Comply with all safety warnings and
regulations regarding mobile device usage
while operating a vehicle
While driving, safely operating the vehicle is your first responsibility.
Never use your mobile device while driving, if it is prohibited by law. For
your safety and the safety of others, practice good common sense and
remember the following tips:
• Use a hands-free device.
• Get to know your device and its convenience features, such as speed
dial and redial. These features help you reduce the time needed to
place or receive calls on your mobile device.
• Position your device within easy reach. Be able to access your wireless
device without removing your eyes from the road. If you receive an
incoming call at an inconvenient time, let your voice mail answer it
for you.
• Let the person you are speaking with know you are driving. Suspend
calls in heavy traffic or hazardous weather conditions. Rain, sleet, snow,
ice, and heavy traffic can be hazardous.
• Do not take notes or look up phone numbers. Jotting down a “to do”
list or flipping through your address book takes attention away from
your primary responsibility of driving safely.
• Dial sensibly and assess the traffic. Place calls when you are not moving
or before pulling into traffic. Try to plan calls when your car will be
stationary. If you need to make a call, dial only a few numbers, check
the road and your mirrors, then continue.
• Do not engage in stressful or emotional conversations that may be
distracting. Make people you are talking with aware you are driving
and suspend conversations that have the potential to divert your
attention from the road.
Safety precautions
117
• Use your device to call for help. Dial a local emergency number in the
case of fire, traffic accident, or medical emergencies.
• Use your device to help others in emergencies. If you see an auto
accident, a crime in progress, or a serious emergency where lives are in
danger, call a local emergency number.
• Call roadside assistance or a special, non-emergency assistance
number when necessary. 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 another special, non-emergency number.

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
0.688 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.
