Section 5: Entering Text
Topics Covered
• Changing the Text Input Mode
• Using T9 Mode
• Using Number Mode
• Using Symbol Mode
• Using ABC Mode
This section outlines how to select the desired text input mode when entering
characters into your phone. This section also describes how to use the T9 predictive
text system to reduce the number of key strokes associated with entering text.
Changing the Text Input Mode
When using your phone, you will often need to enter text, such as when storing a
name in your Phonebook, creating your personal greeting or scheduling events on
your calendar. You can enter alphanumeric characters by using your phone’s keypad.
Your phone has the following text input modes:
• T9 mode: this mode allows you to enter words with only one keystroke per letter.
Each key on the keypad has more than one letter; for example, pressing
can
enter J, K, or L. However, the T9 mode automatically compares the series of
keystrokes you make with an internal linguistic dictionary to determine the most
likely word, thus requiring far fewer keystrokes than the traditional ABC mode.
• Number mode: this mode allows you to enter numbers.
• Symbol mode: this mode allows you to enter symbols, such as punctuation
marks.
• ABC mode: this mode allows you to enter letters by pressing the key labeled with
the letter you want.
When you are in a field that allows characters to be entered, you will notice the text
input mode indicator on the bottom right of the display.

Using T9 Mode
T9 is a predictive text input mode that allows you to key in any character using
single keystrokes. This text input mode is based on a built-in dictionary.
To enter a word in T9 mode:
1. When you are in T9 mode, start entering a word by pressing the 2 to 9
keys. Press each key only once for each letter.
Example: To enter “Hello” in T9 mode, press the 4, 3, 5, 5, and 6 keys.

with it. To enter other special characters within the T9 mode, press and hold the
key to cycle
through these characters.
• To enter periods, hyphens, apostrophes, and other special characters, press
the
key to cycle through these available characters. T9 mode applies
grammar rules to ensure that correct punctuation is used.

Health and Safety Information
Exposure to Radio Frequency (RF) Signals
Certification Information (SAR)
Your wireless phone 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.
Health and Safety Information 118
These FCC exposure limits are derived from the recommendations of two expert
organizations, the National Counsel 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 exposure limit set by the FCC for wireless mobile phones 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 phones to comply with a safety limit
of 1.6 watts per kilogram (1.6 W/kg). The FCC exposure limit incorporates a
substantial margin of safety to give additional protection to the public and to account
for any variations in measurements.
SAR tests are conducted using standard operating positions accepted 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 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.
Before a new model phone is available for sale to the public, it must be tested and
certified to the FCC that it does not exceed the exposure limit established by the
FCC. Tests for each model phone are performed in positions and locations (e.g. at
the ear and worn on the body) as required by the FCC. For body worn operation, this
phone has been tested and meets FCC RF exposure guidelines when used with an
accessory that contains no metal and that positions the handset a minimum of
1.5 cm from the body. Use of other accessories may not ensure compliance with FCC
RF exposure guidelines.
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this mobile phone with all
reported SAR levels evaluated as in compliance with the FCC RF exposure
guidelines. The maximum SAR values for this model phone as reported to the FCC
are:
• Head: 1.13 W/Kg.
• Body-worn: 0.391 W/Kg.
119
Samsung Mobile Products and Recycling
SAR information on this and other model phones can be viewed on-line at
http://www.fcc.gov/oet/ea. To find information that pertains to a particular model
phone, this site uses the phone FCC ID number which is usually printed somewhere
on the case of the phone.
Sometimes it may be necessary to remove the battery pack to find the number. Once
you have the FCC ID number for a particular phone, follow the instructions on the
website and it should provide values for typical or maximum SAR for a particular
phone. Additional product specific SAR information can also be obtained at
www.fcc.gov/cgb/sar.
Samsung Mobile Products and Recycling
Samsung cares for the environment and encourages its customers to recycle
Samsung mobile phones and genuine Samsung accessories.

UL Certified Travel Adapter
The Travel Adapter for this phone has met applicable UL safety requirements. Please
adhere to the following safety instructions per UL guidelines.
FAILURE TO FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS OUTLINED MAY LEAD TO SERIOUS
PERSONAL INJURY AND POSSIBLE PROPERTY DAMAGE
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS - SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS.

