Safety and General
Information
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON SAFE AND EFFICIENT
OPERATION. READ THIS INFORMATION BEFORE USING YOUR
PHONE.
RF Operational Characteristics
Your phone contains a transmitter and a receiver. When it is ON,
it receives and transmits radio frequency (RF) energy. The phone
operates in the frequency range of 824 MHz to 849 MHz in
analog and digital mode and 1851.25 MHz to 1908.75 MHz in
digital mode.
When you communicate with your phone, the system handling
your call controls the power levels at which your phone
transmits. The output power level typically may vary over a range
from 0.05 watts to 0.44 watts in analog mode and 0.0 watts to
0.24 watts in digital mode.
Exposure To Radio Frequency Energy
Your Motorola phone is designed to comply with the following
national and international standards and guidelines regarding
exposure of human beings to radio frequency electromagnetic
energy (EME):
• United States Federal Communications Commission, Code
of Regulations; 47 CFR part 2 sub-part J
• American National Standards Institute (ANSI) / Institute of
Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) C95. 1-1992
10
User.Guide.Tarpon.book Page 11 Thursday, April 26, 2001 2:23 PM
Safety and General Information
• Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE)
C95.1-1999 Edition
• National Council on Radiation Protection and
Measurements (NCRP) of the United States, Report 86,
1986
• International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation
Protection (ICNIRP) 1998
• Ministry of Health (Canada) Safety Code 6. Limits of Human
Exposure to Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Fields in the
Frequency Range from 3 kHz to 300 GHz, 1999
• Australian Communications Authority
Radiocommunications (Electromagnetic Radiation-Human
Exposure) Standard 1999
To assure optimal phone performance and make sure human
exposure to radio frequency electromagnetic energy is within the
guidelines set forth in the above standards, always adhere to the
following procedures:
Portable Phone Operation and EME
Exposure
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.
11
User.Guide.Tarpon.book Page 12 Thursday, April 26, 2001 2:23 PM
Safety and General Information
Do NOT hold the antenna when the phone is in use.
Holding the antenna affects call quality and may cause the
phone to operate at a higher power level than needed.
Phone Operation
When placing or receiving a phone call, hold your phone as you
would a wireline telephone. Speak directly into the
microphone.
Body-Worn Operation
To maintain compliance with FCC RF exposure guidelines, if you
wear a phone on your body when transmitting, always place the
phone in a Motorola-supplied or approved clip, holder,
holster, case, or body harness for this product. Use of
non-Motorola-approved accessories may exceed FCC RF
exposure guidelines. If you do not use a body-worn
accessory, and are not holding the phone in the normal
use position at the ear, ensure the phone and its
antenna are at least one inch (2.5 centimeters) from
your body when transmitting.
Data Operation
When using any data feature of the phone, with or without an
accessory cable, position the phone and its antenna at
least one inch (2.5 centimeters) from your body.
Approved Accessories
For a list of approved Motorola accessories, visit our website at

