In August 1996, the Federal Communications
Commission (FCC) of the United States, with its
action in Report and Order FCC 96-326, adopted
an updated safety standard for human exposure
to Radio Frequency (RF) electromagnetic energy
emitted by FCC regulated transmitters. Those
guidelines are consistent with the safety standard
previously set by both U.S. and international
standards bodies. The design of this phone
complies with the FCC guidelines and these
international standards.
Bodily Contact During Operation
This device was tested for typical use with the
back of the phone kept 0.79 inches (2 cm)
from the body. To comply with FCC RF exposure
requirements, a minimum separation distance
of 0.79 inches (2 cm) must be maintained
between the user’s body and the back of the
13
For Your Safety
phone, including the antenna, whether extended
or retracted. Third-party belt-clips, holsters, and
similar accessories containing metallic components
should not be used. Avoid the use of accessories
that cannot maintain 0.79 inches (2 cm) distance

Consumer Information About Radio
Frequency Emissions
Your wireless phone, which contains a radio
transmitter and receiver, emits radio frequency
energy during use. The following consumer
information addresses commonly asked questions
about the health effects of wireless phones.
Are wireless phones safe?
Scientific research on the subject of wireless
phones and radio frequency (“RF”) energy has
been conducted worldwide for many years, and
continues. In the United States, the Food and
Drug Administration (“FDA”) and the Federal
Communications Commission (“FCC”) set policies
and procedures for wireless phones. The FDA
issued a website publication on health issues
related to cell phone usage where it states, “The
scientific community at large … believes that the
weight of scientific evidence does not show an
association between exposure to radiofrequency
(RF) from cell phones and adverse health
outcomes. Still the scientific community does
recommend conducting additional research to
address gaps in knowledge. That research is being
conducted around the world and FDA continues to
15
For Your Safety
monitor developments in this field. You can access
the joint FDA/FCC website at http://www.fda.gov
(under “c”
in the subject index, select Cell Phones >
Research). You can also contact the FDA toll-free
at (888) 463-6332 or (888) INFO-FDA. In June
2000, the FDA entered into a cooperative research
and development agreement through which
additional scientific research is being conducted.
The FCC issued its own website publication stating
that “there is no scientific evidence that proves
that wireless phone usage can lead to cancer or
a variety of other problems, including headaches,
dizziness or memory loss.” This publication is
available at http://www.fcc.gov/oet/rfsafety or
through the FCC at (888) 225-5322 or (888)
CALL-FCC.
What does “SAR” mean?
In 1996, the FCC, working with the FDA, the
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and
other agencies, established RF exposure safety
guidelines for wireless phones in the United States.
Before a wireless phone model is available for sale
to the public, it must be tested by the manufacturer
and certified to the FCC that it does not exceed
limits established by the FCC. One of these limits is
expressed as a Specific Absorption Rate, or “SAR.”
16 LG GD570 | User Guide
SAR is a measure of the rate of absorption of RF
energy in the body. Tests for SAR are conducted
with the phone transmitting at its highest power
level in all tested frequency bands. Since 1996,
the FCC has required that the SAR of handheld
wireless phones not exceed 1.6 watts per kilogram,
averaged over one gram of tissue.
Although the SAR is determined at the highest
power level, the actual SAR value of a wireless
phone while operating can be less than the
reported SAR value. This is because the SAR value
may vary from call to call, depending on factors
such as proximity to a cell site, the proximity of
the phone to the body while in use, and the use
of hands-free devices. 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.
The highest SAR value for this model phone when
tested for use at the ear is 0.67 W/kg and when
worn on the body, as described in this user guide,
is 0.52 W/kg (body-worn measurements differ
among phone models, depending upon available
accessories and FCC requirements).
17
For Your Safety
While there may be differences between SAR
levels of various phones and at various positions,
they all meet the government requirement for safe
exposure.
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. 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 BEJGD570.
For more information about SARs, see the FCC’s
OET Bulletins 56 and 65 at http://www.fcc.gov/
Bureaus/Engineering_Technology/Documents/
bulletins or visit the Cellular Telecommunications
Industry Association website at http://www.ctia.org/
consumer_info/index.cfm/AID/10371. You may also
wish to contact the manufacturer of your phone.
Can I minimize my RF exposure?
If you are concerned about RF, there are several
simple steps you can take to minimize your RF
exposure. You can, of course, reduce your talk time.
You can place more distance between your body
and the source of the RF, as the exposure level
drops off dramatically with distance. The FDA/FCC
website states that “hands-free kits can be used
18 LG GD570 | User Guide
with wireless phones for convenience and comfort.
These systems reduce the absorption of RF energy
in the head because the phone, which is the source
of the RF emissions, will not be placed against the
head. On the other hand, if the phone is mounted
against the waist or other part of the body during
use, then that part of the body will absorb more RF
energy. Wireless phones marketed in the U.S. are
required to meet safety requirements regardless
of whether they are used against the head or
against the body. Either configuration should result
in compliance with the safety limit.” Also, if you
use your wireless phone while in a car, you can
use a phone with an antenna on the outside of
the vehicle. You should also read and follow your
wireless phone manufacturer’s instructions for the
safe operation of your phone.
Do wireless phones pose any special risks to
children?
The FDA/FCC website states that “the scientific
evidence does not show a danger to users of
wireless communication devices, including children.”
The FDA/FCC website further states that “some
groups sponsored by other national governments
have advised that children be discouraged from
using wireless phones at all”. For example, the
Stewart Report from the United Kingdom [“UK”]
19
For Your Safety
made such a recommendation in December 2000.
In this report a group of independent experts noted
that no evidence exists that using a cell phone
causes brain tumors or other ill effects. [The UK’s]
recommendation to limit cell phone use by children
was strictly precautionary; it was not based on
scientific evidence that any health hazard exists.
A copy of the UK’s leaflet is available at http://
www.dh.gov.uk (search “mobile”), or you can write
to: NRPB, Chilton, Didcot, Oxon OX11 ORQ, United
Kingdom. Copies of the UK’s annual reports on
mobile phones and RF are available online at www.
iegmp.org.uk and http://www.hpa.org.uk/radiation/
(search “mobile”). Parents who wish to reduce their
children’s RF exposure may choose to restrict their
children’s wireless phone use.
Where can I get further information about RF
emissions?

