frequency (RF) energy set by the Federal Communications Commission of the U.S. Government.
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 1.6W/kg. *Tests for SAR are
conducted using standard operating positions accepted by the FCC with the phone transmitting at its
highest certified power level in all tested frequency bands. Although the SAR is determined at the
highest certified power level, the actual SAR level of the phone while operating can be well below the
maximum value. This is because the phone is designed to operate at multiple power levels so as to
use only the power required to reach the network. In general, the closer you are to a wireless base
station, the lower the power output.
The highest SAR value for the model phone as reported to the FCC when tested for use at the ear is
1.480 W/kg and when worn on the body, as described in this user guide, is 0.715 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.
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
www.fcc.gov/oet/ea/fccid after searching on FCC ID: P46-U670C.
For body worn operation, this phone has been tested and meets the FCC RF exposure guidelines for
use with an accessory that contains no metal and the positions the handset a minimum of 1.5 cm from
the body. Use of other accessories may not ensure compliance with FCC RF exposure guidelines. If
you do no t use a body-worn accessory and are not holding the phone at the ear, position the handset
a minimum of 1.5 cm from your body when the phone is switched on.

HEARING AID COMPATIBILITY HAC FOR WIRELESS
TELECOMMUNICATIONS DEVICES
THIS PHONE HAS A HAC RATING OF M4/T4
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 C63.19. There are two sets of ANSI
standards with ratings from one to four (four being the 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.
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.
