Guidelines for safe and efficient use
Please read these simple guidelines. Not following these guidelines may be
dangerous or illegal.
Should a fault occur, a software tool is built into your device that will gather
a fault log. This tool gathers only data specific to the fault, such as signal
strength and applications loaded. The log is used only to help determine the
cause of the fault. These logs are encrypted and can only be accessed by an
authorized LG Repair centre should you need to return your device for repair.
Exposure to radio frequency energy
Radio wave exposure and Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) information.
This tablet device model LG-V500 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 (SAR). Tests for SAR are conducted using
standardised methods with the device transmitting at its highest certified
power level in all used frequency bands.
•While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various
LG device models, they are all designed to meet the relevant guidelines for
exposure to radio waves.
•The SAR limit recommended by the International Commission on NonIonizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) is 2 W/kg averaged over 10 g of
tissue.
7
•The highest SAR value for this device when worn on the body, as described
in this user guide, is 0.720 W/kg.
•This device meets RF exposure guidelines when used either in the normal
use position against the ear or when positioned at least 0.00 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 0.00 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
completed.

LG Backup
About backing up and restoring device data
It is recommended that you regularly create and save a backup file on the
internal storage, especially before updating any software. Maintaining a
current backup file in storage memory may allow you to recover device data
if your device is lost, stolen, or corrupted by an unforeseen issue.
This LG Backup application is supported between LG smartphones and
tablets, other S/W or OS versions. As a result, when you buy the new LG
smartphones and tablets, you can backup the current device data to your
new device.
If you have the Backup application preloaded on your smartphones and
tablets, you can backup and restore most of your data, including downloaded
and pre-installed applications, bookmarks, calendar entries, contacts, home
screen settings, and system settings. You may also:
•Perform a manual LG Backup of your device.
•Schedule automatic backups of your device.
•Restore your device data.
NOTE: Please note that the Backup function does not support the backup
of User data & Media data (Picture/Video/Music). Please backup those
files using the Media sync (MTP). Connect your tablet to your computer
using a USB cable and touch Media sync (MTP).
Warning! To protect against unexpected shutoff during backup or restore
operations, due to insufficient battery power, you should always keep your
battery fully charged.
