Health and safety information
SAR certification information
This phone meets European Union (EU)
requirements concerning exposure to radio
waves.
Your mobile phone is a radio transmitter and
receiver. It is designed and manufactured to not
exceed the limits for exposure to radiofrequency (RF) energy, as recommended by the
EU Council. These limits are part of
comprehensive guidelines and establish
permitted levels of RF energy for the general
population. The guidelines were developed by
independent scientific organisations through
the periodic and thorough evaluation of
scientific studies. The limits include a
substantial safety margin designed to ensure
the safety of all persons, regardless of age and
health.
123
E690.book Page 124 Wednesday, October 11, 2006 2:42 PM
Health and safety information
The exposure standard for mobile phones
employs a unit of measurement known as
Specific Absorption Rate (SAR). The SAR limit
recommended by the EU Council is 2.0W/kg.1
The highest SAR value for this model phone was
0.714 W/kg.
SAR tests are conducted using standard
operating positions 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.
1. The SAR limit for mobile phones used by the public is
2.0 watts/kilogram (W/kg) averaged over ten grams of
body tissue. The limit incorporates a substantial margin
of safety to give additional protection for the public and
to account for any variations in measurements. The SAR
values may vary, depending on national reporting
requirements and the network band.
124
This is because the phone is designed to
operate at multiple power levels so as to use
only the power required to reach the network.
In general, the closer you are to a base station,
the lower the power output of the phone.
Before a new model phone is available for sale
to the public, compliance with the European
R&TTE Directive must be shown. This directive
includes as one of its essential requirements the
protection of the health and safety of the user
and any other person.
Precautions when using batteries
• Never use a charger or battery that is
damaged in any way.
• Use the battery only for its intended
purpose.
• If you use the phone near the network’s
base station, it uses less power. Talk and
standby time are greatly affected by the
E690.book Page 125 Wednesday, October 11, 2006 2:42 PM
• Extreme temperatures will affect the
charging capacity of your battery: it may
require cooling or warming first.
• Do not leave the battery in hot or cold places
because the capacity and lifetime of the
battery will be reduced. Try to keep the
battery at room temperature. A phone with a
hot or cold battery may not work
temporarily, even when the battery is fully
charged. Li-ion batteries are particularly
affected by temperatures below 0°C (32°F).
• Do not short-circuit the battery. Accidental
short-circuiting can occur when a metallic
object like a coin, clip or pen causes a direct
connection between the + and – terminals of
the battery (metal strips on the battery). For
example, do not carry a spare battery in a
pocket or bag where the battery may contact
metal objects. Short-circuiting the terminals
may damage the battery or the object
causing the short-circuiting.
Health and safety information
signal strength on the cellular network and
the parameters set by the network operator.
• Battery charging time depends on the
remaining battery charge, the type of
battery, and the charger used. The battery
can be charged and discharged hundreds of
times, but it will gradually wear out. When
the operation time is noticeably shorter than
normal, it is time to buy a new battery.
• If left unused, a fully charged battery will
discharge itself over time.
• Use only Samsung-approved batteries, and
recharge your battery only with Samsungapproved chargers. Disconnect the charger
from the power source when it is not in use.
Do not leave the battery connected to a
charger for more than a week, since
overcharging may shorten its life.
125

Health and safety information
• Dispose of used batteries in accordance with
local regulations. Always recycle. Do not
dispose of batteries in a fire.
Road safety
Your wireless phone gives you the powerful
ability to communicate by voice, almost
anywhere, anytime. But an important
responsibility accompanies the benefits of
wireless phones, one that every user must
uphold.
When driving a car, driving is your first
responsibility. When using your wireless phone
while driving, follow local regulations in the
country or region you are in.
126
Operating environment
Remember to follow any special regulations in
force in the area you are in, and always switch
off your phone whenever it is forbidden to use
it, or when it may cause interference or danger.
When connecting the phone or any accessory to
another device, read its user’s guide for
detailed safety instructions. Do not connect
incompatible products.
As with other mobile radio transmitting
equipment, users are advised that for the
satisfactory operation of the equipment and for
the safety of personnel, it is recommended that
the equipment should only be used in the
normal operating position (held to your ear with
the antenna pointing over your shoulder).
E690.book Page 127 Wednesday, October 11, 2006 2:42 PM
Hearing aids
Most modern electronic equipment is shielded
from radio frequency (RF) signals. However,
certain electronic equipment may not be
shielded against the RF signals from your
wireless phone. Consult the manufacturer to
discuss alternatives.
Some digital wireless phones may interfere with
some hearing aids. In the event of such
interference, you may wish to consult your
hearing aid manufacturer to discuss
alternatives.
Pacemakers
If you use any other personal medical devices,
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.
Switch off your phone in health care facilities
when regulations posted in these areas instruct
you to do so.
Pacemaker manufacturers recommend that a
minimum distance of 15 cm (6 inches) be
maintained between a wireless phone and a
pacemaker to avoid potential interference with
the pacemaker. These recommendations are
consistent with the independent research and
recommendations of Wireless Technology
Research. If you have any reason to suspect
that interference is taking place, switch off your
phone immediately.

