THIS MODEL PHONE MEETS THE GOVERNMENT’S
REQUIREMENTS FOR EXPOSURE TO RADIO WAVES.
Your 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 is 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 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 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.
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 body-worn SAR values
were obtained by using Kyocera Wireless Corp.
[KWC] supplied and approved universal pouch
CV90-61344-02.
Body-worn measurements differ among phone
models, depending upon availability of accessories
and FCC requirements. While there may be
differences between the 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 at http://www.fcc.gov/oet/fccid
after searching on the FCC ID: OVFKWC-KX9D.
Additional information on SAR can be found on the
Cellular Telecommunications and Internet
Association (CTIA) web-site at
http://www.wow-com.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.
Caution
The user is cautioned that changes or modifications
not expressly approved by the party responsible for
compliance could void the warranty and user’s
authority to operate the equipment.

• fueling areas such as gas stations
• below deck on boats
• transfer or storage facilities for fuel or
chemicals
• 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
• any other area where you would normally be
advised to turn off your vehicle engine
If the screen seems frozen and the keypad does not
respond to keypresses, reset the phone by
completing the following steps:
1. Remove the battery door.
2. Remove and replace the battery.
If the problem persists, return the phone to the
dealer for service.
Use with care
Use only in normal position (to ear). Avoid dropping,
hitting, bending, or sitting on the phone.
Keep phone dry
If the phone gets wet, turn the power off immediately
and contact your dealer. Water damage may not be
covered under warranty.
iv
Accessories
Use only Kyocera-approved accessories with
Kyocera phones. Use of any unauthorized
accessories may be dangerous and will invalidate the
phone warranty if said accessories cause damage or
a defect to the phone.
Radio Frequency (RF) energy
Your telephone is a radio transmitter and receiver.
When it is on, it receives and sends out RF energy.
Virgin Mobile’s network controls the power of the
RF signal. This power level can range from 0.006 to
0.6 watts.
In August 1996, the U.S. Federal Communications
Commission (FCC) adopted RF exposure guidelines
with safety levels for hand-held wireless phones.
These guidelines are consistent with the safety
standards previously set by both U.S. and
international standards bodies in the
following reports:
• ANSI C95.1
(American National Standards Institute, 1992)
• NCRP Report 86
(National Council on Radiation Protection and
Measurements, 1986)
• ICNIRP (International Commission on NonIonizing Radiation Protection, 1996)
Your phone complies with the standards set by these
reports and the FCC guidelines.
E911 mandates
Where service is available, this handset complies
with the Phase I and Phase II E911 Mandates issued
by the FCC.

Hearing-Aid Compatibility (HAC) Features
of this Phone
This Virgin Mobile phone has been certified as
receiving an M4 rating for hearing aid-compatibility
performance. While there is no guarantee, digital
wireless phones that receive a minimum of an M3
rating should provide acceptable performance with
most hearing aids. Hearing loss and hearing aids are
highly individualized, however, so optimal
performance cannot be guaranteed. Other factors,
such as type of hearing aid device or degree of
hearing loss, also can affect a phone’s performance
for a particular user.
Hearing Aids and Wireless Phones
A hearing aid uses a microphone to collect
and convert sound waves to electrical signals.
The hearing aid then amplifies and converts the
electrical signals back to audible sounds for the
hearing aid user to hear. Radiofrequency (RF)
emissions generated by digital wireless phones often
interfere with the operation of a hearing aid’s
microphone, distorting the amplified audible sound.
In addition, hearing aid microphones tend to collect
ambient noise and amplify these sounds, interfering
with the desired audio transmission.
ANSI Standard
To diminish interference between wireless phones
and hearing aids, the FCC requires wireless carriers
to offer phones that meet the American National
Standards Institute (ANSI) C63.19 standard for
reduced RF emissions. Wireless phones that comply
with the FCC’s hearing aid-compatibility (HAC)
regulations must receive a minimum rating of “M3” for
RF emissions under the ANSI C63.19 standard. The
“M” rating refers to the phone’s RF emissions level for
use with hearing aids operating in the microphone
setting. The higher the phone’s “M” rating, the more
likely the phone is compatible with a hearing aid
operating in the microphone setting. Hearing aids
also have ratings similar to wireless phones.
Most newer hearing aid models receive at least
an M2 rating.
User Guide for OYSTR
To determine the level of compatibility between your
hearing aid and this Virgin Mobile HAC-certified
phone, combine the M rating of your hearing aid and
the M4 rating of this phone. For example, if you pair
an M3 hearing aid with this M4 phone, you will
achieve a combined rating of seven.
• Any combined rating equal to or greater than 6
provides excellent performance.
• Any combined rating equal to 5 offers
good performance.
• Any combined rating equal to 4 offers
acceptable performance.
Please visit our website www.virginmobileusa.com
if you have any additional questions about hearing
aid-compatibility.
