Exposure to Radio Frequency (RF) Signals
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has
published information for consumers relating to Radio
Frequency (RF) exposure from wireless phones. The
FDA publication includes the following information:
Do cell phones pose a health hazard?
Many people are concerned that cell phone radiation
will cause cancer or other serious health hazards. The
weight of scientific evidence has not linked cell
phones with any health problems.
Cell phones emit low levels of Radio Frequency (RF)
energy. Over the past 15 years, scientists have
conducted hundreds of studies looking at the
biological effects of the radio frequency energy
emitted by cell phones. While some researchers have
reported biological changes associated with RF
energy, these studies have failed to be replicated. The
majority of studies published have failed to show an
association between exposure to radio frequency
from a cell phone and health problems.
The low levels of RF cell phones emit while in use are
in the microwave frequency range. They also emit RF
at substantially reduced time intervals when in the
stand-by 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.
The biological effects of radio frequency energy
should not be confused with the effects from other
types of electromagnetic energy.
Very high levels of electromagnetic energy, such as is
found in X-rays and gamma rays, can ionize
biological tissues. Ionization is a process where
electrons are stripped away from their normal
locations in atoms and molecules. It can permanently
damage biological tissues including DNA, the genetic
material.
The energy levels associated with radio frequency
energy, including both radio waves and microwaves,
are not great enough to cause ionization of atoms and
molecules. Therefore, RF energy is a type of
non-ionizing radiation. Other types of non-ionizing
radiation include visible light, infrared radiation (heat),
and other forms of electromagnetic radiation with
relatively low frequencies.
While RF energy does not ionize particles, large
amounts can increase body temperatures and cause
tissue damage. Two areas of the body, the eyes and
the testes, are particularly vulnerable to RF heating
because there is relatively little blood flow in them to
carry away excess heat.
Research Results to Date: Is there a connection between RF and certain
health problems?
The results of most studies conducted to date say no.
In addition, attempts to replicate and confirm the few
studies that have shown a connection have failed.
The scientific community at large therefore believes
that the weight of scientific evidence does not show
an association between exposure to Radio Frequency
(RF) from cell phones and adverse health outcomes.
Still the scientific community has supported additional
research to address gaps in knowledge. Some of
these studies are described below.

Interphone Study
Interphone is a large international study designed to
determine whether cell phones increase the risk of
head and neck cancer. A report published in the
International Journal of Epidemiology (June, 2010)
compared cell phone usage for more than 5,000
people with brain tumors (glioma and meningioma)
and a similar number of healthy controls.
Results of this study did NOT show that cell phones
caused brain cancer. In this study, most people had
no increased risk of brain cancer from using cell
phones. For people with the heaviest use of cell
phones (an average of more than ½ hour per day,
every day, for over 10 years) the study suggested a
slight increase in brain cancer. However, the authors
determined that biases and errors prevented any
conclusions being drawn from this data. Additional
information about Interphone can be found at 
http://www.iarc.fr/en/media-centre/pr/2010/pdfs/
pr200_E.pdf.

Interphone is the largest cell phone study to date, but
it did not answer all questions about cell phone safety.
Additional research is being conducted around the
world, and the FDA continues to monitor
developments in this field.
International Cohort Study on Mobile Phone Users (COSMOS)
The COSMOS study aims to conduct long-term
health monitoring of a large group of people to
determine if there are any health issues linked to
long-term exposure to radio frequency energy from
cell phone use. The COSMOS study will follow
approximately 300,000 adult cell phone users in
Europe for 20 to 30 years. Additional information
about the COSMOS study can be found at

Risk of Brain Cancer from Exposure to Radio Frequency Fields in Childhood
and Adolescence (MOBI-KIDS)

European and non-European countries. Additional

Surveillance, Epidemiology, and EndResults (SEER)Program of the National
Cancer Institute
The National Cancer Institute (NCI) actively follows
cancer statistics in the United States to detect any
change in rates of new cases for brain cancer. If cell
phones play a role in risk for brain cancer, rates
should go up, because heavy cell phone use has
been common for quite some time in the U.S.
Between 1987 and 2005, the overall age-adjusted
incidence of brain cancer did not increase. Additional

