Section 5: Entering Text
This section describes how to enter words, letters, punctuation
and numbers when you need to enter text.
Virtual QWERTY Keyboard
Your phone uses a virtual QWERTY keyboard for text entry. Use
the keyboard to enter letters, punctuation, numbers, and other
characters into text entry fields or applications. Access the
keyboard by touching any text entry field.
The virtual QWERTY keyboard displays at the bottom of the
screen. By default, when you rotate the phone, the screen
orientation updates to display the keyboard at the bottom of the
screen.
Text Input Methods
Your phone offers two text input methods:
• Swype: Swype is a new text input method that allows you to enter
words by gliding your finger over the virtual QWERTY keyboard, lifting
your finger between words. You can also enable Word prediction,
which matches your key touches to common words.
• Android Keyboard: The Android Keyboard is a virtual QWERTY
keyboard that allows you to enter text by touching keys on the screen.
Android Keyboard includes predictive text, which matches your key
touches to common words so that you can select the word to enter it
into your text.

Entering Text Using Swype
Swype is a new way to enter text on touch screens. Instead of
touching each key, use your finger to trace over each letter of a
word. For each word, place your finger on the first letter and glide
to the subsequent letters, lifting on the last letter.
This example shows how to enter the word “this”. Put your finger
down on the “t”, and without lifting, glide it to the “h”, then to the
“i” then over to the “s”.
Here are a few tips to get you started:
• Spacing is automatic: When you finish a word, just lift your finger and
start the next word.
• Double letters: Just “scribble” on the key.
• Capitalization: Swype recognizes and capitalizes the first word of
sentences. If you want to capitalize a word that isn’t at the beginning
of a sentence, just glide above the keyboard before gliding over the
next letter.
• Contractions: Swype recognizes most words that include an
apostrophe; just swype the letters of the word, including the
apostrophe.
• Punctuation: Tap and hold a key to view a punctuation menu and
make a selection.
• Accented characters: Just glide through the letters of the word.
Swype usually recognizes the word and correctly accents the letters.
• Error correction: If you make a mistake, double-tap on the word you
want to change.
Configuring Swype
Configure Swype to your preferences.
• For more information, see “Swype” on page 132.

Section 13: Health and Safety Information
This section outlines the safety precautions associated with using
your phone. These safety precautions should be followed to
safely use your phone.
Health and Safety Information
Exposure to Radio Frequency (RF) Signals
Certification Information (SAR)
Your wireless phone is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is
designed and manufactured not to exceed the exposure limits for
radio frequency (RF) energy set by the Federal Communications
Commission (FCC) of the U.S. government.
These FCC exposure limits are derived from the
recommendations of two expert organizations, the National
Counsel on Radiation Protection and Measurement (NCRP) and
the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
In both cases, the recommendations were developed by scientific
and engineering experts drawn from industry, government, and
academia after extensive reviews of the scientific literature
related to the biological effects of RF energy.
The exposure limit set by the FCC for wireless mobile phones
employs a unit of measurement known as the Specific
Absorption Rate (SAR). The SAR is a measure of the rate of
136
absorption of RF energy by the human body expressed in units of
watts per kilogram (W/kg). The FCC requires wireless phones to
comply with a safety limit of 1.6 watts per kilogram (1.6 W/kg).
The FCC exposure limit incorporates a substantial margin of
safety to give additional protection to the public and to account
for any variations in measurements.
SAR tests are conducted using standard operating positions
accepted by the FCC with the phone transmitting at its highest
certified power level in all tested frequency bands. Although the
SAR is determined at the highest certified power level, the actual
SAR level of the phone while operating can be well below the
maximum value. This is because the phone 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 antenna, the lower the power output.
Before a new model phone is available for sale to the public, it
must be tested and certified to the FCC that it does not exceed
the exposure limit established by the FCC. Tests for each model
phone are performed in positions and locations (e.g. at the ear
and worn on the body) as required by the FCC.
