Allow only qualified personnel to service your phone Allowingunqualifiedpersonneltoserviceyourphone may result in damage to your phone and will void your warranty. Your phone conforms to European Union (EU) standards that limit human exposure to radio frequency (RF) energy emitted by radio and telecommunications equipment. These standards prevent the sale of mobile phones that exceed a maximum exposure level (known astheSpecificAbsorptionRate,orSAR)of2.0W/kg. During testing, the maximum SAR recorded for this model was 0.719 W/kg. In normal use, the actual SAR is likely to be much lower, as the phone has been designed to emit only the RF energy necessary to transmit a signal to the nearest base station. By automatically emitting lower levels when possible, your phone reduces your overall exposure to RF energy. For more information about the SAR and related EU standards, visit the Samsung mobile phone website. Ensure access to emergency services Emergency calls from your phone may not be possible in some areas or circumstances. Before travelling in remote or undeveloped areas, plan an alternate method of contacting emergency services personnel.