Cell Phone Industry Actions
Although the existing scientific data do not justify FDA
regulatory actions, the FDA has urged the cell phone
industry to take a number of steps, including the
following:
• Support-needed research on possible biological
effects of RF for the type of signal emitted by cell
phones;
• Design cell phones in a way that minimizes any RF
exposure to the user; and
• Cooperate in providing users of cell phones with the
current information on cell phone use and human
health concerns.
The FDA also is working with voluntary
standard-setting bodies such as the Institute of
Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the
International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation
Protection (ICNIRP), and others to assure that safety
standards continue to adequately protect the public.
Reducing Exposure: Hands-Free Kits and Other
Accessories
Steps to Reduce Exposure to Radio Frequency Energy

frequency energy (RF) from cell phones - 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 RF exposure.
• Reduce the amount of time spent using your cell phone;
kits can be used for convenience and comfort. They
are also required by law in many states if you want to
use your phone while driving.
Cell Phone Accessories that Claim to Shield the Head from RF Radiation
• Use speaker mode or a headset to place more distance
between your head and the cell phone.
Because there are no known risks from exposure to
RF emissions from cell phones, there is no reason to
believe that accessories which 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.
Hands-Free Kits
Hands-free kits may include audio or Bluetooth®
headsets and various types of body-worn accessories
such as belt-clips and holsters. Combinations of these
can be used to reduce RF energy absorption from cell
phones.
Headsets can substantially reduce exposure because
the phone is held away from the head in the user's
hand or in approved body-worn accessories. Cell
phones marketed in the U.S. are required to meet RF
exposure compliance requirements when used
against the head and against the body.
Because there are no known risks from exposure to
RF emissions from cell phones, there is no reason to
believe that hands-free kits reduce risks. Hands-free

Studies have shown that these products generally do
not work as advertised. Unlike “hands-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.
Children and Cell Phones
The scientific evidence does not show a danger to
any users of cell phones from RF exposure, including
children and teenagers. The steps adults can take to
reduce RF exposure apply to children and teenagers
as well.
• Reduce the amount of time spent on the cell phone;
• Use speaker mode or a headset to place more distance
between the head and the cell phone.
Some groups sponsored by other national
governments have advised that children be
discouraged from using cell phones at all. For
example, The Stewart Report from the United
Kingdom made such a recommendation in
December 2000. In this report, a group of
independent experts noted that no evidence exists
that using a cell phone causes brain tumors or other
ill effects. Their recommendation to limit cell phone
use by children was strictly precautionary; it was not
based on scientific evidence that any health hazard
exists.

Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) Certification
Information
Your wireless phone is a radio transmitter and
receiver. It is designed and manufactured not to
exceed the exposure limits for Radio Frequency (RF)
energy set by the Federal Communications
Commission (FCC) of the U.S. Government.
These FCC RF exposure limits are derived from the
recommendations of two expert organizations: the
National Council on Radiation Protection and
Measurement (NCRP) and the Institute of Electrical
and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). In both cases, the
recommendations were developed by scientific and
engineering experts drawn from industry, government,
and academia after extensive reviews of the scientific
literature related to the biological effects of RF energy.
163
2C. Settings
The RF exposure limit set by the FCC for wireless
mobile phones employs a unit of measurement
known as the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR). The
SAR is a measure of the rate of absorption of RF
energy by the human body expressed in units of watts
per kilogram (W/kg). The FCC requires wireless
phones to comply with a safety limit of 1.6 watts per
kilogram (1.6 W/kg).
The FCC SAR limit incorporates a substantial margin
of safety to give additional protection to the public and
to account for any variations in measurements.
SAR tests 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 reported 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 of the phone.
Before a new model phone is available for sale to the
public, it must be tested and certified to the FCC that it
does not exceed the SAR limit established by the
FCC. Tests for each model phone are performed in
positions and locations (e.g. at the ear and worn on
the body) as required by the FCC. For body-worn
operation, this phone has been tested and meets
FCC RF exposure guidelines when used with an
accessory that contains no metal and that positions
the mobile device a minimum of 1.5 cm from the
body.
Use of other accessories may not ensure compliance
with FCC RF exposure guidelines. The FCC has
granted an Equipment Authorization for this mobile
device with all reported SAR levels evaluated as in
compliance with the FCC RF exposure guidelines.
The maximum SAR values for this model phone as
reported in the FCC equipment authorization are:
PCS mode (Part 24):
Head: 0.98 W/Kg
䢇 Body: 0.72 W/Kg
䢇
SAR information on this and other model phones can
be accessed online on the FCC's website through
http://transition.fcc.gov/oet/rfsafety/sar.html. To find
information that pertains to a particular model phone,
this site uses the phone FCC ID number which is
usually printed somewhere on the case of the phone.
Sometimes it may be necessary to remove the battery
pack to find the number. Once you have the FCC ID
number for a particular phone, follow the instructions
on the website and it should provide values for typical
or maximum SAR for a particular phone. Additional
SAR information can also be obtained at 

Smart Practices While Driving
On the Road - Off the Phone
The primary responsibility of every driver is the safe
operation of his or her vehicle.
Responsible drivers understand that no secondary
task should be performed while driving whether it be
eating, drinking, talking to passengers, or talking on a
mobile phone - unless the driver has assessed the
driving conditions and is confident that the secondary
task will not interfere with their primary responsibility.
Do not engage in any activity while driving a moving
vehicle which may cause you to take your eyes off the
road or become so absorbed in the activity that your
ability to concentrate on the act of driving becomes
impaired. Samsung is committed to promoting
responsible driving and giving drivers the tools they
need to understand and address distractions.
Check the laws and regulations on the use of mobile
devices and their accessories in the areas where you
drive. Always obey them. The use of these devices may be
prohibited or restricted in certain areas. For example, only
hands-free use may be permitted in certain areas.
Before answering calls, consider your circumstances.
Let the call go to voicemail when driving conditions
require. Remember, driving comes first, not the call!
If you consider a call necessary and appropriate,
follow these tips:
• Use a hands-free device;
• Place calls when you are not moving;
• Plan calls when your car will be stationary;
• Do not engage in stressful or emotional conversations;
• Let the person with whom you are speaking know that you
are driving and will suspend the call if necessary;
• Do not take notes or look up phone numbers while driving;
Notice regarding legal restrictions on mounting this

Battery Use and Safety
Important! Handle and store batteries properly to avoid
injury or damage. Most battery issues arise
from improper handling of batteries and,
particularly, from the continued use of
damaged batteries.
• Do not disassemble, crush, puncture, shred, or
otherwise attempt to change the form of your battery. Do
not put a high degree of pressure on the battery. This can
cause leakage or an internal short-circuit, resulting in
overheating.
• Do not let the phone or battery come in contact with
liquids. Liquids can get into the phone's circuits, leading
to corrosion. Even when the phone appears to be dry and
appears to operate normally, the circuitry could slowly
corrode and pose a safety hazard. If the phone and/or
battery get wet, have them checked by your service
provider or contact Samsung, even if they appear to be
working properly.
• Do not place your battery in or near a heat source.
Excessive heating can damage the phone or the battery
and could cause the phone or the battery to explode. Do
not dry a wet or damp battery with an appliance or heat
source such as a microwave oven, hair dryer, iron, or
radiator. Avoid leaving your phone in your car in high
temperatures.
• Do not dispose of the phone or the battery in a fire. The
phone or the battery may explode when overheated.
• Do not handle a damaged or leaking battery. Do not let
leaking battery fluid come in contact with your eyes, skin
or clothing. For safe disposal options, contact your nearest
Samsung-authorized service center.
167
2C. Settings
• Avoid dropping the cell phone. Dropping the phone or the
battery, especially on a hard surface, can potentially cause
damage to the phone and battery. If you suspect damage
to the phone or battery, take it to a service center for
inspection.
• Never use any charger or battery that is damaged in any
way.
• Do not allow the battery to touch metal objects. Accidental
short-circuiting can occur when a metallic object (coin,
key, jewelry, clip, or pen) causes a direct connection
between the + and - terminals of the battery (metal strips
on the battery), for example when you carry a spare
battery in a pocket or bag. Short-circuiting the terminals
may damage the battery or the object causing the
short-circuiting.
Important: Use only Samsung-approved batteries, and
Samsung-approved chargers which are
specifically designed for your phone.
WARNING!
Use of a non-Samsung-approved battery or charger may
present a risk of fire, explosion, leakage, or other hazard.
Samsung's warranty does not cover damage to the
phone caused by nonSamsung-approved batteries
and/or chargers.
• Do not use incompatible cell phone batteries and
chargers. Some websites and second-hand dealers not
associated with reputable manufacturers and carriers,
might be selling incompatible or even counterfeit batteries
and chargers. Consumers should purchase manufacturer
or carrier-recommended products and accessories. If
unsure about whether a replacement battery or charger is
compatible, contact the manufacturer of the battery or
charger.

