A form-fitting, shock-absorbing case helps to protect the phone from more
than just the occasional scratch or nick. A case can protect against shock
from drops, impacts or neglect.
The Display
The touchscreen is a very sensitive, durable but also carefully engineered
interactive surface. Scratches, excessive pressure and impacts damage the
screen’s ability to sense contact and to display.
Do not use excessive force when touching the screen and do not subject it
to impacts.
Avoid Drops and Shocks
This smartphone is a highly complex, precision-made electronic device.
Impacts, drops and shocks can damage or even destroy the phone. The
touchscreen is especially vulnerable to impacts.
Avoid Water
Water is devastating to electronic devices. Avoid exposure to water and high
humidity. If the phone is immersed in water, ensure that it is turned off. Do
not reactivate the phone until it is completely dry. The best idea is to have it
serviced.
160 Appendix
Avoid Heat
Do not leave the smartphone in very hot or sunny areas. The smartphone
can withstand a wide temperature range, but excessive amounts of time
sitting on the dashboard of a car in the sunlight, on a radiator or in a very
hot environment can damage the electronic and physical components.
Avoid Cold
Cold temperatures drain the battery more quickly than moderate or warm
temperatures. To avoid stressing the battery’s energy-retention ability and
shortening its life, avoid leaving the phone in sub-zero temperatures for
prolonged periods of time.
Avoid Dust
Particulate matter like dust tends to corrupt and damage most electronic
devices. Keep the phone away from dust and fine particles.
Cleaning
Keep the phone clean to avoid organic substance buildup or residues. To
clean the touchscreen, use a damp, soft cloth.
Do not use any abrasive cleaners, and do not pour water directly onto
the phone. The touchscreen and lens surfaces may be scratched. Avoid
contacting them with any abrasive substance.
Many cleaning products damage plastic, metal and glass components.
These cleaners can include benzine, paint thinners or alcohol-based
compounds. Be careful when choosing a cleaning product for use with this
smartphone.
Avoid Electric Shocks
Do not subject the smartphone to electrical shocks or high levels of random
static electricity. As an electrical device, this smartphone may be damaged
by sudden surges in electrical power from either charging or from the
environment.
If the phone suffers from electrical damage, it may not be reparable.
Appendix 161
Avoid Strong Electromagnetic Fields
Devices with strong electromagnetic fields or areas with strong natural
electromagnetism may interfere with the phone’s ability to connect to
networks and may also interfere with the phone’s regular operation.
The Battery
Do not subject the battery to abuse, pressure, shocks, moisture or fire.
The battery is a chemical power storage device. It also has a significant
electronic component. If it is shorted, it can cause fires. If pierced, its
chemical components may cause injury.
Charge Indoors
Be cautious when charging the phone outdoors. If left for a prolonged
period outdoors, the phone may suffer from changes in humidity, from
inclement weather or from unsanitary conditions.
Chargers
Do not use chargers and charging cables meant for other devices. Doing this
could damage the smartphone and void the warranty.
Connectors
The connector is designed to fit snugly into the socket in the phone. Do not
exert pressure or torsion on the connector. This connection is vital for the
use of the phone, and if it is damaged, the phone may not be chargeable
and it may be impossible to transfer data to and from a computer.
Inserting and Removing Cards
This device is precision-designed to be compact and versatile. As a result,
all of its moving parts are designed to take up as little space as possible. Do
not use force to remove or insert microSD card into the phone, as this can
damage both the card and the card socket.
162 Appendix
Do Not Disassemble
Do not take this smartphone apart. While it may be possible to reassemble
it, the parts and components of this smartphone are very delicate and are
encased in the protective shell to keep them safe. Disassembling the phone
can easily damage the phone’s internal components.
Only Use Safe Software
Customizing the phone is fun and can be very useful. However, some
applications and procedures designed to alter the phone’s operating system
or bypass the phone’s security measures can damage the phone. At the very
least, data can be rendered irretrievable.
Avoid using dangerous procedures or installing applications from unverified
sources.
Backup Data
Back up contacts, media files and email messages regularly, or keep them on
a remote service, such as Google. If the phone is reset, is lost, or is stolen, all
of the data and apps on the smartphone are lost. Backups help restore data
which would otherwise be irretrievable.

Safety Information for Wireless Handheld
Phones
Read this information before using your handheld portable mobile
telephone.
