Trademarks
• SAMSUNG and the SAMSUNG logo are registered trademarks
of Samsung Electronics.
• All other trademarks and copyrights are the property of their
respective owners.
Please read this important safety information before you use
the device. It contains general safety information for devices
and may include content that does not apply to your device.
Follow the warning and caution information to prevent injury
to yourself or others and to prevent damage to your device.
The term ‘device’ refers to the product and its battery,
charger, the items supplied with the product, and any
Samsung-approved accessories used with the product.
• Always comply with regulations, instructions and signs in potentially
explosive environments.
• Do not use your device at refuelling points (petrol stations), near
fuels or chemicals, or in blasting areas.
• Do not store or carry flammable liquids, gases, or explosive materials
in the same compartment as the device, its parts, or accessories.
If you notice strange smells or sounds coming from
your device or the battery, or if you see smoke or liquids
leaking from the device or battery, stop using the device
immediately and take it to a Samsung Service Centre
Failure to do so may result in fire or explosion.
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, use your common sense and
remember the following tips:
• 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.
• Position your device within easy reach. Make sure you can access
your wireless device without taking your eyes off the road. If you
receive an incoming call at an inconvenient time, let your voicemail
answer it for you.
• 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.
• Do not engage in stressful or emotional conversations that may be
distracting. Make the person you are talking to aware that you are
driving and suspend conversations that could potentially divert your
attention from the road.
When cleaning your device, mind the following
• Wipe your device or charger with a towel or an eraser.
• Clean the battery terminals with a cotton ball or a towel.
• Do not use chemicals or detergents. Doing so may discolour or
corrode the outside the device or may result in electric shock or fire.
Do not use the device for anything other than its intended
use
Your device may malfunction.
Avoid disturbing others when using the device in public
Allow only qualified personnel to service your device
Allowing unqualified personnel to service your device may result in
damage to your device and will void your manufacturer’s warranty.
Handle SIM cards, memory cards, or cables with care
• When inserting a card or connecting a cable to your device, make
sure that the card is inserted or the cable is connected to the proper
side.
• 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-coloured contacts or terminals with your fingers or
metal objects. If dirty, wipe the card with a soft cloth.
• Inserting a card or connecting a cable by force or improperly may
result in damage to the multipurpose jack or other parts of the
device.

cooking equipment, or high pressure containers
Doing so may cause electric shock.
Do not directly connect together the charger’s positive and
negative terminals
Doing so may cause fire or serious injury.
Do not use your device outdoor during a thunderstorm
• Using generic batteries or chargers may shorten the life of your device
or cause the device to malfunction. They may also cause a fire or
cause the battery to explode.
• Use only Samsung-approved battery and charger specifically
designed for your device. Incompatible battery and charger can cause
serious injuries or damage to your device.

before use.
• Disconnect the charger from power sources when not in use.
• Use the battery only for their intended purposes.
• Follow all instructions in this manual to ensure the longest lifespan
of your device and battery. Damages or poor performance caused
by failure to follow warnings and instructions can void your
manufacturer’s warranty.
• Your device may wear out over time. Some parts and repairs are
covered by the warranty within the validity period, but damages or
deterioration caused by using unapproved accessories are not.
When using the device, mind the following
• Hold the device upright, as you would with a traditional phone.
• Speak directly into the microphone.
Do not disassemble, modify, or repair your device
• Any changes or modifications to your device can void your
manufacturer’s warranty. If your device needs servicing, take your
device to a Samsung Service Centre.
• Do not disassemble or puncture the battery, as this can cause
explosion or fire.
• Turn off the device before removing the battery. If you remove
the battery with the device turned on, it may cause the device to
malfunction.
• Ensure that any mobile devices or related equipment installed in your
vehicle are securely mounted.

Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) certification
information
THIS DEVICE MEETS INTERNATIONAL GUIDELINES FOR
EXPOSURE TO RADIO WAVES
Your mobile device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed
not to exceed the limits for exposure to radio waves (radio frequency
electromagnetic fields) recommended by international guidelines. The
guidelines were developed by an independent scientific organisation
(ICNIRP) and include a substantial safety margin designed to assure the
safety of all persons, regardless of age and health.
The radio wave exposure guidelines use a unit of measurement known
as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit for mobile
devices is 2.0 W/kg.
Tests for SAR are conducted using standard operating positions with
the device transmitting at its highest certified power level in all tested
frequency bands. The highest SAR values under the ICNIRP guidelines
for this device model are:
Maximum SAR for this model and conditions under which it was
recorded
Head SAR
0.897 W/kg
Body-worn SAR
0.286 W/kg
During use, the actual SAR values for this device are usually well
below the values stated above. This is because, for purposes of system
efficiency and to minimise interference on the network, the operating
power of your mobile device is automatically decreased when full power
is not needed for the call. The lower the power output of the device, the
lower its SAR value.
A body-worn SAR test has been performed on this device at a
separation distance of 1.5 cm. To meet RF exposure guidelines during
body-worn operation, the device must be positioned at least 1.5 cm
away from the body.
Organisations such as the World Health Organisation and the US Food
and Drug Administration have suggested that if people are concerned
and want to reduce their exposure, they could use a hands-free
accessory to keep the wireless device away from the head and body
during use, or reduce the amount of time spent using the device.
For more information, visit www.samsung.com/sar and search for your
device with the model number.