U.S. Government that are subject to changes
implemented in accordance with the Department of
Defense policy and the 2008 Federal Radio
navigation Plan (FRP). Changes may affect the
performance of location-based technology on your
mobile device.
Certain Samsung mobile devices can also use an
Assisted Global Positioning System (AGPS), which
obtains information from the cellular network to
improve GPS performance. AGPS uses your wireless
service provider's network and therefore airtime, data
charges, and/or additional charges may apply in
accordance with your service plan. Contact your
wireless service provider for details.
Your Location
Location-based information includes information that
can be used to determine the approximate location of
a mobile device. Mobile devices which are connected
to a wireless network transmit location-based
information. Additionally, if you use applications that
require location-based information (e.g. driving
directions), such applications transmit location-based
information. The location-based information may be
shared with third-parties, including your wireless
service provider, applications providers, Samsung,
and other third-parties providing services.
Use of AGPS in Emergency Calls
When you make an emergency call, the cellular
network may activate AGPS technology in your
mobile device to tell the emergency responders your
approximate location.
AGPS has limitations and might not work in your area.
Therefore:
• Always tell the emergency responder your location to the
best of your ability; and
• Remain on the mobile device for as long as the
emergency responder instructs you.
Navigation
Maps, directions, and other navigation-data, including
data relating to your current location, may contain
inaccurate or incomplete data, and circumstances
can and do change over time. In some areas,
complete information may not be available. Therefore,
you should always visually confirm that the navigational
instructions are consistent with what you see before
following them. All users should pay attention to road
conditions, closures, traffic, and all other factors that may
impact safe driving or walking. Always obey posted road
signs.
Emergency Calls
This mobile device, like any wireless mobile device,
operates using radio signals, wireless and landline
networks, as well as user-programmed functions,
which cannot guarantee connection in all conditions,
areas, or circumstances.
Therefore, you should never rely solely on any
wireless mobile device for essential communications
(medical emergencies, for example). Before traveling
in remote or underdeveloped areas, plan an alternate
method of contacting emergency services personnel.
Remember, to make or receive any calls, the mobile
device must be switched on and in a service area

Care and Maintenance
Your mobile device is a product of superior design
and craftsmanship and should be treated with care.
The suggestions below will help you fulfill any
warranty obligations and allow you to enjoy this
product for many years:
Keep your Samsung Mobile Device away from:
Liquids of any kind
Keep the mobile device dry. Precipitation, humidity, and
liquids contain minerals that will corrode electronic
circuits. If the mobile device does get wet, do not
accelerate drying with the use of an oven, microwave, or
dryer, because this may damage the mobile device and
could cause a fire or explosion.

