• 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 center.
• Liquids will change the color 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 may explode if left inside a closed vehicle, as the inside
temperature can reach up to 80 °C.
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.
For more information about the SAR and related EU standards, visit
the Samsung website.
• Never place batteries or devices on or in heating devices, such as
microwave ovens, stoves, or radiators. Batteries may explode when
• Never crush or puncture the battery. Avoid exposing the battery to
high external pressure, which can lead to an internal short circuit and
Do not touch your device and the power cord with wet hands
Protect the device, batteries, and chargers from damage
Do not bend or damage the power cord
• Avoid exposing your device and batteries to very cold or very hot
• 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.
Do not use your device while charging and do not disconnect

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.
• Place your device within 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.
Do not use the device if the screen is cracked or broken
• Excessive exposure to loud sounds can cause hearing
• Exposure to loud sounds while driving may distract
your attention and cause an accident.
• Always turn the volume down before plugging the
earphones into an audio source and use only the
minimum volume setting necessary to hear your
conversation or music.
Use manufacturer-approved batteries, chargers, accessories
and supplies
Do not bite or suck on the device or the battery
Ensure maximum battery and charger life

your device. Contact the manufacturer to ensure the safety of your
hearing aid.
Do not use your device near other electronic devices
Do not store your device near magnetic fields