The term wireless phone refers here to hand-held wireless phones with built-in
antennas, often called "cell," "mobile," or "PCS" phones. These types of wireless
phones can expose the user to measurable radio frequency energy (RF) because of
the short distance between the phone and the user's head. These RF exposures are
limited by Federal Communications Commission safety guidelines that were
developed with the advice of 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 "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 well within the FCC's compliance limits.
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 radio frequency
energy (RF) in the microwave range while being used. They also emit very low levels
of RF when in the stand-by mode. 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.
What is FDA's role concerning the safety of wireless
phones?
Under the law, 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 radio frequency energy (RF) at a level that is hazardous to
the user. In such a case, 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.
121
Consumer Information on Wireless Phones
Although the existing scientific data do not justify FDA regulatory actions, 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
on possible effects of wireless phone use on human health.
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
• Federal Communications Commission
• Occupational Safety and Health Administration
• National Telecommunications and Information Administration
The National Institutes of Health participates in some interagency working group
activities, as well.
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. FCC relies on FDA
and other health agencies for safety questions about wireless phones.
FCC also regulates the base stations 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 primary subject of the safety questions discussed in this
document.
Health and Safety Information 122
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 radio frequency 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 pre-disposed to
develop cancer in 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
phones 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.
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 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 ten 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.
123
Consumer Information on Wireless Phones
What is FDA doing to find out more about the possible
health effects of wireless phone RF?
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 radio
frequency energy (RF).
FDA 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.
FDA and Cellular Telecommunications & Internet Association (CTIA) have a formal
Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) to do research on
wireless phone safety. FDA provides the scientific oversight, obtaining input from
experts in government, industry, and academic organizations. CTIA-funded research
is conducted through contracts to 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.
What steps can I take to reduce my exposure to radio
frequency 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 radio frequency
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 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.
Health and Safety Information 124
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
radio frequency 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 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.
Do hands-free kits for wireless phones reduce
risks from exposure to RF emissions?
Since there are no known risks from exposure to RF emissions from wireless
phones, there is no reason to believe that hands-free kits reduce risks. Hands-free
kits can be used with wireless phones for convenience and comfort. These systems
reduce the absorption of RF energy in the head because the phone, which is the
source of the RF emissions, will not be placed against the head. On the other hand, if
the phone is mounted against the waist or other part of the body during use, then
that part of the body will absorb more RF energy. Wireless phones marketed in the
U.S. are required to meet safety requirements regardless of whether they are used
against the head or against the body. Either configuration should result in
compliance with the safety limit.
Do wireless phone accessories that claim to shield
the head from RF radiation work?
Since there are no known risks from exposure to RF emissions from wireless
phones, there is no reason to believe that accessories that claim to shield the head
from those emissions reduce risks. Some products that claim to shield the user from
RF absorption use special phone cases, while others involve nothing more than a
metallic accessory attached to the phone. Studies have shown that these products
generally do not work as advertised. Unlike "hand-free" kits, these so-called
"shields" may interfere with proper operation of the phone. The phone may be
forced to boost its power to compensate, leading to an increase in RF absorption.
125
Consumer Information on Wireless Phones
In February 2002, the Federal trade Commission (FTC) charged two companies that
sold devices that claimed to protect wireless phone users from radiation with
making false and unsubstantiated claims. According to FTC, these defendants
lacked a reasonable basis to substantiate their claim.
What about wireless phone interference with
medical equipment?
Radio frequency energy (RF) from wireless phones can interact with some electronic
devices. For this reason, 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 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. FDA has tested 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.
FDA continues to monitor the use of wireless phones for possible interactions with
other medical devices. Should harmful interference be found to occur, FDA will
conduct testing to assess the interference and work to resolve the problem.

