4A. Important Safety Information
General Precautions
There are several simple guidelines to operating your phone
properly and maintaining safe, satisfactory service.
䢇 To maximize performance, do not touch the bottom portion
of your phone where the internal antenna is located while
using the phone.
䢇 Speak directly into the mouthpiece.
䢇 Avoid exposing your phone and accessories to rain or liquid
spills. If your phone does get wet, immediately turn the
power off and remove the battery.
䢇 Do not expose your phone to direct sunlight for extended
periods of time (such as on the dashboard of a car).
䢇 Although your phone is quite sturdy, it is a complex piece of
equipment and can be broken. Avoid dropping, hitting,
bending, or sitting on it.
䢇 Any changes or modifications to your phone not expressly
approved in this document could void your warranty for this
equipment and void your authority to operate this
equipment.
Note: For the best care of your phone, only Samsung-authorized
personnel should service your phone. Failure to do so may be
dangerous and void your warranty.
Do Not Rely on Your Phone for Emergency Calls 
Mobile phones operate using radio signals, which cannot
guarantee connection in all conditions. Therefore you should
never rely solely upon any mobile phone for essential
communication (e.g., medical emergencies). Emergency calls
may not be possible on all cellular networks or when certain
network services or mobile phone features are in use. Check
with your local service provider for details.
Using Your Phone While Driving
Talking on your phone while driving (or operating the phone
without a hands-free device) is prohibited in some jurisdictions.
Laws vary as to specific restrictions. Remember that safety
always comes first.
Following Safety Guidelines
To operate your phone safely and efficiently, always follow any
special regulations in a given area. Turn your phone off in areas
where use is forbidden or when it may cause interference or
danger.
Using Your Phone Near Other Electronic Devices
Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from radio
frequency (RF) signals. However, RF signals from wireless
phones may affect inadequately shielded electronic
equipment.
RF signals may affect improperly installed or inadequately
shielded electronic operating systems or entertainment
systems in motor vehicles. Check with the manufacturer or their
representative to determine if these systems are adequately
shielded from external RF signals. Also check with the
manufacturer regarding any equipment that has been added to
your vehicle.
Consult the manufacturer of any personal medical devices,
such as pacemakers and hearing aids, to determine if they are
adequately shielded from external RF signals.
Note: Always turn off the phone in healthcare facilities, and request
permission before using the phone near medical equipment.
Turning Off Your Phone Before Flying
Turn off your phone before boarding any aircraft. To prevent
possible interference with aircraft systems, the U.S. Federal
Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations require you to have
permission from a crew member to use your phone while 
the plane is on the ground. To prevent any risk of interference,
FCC regulations prohibit using your phone while the plane is in
the air.
Turning Off Your Phone in Dangerous Areas
To avoid interfering with blasting operations, turn your phone
off when in a blasting area or in other areas with signs
indicating two-way radios should be turned off. Construction
crews often use remote-control RF devices to set off explosives.
4A. Important Safety Information
Important Safety Information
Maintaining Safe Use of and Access
to Your Phone
149
Turn your phone off when you’re in any area that has a
potentially explosive atmosphere. Although it’s rare, your phone
and accessories could generate sparks. Sparks can cause an
explosion or fire, resulting in bodily injury or even death. These
areas are often, but not always, clearly marked. They include:
䡲 Fueling areas such as gas stations.
䡲 Below deck on boats.
䡲 Fuel or chemical transfer or storage facilities.
䡲 Areas where the air contains chemicals or particles such
as grain, dust, or metal powders.
䡲 Any other area where you would normally be advised to
turn off your vehicle’s engine.
Note: Never transport or store flammable gas, flammable liquids, or
explosives in the compartment of your vehicle that contains
your phone or accessories.
Restricting Children’s Access to Your Phone
Your phone is not a toy. Do not allow children to play with it as
they could hurt themselves and others, or damage the phone.