For body worn operation, this phone has been tested and meets
FCC RF exposure guidelines when used with an accessory that
contains no metal and that positions the handset a minimum of
1.5 cm from the body.
Please Note the Following Information When
Using Your Handset
1.
The display on your handset is made of glass or acrylic and
Use of other accessories may not ensure compliance with FCC RF
exposure guidelines.
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this mobile
phone with all reported SAR levels evaluated as in compliance
with the FCC RF exposure guidelines. The maximum SAR values
for this model phone as reported to the FCC are:
• Head: 0.57 W/Kg.
• Body-worn: 0.52 W/Kg.
SAR information on this and other model phones can be viewed
online at http://www.fcc.gov/oet/ea. To find information that
pertains to a particular model phone, this site uses the phone
FCC ID number which is usually printed somewhere on the case
of the phone.
Sometimes it may be necessary to remove the battery pack to
find the number. Once you have the FCC ID number for a
particular phone, follow the instructions on the website and it
should provide values for typical or maximum SAR for a particular
phone. Additional product specific SAR information can also be
obtained at www.fcc.gov/cgb/sar.
WARNING REGARDING DISPLAY

Consumer Information on Wireless Phones
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has published a
series of Questions and Answers for consumers relating to radio
frequency (RF) exposure from wireless phones. The FDA
publication includes the following information:
138
What kinds of phones are the subject of this update?
The term wireless phone refers here to hand-held wireless
phones with built-in antennas, often called "cell," "mobile," or
"PCS" phones. These types of wireless phones can expose the
user to measurable radio frequency energy (RF) because of the
short distance between the phone and the user's head. These RF
exposures are limited by Federal Communications Commission
safety guidelines that were developed with the advice of FDA and
other federal health and safety agencies.
When the phone is located at greater distances from the user, the
exposure to RF is drastically lower because a person's RF
exposure decreases rapidly with increasing distance from the
source. The so-called "cordless phones," which have a base unit
connected to the telephone wiring in a house, typically operate at
far lower power levels, and thus produce RF exposures well
within the FCC's compliance limits.
Do wireless phones pose a health hazard?
The available scientific evidence does not show that any health
problems are associated with using wireless phones. There is no
proof, however, that wireless phones are absolutely safe.
Wireless phones emit low levels of radio frequency energy (RF) in
the microwave range while being used. They also emit very low
levels of RF when in the stand-by mode. Whereas high levels of
RF can produce health effects (by heating tissue), exposure to
low level RF that does not produce heating effects causes no
known adverse health effects. Many studies of low level RF
exposures have not found any biological effects. Some studies
have suggested that some biological effects may occur, but such
findings have not been confirmed by additional research. In some
cases, other researchers have had difficulty in reproducing those
studies, or in determining the reasons for inconsistent results.
What is FDA's role concerning the safety of wireless
phones?
Under the law, FDA does not review the safety of radiationemitting consumer products such as wireless phones before they
can be sold, as it does with new drugs or medical devices.
However, the agency has authority to take action if wireless
phones are shown to emit radio frequency energy (RF) at a level
that is hazardous to the user. In such a case, FDA could require
the manufacturers of wireless phones to notify users of the
health hazard and to repair, replace or recall the phones so that
the hazard no longer exists.
Although the existing scientific data do not justify FDA regulatory
actions, FDA has urged the wireless phone industry to take a
number of steps, including the following:
• Support needed research into possible biological effects of RF of the
type emitted by wireless phones;
• Design wireless phones in a way that minimizes any RF exposure to
the user that is not necessary for device function; and
• Cooperate in providing users of wireless phones with the best possible
information on possible effects of wireless phone use on human
health.
FDA belongs to an interagency working group of the federal
agencies that have responsibility for different aspects of RF
safety to ensure coordinated efforts at the federal level. The
following agencies belong to this working group:
• National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health
• Environmental Protection Agency
• Federal Communications Commission
• Occupational Safety and Health Administration
• National Telecommunications and Information Administration
The National Institutes of Health participates in some interagency
working group activities, as well.
