Product Authentication program
Dear Customers,
To protect all LG customers from counterfeit and grey market products and make sure
that you receive official warranty service, LG is now running a product authentication
program. To make sure your handset is a genuine product of LG, ONLY one SMS
containing the IMEI No. of your purchased handset will be automatically sent to LG on
the date of purchase.
Once your phone is authenticated, you will receive the message ‘Your handset is a
genuine LG product.’
The customer shall bear the cost of one SMS for the product authentication program.
In return, you will receive one additional month of warranty for free. One additional
month of warranty covers only mobile phone, not batteries and accessories.
The IMEI No. sent to LG guarantees your handset to be free from manufacturing
defects during the warranty period from the date of purchase without proof of
purchase or warranty card.

Guidelines for safe and efficient use
Please read these simple guidelines. Not following these guidelines may be dangerous
or illegal.
Exposure to radio frequency energy
Radio wave exposure and Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) information.
This mobile phone model LG-E612 has been designed to comply with applicable safety
requirements for exposure to radio waves. These requirements are based on scientific
guidelines that include safety margins designed to assure the safety of all persons,
regardless of age and health.
• The radio wave exposure guidelines employ a unit of measurement known as the
Specific Absorption Rate (SAR). Tests for SAR are conducted using standardised
methods with the phone transmitting at its highest certified power level in all used
frequency bands.
• While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various LG phone models,
they are all designed to meet the relevant guidelines for exposure to radio waves.
• The SAR limit recommended by the International Commission on Non-Ionizing
Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) is 2 W/kg averaged over 10g of tissue.
• The highest SAR value for this model phone tested for use at the ear is 0.904 W/kg
(10g) and when worn on the body is 0.639 W/Kg (10g).
• This device meets RF exposure guidelines when used either in the normal use
position against the ear or when positioned at least 1.5 cm away from the body.
When a carry case, belt clip or holder is used for body-worn operation, it should not
contain metal and should position the product at least 1.5 cm away from your body. In
order to transmit data files or messages, this device requires a quality connection to
the network. In some cases, transmission of data files or messages may be delayed
until such a connection is available. Ensure the above separation distance instructions
are followed until the transmission is completed.

Guidelines for safe and efficient use
Product care and maintenance
WARNING
Only use batteries, chargers and accessories approved for use with this
particular phone model. The use of any other types may invalidate any
approval or warranty applying to the phone and may be dangerous.
Do not disassemble this unit. Take it to a qualified service technician when repair
work is required.
• Repairs under warranty, at LG's discretion, may include replacement parts or boards
that are either new or reconditioned, provided that they have functionality equal to
that of the parts being replaced.
• Keep away from electrical appliances such as TVs, radios and personal computers.
• The unit should be kept away from heat sources such as radiators or cookers.
• Do not drop.
• Do not subject this unit to mechanical vibration or shock.
• Switch off the phone in any area where you are required to by special regulations.
For example, do not use your phone in hospitals as it may affect sensitive medical
equipment.
• Do not handle the phone with wet hands while it is being charged. It may cause an
electric shock and can seriously damage your phone.
• Do not charge a handset near flammable material as the handset can become hot
and create a fire hazard.
• Use a dry cloth to clean the exterior of the unit (do not use solvents such as benzene,
thinner or alcohol).
• Do not charge the phone when it is on soft furnishings.
• The phone should be charged in a well ventilated area.
• Do not subject this unit to excessive smoke or dust.
•
6
Do not keep the phone next to credit cards or transport tickets; it can affect the
information on the magnetic strips.
• Do not tap the screen with a sharp object as it may damage the phone.
• Do not expose the phone to liquid or moisture.
• Use accessories like earphones cautiously. Do not touch the antenna unnecessarily.
• Do not use, touch or attempt to remove or fix broken, chipped or cracked glass.
Damage to the glass display due to abuse or misuse is not covered under the
warranty.
• Your phone is an electronic device that generates heat during normal operation.
Extremely prolonged, direct skin contact in the absence of adequate ventilation may
result in discomfort or minor burns. Therefore, use care when handling your phone
during or immediately after operation.
• If your phone gets wet, immediately unplug it to dry off completely. Do not attempt
to accelerate the drying process with an external heating source,such as an oven,
microwave or hair dryer.
• The liquid in your wet phone, changes the color of the product label inside your
phone. Damage to your device as a result of exposure to liquid is not covered under
your warranty.

Guidelines for safe and efficient use
Road safety
Check the laws and regulations on the use of mobile phones in the area when you
drive.
• Do not use a hand-held phone while driving.
• Give full attention to driving.
• Pull off the road and park before making or answering a call if driving conditions so
require.
• RF energy may affect some electronic systems in your vehicle such as car stereos
and safety equipment.
• When your vehicle is equipped with an air bag, do not obstruct with installed or
portable wireless equipment. It can cause the air bag to fail or cause serious injury
due to improper performance.
• If you are listening to music whilst out and about, please ensure that the volume is
at a reasonable level so that you are aware of your surroundings. This is of particular
importance when near roads.
Avoid damage to your hearing
To prevent possible hearing damage, do not listen at high volume
levels for long periods.
Damage to your hearing can occur if you are exposed to loud sound for long periods of
time. We therefore recommend that you do not turn on or off the handset close to your
ear. We also recommend that music and call volumes are set to a reasonable level.
• When using headphones, turn the volume down if you cannot hear the people
speaking near you, or if the person sitting next to you can hear what you are listening
to.
8
NOTE: Excessive sound pressure from earphones and headphones can
cause hearing loss.
Glass Parts
Some parts of your mobile device are made of glass. This glass could break if your
mobile device is dropped on a hard surface or receives a substantial impact. If the glass
breaks, do not touch or attempt to remove it. Stop using your mobile device until the
glass is replaced by an authorised service provider.
Blasting area
Do not use the phone where blasting is in progress. Observe restrictions and follow any
regulations or rules.
Potentially explosive atmospheres
Do not use your phone at a refueling point.
Do not use near fuel or chemicals.
• Do not transport or store flammable gas, liquid or explosives in the same
compartment of your vehicle as your mobile phone or accessories.
•
•

Your Home screen
Touch screen tips
Here are some tips on how to navigate on your phone.
Tap or touch – A single finger tap selects items, links, shortcuts and letters on the onscreen keyboard.
Touch and hold – Touch and hold an item on the screen by touching it and not lifting
your finger until an action occurs. For example, to open a contact's available options,
touch and hold the contact in the Contacts list until the context menu opens.
Drag – Touch and hold an item for a moment and then, without lifting your finger, move
your finger on the screen until you reach the target position. You can drag items on the
Home screen to reposition them.
Swipe or slide – To swipe or slide, quickly move your finger across the surface of the
screen, without pausing when you first touch it (so you don’t drag an item instead). For
example, you can slide the screen up or down to scroll through a list, or browse through
the different Home screens by swiping from left to right (and vice versa).
Double-tap – Double-tap to zoom on a webpage or a map. For example, quickly
double-tap a section of a webpage to adjust that section to fit the width of the screen.
You can also double-tap to zoom in and out after taking a picture (using the Camera),
and when using Maps.
Pinch-to-Zoom – Use your index finger and thumb in a pinching or spreading motion
to zoom in or out when using the browser or Maps, or when browsing pictures.
Rotate the screen – From many applications and menus, the orientation of the screen
adjusts to the device's physical orientation.
NOTE:
• To select an item, touch the center of the icon.
• Do not press too hard; the Touch screen is sensitive enough to pick up a
light, yet firm touch.
• Use the tip of your finger to touch the option you want. Be careful not to
touch any other keys.
