battery use & safety
AVOID INJURY OR DAMAGE. Most battery issues arise from improper
handling of batteries, and particularly from the continued use of damaged
• Don’t disassemble, crush, puncture, shred, or otherwise
attempt to change the form of your battery.
• Don’t let the phone or battery come in contact with water.
Water can get into the phone’s circuits, leading to corrosion. If
the phone and/or battery get wet, have them checked by your
carrier or contact Motorola, even if they appear to be working
• Don’t allow the battery to touch metal objects. If metal
objects, such as jewelry, stay in prolonged contact with the
battery contact points, the battery could become very hot.
• Don’t place your battery near a heat source. Excessive heat
can damage the phone or the battery. High temperatures can
cause the battery to swell, leak, or malfunction. Therefore:
• Do not dry a wet or damp battery with an appliance or heat
source, such as a hair dryer or microwave oven.
• Avoid leaving your phone in your car in high temperatures.
• Do avoid dropping the battery or phone. Dropping these
items, especially on a hard surface, can potentially cause
• Do contact your service provider or Motorola if your
phone or battery has been damaged from dropping or high
ASSURANCE AND SAFEGUARDS. To aid consumers in identifying
authentic Motorola batteries from non-original or counterfeit batteries
(that may not have adequate safety protection), Motorola provides
holograms on its batteries. Consumers should confirm that any battery they
purchase has a “Motorola Original” hologram.
Motorola recommends you always use Motorola-branded batteries
and chargers. Motorola mobile devices are designed to work with
Motorola batteries. If you see a message on your display such as
Invalid Battery or Unable to Charge, take the following steps:
• Remove the battery and inspect it to confirm that it has a
“Motorola Original” hologram;
• If there is no hologram, the battery is not a Motorola battery;
• If there is a hologram, replace the battery and retry charging it;
• If the message remains, contact a Motorola Authorized Service
Important: Motorola’s warranty does not cover damage to the phone
caused by non-Motorola batteries and/or chargers.
Warning: Use of a non-Motorola battery or charger may present a risk of
fire, explosion, leakage, or other hazard.
Proper battery disposal is not only important for safety, it benefits the
environment. Consumers may recycle their used batteries in many retail or
service provider locations. Additional information on proper disposal and
recycling may be found on the Web:
• (in English only)
Disposal: Promptly dispose of used batteries in accordance
with local regulations. Contact your local recycling center or
national recycling organizations for more information on
how to dispose of batteries.
Warning: Never dispose of batteries in a fire because they may explode.
Specific Absorption Rate Data
model meets international guidelines for exposure to
radio waves.
Your mobile device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed not to
exceed the limits for exposure to radio waves recommended by
international guidelines. These guidelines were developed by the
independent scientific organization ICNIRP and include safety margins
designed to assure the protection of all persons, regardless of age and
The guidelines use a unit of measurement known as the Specific
Absorption Rate, or SAR. The ICNIRP SAR limit for mobile devices
used by the general public is 2 W/kg and the highest SAR value for
this device when tested at the ear is 0.78 W/kg.1 As mobile devices
offer a range of functions, they can be used in other positions, such as
on the body as described in this user’s guide.2 In this case, the highest
tested SAR value is 0.25 W/kg.1
As SAR is measured utilizing the device’s highest transmitting power, the
actual SAR of this device while operating is typically below that indicated
above. This is due to automatic changes to the power level of the device to
ensure it only uses the minimum level required to reach the network.
While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various phones
and at various positions, they all meet the governmental requirements for
safe exposure. Please note that improvements to this product model could
cause differences in the SAR value for later products; in all cases, products
are designed to be within the guidelines.
The World Health Organization has stated that present scientific
information does not indicate the need for any special precautions for the
use of mobile devices. They note that if you want to reduce your exposure
then you can do so by limiting the length of calls or using a “handsfree”
device to keep the mobile phone away from the head and body.
Additional Information can be found on the websites of the World
Health Organization ( or Motorola,
Inc. (
1. The tests are carried out in accordance with international guidelines
for testing. The limit incorporates a substantial margin for safety to
give additional protection for the public and to account for any
variations in measurements. Additional related information includes
the Motorola testing protocol, assessment procedure, and
measurement uncertainty range for this product.
2. Please see the Safety and General Information section about body
worn operation.

