Safety and use..............................
We recommend that you read this chapter carefully before using your mobile phone.
The manufacturer disclaims any liability for damage, which may result as a consequence
of improper use or use contrary to the instructions contained herein.
• TRAFFIC SAFETY:
Given that studies show that using a mobile phone while driving a vehicle constitutes
a real risk, even when the hands-free kit is used (car kit, headset...), drivers are
requested to refrain from using their mobile phone when the vehicle is not parked.
Check the laws and regulations on the use of wireless mobile phones 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.
When driving, do not use your mobile phone and headphone to listen to music or to
the radio. Using a headphone can be dangerous and forbidden in some areas.
When switched on, your mobile phone emits electromagnetic waves that can
interfere with the vehicle’s electronic systems such as ABS anti-lock brakes or
airbags. To ensure that there is no problem:
- do not place your mobile phone on top of the dashboard or within an airbag
deployment area,
- check with your car dealer or the car manufacturer to make sure that the car’s
electronic devices are shielded from mobile phone RF energy.

Always handle your mobile phone with care and keep it in a clean and dust-free place.
Do not allow your mobile phone to be exposed to adverse weather or environmental
conditions (moisture, humidity, rain, infiltration of liquids, dust, sea air, etc.). The
manufacturer’s recommended operating temperature range is -10°C (14°F) to +55°C
(131°F) (the max value depends on device, materials and housing paint/texture).
Over 55°C (131°F) the legibility of the mobile phone’s display may be impaired,
though this is temporary and not serious.
Do not open or attempt to repair your mobile phone yourself.
Do not drop, throw or try to bend your mobile phone.
Do not use the mobile phone if the glass made screen, is damaged, cracked or broken
to avoid any injury.
Do not paint it.

TCT Mobile Limited and its affiliates and are compatible with your mobile phone
model. TCT Mobile Limited and its affiliates disclaim any liability for damage caused
by the use of other chargers or batteries.
Your mobile phone should not be disposed of in a municipal waste. Please check local
regulations for disposal of electronic products.
Remember to make back-up copies or keep a written record of all important
information stored in your mobile phone.
Some people may suffer epileptic seizures or blackouts when exposed to flashing
lights, or when playing video games. These seizures or blackouts may occur even if
a person never had a previous seizure or blackout. If you have experienced seizures
or blackouts, or if you have a family history of such occurrences, please consult your
doctor before playing video games on your mobile phone or enabling a flashing-
5
lights feature on your mobile phone. Parents should monitor their children’s use of
video games or other features that incorporate flashing lights on the mobile phones.
All persons should discontinue use and consult a doctor if any of the following
symptoms occur: convulsion, eye or muscle twitching, loss of awareness, involuntary
movements, or disorientation. To limit the likelihood of such symptoms, please take
the following safety precautions:
- Play at the farthest distance possible from the screen.
When you play games on your mobile phone, you may experience occasional discomfort
in your hands, arms, shoulders, neck, or other parts of your body. Follow these
instructions to avoid problems such as tendinitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, or other
musculoskeletal disorders:
- Take a minimum of a 15-minute break every hour of game playing.
- If your hands, wrists, or arms become tired or sore while playing, stop and rest
for several hours before playing again.
- If you continue to have sore hands, wrists, or arms during or after playing, stop the
game and see a doctor.
PROTECT YOUR HEARING
To prevent possible hearing damage, do not listen at high volume
levels for long periods. Exercise caution when holding your device
near your ear while the loudspeaker is in use.
• PRIVACY:
Please note that you must respect the laws and regulations in force in your
jurisdiction or other jurisdiction(s) where you will use your mobile phone regarding
taking photographs and recording sounds with your mobile phone. Pursuant to such
laws and regulations, it may be strictly forbidden to take photographs and/or to
record the voices of other people or any of their personal attributes, and reproduce
or distribute them, as this may be considered to be an invasion of privacy.
It is the user’s sole responsibility to ensure that prior authorization be obtained,
if necessary, in order to record private or confidential conversations or take a
photograph of another person; the manufacturer, the seller or vendor of your
mobile phone (including the operator) disclaim any liability which may result from
the improper use of the mobile phone.
• BATTERY AND ACCESSORIES:
Please note your phone is a unibody device, the back cover and battery are not
removable. Observe the following precautions:
- Do not attempt to open the back cover,
- Do not attempt to eject, replace and open battery,
- Do not punctuate the back cover of your phone,

THIS MOBILE PHONE MEETS THE GOVERNMENT’S REQUIREMENTS FOR
EXPOSURE TO RADIO WAVES.
Your mobile 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. 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. These guidelines include a substantial safety
margin designed to ensure the safety of all persons, regardless of age and health.
The exposure standard for mobile phones employs a unit of measurement known as
the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit set by public authorities such
as the Federal Communications Commission of the US Government (FCC), or by
Industry Canada, is 1.6 W/kg averaged over 1 gram of body tissue. Tests for SAR are
conducted using standard operating positions with the mobile 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 mobile phone while operating can be well below the maximum
value. This is because the mobile 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 of the mobile phone. Before a mobile phone model is available for sale to
the public, compliance with national regulations and standards must be shown.
The highest SAR value for this model mobile phone when tested is
0.94 W/Kg for use at the ear and 1.29 W/Kg for use close to the body.
While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various mobile phones and at
various positions, they all meet the government requirement for RF exposure. For bodyworn operation, the mobile phone meets FCC RF exposure guidelines provided that it
is used with a non-metallic accessory with the handset at least 1.0 cm from the body.
Use of other accessories may not ensure compliance with FCC RF exposure guidelines.
Additional information on SAR can be found on the Cellular Telecommunications &
Internet Association (CTIA) Web site: http://www.phonefacts.net
The World Health Organization (WHO) considers that present scientific information
does not indicate the need for any special precautions for use of mobile phones. If
individuals are concerned, they might choose to limit their own or their children’s
RF exposure by limiting the length of calls, or using “hands-free” devices to keep
mobile phones away from the head and body. (fact sheet n°193). Additional WHO
information about electromagnetic fields and public health are available on the
following website: http://www.who.int/peh-emf.
Note: This equipment 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 to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the
