Recommendation of 12 July 1999 on the limitation of exposure of
the general public to electromagnetic fields (0 Hz to 300 GHz)
MIC, 2001, Article 14-2 of the Ordinance for Regulating Radio
Equipment
To maintain compliance with FCC, IC, MIC, and EU RF exposure guidelines
when you carry the BlackBerry device on your body, use only accessories
equipped with an integrated belt clip that are supplied or approved by
Research In Motion (RIM). Use of accessories that are not expressly approved
by RIM might violate FCC, IC, and EU RF exposure guidelines and might void
any warranty applicable to the BlackBerry device. If you do not use a bodyworn accessory equipped with an integrated belt clip supplied or approved
by RIM when you carry the BlackBerry device, keep the BlackBerry device at
least 0.98 in. (25 mm) from your body when the BlackBerry device is
transmitting. When using any data feature of the BlackBerry device, with or
without a USB cable, hold the BlackBerry device at least 0.98 in. (25 mm) from
your body. If you use a body-worn accessory not supplied by RIM when you
carry the BlackBerry device, verify that the accessory does not contain metal
and keep the BlackBerry device at least 0.98 in. (25 mm) from your body when
the BlackBerry device is transmitting.
To reduce radio frequency (RF) exposure consider these safety guidelines:
22
•
Use the BlackBerry device in areas where there is a strong wireless
signal. The indicator that provides information about the strength
of the wireless signal is located in the upper-right corner of the
Home screen and displays five ascending bars. Three or more bars
indicate a strong signal. A reduced signal display, which might occur
in areas such as an underground parking structure or if you are
traveling by train or car, might indicate increased power output
from your BlackBerry device as it attempts to connect to a weak
signal.
• Use hands-free operation if it is available and keep the BlackBerry
device at least 0.98 in. (25 mm) from your body (including the
abdomen of pregnant women and the lower abdomen of
teenagers) when the BlackBerry device is turned on and connected
to the wireless network. For more information about carrying your
BlackBerry device, see the holster information in the "Additional
safety guidelines" section of this document.
• Reduce the amount of time spent on calls.
Specific absorption rate data
THIS WIRELESS DEVICE MODEL MEETS GOVERNMENT REQUIREMENTS FOR
EXPOSURE TO RADIO WAVES WHEN USED AS DIRECTED IN THIS SECTION.
The BlackBerry® device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed and
manufactured not to exceed the emission limits for exposure to radio
frequency (RF) energy set by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)
of the U.S. Government, Industry Canada of the Canadian Government (IC),
and recommended by The Council of the European Union when used as
23
directed in the previous section. These limits are part of comprehensive
guidelines and establish permitted levels of RF energy for the general
population. The guidelines are based on standards that were developed by
independent scientific organizations through periodic and thorough
evaluation of scientific studies.
The exposure standard for wireless devices employs a unit of measurement
known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit set by the FCC/
IC is 1.6W/kg*. The SAR limit recommended by The Council of the European
Union is 2.0W/kg**. Tests for SAR are conducted using standard operating
positions specified by the FCC/IC with the device 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
device while operating can be well below the maximum value. This is because
the device 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 wireless device model is available for sale to the public, it must be
tested and certified to the FCC, IC, and The Council of the European Union
that it does not exceed the limit established by the government-adopted
requirement for safe exposure under the recommendations of the
International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP). The
tests are performed in positions and locations (for example, at the ear and
worn on the body) as required by the FCC, IC, and The Council of the European
Union for each model.
The highest SAR value for your BlackBerry device model when tested for use
at the ear is outlined as follows:
24
Device

The highest reported SAR value for this BlackBerry device when clipped on a
belt, in a Research In Motion approved holster equipped with an integrated
belt clip, is outlined below. Carrying solutions, including RIM approved
carrying solutions and carrying solutions not approved by RIM, that do not
come equipped with an integrated belt clip SHOULD NOT be worn or carried
on the body. For more information regarding the wearing or carrying of this
BlackBerry device without using a RIM approved carrying solution equipped
with an integrated belt clip, see the holster information in the "Additional
safety guidelines" section of this document.

European Union requirements.
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this wireless device
model with all reported SAR levels evaluated as in compliance with the FCC
RF emission guidelines when the BlackBerry device is used as directed in this
section. SAR information on this wireless device model is on file with the FCC
and can be found under the Display Grant section of www.fcc.gov/oet/ea

* In the United States and Canada, the SAR limit for mobile devices used by
the public is 1.6 watts/kg (W/kg) averaged over 1 gram of tissue for the body
or head (4.0 W/kg averaged over 10 grams of tissue for the extremities - hands,
wrists, ankles and feet).
** In Europe, the SAR limit for mobile devices used by the public is 2.0 watts/
kg (W/kg) averaged over 10 grams of tissue for the body or head (4.0 W/kg
averaged over 10 grams of tissue for the extremities - hands, wrists, ankles
and feet). Studies suggest that the standard incorporates a substantial margin
of safety to give additional protection for the public and to account for any
variations in measurements.

frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the
manufacturer’s instructions, may cause interference harmful to radio
communications.
There is no guarantee, however, 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 or relocate the receiving antenna.
Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.

•
•
Connect the equipment to an outlet on a circuit different from that
to which the receiver is connected.
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio or TV technician for help.
US Information Concerning the Federal Communications
Commission ("FCC") Requirements for Hearing Aid
Compatibility with Wireless Devices
When wireless devices are used near hearing devices (such as 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, and wireless devices also vary in the amount of interference that
they generate.
The wireless telephone industry has developed ratings to assist hearing device
users in finding wireless devices that may be compatible with their hearing
devices. Not all wireless devices have been rated. Wireless devices that are
rated will have the rating displayed on the box together with other relevant
approval markings.
The ratings are not guarantees. Results will vary depending on the user's
hearing device and hearing loss. If your hearing device is vulnerable to
interference, you may not be able to use a rated wireless device successfully.
Consulting with your hearing health professional and testing the wireless
device with your hearing device is the best way to evaluate it for your personal
needs.
28
This BlackBerry® device has been tested and rated for use with hearing aids
for some of the wireless technologies that the BlackBerry device uses.
However, other wireless technologies may be used in this BlackBerry device
that have not been tested for use with hearing aids. It is important to try the
different features of your BlackBerry device thoroughly and in different
locations to determine if you hear any interfering noise when using this
BlackBerry device with your hearing aid or cochlear implant. Consult your
wireless service provider about its return and exchange policies and for
information about hearing aid compatibility.
How the ratings work
M-Ratings: Wireless devices rated M3 or M4 meet FCC requirements and are
likely to generate less interference to hearing devices than wireless devices
that are not labeled. M4 is the better or higher of the two ratings.
T-Ratings: Wireless devices rated T3 or T4 meet FCC requirements and are
likely to be more usable with a hearing device's telecoil ("T Switch" or
"Telephone Switch") than unrated wireless devices. T4 is the better or higher
of the two ratings. (Note that not all hearing devices have telecoils in them.)
Hearing devices may also be measured for immunity to this type of
interference. Your hearing device manufacturer or hearing health
professional may help you find results for your hearing device. The more
immune your hearing aid is, the less likely you are to experience interference
noise from wireless devices.
For more information about the actions that the FCC has taken with regard
to hearing aid compatibility with wireless devices and other steps that the
FCC has taken to ensure that individuals with disabilities have access to
telecommunications services, visit www.fcc.gov/cgb/dro.
