OF ANY EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTY,

FCC RF Exposure Information
Body-worn Operation
WARNING! Read this information before
operating the phone.
This device was tested for typical body-worn
operations with the back of the phone kept
1.5cm (0.59 inches) between the user’s body
and the back of the phone. To comply with
FCC RF exposure requirements, a minimum
separation distance of 1.5cm (0.59 inches)
must be maintained between the user’s
body and the back of the phone. Third-party
belt-clips, holsters, and similar accessories
containing metallic components should not
be used. Body-worn accessories that cannot
maintain 1.5cm (0.59 inches) separation
distance between the user’s body and the back
of the phone, and have not been tested for
typical body-worn operations may not comply
with FCC RF exposure limits and should be
avoided.
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 phone complies with
the FCC guidelines and these international
standards.
CAUTION
Use only the supplied and approved antenna.
Use of unauthorized antennas or modifications
could impair call quality, damage the phone,
void your warranty and/or result in violation of
FCC regulations. Do not use the phone with

Exposure to Radio Frequency
Signal
Your wireless handheld portable telephone is a
lowpower radio transmitter and receiver. When
it is ON, it receives and also sends out radio
frequency (RF) signals.
In August, 1996, the Federal Communications
Commissions (FCC) adopted RF exposure
guidelines with safety levels for handheld
wireless phones. Those guidelines are
consistent with the safety standards previously
set by both U.S. and international standards
bodies:
ICNIRP (1996)
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).

Safety Guidelines
Antenna Care
Driving
Use only the supplied or an approved
replacement antenna. Unauthorized antennas,
modifications, or attachments could damage
the phone and may violate FCC regulations.
Check the laws and regulations on the use of
wireless phones in the areas where you drive.
Always obey them. Also, if using your phone
while driving, please:
Phone Operation
NORMAL POSITION: Hold the phone as you
would any other telephone with the antenna
pointed up and over your shoulder.
Tips on Efficient Operation
For your phone to operate most efficiently:
ŹDo not touch the antenna unnecessarily
when the phone is in use. Contact with the
antenna affects call quality and may cause
the phone to operate at a higher power
level than otherwise needed.
88
ŹGive full attention to driving - driving safely
is your first responsibility;
ŹUse hands-free operation, if available;
ŹPull off the road and park before making
or answering a call if driving conditions
so require.
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 phone.
Safety Guidelines
Pacemakers
HAC
The Health Industry Manufacturers Association
recommends that a minimum separation of
15cm (6 inches) be maintained between a
handheld wireless phone 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.
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.
Persons with pacemakers:
ŹShould ALWAYS keep the phone more than
15cm (6 inches) from their pacemaker
when the phone is turned ON;
ŹShould not carry the phone in a breast
pocket.
ŹShould use the ear opposite the pacemaker
to minimize the potential for interference.
ŹIf you have any reason to suspect that
interference is taking place, turn your phone
OFF immediately.
Other Medical Devices
If you use any other personal medical device,
consult the manufacturer of your device to
determine if they are adequately shielded from
external RF energy. Your physician may be able
to assist you in obtaining this information.
Hearing Aids
Some digital wireless phones may interfere
with some hearing aids. In the event of such
interference, you may want to consult AT&T.
89
Safety Guidelines

