Your phone features earSmart™, an intelligent voice processor that delivers a clear voice experience, allowing you to hear and be
heard™ in nearly any environment. earSmart technology uses the science of human hearing to distinguish sounds, identify your
voice and suppress surrounding noise, for clear conversations just about anywhere.
How Does It Work?
• The earSmart voice processor in your phone captures your voice and all the sounds around you.
• Working like the human ear, it processes and distinguishes these sounds, isolates your voice conversation, and removes background noise from both ends of a call.
• It also automatically equalizes and adjusts voice volume so you can hear and talk naturally, even in the noisiest places.
• With earSmart technology, you can talk where you want, and have clear conversations for mobile calls, video chats, even speakerphone calls,
without worrying about surrounding noise.

Section 11: Health and Safety Information
This section outlines the safety precautions associated with using
your phone. The terms “mobile device” or “cell phone” are used
in this section to refer to your phone. Read this information before
using your mobile device.
Exposure to Radio Frequency (RF) Signals
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has published
information for consumers relating to Radio Frequency (RF)
exposure from wireless phones. The FDA publication includes the
following information:
Do cell phones pose a health hazard?
Many people are concerned that cell phone radiation will cause
cancer or other serious health hazards. The weight of scientific
evidence has not linked cell phones with any health problems.
Cell phones emit low levels of Radio Frequency (RF) energy. Over
the past 15 years, scientists have conducted hundreds of studies
looking at the biological effects of the radio frequency energy
emitted by cell phones. While some researchers have reported
biological changes associated with RF energy, these studies have
failed to be replicated. The majority of studies published have
failed to show an association between exposure to radio
frequency from a cell phone and health problems.
The low levels of RF cell phones emit while in use are in the
microwave frequency range. They also emit RF at substantially
reduced time intervals 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.
The biological effects of radio frequency energy should not be
confused with the effects from other types of electromagnetic
energy.
Very high levels of electromagnetic energy, such as is found in
X-rays and gamma rays, can ionize biological tissues. Ionization
is a process where electrons are stripped away from their normal
locations in atoms and molecules. It can permanently damage
biological tissues including DNA, the genetic material.
The energy levels associated with radio frequency energy,
including both radio waves and microwaves, are not great
enough to cause ionization of atoms and molecules. Therefore,
RF energy is a type of non-ionizing radiation. Other types of
non-ionizing radiation include visible light, infrared radiation
(heat), and other forms of electromagnetic radiation with
relatively low frequencies.
Health and Safety Information
195
While RF energy does not ionize particles, large amounts can
increase body temperatures and cause tissue damage. Two
areas of the body, the eyes and the testes, are particularly
vulnerable to RF heating because there is relatively little blood
flow in them to carry away excess heat.
Research Results to Date: Is there a connection between RF
and certain health problems?
The results of most studies conducted to date say no. In addition,
attempts to replicate and confirm the few studies that have
shown a connection have failed.
The scientific community at large therefore believes that the
weight of scientific evidence does not show an association
between exposure to Radio Frequency (RF) from cell phones and
adverse health outcomes. Still the scientific community has
supported additional research to address gaps in knowledge.
Some of these studies are described below.
Interphone Study
Interphone is a large international study designed to determine
whether cell phones increase the risk of head and neck cancer. A
report published in the International Journal of Epidemiology
(June, 2010) compared cell phone usage for more than 5,000
people with brain tumors (glioma and meningioma) and a similar
number of healthy controls.
196
Results of this study did NOT show that cell phones caused brain
cancer. In this study, most people had no increased risk of brain
cancer from using cell phones. For people with the heaviest use
of cell phones (an average of more than ½ hour per day, every
day, for over 10 years) the study suggested a slight increase in
brain cancer. However, the authors determined that biases and
errors prevented any conclusions being drawn from this data.
Additional information about Interphone can be found at
http://www.iarc.fr/en/media-centre/pr/2010/pdfs/pr200_E.pdf.
Interphone is the largest cell phone study to date, but it did not
answer all questions about cell phone safety. Additional research
is being conducted around the world, and the FDA continues to
monitor developments in this field.
