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, cell ID position in
sudden call drop 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 mobile phone model LG-D160 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
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 10 g of tissue.
• The highest SAR value for this model phone tested for use at the ear is 1.120 W/kg
(10 g) and when worn on the body is 0.788 W/Kg (10 g).
• 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
5
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 completed.
Product care and maintenance
WARNING
Only use batteries, chargers and accessories approved for use with this
particular device model. The use of any other types may invalidate any
approval or warranty applying to the device 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.
• 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.
•
6
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.
• Do not use, touch or attempt to remove or fix broken, chipped or cracked glass. Damage
to the glass display due to abuse or misuse is not covered under the warranty.
• 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.
• If your phone gets wet, immediately unplug it to dry off completely. Do not attempt
to accelerate the drying process with an external heating source, such as an oven,
microwave or hair dryer.
• The liquid in your wet phone, changes the color of the product label inside your phone.
Damage to your device as a result of exposure to liquid is not covered under your
warranty.

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.
• Use your phone in temperatures between 0 ºC and 40 ºC, if possible. Exposing your
phone to extremely low or high temperatures may result in damage, malfunction, or even
explosion.
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.
• Pull off the road and park before making or answering a call if driving conditions so
require.
• RF energy may affect some electronic systems in your vehicle such as car stereos and
safety equipment.
• 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.
8
Avoid damage to your hearing
To prevent possible hearing damage, do not listen at high volume levels for long
periods.
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 and headphones 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.
9
Potentially explosive atmospheres
Do not use your phone at a refueling 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.
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.
•
10
Do not disassemble or short-circuit the battery.
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.

Your Home screen
Touch screen tips
Here are some tips on how to navigate on your phone.
Touch or tap – A single finger tap selects items, links, shortcuts and letters on the
on-screen keyboard.
Touch and hold – Touch and hold an item on the screen by touching it and not lifting your
finger until an action occurs. For example, to open a contact's available options, touch and
hold the contact in the Contacts list until the context menu opens.
Drag – Touch and hold an item for a moment and then, without lifting your finger, move
your finger on the screen until you reach the target position. You can drag items on the
Home screen to reposition them.
Swipe or slide – To swipe or slide, quickly move your finger across the surface of the
screen, without pausing when you first touch it (so you don't drag an item instead). For
example, you can slide the screen up or down to scroll through a list or browse through the
different Home screens by swiping from left to right (and vice versa).
Double-tap – Double-tap to zoom on a webpage or a map. For example, quickly doubletap a section of a webpage to adjust that section to fit the width of the screen. You can also
double-tap to zoom in and out when viewing a picture and when using Maps.
Pinch-to-Zoom – Use your index finger and thumb in a pinching or spreading motion to
zoom in or out when using the browser, Maps or when viewing pictures.
Rotate the screen – From many applications and menus, the orientation of the screen
adjusts to the device's physical orientation.
27
NOTE:
• To select an item, tap the center of the icon.
• Do not press too hard; the touch screen is sensitive enough to pick up a
light, yet firm tap.
• Use the tip of your finger to tap the option you want. Be careful not to tap
any other keys.
