Safety
TIA Safety Information
The following is the complete TIA Safety Information for wireless handheld
phones.
Exposure to Radio Frequency Signal
Your wireless handheld portable phone is a low power radio transmitter and
receiver. When ON, it receives and sends out Radio Frequency (RF) signals.
In August, 1996, the Federal Communications Commissions (FCC) adopted
RF exposure guidelines with safety levels for handheld wireless phones.
Those guidelines are consistent with the safety standards previously set by
both U.S. and international standards bodies:
ANSI C95.1 (1992) *
NCRP Report 86 (1986)
ICNIRP (1996)
*American National Standards Institute; National Council on Radiation
Protection and Measurements; International Commission on NonIonizing Radiation Protection
Those standards were based on comprehensive and periodic evaluations
of the relevant scientific literature. For example, over 120 scientists,
engineers, and physicians from universities, government health agencies,
and industry reviewed the available body of research to develop the ANSI
Standard (C95.1).
The design of your phone complies with the FCC guidelines (and those
standards).
Antenna Care
Use only the supplied or an approved replacement antenna. Unauthorized
antennas, modifications, or attachments could damage the phone and may
violate FCC regulations.
Safety
Phone Operation
NORMAL POSITION: Hold the phone as you would any other telephone
with the antenna pointed up and over your shoulder.
Tips on Efficient Operation
For your phone to operate most efficiently:
Don’t touch the antenna unnecessarily when the phone is in use. Contact
with the antenna affects call quality and may cause the phone to operate at
a higher power level than otherwise needed.
Driving
Check the laws and regulations on the use of wireless phones in the areas
where you drive and always obey them. Also, if using your phone while
driving, please observe the following:
O
Give full attention to driving -- driving safely is your first responsibility;
O
Use hands-free operation, if available;
O
Pull off the road and park before making or answering a call if driving
conditions or the law require it.
Electronic Devices
Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from RF signals. However,
certain electronic equipment may not be shielded against the RF signals
from your wireless phone.
Pacemakers
The Health Industry Manufacturers Association recommends that a
minimum separation of six (6) inches be maintained between a handheld
wireless phone and a pacemaker to avoid potential interference with the
pacemaker. These recommendations are consistent with the independent
research by and recommendations of Wireless Technology Research.
143
144
Safety
Persons with pacemakers:
O
Should ALWAYS keep the phone more than six (6) inches from their
pacemaker when the phone is turned ON;
O
Should not carry the phone in a breast pocket;
O
Should use the ear opposite the pacemaker to minimize the potential for
interference;
O
Should turn the phone OFF immediately if there is any reason to suspect
that interference is taking place.
Hearing Aids
Some digital wireless phones may interfere with some hearing aids. In the
event of such interference, you may want to consult your service provider (or
call the customer service line to discuss alternatives).
Other Medical Devices
If you use any other personal medical device, consult the manufacturer
of your device to determine if it is adequately shielded from external
RF energy. Your physician may be able to assist you in obtaining this
information.
Health Care Facilities
Turn your phone OFF in health care facilities when any regulations posted in
these areas instruct you to do so. Hospitals or health care facilities may use
equipment that could be sensitive to external RF energy.
Vehicles
RF signals may affect improperly installed or inadequately shielded
electronic systems in motor vehicles. Check with the manufacturer or
its representative regarding your vehicle. You should also consult the
manufacturer of any equipment that has been added to your vehicle.
Posted Facilities
Turn your phone OFF in any facility where posted notices so require.
Safety
Aircraft
FCC regulations prohibit using your phone while in the air. Switch OFF your
phone before boarding an aircraft.
Blasting Areas
To avoid interfering with blasting operations, turn your phone OFF when in a
“blasting area” or in areas posted: “Turn off two-way radio”. Obey all signs
and instructions.
Potentially Explosive Atmosphere
Turn your phone OFF when in any area with a potentially explosive
atmosphere and obey all signs and instructions. Sparks in such areas could
cause an explosion or fire resulting in bodily injury or even death.
Areas with a potentially explosive atmosphere are often, but not always
marked clearly. Potential areas may include: fueling areas (such as gasoline
stations); below deck on boats; fuel or chemical transfer or storage facilities;
vehicles using liquefied petroleum gas (such as propane or butane); areas
where the air contains chemicals or particles (such as grain, dust, or metal
powders); and any other area where you would normally be advised to turn
off your vehicle engine.
