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
0.883 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.
Do not charge the battery with chargers that are not approved
by the manufacturer
Caution: Follow all safety warnings and regulations
when using your device in restricted areas
Do not use your device during a thunderstorm
Your device may malfunction and your risk of electric shock is
increased.

a particular area.
Do not handle a damaged or leaking Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) battery
For safe disposal of your Li-Ion batteries, contact your nearest
authorised service centre.
Do not use your device near other electronic devices
Most electronic devices use radio frequency signals. Your device
may interfere with other electronic devices.
Handle and dispose of batteries and chargers with care
• Use only Samsung-approved batteries and chargers specifically
designed for your device. Incompatible batteries and chargers can
cause serious injuries or damage to your device.
• Never dispose of batteries or devices in a fire. Follow all local
regulations when disposing of used batteries or devices.
• Never place batteries or devices on or in heating devices, such
as microwave ovens, stoves, or radiators. Batteries may explode
when overheated.
Do not use your device near a pacemaker
• Avoid using your device within a 15 cm range of a pacemaker if
possible, as your device can interfere with the pacemaker.
• If you must use your device, keep at least 15 cm away from the
pacemaker.
• To minimise the possible interference with a pacemaker, use your
device on the opposite side of your body from the pacemaker.
Do not store your device near magnetic fields
• Your device may malfunction or the battery may discharge from
exposure to magnetic fields.
• Magnetic stripe cards, including credit cards, phone cards,
passbooks, and boarding passes, may be damaged by magnetic
fields.
• Do not use carrying cases or accessories with magnetic closures
or allow your device to come in contact with magnetic fields for
extended periods of time.
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.

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.
• Use your device to help others in emergencies. If you see an
auto accident, a crime in progress, or a serious emergency
where lives are in danger, call a local emergency number.
Do not paint or put stickers on your device
Paint and stickers can clog moving parts and prevent proper
operation. If you are allergic to paint or metal parts of the product,
you may experience itching, eczema, or swelling of the skin. When
this happens, stop using the product and consult your physician.

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.
