Connecting to Mobile Networks
When you buy your phone and sign up for service, your phone is configured
to use your provider’s mobile networks for voice calls and for transmitting
data.
Different locations may have different mobile networks available.
Initially, your phone is configured to use the fastest mobile network
available for data. You can also configure your phone to access a different
set of networks entirely, or to behave in specific ways when roaming.
The following icons in the Status Bar indicate which kind of data network
you’re connected to and the network signal strength.
Connected to the 4G network (LTE).
Connected to the EVDO network (EVDO revA).
Signal strength - the more bars that are lit, the stronger the
wireless signal.
Connected to another wireless service provider’s network
(roaming).
When connected to slower networks, you may want to postpone using
your phone for data-intensive tasks until you’re connected to a faster
network again or find a Wi-Fi network to connect to.
To disable data when roaming
You can prevent your phone from transmitting data over other carriers’
mobile networks when you leave an area that is covered by your carrier’s
networks. This is useful for controlling expenses if your cell plan doesn’t

at distances of up to 100 meters, depending on the Wi-Fi router and your
surroundings.
To use Wi-Fi on your phone, you must connect to a wireless access point.
Some access points are open and you can simply connect to them. Others
are hidden or implement other security features, so you must configure
your phone so it can connect to them.
Turn off Wi-Fi when you’re not using it, to extend the life of your battery.
The following Status Bar icon indicates your Wi-Fi status.
Connected to a Wi-Fi network (waves indicate connection
strength).

address and other information it needs from the network, using the DHCP
protocol. To configure the phone with a static IP address and other
advanced settings, from the Wi-Fi settings screen, touch and hold the
connected network. Tap Modify network in the Context menu that appears,
then checkmark the Show advanced options checkbox.

You can add a Wi-Fi network so the phone will remember it, along with any
security credentials, and connect to it automatically when it’s in range. You
can also add a Wi-Fi network manually if it doesn’t broadcast its name
(SSID) or if you want to add a Wi-Fi network when you’re out of its range.
To add a secured network, you need to contact the network’s administrator
to obtain the password or other required security credentials.

The phone will connect to the wireless network (if it's currently within
range). Any credentials that you entered are saved, so you're connected
automatically anytime you come within range of this network.

You can make the phone forget about the details of a Wi-Fi network that
you added. For example, if you don’t want the phone to connect to it
automatically or if it’s a network that you no longer use.

shared media from your phone, tablet, and PC which allows you create a

FCC RF Exposure Information
WARNING! Read this information before operating the phone.
In August 1996, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) of the
United States, with its action in Report and Order FCC 96-326, adopted an
updated safety standard for human exposure to Radio Frequency (RF)
electromagnetic energy emitted by FCC regulated transmitters. Those
guidelines are consistent with the safety standard previously set by both
U.S. and international standards bodies. The design of this phone complies
with the FCC guidelines and these international standards.
Safety