Safety and General Information
This section contains important information on the safe and
efficient operation of your mobile device. Read this information
before using your mobile device.
Exposure to Radio Frequency (RF) Energy
Your mobile device contains a transmitter and receiver. When it is ON, it
receives and transmits RF energy. When you communicate with your
mobile device, the system handling your call controls the power level at
which your mobile device transmits.
Your Motorola mobile device is designed to comply with local regulatory
requirements in your country concerning exposure of human beings to RF
Operational Precautions
For optimal mobile device performance, and to be sure that human
exposure to RF energy does not exceed the guidelines set forth in the
relevant standards, always follow these instructions and precautions.
Product Operation
When placing or receiving a phone call, hold your mobile device just like
you would a landline phone.
If you wear the mobile device on your body, always place the mobile device
in a Motorola-supplied or approved clip, holder, holster, case, or body
harness. If you do not use a body-worn accessory supplied or approved by
Motorola—or if you hang your mobile device from a lanyard around your
neck—keep the mobile device and its antenna at least 2.5 centimeters
(1 inch) from your body when transmitting.
Using accessories not supplied or approved by Motorola may cause your
mobile device to exceed RF energy exposure guidelines. For a list of
Motorola-supplied or approved accessories, visit our Web site at:
Safety Information
RF Energy Interference/Compatibility
Nearly every electronic device is subject to RF energy interference from
external sources if inadequately shielded, designed, or otherwise
configured for RF energy compatibility. In some circumstances your mobile
device may cause interference with other devices.
Follow Instructions to Avoid Interference Problems
Turn off your mobile device in any location where posted notices instruct
you to do so.
In an aircraft, turn off your mobile device whenever instructed to do so by
airline staff. If your mobile device offers an airplane mode or similar
feature, consult airline staff about using it in flight.
Implantable Medical Devices
If you have an implantable medical device, such as a pacemaker or
defibrillator, consult your physician before using this mobile device.
Persons with implantable medical devices should observe the following
• ALWAYS keep the mobile device more than 20 centimeters (8 inches)
from the implantable medical device when the mobile device is turned
• DO NOT carry the mobile device in the breast pocket.
• Use the ear opposite the implantable medical device to minimize the
potential for interference.
• Turn OFF the mobile device immediately if you have any reason to
suspect that interference is taking place.
Read and follow the directions from the manufacturer of your implantable
medical device. If you have any questions about using your mobile device
with your implantable medical device, consult your healthcare provider.
Driving Precautions
The use of wireless phones while driving may cause distraction.
Discontinue a call if you can’t concentrate on driving.
Additionally, the use of wireless devices and their accessories may be
prohibited or restricted in certain areas. Always obey the laws and
regulations on the use of these products.
Responsible driving practices can be found in the “Smart Practices While
Driving” section in this guide (or separate guide).
Operational Warnings
Obey all posted signs when using mobile devices in public areas.
Potentially Explosive Atmospheres
Areas with potentially explosive atmospheres are often, but not always,
posted and can include fueling areas, such as below decks on boats, fuel
or chemical transfer or storage facilities, or areas where the air contains
chemicals or particles, such as grain dust, or metal powders.
When you are in such an area, turn off your mobile device, and do not
remove, install, or charge batteries. In such areas, sparks can occur and
cause an explosion or fire.

• A choking hazard may exist for small, detachable parts.
• Improper use could result in loud sounds, possibly causing hearing
• Improperly handled batteries could overheat and cause a burn.
Glass Parts
Some parts of your mobile device may be made of glass. This glass could
break if the product is dropped on a hard surface or receives a substantial
impact. If glass breaks, do not touch or attempt to remove. Stop using your
mobile device until the glass is replaced by a qualified service center.
Some people may be susceptible to epileptic seizures or blackouts when
exposed to flashing lights, such as when playing video games. These may
occur even if a person has never had a previous seizure or blackout.
If you have experienced seizures or blackouts, or if you have a family
history of such occurrences, please consult with your physician before
playing video games or enabling a flashing-lights feature (if available) on
your mobile device.
Discontinue use and consult a physician if any of the following symptoms
occur: convulsion, eye or muscle twitching, loss of awareness, involuntary
movements, or disorientation. It is always a good idea to hold the screen
away from your eyes, leave the lights on in the room, take a 15-minute
break every hour, and stop use if you are tired.
Caution About High Volume Usage
Warning: Exposure to loud noise from any source for
extended periods of time may affect your hearing. The
louder the volume sound level, the less time is required
before your hearing could be affected. To protect
your hearing:
• Limit the amount of time you use headsets or headphones at high
• Avoid turning up the volume to block out noisy surroundings.
• Turn the volume down if you can’t hear people speaking near you.
If you experience hearing discomfort, including the sensation of pressure
or fullness in your ears, ringing in your ears, or muffled speech, you should
stop listening to the device through your headset or headphones and have
your hearing checked.

Smart Practices While Driving
Driving Safety
Drive Safe, Call Smart
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, handsfree use only. Go to
callsmart (in English only) for more information.
Your mobile device lets you communicate by voice and data—almost
anywhere, anytime, wherever wireless service is available and safe
conditions allow. When driving a car, driving is your first responsibility. If
you choose to use your mobile device while driving, remember the
following tips:
• Get to know your Motorola mobile device and its features such
as speed dial and redial. If available, these features help you to place
your call without taking your attention off the road.
• When available, use a handsfree
device. If possible, add an additional layer
of convenience to your mobile device with
one of the many Motorola Original
handsfree accessories available today.
• Position your mobile device within easy reach. Be able to access
your mobile device without removing your eyes from the road. If you
receive an incoming call at an inconvenient time, if possible, let your
voicemail answer it for you.
• Let the person you are speaking with know you are driving; if
necessary, suspend the call in heavy traffic or hazardous
weather conditions. Rain, sleet, snow, ice, and even heavy traffic can
be hazardous.
• Do not take notes or look up phone numbers while driving. Jotting
down a “to do” list or going through your address book takes attention
away from your primary responsibility—driving safely.
• Dial sensibly and assess the traffic; if possible, place calls when
your car is not moving or before pulling into traffic. If you must
make a call while moving, dial only a few numbers, check the road and
your mirrors, then continue.
• Do not engage in stressful or emotional conversations that may
be distracting. Make people you are talking with aware you are driving
and suspend conversations that can divert your attention away from the
• Use your mobile device to call for help. Dial 999 or other local
emergency number in the case of fire, traffic accident, or medical
• Use your mobile device to help others in emergencies. If you see
an auto accident, crime in progress, or other serious emergency where
lives are in danger, call 999 or other local emergency number, as you
would want others to do for you.*
• Call roadside assistance or a special non-emergency wireless
assistance number when necessary. If you see a broken-down
vehicle posing no serious hazard, a broken traffic signal, a minor traffic
accident where no one appears injured, or a vehicle you know to be
stolen, call roadside assistance or other special non-emergency wireless
