Safety, Regulatory & Legal
Battery Use & Safety
Important: Handle and store batteries properly to avoid injury or damage.
Most battery issues arise from improper handling of batteries, and particularly from
the continued use of damaged batteries.
• Don’t disassemble, crush, puncture, shred, or otherwise attempt to
change the form of your battery.
• Don’t let the phone or battery come in contact with water. Water can get
into the phone’s circuits, leading to corrosion. If the phone and/or battery get
wet, have them checked by your service provider or contact Motorola, even if
they appear to be working properly.*
• Don’t allow the battery to touch metal objects. If metal objects, such as
jewelry, stay in prolonged contact with the battery contact points, the battery
could become very hot.
• Don’t place your battery near a heat source. Excessive heat can damage the
phone or the battery. High temperatures can cause the battery to swell, leak, or
malfunction. Therefore:
• Do not dry a wet or damp battery with an appliance or heat source, such as a
hair dryer or microwave oven.
• Avoid leaving your phone in your car in high temperatures.*
• Do avoid dropping the battery or phone. Dropping these items, especially on
a hard surface, can potentially cause damage.*
• Do contact your service provider or Motorola if your phone or battery
has been damaged from dropping or high temperatures.
* Note: If the product guide expressly states that your phone is designed to resist
damage from exposure to certain rugged conditions, such as water immersion, rain,
dust, high and low temperatures, shock, or other conditions, do not exceed the
stated limits, and ensure the stated precautions are taken. Always make sure that
Battery Use & Safety
the battery compartment is closed and secure to avoid direct exposure of the battery
to any of these conditions.
Important: Use Motorola Original products for quality assurance and
safeguards. To aid consumers in identifying authentic Motorola batteries from
non-original or counterfeit batteries (that may not have adequate safety protection),
Motorola provides holograms on its batteries. Consumers should confirm that any
battery they purchase has a “Motorola Original” hologram.
Motorola recommends you always use Motorola-branded batteries and
chargers. Motorola mobile devices are designed to work with Motorola batteries.
If you see a message on your display such as Invalid Battery or
Unable to Charge, take the following steps:
• Remove the battery and inspect it to confirm that it has a “Motorola Original”
• If there is no hologram, the battery is not a Motorola battery;
• If there is a hologram, replace the battery and retry charging it;
• If the message remains, contact a Motorola authorized service center.
Important: Motorola’s warranty does not cover damage to the phone caused by
non-Motorola batteries and/or chargers.
Warning: Use of a non-Motorola battery or charger may present a risk of fire,
explosion, leakage, or other hazard.
Proper and safe battery disposal and recycling: Proper battery disposal is not
only important for safety, it benefits the environment. Consumers may recycle their
used batteries in many retail or service provider locations. Additional information on
proper disposal and recycling may be found on the Web:
• (in English only)
Disposal: Promptly dispose of used batteries in accordance with local
regulations. Contact your local recycling center or national recycling
organizations for more information on how to dispose of batteries.
Warning: Never dispose of batteries in a fire because they may explode.
Battery Charging
Notes for charging your phone’s battery:
Battery Charging
• When charging your battery, keep it near room temperature. Never expose
batteries to temperatures below 0°C (32°F) or above 45°C (113°F) when
• New batteries are not fully charged.
• New batteries or batteries stored for a long time may take more time to charge.
• Motorola batteries and charging systems have circuitry that protects the battery
from damage from overcharging.
Specific Absorption Rate (IEEE)
Your model wireless phone meets the governmental
requirements for exposure to radio waves.
Your mobile device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed and
manufactured to not exceed limits for exposure to radio frequency (RF) energy set by
the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) of the U.S. Government and by the
Canadian regulatory authorities. 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 for the safety of all persons,
regardless of age or health, and to account for any variations in measurements.
The exposure standard for mobile devices employs a unit of measurement known as
the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR). The IEEE SAR limit set by the FCC and by the
Canadian regulatory authorities is 1.6 watts per kilogram (W/kg), averaged over one
gram of tissue. Tests for SAR are conducted using procedures accepted by the FCC
and by Industry Canada with the mobile device transmitting at its highest certified
power level in all tested frequencies. Although the SAR is determined at the highest
certified power level, the actual SAR level of the mobile device while operating can
be below the maximum value. This is because the mobile device 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.
Before a mobile device is available for sale to the public in the U.S. and Canada, it
must be tested and certified to the FCC and Industry Canada that it does not exceed
the limit established by each government for safe exposure. The tests are performed
in positions and locations (e.g., at the ear and worn on the body) submitted to the
FCC and available for review by Industry Canada. The highest SAR value for this
mobile device when tested for use at the ear is 0.69 W/kg, and when worn on the
body, as described in this guide, is 1.11 W/kg. The SAR value for this mobile device
in its data transmission mode (body-worn use) is 1.07 W/kg. Body-worn
measurements can differ, depending upon available accessories and regulatory
requirements. The SAR information includes the Motorola testing protocol,
assessment procedure, and measurement uncertainty range for this product.
While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various mobile devices
and at various positions, they 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.
Additional information on SAR can be found on the Cellular Telecommunications
& Internet Association (CTIA) Web site:
or the Canadian Wireless Telecommunications Association (CWTA) Web site:

Your Location
Safety & General 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.
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.
Performance Tips
• Go outside and away from underground locations, covered vehicles, structures
with metal or concrete roofs, tall buildings, and foliage. Indoor performance
might improve if you move closer to windows, but some window sun shielding
films can block satellite signals.
• Move away from radios, entertainment equipment, and other electronic devices.

What Other Limitations are There?
Some states and jurisdictions do not allow the limitation or exclusion of

implied warranty, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to
you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have
other rights that vary from state to state or from one jurisdiction to another.
Hearing Aid Compatibility with Mobile
Some Motorola phones are measured for compatibility with hearing aids. If the box
for your particular model has “Rated for Hearing Aids” printed on it, the following
explanation applies.
When some mobile 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 ratings for some of their mobile
phones, to assist hearing device users in finding 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 on the box. To maintain the published Hearing
Aid Compatibility (HAC) rating for this mobile phone, use only the original equipment
battery model.
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
Hearing Aid Compatibility
phone with your hearing device is the best way to evaluate it for your personal
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 be more
usable with a hearing device’s telecoil (“T Switch” or “Telephone Switch”) than
unrated phones. T4 is the better/higher of the two ratings. (Note that not all hearing
devices have telecoils in them.)
Hearing devices may also be measured for immunity to this type of interference.
Your hearing device manufacturer or hearing health professional may help you find
results for your hearing device. The more immune your hearing aid is, the less likely
you are to experience interference noise from mobile phones.
Information from the World Health
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.

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
• Monitor access—Keep your mobile device with you and do not leave it where
others may have unmonitored access. Lock your device’s keypad where this
feature is available.
• 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 available).
• 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
Privacy & Data Security
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.
Smart Practices While Driving
Driving Safety
Drive Safe, Call Smart
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. 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 and redial. 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 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).
