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.
Turn off the phone in potentially explosive
environments
Do not use your phone at refuelling 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 and
transfer areas or blasting areas. Do not store or carry
flammable liquids, gases, or explosive materials in
the same compartment as the phone, its parts, or
accessories.
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.
43
Do not use the device if the screen is cracked
or broken
Broken glass or acrylic could cause injury to your hand
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.
44
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.
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 the phone and batteries from damage
• Avoid exposing your phone and batteries to very
cold or very hot temperatures (below 0° C or above
45° C).
• Extreme temperatures can cause the deformation of
the phone and reduce the charging capacity and life
of your phone 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.
45
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.
46
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.

Allow only qualified personnel to service your
phone
Allowing unqualified personnel to service your phone
may result in damage to your phone and will void your
manufacturer’s warranty.
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 or memory cards with care
• 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.
• Do not touch gold-coloured contacts or terminals
with your fingers or metal objects. If dirty, wipe the
card with a soft cloth.
48
Ensure access to emergency services
Emergency calls from your phone 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.
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 W/kg.
During testing, the maximum SAR recorded for this
model was 0.938 W/kg. 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.
