Your phone features earSmart™, an intelligent voice processor that delivers a clear voice experience, allowing you to hear and be
heard™ in nearly any 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?
• The earSmart voice processor in your phone captures your voice and all the sounds around you.
• Working like the human ear, it processes and distinguishes these sounds, isolates your voice conversation, and removes background noise from both ends of a call.
• It also automatically equalizes and adjusts voice volume so you can hear and talk naturally, even in the noisiest places.
• With 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.

Section 1: Getting Started
This section explains how to start using your phone by first
configuring your hardware, activating your service, and then
setting up your voice mail.
Setting Up Your Phone
Prior to use it is necessary to install both the battery and SIM
into their corresponding internal compartments. The
microSD™ card slot is also located in this same internal
area.
1. Remove the battery cover by inserting your fingernail
or a pointed object into the slot located at the bottom of
the battery cover (1).
6
Warning! A graphite sheet is attached to the battery cover to
ensure your device does not over-heat. Be careful
not to damage it when using a pointed object or your
fingernail
Caution! Do not bend or twist the back cover excessively.
Doing so may damage the cover.
2. Lift the cover up (2) and away from the phone (3).
Installing the SIM Card
When you subscribe to a cellular network, you are provided
with a plug-in SIM card loaded with your subscription details,
such as your PIN, available optional services, and many
others features.
Important! The plug-in SIM card information and its contacts
can be easily damaged by scratching or bending,
so be careful when handling, inserting, or
removing the card. Keep all SIM cards out of reach
of small children.
Carefully slide the SIM card into the SIM card socket
(as shown) until the card locks into place.
• Make sure that the card’s gold contacts face toward the phone
and that the upper-left angled corner of the card is positioned
as shown.
Note: If the SIM card is not inserted correctly, the phone will
not detect it. Re-orient the card back into the slot if the
SIM is not detected.
Installing the Memory Card
Your device lets you use a microSD (SD) or microSDHC
card to expand available memory space. This secure digital
card enables you to exchange images, music, and data
between SD-compatible devices. This type of memory card
is designed for use with this mobile phone and other devices.
Getting Started
7
Push the microSD card into the slot until it clicks (as
shown).
• Make sure the microSD’s gold contact pins face downward
toward the phone and that the card is securely inserted.
Installing the Battery
1. Insert the battery into the opening on the back of the
phone, making sure the gold connectors align (1).
2. Gently press down to secure the battery (2).

Many people now maintain multiple email accounts, social
networking logins, and other similar account information. For
example, a Facebook account login name might differ from a
corporate email account login because they are maintained
separately and for different groups of people.
This device can synchronize with multiple accounts such as
Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Corporate email, and Google.
When you synchronize your phone with these accounts, each
account creates a separate contact entry in the Contacts list.
If one of your contacts (Amy Smith, for example) has a
regular email account that you maintain in Gmail, but also
has a Facebook account under her maiden and married
name, as well as a Yahoo! chat account, when you merge
these accounts into your Contacts list you can join all of her
entries and view the information in one record.
The next time you synchronize your phone with your
accounts, any updates that contacts make to their email
account names, email addresses, etc. automatically update
in your contacts list.

Section 11: Health and Safety Information
This section outlines the safety precautions associated with
using your phone. The terms “mobile device” or “cell phone”
are used in this section to refer to your phone. Read this
information before using your mobile device.
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.
Health and Safety Information
175
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.
176
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)
Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER)
Program of the National Cancer Institute
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
http://www.ukcosmos.org/index.html.
Risk of Brain Cancer from Exposure to Radio
Frequency Fields in Childhood and Adolescence
(MOBI-KIDS)
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 information about
SEER can be found at
http://seer.cancer.gov/.
Cell Phone Industry Actions
MOBI-KIDS is an international study investigating the
relationship between exposure to radio frequency energy
from communication technologies including cell phones and
brain cancer in young people. This is an international
multi-center study involving 14 European and non-European
countries. Additional information about MOBI-KIDS can be
found at
http://www.creal.cat/programes-recerca/en_projectes-creal/
view.php?ID=39.
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.
Health and Safety Information
177
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.
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.
Reducing Exposure: Hands-Free Kits and Other
Accessories
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 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
Steps to Reduce Exposure to Radio Frequency Energy
If there is a risk from being exposed to radio 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;
• Use speaker mode or a headset to place more distance between
your head and the cell 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.
178
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.
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.
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
180
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 1.0 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 phone 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 to the FCC are:
WCDMA/GSM/EDGE
The highest reported SAR values are:
• Head: 0.20W/kg
• Body-worn accessory: 0.54 W/kg
• Product Specific Use: 0.54 W/kg
WLAN
The highest reported SAR values are:
• Head: 0.11 W/kg
• Body-worn accessory: 0.44 W/kg
• Product Specific Use: 0.10 W/kg

