Fingerprint recognition
Fingerprint recognition overview
You must register your fingerprint on your device first before using the
fingerprint recognition function.
You can use the fingerprint recognition function in the following cases:
• To unlock the screen.
• To view the locked content in the Gallery or QuickMemo+.
• Confirm a purchase by signing in to an app or identifying yourself with
your fingerprint.
• Your fingerprint can be used by the device for user identification. Very
similar fingerprints from different users may be recognized by the
fingerprint sensor as the same fingerprint. To ensure security, set the
screen lock using a Knock Code, pattern, PIN or Password.
Precautions for fingerprint recognition
Fingerprint recognition accuracy may decrease due to a number of
reasons. To maximize the recognition accuracy, check the following before
using the device.
• The device’s Power/Lock key has a fingerprint sensor. Ensure that the
Power/Lock key is not damaged by a metallic object, such as coin or
key.
• When water, dust or other foreign substance is on the Power/Lock key
or your finger, the fingerprint registration or recognition may not work.
Clean and dry your finger before using the fingerprint sensor.
• A fingerprint may not be recognized properly if the surface of your
finger has a scar or is not smooth due to being soaked in water.
• If you bend your finger or use the fingertip only, your fingerprint may
not be recognized. Make sure that your finger covers the entire surface
of the Power/Lock key.
Custom-designed Features
25
• Scan only one finger for each registration. Scanning more than one
finger may affect fingerprint registration and recognition.
• The device may generate static electricity if the surrounding air is dry.
If the surrounding air is dry, avoid scanning fingerprints, or touch a
metallic object, such as coin or key, to remove static electricity before
scanning fingerprints.
Registering fingerprints
You can register and save your fingerprint on the device to use fingerprint
identification.

2 Locate the Power/Lock key on the back of the device and gently put
your finger on it to register the fingerprint.
• Gently press the Power/Lock key so that the sensor can recognize your
fingerprint. If you press the Power/Lock key with an excessive force, the
screen lock function may start or the screen may turn off.
• Ensure that your fingertip covers the entire surface of the sensor on the
Power/Lock key.
Custom-designed Features

3 Follow the on-screen instructions.
• Repeat scanning the fingerprint by moving your finger little by little
until the fingerprint registers.
4 When the fingerprint registration is done, tap OK.

only one fingerprint and the corresponding finger is not in a good
condition, the fingerprint recognition may not work well. As the
preventive measure against this kind of situation, register multiple
fingerprints.

FCC RF Exposure Information
WARNING! Read this information before operating the device.
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 U.S. and international standards bodies.
The design of this device complies with the FCC guidelines and these international
standards.
For Your Safety
165
Body-worn Operation
This device was tested for typical use with the back of the device kept 0.39 inches
(1.0 cm) from the body. To comply with FCC RF exposure requirements, a minimum
separation distance of 0.39 inches (1.0 cm) must be maintained between
the user’s body and the back of the device. Any belt-clips, holsters, and similar
accessories containing metallic components may not be used. Avoid the use of
accessories that cannot maintain 0.39 inches (1.0 cm) distance between the user’s
body and the back of the device and have not been tested for compliance with FCC
RF exposure limits.
Consumer Information about Radio Frequency
Emissions
Your wireless device, which contains a radio transmitter and receiver, emits radio
frequency energy during use. The following consumer information addresses
commonly asked questions about the health effects of wireless devices.
Are wireless devices safe?
Scientific research on the subject of wireless devices and radio frequency (“RF”)
energy has been conducted worldwide for many years, and continues. In the United
States, the Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) and the Federal Communications
Commission (“FCC”) set policies and procedures for wireless devices. The FDA
issued a website publication on health issues related to cell phone usage where it
states, “The scientific community at large… believes that the weight of scientific
evidence does not show an association between exposure to radiofrequency (RF)
from cell phones and adverse health outcomes. Still the scientific community
does recommend conducting additional research to address gaps in knowledge.”
That research is being conducted around the world and FDA continues to
monitor developments in this field. You can access the joint FDA/FCC website at
http://www.fda.gov (under “c”in the subject index, select Cell Phones Research).
You can also contact the FDA toll-free at (888) 463-6332 or (888) INFO-FDA.
In June 2000, the FDA entered into a cooperative research and development
agreement through which additional scientific research is being conducted. The FCC
issued its own website publication stating that “there is no scientific evidence that
proves that wireless device usage can lead to cancer or a variety of other problems,
including headaches, dizziness or memory loss.” This publication is available at
http://www.fcc.gov/cgb/cellular.html or through the FCC at (888) 225-5322 or
(888) CALL-FCC.
