Turn off the phone or disable the wireless
functions when in an aircraft
Your phone can cause interference with aircraft
equipment. Follow all airline regulations and turn off
your phone or switch to a mode that disables the
wireless functions when directed by airline personnel.
Protect batteries and chargers from damage
• Avoid exposing batteries to very cold or very hot
temperatures (below 0° C/32° F or above 45° C/
113° F). Extreme temperatures can reduce the
charging capacity and life of your 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.
Excessive exposure to sound at high volumes
can cause hearing damage. 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.
Install mobile phones and equipment with
caution
Ensure that any mobile phones or related equipment
installed in your vehicle are securely mounted. Avoid
placing your phone and accessories near or in an air
bag deployment area. Improperly installed wireless
equipment can cause serious injury when air bags inflate
rapidly.
Comply with the following precautions to avoid dangerous or illegal situations and ensure peak performance of your mobile phone.
Handle and dispose of batteries and chargers
with care
Turn off the phone in potentially explosive
environments
• Use only Samsung-approved batteries and chargers
specifically designed for your phone.
Incompatible batteries and chargers can cause serious
injuries or damage to your phone.
• Never dispose of batteries or phones in a fire. Follow
all local regulations when disposing of used batteries
or phones.
• Never place batteries or phones on or in heating
devices, such as microwave ovens, stoves, or
radiators. Batteries may explode when overheated.
• Never crush or puncture the battery. Avoid exposing
the battery to high external pressure, which can lead to
an internal short circuit and overheating.
Do not use your phone at refuelling points (service
stations) or near fuels or chemicals. Turn off your phone
whenever directed by warning signs or instructions.
Your phone could cause explosions or fire in and around
fuel or chemical storage and transfer areas or blasting
areas. Do not store or carry flammable liquids, gases,
or explosive materials in the same compartment as the
phone, its parts, or accessories.
Avoid interference with pacemakers
Maintain a minimum of 15 cm between mobile phones
and pacemakers to avoid potential interference, as
recommended by manufacturers and the independent
research group, Wireless Technology Research. If you
have any reason to suspect that your phone is interfering
with a pacemaker or other medical device, turn off the
phone immediately and contact the manufacturer of the
pacemaker or medical device for guidance.
Handle your phone carefully and sensibly
• Do not disassemble your phone due to a risk of electric
shock.
• Do not allow your phone to get wet—liquids can cause
serious damage and will change the colour of the label
that indicates water damage inside the phone. Do not
handle your phone with wet hands. Water damage to
your phone can void your manufacturer's warranty.
• Avoid using or storing your phone in dusty, dirty areas
to prevent damage to moving parts.
• Your phone is a complex electronic device—protect
it from impacts and rough handling to avoid serious
damage.
• Do not paint your phone, as paint can clog moving
parts and prevent proper operation.
• Your phone may be damaged by exposure to magnetic
fields. Do not use carrying cases or accessories with
magnetic closures or allow your phone to come in
contact with magnetic fields for extended periods of
time.
Important usage information
Use your phone in the normal position
Avoid contact with your phone's internal antenna.
Internal antenna
Reduce the risk of repetitive motion injuries
While using your phone, hold the phone with a relaxed
grip, press the buttons lightly, use special features that
reduce the number of buttons you have to press (such as
templates and predictive text), and take frequent breaks.
Do not use the phone if the screen is cracked or
broken
Broken glass or acrylic could cause injury to your hand
and face. Bring the phone to a Samsung service centre
to replace the screen. Damage caused by careless
handling will void your manufacturer’s warranty.
Allowing unqualified personnel to service your phone
may result in damage to your phone and will void your
warranty.

Turn off the phone near medical equipment
Your phone can interfere with medical equipment in
hospitals or health care facilities. Follow all regulations,
posted warnings, and directions from medical
personnel.
Emergency calls from your phone may not be possible
in some areas or circumstances. Before travelling in
remote or undeveloped areas, plan an alternate method
of contacting emergency services personnel.
• Do not remove a card while the phone is transferring
or accessing information, as this could result in loss of
data and/or damage to the card or phone.
• 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.

Follow all safety warnings and regulations
Ensure access to emergency services
Your phone emits radio frequency (RF) signals that
may interfere with unshielded or improperly shielded
electronic equipment, such as pacemakers, hearing
aids, medical devices, and other electronic devices in
homes or vehicles. Consult the manufacturers of your
electronic devices to solve any interference problems
you experience.
1
Avoid using your phone while driving and obey all
regulations that restrict the use of mobile phones while
driving. Use hands-free accessories to increase your
safety when possible.
• 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 purpose.
Avoid interference with other electronic devices

Safety precautions
Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) certification
information
Your device conforms to U.S. Federal Communications
Commission (FCC) 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 1.6 W/kg.
During testing, the maximum SAR values recorded for
this model were: 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 FCC has granted an Equipment Authorisation
for this model phone based on the compliance of
all reported SAR levels with the FCC RF exposure
guidelines. The authorisation can be found on the
FCC Office of Engineering and Technology website at
http:// www.fcc.gov/oet/ea.
