develop the ANSI Standard (C95.1).
Since its introduction in the mid 1980s the mobile
phone is one of the most exciting and innovative
products ever developed. Your phone can help you to
stay in touch with your office, your home, emergency
services and others.
The design of your phone complies with the FCC guidelines (and those standards).

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.
l
a
i
c

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 US and international standards bodies:

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.
TIPS ON EFFICIENT OPERATION: For your phone
to operate most efficiently:
• Extend your antenna fully (where applicable).
• 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.
3
Driving
Check the laws and regulations on the use of wireless
telephones in the areas where you drive. Always obey
them. Also, if using your phone while driving, please:
Electronic Devices
• Give full attention to driving - driving safely is your
first responsibility.
• Use handsfree operation, if available.
• Pull off the road and park before making or answering a call if driving conditions so require.
In addition, Ericsson suggests the following safe driving
tips if you are using your phone while driving:
• Get to know your wireless phone and its features
such as speed dial and redial.
• Position your wireless phone
within easy reach.
• Suspend conversations during
hazardous driving conditions or
situations.
mm
• Do not take notes or look up
phone numbers while driving.

• Dial sensibly and assess the traffic; if possible, place
calls when you are not moving or before pulling
into traffic.

Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from RF
signals. However, certain electronic equipment may not
be shielded against RF signals from your wireless phone.
s
c
i
r
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.
E
–
e
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.
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
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.

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.

Potentially Explosive Atmospheres
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.
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.

In
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.

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.
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
bodily injury could result.

Product Care and Operation
Ericsson suggests you read an observe the following for
safe care and operation of your phone:
• To reduce risk of electric shock, unplug the unit
from the power source before attempting any cleaning. Once unplugged, use a soft cloth lightly dampened with water for cleaning.
• Do not allow children to play with your phone.
They could hurt themselves or others, or could accidentally damage the phone. Your phone may contain small parts that could be detached and create a
choking hazard.

so will void warranty. This product does not contain consumer serviceable components. Service
should only be performed by Authorized Service
Centers.

s
• DANGER - Never alter the AC cord or plug. If the
plug will not fit into the outlet, have a proper outlet
installed by a qualified electrician. Improper connection can result in risk of electric shock.
• Do not expose your mobile phone to moisture or
extreme temperatures.
• Only Ericsson original accessories are recommended. Failure to use them may result in loss of
performance or product damage, and will void the
warranty.

• Don’t continue to twist the antenna after it has
been inserted. Excess twisting will damage the
antenna.
• Be cautious if removing your antenna. A detached
antenna may be a choking hazard for children.

Battery Use and Care
A rechargeable battery has a long service life if treated
properly. A new battery, or one that has not been used
for a long period of time, should be conditioned before
using your phone. Avoid recharging a fully-charged or
almost fully-charged battery. This can result in the memory effect, which causes the battery to charge to less than
its full capacity. If your phone shuts off due to low battery power, you should charge the battery within 24
hours for the battery to reach full capacity.
