We recommend that you read this chapter carefully before using your phone. The
manufacturer disclaims any liability for damage, which may result as a consequence
of improper use or use contrary to the instructions contained herein.
Given that studies show that using a mobile phone while driving a vehicle
constitutes a real risk, even when the hands-free kit is used (car kit,
headset...), drivers are requested to refrain from using their mobile when the
vehicle is not parked.
When driving, do not use your phone and headphone to listen to music or
to the radio. Using a headphone can be dangerous and forbidden in some
When switched on, your phone emits electromagnetic waves that can
interfere with the vehicle's electronic systems such as ABS anti-lock brakes
or airbags. To ensure that there is no problem:
- do not place your phone on top of the dashboard or within an airbag
deployment area,
- check with your car dealer or the car manufacturer to make sure that the
dashboard is adequately shielded from mobile phone RF energy.
You are advised to switch off the telephone from time to time to optimise its
Switch the phone off before boarding an aircraft.
Switch the phone off when you are in health care facilities, except in
designated areas. As with many other types of equipment now in regular use,
mobile telephones can interfere with other electrical or electronic devices, or
equipment using radio frequency.
Switch the phone off when you are near gas or flammable liquids. Strictly
obey all signs and instructions posted in a fuel depot, petrol station, or
chemical plant, or in any potentially explosive atmosphere.
When the phone is switched on, it should be kept at least 15 cm from any
medical device such as a pacemaker, a hearing aid or insulin pump, etc. In
particular when using the phone, you should hold it against the ear on the
opposite side to the device, if any.
To avoid hearing impairment, pick up the call before holding your phone to
your ear. Also move the handset away from your ear while using the "handsfree" mode because the amplified volume might cause hearing damage.
Do not let children use the phone and/or play with the telephone and
accessories without supervision.
When replacing the cover please note that your phone may contain
substances that could create an allergic reaction.
Always handle your phone with care and keep it in a clean and dust-free
Do not allow your phone to be exposed to adverse weather or
environmental conditions (moisture, humidity, rain, infiltration of liquids,
dust, sea air, etc). The manufacturer's recommended operating temperature
range is -10°C to +55°C.
Over 55°C the legibility of the phone's display may be impaired, though this
is temporary and not serious.
Emergency call numbers may not be reachable on all cellular networks. You
should never rely only on your phone for emergency calls.
Do not open, dismantle or attempt to repair your mobile phone yourself.
Do not drop, throw or bend your mobile phone.
Do not paint it.
Use only batteries, battery chargers, and accessories which are
recommended by TCT Mobile Limited and its affiliates and are compatible
with your phone model. TCT Mobile Limited and its affiliates disclaim any
liability for damage caused by the use of other chargers or batteries.
Remember to make back-up copies or keep a written record of all
important information stored in your phone.
Some people may suffer epileptic seizures or blackouts when exposed to
flashing lights, or when playing video games. These seizures or blackouts
may occur even if a person never had a previous seizure or blackout. 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-lights feature on your phone.
Parents should monitor their children's use of video games or other features
that incorporate flashing lights on the phones. All persons should discontinue
use and consult a doctor if any of the following symptoms occur: convulsion,
eye or muscle twitching, loss of awareness, involuntary movements, or
disorientation. To limit the likelihood of such symptoms, please take the
following safety precautions:
- Do not play or use a flashing-lights feature if you are tired or need sleep.
- Take a minimum of a 15-minute break hourly.
- Play in a room in which all lights are on.
- Play at the farthest distance possible from the screen.
- If your hands, wrists, or arms become tired or sore while playing, stop and
rest for several hours before playing again.
- If you continue to have sore hands, wrists, or arms during or after playing,
stop the game and see a doctor.
When you play games on your phone, you may experience occasional
discomfort in your hands, arms, shoulders, neck, or other parts of your
body. Follow the instructions to avoid problems such as tendinitis, carpal
tunnel syndrome, or other musculoskeletal disorders.

The chargers designed for your mobile phone meet with the standard for
safety of information technology equipment and office equipment use. They
are also compliant to the ecodesign directive 2009/125/EC. Due to different
applicable electrical specifications, a charger you purchased in one jurisdiction
may not work in another jurisdiction. They should be used for this purpose
Proof of compliance with international standards (ICNIRP) or with European
Directive 1999/5/EC (R&TTE) is required of all mobile phone models before
they can be put on the market. The protection of the health and safety for
the user and any other person is an essential requirement of these standards
or this directive.
Your mobile device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed not to
exceed the limits for exposure to radio waves (radio frequency
electromagnetic fields) recommended by international guidelines. The
guidelines were developed by an independent scientific organization (ICNIRP)
and include a substantial safety margin designed to assure the safety of all
persons, regardless of age and health.
The radio wave exposure 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.
Tests for SAR are conducted using standard operating positions with the
device transmitting at its highest certified power level in all tested frequency
bands. The highest SAR values under the ICNIRP guidelines for this device
model are:

Your telephone is identified by an IMEI (phone serial number)
shown on the packaging label and in the product's memory. We
recommend that you note the number the first time you use
your telephone by entering * # 0 6 # and keep it in a safe place.
It may be requested by the police or your operator if your
telephone is stolen. This number allows your mobile telephone
to be blocked preventing a third person from using it, even with
a different SIM card.
1) Non-compliance with the instructions for use or installation,
or with technical and safety standards applicable in the
geographical area where your phone is used,
During use, the actual SAR values for this device are usually well below the
values stated above. This is because, for purposes of system efficiency and to
minimize interference on the network, the operating power of your mobile
device is automatically decreased when full power is not needed for the call.
The lower the power output of the device, the lower its SAR value.
Body-worn SAR testing has been carried out at a separation distance of 1.5
cm. To meet RF exposure guidelines during body-worn operation, the device
should be positioned at least this distance away from the body. If you are
not using an approved accessory ensure that whatever product is used is free
of any metal and that it positions the phone the indicated distance away from
the body.
Organizations such as the World Health Organization and the US Food and
Drug Administration have stated that if people are concerned and want to
reduce their exposure they could use a hands-free device to keep the phone
away from the head and body during phone calls, or reduce the amount of
time spent on the phone.
For more information you can go to
Additional information about electromagnetic fields and public health are
available on the following site:
Your telephone is equipped with a built-in antenna. For optimal operation,
you should avoid touching it or degrading it.
As mobile devices offer a range of functions, they can be used in positions
other than against your ear. In such circumstances the device will be
compliant with the guidelines when used with headset or USB data cable. If
you are using another accessory ensure that whatever product is used is free
of any metal and that it positions the phone at least 1.5 cm away from the