Safety Guidelines
FDA Consumer Update
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration Centre
for Devices and Radiological Health Consumer
Update on Mobile Phones.
1. Do wireless phones pose a health
hazard?
The available scientific evidence does not
show that any health problems are associated
with using wireless phones. There is no proof,
however, that wireless phones are absolutely
safe. Wireless phones emit low levels of
radiofrequency energy (RF) in the microwave
range while being used. They also emit very
low levels of RF when in the 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.
2. What is the FDA’s role concerning the
safety of wireless phones?
Under the law, the FDA does not review
the safety of radiation-emitting consumer
products such as wireless phones before
they can be sold, as it does with new drugs
or medical devices. However, the agency
has authority to take action if wireless
phones are shown to emit radiofrequency
energy (RF) at a level that is hazardous to
the user. In such a case, the FDA could
require the manufacturers of wireless
phones to notify users of the health hazard
and to repair, replace, or recall the phones
so that the hazard no longer exists.
Although the existing scientific data do not
justify FDA regulatory actions, the FDA has
urged the wireless phone industry to take a
number of steps, including the following:
ŹSupport needed research into possible
biological effects of RF of the type
emitted by wireless phones;
95
Safety Guidelines
ŹDesign wireless phones in a way that
minimizes any RF exposure to the user
that is not necessary for device function;
and
ŹCooperate in providing users of
wireless phones with the best possible
information on possible effects of
wireless phone 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:
ŹNational Institute for Occupational Safety
and Health
ŹEnvironmental Protection Agency
ŹOccupational Safety and Health
Administration (Administración de la
seguridad y salud laborales)
ŹOccupational Safety and Health
Administration
ŹNational Telecommunications and
Information Administration
96
The National Institutes of Health participates
in some interagency working group activities,
as well.
The FDA shares regulatory responsibilities
for wireless phones with the Federal
Communications Commission (FCC). All
phones 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 phones.
The FCC also regulates the base stations
that the wireless phone networks rely
upon. While these base stations operate at
higher power than do the wireless phones
themselves, the RF exposures that people
get from these base stations are typically
thousands of times lower than those they
can get from wireless phones. Base stations
are thus not the subject of the safety
questions discussed in this document.
Safety Guidelines
3. What kinds of phones are the subject of
this update?
The term ‘wireless phone’ refers here to
handheld wireless phones with built-in
antennas, often called ‘cell’, ‘mobile’, or
‘PCS’ phones. These types of wireless
phones can expose the user to measurable
radiofrequency energy (RF) because of
the short distance between the phone 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 phone 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 phones’, 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 radiofrequency energy (RF)
exposures characteristic of wireless phones
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 predisposed to develop cancer in the absence
of RF exposure. Other studies exposed the
animals to RF for up to 22 hours per day.
97
Safety Guidelines
These conditions are not similar to the
conditions under which people use wireless
phones, so we don’t 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 phones 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 phone RF exposures. However,
none of the studies can answer questions
about long-term exposures, since the
average period of phone use in these
studies was around three years.
98
5. What research is needed to decide
whether RF exposure from wireless
phones poses a health risk?
A combination of laboratory studies and
epidemiological studies of people actually
using wireless phones 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 10 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 phones.
Many factors affect this measurement, such
as the angle at which the phone is held, or
which model of phone is used.
Safety Guidelines
6. What is the FDA doing to find out more
about the possible health effects of
wireless phone 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 radiofrequency energy (RF). The FDA
has been a leading participant in the
World Health Organization International
Electromagnetic 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 phone 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 phone users. The
CRADA will also include a broad assessment
of additional research needs in the context
of the latest research developments around
the world.
7. How can I find out how much radio
frequency energy exposure I can get by
using my wireless phone?
All phones sold in the United States must
comply with Federal Communications
Commission (FCC) guidelines that limit radio
frequency energy (RF) 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 telephones 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
99
Safety Guidelines
energy from the wireless phone and is set
well below levels known to have effects.
Manufacturers of wireless phones must
report the RF exposure level for each model
of phone to the FCC. The FCC website
(http://www.fcc.gov/) gives directions for
locating the FCC identification number on
your phone so you can find your phone’s RF
exposure level in the online listing.
8. What has the FDA done to measure the
radio frequency energy coming from
wireless phones?
The Institute of Electrical and Electronic
Engineers (IEEE) is developing a technical
standard for measuring the radio frequency
energy (RF) exposure from wireless
phones 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 phone users. The test method uses
a tissuesimulating model of the human
100
head. Standardized SAR test methodology is
expected to greatly improve the consistency
of measurements made at different
laboratories on the same phone. 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 phone complies with safety
guidelines.
9. What steps can I take to reduce my
exposure to radiofrequency energy
from my wireless phone?
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 radiofrequency
energy (RF). Since time is a key factor in
how much exposure a person receives,
reducing the amount of time spent using a
wireless phone will reduce RF exposure. If
you must conduct extended conversations
by wireless phone every day, you could
place more distance between your body and
the source of the RF, since the exposure
Safety Guidelines
level drops off dramatically with distance.
For example, you could use a headset and
carry the wireless phone away from your
body or use a wireless phone connected to
a remote antenna. Again, the scientific data
do not demonstrate that wireless phones
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 phone use.
10. What about children using wireless
phones?
The scientific evidence does not show
a danger to users of wireless phones,
including children and teenagers. If you
want to take steps to lower exposure to
radiofrequency energy (RF), the measures
described above would apply to children
and teenagers using wireless phones.
Reducing the time of wireless phone 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
phones 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
phone causes brain tumors or other ill
effects. Their recommendation to limit
wireless phone use by children was strictly
precautionary; it was not based on scientific
evidence that any health hazard exists.
11. What about wireless phone
interference with medical equipment?
Radio frequency energy (RF) from wireless
phones can interact with some electronic
devices. For this reason, the FDA helped
develop a detailed test method to measure
electromagnetic 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 phone EMI. The FDA has
tested hearing aids for interference from
101
Safety Guidelines
handheld wireless phones 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 phones
so that no interference occurs when a
person uses a ‘compatible’ phone 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 phones 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.