International Cohort Study on Mobile Phone Users (COSMOS)
The COSMOS study aims to conduct long-term health monitoring
of a large group of people to determine if there are any health
issues linked to long-term exposure to radio frequency energy
from cell phone use. The COSMOS study will follow
approximately 300,000 adult cell phone users in Europe for 20 to
30 years. Additional information about the COSMOS study can be
found at
http://www.ukcosmos.org/index.html.
Risk of Brain Cancer from Exposure to Radio Frequency Fields
in Childhood and Adolescence (MOBI-KIDS)
MOBI-KIDS is an international study investigating the relationship
between exposure to radio frequency energy from
communication technologies including cell phones and brain
cancer in young people. This is an international multi-center
study involving 14 European and non-European countries.
Additional information about MOBI-KIDS can be found at
http://www.creal.cat/programes-recerca/en_projectes-creal/
view.php?ID=39.
Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program
of the National Cancer Institute
The National Cancer Institute (NCI) actively follows cancer
statistics in the United States to detect any change in rates of
new cases for brain cancer. If cell phones play a role in risk for
brain cancer, rates should go up, because heavy cell phone use
has been common for quite some time in the U.S. Between 1987
and 2005, the overall age-adjusted incidence of brain cancer did
not increase. Additional information about SEER can be found at
http://seer.cancer.gov/.
Cell Phone Industry Actions
Although the existing scientific data do not justify FDA regulatory
actions, the FDA has urged the cell phone industry to take a
number of steps, including the following:
• Support-needed research on possible biological effects of RF for
the type of signal emitted by cell phones;
• Design cell phones in a way that minimizes any RF exposure to the
user; and
• Cooperate in providing users of cell phones with the current
information on cell phone use and human health concerns.
The FDA also is working with voluntary standard-setting bodies
such as the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers
(IEEE), the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation
Protection (ICNIRP), and others to assure that safety standards
continue to adequately protect the public.
Reducing Exposure: Hands-Free Kits and Other
Accessories
Steps to Reduce Exposure to Radio Frequency Energy
If there is a risk from being exposed to radio frequency energy
(RF) from cell phones - 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 RF exposure.
• Reduce the amount of time spent using your cell phone;
• Use speaker mode or a headset to place more distance between your
head and the cell phone.
Health and Safety Information
197
Hands-Free Kits
Hands-free kits may include audio or Bluetooth® headsets and
various types of body-worn accessories such as belt-clips and
holsters. Combinations of these can be used to reduce RF energy
absorption from cell phones.
Headsets can substantially reduce exposure because the phone
is held away from the head in the user's hand or in approved
body-worn accessories. Cell phones marketed in the U.S. are
required to meet RF exposure compliance requirements when
used against the head and against the body.
Because there are no known risks from exposure to RF emissions
from cell phones, there is no reason to believe that hands-free
kits reduce risks. Hands-free kits can be used for convenience
and comfort. They are also required by law in many states if you
want to use your phone while driving.
Cell Phone Accessories that Claim to Shield the Head from RF
Radiation
Because there are no known risks from exposure to RF emissions
from cell phones, there is no reason to believe that accessories
which claim to shield the head from those emissions reduce
risks. Some products that claim to shield the user from RF
absorption use special phone cases, while others involve nothing
more than a metallic accessory attached to the phone.
198
Studies have shown that these products generally do not work as
advertised. Unlike “hands-free” kits, these so-called “shields”
may interfere with proper operation of the phone. The phone may
be forced to boost its power to compensate, leading to an
increase in RF absorption.
Children and Cell Phones
The scientific evidence does not show a danger to any users of
cell phones from RF exposure, including children and teenagers.
The steps adults can take to reduce RF exposure apply to
children and teenagers as well.
• Reduce the amount of time spent on the cell phone;
• Use speaker mode or a headset to place more distance between the
head and the cell phone.
Some groups sponsored by other national governments have
advised that children be discouraged from using cell phones at
all. For example, The Stewart Report from the United Kingdom
made such a recommendation in December 2000. In this report,
a group of independent experts noted that no evidence exists that
using a cell phone causes brain tumors or other ill effects. Their
recommendation to limit cell phone use by children was strictly
precautionary; it was not based on scientific evidence that any
health hazard exists.

sources can be obtained from the following organizations

Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) Certification
Information
Your wireless phone is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is
designed and manufactured not to exceed the exposure limits for
Radio Frequency (RF) energy set by the Federal Communications
Commission (FCC) of the U.S. Government.
