Important safety precautions
Small children and your phone
Keep the phone and all its parts including accessories out of reach of small children.
Read these guidelines before using your wireless phone. Failure to comply with them
may be dangerous or illegal.
Drive safely at all times
Do not use a hand-held phone while driving; park the vehicle first.
Switching off when refuelling
Do not use the phone at a refuelling point (service station) or near fuels or chemicals.
Switching off in an aircraft
Wireless phones can cause interference. Using them in an aircraft is both illegal and
dangerous.
Water resistance
Your phone is not water-resistant. Keep it dry.
Sensible use
Use only in the normal position (held to the ear). Avoid unnecessary contact with the
antenna when the phone is switched on.
Emergency calls
Key in the emergency number for your present location, then press
the call until given permission to do so.
. Do not end
Accessories and batteries
Use only Samsung-approved batteries and accessories, such as headsets and PC data
cables. Use of any unauthorised accessories could damage your phone and may be
dangerous.
CAUTION
Risk of explosion if a battery is replaced by an incorrect type.
Dispose used batteries according to the instructions.
At very high volume, prolonged listening to a headset can damage
your hearing.
Qualified service
Only qualified service personnel may repair your phone.
SAR information
Your wireless phone is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed and
manufactured not to exceed the emission limits for exposure to radio frequency (RF)
energy set by the European Union (EU) Council. These limits are part of
comprehensive guidelines and establish permitted levels of RF energy for the general
population. The guidelines are based on the safety standards that were developed by
independent scientific organisations through periodic and through evaluation of
scientific studies.
The standards include a substantial safety margin designed to assure the safety of all
persons, regardless of age and health.
The exposure standard for wireless phones employs a unit of measurement known as
Specific Absorption Rate (SAR). The SAR limit set by the EU Council is 2.0W/kg. The
highest SAR value for this model phone was 0.476 W/kg.