FDA shares regulatory responsibilities for wireless phones with
the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). All phones that
are sold in the United States must comply with FCC safety
guidelines that limit RF exposure. FCC relies on FDA and other
health agencies for safety questions about wireless phones.
Health and Safety Information
139
FCC also regulates the base stations that the wireless phone
networks rely upon. While these base stations operate at higher
power than do the wireless phones themselves, the RF
exposures that people get from these base stations are typically
thousands of times lower than those they can get from wireless
phones.
Base stations are thus not the primary subject of the safety
questions discussed in this document.
What are the results of the research done already?
The research done thus far has produced conflicting results, and
many studies have suffered from flaws in their research
methods. Animal experiments investigating the effects of radio
frequency energy (RF) exposures characteristic of wireless
phones have yielded conflicting results that often cannot be
repeated in other laboratories. A few animal studies, however,
have suggested that low levels of RF could accelerate the
development of cancer in laboratory animals.
However, many of the studies that showed increased tumor
development used animals that had been genetically engineered
or treated with cancer-causing chemicals so as to be predisposed to develop cancer in absence of RF exposure. Other
studies exposed the animals to RF for up to 22 hours per day.
These conditions are not similar to the conditions under which
140
people use wireless phones, so we don't know with certainty
what the results of such studies mean for human health.
Three large epidemiology studies have been published since
December 2000. Between them, the studies investigated any
possible association between the use of wireless phones and
primary brain cancer, glioma, meningioma, or acoustic neuroma,
tumors of the brain or salivary gland, leukemia, or other cancers.
None of the studies demonstrated the existence of any harmful
health effects from wireless phones RF exposures.
However, none of the studies can answer questions about longterm exposures, since the average period of phone use in these
studies was around three years.
What research is needed to decide whether RF exposure
from wireless phones poses a health risk?
A combination of laboratory studies and epidemiological studies
of people actually using wireless phones would provide some of
the data that are needed. Lifetime animal exposure studies could
be completed in a few years.
However, very large numbers of animals would be needed to
provide reliable proof of a cancer promoting effect if one exists.
Epidemiological studies can provide data that is directly
applicable to human populations, but ten or more years' followup may be needed to provide answers about some health effects,
such as cancer.
This is because the interval between the time of exposure to a
cancer-causing agent and the time tumors develop - if they do may be many, many years. The interpretation of epidemiological
studies is hampered by difficulties in measuring actual RF
exposure during day-to-day use of wireless phones. Many
factors affect this measurement, such as the angle at which the
phone is held, or which model of phone is used.
What is FDA doing to find out more about the possible
health effects of wireless phone RF?
FDA is working with the U.S. National Toxicology Program and
with groups of investigators around the world to ensure that high
priority animal studies are conducted to address important
questions about the effects of exposure to radio frequency
energy (RF). FDA has been a leading participant in the World
Health Organization international Electromagnetic Fields (EMF)
Project since its inception in 1996.
An influential result of this work has been the development of a
detailed agenda of research needs that has driven the
establishment of new research programs around the world. The
Project has also helped develop a series of public information
documents on EMF issues.
FDA and Cellular Telecommunications & Internet Association
(CTIA) have a formal Cooperative Research and Development
Agreement (CRADA) to do research on wireless phone safety.
FDA provides the scientific oversight, obtaining input from
experts in government, industry, and academic organizations.
CTIA-funded research is conducted through contracts to
independent investigators. The initial research will include both
laboratory studies and studies of wireless phone users. The
CRADA will also include a broad assessment of additional
research needs in the context of the latest research
developments around the world.
What steps can I take to reduce my exposure to radio
frequency energy from my wireless phone?
If there is a risk from these products - and at this point we do not
know that there is - it is probably very small. But if you are
concerned about avoiding even potential risks, you can take a
few simple steps to minimize your exposure to radio frequency
energy (RF).
