Only use approved batteries, antennas, and chargers. The use of any unauthorized accessories may be dangerous and void the phone warranty if they cause damage or a defect to the device. Although your device is quite sturdy, it is a complex piece of equipment and can be broken. Avoid dropping, hitting, bending, or sitting on it. Information to User This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits of a Class B digital device. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation; if this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures: • Reorient/relocate the receiving antenna. • Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver. • Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected. Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help. Warning: At very high volumes, prolonged listening to a headset can damage your hearing. Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) for Wireless Devices The SAR is a value that corresponds to the relative amount of RF energy absorbed by the user of a wireless device. The SAR value of a device is the result of an extensive testing, measuring and calculation process. It does not represent how much RF the device emits. All devices are tested at their highest value in strict laboratory settings. But when in operation, the SAR of a device can be substantially less than the level reported to Industry Canada. This is because of a variety of factors including its proximity to a base station antenna, design and other factors. What is important to remember is that each device meets strict federal guidelines. Variations in SARs do not represent a variation in safety. 104 Health and Safety All devices must meet the federal standard, which incorporates a substantial margin of safety. As stated above, variations in SAR values between different model devices do not mean variations in safety.
