Your wireless phone is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed and
manufactured not to exceed the emission limits for exposure to radio
frequency (RF) energy set by the Federal Communications Commission
(FCC) of the U.S. Government. These limits are part of comprehensive
guidelines and establish permitted levels of RF energy for the general
population. The guidelines are based on the safety standards that were
developed by independent scientific organizations through periodic and
through evaluation of scientific studies.
The standards include a substantial safety margin designed to assure the
safety of all persons, regardless of age and health.
The exposure standard for wireless phones employs a unit of
measurement known as Specific Absorption Rate (SAR). The SAR limit set
by the FCC is 1.6W/kg*.
Risk of explosion if a battery is replaced by an incorrect type.
Dispose of used batteries according to the manufacturer's instructions.
At very high volume, prolonged listening to a headset can
damage your hearing.
Qualified service
Only qualified service personnel may repair your phone.
* In the U.S. and Canada, the SAR limit for mobile phones used by the public is 1.6
watts/kg (W/kg) averaged over one gram of tissue. The standard incorporates a
substantial margin of safety to give additional protection for the public and to account
for any variations in measurements.