For Vehicles Equipped with an Air Bag
An air bag inflates with great force. DO NOT place objects, including either
installed or portable wireless equipment, in the area over the air bag or in
the air bag deployment area. If in-vehicle wireless equipment is improperly
installed and the air bag inflates, serious injury could result.

O
Do not use your device for long periods of time while a part of your
body is making direct contact with it. The temperature of the product
may increase during normal operation and this may result in harming or
burning your skin.
Caution:
Avoid potential hearing loss.
Prolonged exposure to loud sounds (including music) is the most common
cause of preventable hearing loss. Some scientific research suggests
that using portable audio devices, such as portable music players and
cellular telephones, at high volume settings for long durations may lead to
permanent noise induced hearing loss. This includes the use of headphones
(including headsets, earbuds and Bluetooth® or other wireless devices).
Exposure to very loud sound has also been associated in some studies
with tinnitus (a ringing in the ear), hypersensitivity to sound and distorted
hearing. Individual susceptibility to noise-induced hearing loss and other
potential hearing problems varies.
149
150
Safety
The amount of sound produced by a portable audio device varies depending
on the nature of the sound, the device, the device settings and the
headphones. You should follow some commonsense recommendations
when using any portable audio device:
O
Set the volume in a quiet environment and select the lowest volume at
which you can hear adequately.
O
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.
O
Do not turn the volume up to block out noisy surroundings. If you choose
to listen to your portable device in a noisy environment, use noisecancelling headphones to block out background environmental noise.
O
Limit the amount of time you listen. As the volume increases, less time
is required before your hearing could be affected.
O
Avoid using headphones after exposure to extremely loud noises, such
as rock concerts, that might cause temporary hearing loss. Temporary
hearing loss might cause unsafe volumes to sound normal.
O
Do not listen at any volume that causes you discomfort. If you
experience ringing in your ears, hear muffled speech or experience any
temporary hearing difficulty after listening to your portable audio device,
discontinue use and consult your doctor.

FDA Consumer Update
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Devices
and Radiological Health Consumer Update on Mobile Phones:
1. Do wireless phones pose a health hazard?
The available scientific evidence does not show that any health problems
are associated with using wireless phones. There is no proof, however, that
wireless phones are absolutely safe. Wireless phones emit low levels of Radio
Frequency (RF) energy in the microwave range while being used. They also
emit very low levels of RF when in standby mode. Whereas high levels of RF
can produce health effects (by heating tissue), exposure to low level RF that
does not produce heating effects causes no known adverse health effects.
Many studies of low level RF exposures have not found any biological effects.
Some studies have suggested that some biological effects may occur, but such
findings have not been confirmed by additional research. In some cases, other
researchers have had difficulty in reproducing those studies, or in determining
the reasons for inconsistent results.
2. What is the FDA’s role concerning the safety of wireless phones?
Under the law, the FDA does not review the safety of radiation-emitting
consumer products such as wireless phones before they can be sold,
as it does with new drugs or medical devices. However, the agency
has authority to take action if wireless phones are shown to emit Radio
Frequency (RF) energy at a level that is hazardous to the user. In such a
case, the FDA could require the manufacturers of wireless phones to notify
users of the health hazard and to repair, replace, or recall the phones so that
the hazard no longer exists.
Although the existing scientific data does not justify FDA regulatory actions,
the FDA has urged the wireless phone industry to take a number of steps,
including the following:
O
Support needed research into possible biological effects of RF of the
type emitted by wireless phones;
Safety
O
Design wireless phones in a way that minimizes any RF exposure to the
user that is not necessary for device function; and
O
Cooperate in providing users of wireless phones with the best possible
information on possible effects of wireless phone use on human health.
The FDA belongs to an interagency working group of the federal agencies
that have responsibility for different aspects of RF safety to ensure
coordinated efforts at the federal level. The following agencies belong to
this working group:
O
National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health
O
Environmental Protection Agency
O
Occupational Safety and Health Administration
O
National Telecommunications and Information Administration
The National Institutes of Health participates in some interagency working
group activities, as well.
The FDA shares regulatory responsibilities for wireless phones with the
Federal Communications Commission (FCC). All phones that are sold in
the United States must comply with FCC safety guidelines that limit RF
exposure. The FCC relies on the FDA and other health agencies for safety
questions about wireless phones.
The FCC also regulates the base stations that the wireless phone networks
rely upon. While these base stations operate at higher power than do the
wireless phones themselves, the RF exposures that people get from these
base stations are typically thousands of times lower than those they can
get from wireless phones. Base stations are thus not the subject of the
safety questions discussed in this document.