10 Driver Safety Tips
Your wireless phone gives you the powerful
ability to communicate by voice almost
anywhere, anytime. An important responsibility
accompanies the benefits of wireless phones,
one that every user must uphold.
When operating a car, driving is your first
responsibility.
When using your wireless phone behind the
wheel of a car, practice good common sense
and remember the following tips:
1. Get to know your wireless phone and its
features such as speed dial and redial.
Carefully read your instruction manual and
learn to take advantage of valuable features
most phones offer, including automatic
redial and memory. Also, work to memorize
the phone 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 phone
accessories are readily available today.
Whether you choose an installed mounted
device for your wireless phone or a speaker
phone accessory, take advantage of these
devices if available to you.
3. Position your wireless phone within easy
reach. Make sure you place your wireless
phone 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.
103
Safety Guidelines
5. Do not take notes or look up phone
numbers while driving. If you arereading 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. Don’t get caught in a dangerous
situation because you are reading or writing
and not paying attention to the road or
nearby vehicles.
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.
104
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 phone to call for help.
Your wireless phone is one of the greatest
tools you can own to protect yourself and
your family in dangerous situations — with
your phone at your side, help is only three
numbers away. Dial 911 or other local
emergency number in the case of fire,
traffic accident, road hazard or medical
emergency. Remember, it is a free call on
your wireless phone!
Safety Guidelines
9. Use your wireless phone to help others in
emergencies. Your wireless phone 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 other 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 phone 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.
Consumer Information on SAR
(Specific Absorption Rate)
This Model Phone Meets the
Government’s Requirements for Exposure
to Radio Waves.
Your wireless phone 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 (FCC)
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 more information, please call to 888-901SAFE, or visit our website www.ctia.org.
105
Safety Guidelines
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 1.6W/kg. * Tests for
SAR are conducted using standard operating
positions specified by the FCC with the phone
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 phone while
operating can be well below the maximum
value. Because the phone 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.
106
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 (e.g., at
the ear and worn on the body) as required
by the FCC for each model. The highest SAR
value for this model phone when tested for
use at the ear is 0.41 W/kg and when worn on
the body, as described in this user’s manual,
is 0.64 W/kg. (Body-worn measurements
differ among phones models, depending upon
available accessories and FCC requirements.)
While there may be differences between
SAR levels of various phones and at various
positions, they all meet the government
requirement for safe exposure.
Safety Guidelines
The FCC has granted an Equipment
Authorization for this model phone with all
reported SAR levels evaluated as in compliance
with the FCC RF emission guidelines. SAR
information on this model phone is on file with
the FCC and can be found under the Display
Grant section of http://www.fcc.gov/ after
searching on FCC ID ZNFA380.
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 phones under the Hearing
Aid Compatibility Act of 1988 (HAC Act) to
require digital wireless phones 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 phones 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 phones also vary in the
amount of interference they generate.
The wireless telephone industry has developed
a rating system for wireless phones, to assist
hearing device users to find phones that may
be compatible with their hearing devices. Not
all phones have been rated. Phones that are
rated have the rating on their box or a label
located on the box.
107
Safety Guidelines
The ratings are not guarantees. 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 phone
successfully. Trying out the phone with your
hearing device is the best way to evaluate it for
your personal needs.
M-Ratings: Phones rated M3 or M4 meet FCC
requirements and are likely to generate less
interference to hearing devices than phones
that are not labeled. M4 is the better/higher of
the two ratings.
T-Ratings: Phones rated T3 or T4 meet FCC
requirements and are likely to generate less
interference to hearing devices than phones
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 phone 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.
108
In the above example, if a hearing aid meets
the M2 level rating and the wireless phone
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 phone. “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.
When you’re talking on a cell phone, it’s
recommended that you turn the BT (Bluetooth)
mode off for HAC.
