SAFETY
TIA Safety Information
The following is the complete TIA Safety Information
for wireless handheld phones.
Exposure to Radio Frequency Signal
Your wireless handheld portable phone is a low power
radio transmitter and receiver. When it is ON, it
receives and also sends out Radio Frequency (RF)
signals.
SA F E T Y
In August, 1996, the Federal Communications
Commissions (FCC) adopted RF exposure guidelines
with safety levels for handheld wireless phones.
Those guidelines are consistent with the safety
standards previously set by both U.S. and
international standards bodies:
ANSI C95.1 (1992) *
NCRP Report 86 (1986)
ICNIRP (1996)
American National Standards Institute; National
Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements;
International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation
Protection
78
Those standards were based on comprehensive and
periodic evaluations of the relevant scientific
literature. For example, over 120 scientists, engineers
and physicians from universities, government health
agencies and industry reviewed the available body of
research to develop the ANSI Standard (C95.1).
The design of your phone complies with the FCC
guidelines (and those standards).
Antenna Care
Use only the supplied or an approved replacement
antenna. Unauthorized antennas, modifications or
attachments could damage the phone and may
violate FCC regulations.
Phone Operation
NORMAL POSITION: Hold the phone as you would
any other telephone with the antenna pointed up
and over your shoulder.
Tips on Efficient Operation
For your phone to operate most efficiently:
Do not touch the antenna unnecessarily when the
phone is in use. Contact with the antenna affects call

quality and may cause the phone to operate at a
higher power level than otherwise needed.
Driving
Check the laws and regulations on the use of wireless
phones in the areas where you drive and always obey
them. Also, if using your phone while driving, please
observe the following:
Pacemakers
The Health Industry Manufacturers Association
recommends that a minimum separation of six (6)
inches be maintained between a handheld wireless
phone and a pacemaker to avoid potential
interference with the pacemaker. These
recommendations are consistent with the
independent research by and recommendations of
Wireless Technology Research.
Give full attention to driving -- driving safely is
your first responsibility;
Use hands-free operation, if available;
Pull off the road and park before making or
answering a call if driving conditions or the law so
require.
Should ALWAYS keep the phone more than six (6)
inches from their pacemaker when the phone is
turned ON;
Should not carry the phone in a breast pocket;
Should use the ear opposite the pacemaker to
minimize the potential for interference;
Should turn the phone OFF immediately if there is
any reason to suspect that interference is taking
place.
Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from
RF signals. However, certain electronic equipment
may not be shielded against the RF signals from your
wireless phone.

Hearing Aids
Vehicles
Some digital wireless phones may interfere with some
hearing aids. In the event of such interference, you
may want to consult your service provider (or call the
customer service line to discuss alternatives.)
Optional for each phone manufacturer.
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.
Other Medical Devices
If you use any other personal medical device, 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.
SA F E T Y
80
Health Care Facilities
Turn your phone OFF in health care facilities when
any regulations posted in these areas instruct you to
do so. Hospitals or health care facilities may use
equipment that could be sensitive to external RF
energy.
Posted Facilities
Turn your phone OFF in any facility where posted
notices so require.
Aircraft
FCC regulations prohibit using your phone while in
the air. Switch OFF your phone before boarding an
aircraft.
Blasting Areas
To avoid interfering with blasting operations, turn
your phone OFF when in a “blasting area” or in areas
posted: “Turn off two-way radio”. Obey all signs and
instructions.

Potentially Explosive Atmosphere
Safety Information
Turn your phone OFF 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.
Please read and observe the following information for
safe and proper use of your phone and to prevent
damage. Also, keep the user guide in an accessible
place at all the times after reading it.
Caution! Violation of the instructions may cause
minor or serious damage to the product.
Charger and Adapter Safety
Battery Information and Care
Please dispose of your battery properly or take it
to your local wireless carrier for recycling.
The battery does not need to be fully discharged
before recharging.
Use only LG-approved chargers specific to your
phone model since they are designed to maximize
battery life.
Do not disassemble or short-circuit the battery.
Keep the battery’s metal contacts clean.
For Vehicles Equipped with an Air Bag
An air bag inflates with great force. DO NOT place
objects, including either installed or portable wireless
equipment, in the area over the air bag or in the air
bag deployment area. If in-vehicle wireless equipment
is improperly installed and the air bag inflates, serious
injury could result.
The charger and adapter are intended for indoor
use only.
SA F E T Y
Areas with a potentially explosive atmosphere are
often, but not always marked clearly. Potential areas
may include: fueling areas (such as gasoline stations);
below deck on boats; fuel or chemical transfer or
storage facilities; vehicles using liquefied petroleum
gas (such as propane or butane); areas where the air

