Protecting Your Phone With
Encryption
You can encrypt all the data on your phone: Google
Accounts, application data, music and other media,
downloaded information, and so on. If you do, you must enter
a numeric PIN or a password each time you power on your
phone.
WARNING! Encryption is irreversible. The only way to revert
to an unencrypted phone is to perform a factory data reset
which erases all your data.
Encryption provides additional protection in case your phone
is stolen and may be required or recommended in some
organizations. Consult your system administrator before
turning it on. In many cases the PIN or password you set for
encryption is controlled by the system administrator.
Before turning on encryption, prepare as follows:
•
Set a lock screen PIN or password.
•
Charge the battery.
•
Keep the phone connected to the charger.
•
Schedule an hour or more for the encryption process. You
must not interrupt it or you will lose some or all of your data.
When you're ready to turn on encryption:
1. Touch Home Key >
phone.
> Settings > Security > Encrypt
27
2. Read the information about encryption carefully.
The Encrypt phone button is dimmed if your battery is not
charged or your phone is not plugged in.
If you change your mind about encrypting your phone, touch
.
WARNING! If you interrupt the encryption process, you will
lose data.
3. Touch Encrypt phone.
4. Enter your lock screen PIN or password and touch Next.
5. Touch Encrypt phone again.
The encryption process starts and displays its progress.
Encryption can take an hour or more, during which time your
phone may restart several times.
When encryption is completed, you're prompted to enter your
PIN or password.
Subsequently you must enter your PIN or password each time
you power on your phone in order to decrypt it.

Radio Frequency (RF) Exposure
General Statement on RF Energy
Your phone contains a transmitter and a receiver. When it is
ON, it receives and transmits RF energy. When you
communicate with your phone, the system handling your call
controls the power level at which your phone transmits.
Specific Absorption Rate (SAR)
Your mobile device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is
designed not to exceed the limits for exposure to radio waves
recommended by international guidelines. These guidelines
were developed by the independent scientific organization
ICNIRP and include safety margins designed to assure the
protection of all persons, regardless of age and health.
The guidelines use a unit of measurement known as Specific
126
Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit for mobile devices is
2 W/kg and the highest SAR value for this device when
tested at the ear was 0.632 W/kg*. As mobile devices offer a
range of functions, they can be used in other positions, such
as on the body as described in this user guide**.
As SAR is measured utilizing the device’s highest
transmitting power, the actual SAR of this device while
operating is typically below that indicated above. This is due
to automatic changes to the power level of the device to
ensure it only uses the minimum power required to
communicate with the network.
* The tests are carried out in accordance with EN 50360, EN
62479, EN 62209-1, EN 62209-2.
** Please see body worn operation.
Body Worn Operation
Important safety information regarding radio frequency
radiation (RF) exposure:
To ensure compliance with RF exposure guidelines the
phone must be used with a minimum of 15 mm separation
from the body.
Failure to observe these instructions could result in your RF
exposure exceeding the relevant guideline limits.
127
Limiting Exposure to Radio Frequency (RF)
Fields
For individuals concerned about limiting their exposure to RF
fields, the World Health Organization (WHO) provides the
following advice:
Precautionary measures: Present scientific information does
not indicate the need for any special precautions for the use
of mobile phones. If individuals are concerned, they might
choose to limit their own or their children’s RF exposure by
limiting the length of calls, or using ‘hands-free’ devices to
keep mobile phones away from the head and body.
Further information on this subject can be obtained from the
WHO home page http://www.who.int/peh-emf (WHO Fact
sheet 193: June 2000).
Regulatory Information
The following approvals and notices apply in specific regions
as noted.
Please find the section Declaration of RoHS Compliance and
CE DOC in the end of this manual.
128
Distraction
Driving

Radio Frequency Interference
General Statement on Interference
Care must be taken when using the phone in close proximity
to personal medical devices, such as pacemakers and
hearing aids.
Pacemakers
Pacemaker manufacturers recommend that a minimum
separation of 15 cm be maintained between a mobile phone
and a pacemaker to avoid potential interference with the
pacemaker. To achieve this, use the phone on the opposite
134
ear to your pacemaker and do not carry it in a breast pocket.
Hearing Aids
People with hearing aids or other cochlear implants may
experience interfering noises when using wireless devices or
when one is nearby.
The level of interference will depend on the type of hearing
device and the distance from the interference source.
Increasing the separation between them may reduce the
interference. You may also consult your hearing aid
manufacturer to discuss alternatives.
Medical Devices
Please consult your doctor and the device manufacturer to
determine if operation of your phone may interfere with the
operation of your medical device.
Hospitals
Turn off your wireless device when requested to do so in
hospitals, clinics or health care facilities. These requests are
designed to prevent possible interference with sensitive
medical equipment.
Aircraft
Turn off your wireless device whenever you are instructed to
do so by airport or airline staff.
135
Consult the airline staff about the use of wireless devices
onboard the aircraft. If your device offers a ‘flight mode’, this
must be enabled prior to boarding an aircraft.
Interference in Cars
Please note that because of possible interference with
electronic equipment, some vehicle manufacturers forbid the
use of mobile phones in their vehicles unless a hands-free kit
with an external antenna is included in the installation.
Explosive Environments
Gas Stations and Explosive Atmospheres
In locations with potentially explosive atmospheres, obey all
posted signs to turn off wireless devices such as your phone
