Safety Information
Important: Read this information before
using your mobile phone.
As this mobile phone is equipped with a fixed
(non-retractable) antenna, some paragraphs in
the below text may not be applicable.
Antenna care
Use only the supplied or an approved
replacement antenna. Unauthorized antennas,
modifications, or attachments could damage
the phone and may violate FCC regulations.
Phone operation
Normal position
Hold the phone as you would any other
telephone with the antenna pointed up and
over your shoulder.
Tips on efficient operation
For your phone to operate most efficiently:
• Extend your antenna fully
(if applicable).
• Do not touch the antenna unnecessarily
when the phone is in use. Contact with the
antenna affects call quality and may cause
the phone to operate at a higher power
level than otherwise needed.
Driving
Laws pertaining to the use of mobile phones
while driving vary significantly from
state-to-state and sometimes even from
locality-to-locality within states. For example,
some areas may allow persons to use their
mobile phones only if they employ a
hands-free device, and some areas may
prohibit the use of mobile phones entirely.
Accordingly, Siemens recommends that
persons check the laws for the areas in which
they drive or will be driving. For areas where
the use of mobile
phones while driving is permitted, Siemens
encourages persons to use their phones
responsibly and to employ hands-free devices.
Also, if using your phone while driving,
please:
• Give full attention to driving – driving
safely is your first responsibility;
• Use hands-free operation, if available;
• Pull off the road and park before making or
answering a call, if driving conditions so
require.
For vehicles equipped with Air Bags
An air bag inflates with great force. DO NOT
place objects, including either installed or
portable wireless equipment, in the area over
the air bag or in the air bag deployment area.
If in-vehicle wireless equipment is improperly
installed and the air bag inflates, serious
injury could result.
Electronic devices
Most modern electronic equipment is shielded
from radiofrequency (RF) signals. However,
certain electronic equipment may not be
shielded against the RF signals from your
wireless phone.
Pacemakers
The Health Industry Manufacturer’s
Association recommends that a minimum
separation of six inches (6”) be maintained
between a handheld wireless phone and a
pacemaker to avoid potential interference
with the pacemaker. These recommendations
are consistent with the independent research
by and recommendations of Wireless
Technology Research.
Safety Information
Persons with pacemakers:
Vehicles
• should ALWAYS keep the phone more
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

than six inches from their pacemaker when
the phone is turned ON;
• should not carry the phone in a breast
pocket;
• should use the ear opposite the pacemaker
to minimize the potential for interference;
• should turn the phone OFF immediately if
there is any reason to suspect that
interference is taking place.
Posted Facilities
Turn your phone OFF in any facility where
posted notices so require.
Hearing Aids
Blasting areas
Some digital wireless phones may interfere
with some hearing aids. In the event of such
interference, you may want to consult your
service provider or your hearing aid
manufacturer to discuss alternatives.
To avoid interfering with blasting operations,
turn your phone OFF when in a “blasting
area” or in areas posted: “Turn off two-way
radio.” Obey all signs and instructions.
Other Medical Devices
Turn 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.
If you use any other personal medical devices,
consult the manufacturers of your devices to
determine if they are adequately shielded
from external RF energy. Your physician may
be able to assist you in obtaining this
information.
Turn 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.
Potentially explosive atmospheres
Safety Information
Areas with a potentially explosive atmosphere
are often but not always clearly marked. They
include: fueling areas such as gasoline
stations; below deck on boats; fuel or
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
Your wireless phone can be used to make
emergency calls. Check to ensure you have a
strong enough signal and that the battery has
enough available charge.
You can enter the local emergency number
such as 911 and then press the (talk) key.

1. Getting Started
1.1 Welcome
Congratulations on purchasing a Siemens SX56 Wireless PDA Phone. The integrated wireless voice and data capabilities mean
that as well as keeping your important PIM information up-to-date and close at hand, you can make calls, send and receive email,
and look up valuable information from the Internet or your company’s network anytime, anywhere. Also, with Microsoft“
ActiveSync“, the power of your device is increased by allowing you to synchronize the information on your PC with your device.
Picture yourself in the following situations:
x
x
x
While walking with a colleague, your SX56 rings. You look at the caller ID and see it’s your manager who is calling. She
asks if you two are free this afternoon for an emergency meeting. While your colleague fumbles through his paper organizer,
you press a button on your device and instantly see a list of today’s appointments and meetings. You are quickly able to tell
your manager your available times, and make a note of the new meeting while on the call. You hang up; send e-mail with a
schedule request for the three of you at the desired location.
You are meeting your friends tonight for dinner and a movie. You download the latest movie information from the Internet to
your PC and then synchronize it with your device. At dinner, you pull out your SX56 and review your movie options with
your friends.
A Calendar reminder alerts you that it is time to catch the bus. You grab your Siemens SX56 Wireless PDA Phone and catch
the bus just in time. Because ActiveSync keeps the information on your device up-to-date, you leisurely review your task list,
make notes about the new books and CDs you want to buy, and read and respond to e-mail messages. When you get back to
the office, ActiveSync transfers any task changes you made, your notes, and your e-mail message responses to your PC.

