Section 14: 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
Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) Certification Information
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 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
76
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.
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: 0.74 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.

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:
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
Health and Safety Information
79
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 radiation-emitting 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
80
• 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.
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 pre-disposed 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 people use wireless
phones, so we don't know with certainty what the results of such studies mean for
human health.
Health and Safety Information
81
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 long-term 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' follow-up
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.
82
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.
Health and Safety Information
83
• 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.
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.
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 hands-free 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
84
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.

Road Safety
Your wireless phone gives you the powerful ability to communicate by voice, almost
anywhere, anytime. But an important responsibility accompanies the benefits of
wireless phones, one that every user must uphold. Always comply with road safety
regulations on using a mobile phone while driving. Using a mobile phone while
driving can be dangerous.
When driving a car, driving is your first responsibility. When using your wireless
phone behind the wheel of a car, practice good common sense and remember the
following tips:
1.
Get to know your wireless phone and its features, such as speed dial and
redial. If available, these features help you to place your call without taking
your attention off the road.
2.
When available, use a hands-free device. If possible, add an additional layer
of convenience and safety to your wireless phone with one of the many hands
free accessories available today.
3.
Position your wireless phone within easy reach. Be able to access your
wireless phone without removing your eyes from the road. If you get an
incoming call at an inconvenient time, let your voice mail answer it for you.
4.
Let the person you are speaking with know you are driving. Suspend the call
in heavy traffic or hazardous weather conditions. Rain, sleet, snow, ice and
even heavy traffic can be hazardous.
5.
Do not take notes or look up phone numbers while driving. Jotting down a "to
do" list or flipping through your address book takes attention away from your
primary responsibility, driving safely.
Health and Safety Information
87
6.
Dial sensibly and assess the traffic; if possible, place calls when you are not
moving or before pulling into traffic. Try to plan calls when your car will be
stationary. If you need to make a call, dial only a few numbers, check the
road and your mirrors, then continue.
7.
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 have the potential to divert your attention from
the road.
8.
Use your wireless phone to call for help. Dial 9-1-1 or other local emergency
number in the case of fire, traffic accident or medical emergencies.
9.
Use your wireless phone to help others in emergencies. If you see an auto
accident, crime in progress or other serious emergency where lives are in
danger, call 9-1-1 or other local emergency number, as you would want
others to do for you.
10. 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 number.

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.
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.
You should follow some commonsense recommendations when using any portable
audio device:
• Always turn the volume down before plugging the earphones into an audio source.
• 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.
Health and Safety Information
89
• 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.
• Avoid using headphones after exposure to extremely loud noises, such 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.

Operating Environment
Remember to follow any special regulations in force in any area and always switch
your phone off whenever it is forbidden to use it, or when it may cause interference
or danger.
When connecting the phone or any accessory to another device, read its user's
guide for detailed safety instructions. Do not connect incompatible products.
Health and Safety Information
91
As with other mobile radio transmitting equipment, users are advised that for the
satisfactory operation of the equipment and for the safety of personnel, it is
recommended that the equipment should only be used in the normal operating
position (held to your ear with the antenna pointing over your shoulder if you are
using an external antenna).
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.
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.
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.
Health and Safety Information
93
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
+
M2
=
5
T3
+
T2
=
5
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 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.
94
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.
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.
Health and Safety Information
95
Emergency Calls
This phone, like any wireless phone, operates using radio signals, wireless and
landline networks as well as user-programmed functions, which cannot guarantee
connection in all conditions areas or circumstances. Therefore, you should never
rely solely on any wireless phone for essential communications (medical
emergencies, for example). Before traveling in remote or underdeveloped areas,
plan an alternate method of contacting emergency services personnel.
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.
To make an emergency call:
1.
If the phone is not on, switch it on.
2.
Key in the emergency number for your present location (for example, 911 or
other official emergency number). Emergency numbers vary by location.
3.
Press the
key.
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. Do not allow children to play with it because they could hurt
themselves and others, damage the phone or make calls that increase your phone
bill.
96
FCC Notice and Cautions

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.
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.
98
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. Allowing unqualified personnel to service your phone may
result in damage to your phone and 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.
• 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.
• If your phone has a SIM or memory card: (i) handle the SIM or memory card with care, (ii) do
not remove a card while the phone is transferring or accessing information, as this could
Health and Safety Information
99
result in loss of data and/or damage to the card of phone, (iii) protect cards from strong
shocks, static electricity, and electrical noise from other devices, and (iv) do not touch goldcolored contacts or terminals with your fingers or metal objects (if dirty, wipe the card with
a soft cloth).
• 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.
Use batteries only for their intended use.
• 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.
100
• Battery charging time depends on the remaining battery charge and 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 and must be recharged
before use.
• Use only Samsung-approved batteries and recharge your battery only with Samsungapproved chargers which are specifically designed for your phone. 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 secondhand 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 serious injuries,
damage to your phone, or other serious hazard.
• Extreme temperatures will affect the charging capacity of your battery: it may require
cooling or warming first.
• Do not leave the battery in hot or cold places, (below 0 °C (32 °F) or over 45 °C (113 °F)
such as in a car in summer or winter conditions, as you will reduce the charging 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 battery in, on or near areas that may get very hot, such as on or near a
microwave oven, cooking surface, cooking appliance, iron, or radiator. Batteries may
explode when overheated.
Health and Safety Information
101
• 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.
• Dispose of used batteries in accordance with local regulations. In some areas, the disposal
of batteries in household or business trash may be prohibited. Do not handle a damaged or
leaking Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) battery. 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 (over 45 °C (113 °F)). High temperatures can shorten
the life of electronic devices, damage batteries, and warp or melt certain plastics.
102
• Do not store the phone in cold areas (below 0 °C (32 °F)). 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, on or near areas that may get very hot, such as a microwave oven,
cooking surface, cooking appliance, iron or a radiator. Do not dispose of the phone in a fire.
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.
• Dispose of phones in accordance with local regulations. In some areas, the disposal of
phones in household or business trash may be prohibited. For safe disposal options for
phones, contact your nearest Samsung authorized service center.
