Section 1: Health and Safety Information
Getting the Most Out of Your Reception
Keeping Tabs on Signal Strength
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, No Service
and an Antenna icon display on the screen. When a signal is found, your
phone returns to standby mode.
Understanding How Your Phone Operates
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.
Knowing Radio Frequency Safety
The design of your phone complies with updated NCRP standards
described below. In 1991-92, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics
Engineers (IEEE) and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI)
Health and Safety Information
2
t669.book Page 3 Thursday, March 31, 2011 3:30 PM
joined in updating ANSI’s 1982 standard for safety levels with respect to
human exposure to RF signals. More than 120 scientists, engineers and
physicians from universities, government health agencies and industries
developed this updated standard after reviewing the available body of
research. In 1993, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)
adopted this updated standard in a regulation. In August 1996, the FCC
adopted hybrid standard consisting of the existing ANSI/IEEE standard and
the guidelines published by the National Council of Radiation Protection
and Measurements (NCRP).
Maintaining Your Phone’s Peak Performance
There are several simple guidelines for operating your phone properly and
maintaining safe, satisfactory service.
• Speak directly into the mouthpiece.
• 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’s inoperable, return it to a dealer store or call Customer Support for
service.
Note: For the best care of your phone, only authorized personnel should service your
phone and accessories. Faulty service may void the warranty.
Maintaining Safe Use of and Access to Your Phone
Failure to follow the instructions outlined may lead to serious personal
injury and possible property damage.
Using Your Phone While Driving
Talking on your phone while driving (or operating the phone without a
hands-free device) is prohibited in some jurisdictions. Laws vary as to
specific restrictions. Remember that safety always comes first.
3
t669.book Page 4 Thursday, March 31, 2011 3:30 PM
When using your phone in the car:
• Get to know your phone and its features, such as speed dial and re-dial.
• When available, use a hands-free device.
• Position your phone within easy reach.
• Let the person you are speaking to know you are driving; if necessary,
suspend the call in heavy traffic or hazardous weather conditions.
• Do not take notes or look up phone numbers while driving.
• Dial sensibly and assess the traffic; if possible, place calls when stationary
or before pulling into traffic.
• Do not engage in stressful or emotional conversations that may divert your
attention from the road.
• Dial 911 to report serious emergencies. It’s free from your wireless phone.
• Use your phone to help others in emergencies.
• Call roadside assistance or a special non-emergency wireless number
when necessary.
Following Safety Guidelines
To operate your phone safely and efficiently, always follow any special
regulations in a given area. Turn your phone off in areas where use is
forbidden or when it may cause interference or danger.
Using Your Phone Near Other Electronic Devices
Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from radio frequency (RF)
signals. However, RF signals from wireless phones may affect
inadequately shielded electronic equipment.
RF signals may affect improperly installed or inadequately shielded
electronic operating systems and/or entertainment systems in motor
Health and Safety Information
4
t669.book Page 5 Thursday, March 31, 2011 3:30 PM
vehicles. Check with the manufacturer or their representative to determine
if these systems are adequately shielded from external RF signals. Also
check with the manufacturer regarding any equipment that has been added
to your vehicle.
Consult the manufacturer of any personal medical devices, such as
pacemakers and hearing aids, to determine if they are adequately shielded
from external RF signals.
Note: Always turn off the phone in health care facilities and request permission before
using the phone near medical equipment.
Turning Off Your Phone Before Flying
Turn off your phone before boarding any aircraft. To prevent possible
interference with aircraft systems, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration
(FAA) regulations require you to have permission from a crew member to
use your phone while the plane is on the ground. To prevent any risk of
interference, FCC regulations prohibit using your phone while the plane is
in the air.
Turning Off Your Phone in Dangerous Areas
To avoid interfering with blasting operations, turn off your phone when in a
blasting area or in other areas with signs indicating that two-way radios
should be turned off. Construction crews often use remote-control RF
devices to set off explosives.
Turn off your phone when you are in an area with a potentially explosive
atmosphere. Although it is rare, your phone or its accessories could generate
sparks. Sparks could cause an explosion or a fire resulting in bodily injury or
even death. These areas are often, but not always, clearly marked. These
areas include:

•
•
•
•
Fueling areas such as gas stations.
Below deck on boats.
Fuel or chemical transfer or storage facilities.
Areas where the air contains chemicals or particles such as grain, dust or
metal powders.
• Any other area where you would normally be advised to turn off your
vehicle’s engine.
Note: Never transport or store flammable gas, liquid or explosives in the compartment of
your vehicle that contains your phone or accessories.
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 others, damage the phone, dial
911 by mistake or make calls that increase your phone bill.
Warning Regarding Display
The display on your handset is made of glass or acrylic and could break if
your handset is dropped or if it receives significant impact. Do not use if
screen is broken or cracked as this could cause injury to you.
Caring for the Battery
Protecting Your Battery
The guidelines listed below help you get the most out of your battery’s
performance.
• Use only Samsung approved batteries and desktop chargers. These
chargers are designed to maximize battery life. Using other batteries or
chargers voids your warranty and may cause damage.
Health and Safety Information
6
t669.book Page 7 Thursday, March 31, 2011 3:30 PM
• In order to avoid damage, charge the battery only in temperatures that
range from 32º F to 113º F (0º C to 45º C).
• Don’t use the battery charger in direct sunlight or in high humidity areas,
such as the bathroom.
• Never dispose of the battery by incineration.
• Keep the metal contacts on top of the battery clean.
• Don’t attempt to disassemble or short-circuit the battery.
• The battery may need recharging if it has not been used for a long period of
time.
• It’s best to replace the battery when it no longer provides acceptable
performance. When used correctly, the battery can be recharged hundreds
of times before it needs replacing.
• Don’t store the battery in high temperature areas for long periods of time.
It’s best to follow these storage rules:
– Less than one month:
– -4º F to 140º F (-20º C to 60º C)
– More than one month:
– -4º F to 113º F (-20º C to 45º C)
Disposal of Lithium Ion (LiIon) Batteries
For safe disposal options of your LiIon batteries, contact your nearest

Canada Notice
Cautions
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.
Information to User
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits of a
Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits
are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference
in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can
radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance
with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio
communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not
occur in a particular installation; if this equipment does cause harmful
interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by
turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct
the interference by one or more of the following measures:
• Reorient / relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
Health and Safety Information
8
t669.book Page 9 Thursday, March 31, 2011 3:30 PM
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which
the receiver is connected.
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) for Wireless Phones
The SAR is a value that corresponds to the relative amount of RF energy
absorbed in the head of a user of a wireless handset.
The SAR value of a phone is the result of an extensive testing, measuring
and calculation process. It does not represent how much RF the phone
emits. All phone models are tested at their highest value in strict laboratory
settings. But when in operation, the SAR of a phone can be substantially
less than the level reported to the FCC. This is because of a variety of
factors including its proximity to a base station antenna, phone design and
other factors. What is important to remember is that each phone meets
strict federal guidelines. Variations in SARs do not represent a variation in
safety.
All phones must meet the federal standard, which incorporates a
substantial margin of safety. As stated above, variations in SAR values
between different model phones do not mean variations in safety. SAR
values at or below the federal standard of 1.6 W/kg are considered safe for
use by the public.
The highest reported SAR values of the T669Y are:
GSM850: Head: 0.20 W/Kg; Body-worn: 0.50 W/kg
GSM1900: Head: 0.38 W/Kg; Body-worn: 0.58 W/kg
UMTS IV: Head: 0.62 W/kg; Body-worn: 0.42 W/kg