For Your Safety
166
What does “SAR” mean?
In 1996, the FCC, working with the FDA, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency,
and other agencies, established RF exposure safety guidelines for wireless devices
in the United States. Before a wireless device model is available for sale to the
public, it must be tested by the manufacturer and certified to the FCC that it does
not exceed limits established by the FCC. One of these limits is expressed as a
Specific Absorption Rate, or “SAR.” SAR is a measure of the rate of absorption of RF
energy in the body. Tests for SAR are conducted with the device transmitting at its
highest power level in all tested frequency bands. Since 1996, the FCC has required
that the SAR of handheld wireless devices not exceed 1.6 watts per kilogram,
averaged over one gram of tissue.
Although the SAR is determined at the highest power level, the actual SAR value
of a wireless device while operating can be less than the reported SAR value. This
is because the SAR value may vary from call to call, depending on factors such as
proximity to a cell site, the proximity of the device to the body while in use, and the
use of hands-free devices. For more information about SARs, visit the FCC website
at https://www.fcc.gov/consumers/guides/specific-absorption-rate-sarcell-phones-what-it-means-you. You may also wish to contact the manufacturer
of your device.
Can I minimize my RF exposure?
If you are concerned about RF, there are several simple steps you can take to
minimize your RF exposure. You can, of course, reduce your talk time. You can place
more distance between your body and the source of the RF, as the exposure level
drops off dramatically with distance. The FDA/FCC website states that “hands-free
kits can be used with wireless devices for convenience and comfort. These systems
reduce the absorption of RF energy in the head because the device, which is the
source of the RF emissions, will not be placed against the head. On the other hand,
if the device is mounted against the waist or other part of the body during use,
then that part of the body will absorb more RF energy. Wireless devices marketed
in the U.S. are required to meet safety requirements regardless of whether they
are used against the head or against the body. Either configuration should result
in compliance with the safety limit.” Also, if you use your wireless device while in a
car, you can use a device with an antenna on the outside of the vehicle. You should
also read and follow your wireless device manufacturer’s instructions for the safe
operation of your device.
For Your Safety
167
Do wireless devices pose any special risks to children?
The FDA/FCC website states that “the scientific evidence does not show a
danger to users of wireless communication devices, including children.” The FDA/
FCC website further states that “some groups sponsored by other national
governments have advised that children be discouraged from using wireless devices
at all.” For example, the Stewart Report from the United Kingdom [“UK”] made
such a recommendation in December 2000. In this report a group of independent
experts noted that no evidence exists that using a cell phone causes brain tumors
or other ill effects. [The UK’s] recommendation to limit cell phone use by children
was strictly precautionary; it was not based on scientific evidence that any health
hazard exists. A copy of the UK’s leaflet is available at http://www.dh.gov.uk (search
“mobile”), or you can write to: NRPB, Chilton, Didcot, Oxon OX11 ORQ, United
Kingdom. Copies of the UK’s annual reports on mobile phones and RF are available
online at http://www.hpa.org.uk/radiation/ (search “mobile”). Parents who wish to
reduce their children’s RF exposure may choose to restrict their children’s wireless
device use.
Where can I get further information about RF emissions?

Consumer Information on SAR
(Specific Absorption Rate)
This model device meets the government’s requirements for exposure to radio
waves. Your wireless device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It 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. These limits are part of comprehensive guidelines and establish
permitted levels of RF energy for the general population. The guidelines are based
on standards that were developed by independent scientific organizations through
periodic and thorough evaluation of scientific studies. The standards include a
substantial safety margin designed to assure the safety of all persons, regardless of
age and health.
For Your Safety
169
The exposure standard for wireless mobile phones employs a unit of measurement
known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit set by the FCC is 1.6
W/kg. Tests for SAR are conducted using standard operating positions specified by
the FCC with the device transmitting at its highest certified power level in all tested
frequency bands. Although 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. Because the device is designed to operate at multiple power levels 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. Before a device 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 (e.g., at the ear
and worn on the body) as required by the FCC for each model.
The highest SAR values are:
• Head: 0.89 W/kg
• Body (Body-worn/Hotspot): 1.16 W/kg
(Body measurements differ among device models, depending upon available
accessories and FCC requirements).
While there may be differences between SAR levels of various devices and at
various positions, they all meet the government requirement for safe exposure.
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this model device with
all reported SAR levels evaluated as in compliance with the FCC RF emission
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 FCC ID ZNFV30A.
