SAR Information
SAR Information
Specific Absorption Rate
THIS MODEL PHONE MEETS THE GOVERNMENT’S REQUIREMENTS FOR
EXPOSURE TO RADIO WAVES.
Your wireless 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 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 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., worn on the body) as required
by the FCC for each model. The highest SAR value for this model phone tested when being worn
on the body, as described in this user guide, is 0.56W/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 model phone with all reported SAR
levels evaluated as in compliance with the FCC RF exposure guidelines. SAR information on this
model 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 CJ6CET0200MT.
Additional information on Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) can be found on the Cellular
Telecommunications & Internet Association (CTIA) web-site at http://www.phonefacts.net.
*
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.

•
For optimal performance use in an environment between 59°F - 77°F (15°C and 25°C).
Anything outside this temperature range may decrease the operating time.
Set the screen brightness to power savings mode (front light off) or shorten the front light
turn-off time. See “Customizing Your Device” later in this chapter for more information.
Battery Life
The built-in battery has a limited life that will gradually decrease after repeated charging. Replace
the battery when you notice a dramatic decrease in battery performance.
Battery Charge Level and Stored Data Protection
If the battery charge level becomes extremely low or completely discharged, stored memory data
will be deleted. As soon as the low battery status icon or the alarm message appears, immediately
connect the AC Adapter to the device so it can charge.
• The battery gradually discharges even when not in use. If not used for a long time, it may
completely discharge.
• It is strongly recommended that you save the device’s memory data to your computer or a
storage card. The manufacturer is not responsible for data changed or lost due to battery

Microsoft® ActiveSync® synchronizes the information on your computer with the information on your
device. Synchronization compares data between the two and updates both with the most recent
information. For example:
• Keep Pocket Outlook® data up-to-date by synchronizing your device with your computer’s
Microsoft® Outlook®.
• Synchronize Microsoft® Word and Microsoft® Excel files between the two. Files will be
automatically converted to the correct format.
Note Use ActiveSync® options to select which types of information to be synchronized.
With ActiveSync®, you can also:
• Back up and restore your device data.
• Copy (rather than synchronize) files between your device and computer.
• Control when synchronization occurs by selecting a synchronization mode. For example, you
can synchronize continually while connected to your computer or only when you choose the
synchronize command.
• Select which information types are synchronized and control how much data is synchronized.
For example, you can choose how many weeks of past appointments you want synchronized.
Before you begin synchronization, install ActiveSync® on your computer from the Companion CD.
For more information on installing ActiveSync®, see your Quick Start Card. ActiveSync® is already
installed on your device.

Chapter 4: Microsoft® ActiveSync®
After installation is complete, the ActiveSync® Setup Wizard will:
1. Help connect your device to your computer.
2. Set up a partnership to synchronize information between the two devices.
3. Customize the synchronization settings.
Synchronization automatically begins when you finish using the Wizard. After this initial
synchronization, view your device’s Calendar, Contacts and Tasks. Everything stored in Microsoft®
Outlook® on your computer should now be on your device. Disconnect the device from your

Inbox: Sending and Receiving E-mail Messages
Use Inbox to send and receive e-mail messages in either of these ways:
• Synchronize e-mail messages with Microsoft® Exchange or Microsoft® Outlook® on your
computer.
• Send and receive e-mail messages by connecting directly to an e-mail server through an
Internet service provider (ISP) or a network.
Synchronizing E-mail Messages
E-mail messages can be synchronized as part of the general synchronization process. You will
need to enable Inbox synchronization in ActiveSync®. For information on enabling Inbox
synchronization, see ActiveSync® Help on the computer.
During synchronization:
• Messages are copied from the mail folders of Exchange or Outlook® on your computer to the
ActiveSync folder in Inbox on your device. By default, you will receive messages from the
past five days only, the first 100 lines of each message, and those not including file
attachments.
• E-mail messages in the Outbox folder on your device are transferred to Exchange or
Outlook®, and then sent from those programs.
• E-mail messages in subfolders must be selected in ActiveSync® on your computer in order to
be transferred.
Note You can also synchronize e-mail messages with your computer from a remote location.
For more information, see Chapter 8.
Connecting Directly to an E-mail Server
The phone on your device can send and receive e-mail messages by connecting to an e-mail
server. For more information about establishing this remote connection, see Chapter 8.
Once connected to the e-mail server:
• New messages are downloaded to the device Inbox folder,
• Messages in the device Outbox folder are sent; and
• Deleted messages are removed from the device Inbox folder
Messages received directly from an e-mail server are linked to your e-mail server rather than your
computer. When a message is deleted from your device, it will also be deleted from the e-mail
server the next time you connect.
When working online connected to your server, you can immediately read and respond to
messages - they are sent as soon as you tap Send, saving space on your device.
To work offline, download new message headers or partial messages, and disconnect from the
server. You can then mark which messages to completely download the next time you connect.

