Health and safety information
SAR certification information
This phone meets European Union (EU)
requirements concerning exposure to radio waves.
Your mobile phone is a radio transmitter and
receiver. It is designed and manufactured to not
exceed the limits for exposure to radio-frequency
(RF) energy, as recommended by the EU Council.
These limits are part of comprehensive guidelines
and establish permitted levels of RF energy for the
general population. The guidelines were developed
by independent scientific organisations through the
periodic and thorough evaluation of scientific
studies. The limits include a substantial safety
margin designed to ensure the safety of all persons,
regardless of age and health.
The exposure standard for mobile phones employs
a unit of measurement known as Specific
Absorption Rate (SAR). The SAR limit
recommended by the EU Council is 2.0 W/kg.1
1. The SAR limit for mobile phones used by the public is
2.0 watts/kilogram (W/kg) averaged over ten grams of
body tissue. The limit incorporates a substantial margin
of safety to give additional protection for the public and
to account for any variations in measurements. The SAR
values may vary, depending on national reporting
requirements and the network band.
The highest SAR value for this model phone was
0.554 W/kg.
SAR tests are conducted using standard operating
positions 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 base
station, the lower the power output of the phone.
Before a new model phone is available for sale to
the public, compliance with the European R&TTE
Directive must be shown. This directive includes as
one of its essential requirements the protection of
the health and safety of the user and any other
person.
Precautions when using batteries
•
•
•
Never use a 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 service provider.
33
Health and safety information

Battery charging time depends on the remaining
battery charge, the type of battery, and the
charger used. The battery can be charged and
discharged hundreds of times, but it will
gradually wear out. When the operation 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 Samsungapproved chargers. Disconnect the charger from
the power source when it is not in use. Do not
leave the battery connected to a charger for
more than a week, since overcharging may
shorten its life.
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
because the capacity and lifetime of the battery
will be reduced. Try to keep the battery at room
temperature. A phone with a hot or cold battery
may not work temporarily, 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
like a coin, clip or pen causes a direct connection
between the + and – terminals of the battery
(metal strips on the battery). For example, do
not carry a spare battery in a pocket or bag
where the battery may contact metal objects.
Short-circuiting the terminals may damage the
battery or the object causing the shortcircuiting.
Dispose of used batteries in accordance with
local regulations. Always recycle. Do not dispose
of batteries in a fire.
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 you are driving a car, driving is your first
responsibility. When using your wireless phone
while driving, follow local regulations in the country
or region you are in.
Operating environment
Remember to follow any special regulations in force
in the area you are in, and always switch off your
phone 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).
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.
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.
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 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 off your phone in health care facilities when
regulations posted in these areas instruct you to do
so.
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 off your phone in any facility where posted
notices require you to do so.
35
Health and safety information
Potentially explosive environments
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
refuelling 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
the areas below decks 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 like medical
emergencies.
36
To make or receive 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. Switch on the phone.
2. Key in the emergency number for your present
location. Emergency numbers vary by location.
3. Press [
].
Certain features like Call Barring may need to be
deactivated before you can make an emergency
call. Consult this document and your local cellular
service provider.
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 installed or
portable wireless equipment, in the area over
the air bag or in the air bag deployment area.
Improperly installed wireless equipment could
result in serious injury if the air bag inflates.
Switch off your phone before boarding an
aircraft. It is dangerous and illegal to use
wireless phones in an aircraft because they can
interfere with the operation of the aircraft.
Failure to observe these instructions may lead to
the suspension or denial of telephone services to
the offender, or legal action, or both.
