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-D390n 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 10g of tissue.
• The highest SAR value for this model phone tested for use at the ear is 0.501 W/kg (10g) and when worn on
the body is 0.527 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 bodyworn 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 completed.
Product care and maintenance
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.
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
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 0ºC and 40ºC, 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.
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

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 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

Your Home screen
Touch screen tips
Here are some tips on how to navigate on your phone.
Tap or touch – 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 tapping 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 tap 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 double-tap 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 while
viewing the picture.
Pinch-to-Zoom – Use your index finger and thumb in a pinching or spreading motion to zoom in or out when
using the browser or Maps, or when browsing pictures.
Rotate the screen – From many applications and menus, the orientation of the screen adjusts to the device's
physical orientation.
• To select an item, tap the center of the icon.
• Do not press too hard; the tap 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

LG Mobile Phone software update via Over-the-Air (OTA)
This feature allows you to conveniently update your phone's software to a newer version via OTA, without
connecting using a USB data cable. This feature will only be available if and when LG makes a newer firmware
version available for your device.
You should first check the software version on your mobile phone: Settings > About phone > Update Center
> Software Update > Check now for update.
NOTE: Your personal data from internal phone storage—including information about your
Google account and any other accounts, your system/application data and settings, any
downloaded applications and your DRM licence—might be lost in the process of updating
your phone's software. Therefore, LG recommends that you backup your personal data
before updating your phone's software. LG does not take responsibility for any loss of
personal data.
NOTE: This feature depends on your network service provider, region and country.
