rare that significant data delay or loss occurs if the USB device is used in a normal manner, this USB
device should not be used in cases that data transmission or reception failure could result in damage
of any kind to the user or another party, including but not limited to personal injury, death or loss
of personal property. Personal Communications Devices, LLC., bears no responsibility for damages
or losses of any kind resulting from delays or errors in data transmission using the USB device, or for
failure of the USB device to transmit or receive such data.
2. Do not use this USB device in areas where blasting is in progress, where explosive atmospheres
may be present, near medical equipment, life support equipment, or any equipment which may
be susceptible to any form of radio interference. Turn off this USB device in these areas, since it can
transmit signals that could interfere with this equipment.
3. Do not use this USB device in any aircraft whether the aircraft is on the ground or in flight. Make sure
to turn off this USB device in aircraft.
If used in an aircraft, it can transmit signals that could interfere with various aircraft systems.

THIS MODEL PHONE MEETS THE GOVERNMENT’S REQUIREMENTS AND EUROPEAN UNION (EU)
STANDARDS FOR EXPOSURE TO RADIO WAVES.
Your wireless phone is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed and manufactured not to exceed
the emission limits for exposure to radiofrequency (RF) energy set by the Federal Communications
Commission of the U.S. Government. These limits are part of comprehensive guidelines and establish
permitted levels of RF energy for the general population. The guidelines are based on standards that
were developed by independent scientific organizations through periodic and thorough evaluation of
scientific studies. The standards include a substantial safety margin designed to assure the safety of all
persons, regardless of age and health. The exposure standard for wireless mobile phones employs a
unit of measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit set by the FCC is 1.6
W/kg* and EU standards is 2.0 W/10kg.
Tests for SAR are conducted with the phone transmitting at its highest certified power level in all tested
frequency bands. Although the SAR is determined at the highest certified power level, the actual SAR
level of the phone while operating can be well below the maximum value. This is because the phone is
designed to operate at multiple power levels so as to use only the power required to reach the network.
In general, the closer you are to a wireless base station antenna, the lower the power output. Before
a phone model is available for sale to the public, it must be tested and certified to the FCC that it does
not exceed the limit established by the government adopted requirement for safe exposure. The tests
are performed in positions and locations (e.g., at the ear and worn on the body) as required by the FCC
25
APPENDIX
for each model. The highest SAR value for this model phone when tested for use at the when worn on
the body, as described in this user guide, is 1.15W/Kg. (Body-worn measurements differ among phone
models, depending upon available accessories and FCC requirements). While there may be differences
between the SAR levels of various phones and at various positions, they all meet the government
requirement for safe exposure. The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this model phone
with all reported SAR levels evaluated as in compliance with the FCC RF exposure guidelines. SAR
information on this model phone is on file with the FCC and can be found under the Display Grant
section of http://www.fcc.gov/oet/fccid after searching on FCC ID: JYCRAY.
Additional information on Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) can be found on the Cellular
Telecommunications Industry Association (CTIA) web-site at http://www.wow-com.com.
* In the United States and Canada, the SAR limit for mobile phones used by the public is 1.6 w/kg (W/
kg) averaged over one gram of tissue. The standard incorporates a substantial margin of safety to give
additional protection for the public and to account for any variations in measurements.
The Declaration of Conformity at the back of this guide demonstrates your device’s compliance with the
European Radio & Terminal Telecommunications Equipment (R&TTE) directive.
SAFETY INFORMATION FOR RF EXPOSURE
BODY WORN OPERATION
This device was tested in multiple computer configurations with USB port configurations for typical
near-body operations with the back of the USB Modem kept 5mm from body. To maintain compliance
with FCC RF exposure requirements it can be used in computers with substantially similar physical
dimensions, construction, and electrical and RF characteristics,and that maintain a minimum 5mm
separation distance between the user’s body and the back of the USB Modem, including the antenna.
The antenna(s) used for this USB Modem must not be co-located or must not operate in conjunction
with any other antenna or transmitter within a host device.
26
SAFETY INFORMATION
SAFETY INFORMATION FOR FIXED WIRELESS TERMINALS POTENTIALLY EXPLOSIVE ATMOSPHERES
Turn your phone OFF when in any area with a potentially explosive atmosphere and obey all signs
and instructions. Sparks in such areas could cause an explosion or fire resulting in bodily injury or even
death.
INTERFERENCE TO MEDICAL DIVICES
Certain electronic equipment may be shielded against RF signal from you wireless phone (pacemakers,
Hearing Aids, and so on). Turn your phone OFF in health care facilities when any regulations posted in
these areas instruct you to do so. RF signals may affect improperly installed or inadequately shielded
electronic system in motor vehicles.
EXPOSURE TO RF ENERGY
Use only the supplied or an approved replacement antenna. Do not touch the antenna unnecessarily
when the phone is in use. Do not move the antenna close to, or touching any exposed part of the body
when making a call.
FCC COMPLIANCE INFORMATION
This device complies with Part 15 of FCC Rules.
Operation is subject to the following two conditions:
(1) This device may not cause harmful interference.
(2) This device must accept any interference received.
Including interference that may cause undesired operation.
