battery
For safe disposal of your Li-Ion batteries, contact your nearest authorized
service center.
Handle and dispose of batteries and chargers with care
• Use only Samsung-approved batteries and chargers specifically
designed for your device. Incompatible batteries and chargers can
cause serious injuries or damage to your device.
• Never dispose of batteries or devices in a fire. Follow all local
regulations when disposing of used batteries or devices.
• Never place batteries or devices 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.
Protect the device, batteries, and chargers from damage
• Avoid exposing your device and batteries to very cold or very hot
temperatures.
• 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.
Caution: Follow all safety warnings and
regulations when using your device in
restricted areas
Turn off your device where prohibited
Comply with all regulations that restrict the use of a mobile device in a
particular area.
Do not use your device near other electronic devices
Most electronic devices use radio frequency signals. Your device may
interfere with other electronic devices.
Do not use your device near a pacemaker
• Avoid using your device within a 15 cm range of a pacemaker if
possible, as your device can interfere with the pacemaker.
• If you must use your device, keep at least 15 cm away from the
pacemaker.
• To minimize the possible interference with a pacemaker, use your
device on the opposite side of your body from the pacemaker.
Do not use your device in a hospital or near medical
equipment that can be interfered with by radio frequency
If you personally use any medical equipment, contact the manufacturer
of the equipment to ensure the safety of your equipment from radio
frequency.
If you are using a hearing aid, contact the manufacturer for
information about radio interference
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.

removing the battery.
• Always comply with regulations, instructions and signs in potentially
explosive environments.
Safety precautions
69
• Do not use your device at refueling 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.
Turn off your device when in an aircraft
Using your device in an aircraft is illegal. Your device may interfere with
the electronic navigation instruments of the aircraft.
Electronic devices in a motor vehicle may malfunction due
to the radio frequency of your device
Electronic devices in your car may malfunction due to radio frequency of
your device. Contact the manufacturer for more information.
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:
70 Safety precautions
• 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 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

Avoid disturbing others when using the device in public
Do not allow children to use your device

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.
Samsung is not responsible for data loss.
Allow only qualified personnel to service your device
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
0.603 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.
Allowing non-qualified personnel to service your device may result in
damage to your device and will void your manufacturer’s warranty.
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.
