Health and Safety Information
Health and Safety
Information
Exposure to Radio Frequency (RF) Signals
Your mobile phone is a radio transmitter and
receiver. It is designed and manufactured not to
exceed the emission limits for exposure to radio
frequency (RF) energy set by the Federal
Communications Commission of the U.S.
Government. These limits are part of comprehensive
guidelines and establish permitted levels of RF
energy for the general population. Those guidelines
are consistent with the safety standard previously
set by both U.S. and international standards bodies:
• American National Standards Institute (ANSI)
IEEE. C95.1-1992
• National Council on Radiation Protection and
Measurement (NCRP). Report 86
• International Commission on Non-Ionising
Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) 1996
• Ministry of Health (Canada), Safety Code 6.
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 1.6W/kg.*
* In the U.S. and Canada, the SAR limit for mobile phones used by the public
is 1.6 watts/kg(w/kg) averaged over on 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.
106
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 operation 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 phone model is available for sale to the
public, it must be tested and certified to the FCC that it
does not exceed the limit established by the
government-adopted requirement for safe exposure.
The tests are performed in positions and locations
(e.g., at the ear and worn on the body) as required by
the FCC for each model. (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 safety exposure.
For body worn operation, to maintain compliance with
FCC RF exposure guidelines, use only Samsungapproved accessories. When carrying the phone while
it is on, use the specific Samsung belt-clip that has
been tested for compliance.
Use of non-SAMSUNG-approved accessories may
violate FCC RF exposure guidelines and should be
avoided.

Health and Safety Information
Precautions When Using Batteries
Your phone is powered by a rechargeable Li-ion
standard battery.
• Never use any charger or battery that is damaged
in any way.
• Use the battery only for its intended purpose.

http://www.fda.gov/cdrh/consumer/
• If you use the phone near the network’s base
station, it uses less power; talk and standby times
are greatly affected by the signal strength on the
cellular network and the parameters set by the
network operator.
• Battery charging times depend 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.
108
109
Health and Safety Information
• 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 life-time 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 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 back of 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-circuit.
• Dispose of used batteries in accordance with local
regulations. Always recycle. Do not dispose of
batteries in a fire.
Health and Safety Information
Operating Environment
Remember to follow any special regulations in force
in any area and always switch off your phone
whenever it is forbidden to use it, or when it may
cause interference of 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).
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.
Pacemakers
Pacemaker manufacturers recommend that a
minimum separation of 6 inches (15 cm) be
maintained between a hand-held 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.
110
111
Health and Safety Information
Persons with pacemakers:
• Should always keep the phone more than 6
inches (15 cm) from their pacemaker when the
phone is switched on;
• Should not carry the phone in a breast pocket;
• Should use the ear opposite the pacemaker to
minimise the potential for interference.
• If you have any reason to suspect that
interference is taking place, switch off your
phone 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 hearing aid
manufacturer to discuss alternatives.
Other Medical Devices
If you use any other personal medical device, consult
the manufacturer of your device to determine if they
are adequately shielded from external RF energy.
Your physician may be able to assist you in obtaining
this information. Switch off your phone 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.
112
Health and Safety Information
Posted Facilities
Switch off your phone in any facility where posted
notices so require.
Potentially Explosive Atmospheres
Switch off your phone 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 off the phone 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
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 which may apply to the unit.
Important!
This phone, like any mobile 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 upon any wireless phone for essential
communications (for example, medical emergencies).
Check regularly that all mobile phone equipment on
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 in-vehicle wireless
equipment is improperly installed and the air bag
inflates, serious injury could result.
Switch off your phone before boarding an aircraft.
The use of mobile phones in an aircraft may be
dangerous to the operation of the aircraft, disrupt the
wireless telephone network and may be illegal.
Failure to observe these instructions may lead to the
suspension or denial of telephone services to the
offender, or legal action, or both.
114
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 <SEND>.
If certain features are in use (keyguard, restrict calls,
etc.), you may first need to turn those features off
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.
