Exposure to Radio Frequency
Signal
Your wireless handheld portable telephone
is a lowpower radio transmitter and receiver.
When it is ON, it receives and also 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)
92
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).

Tips on Efficient Operation
Pacemakers
For your phone to operate most efficiently:
Do not tap 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.
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:
] Should ALWAYS keep the phone more than
six inches from their pacemaker when the
phone is turned ON;
] Should not carry the phone in a breast
pocket.
] Should use the ear opposite the pacemaker
to minimize the potential for interference.
] If you have any reason to suspect that
interference is taking place, turn your
phone OFF immediately.
Driving
Check the laws and regulations on the use of
wireless phones in the areas where you drive.
Always obey them. Also, if using your phone
while driving, please:
] Give full attention to driving - driving safely
is your first responsibility;

Safety Guidelines
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 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
common sense recommendations when using
any portable audio device: 204 Safety
] Set the volume in a quiet environment and
select the lowest volume at which you can
hear adequately.
98
] 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.
] 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 noisecancelling
headphones to block out background
environmental noise.
] Limit the amount of time you listen. As the
volume increases, less time is required
before your hearing could be affected.
] Avoid using headphones after exposure
to extremely loud noises, such as rock
concerts, that might cause temporary
hearing loss. Temporary hearing loss might
cause unsafe volumes to sound normal.
] 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 Guidelines
FDA Consumer Update
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration 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 radiofrequency energy
(RF) in the microwave range while being
used. They also emit very low levels of RF
when in the Home screen. 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
authority to take action if wireless phones
are shown to emit radiofrequency energy
(RF) 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:
] Support needed research into possible
biological effects of RF of the type emitted
by wireless phones;
] Design wireless phones in a way that
minimizes any RF exposure to the user that
is not necessary for device function; and
] Cooperate in providing users of wireless
phones with the best possible information
101
Safety Guidelines
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:
] National Institute for Occupational Safety
and Health
] Environmental Protection Agency
] Occupational Safety and Health
Administration
] 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.
The FCC also regulates the base stations
102
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
radiofrequency energy (RF) 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
Safety Guidelines
‘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 radiofrequency energy (RF)
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 predisposed 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 wireless
phones, so we don’t 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
103
Safety Guidelines
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 10 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 radiofrequency energy (RF). The FDA
104
has been a leading participant in the
World Health Organization International
Electromagnetic 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.
Safety Guidelines
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 energy (RF) 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 telephones 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.
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
energy (RF) 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 tissuesimulating 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
105
Safety Guidelines
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 radiofrequency 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 radiofrequency
energy (RF). 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
106
do not demonstrate that wireless phones are
harmful. But if you are concerned about the
RF exposure from these products, you can
use 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
radiofrequency energy (RF), 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
Safety Guidelines
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 energy (RF) from wireless
phones can interact with some electronic
devices. For this reason, the FDA helped
develop a detailed test method to measure
electromagnetic 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’ 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.

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.
108
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. Position your wireless phone within easy
reach. 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
voicemail 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. Do not 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.
Safety Guidelines
Don’t get caught in a dangerous situation
because you are reading or writing and
not paying attention to the road or nearby
vehicles.
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 is 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.

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 (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
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 value
for this phone when tested for use at the ear
is 0.29 W/kg and when worn on the body, as
described in this user’s manual, is
1.07 W/kg. (Body-worn measurements differ
among phones 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
Safety Guidelines
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/fccid after
searching on FCC ID BEJP925.
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.
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.
111
Safety Guidelines
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 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.
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
112
“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.
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.
When you’re talking on a cell phone, it’s
recommended that you turn the BT (Bluetooth)
mode off for HAC.
According to HAC policy(KDB 285076), we state
this handset has not been rated for hearing aid
compatibility with respect to the WiFi capability.