acceptable performance. The battery can be
recharged several hundred times before
replacement.
Recharge the battery after long periods of non-use
to maximize battery life.
Battery life will vary due to usage patterns and
environmental conditions.
Use of extended backlighting, MiniBrowser, and
data connectivity kits affect battery life and
talk/standby times.
The self-protection function of the battery cuts
the power of the phone when its operation is in an
abnormal state. In this case, remove the battery
from the phone, reinstall it, and turn the phone
on.
Explosion, Shock, and Fire Hazards
Do not put your phone in a place subject to
excessive dust and keep the minimum required
distance between the power cord and heat
sources.
Unplug the power cord prior to cleaning your
phone, and clean the power plug pin when it is
dirty.
When using the power plug, ensure that it is firmly
connected. If it is not, it may cause excessive heat
or fire.
If you put your phone in a pocket or bag without
covering the receptacle of the phone (power plug
pin), metallic articles (such as a coin, paperclip or
pen) may short-circuit the phone. Always cover the
receptacle when not in use.
Do not short-circuit the battery. Metallic articles
such as a coin, paperclip or pen in your pocket or
bag may short-circuit the + and – terminals of the

SAFETY
FDA Consumer Update
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s
Center for Devices and Radiological Health
Consumer Update on Mobile Phones:
1. Do wireless phones pose a health hazard?
SA F E T Y
84
The available scientific evidence does not show that
any health problems are associated with using
wireless phones. There is no proof, however, that
wireless phones are absolutely safe. Wireless phones
emit low levels of Radio Frequency (RF) energy in the
microwave range while being used. They also emit
very low levels of RF when in the standby mode.
Whereas high levels of RF can produce health effects
(by heating tissue), exposure to low level RF that
does not produce heating effects causes no known
adverse health effects. Many studies of low level RF
exposures have not found any biological effects.
Some studies have suggested that some biological
effects may occur, but such findings have not been
confirmed by additional research. In some cases,
other researchers have had difficulty in reproducing
those studies or in determining the reasons for
inconsistent results.
2. What is the FDA's role concerning the safety of
wireless phones?
Under the law, the FDA does not review the safety of
radiation-emitting consumer products such as
wireless phones before they can be sold, as it does
with new drugs or medical devices. However, the
agency has authority to take action if wireless phones
are shown to emit Radio Frequency (RF) energy at a
level that is hazardous to the user. In such a case, the
FDA could require the manufacturers of wireless
phones to notify users of the health hazard and to
repair, replace or recall the phones so that the hazard
no longer exists.
Although the existing scientific data do not justify
FDA regulatory actions, the FDA has urged the
wireless phone industry to take a number of steps,
including the following:
Support needed research into possible biological
effects of RF of the type emitted by wireless
phones;
Design wireless phones in a way that minimizes any
RF exposure to the user that is not necessary for
device function;
RD6500.qxd
1/10/06
3:05 PM
Page 85
Cooperate in providing users of wireless phones
with the best possible information on possible
effects of wireless phone use on human health.
The FDA belongs to an interagency working group of
the federal agencies that have responsibility for
different aspects of RF safety to ensure coordinated
efforts at the federal level. The following agencies
belong to this working group:
National Institute for Occupational Safety and
Health
Environmental Protection Agency
Occupational Safety and Health Administration
National Telecommunications and Information
Administration
3. What kinds of phones are the subject of this
update?
The National Institutes of Health participates in
some interagency working group activities, as well.
The term “wireless phone” refers here to handheld
wireless phones with built-in antennas, often called
“cell”, “mobile” phones. These types of wireless
phones can expose the user to measurable Radio
Frequency (RF) energy because of the short distance
between the phone and the user’s head.
The FDA shares regulatory responsibilities for wireless
phones with the Federal Communications
Commission (FCC). All phones that are sold in the
United States must comply with FCC safety
guidelines that limit RF exposure. The FCC relies on
the FDA and other health agencies for safety
questions about wireless phones.
These RF exposures are limited by FCC safety
guidelines that were developed with the advice of the
FDA and other federal health and safety agencies.
When the phone is located at greater distances from
the user, the exposure to RF is drastically lower
because a person's RF exposure decreases rapidly
with increasing distance from the source.
SA F E T Y
The FCC also regulates the base stations that the
wireless phone networks rely upon. While these base
stations operate at higher power than do the wireless
phones themselves, the RF exposures that people get
from these base stations are typically thousands of
times lower than those they can get from wireless
phones. Base stations are thus not the subject of the
safety questions discussed in this document.

