Recommendations for safe use of
product (mobile phone, battery,
charger and other accessories)
• Always treat your product with care and keep it
in a clean and dust-free place.
• Warning! May explode if disposed of in fire.
• Do not expose your product to liquid or moisture
or humidity.
• Do not expose your product to
extreme high or low
temperatures. Do not expose
the battery to temperatures
above +60°C (+140°F).
• Do not expose your product to open flames or lit
tobacco products.
• Do not drop, throw or try to bend your product.
• Do not paint your product.
• Do not attempt to disassemble
or modify your product. Only
Sony Ericsson authorised
personnel should perform
service.
• Do not close your product with an object inserted
between keypad and display if you have a
clamshell phone; this may damage your product.
• Do not use your product near medical equipment
without requesting permission from your treating
physician or authorized medical staff.
• Do not use your product when in, or around
aircraft, or areas showing the sign "turn off twoway radio".
• Do not use your product in an
area where a potentially
explosive atmosphere exists.
• Do not place your product or
install wireless equipment in
the area above an air bag in your car.
• Caution: Cracked or broken displays may create
sharp edges or splinters that could be harmful
upon contact.
CHILDREN
KEEP OUT OF CHILDREN´S REACH.
DO NOT ALLOW CHILDREN TO
PLAY WITH YOUR MOBILE PHONE
OR ITS ACCESSORIES. THEY COULD HURT
THEMSELVES OR OTHERS, OR COULD
ACCIDENTALLY DAMAGE THE MOBILE PHONE
OR ACCESSORY. YOUR MOBILE PHONE OR ITS
ACCESSORY MAY CONTAIN SMALL PARTS THAT
COULD BECOME DETACHED AND CREATE A
CHOKING HAZARD.
Power supply (Charger)
Connect the AC power adapter only to designated
power sources as marked on the product. Make sure
the cord is positioned so that it will not be subjected
to damage or stress. To reduce risk of electric shock,
unplug the unit from any power source before
attempting to clean it. The AC power adapter must
not be used outdoors or in damp areas. Never alter
the cord or plug. If the plug does not fit into the
outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified
electrician.
Use only Sony Ericsson branded original chargers
intended for use with your mobile phone. Other
chargers may not be designed to the same safety
and performance standards.
Battery
We recommend that you fully charge the battery
before you use your mobile phone for the first time.
A new battery or one that has not been used for a
long time could have reduced capacity the first few
times it is used. The battery should only be charged
in temperatures between +5°C (+41°F) and +45°C
(+113°F).
Use only Sony Ericsson branded original batteries
intended for use with your mobile phone. Using
other batteries and chargers could be dangerous.
Important information
This is an Internet version of this publication. © Print only for private use.
69
Talk and standby times depend on several different
conditions such as signal strength, operating
temperature, application usage patterns, features
selected and voice or data transmissions when the
mobile phone is being used.
Turn off your mobile phone before removing the
battery. Do not put the battery into your mouth.
Battery electrolytes may be toxic if swallowed. Do
not let the metal contacts on the battery touch
another metal object. Doing this could short-circuit
and damage the battery. Use the battery for the
intended purpose only.
Personal medical devices
Mobile phones may affect the operation of
pacemakers and other implanted equipment. Please
avoid placing the mobile phone over the pacemaker,
e.g. in your breast pocket. When using the mobile
phone, use it at the ear on the opposite side of the
body to the pacemaker. If a minimum distance of 15
cm (6 inches) is kept between the mobile phone and
the pacemaker, the risk of interference is limited. If
you have any reason to suspect that interference is
taking place, immediately turn off your mobile
phone. Contact your cardiologist for more
information.
For other medical devices, please consult your
physician and the manufacturer of the device.
Driving
Please check if local laws and regulations restrict the
use of mobile phones while driving or require drivers
to use handsfree solutions. We recommend that you
use only Sony Ericsson handsfree solutions
intended for use with your product.
Please note that because of possible interference to
electronic equipment, some vehicle manufacturers
forbid the use of mobile phones in their vehicles
unless a handsfree kit with an external antenna has
been installed.
70
Always pay full attention to driving and pull off the
road and park before making or answering a call if
driving conditions so require.
GPS/Location based functions
Some products provide GPS/Location based
functions. Location determining functionality is
provided “AS IS” and “WITH ALL FAULTS”. Sony
Ericsson does not make any representation or
warranty as to the accuracy of such location
information.
