Handheld Portable Cellular Telephone
EXPOSURE TO RADIO FREQUENCY SIGNALS
Your wireless handheld portable telephone is a low power radio
transmitter and receiver. When it is ON, it receives and also sends
out radio frequency (RF) signals.
In August 1996, the Federal Communications Commissions (FCC)
adopted RF exposure guidelines with safety levels for handheld
wireless phones. Those guidelines are consistent with the safety
standards previously set by both U.S. and international standards
bodies:
ANSI C95.1 (1992) *
NCRP Report 86 (1986) *
ICNIRP (1996) *
Those standards were based on comprehensive and periodic
evaluations of the relevant scientific literature. For example, over
120 scientists, engineers, and physicians from universities,
government health agencies, and industry reviewed the available
body of research to develop the ANSI Standard (C951).
The design of your phone complies with the FCC guidelines (and
those standards).

In August 1996 the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) of
the United States with its action in Report and Order FCC 96-326
adopted an updated safety standard for human exposure to radio
frequency electromagnetic energy emitted by FCC regulated
transmitters. Those guidelines are consistent with the safety
standard previously set by both U.S. and international standards
bodies. The design of this phone complies with the FCC guidelines
and these international standards. Use only the supplied or an
approved antenna. Unauthorized antennas, modifications, or
attachments could impair call quality, damage the phone, or result
in violation of FCC regulations. Do not use the phone with a
damaged antenna. If a damaged antenna comes into contact with
the skin, a minor burn may result. Please contact your local dealer
for replacement antenna.
BODY-WORN OPERATION
This device was tested for typical body-worn operations with the
back of the phone kept 2.0 cm. from the body. To maintain
compliance with FCC RF exposure requirements, use only belt-clips,
holsters or similar accessories that maintain a 2.0 cm. separation
distance between the user’s body and the back of the phone,
including the antenna. The use of belt-clips, holsters and similar
accessories should not contain metallic components in its assembly.
The use of accessories that do not satisfy these requirements may
not comply with FCC RF exposure requirements, and should be
avoided.

SAFETY AND WARRANTY
SAR INFORMATION
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 radiofrequency (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. * Tests for SAR are
conducted 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.
SAR INFORMATION
SAFETY AND WARRANTY
The SAR testing for Body-worn operation was performed with a
belt clip that provided a 20mm separation. The User’s Manual
indicates that any holsters/clips used with this device should contain
no metallic components.
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
PP4TX-215.
Additional information on Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) can be
found on the Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association
(CTIA) web-site at http://www.wow-com.com.
* 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 sub-stantial margin of safety
to give additional protection for the public and to account for any
variations in measurements.
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 1.3 W/Kg and when worn on the body, as described
in this user guide, is 0.6W/Kg. (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 for safe exposure.

FCC HEARING-AID COMPATIBILITY
(HAC) REGULATIONS FOR
WIRELESS DEVICES
On July 10, 2003, the U.S. Federal Communications Commission
(FCC) Report and Order in WT Docket 01-309 modified the
exception of wireless phones under the Hearing Aid Compatibility
Act of 1988 (HAC Act) to require digital wireless phones be
compatible with hearing-aids. The intent of the HAC Act is to
ensure reasonable access to telecommunications services for persons
with hearing disabilities.
While 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 a rating system for
wireless phones, to assist hearing device users find phones that may
be compatible with their hearing devices. Not all phones have been
rated. Phones that are rated have the rating on their box or a label
located on the box.
The ratings are not guarantees. Results will vary depending on the
user’s hearing device and 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 to hearing devices than phones
that are not labeled. M4 is the better/higher of the two ratings.
FCC HEARING-AID COMPATIBILITY
(HAC) REGULATIONS FOR
WIRELESS DEVICES
SAFETY AND WARRANTY
In the above example, if a hearing aid meets the M2 level rating
and the wireless phone meets the M3 level rating, the sum of the
two values equal M5. This should provide the hearing aid user with
“normal usage” while using their hearing aid with the particular
wireless phone. “Normal usage” in this context is defined as a
signal quality that is acceptable for normal operation.
