Guidelines for safe and efficient
use
Please read these simple guidelines. Not following these guidelines may be
dangerous or illegal.
Should a fault occur, a software tool is built into your device that will gather a
fault log. This tool gathers only data specific to the fault, such as signal strength,
cell ID position in sudden call drop and applications loaded. The log is used only to
help determine the cause of the fault. These logs are encrypted and can only be
accessed by an authorised LG Repair centre should you need to return your device
for repair.
Important information about the device
• Device apps and services are subject to change or cancellation without notice,
depending on the provider’s situation and the software version.
• When the device is turned on for the first time, an initial configuration takes
place. The first booting time may be longer than usual.
Read before use
• To purchase optional items, contact the LG Customer Information Centre for
available dealers.
• The appearance and specifications of the device are subject to change without
notice.
• Do not use LG products for other purposes than those originally intended. Using
non-certified apps or software may damage the device and this is not covered
by warranty.

Exposure to radio frequency energy
Radio wave exposure and Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) information.
This device has been designed to comply with applicable safety requirements for
exposure to radio waves. These requirements are based on scientific guidelines that
include safety margins designed to assure the safety of all persons, regardless of
age and health.
• The radio wave exposure guidelines employ a unit of measurement known
as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. Tests for SAR are conducted using
standardised methods with the device transmitting at its highest certified
power level in all used frequency bands.
• While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various LG device
models, they are all designed to meet the relevant guidelines for exposure to
radio waves.
• The SAR limit recommended by the International Commission on Non-Ionizing
Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) is 2 W/kg averaged over 10 g of tissue.
• The highest SAR value for this model tested for use at the ear is 0.556 W/kg
(10 g) and when worn on the body is 1.270 W/kg (10 g).
• This device meets RF exposure guidelines when used either in the normal use
position against the ear or when positioned at least 5 mm away from the
body. When a carry case, belt clip or holder is used for body-worn operation, it
should not contain metal and should position the product at least 5 mm away
from your body. In order to transmit data files or messages, this device requires
a quality connection to the network. In some cases, transmission of data files
or messages may be delayed until such a connection is available. Ensure the
above separation distance instructions are followed until the transmission is
completed.

Information about the RF exposure from FCC
In August 1996, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) of the United
States, with its action in Report and Order FCC 96-326, adopted an updated safety
standard for human exposure to radio frequency (RF) electromagnetic energy
emitted by FCC regulated transmitters. Those guidelines are consistent with the
safety standard previously set by both international and U.S. standards. The design
of this device complies with FCC guidelines and these international standards.
Part 15.19 statement
This device complies with part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the
following two conditions:
(1) This device may not cause harmful interference, and
(2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that
may cause undesired operation.
Part 15.21 Statement
Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the manufacturer could void
the user’s authority to operate the equipment.
Body-worn Operation
This device was tested for typical bodyworn operations with the back of the device
kept 0.39 inches (1cm) between the user’s body and the back of the device. To
comply with FCC RF exposure requirements, a minimum separation distance of
0.39 inches (1cm) must be maintained between the user’s body and the back of
the device.
Any beltclips, holsters, and similar accessories containing metallic components
may not be used. Body-worn accessories that cannot maintain 0.39 inches (1cm)
separation distance between the user’s body and the back of the device, and have
not been tested for typical body-worn operations may not comply with FCC RF
exposure limits and should be avoided.
Guidelines for safe and efficient use

Anti-Theft Guide
Set up your device to prevent other people from using it if it’s been reset
to factory settings without your permission. For example, if your device is
lost, stolen, or wiped, only someone with your Google account or screen
lock information can use the device.
All you need to make sure your device is protected is:
• Set a screen lock: If your device is lost or stolen but you have a screen
lock set, the device can’t be erased using the Settings menu unless
your screen is unlocked.
• Add your Google account on your device: If your device is wiped but
you have your Google account on it, the device can’t finish the setup
process until your Google account information is entered again.
After your device is protected, you’ll need to either unlock your screen or
enter your Google account password if you need to do a factory reset.
This ensures that you or someone you trust is doing the reset.
• Do not forget your Google account and password you had added to
your device prior to performing a factory reset. If you can’t provide the
account information during the setup process, you won’t be able to use
the device at all after performing the factory reset.
