LIMITED WARRANTY STATEMENT
7.11 Warranty Laws
The following laws govern warranties that arise in retail sales of consumer goods:
 The California Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act [CC §§1790 et seq],
 The California Uniform Commercial Code, Division Two [Com C §§2101 et seq], and
 The federal Magnuson-Moss Warranty Federal Trade Commission Improvement Act [15
USC §§2301 et seq; 16 CFR Parts 701– 703]. A typical Magnuson-Moss Act warranty is a
written promise that the product is free of defects or a written promise to refund, repair, or
replace defective goods. [See 15 USC §2301(6).] Remedies include damages for failing to
honor a written warranty or service contract or for violating disclosure provisions. [See 15
USC §2310(d).] Except for some labeling and disclosure requirements, the federal Act does
not preempt state law. [See 15 USC §2311.]
The Consumer Warranty Act does not affect the rights and obligations of parties under the
state Uniform Commercial Code, except the provisions of the Act prevail over provisions of the
Commercial Code when they confl ict. [CC §1790.3.]
For purposes of small claims actions, this course will focus on rights and duties under the state
laws.

FCC RF Exposure Information
WARNING! Read this information before operating the phone.
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 (RF) 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.
Body-worn Operation
This device was tested for typical use with the back of the phone kept 0.39 inches (1.0
cm) from the body. To comply with FCC RF exposure requirements, a minimum separation
distance of 0.39 inches (1.0 cm) must be maintained between the user’s body and the
back of the phone. Any belt-clips, holsters, and similar accessories containing metallic
components may not be used. Avoid the use of accessories that cannot maintain 0.39
inches (1.0 cm) distance between the user’s body and the back of the phone and have not
been tested for compliance with FCC RF exposure limits.
97
For Your Safety
Caution
Use only the supplied antenna. Use of unauthorized antennas (or modifications to the
antenna) could impair call quality, damage the phone, void your warranty and/or violate FCC
regulations.
Don't use the phone with a damaged antenna. A damaged antenna could cause a minor skin
burn. Contact your local dealer for a replacement antenna.
Consumer Information About Radio Frequency Emissions
Your wireless phone, which contains a radio transmitter and receiver, emits radio
frequency energy during use. The following consumer information addresses commonly
asked questions about the health effects of wireless phones.
Are wireless phones safe?
Scientific research on the subject of wireless phones and radio frequency (“RF”) energy has
been conducted worldwide for many years, and continues. In the United States, the Food
and Drug Administration (“FDA”) and the Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”)
set policies and procedures for wireless phones. The FDA issued a website publication
on health issues related to cell phone usage where it states, “The scientific community
at large … believes that the weight of scientific evidence does not show an association
between exposure to radiofrequency (RF) from cell phones and adverse health outcomes.
Still the scientific community does recommend conducting additional research to address
gaps in knowledge. That research is being conducted around the world and FDA continues
to monitor developments in this field. You can access the joint FDA/FCC website at http://
www.fda.gov (under “c”in the subject index, select Cell Phones > Research). You can also
contact the FDA toll-free at (888) 463-6332 or (888) INFO-FDA. In June 2000, the FDA
entered into a cooperative research and development agreement through which additional
scientific research is being conducted. The FCC issued its own website publication stating
that “there is no scientific evidence that proves that wireless phone usage can lead to
cancer or a variety of other problems, including headaches, dizziness or memory loss.” This
publication is available at http://www.fcc.gov/cgb/ cellular.html or through the FCC at (888)
225-5322 or (888) CALL-FCC.
98
For Your Safety
What does “SAR” mean?
In 1996, the FCC, working with the FDA, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and
other agencies, established RF exposure safety guidelines for wireless phones in the
United States. Before a wireless phone model is available for sale to the public, it must
be tested by the manufacturer and certified to the FCC that it does not exceed limits
established by the FCC. One of these limits is expressed as a Specific Absorption Rate, or
“SAR.” SAR is a measure of the rate of absorption of RF energy in the body. Tests for SAR
are conducted with the phone transmitting at its highest power level in all tested frequency
bands. Since 1996, the FCC has required that the SAR of handheld wireless phones not
exceed 1.6 watts per kilogram, averaged over one gram of tissue.
Although the SAR is determined at the highest power level, the actual SAR value of a
wireless phone while operating can be less than the reported SAR value. This is because
the SAR value may vary from call to call, depending on factors such as proximity to a cell
site, the proximity of the phone to the body while in use, and the use of hands-free devices.
For more information about SARs, see the FCC’s OET Bulletins 56 and 65 at http://www.fcc.
gov/Bureaus/Engineering_Technology/Documents/bulletins or visit the Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association website at http://www.ctia.org/consumer_info/index.cfm/
AID/10371. You may also wish to contact the manufacturer of your phone.
Can I minimize my RF exposure?
If you are concerned about RF, there are several simple steps you can take to minimize
your RF exposure. You can, of course, reduce your talk time. You can place more distance
between your body and the source of the RF, as the exposure level drops off dramatically
with distance. The FDA/FCC website states that “hands-free kits can be used with wireless
phones for convenience and comfort. These systems reduce the absorption of RF energy
in the head because the phone, which is the source of the RF emissions, will not be
placed against the head. On the other hand, if the phone is mounted against the waist or
other part of the body during use, then that part of the body will absorb more RF energy.
Wireless phones marketed in the U.S. are required to meet safety requirements regardless
of whether they are used against the head or against the body. Either configuration should
result in compliance with the safety limit.” Also, if you use your wireless phone while in
a car, you can use a phone with an antenna on the outside of the vehicle. You should also
read and follow your wireless phone manufacturer’s instructions for the safe operation of
your phone.
99
For Your Safety
Do wireless phones pose any special risks to children?
The FDA/FCC website states that “the scientific evidence does not show a danger to users
of wireless communication devices, including children.” The FDA/FCC website further states
that “some groups sponsored by other national governments have advised that children
be discouraged from using wireless phones at all”. For example, the Stewart Report from
the United Kingdom [“UK”] made such a recommendation in December 2000. In this report
a group of independent experts noted that no evidence exists that using a cell phone
causes brain tumors or other ill effects. [The UK’s] recommendation to limit cell phone use
by children was strictly precautionary; it was not based on scientific evidence that any
health hazard exists. A copy of the UK’s leaflet is available at http://www.dh.gov.uk (search
“mobile”), or you can write to: NRPB, Chilton, Didcot, Oxon OX11 ORQ, United Kingdom.
Copies of the UK’s annual reports on mobile phones and RF are available online at www.
iegmp.org.uk and http://www.hpa.org.uk/radiation/ (search “mobile”). Parents who wish to
reduce their children’s RF exposure may choose to restrict their children’s wireless phone

