Safety, Regulatory & Legal
Battery Use & 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.
• Don’t disassemble, crush, puncture, shred, or otherwise attempt to
change the form of your battery.
• Don’t let the mobile device or battery come in contact with water.* Water
can get into the mobile device’s circuits, leading to corrosion. If the mobile device
and/or battery get wet, have them checked by your service provider or contact
Motorola, even if they appear to be working properly.*
• 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 mobile device or battery near a heat source.* Excessive
heat can damage the mobile device or the battery. High temperatures can cause
the battery to swell, leak, or malfunction. Therefore:
• Don’t dry a wet or damp battery with an appliance or heat source, such as
a hair dryer or microwave oven.
• Do avoid leaving your mobile device in your car in high temperatures.*
• Do avoid dropping the battery or mobile device.* Dropping these items,
especially on a hard surface, can potentially cause damage.*
• Do contact your service provider or Motorola if your mobile device or
battery has been damaged from dropping or high temperatures.
* Note: Always make sure that the battery compartment is closed and secure to
avoid direct exposure of the battery to any of these conditions.
Important: Use Motorola Original products for quality assurance and
safeguards. To aid consumers in identifying authentic Motorola batteries from
non-original or counterfeit batteries (that may not have adequate safety protection),
Battery Use & Safety
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”
• If there is no hologram, the battery is not a Motorola battery;
• If there is a hologram, replace the battery and try charging it again;
• If the message remains, contact a Motorola authorized service center.
Important: Motorola’s warranty does not cover damage to the mobile device 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 and safe battery disposal and recycling: 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.
Battery Charging
Notes for charging your product’s battery:
• When charging your battery, keep it near room temperature. Never expose
batteries to temperatures below 0°C (32°F) or above 45°C (113°F) when
• New batteries are not fully charged.
• New batteries or batteries stored for a long time may take more time to charge.
Battery Charging
• Motorola batteries and charging systems have circuitry that protects the battery
from damage from overcharging.
Driving Precautions
Responsible and safe driving is your primary responsibility when behind the wheel
of a vehicle. Using a mobile device or accessory for a call or other application while
driving may cause distraction. Using a mobile device or accessory may be prohibited
or restricted in certain areas, always obey the laws and regulations on the use of
these products.
While driving, NEVER:
• Type or read texts.
• Enter or review written data.
• Surf the web.
• Input navigation information.
• Perform any other functions that divert your attention from driving.
While driving, ALWAYS:
• Keep your eyes on the road.
• Use a handsfree device if available or required by law in your area.
• Enter destination information into a navigation device before driving.
• Use voice activated features (such as voice dial) and speaking features (such as
audible directions), if available.
• Obey all local laws and regulations for the use of mobile devices and accessories
in the vehicle.
• End your call or other task if you cannot concentrate on driving.
Remember to follow the “Smart Practices While Driving” in this guide and at (in English only).
Some people may be susceptible to epileptic seizures or blackouts when exposed to
flashing lights, such as when playing videos or 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 videos or 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 volume.
• 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.
For more information about hearing, see our Web site at (in English
Repetitive Motion
When you repetitively perform actions such as pressing keys or entering
finger-written characters, you may experience occasional discomfort in your hands,
arms, shoulders, neck, or other parts of your body. If you continue to have discomfort
during or after such use, stop use and see a physician.
Small Children
Keep your mobile device and its accessories away from small children.
These products are not toys and may be hazardous to small children. For example:
• A choking hazard may exist for small, detachable parts.
• Improper use could result in loud sounds, possibly causing hearing injury.
• 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.
Operational Warnings