Since time is a key factor in how much exposure a person
receives, reducing the amount of time spent using a wireless
phone will reduce RF exposure.
• If you must conduct extended conversations by wireless phone every
day, you could place more distance between your body and the source
of the RF, since the exposure level drops off dramatically with distance.
For example, you could use a headset and carry the wireless phone
away from your body or use a wireless phone connected to a remote
antenna.
Health and Safety Information
141
Again, the scientific data do not demonstrate that wireless
phones are harmful. But if you are concerned about the RF
exposure from these products, you can use measures like those
described above to reduce your RF exposure from wireless phone
use.
What about children using wireless phones?
The scientific evidence does not show a danger to users of
wireless phones, including children and teenagers. If you want to
take steps to lower exposure to radio frequency energy (RF), the
measures described above would apply to children and
teenagers using wireless phones. Reducing the time of wireless
phone use and increasing the distance between the user and the
RF source will reduce RF exposure.
Some groups sponsored by other national governments have
advised that children be discouraged from using wireless phones
at all. For example, the government in the United Kingdom
distributed leaflets containing such a recommendation in
December 2000.
They noted that no evidence exists that using a wireless phone
causes brain tumors or other ill effects. Their recommendation to
limit wireless phone use by children was strictly precautionary; it
was not based on scientific evidence that any health hazard
exists.
142
Do hands-free kits for wireless phones reduce
risks from exposure to RF emissions?
Since there are no known risks from exposure to RF emissions
from wireless phones, there is no reason to believe that handsfree kits reduce risks. Hands-free kits can be used with wireless
phones for convenience and comfort. These systems reduce the
absorption of RF energy in the head because the phone, which is
the source of the RF emissions, will not be placed against the
head. On the other hand, if the phone is mounted against the
waist or other part of the body during use, then that part of the
body will absorb more RF energy. Wireless phones marketed in
the U.S. are required to meet safety requirements regardless of
whether they are used against the head or against the body.
Either configuration should result in compliance with the safety
limit.
Do wireless phone accessories that claim to shield
the head from RF radiation work?
Since there are no known risks from exposure to RF emissions
from wireless phones, there is no reason to believe that
accessories that claim to shield the head from those emissions
reduce risks. Some products that claim to shield the user from RF
absorption use special phone cases, while others involve nothing
more than a metallic accessory attached to the phone.
Studies have shown that these products generally do not work as
advertised. Unlike "hand-free" kits, these so-called "shields"
may interfere with proper operation of the phone. The phone may
be forced to boost its power to compensate, leading to an
increase in RF absorption. In February 2002, the Federal trade
Commission (FTC) charged two companies that sold devices that
claimed to protect wireless phone users from radiation with
making false and unsubstantiated claims.
According to FTC, these defendants lacked a reasonable basis to
substantiate their claim.
What about wireless phone interference with
medical equipment?
Radio frequency energy (RF) from wireless phones can interact
with some electronic devices. For this reason, FDA helped
develop a detailed test method to measure electromagnetic
interference (EMI) of implanted cardiac pacemakers and
defibrillators from wireless telephones. This test method is now
part of a standard sponsored by the Association for the
Advancement of Medical instrumentation (AAMI). The final draft,
a joint effort by FDA, medical device manufacturers, and many
other groups, was completed in late 2000. This standard will
allow manufacturers to ensure that cardiac pacemakers and
defibrillators are safe from wireless phone EMI. FDA has tested
wireless phones and helped develop a voluntary standard
sponsored by the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers
(IEEE). This standard specifies test methods and performance
requirements for hearing aids and wireless phones so that no
interference occurs when a person uses a compatible phone and
a compatible hearing aid at the same time. This standard was
approved by the IEEE in 2000.
FDA continues to monitor the use of wireless phones for possible
interactions with other medical devices. Should harmful
interference be found to occur, FDA will conduct testing to assess
the interference and work to resolve the problem.