2.5 Battery Information and Life
Your SX56 contains a rechargeable Lithium-ion polymer battery, which is housed permanently in your device. Under no
circumstances should you attempt to open the device to inspect the battery. Only an authorized service provider should service
the battery.
While you are using the Siemens SX56 Wireless PDA Phone the amount of power consumed depends on whether you are talking
on the phone, using the PDA functions or the device is on standby. If you use only the phone, you can expect a talk time of at least
3 hours on one charge. If you use only the PDA functions, you can expect at least 15 hours of PDA usage on one charge. If your
device is on standby, you can expect at least 150 hours on one charge.

PACK. REPLACE ONLY WITH THE BATTERY PACK DESIGNATED FOR THIS
PRODUCT. DISPOSE OF BATTERIES PROPERLY.
2.5.1 Recharging the Battery
It is extremely important to keep your battery charged, since all data on the device is maintained only if the battery has some
charge remaining. If the battery becomes completely drained, all data on the device above will be erased, and only the programs
installed when you purchased the device will remain. Backing up the data on your device regularly will reduce the negative
effects of losing all battery power. To learn how to back up the data on your device, please refer to Section 3.2.
You can recharge your device in the following ways:
13
How to Charge Using the Cradle
x Place your SX56 in the cradle and
connect the cradle to an external power
source. A complete charging cycle will
required less than 3 hours. The
notification LED will show a steady
green light when the battery is fully
charged.

2.5.2 When Your Battery Is Low
If the battery gets very low, your SX56 displays a warning message that directs you to charge the battery. If this occurs, save data
in any applications that are presently open, synchronize your device to your PC, and turn off your device. Then connect your
device to an external power source to begin recharging the battery.
A portion of your battery is saved as backup. If the battery becomes completely drained, the backup portion of your battery will
14
protect your data for about 72 hours, even though the device will not switch on without being recharged. You must recharge your
device within this time period to avoid losing your data completely.
3. Understanding Your Device
3.1 How to Reset the Device and Clear Its Memory
There are two options available to you if you need to reset your device. We recommend, in either case, the complete backup of all
data on your device to your PC by using ActiveSync or to a Secure Digital (SD) memory expansion card. More information
about the use of SD cards can be found in the user manual on your companion product CD.
A soft reset is similar to pressing CTRL+ATL+DEL on your PC – some data in open programs may be lost, but most memory is
left intact. A soft reset can be performed by gently pressing the button referenced with the number 1 in Section 2.3 “Bottom Panel
Feature Map” above.
A hard reset erases all memory on the device. Follow the picture instructions below to perform a hard reset.
3.1.1 To perform a soft reset
If your SX56 responds slowly, stops responding, or freezes, try a soft reset. A soft reset causes the device to restart and re-adjust
memory allocation. Unsaved data in open windows may be lost.
x
Use the stylus to press and hold the Reset button. (For details on finding soft reset, see, “Chapter 2, Bottom Edge
Features.”)
3.1.2 To perform a full reset
A full device reset clears memory, deletes all data and restores your device to its default settings.
Programs installed at the factory remain, while data you have created and programs you have
installed are erased.

additional information. Alternatively, you can use your stylus to make an insert.
After you have made an insert, you can use any of the input methods described above to add additional text at the insertion point.
3.10 Writing on the Screen
In any program that accepts writing, such as the Notes program, and in the Notes tab in Calendar, Contacts, and Tasks, you can
use your stylus to write directly on the screen. Write as if you are writing on paper. You can edit and format what you have written
26
and convert the information to text at a later time.
3.10.1 To write on the screen:
x
Tap the Pen button to switch to writing mode. This action displays lines on
the screen to help you write.
Some programs that accept writing may not have the Pen button. See the documentation for that
program to find out how to switch to writing mode.

