• Some of the contents in this manual may differ from your
phon e depending on the software of the phone or your
service provider.
• Bluetooth QD ID : B015770
Ensure that any mobile phones or related equipment
installed in your vehicle are securely mounted. Avoid
placing your phone and accessories near or in an air bag
deployment area. Improperly installed wireless equipment
can cause serious injury when air bags inflate rapidly.
Comply with the following precautions to avoid dangerous or illegal situations and ensure peak performance of your mobile phone.
Handle and dispose of batteries and chargers
with care
• Use only Samsung-approved batteries and chargers
specifically designed for your phone.
Incompatible batteries and chargers can cause serious
injuries or damage to your phone.
• Never dispose of batteries or phones in a fire. Follow
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.
Avoid interference with pacemakers
Maintain a minimum of 15 cm (6 inches) 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.
Turn off the phone in potentially explosive
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. Your
phone could cause explosions or fire in and around fuel or
chemical storage and transfer areas or blasting areas. Do
not store or carry flammable liquids, gases, 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.
Do not use the phone if the screen is cracked or
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.

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.
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

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
• Do not paint your phone, as paint can clog moving
parts and prevent proper operation.
• If your phone has a camera flash or light, avoid using it
close to the eyes of children or animals.
• Your phone may be damaged by exposure to magnetic
fields. Do not use carrying cases or accessories with
magnetic closures or allow your phone to come in
contact with magnetic fields for extended periods of
Ensure maximum battery and charger life
• 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.

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 as the Specific
Absorption Rate, or SAR) of 2.0 watts per kilogram.
During testing, the maximum SAR recorded for this model
was 1.14 watts per kilogram. 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.
