Radio Frequency (RF) Energy
Exposure to RF Energy
Important safety information follows.
Your mobile device contains a transmitter and receiver. When it is ON, it receives and
transmits RF energy. When you communicate with your mobile device, the system
handling your call controls the power level at which your mobile device transmits.
Your mobile device is designed to comply with local regulatory requirements in your
country concerning exposure of human beings to RF energy.
Do not dispose of your battery or mobile device in a fire.
RF Energy Operational Precautions
Your battery or mobile device may require recycling in accordance
with local laws. Contact your local regulatory authorities for more
Do not dispose of your battery or mobile device with your household
waste. See “Recycling” for more information.
For optimal mobile device performance, and to be sure that human exposure to RF energy
does not exceed the guidelines set forth in the relevant standards, always follow these
instructions and precautions:
• When placing or receiving a phone call, hold your mobile device just like you would a
landline phone.
• If you wear the mobile device on your body, always place the mobile device in a
Motorola-supplied or approved clip, holder, holster, case, or body harness. If you do not
use a body-worn accessory supplied or approved by Motorola, keep the mobile device
and its antenna at least 2.5 cm (1 inch) from your body when transmitting.
• Using accessories not supplied or approved by Motorola may cause your mobile device
to exceed RF energy exposure guidelines. For a list of Motorola-supplied or approved
accessories, visit our website at:
RF Energy Interference/Compatibility
Nearly every electronic device is subject to RF energy interference from external sources if
inadequately shielded, designed, or otherwise configured for RF energy compatibility. In
some circumstances, your mobile device may cause interference with other devices.
Follow Instructions to Avoid Interference Problems
Turn off your mobile device in any location where posted notices instruct you to do so.
In an aircraft, turn off your mobile device whenever instructed to do so by airline staff. If
your mobile device offers an airplane mode or similar feature, consult airline staff about
using it in flight.
Implantable Medical Devices
If you have an implantable medical device, such as a pacemaker or defibrillator, consult
your physician before using this mobile device.
Persons with implantable medical devices should observe the following precautions:
• ALWAYS keep the mobile device more than 20 centimeters (8 inches) from the
implantable medical device when the mobile device is turned ON.
• DO NOT carry the mobile device in the breast pocket.
• Use the ear opposite the implantable medical device to minimize the potential for
• Turn OFF the mobile device immediately if you have any reason to suspect that
interference is taking place.
Read and follow the directions from the manufacturer of your implantable medical device.
If you have any questions about using your mobile device with your implantable medical
device, consult your healthcare provider.
Specific Absorption Rate (ICNIRP)
Your mobile device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed not to exceed the
limits for exposure to radio waves (radio frequency electromagnetic fields) recommended
by international guidelines. The guidelines were developed by an independent scientific
organization (ICNIRP) and include a substantial safety margin designed to assure the
safety of all persons, regardless of age and health.
The radio wave exposure guidelines use a unit of measurement known as the Specific
Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit for mobile devices is 2 W/kg.
Tests for SAR are conducted using standard operating positions with the device
transmitting at its highest certified power level in all tested frequency bands. The highest
SAR values under the ICNIRP guidelines for your device model are listed below:
Head SAR
UMTS 900/2100, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth
UMTS 850/2100, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth
0.904 W/kg
1.08 W/kg
Body-worn SAR
UMTS 900/2100, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth
UMTS 850/2100, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth
0.849 W/kg
0.903 W/kg
During use, the actual SAR values for your device are usually well below the values
stated. This is because, for purposes of system efficiency and to minimise interference on
the network, the operating power of your mobile device is automatically decreased when
full power is not needed for the call. The lower the power output of the device, the lower
its SAR value.
Body-worn SAR testing has been carried out using an approved accessory or at a
separation distance of 2.5 cm (1 inch). To meet RF exposure guidelines during body-worn
operation, the device should be in an approved accessory or positioned at least 2.5 cm
(1 inch) away from the body. If you are not using an approved accessory, ensure that
whatever product is used is free of any metal and that it positions the phone at least
2.5 cm (1 inch) away from the body.
The World Health Organization has stated that present scientific information does not
indicate the need for any special precautions for the use of mobile devices. They
recommend that if you are interested in further reducing your exposure then you can easily
do so by limiting your usage or simply using a hands-free kit to keep the device away from
the head and body.
Additional information can be found at (World Health
Organization) or (Motorola Mobility, Inc.).

The following information is applicable to Motorola mobile devices that provide locationbased (GPS and/or AGPS) functionality.
Your mobile device can use Global Positioning System (GPS) signals for location-based
applications. GPS uses satellites controlled by the U.S. government that are subject to
changes implemented in accordance with the Department of Defense policy and the
Federal Radio Navigation Plan. These changes may affect the performance of location
technology on your mobile device.
Your mobile device can also use Assisted Global Positioning System (AGPS), which
obtains information from the cellular network to improve GPS performance. AGPS uses
your wireless service provider's network and therefore airtime, data charges, and/or
additional charges may apply in accordance with your service plan. Contact your wireless
service provider for details.
