Do not carry your device in your back pockets or around your
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
• Ensure that any mobile devices or related equipment installed in
your vehicle are securely mounted.
• Avoid placing your device and accessories near or in an air bag
deployment area. Improperly installed wireless equipment can cause
serious injury when air bags inflate rapidly.
You can be injured or damage the device if you fall.
Allow only qualified personnel to service your device

features that reduce the number of keys you have to press (such as
templates and predictive text), and take frequent breaks.
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.
• 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.
Electronic devices in your car may malfunction due to radio frequency of
your device. Contact the manufacturer for more information.
• Any changes or modifications to your device can void your
manufacturer’s warranty. For service, take your device to a Samsung
Service Centre.
• Do not disassemble or puncture the battery, as this can cause
explosion or fire.
Do not use a flash close to the eyes of people or animals
Ensure maximum battery and charger life
Using your device in an aircraft is illegal. Your device may interfere with
the electronic navigation instruments of the aircraft.

Using a flash close to the eyes may cause temporary loss of vision or
damage to the eyes.
Some hearing aids may be interfered with by the radio frequency of
your device. Contact the manufacturer to ensure the safety of your
hearing aid.
• Turn off your device in potentially explosive environments instead of
removing the battery.
• Always comply with regulations, instructions and signs in potentially
explosive environments.
• Do not use your device at refuelling points (service stations), near
fuels or chemicals, and at blasting areas.
• Do not store or carry flammable liquids, gases, or explosive materials
in the same compartment as the device, its parts, or accessories.
Use manufacturer-approved batteries, chargers, accessories
and supplies
• Your device may malfunction or the battery may discharge from
exposure to magnetic fields.
• Magnetic stripe cards, including credit cards, phone cards, passbooks,
and boarding passes, may be damaged by magnetic fields.

regulations regarding mobile device usage
while operating a vehicle
Paint and stickers can clog moving parts and prevent proper operation.
If you are allergic to paint or metal parts of the product, you may
experience itching, eczema, or swelling of the skin. When this happens,
stop using the product and consult your physician.
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
Handle SIM cards or memory cards with care
• Do not remove a card while the device is transferring or accessing
information, as this could result in loss of data and/or damage to the
card or device.
• Protect cards from strong shocks, static electricity, and electrical
noise from other devices.
• Do not touch gold-coloured contacts or terminals with your fingers or
metal objects. If dirty, wipe the card with a soft cloth.
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.
Be sure to back up important data

the device to a Samsung Service Centre to have it repaired.
Do not distribute copyright-protected material

may violate copyright laws. The manufacturer is not liable for any legal
issues caused by the user’s illegal use of copyrighted material.
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
0.592 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.