Consumer Information About Radio Frequency
Emissions
Your wireless phone, which contains a radio transmitter and receiver,
emits radio frequency energy during use. The following consumer
information addresses commonly asked questions about the health
effects of wireless phones.
Are wireless phones safe?
Scientific research on the subject of wireless phones and radio frequency
(“RF”) energy has been conducted worldwide for many years, and
continues. In the United States, the Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”)
and the Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”) set policies and
procedures for wireless phones. The FDA issued a website publication on
Safety
health issues related to cell phone usage where it states, “The scientific
community at large … believes that the weight of scientific evidence does
not show an association between exposure to radiofrequency (RF) from cell
phones and adverse health outcomes. Still the scientific community does
recommend conducting additional research to address gaps in knowledge.
That research is being conducted around the world and the FDA continues
to monitor developments in this field. You can access the joint FDA/FCC
website at http://www.fda.gov (under “c”in the subject index, select Cell
Phones > Research). You can also contact the FDA toll-free at (888)
463-6332 or (888) INFO-FDA. In June 2000, the FDA entered into a
cooperative research and development agreement through which additional
scientific research is being conducted. The FCC issued its own website
publication stating that “there is no scientific evidence that proves that
wireless phone usage can lead to cancer or a variety of other problems,
including headaches, dizziness or memory loss.” This publication is
available at http://www.fcc.gov/cgb/ cellular.html or through the FCC at
(888) 225-5322 or (888) CALL-FCC.
What does “SAR” mean?
In 1996, the FCC, working with the FDA, the U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency, and other agencies, established RF exposure safety guidelines for
wireless phones in the United States. Before a wireless phone model is
available for sale to the public, it must be tested by the manufacturer and
certified to the FCC that it does not exceed limits established by the FCC.
One of these limits is expressed as a Specific Absorption Rate, or “SAR.”
SAR is a measure of the rate of absorption of RF energy in the body. Tests
for SAR are conducted with the phone transmitting at its highest power
level in all tested frequency bands. Since 1996, the FCC has required that
the SAR of handheld wireless phones not exceed 1.6 watts per kilogram,
averaged over one gram of tissue.
Although the SAR is determined at the highest power level, the actual SAR
value of a wireless phone while operating can be less than the reported
SAR value. This is because the SAR value may vary from call to call,
depending on factors such as proximity to a cell site, the proximity of the
phone to the body while in use, and the use of hands-free devices. For
191
192
Safety
more information about SARs, see the FCC’s OET Bulletins 56 and 65 at
http://www.fcc.gov/Bureaus/Engineering_Technology/Documents/bulletins
or visit the Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association website at
http://www.ctia.org/consumer_info/index.cfm/AID/10371. You may also
wish to contact the manufacturer of your phone.
Can I minimize my RF exposure?
If you’re concerned about RF, there are several simple steps you can take
to minimize your RF exposure. You can, of course, reduce your talk time.
You can place more distance between your body and the source of the RF,
as the exposure level drops off dramatically with distance. The FDA/FCC
website states that “hands-free kits can be used with wireless phones for
convenience and comfort. These systems reduce the absorption of RF
energy in the head because the phone, which is the source of the RF
emissions, will not be placed against the head. On the other hand, if the
phone is mounted against the waist or other part of the body during use,
then that part of the body will absorb more RF energy. Wireless phones
marketed in the U.S. are required to meet safety requirements regardless
of whether they are used against the head or against the body. Either
configuration should result in compliance with the safety limit.” Also, if you
use your wireless phone while in a car, you can use a phone with an
antenna on the outside of the vehicle. You should also read and follow your
wireless phone manufacturer’s instructions for the safe operation of your
phone.
Do wireless phones pose any special risks to children?
The FDA/FCC website states that “the scientific evidence does not show a
danger to users of wireless communication devices, including children.”
The FDA/FCC website further states that “some groups sponsored by
other national governments have advised that children be discouraged from
using wireless phones at all”. For example, the Stewart Report from the
United Kingdom [“UK”] made such a recommendation in December 2000.
In this report a group of independent experts noted that no evidence exists
that using a cell phone causes brain tumors or other ill effects. [The UK’s]
recommendation to limit cell phone use by children was strictly
precautionary; it was not based on scientific evidence that any health
Safety
hazard exists. A copy of the UK’s leaflet is available at http://www.dh.gov.uk
(search “mobile”), or you can write to: NRPB, Chilton, Didcot, Oxon OX11
ORQ, United Kingdom. Copies of the UK’s annual reports on mobile phones
and RF are available online at www.iegmp.org.uk and http://www.hpa.org.
uk/radiation/ (search “mobile”). Parents who wish to reduce their children’s
RF exposure may choose to restrict their children’s wireless phone use.

Consumer Information on SAR
(Specific Absorption Rate)
This model phone meets the government’s requirements for exposure to
radio waves. Your wireless phone is a radio transmitter and receiver. It’s
designed and manufactured not to exceed the emission limits for exposure
to Radio Frequency (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
Safety
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. Tests for SAR are conducted using
standard operating positions specified by the FCC with the phone
transmitting at its highest certified power level in all tested frequency
bands. Although 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. Because the phone is designed to operate at multiple
power levels to use only the power required to reach the network, in
general, the closer you’re 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 for each model.
The highest SAR value for this model phone when tested for use at the ear
is 0.98 W/kg and when worn on the body, as described in this user guide, is
1.18 W/kg (body-worn measurements differ among phone models,
depending upon available accessories and FCC requirements). While there
may be differences between 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
emission 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 ZNFVS876. Additional
information on Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) can be found on the
Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association (CTIA) website at http://
www.ctia.org/.
195
196
Safety
* In the United States and Canada, the SAR limit for mobile phones used
by the public is 1.6 watts/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.
FCC Hearing-Aid Compatibility (HAC) Regulations
for Wireless Devices
On July 10, 2003, the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC)
Report and Order in WT Docket 01-309 modified the exception of wireless
phones under the Hearing Aid Compatibility Act of 1988 (HAC Act) to
require digital wireless phones be compatible with hearing-aids. The intent
of the HAC Act is to ensure reasonable access to telecommunications
services for persons with hearing disabilities.
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 to find 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 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.
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.
Safety
T-Ratings: Phones rated T3 or T4 meet FCC requirements and are likely to
generate less interference to hearing devices than phones that are not
labeled. T4 is the better/ higher of the two ratings.
Hearing devices may also be rated. Your hearing device manufacturer or
hearing health professional may help you find this rating. Higher ratings
mean that the hearing device is relatively immune to interference noise.
The hearing aid and wireless phone rating values are then added together.
A sum of 5 is considered acceptable for normal use. A sum of 6 is
considered for best use.
In the above example, if a hearing aid meets the M2 level rating and the
wireless phone meets the M3 level rating, the sum of the two values equal
M5. This should provide the hearing aid user with “normal usage” while
using their hearing aid with the particular wireless phone. “Normal usage”
in this context is defined as a signal quality that’s acceptable for normal
operation.
The M mark is intended to be synonymous with the U mark. The T mark is
intended to be synonymous with the UT mark. The M and T marks are
recommended by the Alliance for Telecommunications Industries Solutions
(ATIS). The U and UT marks are referenced in Section 20.19 of the FCC
Rules. The HAC rating and measurement procedure are described in the
American National Standards Institute (ANSI) C63.19 standard.
To ensure that the Hearing Aid Compatibility rating for your phone is
maintained, secondary transmitters such as Bluetooth and WLAN
components must be disabled during a call.

