Technical Details
The AS740 is an all digital phone that operates on both Code Division
Multiple Access (CDMA) frequencies: Cellular services at 800 MHz and
Personal Communication Services (PCS) at 1.9 GHz.
CDMA technology uses a feature called DSSS (Direct Sequence Spread
Spectrum) that enables the phone to keep communication from being
crossed and to use one frequency channel by multiple users in the same
specific area. This results in a 10-fold capacity increase when compared
with analog mode. In addition, features such as soft / softer handoff, hard
handoff, and dynamic RF power control technologies combine to reduce
call interruptions.
The Cellular and PCS CDMA networks consist of MSO (Mobile
Switching Office), BSC (Base Station Controller), BTS (Base Station
Transmission System), and MS (Mobile Station).
* TSB-74: Protocol between an IS- 95A system and ANSI J-STD- 008

Charging the Phone
Your LG AS740 device comes with a wall/USB adapter and a USB data
cable which connect together to charge your phone. To charge your
phone:
Notice Please use only an approved charging accessory to charge your LG
phone. Improper handling of the charging port, as well as the use of an
incompatible charger, may cause damage to your phone and void the
warranty.
1 Connect the wall/USB adapter and USB data cable. Connect as
shown; the LG logo on the USB cable should face toward you.
2 Gently uncover the Accessory/Charging port, then plug one end of
the USB data cable into the phone’s charger port and the other end
into an electrical outlet. The charge time varies depending upon the
battery level.
Battery temperature protection
Though extremely rare, if the battery becomes overheated, the phone
will automatically turn off.
Battery charge level
You can find the battery charge level at the top right of the screen. When
the battery level becomes low, the phone will notify you and the status
light will turn red. Once the battery level becomes exceedingly low, the
phone will shut off without notice. As a result, unsaved items may be
lost.
28 The Basics
Charging with USB
You can use your computer to charge your phone. To be able to charge
with the USB data cable, you need to have the necessary USB drivers
installed on your PC first. Connect one end of the USB cable to the
charging accessory port on your phone and connect the other end
to a USB port on your PC. It is best to use the rear USB port when
connecting to a desktop PC. The USB hub should be powered by an
external power source.
NOTES • Low-power USB ports are not supported, such as the USB port on your
keyboard or bus-powered USB hub.
• LG USB Driver is downloadable from the following site:
http://www.lgmobilephones.com > Click Mobile Support > Select the
Carrier(Others) > Select the Model (AS740) > Click USB Cable Driver to

Getting started with your AndroidTM phone
The first time you power on your phone, you’re
prompted to touch the Android logo to begin using your
phone.
You will be offered a chance to learn about your
phone, you will be prompted to create or to sign
into your Google Account, and you will be asked
to make some initial decisions about how you
want to use Android and Google features.
Touch to begin.
Your Google account
You must sign into a Google Account to use GmailTM, Google TalkTM,
Google CalendarTM, and other Google Apps; to download applications
from Android MarketTM; to back up your settings to Google servers; and
to take advantage of other Google services on your phone.
If you don’t have a Google Account, you will be prompted to create
one. If you have an enterprise account through your company or other
organization, your IT department may have special instructions on how
to sign into that account.
IMPORTANT
• Some applications, such as Calendar, work only with the first Google Account you
add. If you plan to use more than one Google Account with your phone, be sure to
sign into the one you want to use with such applications first.
When you sign in, your contacts, Gmail messages, Calendar events, and other
information from these applications and services on the web are synchronized with
your phone.
If you don’t sign into a Google Account during setup, you will be prompted to sign
in or to create a Google Account the first time you start an application that requires
one, such as Gmail or Android Market.
• If you want to use the backup feature to restore your settings to this phone from
another phone that was running Android release 2.0 or later, you must sign into
your Google Account now, during setup. If you wait until after setup is complete,
your settings will not be restored.