Responsible Listening
Caution!: Avoid potential hearing loss.
Damage to hearing occurs when a person is exposed to loud
sounds over time. The risk of hearing loss increases as sound is
played louder and for longer durations. Prolonged exposure to
loud sounds (including music) is the most common cause of
preventable hearing loss. Some scientific research suggests that
using portable audio devices, such as portable music players and
cellular telephones, at high volume settings for long durations
may lead to permanent noise-induced hearing loss. This includes
the use of headphones (including headsets, earbuds, and
Bluetooth or other wireless devices). Exposure to very loud sound
has also been associated in some studies with tinnitus (a ringing
in the ear), hypersensitivity to sound and distorted hearing.
Health and Safety Information
145
Individual susceptibility to noise-induced hearing loss and
potential hearing problem varies. Additionally, the amount of
sound produced by a portable audio device varies depending on
the nature of the sound, the device settings, and the headphones
that are used. As a result, there is no single volume setting that is
appropriate for everyone or for every combination of sound,
settings and equipment.
• Avoid using headphones after exposure to extremely loud noises, such
You should follow some commonsense recommendations when
using any portable audio device:
• Set the volume in a quiet environment and select the lowest volume at
which you can hear adequately.
• When using headphones, turn the volume down if you cannot hear the
people speaking near you or if the person sitting next to you can hear
what you are listening to.
• Do not turn the volume up to block out noisy surroundings. If you
choose to listen to your portable device in a noisy environment, use
noise-cancelling headphones to block out background environmental
noise. By blocking background environment noise, noise cancelling
headphones should allow you to hear the music at lower volumes than
when using earbuds.
• Limit the amount of time you listen. As the volume increases, less time
is required before you hearing could be affected.
You can obtain additional information on this subject from the
following sources:

as rock concerts, that might cause temporary hearing loss. Temporary
hearing loss might cause unsafe volumes to sound normal.
• Do not listen at any volume that causes you discomfort. If you
experience ringing in your ears, hear muffled speech or experience
any temporary hearing difficulty after listening to your portable audio
device, discontinue use and consult your doctor.

Using Your Phone Near Other Electronic Devices
Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from radio
frequency (RF) signals. However, certain electronic equipment
may not be shielded against the RF signals from your wireless
phone. Consult the manufacturer to discuss alternatives.
Implantable Medical Devices
A minimum separation of six (6) inches should be maintained
between a handheld wireless phone and an implantable medical
device, such as a pacemaker or implantable cardioverter
defibrillator, to avoid potential interference with the device.
Health and Safety Information
147
Persons who have such devices:
• Should ALWAYS keep the phone more than six (6) inches from their
implantable medical device when the phone is turned ON;
• Should not carry the phone in a breast pocket;
• Should use the ear opposite the implantable medical device to
minimize the potential for interference;
• Should turn the phone OFF immediately if there is any reason to
suspect that interference is taking place;
• Should read and follow the directions from the manufacturer of your
implantable medical device. If you have any questions about using
your wireless phone with such a device, consult your health care
provider.

FCC Hearing-Aid Compatibility (HAC)
Regulations for Wireless Devices
On July 10, 2003, the U.S. Federal Communications Commission
(FCC) Report and Order in WT Docket 01-309 modified the
exception of wireless phones under the Hearing Aid Compatibility
Act of 1988 (HAC Act) to require digital wireless phones be
compatible with hearing-aids.
148
The intent of the HAC Act is to ensure reasonable access to
telecommunications services for persons with hearing
disabilities.
While some wireless phones are used near some hearing devices
(hearing aids and cochlear implants), users may detect a
buzzing, humming, or whining noise. Some hearing devices are
more immune than others to this interference noise, and phones
also vary in the amount of interference they generate.