Hearing Loss Association of America [HLAA]
http://hearingloss.org/content/telephones-and-mobile-devices
Caution:
Avoid potential hearing loss.
Prolonged exposure to loud sounds (including music) is the most common
cause of preventable hearing loss. Some scientific research suggests that
using portable audio devices, such as portable music players and cellular
telephones, at high volume settings for long durations may lead to
permanent noise-induced hearing loss. This includes the use of
headphones (including headsets, earbuds and Bluetooth® or other wireless
devices). Exposure to very loud sound has also been associated in some
studies with tinnitus (a ringing in the ear), hypersensitivity to sound and
distorted hearing. Individual susceptibility to noise-induced hearing loss and
other potential hearing problems varies.
The amount of sound produced by a portable audio device varies depending
on the nature of the sound, the device, the device settings and the
headphones. You should follow some commonsense recommendations
when using any portable audio device:
• Set the volume in a quiet environment and select the lowest volume at
which you can hear adequately.
Safety
• When using headphones, turn the volume down if you cannot hear the
people speaking near you or if the person sitting next to you can hear
what you’re listening to.
• Do not turn the volume up to block out noisy surroundings. If you choose
to listen to your portable device in a noisy environment, use noisecancelling headphones to block out background environmental noise.
• Limit the amount of time you listen. As the volume increases, less time is
required before your hearing could be affected.
• Avoid using headphones after exposure to extremely loud noises, such as
concerts, that might cause temporary hearing loss. Temporary hearing
loss might cause unsafe volumes to sound normal.
• Do not listen at any volume that causes you discomfort. If you experience
ringing in your ears, hear muffled speech or experience any temporary
hearing difficulty after listening to your portable audio device, discontinue
use and consult your doctor.
TIA Safety Information
The following is the complete TIA Safety Information for wireless handheld
phones.
Exposure to Radio Frequency Signal
Your wireless handheld portable phone is a low power radio transmitter and
receiver. When ON, it receives and sends out Radio Frequency (RF) signals.
In August, 1996, the Federal Communications Commissions (FCC) adopted
RF exposure guidelines with safety levels for handheld wireless phones.
Those guidelines are consistent with the safety standards previously set by
both U.S. and international standards bodies:
ANSI C95.1 (1992) *
NCRP Report 86 (1986)
ICNIRP (1996)
199
200
Safety
* American National Standards Institute; National Council on Radiation
Protection and Measurements; International Commission on Non-Ionizing
Radiation Protection
Those standards were based on comprehensive and periodic evaluations of
the relevant scientific literature. For example, over 120 scientists,
engineers, and physicians from universities, government health agencies,
and industry reviewed the available body of research to develop the ANSI
Standard (C95.1).
The design of your phone complies with the FCC guidelines (and those
standards).
Antenna Care
Use only the supplied or an approved replacement antenna. Unauthorized
antennas, modifications, or attachments could damage the phone and may
violate FCC regulations.
Phone Operation
NORMAL POSITION: Hold the phone as you would any other telephone
with the phone held upright.
Tips on Efficient Operation
For your phone to operate most efficiently:
Don’t touch the antenna unnecessarily when the phone is in use. Contact
with the antenna affects call quality and may cause the phone to operate at
a higher power level than otherwise needed.
Electronic Devices
Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from RF signals. However,
certain electronic equipment may not be shielded against the RF signals
from your wireless phone.
Pacemakers
The Health Industry Manufacturers Association recommends that a
minimum separation of six (6) inches be maintained between a handheld
wireless phone and a pacemaker to avoid potential interference with the
Safety
pacemaker. These recommendations are consistent with the independent
research by and recommendations of Wireless Technology Research.
Persons with pacemakers:
• Should ALWAYS keep the phone more than six (6) inches from their
pacemaker when the phone is turned ON;
• Should not carry the phone in a breast pocket;
• Should use the ear opposite the pacemaker to minimize the potential for
interference;
• Should turn the phone OFF immediately if there is any reason to suspect
that interference is taking place.
Hearing Aids
Some digital wireless phones may interfere with some hearing aids. In the
event of such interference, you may want to consult your service provider
(or call the customer service line to discuss alternatives).
Other Medical Devices
If you use any other personal medical device, consult the manufacturer of
your device to determine if it’s adequately shielded from external RF
energy. Your physician may be able to assist you in obtaining this
information.
Health Care Facilities
Turn your phone OFF in health care facilities when any regulations posted in
these areas instruct you to do so. Hospitals or health care facilities may use
equipment that could be sensitive to external RF energy.
Vehicles
RF signals may affect improperly installed or inadequately shielded
electronic systems in motor vehicles. Check with the manufacturer or its
representative regarding your vehicle. You should also consult the
manufacturer of any equipment that has been added to your vehicle.
Posted Facilities
Turn your phone OFF in any facility where posted notices so require.
201
202
Safety
Aircraft
FCC regulations prohibit using your phone while in the air. Switch OFF your
phone before boarding an aircraft.
Blasting Areas
To avoid interfering with blasting operations, turn your phone OFF when in
a “blasting area” or in areas posted: “Turn off two-way radio”. Obey all
signs and instructions.
Potentially Explosive Atmosphere
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.
Areas with a potentially explosive atmosphere are often, but not always
marked clearly. Potential areas may include: fueling areas (such as gasoline
stations); below deck on boats; fuel or chemical transfer or storage
facilities; vehicles using liquefied petroleum gas (such as propane or
butane); areas where the air contains chemicals or particles (such as grain,
dust, or metal powders); and any other area where you would normally be
advised to turn off your vehicle engine.
For Vehicles Equipped with an Air Bag
An air bag inflates with great force. DO NOT place objects, including either
installed or portable wireless equipment, in the area over the air bag or in
the air bag deployment area. If in-vehicle wireless equipment is improperly
installed and the air bag inflates, serious injury could result.