Road Safety
Your wireless phone gives you the powerful ability to communicate by voice, almost
anywhere, anytime. 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. 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. 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 and safety to your wireless phone with one of the
many 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 get an
incoming call at an inconvenient time, 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. Do not take notes or look up phone numbers while driving. Jotting down a
"to do" list or flipping 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 that have the potential to divert your attention from
the road.
127
Responsible Listening
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. Remember, it is a free call on your wireless phone!
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.
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 number.

Responsible Listening
Caution!: Avoid potential hearing loss.
Damage to hearing occurs when a person is exposed to loud sounds over time. The
risk of hearing loss increases as sound is played louder and for longer durations.
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 potential hearing problem
varies. Additionally, the amount of sound produced by a portable audio device varies
depending on the nature of the sound, the device settings, and the headphones that
Health and Safety Information 128
are used. As a result, there is no single volume setting that is appropriate for
everyone or for every combination of sound, settings and equipment.
You should follow some commonsense recommendations when using any portable
audio device:
• Set the volume in a quiet environment and select the lowest volume at which you
can hear adequately.
• 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, you noise-cancelling headphones
to block out background environmental noise. By blocking background
environment noise, noise cancelling headphones should allow you to hear the
music at lower volumes than when using earbuds.
• Limit the amount of time you listen. As the volume increases, less time is required
before you 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.

Operating Environment
Remember to follow any special regulations in force in any area and always switch
your phone off whenever it is forbidden to use it, or when it may cause interference
or danger. When connecting the phone or any accessory to another device, read its
user's guide for detailed safety instructions. Do not connect incompatible products.
As with other mobile radio transmitting equipment, users are advised that for the
satisfactory operation of the equipment and for the safety of personnel, it is
recommended that the equipment should only be used in the normal operating
position (held to your ear with the antenna pointing over your shoulder if you are
using an external antenna).
Using Your Phone Near Other Electronic Devices
Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from radio frequency (RF) signals.
However, certain electronic equipment may not be shielded against the RF signals
from your wireless phone. Consult the manufacturer to discuss alternatives.
Health and Safety Information 130
Implantable Medical Devices
A minimum separation of six (6) inches should be maintained between a handheld
wireless phone and an implantable medical device, such as a pacemaker or
implantable cardioverter defibrillator, to avoid potential interference with the device.
Persons who have such devices:
• Should ALWAYS keep the phone more than six (6) inches from their implantable
medical device when the phone is turned ON;
• Should not carry the phone in a breast pocket;
• Should use the ear opposite the implantable medical device to minimize the
potential for interference;
• Should turn the phone OFF immediately if there is any reason to suspect that
interference is taking place.
• Should read and follow the directions from the manufacturer of your implantable
medical device. if you have any questions about using your wireless phone with
such a device, consult your health care provider.
For more information see, http://www.fcc.gov/oet/rfsafety/rf-faqs.html
Hearing Aids
Some digital wireless phones may interfere with some hearing aids. In the event of
such interference, you may wish to consult your hearing aid manufacturer to discuss
alternatives.
Other Medical Devices
If you use any other personal medical devices, 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. Switch 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.
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
Switch your phone off in any facility where posted notices require you to do so.
131
Potentially Explosive Environments
Potentially Explosive Environments
Switch 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.
Users are advised to switch the phone off while at a refueling point (service station).
Users are reminded of the need to observe restrictions on the use of radio equipment
in fuel depots (fuel storage and distribution areas), chemical plants or where blasting
operations are in progress.
Areas with a potentially explosive atmosphere are often but not always clearly
marked. They include below deck on boats, 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
This phone, like any wireless phone, operates using radio signals, wireless and
landline networks as well as user-programmed functions, which cannot guarantee
connection in all conditions. Therefore, you should never rely solely on any wireless
phone for essential communications (medical emergencies, for example).
Remember, to make or receive any calls the phone must be switched on and in a
service area with adequate signal strength. Emergency calls may not be possible on
all wireless phone networks or when certain network services and/or phone features
are in use. Check with local service providers.
To make an emergency call:
1. If the phone is not on, switch it on.
2. Key in the emergency number for your present location (for example, 911
or other official emergency number). Emergency numbers vary by location.
3. Press the
key.
If certain features are in use (call barring, for example), you may first need to
deactivate those features before you can make an emergency call. Consult this
document and your local cellular service provider.
When making an emergency call, remember to give all the necessary information as
accurately as possible. Remember that your phone may be the only means of
communication at the scene of an accident; do not cut off the call until given
permission to do so.
Health and Safety Information 132
Restricting Children's access to your Phone
Your phone is not a toy. Children should not be allowed to play with it because they
could hurt themselves and others, damage the phone or make calls that increase
your phone bill.
FCC Notice and Cautions
FCC Notice
The phone may cause TV or radio interference if used in close proximity to receiving
equipment. The FCC can require you to stop using the phone if such interference
cannot be eliminated.
Vehicles using liquefied petroleum gas (such as propane or butane) must comply
with the National Fire Protection Standard (NFPA-58). For a copy of this standard,
contact the National Fire Protection Association, One Batterymarch Park, Quincy, MA
02269, Attn: Publication Sales Division.
Cautions
Any changes or modifications to your phone not expressly approved in this
document could void your warranty for this equipment, and void your authority to
operate this equipment. Only use approved batteries, antennas and chargers. The
use of any unauthorized accessories may be dangerous and void the phone warranty
if said accessories cause damage or a defect to the phone.
Although your phone is quite sturdy, it is a complex piece of equipment and can be
broken. Avoid dropping, hitting, bending or sitting on it.
Other Important Safety Information
• Only qualified personnel should service the phone or install the phone in a vehicle.
Faulty installation or service may be dangerous and may invalidate any warranty
applicable to the device.
• Check regularly that all wireless phone equipment in your vehicle is mounted and
operating properly.
• Do not store or carry flammable liquids, gases or explosive materials in the same
compartment as the phone, its parts or accessories.
• For vehicles equipped with an air bag, remember that 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 wireless
equipment is improperly installed and the air bag inflates, serious injury could
result.

