Anti-Theft Guide
You can set up your device to prevent other people from using it if it’s been
reset to factory settings without your permission. For example, if your device
is lost, stolen, or wiped, only someone with your Google Account or screen
lock information can use the device.
All you need to make sure your device is protected is:
Set a screen lock: If your device is lost or stolen but you have a screen
lock set, the device can’t be erased using the Settings menu unless your
screen is unlocked.
Enable the Secure start-up lock: If your device is lost or stolen, but
you've locked your start-up, it can't be powered on unless your unlock
requirement is entered.
Add your Google account on your device: If your device is wiped but
you have your Google account on it, the device can’t finish the setup
process until your Google account information is entered again.
After your device is protected, you’ll need to either unlock your screen or
enter your Google account password if you need to do a factory reset. This
ensures that you or someone you trust is doing the reset.
NOTE
Do not forget your Google account and password you had added to your device prior to
performing a factory reset. If you can't provide the account information during the setup
process, you won't be able to use the device at all after performing the factory reset.
Touch Screen
Your touch screen provides an excellent way to interact with and use your
Android™ phone. With the touch of your finger, you can download and use
available apps, make menu selections, and access data saved to your
phone.
Touch or tap A single finger touch selects items. For example, tap an
icon (e.g., an app, widget, or folder), tap words (e.g., menu selection or to
answer an on-screen question), or touch letters and numbers to type.
NOTE Don't press too hard on the screen. It's sensitive enough to detect a light, firm tap.
23
24
The Basics
Touch and hold Touch an item on the screen and don't lift your finger
until an action occurs. For example, to open a context menu for a contact,
touch and hold the contact entry until the menu pops up.
Drag Touch and hold an item for a moment and then, without lifting your
finger, move your finger on the screen until you reach the target position.
For example, you can drag items on the Home screen to reposition them.
Swipe, slide, or flick Move your finger quickly across the surface of the
screen, without pausing when you first touch it (so you don’t drag an item
instead). For example, you can browse through the Home screens by
swiping left and right, slide the screen up or down to scroll through a list,
or remove an app from the Recent apps screen by flicking its graphic off
the screen.
Double-tap Tap the screen twice quickly to zoom, highlight text, or turn
the screen on/off. For example, quickly double-tap a section of a web
page to zoom that section to fit the width of the screen and control the
zoom in Maps and in other apps. Double-tap a word to highlight it.
Double-tap can also activate the KnockON feature to turn the screen on or
off.
NOTE
Certain Accessibility features (such as Touch zoom) use a triple-tap gesture to zoom or
activate functions.
Multi-touch Use your index finger and thumb in a pinch motion (to zoom
out) or spread motion (to zoom in) when using Chrome, a map, photos,
the rear camera lens, and in lists (e.g., Contacts, Groups, the Messaging
list, and a music list). Spread apart to make screen information larger
(easier to see and read), or pinch together to view more area and
information. The pinch gesture also affects the Home screen. Spread
apart on the Home screen to hide all of your Home screen items, then
pinch in to redisplay them.
Rotate the screen From many apps and menus, the orientation of the
screen adjusts to the phone’s physical orientation by rotating the screen.
You can deactivate this function in the Display settings menu.

Consumer Information About Radio Frequency
Emissions
Your wireless phone, which contains a radio transmitter and receiver,
emits radio frequency energy during use. The following consumer
information addresses commonly asked questions about the health
effects of wireless phones.
Safety
Are wireless phones safe?
Scientific research on the subject of wireless phones and radio frequency
(“RF”) energy has been conducted worldwide for many years, and
continues. In the United States, the Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”)
and the Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”) set policies and
procedures for wireless phones. The FDA issued a website publication on
health issues related to cell phone usage where it states, “The scientific
community at large … believes that the weight of scientific evidence does
not show an association between exposure to radiofrequency (RF) from cell
phones and adverse health outcomes. Still the scientific community does
recommend conducting additional research to address gaps in knowledge.
That research is being conducted around the world and the FDA continues
to monitor developments in this field. You can access the joint FDA/FCC
website at http://www.fda.gov (under “c” in the subject index, select Cell
Phones > Research). You can also contact the FDA toll-free at (888)
463-6332 or (888) INFO-FDA. In June 2000, the FDA entered into a
cooperative research and development agreement through which additional
scientific research is being conducted. The FCC issued its own website
publication stating that “there is no scientific evidence that proves that
wireless phone usage can lead to cancer or a variety of other problems,
including headaches, dizziness or memory loss.” This publication is
available at http://www.fcc.gov/cgb/ cellular.html or through the FCC at
(888) 225-5322 or (888) CALL-FCC.
What does “SAR” mean?
In 1996, the FCC, working with the FDA, the U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency, and other agencies, established RF exposure safety guidelines for
wireless phones in the United States. Before a wireless phone model is
available for sale to the public, it must be tested by the manufacturer and
certified to the FCC that it does not exceed limits established by the FCC.
One of these limits is expressed as a Specific Absorption Rate, or “SAR.”
SAR is a measure of the rate of absorption of RF energy in the body. Tests
for SAR are conducted with the phone transmitting at its highest power
level in all tested frequency bands. Since 1996, the FCC has required that
143
144
Safety
the SAR of handheld wireless phones not exceed 1.6 watts per kilogram,
averaged over one gram of tissue.
