SAFETY INFORMATION FOR
WIRELESS HANDHELD PHONES
ANTENNA CARE
EXPOSURE TO RADIO FREQUENCY SIGNALS
Use only the supplied or an approved replacement antenna.
Unauthorized antennas, modifications, or attachments could
damage the phone and may violate FCC regulations.
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.
PHONE OPERATION
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) *
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).
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.
DRIVING SAFETY
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.
Also, if using your phone while driving please:
The design of your phone complies with the FCC guidelines
(and those standards).

- 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.

ELECTRONIC DEVICES
Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from RF
energy. However, certain electronic equipment may not be
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 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.
Hearing Aids
Some digital wireless phones may interfere with some hearing
aids. In the event of such interference, you may want to
consult your service provider (or call the customer service line
to discuss alternatives).
Page 148 - Chapter 8
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
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.

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
as described in this user guide, is 0.633 W/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.
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 PP4TX-160C.
Additional information on Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) can be
found on the Cellular Telecommunications & Internet Association
(CTIA) web-site at http://phonefacts.net.
* 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.
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 1.15 W/kg
and when worn on the body,

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 standby 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 156 - Chapter 8
• 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 handheld 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
Chapter 8 - Page 157
CDM-8940VW_EN_M_050106
2005.1.7
5:51 PM
Page 160
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 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 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 158 - Chapter 8
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 contracts to independent investigators.
Chapter 8 - Page 159

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 160 - Chapter 8
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
Chapter 8 - Page 161
CDM-8940VW_EN_M_050106
2005.1.7
5:51 PM
Page 164
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.
