Battery Use and Safety
• In very limited circumstances, such as where your phone
has been exposed to extreme heat Cool Down message
screens will appear. To avoid possible damage to your
battery and phone, you should follow these instructions
until the phone is within its recommended temperature
range. When your phone is in Cool Down mode, only
emergency calls may be made.
• Motorola recommends you always use
Motorola-branded batteries and chargers. The
warranty does not cover damage caused by non-Motorola
batteries and/or chargers.
Caution: Use of an unqualified battery or charger may
present a risk of fire, explosion, leakage, or other hazard.
Improper battery use, or use of a damaged battery, may
result in a fire, explosion, or other hazard.
• Battery usage by children should be supervised.
• Important: Motorola mobile devices are designed to work
best with qualified batteries. If you see a message on your
display such as Invalid Battery or Unable to Charge, take the
following steps:
• Remove the battery and inspect it to confirm it bears a
Motorola “Original Equipment” hologram;
• If there is no hologram, the battery is not a qualified
battery;
72
Legal and Safety
• If there is a hologram, replace the battery and retry
charging it;
• If the message remains, contact a Motorola Authorized
Service Center.
• When storing your battery, keep it in a cool, dry place.
• It is normal over time for battery life to decrease, and for
the battery to exhibit shorter runtime between charges or
require more frequent or longer charging times.
Important: Handle and store batteries properly to avoid
injury or damage. Most battery issues arise from improper
handling of batteries, and particularly from the continued use of
damaged batteries.
DON’Ts
• Don’t disassemble, crush, puncture, shred, or
otherwise attempt to change the form of your
battery.
• Don’t let the phone or battery come in contact with
water. Water can get into the phone’s circuits, leading to
corrosion. If the phone and/or battery get wet, have them
checked by your carrier or contact Motorola, even if they
appear to be working properly.
• Don’t allow the battery to touch metal objects. If
metal objects, such as jewelry, stay in prolonged contact
with the battery contact points, the battery could become
very hot.
• Don’t place your battery near a heat source.
Excessive heat can damage the phone or the battery. High
temperatures can cause the battery to swell, leak, or
malfunction. Therefore:
• Do not dry a wet or damp battery with an appliance or
heat source, such as a hair dryer or microwave oven.
• Avoid leaving your phone in your car in high temperatures.
DOs
• Do avoid dropping the battery or phone. Dropping
these items, especially on a hard surface, can potentially
cause damage.
• Do contact your service provider or Motorola if your
phone or battery has been damaged from dropping
or high temperatures.
Important: Use Motorola Original products for quality
assurance and safeguards. To aid consumers in identifying
authentic Motorola batteries from non-original or counterfeit
batteries (that may not have adequate safety protection), Motorola
provides holograms on its batteries. Consumers should confirm
that any battery they purchase has a “Motorola Original”
hologram.
Motorola recommends you always use Motorola-branded
batteries and chargers. Motorola mobile devices are designed
to work with Motorola batteries. If you see a message on your
display such as Invalid Battery or Unable to Charge, take the following
steps:
• Remove the battery and inspect it to confirm that it has a
“Motorola Original” hologram;
• If there is no hologram, the battery is not a Motorola
battery;
• If there is a hologram, replace the battery and retry
charging it;
• If the message remains, contact a Motorola authorized
service center.
Important: Motorola’s warranty does not cover damage to the
phone caused by non-Motorola batteries and/or chargers.
Warning: Use of a non-Motorola battery or charger may present a
risk of fire, explosion, leakage, or other hazard.
Proper and safe battery disposal and recycling: Proper
battery disposal is not only important for safety, it benefits the
environment. Consumers may recycle their used batteries in many
retail or service provider locations. Additional information on
proper disposal and recycling may be found on the Web:
• www.motorola.com/recycling
• www.rbrc.org/call2recycle/ (in English only)
Disposal: Promptly dispose of used batteries in accordance with
local regulations. Contact your local recycling center or national
recycling organizations for more information on how to dispose of
batteries.
Warning: Never dispose of batteries in a fire because they may
explode.

were developed by independent scientific organizations through
periodic and thorough evaluation of scientific studies. The
standards include a substantial safety margin designed for the
74
Legal and Safety
safety of all persons, regardless of age or health, and to account
for any variations in measurements.
The exposure standard for mobile devices employs a unit of
measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR). The
SAR limit set by the FCC and by the Canadian regulatory
authorities is 1.6 watts per kilogram (W/kg), averaged over one
gram of tissue. Tests for SAR are conducted using procedures
accepted by the FCC and by Industry Canada with the mobile
device transmitting at its highest certified power level in all tested
frequencies. Although the SAR is determined at the highest
certified power level, the actual SAR level of the mobile device
while operating can be below the maximum value. This is because
the mobile device 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, the lower
the power output.
Before a mobile device is available for sale to the public in the U.S.
and Canada, it must be tested and certified to the FCC and Industry
Canada that it does not exceed the limit established by each
government for safe exposure. The tests are performed in
positions and locations (e.g., at the ear and worn on the body)
submitted to the FCC and available for review by Industry Canada.
The highest SAR value for this mobile device when tested for use
at the ear is 1.43 W/kg, and when worn on the body, as described
in this guide, is 1.28 W/kg. Body-worn measurements can differ,
depending upon available accessories and regulatory
requirements. The SAR information includes the Motorola testing
protocol, assessment procedure, and measurement uncertainty
range for this product.
While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various
mobile devices and at various positions, they meet the
governmental requirements for safe exposure. Please note that
improvements to this product model could cause differences in the
SAR value for later products; in all cases, products are designed to
be within the guidelines.
Additional information on SAR can be found on the Cellular
Telecommunications & Internet Association (CTIA) Web site:
http://www.phonefacts.net
or the Canadian Wireless Telecommunications Association (CWTA)