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;
• Secure your phone within easy reach;
• 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;

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.
Health and Safety Information
183
• 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.
184
• Do not handle a damaged or leaking battery. Do not let leaking
battery fluid come in contact with your eyes, skin or clothing. For

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
188
• 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 with adequate signal
strength.
Emergency calls may not be possible on all wireless mobile
device networks or when certain network services and/or
mobile device features are in use. Check with local service
providers.
To make an emergency call:
1. If the phone is not on, switch it on.
2. From the Home screen, tap
displayed.
. The dialer is
3. Key in the emergency number for your present location
(for example, 911 or other official emergency number).
Emergency numbers vary by location.
4. Tap the
key.
If certain features are in use (call blocking, for example), you
may first need to deactivate those features before you can
make an emergency call. Consult your User Manual and your
local cellular service provider. When making an emergency
call, remember to give all the necessary information as
accurately as possible. Remember that your mobile device
may be the only means of communication at the scene of an
accident; do not cut off the call until given permission to do
so.
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

device’s moving parts or ventilation openings and prevent
proper operation.
190
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.
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.
• Limit the amount of time you listen. As the volume increases, less

such as rock concerts, that might cause temporary hearing loss.
Temporary hearing loss might cause unsafe volumes to sound
normal.
• Set the volume in a quiet environment and select the lowest
volume at which you can hear adequately.
• Be aware that you can adapt to higher volume settings over time,
not realizing that the higher volume may be harmful to your
hearing.
time is required before you hearing could be affected.
• Avoid using headphones after exposure to extremely loud noises,
• 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.
You can obtain additional information on this subject from the
following sources:
• 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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
However, these are not guarantees that all users will be
satisfied. T ratings work similarly.
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

SHALL SAMSUNG BE LIABLE FOR DAMAGES IN EXCESS OF

What is the procedure for resolving disputes?
ALL DISPUTES WITH SAMSUNG ARISING IN ANY WAY FROM
THIS LIMITED WARRANTY OR THE SALE, CONDITION OR
PERFORMANCE OF THE PRODUCTS SHALL BE RESOLVED
EXCLUSIVELY THROUGH FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION,
AND NOT BY A COURT OR JURY.
Any such dispute shall not be combined or consolidated with
a dispute involving any other person’s or entity’s Product or
claim, and specifically, without limitation of the foregoing,
shall not under any circumstances proceed 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 Limited Warranty 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 Limited
Warranty.
202
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 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 Product’s sale, condition or
performance.
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 the
Product. 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 Product was purchased;
(c) the Product model name or model number; and (d) the IMEI
or MEID or Serial Number, as applicable, if you have it (the IMEI
or MEID or Serial Number can be found (i) on the Product box;
(ii) on the Product information screen, which can be found
under “Settings;” (iii) on a label on the back of the Product
beneath the battery, if the battery is removable; and (iv) on the
outside of the Product if the battery is not removable).
Alternatively, you may opt out by calling 1-888-987-4357 no
later than 30 calendar days from the date of the first consumer
purchaser’s purchase of the Product and providing the same
information. These are the only two forms of notice that will be
effective to opt out of this dispute resolution procedure. Opting
out of this dispute resolution procedure will not affect the
coverage of the Limited Warranty in any way, and you will
continue to enjoy the benefits of the Limited Warranty.
Severability
If any portion of this Limited Warranty is held to be illegal or
unenforceable, such partial illegality or unenforceability shall
not affect the enforceability of the remainder of the Limited
Warranty.
Precautions for Transfer and Disposal
If data stored on this device is deleted or reformatted using
the standard methods, the data only appears to be removed
on a superficial level, and it may be possible for someone to
retrieve and reuse the data by means of special software.
To avoid unintended information leaks and other problems of