These FCC RF exposure limits are derived from the
recommendations of two expert organizations: the National
Council on Radiation Protection and Measurement (NCRP) and
the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). In both
cases, the recommendations were developed by scientific and
engineering experts drawn from industry, government, and
academia after extensive reviews of the scientific literature
related to the biological effects of RF energy.
The RF exposure limit set by the FCC for wireless mobile phones
employs a unit of measurement known as the Specific
Absorption Rate (SAR). The SAR is a measure of the rate of
absorption of RF energy by the human body expressed in units of
watts per kilogram (W/kg). The FCC requires wireless phones to
comply with a safety limit of 1.6 watts per kilogram (1.6 W/kg).
The FCC SAR limit incorporates a substantial margin of safety to
give additional protection to the public and to account for any
variations in measurements.
Health and Safety Information
199
SAR tests are conducted using standard operating positions
accepted by the FCC 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 reported 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 of the
phone.
**************Before a new model phone is available for sale to
the public, it must be tested and certified to the FCC that it does
not exceed the SAR limit established by the FCC. Tests for each
model phone are performed in positions and locations (e.g. at the
ear and worn on the body) as required by the FCC. For body-worn
operation, this phone has been tested and meets FCC RF
exposure guidelines when used with an accessory that contains
no metal and that positions the mobile device a minimum of 1.0
cm from the body.
Use of other accessories may not ensure compliance with FCC RF
exposure guidelines. The FCC has granted an Equipment
Authorization for this mobile phone with all reported SAR levels
evaluated as in compliance with the FCC RF exposure guidelines.
The maximum SAR values for this model phone as reported
to the FCC are:
200
• Head: 0.41 W/Kg
• Body: 1.12 W/Kg
SAR information on this and other model phones can be
accessed online on the FCC's website through http://
transition.fcc.gov/oet/rfsafety/sar.html. To find information that
pertains to a particular model phone, this site uses the phone
FCC ID number which is usually printed somewhere on the case
of the phone. Sometimes it may be necessary to remove the
battery pack to find the number. Once you have the FCC ID
number for a particular phone, follow the instructions on the
website and it should provide values for typical or maximum SAR
for a particular phone. Additional SAR information can also be
obtained at
http://www.fcc.gov/encyclopedia/specific-absorption-rate-sar-cellulartelephones.

Commercial Mobile Alerting System (CMAS)
This device is designed to receive wireless emergency alerts
from the Commercial Mobile Alerting System ("CMAS"; which
may also be known as the Personal Localized Alerting Network
("PLAN")). If your wireless provider has chosen to participate in
CMAS/PLAN, alerts are available while in the provider's coverage
area. If you travel outside your provider's coverage area, wireless
emergency alerts may not be available. For more information,
please contact your wireless provider.
Smart Practices While Driving
On the Road - Off the Phone
The primary responsibility of every driver is the safe operation of
his or her vehicle.
Responsible drivers understand that no secondary task should be
performed while driving whether it be eating, drinking, talking to
passengers, or talking on a mobile phone - unless the driver has
assessed the driving conditions and is confident that the
secondary task will not interfere with their primary responsibility.
Do not engage in any activity while driving a moving vehicle which
may cause you to take your eyes off the road or become so
absorbed in the activity that your ability to concentrate on the act
of driving becomes impaired. Samsung is committed to promoting
responsible driving and giving drivers the tools they need to
understand and address distractions.
Check the laws and regulations on the use of mobile devices and
their accessories in the areas where you drive. Always obey them.
The use of these devices may be prohibited or restricted in certain
areas. For example, only hands-free use may be permitted in
certain areas.
Health and Safety Information
201
Before answering calls, consider your circumstances. Let the call
go to voicemail when driving conditions require. Remember,
driving comes first, not the call!
If you consider a call necessary and appropriate, follow these
tips:
• Use a hands-free device;
• Secure your phone within easy reach;
• Place calls when you are not moving;
• Plan calls when your car will be stationary;
• Do not engage in stressful or emotional conversations;
• Let the person with whom you are speaking know that you are driving
and will suspend the call if necessary;
Never mount this device in a manner that will obstruct the
driver's clear view of the street and traffic.
Never use wireless data services such as text messaging, Web
browsing, or e-mail while operating a vehicle.
Never watch videos, such as a movie or clip, or play video games
while operating a vehicle.
