Safety precautions
To prevent injury to yourself and others or damage to your device, read all of
the following information before using your device.
Warning: Prevent electric shock, fire, and
explosion
Do not use damaged power cords or plugs, or loose electrical
sockets
Do not touch the power cord with wet hands, or disconnect the
charger by pulling on the cord
Do not bend or damage the power cord
Do not use your device while charging or touch your device with
wet hands
Do not short-circuit the charger or the battery
Do not drop or cause an impact to the charger or the battery
Do not charge the battery with chargers that are not approved by
the manufacturer
Do not use your device during a thunderstorm
Your device may malfunction and your risk of electric shock is increased.
Do not handle a damaged or leaking Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) battery
For safe disposal of your Li-Ion batteries, contact your nearest authorised
service centre.
Handle and dispose of batteries and chargers with care
• Use only Samsung-approved batteries and chargers specifically designed for
your device. Incompatible batteries and chargers can cause serious injuries
or damage to your device.
• Never dispose of batteries or devices in a fire. Follow all local regulations
when disposing of used batteries or devices.
Safety precautions
121
• Never place batteries or devices on or in heating devices, such as microwave
ovens, stoves, or radiators. Batteries may explode when overheated.
• Never crush or puncture the battery. Avoid exposing the battery to high
external pressure, which can lead to an internal short circuit and overheating.
Protect the device, batteries, and chargers from damage
• Avoid exposing your device and batteries to very cold or very hot
temperatures.
• Extreme temperatures can cause the deformation of the device and reduce
the charging capacity and life of your device and batteries.
• Prevent batteries from contacting metal objects, as this can create a
connection between the + and – terminals of your batteries and lead to
temporary or permanent battery damage.
• Never use a damaged charger or battery.
Caution: Follow all safety warnings and
regulations when using your device in restricted
areas
Turn off your device where prohibited
Comply with all regulations that restrict the use of a mobile device in a
particular area.
Do not use your device near other electronic devices
Most electronic devices use radio frequency signals. Your device may interfere
with other electronic devices.
Do not use your device near a pacemaker
• Avoid using your device within a 15 cm range of a pacemaker if possible, as
your device can interfere with the pacemaker.
• If you must use your device, keep at least 15 cm away from the pacemaker.
• To minimise the possible interference with a pacemaker, use your device on
the opposite side of your body from the pacemaker.
Do not use your device in a hospital or near medical equipment
that can be interfered with by radio frequency
If you personally use any medical equipment, contact the manufacturer of the
equipment to ensure the safety of your equipment from radio frequency.
Safety precautions
122
If you are using a hearing aid, contact the manufacturer for
information about radio interference
Some hearing aids may be interfered with by the radio frequency of your
device. Contact the manufacturer to ensure the safety of your hearing aid.
Turn off the device in potentially explosive environments
• Turn off your device in potentially explosive environments instead of
removing the battery.
• Always comply with regulations, instructions and signs in potentially
explosive environments.
• Do not use your device at refuelling points (service stations), near fuels or
chemicals, and at blasting areas.
• Do not store or carry flammable liquids, gases, or explosive materials in the
same compartment as the device, its parts, or accessories.
Turn off your device when in an aircraft
Using your device in an aircraft is illegal. Your device may interfere with the
electronic navigation instruments of the aircraft.
Electronic devices in a motor vehicle may malfunction due to the
radio frequency of your device
Electronic devices in your car may malfunction due to radio frequency of your
device. Contact the manufacturer for more information.
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.
Safety precautions
123
• 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.
• 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.
Proper care and use of your mobile device
Keep your device dry
• Humidity and all types of liquids may damage device parts or electronic
circuits.
• Do not turn on your device if it is wet. If your device is already on, turn it off
and remove the battery immediately (if the device will not turn off or you
cannot remove the battery, leave it as-is). Then, dry the device with a towel
and take it to a service centre.
• Liquids will change the colour of the label that indicates water damage
inside the device. Water damage to your device can void your manufacturer’s
warranty.

while watching videos or playing Flash-based games for extended periods. If
you feel any discomfort, stop using the device immediately.
Reduce the risk of repetitive motion injuries
When you repetitively perform actions, such as pressing keys, drawing
characters on a touch screen with your fingers, or playing games, you may
experience occasional discomfort in your hands, neck, shoulders, or other
parts of your body. When using your device for extended periods, hold the
device with a relaxed grip, press the keys lightly, and take frequent breaks. If
you continue to have discomfort during or after such use, stop use and see a
physician.
Ensure maximum battery and charger life
• Avoid charging batteries for more than a week, as overcharging may shorten
battery life.

to prevent misuse of your personal information.
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 0.797 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.
