important information on the use
and operation of your phone.
Please read all the information
carefully prior to using the phone
for the best performance and to
prevent any damage to or misuse
of the phone. Any unapproved
changes or modifications will void
your warranty.
This phone complies with
Industry Canada RSS 133. This
phone complies with the Class B
limits for radio noise emissions as
set out in the interference
causing standard entitled "Digital
Apparatus"
(ICES-003) of Industry Canada.
FCC Part 15 Class B
Compliance
This device and its accessories
comply with part 15 of FCC
rules. Operation is subject to the
following two conditions: (1)
This device and its accessories
may not cause harmful
interference, and (2) this device

Technical Details
The LG 8550 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,

TIA (Telecommunications
Industry Association)
Safety Information
The following is the complete
TIA Safety Information for
wireless handheld phones.
Exposure to Radio Frequency
Signal
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)
Health Canada, Safety Code
6, 1999.
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, IC Regulations (and
those standards).
S a f ety
Your wireless handheld portable
phone is a low power radio
transmitter and receiver. When it is
ON, it receives and also sends out
Radio Frequency (RF) signals.
Safety
Antenna Care
Use only the supplied or an
approved replacement antenna.
Unauthorized antennas,
89
Safety
modifications, or attachments
could damage the phone and
may violate FCC regulations.
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:
S a f ety
Do not press 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
90
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 so require.
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 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.
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.) Optional for each
phone manufacturer.
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.
S a f ety
Persons with Pacemakers:
● Should ALWAYS keep the
phone more than six 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;
●
91
Safety
Health Care Facilities
Aircraft
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.
FCC and Transport Canada
regulations prohibit using your
phone while in the air. Switch
OFF your phone before boarding
an aircraft.
Vehicles
S a f ety
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
92
Turn your phone OFF in any
facility where posted notices so
require.
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.
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

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?
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
S a f ety
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 radiofrequency energy (RF) in
the microwave range while being
used. They also emit very low
levels of RF when in the Main
Menu Screen. 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.
99
Safety
wireless phones are shown to
emit radiofrequency energy (RF)
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.
S a f ety
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.
●
100
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
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.
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 radiofrequency
energy (RF) 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
S a f ety
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.
101
Safety
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?
S a f ety
102
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 radiofrequency
energy (RF) 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 don’t
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.
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

5. What research is needed to
decide whether RF exposure
from wireless phones poses
a health risk?
provide reliable proof of a cancer
promoting effect if one exists.
Epidemiological studies can
provide data that is directly
applicable to human populations,
but 10 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.
103
Safety
6. What is the FDA doing to
find out more about the
possible health effects of
wireless phone RF?
S a f ety
104
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
energy (RF). The FDA has been a
leading participant in the World
Health Organization International
Electromagnetic 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.
7. How can I find out how
much radio frequency
energy exposure I can get by
using my wireless phone?
8. What has the FDA done to
measure the radio
frequency energy coming
from wireless phones?
S a f ety
All phones sold in the United
States must comply with Federal
Communications Commission
(FCC) guidelines that limit radio
frequency energy (RF) 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 telephones 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.
The Institute of Electrical and
Electronic Engineers (IEEE) is
105
Safety
S a f ety
106
developing a technical standard
for measuring the radio
frequency energy (RF) 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
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
energy (RF). Since time is a key
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 energy (RF), 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
S a f ety
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.
107
Safety
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
precautionary; it was not based on
scientific evidence that any health
hazard exists.
11. What about wireless phone
interference with medical
equipment?
S a f ety
108
Radio frequency energy (RF)
from wireless phones can interact
with some electronic devices. For
this reason, the FDA helped
develop a detailed test method
to measure electromagnetic
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.

S a f ety
110
The exposure standard for
wireless mobile phones 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*. 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.
The highest SAR value for this
model phone when tested for
use at the ear is 1.13 W/kg and
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.
S a f ety
when worn on the body, as
described in this user guide, is
