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.
