Turn on the HAC Setting
When the HAC setting is on, your phone sends the audio from your phone calls
to the telecoil rather than to the microphone of your hearing aid. You are likely
to hear calls much better because volume is increased and background noise
and feedback are diminished. The HAC setting improves only the calls you listen
to through the earpiece. It does not affect calls heard on the speakerphone or a
headset. It’s better to turn off the Bluetooth function when the HAC setting is on.
HAC requires extra battery power, so watch your battery consumption when it’s
turned on.
Caution: Do not turn on the HAC setting unless you use a hearing aid with a
telecoil. Using this setting without a hearing aid or with a hearing aid without a
telecoil may be harmful to your hearing.

Radio Frequency (RF) Energy
This model device meets the government’s requirements for exposure to radio
waves.
This device is designed and manufactured not to exceed the emission limits for
exposure to radio frequency (RF) energy set by the Federal Communications
Commission of the U.S. Government.
The exposure standard for wireless devices employs a unit of measurement
known as the Specific Absorption Rate or SAR. The SAR limit set by the FCC is
1.6W/kg.*
Tests for SAR are conducted using standard operating positions accepted by the
FCC with the device transmitting at its highest certified power level in all tested
frequency bands. Although the SAR is determined at the highest certified power
level, the actual SAR level of the device while operating can be well below the
maximum value. This is because the device is designed to operate at multiple
power levels so as to use only the power required to reach the network. In general,
the closer you are to a wireless base station antenna, the lower the power output.
The highest SAR value for the model phone as reported to the FCC when tested
for use at the ear is 0.622 W/kg and when worn on the body, as described in
this user guide, is 0.667 W/kg. (Body-worn measurements differ among phone
models, depending upon available accessories and FCC requirements.)
While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various devices and at
various positions, they all meet the government requirement.
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this model device with
all reported SAR levels evaluated as in compliance with the FCC RF exposure
guidelines. SAR information on this model device is on file with the FCC and can
be found under the Display Grant section of http://www.fcc.gov/oet/fccid after
searching on:

Radio Frequency (RF) Energy
• FCC ID: Q78-Z222.
• For body worn operation, this phone has been tested and meets the FCC
RF exposure guidelines for use with an accessory that contains no metal
and positions the handset a minimum of 1.5 cm from the body. Use of other
enhancements may not ensure compliance with FCC RF exposure guideline.
*In the United States and Canada, the SAR limit for mobile phones used by the public is 1.6 watts/kg (W/kg) averaged over
one gram of tissue. The standard incorporates a substantial margin of safety to give additional protection for the public and
to account for any variations in measurements.
