This mobile phone has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules . These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation . This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications .

However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation . If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:

Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna .

Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver .

RF exposure information (SAR)

This phone is designed and manufactured not to exceed the emission limits for exposure to radio frequency (RF) energy set by the Federal

Communications Commission of the United States, Industry Canada of Canada .

During SAR testing, this device was set to transmit at its highest certified power level in all tested frequency bands, and placed in positions that simulate RF exposure in usage against the head with no separation, and near the body with the separation of 0 .4 inches (10 mm) . Although the SAR is determined at the highest certified power level, the actual SAR level of the device 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 .

The exposure standard for wireless devices employing a unit of measurement is known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR . The SAR limit set by the FCC

is 1.6 W/kg, and 1.6 W/kg by Industry Canada .

This device is complied with SAR for general population /uncontrolled exposure limits in ANSI/IEEE C95 .1-1992 and Canada RSS 102, and had been tested in accordance with the measurement methods and procedures specified in OET Bulletin 65 Supplement C, and Canada RSS 102 . This device has been tested, and meets the FCC, IC RF exposure guidelines when tested with the device directly contacted to the body .

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 www .fcc .gov/oet/ea/fccid after searching on FCC ID: SRQ-Z987 .

102

FOR YOUR SAFETY

While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various phones and at various positions, they all meet the government requirements .

SAR compliance for body-worn operation is based on a separation distance of 0 .4 inches (10 mm) between the unit and the human body . Carry this device at least 0 .4 inches (10 mm) away from your body to ensure RF exposure level compliant or lower to the reported level . To support body-worn operation, choose the belt clips or holsters, which do not contain metallic components, to maintain a separation of 0 .4 inches (10 mm) between this device and your body .

RF exposure compliance with any body-worn accessory, which contains metal, was not tested and certified, and use of such body-worn accessory should be avoided .

Hearing Aid Compatibility (HAC) regulations for mobile phones

In 2003, the FCC adopted rules to make digital wireless telephones compatible with hearing aids and cochlear implants . Although analog wireless phones do not usually cause interference with hearing aids or cochlear implants, digital wireless phones sometimes do because of electromagnetic energy emitted by the phone’s antenna, backlight, or other components . Your phone is compliant with FCC HAC regulations (ANSI

C63 .19- 2011) . While some wireless phones are used near some hearing devices (hearing aids and cochlear implants), users may detect a buzzing, humming, or whining noise . Some hearing devices are more immune than others to this interference noise and phones also vary in the amount of interference they generate . The wireless telephone industry has developed a rating system for wireless phones to assist hearing device users in finding phones that may be compatible with their hearing devices . Not all phones have been rated . Phones that are rated have the rating on their box or a label located on the box . The ratings are not guarantees . Results will vary

FOR YOUR SAFETY

103

depending on the user’s hearing device and hearing loss . If your hearing device happens to be vulnerable to interference, you may not be able to use a rated phone successfully . Trying out the phone with your hearing device is the best way to evaluate it for your personal needs .

This phone has been tested and rated for use with hearing aids for some of the wireless technologies that it uses . However, there may be some newer wireless technologies used in this phone that have not been tested yet for use with hearing aids . It is important to try the different features of this phone thoroughly and in different locations, using your hearing aid or cochlear implant, to determine if you hear any interfering noise . Consult your service provider or the manufacturer of this phone for more information on hearing aid compatibility . If you have questions about return or exchange policies, consult your service provider or phone retailer .

M-Ratings: Phones rated M3 or M4 meet FCC requirements and are likely to generate less interference to hearing devices than phones that are not labeled . M4 is the better/higher of the two ratings .

T-Ratings: Phones rated T3 or T4 meet FCC requirements and are likely to be more usable with a hearing device’s telecoil (“T Switch” or “Telephone

Switch”) than unrated phones . T4 is the better/ higher of the two ratings .

(Note that not all hearing devices have telecoils in them .)

Your phone meets the M4/T4 level rating.

Hearing devices may also be rated . Your hearing device manufacturer or hearing health professional may help you find this rating . For more information about FCC Hearing Aid Compatibility, please go to http://www .fcc .gov/cgb/dro .

Care must be taken when using the phone in close proximity to personal medical devices, such as pacemakers and hearing aids .

Pacemakers

Pacemaker manufacturers recommend that a minimum separation of

6 inches (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 .

110 FOR YOUR SAFETY

Medical devices