If you want to edit or format writing, you must select it first.
1.
Tap and hold the stylus next to the text you want to select until the insertion
point appears.
2.
Without lifting, drag the stylus across the text you want to select.
If you accidentally write on the screen, tap Tools, then Undo and try again. You

up menu, or tap the command on the Edit menu.
27
3.10.3 To convert writing to text:
1.
Tap Tools and then Recognize.
2.
If you want to convert only certain words, select them
before tapping Recognize on the Tools menu (or tap and

up menu). If a word is not recognized, it is left as writing.
3.
If the conversion is incorrect, you can select different
words from a list of alternates or return to the original
writing. To do so, tap and hold the incorrect word (tap one
word at a time). On the pop up menu, tap Alternates. A
menu with a list of alternate words appears. Tap the word
you want to use, or tap the writing at the top of the menu to

3.10.4 Tips for getting good
recognition:
1.
Write neatly.
2.
Write on the lines and draw descanters below the line.
Write the cross of the “t” and apostrophes below the top
line so that they are not confused with the word above.
Write periods and commas above the line.
3.
For better recognition, try increasing the zoom level to
300% using the Tools menu.
4.
Write the letters of a word closely and leave big gaps
between words so that the device can easily tell where
words begin and end.
5.
Hyphenated words, foreign words that use special
characters such as accents, and some punctuation cannot
be converted.
6.
If you add writing to a word to change it (such as changing
a “3” to an “8”) after you attempt to recognize the word,
the writing you add will not be included if you attempt to
recognize the writing again.
3.11 Drawing on the Screen
You can draw on the screen in the same way that you write on the screen. The difference between writing and drawing on the
screen is how you select items and how they can be edited. For example, selected drawings can be resized, while writing cannot.
28
3.11.1 To create a drawing:
x
Cross three ruled lines on your first stroke. A
drawing box appears. Subsequent strokes that are
within the drawing box or that touch the drawing
box become part of the drawing. Drawings that do

writing.
3.11.2 To select a drawing:
If you want to edit or format a drawing, you must select it
first.
x
Tap and hold the stylus on the drawing until the
selection handle appears. To select multiple drawings,
de-select the Pen button and then drag to select the
drawings you want.
x
You can cut, copy, and paste selected drawings by
tapping and holding the selected drawing and then
tapping an editing command on the pop up menu, or by
tapping the command on the Edit menu. To resize a
drawing, make sure the Pen button is not selected, and

x
Messages you receive are displayed in the message list.
By default, the most recently received messages are
displayed first in the list.
x
When you receive a message, tap it to open it. Unread
messages are displayed in bold.
When you connect to your e-mail server or synchronize with your PC, by default, you’ll receive messages from the last five days
and only the first 100 lines of each new message. The original messages remain on the e-mail server or your PC.
75
You can mark the messages that you want to retrieve in full during your next synchronization or e-mail server connection. In the
message list, tap and hold the message you want to retrieve. On the pop up menu, tap Mark for Download. The icons in the
Inbox message list give you a visual indication
of message status.
You specify your downloading preferences when you set up the service or select your synchronization options. You can change
them at any time:

can swap it by tapping Services then choose what service
you want.
If you are sending an SMS message and want to know if it
was received, tap Edit, Options, and select Request SMS
text message delivery notification before sending the

6.3.4 Managing Messages and Folders
By default, messages are displayed in one of five folders for each service you have created: 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 and then Options. On the Message
tab, select your options.
If you want to organize messages into additional folders, tap Tools, and then Manage Folders to create new folders. To move a
message to another folder, in the message list, tap and hold the message and then tap Move to on the pop up menu.
6.3.5 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, SMS, POP3, or IMAP4.
1.
If you use ActiveSync, e-mail messages in the Inbox folder in Outlook will automatically be synchronized with your device.
76
You can select to synchronize additional folders by designating them for ActiveSync. The folders you created and the
messages you moved 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 PC.
2.
If you use SMS, messages are stored in the Inbox folder of SMS category.
3.
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. This prevents you from having duplicate copies of a message, but it
also means that you will no longer have access to messages that you moved to folders created from anywhere except the
device.
4.
If you use IMAP4, the folders you created and the e-mail messages you moved 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 PC. This
synchronization of folders occurs whenever you connect to your mail server; create new folders, or rename/delete folders
when connected.
6.3.6 Transferring Items Using Infrared
Using infrared (IR), you can send and receive information, such as contacts and appointments, between two devices.
To send information:
1. Switch to the program where you created the item you want to send, and locate this item in the list.
2.
Align the IR ports of the two devices so that they are unobstructed and within a close range.
3.
Tap and hold the item, and tap Beam Item on the pop up menu.
You can also send items, but not folders, from File Explorer. Tap and hold the item
you want to send, and then tap Beam File on the pop up menu.
To receive information:
1. Align the IR ports of the two devices so that they are unobstructed and within a close range.
2.
Have the owner of the other device send the information to you. Your device will automatically receive it.
6.4
Terminal Services Client
Using the Terminal Services Client, you can log onto a Windows NT server type PC that is running Terminal Services software

