Protecting Your Phone With Encryption
You can encrypt all the data on your phone: Google accounts,
application data, music and other media, downloaded information,
and so on. If you do, you must enter a numeric PIN or a
password each time you power on your phone.
WARNING!
Encryption is irreversible. The only way to revert to an
unencrypted phone is to perform a factory data reset, which
erases all your data.
Encryption provides additional protection in case your phone is
stolen, and may be required or recommended in some
organizations. Consult your system administrator before turning it
on. In many cases the PIN or password you set for encryption is
controlled by the system administrator.
32
Before turning on encryption, prepare as follows:
●
Set a lock screen PIN or password.
●
Charge the battery.
●
Keep the phone connected to the charger.
●
Schedule an hour or more for the encryption process: you
must not interrupt it or you will lose some or all of your data.
When you're ready to turn on encryption:
1. Touch the Home Key >
> Settings > Security >
Encrypt phone.
2. Read the information about encryption carefully.
The Encrypt phone button is dimmed if your battery is not
charged or your phone's not plugged in.
If you change your mind about encrypting your phone, touch
the Back Key.
WARNING!
If you interrupt the encryption process, you will lose data.
3. Touch Encrypt phone.
4. Enter your lock screen PIN or password and touch Next.
5. Touch Encrypt phone again.
The encryption process starts. Encryption can take an hour or
more, during which time your phone may restart several times.
When encryption is completed, you're prompted to enter your
PIN or password.
Subsequently, you must enter your PIN or password each time
you power on your phone in order to decrypt it.

Radio Frequency (RF) Energy
This phone 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 United
States, Industry Canada of Canada.
172
During SAR testing, this device is set to transmit at its highest
certified power level in all tested frequency bands, and placed in
positions that simulate RF exposure in usage against the head
with no separation, and near the body with the separation of 10
mm. Although the SAR is determined at the highest certified
power level, the actual SAR level of the device while operating
can be well below the maximum value. This is because the
phone is designed to operate at multiple power levels so as to
use only the power required to reach the network. In general, the
closer you are to a wireless base station antenna, the lower the
power output.
The exposure standard for wireless devices 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, and 1.6 W/kg by
Industry Canada.
This device is compliance with SAR for general
population/uncontrolled exposure limits in ANSI/IEEE
C95.1-1992 and Canada RSS 102 and had been tested in
accordance with the measurement methods and procedures
specified in IEEE1528, and Canada RSS 102. This device has
been tested, and meets the FCC, IC RF exposure guidelines
when tested with the device directly contacted to the body.
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this model
phone with all reported SAR levels evaluated as in compliance
with the FCC RF exposure guidelines. SAR information on this
model phone is on file with the FCC and can be found under the
Display Grant section of www.fcc.gov/oet/ea/fccid after searching
on FCC ID: SRQ-Z826.
173
For this device, the highest reported SAR value for usage against
the head is 0.78 W/kg, for usage near the body is 1.23 W/kg.
While there may be differences between the SAR levels of
various phones and at various positions, they all meet the
government requirement.
SAR compliance for body-worn operation is based on a
separation distance of 15 mm between the unit and the human
body. Carry this device at least 15 mm away from your body to
ensure RF exposure level compliant or lower to the reported level.
To support body-worn operation, choose the belt clips or holsters,
which do not contain metallic components, to maintain a
separation of 15 mm between this device and your body.
RF exposure compliance with any body-worn accessory, which
contains metal, was not tested and certified, and using such
body-worn accessory should be avoided.
FCC Regulations
This device complies with part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is
subject to the following two conditions: (1) This device may not
cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any

a pacemaker to avoid potential interference with the pacemaker.
182
To achieve this, use the phone on the opposite ear to your
pacemaker and do not carry it in a breast pocket.
Hearing Aids
People with hearing aids or other cochlear implants may
experience interfering noises when using wireless devices or
when one is nearby.
The level of interference depends on the type of the hearing
device and the distance from the interference source. Increasing
the separation between them may reduce the interference. You
may also consult your hearing aid manufacturer to discuss
alternatives.
Medical Equipment
Switch off your wireless device when you are requested to do
so in hospitals, clinics or health care facilities. These requests
are designed to prevent possible interference with sensitive
medical equipment.
