Comply with the following precautions to avoid dangerous or illegal situations and ensure peak performance
of your mobile phone.
Handle and dispose of batteries and chargers
with care
Turn off the phone in potentially explosive
• Use only Samsung-approved batteries and chargers
specifically designed for your phone.
Incompatible batteries and chargers can cause serious
injuries or damage to your phone.
• Never dispose of batteries or phones in a fire. Follow
all local regulations when disposing used batteries or
• Never place batteries or phones on or in heating
devices, such as microwave ovens, stoves, or
radiators. Batteries may explode when overheated.
• Never crush or puncture the battery. Avoid exposing
the battery to high external pressure, which can lead to
an internal short circuit and overheating.
Do not use your phone at refueling points (service
stations) or near fuels or chemicals. Turn off your phone
whenever directed by warning signs or instructions.
Your phone could cause explosions or fire in and
around fuel or chemical storage and transfer areas or
blasting areas. Do not store or carry flammable liquids,
gases, or explosive materials in the same compartment
as the phone, its parts, or accessories.
Avoid interference with pacemakers
Reduce the risk of repetitive motion injuries
While using your phone, hold the phone with a relaxed
grip, press the buttons lightly, use special features that
reduce the number of buttons you have to press (such
as templates and predictive text), and take frequent
Ensure that any mobile phones or related equipment
installed in your vehicle are securely mounted. Avoid
placing your phone and accessories near or in an air
bag deployment area. Improperly installed wireless
equipment can cause serious injury when air bags inflate
Maintain a minimum of 15 cm between mobile phones
and pacemakers to avoid potential interference, as
recommended by manufacturers and the independent
research group, Wireless Technology Research. If you
have any reason to suspect that your phone is interfering
with a pacemaker or other medical device, turn off the
phone immediately and contact the manufacturer of the
pacemaker or medical device for guidance.
Protect batteries and chargers from damage
Avoid interference with other electronic devices
Ensure maximum battery and charger life
• Avoid exposing batteries to very cold or very hot
temperatures (below 0° C/32° F or above 45° C/
113° F). Extreme temperatures can reduce the
charging capacity and life of your batteries.
• Prevent batteries from contacting metal objects, as this
can create a connection between the + and – terminals
of your batteries and lead to temporary or permanent
battery damage.
• Never use a damaged charger or battery.
Your phone emits radio frequency (RF) signals that
may interfere with unshielded or improperly shielded
electronic equipment, such as pacemakers, hearing
aids, medical devices, and other electronic devices in
homes or vehicles. Consult the manufacturers of your
electronic devices to solve any interference problems
you experience.
• Avoid charging batteries for more than a week, as
overcharging may shorten battery life.
• Over time, unused batteries will discharge and must
be recharged before use.
• Disconnect chargers from power sources when not
in use.
• Use batteries only for their intended purpose.

Safety precautions
Drive safely at all times
Avoid using your phone while driving and obey all
regulations that restrict the use of mobile phones while
driving. Use hands-free accessories to increase your
safety when possible.
Follow all safety warnings and regulations
Comply with any regulations that restrict the use of a
mobile phone in a certain area.
Use only Samsung-approved accessories
Using incompatible accessories may damage your
phone or cause injury.
Turn off the phone near medical equipment
Your phone can interfere with medical equipment in
hospitals or health care facilities. Follow all regulations,
posted warnings, and directions from medical
Turn off the phone or disable the wireless
functions when in an aircraft
Your phone can cause interference with aircraft
equipment. Follow all airline regulations and turn off
your phone or switch to a mode that disables the
wireless functions when directed by airline personnel.
Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) certification
Your device conforms to U.S. Federal Communications
Commission (FCC) standards that limit human
exposure to radio frequency (RF) energy emitted by
radio and telecommunications equipment. These
standards prevent the sale of mobile devices that
exceed a maximum exposure level (known as the
Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR) of 1.6 watts per
kilogram of body tissue.
During testing, the maximum SAR values recorded for
this model were: In normal use, the actual SAR is likely
to be much lower, as the device has been designed to
emit only the RF energy necessary to transmit a signal
to the nearest base station. By automatically emitting
lower levels when possible, your device reduces your
overall exposure to RF energy.
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization
for this model phone based on the compliance of
all reported SAR levels with the FCC RF exposure
guidelines. The authorization can be found on the FCC
Office of Engineering and Technology website at http:// (search for grantee code A3L and
product code SCHB519).
Handle UIM cards and memory cards with care