The M mark is intended to be synonymous with the U mark. The T
mark is intended to be synonymous with the UT mark. The M and T
marks are recommended by the Alliance for Telecommunications
Industries Solutions (ATIS). The U and UT marks are referenced in
Section 20.19 of the FCC Rules. The HAC rating and measurement
procedure are described in the American National Standards
Institute (ANSI) C63.19 standard.

Hearing devices may also be rated. Your
hearing device manufacturer or hearing
health professional may help you find this
rating. Higher ratings mean that the hearing
device is relatively immune to interference
noise. The hearing aid and wireless phone
rating values are then added together. A sum of 5 is considered
acceptable for normal use. A sum of 6 is considered for best use.

FDA CONSUMER UPDATE
U.S. Food and Drug Administration Center for Devices and Radiological Health
Consumer Update on Wireless Phones
1. Do wireless phones pose a health hazard?
The available scientific evidence does not show that any health problems
are associated with using wireless phones. There is no proof, however,
that wireless phones are absolutely safe. Wireless phones emit low levels
of radiofrequency energy (RF) in the microwave range while being used.
They also emit very low levels of RF when in the stand-by mode.
Whereas high levels of RF can produce health effects (by heating tissue),
exposure to low level RF that does not produce heating effects causes no
known adverse health effects. Many studies of low level RF exposures
have not found any biological effects. Some studies have suggested that
some biological effects may occur, but such findings have not been
confirmed by additional research. In some cases, other researchers have
had difficulty in reproducing those studies, or in determining the reasons
for inconsistent results.
2. What is FDA’s role concerning the safety of wireless phones?
Under the law, FDA does not review the safety of radiation-emitting
consumer products such as wireless phones before they can be sold, as it
does with new drugs or medical devices. However, the agency has
authority to take action if wireless phones are shown to emit
radiofrequency energy (RF) at a level that is hazardous to the user. In
such a case, FDA could require the manufacturers of wireless 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, FDA has urged the
wireless phone industry to take a number of steps, including the
following:
• Support needed research into possible biological effects of RF of the
type emitted by wireless phones;
• Design wireless phones in a way that minimizes any RF exposure to the
user that is not necessary for device function;
and
• Cooperate in providing users of wireless phones with the best possible
information on possible effects of wireless phone use on human
health.
102
FDA CONSUMER UPDATE
SAFETY AND WARRANTY
FDA belongs to an interagency working group of the federal agencies
that have responsibility for different aspects of RF safety to ensure
coordinated efforts at the federal level. The following agencies belong
to this working group:
• National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health
• Environmental Protection Agency
• Federal Communications Commission
• Occupational Safety and Health Administration
• National Telecommunications and Information Administration
The National Institutes of Health participates in some inter-agency
working group activities, as well. FDA shares regulatory responsibilities
for wireless phones with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).
All phones that are sold in the United States must comply with FCC
safety guidelines that limit RF exposure. FCC relies on FDA and other
health agencies for safety questions about wireless phones. FCC also
regulates the base stations that the wireless phone networks rely upon.
While these base stations operate at higher power than do the wireless
phones themselves, the RF exposures that people get from these base
stations are typically thousands of times lower than those they can get
from wireless phones. Base stations are thus not the subject of the safety
questions discussed in this document.
3. What kinds of phones are the subject of this update?
The term “wireless phone” refers here to hand-held wireless phones with
built-in antennas, often called “cell,” “mobile,” or “PCS” phones.
These types of wireless phones can expose the user to measurable
radiofrequency energy (RF) because of the short distance between the
phone and the user’s head. These RF exposures are limited by Federal
Communications Commission safety guidelines that were developed with
the advice of FDA and other federal health and safety agencies. When
the phone is located at greater distances from the user, the exposure to
RF is drastically lower because a person’s RF exposure decreases rapidly
with increasing distance from the source. The so-called “cordless
phones,” which have a base unit connected to the telephone wiring in a
house, typically operate at far lower power levels, and thus produce RF
exposures far below the FCC safety limits.
