phone
or cradle it in your neck, at any point during the setup, making or taking of a phone call, text
message or any other data related mobile communication. Use of fully installed car kits are
still permitted, as are the use of alternate handsfree accessories.
In the interest of safety, we would recommend the use of a cradle while using any form of
handsfree accessory.
While driving, we recommend that you use voicemail wherever possible, and that you listen to
your messages when you are not in the car. If you must make a handsfree call when driving,
keep it brief.
An airbag inflates with great force. Do not place objects, including both installed or portable
wireless equipment, in the area over the airbag or in the airbag deployment area. If in-vehicle
wireless equipment is improperly installed and the air bag inflates, serious injury could result.
182
Electronic devices
Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from RF energy.
However, certain electronic equipment may not be shielded against the RF signals from your
Pocket PC phone.
Pacemakers
The Health Industry Manufacturers’ Association recommends that a minimum separation of six
(6”) inches be maintained between a phone and a pacemaker to avoid potential interference
with the pacemaker. These recommendations are consistent with the independent research
by and recommendations of Wireless Technology Research.
If you have a pacemaker:
• Always keep your phone more than six inches from your pacemaker when turned on.
• Do not carry your phone in a breast pocket.
• Use the ear opposite the pacemaker to minimize the potential for interference
• If you have any reason to suspect that interference is taking place, turn your phone off
immediately.
Hearing aids
Some digital phones may interfere with some hearing aids. In the event of such interference,
call ASUS Customer Service to discuss alternatives.
183
Other medical devices
If you use any other personal medical device, consult the manufacturer of your device to
determine if it is adequately shielded from external RF energy. Your physician may be able to
assist you in obtaining this information.
Turn your phone off in healthcare 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 added to your vehicle.
Posted facilities
Turn your phone off where posted notices so require.
Magnetic media
Magnetic fields generated by Pocket PC Phone phones may damage data on magnetic
storage media, such as credit cards, computer discs or tapes. Do not place your phone next
to such media.
You should never expose your phone to strong magnetic fields as this may cause temporary
malfunction.
184
Other Safety Guidelines
Aircraft
Regulations prohibit using your phone while in the air. Switch off your phone before boarding
