safety and
usage
information
Comply with the following precautions to avoid
dangerous or illegal situations and ensure peak
performance of your mobile phone.
2
Safety warnings
Keep your phone away from small
children and pets
Keep your phone and all accessories out of the
reach of small children or animals. Small parts may
cause choking or serious injury if swallowed.
Protect your hearing
Listening to a headset at high volumes
can damage your hearing. Use only the
minimum volume setting necessary to
hear your conversation or music.
Install mobile phones and equipment
with caution
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 in a fire. Follow all local
regulations when disposing used batteries.
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.
3
safety and usage information
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.
• 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.
Turn off the phone in potentially
explosive environments
safety and usage information
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.
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
Reduce the risk of repetitive motion
injuries
Comply with any regulations that restrict the use of a
mobile phone in a certain area.
When sending text messages or playing games on
your phone, hold the phone with a relaxed grip,
press the buttons lightly, use special features that
reduce the number of buttons you have to press
(such as templates and predictive text), and take
frequent breaks.
4
Use only Samsung-approved
accessories
Using incompatible accessories may damage your
phone or cause injury.
Protect batteries and chargers from
damage
Your phone can interfere with medical equipment in
hospitals or health care facilities. Follow all
regulations, posted warnings, and directions from
medical personnel.
• 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.
Turn off the phone or disable the
wireless 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.
Handle your phone carefully and
sensibly
• Do not allow your phone to get wet—liquids can
cause serious damage. Do not handle your
phone with wet hands. Water damage to your
phone can void your manufacturer’s warranty.
5
safety and usage information
Turn off the phone near medical
equipment
safety and usage information
• 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.
• Avoid using the phone’s camera flash or light
close to the eyes of children or animals.
• Your phone and memory cards 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 time.
6
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.
Important usage information
Use your phone in the normal position
Avoid contact with your phone’s internal antenna.
Allowing unqualified personnel to service your phone
may result in damage to your phone and will void
your warranty.
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.
Handle UIM cards and 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.
• Frequent writing and erasing will shorten the life
span of memory cards.
• Do not touch gold-coloured contacts or terminals
with your fingers or metal objects. If dirty, wipe the
card with a soft cloth.
7
safety and usage information
Allow only qualified personnel to service
your phone
• Disconnect chargers from power sources when
not in use.
• Use batteries only for their intended purpose.
Ensure access to emergency services
safety and usage information
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.
Specific Absorption Rate (SAR)
certification information
Your phone conforms to U.S. Federal
Communications Commission (FCC) 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 1.6 watts per kilogram of body tissue.
8
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.
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorisation
for this model phone based on the compliance of all
reported SAR levels with the FCC RF exposure
guidelines. The authorization can be found on the
FCC Office of Engineering and Technology website
at http://www.fcc.gov/oet/ea.