Use of location-based information by the device
may not be uninterrupted or error free and may
additionally be dependent on network service
availability. Please note that functionality may be
reduced or prevented in certain environments such
as building interiors or areas adjacent to buildings.
Caution: Do not use GPS functionality in a manner
which causes distraction from driving.
Emergency calls
Mobile phones operate using radio signals, which
cannot guarantee connection in all conditions. You
should therefore never rely solely upon any mobile
phone for essential communications (e.g. medical
emergencies).
Emergency calls may not be possible in all areas, on
all cellular networks, or when certain network
services and/or mobile phone features are in use.
Check with your local service provider.
Antenna
This phone contains a built-in antenna. Use of
antenna devices not marketed by Sony Ericsson
specifically for this model could damage your mobile
phone, reduce performance, and produce SAR
levels above the established limits (see below).
Important information

Efficient use
Hold your mobile phone as you would any other
phone. Do not cover the top of the phone when it is
in use, as this affects call quality and may cause the
phone to operate at a higher power level than
needed, thus shortening talk and standby times.
Radio frequency (RF) exposure and
Specific Absorption Rate (SAR)
Your mobile phone is a low-power radio transmitter
and receiver. When it is turned on, it emits low levels
of radio frequency energy (also known as radio
waves or radio frequency fields).
Governments around the world have adopted
comprehensive international safety guidelines,
developed by scientific organizations, e.g. ICNIRP
(International Commission on Non-Ionizing
Radiation Protection) and IEEE (The Institute of
Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc.), through
periodic and thorough evaluation of scientific
studies. These guidelines establish permitted levels
of radio wave exposure for the general population.
The levels include a safety margin designed to
assure the safety of all persons, regardless of age
and health, and to account for any variations in
measurements.
Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) is the unit of
measurement for the amount of radio frequency
energy absorbed by the body when using a mobile
phone. The SAR value is determined at the highest
certified power level in laboratory conditions, but the
actual SAR level of the mobile phone while it is
operating can be well below this value. This is
because the mobile phone is designed to use the
minimum power required to reach the network.
Variations in SAR below the radio frequency
exposure guidelines do not mean that there are
variations in safety. While there may be differences
in SAR levels among mobile phones, all
Sony Ericsson mobile phone models are designed
to meet radio frequency exposure guidelines.
For phones sold in the US, before a phone model is
available for sale to the public, it must be tested and
certified by the Federal Communications
Commission (FCC) that it does not exceed the limit
established by the government-adopted
requirement for safe exposure. The tests are
performed in positions and locations (that is, at the
ear and worn on the body) as required by the FCC
for each model. For body-worn operation, this
phone has been tested and meets FCC RF exposure
guidelines when the handset is positioned a
minimum of 15 mm from the body without any metal
parts in the vicinity of the phone or when used with
the original Sony Ericsson accessory intended for
this phone and worn on the body. Use of other
accessories may not ensure compliance with FCC
RF exposure guidelines.
A separate leaflet with SAR information about this
mobile phone model is included with the material
accompanying this mobile phone. This information
can also be found, together with more information
on radio frequency exposure and SAR, on:
www.sonyericsson.com/health.
Accessible Solutions/Special Needs
For phones sold in the US, you can use your TTY
terminal with your Sony Ericsson mobile phone (with
the necessary accessory). For information on
Accessible Solutions for individuals with special
needs call the Sony Ericsson Special Needs Center
on 877 878 1996 (TTY) or 877 207 2056 (voice), or
visit the Sony Ericsson Special Needs Center at

Our warranty
Conditions
Subject to the conditions of this Limited Warranty,
Sony Ericsson warrants this Product to be free from
defects in design, material and workmanship at the
time of its original purchase by a consumer. This
Limited Warranty will last for a period of two (2) years
as from the original date of purchase of the Product
for your mobile phone, and for a period of one (1)
year following the original purchase date of the
Product for all original accessories (such as the
battery, charger or handsfree kit) which may be
delivered with your mobile phone.
What we will do
If, during the warranty period, this Product fails to
operate under normal use and service, due to
defects in design, materials or workmanship,
Sony Ericsson authorized distributors or service
partners, in the country* where you purchased the
Product, will, at their option, either repair or replace
the Product in accordance with the terms and
conditions stipulated herein.
Sony Ericsson and its service partners reserve the
right to charge a handling fee if a returned Product
is found not to be under warranty according to the
conditions below.
Please note that some of your personal settings,
downloads and other information may be lost when
your Sony Ericsson Product is repaired or replaced.