Exposure to Radio Frequency Signals
Your wireless handheld portable telephone is a low power radio transmitter
and receiver. When it is ON, it receives and also sends out radio frequency
(RF) signals. In August 1996, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)
adopted RF exposure guidelines with safety levels for handheld wireless
phones. Those guidelines are consistent with the safety standards previously
set by both U.S. and international standards bodies:
* ANSI C951 (1992)
** NCRP Report 86 (1986)
*** ICNIRP (1996)
Those standards were based on comprehensive and periodic evaluations of
the relevant scientific literature. For example, over 120 scientists, engineers,
and physicians from universities, government health agencies, and industry
reviewed the available body of research to develop the ANSI Standard
(C951).
The design of your phone complies with the FCC guidelines (and those
standards).
* American National Standards Institute.
** National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements.
*** International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection.
168 Appendix
Antenna Safety
Use only the supplied or an approved replacement antenna. Unauthorized
antennas, modifications, or attachments could impair call quality, damage
the phone, or result in violation of FCC regulations. Please contact your local
dealer for replacement antenna.
Do not use the phone with a damaged antenna. If a damaged antenna
comes into contact with the skin, a minor burn may result. Please contact
your local dealer for replacement antenna.
Driving Safety
Talking on the phone while driving is extremely dangerous and is illegal in
some states. Remember, safety comes first. Check the laws and regulations
on the use of phones in the areas where you drive. Always obey them. 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.

and possible property damage.
Appendix 169
Protect Your Hearing
Listening to a headset at high volumes can damage your
hearing. Use only the minimum volume setting necessary to
hear your conversation or music.
Electronic Devices
Your wireless handheld portable telephone is a low power radio transmitter
and receiver. When it is ON, it receives and also sends out radio frequency
(RF) signals. Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from RF energy.
However, certain electronic equipment may not be shielded against the
RF signals from your wireless phone. Therefore, use of your phone must be
restricted in certain situations.
Pacemakers
The Health Industry Manufacturers Association recommends that a
minimum separation of six (6”) inches 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. Persons
with pacemakers:
• ALWAYS keep the phone more than six inches from your pacemaker
when the phone is turned on.
• Do not carry the phone in a breast pocket.
• Use the ear opposite the pacemaker to minimize the potential for
interference.
• If you have any reason to suspect that interference is taking place, turn
your phone OFF immediately.
Hearing Aids
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 call the customer service line to discuss alternatives).
170 Appendix
Other Medical Devices
If you use any other personal medical device, consult the manufacturer
of your device 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 healthcare facilities when any
regulations posted in these areas instruct you to do so. Hospitals or
healthcare 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
Turn your phone OFF where posted notices so require.
Other Safety Guidelines
Aircraft
FCC regulations prohibit using your phone while in the air. Turn your
phone OFF before boarding an aircraft. Always request and obtain prior
consent and approval of an authorized airline representative before using
your phone aboard an aircraft. Always follow the instructions of the airline
representative whenever using your phone aboard an aircraft, to prevent
any possible interference with airborne electronic equipment.

172 Appendix
Safety Information for FCC RF Exposure
Warning! Read this information before using.
Cautions
In August 1996 the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) of the
United States with its action in Report and Order FCC 96-326 adopted
an updated safety standard for human exposure to radio frequency
electromagnetic energy emitted by FCC regulated transmitters. Those
guidelines are consistent with the safety standard previously set by both
U.S. and international standards bodies. The design of this phone complies
with the FCC guidelines and these international standards.
In the United States, 5180–5240 MHz band is restricted to indoor-use only.
Outdoor operation on this band is a strict violation of the FCC rules and
can cause harmful interference to commercial radar communications. For
outdoor operation, channels in 5180–5240 MHz band must not be used.
If using automatic channel assignment, add channels in this band to the
Automatic channel exclusion list.
Body-Worn Operation
This device was tested for typical body-worn operations with the back of the
phone kept 1 cm from the body. To maintain compliance requirements, use
only belt-clips, holsters or similar accessories that maintain a 1cm separation
distance between the user’s Body and the back of the phone, including the
antenna.
The use of belt-clips, holsters and similar accessories should not contain
metallic components in its assembly. The use of accessories that do
not satisfy these requirements may not comply with FCC RF exposure
requirements, and should be avoided.
Note
For more information about RF exposure, visit the FCC website at
http://www.fcc.gov .