also might cause deterioration of battery’s characteristics or cycle life.
• The battery pack has a protection circuit to prevent dangerous
malfunctions. Do not use your phone near places which may generate
more than 100V of static electricity because it could damage the
protection circuit. If the protection circuit’s damaged, the battery could
rupture, generate smoke, or catch on fire.
• When there is rust on the battery or if it gives off a bad or unusual odor
the first time you use it, do not use the equipment and bring the battery
to the shop where it was purchased.
• If your skin or clothing comes into contact with liquid from the battery,
wash your skin or clothing off with water, as the liquid may cause skin
inflammation. Remove the battery from the phone and do not use it.
• Do not handle the phone with wet hands while charging. It may cause an
electric shock or seriously damage your phone.
• Do not place or answer calls while charging the phone as it may shortcircuit the phone and/or cause electric shock or fire.
• The Charger Adapter and USB Cable are intended for indoor use only.
• Insert the battery pack charger into the wall power socket.
• Talking on your phone for an extended period of time may reduce call
quality due to heat generated during use.
• Do not use harsh chemicals (such as alcohol, benzene, thinners, etc.) or
detergents to clean your phone as this could cause a fire.
• Do not place or answer calls while charging the phone as it may shortcircuit the phone and/or cause electric shock or fire.
205
206
Safety
• Metallic articles (such as a coin, paperclip, or pen in your pocket or bag)
may short-circuit the battery terminals (metal strips on the battery) and
may damage the battery and cause an explosion.
• Never use an unapproved battery because it could potentially damage the
phone and/or battery and cause the battery to explode. Only use the
batteries and chargers provided by LG. The warranty will not be applied to
products provided by other suppliers. Only authorized personnel should
service the phone and its accessories. Faulty installation or service may
result in accidents and consequently invalidate the warranty.
Explosion, Shock, and Fire Hazards
• Do not put your phone in a place subject to excessive dust and keep the
minimum required distance between the USB Cable and heat sources.
• Unplug the USB Cable prior to cleaning your phone, and clean the power
plug pin when it’s dirty.
• When using the power plug, ensure that it’s firmly connected. If not, it
may cause excessive heat or fire.
• If you put your phone in a pocket or bag without covering the receptacle
of the phone (power plug pin), metallic articles (such as a coin, paperclip,
or pen) may short-circuit the phone and may cause an explosion. Always
cover the receptacle when not in use.
• Don’t short-circuit the battery. Metallic articles (such as a coin, paperclip,
or pen in your pocket or bag) or contact with sharp objects (including
animal teeth from biting it) may short-circuit the battery and cause an
explosion.
General Notice
• Using a damaged battery or placing a battery in your mouth (or allowing it
to get in an animal’s mouth) may cause serious injury including a fire or
explosion.
• Do not place items containing magnetic components such as a credit
card, phone card, bank book, or subway ticket near your phone. The
magnetism of the phone may damage the data stored in the magnetic
strip.
Safety
• Talking on your phone for a long period of time may reduce call quality
due to heat generated during use.
• When the phone is not used for a long period of time, store it in a safe
place with the USB Cable unplugged.
• Using the phone in proximity to receiving equipment (i.e., TV or radio)
may cause interference to the phone.
• Do not use the phone if the antenna is damaged. If a damaged antenna
contacts skin, it may cause a slight burn. Please contact an LG Authorized
Service Center to replace the damaged antenna.
• Do not immerse your phone in water, liquid, or expose to high humidity. If
this happens, turn it off immediately and remove the battery. Immediately
take it to an LG Authorized Service Center.
• Do not paint your phone.
• The data saved in your phone might be deleted due to careless use,
repair of the phone, or upgrade of the software. Please backup your
important phone numbers. (Ringtones, text messages, voice messages,
pictures, and videos could also be deleted.) The manufacturer is not liable
for damage due to the loss of data.
• When you use the phone in public places, set the ringtone to vibration so
you don’t disturb others.
• Do not turn your phone on or off when putting it to your ear.

