the types of data you want to sync to the phone, name the account,
and provide other details.

Accounts and sync
NOTE
Configuring account sync settings

all of the applications on your phone. You can also configure what types
of data you synchronize for each account. Some applications, such as
Gmail™ and Calendar, have their own synchronization settings.
NOTES
sSome applications, such as Contacts, Gmail, and Calendar, can
sync data from multiple applications. Others sync data only from
the first Google Account you sign into on your phone, or from an
account associated specifically with that application.
111
sFor some accounts, syncing is two-directional; changes that you
make to the information on your phone are made to the copy of
that information on the web. Your Google Account works this way.

item or send an email.
3. Check or uncheck Auto-sync to control whether changes you make
to information on the phone or on the web are automatically synced

▒▒Electronic Devices
Your wireless handheld portable telephone is a low power radio
transmitter and receiver. When it is ON, it receives and also sends out
radio frequency (RF) signals.
Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from RF energy.
However, certain electronic equipment may not be shielded against the
RF signals from your wireless phone. Therefore, use of your phone must
be restricted in certain situations.
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.
Never come closer than six (6) inches to a person with a heart
pacemaker implant when using your phone. Doing so could result in
interference with the function of the pacemaker.
Persons with pacemakers:
•ALWAYS keep the phone more than six (6) inches from your
pacemaker when the phone is turned on.
•Do not carry the phone in a breast pocket.
•Use the ear opposite the pacemaker to minimize the potential for
interference.
•If you have any reason to suspect that interference is taking place,
turn your phone OFF immediately.
Safety
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).
259
Other Medical Devices
If you use any other personal medical device, consult the manufacturer
of your device to determine if they are adequately shielded from external
RF energy. Your physician may be able to assist you in obtaining this
information.
Hospitals and 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 be using 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 where posted notices so require.
▒▒Aircraft

in a “blasting area” or in areas posted “Turn off two-way radio”. Obey all
signs and instructions.
▒▒Potentially Explosive Atmospheres
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,
clearly marked. They include fueling areas such as gas 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 articles, such as grain, dust, or metal
powders; and any other area where you would normally be advised to
turn off your vehicle’s engine.
Safety Information for FCC RF Exposure
Warning!
Read this information before using.
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 electromagnetic
energy emitted by FCC regulated transmitters. Those guidelines are
international standards bodies. The design of this phone complies with
Safety
consistent with the safety standard previously set by both U.S. and
the FCC guidelines and these international standards.
261
This phone has been tested and rated for use with hearing aids for
some of the wireless technologies that it uses. However, there may
be some newer wireless technologies used in this phone that have
not been tested yet for use with hearing aids. It is important to try the
different features of this phone thoroughly and in different locations,
using your hearing aid or cochlear implant, to determine if you hear any
interfering noise. Consult your service provider or the manufacturer
of this phone for information on hearing aid compatibility. If you have
questions about return or exchange policies, consult your service
provider or phone retailer.
▒▒SAR information
THIS MODEL PHONE MEETS THE GOVERNMENT’S
REQUIREMENTS FOR EXPOSURE TO RADIO WAVES.
Your wireless phone is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed
and manufactured not to exceed the emission limits for exposure
to radiofrequency (RF) energy set by the Federal Communications
Commission 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
Safety
SAR limit set by the FCC is 1.6 W/kg.* Tests for SAR are conducted
with the phone transmitting at its highest certified power level in all
tested frequency bands. Although the 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. This is because the phone
is designed to operate at multiple power levels so as to use only the
262
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.
For body worn operation, this phone has been tested and meets
the FCC RF exposure guidelines when used with an accessory that
contains no metal and that positions the handset a minimum of 1.0 cm
cm from the body. Non-compliance with the above restrictions may
result in violation of FCC RF Exposure guidelines.
The highest SAR value for this model phone when tested for use at the
ear is 1.08W/Kg and when worn on the body, as described in this guide,
is 1.08W/Kg. (Body-worn measurements differ among phone models,
depending upon available accessories and FCC requirements). While
there may be differences between the 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
exposure 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 TYK-JDS9507.
Additional information on Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) can be found
on the Cellular Telecommunications & Internet Association (CTIA) website at http://www.ctia.org.

