Safety Precautions
This section includes some important information on safe and
efficient operation. Please read this information before using the
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.
 Use careful with the earphone maybe possible excessive sound
pressure from earphones and headphones can cause hearing loss.
 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
 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 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
 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 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.
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 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 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.
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 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.

RF Exposure
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
The guidelines use a unit of measurement known as 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
0.655 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 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.
* The tests are carried out in accordance with EN 62209-1-2006.