The wireless telephone industry has developed a rating system
for wireless phones, to assist hearing device users find phones
that may be compatible with their hearing devices. Not all phones
have been rated. Phones that are rated have the rating on their
box or a label located on the box.
The ratings are not guarantees. Results will vary depending on
the user's hearing device and hearing loss. If your hearing device
happens to be vulnerable to interference, you may not be able to
use a rated phone successfully. 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 and
are likely to generate less interference to hearing devices than
phones that are not labeled. M4 is the better/higher of the two
ratings.
T-Ratings: Phones rated T3 or T4 meet FCC requirements and are
likely to generate less interference to hearing devices than
phones that are not labeled. T4 is the better/higher of the two
ratings.
Hearing devices may also be rated. Your hearing device
manufacturer or hearing health professional may help you find
this rating. Higher ratings mean that the hearing device is
relatively immune to interference noise. The hearing aid and
wireless phone rating values are then added together.
A sum of 5 is considered acceptable for normal use. A sum of 6
is considered for best use.
M3

using their hearing aid with the particular wireless phone.
"Normal usage" in this context is defined as a signal quality that
is acceptable for normal operation.
The M mark is intended to be synonymous with the U mark. The
T mark is intended to be synonymous with the UT mark. The M
and T marks are recommended by the Alliance for
Telecommunications Industries Solutions (ATIS). The U and UT
marks are referenced in Section 20.19 of the FCC Rules.
The HAC rating and measurement procedure are described in the
American National Standards Institute (ANSI) C63.19 standard.
HAC/Wi-Fi Language
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 about its return and exchange policies and
for information on hearing aid compatibility.
In the above example, if a hearing aid meets the M2 level rating
and the wireless phone meets the M3 level rating, the sum of the
two values equal M5. This is synonymous for T ratings. This
should provide the hearing aid user with "normal usage" while
Health and Safety Information
149
Other Medical Devices
If you use any other personal medical devices, consult the
manufacturer of your device to determine if it is adequately
shielded from external RF energy. Your physician may be able to
assist you in obtaining this information. Switch your phone off in
health care facilities when any regulations posted in these areas
instruct you to do so. Hospitals or health care facilities may be
using equipment that could be sensitive to external RF energy.
Vehicles
RF signals may affect improperly installed or inadequately
shielded electronic systems in motor vehicles. Check with the
manufacturer or its representative regarding your vehicle. You
should also consult the manufacturer of any equipment that has
been added to your vehicle.
Posted Facilities
Switch your phone off in any facility where posted notices require
you to do so.
Potentially Explosive Environments
Switch your phone off when in any area with a potentially
explosive atmosphere and obey all signs and instructions. Sparks
in such areas could cause an explosion or fire resulting in bodily
injury or even death.
150
Users are advised to switch the phone off while at a refueling
point (service station). Users are reminded of the need to observe
restrictions on the use of radio equipment in fuel depots (fuel
storage and distribution areas), chemical plants or where blasting
operations are in progress.
Areas with a potentially explosive atmosphere are often but not
always clearly marked. They include below deck on boats,
chemical transfer or storage facilities, vehicles using liquefied
petroleum gas (such as propane or butane), areas where the air
contains chemicals or particles, such as grain, dust or metal
powders, and any other area where you would normally be
advised to turn off your vehicle engine.
Emergency Calls
This phone, like any wireless phone, operates using radio
signals, wireless and landline networks as well as userprogrammed functions, which cannot guarantee connection in all
conditions. Therefore, you should never rely solely on any
wireless phone for essential communications (medical
emergencies, for example).
Remember, to make or receive any calls the phone must be
switched on and in a service area with adequate signal strength.
Emergency calls may not be possible on all wireless phone
networks or when certain network services and/or phone
features are in use. Check with local service providers.
FCC Notice and Cautions
To make an emergency call:
1.
If the phone is not on, switch it on.
2.
From a Home screen, touch
Phone. Enter the
emergency number for your present location (for example,
911 or other official emergency number), then touch
to place the call.