Appendix 173
SAR Information
This model phone meets the government’s requirements for exposure to
radio waves.
Your wireless phone is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed and
manufactured not to exceed the emission limits for exposure to radio
frequency (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 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 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 (e.g., at the ear and worn on the
body) as required by the FCC for each model. The highest SAR value for
this model phone when tested for use at the ear is 1.03 W/Kg and when
worn on the body, as described in this user guide, is 0.76 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 SAR testing for Body-worn operation was performed with a belt clip that
provided a 1cm separation. The User’s Manual indicates that any holsters/
clips used with this device should contain no metallic components.
174 Appendix
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this model phone with
all reported SAR levels evaluated as in compliance with the FCC RF exposure
guidelines.
SAR information on this model phone is on file with the FCC and can be
found under the Display Grant section of http://www.fcc.gov/oet/ea after
searching on JYCPREMIAV.
Additional information on Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) can be found
on the Mobile Telecommunications Industry Association (CTIA) web-site at
http://www.ctia.org.
* 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.
Hearing Aid Compatibility (HAC) for
wireless telecommunication devices
PCD’s Commitment
PCD believes that all of our customers should be able to enjoy the benefits
of digital wireless technologies.
We are committed to providing a selection of compatible devices for our
customers who wear hearing aids.
This phone has a HAC rating of M4/T3.
What is Hearing Aid Compatibility?
The Federal Communications Commission has implemented rules and a
rating system designed to enable people who wear hearing aids to more
effectively use these wireless telecommunications devices. The standard
for compatibility of digital wireless phones with hearing aids is set forth
in American National Standard Institute (ANSI) standard C6319. There are
two sets of ANSI standards with ratings from one to four (four being the
Appendix 175
best rating): an “M” rating for reduced interference making it easier to hear
conversations on the phone when using the hearing aid microphone, and a
“T” rating that enables the phone to be used with hearing aids operating in
the telecoil mode thus reducing unwanted background noise.
How will I know which wireless phones are hearing aid compatible?
The Hearing Aid Compatibility rating is displayed on the wireless phone box.
A phone is considered Hearing Aid Compatible for acoustic coupling
(microphone mode) if it has an “M3” or “M4” rating. A digital wireless phone
is considered Hearing Aid Compatible for inductive coupling (telecoil mode)
if it has a “T3” or “T4” rating.
This phone has been tested and rated for use with hearing aids for some
of the wireless technologies that it uses. However, there may be some
newer wireless technologies used in this phone that have not been tested
yet for use with hearing aids. It is important to try the different features
of this phone thoroughly and in different locations, using your hearing
aid or cochlear implant, to determine if you hear any interfering noise.
Consult your service provider about its return and exchange policies and for
information on hearing aid compatibility.
How will I know if my hearing aid will work with a particular digital
wireless phone?
You’ll want to try a number of wireless phones so that you can decide which
works the best with your hearing aids. You may also want to talk with your
hearing aid professional about the extent to which your hearing aids are
immune to interference, if they have wireless phone shielding, and whether
your hearing aid has a HAC rating.

Teletypewriter (TTY) Devices
You can use an optional teletypewriter (TTY) device with your phone to
send and receive calls. You must plug the TTY device into the phone’s
headset connector and set the phone to operate in one of three TTY modes.
Note
A TTY is a communication device used by people who are hard of
hearing or have a speech impairment. TTY does not work from mobile
phone to mobile phone. Use a TSB-121 compliant cable (provided
by the TTY manufacturer) to connect the TTY device to your phone.
Your phone has a 3.5 mm jack. Set the phone to Medium volume level
for proper operation. If you experience a high number of incorrect
characters, adjust the volume as needed to minimize the error rate.
For optimal performance, your phone should be at least 12 inches (30
centimeters) from the TTY device. Placing the phone too close to the
TTY device may cause high error rates.
Appendix 177
FDA Consumer Updates
U.S. Food and Drug Administration Center for Devices and Radiological
Health Consumer Update on Wireless Phones
1. 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
radiofrequency energy (RF) in the microwave range while being used. They
also emit very low levels of RF when in the Home Screen. 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.
2. What is FDA’s role concerning the safety of wireless phones?
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 or medical devices. However, the agency has authority
to take action if wireless phones are shown to emit radiofrequency 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:
178 Appendix
• 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
• Environmental Protection Agency
• Federal Communications Commission
• Occupational Safety and Health Administration
• National Telecommunications and Information Administration
The National Institutes of Health participates in some inter-agency 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 subject of the safety questions discussed in this document.
