Safety Information
Safety Infor- Important
mation
Read this information before using
your wireless handheld phone.
Normal position
Laws pertaining to the use of mobile
phones while driving vary significantly from state-to-state and sometimes even from locality-to-locality
within states. For example, some areas may allow persons to use their
mobile phones only if they employ a
hands-free device, and some areas
may prohibit the use of mobile
phones entirely. Accordingly, Siemens recommends that persons
check the laws for the areas in which
they drive or will be driving. For areas where the use of mobile phones
while driving is permitted, Siemens
encourages persons to use their
phones responsibly and to employ
hands-free devices. Also, if using
your phone while driving, please:
Hold the phone as you would any
other telephone with the antenna
pointed up and over your shoulder.
• Give full attention to driving –
driving safely is your first responsibility;
Tips on efficient operation
• Use hands-free operation, if available;
As this mobile phone is equipped
with a fixed (non-retractable) antenna, some paragraphs in the below text may not be applicable.
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.
© Siemens AG 2001, S:\Mobil\A56\am\ohne_Balken\A56_Security.fm
Driving
Phone operation
For your phone to operate most efficiently:
• Extend your antenna fully (if applicable).
• Do not touch the antenna unnecessarily when the phone is in use.

• Pull off the road and park before
making or answering a call, if driving conditions so require.
A56 AE, A31008-H5320-A100-1-4A19 (31. October 2002, 18:19)
Safety Information
For vehicles equipped with Air
Bags
An air bag inflates with great force.
DO NOT place objects, including either 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.
© Siemens AG 2001, S:\Mobil\A56\am\ohne_Balken\A56_Security.fm
Electronic devices
Most modern electronic equipment
is shielded from radiofrequency (RF)
signals. However, certain electronic
equipment may not be shielded
against the RF signals from your
wireless phone.
Pacemakers
The Health Industry Manufacturer’s
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.
5
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 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 your hearing aid manufacturer to discuss alternatives.
Other Medical Devices
If you use any other personal medical devices, consult the manufacturers of your devices to determine if
they are adequately shielded from
external RF energy. Your physician
may be able to assist you in obtaining this information.
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.

Safety Information
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.
© Siemens AG 2001, S:\Mobil\A56\am\ohne_Balken\A56_Security.fm
Airplanes
FCC and Airline Regulations prohibit
using your phone while in the air.
Turn your phone OFF before boarding an airplane.
Check and comply with the policy of
your airline regarding the use of your
phone while the airplane 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.
Potentially explosive
atmospheres
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
clearly marked. They 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.
Emergency calls (SOS)
Your wireless phone can be used to
make emergency calls. You can
make an emergency call from the
main display screen. Enter the local
emergency number such as 911 and
then press the A key
This phone, like any wireless phone,
operates using radio signals, wireless and landline networks, and userprogrammed functions. Because of
this, connections in all conditions
cannot be guaranteed. Therefore,
you should never rely solely on any
wireless phone for essential communications (for example, medical
emergencies). Remember - to make
or receive any calls, the phone must
be switched on and be used in a service area that has adequate signal
strength. Emergency calls might not
A56 AE, A31008-H5320-A100-1-4A19 (31. October 2002, 18:19)
Safety Information
be possible on all wireless phone
networks or when certain network
services or phone features are in use.
Check with local service providers regarding their network features.
© Siemens AG 2001, S:\Mobil\A56\am\ohne_Balken\A56_Security.fm
Always make certain that your
phone is properly charged before attempting any emergency calls. If
you allow your battery to discharge,
you will be unable to receive or make
calls, including emergency calls. You
must then wait a few minutes after
the charging begins to place any
emergency calls.
When making an emergency call, remember to give all of the necessary
information as accurately as possible. Remember that your wireless
phone might be the only means of
communication at the scene of an
accident, therefore you should not
terminate the call until given permission to do so.

SAR
(Specific
Absorption
Rate)
SAR (Specific Absorption Rate)
THIS SIEMENS A56 PHONE
MEETS THE GOVERNMENT’S REQUIREMENTS FOR EXPOSURE
TO RADIO WAVES.
Your wireless Siemens A56 phone is
a radio transmitter and receiver. It is
designed and manufactured not to
exceed the emission limits for exposure to radiofrequency (RF) energy
set by the Federal Communications
Commission of the U.S. Government. These limits are part of comprehensive guidelines and establish
permitted levels of RF energy for the
general population. The guidelines
are based on standards that were developed by independent scientific
organizations through periodic and
thorough evaluation of scientific
studies. The standards include a substantial safety margin designed to
assure the safety of all persons, regardless of age and health.
The exposure standard for wireless
mobile phones employs a unit of
measurement known as the Specific
Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR
limit set by the FCC is 1.6 W/kg.*
Tests for SAR are conducted using
standard operating positions specified by the FCC with the phone transmitting at its highest certified power
level in all tested frequency bands.
Although the SAR is determined at
the highest certified power level, the
actual SAR level of the phone while
operating can be well below the
maximum value. This is because the
phone is designed to operate at mul-
tiple power levels so as to use only
the power required to reach the network. In general, the closer you are
to a wireless base station antenna,
the lower the power output.
Before a phone model is available for
sale to the public, it must be tested
and certified 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
(for example, at the ear and worn on
the body) as required by the FCC for
each model. The highest SAR value
for this Siemens A56 phone when
tested for use at the ear is 0.76 W/kg,
and when worn on the body, as described in this user guide, is
0.46 W/kg. (Body-worn measurements differ among phone models,
depending upon available accessories and FCC requirements.) While
there may be differences between
the SAR levels of various phones and
at various positions, they all meet
the government requirement for
safe exposure.
The FCC has granted an Equipment
Authorization for this Siemens A56
phone with all reported SAR levels
evaluated as in compliance with the
FCC RF emission guidelines. SAR information on this Siemens A56
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 PWX-A56.
A56 AE, A31008-H5320-A100-1-4A19 (31. October 2002, 18:19)
SAR (Specific Absorption Rate)
For body worn operation, to maintain compliance with FCC RF exposure guidelines, use only Siemens
approved accessories. When carrying the phone while it is on, use the
specific Siemens belt clip that has
been tested for compliance.
© Siemens AG 2001, S:\Mobil\A56\am\ohne_Balken\A56_SAR.fm
Use of non-Siemens-approved accessories may violate FCC RF exposure
guidelines and should be avoided.
* 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.
Additional information on Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) can be found on the Cellular Telecommunications Industry
Association (CTIA) web-site at:
http://www.wow-com.com
For SAR information in other regions please

