Your phone supports two nano-SIM cards, or you can use one
nano-SIM card and one microSDXC card (optional, not included).
A microSDXC card can be installed or removed while the phone
is turned on. You need to unmount the microSDXC card before
removing it. See Using the microSDXC Card as Portable
Storage.
WARNING!

Radio Frequency Interference
General Statement on Interference
Care must be taken when using your phone in close proximity to
personal medical devices, such as pacemakers and hearing aids.
Please consult your doctor and the device manufacturers to
determine if the operation of your phone may interfere with the
operation of your medical devices.
Pacemakers
Pacemaker manufacturers recommend that a minimum
separation of 15 cm be maintained between a mobile phone and
a pacemaker to avoid potential interference with the pacemaker.
To achieve this, use the phone on the opposite ear to your
pacemaker and do not carry it in a breast pocket.
Hearing Aids
People with hearing aids or other cochlear implants may
experience interfering noises when using wireless devices or
when one is nearby.
The level of interference depends on the type of the hearing
device and the distance from the interference source. Increasing
the separation between them may reduce the interference. You
may also consult your hearing aid manufacturer to discuss
alternatives.
167
Medical Equipment
Switch off your wireless device when you are requested to do
so in hospitals, clinics or health care facilities. These requests
are designed to prevent possible interference with sensitive
medical equipment.
Aircraft
Switch off your wireless device whenever you are instructed to do
so by airport or airline staff.
Consult the airline staff about the use of wireless devices on
board the aircraft and enable airplane mode of your phone when
boarding an aircraft.
Interference in Vehicles
Please note that because of possible interference to
electronic equipment, some vehicle manufacturers forbid the
use of mobile phones in their vehicles unless a hands-free kit
with an external antenna is included in the installation.
Explosive Environments
Gas Stations and Explosive Atmosphere
In locations with potentially explosive atmosphere, obey all
posted signs to turn off wireless devices such as your phone or
other radio equipment.
168
Areas with potentially explosive atmosphere include fueling areas,
below decks on boats, fuel or chemical transfer or storage
facilities, and areas where the air contains chemicals or particles,
such as grain, dust, or metal powders.
Blasting Caps and Areas
Power off your mobile phone or wireless device when in a
blasting area or in areas where signs are posted to power off
“two-way radios” or “electronic devices” to avoid interfering with
blasting operations.
Specific Absorption Rate (SAR)
Your mobile device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is
designed not to exceed the limits for exposure to radio waves
recommended by international guidelines. These guidelines were
developed by the independent scientific organization ICNIRP and
include safety margins designed to assure the protection of all
persons, regardless of age and health.
The guidelines use a unit of measurement known as Specific
Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit for mobile devices is 2
W/kg and the highest SAR value for this device when tested at
the head was 0.467 W/kg* and when tested at the body was
0.530 W/kg*.
As SAR is measured utilizing the device’s highest transmitting
power, the actual SAR of this device while operating is typically
below that indicated above. This is due to automatic changes to
the power level of the device to ensure it only uses the minimum
power required to communicate with the network.
169
