Technical Details
CDMA Standard
The LG 8500 is an all digital phone that operates on
both Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA)
frequencies: cellular services at 800 Mhz and
Personal Communication Services (PCS) at 1.9 Ghz.
Basic Air
Interface
Technical Details
CDMA technology uses a feature called DSSS
(Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum) that enables
the phone to keep communication from being
crossed and to use one frequency channel by
multiple users in the same specific area. This
results in a 10-fold capacity increase when
compared with analog mode. In addition, features
such as soft / softer handoff, hard Handoff, and
dynamic RF power control technologies combine to
reduce call interruptions.
The Cellular and PCS CDMA networks consist of
MSO (Mobile Switching Office), BSC (Base Station
Controller), BTS (Base station Transmission
System), and MS (Mobile Station). The following
table lists some major CDMA standards.
* TSB -74: Protocol between an IS-95A system and
ANSI J-STD-008
1xRTT system receives twice as many subscribers
in the wireless section as IS-95. Its battery life is
twice as long as IS-95. High-speed data
transmission is also possible.

TIA(Telecommunications Industry
Association) Safety Information
The following is the complete TIA Safety Information
for wireless handheld phones.
Exposure to Radio Frequency Signal
●
ANSI C95.1 (1992) *
●
NCRP Report 86 (1986)
●
ICNIRP (1996)
●
Health Canada, Safety Code 6, 1999.
The design of your phone complies with the FCC
guidelines, IC Regulations (and those standards).
Antenna Care
Use only the supplied or an approved replacement
antenna. Unauthorised antennas, modifications, or
attachments could damage the phone and may
violate FCC regulations.
Safety
Your wireless handheld portable phone 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:
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 (C95.1).
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
Pacemakers
For your phone to operate most efficiently:
The Health Industry Manufacturers Association
recommends that a minimum separation of six 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.
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
Check the laws and regulations on the use of
wireless phones in the areas where you drive and
always obey them. Also, if using your phone while
driving, please observe the following:
Safety
●
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 or the law so require.
Electronic Devices
Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from
RF signals. However, certain electronic equipment
may not be shielded against the RF signals from your
wireless phone.
62
Persons with Pacemakers:
● Should ALWAYS keep the phone more than six
inches from their pacemaker when the phone is
turned ON;
● Should not carry the phone in a breast pocket;
● Should use the ear opposite the pacemaker to
minimize the potential for interference;
● Should turn the phone OFF immediately if there is any
reason to suspect that interference is taking place.
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.) Optional for each phone manufacturer.

Other Medical Devices
Aircraft
If you use any other personal medical device, consult
the manufacturer of your device to determine if it is
adequately shielded from external RF energy. Your
physician may be able to assist you in obtaining this
information.
FCC and Transport Canada regulations prohibit using
your phone while in the air. Switch OFF your phone
before boarding an aircraft.
Health Care Facilities
To avoid interfering with blasting operations, turn your
phone OFF when in a “blasting area” or in areas
posted: “Turn off two-way radio”. Obey all signs and
instructions.
Turn your phone OFF in health care facilities when any
regulations posted in these areas instruct you to do
so. Hospitals or health care facilities may use
equipment that could be sensitive to external RF
energy.
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.
Posted Facilities
Turn your phone OFF in any facility where posted
notices so require.
Potentially Explosive Atmosphere
Turn your phone OFF when in any area with a
potentially explosive atmosphere and obey all signs and
instructions. Sparks in such areas could cause an
explosion or fire resulting in bodily injury or even death.
Safety
Vehicles
Blasting Areas
Areas with a potentially explosive atmosphere are
often, but not always marked clearly. Potential areas
may include: fueling areas (such as gasoline stations);
below deck on boats; fuel or chemical transfer or
storage facilities; vehicles using liquefied petroleum
gas (such as propane or butane); areas where the air
contains chemicals or particles (such as grain, dust,
or metal powders); and any other area where you would
normally be advised to turn off your vehicle engine.

FDA Consumer Update
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s
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 Main Menu
Screen. 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.
Safety
Damage to your hearing can occur if you are
exposed to loud sound for long periods of time. We
therefore recommend that you do not turn on or off
the handset close to your ear. We also recommend
that music and call volumes are set to a reasonable
level.

2. What is the FDA's role concerning the safety of
wireless phones?
Under the law, the 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, the 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.
Safety
68
Although the existing scientific data do not justify
FDA regulatory actions, the 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.
The 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
●
Occupational Safety and Health Administration
●
National Telecommunications and Information
Administration
The National Institutes of Health participates in some
interagency working group activities, as well.
The 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.
The FCC relies on the FDA and other health agencies
for safety questions about wireless phones.
LG 8500_Eng_Telus.qxd
10/9/06
8:31 PM
The 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?
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
Safety
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 FCC safety
guidelines that were developed with the advice of
the 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

Safety
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.
Safety
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
70
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 the FDA doing to find out more about the
possible health effects of wireless phone RF?
The 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 radio frequency energy (RF).
The 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
LG 8500_Eng_Telus.qxd
10/9/06
8:31 PM
7. How can I find out how much radio frequency
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 radio frequency energy (RF)
exposures. The FCC established these guidelines in
consultation with the 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.
Safety
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. The FDA and the Cellular
Telecommunications & Internet Association (CTIA)
have a formal Cooperative Research and
Development Agreement (CRADA) to do research on
wireless phone safety. The FDA provides the
scientific oversight, obtaining input from experts in
government, industry, and academic organizations.
CTIA-funded research is conducted through
contracts with 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.

8. What has the FDA done to measure the radio
frequency energy coming from wireless phones?
9. What steps can I take to reduce my exposure to
radio frequency energy from my wireless phone?
The Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers
(IEEE) is developing a technical standard for
measuring the radio frequency 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 SpatialPeak 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 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.
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 radio frequency 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?
11. What about wireless phone interference with
medical equipment?
Radio frequency energy (RF) from wireless phones
can interact with some electronic devices. For this
reason, the 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 the 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. The 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 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. The FDA
Safety
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 radio frequency 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.

wireless 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 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/ICis 1.6 W/kg*. Tests for SAR are
conducted using standard operating positions
specified by the FCC with the phone transmitting at

its highest certified power level in all tested
frequency bands. Although 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. Because the phone is
designed to operate at multiple power levels 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.
The highest SAR value for this model phone when
tested for use at the ear is 1.13 W/kg and when
worn on the body, as described in this user guide, is
0.773 W/kg (body-worn measurements differ among
phone models, depending upon available
accessories and FCC/IC requirements). While there
may be differences between 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 emission
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 BEJVX8500. Additional information on Specific
Absorption Rates (SAR) can be found on the Cellular
Telecommunications Industry Association (CTIA)
website at http://www.ctia.org.
* 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.
Safety
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.
