Wireless Phone Safety Tips
“Safety is your most important call!”
Your Motorola wireless telephone gives you the powerful ability to
communicate by voice - almost anywhere, anytime, wherever wireless
phone service is available and safe conditions allow. But an important
responsibility accompanies the benefits of wireless phones, one that
every user must uphold.
When driving a car, driving is your first responsibility. If you find it
necessary to use your wireless phone while behind the wheel of a car,
practice good common sense and remember the following tips:
1. Get to know your Motorola wireless phone and its features such as
speed dial and redial. If available, these features help you to place
your call without taking your attention off the road.
2. When available, use a hands-free device. If possible, add an additional
layer of convenience to your wireless phone with one of the many
Motorola Original hands-free accessories available today.
3. Position your wireless phone within easy reach. Be able to access your
wireless phone without removing your eyes from the road. If you
receive an incoming call at an inconvenient time, if possible, let your
voice mail answer it for you.
4. 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, ice, and even heavy traffic can be
hazardous.
5. If you receive an incoming call at an inconvenient time do not take
notes or look up phone numbers while driving. Jotting down a “to
do” list or going through your address book takes attention away
from your primary responsibility—driving safely.
6. Dial sensibly and assess the traffic; if possible, place calls when you are
not moving or before pulling into traffic. Try to plan calls when your
car will be stationary. If you need to make a call while moving, 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. Make people you are talking with aware you are driving
and suspend conversations which have the potential to divert your
attention away from the road.
8. Use your wireless phone to call for help. Dial 9-1-1 or other local
emergency number in the case of fire, traffic accident or medical
emergencies.1
9. Use your wireless phone to help others in emergencies. If you see an
auto accident, crime in progress or other serious emergency where
lives are in danger, call 9-1-1 or other local emergency number, as you
would want others to do for you.1
10. Call roadside assistance or a special non-emergency wireless
assistance number when necessary. 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.1
Check the laws and regulations on the use of wireless telephones and
their accessories in the areas where you drive. Always obey them. The use
of these devices may be prohibited or restricted in certain areas.
For more information, please call 1-888-901-SAFE or visit the CTIA
website at www.wow-com.com ™ .

Hand-Held Portable PCS Telephone
IMPORTANT
Read this information before using your
hand-held wireless phone
Exposure To Radio Frequency Signals
Your wireless handheld portable telephone is a low power radio transmitter
and receiver. When it is ON, it receives and also sends out radio frequency (RF)
signals.
In August 1996, the Federal Communications Commission (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:
accessory, ensure the antenna is at least one inch (2.5 centimeters) from your
body when transmitting. Use of non-Motorola accessories may violate FCC RF
exposure guidelines.
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 OPERATION
Hold the phone as you would any other telephone, with the antenna pointed
up and over your shoulder.
TIPS ON EFFICIENT OPERATION
Observe the following guidelines to operate your phone most efficiently.
•
American National Standards Institute (ANSI) IEEE. C95. 1-1992
•
•
National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurement (NCRP).
Report 86
•
International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection
(ICNIRP) 1996
• Do not 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.
•
Ministry of Health (Canada), Safety Code 6
Those standards were based on comprehensive and periodic evaluations of
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). For additional information concerning exposure to radio frequency
signals, see the statement by the FDA at the end of this user guide.
To maintain compliance with FCC RF exposure guidelines, if you wear a
handset on your body, use the Motorola-supplied or approved carrying case,
holster, or other body-worn accessory. If you do not use a body-worn
English

