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 Non-Ionizing
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.
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;
97
98
Safety
●
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.
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.
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.

Safety
●
Use accessories, such as
earphones and headsets, with
caution. Ensure that cables are
tucked away safely and do not
touch the antenna unnecessarily.
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 noiseinduced hearing loss and other
potential hearing problems varies.
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:
●
Set the volume in a quiet
environment and select the
lowest volume at which you can
hear adequately.
●
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.
●
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 noise-cancelling
headphones to block out
background environmental noise.
●
Limit the amount of time you
listen. As the volume increases,
less time is required before your
hearing could be affected.
●
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.
●
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 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.
103
104
Safety
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:
●
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
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
Safety
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?
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 cancercausing agent and the time tumors
105
106
Safety
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 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
Safety
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 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
107
108
Safety
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
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
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
109
110
Safety
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.
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
Safety
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 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 0.79 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. Third-party beltclips, holsters, and similar
accessories containing metallic
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.
111
112
Safety
The highest SAR value for this model
phone when tested for use at the ear
is 0.95 W/kg and when worn on the
body, as described in this user’s
manual, is 0.51 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.
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.
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 01309 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
Safety
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.
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) mode off for HAC.

product during the warranty period as long as it is in the U.S.,
including Alaska, Hawaii, U.S. Territories and Canada.
(4) The external housing and cosmetic parts shall be free of defects

under these limited warranty terms.
(5) Upon request from LG, the consumer must provide information
to reasonably prove the date of purchase.
(6) The customer shall bear the cost of shipping the product to the
Customer Service Department of LG. LG shall bear the cost of

(4) That the Customer Service Department at LG was not notified
by consumer of the alleged defect or malfunction of the product
during the applicable limited warranty period.
(5) Products which have had the serial number removed or made

(6) This limited warranty is in lieu of all other warranties, express or

3. WHAT LG WILL DO:
LG will, at its sole option, either repair, replace or refund the

warranty. LG may choose at its option to use functionally equivalent
re-conditioned, refurbished or new units or parts or any units. In
addition, LG will not re-install or back-up any data, applications or
software that you have added to your phone. It is therefore
recommended that you back-up any such data or information prior

LIMITED WARRANTY STATEMENT
4. STATE LAW RIGHTS:
No other express warranty is applicable to this product. THE
DURATION OF ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING THE
IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MARKETABILITY, IS LIMITED TO THE
DURATION OF THE EXPRESS WARRANTY HEREIN. LG SHALL
NOT BE LIABLE FOR THE LOSS OF THE USE OF THE PRODUCT,
INCONVENIENCE, LOSS OR ANY OTHER DAMAGES, DIRECT OR
CONSEQUENTIAL, ARISING OUT OF THE USE OF, OR INABILITY
TO USE, THIS PRODUCT OR FOR ANY BREACH OF ANY EXPRESS
OR IMPLIED WARRANTY, INCLUDING THE IMPLIED WARRANTY
OF MARKETABILITY APPLICABLE TO THIS PRODUCT.
Some states do not allow the exclusive limitation of incidental or
consequential damages or limitations on how long an implied
warranty lasts; so these limitations or exclusions may not apply to
you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights and you may also
have other rights which vary from state to state.
5. HOW TO GET WARRANTY SERVICE:

or the mobile handset, in each case as may be covered by this