Consumer Information on SAR
(Specific Absorption Rate)
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 using standard operating positions specified by the FCC with the phone
transmitting at its highest certified power level in all tested frequency bands. Although 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. Because the phone is designed to operate
at multiple power levels 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, worn on the body, or hotspot) as required by the FCC for each model.
The highest SAR values are:
* Head: 1.02 W/kg
* Body (Body-worn/Hotspot): 1.23 W/kg
(Body measurements differ among phone models, depending upon available accessories and
FCC requirements).
102
For Your Safety
While there may be differences between 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 emission 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 FCC ID ZNFH443. Additional information
on Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) can be found on the Cellular Telecommunications
Industry Association (CTIA) website 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.
FCC Hearing-Aid Compatibility (HAC) Regulations for Wireless
Devices
On July 10, 2003, the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Report and Order
in WT Docket 01-309 modified the exception of wireless phones under the Hearing Aid
Compatibility Act of 1988 (HAC Act) to require digital wireless phones be compatible
with hearing-aids. The intent of the HAC Act is to ensure reasonable access to
telecommunications services for persons with hearing disabilities.
While some wireless phones are used near some hearing devices (hearing aids and
cochlear implants), users may detect a buzzing, humming, or whining noise. Some hearing
devices are more immune than others to this interference noise, and phones also vary in the
amount of interference they generate.
The wireless telephone industry has developed a rating system for wireless phones, to
assist hearing device users to find phones that may be compatible with their hearing
devices. Not all phones have been rated. Phones that are rated have the rating on their box
or a label located on the box.
The ratings are not guarantees. Results will vary depending on the user's hearing device
and hearing loss. If your hearing device happens to be vulnerable to interference, you may
not be able to use a rated phone successfully. Trying out the phone with your hearing device
103
For Your Safety
is the best way to evaluate it for your personal needs.
M-Ratings: Phones rated M3 or M4 meet FCC requirements and are likely to generate less
interference to hearing devices than phones that are not labeled. M4 is the better/higher of
the two ratings.
T-Ratings: Phones rated T3 or T4 meet FCC requirements and are likely to generate less
interference to hearing devices than phones that are not labeled. T4 is the better/ higher of
the two ratings.
Hearing devices may also be rated. Your hearing device manufacturer or hearing health
professional may help you find this rating. Higher ratings mean that the hearing device is
relatively immune to interference noise. The hearing aid and wireless phone rating values
are then added together. A sum of 5 is considered acceptable for normal use. A sum of 6 is
considered for best use.
In the above example, if a hearing aid meets the M2 level rating and the wireless phone
meets the M3 level rating, the sum of the two values equal M5. This should provide the
hearing aid user with “normal usage” while using their hearing aid with the particular
wireless phone. “Normal usage” in this context is defined as a signal quality that’s
acceptable for normal operation.
The M mark is intended to be synonymous with the U mark. The T mark is intended to be
synonymous with the UT mark. The M and T marks are recommended by the Alliance for
Telecommunications Industries Solutions (ATIS). The U and UT marks are referenced in
Section 20.19 of the FCC Rules. The HAC rating and measurement procedure are described
in the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) C63.19 standard.
To ensure that the Hearing Aid Compatibility rating for your phone is maintained, secondary
transmitters such as Bluetooth and WLAN components must be disabled during a call.
This phone has been tested and rated for use with hearing aids for some of the wireless
104
For Your Safety
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 or the manufacturer of this phone for information on hearing aid compatibility. If
you have questions about return or exchange policies, consult your service provider or phone
retailer.

