We recommend that you read this chapter carefully before using your phone. The
manufacturer disclaims any liability for damage, which may result as a consequence of
improper use or use contrary to the instructions contained herein.
Given that studies show that using a mobile phone while driving a vehicle constitutes
a real risk, even when the hands-free kit is used (car kit, headset...), drivers are
requested to refrain from using their mobile when the vehicle is not parked.
When driving, do not use your phone and headphone to listen to music or to the
radio. Using a headphone can be dangerous and forbidden in some areas.
When switched on, your phone emits electromagnetic waves that can interfere with
the vehicle’s electronic systems such as ABS anti-lock brakes or airbags. To ensure
that there is no problem:
- do not place your phone on top of the dashboard or within an airbag deployment
- check with your car dealer or the car manufacturer to make sure that the dashboard
is adequately shielded from mobile phone RF energy.

When the phone is switched on, it should be kept at least 15 cm from any medical
device such as a pacemaker, a hearing aid or insulin pump, etc. In particular when using
the phone, you should hold it against the ear on the opposite side to the device, if any.
To avoid hearing impairment, pick up the call before holding your phone to your
ear. Also move the handset away from your ear while using the "hands-free" mode
because the amplified volume might cause hearing damage.

taking photographs and recording sounds with your mobile telephone. Pursuant to
such laws and regulations, it may be strictly forbidden to take photographs and/or to
record the voices of other people or any of their personal attributes, and duplicate
or distribute them, as this may be considered to be an invasion of privacy. It is the
user's sole responsibility to ensure that prior authorisation be obtained, if necessary,

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 W/kg.
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:
This symbol on your telephone, the battery and the accessories means that
these products must be taken to collection points at the end of their life:
- Municipal waste disposal centres with specific bins for these items of
- Collection bins at points of sale.
They will then be recycled, preventing substances being disposed of in the
environment, so that their components can be reused.
In European Union countries:
These collection points are accessible free of charge.
All products with this sign must be brought to these collection points.
In non European Union jurisdictions:
Items of equipment with this symbol are not to be thrown into ordinary bins if your
jurisdiction or your region has suitable recycling and collection facilities; instead they
are to be taken to collection points for them to be recycled.
Maximum SAR for this model and conditions under which it was recorded.

0.857 W/kg
Maximum SAR for this model and conditions under which it was recorded.
Mains powered chargers will operate within the temperature range of: 0°C to 40°C.
The chargers designed for your mobile phone meet with the standard for safety of
information technology equipment and office equipment use. They are also compliant
to the ecodesign directive 2009/125/EC. Due to different applicable electrical
specifications, a charger you purchased in one jurisdiction may not work in another
jurisdiction. They should be used for this purpose only.
Head SAR

0.566 W/kg
Body-worn SAR
UMTS 2100 + Bluetooth + Wi-Fi
0.857 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 minimize
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.
Body-worn SAR testing has been carried out at a separation distance of 10 mm.
To meet RF exposure guidelines during body-worn operation, the device should be
positioned at least this distance away from the body. If you are not using an approved
accessory ensure that whatever product is used is free of any metal and that it
positions the phone the indicated distance away from the body.
Organizations such as the World Health Organization and the US Food and Drug
Administration have statesd that if people are concerned and want to reduce their
exposure they could use a hands-free device to keep the phone away from the head
and body during phone calls, or reduce the amount of time spent on the phone.

Additional information about electromagnetic fields and public health are available on
the following site:
Your telephone is equipped with a built-in antenna. For optimal operation, you should
avoid touching it or degrading it.
Proof of compliance with international standards (ICNIRP) or with European
Directive 1999/5/EC (R&TTE) is required of all mobile phone models before they can
be put on the market. The protection of the health and safety for the user and any
other person is an essential requirement of these standards or this directive.
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 organization (ICNIRP) and include a substantial safety margin
designed to assure the safety of all persons, regardless of age and health.
• Regulatory information
As mobile devices offer a range of functions, they can be used in positions other than
against your ear. In such circumstances the device will be compliant with the guidelines
when used with headset or usb data cable. If you are using another accessory ensure
that whatever product is used is free of any metal and that it positions the phone at
least 10 mm away from the body.