Additional information on Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) can be found
on the Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association (CTIA) website at
http://www.ctia.org/.
* 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.

FCC Hearing-Aid Compatibility (HAC)
Regulations for Wireless Devices
On July 10, 2003, the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Report and
Order in WT Docket 01-309 modified the exception of wireless devices under the
Hearing Aid Compatibility Act of 1988 (HAC Act) to require digital wireless devices
be compatible with hearing-aids. The intent of the HAC Act is to ensure reasonable
access to telecommunications services for persons with hearing disabilities.
While some wireless devices are used near some hearing devices (hearing aids
and cochlear implants), users may detect a buzzing, humming, or whining noise.
Some hearing devices are more immune than others to this interference noise, and
devices also vary in the amount of interference they generate.
The wireless telephone industry has developed a rating system for wireless devices,
to assist hearing device users to find devices that may be compatible with their
hearing devices. Not all devices have been rated. Devices that are rated have the
rating on their box or a label located on the box.
The ratings are not guaranteed. Results will vary depending on the user’s hearing
device and hearing loss. If your hearing device happens to be vulnerable to
interference, you may not be able to use a rated device successfully. Trying out the
device with your hearing device is the best way to evaluate it for your personal
needs.
M-Ratings: Devices rated M3 or M4 meet FCC requirements and are likely to
generate less interference to hearing devices than devices that are not labeled. M4
is the better/higher of the two ratings.
T-Ratings: Devices rated T3 or T4 meet FCC requirements and are likely to generate
less interference to hearing devices than devices that are not labeled. T4 is the
better/ higher of the two ratings.
Hearing devices may also be rated. Your hearing device manufacturer or hearing
health professional may help you find this rating. Higher ratings mean that the
hearing device is relatively immune to interference noise. The hearing aid and
wireless device rating values are then added together. A sum of 5 is considered
acceptable for normal use. A sum of 6 is considered for best use.
For Your Safety
171
In the above example, if a hearing aid meets the M2 level rating and the wireless
device meets the M3 level rating, the sum of the two values equal M5. This should
provide the hearing aid user with “normal usage” while using their hearing aid with
the particular wireless device. “Normal usage” in this context is defined as a signal
quality that’s acceptable for normal operation.
The M mark is intended to be synonymous with the U mark. The T mark is intended
to be synonymous with the UT mark. The M and T marks are recommended by
the Alliance for Telecommunications Industries Solutions (ATIS). The U and UT
marks are referenced in Section 20.19 of the FCC Rules. The HAC rating and
measurement procedure are described in the American National Standards
Institute (ANSI) C63.19 standard.
To ensure that the Hearing Aid Compatibility rating for your device is maintained,
secondary transmitters such as Bluetooth® and WLAN components must be
disabled during a call.

Caution! Avoid Potential Hearing Loss
Prolonged exposure to loud sounds (including music) is the most common
cause of preventable hearing loss. Some scientific research suggests that using
portable audio devices, such as portable music players and cellular telephones,
at high volume settings for long durations may lead to permanent noiseinduced
hearing loss. This includes the use of headphones (including headsets, earbuds and
Bluetooth or other wireless devices). Exposure to very loud sound has also been
associated in some studies with tinnitus (a ringing in the ear), hypersensitivity to
sound and distorted hearing. Individual susceptibility to noise-induced hearing loss
and other potential hearing problems varies.
For Your Safety
172
The amount of sound produced by a portable audio device varies depending on
the nature of the sound, the device, the device settings and the headphones. You
should follow some common sense recommendations when using any portable
audio device:
• Set the volume in a quiet environment and select the lowest volume at which
you can hear adequately.
• When using headphones, turn the volume down if you cannot hear the people
speaking near you or if the person sitting next to you can hear what you are
listening to.
• Do not turn the volume up to block out noisy surroundings. If you choose to
listen to your portable device in a noisy environment, use noise-cancelling
headphones to block out background environmental noise.
• Limit the amount of time you listen. As the volume increases, less time is
required before your hearing could be affected.
• Avoid using headphones after exposure to extremely loud noises, such as rock
concerts, that might cause temporary hearing loss. Temporary hearing loss
might cause unsafe volumes to sound normal.
• Do not listen at any volume that causes you discomfort. If you experience
ringing in your ears, hear muffled speech or experience any temporary hearing
difficulty after listening to your portable audio device, discontinue use and
consult your doctor.
TIA Safety Information
The following is the complete TIA Safety Information for wireless handheld devices.
Exposure to Radio Frequency Signal
Your wireless handheld portable device is a low power radio transmitter and
receiver. When ON, it receives and sends out Radio Frequency (RF) signals.
