Product Safety Information
RF Exposure
General Statement on RF energy
Your phone contains a transmitter and a receiver. When it is ON, it
receives and transmits RF energy. When you communicate with your
phone, the system handling your call controls the power level at which
your phone transmits.
Specific Absorption Rate (SAR)
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 ensure the protection of all persons, regardless of age
and health.
The guidelines use a unit of measurement known as the Specific
Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit for mobile devices is 2 W/kg
and the highest SAR value for this device when tested at the ear
was 0.65 W/kg (1). As mobile devices offer a range of functions, they
can be used in other positions, such as on the body as described
in this user guide.
As SAR is measured utilising the device’s highest transmitting
power, the actual SAR of this device while operating is typically
below that indicated above. This is due to automatic changes to the
power level of the device to ensure it only uses the minimum power
required to communicate with the network.
Body worn operation
Important safety information regarding radiofrequency radiation (RF)
To ensure compliance with RF exposure guidelines the phone must be
used with a minimum of 10 mm separation from the body.
Failure to observe these instructions could result in your RF exposure
exceeding the relevant guideline limits.
"The highest SAR value for this mobile phone when tested for use at
the body and compliance against the standard is 0.818 W/kg. While
there may be differences between the SAR levels on various phones
and at various positions, they all meet the relevant International
guidelines and EU requirements for RF (radio-waves) exposure"
Limiting exposure to radio frequency (RF) fields
For individuals concerned about limiting their exposure to RF fields, the
World Health Organisation (WHO) provides the following advice:
IP4464_VF875_QG_Eng_GB_31_130520.indd Sec1:27-Sec1:28
The tests are carried out in accordance with IEC standard PT62209-1.
2013-5-20 14:48:34
Precautionary measures: Present scientific information does not
indicate the need for any special precautions for the 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.
Further information on this subject can be obtained from the WHO
home page http://www.who.int/peh-emf WHO Fact sheet 193: June
Regulatory information
The following approvals and notices apply in specific regions as noted.
IP4464_VF875_QG_Eng_GB_31_130520.indd Sec1:29-Sec1:30
Full attention must be given to driving at all times in order to reduce
the risk of an accident. Using a phone while driving (even with a hands
free kit) causes distraction and can lead to an accident. You must
comply with local laws and regulations restricting the use of wireless
devices while driving.
Operating machinery
Full attention must be given to operating machinery in order to reduce
the risk of an accident.
Product Handling
General Statement on handling and use
You alone are responsible for how you use your phone and any
consequences of its use.
You must always switch off your phone wherever the use of a phone is
prohibited. Use of your phone is subject to safety measures designed
to protect users and their environment.
• Always treat your phone and its accessories with care and keep it in
a clean and dust-free place.
• Do not expose your phone or its accessories to open flames or lit
tobacco products.

General statement on interference
Care must be taken when using the phone in close proximity to
personal medical devices, such as pacemakers and hearing aids.
Pacemaker manufacturers recommend that a minimum separation of
15 cm be maintained between a mobile phone and a pacemaker to
avoid potential interference with the pacemaker. To achieve this use
the phone on the opposite ear to your pacemaker and do not carry it
in a breast pocket.
Hearing Aids
People with hearing aids or other cochlear implants may experience
interference noises when using wireless devices or when one is nearby.
The level of interference will depend on the type of hearing device and
the distance from the interference source, increasing the separation
between them may reduce the interference. You may also consult your
hearing aid manufacturer to discuss alternatives.
Medical devices
Please consult your doctor and the device manufacturer to determine
if operation of your phone may interfere with the operation of your
medical device.
Switch off your wireless device when requested to do so in hospitals,
clinics or health care facilities. These requests are designed to prevent
possible interference with sensitive medical equipment.
Switch off your wireless device whenever you are instructed to do so
by airport or airline staff.
Consult the airline staff about the use of wireless devices on board the
aircraft, if your device offers a ‘flight mode’ this must be enabled prior
to boarding an aircraft.
Interference in cars
Please note that because of possible interference to electronic
equipment, some vehicle manufacturers forbid the use of mobile
phones in their vehicles unless a handsfree kit with an external
antenna is included in the installation.

police or your operator if your telephone is stolen. This number allows
your mobile telephone to be blocked preventing a third person from
using it, even with a different SIM card.
