RF Exposure
Your phone contains a transmitter and a receiver. When it
is ON, it receives and transmits RF energy. When you
communicate with your phone, the system handling your call
controls the power level at which your phone transmits.
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
organisation ICNIRP and include safety margins designed to
assure the protection of all persons, regardless of age and
The guidelines use a unit of measurement known as the
Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit for mobile
devices is 2.0 W/kg and the highest SAR value for this device
when tested at the ear was 0.281 W/kg*. As mobile devices
offer a range of functions, they can be used in other
positions, such as on the body as described in this user
As SAR is measured utilising 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.
• The tests are carried out in accordance with [CENELEC
EN50360] [IEC standard PT62209-1].
Body worn operation
Important safety information regarding radiofrequency
radiation (RF) exposure.
To ensure compliance with RF exposure guidelines the
phone must be used with a minimum of 1.5 cm separation
from the body.
Failure to observe these instructions could result in your RF
exposure exceeding the relevant guideline limits.
Limiting exposure to radio frequency (RF)
For individuals concerned about limiting their exposure to
RF fields, the World Health Organisation (WHO) provides the
following advice:
Precautionary measures: Present scientific information does
not indicate the need for any special precautions for the use
of mobile phones. If individuals are concerned, they might
choose to limit their own or their children’s RF exposure by
limiting the length of calls, or using ‘hands-free’ devices to
keep mobile phones away from the head and body.
Further information on this subject can be obtained from
the WHO home page http://www.who.int/peh-emf WHO
Fact sheet 193: June 2000.
Full attention must be given to driving at all times in order
to reduce the risk of an accident. Using a phone while

They could hurt themselves or others, or could accidentally
damage the phone.
Your phone contains small parts with sharp edges that may
cause an injury or which could become detached and create
a choking hazard.
To avoid the risk of demagnetisation, do not allow electronic
devices or magnetic media close to your phone for a long
Electrostatic discharge (ESD)
Do not touch the SIM card’s metal connectors.
Power supply
Do not connect your device to the power supply or switch it
on until instructed to do so in the installation instructions.
Do not touch the antenna unnecessarily.
Normal use position
When placing or receiving a phone call, hold your phone to
your ear, with the bottom towards your mouth or as you
would a fixed line phone.
Air Bags
Do not place a phone in the area over an air bag or in the air
bag deployment area.
Store the phone safely before driving your vehicle.
This phone is capable of producing bright flashing lights.
Repetitive Motion Injuries
To minimise the risk of RSI, when Texting or playing games
with your phone:
• Do not grip the phone too tightly.
Press the buttons lightly.
Make use of the special features in the handset which
minimise the number of buttons which have to be
pressed, such as message templates and predictive text.
Take lots of breaks to stretch and relax.
Emergency Calls
This phone, like any wireless phone, operates using radio
signals, which cannot guarantee connection in all
conditions. Therefore, you must never rely solely on any
wireless phone for emergency communications.
Loud Noise
This phone is capable of producing loud noises which may
damage your hearing.
MP3 and video player function
When listening to pre-recorded music or watching videos on
your device, with headphones or earphones at high volumes,
you run the risk of permanent damage to your hearing. Even
if you are used to listening to music at a high volume and it
seems acceptable to you, you still risk damaging your
hearing. Reduce the sound volume to a reasonable level
and avoid using headphones for an excessive period of time
to avoid hearing damage.
Different headphones, earphones or ear buds may deliver a
higher or lower volume, at the same volume setting on your
device. Always start at a low volume setting.
Do not listen to music or video with headphones while
Bright Light
This phone is capable of producing flash of light or use as a
torch, do not use it too close to the eyes.
Phone Heating
Your phone may become warm during charging and during
normal use.

Do not connect with incompatible products or accessories.
Take care not to touch or allow metal objects, such as coins
or key rings, to contact or short-circuit the battery terminals.
Connection to a Car
Seek professional advice when connecting a phone
interface to the vehicle electrical system.
Faulty and Damaged Products
Do not attempt to disassemble the phone or its accessory.
Only qualified personnel must service or repair the phone or
its accessory.
If your phone or its accessory has been submerged in water,
punctured, or subjected to a severe fall, do not use it until
you have taken it to be checked at an authorised service
Battery Handling & Safety
Always switch the device off and disconnect the charger
before removing the battery.
Only use the battery and charger supplied, or manufacturer
approved replacements intended for use with your phone.
Using other batteries and chargers could be dangerous.
Do not disassemble or short-circuit the battery. Accidental
short-circuiting can occur if a metallic object such as a key,
paper clip, or pen touches the terminals of the battery.
Improper battery use may result in a fire, explosion, or other
hazard. If you believe the battery has been damaged, do not
use it, take it to a service centre for testing.
Care must be taken when using the phone in close proximity
to personal medical devices, such as pacemakers and
hearing aids.
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 will depend on the type of 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.
Medical devices
Please consult your doctor and the device manufacturer to
determine if operation of your phone may interfere with the
operation of your medical device.
Switch off your wireless device when requested to do so in
hospitals, clinics or health care facilities. These requests are
designed to prevent possible interference with sensitive
medical equipment.
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, if your device offers a ‘flight mode’ this
must be enabled prior to boarding an aircraft.
Interference in cars
Please note that because of possible interference to
electronic equipment, some vehicle manufacturers forbid
the use of mobile phones in their vehicles unless a
handsfree kit with an external antenna is included in the
Petrol stations and explosive atmospheres
In locations with potentially explosive atmospheres, obey all
posted signs to turn off wireless devices such as your phone
or other radio equipment.
Areas with potentially explosive atmospheres include
fuelling areas, below decks on boats, fuel or chemical
transfer or storage facilities, areas where the air contains
