Comply with all safety warnings and regulations regarding mobile device usage while operating a vehicle While driving, safely operating the vehicle is your first responsibility. Never use your mobile device while driving, if it is prohibited by law. For your safety and the safety of others, practice good common sense and remember the following tips: • Use a hands-free device. • Get to know your device and its convenience features, such as speed dial and redial. These features help you reduce the time needed to place or receive calls on your mobile device. • Place your device within reach. Be able to access your wireless device without removing your eyes from the road. If you receive an incoming call at an inconvenient time, let your voice mail answer it for you. • Let the person you are speaking with know you are driving. Suspend calls in heavy traffic or hazardous weather conditions. Rain, sleet, snow, ice, and heavy traffic can be hazardous. • Do not take notes or look up phone numbers. Jotting down a “to do” list or flipping through your address book takes attention away from your primary responsibility of driving safely. • Dial sensibly and assess the traffic. Place calls when you are not moving or before pulling into traffic. Try to plan calls when your car will be stationary. If you need to make a call, dial only a few numbers, check the road and your mirrors, then continue. • Do not engage in stressful or emotional conversations that may be distracting. Make people you are talking with aware you are driving and suspend conversations that have the potential to divert your attention from the road. • Use your device to call for help. Dial a local emergency number in the case of fire, traffic accident, or medical emergencies. Do not use the device if the screen is cracked or broken • Excessive exposure to loud sounds can cause hearing damage. • Exposure to loud sounds while driving may distract your attention and cause an accident. • Always turn the volume down before plugging the earphones into an audio source and use only the minimum volume setting necessary to hear your conversation or music. Do not paint your device Directing a flash to the eyes may cause temporary loss of vision or damage to the eyes. • 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. • Disconnect chargers from power sources when not in use. • Use batteries only for their intended purposes. If you are using a hearing aid, contact the manufacturer for information about radio interference • Any changes or modifications to your device can void your manufacturer’s warranty. For service, take your device to a Samsung Service Center. • Do not disassemble or puncture the battery, as this can cause explosion or fire. Internal antenna Do not direct the flash to the eyes of people and pets Ensure maximum battery and charger life If you personally use any medical equipment, contact the manufacturer of the equipment to ensure the safety of your equipment from radio frequency. Do not bite or suck on the device or the battery Do not drop your device or cause impacts to your device • Your device may explode if left inside a closed vehicle, as the inside temperature can reach up to 80 °C. • Do not expose your device to direct sunlight for extended periods of time (such as on the dashboard of a car). • Store the battery at 0 °C to 40 °C. Your device 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 devices that exceed a maximum exposure level (known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR) of 2.0 W/kg. During testing, the maximum SAR recorded for this model was 0.582 W/kg. In normal use, the actual SAR is likely to be much lower, as the device 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 device reduces your overall exposure to RF energy. For more information about the SAR and related EU standards, visit the Samsung website. • Avoid exposing your device and batteries to very cold or very hot temperatures. • Extreme temperatures can cause the deformation of the device and reduce the charging capacity and life of your device and 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. Do not use your device in a hospital or near medical equipment that can be interfered with by radio frequency When cleaning your device: • Wipe your device or charger with a towel or a rubber. • Clean the terminals of the battery with a cotton ball or a towel. • Do not use chemicals or detergents. Broken glass or acrylic could cause injury to your hands and face. Take the device to a Samsung Service Center to have it repaired. Do not use the device for anything other than its intended use Avoid disturbing others when using the device in public Do not allow children to use your device Your device is not a toy. Do not allow children to play with it as they could hurt themselves and others, damage the device, or make calls that increase your charges. Install mobile devices and equipment with caution • Ensure that any mobile devices or related equipment installed in your vehicle are securely mounted. • Avoid placing your device and accessories near or in an air bag deployment area. Improperly installed wireless equipment can cause serious injury when air bags inflate rapidly. Allow only qualified personnel to service your device Allowing non-qualified personnel to service your device may result in damage to your device and will void your manufacturer’s warranty. Handle SIM cards or memory cards with care • Do not remove a card while the device is transferring or accessing information, as this could result in loss of data and/ or damage to the card or device. • Protect cards from strong shocks, static electricity, and electrical noise from other devices. • Do not touch gold-colored contacts or terminals with your fingers or metal objects. If dirty, wipe the card with a soft cloth. Ensure access to emergency services Emergency calls from your device may not be possible in some areas or circumstances. Before traveling in remote areas without signal coverage, plan an alternate method of contacting emergency services personnel.
