FCC 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) supplied and
approved accessory designed for this product. Using
accessories that are not supplied or approved by KWC may
violate FCC RF exposure guidelines.
Other accessories used with this device for body-worn
operations must not contain any metallic components and
must provide at least 15 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 to not 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.
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 by 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.
Body-worn measurements differ among phone models,
depending upon availability of accessories and FCC
requirements. 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.
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
www.fcc.gov/oet/ea after searching on the
FCC ID: OVF-K33BIC03.
Additional information on SAR can be found on the Cellular
Telecommunications and Internet Association (CTIA) web-site
at www.ctia.org.
* 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.
Optimize your phone’s performance
Use the guidelines in this guide to learn how to optimize the
performance and life of your phone and battery.
Air Bags
If you have 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.
Potentially unsafe areas
Posted facilities—Turn your phone off in any facility when
posted notices require you to do so.
3
Aircraft—FCC regulations prohibit using your phone on a
plane that is in the air. Turn your phone off or switch it to
Airplane Mode before boarding aircraft.
Vehicles—RF signals may affect improperly installed or
inadequately shielded electronic systems in motor vehicles.
Check with the manufacturer of the device to determine if it is
adequately shielded from external RF energy.
Blasting areas—Turn off your phone where blasting is
in progress. Observe restrictions, and follow any
regulations or rules.
Potentially explosive atmospheres—Turn off your phone
when you are in any area with a potentially explosive
atmosphere. Obey all signs and instructions. Sparks in such
areas could cause an explosion or fire, resulting in bodily
injury or death. Areas with a potentially explosive atmosphere
are often, but not always, clearly marked.
They include:
• fueling areas such as gas stations
• below deck on boats
• transfer or storage facilities for fuel or chemicals
• vehicles using liquefied petroleum gas, such as
propane or butane
• areas where the air contains chemicals or particles
such as grain, dust, or metal powders
• any other area where you would normally be advised
to turn off your vehicle engine
Use with care
Use only in normal position (to ear). Avoid dropping, hitting,
bending, or sitting on the phone.
Avoid magnetic environments
Keep the phone away from magnets which can cause
improper functioning of the phone.
Keep your phone dry
Keep the phone dry. Damage can result if the phone gets wet.
Water damage is not covered under warranty.
4
Resetting the phone
If the screen seems frozen and the keypad does not
respond to keypresses, reset the phone by completing
the following steps:
1. Remove the battery door.
2. Remove and replace the battery.
If the problem persists, return the phone to the dealer
for service.
Accessories
Use only Kyocera-approved accessories with Kyocera
phones. Use of any unauthorized accessories may be
dangerous and will invalidate the phone warranty if said
accessories cause damage or a defect to the phone.
Radio Frequency (RF) energy
Your telephone is a radio transmitter and receiver. When it is
on, it receives and sends out RF energy. Your service
provider’s network controls the power of the RF signal. This
power level can range from 0.006 to 0.6 watts.
In August 1996, the U.S. Federal Communications
Commission (FCC) adopted RF exposure guidelines with
safety levels for hand-held wireless phones. These
guidelines are consistent with the safety standards previously
set by both U.S. and international standards bodies in the
following reports:
• ANSI C95.1 (American National Standards
Institute, 1992)
• NCRP Report 86 (National Council on Radiation
Protection and Measurements, 1986)
• ICNIRP (International Commission on Non-Ionizing
Radiation Protection, 1996)
Your phone complies with the standards set by these reports
and the FCC guidelines.
E911 mandates
Where service is available, this handset complies with the
Phase I and Phase II E911 Mandates issued by the FCC.
Hearing Aid Compatibility (HAC) with
Mobile Phones
Some mobile phones and hearing devices (hearing aids and
cochlear implants), when used together, result in buzzing,
humming, or whining noises detected by the user.
Some hearing devices are more immune than others to this
interference noise, and phones also vary in the amount of
interference they generate.
The wireless telephone industry has developed ratings for
some of their mobile phones, to assist hearing device users in
finding phones that may be compatible with their hearing
devices. Not all phones have been rated.
Phones that are rated have the rating on their box or a label
on the box. The ratings are not guarantees and results will
vary depending on the user’s hearing device and hearing loss.
If your hearing device happens to be vulnerable to
interference, you may not be able to use a rated phone
successfully. Trying out the phone with your hearing device is
the best way to evaluate it for your personal needs.
M-Ratings—Phones rated M3 or M4 meet FCC requirements
and are likely to generate less interference to hearing devices
than phones that are not labeled. M4 is the better/higher of the
two ratings.
T-Ratings—Phones rated T3 or T4 meet FCC requirements
and are likely to be more usable with a hearing device’s
telecoil (“T Switch” or “Telephone Switch”) than unrated
phones. T4 is the better/higher of the two ratings. (Note that
not all hearing devices have telecoils in them.)
Hearing devices may also be measured for immunity to this
type of interference. Your hearing device manufacturer or
hearing health professional may help you choose the proper
rating for your mobile phone. The more immune your hearing
aid is, the less likely you are to experience interference noise
from mobile phones.

Games & Apps
How does BREW Work?
Download an Application
Your Kyocera phone has the added ability
to download and manage applications
through BREW.
BREW brings you the full range of applications
and services you have come to expect from the
Internet: Email and instant messaging, real-time
navigation services, group chat, games, relevant
news, and much more.
You connect to the server, download applications,
and then manage them as you like. When you
choose an application, you have the option of
choosing a demo, various limited use options, or
the full version—all varying in price. If you
choose a demo, BREW lets you know when it has
expired. If you choose a priced version, the
amount is added to your phone bill. BREW also
lets you know if you’re running out of memory. At
that point, you can either disable an application
or remove it completely.
Once applications are loaded, you can update
to newer versions as they become available.
For more information about BREW
capabilities and application pricing, contact
your service provider.
