Comply with the following precautions to prevent danger or legal actions and ensure peak performance from your mobile phone.
Handle and dispose of batteries and chargers
with care
Turn off the phone in potentially explosive
environments
• Use only Samsung-approved batteries and chargers
specifically designed for your phone.
Incompatible batteries and chargers can cause serious
injuries or damage to your phone.
• Never dispose of batteries or phones in a fire. Follow
all local regulations when disposing used batteries or
phones.
• Never place batteries or phones 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.
Do not use your phone at refueling points (service
stations) or near fuels or chemicals. Turn off your phone
whenever directed by warning signs or instructions.
Your phone could cause explosions or fire in and
around fuel or chemical storage, transfer areas and
blasting areas. Do not store or carry flammable liquids,
gases, or explosive materials in the same compartment
as the phone, its parts, or accessories.
Avoid interference with pacemakers
Maintain a minimum of 15 cm (6 inches) between mobile
phones 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 phone is interfering
with a pacemaker or other medical device, turn off the
phone immediately and contact the manufacturer of the
pacemaker or medical device for guidance.
Reduce the risk of repetitive motion injuries
When sending text messages or playing games on
your phone, hold the phone with a relaxed grip, press
the keys lightly, use special features that reduce the
number of keys you have to press (such as templates
and predictive text), and take frequent breaks.
Do not use your device during a thunderstorm
Safety precautions
Drive safely at all times
Avoid using your phone while driving and obey all
regulations that restrict the use of mobile phones while
driving. Use hands-free accessories to increase your
safety when possible.
Follow all safety warnings and regulations
Comply with any regulations that restrict the use of a
mobile phone in a certain area.
Use only Samsung-approved accessories
Using incompatible accessories may damage your
phone or cause injury.
Turn off the phone near medical equipment
Your device may malfunction and your risk of electric
shock is increased.
Your phone can interfere with medical equipment in
hospitals or health care facilities. Follow all regulations,
posted warnings, and directions from medical
personnel.
Handle SIM cards and memory cards with care

Turn off the phone or disable the wireless
functions when in an aircraft
Your phone can cause interference with aircraft
equipment. Follow all airline regulations and turn off
your phone or switch to a mode that disables the
wireless functions when directed by airline personnel.
Protect batteries and chargers from damage
• Avoid exposing batteries to very cold or very hot
temperatures (below 0° C/32° F or above 45° C/
113° F). Extreme temperatures can reduce the
charging capacity and life of your 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.
Handle your phone carefully and sensibly
• Do not allow your phone to get wet—liquids can cause
serious damage. Do not handle your phone with wet
hands. Water damage to your phone can void your
manufacturer's warranty.
• Avoid using or storing your phone in dusty, dirty areas
to prevent damage to moving parts.
• Your phone is a complex electronic device—protect
it from impacts and rough handling to avoid serious
damage.
• Do not paint your phone, as paint can clog moving
parts and prevent proper operation.
• Avoid using the phone’s camera flash or light close to
the eyes of children or animals.
• Your phone and memory cards may be damaged
by exposure to magnetic fields. Do not use carrying
cases or accessories with magnetic closures or allow
your phone to come in contact with magnetic fields for
extended periods of time.
Avoid interference with other electronic devices
Your phone emits radio frequency (RF) signals that
may interfere with unshielded or improperly shielded
electronic equipment, such as pacemakers, hearing
aids, medical devices, and other electronic devices in
homes or vehicles. Consult the manufacturers of your
electronic devices to solve any interference problems
you experience.

Important usage information
Use your phone in the normal position
Avoid contact with your phone's internal antenna.
Internal antenna
• Do not remove a card while the phone is transferring
or accessing information, as this could result in loss of
data and/or damage to the card or phone.
• Protect cards from strong shocks, static electricity, and
electrical noise from other devices.
• Frequent writing and erasing will shorten the life span
of memory cards.
• Do not touch gold-colored contacts or terminals with
your fingers or metal objects. If dirty, wipe the card with
a soft cloth.
Ensure access to emergency services
Allow only qualified personnel to service your
phone
Allowing non-qualified personnel to service your phone
may result in damage to your phone and will void your
warranty.
Ensure maximum battery and charger life
• Avoid charging batteries for more than a week, as
overcharging may shorten battery life.
• Over time, unused batteries will discharge and must
be recharged before use.
• Disconnect chargers from power sources when not
in use.
• Use batteries only for their intended purpose.
Emergency calls from your phone may not be possible in
some areas or circumstances. Before traveling in remote
or areas without signal coverage, plan an alternate
method of contacting emergency services personnel.
Your phone 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
phones that exceed a maximum exposure level (known
as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR) of 2.0 watts
per kilogram.
During testing, the maximum SAR recorded for this
model was 0.734 watts per kilogram. In normal use, the
actual SAR is likely to be much lower, as the phone 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
phone reduces your overall exposure to RF energy.
For more information about the SAR and related EU
standards, visit the Samsung mobile phone website.