Although the SAR is determined at the highest power level, the actual SAR
value of a wireless phone while operating can be less than the reported
SAR value. This is because the SAR value may vary from call to call,
depending on factors such as proximity to a cell site, the proximity of the
phone to the body while in use, and the use of hands-free devices. For
more information about SARs, see the FCC’s OET Bulletins 56 and 65 at
http://www.fcc.gov/Bureaus/Engineering_Technology/Documents/bulletins
or visit the Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association website at
http://www.ctia.org/consumer_info/index.cfm/AID/10371. You may also
wish to contact the manufacturer of your phone.
Can I minimize my RF exposure?
If you are concerned about RF, there are several simple steps you can take
to minimize your RF exposure. You can, of course, reduce your talk time.
You can place more distance between your body and the source of the RF,
as the exposure level drops off dramatically with distance. The FDA/FCC
website states that “hands-free kits can be used with wireless phones for
convenience and comfort. These systems reduce the absorption of RF
energy in the head because the phone, which is the source of the RF
emissions, will not be placed against the head. On the other hand, if the
phone is mounted against the waist or other part of the body during use,
then that part of the body will absorb more RF energy. Wireless phones
marketed in the U.S. are required to meet safety requirements regardless
of whether they are used against the head or against the body. Either
configuration should result in compliance with the safety limit.” Also, if you
use your wireless phone while in a car, you can use a phone with an
antenna on the outside of the vehicle. You should also read and follow your
wireless phone manufacturer’s instructions for the safe operation of your
phone.
Do wireless phones pose any special risks to children?
The FDA/FCC website states that “the scientific evidence does not show a
danger to users of wireless communication devices, including children.”
Safety
The FDA/FCC website further states that “some groups sponsored by
other national governments have advised that children be discouraged from
using wireless phones at all”. For example, the Stewart Report from the
United Kingdom [“UK”] made such a recommendation in December 2000.
In this report a group of independent experts noted that no evidence exists
that using a cell phone causes brain tumors or other ill effects. [The UK’s]
recommendation to limit cell phone use by children was strictly
precautionary; it was not based on scientific evidence that any health
hazard exists. A copy of the UK’s leaflet is available at http://www.dh.gov.uk
(search “mobile”), or you can write to: NRPB, Chilton, Didcot, Oxon OX11
ORQ, United Kingdom. Copies of the UK’s annual reports on mobile phones
and RF are available online at www.iegmp.org.uk and http://www.hpa.org.
uk/radiation/ (search “mobile”). Parents who wish to reduce their children’s
RF exposure may choose to restrict their children’s wireless phone use.

Safety
Consumer Information on SAR
(Specific Absorption Rate)
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. Although 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. Because the phone is designed to operate at multiple
power levels 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 are:
s Head: 1.10 W/kg
s Body-worn/Hotspot: 1.06 W/kg
147
148
Safety
(Body-worn measurements differ among phone models, depending upon
available accessories and FCC requirements).
While there may be differences between 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 of
http://www.fcc.gov/oet/ea/fccid after searching on FCC ID ZNFVS987.
Additional information on Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) can be found on
the Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association (CTIA) website at
http://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.
FCC Hearing-Aid Compatibility (HAC) Regulations
for Wireless Devices
On July 10, 2003, the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC)
Report and Order in WT Docket 01-309 modified the exception of wireless
phones under the Hearing Aid Compatibility Act of 1988 (HAC Act) to
require digital wireless phones be compatible with hearing-aids. The intent
of the HAC Act is to ensure reasonable access to telecommunications
services for persons with hearing disabilities.
While some wireless phones are used near some hearing devices (hearing
aids and cochlear implants), users may detect a buzzing, humming, or
whining noise. Some hearing devices are more immune than others to this
interference noise, and phones also vary in the amount of interference they
generate.
Safety
The wireless telephone industry has developed a rating system for wireless
phones, to assist hearing device users to find 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 located on the
box.
The ratings are not guarantees. 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 meet FCC requirements and are likely to
generate less interference to hearing devices than phones that are not
labeled.
T-Ratings: Phones rated T3 meet FCC requirements and are likely to
generate less interference to hearing devices than phones that are not
labeled.
Hearing devices may also be rated. Your hearing device manufacturer or
hearing health professional may help you find this rating. Higher ratings
mean that the hearing device is relatively immune to interference noise.
The hearing aid and wireless phone rating values are then added together.
A sum of 5 is considered acceptable for normal use. A sum of 6 is
considered for best use.
In the above example, if a hearing aid meets the M2 level rating and the
wireless phone meets the M3 level rating, the sum of the two values equal
M5. This should provide the hearing aid user with “normal usage” while
using their hearing aid with the particular wireless phone. “Normal usage”
in this context is defined as a signal quality that’s acceptable for normal
operation.
149
150
Safety
The M mark is intended to be synonymous with the U mark. The T mark is
intended to be synonymous with the UT mark. The M and T marks are
recommended by the Alliance for Telecommunications Industries Solutions
(ATIS). The U and UT marks are referenced in Section 20.19 of the FCC
Rules. The HAC rating and measurement procedure are described in the
American National Standards Institute (ANSI) C63.19 standard.
To ensure that the Hearing Aid Compatibility rating for your phone is
maintained, secondary transmitters such as Bluetooth and WLAN
components must be disabled during a call.

http://hearingloss.org/content/telephones-and-mobile-devices
Caution:
Avoid potential hearing loss.