3. What kinds of phones are the subject of this update?
The term “wireless phone” refers here to handheld wireless phones
with built-in antennas, often called “cell”, “mobile”, or “PCS” phones.
These types of wireless phones can expose the user to measurable Radio
Frequency (RF) energy because of the short distance between the phone
and the user’s head.
153
154
Safety
These RF exposures are limited by FCC safety guidelines that were
developed with the advice of the FDA and other federal health and safety
agencies. When the phone is located at greater distances from the user,
the exposure to RF is drastically lower because a person’s RF exposure
decreases rapidly with increasing distance from the source. The so-called
“cordless phones,” which have a base unit connected to the telephone
wiring in a house, typically operate at far lower power levels, and thus
produce RF exposures far below the FCC safety limits.
4. What are the results of the research done already?
The research done thus far has produced conflicting results, and many
studies have suffered from flaws in their research methods. Animal
experiments investigating the effects of Radio Frequency (RF) energy
exposures characteristic of wireless phones have yielded conflicting
results that often cannot be repeated in other laboratories. A few animal
studies, however, have suggested that low levels of RF could accelerate
the development of cancer in laboratory animals. However, many of the
studies that showed increased tumor development used animals that had
been genetically engineered or treated with cancer-causing chemicals so
as to be pre-disposed to develop cancer in the absence of RF exposure.
Other studies exposed the animals to RF for up to 22 hours per day. These
conditions are not similar to the conditions under which people use wireless
phones, so we do not know with certainty what the results of such studies
mean for human health. Three large epidemiology studies have been
published since December 2000. Between them, the studies investigated
any possible association between the use of wireless phones and primary
brain cancer, glioma, meningioma, or acoustic neuroma, tumors of the
brain or salivary gland, leukemia, or other cancers. None of the studies
demonstrated the existence of any harmful health effects from wireless
phone RF exposures. However, none of the studies can answer questions
about long-term exposures, since the average period of phone use in these
studies was around three years.
5. What research is needed to decide whether RF exposure from
wireless phones poses a health risk?
Safety
A combination of laboratory studies and epidemiological studies of people
actually using wireless phones would provide some of the data that are
needed. Lifetime animal exposure studies could be completed in a few
years. However, very large numbers of animals would be needed to provide
reliable proof of a cancer promoting effect, if one exists. Epidemiological
studies can provide data that is directly applicable to human populations,
but ten or more years follow-up may be needed to provide answers about
some health effects, such as cancer. This is because the interval between
the time of exposure to a cancer-causing agent and the time tumors
develop - if they do - may be many, many years. The interpretation of
epidemiological studies is hampered by difficulties in measuring actual RF
exposure during day-to-day use of wireless phones. Many factors affect
this measurement, such as the angle at which the phone is held, or which
model of phone is used.
6. What is the FDA doing to find out more about the possible
health effects of wireless phone RF?
The FDA is working with the U.S. National Toxicology Program and with
groups of investigators around the world to ensure that high priority animal
studies are conducted to address important questions about the effects of
exposure to Radio Frequency (RF) energy.
The FDA has been a leading participant in the World Health Organization
International Electro Magnetic Fields (EMF) Project since its inception in
1996. An influential result of this work has been the development of a
detailed agenda of research needs that has driven the establishment of new
research programs around the world. The project has also helped develop a
series of public information documents on EMF issues.
The FDA and the Cellular Telecommunications & Internet Association
(CTIA) have a formal Cooperative Research And Development Agreement
(CRADA) to do research on wireless phone safety. The FDA provides the
scientific oversight, obtaining input from experts in government, industry,
and academic organizations. CTIA-funded research is conducted through
contracts with independent investigators. The initial research will include
both laboratory studies and studies of wireless phone users. The CRADA
155
156
Safety
will also include a broad assessment of additional research needs in the
context of the latest research developments around the world.
7. How can I find out how much Radio Frequency energy exposure
I can get by using my wireless phone?
All phones sold in the United States must comply with Federal
Communications Commission (FCC) guidelines that limit Radio Frequency
(RF) energy exposures. The FCC established these guidelines in
consultation with the FDA and the other federal health and safety agencies.
The FCC limit for RF exposure from wireless phones is set at a Specific
Absorption Rate (SAR) of 1.6 watts per kilogram (1.6 W/kg). The FCC limit is
consistent with the safety standards developed by the Institute of Electrical
and Electronic Engineering (IEEE) and the National Council on Radiation
Protection and Measurement. The exposure limit takes into consideration
the body’s ability to remove heat from the tissues that absorb energy from
the wireless phone and is set well below levels known to have effects.