Safety
Extend your antenna fully, if applicable.
Batteries
Caution: All batteries can cause property damage, injury, or burns if a
conductive material, such as jewelry, keys or beaded chains, touches exposed
terminals. The material may complete an electrical circuit and become quite
hot. To protect against such unwanted current drain, exercise care in handling
any charged battery, particularly when placing it inside your pocket, purse or
other container with metal objects. When the battery is detached from the
phone, your batteries are packed with a protective battery cover; please use
this cover for storing your batteries when not in use.
m3gst_en.bk Page 13 Sunday, May 14, 2000 7:49 PM
Driving
Other Medical Devices
Check the laws and regulations on the use of wireless telephones in the areas
where you drive. Always obey them. Observe the following guidelines when
using your phone while driving.
If you use any other personal medical device, consult the manufacturer of your
device to determine if it is adequately shielded from external RF energy. Your
physician may be able to assist you in obtaining this information.
•
Give full attention to driving--driving safely is your first responsibility.
•
Use hands-free operation, if available.
•
Pull off the road and park before making or answering a call if driving
conditions so require.
Turn your phone OFF in health care facilities when any regulations posted in
these areas instruct you to do so. Hospitals or health care facilities may be
using equipment that could be sensitive to external RF energy.
Electronic Devices
Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from RF signals. However,
certain 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 inches (6”) 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;
•
should turn the phone OFF immediately if you have any reason to suspect
that interference is taking place.
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
Switch OFF your phone before boarding an aircraft.
Airline regulations prohibit using your phone while in the air. Check and
comply with the policy of your airline regarding the use of your phone while
the aircraft is on the ground.
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.
Hearing Aids
Some digital wireless phones may interfere with some hearing aids. In the
event of such interference, you may want to consult your hearing aid
manufacturer to discuss alternatives.
Safety

English
English
m3gst_en.bk Page 14 Sunday, May 14, 2000 7:49 PM
Potentially Explosive Atmospheres
Turn your phone OFF, do not remove your battery when you are in any area
with a potentially explosive atmosphere, and obey all signs and instructions.
Sparks from your battery 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,
clearly marked. They include fueling areas such as gasoline stations; below
deck on boats; fuel or chemical transfer or storage facilities; areas where fuel
odors are present (for example, if a gas/propane leak occurs in a car or home);
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.
For Vehicles Equipped with an Air Bag
An air bag inflates with great force. DO NOT place objects, including both
installed or portable wireless equipment, in the area over the air bag or in the
air bag deployment area. If in-vehicle wireless equipment is improperly
installed and the air bag inflates, serious injury could result.

Making a Phone Call
To make a phone call, your phone must be switched on and
unlocked.
It will not be possible to make a phone call unless you are in an
area where there is a GSM1900 service. When a service has been
found, a series of rising bars, x, will show the signal
strength.
There are a number of different ways to make a phone call:
• Using the digit keys.
• Using automatic redial.
• Redialing the last number called.
• One-touch dialing a Phone Book entry*.
• Dialing a Phone Book entry*.
• Calling an embedded number in a message.
The easiest method of making a phone call is to enter the
number using the digit keys then press O.
AIf you make a mistake, press and release the C key to
remove the last digit. Holding the C key down will
remove the entire number.
Your phone will then attempt to make the phone call. The display

the call is not answered, pressing O, at this point will end the
attempt.
Automatic Redial
If your call attempt does not succeed, the message Redial? will
be displayed for five seconds. Pressing O at this point will
automatically redial the phone number.
When the call is answered, you will hear a short ring tone.
The maximum number of redial attempts is set by your Cellular
Service Provider. If the phone call cannot be connected within
this maximum, the message Redial Failed will be shown.
Redialing the Last Number Called
i When in standby mode, press OO.

three seconds before the tones for 1066 are sent to select the
mailbox.
There will be a second pause of three seconds before the tones
for 2001 are sent as the password.

country code follows the conventional format, 49 for Germany,
44 for the UK, 46 for Sweden, etc.
When you dial 911, your phone will automatically send an
emergency message to your PCS network. Keep in mind that you
must be within PCS network coverage area. If allowed by your
service provider, the emergency message can be sent with or
without a Sim card inserted into the phone and regardless of any
seurity code settings.
Just like a conventional international call, remove the leading '0'
of the area code when you dial.

To dial the PCS emergency number press 911 O.
When the emergency call is being made and connected, the
display will show emergency.
AYou may also be able to dial 112, the international
emergency number, to place emergency calls.

