Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) certification information THIS DEVICE MEETS INTERNATIONAL GUIDELINES FOR EXPOSURE TO RADIO WAVES Your mobile device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed not to exceed the limits for exposure to radio waves (radio frequency electromagnetic fields) recommended by international guidelines. The guidelines were developed by an independent scientific organisation (ICNIRP) and include a substantial safety margin designed to assure the safety of all persons, regardless of age and health. The radio wave exposure guidelines use a unit of measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit for mobile devices is 2.0 W/kg. • Never dispose of the battery or device in a fire. Follow all local regulations when disposing of used battery or device. • Never place the battery or device on or in heating devices, such as microwave ovens, stoves, or radiators. The device may explode when overheated. • Never crush or puncture the device. Avoid exposing the device to high external pressure, which can lead to an internal short circuit and overheating. Protect the device, battery and charger from damage • Avoid exposing your device and battery to very cold or very hot temperatures. • Extreme temperatures can damage the device and reduce the charging capacity and life of your device and battery. • Prevent the battery from coming into contact with metal objects, as this can create a connection between the + and – terminals of your battery and lead to temporary or permanent battery damage. • Never use a damaged charger or battery. Caution: Follow all safety warnings and regulations when using your device in restricted areas Do not use your device near other electronic devices Most electronic devices use radio frequency signals. Your device may interfere with other electronic devices. Do not use your device near a pacemaker • Avoid using your device within a 15 cm range of a pacemaker, if possible, as your device can interfere with the pacemaker. • To minimise possible interference with a pacemaker, use your device only on the side of your body that is opposite the pacemaker. Use caution when exposed to flashing lights • While using your device, leave some lights on in the room and do not hold the screen too close to your eyes. • Seizures or blackouts can occur when you are exposed to flashing lights while watching videos or playing Flash-based games for extended periods. If you feel any discomfort, stop using the device immediately. Reduce the risk of repetitive motion injuries When you repetitively perform actions, such as pressing keys, drawing characters on a touch screen with your fingers, or playing games, you may experience occasional discomfort in your hands, neck, shoulders, or other parts of your body. When using your device for extended periods, hold the device with a relaxed grip, press the keys lightly, and take frequent breaks. If you continue to have discomfort during or after such use, stop using the device and consult a physician. Ensure maximum battery and charger life • Avoid charging your device for more than a week, as overcharging may shorten battery life. • Over time, unused device will discharge and must be recharged before use. • Disconnect the charger from power sources when not in use. • Use the battery only for their intended purposes. Use manufacturer-approved batteries, chargers, accessories, and supplies • Using generic battery or charger may shorten the life of your device or cause the device to malfunction. • Samsung cannot be responsible for the user’s safety when using accessories or supplies that are not approved by Samsung. Do not bite or suck the device or the battery • Doing so may damage the device or cause an explosion. • If children use the device, make sure that they use the device properly. Tests for SAR are conducted using standard operating positions with the device transmitting at its highest certified power level in all tested frequency bands. The highest SAR values under the ICNIRP guidelines for this device model are: Maximum SAR for this model and conditions under which it was recorded Head SAR 0.925 W/kg Body-worn SAR 0.365 W/kg During use, the actual SAR values for this device are usually well below the values stated above. This is because, for purposes of system efficiency and to minimise interference on the network, the operating power of your mobile device is automatically decreased when full power is not needed for the call. The lower the power output of the device, the lower its SAR value. A body-worn SAR test has been performed on this device at a separation distance of 1.5 cm. To meet RF exposure guidelines during body-worn operation, the device must be positioned at least 1.5 cm away from the body. Organisations such as the World Health Organisation and the US Food and Drug Administration have suggested that if people are concerned and want to reduce their exposure, they could use a hands-free accessory to keep the wireless device away from the head and body during use, or reduce the amount of time spent using the device. For more information, visit www.samsung.com/sar and search for your device with the model number. Do not use your device in a hospital or near medical equipment that can be interfered with by radio frequency If you use medical equipment, contact the equipment manufacturer before using your device to determine whether or not the equipment will be affected by radio frequencies emitted by the device. If you use a hearing aid, contact the manufacturer for information about radio interference The radio frequency emitted by your device may interfere with some hearing aids. Before using your device, contact the manufacturer to determine whether or not your hearing aid will be affected by radio frequencies emitted by the device. Turn off the device in potentially explosive environments • Turn off your device in potentially explosive environments instead of removing the battery. • Always comply with regulations, instructions and signs in potentially explosive environments. • Do not use your device at refuelling points (petrol stations), near fuels or chemicals, or in blasting areas. • Do not store or carry flammable liquids, gases, or explosive materials in the same compartment as the device, its parts, or accessories. Turn off your device when on an aircraft Your device may interfere with the aircraft’s electronic navigation instruments. Your device may interfere with automotive equipment Electronic devices in your car may malfunction, due to radio interference from your device. Contact the manufacturer for more information. Do not insert the device or supplied accessories into the eyes, ears, or mouth Doing so may cause suffocation or serious injuries. When using the device: • Hold the device upright, as you would with a traditional phone. • Speak directly into the microphone. • Do not touch the device’s internal antenna. Doing so may result in reduced call quality or cause the device to emit unintended levels of radio frequency (RF) energy. Internal antenna Protect your hearing and ears when using a headset • Excessive exposure to loud sounds can cause hearing damage. • Exposure to loud sounds while driving may distract your attention and cause an accident. • Always turn the volume down before plugging the earphones into an audio source and use only the minimum volume setting necessary to hear your conversation or music. • In dry environments, static electricity can build up in the headset. Avoid using headsets in dry environments or touch a metal object to discharge static electricity before connecting a headset to the device. Comply with all safety warnings and regulations regarding mobile device usage while operating a vehicle While driving, safely operating the vehicle is your first responsibility. Never use your mobile device while driving, if it is prohibited by law. For your safety and the safety of others, use your common sense and remember the following tips: • Get to know your device and its convenience features, such as speed dial and redial.
