Compliance Information
FCC NOTICE
The following statement applies to all products that have received FCC approval.
Applicable products bear the FCC logo, and/or an FCC ID in the format FCC ID: GSSVS13761 on the product label.
This mobile device complies with part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the
following two conditions: (1) This mobile device may not cause harmful interference,
and (2) this mobile device must accept any interference received, including
interference that may cause undesired operation. This mobile device has been tested
and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of
the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against
harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and
can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with
the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However,
there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this
equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can
be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to
correct the interference by one or more of the following measures
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the
receiver is connected.
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for
compliance could void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.
The antenna(s) used for this transmitter must not be colocated or operating in
conjunction with any other antenna or transmitter.
RF EXPOSURE INFORMATION (FCC SAR)
DEVICE MEETS THE GOVERNMENT’S REQUIREMENTS FOR EXPOSURE TO
RADIO WAVES.This device 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.
The exposure standard for wireless mobile 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. Tests for SAR are conducted using standard operating positions accepted by
the FCC with the device 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 device while operating can be well below the maximum
value. This is because the device is designed to operate at multiple power levels so as
to use only the poser required
to reach the network. In general, the closer you are to a wireless base station antenna,
the lower the power output.
The highest SAR value for the device as reported to the FCC when tested for use
when worn on the body, as described in this user guide, is 1.23 W/kg. (Body-worn
measurements differ among device models, depending upon available accessories
and FCC requirements.)

i
While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various devices and at
various positions, they all meet the government requirement.
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this device with all reported
SAR levels evaluated as in compliance with the FCC RF exposure guidelines. SAR
information on this device 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: GSS-VS13761.
For Canada
This Class B digital apparatus complies with Canadian ICES-003.
Cet appareil numérique de la classe B est conforme à la norme NMB-003 du Canada.
This Category II radiocommunication device complies with Industry Canada Standard
RSS-310.
Ce dispositif de radiocommunication de catégorie II respecte la norme CNR-310
d’Industrie Canada.
Cwarning statement
Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) this device may not cause
interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference, including interference
that may cause undesired operation of the device.
Son fonctionnement est sujet aux deux conditions suivantes: (1) Cet appareil ne doit
pas provoquer d’interférences néfastes, et (2) cet appareil doit accepter toutes les
interférences reçues, y compris celles pouvant provoquer un fonctionnement
indésirable.
IMPORTANT NOTE: IC Radiation Exposure Statement
This EUT is compliance with SAR for general population/uncontrolled exposure limits
in IC RSS-102 and had been tested in accordance with the measurement methods
and procedures specified in IEEE 1528. This equipment should be installed and
operated with minimum distance 0.5cm between the radiator & your body.
This device and its antenna(s) must not be co-located or operating in conjunction with
any other antenna or transmitter.
The County Code Selection feature is disabled for products marketed in the US/
Canada.
For product available in the USA/ Canada markets, only channel 1~11 can be
operated. Selection of other channels is not possible.

CE SAR Information
THIS MOBILE DEVICE MEETS GUIDELINES FOR EXPOSURE TO RADIO WAVES.
Your mobile 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 mobile devices employ a unit of measurement known as
the Specific Absorption Rate or SAR. The SAR limit stated in the ICNIRP guidelines is
2.0 W/kg averaged over 10 grams of tissue. Test for body worn SAR, the positions of
the device are at a minimum of 1.5 cm from the body 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. The
highest SAR value under the ICNIRP guidelines for use of the device at the body is
0.43 W/kg. Use of device accessories and enhancements may result in different SAR
values. SAR values may vary depending on national reporting and testing
requirements and the network band.
CE Conformity for European Countries
The device complies with the EMC Directive 2004/108/EC and Low
Voltage Directive 2006/95/EC.
Following information is only for EU-member states:
The mark shown to the right is in compliance with the Waste Electrical and
Electronic Equipment Directive 2002/96/EC (WEEE).
The mark indicates the requirement NOT to dispose the equipment as
unsorted municipal waste, but use the return and collection systems according
to local law.
If the batteries, accumulators and button cells included with this equipment,
display the chemical symbol Hg, Cd, or Pb, then it means that the battery has a
heavy metal content of more than 0.0005% Mercury, or more than 0.002%
Cadmium, or more than 0.004% Lead.
