SAFETY INFORMATION FOR
WIRELESS HANDHELD PHONES
Read This Information Before Using Your 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 88 (1986) *
ICNIRP (1996) *
SAFETY INFORMATION FOR
WIRELESS HANDHELD PHONES
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.
PHONE OPERATION
Normal Position: Hold the phone as you would any other
telephone with the antenna pointed up and over your shoulder.
TIPS ON EFFICIENT OPERATION:
- Extend your antenna fully.
- Do not touch the antenna unnecessarily when the phone
is in use. Contact with the antenna affects call quality and
may cause the phone to operate at a higher power level
than otherwise needed.
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).
DRIVING SAFETY
The design of your phone complies with the FCC guidelines
(and those standards).
Also, if using your phone while driving please:
˙;
American National Standards Institute; National Council on
Radiation Protection and Measurements; International
Commission on Nonionizing Radiation Protection.
Page 122 - Chapter 5
Talking on the phone while driving is extremely dangerous
and is illegal in some states. Remember, safety comes first.
Check the laws and regulations on the use of phones in the
areas where you drive. Always obey them.
- Give full attention to driving. Driving safely is your first
responsibility.
- Use hands-free operation, if available.
- Pull off the road and park before making or answering a
call, if driving conditions require.

shielded against the RF signals from your wireless phone.
Other Medical Devices
Pacemakers
The Health Industry Manufacturers Association recommends that a minimum separation of six (6”) inches be
maintained between a handheld wireless phone and a
pacemaker to avoid potential interference with the pacemaker. These recommendations are consistent with the
independent research by and recommendations of
Wireless Technology Research.
If you use any other personal medical device, consult the
manufacturer of your device to determine if they are adequately shielded from external RF energy Your physician
may be able to assist you in obtaining this information.
Turn your phone OFF in healthcare facilities when any regulations posted in these areas instruct you to do so.
Hospitals or healthcare facilities may be using equipment
that could be sensitive to external RF energy.
Vehicles
If you have a pacemaker:
l ALWAYS keep the phone more than six inches from
your pacemaker when the phone is turned on.
l Do not carry the phone in a breast pocket.
l Use the ear opposite the pacemaker to minimize
the potential for interference.
l If you have any reason to suspect that interference
is taking place, turn your phone OFF immediately.
RF signals may affect improperly installed or inadequately
shielded electronic systems in motor vehicles. Check with
the manufacturer or its representative regarding your vehicle. You should also consult the manufacturer of any equipment that has been added to your vehicle.
An airbag inflates with great force. DO NOT place objects,
including both installed or portable wireless equipment, in

SAR INFORMATION
SAR INFORMATION
THIS MODEL PHONE MEETS THE GOVERNMENT’S
REQUIREMENTS FOR EXPOSURE TO RADIO WAVES.
the body, as described in this user guide, is 0.659 W/kg. (Bodyworn 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.
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.
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 1.23 W/kg and when worn on
Page 130 - Chapter 5
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this model

* 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.

U.S. Food and Drug Administration Center for Devices and Radiological Health
Consumer Update on Mobile 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;
Page 132 - Chapter 5
• Design wireless phones in a way that minimizes any RF expo
sure 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.
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 interagency
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
Chapter 5 - Page 133
CDM-8600GENERICVERSION6/10-1
2003.6.10
5:13 PM
Page 136
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.
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 pre-disposed 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 neuroma, 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.
Page 134 - Chapter 5
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.
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
Chapter 5 - Page 135
CDM-8600GENERICVERSION6/10-1
2003.6.10
5:13 PM
Page 138
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.
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
Page 136 - Chapter 5
methodology for measuring the rate at which RF is deposited in
the heads of wireless phone users. The test method uses a tissuesimulating 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.
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.

Read your Warranty carefully, with the special consideration
to paragraph seven of the Limited Warranty for your unit.
AUDIOVOX COMMUNICATIONS CORP. (the Company)

only compatible accessories which cannot damage or
interfere with the functioning of your Audiovox product.
The antenna, keypad, display, rechargeable battery and battery
charger, if included, are similarly warranted for twelve (12)
months from date of purchase.
This Warranty extends only to consumers who purchase the