At present Sony Ericsson may be prevented by
applicable law, other regulation or technical
restrictions from making a backup copy of certain
downloads. Sony Ericsson does not take any
responsibility for any lost information of any kind and
will not reimburse you for any such loss. You should
always make backup copies of all the information
stored on your Sony Ericsson Product such as
downloads, calendar and contacts before handing
74
in your Sony Ericsson Product for repair or
replacement.
1 This Limited Warranty is valid only if the original
proof of purchase for this Product issued by a
Sony Ericsson authorized dealer specifying the date
of purchase and serial number**, is presented with
the Product to be repaired or replaced.
Sony Ericsson reserves the right to refuse warranty
service if this information has been removed or
changed after the original purchase of the Product
from the dealer.
2 If Sony Ericsson repairs or replaces the Product, the
repair for the defect concerned, or the replaced
Product shall be warranted for the remaining time of
the original warranty period or for ninety (90) days
from the date of repair, whichever is longer. Repair
or replacement may involve the use of functionally
equivalent reconditioned units. Replaced parts or
components will become the property of
Sony Ericsson.
3 This warranty does not cover any failure of the
Product due to normal tear and wear, or due to
misuse, including but not limited to use in other than
the normal and customary manner, in accordance
with the Sony Ericsson instructions for use and
maintenance of the Product. Nor does this warranty
cover any failure of the Product due to accident,
software or hardware modification or adjustment,
acts of God or damage resulting from liquid.
A rechargeable battery can be charged and
discharged more than a hundred times. However, it
will eventually wear out – this is not a defect and
corresponds to normal wear and tear. When the talktime or standby time is noticeably shorter, it is time
to replace your battery. Sony Ericsson recommends
that you use only batteries and chargers approved
by Sony Ericsson.
Minor variations in display brightness and colour
may occur between the phones. There may be tiny

bright or dark dots on the display. These are called
defective pixels and occur when individual dots have
malfunctioned and can not be adjusted. Two
defective pixels are deemed acceptable.
Minor variations in camera image appearance may
occur between phones. This is nothing uncommon
and is not regarded as a defective camera module.
Since the cellular system on which the Product is to
operate is provided by a carrier independent from
Sony Ericsson, Sony Ericsson will not be responsible
for the operation, availability, coverage, services or
range of that system.
This warranty does not cover Product failures
caused by installations, modifications, or repair or
opening of the Product performed by a nonSony Ericsson authorised person.
The warranty does not cover Product failures which
have been caused by use of accessories or other
peripheral devices which are not Sony Ericsson
branded original accessories intended for use with
the Product.
Sony Ericsson disclaims any and all warranties,
whether express or implied, for failures caused to
the Product or peripheral devices as a result of
viruses, trojan horses, spyware, or other malicious
software. Sony Ericsson strongly recommends that
you install appropriate virus protection software on
your Product and any peripheral devices connected
to it, as available, and update it regularly, to better
protect your device. It is understood, however, that
such software will never fully protect your Product
or its peripheral devices and Sony Ericsson
disclaims all warranties, whether express or implied,
in case of failure by such antivirus software to fulfill
its intended purpose.
Tampering with any of the seals on the Product will
void the warranty.
THERE ARE NO EXPRESS WARRANTIES,
WHETHER WRITTEN OR ORAL, OTHER THAN THIS
PRINTED LIMITED WARRANTY. ALL IMPLIED
WARRANTIES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION
THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A
PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ARE LIMITED TO THE
DURATION OF THIS LIMITED WARRANTY. IN NO
EVENT SHALL SONY ERICSSON OR ITS
LICENSORS BE LIABLE FOR INCIDENTAL OR
CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY NATURE
WHATSOEVER, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO
LOST PROFITS OR COMMERCIAL LOSS; TO THE
FULL EXTENT THOSE DAMAGES CAN BE
DISCLAIMED BY LAW.
Some countries/states do not allow the exclusion or
limitation of incidental or consequential damages, or
limitation of the duration of implied warranties, so
the preceding limitations or exclusions may not
apply to you.
The warranty provided does not affect the
consumer's statutory rights under applicable
legislation in force, nor the consumer’s rights against
the dealer arising from their sales / purchase
contract.
*Geographical scope of the warranty
If you have purchased your Product in a country
member of the European Economic Area (EEA) or in
Switzerland or the Republic of Turkey, and such
Product was intended for sale in the EEA or in
Switzerland or in Turkey, you can have your Product
serviced in any EEA country or in Switzerland or in
