Section 1: Health and Safety Information
This section outlines the safety precautions associated with using your device. The
terms “device” or “mobile device” are used in this section to refer to your device.
Read this information before using your mobile device.
Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) Certification
Information
Your wireless mobile device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed and
manufactured not to exceed the exposure limits for Radio Frequency (RF) energy set
by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) of the U.S. Government.
2
These FCC RF exposure limits are derived from the recommendations of two expert
organizations: the National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurement
(NCRP) and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). In both cases,
the recommendations were developed by scientific and engineering experts drawn
from industry, government, and academia after extensive reviews of the scientific
literature related to the biological effects of RF energy.
The RF exposure limit set by the FCC for wireless mobile devices employs a unit of
measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR). The SAR is a measure
of the rate of absorption of RF energy by the human body expressed in units of watts
per kilogram (W/kg). The FCC requires wireless devices to comply with a safety limit
of 1.6 watts per kilogram (1.6 W/kg).
The FCC SAR limit incorporates a substantial margin of safety to give additional
protection to the public and to account for any variations in measurements.
Health and Safety Information
3
SAR tests are conducted using standard operating positions accepted by the FCC
with the mobile device 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 mobile device while operating can be well below
the maximum reported value. This is because the mobile device 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 of the mobile device.
Before a new model device is available for sale to the public, it must be tested and
certified to the FCC that it does not exceed the SAR limit established by the FCC.
Tests for each model mobile device are performed in positions and locations (e.g.
near the body) as required by the FCC.
4
For typical operations, this mobile device has been tested and meets FCC SAR
guidelines.
Use of other accessories may not ensure compliance with FCC RF exposure
guidelines. The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this mobile device
with all reported SAR levels evaluated as in compliance with the FCC RF exposure
guidelines.
This device has a FCC ID number: A3LSMT350 [Model Number: SM-T350] and the
specific SAR levels for this device can be found at the following FCC website:
www.fcc.gov/oet/ea/.
The SAR information for this device can also be found on Samsung’s website:
www.samsung.com/sar
Health and Safety Information
5
SAR information on this and other model mobile devices can be accessed online on
the FCC's website through
http://transition.fcc.gov/oet/rfsafety/sar.html. To find information that pertains to a
particular model mobile device, this site uses the mobile device FCC ID number,
which is usually printed somewhere on the case of the mobile device.
Once you have the FCC ID number for a particular mobile device, follow the
instructions on the website and it should provide values for typical or maximum SAR
for a particular mobile device. Additional SAR information can also be obtained at
www.fcc.gov/encyclopedia/specific-absorption-rate-sar-cellular-telephones

FCC Part 15 Information to User
Pursuant to part 15.21 of the FCC Rules, you are cautioned that changes or
modifications not expressly approved by Samsung could void your authority to
operate the device.
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.
Health and Safety Information
7
Note: This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class
B digital device, pursuant to part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed
to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential
installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency
energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may
cause harmful interference to radio communications.
However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular
installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television
reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is
encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following
measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
8
• Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is
connected.
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.

Caution! Some applications or prolonged usage may increase device temperature.
Prolonged skin contact with a device that is hot to the touch may produce
skin discomfort or redness, or low-temperature burns. If the device feels hot
to the touch, discontinue use and close all applications or turn off the device
until it cools. Always ensure that the device has adequate ventilation and air
flow. Covering the device with bedding, your body, thick clothing or any
other materials that significantly affect air flow may affect the performance
of the device and poses a possible risk of fire or explosion, which could lead
to serious bodily injuries or damage to property.
Health and Safety Information

Procedures for Dispute Resolution/30-day
Arbitration and Opt-Out Policy
ALL DISPUTES WITH SAMSUNG ARISING IN ANY WAY FROM THIS LIMITED
WARRANTY OR THE SALE, CONDITION OR PERFORMANCE OF THE PRODUCTS
SHALL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY THROUGH FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION,
AND NOT BY A COURT OR JURY.
ANY SUCH DISPUTE SHALL NOT BE COMBINED OR CONSOLIDATED WITH A DISPUTE
INVOLVING ANY OTHER PERSON’S OR ENTITY’S PRODUCT OR CLAIM, AND
SPECIFICALLY, WITHOUT LIMITATION OF THE FOREGOING, SHALL NOT UNDER ANY
CIRCUMSTANCES PROCEED AS PART OF A CLASS ACTION. THE ARBITRATION SHALL
BE CONDUCTED BEFORE A SINGLE ARBITRATOR, WHOSE AWARD MAY NOT EXCEED,
IN FORM OR AMOUNT, THE RELIEF ALLOWED BY THE APPLICABLE LAW. The
arbitration shall be conducted according to the American Arbitration Association
Online Legal Information
17
(AAA) Commercial Arbitration Rules applicable to consumer disputes. The AAA Rules
are available online at adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. This
arbitration provision is entered pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act. The laws of
the State of Texas, without reference to its choice of laws principles, shall govern
the interpretation of the Limited Warranty and all disputes that are subject to this
arbitration provision. The arbitrator shall decide all issues of interpretation and
application of this arbitration provision and the Limited Warranty.
For any arbitration in which your total damage claims, exclusive of attorney fees and
expert witness fees, are $5,000.00 or less (“Small Claim”), the arbitrator may, if you
prevail, award your reasonable attorney fees, expert witness fees and costs as part
of any award, but may not grant SAMSUNG its attorney fees, expert witness fees or
costs unless it is determined that the claim was brought in bad faith. In a Small
Claim case, you shall be required to pay no more than half of the total
18
administrative, facility and arbitrator fees, or $50.00 of such fees, whichever is less,
and SAMSUNG shall pay the remainder of such fees. Administrative, facility and
arbitrator fees for arbitrations in which your total damage claims, exclusive of
attorney fees and expert witness fees, exceed $5,000.00 (“Large Claim”) shall be
determined according to AAA rules. In a Large Claim case, the arbitrator may grant
to the prevailing party, or apportion among the parties, reasonable attorney fees,
expert witness fees and costs. Judgment may be entered on the arbitrator’s award
in any court of competent jurisdiction.
This arbitration provision also applies to claims against SAMSUNG’s employees,
representatives and affiliates if any such claim arises from the Product’s sale,
condition or performance.
Online Legal Information
19
