Federal Communications Commission 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.
Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could
void the user‘s authority to operate the equipment.
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device,
pursuant to part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection
against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can
radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions,
may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that
interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful
interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment
off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following
measures:
- Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
- Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
- Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is
connected.
- Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
The antenna(s) used for this transmitter must not be co-located or operating in conjunction with
any other antenna or transmitter.
The country code selection is for non-US model only and is not available to all US model. Per FCC
regulation, all WiFi product marketed in US must fixed to US operation channels only.
Hearing Aid Compatibility Information (HAC)
Your phone is compliant with the FCC Hearing Aid Compatibility requirements.
The FCC has adopted HAC rules for digital wireless phones. These rules require certain phone to
be tested and rated under the American National Standard Institute (ANSI) C63.19-2011 hearing
aid compatibility standards. The ANSI standard for hearing aid compatibility contains two types of
ratings:
M-Ratings: Rating for less radio frequency interference to enable acoustic coupling with hearing
aids.
119
T-Ratings: Rating for inductive coupling with hearing aids in telecoil mode.
Not all phones have been rated, a phone is considered hearing aid compatible under FCC rules if it
is rated M3 or M4 for acoustic coupling and T3 or T4 for inductive coupling. These ratings are given
on a scale from one to four, where four is the most compatible. Your phone meets the M3/T4 level
rating.
However, hearing aid compatibility ratings don’t guarantee that interference to your hearing aids
won’t happen. Results will vary, depending on the level of immunity of your hearing device and the
degree of your hearing loss. If your hearing device happens to be vulnerable to interference, you
may not be able to use a rated phone successfully. Trying out the phone with your hearing device is
the best way to evaluate it for your personal needs.
This phone has been tested and rated for use with hearing aids for some of the wireless
technologies that it uses. However, there may be some newer wireless technologies used in this
phone that have not been tested yet for use with hearing aids. It is important to try the different
features of this phone thoroughly and in different locations, using your hearing aid or cochlear
implant, to determine if you hear any interfering noise. Consult your service provider or the
manufacturer of this phone for information on hearing aid compatibility. If you have questions
about return or exchange policies, consult your service provider or phone retailer.
Hearing devices may also be rated. Your hearing device manufacturer or hearing health
professional may help you find this rating. For more information about FCC Hearing Aid
Compatibility, please go to http://www.fcc.gov/cgb/dro.

RF Exposure Information (SAR)
This device has been tested and meets applicable limits for Radio Frequency (RF) exposure.
Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) refers to the rate at which the body absorbs RF energy. SAR limits
are 1.6 Watts per kilogram (over a volume containing a mass of 1 gram of tissue) in countries that
follow the United States FCC limit and 2.0 W/kg (averaged over 10 grams of tissue) in countries
that follow the Council of the European Union limit. Tests for SAR are conducted using standard
operating positions with the device transmitting at its highest certified power level in all tested
frequency bands.
To reduce exposure to RF energy, use a hands-free accessory or other similar option to keep this
device away from your head and body. Carry this device at least 15 mm away from your body to
ensure exposure levels remain at or below the as-tested levels. Choose the belt clips, holsters,
or other similar body-worn accessories which do not contain metallic components to support
operation in this manner. Cases with metal parts may change the RF performance of the device,
including its compliance with RF exposure guidelines, in a manner that has not been tested or
certified, and use such accessories should be avoided.
The highest FCC SAR values for the device are as follows:
• 0.970 W/Kg (Head) @1g
• 1.190 W/Kg (Body) @1g
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this device with all reported SAR levels
evaluated as in compliance with the FCC RF exposure guidelines. SAR information on this device is
on file with the FCC and can be found under the Display Grant section of www.fcc.gov/oet/ea/fccid
after searching on FCC ID: MSQZ016D.
CE RF Exposure Compliance
This device meets the EU requirements (1999/519/EC) on the limitation of exposure of the general
public to electromagnetic fields by way of health protection.
For body-worn operation, this device has been tested and meets the ICNIRP guidelines and the
European Standard EN 62209-2, for use with dedicated accessories. SAR is measured with this
device at a separation of 0.5 cm to the body, while transmitting at the highest certified output
power level in all frequency bands of this device. Use of other accessories which contain metals
may not ensure compliance with ICNIRP exposure guidelines.
CE Mark Warning
122
CE marking for devices with wireless LAN/ Bluetooth
This equipment complies with the requirements of Directive 1999/5/EC of the European Parliament
and Commission from 9 March, 1999 governing Radio and Telecommunications Equipment and
mutual recognition of conformity.
The highest CE SAR values for this device are as follows:
•• 0.663 W/Kg (Head) @10g
•• 0.970 W/Kg (Body) @10g