you can synchronize information between your device and your PC, and customize your synchronization settings. Your first
synchronization process will automatically begin when you finish using the wizard.
After your first synchronization, take a look at Calendar, Contacts, and Tasks on your device. You’ll notice that information
you’ve stored in Microsoft Outlook on your PC has been copied to your device, and you didn’t have to type a word. Disconnect
your device from your PC and you’re ready to go!
Once you have set up ActiveSync and completed the first synchronization process, you can initiate synchronization from your
device. To switch to ActiveSync on your device, tap

9.10 Wireless Tools
Wireless Tools is the key to maintaining a
healthy connection between your device, the
Internet, your e-mail, and Office Online.
Wireless Tools allows you to optimize your
browser settings to meet your browsing needs,
and allows you to easily connect to the Internet
and your favorite sites.
From the Wireless Tools page, you can access:
x
Optimization Settings — The tools
needed to maintain a speedy
connection
x
Pocket Guide — Your gateway to the
Internet
9.10.1 Optimization Settings
Optimization Settings allows you to select the
efficiency settings on your device, giving you
more control over page-loading times and
performance speeds.
Optimizing your device allows you to download
Web pages and images more quickly. It can also
by used to verify the status of the optimization
feature, and enable and disable it at your
discretion.
The Optimization feature also allows you to
activate additional tools including the content
blocking, image quality settings, and set various
protocols used to access your POP3/IMAP4
e-mail accounts.
9.10.2 Enabling and Disabling the Optimization Feature
Although the Optimization feature is enabled by default, you can disable it to view clearer images and download all types of
content. There are several status settings with which you should be familiar.
98
9.10.3 Optimization Status Settings
x

x
x
x
High-image quality provides you with crisp, clear images when browsing the Internet, although screen-loading times may
be lengthy. Performance may be slower than normal.
Medium-image quality loads generally clear images. Screen-loading times may take some time. Performance will be
normal. This is the default setting.
Low-image quality reduces image clarity, so images are less vibrant and detailed. Because there is less detail to load, you’ll
see shorter screen-loading times and improved performance.
To set the Image Quality feature:
1. Tap Wireless Tools to view the Optimization screen.
2. Select an image-quality type. The default setting is medium.
3. Tap OK in the upper-right corner of the screen to return to the Wireless Tools screen.

99
9.10.6 Blocking Content
Blocking particular types of Internet content is
useful when trying to maximize the performance
of your device while browsing the Internet.
Animation, applets, audio, and video heavily tax
the speed at which your device can download
information. Preventing these types of content
from loading can decrease screen-loading times
and improve overall performance.
The four blocking features are:
x
Animation — Blocks animated files,
such as GIF files
x
Applets — Blocks applets, such as
Java applets
x
Audio — Blocks audio files, such a
WAV files
x
Video — Blocks video content, such
as AVI or MPEG files