For more information, go to http://www.ctia.org.
Battery Use and Safety
Important! Handle and store batteries properly to avoid injury or
damage. Most battery issues arise from improper
handling of batteries and, particularly, from the
continued use of damaged batteries.
• Do not take notes or look up phone numbers while driving;
Notice regarding legal restrictions on mounting this device in an
automobile:
Laws in some states may prohibit mounting this device on or
near the windshield of an automobile. In other states, the law
may permit mounting this device only in specific locations in the
automobile. Be sure to consult the state and local laws or
ordinances where you drive before mounting this device in an
automobile. Failure to comply with these restrictions could result
in fines, penalties, or other damages.
202
• Do not disassemble, crush, puncture, shred, or otherwise attempt
to change the form of your battery. Do not put a high degree of
pressure on the battery. This can cause leakage or an internal
short-circuit, resulting in overheating.
• Do not let the phone or battery come in contact with liquids.
Liquids can get into the phone's circuits, leading to corrosion. Even
when the phone appears to be dry and appears to operate normally,
the circuitry could slowly corrode and pose a safety hazard. If the
phone and/or battery get wet, have them checked by your service
provider or contact Samsung, even if they appear to be working
properly.
• Never use any charger or battery that is damaged in any way.
• Do not allow the battery to touch metal objects. Accidental
short-circuiting can occur when a metallic object (coin, key, jewelry,
clip, or pen) causes a direct connection between the + and - terminals
of the battery (metal strips on the battery), for example when you
carry a spare battery in a pocket or bag. Short-circuiting the terminals
may damage the battery or the object causing the short-circuiting.
• Do not place your battery in or near a heat source. Excessive
heating can damage the phone or the battery and could cause the
phone or the battery to explode. Do not dry a wet or damp battery with
an appliance or heat source such as a microwave oven, hair dryer,
iron, or radiator. Avoid leaving your phone in your car in high
temperatures.
• Do not dispose of the phone or the battery in a fire. The phone or
the battery may explode when overheated.
• Do not handle a damaged or leaking battery. Do not let leaking
battery fluid come in contact with your eyes, skin or clothing. For safe
disposal options, contact your nearest Samsung-authorized service
center.
• Avoid dropping the cell phone. Dropping the phone or the battery,
especially on a hard surface, can potentially cause damage to the
phone and battery. If you suspect damage to the phone or battery,
take it to a service center for inspection.
Important! Use only Samsung-approved batteries, and recharge
your battery only with Samsung-approved chargers
which are specifically designed for your phone.
WARNING!
Use of a non-Samsung-approved battery or charger may present a
risk of fire, explosion, leakage, or other hazard. Samsung's
warranty does not cover damage to the phone caused by
non-Samsung-approved batteries and/or chargers.
• Do not use incompatible cell phone batteries and chargers. Some
websites and second-hand dealers not associated with reputable
manufacturers and carriers, might be selling incompatible or even
counterfeit batteries and chargers. Consumers should purchase
manufacturer or carrier-recommended products and accessories. If
unsure about whether a replacement battery or charger is compatible,
contact the manufacturer of the battery or charger.
Health and Safety Information
203
• Misuse or use of incompatible phones, batteries, and charging
devices could result in damage to the equipment and a possible
risk of fire, explosion, or leakage, leading to serious injuries,
damages to your phone, or other serious hazard.

GPS
Certain Samsung mobile devices can use a Global Positioning
System (GPS) signal for location based applications. A GPS uses
satellites controlled by the U.S. Government that are subject to
changes implemented in accordance with the Department of
Defense policy and the 2008 Federal Radio navigation Plan (FRP).
Changes may affect the performance of location-based
technology on your mobile device.
Even with GPS, when you make an emergency call:
• Always tell the emergency responder your location to the best of your
ability; and
• Remain on the mobile device for as long as the emergency responder
instructs you.
Navigation
Maps, directions, and other navigation-data, including data
relating to your current location, may contain inaccurate or
incomplete data, and circumstances can and do change over
time. In some areas, complete information may not be available.
Therefore, you should always visually confirm that the navigational
instructions are consistent with what you see before following
them. All users should pay attention to road conditions, closures,
traffic, and all other factors that may impact safe driving or
walking. Always obey posted road signs.