In August, 1996, the Federal Communications Commissions (FCC) adopted
RF exposure guidelines with safety levels for handheld wireless devices. Those
guidelines are consistent with the safety standards previously set by both U.S. and
international standards bodies:
ANSI C95.1 (1992) *
NCRP Report 86 (1986)
ICNIRP (1996)
For Your Safety
173
* American National Standards Institute; National Council on Radiation Protection
and Measurements; International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation
Protection.
Those standards were based on comprehensive and periodic evaluations of the
relevant scientific literature. For example, over 120 scientists, engineers, and
physicians from universities, government health agencies, and industry reviewed
the available body of research to develop the ANSI Standard (C95.1).
Electronic Devices
Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from RF signals. However, certain
electronic equipment may not be shielded against the RF signals from your wireless
device.
Pacemakers
The Health Industry Manufacturers Association recommends that a minimum
separation of six (6) inches be maintained between a handheld wireless
device 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 ALWAYS keep the device more than six (6) inches from their pacemaker
when the device is turned ON;
• Should not carry the device in a breast pocket;
• Should use the ear opposite the pacemaker to minimize the potential for
interference;
• Should turn the device OFF immediately if there is any reason to suspect that
interference is taking place.
Hearing Aids
Some digital wireless devices may interfere with some hearing aids. In the event
of such interference, you may want to consult your service provider (or call the
customer service line to discuss alternatives).
For Your Safety
174
Other Medical Devices
If you use any other personal medical device, consult the manufacturer of your
device to determine if it is adequately shielded from external RF energy. Your
physician may be able to assist you in obtaining this information.
Health Care Facilities
Turn your device OFF in health care facilities when any regulations posted in these
areas instruct you to do so. Hospitals or health care facilities may use equipment
that could be sensitive to external RF energy.
Vehicles
RF signals may affect improperly installed or inadequately shielded electronic
systems in motor vehicles. Check with the manufacturer or its representative
regarding your vehicle. You should also consult the manufacturer of any equipment
that has been added to your vehicle.
Posted Facilities
Turn your device OFF in any facility where posted notices so require.
Aircraft
FCC regulations prohibit using your device while in the air. Switch OFF your device
before boarding an aircraft.
Blasting Areas
To avoid interfering with blasting operations, turn your device OFF when in a
“blasting area” or in areas posted: “Turn off two-way radio.” Obey all signs and
instructions.
Potentially Explosive Atmosphere
Turn your device OFF when in any area with a potentially explosive atmosphere and
obey all signs and instructions. Sparks in such areas could cause an explosion or fire
resulting in bodily injury or even death.
Areas with a potentially explosive atmosphere are often, but not always marked
clearly. Potential areas may include: fueling areas (such as gasoline stations); below
deck on boats; fuel or chemical transfer or storage facilities; vehicles using liquefied
petroleum gas (such as propane or butane); areas where the air contains chemicals
or particles (such as grain, dust, or metal powders); and any other area where you
would normally be advised to turn off your vehicle engine.
For Your Safety
175
For Vehicles Equipped with an Air Bag
An air bag inflates with great force. DO NOT place objects, including either 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.
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 that are not expressly approved by the manufacturer for
compliance could void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.
Part 15.105 Statement
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.

FDA Consumer Update
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health
Consumer Update on Mobile Phones:
1. Do wireless devices pose a health hazard?
The available scientific evidence does not show that any health problems are
associated with using wireless devices. There is no proof, however, that wireless
devices are absolutely safe. Wireless devices emit low levels of Radio Frequency
(RF) energy in the microwave range while being used. They also emit very low
levels of RF when in standby mode. Whereas high levels of RF can produce health
effects (by heating tissue), exposure to low level RF that does not produce heating
effects causes no known adverse health effects. Many studies of low level RF
exposures have not found any biological effects. Some studies have suggested
that some biological effects may occur, but such findings have not been confirmed
by additional research. In some cases, other researchers have had difficulty in
reproducing those studies, or in determining the reasons for inconsistent results.
For Your Safety
180
2. What is the FDA’s role concerning the safety of wireless
devices?
Under the law, the FDA does not review the safety of radiation-emitting consumer
products such as wireless devices before they can be sold, as it does with new
drugs or medical devices. However, the agency has authority to take action if
wireless devices are shown to emit Radio Frequency (RF) energy at a level that is
hazardous to the user. In such a case, the FDA could require the manufacturers of
wireless devices to notify users of the health hazard and to repair, replace, or recall
the devices so that the hazard no longer exists.