Managing E-mail Messages and Folders
Messages are displayed in one of five folders: Inbox, Deleted Items, Drafts, Outbox and Sent
Items. The Deleted Items folder contains messages that have been deleted on the device. The
behavior of the Deleted and Sent Items folders depends on the options you have chosen. In the
message list, tap Tools then Options. On the Message tab, select your options.
To create new folders, tap Tools then Manage Folders. For all service except ActiveSync®, you
can access folder options by tapping Tools then Manage Folders. To move a message to another
folder, tap and hold the message and then tap Move to on the pop-up menu.
Folder behavior with a direct connection to an e-mail server
The behavior of the folders you create depends on whether you are using ActiveSync®, POP3, or
IMAP4:
• If you use ActiveSync®, e-mail messages in the Inbox folder in Outlook® will automatically be
synchronized with your device. You can select to synchronize additional folders by
designating them for ActiveSync®. The folders you create and the messages you move will
then be mirrored on the server. For example, if you move two messages from the Inbox folder
to a folder named Family, and you have designated Family for synchronization, the server
creates a copy of the Family folder and copies the messages into that folder. You can then
read the messages while away from your computer.
• If you use POP3 and you move e-mail messages to a folder you created, the link is broken
between the messages on the device and their copies on the mail server. The next time you
connect, the mail server will see that the messages are missing from the device Inbox and
delete them from the server. While this eliminates duplicate copies of messages, you will no
longer have access to messages moved to folders created anywhere except the device.
• If you use IMAP4, the folders you create and the e-mail messages you move are mirrored on
the server. Therefore, messages are available to you anytime you connect to your mail
server, whether it is from your device or computer.

FDA Consumer Update
U.S. Food and Drug Administration - Center for Devices and Radiological
Health
Consumer Update on Wireless Phones
1. 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 radiofrequency 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.
2. 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 radiofrequency 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.
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.
149
FDA Consumer Update
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 subject of the safety questions discussed
in this document.
3. What kinds of phones are the subject of this update?
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 radiofrequency 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 far
below the FCC safety limits.
4. 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 radiofrequency
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 the 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 phone 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.
150
FDA Consumer Update
5. 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 10 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.
6. 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 radiofrequency 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 the 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.
7. How can I find out how much radiofrequency energy exposure I can get by using my
wireless phone?
All phones sold in the United States must comply with Federal Communications Commission
(FCC) guidelines that limit radiofrequency energy (RF) exposures. FCC established these
guidelines in consultation with FDA and the other federal health and safety agencies. The FCC limit
for RF exposure from wireless telephones is set at a Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) of 1.6 watts
per kilogram (1.6 W/kg). The FCC limit is consistent with the safety standards developed by the
Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (IEEE) and the National Council on Radiation
Protection and Measurement. The exposure limit takes into consideration the body’s ability to
remove heat from the tissues that absorb energy from the wireless phone and is set well below
levels known to have effects.

FDA Consumer Update
Manufacturers of wireless phones must report the RF exposure level for each model of phone to
the FCC. The FCC website (http://www.fcc.gov/oet/rfsafety) gives directions for locating the FCC
identification number on your phone so you can find your phone’s RF exposure level in the online
listing.
8. What has FDA done to measure the radiofrequency energy coming from wireless
phones?
The Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) is developing a technical standard for
measuring the radiofrequency energy (RF) exposure from wireless phones and other wireless
handsets with the participation and leadership of FDA scientists and engineers. The standard,
“Recommended Practice for Determining the Spatial-Peak Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) in the
Human Body Due to Wireless Communications devices: Experimental Techniques,” sets forth the
first consistent test methodology for measuring the rate at which RF is deposited in the heads of
wireless phone users. The test method uses a tissue-simulating model of the human head.
Standardized SAR test methodology is expected to greatly improve the consistency of
measurements made at different laboratories on the same phone. SAR is the measurement of the
amount of energy absorbed in tissue, either by the whole body or a small part of the body. It is
measured in watts/kg (or milliwatts/g) of matter. This measurement is used to determine whether a
wireless phone complies with safety guidelines.
9. What steps can I take to reduce my exposure to radiofrequency 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 radiofrequency 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.
10. 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 radiofrequency 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.

FDA Consumer Update
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.
11. What about wireless phone interference with medical equipment?
Radiofrequency 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 hearing aids for interference from handheld 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 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.
