Managing Downloads
Files, apps, and other items you download via Internet, Gmail,
Email, or in other ways, are stored on your tablet’s internal
storage. You can use the Downloads app to view, reopen, or

an oversized-file, you are asked or required to delay
downloading the file until the next time you are connected to a
Wi-Fi network. At that time, the download resumes
automatically. The Downloads app can also be used to view
and manage these queued files.
Downloaded files are stored in the Download directory in your
tablet’s internal storage. You can view and copy files from this
directory when connected to a computer with a USB cable.

Section 11: Health and Safety
Getting the Most Out of Your Reception
Keeping Tabs on Signal Strength
The quality of each call you make or receive depends on the
signal strength in your area. Your phone informs you of the
current signal strength by displaying a number of bars next to
the signal strength icon. The more bars displayed, the
stronger the signal. If you’re inside a building, being near a
window may give you better reception.
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
watts to 0.2 watts in digital mode.
Maintaining Your Phone’s Peak Performance
There are several simple guidelines for operating your phone
properly and maintaining safe, satisfactory service.
• Speak directly into the mouthpiece.
156
• 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. If it’s inoperable, return it to a dealer store or
call Customer Support for service.
Note: For the best care of your phone, only authorized
personnel should service your phone and accessories.
Faulty service may void the warranty.
Maintaining Safe Use of and Access to
Your Phone
Failure to follow the instructions outlined may lead to serious
personal injury and possible property damage.
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.
When using your phone in the car:
• Get to know your phone and its features, such as speed dial
and re-dial.
• When available, use a hands-free device.
• Position your phone within easy reach.
• Let the person you are speaking to know you are driving. If
necessary, suspend the call in heavy traffic or hazardous weather
conditions.
• Do not take notes or look up phone numbers while driving.
• Dial sensibly and assess the traffic. If possible, place calls when
stationary or before pulling into traffic.
• Do not engage in stressful or emotional conversations that may
divert your attention from the road.
• Dial 911 to report serious emergencies. It’s free from your wireless
phone.
• Use your phone to help others in emergencies.
• Call roadside assistance or a special non-emergency wireless
number when necessary.
Note: Always turn off the phone in health care 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, Transport Canada
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, 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 off your
phone when in a blasting area or in other areas with signs
indicating that two-way radios should be turned off.
Construction crews often use remote-control RF devices to set
off explosives.
Turn off your phone when you are in an area with a
potentially explosive atmosphere. Although it is rare, your
phone or its accessories could generate sparks. Sparks
Health and Safety
157
could cause an explosion or a fire resulting in bodily
injury or even death. These areas are often, but not
always, clearly marked.
These areas include:
• Fueling areas such as gas stations.
• Below deck on boats.
• Fuel or chemical transfer or storage facilities.
• Areas where the air contains chemicals or particles such as grain,
dust, or metal powders.
• Any other area where you would normally be advised to turn off
your vehicle’s engine.
Note: Never transport or store flammable gas, liquid, or
explosives in the compartment of your vehicle that
contains your phone or its accessories.
Restricting Children’s Access to your Phone
Your phone is not a toy. Children should not be allowed to play
with it because they could hurt themselves and others,
damage the phone, dial 911 by mistake, or make calls that
increase your phone bill.
Warning Regarding Display
The display on your handset is made of glass or acrylic and
could break if your handset is dropped or if it receives
significant impact. Do not use if screen is broken or cracked as
this could cause injury to you.
Caring for the Battery
Protecting Your Battery
The guidelines listed below help you get the most out of your
battery’s performance.
• Use only Samsung approved batteries and desktop chargers.
These chargers are designed to maximize battery life. Using other
batteries or chargers voids your warranty and may cause damage.
• In order to avoid damage, charge the battery only in temperatures
that range from 32º F to 113º F (0º C to 45º C).
• Don’t use the battery charger in direct sunlight or in high humidity
areas, such as the bathroom.
• Never dispose of the battery by incineration.
• Keep the metal contacts on top of the battery clean.
• Don’t attempt to disassemble or short-circuit the battery.
• The battery may need recharging if it has not been used for a long
period of time.
158
• t’s best to replace the battery when it no longer provides acceptable
performance. When used correctly, the battery 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:
– Less than one month:
-4º F to 140º F (-20º C to 60º C)
– More than one month:
-4º F to 113º F (-20º C to 45º C)
Disposal of Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) Batteries
For safe disposal options of your Li-Ion batteries, contact your
nearest 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.
Note: For safety, do not handle a damaged or leaking Li-Ion
battery.
Acknowledging Special Precautions
and Industry Canada Notice
Cautions
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.
Only use approved batteries, antennas, and chargers. The
use of any unauthorized accessories may be dangerous and
void the phone warranty if said accessories cause damage or
a defect to the phone.
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.
Information to User
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the
limits of a Class B digital device. These limits are designed to
provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in
a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses, and
can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and
used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful
interference to radio communications. However, there is no
guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular
Health and Safety
159
installation; if this equipment does cause harmful interference
to radio or television reception, which can be determined by
turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try
to correct the interference by one or more of the following
measures:
• Reorient/relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that
to which the receiver is connected.
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for
help.
Warning! At very high volumes, prolonged listening to a headset
can damage your hearing.
Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) for Wireless
Phones
The SAR is a value that corresponds to the relative amount of
RF energy absorbed in 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
160
highest value in strict laboratory settings. But when in
operation, the SAR of a phone can be substantially less than
the level reported to Industry Canada. 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.
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.
The highest reported SAR value for the I467M is:
Body: 1.09W/kg
This phone has been tested and meets RF exposure
guidelines when used with an accessory that contains no
metal and that positions the mobile device 0 cm from the body.
Owner’s Record
The model number, regulatory number, and serial number are
located on a nameplate inside the battery compartment.