Although the existing scientific data do not justify FDA regulatory actions, the FDA
has urged the wireless device industry to take a number of steps, including the
following:
• Support needed research into possible biological effects of RF of the type
emitted by wireless devices;
• Design wireless devices in a way that minimizes any RF exposure to the user
that is not necessary for device function; and
• Cooperate in providing users of wireless devices with the best possible
information on possible effects of wireless device use on human health.
The FDA belongs to an interagency working group of the federal agencies that
have responsibility for different aspects of RF safety to ensure coordinated efforts
at the federal level. The following agencies belong to this working group:
• National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health
• Environmental Protection Agency
• Occupational Safety and Health Administration
• National Telecommunications and Information Administration
The National Institutes of Health participates in some interagency working group
activities, as well.
The FDA shares regulatory responsibilities for wireless devices with the Federal
Communications Commission (FCC). All devices that are sold in the United States
must comply with FCC safety guidelines that limit RF exposure. The FCC relies on
the FDA and other health agencies for safety questions about wireless devices.
The FCC also regulates the base stations that the wireless device networks rely
upon. While these base stations operate at higher power than do the wireless
devices themselves, the RF exposures that people get from these base stations are
typically thousands of times lower than those they can get from wireless devices.
Base stations are thus not the subject of the safety questions discussed in this
document.
For Your Safety
181
3. What kinds of devices are the subject of this update?
The term “wireless device”refers here to handheld wireless devices with built-in
antennas, often called “cell,” “mobile,” or “PCS” devices. These types of wireless
devices can expose the user to measurable Radio Frequency (RF) energy because
of the short distance between the device and the user’s head.
These RF exposures are limited by FCC safety guidelines that were developed with
the advice of the FDA and other federal health and safety agencies. When the
device is located at greater distances from the user, the exposure to RF is drastically
lower because a person’s RF exposure decreases rapidly with increasing distance
from the source. The so-called “cordless devices,” which have a base unit connected
to the telephone wiring in a house, typically operate at far lower power levels, and
thus produce RF exposures far below the FCC safety limits.
4. What are the results of the research done already?
The research done thus far has produced conflicting results, and many studies have
suffered from flaws in their research methods. Animal experiments investigating
the effects of Radio Frequency (RF) energy exposures characteristic of wireless
devices have yielded conflicting results that often cannot be repeated in other
laboratories. A few animal studies, however, have suggested that low levels of RF
could accelerate the development of cancer in laboratory animals. However, many
of the studies that showed increased tumor development used animals that had
been genetically engineered or treated with cancer-causing chemicals so as to
be pre-disposed to develop cancer in the absence of RF exposure. Other studies
exposed the animals to RF for up to 22 hours per day. These conditions are not
similar to the conditions under which people use wireless devices, so we do not
know with certainty what the results of such studies mean for human health. Three
large epidemiology studies have been published since December 2000. Between
them, the studies investigated any possible association between the use of wireless
devices and primary brain cancer, glioma, meningioma, or acoustic neuroma, tumors
of the brain or salivary gland, leukemia, or other cancers. None of the studies
demonstrated the existence of any harmful health effects from wireless device RF
exposures. However, none of the studies can answer questions about long-term
exposures, since the average period of device use in these studies was around three
years.
For Your Safety
182
5. What research is needed to decide whether RF exposure
from wireless devices poses a health risk?
A combination of laboratory studies and epidemiological studies of people
actually using wireless devices would provide some of the data that are needed.
Lifetime animal exposure studies could be completed in a few years. However,
very large numbers of animals would be needed to provide reliable proof of a
cancer promoting effect if one exists. Epidemiological studies can provide data
that is directly applicable to human populations, but ten or more years follow-up
may be needed to provide answers about some health effects, such as cancer.
This is because the interval between the time of exposure to a cancer-causing
agent and the time tumors develop — if they do — may be many, many years. The
interpretation of epidemiological studies is hampered by difficulties in measuring
actual RF exposure during day-to-day use of wireless devices. Many factors affect
this measurement, such as the angle at which the device is held, or which model of
device is used.
6. What is the FDA doing to find out more about the possible
health effects of wireless device RF?
The FDA is working with the U.S. National Toxicology Program and with groups
of investigators around the world to ensure that high priority animal studies are
conducted to address important questions about the effects of exposure to Radio
Frequency (RF) energy.
The FDA has been a leading participant in the World Health Organization
International Electro Magnetic Fields (EMF) Project since its inception in 1996.
