Switching off near all medical equipment
Hospitals and health care facilities may be using equipment that could be
sensitive to external RF energy. Follow any regulations or rules in force.
Interference
All wireless phones may be subject to interference, which could affect their
performance.
Special regulations
Follow any special regulations in force in any area and always switch off your
phone whenever it is forbidden to use it.
Water resistance
Your phone is not water-resistant. Keep it dry.
Emergency calls
Key in the emergency number for your present location, then press
not end the call until given permission to do so.
Small children and your phone
Keep the phone and all its parts including accessories out of reach of small
children.
Accessories and batteries
Use only Samsung-approved batteries and accessories, such as headsets and
PC data cables. Use of any unauthorised accessories could damage you or
your phone and may be dangerous.
CAUTION
Your wireless phone 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. These limits are part of comprehensive guidelines
and establish permitted levels of RF energy for the general population. The
guidelines are based on the safety standards that were developed by
independent scientific organizations through periodic and through evaluation
of scientific studies.
The standards include a substantial safety margin designed to assure the
safety of all persons, regardless of age and health.
The exposure standard for wireless phones employs a unit of measurement
known as Specific Absorption Rate (SAR). The SAR limit set by the FCC is 1.6
W/kg*. The highest SAR value for this model phone was Head: 1.26 W/kg,
Body-worn: 0.567 W/kg.
The phone could explode if the battery is replaced with an
incorrect type.
Dispose of used batteries according to the manufacturer's
instructions.
At very high volumes, prolonged listening to a headset can damage
your hearing.
Qualified service
Only qualified service personnel may repair your phone.
* In the U.S. and Canada, the SAR limit for mobile phones used by the public is 1.6 watts/
kg (W/kg) averaged over one gram of tissue. The standard incorporates a substantial
margin of safety to give additional protection for the public and to account for any
variations in measurements.
