Battery information
This product uses a Lithium-ion battery. Do not use it in a humid, wet and/or corrosive
environment. Do not put, store or leave your product in or near a heat source, in a high
temperature location, in strong direct sunlight, in a microwave oven or in a pressurized
container, and do not expose it to temperatures over 60 °C (140 °F). Failure to follow these
48
guidelines may cause the battery to leak acid, become hot, explode or ignite and cause injury
and/or damage. Do not pierce, open or disassemble the battery. If the battery leaks and you
come into contact with the leaked fluids, rinse thoroughly with water and seek medical
attention immediately. For safety reasons, and to prolong the lifetime of the battery, charging
will not occur at low (below 0° C/32° F) or high (over 40° C/104° F) temperatures.
The full performance of a new battery is achieved only after two or three complete charge and
discharge cycles. The battery can be charged and discharged hundreds of times, but it will
eventually wear out. When the talk and standby times are noticeably shorter than normal, buy
a new battery. Use only Acer approved batteries, and recharge your battery only with Acer
approved chargers designated for this device.
Unplug the charger from the electrical plug and the device when not in use. Do not leave a
fully charged battery connected to the ac charger, since overcharging may shorten its lifetime.
If left unused, a fully charged battery will lose its charge over time. If the battery is completely
discharged, it may take a few minutes before the charging indicator appears on the display or
before any calls can be made.
Use the battery only for its intended purpose. Never use any charger or battery that is
damaged.
Do not short-circuit the battery. Accidental short-circuiting can occur when a metallic object
such as a coin, clip, or pen causes direct connection of the positive (+) and negative (-)
terminals of the battery. (These look like metal strips on the battery.) This might happen, for
example, when you carry a spare battery in your pocket or purse. Short-circuiting the
terminals may damage the battery or the connecting object.
Leaving the battery in hot or cold places, such as in a closed car in summer or winter
conditions, will reduce the capacity and lifetime of the battery. Always try to keep the battery
between 15° C and 25° C (59° F and 77° F). A device with a hot or cold battery may not work
temporarily, even when the battery is fully charged. Battery performance is particularly limited
in temperatures well below freezing.
Do not dispose of batteries in a fire as they may explode. Batteries may also explode if
damaged. Dispose of batteries according to local regulations. Please recycle when possible.
Do not dispose as household waste.
Replacing the battery pack
Your smartphone uses lithium batteries. Replace the battery with the same type as that which
came bundled with your product. Use of another battery may present a risk of fire or
explosion.
Warning! Batteries may explode if not handled properly. Do not disassemble or
dispose of them in fire. Keep them away from children. Follow local regulations
when disposing of used batteries.
Additional safety information
Your device and its enhancements may contain small parts. Keep them out of the reach of
small children.
49

Warning! For safety reasons, turn off all wireless or radio transmitting devices when
using your smartphone device under the following conditions. These devices may
include, but are not limited to: wireless LAN (WLAN), Bluetooth and/or 3G.
Remember to follow any special regulations in force in any area, and always switch off your
device when its use is prohibited or when it may cause interference or danger. Use the device
only in its normal operating positions. To successfully transmit data files or messages, this
device requires a good quality connection to the network. In some cases, transmission of data
files or messages may be delayed until such a connection is available. Ensure that the above
separation distance instructions are followed until the transmission is completed. Parts of the
device are magnetic. Metallic materials may be attracted to the device, and persons with
hearing aids should not hold the device to the ear with the hearing aid. Do not place credit
cards or other magnetic storage media near the device, because information stored on them
may be erased.
Medical devices
Operation of any radio transmitting equipment, including wireless phones, may interfere with
the functionality of inadequately protected medical devices. Consult a physician or the
manufacturer of the medical device to determine if they are adequately shielded from external
RF energy or if you have any questions. Switch off your device in health care facilities when
any regulations posted in these areas instruct you to do so. Hospitals or health care facilities
may be using equipment that could be sensitive to external RF transmissions.
Pacemakers. Pacemaker manufacturers recommend that a minimum separation of 15.3 cm
(6") be maintained between wireless devices 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
do the following:
• Always keep the device more than 15.3 cm (6") from the pacemaker.
• Not carry the device near your pacemaker when the device is switched on. If you
suspect interference, switch off your device, and move it.
Hearing aids. Some digital wireless devices may interfere with some hearing aids. If
interference occurs, consult your service provider.
Vehicles
RF signals may affect improperly installed or inadequately shielded electronic systems in
motor vehicles such as electronic fuel injection systems, electronic anti-skid (anti-lock)
braking systems, electronic speed control systems, and air bag systems. For more
information, check with the manufacturer, or its representative, of your vehicle or any
equipment that has been added. Only qualified personnel should service the device, or install
the device in a vehicle. Faulty installation or service may be dangerous and may invalidate any
warranty that may apply to the device. Check regularly that all wireless equipment in your
vehicle is mounted and operating properly. Do not store or carry flammable liquids, gases, or
explosive materials in the same compartment as the device, its parts, or enhancements. For
vehicles equipped with an air bag, remember that air bags inflate with great force. Do not
place objects, including 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. Using your device while flying in aircraft is
50
prohibited. Switch off your device before boarding an aircraft. The use of wireless teledevices
in an aircraft may be dangerous to the operation of the aircraft, disrupt the wireless telephone
network, and may be illegal.
Potentially explosive environments
Switch off your device when in any area with a potentially explosive atmosphere and obey all
signs and instructions. Potentially explosive atmospheres include areas where you would
normally be advised to turn off your vehicle engine. Sparks in such areas could cause an
explosion or fire resulting in bodily injury or even death. Switch off the device at refueling
points such as near gas pumps at service stations. Observe restrictions on the use of radio
equipment in fuel depots, storage, and distribution areas; chemical plants; or where blasting
operations are in progress. Areas with a potentially explosive atmospheres are often, but not
always, clearly marked. They include below deck on boats, chemical transfer or storage
facilities, vehicles using liquefied petroleum gas (such as propane or butane), and areas where
the air contains chemicals or particles such as grain, dust or metal powders.
Follow any restrictions. Do not use the device where blasting is in progress.
Emergency calls
Important: Wireless phones, including this device, operate using radio signals, wireless
networks, landline networks, and user-programmed functions. Because of this, connections
in all conditions cannot be guaranteed. You should never rely solely on any wireless device for
essential communications like medical emergencies.

