Changing the Text Input Mode
When using your phone, you will often need to enter text,
such as when storing a name in 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:
• ABC mode: this mode allows you to enter letters by pressing
Section 5
the key labeled with the letter you want. Press the key once,
twice, three, or four times until it displays.
• 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 the 5 key 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.
When you are in a field that allows characters to be
entered, you will notice the text input mode indicator on
the display.

This section outlines the safety precautions associated
with using your phone. These safety precautions should
be followed to safely use your phone.
Health and Safety Information
Exposure to Radio Frequency (RF) Signals
Certification Information (SAR)
Section 11
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. 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.
130
Health and Safety Information
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.
Section 11: Health and Safety Information
131
Section 11
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: 0.?? W/Kg.
• Body-worn: 0.?? W/Kg.
SAR information on this and other model phones can be
viewed on-line at www.fcc.gov/oet/fccid. 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.
Consumer Information on Wireless Phones
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has
published a series of Questions and Answers for
consumers relating to radio frequency (RF) exposure
from wireless phones. The FDA publication includes the
following information:
Section 11
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 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
132
Consumer Information on Wireless Phones
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.
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
Section 11: Health and Safety Information
133
Section 11
What is FDA's role concerning the safety of wireless
phones?
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.
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
Section 11
• Environmental Protection Agency
• Federal Communications Commission
• Occupational Safety and Health Administration
• National Telecommunications and Information Administration
134
Consumer Information on Wireless Phones
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.
What are the results of the research done already?
Section 11: Health and Safety Information
135
Section 11
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.
Section 11
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
136
Consumer Information on Wireless Phones
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.
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.
Section 11: Health and Safety Information
137
Section 11
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.
Section 11
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.
138
Consumer Information on Wireless Phones
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.
Since there are no known risks from exposure to RF
emissions from wireless phones, there is no reason to
Section 11: Health and Safety Information
139
Section 11
Do wireless phone accessories that claim to shield
the head from RF radiation work?
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. 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.
Section 11
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
140
Consumer Information on Wireless Phones
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.
Section 11
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.
142
Road Safety
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.
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.
Section 11: Health and Safety Information
143
Section 11
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.

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
Section 11
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
144
Using Your Phone Near Other Electronic Devices
from your wireless phone. Consult the manufacturer to
discuss alternatives.
Pacemakers
Pacemaker manufacturers recommend that a minimum
distance of 15 cm (6 inches) be maintained between a
wireless phone and a pacemaker to avoid potential
interference with the pacemaker.
These recommendations are consistent with the
independent research and recommendations of Wireless
Technology Research.
Persons with pacemakers:
• should always keep the phone more than 15 cm (6 inches) 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 minimize
potential interference.
If you have any reason to suspect that interference is
taking place, switch your phone off immediately.
Hearing Aid Compatibility with Mobile Phones
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
Section 11: Health and Safety Information
145
Section 11
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.
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.)
Section 11
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.
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.
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.
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

in progress.
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 userprogrammed 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.
Section 11
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.

FCC Notice and Cautions
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.
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

Cautions
Section 11: Health and Safety Information
149
Section 11
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.
• 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
Section 11
suspension or denial of telephone services to the offender, or
legal action, or both.

Product Performance
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 15 minutes of
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
Section 11: Health and Safety Information
151
Section 11
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.
• 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.
Section 11
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.
152
Battery Standby and Talk Time
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.
• Use the battery only for its intended purpose.
• 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
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.
Section 11: Health and Safety Information
153
Section 11
time.
• Use only Samsung-approved batteries and recharge your
• 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.
• 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.
Section 11
• 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
154
Care and Maintenance
Li-Ion batteries, contact your nearest Samsung authorized
service center. Always recycle. Do not dispose of batteries in a
fire.
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 operating temperature, moisture can form
inside the phone, which may damage the phone's electronic
circuit boards.
• Do not drop, knock or shake the phone. Rough handling can
break internal circuit boards.
detergents to clean the phone. Wipe it with a soft cloth slightly
dampened in a mild soap-and-water solution.
• Do not paint the phone. Paint can clog the device's moving
parts and prevent proper operation.
Section 11: Health and Safety Information
155
Section 11
• Do not use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents or strong
• Do not put the phone in or on heating devices, such as a
microwave oven, a stove or a radiator. The phone may explode
when overheated.
• If your phone is equipped with an external antenna, use only the
supplied or an approved replacement antenna. Unauthorized
antennas or modified accessories may damage the phone and
violate regulations governing radio devices.
• If the phone, battery, charger or any accessory is not working