An influential result of this work has been the development of a detailed agenda
of research needs that has driven the establishment of new research programs
around the world. The project has also helped develop a series of public information
documents on EMF issues.
The FDA and the Cellular Telecommunications & Internet Association (CTIA)
have a formal Cooperative Research And Development Agreement (CRADA) to
do research on wireless device safety. The FDA provides the scientific oversight,
obtaining input from experts in government, industry, and academic organizations.
CTIA-funded research is conducted through contracts with independent
investigators. The initial research will include both laboratory studies and studies of
wireless device users. The CRADA will also include a broad assessment of additional
research needs in the context of the latest research developments around the
world.
For Your Safety
183
7. How can I find out how much Radio Frequency energy
exposure I can get by using my wireless device?
All devices sold in the United States must comply with Federal Communications
Commission (FCC) guidelines that limit Radio Frequency (RF) energy exposures.
The FCC established these guidelines in consultation with the FDA and the other
federal health and safety agencies. The FCC limit for RF exposure from wireless
devices is set at a Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) of 1.6 watts per kilogram (1.6
W/kg). The FCC limit is consistent with the safety standards developed by the
Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (IEEE) and the National Council on
Radiation Protection and Measurement. The exposure limit takes into consideration
the body’s ability to remove heat from the tissues that absorb energy from the
wireless device and is set well below levels known to have effects. Manufacturers
of wireless devices must report the RF exposure level for each model of device to
the FCC. The FCC website (http://www.fcc.gov/oet/rfsafety) gives directions for
locating the FCC identification number on your device so you can find your device’s
RF exposure level in the online listing.
8. What has the FDA done to measure the Radio Frequency
energy coming from wireless devices?
The Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) is developing a technical
standard for measuring the Radio Frequency (RF) energy exposure from wireless
devices and other wireless handsets with the participation and leadership of FDA
scientists and engineers. The standard, “Recommended Practice for Determining
the Spatial-Peak Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) in the Human Body Due to
Wireless Communications Devices: Experimental Techniques,” sets forth the first
consistent test methodology for measuring the rate at which RF is deposited in
the heads of wireless device users. The test method uses a tissue-simulating model
of the human head. Standardized SAR test methodology is expected to greatly
improve the consistency of measurements made at different laboratories on the
same device.
SAR is the measurement of the amount of energy absorbed in tissue, either by the
whole body or a small part of the body. It is measured in watts/kg (or milliwatts/g)
of matter. This measurement is used to determine whether a wireless device
complies with safety guidelines.
For Your Safety
184
9. What steps can I take to reduce my exposure to Radio
Frequency energy from my wireless device?
If there is a risk from these products — and at this point we do not know that
there is — it is probably very small. But if you are concerned about avoiding even
potential risks, you can take a few simple steps to minimize your exposure to Radio
Frequency (RF) energy. Since time is a key factor in how much exposure a person
receives, reducing the amount of time spent using a wireless device will reduce RF
exposure. If you must conduct extended conversations by wireless device every
day, you could place more distance between your body and the source of the RF,
since the exposure level drops off dramatically with distance. For example, you
could use a headset and carry the wireless device away from your body or use a
wireless device connected to a remote antenna. Again, the scientific data does not
demonstrate that wireless devices are harmful. But if you are concerned about the
RF exposure from these products, you can use measures like those described above
to reduce your RF exposure from wireless device use.
10. What about children using wireless devices?
The scientific evidence does not show a danger to users of wireless devices,
including children and teenagers. If you want to take steps to lower exposure
to Radio Frequency (RF) energy, the measures described above would apply to
children and teenagers using wireless devices. Reducing the time of wireless
device use and increasing the distance between the user and the RF source will
reduce RF exposure. Some groups sponsored by other national governments have
advised that children be discouraged from using wireless devices at all. For example,
the government in the United Kingdom distributed leaflets containing such a
recommendation in December 2000.
They noted that no evidence exists that using a wireless device causes brain tumors
or other ill effects. Their recommendation to limit wireless device use by children
was strictly precautionary; it was not based on scientific evidence that any health
hazard exists.

11. What about wireless device interference with medical
equipment?
Radio Frequency (RF) energy from wireless devices can interact with some
electronic devices. For this reason, the FDA helped develop a detailed test
method to measure Electro Magnetic Interference (EMI) of implanted cardiac
pacemakers and defibrillators from wireless telephones. This test method is now
part of a standard sponsored by the Association for the Advancement of Medical
Instrumentation (AAMI). The final draft, a joint effort by the FDA, medical device
manufacturers, and many other groups, was completed in late 2000. This standard
will allow manufacturers to ensure that cardiac pacemakers and defibrillators are
safe from wireless device EMI.