AGPS and Emergency Calls
When you make an emergency call, your mobile device can use
Assisted Global Positioning System (AGPS) satellite signals to tell
the emergency response center your approximate location.
The AGPS feature has limitations, so always tell the emergency
response center your best knowledge of your location. Remain on
the phone for as long as the emergency response center instructs
you.
AGPS might not work for emergency calls, if your local
emergency response center does not process AGPS location
information. For details, contact your local authorities.
If your mobile device cannot find strong AGPS satellite signals, the
location of the nearest cell tower in contact with your mobile
device is automatically provided to the emergency response
center.
AGPS Performance Tips
• Go outside and away from underground locations, covered
vehicles, structures with metal or concrete roofs, tall
buildings, and foliage. Indoor performance might improve
if you move closer to windows, but some window sun
shielding films can block satellite signals.
• Move away from radios, entertainment equipment, and
other electronic devices that might interfere with or block
AGPS satellite signals.
AGPS uses satellites controlled by the U.S. government and
subject to changes implemented in accordance with the
Department of Defense AGPS user policy and the Federal Radio
Navigation Plan. These changes might affect AGPS performance.

Hearing Aid Compatibility With Mobile
Phones
Some Motorola phones are measured for compatibility with
hearing aids. If the box for your particular model has “Rated for
Hearing Aids” printed on it, the following explanation applies.
When some mobile phones are used near some hearing devices
(hearing aids and cochlear implants), users may detect a buzzing,
humming, or whining noise. Some hearing devices are more
immune than others to this interference noise, and phones also
vary in the amount of interference they generate.
The wireless telephone industry has developed ratings for some of
their mobile phones, to assist hearing device users in finding
phones that may be compatible with their hearing devices. Not all
phones have been rated. Phones that are rated have the rating on
their box or a label on the box.
The ratings are not guarantees. Results will vary depending on the
user’s hearing device and hearing loss. If your hearing device
happens to be vulnerable to interference, you may not be able to
use a rated phone successfully. Trying out the phone with your
hearing device is the best way to evaluate it for your personal
needs.
M-Ratings: Phones rated M3 or M4 meet FCC requirements and
are likely to generate less interference to hearing devices than
phones that are not labeled. M4 is the better/higher of the two
ratings.
T-Ratings: Phones rated T3 or T4 meet FCC requirements and are
likely to be more usable with a hearing device’s telecoil (“T
Switch” or “Telephone Switch”) than unrated phones. T4 is the
better/higher of the two ratings. (Note that not all hearing devices
have telecoils in them.)
Hearing devices may also be measured for immunity to this type of
interference. Your hearing device manufacturer or hearing health
professional may help you find results for your hearing device. The
more immune your hearing aid is, the less likely you are to
experience interference noise from mobile phones.
Information From the World Health
Organization
Present scientific information does not indicate the need for any
special precautions for the use of mobile phones. If you are
concerned, you may want to limit your own or your children’s RF
exposure by limiting the length of calls or by using hands-free
devices to keep mobile phones away from your head and body.

Smart Practices While Driving
Drive Safe, Call Smart SM
Check the laws and regulations on the use of phones and
their accessories in the areas where you drive. Always
obey them. The use of these devices may be prohibited or
restricted in certain areas—for example handsfree use
only. Go to www.motorola.com/callsmart (in English only)
for more information.
Your mobile device lets you communicate by voice and
data—almost anywhere, anytime, wherever wireless service is
available and safe conditions allow. When driving a car, driving is
your first responsibility. If you choose to use your phone while
driving, remember the following tips:
• Get to know your Motorola mobile device 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.
• When available, use a handsfree
device. If possible, add an additional
layer of convenience to your phone with
82
Legal and Safety
•
•
•
•
•
one of the many Motorola Original handsfree accessories
available today.
Position your mobile device within easy reach. Be
able to access your phone without removing your eyes
from the road. If you receive an incoming call at an
inconvenient time, if possible, let your voice mail answer
it for you.
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.
Do not take notes or look up phone numbers while
driving. Jotting down a “to do” list or going through your
address book takes attention away from your primary
responsibility, driving safely.
Dial sensibly and assess the traffic; if possible,
place calls when your car is not moving or before
pulling into traffic. If you must make a call while
moving, 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. Make people
you are talking with aware you are driving and suspend
conversations that can divert your attention away from the
road.
Use your mobile device to call for help. Dial 911 or
other local emergency number in the case of fire, traffic
accident, or medical emergencies (wherever wireless
phone service is available).
• Use your mobile device to help others in
emergencies. If you see an auto accident, crime in
progress, or other serious emergency where lives are in
danger, call 911 or other local emergency number
(wherever wireless phone service is available), as you
would want others to do for you.
• 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 wireless number (wherever
wireless phone service is available).
