Do not expose the battery charger or adapter to direct sunlight or use it in places with
high humidity, such as a bathroom.
Do not use harsh chemicals (such as alcohol, benzene, thinners, etc.) or detergents to
clean your phone. This could cause a fire.
Do not drop, strike, or shake your phone severely. It may harm the internal circuit boards
of the phone.
Do not use your phone in high explosive areas as the phone may generate sparks.
Do not damage the power cord by bending, twisting, pulling, or heating. Do not use the
plug if it is loose as it may cause electric shock or fire.
Do not place any heavy items on the power cord. Do not allow the power cord to be
crimped as it may cause electric shock or fire.
Do not handle the phone with wet hands while it is being charged. It may cause an
electric shock or seriously damage your phone.
Do not disassemble the phone.
Do not place or answer calls while charging the phone as it may short-circuit the phone
and/or cause electric shock or fire.
Do not hold or let the antenna come in contact with your body during a call.
Make sure that no sharp-edged items such as animal’s teeth or nails, come into contact
with the battery. This could cause a fire.
Store the battery out of reach of children.
Be careful that children do not swallow any parts such as rubber plugs, earphone,
connection parts of the phone, etc. This could cause asphyxiation or suffocation resulting
in serious injury or death.
Unplug the power cord and charger during lightning storms to avoid electric shock or fire.
Only use the batteries and chargers provided by LG. The warranty will not be applied to
products provided by other suppliers.
Only authorized personnel should service the phone and its accessories. Faulty installation
or service may result in accidents and consequently invalidate the warranty.
An emergency call can be made only within a service area. For an emergency call, make
sure that you are within a service area and that the phone is turned on.

Important Information
This user’s guide provides 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
accidental damage or misuse. Any unapproved
changes or modifications will void your warranty.
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 and its accessories must accept any
interference received, including interference that
causes undesired operation.
Technical Details
The VX5300 is a tri-mode phone that operates on
Cellular, PCS, and AMPS services. It operates on
both Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA)
frequencies: cellular services at 800 Mhz and
Personal Communication Services (PCS) at 1.9 Ghz,
as well as on Advanced Mobile Phone Service
(AMPS). As a result, the call fail rate is less than on
a conventional dual-mode or single-mode phone.

Welcome
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).

FCC RF Exposure Information
WARNING! Read this information before operating
the phone.
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 0.6 inches (1.5 cm) from the
body. To comply with FCC RF exposure
requirements, a minimum separation distance of
0.6 inches (1.5 cm) must be maintained between
the user’s body and the back of the phone,
including the antenna, whether extended or
retracted. Third-party belt-clips, holsters, and

Getting Started with Your Phone
The Battery
Charging the Battery
The phone comes with a rechargeable battery.
Keep it charged even while you’re not using it so
that it’s ready when you need it.
To use the charger provided with your phone:
NOTE
It’s important to fully charge the battery before
using the phone for the first time.
NOTE
Battery life and signal strength are significant
factors (among others) that affect your phone’s
ability to send/receive calls.
Installing the Battery
Insert the bottom of the battery into the opening on
the back of the phone, then push the battery down
until the latch clicks. Align the battery cover over
the battery then slide it slightly upward until it
clicks into place.
1. Plug one end of the AC adapter into the phone’s
charger port and the other into an electrical
outlet.
2. Charge time varies depending upon the battery
level.
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.
NOTICE
Triangle symbol
should face up.
Removing the Battery
Turn the phone off. Slide the battery cover
downward and remove it. Use the opening near the
top of the battery to lift the battery out.

Getting Started with Your Phone
Chargers which have two grooves on the
bottom are NOT compatible with this
phone model. Inserting this type of charger
into the phone may damage the charging
port. This charger is compatible with the

VX4700, VX5200, VX6100, VX7000,

the bottom. This charger will work with all of
the above listed phones, as well as the
VX3400, VX3450, VX5300 and VX8300.
Signal Strength
Call quality depends on the signal strength in your
area. You can tell how much signal strength you
have by the number of bars next to the signal
strength icon: the more bars, the stronger the
signal. If you’re having problems with signal quality,
move to an open area or, when inside a building,
try moving near a window.

automatically switches off and anything you’re
doing is not saved.

