To reduce the risk of bodily injury, electric shock, fire, and damage to
the equipment, observe the following precautions.
ELECTRICAL SAFETY
This product is intended for use when supplied with power from
the designated battery or power supply unit. Other usage may be
dangerous and will invalidate any approval given to this product.
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS FOR PROPER GROUNDING INSTALLATION
CAUTION: Connecting to an improperly grounded equipment can
result in an electric shock to your device.
This product is equipped with a USB Cable for connecting with a
desktop or notebook computer. Be sure your computer is properly
grounded (earthed) before connecting this product to the computer.
The power supply cord of a desktop or notebook computer has an
equipment-grounding conductor and a grounding plug. The plug must
be plugged into an appropriate outlet which is properly installed and
grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS FOR POWER SUPPLY UNIT
• Use the correct external power source
A product should be operated only from the type of power
source indicated on the electrical ratings label. If you are not sure
of the type of power source required, consult your authorized
service provider or local power company. For a product that
operates from battery power or other sources, refer to the
operating instructions that are included with the product.
•
Handle battery packs carefully
This product contains a Li-ion battery. There is a risk of fire and
burns if the battery pack is handled improperly. Do not attempt
to open or service the battery pack. Do not disassemble, crush,
puncture, short external contacts or circuits, dispose of in fire
or water, or expose a battery pack to temperatures higher than
60˚C (140˚F).
•
WARNING: Danger of explosion if battery is incorrectly replaced.
To reduce risk of fire or burns, do not disassemble, crush,
puncture, short external contacts, expose to temperature above
60˚C (140˚F), or dispose of in fire or water. Replace only with
specified batteries. Recycle or dispose of used batteries according
to the local regulations or reference guide supplied with your
product.
Take extra precautions
• Keep the battery or device dry and away from water or
any liquid as it may cause a short circuit.
• Keep metal objects away so they don’t come in contact
with the battery or its connectors as it may lead to short
circuit during operation.
• The phone should be only connected to products that bear
the USB-IF logo or have completed the USB-IF compliance
program.
• Do not use a battery that appears damaged, deformed,
or discolored, or the one that has any rust on its casing,
overheats, or emits a foul odor.
• Always keep the battery out of the reach of babies and
small children, to avoid swallowing of the battery. Consult
the doctor immediately if the battery is swallowed.
• Only use the battery with a charging system that has been
qualified with the system per this standard, IEEE-Std1725-2006. Use of an unqualified battery or charger may
present a risk of fire, explosion, leakage or other hazard.
• Replace the battery only with another battery that has
been qualified with the system per this standard, IEEE-Std1725-2006. Use of an unqualified battery may present a
risk of fire, explosion, leakage or other hazard.
• Avoid dropping the phone or battery. If the phone or
battery is dropped, especially on a hard surface, and
the user suspects damage, take it to a service centre for
inspection.
• If the battery leaks:
• Do not allow the leaking fluid to come in contact with
skin or clothing. If already in contact, flush the affected
area immediately with clean water and seek medical
advice.
• Do not allow the leaking fluid to come in contact with
eyes. If this occurs, DO NOT rub; rinse with clean water
immediately and seek medical advice.
• Take extra precautions to keep a leaking battery away
from fire as there is a danger of ignition or explosion.
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS FOR DIRECT SUNLIGHT
Keep this product away from excessive moisture and extreme
temperatures. Do not leave the product or its battery inside a vehicle
or in places where the temperature may exceed 60˚C (140˚F), such as
on a car dashboard, window sill, or behind a glass that is exposed to
direct sunlight or strong ultraviolet light for extended periods of time.
This may damage the product, overheat the battery, or pose a risk to
the vehicle.
PREVENTION OF HEARING LOSS
CAUTION: Permanent hearing loss may occur if earphones or
headphones are used at high volume for prolonged periods of time.
SAFETY IN AIRCRAFT
Due to the possible interference caused by this product to an aircraft’s
navigation system and its communications network, using this device’s
phone function on board an airplane is against the law in most
countries. If you want to use this device when on board an aircraft,
remember to turn off your phone by switching to Airplane Mode.
ENVIRONMENT RESTRICTIONS
Do not use this product in gas stations, fuel depots, chemical plants or
where blasting operations are in progress, or in potentially explosive
atmospheres such as fuelling areas, fuel storehouses, below deck on
boats, chemical plants, fuel or chemical transfer or storage facilities,
and areas where the air contains chemicals or particles, such as grain,
dust, or metal powders. Please be aware that sparks in such areas
could cause an explosion or fire resulting in bodily injury or even
death.
10 EXPLOSIVE ATMOSPHERES
When in any area with a potentially explosive atmosphere or where
flammable materials exist, the product should be turned off and the
user should obey all signs and instructions. Sparks in such areas could
cause an explosion or fire resulting in bodily injury or even death.