Editing Contact Details
You can change or add details saved in your contact entries. You can also
set specific ringtones to specific contacts or determine whether calls
from specific contacts are diverted to your voicemail.
Some contact entries contain information from multiple sources:
information that you added manually, information that Contacts joined
from multiple accounts to consolidate duplicates, and so on. If you find
duplicate entries in Contacts, you can join them into a single entry, as
described in “Joining Contacts” on page 96. If you that find information
from unrelated contacts was joined in error, you can separate them, as
described in “Separating Contact Information” on page 97.
Changes made to information from one source do not automatically
change the information on the other sources. For example, if you have
information about a contact from a Google Account and an Exchange
ActiveSync account and both are configured to sync contacts, changes
to the contact from the Google Account are synced to that account on
the web, but the information from the Exchange ActiveSync account will
remain unchanged. For more information about working with multiple

Configuring Account Sync and Display Options
You can configure background data and synchronization options for
the applications on your phone. You can also configure synchronization
options for each account. Some applications, such as GmailTM and
Calendar, have their own synchronization settings. Some applications,
such as Contacts and Gmail, can sync data for multiple accounts.
Others, such as Calendar, sync data only from the first Google Account
you set up with your phone, or from an account associated specifically
with that application.
For some accounts, syncing is two-directional; changes that you make
to the information on your phone are synchronized with the accounts on
the web or PC. Your Google Account synchronizes in a two-directional
manner. Other accounts support only one-way sync; the information
changed on your phone is only changed on your phone.

104 Gmail
Gmail is Different
Gmail is web-based Your messages are stored on-line, on GoogleTM
servers; but you read, write, and organize messages by using the Gmail
application on your phone, or by using a web browser on a computer.
Because your mail is stored on Google servers, you can search your
entire message history, backed by the speed and power of Google
search.
Actions that you take in one place are reflected everywhere. For
example, if you read a message in Gmail on your phone, it will be
marked as read in a web browser. And a message that you send using a
browser, or even a draft of a message, is visible in Gmail on the phone.
Gmail is conversation-based Each message and all replies to it
are grouped in your Inbox as a single conversation. In other email
applications, replies to messages are spread across your Inbox, typically
by date received, so a message and the replies to it are separated
by other messages. Gmail makes it easy to follow the thread of a
conversation.
Gmail is organized by labels, not by folders By tagging messages
with labels, you can organize your conversations in many different ways.
Whereas in other email applications, each message can live in only one
folder. For example, with Gmail you can label a conversation with your
mother about your brother’s birthday present with both “Mom” and
“Dave.” Later, you can look for the all messages containing either label.
Using folders, you’d have to store the message in the “Mom” folder or
the “Dave” folder, not both.
Gmail for the phone is optimized for mobile Some features are only
accessible on your computer browser The best place to organize and
learn about Gmail is the web. For example, you can’t use the Gmail
application on the phone to create the labels and filters that you use to
organize your messages, but you can label a message. Gmail on the
web offers complete information about the service, so it’s the best place
to learn about all of the features of Gmail.
GmailTM 105
Gmail is for Gmail Of course you can use Gmail to send email to any
email address, and anyone can send email to you at your Gmail address.
But if you want to read messages from another email service provider
(using your AOL, Yahoo!, or other email account), you must use the
Email application. See “Email” on page 145

Adding and Editing Email Accounts
The first time you open the Email application, you will be prompted to
set up an email account. After that, you can configure Email to send and
receive email from additional accounts. The accounts that you configure
will be displayed in the Accounts screen. See “Opening Email and the
Accounts Screen” on page 145.
The Email setup wizard helps you set up your account for many popular
email systems, including those based on POP3, IMAP, and SMTP, so you
can read and work with the same email as you would through on-line
email or an email application on your desktop. If your service provider
requires additional settings or if your service provider is unknown to
the Email application, you can enter the necessary details manually,
though you will typically need to contact your email service provider to
determine the correct settings for your account.
You can also set up a Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync account (Exchange
2003 and 2007), so you can read and work with the same email as you
would on a computer using Microsoft Outlook. Email supports username
and password authentication for Exchange ActiveSync accounts; it does
not support other Exchange ActiveSync security policies at this time.

