Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) certification information Phone layout 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 W/kg. During testing, the maximum SAR values recorded for this model were: Network Frequency GSM850 GSM1900 1 Confirm key Select the highlighted menu option or confirm an input; In Idle mode, access Menu mode Depending on your service provider or region, the key may perform differently Specific Absorption Rate (W/kg) Held to ear Worn on body1 0.682 0.48 0.427 0.179 1. When used with accessories that contain no metal and provide at least 1.5 cm separation between the device (including the antenna, whether extended or retracted) and the wearer’s body. 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 device 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 www.fcc.gov/oet/ea (search for grantee code A3L and product code GTE1182L). 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 2 Dial key Make or answer a call; In Idle mode, retrieve logs of your calls and messages; Send an SOS message See "Activate and send an SOS message" 3 Voice mail service key In Idle mode, access voice mails (press and hold) 4 Keypad lock key In Idle mode, lock or unlock the keypad (press and hold) 5 Softkeys Perform actions indicated at the bottom of the display 6 4-way navigation key Scroll through menu options; In Idle mode, access userdefined menus (left/right/ up/down); Make a fake call (down) See "Make fake calls" Depending on your service provider, the default home screen or pre-defined menus may differ 7 Power/End key Turn the phone on and off (press and hold); End a call; In Menu mode, cancel input and return to Idle mode 8 Alphanumeric key 9 SIM selection key In Idle mode, switch between SIM cards (press and hold) Your phone displays the following status indicators on the top of the screen: Icon Description Icon Description Signal strength1 FM radio suspended Call in progress New text message (SMS) Call diverting activated SOS message feature activated Alarm activated Roaming (outside of normal service area) FM radio on New voice mail message Normal profile activated Silent profile activated Battery power level 1.This icon may vary depending on your SIM card setting.
