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 mobile device or battery come into contact with water.*
Water can get into the mobile device’s circuits, leading to corrosion. If the mobile
device 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
jewellery, stay in prolonged contact with the battery contact points, the battery
could become very hot.
• Don’t place your mobile device or battery near a heat source.* Excessive
heat can damage the mobile device or the battery. High temperatures can cause
the battery to swell, leak or malfunction. Therefore:
• Don’t dry a wet or damp battery with an appliance or heat source, such as
a hair dryer or microwave oven.
• Do avoid leaving your mobile device in your car in high temperatures.*
• Do avoid dropping the battery or mobile device.* Dropping these items,
especially on a hard surface, can potentially cause damage.*
• Do contact your service provider or Motorola if your mobile device or
battery has been damaged by being dropped or by high temperatures.
* Note: Always make sure that 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),
Battery use & safety
Motorola provides holograms on its batteries. Consumers should confirm that any
battery they purchase has a "Motorola Original" hologram.
Motorola recommends that 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 try charging it again;
• If the message remains, contact a Motorola authorised service centre.
Important: Motorola’s warranty does not cover damage to the mobile device 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

Radio frequency (RF) energy
Exposure to RF energy
Your mobile device contains a transmitter and receiver. When it is ON, it receives
and transmits RF energy. When you communicate using your mobile device, the
system handling your call controls the power level at which your mobile device
Your mobile device is designed to comply with local regulatory requirements in your
country concerning exposure of human beings to RF energy.
RF energy operational precautions
For optimal mobile device performance, and to be sure that human exposure to RF
energy does not exceed the guidelines set forth in the relevant standards, always
follow these instructions and precautions:
• When placing or receiving a phone call, hold your mobile device just like you
would a landline phone.
• If you wear the mobile device on your body, always place the mobile device in a
Motorola-supplied or approved clip, holder, holster, case or body harness. If you
do not use a body-worn accessory supplied or approved by Motorola, keep the
mobile device and its antenna at least 2.5 centimetres (1 inch) from your body
when transmitting.
• Using accessories not supplied or approved by Motorola may cause your mobile
device to exceed RF energy exposure guidelines. For a list of Motorola-supplied
or approved accessories, visit our website at:
RF energy interference/compatibility
Nearly every electronic device is subject to RF energy interference from external
sources if inadequately shielded, designed or otherwise configured for RF energy
compatibility. In some circumstances, your mobile device may cause interference
with other devices.
Follow instructions to avoid interference problems
Turn off your mobile device in any location where posted notices instruct you to do
In an aircraft, turn off your mobile device whenever instructed to do so by airline
staff. If your mobile device offers flight mode or a similar feature, consult airline
staff about using it in-flight.
Implantable medical devices
If you have an implantable medical device, such as a pacemaker or defibrillator,
consult your doctor before using this mobile device.
Persons with implantable medical devices should observe the following precautions:
• ALWAYS keep the mobile device more than 20 centimetres (8 inches) from the
implantable medical device when the mobile device is turned ON.
• DO NOT carry the mobile device in the breast pocket.
• Use the ear opposite the implantable medical device to minimise the potential
for interference.
• Turn OFF the mobile device immediately if you have any reason to suspect that
interference is taking place.
Read and follow the directions from the manufacturer of your implantable medical

implantable medical device, consult your health care provider.
Specific absorption rate (ICNIRP)
Your model wireless phone meets international
guidelines for exposure to radio waves.
Your mobile device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed not to exceed
the limits for exposure to radio waves recommended by international guidelines.
These guidelines were developed by the independent scientific organisation ICNIRP
and include safety margins designed to assure the protection of all persons,
regardless of age and health, and to account for any variations in measurements.
The guidelines use a unit of measurement known as the Specific absorption rate
(SAR). The ICNIRP SAR limit for mobile devices used by the general public is 2 watts
per kilogram (W/kg), and the highest SAR value for this mobile device when tested at
the ear is 1.18 W/kg. As mobile devices offer a range of functions, they can be used in
other positions, such as on the body as described in this guide. In this case, the
highest tested SAR value is 0.58 W/kg. The tests are carried out in accordance with
international guidelines for testing. The SAR information includes the Motorola testing
protocol, assessment procedure and measurement uncertainty range for this product.
As SAR is measured utilising the mobile device's highest transmitting power, the
actual SAR of this mobile device while operating is typically below that indicated
above. This is due to automatic changes to the power level of the mobile device to
ensure it only uses the minimum level required to reach the network.
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.
The World Health Organisation has stated that present scientific information does
not indicate the need for any special precautions for the use of mobile devices. They
note that if you want to reduce your exposure, then you can do so by limiting the
length of calls or using a hands-free device to keep the mobile device away from the
head and body.
Additional Information can be found on the websites of the World Health
Organisation ( or Motorola Mobility, Inc.

When you make an emergency call, the mobile 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.
When using navigation features, note that mapping information, directions and
other navigational data may contain inaccurate or incomplete data. In some
countries, complete information may not be available. Therefore, you should visually
confirm that the navigational instructions are consistent with what you see. All
drivers should pay attention to road conditions, closures, traffic and all other factors
that may impact driving. Always obey posted road signs.
Smart practices while driving
Driving safety
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 may be required. 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, redial and voice dial. If available, these features help you to place your
call without taking your attention off the road.
• When available, use a hands-free device. If possible, add an additional
layer of convenience to your mobile device with one of the many
Motorola original hands-free accessories available today.
• Position your mobile device within easy reach. Be able to access your
mobile device without taking your eyes off 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 to 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 to 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 999 or another 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 a road
accident, crime in progress or other serious emergency where lives are in danger,
call 999 or another 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 another special non-emergency wireless number (wherever
wireless phone service is available).
Privacy & data security
Motorola understands that privacy and data security are important to everyone.
Given that 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 back up your personal data to
transfer to a new device.
Note: For information on how to back up 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
Privacy & data security
account and how to use security features such as remote wipe and device
location (where available).
• Applications—Install third party applications from trusted sources only.
Applications can have access to private information such as call data, location
details and network resources.
• Location-based information—Location-based information includes
information that can be used to determine the approximate location of a mobile
device. Mobile phones that 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.
• 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.
Use & care
Your mobile device is designed to resist damage from exposure to certain rugged
conditions, as stated in your product information. However, to help care for your
mobile device, avoid prolonged or extreme exposure to those conditions and please
observe the following:
Use & care
To help protect your mobile device, always make sure that the battery
compartment and any connector covers are closed and secure.
Don’t try to dry your mobile device using a microwave oven,
conventional oven or dryer, as this may damage the mobile device.
To clean your phone, use only a dry soft cloth. Do not use alcohol or
other cleaning solutions.
Mobile devices & accessories
Please do not dispose of mobile devices or electrical accessories (such as chargers,
headsets or batteries) with your household waste or in a fire. These items should be
disposed of in accordance with the national collection and recycling schemes
operated by your local or regional authority. Alternatively, you may return unwanted
mobile devices and electrical accessories to any Motorola approved service centre
in your region. Details of Motorola-approved national recycling schemes and further
information on Motorola recycling activities can be found at:
Packaging & product guides
Product packaging and product guides should only be disposed of in accordance with
national collection and recycling requirements. Please contact your regional
authorities for more details.
