Exposure to radio frequency
Radio wave exposure and Specific
Absorption Rate (SAR) information.
This mobile phone model LG-P705 has been
designed to comply with applicable safety
requirements for exposure to radio waves.
These requirements are based on scientific
guidelines that include safety margins
designed to assure the safety of all persons,
regardless of age and health.
•The radio wave exposure guidelines
employ a unit of measurement known as
the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. Tests
for SAR are conducted using standardised
methods with the phone transmitting at
its highest certified power level in all used
frequency bands.
•While there may be differences between
the SAR levels of various LG phone models,
they are all designed to meet the relevant
guidelines for exposure to radio waves.
•The SAR limit recommended by the
International Commission on Non-Ionizing
Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) is 2 W/kg
averaged over 10g of tissue.
•The highest SAR value for this model
phone tested by DASY4 for use at the ear
is 0.762 W/kg (10g) and when worn on
the body is 0.534 W/Kg (10g).
•This device meets RF exposure guidelines
when used either in the normal use
position against the ear or when positioned
at least 1.5 cm away from the body. When
a carry case, belt clip or holder is used for
body-worn operation, it should not contain
metal and should position the product
at least 1.5 cm away from your body. In
order to transmit data files or messages,
this device requires a quality connection to
the network. In some cases, transmission
of data files or messages may be delayed
until such a connection is available. Ensure
the above separation distance instructions
are followed until the transmission is
Guidelines for safe and efficient use

accessories approved for use with this
particular phone model. The use of any
other types may invalidate any approval
or warranty applying to the phone and
may be dangerous.
•Do not disassemble this unit. Take it to a
qualified service technician when repair
work is required.
•Repairs under warranty, at LG's discretion,

Road safety
Electronics devices
All mobile phones may receive interference,
which could affect performance.
•Do not use your mobile phone near medical
equipment without requesting permission.
Avoid placing the phone over pacemakers,
for example, in your breast pocket.

Guidelines for safe and efficient use
•When your vehicle is equipped with an
air bag, do not obstruct with installed or
portable wireless equipment. It can cause
the air bag to fail or cause serious injury
due to improper performance.
•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 of particular
importance when near roads.
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.
•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.
NOTE: Excessive sound pressure from
earphones can cause hearing loss.
Glass Parts
Some parts of your mobile device are made
of glass. This glass could break if your
mobile device is dropped on a hard surface
or receives a substantial impact. If the glass
breaks, do not touch or attempt to remove it.
Stop using your mobile device until the glass
is replaced by an authorised service provider.
Blasting area
Do not use the phone where blasting is in
progress. Observe restrictions and follow any
regulations or rules.
Potentially explosive
•Do not use your phone at a refueling point.
•Do not use near fuel or chemicals.
•Do not transport or store flammable