U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Devices and
Radiological Health Consumer Update on Mobile Phones
FDA has been receiving inquiries about the safety of mobile
phones, including cellular phones and PCS phones. The following
summarizes what is known--and what remains unknown--about
whether these products can pose a hazard to health, and what
can be done to minimize any potential risk. This information may
be used to respond to questions.
Why the concern?
Mobile phones emit low levels of radiofrequency energy (i.e.,
radiofrequency radiation) in the microwave range while being
used. They also emit very low levels of radiofrequency energy
(RF), considered non-significant, when in the stand-by mode. It is
well known that high levels of RF can produce biological damage
through heating effects (this is how your microwave oven is able
to cook food). However, it is not known whether, to what extent,
or through what mechanism, lower levels of RF might cause
adverse health effects as well. Although some research has been
done to address these questions, no clear picture of the
biological effects of this type of radiation has emerged to date.
Thus, the available science does not allow us to conclude that
mobile phones are absolutely safe, or that they are unsafe.
However, the available scientific evidence does not demonstrate
any adverse health effects associated with the use of mobile
phones.
What kinds of phones are in question?
Questions have been raised about hand-held mobile phones, the
kind that have a built-in antenna that is positioned close to the
user's head during normal telephone conversation. These types
of mobile phones are of concern because of the short distance
between the phone's antenna--the primary source of the RF--and
the person's head. The exposure to RF from mobile phones in
which the antenna is located at greater distances from the user
(on the outside of a car, for example) is drastically lower than that
from hand-held phones, because a person's RF exposure
decreases rapidly with distance from the source. The safety of socalled "cordless phones," which have a base unit connected to
the telephone wiring in a house and which operate at far lower
power levels and frequencies, has not been questioned.
U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
77
English
m3gst_en.bk Page 78 Sunday, May 14, 2000 7:49 PM
How much evidence is there that hand-held mobile phones
might be harmful?
Briefly, there is not enough evidence to know for sure, either
way; however, research efforts are on-going. The existing
scientific evidence is conflicting and many of the studies that
have been done to date have suffered from flaws in their
research methods. Animal experiments investigating the effects
of RF exposures characteristic of mobile phones have yielded
conflicting results. A few animal studies, however, have
suggested that low levels of RF could accelerate the development
of cancer in laboratory animals. In one study, mice genetically
altered to be predisposed to developing one type of cancer
developed more than twice as many such cancers when they
were exposed to RF energy compared to controls. There is much
uncertainty among scientists about whether results obtained
from animal studies apply to the use of mobile phones. First, it is
uncertain how to apply the results obtained in rats and mice to
humans. Second, many of the studies that showed increased
tumor development used animals that had already been treated
with cancer-causing chemicals, and other studies exposed the
animals to the RF virtually continuously--up to 22 hours per day.
For the past five years in the United States, the mobile phone
industry has supported research into the safety of mobile phones.
This research has resulted in two findings in particular that merit
additional study:
1 In a hospital-based, case-control study, researchers looked for
an association between mobile phone use and either glioma
(a type of brain cancer) or acoustic neuroma (a benign tumor
of the nerve sheath). No statistically significant association was
found between mobile phone use and acoustic neuroma.
There was also no association between mobile phone use and
gliomas when all types of gliomas were considered together. It
English
78
U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
should be noted that the average length of mobile phone
exposure in this study was less than three years.
When 20 types of glioma were considered separately,
however, an association was found between mobile phone
use and one rare type of glioma, neuroepithelliomatous
tumors. It is possible with multiple comparisons of the same
sample that this association occurred by chance. Moreover,
the risk did not increase with how often the mobile phone
was used, or the length of the calls. In fact, the risk actually
decreased with cumulative hours of mobile phone use. Most
cancer causing agents increase risk with increased exposure.
An ongoing study of brain cancers by the National Cancer
Institute is expected to bear on the accuracy and repeatability
of these results.1
2 Researchers conducted a large battery of laboratory tests to
assess the effects of exposure to mobile phone RF on genetic
material. These included tests for several kinds of
abnormalities, including mutations, chromosomal aberrations,
DNA strand breaks, and structural changes in the genetic
material of blood cells called lymphocytes. None of the tests
showed any effect of the RF except for the micronucleus assay,
which detects structural effects on the genetic material. The
cells in this assay showed changes after exposure to simulated
cell phone radiation, but only after 24 hours of exposure. It is
possible that exposing the test cells to radiation for this long
resulted in heating. Since this assay is known to be sensitive to
heating, heat alone could have caused the abnormalities to
occur. The data already in the literature on the response of the
micronucleus assay to RF are conflicting. Thus, follow-up
research is necessary.2
m3gst_en.bk Page 79 Sunday, May 14, 2000 7:49 PM
FDA is currently working with government, industry, and
academic groups to ensure the proper follow-up to these
industry-funded research findings. Collaboration with the
Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association (CTIA) in
particular is expected to lead to FDA providing research
recommendations and scientific oversight of new CTIA-funded
research based on such recommendations.
Two other studies of interest have been reported recently in the
literature:
1 Two groups of 18 people were exposed to simulated mobile
phone signals under laboratory conditions while they
performed cognitive function tests. There were no changes in
the subjects' ability to recall words, numbers, or pictures, or in
their spatial memory, but they were able to make choices
more quickly in one visual test when they were exposed to
simulated mobile phone signals. This was the only change
noted among more than 20 variables compared.3
2 In a study of 209 brain tumor cases and 425 matched
controls, there was no increased risk of brain tumors
associated with mobile phone use. When tumors did exist in
certain locations, however, they were more likely to be on the
side of the head where the mobile phone was used. Because
this occurred in only a small number of cases, the increased
likelihood was too small to be statistically significant.4
What is known about cases of human cancer that have been
reported in users of hand-held mobile phones?
Some people who have used mobile phones have been
diagnosed with brain cancer. But it is important to understand
that this type of cancer also occurs among people who have not
used mobile phones. In fact, brain cancer occurs in the U.S.
population at a rate of about 6 new cases per 100,000 people
each year. At that rate, assuming 80 million users of mobile
phones (a number increasing at a rate of about 1 million per
month), about 4800 cases of brain cancer would be expected
each year among those 80 million people, whether or not they
used their phones. Thus it is not possible to tell whether any
individual's cancer arose because of the phone, or whether it
would have happened anyway. A key question is whether the risk
of getting a particular form of cancer is greater among people
who use mobile phones than among the rest of the population.
One way to answer that question is to compare the usage of
mobile phones among people with brain cancer with the use of
mobile phones among appropriately matched people without
brain cancer. This is called a case-control study. The current casecontrol study of brain cancers by the National Cancer Institute, as
well as the follow-up research to be sponsored by industry, will
begin to generate this type of information.
In summary, we do not have enough information at this point to
assure the public that there are, or are not, any low incident
health problems associated with use of mobile phones. FDA
continues to work with all parties, including other federal
agencies and industry, to assure that research is undertaken to
provide the necessary answers to the outstanding questions
about the safety of mobile phones.