A number of our phones have been tested for hearing aid
device compatibility. When some wireless phones are used
with certain hearing devices (including hearing aids and
cochlear implants), users may detect a noise which can
interfere with the effectiveness of the hearing device.
Some hearing devices are more immune than others to this
interference noise, and phones also vary in the amount of
interference noise they may generate. ANSI standard C63.19
was developed to provide a standardized means of measuring
both wireless phone and hearing devices to determine usability
rating categories for both.
Ratings have been developed for mobile phones to assist
hearing device users find phones that may be compatible with
their hearing device. Not all phones have been rated for
compatibility with hearing devices. Phones that have been
rated have a label located on the box. Your Samsung Galaxy S
II has an M4 T4 - 2007 rating.
These ratings are not guarantees. Results will vary depending
on the user’s hearing device and individual type and degree of
hearing loss. If a hearing device is particularly vulnerable to
interference noise; even a phone with a higher rating may still
cause unacceptable noise levels in the hearing device. Trying
out the phone with your hearing device is the best way to
evaluate it for your personal needs.
M-Ratings: Phones rated M3 or M4 meet FCC requirements for
hearing aid compatibility and are likely to generate less
interference to hearing devices than unrated phones. (M4 is the
better/higher of the two ratings.)
T-Ratings: Phones rated T3 or T4 meet FCC requirements and
are likely to be more usable with a hearing device’s telecoil 
(“T Switch” or “Telephone Switch”) than unrated phones. (T4 is
the better/higher of the two ratings. Note that not all hearing
devices have telecoils in them.)
Note: New Technologies, Including Wi-Fi 
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.

Hearing aid devices may also be measured for immunity to
interference noise from wireless phones and should have
ratings similar to phones. Ask your hearing healthcare
professional for the rating of your hearing aid. Add the rating of
your hearing aid and your phone to determine probable
usability:
䢇 Any combined rating equal to or greater than six offers
excellent use.
䢇 Any combined rating equal to five is considered normal use.
䢇 Any combined rating equal to four is considered usable.
Thus, if you pair an M3 hearing aid with an M3 phone, you will
have a combined rating of six for “excellent use.” This is
synonymous for T ratings.
We further suggests you experiment with multiple phones
(even those not labeled M3/T3 or M4/T4) while in the store to
find the one that works best with your hearing aid device.
Getting the Best Hearing Device
Experience With Your Phone
To further minimize interference:
䢇 Set the phone’s display and keypad backlight settings to
ensure the minimum time intervals.
1. Press
and tap
Screen timeout.
> Settings > Display > 
2. Touch the minimum time interval setting.