Safety and General Information
Electromagnetic Interference/
Compatibility
Note: Nearly every electronic device is susceptible to
electromagnetic interference (EMI) if inadequately shielded,
designed, or otherwise configured for electromagnetic
compatibility.
Facilities
To avoid electromagnetic interference and/or compatibility
conflicts, turn off your phone in any facility where posted notices
instruct you to do so. Hospitals or health care facilities may be
using equipment that is sensitive to external RF energy.
Aircraft
When instructed to do so, turn off your phone when on board an
aircraft. Any use of a phone must be in accordance with
applicable regulations per airline crew instructions.
Medical Devices
Pacemakers
The Advanced Medical Technology Association recommends that
a minimum separation of 6 inches (15 centimeters) be
maintained between a handheld wireless phone and a
pacemaker. These recommendations are consistent with the
independent research by, and recommendations of, the United
States Food and Drug Administration.
13
User.Guide.Tarpon.book Page 14 Thursday, April 26, 2001 2:23 PM
Safety and General Information
Persons with pacemakers should:
• ALWAYS keep the phone more than six inches
(15 centimeters) from your pacemaker when the phone is
turned ON.
• NOT carry the phone in the breast pocket.
• use the ear opposite the pacemaker to minimize the
potential for interference.
• turn OFF the phone immediately if you have 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 hearing aid manufacturer 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 RF energy. Your physician may be able to assist
you in obtaining this information.
Safety and General
Use While Driving
Check the laws and regulations on the use of phones in the area
where you drive. Always obey them.
When using your phone while driving, please:
• give full attention to driving and to the road.
14
User.Guide.Tarpon.book Page 15 Thursday, April 26, 2001 2:23 PM
Safety and General Information
• use hands-free operation, if available.
• pull off the road and park before making or answering a
call if driving conditions so require.
Operational Warnings
For Vehicles With an Air Bag
Do not place a portable phone in the area over an air bag or in
the air bag deployment area. Air bags inflate with great force. If
a portable phone is placed in the air bag deployment area and
the air bag inflates, the phone may be propelled with great force
and cause serious injury to occupants of the vehicle.
Potentially Explosive Atmospheres
Turn off your phone prior to entering any area with a potentially
explosive atmosphere, unless the phone is a model specifically
identified as being “Intrinsically Safe.” Do not remove, install, or
charge batteries in such areas. Sparks in a potentially explosive
atmosphere can cause an explosion or fire resulting in bodily
injury or even death.
Note: The areas with potentially explosive atmospheres referred
to above include fueling areas such as below decks on boats,
fuel or chemical transfer or storage facilities, 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. Areas with potentially
explosive atmospheres are often but not always posted.
15
User.Guide.Tarpon.book Page 16 Thursday, April 26, 2001 2:23 PM
Safety and General Information
Blasting Caps and Areas
To avoid possible interference with blasting operations, turn OFF
your phone when you are near electrical blasting caps, in a
blasting area, or in areas posted: “Turn off two-way radio.” Obey
all signs and instructions.
Operational Cautions
Antennas
Do not use any portable phone that has a damaged
antenna. If a damaged antenna comes into contact with your
skin, a minor burn can result.
Batteries
All batteries can cause property damage and/or bodily injury
such as burns if a conductive material such as jewelry, keys, or
beaded chains touches exposed terminals. The conductive
material may complete an electrical circuit (short circuit) and
become quite hot. Exercise care in handling any charged battery,
particularly when placing it inside a pocket, purse, or other
container with metal objects.

Battery Use
Caution: To prevent injuries or burns, do not allow metal

To maximize your battery’s performance:
• Always use Motorola approved batteries and battery
chargers. The phone warranty does not cover damage

User.Guide.Tarpon.book Page 26 Thursday, April 26, 2001 2:23 PM
About Your Phone
caused from using non-Motorola batteries and/or battery
chargers.
• New batteries or batteries that have been stored for long
periods of time may require a longer charge time.
• Maintain the battery at or near room temperature when
charging.
• Do not expose batteries to temperatures below -10°C
(14°F) or above 45°C (113°F). Always take your phone with
you when you leave your vehicle.
• When you do not intend to use a battery for a while, store it
uncharged in a cool, dark, dry place, such as a refrigerator.
• Over extended periods of time, batteries gradually wear
down and require longer charging times. This is normal. If
you charge your battery regularly and notice a decrease in
talk time or an increase in charging time, then it is probably
time to purchase a new battery.
• The more you talk on the phone or use phone features (like
sending text messages), the less standby time your battery
has.
The rechargeable batteries that power this product
must be disposed of properly and may need to be
recycled. Refer to your battery’s label for battery type.
Contact your local recycling center for proper disposal methods.
Never dispose of batteries in a fire because they may explode.

Specific Absorption Rate
Data
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.1 Tests for SAR are
conducted using standard operating positions reviewed 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 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.
91
User.Guide.Tarpon.book Page 92 Thursday, April 26, 2001 2:23 PM
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 and worn on the body) as required by the FCC
for each model. The highest SAR value for this model phone
when tested for use at the ear is 1.55 W/kg2, and when worn on
the body, as described in this user guide, is 1.41 W/kg.2
(Body-worn measurements differ among phone models,
depending upon available accessories and FCC requirements).
While there may be differences between the SAR levels of
various phones and at various positions, they all meet the
government requirement.
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this model
phone with all reported SAR levels evaluated as in compliance
with the FCC RF exposure 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 IHDT56AL1.
1. 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.
2. The SAR information provided to the FCC includes the FCC-accepted
Motorola testing protocol, assessment procedure, and measurement
uncertainty range for this product.