103
SAFETY AND WARRANTY
FDA CONSUMER UPDATE
4. What are the results of the research done already?
The research done thus far has produced conflicting results, and many
studies have suffered from flaws in their research methods. Animal
experiments investigating the effects of radiofrequency energy (RF)
exposures characteristic of wireless phones have yielded conflicting
results that often cannot be repeated in other laboratories. A few animal
studies, however, have suggested that low levels of RF could accelerate
the development of cancer in laboratory animals. However, many of the
studies that showed increased tumor development used animals that had
been genetically engineered or treated with cancer-causing chemicals so
as to be predisposed to develop cancer in the absence of RF exposure.
Other studies exposed the animals to RF for up to 22 hours per day.
These conditions are not similar to the conditions under which people
use wireless phones, so we don’t know with certainty what the results of
such studies mean for human health. Three large epidemiology studies
have been published since December 2000. Between them, the studies
investigated any possible association between the use of wireless phones
and primary brain cancer, glioma, meningioma, or acoustic neu-roma,
tumors of the brain or salivary gland, leukemia, or other cancers. None
of the studies demonstrated the existence of any harmful health effects
from wireless phone RF exposures. However, none of the studies can
answer questions about long-term exposures, since the average period of
phone use in these studies was around three years.
5. What research is needed to decide whether RF exposure from
wireless phones poses a health risk?
A combination of laboratory studies and epidemiological studies of
people actually using wireless phones would provide some of the data
that are needed. Lifetime animal exposure studies could be completed in
a few years. However, very large numbers of animals would be needed
to provide reliable proof of a cancer promoting effect if one exists.
Epidemiological studies can provide data that is directly applicable to
human populations, but 10 or more years’ follow-up may be needed to
provide answers about some health effects, such as cancer. This is
because the interval between the time of exposure to a cancer-causing
agent and the time tumors develop - if they do -may be many, many
years. The interpretation of epidemiological studies is hampered by
difficulties in measuring actual RF exposure during day-to-day use of
wireless phones. Many factors affect this measurement, such as the angle
at which the phone is held, or which model of phone is used.
104
FDA CONSUMER UPDATE
SAFETY AND WARRANTY
6. What is FDA doing to find out more about the possible health
effects of wireless phone RF?
FDA is working with the U.S. National Toxicology Program and with
groups of investigators around the world to ensure that high priority
animal studies are conducted to address important questions about the
effects of exposure to radiofrequency energy (RF). FDA has been a
leading participant in the World Health Organization International
Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) Project since its inception in 1996.
An influential result of this work has been the development of a detailed
agenda of research needs that has driven the establishment of new
research programs around the world. The Project has also helped
develop a series of public information documents on EMF issues. FDA
and the Cellular Telecommunications & Internet Association (CTIA) have
a formal Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) to
do research on wireless phone safety. FDA provides the scientific
oversight, obtaining input from experts in government, industry, and
academic organizations. CTIA-funded research is conducted through
contracts to independent investigators. The initial research will include
both laboratory studies and studies of wireless phone users. The CRADA
will also include a broad assessment of additional research needs in the
context of the latest research developments around the world.
7. How can I find out how much radiofrequency energy exposure
I can get by using my wireless phone?
All phones sold in the United States must comply with Federal
Communications Commission (FCC) guidelines that limit radiofrequency
energy (RF) exposures. FCC established these guidelines in consultation
with FDA and the other federal health and safety agencies. The FCC limit
for RF exposure from wireless telephones is set at a Specific Absorption
Rate (SAR) of 1.6 watts per kilogram (1.6 W/kg). The FCC limit is
consistent with the safety standards developed by the Institute of
Electrical and Electronic Engineering (IEEE) and the National Council on
Radiation Protection and Measurement. The exposure limit takes into
consideration the body’s ability to remove heat from the tissues that
absorb energy from the wireless phone and is set well below levels
known to have effects. Manufacturers of wireless phones must report
the RF exposure level for each model of phone to the FCC. The FCC
website (http://www.fcc.gov/oet/rfsafety) gives directions for locating the
FCC identification number on your phone so you can find your phone’s
RF exposure level in the online listing.
105
SAFETY AND WARRANTY
FDA CONSUMER UPDATE
8. What has FDA done to measure the radiofrequency energy
coming from wireless phones ?
The Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) is developing a
technical standard for measuring the radiofrequency energy (RF)
exposure from wireless phones and other wireless handsets with the
participation and leadership of FDA scientists and engineers.