For Your Safety
Caution: 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 rock 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.

For Your Safety
TIA Safety Information
The following is the complete TIA Safety Information for wireless handheld phones.
Exposure to Radio Frequency Signal
Your wireless handheld portable phone is a low power radio transmitter and receiver. When
ON, it receives and 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)
* American National Standards Institute; National Council on Radiation Protection and
Measurements; International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection
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 (C95.1).
The design of your phone complies with the FCC guidelines (and those standards).
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.
107
For Your Safety
Tips on Efficient Operation
For your phone to operate most efficiently:
Don’t touch the antenna unnecessarily when the phone is in use. Contact with the antenna
affects call quality and may cause the phone to operate at a higher power level than
otherwise needed.
Electronic Devices
Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from RF signals. 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:
 Should ALWAYS keep the phone more than six (6) inches from their pacemaker when the
phone is turned ON;
 Should not carry the phone in a breast pocket;
 Should use the ear opposite the pacemaker to minimize the potential for interference;
 Should turn the phone OFF immediately if there is any reason to suspect that interference
is taking place.
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
108
For Your Safety
to discuss alternatives).
Other Medical Devices
If you use any other personal medical device, consult the manufacturer of your device to
determine if it is adequately shielded from external RF energy. Your physician may be able to
assist you in obtaining this information.
Health Care Facilities
Turn your phone OFF in health care facilities when any regulations posted in these areas
instruct you to do so. Hospitals or health care facilities may use 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 in any facility where posted notices so require.
Aircraft
FCC regulations prohibit using your phone while in the air. Switch OFF your phone 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.
109
For Your Safety
Potentially Explosive Atmosphere
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 marked clearly.
Potential areas may include: fueling areas (such as gasoline 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 particles (such as grain, dust,
or metal powders); and any other area where you would normally be advised to turn off your
vehicle engine.
For Vehicles Equipped with an Air Bag
An air bag inflates with great force. DO NOT place objects, including either installed or
portable wireless equipment, in the area over the air bag or in the air bag deployment area.
If in-vehicle wireless equipment is improperly installed and the air bag inflates, serious injury
could result.
Part 15.19 statement
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.

FDA Consumer Update
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health
Consumer Update on Mobile 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 (RF) energy in the microwave
range while being used. They also emit very low levels of RF when in standby 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 the FDA's role concerning the safety of wireless phones?
Under the law, the 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 Radio Frequency (RF) energy at a level that is hazardous to the user. In such a case, the
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.
117
For Your Safety
Although the existing scientific data do not justify FDA regulatory actions, the 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.
The 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
 Occupational Safety and Health Administration
 National Telecommunications and Information Administration
The National Institutes of Health participates in some interagency working group activities,
as well.
The 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. The FCC relies on the FDA and
other health agencies for safety questions about wireless phones.
The 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.
118
For Your Safety
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. These types of wireless phones can expose
the user to measurable Radio Frequency (RF) energy because of the short distance between
the phone and the user’s head.
These RF exposures are limited by FCC safety guidelines that were developed with the
advice of the 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 Radio
Frequency (RF) energy 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 pre-disposed 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 do not 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
119
For Your Safety
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 ten 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 the FDA doing to find out more about the possible health effects of wireless
phone RF?
The 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 Radio Frequency (RF) energy.
The FDA has been a leading participant in the World Health Organization International
Electro Magnetic 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.