display).
3. Tap OK in the upper-right corner of the screen to save your settings and return to the Optimization screen.
9.10.7 Connecting to POP3 and IMAP4 Mail
Configuring your personal e-mail protocols for
use with Office Online enables you to optimize
e-mail sent and received using your personal
e-mail client program, such as Yahoo or Outlook.
A protocol is a set of rules or standards that
enable computers to connect with each other to
exchange information.
Configuring your personal e-mail protocols can
be accomplished by inputting the name of the
POP3 (post office protocol) server on which your
personal e-mail resides, and indicating whether
your personal e-mail service provider uses simple
mail transfer protocol (SMTP) to send and
retrieve e-mail messages, and network news
transfer protocol (NNTP) to post, distribute, and
retrieve newsgroup messages.
Although e-mail inputs are stored here in the
Optimization Settings > E-mail tab, setting up
your personal mail accounts is done through your
Inbox by tapping Start > Inbox > Services >
New Service.
100
For each of the accounts you wish to optimize, you will need to include the port number for that protocol. Your message traffic
will be forwarded and accelerated based on the settings you provide.
The default values for port fields are already provided based on the following industry standards:
x POP3/IMAP4 port: 110
x SMTP port: 25
x NNTP port: 119
9.10.8 Maintaining Your GPRS Connection
The Office Online software is automatically
configured to search for a GPRS connection each
time you connect to the Internet. If you are
having trouble establishing a connection, verify
that the software is still configured to look for
GPRS.
To verify your GPRS connection:
1. Tap Optimization Settings >
Advanced > Connection tab.
2.
Select the GPRS Connection check
box.
3.
Click OK in the upper-right corner to
set your preference and save your
changes.

Appendix A: Letter Recognizer
Using Letter Recognizer, you can write characters directly on your SX56 screen with your stylus, just as you would on a piece of
paper. The characters you write are translated into typed text. Use Letter Recognizer anywhere you want to enter text. For
example, you may want to write a note or to fill in fields in a dialog box.
x
x
x
The default writing mode for Letter Recognizer
is lowercase (Jot-compatible) mode. In this
mode, you write characters in lowercase. The
chart at the end of this appendix contains
examples of how to write characters in lowercase
mode. You can also choose to write in uppercase
(Graffiti-compatible) mode. In this mode, you
write characters in uppercase. If you prefer to
write in uppercase mode, tap Uppercase Mode
in Options on the input method menu. Whether a
letter appears in uppercase or lowercase when it
is converted to typed text depends on where in
the input panel you write it, not on the mode you
have selected.
The Letter Recognizer input panel is divided into
three writing areas. Letters written in the left area
(labeled ABC) creates uppercase letters, and
letters written in the middle area (labeled abc)
creates lowercase letters. Use the right area
(labeled 123) for writing numbers, symbols,
special characters, and punctuation.
The chart is a partial display of the characters you
can write while in lowercase mode (the dot on
each character is the starting point for writing).
Remember that even though you write a letter in
its lowercase form, the case of the text that is
displayed depends on where you write the letter.
For example, if you write a lowercase “a” in the
ABC area, an uppercase “A” is displayed on the
screen.
For more information on using Letter Recognizer and for demos of all characters, tap
103
on the Letter Recognizer input panel.
Appendix B: Troubleshooting
Resetting the Device and Clearing Its Memory
You can perform a soft reset or a full reset, depending on the situation: a full reset, in the sense that you will lose all data and any
software you have installed yourself, is similar to reinstalling your OS on your PC; a soft reset is similar to restarting your
desktop.
If your SX56 responds slowly, stops responding or freezes, try a soft reset. A soft reset causes the SX56 to restart and re-adjust
memory allocation. Unsaved data in open windows may be lost.
To perform a soft reset:
x
Use the stylus to press and hold the Reset button for about two seconds. (For details on finding soft reset, see, “Chapter
2, Bottom Edge Features.”)
To perform a full reset:
Warning: Clearing memory deletes all data and restores the SX56 to its default settings. Programs installed at the factory remain,
while data you have created and programs you have installed are erased.
1.
Unscrew the stylus and use the smaller part of the top-half.
2.
Press the battery switch once to turn it off, and then once more to
turn it back on.
Use ActiveSync to keep a backup of your personal data on your device so that if you need to clear memory,
104
you can restore the data back to your device For more information, see ActiveSync Help.
If the Battery Runs Low
When the battery is low, you will see a battery icon (
- main battery low,
- main battery very low) in the status bar of the
screen and a pop up screen to tell you to recharge the battery as soon as possible. The battery is split into two parts: main battery
and backup battery. When the main battery is discharged your device will power off. However, the backup battery will preserve
your data for 72 hrs. If the backup battery is discharged completely, you run the risk of losing the data that has been synchronized
with ActiveSync and all applications that you have installed on your SX56.
Immediately Plug Into an External Power Source
Use the AC adapter to plug your SX56 into external power whenever possible, especially when:
x Establishing a remote connection.