Emergency Calls
This mobile device, like any wireless mobile device, operates
using radio signals, wireless and landline networks, as well as
user-programmed functions, which cannot guarantee connection
in all conditions, areas, or circumstances.
Therefore, you should never rely solely on any wireless mobile
device for essential communications (medical emergencies, for
example). Before traveling in remote or underdeveloped areas,
plan an alternate method of contacting emergency services
personnel. Remember, to make or receive any calls, the mobile
device must be switched on and in a service area with adequate
signal strength.
Emergency calls may not be possible on all wireless mobile
device networks or when certain network services and/or mobile
device features are in use. Check with local service providers.
To make an emergency call:
1. If the phone is not on, switch it on.
2. From the Home screen, tap
(for example, 911 or other official emergency number).
Emergency numbers vary by location.
4. Tap the
206
. The dialer displays.
3. Key in the emergency number for your present location
key.
If certain features are in use (call blocking, for example), you may
first need to deactivate those features before you can make an
emergency call. Consult your User Manual and your local cellular
service provider. When making an emergency call, remember to
give all the necessary information as accurately as possible.
Remember that your mobile device may be the only means of
communication at the scene of an accident; do not cut off the call
until given permission to do so.
Care and Maintenance
Extreme heat or cold
Avoid temperatures below 0°C / 32°F or above 45°C / 113°F.

Responsible Listening
Caution! Avoid potential hearing loss.
Health and Safety Information
207
Damage to hearing occurs when a person is exposed to loud
sounds over time. The risk of hearing loss increases as sound is
played louder and for longer durations. Prolonged exposure to
loud sounds (including music) is the most common cause of
preventable hearing loss. Some scientific research suggests that
using portable audio devices, such as portable music players and
cell phones, at high volume settings for long durations may lead
to permanent noise-induced hearing loss.
• Set the volume in a quiet environment and select the lowest volume at
This includes the use of headphones (including headsets,
earbuds, and Bluetooth® or other wireless devices). Exposure to
very loud sound has also been associated in some studies with
tinnitus (a ringing in the ear), hypersensitivity to sound, and
distorted hearing. Individual susceptibility to noise-induced
hearing loss and potential hearing problem varies. Additionally,
the amount of sound produced by a portable audio device varies
depending on the nature of the sound, the device settings, and
the headphones that are used. As a result, there is no single
volume setting that is appropriate for everyone or for every
combination of sound, settings, and equipment.
• Do not turn the volume up to block out noisy surroundings. If you
You should follow some common sense recommendations when
using any portable audio device:
• Always turn the volume down before plugging the earphones into an
audio source.

which you can hear adequately.
• Be aware that you can adapt to higher volume settings over time, not
realizing that the higher volume may be harmful to your hearing.
• When using headphones, turn the volume down if you cannot hear the
people speaking near you or if the person sitting next to you can hear
what you are listening to.
choose to listen to your portable device in a noisy environment, use
noise-cancelling headphones to block out background environmental
noise. By blocking background environment noise, noise cancelling
headphones should allow you to hear the music at lower volumes than
when using earbuds.
• Limit the amount of time you listen. As the volume increases, less
time is required before you hearing could be affected.
• Avoid using headphones after exposure to extremely loud noises, such
as rock concerts, that might cause temporary hearing loss. Temporary
hearing loss might cause unsafe volumes to sound normal.
• Do not listen at any volume that causes you discomfort. If you
experience ringing in your ears, hear muffled speech, or experience
any temporary hearing difficulty after listening to your portable audio
device, discontinue use and consult your doctor.

Using Your Mobile Device Near Other Electronic Devices
Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from Radio
Frequency (RF) signals. However, certain electronic equipment
may not be shielded against the RF signals from your wireless
mobile device. Consult the manufacturer to discuss alternatives.
Implantable Medical Devices
A minimum separation of six (6) inches should be maintained
between a handheld wireless mobile device and an implantable
medical device, such as a pacemaker or implantable cardioverter
defibrillator, to avoid potential interference with the device.
Persons who have such devices:
• Should ALWAYS keep the mobile device more than six (6) inches from
their implantable medical device when the mobile device is turned ON;
• Should not carry the mobile device in a breast pocket;
• Should use the ear opposite the implantable medical device to
minimize the potential for interference;
• Should turn the mobile device OFF immediately if there is any reason
to suspect that interference is taking place;
• Should read and follow the directions from the manufacturer of your
implantable medical device. If you have any questions about using
your wireless mobile device with an implantable medical device,
consult your health care provider.