Safety
TIA Safety Information
The following is the complete TIA Safety
Information for wireless handheld phones.
Exposure to Radio Frequency Signal
Your wireless handheld portable phone is a low
power radio transmitter and receiver. When ON, it
receives and sends out Radio Frequency (RF)
signals.
In August, 1996, the Federal Communications
Commissions (FCC) adopted RF exposure
guidelines with safety levels for handheld wireless
phones. Those guidelines are consistent with the
safety standards previously set by both U.S. and
international standards bodies:
ANSI C95.1 (1992) *
NCRP Report 86 (1986)
ICNIRP (1996)
American National Standards Institute; National
Council on Radiation Protection and
Measurements; International Commission on NonIonizing Radiation Protection
Those standards were based on comprehensive
and periodic evaluations of the relevant scientific
literature. For example, over 120 scientists,
engineers, and physicians from universities,
government health agencies, and industry
reviewed the available body of research to develop
the ANSI Standard (C95.1). The design of your
phone complies with the FCC guidelines (and those
standards).
Antenna Care
Use only the supplied or an approved replacement
antenna. Unauthorized antennas, modifications, or
attachments could damage the phone and may
violate FCC regulations.

Tips on Efficient Operation
Pacemakers
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.
The Health Industry Manufacturers Association
recommends that a minimum separation of fifteen
(15) centimeters or 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.
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.
78
VX5300
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
Safety
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.
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
VX5300
79
Safety
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.
Safety Information
Please read and observe the following information
for safe and proper use of your phone and to
prevent damage. Also, keep the user guide in an
accessible place at all the times after reading it.
Violation of the instructions may cause
minor or serious damage to the product.
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.

acceptable performance. The battery can be
recharged several hundred times before
replacement.
Recharge the battery after long periods of nonuse to maximize battery life.
Battery life will vary due to usage patterns and
environmental conditions.
Use of extended backlighting, and data
connectivity kits affect battery life and
talk/standby times.
The self-protection function of the battery cuts
the power of the phone when its operation is in
Explosion, Shock, and Fire Hazards
Do not put your phone in a place subject to
excessive dust and keep the minimum required
distance between the power cord and heat
sources.
Unplug the power cord prior to cleaning your
phone, and clean the power plug pin when it's
dirty.
When using the power plug, ensure that it's
firmly connected. If not, it may cause excessive
heat or fire.
If you put your phone in a pocket or bag without
covering the receptacle of the phone (power
plug pin), metallic articles (such as a coin,
paperclip or pen) may short-circuit the phone.
Always cover the receptacle when not in use.
Don't short-circuit circuit the + and – terminals
of the battery (metal strips on the battery). Shortcircuit of the terminal may damage the battery
and cause an explosion.

Safety
General Notice
Using a damaged battery or placing a battery in
your mouth may cause serious injury.
Do not place items containing magnetic
components such as a credit card, phone card,
bank book or subway ticket near your phone.
The magnetism of the phone may damage the
data stored in the magnetic strip.
Talking on your phone for a long period of time
may reduce call quality due to heat generated
during use.
When the phone is not used for a long period
time, store it in a safe place with the power cord
unplugged.
Using the phone in proximity to receiving
equipment (i.e., TV or radio) may cause
interference to the phone.
Do not use the phone if the antenna is damaged.
If a damaged antenna contacts skin, it may
cause a slight burn. Please contact an LG
Authorized Service Center to replace the
damaged antenna.
Do not immerse your phone in water. If this
82
VX5300
happens, turn it off immediately and remove the
battery. If the phone does not work, take it to an
LG Authorized Service Center.
Do not paint your phone.
The data saved in your phone might be deleted
due to careless use, repair of the phone, or
upgrade of the software. Please backup your
important phone numbers.
The manufacturer is not liable for damage due to
the loss of data.
When you use the phone in public places, set the
ringtone to vibration so you don't disturb others.
Do not turn your phone on or off when putting it
to your ear.
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.
VX5300
83
Safety
• 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 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.
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 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.
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
VX5300
85
Safety
wireless phones.
Design wireless phones in a way that minimizes
any RF exposure to the user that is not
necessary for device function.
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
86
VX5300
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 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 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 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 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 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.
VX5300
87
Safety
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 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 cancercausing agent and the time tumors develop — if
they do — may be many, many years. The
88
VX5300
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 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. 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 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.
VX5300
89
Safety
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 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
90
VX5300
(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 factor in
how much exposure a person receives, reducing
the amount of time spent using a wireless phone
will reduce RF exposure. If you must conduct
extended conversations by wireless phone every
day, you could place more distance between your
body and the source of the RF, since the exposure
level drops off dramatically with distance. For
example, you could use a headset and carry the
wireless phone away from your body or use a
wireless phone connected to a remote antenna.
Again, the scientific data does not demonstrate
that wireless phones are harmful. But if you are
concerned about the RF exposure from these
products, you can use measures like those
described above to reduce your RF exposure from
wireless phone use.
10. What about children using wireless phones?
The scientific evidence does not show a danger to
users of wireless phones, including children and
teenagers. If you want to take steps to lower
exposure to Radio Frequency 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 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 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
VX5300
91
Safety
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:
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.
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.
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.
2. When available, use a hands-free device.
A number of hands-free wireless phone
5. Don't take notes or look up phone numbers
while driving. If you are reading an address
VX5300
93
Safety
book or business card, or writing a “to-do” list
while driving a car, you are not watching
where you are going. It's common sense. Don’t
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,
94
VX5300
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 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.

