Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) certification
information
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
0.845 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.
The Declaration of Conformity statement at the back of this manual
demonstrates your device’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 website.

pacemaker.
Electronic devices in a motor vehicle may malfunction due to the
radio frequency of your device
Electronic devices in your car may malfunction due to radio frequency
of your device. Contact the manufacturer for more information.
Reduce the risk of repetitive motion injuries
When you repetitively perform actions, such as pressing keys,
drawing characters on a touch screen with your fingers, or playing
games, you may experience occasional discomfort in your hands,
neck, shoulders, or other parts of your body. When using your device
for extended periods, hold the device with a relaxed grip, press
the keys lightly, and take frequent breaks. If you continue to have
discomfort during or after such use, stop use and see a physician.
• Avoid contact with your device’s internal antenna. Touching the
antenna may reduce the call quality or cause the device to transmit
more radio frequency than necessary.
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.
• Disconnect chargers from power sources when not in use.

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.
• Position your device within easy 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.

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.
• In dry environments, static electricity can build
up in the headset. Avoid using headsets in dry
environments or touch a metal object to discharge
static electricity before connecting a headset to the
device.
When cleaning your device:
• Wipe your device or charger with a towel or a rubber.
