Handle SIM cards and memory cards with care
SAR information
Correct disposal of this product
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 watts per
kilogram of body tissue.
During testing, the maximum SAR recorded for this
model was 0.633 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 at the back 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.