This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for
a class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These
limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful
interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses
and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used
in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to
radio communications.
However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a
particular installation. if this equipment does cause harmful interference
to television reception, which can be determined by turning the
equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the
interference by one or more of the following measures:
•Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
•Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
•Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to
which the receiver is connected
•Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
▒▒FCC Compliance Information

Cell Phone Facts
Consumer Information on Wireless Phones
▒▒What kinds of phones are the subject of this
update?
The term “wireless phone” refers here to hand-held wireless phones
with built-in antennas, often called “cell,”“mobile,” or “PCS” phones.
These types of wireless phones can expose the user to measurable
radiofrequency energy (RF) because of the short distance between the
phone and the user’s head. These RF exposures are limited by Federal
Communications Commission safety guidelines that were developed
with the advice of 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 socalled “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 well within the FCC’s compliance limits.
▒▒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 radiofrequency energy (RF) in the microwave range while
being used. They also emit very low levels of RF when in the stand-by

suggested that some biological effects may occur, but such findings
265
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.
▒▒What is FDA’s role concerning the safety of
wireless phones?
Under the law, 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
radiofrequency energy (RF) at a level that is hazardous to the user. In
such a case, 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, 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
FDA belongs to an interagency working group of the federal agencies
Safety
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
•Federal Communications Commission
266
•Occupational Safety and Health Administration
•National Telecommunications and Information Administration
The National Institutes of Health participates in some interagency
working group activities, as well.
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. FCC relies on FDA and other health agencies for safety
questions about wireless phones.
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
primary subject of the safety questions discussed in this document.
▒▒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 radiofrequency energy (RF)
exposures characteristic of wireless phones have yielded conflicting
results that often cannot be repeated in other laboratories. A few animal
studies, however, have suggested that low levels of RF could accelerate
the development of cancer in laboratory animals. However, many of
the studies that showed increased tumor development used animals
that had been genetically engineered or treated with cancer-causing
chemicals so as to be pre-disposed to develop cancer in the absence
hours per day. These conditions are not similar to the conditions under
Safety
of RF exposure. Other studies exposed the animals to RF for up to 22
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
267
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.
▒▒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
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 dayto-day use of wireless phones. Many factors affect this measurement,
such as the angle at which the phone is held, or which model of phone
Safety
is used.
▒▒What is FDA doing to find out more about the
possible health effects of wireless phone RF?
FDA is working with the U.S. National Toxicology Program and with
groups of investigators around the world to ensure that high priority
268
animal studies are conducted to address important questions about the
effects of exposure to radiofrequency energy (RF).
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.
FDA and the Cellular Telecommunications & Internet Association (CTIA)
have a formal Cooperative Research and Development Agreement
(CRADA) to do research on wireless phone safety. FDA provides
the scientific oversight, obtaining input from experts in government,
industry, and academic organizations. CTIA-funded research is
conducted through contracts to 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.
▒▒What steps can I take to reduce my exposure to
radiofrequency 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 radiofrequency
energy (RF). Since time is a key factor in how much exposure a person
reduce RF exposure.
Safety
receives, reducing the amount of time spent using a wireless phone will
•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
269
distance. For example, you could use a headset and carry the wireless
phone away from your body or use a wireless phone connected to a
remote antenna.
Again, the scientific data do not demonstrate that wireless phones are
harmful. But if you are concerned about the RF exposure from these
products, you can use measures like those described above to reduce
your RF exposure from wireless phone use.
▒▒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 radiofrequency 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.
▒▒Do hands-free kits for wireless phones reduce
risks from exposure to RF emissions?
Safety
Since there are no known risks from exposure to RF emissions from
wireless phones, there is no reason to believe that hands-free kits
reduce risks. Hands-free kits can be used 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.
270
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.
▒▒Do wireless phone accessories that claim to shield
the head from RF radiation work?
Since there are no known risks from exposure to RF emissions from
wireless phones, there is no reason to believe that accessories that
claim to shield the head from those emissions reduce risks. Some
products that claim to shield the user from RF absorption use special
phone cases, while others involve nothing more than a metallic
accessory attached to the phone. Studies have shown that these
products generally do not work as advertised. Unlike “hands-free” kits,
these so-called “shields” may interfere with proper operation of the
phone. The phone may be forced to boost its power to compensate,
leading to an increase in RF absorption. In February 2002, the Federal
Trade Commission (FTC) charged two companies that sold devices
that claimed to protect wireless phone users from radiation with making
false and unsubstantiated claims. According to FTC, these defendants
lacked a reasonable basis to substantiate their claim.
▒▒What about wireless phone interference with
medical equipment?
Radiofrequency energy (RF) from wireless phones can interact with
test method to measure electromagnetic interference (EMI) of implanted
Safety
some electronic devices. For this reason, FDA helped develop a detailed
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).
271
The final draft, a joint effort by 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.
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.
FDA continues to monitor the use of wireless phones for possible
interactions with other medical devices. Should harmful interference be
found to occur, FDA will conduct testing to assess the interference and
work to resolve the problem.

