precautions may be dangerous or illegal.
4
Road safety
Full attention should be given to driving at all times in order to reduce the risk
of an accident. Using a phone while driving causes distraction and can lead to
an accident. You should comply with local laws and regulations restricting the
use of wireless devices while driving.
Switch off the phone when refuelling
Do not use the phone at a refuelling point (service station) or near fuels or
chemicals.

Hospitals or health care facilities may be using equipment that could be
sensitive to external radio frequency energy. Follow any regulations or rules in
force.
Interference
All Mobile phones may be subject to interference, which could affect their
performance.
Be aware of special regulations
Meet any special regulations in force in any area and always switch off your
phone whenever it is forbidden to use it, or when it may cause interference or
danger.
5

Your phone is not water-resistant. Keep it dry.
Sensible use
Use only in the normal position (held to the ear).
Emergency calls
Key in the emergency number for your present location, then press
.
Keep your phone away from small children
Keep the phone and all its parts, including accessories, out of the reach of
small children. The product contains small parts with sharp edges that may
cause injury or which may become detached and create a choking hazard.
Accessories and batteries
Use only ZTE-approved batteries and accessories. Use of any unauthorised
accessories could damage you or your phone and may be dangerous.

Health and safety information
SAR certification information
THIS MODEL MEETS INTERNATIONAL GUIDELINES FOR EXPOSURE TO RADIO WAVES.
Your mobile phone is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed not to
exceed the limits for exposure to radio waves recommended by international
guidelines. The guidelines were developed by independent scientific
organisation ICNIRP and include margins designed to assure the protection of
all persons, regardless of age and health.
This guideline uses a unit of measurement known as Specific Absorption Rate,
or SAR. The SAR limit for mobile devices is 2.0 W/kg and the highest SAR value
for this device when tested at the ear was 1.320W/kg.1
1. The tests are carried out in accordance with international guidelines for
testing.
As SAR is measured utilising the device’s highest transmitting power, the
actual SAR of this device while operating is typically below that indicated above.
This is due to automatic changes to the power level of the device to ensure it
only uses the minimum level required to reach the network.
The World Health Organization has stated that present scientific information
does not indicate the need for any special precautions for the use of mobile
devices.
7
Precautions when using batteries
•
Never use a charger or battery that is damaged in any way.
•
Use the battery only for its intended purpose.
•
If you use the phone near the network’s base station, it uses less power.
Talk and standby time are greatly affected by the signal strength on the
cellular network and the parameters set by the network operator.
•
Battery charging time depends on the remaining battery charge, the type
of battery, and the charger used. The battery can be charged and is
charged hundreds of times, but it will gradually wear out. When the
operation time is noticeably shorter than normal, it is time to buy a new
battery.
•
If left unused, a fully charged battery will discharge itself over time.
•
Use only ZTE-approved batteries, and recharge your battery only with
ZTE-approved chargers. Disconnect the charger from the power source
when it is not in use.
•
Extreme temperatures will affect the charging capacity of your battery: it
may require cooling or warming first.
•
Do not leave the battery in hot or cold places because the capacity and
lifetime of the battery will be reduced. Try to keep the battery at room
temperature. A phone with a hot or cold battery may not work temporarily,
even when the battery is fully charged. Li-ion batteries are particularly
affected by temperatures below 0°C (32°F).
8
•
Do not short-circuit the battery. Accidental shortcircuiting can occur when a
metallic object like a coin, clip or pen causes a direct connection between
the + and - terminals of the battery (metal strips on the battery). For
example, do not carry a spare battery in a pocket or bag where the battery
may contact metal objects. Short-circuiting the terminals may damage the
battery or the object causing the short-circuiting.
•
Dispose of used batteries in accordance with local regulations. Always
recycle. Do not dispose of batteries in a fire.
Road safety
Your mobile phone gives you the powerful ability to communicate by voice,
almost anywhere, anytime. But an important responsibility accompanies the
benefits of mobile phones, one that every user must uphold.
When driving a car, driving is your first responsibility. Using a phone while
driving causes distraction and can lead to an accident. When using your mobile
phone while driving, follow local regulations in the country or region you are in.
Operating environment
Remember to follow any special regulations in force in the area you are in, and
always switch off your phone whenever it is forbidden to use it, or when it may
cause interference or danger.
When connecting the phone or any accessory to another device, read its user’s
guide for detailed safety instructions. Do not connect incompatible products.
9
As with other mobile radio transmitting equipment, users are advised that for
the satisfactory operation of the equipment and for the safety of personnel, it