Do not use the mobile device with a wet hand. Doing so
may cause an electric shock to you or damage to the
mobile device.
Shock or vibration
Extreme heat or cold
Paint
Avoid temperatures below 0°C / 32°F or above 45°C /
113°F.
Do not paint the mobile device. Paint can clog the
device’s moving parts or ventilation openings and
prevent proper operation.
Microwaves
Do not try to dry your mobile device in a microwave
oven. Doing so may cause a fire or explosion.
Dust and dirt
Do not expose your mobile device to dust, dirt, or sand.
Cleaning solutions
Do not use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, or strong
detergents to clean the mobile device. Wipe it with a soft
Do not drop, knock, or shake the mobile device. Rough
handling can break internal circuit boards.
Responsible Listening
Caution! Avoid potential hearing loss.
Damage to hearing occurs when a person is exposed
to loud sounds over time. The risk of hearing loss
increases as sound is played louder and for longer
durations. Prolonged exposure to loud sounds
(including music) is the most common cause of
preventable hearing loss. Some scientific research
suggests that using portable audio devices, such as
portable music players and cell phones, at high
volume settings for long durations may lead to
permanent noise-induced hearing loss.
2C. Settings
174
This includes the use of headphones (including
headsets, earbuds, and Bluetooth® or other wireless
devices). Exposure to very loud sound has also been
associated in some studies with tinnitus (a ringing in
the ear), hypersensitivity to sound, and distorted
hearing. Individual susceptibility to noise-induced
hearing loss and potential hearing problem varies.
Additionally, the amount of sound produced by a
portable audio device varies depending on the nature
of the sound, the device settings, and the
headphones that are used. As a result, there is no
single volume setting that is appropriate for everyone
or for every combination of sound, settings, and
equipment.
You should follow some common sense
recommendations when using any portable audio
device:
• Always turn the volume down before plugging the
earphones into an audio source.
• Set the volume in a quiet environment and select the
lowest volume at which you can hear adequately.
175
2C. Settings
• Be aware that you can adapt to higher volume settings
over time, not realizing that the higher volume may be
harmful to your hearing.
• When using headphones, turn the volume down if you
cannot hear the people speaking near you or if the person
sitting next to you can hear what you are listening to.
• Do not turn the volume up to block out noisy surroundings.
If you choose to listen to your portable device in a noisy
environment, use noise-cancelling headphones to block
out background environmental noise. By blocking
background environment noise, noise cancelling
headphones should allow you to hear the music at lower
volumes than when using earbuds.
• Limit the amount of time you listen. As the volume
increases, less time is required before you hearing could
be affected.
• Avoid using headphones after exposure to extremely loud
noises, such as rock concerts, that might cause temporary
hearing loss. Temporary hearing loss might cause unsafe
volumes to sound normal.
• Do not listen at any volume that causes you discomfort. If
you experience ringing in your ears, hear muffled speech,
or experience any temporary hearing difficulty after
listening to your portable audio device, discontinue use
and consult your doctor.

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. Users are advised to switch the mobile device
off while at a refueling point (service station).
Users are reminded of the need to observe
restrictions on the use of radio equipment in fuel
depots (fuel storage and distribution areas), chemical
plants, or where blasting operations are in progress.
Areas with a potentially explosive atmosphere are
often, but not always, clearly marked. They include
below deck on boats, 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 engine.