settings the wizard can’t configure for you, touch the Manual setup
button.
If you touch the Next button, Email attempts to communicate with
154 Email
your email service provider to validate your account for sending and
receiving mail, using just your email address and password. This is
sufficient for most email services.
Depending on the service provider, you may be asked what kind of
email account you have. If you’re not sure, ask your email service
provider.
If the wizard determines that your service provider requires additional
information, or if you touched the Manual setup button, you’re
prompted to enter your email account details. Details are described
in “Changing Email Account Settings” on page 155. Contact your email
service provider for the values required for your account.
4 Enter a name for the account, confirm how you want your name to
appear in outgoing mail, then touch the Done button to complete
adding the account.
If you are adding an Exchange ActiveSync account, you can also
decide whether you want to synchronize your contacts from the
Exchange ActiveSync server to your phone. You can change this
setting later using the Contacts application.

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 internal antenna. Unauthorized antennas,
modifications, or attachments could damage the phone and may violate
FCC regulations.
260 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:
• Give full attention to driving -- driving safely is your first responsibility;
• Use hands-free operation, if available;
• 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.
Safety 261
Persons with pacemakers:
• Should ALWAYS keep the phone more than six (6) inches from their
pacemaker when the phone is turned ON;
• Should not carry the phone in a breast pocket;
• Should use the ear opposite the pacemaker to minimize the potential
for interference;
• 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.
262 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.

You can adapt over time to a higher volume of sound that may sound
normal but can be damaging to your hearing. If you experience ringing
266 Safety
in your ears or muffled speech, stop listening and have your hearing
checked. The louder the volume, the less time is required before your
hearing could be affected.
Hearing experts suggest that to protect your hearing:
• Limit the amount of time you use your phone and/or headset at high
volume.
• Avoid turning up the volume to block out noisy surroundings.
• Turn the volume down if you can’t hear people speaking near you.
For information about how to set a maximum volume limit on your
phone, see the features guide for your phone.

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
Safety 267
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 radiationemitting
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 do not justify FDA regulatory
actions, the FDA has urged the wireless phone industry to take a
number of steps, including the following:
• Support needed research into possible biological effects of RF of the
type emitted by wireless phones;
• Design wireless phones in a way that minimizes any RF exposure to
the user that is not necessary for device function; and
• 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
268 Safety
belong to this working group:
• National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health Environmental
Protection Agency
• Occupational Safety and Health Administration
• 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.
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
Safety 269
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 cancercausing chemicals so as to be predisposed 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
longterm 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?
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
270 Safety
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 cancercausing 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 dayto-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. CTIAfunded research is conducted
through contracts with independent investigators. The initial research
will include both laboratory studies and studies of wireless phone users.
The CRADA will also include a broad assessment of additional research
needs in the context of the latest research developments around the
world.
Safety 271
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/oet/rfsafety) 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 phone. SAR
is the measurement of the amount of energy absorbed in tissue, either
272 Safety
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 do 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
Safety 273
effects. Their recommendation to limit wireless phone use by children
was strictly 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 handsfree 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.
Safety 275
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
reading an address book or business card, or writing a “todo” 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
276 Safety
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 nonemergency
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 brokendown 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.
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
Safety 277
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 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 governmentadopted 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 0.79 inches (2.0 cm) between the user’s body and
the back of the phone. To comply with FCC RF exposure requirements,
a minimum separation distance of 0.79 inches (2.0 cm) must be
maintained between the user s body and the back of the phone. Thirdparty belt-clips, holsters, and similar accessories containing metallic
278 Safety
components should not be used. Body-worn accessories that cannot
maintain 0.79 inches (2.0 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 1.36 W/kg and when worn on the body, is 0.74 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/fccid
after searching on FCC ID BEJVS740.
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.
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.
Safety 279
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 to generate less interference to hearing devices than phones that
are not labeled. M4 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
280 Safety
6 is considered for best use.
In the above example, 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 over the cell phone, it’s recommended you’d turn
the BT (Bluetooth®) mode off for HAC.
According to HAC policy (KDB 285076), we state this handset has
not been rated for hearing aid compatibility with respect to the Wi-Fi
capability.
