information
Comply with the following precautions to avoid
dangerous or illegal situations and ensure peak
performance of your mobile phone.
Safety warnings
Keep your phone away from small
children and pets
Keep your phone and all accessories out of the
reach of small children or animals. Small parts may
cause choking or serious injury if swallowed.
Protect your hearing
Listening to a headset at high volumes can

S5503.book Page 2 Tuesday, February 15, 2011 1:11 PM
Install mobile phones and equipment
with caution
safety and usage information
Ensure that any mobile phones or related equipment
installed in your vehicle are securely mounted. Avoid
placing your phone and accessories near or in an air
bag deployment area. Improperly installed wireless
equipment can cause serious injury when air bags
inflate rapidly.
Handle and dispose of batteries and
chargers with care
• Use only Samsung-approved batteries and
chargers specifically designed for your phone.
Incompatible batteries and chargers can cause
serious injuries or damage to your phone.
• Never dispose of batteries or phones in a fire.
Follow all local regulations when disposing of
used batteries or phones.
2
• Never place batteries or phones on or in heating
devices, such as microwave ovens, stoves, or
radiators. Batteries may explode when
overheated.
• Never crush or puncture the battery. Avoid
exposing the battery to high external pressure,
which can lead to an internal short circuit and
overheating.
Avoid interference with pacemakers
Maintain a minimum of 15 cm (6 inches) between
mobile phones and pacemakers to avoid potential
interference, as recommended by manufacturers
and 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.
S5503.book Page 3 Tuesday, February 15, 2011 1:11 PM
Do not use the phone if the screen is
cracked or broken
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.
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 and usage information

cause serious damage and will change the colour
•
5
safety and usage information
• Avoid exposing batteries to very cold or very hot
temperatures (below 0° C/32° F or above 45° C/
113° F). Extreme temperatures can reduce the
charging capacity and life of your 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.
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.
S5503.book Page 6 Tuesday, February 15, 2011 1:11 PM
Avoid interference with other electronic
devices
safety and usage information
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 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.
6
S5503.book Page 7 Tuesday, February 15, 2011 1:11 PM
• Disconnect chargers from power sources when
not in use.
• Use batteries only for their intended purpose.
• 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.
• Frequent writing and erasing will shorten the life
span of memory cards.
• Do not touch gold-coloured contacts or terminals
with your fingers or metal objects. If dirty, wipe the
card with a soft cloth.
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.
7
safety and usage information
Handle SIM cards and memory cards
with care
Ensure access to emergency services
S5503.book Page 8 Tuesday, February 15, 2011 1:11 PM
safety and usage information
During testing, the maximum SAR recorded for this
model was 0.747 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 at the back of this
manual demonstrates your phone’s 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.