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 Radio Frequency
(RF) energy set by the Federal Communications
Commission of the U.S. Government. These limits
are part of comprehensive guidelines and establish
permitted levels of RF energy for the general
population. The guidelines are based on standards
that were developed by independent scientific
organizations through periodic and thorough
evaluation of scientific studies. The standards
include a substantial safety margin designed to
assure the safety of all persons, regardless of age
and health.
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
VX5300
95
Safety
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 by 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 1.27 W/kg and when
worn on the body, as described in this user guide,
is 0.731 W/kg (body-worn measurements differ
among phone models, depending upon available
accessories and FCC requirements). 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
96
VX5300
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 BEJVX5300. Additional information on
Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) can be found on
the Cellular Telecommunications Industry
Association (CTIA) website at http://www.wowcom.com.
* In the United States and Canada, the SAR limit
for mobile phones used by the public is 1.6
watts/kg (W/kg) averaged over one gram of
tissue. The standard incorporates a substantial
margin of safety to give additional protection for
the public and to account for any variations in
measurements.
FCC Hearing-Aid Compatibility
(HAC) Regulations for Wireless
Devices
On July 10, 2003, the U.S. Federal Communications
Commission (FCC) Report and Order in WT Docket
01-309 modified the exception of wireless phones
under the Hearing Aid Compatibility Act of 1988
(HAC Act) to require digital wireless phones be
compatible with hearing-aids. The intent of the
HAC Act is to ensure reasonable access to
telecommunications services for persons with
hearing disabilities.
While some wireless phones are used near some
hearing devices (hearing aids and cochlear
implants), users may detect a buzzing, humming, or
whining noise. Some hearing devices are more
immune than others to this interference noise, and
phones also vary in the amount of interference
they generate.
The wireless telephone industry has developed a
rating system for wireless phones, to assist hearing
device users to find phones that may be
compatible with their hearing devices. Not all
phones have been rated. Phones that are rated
have the rating on their box or a label located on
the box.
The ratings are not guarantees. Results will vary
depending on the user's hearing device and
hearing loss. If your hearing device happens to be
vulnerable to interference, you may not be able to
use a rated phone successfully. Trying out the
phone with your hearing device is the best way to
evaluate it for your personal needs.
M-Ratings: Phones rated M3 or M4 meet FCC
requirements and are likely 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 6 is considered for best use.
(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 Bluetooth mode off for
HAC.
For information about hearing aids and digital wireless
phones
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

Dual-Tone Multi Frequency (or “touchtone”) is a method used to communicate
keys pressed on the phone. Pressing a
key generates two simultaneous tones,
one for the row and one for the column
to determine which key was pressed.
Enhanced Messaging Service is an
extension to SMS for cellular phones
available on specific networks. An EMS
enabled phone can send and receive
messages with special text formatting
(such as bold or italic), animations,
pictures, icons, sound effects, and
special ring tones. EMS messages sent
to non-EMS devices will be displayed as
SMS transmissions.
Enhanced Roaming Indicator is a feature
to indicate whether a mobile phone is on
its home system, a partner network, or a
roaming network. Many phones indicate
home vs. roaming as an icon, but ERI
capable phones can clearly indicate
third “partner network” status.

satellites, computers, and receivers able
to determine the latitude and longitude
of a specific receiver on Earth. Position
is calculated using time and distance.
IS 2000
Type of digital signaling. It's the second
generation of CDMA digital cellular, an
extension of IS-95. Differences between
signaling types have to do with pilot
signal and links to provide more traffic
channels, and control protocols.
NAM
Number Assignment Module is how the
phone stores the phone number and its
electronic serial number. A multiple
NAM phone can register with multiple
service providers and be set to
automatically switch between
programmed phone numbers for service
provider areas.
SID
System Identification is a number
transmitted by base stations to identify a
wireless system which conforms to a
TIA cellular or PCS standard.
SID is used by mobile phones to
recognize when they are in their home
system and can be used for billing
purposes as a unique identification of
the serving system.
SMS
Short Message Service is a service
available on most digital mobile phones
to send messages between phones or
other devices. Messages are routed to a
Short Message Service Center (SMSC),
which attempts to send the message
and, if unsuccessful, possibly retry at a
later time. Message delays or message
loss is possible, especially when
sending between networks. Users can
request delivery confirmation reports.
TTY
Teletypewriter. An electromechanical
typewriter that either transmits or
receives messages coded in electrical
signals. A phone with TTY support is
able to translate typed characters to
voice or translate voice into characters
to display on the TTY.