When your Device is Wet
Do not turn on your device if it is wet. If your device is
already on, turn it off and remove the battery
immediately (if the device will not turn off or you
cannot remove the battery, leave it as-is). Then, dry
the device with a towel and take it to a service center.
FCC Hearing Aid Compatibility (HAC)
Regulations for Wireless Devices
The U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC)
has established requirements for digital wireless
mobile devices to be compatible with hearing aids
and other assistive hearing devices.
When individuals employing some assistive hearing
devices (hearing aids and cochlear implants) use
wireless mobile devices, they may detect a buzzing,
humming, or whining noise. Some hearing devices
are more immune than others to this interference
noise, and mobile devices also vary in the amount of
interference they generate.
179
2C. Settings
The wireless telephone industry has developed a
rating system for wireless mobile devices to assist
hearing device users find mobile devices that may be
compatible with their hearing devices. Not all mobile
devices have been rated. Mobile devices that are
rated have the rating on their box or a label located
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
mobile device successfully. Trying out the mobile
device with your hearing device is the best way to
evaluate it for your personal needs.
M-Ratings: Wireless mobile devices rated M3 or M4
meet FCC requirements and are likely to generate
less interference to hearing devices than mobile
devices that are not labeled. M4 is the better/higher of
the two ratings. M-ratings refer to enabling acoustic
coupling with hearing aids that do not operate in
telecoil mode.
T-Ratings: Mobile devices rated T3 or T4 meet FCC
requirements and are likely to generate less
interference to hearing devices than mobile devices
that are not labeled. T4 is the better/higher of the two
ratings. T-ratings refer to enabling inductive coupling
with hearing aids operating in telecoil mode.
Hearing devices may also be rated. Your hearing aid
manufacturer or hearing health professional may help
you find this rating. Higher ratings mean that the
hearing device is relatively immune to interference
noise.
Under the current industry standard, American
National Standards Institute (ANSI) C63.19, the
hearing aid and wireless mobile device rating values
are added together to indicate how usable they are
together. For example, if a hearing aid meets the M2
level rating and the wireless mobile device meets the
M3 level rating, the sum of the two values equals M5.
However, these are not guarantees that all users will
be satisfied. T ratings work similarly.
M3
+
M2
=
5
T3
+
T2
=
5
The HAC rating and measurement procedure are
described in the American National Standards
Institute (ANSI) C63.19 standard.
Under the standard, this should provide the hearing
aid user with normal use while using the hearing aid
with the particular wireless mobile device. A sum of 6
or more would indicate excellent performance.
2C. Settings
180
HAC for Newer Technologies
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.
Restricting Children's Access to Your Mobile
Device
Your mobile device is not a toy. Do not allow children
to play with it because they could hurt themselves
and others, damage the mobile device, or make calls
that increase your mobile device bill.
181
2C. Settings
Keep the mobile device and all its parts and
accessories out of the reach of small children.
FCC Notice and Cautions
FCC Notice
The mobile device may cause TV or radio
interference if used in close proximity to receiving
equipment. The FCC can require you to stop using
the mobile device if such interference cannot be
eliminated. Vehicles using liquefied petroleum gas
(such as propane or butane) must comply with the
National Fire Protection Standard (NFPA-58). For a
copy of this standard, contact the National Fire
Protection Association.
Cautions
Any changes or modifications to your mobile device
not expressly approved in this document could void
your warranty for this equipment and void your
authority to operate this equipment. Only use
approved batteries, antennas, and chargers. The use
of any unauthorized accessories may be dangerous
and void the mobile device warranty if said
accessories cause damage or a defect to the mobile
device.
Although your mobile device is quite sturdy, it is a
complex piece of equipment and can be broken.
Avoid dropping, hitting, bending, or sitting on it.
Other Important Safety Information
• Only qualified personnel should service the mobile device
or install the mobile device in a vehicle. Faulty installation
or service may be dangerous and may invalidate any
warranty applicable to the device.
• Ensure that any mobile devices or related equipment
installed in your vehicle are securely mounted.
• Check regularly that all wireless mobile device equipment
in your vehicle is mounted and operating properly.
• When using a headset in dry environments, static
electricity can build up in the headset and cause a small
quick static electrical shock. To minimize the risk of
electrostatic discharge from the headset avoid using the
headset in extremely dry environments or touch a
grounded unpainted metal object to discharge static
electricity before inserting the headset.
• Do not store or carry flammable liquids, gases, or
explosive materials in the same compartment as the
mobile device, its parts, or accessories.
• For vehicles equipped with an air bag, remember that an
air bag inflates with great force. Do not place objects,
including installed or portable wireless equipment near or
in the area over the air bag or in the air bag deployment
area. If wireless equipment is improperly installed and the
air bag inflates, serious injury could result.
• Switch your mobile device off before boarding an aircraft.
The use of wireless mobile devices in aircraft is illegal and
may be dangerous to the aircraft's operation. Check with
appropriate authorities before using any function of a
mobile device while on an aircraft.

