Health and safety information
SAR certification information
This phone meets European Union (EU) requirements
concerning exposure to radio waves.
Your mobile phone is a radio transmitter and receiver. It
is designed and manufactured to not exceed the limits
for exposure to radio-frequency (RF) energy, as
recommended by the EU Council. These limits are part
of comprehensive guidelines and establish permitted
levels of RF energy for the general population. The
guidelines were developed by independent scientific
organisations through the periodic and thorough
evaluation of scientific studies. The limits include a
substantial safety margin designed to ensure the safety
of all persons, regardless of age and health.
The exposure standard for mobile phones employs a
unit of measurement known as Specific Absorption Rate
(SAR). The SAR limit recommended by the EU Council is
2.0 W/kg.1
The highest SAR value for this model phone was
0.581 W/kg.
SAR tests are conducted using standard operating
positions with the phone transmitting at its highest
certified power level in all tested frequency bands.
Although the SAR is determined at the highest certified
power level, the actual SAR level of the phone while
operating can be well below the maximum value. This is
because the phone is designed to operate at multiple
power levels so as to use only the power required to
reach the network. In general, the closer you are to a
base station, the lower the power output of the phone.
Before a new model phone is available for sale to the
public, compliance with the European R&TTE Directive
must be shown. This directive includes as one of its
essential requirements the protection of the health and
safety of the user and any other person.
1. The SAR limit for mobile phones used by the public is 2.0
watts/kilogram (W/kg) averaged over ten grams of body
tissue. The limit incorporates a substantial margin of safety to
give additional protection for the public and to account for any
variations in measurements. The SAR values may vary,
depending on national reporting requirements and the
network band.
Health and safety information
Precautions when using batteries
Never use a charger or battery that is damaged in
any way.
Use the battery only for its intended purpose.
If you use the phone near the network’s base
station, it uses less power. Talk and standby time
are greatly affected by the signal strength on the
cellular network and the parameters set by the
service provider.
Battery charging time depends on the remaining
battery charge, the type of battery, and the charger
used. The battery can be charged and discharged
hundreds of times, but it will gradually wear out.
When the operation time is noticeably shorter than
normal, it is time to buy a new battery.
If left unused, a fully charged battery will discharge
itself over time.
Use only Samsung-approved batteries, and
recharge your battery only with Samsung-approved
chargers. Disconnect the charger from the power
source when it is not in use. Do not leave the
battery connected to a charger for more than a
week, since overcharging may shorten its life.
Extreme temperatures will affect the charging
capacity of your battery: it may require cooling or
warming first.
Do not leave the battery in hot or cold places
because the capacity and lifetime of the battery will
be reduced. Try to keep the battery at room
temperature. A phone with a hot or cold battery
may not work temporarily, even when the battery is
fully charged. Li-ion batteries are particularly
affected by temperatures below 0° C (32° F).
Do not short-circuit the battery. Accidental shortcircuiting can occur when a metallic object like a
coin, clip or pen causes a direct connection between
the + and – terminals of the battery (metal strips on
the battery). For example, do not carry a spare
battery in a pocket or bag where the battery may
contact metal objects. Short-circuiting the terminals
may damage the battery or the object causing the
Dispose of used batteries in accordance with local
regulations. Always recycle. Do not dispose of
batteries in a fire.
Road safety
Your wireless phone gives you the powerful ability to
communicate by voice, almost anywhere, anytime. But
an important responsibility accompanies the benefits of
wireless phones, one that every user must uphold.
When you are driving a car, driving is your first
responsibility. When using your wireless phone while
driving, follow local regulations in the country or region
you are in.
Operating environment
Remember to follow any special regulations in force in
the area you are in, and always switch off your phone
whenever it is forbidden to use it, or when it may cause
interference or danger.
When connecting the phone or any accessory to
another device, read its user’s guide for detailed safety
instructions. Do not connect incompatible products.
As with other mobile radio transmitting equipment,
users are advised that for the satisfactory operation of
the equipment and for the safety of personnel, it is
recommended that the equipment should only be used
in the normal operating position (held to your ear with
the antenna pointing over your shoulder).
Electronic devices
Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from
radio frequency (RF) signals. However, certain
electronic equipment may not be shielded against the
RF signals from your wireless phone. Consult the
manufacturer to discuss alternatives.
Pacemaker manufacturers recommend that a minimum
distance of 15 cm (6 inches) be maintained between a
wireless phone and a pacemaker to avoid potential
interference with the pacemaker. These
recommendations are consistent with the independent
research and recommendations of Wireless Technology
Research. If you have any reason to suspect that
interference is taking place, switch off your phone
Health and safety information
Hearing aids
Posted facilities
Some digital wireless phones may interfere with some
hearing aids. In the event of such interference, you
may wish to consult your hearing aid manufacturer to
discuss alternatives.
Switch off your phone in any facility where posted
notices require you to do so.
Other medical devices
Switch off your phone when in any area with a
potentially explosive atmosphere, and obey all signs
and instructions. Sparks in such areas could cause an
explosion or fire resulting in bodily injury or even death.
Users are advised to switch off the phone while at a
refuelling point (service station). Users are reminded of
the need to observe restrictions on the use of radio
equipment in fuel depots (fuel storage and distribution
areas), chemical plants, or where blasting operations
are in progress.
Areas with a potentially explosive atmosphere are often
but not always clearly marked. They include the areas
below decks on boats, chemical transfer or storage
facilities, vehicles using liquefied petroleum gas, such
as propane or butane, areas where the air contains
chemicals or particles, such as grain, dust or metal
powders, and any other area where you would normally
be advised to turn off your vehicle engine.
If you use any other personal medical devices, consult
the manufacturer of your device to determine if it is
adequately shielded from external RF energy.
Your physician may be able to assist you in obtaining
this information.
Switch off your phone in health care facilities when
regulations posted in these areas instruct you to do so.
RF signals may affect improperly installed or
inadequately shielded electronic systems in motor
vehicles. Check with the manufacturer or its
representative regarding your vehicle.
You should also consult the manufacturer of any
equipment that has been added to your vehicle.
Potentially explosive environments
Emergency calls
Other important safety information
This phone, like any wireless phone, operates using
radio signals, wireless, and landline networks as well as
user-programmed functions, which cannot guarantee
connection in all conditions. Therefore, you should
never rely solely on any wireless phone for essential
communications like medical emergencies.
To make or receive calls, the phone must be switched
on and in a service area with adequate signal strength.
Emergency calls may not be possible on all wireless
phone networks or when certain network services and/
or phone features are in use. Check with local service
To make an emergency call:
1. Switch on the phone.
2. Key in the emergency number for your present
location. Emergency numbers vary by location.
3. Press [ ].
Certain features like Call Barring may need to be
deactivated before you can make an emergency call.

Only qualified personnel should service the phone or
install the phone in a vehicle. Faulty installation or
service may be dangerous and may invalidate any
warranty applicable to the device.
Check regularly that all wireless phone equipment in
your vehicle is mounted and operating properly.
Do not store or carry flammable liquids, gases, or
explosive materials in the same compartment as the
phone, its parts, or accessories.
For vehicles equipped with an air bag, remember
that an air bag inflates with great force. Do not
place objects, including installed or portable wireless
equipment, in the area over the air bag or in the air
bag deployment area. Improperly installed wireless
equipment could result in serious injury if the air
bag inflates.
Switch off your phone before boarding an aircraft. It
is dangerous and illegal to use wireless phones in an
aircraft because they can interfere with the
operation of the aircraft.
