Safety Precautions
This section includes some important information on safe and efficient
operation. Please read this information before using the phone.
Operational Precautions
„ Please use your phone properly. When making or receiving a call,
please 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 transmitting.
„ 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
„ Some phones may interfere with some hearing aids. In the event
of such interference, you may consult your hearing aids
manufacturer to discuss alternatives.
„ If you use any other personal medical device, please consult the
manufacturer of your device to determine if it is adequately shielded
from RF(radio frequency) energy.
„ 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.
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 facilities.
„ 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.
Safety and General Use in Vehicles
„ Safety airbag, brake, speed control system and oil eject system
shouldn’t 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
„ Please turn off your mobile phone before the airplane takes off. In
order to 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 standby
time) is noticeably shorter than normal, it is time to replace it with a
new one.
„ Please stop using the charger and battery when they are damaged
or show evidence of aging.
„ Return the worn-out battery to the provider or dispose of it in
accordance with environment regulations. Do not dispose of it in
household rubbish.
„ Please use original batteries or batteries approved by the phone
manufacturer. Using any unauthorized battery may affect your
handset performance or may cause danger of explosion, etc.
Warning: If the battery is damaged, do not discharge it. If the leakage
does come into contact with the eyes or skin, wash thoroughly in clean
water and consult a doctor.