Prolonged exposure to loud sounds (including music) is the most common
cause of preventable hearing loss. Some scientific research suggests that
using portable audio devices, such as portable music players and cellular
telephones, at high volume settings for long durations may lead to
permanent noise-induced hearing loss. This includes the use of
headphones (including headsets, earbuds and Bluetooth® or other wireless
Safety
devices). Exposure to very loud sound has also been associated in some
studies with tinnitus (a ringing in the ear), hypersensitivity to sound and
distorted hearing. Individual susceptibility to noise-induced hearing loss and
other potential hearing problems varies.
The amount of sound produced by a portable audio device varies depending
on the nature of the sound, the device, the device settings and the
headphones. You should follow some commonsense recommendations
when using any portable audio device:
s Set the volume in a quiet environment and select the lowest volume at
which you can hear adequately.
s When using headphones, turn the volume down if you cannot hear the
people speaking near you or if the person sitting next to you can hear
what you are listening to.
s Do not turn the volume up to block out noisy surroundings. If you choose
to listen to your portable device in a noisy environment, use noise­
cancelling headphones to block out background environmental noise.
s Limit the amount of time you listen. As the volume increases, less time is
required before your hearing could be affected.
s Avoid using headphones after exposure to extremely loud noises, such as
concerts, that might cause temporary hearing loss. Temporary hearing
loss might cause unsafe volumes to sound normal.
s Do not listen at any volume that causes you discomfort. If you experience
ringing in your ears, hear muffled speech or experience any temporary
hearing difficulty after listening to your portable audio device, discontinue
use and consult your doctor.

Safety
TIA Safety Information
The following is the complete TIA Safety Information for wireless handheld
phones.
Exposure to Radio Frequency Signal
Your wireless handheld portable phone is a low power radio transmitter and
receiver. When ON, it receives and sends out Radio Frequency (RF) signals.
In August, 1996, the Federal Communications Commissions (FCC) adopted
RF exposure guidelines with safety levels for handheld wireless phones.
Those guidelines are consistent with the safety standards previously set by
both U.S. and international standards bodies:
ANSI C95.1 (1992) *
NCRP Report 86 (1986)
ICNIRP (1996)
* American National Standards Institute; National Council on Radiation
Protection and Measurements; International Commission on Non-Ionizing
Radiation Protection.
Those standards were based on comprehensive and periodic evaluations
of the relevant scientific literature. For example, over 120 scientists,
engineers, and physicians from universities, government health agencies,
and industry reviewed the available body of research to develop the ANSI
Standard (C95.1).
The design of your phone complies with the FCC guidelines (and those
standards)
Antenna Care
Use only the supplied or an approved replacement antenna. Unauthorized
antennas, modifications, or attachments could damage the phone and may
violate FCC regulations.
Phone Operation
NORMAL POSITION: Hold the phone as you would any other telephone
with the antenna pointed up and over your shoulder.
Safety
Tips on Efficient Operation
For your phone to operate most efficiently:
Don’t touch the antenna unnecessarily when the phone is in use. Contact
with the antenna affects call quality and may cause the phone to operate at
a higher power level than otherwise needed.
Electronic Devices
Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from RF signals. However,
certain electronic equipment may not be shielded against the RF signals
from your wireless phone.
Pacemakers
The Health Industry Manufacturers Association recommends that a
minimum separation of six (6) inches be maintained between a handheld
wireless phone and a pacemaker to avoid potential interference with the
pacemaker. These recommendations are consistent with the independent
research by and recommendations of Wireless Technology Research.
Persons with pacemakers:
s Should ALWAYS keep the phone more than six (6) inches from their
pacemaker when the phone is turned ON;
s Should not carry the phone in a breast pocket;
s Should use the ear opposite the pacemaker to minimize the potential for
interference;
s Should turn the phone OFF immediately if there is any reason to suspect
that interference is taking place.
Hearing Aids
Some digital wireless phones may interfere with some 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

these areas instruct you to do so. Hospitals or health care facilities may use
equipment that could be sensitive to external RF energy.
Vehicles
RF signals may affect improperly installed or inadequately shielded
electronic systems in motor vehicles. Check with the manufacturer or its
representative regarding your vehicle. You should also consult the
manufacturer of any equipment that has been added to your vehicle.
Posted Facilities
Turn your phone OFF in any facility where posted notices so require.
Aircraft
FCC regulations prohibit using your phone while in the air. Switch OFF your
phone before boarding an aircraft.
Blasting Areas
To avoid interfering with blasting operations, turn your phone OFF when in
a “blasting area” or in areas posted: “Turn off two-way radio”. Obey all
signs and instructions.
Potentially Explosive Atmosphere
Turn your phone OFF when in any area with a potentially explosive
atmosphere and obey all signs and instructions. Sparks in such areas could
cause an explosion or fire resulting in bodily injury or even death.
Areas with a potentially explosive atmosphere are often, but not always
marked clearly. Potential areas may include: fueling areas (such as gasoline
stations); below deck on boats; fuel or chemical transfer or storage
facilities; 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); and any other area where you would normally be
advised to turn off your vehicle engine.

FDA Consumer Update
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Devices
and Radiological Health Consumer Update on Mobile Phones:
1. Do wireless phones pose a health hazard?
The available scientific evidence does not show that any health problems
are associated with using wireless phones. There is no proof, however, that
wireless phones are absolutely safe. Wireless phones emit low levels of
Radio Frequency (RF) energy in the microwave range while being used.