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
23
For Your Safety
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.
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.
24 LG GD570 | User Guide
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).
25
For Your Safety
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.
Aircraft
FCC regulations prohibit using your phone while in
the air. Switch OFF your phone before boarding an
aircraft.
26 LG GD570 | User Guide
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.

have suggested that some biological effects may
occur, but such findings have not been confirmed
by additional research. In some cases, other
researchers have had difficulty in reproducing
those studies, or in determining the reasons for
inconsistent results.

2.What is the FDA’s role concerning the safety
of wireless phones?
Under the law, the FDA does not review the safety
of radiation-emitting consumer products such
as wireless phones before they can be sold, as it
does with new drugs or medical devices. However,
the agency has authority to take action if wireless
phones are shown to emit Radio Frequency
(RF) energy at a level that is hazardous to the
user. In such a case, the FDA could require the
manufacturers of wireless phones to notify users
of the health hazard and to repair, replace, or recall
the phones so that the hazard no longer exists.
Although the existing scientific data does not justify
FDA regulatory actions, the FDA has urged the
wireless phone industry to take a number of steps,
including the following:
• 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
29
For Your Safety
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
30 LG GD570 | User Guide
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 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
31
For Your Safety
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
32 LG GD570 | User Guide
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 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.
33
For Your Safety
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
34 LG GD570 | User Guide
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
must report the RF exposure level for each model
of phone to the FCC. The FCC website (http://www.
35
For Your Safety
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 by the whole body or
a small part of the body. It is measured in watts/
36 LG GD570 | User Guide
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.
37
For Your Safety
10. What about children using wireless phones?
The scientific evidence does not show a danger
to users of wireless phones, including children
and teenagers. If you want to take steps to lower
exposure to Radio Frequency (RF) energy, the
measures described above would apply to children
and teenagers using wireless phones. Reducing
the time of wireless phone use and increasing the
distance between the user and the RF source will
reduce RF exposure.
Some groups sponsored by other national
governments have advised that children be
discouraged from using wireless phones at all.
For example, the government in the United
Kingdom distributed leaflets containing such a
recommendation in December 2000. They noted
that no evidence exists that using a wireless phone
causes brain tumors or other ill effects. Their
recommendation to limit wireless phone use by
children was strictly 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
38 LG GD570 | User Guide
(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.

FCC Hearing-Aid Compatibility (HAC)
Regulations for Wireless Devices
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.

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.

Limited Warranty Statement
1. WHAT THIS WARRANTY COVERS :
LG offers you a limited warranty that the enclosed subscriber unit and its
enclosed accessories will be free from defects in material and workmanship, according to the following terms and conditions:
(1) The limited warranty for the product extends for TWELVE (12) MONTHS beginning on the date of purchase of the product with valid proof of purchase,
or absent valid proof of purchase, FIFTEEN (15) MONTHS from date of
manufacture as determined by the unit’s manufacture date code.
(2) The limited warranty extends only to the original purchaser of the product
and is not assignable or transferable to any subsequent purchaser/end user.
(3) This warranty is good only to the original purchaser of the 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 at the time
of shipment and, therefore, shall not be covered 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 shipping the product
back to the consumer after the completion of service under this limited warranty.
2. WHAT THIS WARRANTY DOES NOT COVER:
(1) Defects or damages resulting from use of the product in other than its
normal and customary manner.
(2) Defects or damages from abnormal use, abnormal conditions, improper
storage, exposure to moisture or dampness, unauthorized modifications, unauthorized connections, unauthorized repair, misuse, neglect, abuse, accident,
alteration, improper installation, or other acts which are not the fault of LG,
including damage caused by shipping, blown fuses, spills of food or liquid.
(3) Breakage or damage to antennas unless caused directly by defects in material or workmanship.
(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 illegible.
(6) This limited warranty is in lieu of all other warranties, express or implied
either in fact or by operations of law, statutory or otherwise, including, but not

3. WHAT LG WILL DO:
LG will, at its sole option, either repair, replace or refund the purchase
price of any unit that does not conform to this limited warranty. LG may
choose at its option to use functionally equivalent reconditioned, 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 to sending the unit to LG to avoid the permanent loss of
such information.
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.
