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.
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
2 Safety
i747M_SWG.book Page 3 Friday, May 25, 2012 2:06 PM
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 a hybrid
standard consisting of the existing ANSI/IEEE standard
and the guidelines published by the National Council of
Radiation Protection and Measurements (NCRP).
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.
• 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.
Safety 3
i747M_SWG.book Page 4 Friday, May 25, 2012 2:06 PM
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 nonemergency wireless number when necessary.

i747M_SWG.book Page 5 Friday, May 25, 2012 2:06 PM
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 and/
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 health care facilities
and request permission before using the phone near
medical equipment.
Safety 5
i747M_SWG.book Page 6 Friday, May 25, 2012 2:06 PM
Turning Off Your Phone Before Flying
Turn off your phone before boarding any aircraft. To
prevent possible interference with aircraft systems, 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 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 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.
6 Safety
i747M_SWG.book Page 7 Friday, May 25, 2012 2:06 PM
• 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
Safety 7
i747M_SWG.book Page 8 Friday, May 25, 2012 2:06 PM
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.
• It’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 (LiIon) Batteries
For safe disposal options of your LiIon batteries, contact
your nearest service center.
8 Safety
i747M_SWG.book Page 9 Friday, May 25, 2012 2:06 PM
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
LiIon battery.

i747M_SWG.book Page 11 Friday, May 25, 2012 2:06 PM
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 highest value in strict laboratory
settings. However, 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.
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 recorded SAR values for the I747M are:
Head: 0.43W/kg; Body: 1.26W/kg.
