• 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.
• When wet, remove the battery without turning on your device. Dry
your 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.
Do not use or store your device in dusty, dirty areas
Dust can cause your device to malfunction.
Do not store your device on slopes
If your device falls, it can be damaged.
Do not store your device in hot or cold areas. Use your device
at -20 °C to 50 °C
• Your device can explode if left inside a closed vehicle, as the inside
temperature can reach up to 80 °C.
Ensure access to emergency services
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
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
0.732 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.

This marking on the battery, manual or packaging indicates
that the batteries in this product should not be disposed of
with other household waste at the end of their working life.
Where marked, the chemical symbols Hg, Cd or Pb indicate that the
battery contains mercury, cadmium or lead above the reference levels
in EC Directive 2006/66. If batteries are not properly disposed of, these
substances can cause harm to human health or the environment.
To protect natural resources and to promote material reuse, please
separate batteries from other types of waste and recycle them through
your local, free battery return system.

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.
When cleaning your device:
• Wipe your device or charger with a towel or a rubber.
• Clean the terminals of the battery with a cotton ball or a towel.
• Do not use chemicals or detergents.
Do not use the device if the screen is cracked or broken
Broken glass or acrylic could cause injury to your hands and face. Take
the device to a Samsung Service Centre to have it repaired.
Do not use the device for anything other than its intended use
Avoid disturbing others when using the device in public
Do not allow children to use your device
Your device is not a toy. Do not allow children to play with it as they
could hurt themselves and others, damage the device, or make calls
that increase your charges.
Install mobile devices and equipment with caution
Allow only qualified personnel to service your device
Do not paint your device
Paint can clog moving parts and prevent proper operation. If you are
allergic to the paint or metal parts of the device, stop using the device
and consult your physician.