They also emit very low levels of RF when in standby mode. Whereas high
levels of RF can produce health effects (by heating tissue), exposure to low
level RF that does not produce heating effects causes no known adverse
health effects. Many studies of low level RF exposures have not found any
biological effects. Some studies have suggested that some biological
effects may occur, but such findings have not been confirmed by additional
research. In some cases, other researchers have had difficulty in
reproducing those studies, or in determining the reasons for inconsistent
results.
2. What is the FDA's role concerning the safety of wireless phones?
Under the law, the FDA does not review the safety of radiation-emitting
consumer products such as wireless phones before they can be sold, as it
does with new drugs or medical devices. However, the agency has
159
160
Safety
authority to take action if wireless phones are shown to emit Radio
Frequency (RF) energy at a level that is hazardous to the user. In such a
case, the FDA could require the manufacturers of wireless phones to notify
users of the health hazard and to repair, replace, or recall the phones so
that the hazard no longer exists.
Although the existing scientific data do not justify FDA regulatory actions,
the FDA has urged the wireless phone industry to take a number of steps,
including the following:
s Support needed research into possible biological effects of RF of the type
emitted by wireless phones;
s Design wireless phones in a way that minimizes any RF exposure to the
user that is not necessary for device function; and
s Cooperate in providing users of wireless phones with the best possible
information on possible effects of wireless phone use on human health.
The FDA belongs to an interagency working group of the federal agencies
that have responsibility for different aspects of RF safety to ensure
coordinated efforts at the federal level. The following agencies belong to
this working group:
s National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health
s Environmental Protection Agency
s Occupational Safety and Health Administration
s National Telecommunications and Information Administration
The National Institutes of Health participates in some interagency working
group activities, as well.
The FDA shares regulatory responsibilities for wireless phones with the
Federal Communications Commission (FCC). All phones that are sold in the
United States must comply with FCC safety guidelines that limit RF
exposure. The FCC relies on the FDA and other health agencies for safety
questions about wireless phones.
Safety
The FCC also regulates the base stations that the wireless phone networks
rely upon. While these base stations operate at higher power than do the
wireless phones themselves, the RF exposures that people get from these
base stations are typically thousands of times lower than those they can
get from wireless phones. Base stations are thus not the subject of the
safety questions discussed in this document.
3. What kinds of phones are the subject of this update?
The term “wireless phone” refers here to handheld wireless phones with
built-in antennas, often called “cell”, “mobile”, or “PCS” phones. These
types of wireless phones can expose the user to measurable Radio
Frequency (RF) energy because of the short distance between the phone
and the user’s head.
These RF exposures are limited by FCC safety guidelines that were
developed with the advice of the FDA and other federal health and safety
agencies. When the phone is located at greater distances from the user,
the exposure to RF is drastically lower because a person’s RF exposure
decreases rapidly with increasing distance from the source. The so-called
“cordless phones,” which have a base unit connected to the telephone
wiring in a house, typically operate at far lower power levels, and thus
produce RF exposures far below the FCC safety limits.
4. What are the results of the research done already?
The research done thus far has produced conflicting results, and many
studies have suffered from flaws in their research methods. Animal
experiments investigating the effects of Radio Frequency (RF) energy
exposures characteristic of wireless phones have yielded conflicting results
that often cannot be repeated in other laboratories. A few animal studies,
however, have suggested that low levels of RF could accelerate the
development of cancer in laboratory animals. However, many of the studies
that showed increased tumor development used animals that had been
genetically engineered or treated with cancer-causing chemicals so as to be
pre-disposed to develop cancer in the absence of RF exposure. Other
studies exposed the animals to RF for up to 22 hours per day. These
conditions are not similar to the conditions under which people use
161
162
Safety
wireless phones, so we do not know with certainty what the results of
such studies mean for human health. Three large epidemiology studies
have been published since December 2000. Between them, the studies
investigated any possible association between the use of wireless phones
and primary brain cancer, glioma, meningioma, or acoustic neuroma,
tumors of the brain or salivary gland, leukemia, or other cancers. None of
the studies demonstrated the existence of any harmful health effects from
wireless phone RF exposures. However, none of the studies can answer
questions about long-term exposures, since the average period of phone
use in these studies was around three years.
5. What research is needed to decide whether RF exposure from wireless
phones poses a health risk?
A combination of laboratory studies and epidemiological studies of people
actually using wireless phones would provide some of the data that are
needed. Lifetime animal exposure studies could be completed in a few
years. However, very large numbers of animals would be needed to provide
reliable proof of a cancer promoting effect if one exists. Epidemiological
studies can provide data that is directly applicable to human populations,
but ten or more years follow-up may be needed to provide answers about
some health effects, such as cancer. This is because the interval between
the time of exposure to a cancer-causing agent and the time tumors
develop — if they do — may be many, many years. The interpretation of
epidemiological studies is hampered by difficulties in measuring actual RF
exposure during day-to-day use of wireless phones. Many factors affect
this measurement, such as the angle at which the phone is held, or which
model of phone is used.
6. What is the FDA doing to find out more about the possible health
effects of wireless phone RF?
The FDA is working with the U.S. National Toxicology Program and with
groups of investigators around the world to ensure that high priority animal
studies are conducted to address important questions about the effects of
exposure to Radio Frequency (RF) energy.