3. 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 radiofrequency energy
(RF) because of the short distance between the phone and the user’s head.
Appendix 179
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 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 far below the FCC safety limits.
4. What are the results of the research done already?
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 radiofrequency 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
predisposed to develop cancer in the 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 neu-roma, 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 phone 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.
180 Appendix
5. 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 10 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 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.
6. 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 radiofrequency 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. FDA and the Mobile 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.
Appendix 181
7. How can I find out how much radiofrequency energy exposure I can get
by using my wireless phone?
All phones sold in the United States must comply with Federal
Communications Commission (FCC) guidelines that limit radiofrequency
energy (RF) exposures. FCC established these guidelines in consultation
with FDA and the other federal health and safety agencies. The FCC limit for
RF exposure from wireless telephones is set at a Specific Absorption Rate
(SAR) of 1.6 watts per kilogram (1.6 W/kg). The FCC limit is consistent with
the safety standards developed by the Institute of Electrical and Electronic
Engineering (IEEE) and the National Council on Radiation Protection and
Measurement. The exposure limit takes into consideration the body’s ability
to remove heat from the tissues that absorb energy from the wireless phone
and is set well below levels known to have effects. Manufacturers of wireless
phones must report the RF exposure level for each model of phone to the
FCC. The FCC website (http://www.fcc.gov/oet/rfsafety) gives directions for
locating the FCC identification number on your phone so you can find your
phone’s RF exposure level in the online listing.
8. What has FDA done to measure the radiofrequency energy coming
from wireless phones?
The Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) is developing a
technical standard for measuring the radiofrequency energy (RF) exposure
from wireless phones and other wireless handsets with the participation and
leadership of FDA scientists and engineers. The standard, “Recommended
Practice for Determining the Spatial-Peak Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) in
the Human Body Due to Wireless Communications Devices: Experimental
Techniques,” sets forth the first consistent test methodology for measuring
the rate at which RF is deposited in the heads of wireless phone users.
The test method uses a tissue-simulating model of the human head.
Standardized SAR test methodology is expected to greatly improve the
consistency of measurements made at different laboratories on the same
phone. SAR is the measurement of the amount of energy absorbed in tissue,
either by the whole body or a small part of the body. It is measured in
watts/kg (or milliwatts/g) of matter. This measurement is used to determine
whether a wireless phone complies with safety guidelines.

9. What steps can I take to reduce my exposure to radiofrequency 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 radiofrequency 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.
10. 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 radiofrequency 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. 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.
Appendix 183
11. What about wireless phone interference with medical equipment?
Radiofrequency 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 hearing aids for interference from handheld wireless phones and
helped develop a 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.

184 Appendix
Avoid potential hearing loss
Prolonged exposure to loud sounds (including music) is the most common
cause of preventable hearing loss. Some scientific research suggests
that using portable audio devices, such as portable music players and
cellular telephones, at high volume settings for long durations may lead to
permanent noise-induced hearing loss. This includes the use of headphones
(including headsets, earbuds and Bluetooth® or other wireless devices).
Exposure to very loud sound has also been associated in some studies
with tinnitus (a ringing in the ear), hypersensitivity to sound and distorted
hearing. Individual susceptibility to noise-induced hearing loss and other
potential hearing problems varies.
The amount of sound produced by a portable audio device varies
depending on the nature of the sound, the device, the device settings and
the headphones. You should follow some commonsense recommendations
when using any portable audio device:
• Set the volume in a quiet environment and select the lowest volume at
which you can hear adequately.
• When using headphones, turn the volume down if you cannot hear the
people speaking near you or if the person sitting next to you can hear
what you are listening to.
• Do not turn the volume up to block out noisy surroundings. If you
choose to listen to your portable device in a noisy environment, use
noise-cancelling headphones to block out background environmental
noise.
• Limit the amount of time you listen. As the volume increases, less time is
required before your hearing could be affected.
• Avoid using headphones after exposure to extremely loud noises,
such as concerts, that might cause temporary hearing loss. Temporary
hearing loss might cause unsafe volumes to sound normal.
• Do not listen at any volume that causes you discomfort. If you
experience ringing in your ears, hear muffled speech or experience
any temporary hearing difficulty after listening to your portable audio
device, discontinue use and consult your doctor.