If certain features are in use (call barring, for example), you may
first need to deactivate those features before you can make an
emergency call. Consult this document and your local cellular
service provider.
When making an emergency call, remember to give all the
necessary information as accurately as possible. Remember that
your phone may be the only means of communication at the
scene of an accident; do not cut off the call until given
permission to do so.
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 or make calls that increase your phone bill.
FCC Notice
The phone may cause TV or radio interference if used in close
proximity to receiving equipment. The FCC can require you to
stop using the phone if such interference cannot be eliminated.
Vehicles using liquefied petroleum gas (such as propane or
butane) must comply with the National Fire Protection Standard
(NFPA-58). For a copy of this standard, contact the National Fire
Protection Association:

• Do not store or carry flammable liquids, gases or explosive materials in
the same compartment as the phone, its parts or accessories.
• For vehicles equipped with an air bag, remember that an air bag
inflates with great force. Do not place objects, including both installed
or portable wireless equipment in the area over the air bag or in the air
bag deployment area. If wireless equipment is improperly installed and
the air bag inflates, serious injury could result.
• Switch your phone off before boarding an aircraft. The use of wireless
phone in aircraft is illegal and may be dangerous to the aircraft's
operation.
• Failure to observe these instructions may lead to the suspension or
denial of telephone services to the offender, or legal action, or both.
152
Product Performance
Getting the Most Out of Your Signal Reception
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 the Power Save Feature
If your phone is unable to find a signal after searching, a Power
Save feature is automatically activated. If your phone is active, it
periodically rechecks service availability or you can check it
yourself by pressing any key.
Anytime the Power Save feature is activated, a message displays
on the screen. When a signal is found, your phone returns to
standby mode.
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
For the best care of your phone, only authorized personnel should
service your phone and accessories. Faulty service may void the
warranty. There are several simple guidelines to operating your
phone properly and maintaining safe, satisfactory service.
• To ensure that the Hearing Aid Compatibility rating for your phone is
maintained, secondary transmitters such as Bluetooth and WLAN
components must be disabled during a call. For more information,
refer to “Turning Bluetooth On or Off” on page 111.
• If your phone is equipped with an external antenna, hold the phone
with the antenna raised, fully-extended and over your shoulder.
• Do not hold, bend or twist the phone's antenna, if applicable.
• Do not use the phone if the antenna is damaged.
• If your phone is equipped with an internal antenna, obstructing the
internal antenna could inhibit call performance.
• Speak directly into the phone's receiver.
• 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 is inoperable, call Customer Care for service.
Availability of Various Features/Ring Tones
Many services and features are network dependent and may
require additional subscription and/or usage charges. Not all
features are available for purchase or use in all areas.
Downloadable Ring Tones may be available at an additional cost.
Other conditions and restrictions may apply. See your service
provider for additional information.
Battery Standby and Talk Time
Standby and talk times will vary depending on phone usage
patterns and conditions. Battery power consumption depends on
factors such as network configuration, signal strength, operating
temperature, features selected, frequency of calls, and voice,
data, and other application usage patterns.
Battery Precautions
• Avoid dropping the cell phone. Dropping it, especially on a hard
surface, can potentially cause damage to the phone and battery. If you
suspect damage to the phone or battery, take it to a service center for
inspection.
• Never use any charger or battery that is damaged in any way.
• Do not modify or remanufacture the battery as this could result in
serious safety hazards.
• If you use the phone near the network's base station, it uses less
power; talk and standby time are greatly affected by the signal
strength on the cellular network and the parameters set by the
network operator.
• Follow battery usage, storage and charging guidelines found in the
user’s guide.
Health and Safety Information
153
• Battery charging time depends on the remaining battery charge and
• Do not leave the battery in hot or cold places, such as in a car in
the type of battery and charger used. The battery can be charged and
discharged hundreds of times, but it will gradually wear out. When the
operation time (talk time and standby time) is noticeably shorter than
normal, it is time to buy a new battery.
