Important: Talk and standby times are estimates only. Actual times are affected by, for example, network conditions,
device settings, features being used, battery condition, and temperature.
Battery and charger safety
Always switch the device off and unplug the charger before removing the battery. To unplug a charger or an accessory, hold and
pull the plug, not the cord.
When your charger is not in use, unplug it. If left unused, a fully charged battery will lose its charge over time.
Always keep the battery between 15°C and 25°C (59°F and 77°F). Extreme temperatures reduce the capacity and lifetime of the
battery. A device with a hot or cold battery may not work temporarily.
Accidental short-circuiting can happen when a metallic object touches the metal strips on the battery. This may damage the
battery or the other object.
Do not dispose of batteries in a fire as they may explode. Obey local regulations. Recycle when possible. Do not dispose as
household waste.
Do not dismantle, cut, crush, bend, puncture, or otherwise damage the battery in any way. If a battery leaks, do not let liquid
touch skin or eyes. If this happens, immediately flush the affected areas with water, or seek medical help. Do not modify, attempt
to insert foreign objects into the battery, or immerse or expose it to water or other liquids. Batteries may explode if damaged.
Use the battery and charger for their intended purposes only. Improper use, or use of unapproved or incompatible batteries or
chargers may present a risk of fire, explosion, or other hazard, and may invalidate any approval or warranty. If you believe the
battery or charger is damaged, take it to a service centre before continuing to use it. Never use a damaged battery or charger.
Only use the charger indoors.
Additional safety information
Small children
Your device and its accessories are not toys. They may contain small parts. Keep them out of the reach of small children.
Medical devices
Operation of radio transmitting equipment, including wireless phones, may interfere with inadequately shielded medical devices'
function. Consult a physician or the medical device's manufacturer to determine if it is adequately shielded from external radio

Implanted medical devices
To avoid potential interference, manufacturers of implanted medical devices recommend a minimum separation of 15.3
centimetres (6 inches) between a wireless device and the medical device. Persons who have such devices should:
Always keep the wireless device more than 15.3 centimetres (6 inches) from the medical device.
Not carry the wireless device in a breast pocket.
Hold the wireless device to the ear opposite the medical device.
Switch the wireless device off if there is any reason to suspect that interference is taking place.
Follow the manufacturer directions for the implanted medical device.
If you have any questions about using your wireless device with an implanted medical device, consult your health care provider.
Accessibility solutions

Warning: When you use the headset, your ability to hear outside sounds may be affected. Do not use the headset where
it can endanger your safety.
Some wireless devices may interfere with some hearing aids.
Protect your device from harmful content
Your device may be exposed to viruses and other harmful content. Take the following precautions:
Be cautious when opening messages. They may contain malicious software or otherwise be harmful to your device or
Be cautious when accepting connectivity requests, browsing the internet, or downloading content. Do not accept Bluetooth
connections from sources you do not trust.
Only install and use services and software from sources that you trust and that offer adequate security and protection.
Install antivirus and other security software on your device and any connected computer. Only use one antivirus app at a
time. Using more may affect performance and operation of the device and/or computer.
If you access preinstalled bookmarks and links to third party internet sites, take the appropriate precautions. Nokia does
not endorse or assume liability for such sites.
Radio signals may affect improperly installed or inadequately shielded electronic systems in vehicles. For more info, check with
the manufacturer of your vehicle or its equipment.
Only qualified personnel should install the device in a vehicle. Faulty installation may be dangerous and invalidate your warranty.
Check regularly that all wireless device equipment in your vehicle is mounted and operating properly. Do not store or carry
flammable or explosive materials in the same compartment as the device, its parts, or accessories. Do not place your device or
accessories in the air bag deployment area.
Potentially explosive environments
Switch your device off in potentially explosive environments, such as near petrol pumps. Sparks may cause an explosion or fire
resulting in injury or death. Note restrictions in areas with fuel; chemical plants; or where blasting operations are in progress.
Areas with a potentially explosive environment may not be clearly marked. These usually are areas where you are advised to
switch your engine off, below deck on boats, chemical transfer or storage facilities, and where the air contains chemicals or
particles. Check with the manufacturers of vehicles using liquefied petroleum gas (such as propane or butane) if this device can
be safely used in their vicinity.
Certification information (SAR)
This mobile device meets international guidelines for exposure to radio waves.
© 2013 Nokia. All rights reserved.
Your mobile device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed not to exceed the limits for exposure to radio waves (radio
frequency electromagnetic fields), recommended by international guidelines from the independent scientific organization
ICNIRP. These guidelines incorporate substantial safety margins assure the protection of all persons regardless of age and health.
The exposure guidelines are based on the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR), which is an expression of the amount of radio frequency
(RF) power deposited in the head or body when the device is transmitting. The ICNIRP SAR limit for mobile devices is 2.0 W/kg
averaged over 10 grams of tissue.
SAR tests are carried out with the device in standard operating positions, transmitting at its highest certified power level, in all
its frequency bands. The maximum recorded SAR values for this device are:
Maximum SAR value
Frequency bands used when Maximum
SAR value was recorded
When held against the head
1.16 W/kg over 10g
When operated at a separation distance
of 1.5 centimetres (5/8 inch) from the
0.76 W/kg over 10g
This device meets RF exposure guidelines when used against the head or when positioned at least 1.5 centimetres (5/8 inch)
away from the body. When a carry case, belt clip or other form of device holder is used for body-worn operation, it should not
contain metal and should provide at least the above stated separation distance from the body.
To send data or messages, a good connection to the network is needed. Sending may be delayed until such a connection is
available. Follow the separation distance instructions until the sending is finished.
During general use, the SAR values are usually well below the values stated above. This is because, for purposes of system
efficiency and to minimise interference on the network, the operating power of your mobile is automatically decreased when
full power is not needed for the call. The lower the power output, the lower the SAR value.
Device models may have different versions and more than one value. Component and design changes may occur over time and
some changes could affect SAR values. The latest available SAR information for this and other Nokia device models can be found
The World Health Organization (WHO) has stated that current scientific information does not indicate the need for any special
precautions when using mobile devices. If you are interested in reducing your exposure, they recommend you limit your usage
or use a hands-free kit to keep the device away from your head and body. For more information and explanations and discussions
on RF exposure, go to the WHO website at

Talk time:
Up to 4.5 hours (WCDMA) / 12 hours (GSM).
Up to 33 days (WCDMA) / 31 days (GSM).

battery is exposed, network conditions, and many other factors, and may be significantly shorter than those specified
above. Ringing tones, hands free call handling, use in digital mode, and other features will also consume the battery, and
the amount of time a device is used for calls will affect its stand-by time. Likewise, the amount of time that the device is
turned on and in the standby mode will affect its talk time.