Emergency Calls
Never rely solely upon your wireless phone for essential
communications (e.g., medical emergencies), if it can be
avoided, since a wireless phone requires a complex combination of
radio signals, relay stations and landline networks for its operation.
Consequently, emergency calls may not always be possible under
all conditions on all wireless phone systems. Your wireless phone,
Safety
however, may sometimes be the only available means of communication
at the scene of an accident. When making an emergency call, always
give the recipient all necessary information as accurately as possible.
Never terminate an emergency call until you have received clearance to
do so.
272
▒▒FCC Enhanced 911 (E911) Rules
Background
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) requires wireless
carriers to transmit specific latitude and longitude location (Automatic
Location Identification = ALI) information as well as “911” calls to Public
Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) to identify the location of the caller
in case of emergency. Generally, the rules require that carriers identify
an E911 caller’s location within 50 meters of the actual location for
67 percent of calls and within 150 meters of the actual location for 95
percent of calls.
▒▒CASIO C811™ — ALI Capability
The Commando™ is an ALI-capable phone equipped with a GPS
(Global Positioning System) receiver supporting a satellite-based GPS
ALI-capable network to comply with the FCC’s ALI requirements.
The network compliance with the above FCC requirements is
dependent on: (a) the use of digital technology by the wireless
network; (b) GPS satellite signals being able to reach the handset
(such transmissions do not always work indoors, for example); and (c)
handset signals reaching wireless “base stations” (atmospheric and
environmental conditions may cause variations in handset receiving
signal strength).
Also the transmission of the ALI information is subject, in part, to system
constraints within the wireless network to which the E911 signal is
transmitted and over which PCD has no control.
Finally, customers are advised that the Commando’s ALI capability is to
be used for E911 purposes only.

▒▒Hearing Aid Compatibility (HAC) for Wireless
Telecommunications Devices
PCD’s Commitment
PCD believes that all of our customers should be able to enjoy the
benefits of digital wireless technologies. We are committed to providing
a selection of compatible devices for our customers who wear hearing
aids.
THIS PHONE HAS HAC RATINGS OF M3/T4
What is Hearing Aid Compatibility?
The Federal Communications Commission has implemented rules and
a rating system designed to enable people who wear hearing aids to
more effectively use these wireless telecommunications devices. The
standard for compatibility of digital wireless phones with hearing aids
is set forth in American National Standard Institute (ANSI) standard
C63.19. There are two sets of ANSI standards with ratings from one to
four (four being the best rating): an “M” rating for reduced interference
making it easier to hear conversations on the phone when using the
hearing aid microphone, and a “T” rating that enables the phone to be
Safety
used with hearing aids operating in the telecoil mode thus reducing
unwanted background noise.
How will I know which wireless phones are Hearing
Aid Compatible?
The Hearing Aid Compatibility rating is displayed on the wireless phone
282
box.
A phone is considered Hearing Aid Compatible for acoustic coupling
(microphone mode) if it has an “M3” or “M4” rating. A digital wireless
phone is considered Hearing Aid Compatible for inductive coupling
(telecoil mode) if it has a “T3” or “T4” rating.
How will I know if my hearing aid will work with a
particular digital wireless phone?
You’ll want to try a number of wireless phones so that you can decide
which works the best with your hearing aids.
You may also want to talk with your hearing aid professional about the
extent to which your hearing aids are immune to interference, if they
have wireless phone shielding, and whether your hearing aid has a HAC
rating.

send and receive calls. You must plug the TTY device into the phone’s
modes.
A TTY is a communication device used by people who are hard of
hearing or have a speech impairment. TTY does not work from mobile
283
phone to mobile phone. Your phone has a 3.5mm jack. Use a TSB-121
compliant cable (provided by the TTY manufacturer) and a 3.5mm to
2.5mm Audio Adapter to connect the TTY device to your phone. Set the
phone to Medium volume level for proper operation. If you experience
a high number of incorrect characters, adjust the volume as needed to
minimize the error rate. For optimal performance, your phone should
be at least 12 inches (30 centimeters) from the TTY device. Placing the
phone too close to the TTY device may cause high error rates.
▒▒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 noise-induced 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 common sense
recommendations when using any portable audio device:
•Set the volume in a quiet environment and select the lowest volume at
Safety
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
284
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 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.
