chargers can cause serious injuries or
damage to your device.
• Never dispose of batteries in a fire. Follow
all local regulations when disposing used
• Never place batteries or phones on or in
heating devices, such as microwave
ovens, stoves, or radiators. Batteries may
explode when overheated.
Avoid interference with pacemakers
Maintain a minimum of 15 cm (6 inches)
between mobile devices and pacemakers to
avoid potential interference, as
recommended by manufacturers and the
independent research group, Wireless
Technology Research. If you have any
reason to suspect that your device is
interfering with a pacemaker or other medical
equipment, turn off the device immediately
and contact the manufacturer of the
pacemaker or medical equipment for

• Your device and memory cards may be
damaged by exposure to magnetic fields.
Do not use carrying cases or accessories
with magnetic closures or allow your
device to come in contact with magnetic
fields for extended periods of time.
Avoid interference with other
electronic equipment
Your device emits radio frequency (RF)
signals that may interfere with unshielded or
improperly shielded electronic equipment,
such as pacemakers, hearing aids, and
medical equipment in homes or vehicles.
Consult the manufacturers of your electronic
equipment to solve any interference
problems you experience.

Ensure access to emergency
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.
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 watts per kilogram of body
During testing, the maximum SAR recorded
for this model was 0.414 watts per kilogram.
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 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 mobile phone website.