Quality declaration for battery
The capacity of your mobile phone
battery is reduced each time you
charge/discharge it. Storing the battery at temperatures that are too
high or too low also causes a gradual
loss of capacity. This can cause the
operating times of your mobile
phone to reduce significantly per usage cycle.
The battery is, however, designed to
be charged and fully discharged
within a period of six months from
when the mobile phone was purchased. Following this six-month period, we recommend replacing your
battery if you experience a significant drop in performance. Only purchase original Siemens batteries.

Exposure to
radiofrequency signals
© Siemens AG 2001, S:\Mobil\A56\am\ohne_Balken\A56_Accessory.fm
Your wireless handheld portable
telephone is a low power radio transmitter and receiver. When it is ON, it
receives and also sends out radiofrequency (RF) signals.
In August 1996, The Federal Communications Commission (FCC)
adopted RF exposure guidelines with
safety levels for hand-held wireless
phones. Those guidelines are consistent with the safety standards previously set by both U.S. and international standards bodies:
• American National Standards Institute (ANSI) C95.1 (1992)
• National Council of Radiation Protection and Measurement (NCRP)
Report 86 (1986)
• International Commission of NonIonizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) 1996
• Ministry of Health (Canada) Safety
Code 6
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).
81
The design of your phone complies
with the FCC guidelines (and those
standards). For additional information concerning exposure to radio
frequency signal, see the statement
by the FDA at the end of this user
guide.

The U.S. Food and Drug
Administration's (FDA) 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 know — 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 radio frequency energy (i.e., radio frequency radiation) in the microwave
range while being used. They also
emit very low levels of radio frequency 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 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 so-called “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.

How much evidence is there that handheld 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 showed increased tumor development used animals that had already been treated with cancercausing 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 safe-
85
ty 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 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
FDA is currently working with
government, industry, and academic
groups to ensure the proper followup 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:
• 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
• 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
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 par-

ties, 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 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
87
brain cancer. This is called a casecontrol study. The current case-control 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.
What is FDA's role concerning the safety
of mobile phones?
Under the law, FDA does not review
the safety of radiation emitting 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
A56 AE, A31008-H5320-A100-1-4A19 (31. October 2002, 18:19)
88
U.S. FDA
• 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
© Siemens AG 2001, S:\Mobil\A56\am\ohne_Balken\A56_FDA.FM
• Environmental Protection Agency
• Federal Communications Commission
• Occupational Health and Safety
Administration
• 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.

you the power to communicate by
voice — almost anywhere, anytime.

phones, one that every user must
uphold.

When driving 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:
Get to know your 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 dial — most phones can
store up to 99 numbers in memory
dial. Also, work to memorize the
phone keypad so you can use the
speed dial function without taking
your attention off the road.
A number of hands-free wireless
phone accessories are readily available today. Whether you choose an
installed mounted device for your
phone or a speaker phone accessory,
take advantage of these devices if
they are available to you.
Position your phone within easy reach.
Make sure you place your wireless
phone within easy reach and where
you can grab it without removing
your eyes from the road. If you get
an incoming call at an inconvenient
time, let your voicemail answer it for
you.
Suspend conversations during hazardous driving conditions or situations.
Let the person you are speaking to
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.
Do not take notes or look up phone numbers while driving.
If you are reading an address book or
business card while driving a car, or
writing a “to do” list, then you are not
watching where you are going. It’s
common sense. Don’t get caught in a
dangerous situation because you are
reading or writing and not paying attention to the road or nearby vehicles.

Ten Driving Safety Tips
© Siemens AG 2001, S:\Mobil\A56\am\ohne_Balken\A56_Driving_Tips.fm
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.
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.
Make people you are talking with
aware you are driving and if necessary, suspend phone conversations
that have the potential to divert your
attention from the road.
Use your 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 9-1-1 in the case
of fire, traffic accident, road hazard,
or medical emergency. Remember, it
is a free call on your wireless phone.
Use your 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 emergencies where lives are in danger, call 91-1, as you would want others to do
for you.
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 to 9-1-1. 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 numbers.
“The wireless industry reminds you to
use your phone safely when driving.”