is recommended that the equipment should only be used in the normal
operating position (held to your ear).
Electronic devices
Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from radio frequency (RF)
signals. However, certain electronic equipment may not be shielded against
the RF signals from your mobile phone. Consult the manufacturer to discuss
alternatives.
Pacemakers
Pacemaker manufacturers recommend that a minimum distance of 15 cm (6
inches) be maintained between a mobile phone and a pacemaker to avoid
potential interference with the pacemaker. These recommendations are
consistent with the independent research and recommendations of Wireless
Technology Research. If you have any reason to suspect that interference is
taking place, switch off your phone immediately.
Hearing aids
Some digital mobile phones may interfere with some hearing aids. In the
event of such interference, you may wish to consult your hearing aid
manufacturer to discuss alternatives.
10
Other medical devices
If you use any other personal medical devices, 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.
Switch off your phone in health care facilities when regulations posted in these
areas instruct you to do so.
Vehicles
RF signals may affect improperly installed or inadequately shielded electronic
systems in motor vehicles. Check with the manufacturer or its representative
regarding your vehicle.
You should also consult the manufacturer of any equipment that has been
added to your vehicle.
Posted facilities
Switch off your phone in any facility where posted notices require you to do
so.
Potentially explosive environments
Switch off your phone when in any area with a potentially explosive
atmosphere, and obey all signs and instructions to turn off mobile phones and
other radio equipment. Sparks in such areas could cause an explosion or fire
resulting in bodily injury or even death.
11
Users are advised to switch off the phone while at a refuelling point (service
station). Users must 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 the areas below decks 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.
Emergency calls
This phone, like any mobile phone, operates using radio signals, wireless, and
landline networks as well as user-programmed functions, which cannot
guarantee connection in all conditions. Therefore, you should never rely solely
on any mobile phone for essential communications like medical emergencies.
To make or receive calls, the phone must be switched on and in a service area
with adequate signal strength. Emergency calls may not be possible on all
mobile phone networks or when certain network services and/or phone
features are in use. Check with local service providers.
To make an emergency call:
1. Switch on the phone.
2. Key in the emergency number for your present location. Emergency
numbers vary by location.
12
3. Press [
].
Certain features like Call Barring may need to be deactivated before you can
make an emergency call. Consult this document and your local cellular service
provider.
Other important safety information
•
Only qualified personnel should service the phone or install the phone in a
vehicle. Faulty installation or service may be dangerous and may invalidate
any warranty applicable to the device.
•
Check regularly that all mobile phone equipment in your vehicle is
mounted and operating properly.
•
Do not store or carry flammable liquids, gases, or explosive materials in the
same compartment as the phone, 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, in the area over the air bag or in the air bag
deployment area. Improperly installed wireless equipment could result in
serious injury if the air bag inflates.
•
Mobile phones can cause interference. Consult airport and airline staff
about the use of the phone on aircraft. Switch off the phone whenever you
are instructed to do so.
•
Failure to observe these instructions may lead to the suspension or denial
of telephone services to the offender, or legal action, or both.
13
Care and maintenance
Your phone is a product of superior design and craftsmanship and should be
treated with care.
•
Keep your phone and all its parts and accessories out of the reach of small
children and pets. They may inadvertently damage these things or choke
on small parts.
•
Keep the phone dry. Precipitation, humidity, and liquids contain minerals
that corrode electronic circuits.
•
Do not use the phone with a wet hand. Doing so may cause an electric
shock to you or damage to the phone.
•
Do not use or store the phone in dusty, dirty areas, as its moving parts may
be damaged.
•
Do not store the phone in hot areas above 60°C (140°F). High temperatures can shorten the life of electronic devices, damage batteries, and warp
or melt certain plastics.
•
Do not store the phone in cold areas. When the phone warms up to its
normal operating temperature, moisture can form inside the phone, which
may damage the phone’s electronic circuit boards.
•
Do not drop, knock, or shake the phone. Rough handling can break internal
circuit boards.
•
Do not use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, or strong detergents to
clean the phone. Wipe it with a soft cloth.
14
•
Do not paint the phone. Paint can clog the device’s moving parts and
prevent proper operation.
•
Do not put the phone in or on heating devices, such as a microwave oven,
stove, or radiator. The phone may explode when overheated.
•
If the phone, battery or charger is not working properly, take it to your
nearest qualified service facility. The personnel there will assist you, and if
necessary, arrange for service.
