hold your phone as holding a wireline telephone. Make sure that the phone is
at least one inch (about two point five centimeters) from your body when
„ Do not touch the antenna when the phone is in use. Touching the antenna
area affects call quality and may cause the phone to operate at a higher
power level than needed.
„ Some people may be susceptible to epileptic seizures or blackouts when exposed
to flashing lights, such as when watching television or playing video games. If
you have experienced seizures or blackouts, or if you have a family
history of such occurrences, please consult your doctor before playing video
games on your phone or enabling a flashing-light feature on your phone. (The
flashing-light feature is not available on all products.)
„ Keep the phone out of the reach of small children. The phone may cause
injury if used as a toy.
Precautions While Driving
„ Please pay attention to the traffic safety. Check the laws and regulations on the
use of your phone in the area where you drive. Always obey them.
„ Use hands-free function of the phone, if available.
„ Pull off the road and park before making or answering a call if conditions require.
Precautions for Medical Devices and Facilities
„ When using your phone near pacemakers, please always keep the phone
more than eight inches (about twenty centimeters) from the pacemaker
when the phone is switched on. Do not carry the phone in the breast pocket.
Use the ear opposite the pacemaker to minimize the potential for
interference. Switch off the phone immediately if necessary.
„ Some phones may interfere with some hearing aids. In the event of such
interference, you may consult your hearing aids manufacturer to discuss
„ If you use any other personal medical device, please consult the
manufacturer of your device to determine if it is adequately shielded from RF
„ In those facilities with special demand, such as hospital or health care facilities,
please pay attention to the restriction on the use of mobile phone. Switch off
your phone if required.
Mobile Phone
„ Please use original accessories or accessories approved by the phone
manufacturer. Using any unauthorized accessories may affect your
mobile phone’s performance, damage your phone or even cause danger to
your body and violate related local regulations about telecom terminals.
„ Turn off your phone before you clean it. Use a damp or anti-static cloth to clean
the phone. Do not use a dry cloth or electrostatically charged cloth. Do not use
chemical or abrasive cleaners as these could damage the phone.
„ As your mobile phone can produce electromagnetic field, do not place it near
magnetic items such as computer disks.
„ Using the phone near electrical appliances such as TV, telephone, radio
and personal computer can cause interference.
„ Do not expose your mobile phone to direct sunlight or store it in hot areas.
High temperatures can shorten the life of electronic devices.
„ Keep your phone dry. Any liquid may damage your phone.
„ Do not drop, knock or harshly treat the phone. Rough handling can break
internal circuit boards.
„ Do not connect the phone with any incompatible enhancement.
„ Do not attempt to disassemble the mobile phone or battery.
„ Do not store the phone with flammable or explosive articles.
„ Do not charge the mobile phone without battery.
„ Some electronic devices are susceptible to electromagnetic interference sent by

away as you can from TV set, radio and other automated office equipment so
as to avoid electromagnetic interference.
„ Operating phone may interfere with medical devices like hearing aides and
pacemakers, or other medical devices in hospital. Consult a physician or
the manufacturer of the medical device before using phone.
„ Be aware of the usage limitation when using phone at places such as oil
warehouses, or chemical factories, where there are explosive gases or
explosive products being processed, because even if your phone is in idle
state, it still transmits radio frequency (RF) energy. Therefore, power off
your phone if required.
„ Do not touch the antenna while calling. Otherwise it will affect the quality of
calling and waste battery energy. The damaged antenna will cause slight
burn while touching your skin.
„ Keep phone out of the reach of small children. Phone may cause injury if
used as a toy.
„ Do not put other things on the terminal to avoid overlaying radiator.
„ Keep the antenna free from obstructions and position the antenna straight
up. This will ensure best call quality.
Precautions for Potentially Explosive Atmospheres
„ Switch off your phone prior to entering any area with potentially explosive
atmospheres, such as fueling areas, fuel or chemical transfer or storage
„ Do not remove, install, or charge batteries in such areas. Spark in a
potentially explosive atmosphere can cause an explosion or fire resulting
in bodily injury or even death.
„ To avoid possible interference with blasting operations, switch off your
phone when you are near electrical blasting caps, in a blasting area, or in
areas posted “Turn off electronic devices.” Obey all signs and instructions.
Precautions for Electronic Devices
„ Some electronic devices are susceptible to electromagnetic interference sent by
mobile phone if inadequately shielded, such as electronic system of vehicles.
Please consult the manufacturer of the device before using the phone if necessary.

be affected by wireless transmission. If you do meet problems above, please
contact your automobile provider. Do not place your phone in the area over
an airbag or in the airbag deployment area. Airbags inflate with great force.
If a phone is placed in the airbag deployment area and the airbag inflates,
the phone may be propelled with great force and cause serious injury to
occupants of the vehicle.
„ Please turn off your mobile phone at a refueling point, and the same to the
place where the use of two-way radio is prohibited.
Aircraft Safety

protect airplane’s communication system from interference, it is forbidden to
use mobile phone in flight. Safety regulations require you to have permission
from a crew member to use your phone while the plane is on the ground.
„ If the mobile phone has the function of automatic timing power-on,
please check your alarm setting to make sure that your phone will not be
automatically turned on during flight.
Battery Use
„ Do not short-circuit the battery, as this can cause the unit to overheat or ignite.
„ Do not store battery in hot areas or throw it into fire. Otherwise, it will
cause explosion.
„ Do not disassemble or refit the battery. Otherwise, it will cause liquid leakage,
overheating, explosion and ignition of the battery.
„ Please store the battery in a cool dry place if you don’t use it for a long period.
„ The battery can be recharged for hundreds of times, but it will eventually wear out.
When the operating time (talk time and idle time) is noticeably shorter than
normal, it is time to replace it with a new one.

evidence of aging.

environment regulations. Do not dispose of it in household rubbish.
