45° C / 113° F). Extreme temperatures can reduce the
charging capacity and life of your batteries.

permanent battery damage.
• Never use a damaged charger or battery.

electric shock.
• Do not allow your phone to get wet—liquids can

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.

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.

• 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

• 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
a soft cloth.
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.
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
per kilogram.
During testing, the maximum SAR recorded for this
model was 0.672 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.
