health and safety
information
Comply with the following precautions to avoid dangerous or
illegal situations and to ensure peak performance of your
mobile phone.
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.
98
Maintaining Your Phone’s Peak Performance
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 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 hybrid standard consisting of the
existing ANSI/IEEE standard and the guidelines published
by the National Council of Radiation Protection and
Measurements (NCRP).
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.
For the best care of your phone, only authorized
personnel should service your phone and
accessories. Faulty service may void the warranty.

Phone
Failure to follow the instructions outlined may lead to serious
personal injury and possible property damage.
health and safety information
Excessive exposure to sound at high volumes can
cause hearing damage. Always turn the volume down
before plugging the headphones into an audio source
and use only the minimum volume setting necessary
to hear your conversation or music.
Using Your Phone While Driving
Talking on your phone while driving (or operating the phone
without a hands-free phone) is prohibited in some
jurisdictions. Laws vary as to specific restrictions.
Remember that safety always comes first.
When using your phone in the car:
100
• Get to know your phone and its features, such as speed
dial and re-dial.
• When available, use a hands-free phone.
• 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.
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.
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
Consult the manufacturer of any personal medical phones,
such as pacemakers and hearing aids, to determine if they
are adequately shielded from external RF signals.
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, the 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
health and safety information
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 phones to
set off explosives.
• Any other area where you would normally be advised to
turn off your vehicle’s engine.
Never transport or store flammable gas, liquid or
explosives in the compartment of your vehicle that
contains your phone or accessories.
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:

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.
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.

Information to User
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.
But when in operation, the SAR of a phone can be

health and safety information
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with
the limits of a Class B digital phone, 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 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.
health and safety information
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
