serious injury when air bags inflate rapidly.
Allow only qualified personnel to service your device
Allowing unqualified personnel to service your device may result in
damage to your device and will void your manufacturer’s warranty.
Safety precautions
88
Handle SIM cards or memory cards with care
●●
Do not remove a card while the device is transferring or accessing
information, as this could result in loss of data and/or damage to the
card or device.
●● Protect cards from strong shocks, static electricity, and electrical noise
from other devices.
●● Do not touch gold-coloured contacts or terminals with your fingers or
metal objects. If dirty, wipe the card with a soft cloth.
Ensure access to emergency services
Emergency calls from your device may not be possible in some areas or
circumstances. Before travelling in remote or undeveloped areas, plan an
alternate method of contacting emergency services personnel.
Be sure to back up important data
Samsung is not responsible for data loss.
Do not distribute copyright-protected material
Do not distribute copyright-protected material that you have recorded
to others without the permission of the content owners. Doing this may
violate copyright laws. The manufacturer is not liable for any legal issues
caused by the user’s illegal use of copyrighted material.
Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) certification
information
Your device conforms to European Union (EU) standards that limit
human exposure to radio frequency (RF) energy emitted by radio and
telecommunications equipment. These standards prevent the sale of
mobile devices that exceed a maximum exposure level (known as the
Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR) of 2.0 W/kg.
During testing, the maximum SAR recorded for this model was
0.744 W/kg. In normal use, the actual SAR is likely to be much lower, as
the device has been designed to emit only the RF energy necessary to
transmit a signal to the nearest base station. By automatically emitting
lower levels when possible, your device reduces your overall exposure to
RF energy.
The Declaration of Conformity statement at the back of this manual
demonstrates your device’s compliance with the European Radio &
Terminal Telecommunications Equipment (R&TTE) directive. For more
information about the SAR and related EU standards, visit the Samsung
website.