The FDA has tested hearing aids for interference from handheld wireless
devices and helped develop a voluntary standard sponsored by the Institute of
Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE). This standard specifies test methods
and performance requirements for hearing aids and wireless devices so that no
interference occurs when a person uses a “compatible” device and a “compatible”
hearing aid at the same time. This standard was approved by the IEEE in 2000.
The FDA continues to monitor the use of wireless devices for possible interactions
with other medical devices. Should harmful interference be found to occur, the FDA
will conduct testing to assess the interference and work to resolve the problem.

Driving
Check the laws and regulations on the use of wireless devices in the areas where
you drive and always obey them. Also, if using your device while driving, please
observe the following:
• Give full attention to driving -- driving safely is your first responsibility;
• Use hands-free operation, if available;
• Pull off the road and park before making or answering a call if driving conditions
or the law require it.
10 Driver Safety Tips
Your wireless device gives you the powerful ability to communicate by voice almost
anywhere, anytime. An important responsibility accompanies the benefits of
wireless devices, one that every user must uphold. When operating a car, driving is
your first responsibility. When using your wireless device behind the wheel of a car,
practice good common sense and remember the following tips:
1. Get to know your wireless device and its features, such as speed dial and redial.
Carefully read your instruction manual and learn to take advantage of valuable
features most devices offer, including automatic redial and memory. Also, work
to memorize the device keypad so you can use the speed dial function without
taking your attention off the road.
2. When available, use a hands-free device. A number of hands-free wireless device
accessories are readily available today. Whether you choose an installed mounted
device for your wireless device or a speaker phone accessory, take advantage of
these devices if available to you.
3. Make sure you place your wireless device within easy reach and where you can
reach it without removing your eyes from the road. If you get an incoming call at
an inconvenient time, if possible, let your voicemail answer it for you.
4. Suspend conversations during hazardous driving conditions or situations. Let the
person you are speaking with know you are driving; if necessary, suspend the call
in heavy traffic or hazardous weather conditions. Rain, sleet, snow, and ice can
be hazardous, but so is heavy traffic. As a driver, your first responsibility is to pay
attention to the road.
5. Don’t take notes or look up phone numbers while driving. If you are reading an
address book or business card, or writing a “to-do” list while driving a car, you are
not watching where you are going. It is common sense. Do not get caught in a
dangerous situation because you are reading or writing and not paying attention
to the road or nearby vehicles.
For Your Safety
187
6. Dial sensibly and assess the traffic; if possible, place calls when you are not
moving or before pulling into traffic. Try to plan your calls before you begin your
trip or attempt to coincide your calls with times you may be stopped at a stop
sign, red light, or otherwise stationary. But if you need to dial while driving, follow
this simple tip -- dial only a few numbers, check the road and your mirrors, then
continue.
7. Do not engage in stressful or emotional conversations that may be distracting.
Stressful or emotional conversations and driving do not mix; they are distracting
and even dangerous when you are behind the wheel of a car. Make people you
are talking with aware you are driving and if necessary, suspend conversations
which have the potential to divert your attention from the road.
8. Use your wireless device to call for help. Your wireless device is one of the
greatest tools you can own to protect yourself and your family in dangerous
situations -- with your device at your side, help is only three numbers away. Dial
911 or another local emergency number in the case of fire, traffic accident, road
hazard, or medical emergency. Remember, it’s a free call on your wireless device!
9. Use your wireless device to help others in emergencies. Your wireless device
provides you a perfect opportunity to be a “Good Samaritan” in your community.
If you see an auto accident, crime in progress or other serious emergency where
lives are in danger, call 911 or another local emergency number, as you would
want others to do for you.
10. Call roadside assistance or a special wireless non-emergency assistance
number when necessary. Certain situations you encounter while driving may
require attention, but are not urgent enough to merit a call for emergency
services. But you can still use your wireless device to lend a hand. If you see
a broken-down vehicle posing no serious hazard, a broken traffic signal, a
minor traffic accident where no one appears injured or a vehicle you know to
be stolen, call roadside assistance or other special non-emergency wireless
number.
The above tips are meant as general guidelines. Before deciding to use your mobile
device while operating a vehicle, it is recommended that you consult your applicable
jurisdiction’s local laws or other regulations regarding such use. Such laws or other
regulations may prohibit or otherwise restrict the manner in which a driver may use
his or her device while operating a vehicle.