SAFETY
The so-called “cordless phones,” which have a base
unit connected to the telephone wiring in a house,
typically operate at far lower power levels and thus
produce RF exposures far below the FCC safety
limits.
4. What are the results of the research done
already?
SA F E T Y
86
The research done thus far has produced conflicting
results, and many studies have suffered from flaws in
their research methods. Animal experiments
investigating the effects of Radio Frequency (RF)
energy exposures characteristic of wireless phones
have yielded conflicting results that often cannot be
repeated in other laboratories. A few animal studies,
however, have suggested that low levels of RF could
accelerate the development of cancer in laboratory
animals. However, many of the studies that showed
increased tumor development used animals that had
been genetically engineered or treated with
cancer-causing chemicals so as to be pre-disposed to
develop cancer in the absence of RF exposure. Other
studies exposed the animals to RF for up to 22 hours
per day. These conditions are not similar to the
conditions under which people use wireless phones,
so we don’t know with certainty what the results of
such studies mean for human health. Three large
epidemiology studies have been published since
December 2000. Between them, the studies
investigated any possible association between the
use of wireless phones and primary brain cancer,
glioma, meningioma or acoustic neuroma, tumors of
the brain or salivary gland, leukemia or other cancers.
None of the studies demonstrated the existence of
any harmful health effects from wireless phone RF
exposures. However, none of the studies can answer
questions about long-term exposures, since the
average period of phone use in these studies was
around three years.

6. What is the FDA doing to find out more about
the possible health effects of wireless phone
RF?
A combination of laboratory studies and
epidemiological studies of people actually using
wireless phones would provide some of the data that
are needed. Lifetime animal exposure studies could
be completed in a few years. However, very large
numbers of animals would be needed to provide
reliable proof of a cancer promoting effect if one
exists. Epidemiological studies can provide data that
is directly applicable to human populations, but 10
or more years follow-up may be needed to provide
answers about some health effects, such as cancer.
This is because the interval between the time of
exposure to a cancer-causing agent and the time
tumors develop — if they do — may be many, many
years. The interpretation of epidemiological studies is
hampered by difficulties in measuring actual RF
exposure during day-to-day use of wireless phones.
Many factors affect this measurement, such as the
angle at which the phone is held, or which model of
phone is used.
The FDA is working with the U.S. National Toxicology
Program and with groups of investigators around the
world to ensure that high priority animal studies are
conducted to address important questions about the
effects of exposure to Radio Frequency (RF) energy.
The FDA has been a leading participant in the World
Health Organization International Electro Magnetic
Fields (EMF) Project since its inception in 1996. An
influential result of this work has been the
development of a detailed agenda of research needs
that has driven the establishment of new research
programs around the world. The project has also
helped develop a series of public information
documents on EMF issues.

5. What research is needed to decide whether RF
exposure from wireless phones poses a health
risk?
The FDA and the Cellular Telecommunications &
Internet Association (CTIA) have a formal
Cooperative Research and Development Agreement
(CRADA) to do research on wireless phone safety.
The FDA provides the scientific oversight, obtaining
input from experts in government, industry, and
87