SAR (Specific Absorption Rate)
THE SIEMENS SX56 WIRELESS PDA
PHONE MEETS THE GOVERNMENT'S
REQUIREMENTS FOR EXPOSURE TO
RADIATION WAVES.
Your wireless Siemens SX56 wireless PDA
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 using
standard operating positions specified 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
*
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.
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 (for example, at the ear and
worn on the body) as required by the FCC for
each model. The highest SAR value for this
Siemens SX56 wireless PDA phone when
tested for use at the ear is 1.13 W/kg, and
when worn on the body, as described in this
user guide, is 0.578 W/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 Siemens SX56 wireless
PDA phone with all reported SAR levels
evaluated as in compliance with the FCC RF
emission guidelines. SAR information on this
Siemens SX56 wireless PDA 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 NM8SN.
SAR (Specific Absorption Rate)
For body worn operation, to maintain
compliance with FCC RF exposure guidelines,
use only Siemens approved accessories.
When carrying the phone while
it is on, use the specific Siemens belt clip that
has been tested for compliance.
Use of non-Siemens-approved accessories
may violate FCC RF exposure guidelines and
should be avoided.

U.S. FDA
The U.S. Food and
Drug Administration's
(FDA) Center for
Devices and Radiological Health Consumer
Update on Mobile Phones
FDA has been receiving inquiries about the
safety of mobile phones, including cellular
phones and PCS phones. The following
summarizes what is known — and what
remains unknown — about whether these
products can pose a hazard to health, and what
can be done to minimize any potential risk.
This information may be used to respond
to questions.
Why the concern?
Mobile phones emit low levels of radio
frequency energy (i.e., radio frequency
radiation) in the microwave range while being
used. They also emit very low levels of radio
frequency energy (RF), considered
non-significant, when in the stand-by mode. It
is well known that high levels of RF can
produce biological damage through heating
effects (this is how your microwave oven is
able to cook food). However, it is not known
whether, to what extent, or through what
mechanism, lower levels of RF might cause
adverse health effects as well. Although some
research has been done to address these
questions, no clear picture of the biological
effects of this type of radiation has emerged to
date. Thus, the available science does not
allow us to conclude that mobile phones are
absolutely safe, or that they are unsafe.
However, the available scientific evidence
does not demonstrate adverse health effects
associated with the use of mobile phones.
What kinds of phones are in question?
Questions have been raised about hand-held
mobile phones, the kind that have a built-in
antenna that is positioned close to the user's
head during normal telephone conversation.
These types of mobile phones are of concern
because of the short distance between the
phone's antenna — the primary source of the
RF — and the person's head. The exposure to
RF from mobile phones in which the antenna
is located at greater distances from the user
(on the outside of a car, for example) is
drastically lower than that from hand-held
phones, because a person's RF exposure
decreases rapidly with distance from the
source. The safety of so-called “cordless
phones,” which have a base unit connected to
the telephone wiring in a house and which
operate at far lower power levels and
frequencies, has not been questioned.
How much evidence is there that
hand-held mobile phones might be
harmful?
Briefly, there is not enough evidence to know
for sure, either way; however, research efforts
are on-going. The existing scientific evidence
is conflicting and many of the studies that
have been done to date have suffered from
flaws in their research methods. Animal
experiments investigating the effects of RF
exposures characteristic of mobile phones
have yielded conflicting results. A few animal
studies, however, have suggested that low
levels of RF could accelerate the development
of cancer in laboratory animals. In one study,
mice genetically altered to be predisposed to
developing one type of cancer developed
more than twice as many such
U.S. FDA
cancers when they were exposed to RF energy
compared to controls. There is much
uncertainty among scientists about whether
results obtained from animal studies apply to
the use of mobile phones. First, it is uncertain
how to apply the results obtained in rats and
mice to humans. Second, many of the studies
showed increased tumor development used
animals that had already been treated with
cancer-causing chemicals, and other studies
exposed the animals to the RF virtually
continuously — up to 22 hours per day.
For the past five years in the United States, the
mobile phone industry has supported research
into the safety of mobile phones. This
research has resulted in two findings in
particular that merit additional study:
1. In a hospital-based, case-control study,
researchers looked for an association between
mobile phone use and either glioma (a type of
brain cancer) or acoustic neuroma (a benign
tumor of the nerve sheath). No statistically
significant association was found between
mobile phone use and acoustic neuroma.
There was also no association between mobile
phone use and gliomas when all types of
gliomas were considered together. It should
be noted that the average length of mobile
phone exposure in this study was less than
three years.
When 20 types of glioma were considered
separately, however, an association was found
between mobile phone use and one rare type
of glioma, neuroepithelliomatous tumors. It is
possible with multiple comparisons of the
same sample that this association occurred by
chance. Moreover, the risk did not increase
with how often the mobile phone was used, or
the length of the calls. In fact, the risk actually
decreased with
cumulative hours of mobile phone use. Most
cancer causing agents increase risk with
increased exposure. An ongoing study of
brain cancers by the National Cancer Institute
is expected to bear on the accuracy and
repeatability of these results.1
2. Researchers conducted a large battery of
laboratory tests to assess the effects of
exposure to mobile phone RF on genetic
material. These included tests for several
kinds of abnormalities, including mutations,
chromosomal aberrations, DNA strand breaks,
and structural changes in the genetic material