• If left unused, a fully charged battery will discharge itself over time.
• Use only Samsung-approved batteries and recharge your battery only
with Samsung-approved chargers. When a charger is not in use,
disconnect it from the power source. Do not leave the battery
connected to a charger for more than a week, since overcharging may
shorten its life.
• Do not use incompatible cell phone batteries and chargers. Some Web
sites and second-hand dealers, not associated with reputable
manufacturers and carriers, might be selling incompatible or even
counterfeit batteries and chargers. Consumers should purchase
manufacturer or carrier recommended products and accessories. If
unsure about whether a replacement battery or charger is compatible,
contact the manufacturer of the battery or charger.
• Misuse or use of incompatible phones, batteries, and charging devices
could result in damage to the equipment and a possible risk of fire,
explosion, leakage, or other serious hazard.
• Extreme temperatures will affect the charging capacity of your battery:
it may require cooling or warming first.
summer or winter conditions, as you will reduce the capacity and
lifetime of the battery. Always try to keep the battery at room
temperature. A phone with a hot or cold battery may temporarily not
work, even when the battery is fully charged. Li-ion batteries are
particularly affected by temperatures below
0 °C (32 °F).
• Do not place the phone in areas that may get very hot, such as on or
near a cooking surface, cooking appliance, iron, or radiator.
• Do not get your phone or battery wet. Even though they will dry and
appear to operate normally, the circuitry could slowly corrode and
pose a safety hazard.
• Do not short-circuit the battery. Accidental short-circuiting can occur
when a metallic object (coin, clip or pen) causes a direct connection
between the + and - terminals of the battery (metal strips on the
battery), for example when you carry a spare battery in a pocket or
bag. Short-circuiting the terminals may damage the battery or the
object causing the short-circuiting.
• Do not permit a battery out of the phone to come in contact with metal
objects, such as coins, keys or jewelry.
• Do not crush, puncture or put a high degree of pressure on the battery
as this can cause an internal short-circuit, resulting in overheating.
154
• Dispose of used batteries in accordance with local regulations. In some
areas, the disposal of batteries in household or business trash may be
prohibited. For safe disposal options for Li-Ion batteries, contact your
nearest Samsung authorized service center. Always recycle. Do not
dispose of batteries in a fire.
Care and Maintenance
Your phone is a product of superior design and craftsmanship
and should be treated with care. The suggestions below will help
you fulfill any warranty obligations and allow you to enjoy this
product for many years.
• Keep the phone and all its parts and accessories out of the reach of
small children.
• Keep the phone dry. Precipitation, humidity and liquids contain
minerals that will corrode electronic circuits.
• Do not use the phone with a wet hand. Doing so may cause an electric
shock to you or damage to the phone.
• Do not use or store the phone in dusty, dirty areas, as its moving parts
may be damaged.
• Do not store the phone in hot areas. High temperatures can shorten the
life of electronic devices, damage batteries, and warp or melt certain
plastics.
• Do not store the phone in cold areas. When the phone warms up to its
normal operating temperature, moisture can form inside the phone,
which may damage the phone's electronic circuit boards.
• Do not drop, knock or shake the phone. Rough handling can break
internal circuit boards.
• Do not use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents or strong detergents to
clean the phone. Wipe it with a soft cloth slightly dampened in a mild
soap-and-water solution.
• Do not paint the phone. Paint can clog the device's moving parts and
prevent proper operation.
• Do not put the phone in or on heating devices, such as a microwave
oven, a stove or a radiator. The phone may explode when overheated.
• If your phone is equipped with an external antenna, use only the
supplied or an approved replacement antenna. Unauthorized antennas
or modified accessories may damage the phone and violate
regulations governing radio devices.
• If the phone, battery, charger or any accessory is not working properly,
take it to your nearest qualified service facility. The personnel there
will assist you, and if necessary, arrange for service.
