all local regulations when disposing of used batteries
or phones.
• Never place batteries or phones on or in heating
devices, such as microwave ovens, stoves, or
radiators. Batteries may explode when overheated.
• Never crush or puncture the battery. Avoid exposing
the battery to high external pressure, which can lead to
an internal short circuit and overheating.
Do not use your phone at refuelling points (service
stations) or near fuels or chemicals. Turn off your phone
whenever directed by warning signs or instructions.

or explosive materials in the same compartment as the
phone, its parts, or accessories.
Reduce the risk of repetitive motion injuries
While using your phone, hold the phone with a relaxed
grip, press the keys lightly, use special features that
reduce the number of keys you have to press (such as
templates and predictive text), and take frequent breaks.
Avoid interference with pacemakers
Do not use the phone if the screen is cracked or
broken
Maintain a minimum of 15 cm between mobile phones
and pacemakers to avoid potential interference, as
recommended by manufacturers and the independent
research group, Wireless Technology Research. If you
have any reason to suspect that your phone is interfering
with a pacemaker or other medical device, turn off the
phone immediately and contact the manufacturer of the
pacemaker or medical device for guidance.
Safety precautions
Drive safely at all times
Avoid using your phone while driving and obey all
regulations that restrict the use of mobile phones while
driving. Use hands-free accessories to increase your
safety when possible.
Follow all safety warnings and regulations
Comply with any regulations that restrict the use of a
mobile phone in a certain area.
Use only Samsung-approved accessories
Using incompatible accessories may damage your
phone or cause injury. In case of headsets, mono
headsets are not available. Use stereo headsets only.
Broken glass or acrylic could cause injury to your hand
and face. Bring the phone to a Samsung service centre
to replace the screen. Damage caused by careless
handling will void your manufacturer's warranty.
Turn off the phone near medical equipment
Ensure maximum battery and charger life
Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) certification

hospitals or health care facilities. Follow all regulations,
posted warnings, and directions from medical

functions when in an aircraft
Your phone can cause interference with aircraft
equipment. Follow all airline regulations and turn off
your phone or switch to a mode that disables the
wireless functions when directed by airline personnel.
Protect batteries and chargers from damage
• Avoid exposing batteries to very cold or very hot
temperatures (below 0° C/32° F or above 45° C/
113° F). Extreme temperatures can reduce the
charging capacity and life of your batteries.
• Prevent batteries from contacting metal objects,
as this can create a connection between the + and
– terminals of your batteries and lead to temporary or
permanent battery damage.
• Never use a damaged charger or battery.
Handle your phone carefully and sensibly
• Do not disassemble your phone due to a risk of
electric shock.
• Do not allow your phone to get wet—liquids can
cause serious damage and will change the colour
of the label that indicates water damage inside
the phone. Do not handle your phone with wet
hands. Water damage to your phone can void your
manufacturer's warranty.
• Avoid using or storing your phone in dusty, dirty areas
to prevent damage to moving parts.
• Your phone is a complex electronic device—protect
it from impacts and rough handling to avoid serious
damage.
• Do not paint your phone, as paint can clog moving
parts and prevent proper operation.
• Ifyourphonehasacameraflashorlight,avoidusingit
close to the eyes of children or animals.
• Your phone may be damaged by exposure to magnetic
fields.Donotusecarryingcasesoraccessorieswith
magnetic closures or allow your phone to come in

Important usage information
• Avoid charging batteries for more than a week, as
overcharging may shorten battery life.
• Over time, unused batteries will discharge and must be
recharged before use.
• Disconnect chargers from power sources when not
in use.
• Use batteries only for their intended purpose.
Use your phone in the normal position
Avoid contact with your phone's internal antenna.

Handle SIM cards or memory cards with care
• Do not remove a card while the phone is transferring
or accessing information, as this could result in loss of
data and/or damage to the card or phone.
• Protect cards from strong shocks, static electricity, and
electrical noise from other devices.
• Do not touch gold-coloured contacts or terminals with
yourfingersormetalobjects.Ifdirty,wipethecardwith
a soft cloth.
Avoid interference with other electronic devices
Your phone emits radio frequency (RF) signals that
may interfere with unshielded or improperly shielded
electronic equipment, such as pacemakers, hearing
aids, medical devices, and other electronic devices in
homes or vehicles. Consult the manufacturers of your
electronic devices to solve any interference problems
you experience.

This marking on the product, accessories
or literature indicates that the product and
its electronic accessories (e.g. charger, headset, USB
cable) should not be disposed of with other household
waste at the end of their working life.
To prevent possible harm to the environment or human
health from uncontrolled waste disposal, please
separate these items from other types of waste and
recycle them responsibly to promote the sustainable
reuse of material resources.

(Applicable in the European Union and other
European countries with separate battery
return systems)
This marking on the battery, manual or
packaging indicates that the batteries in this product
should not be disposed of with other household waste at
the end of their working life. Where marked, the chemical
symbols Hg, Cd or Pb indicate that the battery contains
mercury, cadmium or lead above the reference levels
in EC Directive 2006/66. If batteries are not properly
disposed of, these substances can cause harm to
human health or the environment.
To protect natural resources and to promote material
reuse, please separate batteries from other types of

may result in damage to your phone and will void your

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.
