The Migo 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.
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).
* 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

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 or 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 note 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.

SAFETY
TIA(Telecommunications Industry
Association) Safety Information
The following is the complete TIA Safety Information
for wireless handheld phones.
Exposure to Radio Frequency Signal
SA F E T Y
20
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).
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. Unauthoriaed antennas, modifications, or
attachments could damage the phone and may
violate FCC regulations.
ANSI C95.1 (1992) *
Phone Operation
NCRP Report 86 (1986)
ICNIRP (1996)
NORMAL POSITION: Hold the phone as you would
any other telephone with the antenna pointed up
and over your shoulder.
Health Canada, Safety Code 6, 1999.
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
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.
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.
SA F E T Y
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:
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.
21
SAFETY
SA F E T Y
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.
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.
Posted Facilities
Turn your phone OFF in any facility where posted
notices so require.
22
Blasting Areas
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.
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.
For Vehicles Equipped with an Air Bag
An air bag inflates with great force. DO NOT place
objects, including either installed or portable wireless
equipment, in the area over the air bag or in the air
bag deployment area. If in-vehicle wireless equipment
is improperly installed and the air bag inflates, serious
injury could result.
Charger and Adapter Safety
The charger and adapter are intended for indoor
use only.
Do not expose the battery charger or adapter to
direct sunlight or use it in places with high
humidity, such as a bathroom.
Battery Information and Care
Please dispose of your battery properly or take it
to your local wireless carrier for recycling.
Do not dispose of your battery by fire or with
hazardous or flammable materials..
Never use an unapproved battery since this could
damage the phone and/or battery and could
cause the battery to explode.
The battery does not need to be fully discharged
before recharging.
Use only LG-approved chargers specific to your
phone model since they are designed to maximize
battery life.
Do not disassemble or short-circuit the battery.
Keep the battery’s metal contacts clean.
Replace the battery when it no longer provides
acceptable performance. The battery can be
recharged several hundred times before
replacement.
Recharge the battery after long periods of non-use
to maximize battery life.
Battery life will vary due to usage patterns and
environmental conditions.
Use of extended backlighting, MiniBrowser, and
data connectivity kits affect battery life and
talk/standby times.

When using the power plug, ensure that it is firmly
connected. If it is not, it may cause excessive heat
or fire.
Do not use harsh chemicals(such as alcohol,
benzene, thinners, etc.) or detergents to clean
your phone. There is a risk of this causing a fire.
Do not place any heavy items on the power cord.
Do not allow the power cord to be crimped as it
may cause fire or electric shock.
Do not disassemble the phone.
Do not handle the phone with wet hands while it
is being charged. It may cause an electric shock or
seriously damage your phone.
Do not place or answer calls while charging the
phone as it may short-circuit the phone and/or
cause electric shock or fire.
Do not drop, strike, or shake your phone severely.
Such actions may harm the internal circuit boards
of the phone.
If you put your phone in a pocket or bag without
covering the receptacle of the phone (power plug
pin), metallic articles (such as a coin, paperclip or

receptacle when not in use.
Do not short-circuit the battery. Metallic articles
such as a coin, paperclip or pen in your pocket or
bag may short-circuit the + and – terminals of the
battery (metal strips on the battery) upon moving.
Short-circuit of the terminal may damage the
battery and cause an explosion.
Never place your phone in a microwave oven as it
will cause the battery to explode.
Only use the batteries, antennas, and chargers
provided by LG. The warranty will not be applied
to products provided by other suppliers.
Store the battery in a place out of reach of children.
Using a damaged battery or placing a battery in
your mouth may cause serious injury.
Do not place items containing magnetic
components such as a credit card, phone card,
bank book or subway ticket near your phone. The
magnetism of the phone may damage the data
stored in the magnetic strip.
Do not hold or let the antenna come in contact
with your body during a call.
Do not use the phone in areas where its use is
prohibited. (For example: aircraft).
Do not immerse your phone in water. If this
happens, turn it off immediately and remove the
battery. If the phone does not work, take it to an
LG Authorized Service Center.
SA F E T Y
General Warnings and Cautions
Talking on your phone for a long period of time
may reduce call quality due to heat generated
during use.
When the phone is not used for a long period
time, store it in a safe place with the power cord
unplugged.
Using the phone in proximity to receiving
equipment (i.e., TV or radio) may cause
interference to the phone.
Only authorized personnel should service the
phone and its accessories. Faulty installation or
service may result in accidents and consequently
invalidate the warranty.
Do not use the phone if the antenna is damaged.
If a damaged antenna contacts skin, it may cause a
slight burn. Please contact an LG Authorized
Service Center to replace the damaged antenna.
25
SAFETY
Use accessories, such as earphones and headsets,
with caution. Ensure that cables are tucked away
safely and do not touch the antenna unnecessarily.
If you are listening to music whilst out and about,
please ensure that the volume is at a reasonable level
so that you are aware of your surroundings. This is
particularly imperative when attempting to cross the
street.
SA F E T Y
26
Avoid damage to your hearing
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.
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.
2. What is the FDA's role concerning the safety of
wireless phones?
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
SA F E T Y
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.
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.
27
SAFETY
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.
SA F E T Y
28
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 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 source. The
socalled “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
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.
SA F E T Y
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.
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
29
SAFETY
SA F E T Y
30
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.
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.
8. What has the FDA done to measure the radio
frequency energy coming from wireless phones?
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.
SA F E T Y
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 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
radio frequency energy from my wireless
phone?
31
SAFETY
10. What about children using wireless phones?
SA F E T Y
32
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.
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 continues to monitor the use of wireless phones
for possible interactions with other medical devices.
Should harmful interference be found to occur, the
FDA will conduct testing to assess the interference
and work to resolve the problem.

Consumer Information on SAR
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 using standard operating positions
specified by the FCC with the phone transmitting at
33
SAFETY
its highest certified power level in all tested
frequency bands. AlthoughSAR 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.
SA F E T Y
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 1.24 W/kg and when
worn on the body, as described in this user guide, is
0.839 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
34
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 BEJVX1000. Additional information on
Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) can be found on
the Cellular Telecommunications Industry
Association (CTIA) website at http://www.wowcom.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 substantial margin of
safety to give additional protection for the public
and to account for any variations in measurements.