What is FDA's role concerning the safety of mobile phones?
Under the law, FDA does not review the safety of radiationemitting consumer products such as mobile phones before
marketing, as it does with new drugs or medical devices.
However, the agency has authority to take action if mobile
phones are shown to emit radiation at a level that is hazardous to
the user. In such a case, FDA could require the manufacturers of
mobile 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 at this time, FDA has urged the mobile phone industry to
take a number of steps to assure public safety. The agency has
recommended that the industry:
• support needed research into possible biological effects of RF
of the type emitted by mobile phones;
• design mobile phones in a way that minimizes any RF
exposure to the user that is not necessary for device function;
and
• cooperate in providing mobile phone users with the best
possible information on what is known about possible effects
of mobile phone use on human health.
At the same time, FDA belongs to an interagency working group
of the federal agencies that have responsibility for different
aspects of mobile phone safety to ensure a coordinated effort at
the federal level. These agencies are:
• National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health
• Environmental Protection Agency
• Federal Communications Commission
• Occupational Health and Safety Administration

U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
• National Telecommunications and Information Administration
The National Institutes of Health also participates in this group.
In the absence of conclusive information about any possible
risk, what can concerned individuals do?
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 people are
concerned about avoiding even potential risks, there are simple
steps they can take to do so. For example, time is a key factor in
how much exposure a person receives. Those persons who spend
long periods of time on their hand-held mobile phones could
consider holding lengthy conversations on conventional phones
and reserving the hand-held models for shorter conversations or
for situations when other types of phones are not available.
People who must conduct extended conversations in their cars
every day could switch to a type of mobile phone that places
more distance between their bodies and the source of the RF,
since the exposure level drops off dramatically with distance. For
example, they could switch to:
• a mobile phone in which the antenna is located outside the
vehicle,
• a hand-held phone with a built-in antenna connected to a
different antenna mounted on the outside of the car or built
into a separate package, or
• a headset with a remote antenna to a mobile phone carried at
the waist.
Again, the scientific data do not demonstrate that mobile phones
are harmful. But if people are concerned about the
radiofrequency energy from these products, taking the simple
precautions outlined above can reduce any possible risk.