210
For more information see: http://www.fcc.gov/oet/rfsafety/rffaqs.html#.
Other Medical Devices
If you use any other personal medical devices, 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. Switch your mobile
device off in health care facilities when any regulations posted in
these areas instruct you to do so. Hospitals or health care
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 before
using your mobile device in a motor vehicle. You should also
consult the manufacturer of any equipment that has been added
to your vehicle.
Posted Facilities
Switch your mobile device off in any facility where posted notices
require you to do so.
Potentially Explosive Environments
Switch your mobile device 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. Users are advised to switch the mobile
device off while at a refueling point (service station).
Users are reminded of the need to observe restrictions on the use
of radio equipment in fuel depots (fuel storage and distribution
areas), chemical plants, or where blasting operations are in
progress. Areas with a potentially explosive atmosphere are
often, but not always, clearly marked. They include below deck
on boats, 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.
When your Device is Wet
Do not turn on your device if it is wet. If your device is already on,
turn it off and remove the battery immediately (if the device will
not turn off or you cannot remove the battery, leave it as-is).
Then, dry the device with a towel and take it to a service center.
FCC Hearing Aid Compatibility (HAC)
Regulations for Wireless Devices
The U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has
established requirements for digital wireless mobile devices to be
compatible with hearing aids and other assistive hearing devices.
When individuals employing some assistive hearing devices
(hearing aids and cochlear implants) use wireless mobile
devices, they may detect a buzzing, humming, or whining noise.
Some hearing devices are more immune than others to this
interference noise, and mobile devices also vary in the amount of
interference they generate.
The wireless telephone industry has developed a rating system
for wireless mobile devices to assist hearing device users find
mobile devices that may be compatible with their hearing
devices. Not all mobile devices have been rated. Mobile devices
that are rated have the rating on their box or a label located on
the box.
The ratings are not guarantees. Results will vary depending on
the user's hearing device and hearing loss. If your hearing device
happens to be vulnerable to interference, you may not be able to
use a rated mobile device successfully. Trying out the mobile
device with your hearing device is the best way to evaluate it for
your personal needs.
Health and Safety Information
211
M-Ratings: Wireless mobile devices rated M3 or M4 meet FCC
requirements and are likely to generate less interference to
hearing devices than mobile devices that are not labeled. M4 is
the better/higher of the two ratings. M-ratings refer to enabling
acoustic coupling with hearing aids that do not operate in telecoil
mode.
Under the standard, this should provide the hearing aid user with
normal use while using the hearing aid with the particular
wireless mobile device. A sum of 6 or more would indicate
excellent performance.
However, these are not guarantees that all users will be satisfied.
T ratings work similarly.
T-Ratings: Mobile devices rated T3 or T4 meet FCC requirements
and are likely to generate less interference to hearing devices
than mobile devices that are not labeled. T4 is the better/higher
of the two ratings. T-ratings refer to enabling inductive coupling
with hearing aids operating in telecoil mode.
Hearing devices may also be rated. Your hearing aid
manufacturer or hearing health professional may help you find
this rating. Higher ratings mean that the hearing device is
relatively immune to interference noise.
Under the current industry standard, American National
Standards Institute (ANSI) C63.19, the hearing aid and wireless
mobile device rating values are added together to indicate how
usable they are together. For example, if a hearing aid meets the
M2 level rating and the wireless mobile device meets the M3
level rating, the sum of the two values equals M5.
212
M3

The HAC rating and measurement procedure are described in the
American National Standards Institute (ANSI) C63.19 standard.
HAC for Newer Technologies
This phone has been tested and rated for use with hearing aids
for some of the wireless technologies that it uses. However, there
may be some newer wireless technologies used in this phone
that have not been tested yet for use with hearing aids.
It is important to try the different features of this phone
thoroughly and in different locations, using your hearing aid or
cochlear implant, to determine if you hear any interfering noise.
Consult your service provider or the manufacturer of this phone
for information on hearing aid compatibility. If you have questions
about return or exchange policies, consult your service provider
or phone retailer.

those rights as are granted to all other end users pursuant to the
terms and conditions herein. All Software and Products are
provided subject to Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR)
52.227.19.