Safety
The FDA has been a leading participant in the World Health Organization
International Electro Magnetic Fields (EMF) Project since its inception in
1996. An influential result of this work has been the development of a
detailed agenda of research needs that has driven the establishment of
new research programs around the world. The project has also helped
develop a series of public information documents on EMF issues.
The FDA and the Cellular Telecommunications & Internet Association (CTIA)
have a formal Cooperative Research And Development Agreement
(CRADA) to do research on wireless phone safety. The FDA provides the
scientific oversight, obtaining input from experts in government, industry,
and academic organizations. CTIA-funded research is conducted through
contracts with independent investigators. The initial research will include
both laboratory studies and studies of wireless phone users. The CRADA
will also include a broad assessment of additional research needs in the
context of the latest research developments around the world.
7. How can I find out how much Radio Frequency energy exposure I can
get by using my wireless phone?
All phones sold in the United States must comply with Federal
Communications Commission (FCC) guidelines that limit Radio Frequency
(RF) energy exposures. The FCC established these guidelines in
consultation with the FDA and the other federal health and safety agencies.
The FCC limit for RF exposure from wireless phones is set at a Specific
Absorption Rate (SAR) of 1.6 watts per kilogram (1.6 W/kg). The FCC limit
is consistent with the safety standards developed by the Institute of
Electrical and Electronic Engineering (IEEE) and the National Council on
Radiation Protection and Measurement. The exposure limit takes into
consideration the body’s ability to remove heat from the tissues that absorb
energy from the wireless phone and is set well below levels known to have
effects. Manufacturers of wireless phones must report the RF exposure
level for each model of phone to the FCC. The FCC website (http://www.
fcc.gov/oet/rfsafety) gives directions for locating the FCC identification
number on your phone so you can find your phone’s RF exposure level in
the online listing.
163
164
Safety
8. What has the FDA done to measure the Radio Frequency energy
coming from wireless phones?
The Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) is developing a
technical standard for measuring the Radio Frequency (RF) energy
exposure from wireless phones and other wireless handsets with the
participation and leadership of FDA scientists and engineers. The standard,
“Recommended Practice for Determining the Spatial-Peak Specific
Absorption Rate (SAR) in the Human Body Due to Wireless
Communications Devices: Experimental Techniques”, sets forth the first
consistent test methodology for measuring the rate at which RF is
deposited in the heads of wireless phone users. The test method uses a
tissue-simulating model of the human head. Standardized SAR test
methodology is expected to greatly improve the consistency of
measurements made at different laboratories on the same phone. SAR is
the measurement of the amount of energy absorbed in tissue, either by the
whole body or a small part of the body. It is measured in watts/kg (or
milliwatts/g) of matter. This measurement is used to determine whether a
wireless phone complies with safety guidelines.
9. What steps can I take to reduce my exposure to Radio Frequency
energy from my wireless phone?
If there is a risk from these products — and at this point we do not know
that there is — it is probably very small. But if you are concerned about
avoiding even potential risks, you can take a few simple steps to minimize
your exposure to Radio Frequency (RF) energy. Since time is a key factor in
how much exposure a person receives, reducing the amount of time spent
using a wireless phone will reduce RF exposure. If you must conduct
extended conversations by wireless phone every day, you could place more
distance between your body and the source of the RF, since the exposure
level drops off dramatically with distance. For example, you could use a
headset and carry the wireless phone away from your body or use a
wireless phone connected to a remote antenna. Again, the scientific data
does not demonstrate that wireless phones are harmful. But if you are
concerned about the RF exposure from these products, you can use
Safety
measures like those described above to reduce your RF exposure from
wireless phone use.
10. What about children using wireless phones?
The scientific evidence does not show a danger to users of wireless
phones, including children and teenagers. If you want to take steps to
lower exposure to Radio Frequency (RF) energy, the measures described
above would apply to children and teenagers using wireless phones.
Reducing the time of wireless phone use and increasing the distance
between the user and the RF source will reduce RF exposure.
Some groups sponsored by other national governments have advised that
children be discouraged from using wireless phones at all. For example, the
government in the United Kingdom distributed leaflets containing such a
recommendation in December 2000. They noted that no evidence exists
that using a wireless phone causes brain tumors or other ill effects. Their
recommendation to limit wireless phone use by children was strictly
precautionary; it was not based on scientific evidence that any health
hazard exists.
11. What about wireless phone interference with medical equipment?
Radio Frequency (RF) energy from wireless phones can interact with some
electronic devices. For this reason, the FDA helped develop a detailed test
method to measure Electro Magnetic Interference (EMI) of implanted
cardiac pacemakers and defibrillators from wireless telephones. This test
method is now part of a standard sponsored by the Association for the
Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI). The final draft, a joint
effort by the FDA, medical device manufacturers, and many other groups,
was completed in late 2000. This standard will allow manufacturers to
ensure that cardiac pacemakers and defibrillators are safe from wireless
phone EMI.
The FDA has tested hearing aids for interference from handheld wireless
phones and helped develop a voluntary standard sponsored by the Institute
of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE). This standard specifies test
methods and performance requirements for hearing aids and wireless
phones so that no interference occurs when a person uses a “compatible”
165
166
Safety
phone and a “compatible” hearing aid at the same time. This standard was
approved by the IEEE in 2000.
The FDA continues to monitor the use of wireless phones for possible
interactions with other medical devices. Should harmful interference be
found to occur, the FDA will conduct testing to assess the interference and
work to resolve the problem.

