Safety and General Information
This section contains important information on the safe and
efficient operation of your mobile device. Read this information
before using your mobile device.*
Safety Information
Exposure To Radio Frequency (RF) Energy
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.
* The information provided in this document supersedes the general safety
information in user’s guides published prior to September 1, 2005.
Your Motorola mobile device is designed to comply with local regulatory
requirements in your country concerning exposure of human beings
to RF energy.
Operational Precautions
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.
External Antenna Care
If your mobile device has an external antenna, use only a Motorolasupplied or approved replacement antenna. Use of unauthorized
Safety and General Information
modifications, or attachments could damage the mobile device and/
or may result in your device not complying with local regulatory
requirements in your country.
DO NOT hold the external antenna when the mobile device is IN USE.
Holding the external antenna affects call quality and may cause the
mobile device to operate at a higher power level than needed.
Product Operation
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
centimeters (1 inch) from your body when transmitting.
When using any data feature of the mobile device, with or without an
accessory cable, position the mobile device and its antenna at least
2.5 centimeters (1 inch) from your body. 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
Nearly every electronic device is subject to RF energy interference from
external sources if inadequately
Safety and General Information
shielded, designed, or otherwise configured for RF energy compatibility.
In some circumstances your mobile device may cause interference
with other devices.
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject
to the following two conditions: (1) this device may not cause harmful
interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received,
including interference that may cause undesired operation.
Follow Instructions to Avoid Interference Problems
Turn off your mobile device in any location where posted notices instruct
you to do so. These locations include hospitals or health care facilities that
may be using equipment that is sensitive to external RF energy.
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.
If you have a pacemaker, consult your physician before using this device.
Persons with pacemakers should observe the following precautions:
• ALWAYS keep the mobile device more than 20 centimeters
(8 inches) from your pacemaker when the mobile device is turned
• DO NOT carry the mobile device in the breast pocket.
• Use the ear opposite the pacemaker to minimize the potential for
Safety and General Information
• Turn OFF the mobile device immediately if you have any reason to
suspect that interference is taking place.
Hearing Aids
Some digital mobile devices may interfere with some hearing aids. In the
event of such interference, you may want to consult your hearing aid
manufacturer or physician to discuss alternatives.
Other Medical Devices
If you use any other personal medical device, consult your physician or the
manufacturer of your device to determine if it is adequately shielded
from RF energy.
Driving Precautions
Check the laws and regulations on the use of mobile devices in the area
where you drive. Always obey them.
When using your mobile device while driving, please:
• Give full attention to driving and to the road. Using a mobile device
may be distracting. Discontinue a call if you can’t concentrate on
• Use handsfree operation, if available.
• Pull off the road and park before making or answering a call if driving
conditions so require.

Driving” section at the end of this guide and/or at the Motorola website:
Safety and General Information
Operational Warnings
Obey all posted signs when using mobile devices in public areas, such as
health care facilities or blasting areas.
Automobile Air Bags
Do not place a mobile device in the air bag deployment area.
Potentially Explosive Atmospheres
Areas with potentially explosive atmospheres are often but not always
posted, and can include fueling areas such as below decks
on boats, fuel or chemical transfer or storage facilities, or areas where the
air contains chemicals or particles, such as grain, dust, or metal powders.
When you are in such an area, turn off your mobile device, and do not
remove, install, or charge batteries. In such areas, sparks can occur and
cause an explosion or fire.
Damaged Products
If your mobile device or battery has been submerged in water, punctured,
or subjected to a severe fall, do not use it until you take it to a
Motorola Authorized Service Center. Do not attempt to dry it with an
external heat source, such as a microwave oven.
Batteries and Chargers
If jewelry, keys, beaded chains, or other conductive materials touch
exposed battery terminals, this could complete an electrical circuit
(short circuit), become very hot, and could cause damage or injury. Be
Safety and General Information
careful when handling a charged battery, particularly when placing it
inside a pocket, purse, or other container with metal objects. Use only
Motorola Original ™ batteries and chargers.
Caution: To avoid risk of personal injury, do not dispose of your battery
in a fire.
Your battery, charger, or mobile device may contain symbols, defined as

break if the product is dropped on a hard surface or receives a
substantial impact. If glass breaks, do not touch or attempt to remove.
Stop using your mobile device until the glass is replaced by a qualified
service center.
Some people may be susceptible to epileptic seizures or blackouts when
exposed to flashing lights, such as when playing video games.
These may occur even if a person has never had a previous seizure or
blackout. If you have experienced seizures or blackouts, or if you have
a family history of such occurrences, please consult with your physician
before playing video games or enabling a flashing-lights feature (if
available) on your mobile device. Discontinue use and consult a physician
if any of the following symptoms occur: convulsion, eye or muscle
twitching, loss of awareness, involuntary movements, or disorientation.
It is always a good idea to hold the screen away from your eyes, leave
the lights on in the room, take a 15-minute break every hour, and stop use if
you are very tired.
Repetitive Motion
When you repetitively perform actions such as pressing keys or entering
finger- written characters, you may experience occasional discomfort in
your hands, arms, shoulders, neck, or other parts of your body.
If you continue to have discomfort during or after such use, stop use and
see a physician.

Specific Absorption Rate Data
SAR Data
This model meets international guidelines for exposure
to radio waves.
Your mobile device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed not to
exceed the limits for exposure to radio waves recommended by
international guidelines. These guidelines were developed by the
independent scientific organization ICNIRP and include safety margins
designed to assure the protection of all persons, regardless of age and
The guidelines use a unit of measurement known as the Specific
Absorption Rate, or SAR. The ICNIRP SAR limit for mobiles devices used by
the general public is 2 W/kg and the highest SAR value for this device
when tested at the ear was 0.88 W/kg.1 As mobile devices offer a range of
functions, they can be used in other positions, such as on the body as
described in this user guide.2 In this case, the highest tested SAR value is
0.35 W/kg.1
As SAR is measured utilizing the device’s highest transmitting power, the
actual SAR of this device while operating is typically below that indicated
above. This is due to automatic changes to the power level of the device to
ensure it only uses the minimum level required to reach the network.
While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various phones
and at various positions, they all meet the governmental requirements for
safe exposure. Please note that improvements to this product model could
cause differences in the SAR value for later products; in all cases, products
are designed to be within the guidelines.
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 note that if you want to reduce your exposure

then you can do so by limiting the length of calls or using a “hands-free”
device to keep the mobile phone away from the head and body.
Additional Information can be found on the websites of the World Health
Organization ( or Motorola, Inc.
1. The tests are carried out in accordance with international guidelines for
testing. The limit incorporates a substantial margin for safety to give additional
protection for the public and to account for any variations in measurements.

Information from the World Health Organization
Present scientific information does not indicate the need for any special
precautions for the use of mobile phones. If you are concerned, you may
want to limit your own or your children’s RF exposure by limiting the length
of calls or by using handsfree devices to keep mobile phones away from
your head and body.
