FCC/IC Notice
This device complies with part 15 of the FCC rules.
Operation is subject to the following two conditions:
(1) This device may not cause harmful
interference, and (2) this device must accept any
interference received, including interference that
may cause undesired operation.
To maintain compliance with FCC RF exposure
guidelines, if you wear a handset on your body, use
the Kyocera Wireless Corp (KWC) approved case
CA90-B1860 or holster 55-B1795-02.
Other accessories used with this device for bodyworn operations must not contain any metallic
components and must provide at least 25 mm
separation distance, including the antenna, and the
user’s body.
THIS MODEL PHONE MEETS THE GOVERNMENT’S
REQUIREMENTS FOR EXPOSURE TO RADIO WAVES.
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 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 standards that were
developed by independent scientific organizations
through periodic and thorough 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 mobile phones
employs a unit of measurement known as the
Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit
set by the FCC is 1.6 W/kg.* Tests for SAR are
conducted using standard operating positions
specified by the FCC with the phone transmitting at
its highest certified power level in all tested
frequency bands.
User Guide for Kyocera KX440 Series Phones
Although the SAR is determined at the highest
certified power level, the actual SAR level of the
phone while operating can be well below the
maximum value. This is because the phone is
designed to operate at multiple power levels so as
to use only the power required to reach the
network. In general, the closer you are to a wireless
base station antenna, the lower the power output.
Before a phone model is available for sale to the
public, it must be tested and certified to the FCC
that it does not exceed the limit established by the
government-adopted requirement for safe
exposure. The tests are performed in positions and
locations (e.g., at the ear and worn on the body) as
required by the FCC for each model. The highest
SAR values for this model phone are:
Cellular Band (Part 22)—Head:1.36 mW/g;
Body-worn: 0.584 mW/g with KWC universal belt
clip 55-B1795-02;
Face: 0.397 mW/g with at least one inch
(2.5 cm) separation.
PCS Band (Part 24)—Head:1.46 mW/g;
Body-worn: 0.311 mW/g with KWC universal belt
clip 55-B1795-02;
Face: 0.22 mW/g with at least one inch
(2.5 cm) separation.
Recommended body worn accessories are only
intended for use with the standard or thin battery
door, not the sport clip.
(Body-worn measurements differ among phone
models, depending upon availability of accessories
and FCC requirements. The body-worn SAR
values provided above were obtained by using
Kyocera Wireless Corp. (KWC) approved case
CA90-B1860 or holster 55-B1795-02. The sport
clip is not designed to be a body-worn accessory).
While there may be differences between the
SAR levels of various phones and at various
positions, they all meet the government
requirement for safe exposure.
iii
82-K5873-1EN.book Page iv Monday, May 24, 2004 9:38 AM
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization
for this model phone with all reported SAR levels
evaluated as in compliance with the FCC RF
emission guidelines. SAR information on this
model phone is on file with the FCC and can be
found under the Display Grant section
http://www.fcc.gov/oet/fccid after searching on FCC
ID OVFKWC-KX444. Additional information on
SAR can be found on the Cellular
Telecommunications and Internet Association
(CTIA) web-site at http://www.wow-com.com.
* In the United States 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.
Caution
The user is cautioned that changes or
modifications not expressly approved by the party
responsible for compliance could void the warranty
and user’s authority to operate the equipment.
Warning
Use only Kyocera approved accessories with
Kyocera phones. Use of any unauthorized
accessories (includes faceplates/front housings)
may be dangerous and will invalidate the phone
warranty if said accessories cause damage or a
defect to the phone.
Walkie-talkie radio feature
When using your phone as a walkie-talkie radio,
hold the phone a minimum separation distance of
one inch (2.5 cm) between your face and the
device, including the antenna, to comply with FCC
exposure limits.
Optimize your phone’s performance
Use the guidelines on page 1 to learn how to
optimize the performance and life of your phone,
antenna, and battery.
iv
Air bags
If your vehicle has an air bag, DO NOT place
installed or portable phone equipment or other
objects over the air bag or in the air bag deployment
area. If equipment is not properly installed, you and
your passengers risk serious injury.
Medical devices
Pacemakers—Warning to pacemaker wearers:
wireless phones, when in the ‘on’ position, have
been shown to interfere with pacemakers. The
phone should be kept at least six (6) inches away
from the pacemaker to reduce risk. The Health
Industry Manufacturers Association and the
wireless technology research community
recommend that you follow these guidelines to
minimize the potential for interference.
• Always keep the phone at least six inches
(15 centimeters) away from your pacemaker
when the phone is turned on.
• Do not carry your phone near your heart.
• Use the ear opposite the pacemaker.
• If you have any reason to suspect that
interference is taking place, turn off your
phone immediately.
Hearing aids—Some digital wireless phones may
interfere with hearing aids. In the event of such
interference, you may want to consult your service
provider or call the customer service line to
discuss alternatives.
Other medical devices—If you use any other personal
medical device, consult the manufacturer of the
device to determine if it is adequately shielded
from external RF energy. Your physician may be
able to help you obtain this information.
In health care facilities—Turn your phone off in health
care facilities when instructed. Hospitals and
health care facilities may be using equipment that
is sensitive to external RF energy.
82-K5873-1EN.book Page v Monday, May 24, 2004 9:38 AM
Potentially unsafe areas
Resetting the phone
Posted facilities—Turn your phone off in any facility

7. To open the application now, select Yes. If you
choose No, you return to the BREW menu,
where you see a link to your new application.
Note: Your connection to the application server
automatically ends after 30 seconds, unless you
connect again to download more apps. If you
want to end the connection manually, press the
End/Power key on your phone.
Removing an application
Important: If you remove an application, it is
removed completely from your phone. If you want
to use it again, you must pay for it again. If you want
to free up space on your phone, we recommend
you disable the application (see next section).
1. Select Menu → BREW→ Settings→
Manage Apps.

top of this menu. Downloaded applications
are listed after.

Disabling an application
If you are running out of memory and would like
to download more applications, but do not want
to completely remove those you have paid for, you
can simply disable them. This means you have to
re-download an application in order to use it
again, but don’t have to pay for it again.
1. Select Menu → BREW→ Settings→
Manage Apps.
2. Select the application and then select
Lock App.
3. Select Yes to confirm your choice.
Note: The app is still listed in the BREW
menu. The icon looks like an empty box.