Driving
Check the laws and regulations on the use of wireless phones in the areas
where you drive and always obey them. Also, if using your phone while
driving, please observe the following:
s Give full attention to driving -- driving safely is your first responsibility;
s Use hands-free operation, if available;
s Pull off the road and park before making or answering a call if driving
conditions or the law require it.
Safety
10 Driver Safety Tips
Your wireless phone gives you the powerful ability to communicate by
voice almost anywhere, anytime. An important responsibility accompanies
the benefits of wireless phones, one that every user must uphold.
When operating a car, driving is your first responsibility. When using your
wireless phone behind the wheel of a car, practice good common sense
and remember the following tips:
1. Get to know your wireless phone and its features such as speed dial
and redial. Carefully read your instruction manual and learn to take
advantage of valuable features most phones offer, including automatic
redial and memory. Also, work to memorize the phone keypad so you
can use the speed dial function without taking your attention off the
road.
2. When available, use a hands-free device. A number of hands-free
wireless phone accessories are readily available today. Whether you
choose an installed mounted device for your wireless phone or a
speaker phone accessory, take advantage of these devices if available
to you.
3. Make sure you place your wireless phone within easy reach and where
you can reach it without removing your eyes from the road. If you get
an incoming call at an inconvenient time, if possible, let your voice mail
answer it for you.
4. Suspend conversations during hazardous driving conditions or
situations. Let the person you are speaking with know you are driving; if
necessary, suspend the call in heavy traffic or hazardous weather
conditions. Rain, sleet, snow, and ice can be hazardous, but so is heavy
traffic. As a driver, your first responsibility is to pay attention to the road.
5. Don’t take notes or look up phone numbers while driving. If you are
reading an address book or business card, or writing a “to-do” list while
driving a car, you are not watching where you are going. It is common
sense. Do not get caught in a dangerous situation because you are
reading or writing and not paying attention to the road or nearby
vehicles.
167
168
Safety
6. Dial sensibly and assess the traffic; if possible, place calls when you are
not moving or before pulling into traffic. Try to plan your calls before you
begin your trip or attempt to coincide your calls with times you may be
stopped at a stop sign, red light, or otherwise stationary. But if you need
to dial while driving, follow this simple tip -- dial only a few numbers,
check the road and your mirrors, then continue.
7. Do not engage in stressful or emotional conversations that may be
distracting. Stressful or emotional conversations and driving do not mix;
they are distracting and even dangerous when you are behind the
wheel of a car. Make people you are talking with aware you are driving
and if necessary, suspend conversations which have the potential to
divert your attention from the road.
8. Use your wireless phone to call for help. Your wireless phone is one of
the greatest tools you can own to protect yourself and your family in
dangerous situations -- with your phone at your side, help is only three
numbers away. Dial 911 or other local emergency number in the case of
fire, traffic accident, road hazard, or medical emergency. Remember, it’s
a free call on your wireless phone!
9. Use your wireless phone to help others in emergencies. Your wireless
phone provides you a perfect opportunity to be a “Good Samaritan” in
your community. If you see an auto accident, crime in progress or other
serious emergency where lives are in danger, call 911 or other local
emergency number, as you would want others to do for you.
10. Call roadside assistance or a special wireless non-emergency assistance
number when necessary. Certain situations you encounter while driving
may require attention, but are not urgent enough to merit a call for
emergency services. But you can still use your wireless phone to lend a
hand. If you see a broken-down vehicle posing no serious hazard, a
broken traffic signal, a minor traffic accident where no one appears
injured or a vehicle you know to be stolen, call roadside assistance or
other special non-emergency wireless number
The above tips are meant as general guidelines. Before deciding to use
your mobile device while operating a vehicle, it is recommended that you
consult your applicable jurisdiction’s local laws or other regulations
regarding such use. Such laws or other regulations may prohibit or
Safety
otherwise restrict the manner in which a driver may use his or her phone
while operating a vehicle.

Exposure to radio frequency energy
Radio wave exposure and Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) information.
This mobile phone model LGVS990 has been designed to comply with
applicable safety requirements for exposure to radio waves. These
requirements are based on scientific guidelines that include safety margins
designed to assure the safety of all persons, regardless of age and health.
The radio wave exposure guidelines employ a unit of measurement
known as the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR). Tests for SAR are
conducted using standardized methods with the phone transmitting at
its highest certified power level in all used frequency bands.
While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various LG
phone models, they're all designed to meet the relevant guidelines for
exposure to radio waves.
The SAR limit recommended by the International Commission on
Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) is 2 W/kg averaged over 10g
of tissue.
The highest SAR value for this model phone tested for use at the ear is
0.677 W/kg (10g) and when worn on the body is 1.210 W/kg (10g).
This device meets RF exposure guidelines when used either in the
normal use position against the ear or when positioned at least 0.5 cm
away from the body. When a carry case, belt clip or holder is used for
bodyworn operation, it shouldn't contain metal and should position the
product at least 0.5 cm away from your body. In order to transmit data
files or messages, this device requires a quality connection to the
network. In some cases, transmission of data files or messages may be
delayed until such a connection is available. Ensure the above separation

LIMITED WARRANTY STATEMENT
ARBITRATION NOTICE: THIS LIMITED WARRANTY CONTAINS AN
ARBITRATION PROVISION THAT REQUIRES YOU AND LG TO RESOLVE
DISPUTES BY BINDING ARBITRATION INSTEAD OF IN COURT, UNLESS
YOU CHOOSE TO OPT OUT. IN ARBITRATION, CLASS ACTIONS AND
JURY TRIALS ARE NOT PERMITTED. PLEASE SEE THE SECTION TITLED
“PROCEDURE FOR RESOLVING DISPUTES” BELOW.