The FDA and the Cellular Telecommunications & Internet Association (CTIA) have a formal
Cooperative Research And Development Agreement (CRADA) to do research on wireless
phone safety. The FDA provides the scientific oversight, obtaining input from experts in
government, industry, and academic organizations. CTIA-funded research is conducted
through contracts with 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.
7. How can I find out how much Radio Frequency 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 Radio Frequency (RF) energy exposures. The FCC established these
guidelines in consultation with the FDA and the other federal health and safety agencies.
The FCC limit for RF exposure from wireless phones 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 the FDA done to measure the Radio Frequency energy coming from wireless
phones?
The Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) is developing a technical standard
for measuring the Radio Frequency (RF) energy exposure from wireless phones and other
wireless handsets with the participation and leadership of FDA scientists and engineers.
121
For Your Safety
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 tissuesimulating 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 Radio Frequency 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 Radio Frequency (RF) energy.
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 does
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 Radio Frequency (RF)
energy, the measures described above would apply to children and teenagers using wireless
122
For Your Safety
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?
Radio Frequency (RF) energy from wireless phones can interact with some electronic devices.
For this reason, the FDA helped develop a detailed test method to measure Electro Magnetic
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 the 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.
The 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.
The FDA continues to monitor the use of wireless phones for possible interactions with other
medical devices. Should harmful interference be found to occur, the FDA will conduct testing
to assess the interference and work to resolve the problem.

Driving
Check the laws and regulations on the use of wireless phones in the areas where you drive
and always obey them. Also, if using your phone while driving, please observe the following:
 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 or the
law require it.
10 Driver Safety Tips
Your wireless phone gives you the powerful ability to communicate by voice almost
anywhere, anytime. An important responsibility accompanies the benefits of wireless
phones, one that every user must uphold.
When operating a car, driving is your first responsibility. When using your wireless phone
124
For Your Safety
behind the wheel of a car, practice good common sense and remember the following tips:
1. Get to know your wireless phone and its features such as speed dial and redial. Carefully
read your instruction manual and learn to take advantage of valuable features most
phones offer, including automatic redial and memory. Also, work to memorize the phone
keypad so you can use the speed dial function without taking your attention off the road.
2. When available, use a hands-free device. A number of hands-free wireless phone
accessories are readily available today. Whether you choose an installed mounted device
for your wireless phone or a speaker phone accessory, take advantage of these devices if
available to you.
3. Make sure you place your wireless phone within easy reach and where you can reach it
without removing your eyes from the road. If you get an incoming call at an inconvenient
time, if possible, let your voicemail answer it for you.
4. Suspend conversations during hazardous driving conditions or situations. 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, and ice can be hazardous, but so is
heavy traffic. As a driver, your first responsibility is to pay attention to the road.
5. Don’t take notes or look up phone numbers while driving. If you are reading an address
book or business card, or writing a “to-do” list while driving a car, you are not watching
where you are going. It is common sense. Do not get caught in a dangerous situation
because you are reading or writing and not paying attention to the road or nearby
vehicles.
6. Dial sensibly and assess the traffic; if possible, place calls when you are not moving or
before pulling into traffic. Try to plan your calls before you begin your trip or attempt to
coincide your calls with times you may be stopped at a stop sign, red light, or otherwise
stationary. But if you need to dial while driving, follow this simple tip -- dial only a few
numbers, check the road and your mirrors, then continue.
7. Do not engage in stressful or emotional conversations that may be distracting. Stressful or
125
For Your Safety
emotional conversations and driving do not mix; they are distracting and even dangerous
when you are behind the wheel of a car. Make people you are talking with aware you are
driving and if necessary, suspend conversations which have the potential to divert your
attention from the road.
8. Use your wireless phone to call for help. Your wireless phone is one of the greatest tools
you can own to protect yourself and your family in dangerous situations -- with your phone
at your side, help is only three numbers away. Dial 911 or other local emergency number
in the case of fire, traffic accident, road hazard, or medical emergency. Remember, it’s a
free call on your wireless phone!
9. Use your wireless phone to help others in emergencies. Your wireless phone provides
you a perfect opportunity to be a “Good Samaritan” in your community. If you see an auto
accident, crime in progress or other serious emergency where lives are in danger, call 911
or other local emergency number, as you would want others to do for you.
10. Call roadside assistance or a special wireless non-emergency assistance number when
necessary. Certain situations you encounter while driving may require attention, but are
not urgent enough to merit a call for emergency services. But you can still use your
wireless phone to lend a hand. 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.
The above tips are meant as general guidelines. Before deciding to use your mobile device
while operating a vehicle, it is recommended that you consult your applicable jurisdiction’s
local laws or other regulations regarding such use. Such laws or other regulations may
prohibit or otherwise restrict the manner in which a driver may use his or her phone while
operating a vehicle.