Manufacturers of wireless phones must report the RF exposure level for
each model of phone to the FCC. The FCC website (http://www.fcc.gov/
cgb/cellular.html) gives directions for locating the FCC identification number
on your phone so you can find your phone’s RF exposure level in the online
listing.
8. What has the FDA done to measure the Radio Frequency energy
coming from wireless phones?
The Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) is developing a
technical standard for measuring the Radio Frequency (RF) energy exposure
from wireless phones and other wireless handsets with the participation and
leadership of FDA scientists and engineers. The standard, “Recommended
Practice for Determining the Spatial-Peak Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) in
the Human Body Due to Wireless Communications Devices: Experimental
Techniques”, sets forth the first consistent test methodology for measuring
the rate at which RF is deposited in the heads of wireless phone users.
The test method uses a tissue-simulating model of the human head.
Standardized SAR test methodology is expected to greatly improve the
consistency of measurements made at different laboratories on the same
Safety
phone. SAR is the measurement of the amount of energy absorbed in
tissue, either by the whole body or a small part of the body. It is measured
in watts/kg (or milliwatts/g) of matter. This measurement is used to
determine whether a wireless phone complies with safety guidelines.
9. What steps can I take to reduce my exposure to Radio Frequency
energy from my wireless phone?
If there is a risk from these products - and at this point we do not know that
there is - it is probably very small. But if you are concerned about avoiding even
potential risks, you can take a few simple steps to minimize your exposure to
Radio Frequency (RF) energy. Since time is a key factor in how much exposure a
person receives, reducing the amount of time spent using a wireless phone will
reduce RF exposure. If you must conduct extended conversations by wireless
phone every day, you could place more distance between your body and the
source of the RF, since the exposure level drops off dramatically with distance.
For example, you could use a headset and carry the wireless phone away from
your body or use a wireless phone connected to a remote antenna. Again, the
scientific data does not demonstrate that wireless phones are harmful. But if
you are concerned about the RF exposure from these products, you can use
measures like those described above to reduce your RF exposure from wireless
phone use.
10. What about children using wireless phones?
The scientific evidence does not show a danger to users of wireless
phones, including children and teenagers. If you want to take steps to lower
exposure to Radio Frequency (RF) energy, the measures described above
would apply to children and teenagers using wireless phones. Reducing the
time of wireless phone use and increasing the distance between the user
and the RF source will reduce RF exposure.
Some groups sponsored by other national governments have advised that
children be discouraged from using wireless phones at all. For example,
the government in the United Kingdom distributed leaflets containing
such a recommendation in December 2000. They noted that no evidence
exists that using a wireless phone causes brain tumors or other ill effects.
Their recommendation to limit wireless phone use by children was strictly
157
158
Safety
precautionary; it was not based on scientific evidence that any health hazard
exists.
11. What about wireless phone interference with medical
equipment?
Radio Frequency (RF) energy from wireless phones can interact with some
electronic devices. For this reason, the FDA helped develop a detailed
test method to measure Electro Magnetic Interference (EMI) of implanted
cardiac pacemakers and defibrillators from wireless telephones. This test
method is now part of a standard sponsored by the Association for the
Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI). The final draft, a joint
effort by the FDA, medical device manufacturers, and many other groups,
was completed in late 2000. This standard will allow manufacturers to
ensure that cardiac pacemakers and defibrillators are safe from wireless
phone EMI.
The FDA has tested hearing aids for interference from handheld wireless
phones and helped develop a voluntary standard sponsored by the Institute
of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE). This standard specifies test
methods and performance requirements for hearing aids and wireless
phones so that no interference occurs when a person uses a “compatible”
phone and a “compatible” hearing aid at the same time. This standard was
approved by the IEEE in 2000.
The FDA continues to monitor the use of wireless phones for possible
interactions with other medical devices. Should harmful interference be
found to occur, the FDA will conduct testing to assess the interference and
work to resolve the problem.

10 Driver Safety Tips
Your wireless phone gives you the powerful ability to communicate by voice
almost anywhere, anytime. An important responsibility accompanies the
benefits of wireless phones, one that every user must uphold.
