Guidelines for Safe and Efficient Use
Please read this information before
using your mobile phone.
These instructions are intended for
your safety. Please follow these
guidelines. If the product has been
subject to any of the conditions listed
bellow or you have any doubt of the proper function
make sure to have the product checked by certified
service partner before charging or using it. Failure
to do so might lead to risk for product malfunction
or even a potential hazard to your health.
Recommendations for safe use of
product (mobile phone, battery,
charger and other accessories)
• Always treat your product with care and keep it in a
clean and dust-free place.
• Warning! May explode if disposed of in fire.
• Do not expose your product to liquid or moisture or
• Do not expose your product to
extreme high or low temperatures. Do
not expose the battery to
temperatures above +60°C (+140°F).
• Do not expose your product to open
flames or lit tobacco products.
• Do not drop, throw or try to bend your product.
• Do not paint your product.
• Do not attempt to disassemble or
modify your product. Only Sony
Ericsson authorised personnel should
perform service.
• Do not use your product near medical
equipment without requesting
• Do not use your product when in, or around
aircraft, or areas posted “turn off two-way radio”.
Important information
• Do not use your product in an area
where a potentially explosive
atmosphere exists.
• Do not place your product or install
wireless equipment in the area above
your car’s air bag.
Power supply (Charger)
Connect the AC power adapter only to designated
power sources as marked on the product. Make
sure the cord is positioned so that it will not be
subjected to damage or stress. To reduce risk of
electric shock, unplug the unit from any power
source before attempting to clean it. The AC power
adapter must not be used outdoors or in damp
areas. Never alter the cord or plug. If the plug will
not fit into the outlet, have a proper outlet installed
by a qualified electrician.
Use only Sony Ericsson branded original chargers
intended for use with your mobile phone. Other
chargers may not be designed to the same safety
and performance standards.
We recommend that you fully charge the battery
before you use your mobile phone for the first time.
A new battery or one that has not been used for a
long time could have reduced capacity the first few
times it is used. The battery should only be charged
in temperatures between +5°C (+41°F) and +45°C
Use only Sony Ericsson branded original batteries
intended for use with your mobile phone. Using
other batteries and chargers could be dangerous.
The talk and standby times depend on several
different conditions such as signal strength,
operating temperature, application usage patterns,
features selected and voice or data transmissions
when using the mobile phone.
Turn off your mobile phone before removing the
battery. Do not allow the battery to be put into the
mouth. Battery electrolytes may be toxic if
swallowed. Do not let the metal contacts on the
battery touch another metal object. This could
short-circuit and damage the battery. Use the
battery for the intended purpose only.
Personal medical devices
Mobile phones may affect the operation of cardiac
pacemakers and other implanted equipment.
Please avoid placing the mobile phone over the
pacemaker, e.g. in your breast pocket. When using
the mobile phone, place it at the ear opposite the
pacemaker. If a minimum distance of 15 cm (6
inches) is kept between the mobile phone and the
pacemaker, the risk of interference is limited. If you
have any reason to suspect that interference is
taking place, immediately turn off your mobile
phone. Contact your cardiologist for more
For other medical devices, please consult your
physician and the manufacturer of the device.
Please check if local laws and regulations restrict
the use of mobile phones while driving or require
drivers to use handsfree solutions. We recommend
that you use only Sony Ericsson handsfree
solutions intended for use with your product.
Please note that because of possible interference
to electronic equipment, some vehicle
manufacturers forbid the use of mobile phones in
their vehicles unless a handsfree kit with an
external antenna supports the installation.
Always give full attention to driving and pull off the
road and park before making or answering a call if
driving conditions so require.
Emergency calls
Mobile phones operate using radio signals, which
cannot guarantee connection under all conditions.
Therefore you should never rely solely upon any
mobile phone for essential communications (e.g.
medical emergencies).
Emergency calls may not be possible in all areas,
on all cellular networks, or when certain network
services and/or mobile phone features are in use.
Check with your local service provider.
