Taking care of your device
Your device is the product of superior
design and craftsmanship and should be
treated with care. The following
suggestions will help you protect your
warranty coverage.
• Keep the device dry. Precipitation,
humidity, and all types of liquids or
moisture can contain minerals that
will corrode electronic circuits. If your
device does get wet, allow it to dry
• Do not use or store the device in
dusty, dirty areas. Its moving parts
and electronic components can be
• Do not store the device in high or cold
temperature. High temperatures can
shorten the life of electronic devices,
damage batteries, and warp or melt
certain plastics. When the device
warms to its normal temperature
from a cold temperature, moisture
can form inside the device and
damage electronic circuit boards.
• Do not attempt to open the device
other than as instructed in this guide.
• Do not drop, knock, or shake the
device. Rough handling can break
internal circuit boards and fine
• Do not use harsh chemicals, cleaning
solvents, or strong detergents to
clean the device. Only use a soft,
clean, dry cloth to clean the surface of
the device.
• Do not paint the device. Paint can
clog the moving parts and prevent
proper operation.
These suggestions apply equally to your
device or any accessory.
Always return your used electronic
products, batteries, and packaging
materials to dedicated collection points.
This way you help prevent uncontrolled
garbage disposal and promote the
recycling of materials. Check product
environmental information and how to
recycle your Nokia products at, or
The crossed-out wheeled-bin
symbol on your product,
battery, literature, or packaging
reminds you that all electrical
and electronic products,
batteries, and accumulators must be
taken to separate collection at the end of
their working life. This requirement
applies in the European Union. Do not
dispose of these products as unsorted
municipal garbage. For more
environmental information, see the
product Eco-Declarations at
Additional safety information
■ Small children
■ Medical devices
Your device and its accessories are not
toys. They may contain small parts. Keep
them out of the reach of small children.
Operation of any radio transmitting
equipment, including wireless phones,
may interfere with the function of
inadequately protected medical devices.
Consult a physician or the manufacturer
of the medical device to determine
whether they are adequately shielded
from external RF energy. Switch off your
device when regulations posted instruct
you to do so. Hospitals or health care
facilities may use equipment sensitive to
external RF energy.
■ Operating
This device model has been tested and
meets RF exposure guidelines when
positioned at least 0.5 centimeter
(1/5 inch) away from the body when
plugged directly into a USB port on the
host device or used at the end of the
Nokia Connectivity Cable CA-175D that
may be supplied in the sales package.
Implanted medical devices
Manufacturers of medical devices
recommend a minimum separation of
15.3 centimeters (6 inches) between
a wireless device and an implanted
medical device, such as a pacemaker or
implanted cardioverter defibrillator, to
avoid potential interference with the
medical device. Persons who have such
devices should:
• Always keep the wireless device more
than 15.3 centimeters (6 inches) from
the medical device.
• Turn the wireless device off if there
is any reason to suspect that
interference is taking place.
• Follow the manufacturer directions
for the implanted medical device.
If you have any questions about using
your wireless device with an implanted
medical device, consult your health care
Hearing aids
Some digital wireless devices may
interfere with some hearing aids.
■ Vehicles
RF signals may affect improperly
installed or inadequately shielded
electronic systems in motor vehicles such
as electronic fuel injection, electronic
antilock braking, electronic speed
control, and air bag systems. For more
information, check with the
manufacturer of your vehicle or its
Only qualified personnel should service
the device. Faulty service may be
dangerous and may invalidate your
warranty. Do not store or carry
flammable liquids, gases, or explosive
materials in the same compartment as
the device, its parts, or accessories.
Switch off your device before boarding
an aircraft. The use of wireless
teledevices in an aircraft may be
dangerous to the operation of the
aircraft and may be illegal.
■ Potentially explosive
■ Certification
information (SAR)
Switch off your device in any area with
a potentially explosive atmosphere.
Obey all posted instructions. Sparks in
such areas could cause an explosion or
fire resulting in bodily injury or death.
Switch off the device at refueling points
such as near gas pumps at gas stations.
Observe restrictions in fuel depots,
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
areas where you would be advised to turn
off your vehicle engine, below deck on
boats, chemical transfer or storage
facilities and where the air contains
chemicals or particles such as grain, dust,
or metal powders. You should check with
the manufacturers of vehicles using
liquefied petroleum gas (such as propane
or butane) to determine if this device can
be safely used in their vicinity.
This cellular phone meets guidelines for
exposure to radio waves.
Your device is a radio transmitter and
receiver. It is designed not to exceed the
limits for exposure to radio waves
recommended by international
guidelines. These guidelines were
developed by the independent scientific
organization ICNIRP and include safety
margins designed to assure the
protection of all persons, regardless of
age and health.
The exposure guidelines for cellular
phones employ a unit of measurement
known as the Specific Absorption Rate or
SAR. The SAR limit stated in the ICNIRP
guidelines is 2.0 watts/kilogram (W/kg)
averaged over 10 grams of tissue. Tests
for SAR are conducted using standard
operating positions with the device
transmitting at its highest certified
power level in all tested frequency bands.
The actual SAR level of an operating
device can be below the maximum value
because the device is designed to use
only the power required to reach the
network. That amount changes
depending on a number of factors such
as how close you are to a network
base station.
SAR values may vary depending on
national reporting and testing
requirements and the network band.
Additional SAR information may be
provided under product information at
This device model has been tested and
meets RF exposure guidelines when
positioned at least 0.5 centimeter
(1/5 inch) away from the body when
plugged directly into a USB port on the
host device or used at the end of the
Nokia Connectivity Cable CA-175D that
may be supplied in the sales package.
Your device is also designed to meet the
requirements for exposure to radio waves
established by the Federal
Communications Commission (USA) and
Industry Canada. These requirements set
a SAR limit of 1.6 W/kg averaged over
one gram of tissue. The highest SAR value
reported under this standard during
product certification when positioned
0.5 cm (1/12.70 cm) away from the body
is 1.08 W/kg.
FCC/Industry Canada notice
Your device may cause TV or radio
interference (for example, when using
a telephone in close proximity to receiving
equipment). The FCC or Industry Canada can
require you to stop using your telephone
if such interference cannot be eliminated.
If you require assistance, contact your local
service facility. 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
interference received, including interference
that may cause undesired operation. Any
changes or modifications not expressly
approved by Nokia could void the user's
authority to operate this equipment. This
transmitter must not be co-located or
operating in conjunction with any other
antenna or transmitter.
