20 minutes. Contact customer service if you still cannot power on the phone after
prolonged charging.
• Press and hold the Power/End Key to turn on your phone.

For Your Safety
Radio Frequency (RF) Energy
This phone 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
United States.
During SAR testing, this device was set to transmit at its highest certified power level in
all tested frequency bands, and placed in positions that simulate RF exposure in usage
against the head with no separation, and near the body with the separation of 0.4 inches
(10 mm). 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 phone is designed to operate at multiple power levels so as to use only the
power required to reach the network. In general, the closer you are to a wireless base
station antenna, the lower the power output.
The exposure standard for wireless 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.
This device complies with SAR for general population/uncontrolled exposure limits
in ANSI/IEEE C95.1-1992 and has been tested in accordance with the measurement
methods and procedures specified in IEEE1528.
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this model phone with all
reported SAR levels evaluated as in compliance with the FCC RF exposure guidelines.
SAR information on this model phone 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:
SRQ-Z353VL.
For this device, the highest reported SAR value for usage against the head is 0.49 W/kg,
for usage near the body is 0.96 W/kg.
While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various phones and at various
positions, they all meet the government requirements.
SAR compliance for body-worn operation is based on a separation distance of 0.6 inches
(15 mm) between the unit and the human body. Carry this device at least 0.6 inches
(15 mm) away from your body to ensure RF exposure level compliant or lower to the
100
For Your Safety
reported level. To support body-worn operation, choose the belt clips or holsters, which
do not contain metallic components, to maintain a separation of 0.6 inches (15 mm)
between this device and your body.
RF exposure compliance with any body-worn accessory, which contains metal, was not
tested and certified, and use such body-worn accessory should be avoided.
FCC Regulations
This device complies with part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following
two conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device
must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired
operation.
This equipment 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.
•C
onnect 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.
CAUTION: Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the manufacturer could
void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.
101
For Your Safety
Hearing Aid Compatibility (HAC) Regulations for Mobile Phones
In 2003, the FCC adopted rules to make digital wireless telephones compatible with
hearing aids and cochlear implants. Although analog wireless phones do not usually
cause interference with hearing aids or cochlear implants, digital wireless phones
sometimes do because of electromagnetic energy emitted by the phone’s antenna,
backlight, or other components. Your phone is compliant with FCC HAC regulations
(ANSI C63.19-2011).
While some wireless phones are used near some hearing devices (hearing aids and
cochlear implants), users may detect a buzzing, humming, or whining noise. Some
hearing devices are more immune than others to this interference noise, and phones
also vary in the amount of interference they generate. The wireless telephone industry
has developed ratings for some of their mobile phones to assist hearing device users in
finding phones that may be compatible with their hearing devices. Not all phones have
been rated. Phones that have been rated have a label on the box. These ratings are not
guaranteed. Results will vary, depending on the level of immunity of your hearing device
and the degree of your hearing loss. If your hearing device happens to be vulnerable to
interference, you may not be able to use a rated phone successfully. Trying out the phone
with your hearing device is the best way to evaluate it for your personal needs.
This phone has been tested and rated for use with hearing aids for some of the wireless
technologies that it uses. However, there may be some newer wireless technologies used
in this phone that have not been tested yet for use with hearing aids. It is important to
try the different features of this phone thoroughly and in different locations, using your
hearing aid or cochlear implant, to determine if you hear any interfering noise. Consult
your service provider or the manufacturer of this phone for information on hearing aid
compatibility. If you have questions about return or exchange policies, consult your
service provider or phone retailer.
M-Ratings: Phones rated M3 or M4 meet FCC requirements and are likely to generate
less interference with hearing devices than phones that are not labeled. M4 is the better/
higher of the two ratings.
102
For Your Safety
T-Ratings: Phones rated T3 or T4 meet FCC requirements and are likely to be more
usable with a hearing device’s telecoil (“T Switch” or “Telephone Switch”) than unrated
phones. T4 is the better/higher of the two ratings. (Note that not all hearing devices
contain telecoils.)
Your Z353VL has been tested for hearing aid device compatibility and has an M4/T4 rating.
Hearing devices may also be measured for immunity to this type of interference. Your
hearing device manufacturer or hearing health professional may help you find results for
your hearing device.
For additional information about the FCC’s actions with regard to hearing aid compatible
wireless devices and other steps the FCC has taken to ensure that individuals with
disabilities have access to telecommunications services, please go to www.fcc.gov/cgb/dro.

For Your Safety
Radio Frequency Interference
General Statement on Interference
Care must be taken when using the phone in close proximity to personal medical
devices, such as pacemakers and hearing aids. Please consult your doctor and the device
manufacturers to determine if the operation of your phone may interfere with the
operation of your medical devices.
Pacemakers
For Your Safety
Interference in Vehicles
Please note that because of possible interference with electronic equipment, some
vehicle manufacturers forbid the use of mobile phones in their vehicles unless a handsfree kit with an external antenna is included in the installation.
Explosive Environments
Gas Stations and Explosive Atmospheres
Pacemaker manufacturers recommend that a minimum separation of 15 cm be
maintained between a mobile phone and a pacemaker to avoid potential interference
with the pacemaker. To achieve this, use the phone on the opposite ear to your
pacemaker and do not carry it in a breast pocket.
In locations with potentially explosive atmospheres, obey all posted signs to turn off
wireless devices such as your phone or other radio equipment. Areas with potentially
explosive atmospheres include fueling areas, below decks on boats, fuel or chemical
transfer or storage facilities, areas where the air contains chemicals or particles, such as
grain, dust, or metal powders.
Hearing Aids
Blasting Caps and Areas
People with hearing aids or other cochlear implants may experience interfering noises
when using wireless devices or when one is nearby. The level of interference will depend
on the type of hearing device and the distance from the interference source. Increasing
the separation between them may reduce the interference. You may also consult your
hearing aid manufacturer to discuss alternatives.
Medical Equipment
Power off your mobile phone or wireless device when in a blasting area or in areas posted
power off “two-way radios” or “electronic devices” to avoid interfering with blasting
operations.
WARNING: This product contains a chemical known to the State of California to cause
cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm.
Turn off your wireless device when requested to do so in hospitals, clinics or healthcare
facilities. These requests are designed to prevent possible interference with sensitive
medical equipment.
Aircraft
Turn off your wireless device whenever you are instructed to do so by airport or airline
staff. Consult the airline staff about the use of wireless devices onboard the aircraft. If
your device offers airplane mode, this must be enabled prior to boarding an aircraft.