Your Location
Location-based information includes information that can be used to determine the
approximate location of a mobile device. Mobile devices which are connected to a
wireless network transmit location-based information. Devices enabled with GPS or AGPS
technology also transmit location-based information. Additionally, if you use applications
that require location-based information (e.g. driving directions), such applications transmit
location-based information. This location-based information may be shared with third
parties, including your wireless service provider, applications providers, Motorola, and
other third parties providing services.
Emergency Calls
When you make an emergency call, the cellular network may activate the AGPS
technology in your mobile device to tell the emergency responders your approximate
AGPS has limitations and might not work in your area. Therefore:
• Always tell the emergency responder your location to the best of your ability; and
• Remain on the phone for as long as the emergency responder instructs you.
The following information is applicable to Motorola mobile devices that provide
navigation features.
When using navigation features, note that mapping information, directions and other
navigational data may contain inaccurate or incomplete data. In some countries, complete
information may not be available. Therefore, you should visually confirm that the
navigational instructions are consistent with what you see. All drivers should pay
attention to road conditions, closures, traffic, and all other factors that may impact driving.
Always obey posted road signs.
Smart Practices While Driving
Check the laws and regulations on the use of mobile devices and their
accessories in the areas where you drive. Always obey them. The use of these
devices may be prohibited or restricted in certain areas—for example,
handsfree use only may be required. Go to
(in English only) for more information.
Your mobile device lets you communicate by voice and data—almost anywhere, anytime,
wherever wireless service is available and safe conditions allow. When driving a car,
driving is your first responsibility. If you choose to use your mobile device while driving,
remember the following tips:
• Get to know your Motorola mobile device and its features such as speed dial,
redial and voice dial. If available, these features help you to place your call without
taking your attention off the road.
• When available, use a handsfree device. If possible, add an additional layer of
convenience to your mobile device with one of the many Motorola Original handsfree
accessories available today.
• Position your mobile device within easy reach. Be able to access your mobile
device without removing your eyes from the road. If you receive an incoming call at an
inconvenient time, if possible, let your voicemail answer it for you.
• Let the person you are speaking with know you are driving; if necessary,
suspend the call in heavy traffic or hazardous weather conditions. Rain, sleet,
snow, ice, and even heavy traffic can be hazardous.
• Do not take notes or look up phone numbers while driving. Jotting down a “to
do” list or going through your address book takes attention away from your primary
responsibility—driving safely.
• Dial sensibly and assess the traffic; if possible, place calls when your car is
not moving or before pulling into traffic. If you must make a call while moving, dial
only a few numbers, check the road and your mirrors, then continue.
• Do not engage in stressful or emotional conversations that may be
distracting. Make people you are talking with aware you are driving and suspend
conversations that can divert your attention away from the road.
• Use your mobile device to call for help. Dial 911 or other local emergency number
in the case of fire, traffic accident, or medical emergencies (wherever wireless phone
service is available).
• Use your mobile device to help others in emergencies. If you see an auto
accident, crime in progress, or other serious emergency where lives are in danger, call
Driving Safety
911 or other local emergency number (wherever wireless phone service is available),
as you would want others to do for you.
• Call roadside assistance or a special non-emergency wireless assistance
number when necessary. 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 number (wherever wireless phone service is available).
Privacy & Data Security
Motorola understands that privacy and data security are important to everyone. Because
some features of your mobile device may affect your privacy or data security, please
follow these recommendations to enhance protection of your information:
• Monitor access—Keep your mobile device with you and do not leave it where others
may have unmonitored access. Use your device’s security and lock features, where
• Keep software up to date—If Motorola or a software/application vendor releases a
patch or software fix for your mobile device that updates the device’s security, install it
as soon as possible.
• Secure Personal Information—Your mobile device can store personal information
in various locations including your SIM card, memory card, and phone memory. Be sure
to remove or clear all personal information before you recycle, return, or give away
your device. You can also backup your personal data to transfer to a new device.
Note: For information on how to backup or wipe data from your mobile device, go to
• Online accounts—Some mobile devices provide a Motorola online account (such as
MOTOBLUR). Go to your account for information on how to manage the account, and
how to use security features such as remote wipe and device location (where
• Applications and updates—Choose your apps and updates carefully, and install
from trusted sources only. Some apps can impact your phone’s performance and/or
have access to private information including account details, call data, location details
and network resources.
• Wireless—For mobile devices with Wi-Fi features, only connect to trusted Wi-Fi
networks. Also, when using your device as a hotspot (where available) use network
security. These precautions will help prevent unauthorised access to your device.
Privacy & Data Security
• Location-based information—Location-based information includes information that
can be used to determine the approximate location of a mobile device. Mobile phones
which are connected to a wireless network transmit location-based information.
Devices enabled with GPS or AGPS technology also transmit location-based
information. Additionally, if you use applications that require location-based
information (e.g. driving directions), such applications transmit location-based
information. This location-based information may be shared with third parties,
including your wireless service provider, applications providers, Motorola, and other
third parties providing services.
• Other information your device may transmit—Your device may also transmit
testing and other diagnostic (including location-based) information, and other
non-personal information to Motorola or other third-party servers. This information is
used to help improve products and services offered by Motorola.
If you have further questions regarding how the use of your mobile device may impact your
privacy or data security, please contact Motorola at, or
contact your service provider.