When operating a car, driving is your first responsibility. When using your
wireless phone behind the wheel of a car, practice good common sense
and remember the following tips:
1. Get to know your wireless phone and its features such as speed dial and
redial. Carefully read your instruction manual and learn to take advantage
of valuable features most phones offer, including automatic redial and
memory. Also, work to memorize the phone keypad so you can use the
speed dial function without taking your attention off the road.
2. When available, use a hands-free device. A number of hands-free
wireless phone accessories are readily available today. Whether you
choose an installed mounted device for your wireless phone or a speaker
phone accessory, take advantage of these devices if available to you.
3. Make sure you place your wireless phone within easy reach and where
you can reach it without removing your eyes from the road. If you get
an incoming call at an inconvenient time, if possible, let your voicemail
answer it for you.
4. Suspend conversations during hazardous driving conditions or situations.
Let the person you are speaking with know you are driving; if necessary,
suspend the call in heavy traffic or hazardous weather conditions. Rain,
sleet, snow, and ice can be hazardous, but so is heavy traffic. As a driver,
your first responsibility is to pay attention to the road.
5. Don’t take notes or look up phone numbers while driving. If you are
159
160
Safety
reading an address book or business card, or writing a “to-do” list while
driving a car, you are not watching where you are going. It is common
sense. Do not get caught in a dangerous situation because you are
reading or writing and not paying attention to the road or nearby vehicles.
6. Dial sensibly and assess the traffic; if possible, place calls when you are
not moving or before pulling into traffic. Try to plan your calls before you
begin your trip or attempt to coincide your calls with times you may be
stopped at a stop sign, red light, or otherwise stationary. But if you need
to dial while driving, follow this simple tip - dial only a few numbers,
check the road and your mirrors, then continue.
7. Do not engage in stressful or emotional conversations that may be
distracting. Stressful or emotional conversations and driving do not mix;
they are distracting and even dangerous when you are behind the wheel
of a car. Make people you are talking with aware you are driving and if
necessary, suspend conversations which have the potential to divert
your attention from the road.
8. Use your wireless phone to call for help. Your wireless phone is one of
the greatest tools you can own to protect yourself and your family in
dangerous situations -- with your phone at your side, help is only three
numbers away. Dial 911 or other local emergency number in the case of
fire, traffic accident, road hazard, or medical emergency. Remember, it’s
a free call on your wireless phone!
9. Use your wireless phone to help others in emergencies. Your wireless
phone provides you a perfect opportunity to be a “Good Samaritan” in
your community. If you see an auto accident, crime in progress or other
serious emergency where lives are in danger, call 911 or other local
emergency number, as you would want others to do for you.
10. Call roadside assistance or a special wireless non-emergency assistance
number when necessary. Certain situations you encounter while driving
may require attention, but are not urgent enough to merit a call for
emergency services. But you can still use your wireless phone to lend
a hand. If you see a broken-down vehicle posing no serious hazard,
a broken traffic signal, a minor traffic accident where no one appears
injured or a vehicle you know to be stolen, call roadside assistance or
other special non-emergency wireless number.
Safety
The above tips are meant as general guidelines. Before deciding to use
your mobile device while operating a vehicle, it is recommended that
you consult your applicable jurisdiction’s local laws or other regulations
regarding such use. Such laws or other regulations may prohibit or
otherwise restrict the manner in which a driver may use his or her phone
while operating a vehicle.
Consumer Information on SAR
(Specific Absorption Rate)
This model phone meets the Government’s requirements for exposure
to radio waves. Your wireless phone is a radio transmitter and receiver.
It is designed and manufactured not to exceed the emission limits for
exposure to radiofrequency (RF) energy set by the Federal Communications
Commission (FCC) of the U.S. Government. These FCC exposure limits
are derived from the recommendations of two expert organizations, the
National Counsel on Radiation Protection and Measurement (NCRP) and the
Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). In both cases, the
recommendations were developed by scientific and engineering experts
drawn from industry, government, and academia after extensive reviews of
the scientific literature related to the biological effects of RF energy.
The exposure limit for wireless mobile phones employs a unit of measurement
known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR is a measure of the
rate of absorption of RF energy by the human body expressed in units of watts
per kilogram (W/kg). The FCC requires wireless phones to comply with a safety
limit of 1.6 watts per kilogram (1.6 W/kg). The FCC exposure limit incorporates
a substantial margin of safety to give additional protection to the public and to
account for any variations in measurements.