Product Performance
• Switch your phone off before boarding an aircraft. The use of wireless phone in
aircraft is illegal and may be dangerous to the aircraft's operation.
• Failure to observe these instructions may lead to the suspension or denial of
telephone services to the offender, or legal action, or both.
Product Performance
Getting the Most Out of Your Signal Reception
The quality of each call you make or receive depends on the signal strength in your
area. Your phone informs you of the current signal strength by displaying a number
of bars next to the signal strength icon. The more bars displayed, the stronger the
signal.
If you're inside a building, being near a window may give you better reception.
Understanding the Power Save Feature
If your phone is unable to find a signal after searching, a Power Save feature is
automatically activated. If your phone is active, it periodically rechecks service
availability or you can check it yourself by pressing any key.
Anytime the Power Save feature is activated, a message displays on the screen.
When a signal is found, your phone returns to standby mode.
Understanding How Your Phone Operates
Your phone is basically a radio transmitter and receiver. When it's turned on, it
receives and transmits radio frequency (RF) signals. When you use your phone, the
system handling your call controls the power level. This power can range from 0.006
watts to 0.2 watts in digital mode.
Maintaining Your Phone's Peak Performance
For the best care of your phone, only authorized personnel should service your
phone and accessories. Faulty service may void the warranty.
There are several simple guidelines to operating your phone properly and
maintaining safe, satisfactory service.
• If your phone is equipped with an external antenna, hold the phone with the
antenna raised, fully-extended and over your shoulder.
• Do not hold, bend or twist the phone's antenna, if applicable.
• Do not use the phone if the antenna is damaged.
• If your phone is equipped with an internal antenna, obstructing the internal
antenna could inhibit call performance.
Health and Safety Information 134
• Speak directly into the phone's receiver.
• Avoid exposing your phone and accessories to rain or liquid spills. If your phone
does get wet, immediately turn the power off and remove the battery. If it is
inoperable, call Customer Care for service.
Availability of Various Features/Ring Tones
Many services and features are network dependent and may require additional
subscription and/or usage charges. Not all features are available for purchase or use
in all areas. Downloadable Ring Tones may be available at an additional cost. Other
conditions and restrictions may apply. See your service provider for additional
information.
Battery Standby and Talk Time
Standby and talk times will vary depending on phone usage patterns and conditions.
Battery power consumption depends on factors such as network configuration,
signal strength, operating temperature, features selected, frequency of calls, and
voice, data, and other application usage patterns.
Battery Precautions
• Avoid dropping the cell phone. Dropping it, especially on a hard surface, can
potentially cause damage to the phone and battery. If you suspect damage to the
phone or battery, take it to a service center for inspection.
• Never use any charger or battery that is damaged in any way.
• Do not modify or remanufacture the battery as this could result in serious safety
hazards.
• If you use the phone near the network's base station, it uses less power; talk and
standby time are greatly affected by the signal strength on the cellular network
and the parameters set by the network operator.
• Follow battery usage, storage and charging guidelines found in the user’s guide.
• Battery charging time depends on the remaining battery charge and the type of
