58 - Warnings and precautions
Operating environment
Important
For safety reasons, turn off all wireless or radio transmitting devices
when using your phone device under the following conditions. These
devices may include, but are not limited to: Wireless LAN (WLAN),
Bluetooth and/or cellular.
Remember to follow any special regulations in force in any area, and
always switch off your device when its use is prohibited or when it
may cause interference or danger. Use the device only in its normal
operating positions. To successfully transmit data files or messages,
this device requires a good quality connection to the network. In some
cases, transmission of data files or messages may be delayed until
such a connection is available. Ensure that the above separation
distance instructions are followed until the transmission is completed.
Parts of the device are magnetic. Metallic materials may be attracted
to the device, and persons with hearing aids should not hold the
device to the ear with the hearing aid. Do not place credit cards or
other magnetic storage media near the device, because information
stored on them may be erased.
Medical devices
Operation of any radio transmitting equipment, including wireless
phones, may interfere with the functionality of inadequately protected
medical devices. Consult a physician or the manufacturer of the
medical device to determine if they are adequately shielded from
external RF energy or if you have any questions. Switch off your
device in health care facilities when any regulations posted in these
areas instruct you to do so. Hospitals or health care facilities may be
using equipment that could be sensitive to external RF transmissions.
Pacemakers. Pacemaker manufacturers recommend that a minimum
separation of 15.3 cm (6") be maintained between wireless devices
and a pacemaker to avoid potential interference with the pacemaker.
These recommendations are consistent with the independent
research by and recommendations of Wireless Technology Research.
Persons with pacemakers should do the following:
Warnings and precautions - 59
• Always keep the device more than 15.3 cm (6") from the pacemaker.
• Not carry the device near your pacemaker when the device is
switched on. If you suspect interference, switch off your device, and
move it.
Hearing aids. Some digital wireless devices may interfere with some
hearing aids. If interference occurs, consult your service provider.
Vehicles
RF signals may affect improperly installed or inadequately shielded
electronic systems in motor vehicles such as electronic fuel injection
systems, electronic anti-skid (anti-lock) braking systems, electronic
speed control systems, and air bag systems. For more information,
check with the manufacturer, or its representative, of your vehicle or
any equipment that has been added. Only qualified personnel should
service the device, or install the device in a vehicle. Faulty installation
or service may be dangerous and may invalidate any warranty that
may apply to the device. Check regularly that all wireless 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 device, its parts, or enhancements. For vehicles
equipped with an air bag, remember that air bags inflate 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. If in-vehicle wireless equipment is improperly installed, and the
air bag inflates, serious injury could result. Using your device while
flying in aircraft is prohibited. Switch off your device before boarding
an aircraft. The use of wireless teledevices in an aircraft may be
dangerous to the operation of the aircraft, disrupt the wireless
telephone network, and may be illegal.
Potentially explosive environments
Switch off your device when in any area with a potentially explosive
atmosphere and obey all signs and instructions. Potentially explosive
atmospheres include areas where you would normally be advised to
turn off your vehicle engine. Sparks in such areas could cause an
explosion or fire resulting in bodily injury or even death. Switch off the
device at refueling points such as near gas pumps at service stations.
60 - Warnings and precautions
Observe restrictions on the use of radio equipment in fuel depots,
storage, and distribution areas; chemical plants; or where blasting
operations are in progress. Areas with a potentially explosive
atmospheres are often, but not always, clearly marked. They include
below deck on boats, chemical transfer or storage facilities, vehicles
using liquefied petroleum gas (such as propane or butane), and areas
where the air contains chemicals or particles such as grain, dust or
metal powders.
Follow any restrictions. Do not use the device where blasting is in
progress.
Emergency calls
Important
Wireless phones, including this device, operate using radio signals,
wireless networks, landline networks, and user-programmed functions.
Because of this, connections in all conditions cannot be guaranteed.
You should never rely solely on any wireless device for essential
communications like medical emergencies.
If certain features are in use, you may first need to turn those features
off before you can make an emergency call. Consult this guide or your
service provider for more information.
When making an emergency call, give all the necessary information
as accurately as possible. Your wireless device may be the only
means of communication at the scene of an accident. Do not end the
call until given permission to do so.
Taking care of your phone
1. DO take care not to scratch the screen of your phone. Keep the
screen clean. When working with your phone, use your finger or
fingernail. Never use an actual pen or pencil or other sharp object
on the screen surface.
2. DO NOT expose your phone to rain or moisture. Do not let water
enter the circuitry. In general, treat your phone as you would any
other small electronic device.
Warnings and precautions - 61
3. DO be careful not to drop your phone or subject it to any strong
impact. Do not place your phone in your back pocket.
4. DO NOT expose your phone to extreme temperatures. For example,
do not leave your phone on the dashboard of a car on a hot day or
when temperatures are below freezing point. Also, keep it away
from heaters and other sources of heat.
5. DO NOT use or store your phone in any location that is dusty, damp
or wet.
6. DO use a soft, damp cloth to clean your phone. If the surface of the
screen becomes soiled, clean it with a soft cloth moistened with
diluted window-cleaning solution.
7. DO NOT press down on the screen with force, otherwise you may
crack the screen.
