Read This Information Before Using Your Handheld
Portable Cellular 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 Commissions (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 C95.1 (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).
SAFETY INFORMATION FOR WIRELESS
HANDHELD PHONES
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:
l
Give full attention to driving. Driving safely is your first responsibility.
l
Use hands-free operation, if available.
l
Pull off the road and park before making or answering a call, if
driving conditions so require.
If you must use the phone while driving, please use one-touch, speed
dialing, and auto answer modes.
An airbag inflates with great force. DO NOT place objects, including both
installed or portable wireless equipment, in the area over the airbag or in
the air bag deployment area. If in-vehicle wireless equipment is
improperly installed and the air bag inflates, serious injury could result.
WARNING: Failure to follow these instructions may lead to serious
personal injury and possible property damage.
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.

OTHER SAFETY GUIDELINES
ELECTRONIC DEVICES
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.
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 :
AIRCRAFT
FCC and Transport Canada Regulations prohibit using your phone while
in the air. Turn your phone OFF before boarding an aircraft.
BLASTING AREAS
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.
POTENTIALLY EXPLOSIVE ATMOSPHERES
l
ALWAYS keep the phone more than six inches from your
pacemaker when the phone is turned on.
l
Do not carry the phone in a breast pocket.
l
Use the ear opposite the pacemaker to minimize the potential for
interference.
l
If you have any reason to suspect that interference is taking place,
turn your phone OFF immediately.
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.
Areas with a potentially explosive atmosphere are often, but not always,
clearly marked. They include fueling areas such as gas 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 articles, such as grain, dust, or metal powders; and
any other area where you would normally be advised to turn off your
vehicle’s engine.
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.

PRECAUTIONS
SAFETY INFORMATION FOR
FCC RF EXPOSURE
WARNING! Read this Information before using
Your Handheld Portable Telephone is a high quality piece of
equipment. Before operating, read all instructions and cautionary
markings on (1) AC Adaptor (2) Battery and (3) Product Using Battery.
DO NOT use this equipment in an extreme environment where
high temperature or high humidity exists.
DO NOT abuse the equipment. Avoid striking, shaking or
shocking. When not using, lay down the unit to avoid possible
damage due to instability.
DO NOT expose this equipment to rain or spilled beverages.
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.
Use only the supplied or an approved antenna. Unauthorized antennas,
modifications, or attachments could impair call quality, damage the
phone, or result in violation of FCC regulations.
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.
DO NOT use unauthorized accessories.
BODY-WORN OPERATION
DO NOT disassemble the phone or its accessories. If service
or repair is required, return unit to an authorized Audiovox
cellular service center. If unit is disassembled, the risk of
electric shock or fire may result.
DO NOT short-circuit the battery terminals with metal items etc.
This device was tested for typical body-worn operations with the
back of the phone kept 2.0 cm. from the body. To maintain
compliance with FCC RF exposure requirements, use only belt-clips,
holsters or similar accessories that maintain a 2.0 cm. 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.

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.
SAR INFORMATION
Additional information on Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) can be
found on the Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association (CTIA)
web-site at http://www.wow-com.com.
* 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 sub-stantial margin of safety to
give additional protection for the public and to account for any
variations in measurements.
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 1.15 W/Kg and when worn on the body, as described
in this user guide, is 0.393W/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 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/fccid after searching on
PP4TX-110C.

FDA CONSUMER UPDATE
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 radio frequency
energy (RF) in the microwave range while being used. They also emit very low
levels of RF when in the stand-by mode. 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 de-vices. However, the agency has authority to take action if
wireless phones are shown to emit radio frequency 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:
• 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 interagency 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 handheld wireless phones with built-in
antennas, often called “cell,” “mobile,” or “PCS” phones.
98
FDA CONSUMER UPDATE
These types of wireless phones can expose the user to measurable radio
frequency energy (RF) because of the short distance between the phone and the
user’s head.
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 neuroma, 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.
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 cancercausing 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 Cellular Telecommunications & Internet Association
(CTIA) have a formal Cooperative Research and De-velopment 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.
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.
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 Electri-cal
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.
100
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.
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 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.