The U.S. Food and Drug
Administration's Center for Devices
and Radiological Health Consumer
Update on Mobile PhonesFDA Update
FDA has been receiving inquiries about the safety of mobile
phones, including cellular phones and PCS phones. The following
summarizes what is known—and what remains unknown—
about whether these products can pose a hazard to health, and
what can be done to minimize any potential risk. This
information may be used to respond to questions.
Why the concern?
Mobile phones emit low levels of radio frequency energy (i.e.,
radio frequency radiation) in the microwave range while being
used. They also emit very low levels of radio frequency energy
(RF), considered non-significant, when in the stand-by mode. It
is well known that high levels of RF can produce biological
damage through heating effects (this is how your microwave
oven is able to cook food). However, it is not known whether, to
what extent, or through what mechanism, lower levels of RF
might cause adverse health effects as well. Although some
research has been done to address these questions, no clear
picture of the biological effects of this type of radiation has
emerged to date. Thus, the available science does not allow us to
conclude that mobile phones are absolutely safe, or that they are
unsafe. However, the available scientific evidence does not
demonstrate any adverse health effects associated with the use
of mobile phones.
93
User.Guide.Tarpon.book Page 94 Thursday, April 26, 2001 2:23 PM
What kinds of phones are in question?
Questions have been raised about hand-held mobile phones, the
kind that have a built-in antenna that is positioned close to the
user's head during normal telephone conversation. These types
of mobile phones are of concern because of the short distance
between the phone's antenna—the primary source of the RF—
and the person's head. The exposure to RF from mobile phones
in which the antenna is located at greater distances from the
user (on the outside of a car, for example) is drastically lower
than that from hand-held phones, because a person's RF
exposure decreases rapidly with distance from the source. The
safety of so-called “cordless phones,” which have a base unit
connected to the telephone wiring in a house and which operate
at far lower power levels and frequencies, has not been
questioned.
How much evidence is there that hand-held mobile
phones might be harmful?
Briefly, there is not enough evidence to know for sure, either
way; however, research efforts are on-going. The existing
scientific evidence is conflicting and many of the studies that
have been done to date have suffered from flaws in their
research methods. Animal experiments investigating the effects
of RF exposures characteristic of mobile phones have yielded
conflicting results. A few animal studies, however, have
suggested that low levels of RF could accelerate the
development of cancer in laboratory animals. In one study, mice
genetically altered to be predisposed to developing one type of
cancer developed more than twice as many such cancers when
they were exposed to RF energy compared to controls. There is
much uncertainty among scientists about whether results
obtained from animal studies apply to the use of mobile phones.
94
User.Guide.Tarpon.book Page 95 Thursday, April 26, 2001 2:23 PM
First, it is uncertain how to apply the results obtained in rats and
mice to humans. Second, many of the studies that showed
increased tumor development used animals that had already
been treated with cancer-causing chemicals, and other studies
exposed the animals to the RF virtually continuously—up to 22
hours per day.
For the past five years in the United States, the mobile phone
industry has supported research into the safety of mobile
phones. This research has resulted in two findings in particular
that merit additional study:
1 In a hospital-based, case-control study, researchers looked
for an association between mobile phone use and either
glioma (a type of brain cancer) or acoustic neuroma (a
benign tumor of the nerve sheath). No statistically
significant association was found between mobile phone
use and acoustic neuroma. There was also no association
between mobile phone use and gliomas when all types of
types of gliomas were considered together. It should be
noted that the average length of mobile phone exposure in
this study was less than three years.
When 20 types of glioma were considered separately,
however, an association was found between mobile phone
use and one rare type of glioma, neuroepithelliomatous
tumors. It is possible with multiple comparisons of the same
sample that this association occurred by chance. Moreover,
the risk did not increase with how often the mobile phone
was used, or the length of the calls. In fact, the risk actually
decreased with cumulative hours of mobile phone use.
Most cancer causing agents increase risk with increased
exposure. An ongoing study of brain cancers by the
95
User.Guide.Tarpon.book Page 96 Thursday, April 26, 2001 2:23 PM
National Cancer Institute is expected to bear on the
accuracy and repeatability of these results.1
2 Researchers conducted a large battery of laboratory tests to
assess the effects of exposure to mobile phone RF on
genetic material. These included tests for several kinds of
abnormalities, including mutations, chromosomal
aberrations, DNA strand breaks, and structural changes in
the genetic material of blood cells called lymphocytes. None
of the tests showed any effect of the RF except for the
micronucleus assay, which detects structural effects on the
genetic material. The cells in this assay showed changes
after exposure to simulated cell phone radiation, but only
after 24 hours of exposure. It is possible that exposing the
test cells to radiation for this long resulted in heating. Since
this assay is known to be sensitive to heating, heat alone
could have caused the abnormalities to occur. The data
already in the literature on the response of the
micronucleus assay to RF are conflicting. Thus, follow-up
research is necessary.2
FDA is currently working with government, industry, and
academic groups to ensure the proper follow-up to these
industry-funded research findings. Collaboration with the
Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association (CTIA) in
particular is expected to lead to FDA providing research
recommendations and scientific oversight of new CTIA-funded
research based on such recommendations.
Two other studies of interest have been reported recently in the
literature:
1 Two groups of 18 people were exposed to simulated mobile
phone signals under laboratory conditions while they
96
User.Guide.Tarpon.book Page 97 Thursday, April 26, 2001 2:23 PM
performed cognitive function tests. There were no changes
in the subjects' ability to recall words, numbers, or pictures,
or in their spatial memory, but they were able to make
choices more quickly in one visual test when they were
exposed to simulated mobile phone signals. This was the
only change noted among more than 20 variables
compared.3
2 In a study of 209 brain tumor cases and 425 matched
controls, there was no increased risk of brain tumors
associated with mobile phone use. When tumors did exist in
certain locations, however, they were more likely to be on
the side of the head where the mobile phone was used.
Because this occurred in only a small number of cases, the
increased likelihood was too small to be statistically
significant.4
In summary, we do not have enough information at this point to
assure the public that there are, or are not, any low incident
health problems associated with use of mobile phones. FDA
continues to work with all parties, including other federal
agencies and industry, to assure that research is undertaken to
provide the necessary answers to the outstanding questions
about the safety of mobile phones.
What is known about cases of human cancer that
have been reported in users of hand-held mobile
phones?
Some people who have used mobile phones have been
diagnosed with brain cancer. But it is important to understand
that this type of cancer also occurs among people who have not
used mobile phones. In fact, brain cancer occurs in the U.S.
population at a rate of about 6 new cases per 100,000 people
97
User.Guide.Tarpon.book Page 98 Thursday, April 26, 2001 2:23 PM
each year. At that rate, assuming 80 million users of mobile
phones (a number increasing at a rate of about 1 million per
month), about 4800 cases of brain cancer would be expected
each year among those 80 million people, whether or not they
used their phones. Thus it is not possible to tell whether any
individual's cancer arose because of the phone, or whether it
would have happened anyway. A key question is whether the
risk of getting a particular form of cancer is greater among
people who use mobile phones than among the rest of the
population. One way to answer that question is to compare the
usage of mobile phones among people with brain cancer with
the use of mobile phones among appropriately matched people
without brain cancer. This is called a case-control study. The
current case-control study of brain cancers by the National
Cancer Institute, as well as the follow-up research to be
sponsored by industry, will begin to generate this type of
information.
What is FDA's role concerning the safety of mobile
phones?
Under the law, FDA does not review the safety of radiationemitting consumer products such as mobile phones before
marketing, as it does with new drugs or medical devices.
However, the agency has authority to take action if mobile
phones are shown to emit radiation at a level that is hazardous
to the user. In such a case, FDA could require the manufacturers
of mobile phones to notify users of the health hazard and to
repair, replace or recall the phones so that the hazard no longer
exists.
Although the existing scientific data do not justify FDA
regulatory actions at this time, FDA has urged the mobile phone
98
User.Guide.Tarpon.book Page 99 Thursday, April 26, 2001 2:23 PM
industry to take a number of steps to assure public safety. The
agency has recommended that the industry:
• support needed research into possible biological effects of
RF of the type emitted by mobile phones
• design mobile phones in a way that minimizes any RF
exposure to the user that is not necessary for device
function
• cooperate in providing mobile phone users with the best
possible information on what is known about possible
effects of mobile phone use on human health
At the same time, FDA belongs to an interagency working group
of the federal agencies that have responsibility for different
aspects of mobile phone safety to ensure a coordinated effort at
the federal level. These agencies are:
• National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health
• Environmental Protection Agency
• Federal Communications Commission
• Occupational Health and Safety Administration
• National Telecommunications and Information
Administration
The National Institutes of Health also participates in this group.
In the absence of conclusive information about any
possible risk, what can concerned individuals do?
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 people
are concerned about avoiding even potential risks, there are
simple steps they can take to do so. For example, time is a key
99
User.Guide.Tarpon.book Page 100 Thursday, April 26, 2001 2:23 PM
factor in how much exposure a person receives. Those persons
who spend long periods of time on their hand-held mobile
phones could consider holding lengthy conversations on
conventional phones and reserving the hand-held models for
shorter conversations or for situations when other types of
phones are not available.
People who must conduct extended conversations in their cars
every day could switch to a type of mobile phone that places
more distance between their bodies and the source of the RF,
since the exposure level drops off dramatically with distance. For
example, they could switch to:
• a mobile phone in which the antenna is located outside the
vehicle
• a hand-held phone with a built-in antenna connected to a
different antenna mounted on the outside of the car or built
into a separate package
• a headset with a remote antenna to a mobile phone carried
at the waist
Again, the scientific data do not demonstrate that mobile
phones are harmful. But if people are concerned about the radio
frequency energy from these products, taking the simple
precautions outlined above can reduce any possible risk.

