Small parts may cause choking or serious injury if swallowed. Protect your hearing Listening to a headset at high volumes can damage your hearing. Use only the minimum volume setting necessary to hear your conversation or music. Install mobile phones and equipment with caution Some contents in this manual may differ from your phone depending on the software of the phone or your service provider. www.samsungmobile.com Ensure that any mobile phones or related equipment installed in your vehicle are securely mounted. Avoid placing your phone and accessories near or in an air bag deployment area. Improperly installed wireless equipment can cause serious injury when air bags inflate rapidly. 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 of 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 While using 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 the phone if the screen is cracked or broken Broken glass or acrylic could cause injury to your hands and face. Bring the phone to a Samsung service centre to replace the screen. Damage caused by careless handling will void your manufacturer's warranty. 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 phone can interfere with medical equipment in hospitals or health care facilities. Follow all regulations, posted warnings, and directions from medical personnel. Printed in Korea Code No.:GH68-25190A English (VNZ). 09/2009. Rev. 1.0 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 disassemble your phone due to a risk of electric shock. • Do not allow your phone to get wet—liquids can cause serious damage and will change the colour of the label that indicates water damage inside the phone. 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. • If your phone has a camera flash or light, avoid using it close to the eyes of children or animals. • Your phone 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 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. Handle SIM cards and memory cards with care 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. • 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-coloured contacts or terminals with your fingers or metal objects. If dirty, wipe the card with a soft cloth. Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) certification information 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 0.761 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. The Declaration of Conformity of this manual demonstrates your phones compliance with the European Radio & Terminal Telecommunications Equipment (R&TTE) directive. For more information about the SAR and related EU standards, visit the Samsung mobile phone website. Ensure access to emergency services 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.