academic organizations. CTIA-funded research is
conducted through contracts with independent
investigators. The initial research will include both
laboratory studies and studies of wireless phone
users. The CRADA will also include a broad
assessment of additional research needs in the
context of the latest research developments around
the world.
7. How can I find out how much Radio Frequency
energy exposure I can get by using my wireless
phone?
SA F E T Y
88
All phones sold in the United States must comply
with Federal Communications Commission (FCC)
guidelines that limit Radio Frequency (RF) energy
exposures. The FCC established these guidelines in
consultation with the FDA and the other federal
health and safety agencies. The FCC limit for RF
exposure from wireless telephones is set at a Specific
Absorption Rate (SAR) of 1.6 watts per kilogram
(1.6 W/kg). The FCC limit is consistent with the
safety standards developed by the Institute of
Electrical and Electronic Engineering (IEEE) and the
National Council on Radiation Protection and
Measurement. The exposure limit takes into
consideration the body’s ability to remove heat from
the tissues that absorb energy from the wireless
phone and is set well below levels known to have
effects. Manufacturers of wireless phones must report
the RF exposure level for each model of phone to the
FCC. The FCC website (http://www.fcc.gov/oet/
rfsafety) gives directions for locating the FCC
identification number on your phone so you can find
your phone’s RF exposure level in the online listing.
8. What has the FDA done to measure the Radio
Frequency energy coming from wireless
phones?
The Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers
(IEEE) is developing a technical standard for
measuring the Radio Frequency (RF) energy exposure
from wireless phones and other wireless handsets
with the participation and leadership of FDA
scientists and engineers. The standard,
“Recommended Practice for Determining the
Spatial-Peak Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) in the
Human Body Due to Wireless Communications
Devices: Experimental Techniques,” sets forth the first

consistent test methodology for measuring the rate
at which RF is deposited in the heads of wireless
phone users. The test method uses a tissuesimulating model of the human head. Standardized
SAR test methodology is expected to greatly improve
the consistency of measurements made at different
laboratories on the same phone. SAR is the
measurement of the amount of energy absorbed in
tissue, either by the whole body or a small part of
the body. It is measured in watts/kg (or milliwatts/g)
of matter. This measurement is used to determine
whether a wireless phone complies with safety
guidelines.
If there is a risk from these products — and at this
point we do not know that there is — it is probably
very small. But if you are concerned about avoiding
even potential risks, you can take a few simple steps
to minimize your exposure to Radio Frequency (RF)
energy. Since time is a key factor in how much
exposure a person receives, reducing the amount of
10. What about children using wireless phones?
The scientific evidence does not show a danger to
users of wireless phones, including children and
teenagers. If you want to take steps to lower
exposure to Radio Frequency (RF) energy, the
measures described above would apply to children
and teenagers using wireless phones. Reducing the
time of wireless phone use and increasing the
distance between the user and the RF source will
reduce RF exposure.
SA F E T Y
9. What steps can I take to reduce my exposure
to Radio Frequency energy from my wireless
phone?
time spent using a wireless phone will reduce RF
exposure. If you must conduct extended
conversations by wireless phone every day, you could
place more distance between your body and the
source of the RF, since the exposure level drops off
dramatically with distance. For example, you could
use a headset and carry the wireless phone away
from your body or use a wireless phone connected to
a remote antenna. Again, the scientific data do not
demonstrate that wireless phones are harmful. But if
you are concerned about the RF exposure from these
products, you can use measures like those described
above to reduce your RF exposure from wireless
phone use.

Some groups sponsored by other national
governments have advised that children be
discouraged from using wireless phones at all. For
example, the government in the United Kingdom
distributed leaflets containing such a
recommendation in December 2000. They noted
that no evidence exists that using a wireless phone
causes brain tumors or other ill effects. Their
recommendation to limit wireless phone use by
children was strictly precautionary; it was not based
on scientific evidence that any health hazard exists.

11. What about wireless phone interference with
medical equipment?
Radio Frequency (RF) energy from wireless phones
can interact with some electronic devices. For this
reason, the FDA helped develop a detailed test
method to measure Electro Magnetic Interference
(EMI) of implanted cardiac pacemakers and
defibrillators from wireless telephones. This test
method is now part of a standard sponsored by the
Association for the Advancement of Medical
Instrumentation (AAMI). The final draft, a joint effort
by the FDA, medical device manufacturers and many
other groups, was completed in late 2000. This
standard will allow manufacturers to ensure that
cardiac pacemakers and defibrillators are safe from
wireless phone EMI.
The FDA has tested hearing aids for interference from
handheld wireless phones and helped develop a
voluntary standard sponsored by the Institute of
Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE). This
standard specifies test methods and performance
requirements for hearing aids and wireless phones so
that no interference occurs when a person uses a
“compatible” phone and a “compatible” hearing aid
at the same time. This standard was approved by the
IEEE in 2000.
The FDA continues to monitor the use of wireless
phones for possible interactions with other medical
devices. Should harmful interference be found to
occur, the FDA will conduct testing to assess the
interference and work to resolve the problem.