Samsung’s Customer Care Center for an Extended File

Miscellaneous
The Terms (including all documents comprising the Terms)
constitute the entire agreement between you and Samsung,
and supersedes any prior agreement between you and
Samsung, with respect to your use of the Service. Your use of
any third-party content or service accessed via the Service
will be governed by the terms and conditions furnished with,
and applicable to that content or service. If any provision of
the Terms is held invalid, illegal or unenforceable, that
portion of the Terms shall be construed in a manner
consistent with applicable law to reflect, as nearly as
possible, the original intentions of the parties, and the
remaining portion of the Terms shall remain in full force and
effect. Samsung's failure to enforce any right or provision of
the Terms will not constitute a waiver of such provision, or
any other provision of the Terms.
Samsung will not be liable or responsible for any failure to
fulfill any of its obligations under the Terms which failure is
due to any cause or condition beyond the reasonable control
of Samsung. If there is any conflict between these Social Hub
Terms and Conditions and the Social Hub Privacy Policy, the
provisions of these Social Hub Terms and Conditions shall
prevail. The provisions of the Terms that are intended to or by
their nature should survive termination of your use of the
Service shall remain valid after any such termination.
Social Hub Privacy Policy
Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. ("Samsung") is committed to
protecting the online privacy of visitors, users and customers
to our Social Hub service. This privacy policy ( "Privacy
Policy") forms part of the Terms which govern your use of
Social Hub(excluding any third party content and services),
and (if applicable) the website where you accessed this
Privacy Policy, (collectively, the "Service"). The purpose of
the Privacy Policy is to inform you about the types of
information we gather about you when you access or use the
Service, how we may use that information, and if and how
we disclose it to third parties.
All users of the Service are required to provide true, current,
complete and accurate personal information when prompted
and we will reject and delete any entry that we believe in
good faith to be incorrect, false, falsified, or fraudulent, or
inconsistent with or in violation of the Privacy Policy.
We will provide you with an opportunity to give your consent
in relation to your use of the Service. Separate from such
consent, your access or use of the Service will be construed
as your acceptance of the Privacy Policy and of our
collection, use, disclosure, management and storage of your
personal information as described below. We may, from time
to time, transfer or merge any personal information collected
off-line to our online databases or store off-line information
in an electronic format. We may also combine personal
information we collect online with information available from
other sources, including information received from our
affiliates, marketing companies, or advertisers. This Privacy
Policy covers all such personal information and will remain in
full force and effect as long as you are a user of the Service,
even if your use of or participation in any particular service,
feature, function or promotional activity terminates, expires,
ceases, is suspended or deactivated for any reason.
INFORMATION THAT WE COLLECT
Personal Information
We may request that you supply us with "personal"
information, such as your name, e-mail address, mailing
address, home or work telephone number in the course of
you accessing or using the Service, such as via registration
forms, surveys, and polls. In each such case, you will know
what categories of information we collect because you will
actively provide the information to us. You may not be able to
Warranty Information
217
fully utilize all of the features or components of the Service if
you choose not to provide certain information. If you do
choose to give us personal information through the Service,
we will collect and retain that information.
Non-Personal Information
When you use the Service, we may also collect
"non-personal" information. We consider "non-personal
information" to be information that, by itself, cannot be used
to identify or contact you personally, such as demographic
information (your age, gender, income, education,
profession, zip code, etc.). Non-personal information may
also include technical information, such as your IP address
and other anonymous data involving your use of the Service.
Non-personal information may also include information that
you provide us through your use of the Service, such as the
terms you enter into the search functions of Social Hub, mail
inbox and instant messenger. We reserve the right to use or
disclose non-personal information in any way we see fit.
USE OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT
Our Services
We use your personal information to provide you with any
services that you may request or require, to communicate
with you and to allow you to participate in online surveys. We
218
use aggregated non-personal information about our users to
understand the demographics of users of the Service, such
as the percentage of male and female users, the geographic
distribution of our users, the age ranges of our users, a
combination of these and/or other demographics. We may
also use the personal or non-personal information we collect
to analyze how Service is being used, and to improve the
content of the Service, and for marketing and promotional
efforts.
E-mail Communications
If you send us an e-mail with questions or comments, we
may use your personal information to respond to your
questions or comments, and we may save your questions or
comments for future reference. Aside from our reply to such
an e-mail, it is not our standard practice to send you e-mail
unless you request a particular service that involves e-mail
communications. However, you consent to us contacting you
by e-mail, and sending you information about products and
services which we believe may be of interest to you. You may
have the opportunity to subscribe to an electronic newsletter
in which case information about the Service or our
advertisers will be sent to your e-mail address. We will
provide you with the option to change your preferences and
opt-out of receiving those communications. You may request
at any time that we not e-mail you in future by clicking the
"unsubscribe" link which is included at the bottom of any
e-mail that you receive from us. If you unsubscribe, we will
make reasonable efforts to discontinue e-mail
communications to you as soon as practicable.
DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION TO