Warranty Laws
The following laws govern warranties that arise in retail sales of consumer
goods:
ţ The California Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act [CC §§1790 et
seq],
ţ The California Uniform Commercial Code, Division Two [Com C
§§2101 et seq], and
ţ The federal Magnuson-Moss Warranty Federal Trade Commission
Improvement Act [15 USC §§2301 et seq; 16 CFR Parts 701– 703]. A
typical Magnuson-Moss Act warranty is a written promise that the
product is free of defects or a written promise to refund, repair, or
replace defective goods. [See 15 USC §2301(6).] Remedies include
damages for failing to honor a written warranty or service contract or
for violating disclosure provisions. [See 15 USC §2310(d).] Except for
some labeling and disclosure requirements, the federal Act does not
preempt state law. [See 15 USC §2311.]
1. WHAT THIS WARRANTY COVERS:
LG offers you a limited warranty that the enclosed subscriber unit and its
enclosed accessories will be free from defects in material and
workmanship, according to the following terms and conditions:
(1)The limited warranty for the product extends for TWELVE (12) MONTHS
beginning on the date of purchase of the product with valid proof of
purchase, or absent valid proof of purchase, FIFTEEN (15) MONTHS
from date of manufacture as determined by the unit’s manufacture date
code.
(2)The limited warranty extends only to the original purchaser of the
product and is not assignable or transferable to any subsequent
purchaser/end user.
179
180
LIMITED WARRANTY STATEMENT
(3)This warranty is good only to the original purchaser of the product during
the warranty period as long as it is in the U.S., including Alaska, Hawaii,
U.S. Territories and Canada.
(4)The external housing and cosmetic parts shall be free of defects at the
time of shipment and, therefore, shall not be covered under these
limited warranty terms.
(5)Upon request from LG, the consumer must provide information to
reasonably prove the date of purchase.
(6)The customer shall bear the cost of shipping the product to the
Customer Service Department of LG. LG shall bear the cost of shipping
the product back to the consumer after the completion of service under
this limited warranty.
2. WHAT THIS WARRANTY DOES NOT COVER:
(1)Defects or damages resulting from use of the product in other than its
normal and customary manner.
(2)Defects or damages from abnormal use, abnormal conditions, improper
storage, exposure to moisture or dampness, unauthorized modifications,
unauthorized connections, unauthorized repair, misuse, neglect, abuse,
accident, alteration, improper installation, or other acts which are not the
fault of LG, including damage caused by shipping, blown fuses, spills of
food or liquid.
(3)Breakage or damage to antennas unless caused directly by defects in
material or workmanship.
(4)That the Customer Service Department at LG was not notified by
consumer of the alleged defect or malfunction of the product during the
applicable limited warranty period.
(5)Products which have had the serial number removed or made illegible.
(6)This limited warranty is in lieu of all other warranties, express or implied
either in fact or by operations of law, statutory or otherwise, including,
but not limited to any implied warranty of marketability or fitness for a
particular use.
(7)Damage resulting from use of non LG approved accessories.
(8)All plastic surfaces and all other externally exposed parts that are
scratched or damaged due to normal customer use.

LIMITED WARRANTY STATEMENT
3. WHAT LG WILL DO:
LG will, at its sole option, either repair, replace or refund the purchase price
of any unit that does not conform to this limited warranty. LG may choose
at its option to use functionally equivalent re-conditioned, refurbished or
new units or parts or any units. In addition, LG will not re-install or back-up
any data, applications or software that you have added to your phone. It is
therefore recommended that you back-up any such data or information
prior to sending the unit to LG to avoid the permanent loss of such
information.
4. STATE LAW RIGHTS:
No other express warranty is applicable to this product. THE DURATION OF
ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING THE IMPLIED WARRANTY OF
MARKETABILITY, IS LIMITED TO THE DURATION OF THE EXPRESS
WARRANTY HEREIN. LG SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR THE LOSS OF THE
USE OF THE PRODUCT, INCONVENIENCE, LOSS OR ANY OTHER
DAMAGES, DIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL, ARISING OUT OF THE USE
OF, OR INABILITY TO USE, THIS PRODUCT OR FOR ANY BREACH OF
ANY EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTY, INCLUDING THE IMPLIED
WARRANTY OF MARKETABILITY APPLICABLE TO THIS PRODUCT.
Some states do not allow the exclusive limitation of incidental or
consequential damages or limitations on how long an implied warranty
lasts; so these limitations or exclusions may not apply to you. This warranty
gives you specific legal rights and you may also have other rights which
vary from state to state.
5. HOW TO GET WARRANTY SERVICE:
If you experience any problems with either the Bluetooth headset or the
mobile handset, in each case as may be covered by this limited warranty,
you need only return the affected device. For example, if a problem exists
with the Bluetooth headset, please DO NOT return your mobile handset
with the headset. Likewise, if a problem exists with the mobile handset,
please DO NOT return the Bluetooth Headset with the handset.