Position the phone so the internal antenna is farthest from
your hearing aid.
Move the phone around to find the point with least
interference.
Caring for the Battery
Protecting Your Battery
The guidelines listed below help you get the most out of your
battery’s performance.
䢇 Recently there have been some public reports of wireless
phone batteries overheating, catching fire, or exploding. It
appears that many, if not all, of these reports involve
counterfeit or inexpensive, aftermarket-brand batteries with
unknown or questionable manufacturing standards. Boost
Mobile is not aware of similar problems with Boost Mobile
phones resulting from the proper use of batteries approved
by the manufacturer of your phone. Use only manufacturerapproved batteries found through your phone’s
manufacturer.
䢇 In order to avoid damage, charge the battery only in
temperatures that range from 32° F to 113° F (0° C to 45° C).
䢇 Don’t use the battery charger in direct sunlight or in high
humidity areas, such as the bathroom.
䢇 Never dispose of the battery by incineration.
䢇 Keep the metal contacts on top of the battery clean.
䢇 Don’t attempt to disassemble or short-circuit the battery.
䢇 The battery may need recharging if it has not been used for
a long period of time.
䢇
It’s best to replace the battery when it no longer provides
acceptable performance. It can be recharged hundreds of
times before it needs replacing.
Don’t store the battery in high temperature areas for long
periods of time. It’s best to follow these storage rules:
䡲 Less than one month:
-4° F to 140° F (-20° C to 60° C)
䡲 More than one month:
-4° F to 113° F (-20° C to 45° C)
Disposal of Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) Batteries
Do not handle a damaged or leaking Li-Ion battery as you can
be burned.
For safe disposal options of your Li-Ion batteries, contact your
nearest Samsung authorized service center.
Special Note: Be sure to dispose of your battery properly. In
some areas, the disposal of batteries in household or business
trash may be prohibited.
Radio Frequency (RF) Energy
Understanding How Your Phone Operates
Your phone is basically a radio transmitter and receiver. When
it’s turned on, it receives and transmits radio frequency (RF)
signals. When you use your phone, the system handling your
call controls the power level. This power can range from 0.006
watt to 0.2 watt in digital mode.
Knowing Radio Frequency Safety
The design of your phone complies with updated NCRP
standards described below.
In 1991–92, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers
(IEEE) and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI)
joined in updating ANSI’s 1982 standard for safety levels with
respect to human exposure to RF signals. More than 120
scientists, engineers and physicians from universities,
government health agencies and industries developed this
updated standard after reviewing the available body of
research. In 1993, the Federal Communications Commission
(FCC) adopted this updated standard in a regulation. In August
1996, the FCC adopted hybrid standard consisting of the
existing ANSI/IEEE standard and the guidelines published by
the National Council of Radiation Protection and
Measurements (NCRP).
Body-Worn Operation
To maintain compliance with FCC RF exposure guidelines, if
you wear a handset on your body, use a manufacturer
approved carrying case, holster or other body-worn accessory.
If you do not use a body-worn accessory, ensure the antenna is
at least 1.5 centimeters from your body when transmitting. Use
of non-manufacturer-approved accessories may violate FCC
RF exposure guidelines.

Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) for Wireless
Phones
The SAR value corresponds to the relative amount of RF
energy absorbed into the head of a user of a wireless handset.
The SAR value of a phone is the result of an extensive testing,
measuring and calculation process. It does not represent how
much RF the phone emits. All phone models are tested at their
highest value in strict laboratory settings. But when in
operation, the SAR of a phone can be substantially less than
the level reported to the FCC. This is because of a variety of
factors including its proximity to a base station antenna, phone
design and other factors. What is important to remember is that
each phone meets strict federal guidelines. Variations in SARs
do not represent a variation in safety.
WLAN:
Head: 0.10 W/Kg
Body-worn accessory: 0.09 W/Kg
Product Specific Use: 0.08 W/kg
Simultaneous Transmissions: 1.21 W/kg
FCC Radio Frequency Emission
This phone meets the FCC Radio Frequency Emission
Guidelines.
FCC ID number: A3LSPHD710
More information on the phone’s SAR can be found from the
following FCC website: http://www.fcc.gov/oet/ea/.
FCC Notice
All phones must meet the federal standard, which incorporates
a substantial margin of safety. As stated above, variations in
SAR values between different model phones do not mean
variations in safety. SAR values at or below the federal standard
of 1.6 W/kg are considered safe for use by the public.
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation
is subject to the following two conditions: (1) this device may
not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept
any interference received, including interference that may
cause undesired operation.
The highest reported SAR values of the Samsung Galaxy S II
are:
PCS CDMA with WIMAX:
Head: 0.40 W/Kg
Body-worn accessory: 0.61 W/Kg
Product Specific Use: 0.61 W/kg
Simultaneous Transmissions: 1.21 W/kg
Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party
responsible for compliance could void the user’s authority to
operate the equipment.

such as your name, e-mail address, mailing address, home or
work telephone number in the course of you accessing or

gender, income, education, profession, zip code, etc.).
Non-personal information may also include technical
information, such as your IP address and other anonymous

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

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

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

assistance, provide e-mail services, or facilitate our online
services. In those instances, we may need to share your
personal information with them.

you may visit each third party advertiser's website directly and
opt-out.
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

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 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.

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