Users are advised not to use the equipment at refueling points such
as service or gas stations, and are reminded of the need to observe
restrictions on the use of radio equipment in fuel depots, chemical
plants, or where blasting operations are in progress. Areas with a
potentially explosive atmosphere are often, but not always, clearly
marked. These include fueling areas, below deck on boats, fuel or
chemical transfer or storage facilities, and areas where the air contains
chemicals or particles, such as grain, dust, or metal powders.
ROAD SAFETY
Vehicle drivers in motion are not permitted to use telephony services
with handheld devices, except in the case of emergency. In some
countries, using hands-free devices as an alternative is allowed.
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS FOR RF EXPOSURE
• Avoid using your phone near metal structures (for example, the
steel frame of a building).
•
Avoid using your phone near strong electromagnetic sources,
such as microwave ovens, sound speakers, TV and radio.
•
Use only original manufacturer-approved accessories, or
accessories that do not contain any metal.
•
Use of non-original manufacturer-approved accessories may
violate your local RF exposure guidelines and should be avoided.
11
INTERFERENCE WITH MEDICAL EQUIPMENT FUNCTIONS
This product may cause medical equipment to malfunction. The use of
this device is forbidden in most hospitals and medical clinics.
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 health care facilities when any regulations are
posted. Hospitals or health care facilities may be using equipment that
could be sensitive to external RF energy.
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.
NONIONIZING RADIATION
Your device has an internal antenna. This product should be operated
in its normal-use position to ensure the radiative performance and
safety of the interference. As with other mobile radio transmitting
equipment, users are advised that for satisfactory operation of the
equipment and for the safety of personnel, it is recommended that no
part of the human body be allowed to come too close to the antenna
during operation of the equipment.
Use only the supplied integral antenna. Use of unauthorized
or modified antennas may impair call quality and damage the
phone, causing loss of performance and SAR levels exceeding the
recommended limits as well as result in non-compliance with local
regulatory requirements in your country.
12 To assure optimal phone performance and
ensure human exposure to RF energy is
within the guidelines set forth in the relevant
standards, always use your device only in
its normal-use position. Contact with the
antenna area may impair call quality and
cause your device to operate at a higher
power level than needed. Avoiding contact
with the antenna area when the phone is IN
USE optimizes the antenna performance and
the battery life.
General Precautions
• Avoid applying excessive pressure to the device
Do not apply excessive pressure on the screen and the device
to prevent damaging them and remove the device from your
pants’ pocket before sitting down. It is also recommended that
you store the device in a protective case and only use the device
stylus or your finger when interacting with the touch screen.
Cracked display screens due to improper handling are not
covered by the warranty.
• Device getting warm after prolonged use
When using your device for prolonged periods of time, such
as when you’re talking on the phone, charging the battery or
browsing the web, the device may become warm. In most cases,
this condition is normal and therefore should not be interpreted
as a problem with the device.
13

documentation, do not service any product yourself. Service
needed on components inside the device should be done by an
authorized service technician or provider.

THIS MODEL DEVICE MEETS THE GOVERNMENT’S REQUIREMENTS
FOR EXPOSURE TO RADIO WAVES.
For body worn operation, this phone has been tested and meets the
FCC RF exposure guidelines when used with the HTC Corporation.
Accessories supplied or designated for this product. Use of other
accessories may not ensure compliance with the FCC RF exposure
guidelines.
Your wireless mobile 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 the safety standards previously set by both U.S. and international
standards bodies:
•
American National Standards Institute (ANSI) IEEE. C95.1-1992.
•
National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurement
(NCRP). Report 86. 1986.
•
International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection
(ICNIRP) 1996.
•
Ministry of Health (Canada), Safety Code 6. The standards
Appendix 239
include a substantial safety margin designed to assure the safety
of all persons, regardless of age and health.
The exposure standard for wireless mobile phone 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*.
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this model
device with all reported SAR levels evaluated as in compliance
with the FCC RF exposure guidelines. SAR information on this
model device is on file with the FCC and can be found under the
Display Grant section of https://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/oetcf/eas/reports/
GenericSearch.cfm after searching on FCC ID: NM8HERO200.
Additional information on Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) can be
found on the Cellular Telecommunications & Internet Association
(CTIA) Web-site as http://www.phonefacts.net.
* In the U.S. and Canada, the SAR limit for mobile phone 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 usage.
Normal condition only to ensure the radiative performance and
safety of the interference. As with other mobile radio transmitting
equipment, users are advised that for satisfactory operation of the
equipment and for the safety of personnel, it is recommended that no
part of the human body be allowed to come too close to the antenna
during operation of the equipment.
Telecommunications & Internet Association (TIA) Safety