LIMITED WARRANTY STATEMENT
PROCEDURE FOR RESOLVING DISPUTES:
ALL DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND LG ARISING OUT OF OR
RELATING IN ANY WAY TO THIS LIMITED WARRANTY OR THE
PRODUCT SHALL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY THROUGH BINDING
ARBITRATION, AND NOT IN A COURT OF GENERAL JURISDICTION.
BINDING ARBITRATION MEANS THAT YOU AND LG ARE EACH
WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL AND TO BRING OR
PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
Definitions. For the purposes of this section, references to “LG” mean
LG Electronics MobileComm U.S.A., Inc., its parents, subsidiaries and
affiliates, and each of their officers, directors, employees, agents,
beneficiaries, predecessors in interest, successors, assigns and
suppliers; references to “dispute” or “claim” shall include any dispute,
claim or controversy of any kind whatsoever (whether based in contract,
tort, statute, regulation, ordinance, fraud, misrepresentation or any other
legal or equitable theory) arising out of or relating in any way to the sale,
condition or performance of the product or this Limited Warranty.
Agreement to Binding Arbitration and Class Action Waiver. You and LG
agree to resolve any claims between us only by binding arbitration on an
individual basis, unless you opt out as provided below. Any dispute
between you and LG shall not be combined or consolidated with a
dispute involving any other person’s or entity’s product or claim. More
specifically, without limitation of the foregoing, any dispute between you
and LG shall not under any circumstances proceed as part of a class or
representative action. Instead of arbitration, either party may bring an
individual action in small claims court, but that small claims court action
may not be brought on a class or representative basis.
Arbitration Rules and Procedures. To begin arbitration of a claim, either
you or LG must make a written demand for arbitration. The arbitration
will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) and
will be conducted before a single arbitrator under the AAA’s Consumer
Arbitration Rules that are in effect at the time the arbitration is initiated
183
184
LIMITED WARRANTY STATEMENT
(referred to as the “AAA Rules”) and under the procedures set forth in
this section. The AAA Rules are available online at
www.adr.org/consumer. Send a copy of your written demand for
arbitration, as well as a copy of this provision, to the AAA in the manner
described in the AAA Rules. You must also send a copy of your written
demand to LG at LG Electronics, USA, Inc. Attn: Legal DepartmentArbitration 1000 Sylvan Avenue Englewood Cliffs, NJ 07632. If there is a
conflict between the AAA Rules and the rules set forth in this section,
the rules set forth in this section will govern. This arbitration provision is
governed by the Federal Arbitration Act. Judgment may be entered on
the arbitrator’s award in any court of competent jurisdiction. All issues
are for the arbitrator to decide, except that issues relating to the scope
and enforceability of the arbitration provision and to the arbitrability of
the dispute are for the court to decide. The arbitrator is bound by the
terms of this provision.
Governing Law: The law of the state of your residence shall govern this
Limited Warranty and any disputes between us except to the extent that
such law is preempted by or inconsistent with applicable federal law.
Fees/Costs. You do not need to pay any fee to begin an arbitration. Upon
receipt of your written demand for arbitration, LG will promptly pay all
arbitration filing fees to the AAA unless you seek more than $25,000 in
damages, in which case the payment of these fees will be governed by
the AAA Rules. Except as otherwise provided for herein, LG will pay all
AAA filing, administration and arbitrator fees for any arbitration initiated
in accordance with the AAA Rules and this arbitration provision. If you
prevail in the arbitration, LG will pay your reasonable attorneys’ fees and
expenses to the extent required by applicable law. If the arbitrator finds
either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the demand is
frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the
standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the
payment of all arbitration fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In
such a situation, you agree to reimburse LG for all monies previously
disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA
LIMITED WARRANTY STATEMENT
Rules. Except as otherwise provided for, LG waives any rights it may
have to seek attorneys’ fees and expenses from you if LG prevails in
the arbitration.
Hearings and Location. If your claim is for $25,000 or less, you may
choose to have the arbitration conducted solely on the basis of (1)
documents submitted to the arbitrator, (2) through a telephonic hearing,
or (3) by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If your
claim exceeds $25,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the
AAA Rules. Any in-person arbitration hearings will be held at a location
within the federal judicial district in which you reside unless we both
agree to another location or we agree to a telephonic arbitration.
Opt Out. You may opt out of this dispute resolution procedure. If you
opt out, neither you nor LG can require the other to participate in an
arbitration proceeding. To opt out, you must send notice to LG no later
than 30 calendar days from the date of the first consumer purchaser’s
purchase of the product by either: (i) sending an e-mail to optout@lge.
com, with the subject line: “Arbitration Opt Out” or (ii) calling 1-800­
980-2973. You must include in the opt out e-mail or provide by
telephone: (a) your name and address; (b) the date on which the product
was purchased; (c) the product model name or model number; and (d)
the IMEI or MEID or Serial Number, as applicable (the IMEI or MEID or
Serial Number can be found (i) on the product box; (ii) on a label on the
back of the product beneath the battery, if the battery is removable; or
(iii) from the settings menu via the following path: Settings > About
phone > Status). You may only opt out of the dispute resolution
procedure in the manner described above (that is, by e-mail or
telephone); no other form of notice will be effective to opt out of this
dispute resolution procedure. Opting out of this dispute resolution
procedure will not affect the coverage of the Limited Warranty in any
way, and you will continue to enjoy the full benefits of the Limited
Warranty. If you keep this product and do not opt out, then you accept
all terms and conditions of the arbitration provision described above.