Tests for SAR are conducted using standard operating positions specified
by the FCC with the phone transmitting at its highest certified power level
in all tested frequency bands. Although SAR is determined at the highest
certified power level, the actual SAR level of the phone while operating
can be well below the maximum value. Because the phone is designed to
operate at multiple power levels to use only the power required to reach
the network, in general, the closer you are to a wireless base station
161
162
Safety
antenna, the lower the power output.
Before a phone model is available for sale to the public, it must be tested
and certified to the FCC that it does not exceed the limit established by
the government adopted requirement for safe exposure. The tests are
performed in positions and locations (e.g., at the ear and worn on the body)
as required by the FCC for each model.
This device was tested for typical body-worn operations with the back of
the phone kept 0.39 inches (1.0 cm) between the user’s body and the back
of the phone. To comply with FCC RF exposure requirements, a minimum
separation distance of 0.39 inches (1.0 cm) must be maintained between
the user’s body and the back of the phone. Third-party belt-clips, holsters,
and similar accessories containing metallic components may not be used.
Body-worn accessories that cannot maintain 0.39 inches (1.0 cm) separation
distance between the user’s body and the back of the phone, and have not
been tested for typical body-worn operations may not comply with FCC RF
exposure limits and should be avoided.
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this model phone
with all reported SAR levels evaluated as in compliance with the FCC RF
emission guidelines.
The highest SAR value for this model phone when tested for use at the
ear is 0.59 W/kg and when worn on the body, as described in this user’s
manual, is 1.12 W/kg. While there may be differences between SAR levels
of various phones and at various positions, they all meet the government
requirement for safe exposure.
SAR information on this model phone is on file with the FCC and can be
found under the Display Grant section of http://www.fcc.gov/oet/ea/fccid/
after searching on FCC ID ZNFVS870.
To find information that pertains to a particular model phone, this site uses
the phone FCC ID number which is usually printed somewhere on the
case of the phone. Sometimes it may be necessary to remove the battery
pack to find the number. Once you have the FCC ID number for a particular
phone, follow the instructions on the website and it should provide values
for typical or maximum SAR for a particular phone.
Safety
Additional information on Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) can be found
on the Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association (CTIA) website at
http://www.ctia.org/
*In the United States and Canada, the SAR limit for mobile phones used
by the public is 1.6 watts/kg (W/kg) averaged over one gram of tissue.
The standard incorporates a substantial margin of safety to give additional
protection for the public and to account for any variations in measurements.
FCC Hearing-Aid Compatibility (HAC) Regulations
for Wireless Devices
On July 10, 2003, the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC)
Report and Order in WT Docket 01-309 modified the exception of wireless
phones under the Hearing Aid Compatibility Act of 1988 (HAC Act) to
require digital wireless phones be compatible with hearing-aids. The intent
of the HAC Act is to ensure reasonable access to telecommunications
services for persons with hearing disabilities.
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 a rating system for
wireless phones, to assist hearing device users to find phones that may
be compatible with their hearing devices. Not all phones have been rated.
Phones that are rated have the rating on their box or a label located on the
box.
The ratings are not guarantees. Results will vary depending on the user’s
hearing device and 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.
M-Ratings: Phones rated M3 or M4 meet FCC requirements and are likely
163
164
Safety
to generate less interference to hearing devices than phones that are not
labeled. M4 is the better/higher of the two ratings.
T-Ratings: Phones rated T3 or T4 meet FCC requirements and are likely
to generate less interference to hearing devices than phones that are not
labeled. T4 is the better/ higher of the two ratings.
Hearing devices may also be rated. Your hearing device manufacturer or
hearing health professional may help you find this rating. Higher ratings
mean that the hearing device is relatively immune to interference noise.
The hearing aid and wireless phone rating values are then added together. A
sum of 5 is considered acceptable for normal use. A sum of 6 is considered
for best use.
In the example to the left, if a hearing aid meets the M2 level
rating and the wireless phone meets the M3 level rating, the
sum of the two values equal M5. This should provide the
hearing aid user with “normal usage” while using their
hearing aid with the particular wireless phone. “Normal usage” in this
context is defined as a signal quality that’s acceptable for normal operation.
The M mark is intended to be synonymous with the U mark. The T mark
is intended to be synonymous with the UT mark. The M and T marks are
recommended by the Alliance for Telecommunications Industries Solutions
(ATIS). The U and UT marks are referenced in Section 20.19 of the FCC
Rules. The HAC rating and measurement procedure are described in the
American National Standards Institute (ANSI) C63.19 standard.
When you’re talking on a cell phone, it’s recommended that you turn the BT
(Bluetooth) or WLAN mode off for HAC.