DISCLAIMERS (INCLUDING SECTIONS 10, 11, 12
AND 13) SHALL APPLY TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT
PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, EVEN IF ANY
REMEDY FAILS ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
14. U.S. GOVERNMENT END USERS RESTRICTED
RIGHTS. The Software is licensed only with "restricted
rights" and as "commercial items" consisting of
"commercial software" and "commercial software

to all other end users pursuant to the terms and
conditions herein. All Software and Products are
provided subject to Federal Acquisition Regulation
(FAR) 52.227.19.
15. APPLICABLE LAW. This EULA is governed by the
laws of the jurisdiction where you are a resident or, if a

of Texas, without regard to its conflict of law provisions.
This EULA shall not be governed by the UN

16. DISPUTE RESOLUTION.
(a) Non-United States residents. If a dispute,
controversy or difference arising in any way from this
EULA or your use of the Software is not amicably
settled, it shall be subject to the non-exclusive
jurisdiction of the courts of the jurisdiction where you
are a resident. Notwithstanding the foregoing,

as part of a class action. The arbitration shall be
conducted before a single arbitrator, whose award
may not exceed, in form or amount, the relief allowed
by the applicable law. The arbitration shall be
conducted according to the American Arbitration
Association (AAA) Commercial Arbitration Rules
applicable to consumer disputes. This arbitration
provision is entered pursuant to the Federal Arbitration
Act. The laws of the State of Texas, without reference
to its choice of laws principles, shall govern the
interpretation of the EULA and all disputes that are
subject to this arbitration provision. The arbitrator shall
decide all issues of interpretation and application of
this arbitration provision and the EULA. For any
arbitration in which your total damage claims,
exclusive of attorney fees and expert witness fees, are
$5,000.00 or less ("Small Claim"), the arbitrator may, if
you prevail, award your reasonable attorney fees,
expert witness fees and costs as part of any award,
but may not grant Samsung its attorney fees, expert
witness fees or costs unless it is determined that the
claim was brought in bad faith. In a Small Claim case,
you shall be required to pay no more than half of the
197
2C. Settings
total administrative, facility and arbitrator fees, or
$50.00 of such fees, whichever is less, and Samsung
shall pay the remainder of such fees. Administrative,
facility and arbitrator fees for arbitrations in which your
total damage claims, exclusive of attorney fees and
expert witness fees, exceed $5,000.00 ("Large Claim")
shall be determined according to AAA rules. In a
Large Claim case, the arbitrator may grant to the
prevailing party, or apportion among the parties,
reasonable attorney fees, expert witness fees and
costs. Judgment may be entered on the arbitrator's
award in any court of competent jurisdiction. This
arbitration provision also applies to claims against
Samsung’s employees, representatives and affiliates if
any such claim arises from the licensing or use of the
Software. You may opt out of this dispute resolution
procedure by providing notice to Samsung no later
than 30 calendar days from the date of the first
consumer purchaser’s purchase of this device. To opt
out, you must send notice by e-mail to
optout@sta.samsung.com, with the subject line:
"Arbitration Opt Out." You must include in the opt out
e-mail (a) your name and address; (b) the date on
which the device was purchased; (c) the device
model name or model number; and (d) the IMEI or

on the device box; (ii) on the device information
screen, which can be found under "Settings;" (iii) on a
label on the back of the device beneath the battery, if

device if the battery is not removable). Alternatively,
you may opt out by calling 1-888-987-4357 no later

providing the same information. These are the only

this dispute resolution procedure. Opting out of this
dispute resolution procedure will not affect your use of