of blood cells called lymphocytes. None of
the tests showed any effect of the RF except
for the micronucleus assay, which detects
structural effects on the genetic material. The
cells in this assay showed changes after
exposure to simulated cell phone radiation,
but only after 24 hours of exposure. It is
possible that exposing the test cells to
radiation for this long resulted in heating.
Since this assay is known to be sensitive to
heating, heat alone could have caused the
abnormalities to occur. The data already in the
literature on the response of the micronucleus
assay to RF are conflicting. Thus follow-up
research is necessary. 2
FDA is currently working with government,
industry, and academic groups to ensure the
proper follow-up to these industry-funded
research findings. Collaboration with the
Cellular Telecommunications Industry
Association (CTIA) in particular is expected
to lead to FDA providing research
recommendations and scientific oversight of
new CTIA-funded research based on such
recommendations.
Two other studies of interest have been
reported recently in the literature:
U.S. FDA
• Two groups of 18 people were exposed to
simulated mobile phone signals under
laboratory conditions while they
performed cognitive function tests. There
were no changes in the subjects' ability to
recall words, numbers, or pictures, or in
their spatial memory, but they were able to
make choices more quickly in one visual
test when they were exposed to simulated
mobile phone signals. This was the only
change noted among more than 20
variables compared.3
• In a study of 209 brain tumor cases and
425 matched controls, there was no
increased risk of brain tumors associated
with mobile phone use. When tumors did
exist in certain locations, however, they
were more likely to be on the side of the
head where the mobile phone was used.
Because this occurred in only a small
number of cases, the increased likelihood
was too small to be statistically
significant.4
In summary, we do not have enough
information at this point to assure the public
that there are, or are not, any low incident
health problems associated with use of mobile
phones. FDA continues to work with all
parties, including other federal agencies and
industry, to assure that research is undertaken
to provide the necessary answers to the
outstanding questions about the safety of
mobile phones.
What is known about cases of human
cancer that have been reported in users of
hand-held mobile phones?
Some people who have used mobile phones
have been diagnosed with brain cancer. But it
is important to understand that this type of
cancer also occurs among people who have
not used mobile phones. In fact, brain cancer
occurs in the U.S. population at a rate of about
6 new cases per 100,000 people each year. At
that rate, assuming 80 million users of mobile
phones (a number increasing at a rate of about
1 million per month), about 4800 cases of
brain cancer would be expected each year
among those 80 million people, whether or
not they used their phones. Thus it is not
possible to tell whether any individual's
cancer arose because of the phone, or whether
it would have happened anyway. A key
question is whether the risk of getting a
particular form of cancer is greater among
people who use mobile phones than among
the rest of the population. One way to answer
that question is to compare the usage of
mobile phones among people with brain
cancer with the use of mobile phones among
appropriately matched people without brain
cancer. This is called a case-control study.
The current case-control study of brain
cancers by the National Cancer Institute, as
well as the follow-up research to be sponsored
by industry, will begin to generate this type of
information.
What is FDA's role concerning the safety
of mobile phones?
Under the law, FDA does not review the
safety of radiation emitting consumer
products such as mobile phones before
marketing, as it does with new drugs or
medical devices. However, the agency has
authority to take action if mobile phones are
shown to emit radiation at a level that is
hazardous to the user. In such a case, FDA
could require the manufacturers of mobile
phones to notify users of the health hazard and
to repair, replace or recall the phones so that
the hazard no longer exists.
U.S. FDA
Although the existing scientific data do not
justify FDA regulatory actions at this time,
FDA has urged the mobile phone industry to
take a number of steps to assure public safety.
The agency has recommended that the
industry:
• Support needed research into possible
biological effects of RF of the type emitted
by mobile phones;
• Design mobile phones in a way that
minimizes any RF exposure to the user that
is not necessary for device function; and
• Cooperate in providing mobile phone users
with the best possible information on what
is known about possible effects of mobile
phone use on human health.
At the same time, FDA belongs to an
interagency working group of the federal
agencies that have responsibility for different
aspects of mobile phone safety to ensure a
coordinated effort at the federal level. These
agencies are:
• National Institute for Occupational Safety
and Health
• Environmental Protection Agency
• Federal Communications Commission
• Occupational Health and Safety
Administration
• National Telecommunications and
Information Administration
The National Institutes of Health also
participates in this group.
In the absence of conclusive information
about any possible risk, what can
concerned individuals do?
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 people are
concerned about avoiding even potential risks,
there are simple steps they can take to do so.
For example, time is a key factor in how much
exposure a person receives. Those persons
who spend long periods of time on their
hand-held mobile phones could consider
holding lengthy conversations on
conventional phones and reserving the
hand-held models for shorter conversations or
for situations when other types of phones are
not available.
People who must conduct extended
conversations in their cars every day could
switch to a type of mobile phone that places
more distance between their bodies and the
source of the RF, since the exposure level
drops off dramatically with distance. For
example, they could switch to:
• a mobile phone in which the antenna is
located outside the vehicle,
• a hand-held phone with a built-in antenna
connected to a different antenna mounted
on the outside of the car or built into a
separate package, or
• a headset with a remote antenna to a
mobile phone carried at the waist.