The standard, “Recommended Practice for Determining the Spatial-Peak
Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) in the Human Body Due to Wireless
Communications Devices: Experimental Techniques,” sets forth the first
consistent test methodology for measuring the rate at which RF is
deposited in the heads of wireless phone users. The test method uses a
tissue-simulating model of the human head. Standardized SAR test
methodology is expected to greatly improve the consistency of
measurements made at different laboratories on the same phone. SAR is
the measurement of the amount of energy absorbed in tissue, either by
the whole body or a small part of the body. It is measured in watts/kg (or
milliwatts/g) of matter. This measurement is used to determine whether
a wireless phone complies with safety guidelines.
9. What steps can I take to reduce my exposure to radiofrequency
energy from my wireless phone?
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 you are concerned about
avoiding even potential risks, you can take a few simple steps to
minimize your exposure to radiofrequency energy (RF). Since time is a
key factor in how much exposure a person receives, reducing the amount
of time spent using a wireless phone will reduce RF exposure.
• If you must conduct extended conversations by wireless phone every
day, you could place more distance between your body and the source
of the RF, since the exposure level drops off dramatically with distance.
For example, you could use a headset and carry the wireless phone
away from your body or use a wireless phone connected to a remote
antenna.
Again, the scientific data do not demonstrate that wireless phones are
harmful. But if you are concerned about the RF exposure from these
products, you can use measures like those described above to reduce
your RF exposure from wireless phone use.
106
FDA CONSUMER UPDATE
SAFETY AND WARRANTY
10. What about children using wireless phones?
The scientific evidence does not show a danger to users of wireless
phones, including children and teenagers. If you want to take steps to
lower exposure to radiofrequency energy (RF), the measures described
above would apply to children and teenagers using wireless phones.
Reducing the time of wireless phone use and increasing the distance
between the user and the RF source will reduce RF exposure. Some
groups sponsored by other national governments have advised that
children be discouraged from using wireless phones at all. For example,
the government in the United Kingdom distributed leaflets containing
such a recommendation in December 2000. They noted that no evidence
exists that using a wireless phone causes brain tumors or other ill effects.
Their recommendation to limit wireless phone use by children was strictly
precautionary; it was not based on scientific evidence that any health
hazard exists.
11. What about wireless phone interference with medical
equipment?
Radiofrequency energy (RF) from wireless phones can interact with some
electronic devices. For this reason, FDA helped develop a detailed test
method to measure electromagnetic interference (EMI) of implanted
cardiac pacemakers and defibrillators from wireless telephones. This test
method is now part of a standard sponsored by the Association for the
Advancement of Medical instrumentation (AAMI). The final draft, a joint
effort by FDA, medical device manufacturers, and many other groups,
was completed in late 2000. This standard will allow manufacturers to
ensure that cardiac pacemakers and defibrillators are safe from wireless
phone EMI. FDA has tested hearing aids for interference from handheld
wireless phones and helped develop a voluntary standard sponsored by
the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE). This standard
specifies test methods and performance requirements for hearing aids
and wireless phones so that that no interference occurs when a person
uses a “compatible” phone and a “compatible” hearing aid at the same
time. This standard was approved by the IEEE in 2000. FDA continues to
monitor the use of wireless phones for possible interactions with other
medical devices. Should harmful interference be found to occur, FDA will
conduct testing to assess the interference and work to resolve the
problem.

WARRANTY
SAFETY AND WARRANTY
Read your Warranty carefully, with the special consideration to
paragraph seven of the Limited Warranty for your unit.
“Warranty does not apply to... or to any product or part thereof
which has suffered through alteration... mishandling, misuse,
neglect or accident”.
Many companies are making look alike accessories and in some
cases, promoting that their product is equal to or better than the
Pantech product. Be careful. Some of these products may not be
compatible to use with your Pantech product and may damage the
unit or cause it to malfunction. If service is required on your unit
and it is determined that a non-Pantech accessory has created the
problem with your unit, the Warranty will not apply. In addition,
if the unit has already suffered irreversible damage by reason of a
non-compatible accessory, the Warranty will be voided. To protect
your Warranty, use only compatible accessories which cannot
damage or interfere with the functioning of your Pantech product.