THIRD PARTIES
Aggregate Information
Except as specifically set forth in this Privacy Policy, we do
not share your personal information with any third party
without your permission. We may disclose aggregate
information, such as demographic information, and our
statistical analyses to third parties, including advertisers or
other business partners. This aggregate information does not
include your personal information.
Service Providers
We sometimes engage unaffiliated businesses to assist us in
providing you certain services. For example, we may use
third parties to provide advertising, marketing and
promotional assistance, provide e-mail services, or facilitate
our online services. In those instances, we may need to
share your personal information with them.
We require these companies to use your personal
information only to provide the particular product or service
and do not authorize them to use your personal information
for any other reason. We sometimes offer promotions in
conjunction with a third party sponsor.
If you choose to participate in those promotions, we may
share your information with the sponsor if they need it to
send you a product or other special promotion they offer.
Third Party Advertisers
We may use third-party advertising companies to deliver
specific advertisements to you. These companies may collect
non-personal information about your visits to Social Hub in
order to provide advertisements about products and services
that may be of interest to you.
These companies may also aggregate your non-personal
information for use in targeted advertising, marketing
research, and other similar purposes. These companies may
place their own cookies on your computer. If you want to
prevent a third-party advertiser from collecting and using this
information, you may visit each third party advertiser's
website directly and opt-out.
Warranty Information
219
Other Disclosures
We may disclose personal information when we are required
or requested to do so by law, court order or other
government or law enforcement authority or regulatory
agency; to enforce or apply our rights and agreements; or
when we believe in good faith that disclosing this information
is necessary or advisable, including, for example, to protect
the rights, property, or safety of the Service and Samsung,
our users, or others.
CHILDREN
The Service is not designed for use by children without their
parent's supervision. We ask that anyone under the age of
sixteen (16) not submit any personal information through the
Service. We do not knowingly collect any personal
information from children under the age of eighteen, and
therefore we do not knowingly distribute such information to
third parties.
SECURITY OF THE INFORMATION WE
COLLECT
The security of your personal information is important to us.
We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards
to secure your personal information. However, there is
220
always some risk in transmitting information electronically.
The personal information we collect is stored within
databases that we control.
As we deem appropriate, we use security measures
consistent with industry standards, such as firewalls and
encryption technology, to protect your information. However,
we cannot guarantee the security of our databases, nor can
we guarantee that information you supply won't be
intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet.
CHAT ROOMS AND OTHER PUBLIC
AREAS
Our third party service and content providers may offer chat,
user reviews, bulletin boards, or other public functions and
any posting by you is considered public information available
to other users. Any posting is governed in accordance with
the third party service and content providers' terms and
conditions. You should take care not to use personal
information in your screen name or other information that
might be publicly available to other users.
Archived Information
We maintain archives of web logs, database, and other
systems and information in relation to the Service. Please
note that it is possible some of this information may remain
archived after we delete the information from its active
database. We maintain archives for disaster recovery, legal
and other non-marketing purposes.
How can I update my profile?
You can help us maintain the accuracy of your profile by
notifying us when you change zip/postal code, country of
residence, age range, or e-mail address. If at any time you
wish to update your information or stop receiving
communication from us, sign in to the Service and then
select 'update your profile' to change your preferences.
CONTESTS AND SWEEPSTAKES
Registration may be required to enter promotions such as
contests and sweepstakes on Social Hub. These registration
or entry processes may require your submission of personal
information such as your first and last name, street address,
city, state and zip code, e-mail address, telephone number
and date of birth. The entry page and/or rules for the
promotion will provide the specific requirements for the
promotion. You may also have the opportunity to opt-in to
special offers from our advertisers in connection with these
promotions.
ACCURACY OF THE INFORMATION WE
COLLECT
Any questions you may have regarding this Privacy Policy,
the accuracy of your personal information or the use of your
personal information, or any requests that we correct,
update, or remove your information in our databases, should
be directed via e-mail to s.dufresne@Samsung.com, or via
regular mail to:
Samsung Telecommunications America, LLC
1301 E. Lookout Drive, Richardson, TX 75082
Attn: Customer Support Department
After receiving a request to change your information, we will
make reasonable efforts to ensure that all of your personal
information stored in databases we actively use to operate
the Service will be updated, corrected, changed or deleted,
as appropriate, as soon as reasonably practicable. However,
we reserve the right to retain in our archival files any
information we remove from or change in our active
databases. We may retain such information to resolve
disputes, troubleshoot problems and enforce our Terms.
Warranty Information
221
In addition, it is not technologically possible to remove each
and every record of the information you have provided to us.
A copy of your personal information may exist in a
non-erasable form that will be difficult or impossible for us to
locate.
CHANGES TO PRIVACY POLICY
This Privacy Policy is effective as of May 29, 2010 and
complies with Samsung's Corporate Privacy Policy. We
reserve the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time,
and will post any such changes to this Privacy Policy on the
Social Hub website. Please refer back to the Social Hub
website on a regular basis to obtain the most up to date