PROCEDURE FOR RESOLVING DISPUTES:
ALL DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND LG ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING IN ANY
WAY TO THIS LIMITED WARRANTY OR THE PRODUCT SHALL BE RESOLVED
EXCLUSIVELY THROUGH BINDING ARBITRATION, AND NOT IN A COURT OF
GENERAL JURISDICTION. BINDING ARBITRATION MEANS THAT YOU AND LG ARE
EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL AND TO BRING OR PARTICIPATE IN
A CLASS ACTION.
Definitions. For the purposes of this section, references to “LG” mean LG
Electronics MobileComm U.S.A., Inc., its parents, subsidiaries and affiliates, and each
of their officers, directors, employees, agents, beneficiaries, predecessors in interest,
successors, assigns and suppliers; references to “dispute” or “claim” shall include any
dispute, claim or controversy of any kind whatsoever (whether based in contract,
tort, statute, regulation, ordinance, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal
or equitable theory) arising out of or relating in any way to the sale, condition or
performance of the product or this Limited Warranty.
Agreement to Binding Arbitration and Class Action Waiver. You and LG agree to
resolve any claims between us only by binding arbitration on an individual basis,
unless you opt out as provided below. Any dispute between you and LG shall not
be combined or consolidated with a dispute involving any other person’s or entity’s
product or claim. More specifically, without limitation of the foregoing, any dispute
between you and LG shall not under any circumstances proceed as part of a class
or representative action. Instead of arbitration, either party may bring an individual
action in small claims court, but that small claims court action may not be brought
on a class or representative basis.
Arbitration Rules and Procedures. To begin arbitration of a claim, either you or LG
must make a written demand for arbitration. The arbitration will be administered
by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) and will be conducted before a
single arbitrator under the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules that are in effect
at the time the arbitration is initiated (referred to as the “AAA Rules”) and under
the procedures set forth in this section. The AAA Rules are available online at
www.adr.org/consumer. Send a copy of your written demand for arbitration, as
well as a copy of this provision, to the AAA in the manner described in the AAA
Rules. You must also send a copy of your written demand to LG at LG Electronics,
USA, Inc. Attn: Legal Department- Arbitration 1000 Sylvan Avenue Englewood
Cliffs, NJ 07632. If there is a conflict between the AAA Rules and the rules set
forth in this section, the rules set forth in this section will govern. This arbitration
provision is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act. Judgment may be entered on
the arbitrator’s award in any court of competent jurisdiction. All issues are for the
arbitrator to decide, except that issues relating to the scope and enforceability of
LIMITED WARRANTY STATEMENT
193
the arbitration provision and to the arbitrability of the dispute are for the court to
decide. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this provision.
Governing Law: The law of the state of your residence shall govern this Limited
Warranty and any disputes between us except to the extent that such law is
preempted by or inconsistent with applicable federal law.
Fees/Costs. You do not need to pay any fee to begin an arbitration. Upon receipt
of your written demand for arbitration, LG will promptly pay all arbitration filing
fees to the AAA unless you seek more than $25,000 in damages, in which case
the payment of these fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. Except as otherwise
provided for herein, LG will pay all AAA filing, administration and arbitrator fees
for any arbitration initiated in accordance with the AAA Rules and this arbitration
provision. If you prevail in the arbitration, LG will pay your reasonable attorneys’
fees and expenses to the extent required by applicable law. If the arbitrator finds
either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the demand is frivolous
or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in
Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all arbitration fees will
be governed by the AAA Rules. In such a situation, you agree to reimburse LG for all
monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under
the AAA Rules. Except as otherwise provided for, LG waives any rights it may have
to seek attorneys’ fees and expenses from you if LG prevails in the arbitration.
Hearings and Location. If your claim is for $25,000 or less, you may choose to
have the arbitration conducted solely on the basis of (1) documents submitted to
the arbitrator, (2) through a telephonic hearing, or (3) by an in-person hearing as
established by the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds $25,000, the right to a hearing
will be determined by the AAA Rules. Any in-person arbitration hearings will be held
at a location within the federal judicial district in which you reside unless we both
agree to another location or we agree to a telephonic arbitration.
Opt Out. You may opt out of this dispute resolution procedure. If you opt out,
neither you nor LG can require the other to participate in an arbitration proceeding.
To opt out, you must send notice to LG no later than 30 calendar days from the
date of the first consumer purchaser’s purchase of the product by either: (i) sending
an e-mail to optout@lge.com, with the subject line: “Arbitration Opt Out” or (ii)
calling 1-800-980-2973. You must include in the opt out e-mail or provide by
telephone: (a) your name and address; (b) the date on which the product was