Wireless Phone Safety Tips
“Safety is your most important call!”
Your Motorola wireless telephone gives you
the powerful ability to communicate by voice—
almost anywhere, anytime, wherever wireless
phone service is available and safe conditions allow.
But an important responsibility accompanies the
benefits of wireless phones, one that every user
must uphold.
When driving a car, driving is your first
responsibility. If you find it necessary to use your
wireless phone while behind the wheel of a car,
practice good common sense and remember the
following tips:
1 Get to know your Motorola wireless phone 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.
2 When available, use a hands-free device. If possible,
add an additional layer of convenience to your wireless
phone with one of the many Motorola Original™ hands-free
accessories available today.
119
User.Guide.Tarpon.book Page 120 Thursday, April 26, 2001 2:23 PM
4 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.
5 If you receive an incoming call at an inconvenient
time 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.
6 Dial sensibly and assess the traffic; if possible, place
calls when you are not moving or before pulling into
traffic. Try to plan calls when your car will be stationary. If
you need to make a call while moving, 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. Make people
you are talking with aware you are driving and suspend
conversations which have the potential to divert your
attention away from the road.
8 Use your wireless phone to call for help. Dial 9-1-1 or
other local emergency number in the case of fire, traffic
accident or medical emergencies.*
120
✂
3 Position your wireless phone within easy reach. Be
able to access your wireless phone without removing your
eyes from the road. If you receive an incoming call at an
inconvenient time, if possible, let your voice mail answer it
for you.
User.Guide.Tarpon.book Page 121 Thursday, April 26, 2001 2:23 PM
✂
9 Use your wireless phone to help others in
emergencies. If you see an auto accident, crime in progress
or other serious emergency where lives are in danger, call
9-1-1 or other local emergency number, as you would want
others to do for you.*
10 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.

areas where you drive. Always obey them. The

restricted in certain areas.
