Guidelines for safe and efficient use
Please read these simple guidelines.
Not following these guidelines may
be dangerous or illegal.
Exposure to radio frequency
energy
Radio wave exposure and Specific
Absorption Rate (SAR) information
This mobile phone model LP-P970
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 2W/kg averaged over
10g of tissue.
• The highest SAR value for this
model phone tested by DASY4 for
use at the ear is 1.27 W/kg (10g)
and when worn on the body is
1.43 W/Kg(10g).
• SAR data information for
residents in countries/regions
that have adopted the SAR limit
recommended by the Institute of
Electrical and Electronics Engineers
(IEEE), which is 1.6 W/kg averaged
over 1g of tissue.
•

Guidelines for safe and efficient use
Product care and
maintenance
WARNING
•
•
Only use batteries, chargers and
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, may include
replacement parts or boards that
are either new or reconditioned,
provided that they have
functionality equal to that of the
parts being replaced.
• Keep away from electrical
appliances such as TVs, radios
and personal computers.
•
•
6
•
•
•
•
The unit should be kept away from
heat sources such as radiators or
cookers.
Do not drop.
Do not subject this unit to
mechanical vibration or shock.
Switch off the phone in any area
where you are required to by special
regulations. For example, do not use
your phone in hospitals as it may
affect sensitive medical equipment.
Do not handle the phone with wet
hands while it is being charged. It
may cause an electric shock and
can seriously damage your phone.
Do not charge a handset near
flammable material as the handset
can become hot and create a fire
hazard.
Use a dry cloth to clean the
exterior of the unit (do not use
solvents such as benzene, thinner
or alcohol).
Do not charge the phone when it
is on soft furnishings.
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
The phone should be charged in a
well ventilated area.
Do not subject this unit to
excessive smoke or dust.
Do not keep the phone next to
credit cards or transport tickets; it
can affect the information on the
magnetic strips.
Do not tap the screen with a
sharp object as it may damage
the phone.
Do not expose the phone to liquid
or moisture.
Use accessories like earphones
cautiously. Do not touch the
antenna unnecessarily.
Your phone is an electronic device
that generates heat during normal
operation. Extremely prolonged,
direct skin contact in the absence
of adequate ventilation may result
in discomfort or minor burns.
Therefore, use care when handling
your phone during or immediately
after operation.
Efficient phone operation
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.
• Some hearing aids might be
disturbed by mobile phones.
• Minor interference may affect TVs,
radios, PCs etc.
7
Guidelines for safe and efficient use
Road safety
Check the laws and regulations on
the use of mobile phones in the area
when you drive.
• Do not use a hand-held phone
while driving.
• Give full attention to driving.
• Use a hands-free kit, if available.
• Pull off the road and park before
making or answering a call if
driving conditions require you to do
so.
• RF energy may affect some
electronic systems in your vehicle
such as car stereos and safety
equipment.
• If your vehicle is equipped with
an air bag, do not obstruct it with
installed or portable wireless
equipment. This can cause the air
bag to fail or cause serious injury
due to improper performance.
8
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 sounds for
long periods of time. We therefore
recommend that you do not turn the
handset on or off close to your ear.
We also recommend that music and
call volumes are set to a reasonable
level.
•
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
atmospheres
• Do not use your phone at a
refuelling point.
• Do not use near fuel or chemicals.
• Do not transport or store
flammable gas, liquid or explosives
in the same compartment of your
vehicle as your mobile phone or
accessories.
In aircraft
Wireless devices can cause
interference in aircraft.
• Turn your mobile phone off before
boarding any aircraft.
• Do not use it on the ground
without permission from the crew.
Children
Keep the phone in a safe place
out of the reach of small children.
It includes small parts which may
cause a choking hazard if detached.
9
Guidelines for safe and efficient use
Emergency calls
Emergency calls may not be
available on all mobile networks.
Therefore you should never depend
solely on your phone for emergency
calls. Check with your local service
provider.
Battery information and care
• You do not need to completely
discharge the battery before
recharging. Unlike other battery
systems, there is no memory effect
that could compromise the battery’
s performance.
• Use only LG batteries and
chargers. LG chargers are
designed to maximise the battery
life.
• Do not disassemble or short-circuit
the battery.
• Keep the metal contacts of the
battery clean.
10
•
•
•
•
•
•
Replace the battery when it
no longer provides acceptable
performance. The battery pack
may be recharged hundreds of
times before it needs replacing.
Recharge the battery if it has
not been used for a long time to
maximise usability.
Do not expose the battery charger
to direct sunlight or use it in high
humidity, such as in the bathroom.
Do not leave the battery in hot or
cold places, as this may deteriorate
battery performance.
There is risk of explosion if
the battery is replaced with an
incorrect type.
Dispose of used batteries
according to the manufacturer
’s instructions. Please recycle
when possible. Do not dispose as
household waste.
If you need to replace the battery,
take it to the nearest authorised
LG Electronics service point or
dealer for assistance.
• Always unplug the charger from
the wall socket after the phone is
fully charged to save unnecessary
power consumption of the charger.
• Actual battery life will depend on
network configuration, product
settings, usage patterns, battery
and environmental conditions.
•