128
Users are advised to switch off the phone while
at a refuelling point (service station). Users are
reminded of the need to observe restrictions on
the use of radio equipment in fuel depots (fuel
storage and distribution areas), chemical
plants, or where blasting operations are in
progress.
Areas with a potentially explosive atmosphere
are often but not always clearly marked. They
include the areas below decks on boats,
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.
E690.book Page 129 Wednesday, October 11, 2006 2:42 PM

your local cellular service provider.
Other important safety information
• Only qualified personnel should service the
phone or install the phone in a vehicle.
Faulty installation or service may be
dangerous and may invalidate any warranty
applicable to the device.
• Check regularly that all wireless phone
equipment in your vehicle is mounted and
operating properly.
• Do not store or carry flammable liquids,
gases, or explosive materials in the same
compartment as the phone, its parts, or
accessories.
Health and safety information
This phone, like any wireless phone, operates
using radio signals, wireless, and landline
networks as well as user-programmed
functions, which cannot guarantee connection
in all conditions. Therefore, you should never
rely solely on any wireless phone for essential
communications like medical emergencies.
To make or receive calls, the phone must be
switched on and in a service area with adequate
signal strength. Emergency calls may not be
possible on all wireless phone networks or when
certain network services and/or phone features
are in use. Check with local service providers.
To make an emergency call:

Health and safety information
• For vehicles equipped with an air bag,
remember that an air bag inflates with great
force. Do not place objects, including
installed or portable wireless equipment, in
the area over the air bag or in the air bag
deployment area. Improperly installed
wireless equipment could result in serious
injury if the air bag inflates.
• Switch off your phone before boarding an
aircraft. It is dangerous and illegal to use
wireless phones in an aircraft because they
can interfere with the operation of the
aircraft.
• Failure to observe these instructions may
lead to the suspension or denial of telephone
services to the offender, or legal action, or
both.
130
Care and maintenance
Your phone is a product of superior design and
craftsmanship and should be treated with care.
The suggestions below will help you fulfill any
warranty obligations and allow you to enjoy this
product for many years.
• Keep your phone and all its parts and
accessories out of the reach of small children
and pets. They may accidentally damage
these things or choke on small parts.
• Keep the phone dry. Precipitation, humidity,
and liquids contain minerals that corrode
electronic circuits.
• Do not use the phone with a wet hand. Doing
so may cause an electric shock to you or
damage to the phone.
• Do not use or store the phone in dusty, dirty
areas, as its moving parts may be damaged.
E690.book Page 131 Wednesday, October 11, 2006 2:42 PM
• Do not put the phone in or on heating
devices, such as a microwave oven, stove, or
radiator. The phone may explode when
overheated.
• When the phone or battery gets wet, the
label indicating water damage inside the
phone changes colour. In this case, phone
repairs are no longer guaranteed by the
manufacturer's warranty, even if the
warranty for your phone has not expired.
• If your phone has a flash or light, do not use
it too close to the eyes of people or animals.
This may cause damage to their eyes.
• Use only the supplied or an approved
replacement antenna. Unauthorised
antennas or modified accessories may
damage the phone and violate regulations
governing radio devices.
Health and safety information
• Do not store the phone in hot areas. High
temperatures can shorten the life of
electronic devices, damage batteries, and
warp or melt certain plastics.
• Do not store the phone in cold areas. When