battery and charger used. The battery can be charged and discharged hundreds of
times, but it will gradually wear out. When the operation time (talk time and
standby time) is noticeably shorter than normal, it is time to buy a new battery.
• If left unused, a fully charged battery will discharge itself over time.
• Use only Samsung-approved batteries and recharge your battery only with
Samsung-approved chargers. When a charger is not in use, disconnect it from the
power source. Do not leave the battery connected to a charger for more than a
week, since overcharging may shorten its life.
135
Battery Precautions
• Do not use incompatible cell phone batteries and chargers. Some Web sites and
second-hand dealers, not associated with reputable manufacturers and carriers,
might be selling incompatible or even counterfeit batteries and chargers.
Consumers should purchase manufacturer or carrier recommended products and
accessories. If unsure about whether a replacement battery or charger is
compatible, contact the manufacturer of the battery or charger.
• Misuse or use of incompatible phones, batteries, and charging devices could result
in damage to the equipment and a possible risk of fire, explosion, leakage, or other
serious hazard.
• Extreme temperatures will affect the charging capacity of your battery: it may
require cooling or warming first.
• Do not leave the battery in hot or cold places, such as in a car in summer or winter
conditions, as you will reduce the capacity and lifetime of the battery. Always try to
keep the battery at room temperature. A phone with a hot or cold battery may
temporarily not work, even when the battery is fully charged. Li-ion batteries are
particularly affected by temperatures below 0 °C (32 °F).
• Do not place the phone in areas that may get very hot, such as on or near a
cooking surface, cooking appliance, iron, or radiator.
• Do not get your phone or battery wet. Even though they will dry and appear to
operate normally, the circuitry could slowly corrode and pose a safety hazard.
• Do not short-circuit the battery. Accidental short-circuiting can occur when a
metallic object (coin, clip or pen) causes a direct connection between the + and terminals of the battery (metal strips on the battery), for example when you carry a
spare battery in a pocket or bag. Short-circuiting the terminals may damage the
battery or the object causing the short-circuiting.
• Do not permit a battery out of the phone to come in contact with metal objects,
such as coins, keys or jewelry.
• Do not crush, puncture or put a high degree of pressure on the battery as this can
cause an internal short-circuit, resulting in overheating.
• Dispose of used batteries in accordance with local regulations. In some areas, the
disposal of batteries in household or business trash may be prohibited. For safe
disposal options for Li-Ion batteries, contact your nearest Samsung authorized
service center. Always recycle. Do not dispose of batteries in a fire.
Health and Safety Information 136
Care and Maintenance
Your phone is a product of superior design and craftsmanship and should be treated
with care. The suggestions below will help you fulfill any warranty obligations and
allow you to enjoy this product for many years.
• Keep the phone and all its parts and accessories out of the reach of small children.
• Keep the phone dry. Precipitation, humidity and liquids contain minerals that will
corrode electronic circuits.
• Do not use the phone with a wet hand. Doing so may cause an electric shock to
you or damage to the phone.
• Do not use or store the phone in dusty, dirty areas, as its moving parts may be
damaged.
• Do not store the phone in hot areas. High temperatures can shorten the life of
electronic devices, damage batteries, and warp or melt certain plastics.
• Do not store the phone in cold areas. When the phone warms up to its normal