This phone contains a built in antenna. Use of
antenna devices not marketed by Sony Ericsson
specifically for this model could damage your
mobile phone, reduce performance, and produce
SAR levels above the established limits (see below).
Efficient use
Hold your mobile phone as you would any other
phone. Do not cover the top of the phone when in
use, as this affects call quality and may cause the
phone to operate at a higher power level than
needed, thus shortening talk and standby times.
Radio frequency (RF) exposure and
Your mobile phone is a low-power radio transmitter
and receiver. When it is turned on, it emits low
levels of radio frequency energy (also known as
radio waves or radio frequency fields).
Important information
Governments around the world have adopted
comprehensive international safety guidelines,
developed by scientific organizations, e.g. ICNIRP
(International Commission on Non-Ionizing
Radiation Protection) and IEEE (The Institute of
Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc.), through
periodic and thorough evaluation of scientific
studies. These guidelines establish permitted levels
of radio wave exposure for the general population.
The levels include a safety margin designed to
assure the safety of all persons, regardless of age
and health, and to account for any variations in
Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) is the unit of
measurement for the amount of radio frequency
energy absorbed by the body when using a mobile
phone. The SAR value is determined at the highest
certified power level in laboratory conditions, but
the actual SAR level of the mobile phone while
operating can be well below this value. This is
because the mobile phone is designed to use the
minimum power required to reach the network.
Variations in SAR below the radio frequency
exposure guidelines do not mean that there are
variations in safety. While there may be differences
in SAR levels among mobile phones, all Sony
Ericsson mobile phone models are designed to
meet radio frequency exposure guidelines.
For phones sold in the U.S., before a phone model
is available for sale to the public, it must be tested
and certified to the FCC that it does not exceed the
limit established by the government-adopted
requirement for safe exposure. The tests are
performed in positions and locations (that is, at the
ear and worn on the body) as required by the FCC
for each model. For body worn operation, this
phone has been tested and meets FCC RF
exposure guidelines when the handset is
positioned a minimum of 15 mm from the body
without any metal parts in the vicinity of the phone
or when used with the original Sony Ericsson body
worn accessory intended for this phone. Use of
Important information
other accessories may not ensure compliance with
FCC RF exposure guidelines.
A separate leaflet with SAR information for this
mobile phone model is included with the material
that comes with this mobile phone. This information
can also be found, together with more information
on radio frequency exposure and SAR, on:

terminal with your Sony Ericsson mobile phone

Important information
accident, software or hardware modification or
adjustment, acts of God or damage resulting from
A rechargeable battery can be charged and
discharged hundreds of times. However, it will
eventually wear out – this is not a defect. When the
talk-time or standby time is noticeably shorter, it is
time to replace your battery. Sony Ericsson
recommends that you use only batteries and
chargers approved by Sony Ericsson.
Minor variations in display brightness and color
may occur between phones. There may be tiny
bright or dark dots on the display. These are called
defective pixels and occur when individual dots
have malfunctioned and can not be adjusted. Two
defective pixels are deemed acceptable.
Minor variations in camera image appearance may
occur between phones. This is nothing uncommon
and is not regarded as a defective camera module.
Since the cellular system on which the Product is to
operate is provided by a carrier independent from
Sony Ericsson, Sony Ericsson will not be
responsible for the operation, availability, coverage,
services or range of that system.
This warranty does not cover Product failures
caused by installations, modifications, or repair or
opening of the Product performed by a non-Sony
Ericsson authorised person.
The warranty does not cover Product failures which
have been caused by use of accessories or other
peripheral devices which are not Sony Ericsson
branded original accessories intended for use with
the Product.
Tampering with any of the seals on the Product will
void the warranty.
Some countries/states do not allow the exclusion
or limitation of incidental or consequential
damages, or limitation of the duration of implied
warranties, so the preceding limitations or
exclusions may not apply to you.
The warranty provided does not affect the
consumer's statutory rights under applicable
legislation in force, nor the consumer’s rights
against the dealer arising from their sales /
purchase contract.
