data settings. To use the optimal connection method, change the Wi-Fi and cellular

phone uses the Wi-Fi connection.

calculating your current location.
Some satellite positioning systems may require transferring small amounts of data
over the mobile network. If you want to avoid data costs, for example when
traveling, you can switch the mobile data connection off in your phone settings.
Wi-Fi positioning improves positioning accuracy when satellite signals are not
available, especially when you are indoors or between tall buildings. If you're in a

Potentially explosive environments
Switch your device off in potentially explosive environments, such as near gasoline
pumps. Sparks may cause an explosion or fire resulting in injury or death. Note
restrictions in areas with fuel; chemical plants; or where blasting operations are in
progress. Areas with a potentially explosive environment may not be clearly marked.
These usually are areas where you are advised to switch your engine off, below deck
on boats, chemical transfer or storage facilities, and where the air contains
chemicals or particles. Check with the manufacturers of vehicles using liquefied
petroleum gas (such as propane or butane) if this device can be safely used in their

Certification information (SAR)
This mobile device meets guidelines for exposure to radio waves.
Your mobile device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed not to exceed
the limits for exposure to radio waves (radio frequency electromagnetic fields),
recommended by international guidelines from the independent scientific
organization ICNIRP. These guidelines incorporate substantial safety margins that
are intended to assure the protection of all persons regardless of age and health.
The exposure guidelines are based on the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR), which is an
expression of the amount of radio frequency (RF) power deposited in the head or
body when the device is transmitting. The ICNIRP SAR limit for mobile devices is 2.0
W/kg averaged over 10 grams of tissue.
SAR tests are carried out with the device in standard operating positions,
transmitting at its highest certified power level, in all its frequency bands.
This device meets RF exposure guidelines when used against the head or when
positioned at least 5/8 inch (1.5 centimetres) away from the body. When a carry
case, belt clip or other form of device holder is used for body-worn operation, it
should not contain metal and should provide at least the above stated separation
distance from the body.
To send data or messages, a good connection to the network is needed. Sending
may be delayed until such a connection is available. Follow the separation distance
instructions until the sending is finished.

Nokia 6 User Guide
During general use, the SAR values are usually well below the values stated above.
This is because, for purposes of system efficiency and to minimise interference on
the network, the operating power of your mobile is automatically decreased when
full power is not needed for the call. The lower the power output, the lower the SAR
value.
Device models may have different versions and more than one value. Component
and design changes may occur over time and some changes could affect SAR values.
For more info, go to www.sar-tick.com. Note that mobile devices may be
transmitting even if you are not making a voice call.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has stated that current scientific information
does not indicate the need for any special precautions when using mobile devices. If
you are interested in reducing your exposure, they recommend you limit your usage
or use a hands-free kit to keep the device away from your head and body. For more
information and explanations and discussions on RF exposure, go to the WHO
website at www.who.int/peh-emf/en.
