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
0.611 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.

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
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.