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.
Symbol Key
Your battery, charger, or mobile device may contain symbols, defined as follows:
Important safety information follows.
Do not dispose of your battery or mobile device in a fire.
Your battery or mobile device may require recycling in
accordance with local laws. Contact your local regulatory
authorities for more information.
Listening at full volume to music or voice through a headset may
damage your hearing.
Radio Frequency (RF) Energy
Exposure to 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
Your mobile device is designed to comply with local regulatory requirements in your
country concerning exposure of human beings to RF energy.
RF Energy 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:
• 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, 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:
Specific Absorption Rate (IEEE)
RF Energy Interference/Compatibility
Your mobile device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed and
manufactured to not exceed limits for exposure to radio frequency (RF) energy set by
the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) of the U.S. Government and by the
Canadian regulatory authorities. These limits are part of comprehensive guidelines
and establish permitted levels of RF energy for the general population. The
guidelines are based on standards that were developed by independent scientific
organizations through periodic and thorough evaluation of scientific studies. The
standards include a substantial safety margin designed for the safety of all persons,
regardless of age or health, and to account for any variations in measurements.
The exposure standard for mobile devices employs a unit of measurement known as
the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR). The IEEE SAR limit set by the FCC and by the
Canadian regulatory authorities is 1.6 watts per kilogram (W/kg), averaged over one
gram of tissue. Tests for SAR are conducted using procedures accepted by the FCC
and by Industry Canada with the mobile device transmitting at its highest certified
power level in all tested frequencies. Although the SAR is determined at the highest
certified power level, the actual SAR level of the mobile device while operating can
be below the maximum value. This is because the mobile device 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, the lower the
power output.
Before a mobile device is available for sale to the public in the U.S. and Canada, it
must be tested and certified to the FCC and Industry Canada that it does not exceed
the limit established by each government for safe exposure. The tests are performed
in positions and locations (e.g., at the ear and worn on the body) submitted to the
FCC and available for review by Industry Canada. The highest SAR value for this
mobile device when tested for use at the ear is 1,1 W/kg, and when worn on the

Specific Absorption Rate (ICNIRP)
Your model wireless phone meets international
guidelines for exposure to radio waves.
Your mobile device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed to not 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 health, and to account for any variations in measurements.
The guidelines use a unit of measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate
(SAR). The ICNIRP SAR limit for mobile devices used by the general public is 2 watts
per kilogram (W/kg), and the highest SAR value for this mobile device when tested
at the ear is 0,65 W/kg. As mobile devices offer a range of functions, they can be
used in other positions, such as on the body as described in this guide. In this case,
the highest tested SAR value is 0,72 W/kg. The tests are carried out in accordance
with international guidelines for testing. The SAR information includes the Motorola
testing protocol, assessment procedure, and measurement uncertainty range for this
As SAR is measured utilizing the mobile device’s highest transmitting power, the
actual SAR of this mobile device while operating is typically below that indicated
above. This is due to automatic changes to the power level of the mobile 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 mobile devices
and at various positions, they 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 device away from the
head and body.
Additional Information can be found on the Web sites of the World Health
Organization ( or Motorola Mobility, Inc.

The following statement applies to all products that have received FCC
approval. Applicable products bear the FCC logo, and/or an FCC ID in the
format FCC ID:xxxxxx on the product label.
Motorola has not approved any changes or modifications to this device by the user.
Any changes or modifications could void the user’s authority to operate the
equipment. See 47 CFR Sec. 15.21.
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. See 47 CFR Sec. 15.19(3).
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B
digital device, pursuant to part 15 of the FCC Rules. 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 installation. If this equipment does cause

Your mobile device can use Global Positioning System (GPS) signals for
location-based applications. GPS uses satellites controlled by the U.S. government
that are subject to changes implemented in accordance with the Department of
Defense policy and the Federal Radio Navigation Plan. These changes may affect
the performance of location technology on your mobile device.
Your mobile device can also use Assisted Global Positioning System (AGPS), which
obtains information from the cellular network to improve GPS performance. AGPS
uses your wireless service provider's network and therefore 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. Devices enabled with GPS or
AGPS technology also transmit location-based information. Additionally, if you use
applications that require location-based information (e.g. driving directions), such
applications transmit location-based information. This location-based information
may be shared with third parties, including your wireless service provider,
applications providers, Motorola, and other third parties providing services.
Emergency Calls
When you make an emergency call, the cellular network may activate the AGPS
technology in your mobile device to tell the emergency responders your approximate
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
• Remain on the phone for as long as the emergency responder instructs you.
Performance Tips
• Go outside and away from underground locations, covered vehicles, structures
with metal or concrete roofs, tall buildings, and foliage. Indoor performance
might improve if you move closer to windows, but some window sun shielding
films can block satellite signals.
• Move away from radios, entertainment equipment, and other electronic devices.
When using navigation features, note that mapping information, directions and
other navigational data may contain inaccurate or incomplete data. In some
countries, complete information may not be available. Therefore, you should visually
confirm that the navigational instructions are consistent with what you see. All
drivers should pay attention to road conditions, closures, traffic, and all other factors
that may impact driving. Always obey posted road signs.
Smart Practices While Driving
Driving Safety
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 may be required. Go to (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, redial and voice dial. 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
• 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 road.
• Use your mobile device to call for help. Dial 911 or other local emergency
number in the case of fire, traffic accident, or medical emergencies (wherever
wireless phone service is available).
• 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 911 or other local emergency number (wherever wireless phone
service is available), 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 number (wherever wireless
phone service is available).