14. APPLICABLE LAW. This EULA is governed by the laws of
TEXAS, without regard to conflicts of laws principles. This EULA
shall not be governed by the UN Convention on Contracts for the
International Sale of Goods, the application of which is expressly
excluded.
15. DISPUTE RESOLUTION.
(a) Non-United States residents. If a dispute, controversy or
difference is not amicably settled, it shall be finally resolved by
arbitration in Seoul, Korea in accordance with the Arbitration
Rules of the Korean Commercial Arbitration Board. The award of
arbitration shall be final and binding upon the parties.
(b) United States residents. ALL DISPUTES WITH SAMSUNG
ELECTRONICS CO. ARISING IN ANY WAY FROM THIS EULA OR
YOUR USE OF THE SOFTWARE SHALL BE RESOLVED
EXCLUSIVELY THROUGH FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION, AND
NOT BY A COURT OR JURY. Any such dispute shall not be
combined or consolidated with any other person's or entity's
claim or dispute, and specifically, without limitation of the
foregoing, shall not under any circumstances proceed as part of
a class action. The arbitration shall be conducted before a single
224
arbitrator, whose award may not exceed, in form or amount, the
relief allowed by the applicable law. The arbitration shall be
conducted according to the American Arbitration Association
(AAA) Commercial Arbitration Rules applicable to consumer
disputes. This arbitration provision is entered pursuant to the
Federal Arbitration Act. The laws of the State of Texas, without
reference to its choice of laws principles, shall govern the
interpretation of the EULA and all disputes that are subject to this
arbitration provision. The arbitrator shall decide all issues of
interpretation and application of this arbitration provision and the
EULA. For any arbitration in which your total damage claims,
exclusive of attorney fees and expert witness fees, are $5,000.00
or less ("Small Claim"), the arbitrator may, if you prevail, award
your reasonable attorney fees, expert witness fees and costs as
part of any award, but may not grant Samsung Electronics Co. its
attorney fees, expert witness fees or costs unless it is
determined that the claim was brought in bad faith. In a Small
Claim case, you shall be required to pay no more than half of the
total administrative, facility and arbitrator fees, or $50.00 of such
fees, whichever is less, and Samsung Electronics Co. shall pay
the remainder of such fees. Administrative, facility and arbitrator
fees for arbitrations in which your total damage claims, exclusive
of attorney fees and expert witness fees, exceed $5,000.00
("Large Claim") shall be determined according to AAA rules. In a
Large Claim case, the arbitrator may grant to the prevailing party,
or apportion among the parties, reasonable attorney fees, expert
witness fees and costs. Judgment may be entered on the
arbitrator's award in any court of competent jurisdiction. This
arbitration provision also applies to claims against Samsung
Electronics Co.'s employees, representatives and affiliates if any
such claim arises from the licensing or use of the Software. You
may opt out of this dispute resolution procedure by providing
notice to Samsung Electronics Co. no later than 30 calendar days
from the date of the first consumer purchaser's purchase of this
device. To opt out, you must send notice by e-mail to
optout@sta.samsung.com, with the subject line: "Arbitration Opt
Out." You must include in the opt out e-mail (a) your name and
address; (b) the date on which the device was purchased; (c) the
device model name or model number; and (d) the IMEI or MEID or
Serial Number, as applicable, if you have it (the IMEI or MEID or
Serial Number can be found (i) on the device box; (ii) on the
device information screen, which can be found under "Settings;"
(iii) on a label on the back of the device beneath the battery, if the
battery is removable; and (iv) on the outside of the device if the
battery is not removable). Alternatively, you may opt out by
calling 1-888-987-4357 no later than 30 calendar days from the
date of the first consumer purchaser's purchase of the device
and providing the same information. These are the only two
forms of notice that will be effective to opt out of this dispute
resolution procedure. Opting out of this dispute resolution
procedure will not affect your use of the device or its preloaded
Software, and you will continue to enjoy the benefits of this
license.
16. ENTIRE AGREEMENT; SEVERABILITY. This EULA is the entire
agreement between you and Samsung Electronics Co. relating to
the Software and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous oral
or written communications, proposals and representations with
respect to the Software or any other subject matter covered by
this EULA. If any provision of this EULA is held to be void, invalid,
unenforceable or illegal, the other provisions shall continue in full
force and effect.