Ten Driving Safety Tips
Your Siemens wireless phone
gives you the power 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.
2.
3.
Get to know your phone and its features
such as speed dial and redial. Carefully
read your instruction manual and learn to
take advantage of valuable features most
phones offer including, automatic redial
and memory dial — most phones can
store up to 99 numbers in memory dial.
Also, work to memorize the phone
keypad so you can use the speed dial
function without taking your attention off
the road.
When available, use a hands-free device.
A number of hands-free wireless phone
accessories are readily available today.
Whether you choose an installed
mounted device for your phone or a
speaker phone accessory, take advantage
of these devices if they are available to
you.
Position your phone within easy reach.
Make sure you place your wireless phone
within easy reach and where you can grab
it 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.
4.
Suspend conversations during hazardous
driving conditions or situations. Let the
person you are speaking to know you are
driving; if necessary, suspend the call in
heavy traffic or hazardous weather
conditions. Rain, sleet, snow and ice can
be hazardous, but so is heavy traffic. As a
driver, your first responsibility is to pay
attention to the road.
5.
Do not take notes or look up phone
numbers while driving. If you are reading
an address book or business card while
driving a car, or writing a “to do” list,
then you are not watching where you are
going. It’s common sense. Don’t get
caught in a dangerous situation because
you are reading or writing and not paying
attention to the road or nearby vehicles.
6.
Dial sensibly and assess the traffic. If
possible, place calls when you are not
moving or before pulling into traffic. Try
to plan your calls before you begin your
trip, or attempt to coincide your calls with
times you may be stopped
at a stop sign, red light or otherwise
stationary. But if you need to dial while
driving, follow this simple tip — 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.
Stressful or emotional conversations and
driving do not mix — they are distracting
and even dangerous when you are behind
the wheel. Make people you are talking
with aware you are driving and if
necessary, suspend phone conversations
that have the potential to divert your
attention from the road.
Ten Driving Safety Tips
8.
9.
Use your phone to call for help. Your
wireless phone is one of the greatest tools
you can own to protect yourself and your
family in dangerous situations — with
your phone at your side, help is only three
numbers away. Dial 9-1-1 in the case of
fire, traffic accident, road hazard, or
medical emergency. Remember, it is a
free call on your wireless phone.
Use your phone to help others in
emergencies. Your wireless phone
provides you a perfect opportunity to be a
“good Samaritan” in your community. If
you see an auto accident, crime in
progress or other serious emergencies
where lives are in danger, call 9-1-1, as
you would want others to do for you.
10. Call roadside assistance or a special
wireless non-emergency assistance
number when necessary. Certain
situations you encounter while driving
may require attention, but are not urgent
enough to merit a call to 9-1-1. But you
can still use your wireless phone to lend a
hand. 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 numbers.
“The wireless industry reminds you to use
your phone safely when driving.”