FCC regulations
This mobile phone 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.
This mobile phone has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class
B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to
provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential
installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy
and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause
harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that
interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause
harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by
turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the
interference by one or more of the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to
which the receiver is connected.
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for
compliance could void the user's authority to operate the equipment.
RF exposure warning
The equipment complies with FCC RF exposure limits set forth for an uncontrolled
environment.
The antenna(s) used for this transmitter must not be co-located or operating in
conjunction with any other antenna or transmitter.
RF exposure information (SAR)
This mobile phone meets the government's requirements for exposure to radio
waves.
This phone 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.
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 accepted by the
FCC 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
58
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.
The highest SAR value for US model phones as reported to the FCC when tested
for use at the ear is 0.994 W/kg and when worn on the body, as described in this
user guide, is 1.29 W/kg.
Important: Body-worn measurements differ among phone models, depending upon
available enhancements and FCC requirements.
While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various phones and at
various positions, they all meet the government requirements.
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this model of phone with all
reported SAR levels evaluated as in compliance with the FCC RF exposure
guidelines. SAR information on this model of phone is on file with the FCC and can
be found under the Display Grant section of www.fcc.gov/oet/ea/fccid after
searching on FCC ID:
HLZDME320NFC (for US models).
For body worn operation, this phone has been tested and meets the FCC RF
exposure guidelines for use with accessories that contain no metal and that
position the handset a minimum of 1 cm from the body. Use of other accessories
may not ensure compliance with FCC RF exposure guidelines. If you do not use a
body-worn accessory and are not holding the phone at the ear, position the
handset a minimum of 1 cm from your body when the phone is switched on.
Certificate Information (SAR)
This device meets the EU requirements (1999/519/EC) on the limitation of exposure
of the general public to electromagnetic fields by way of health protection.
The limits are part of extensive recommendations for the protection of the general
public. These recommendations have been developed and checked by
independent scientific organizations through regular and thorough evaluations of
scientific studies. To guarantee the safety of all persons, regardless of age and
health, the limits include a significant safety buffer.
Before radio devices can be put in circulation, their agreement with European laws
or limits must be confirmed; only then may the CE symbol be applied.
The unit of measurement for the European Council's recommended limit for mobile
telephones is the "Specific Absorption Rate" (SAR). This SAR limit is 2.0 W/kg,
averaged over 10 g of body tissue. It meets the requirements of the International
Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) and was included in the
European Standard EN 50360 for mobile radio devices. The SAR regulation for
mobile telephones is in line with European Standard EN 62209-1. The maximum
SAR value is calculated at the highest output level in all frequency bands of the
mobile telephone.
For body worn operation, this phone (EU model) has been tested and meets the
ICNIRP exposure guidelines, and was included in the European Standard EN 62311
and EN 62209-2 for use with accessories that contain no metal and that position
59
the handset a minimum of 1.5 cm from the body. Use of other accessories may not
ensure compliance with ICNIRP exposure guidelines. If you do not use a body-worn
accessory and are not holding the phone at the ear, position the handset a
minimum of 1.5 cm from your body when the phone is switched on.
During use, the actual SAR level is usually much lower than the maximum value,
because the mobile telephone works in different output levels. It only transmits with
as much output as is required to reach the network. In general the following applies:
The closer you are to a base station, the lower the transmission output of your
mobile telephone. The tested SAR of this device is as follows:

Using your phone with a hearing aid device 
(US models)
Your device is compliant with the FCC Hearing Aid Compatibility (HAC)
requirements. When 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 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
have been rated have a label on the box. Your device has been tested for hearing
aid device compatibility and has a M3 rating.
These ratings are not guarantees. Results will vary, depending on the level of
immunity of your hearing device and the degree of your 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 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 with 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.
Important: This device does not support VoIP. WLAN and Bluetooth do not have
voice capability for held-to-the-ear phone service.
Note: Not all hearing devices contain telecoils.
60
The more immune your hearing aid device is, the less likely you are to experience
interference noise from your wireless phone. Hearing aid devices should have
ratings similar to those of phones. Ask your hearing health-care professional for the
rating of your hearing aid.
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 wireless devices.
For additional information about the FCC's actions with regard to hearing aid
compatible wireless devices and other steps the FCC has taken to ensure that
individuals with disabilities have access to telecommunications services, please go