Safety
FDA Consumer Update
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Devices
and Radiological Health Consumer Update on Mobile Phones:
1. Do wireless phones pose a health hazard?
The available scientific evidence does not show that any health problems
are associated with using wireless phones. There is no proof, however, that
wireless phones are absolutely safe. Wireless phones emit low levels of
Radio Frequency (RF) energy in the microwave range while being used.
They also emit very low levels of RF when in standby mode. Whereas high
levels of RF can produce health effects (by heating tissue), exposure to low
level RF that does not produce heating effects causes no known adverse
health effects. Many studies of low level RF exposures have not found any
biological effects. Some studies have suggested that some biological
effects may occur, but such findings have not been confirmed by additional
research. In some cases, other researchers have had difficulty in
reproducing those studies, or in determining the reasons for inconsistent
results.
2. What is the FDA’s role concerning the safety of wireless phones?
Under the law, the FDA does not review the safety of radiation-emitting
consumer products such as wireless phones before they can be sold, as it
does with new drugs or medical devices. However, the agency has
authority to take action if wireless phones are shown to emit Radio
Frequency (RF) energy at a level that is hazardous to the user. In such a
case, the FDA could require the manufacturers of wireless phones to notify
users of the health hazard and to repair, replace, or recall the phones so
that the hazard no longer exists.
Although the existing scientific data do not justify FDA regulatory actions,
the FDA has urged the wireless phone industry to take a number of steps,
including the following:
• Support needed research into possible biological effects of RF of the type
emitted by wireless phones;
Safety
• Design wireless phones in a way that minimizes any RF exposure to the
user that is not necessary for device function; and
• Cooperate in providing users of wireless phones with the best possible
information on possible effects of wireless phone use on human health.
The FDA belongs to an interagency working group of the federal agencies
that have responsibility for different aspects of RF safety to ensure
coordinated efforts at the federal level. The following agencies belong to
this working group:
• National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health
• Environmental Protection Agency
• Occupational Safety and Health Administration
• National Telecommunications and Information Administration
The National Institutes of Health participates in some interagency working
group activities, as well.
The FDA shares regulatory responsibilities for wireless phones with the
Federal Communications Commission (FCC). All phones that are sold in the
United States must comply with FCC safety guidelines that limit RF
exposure. The FCC relies on the FDA and other health agencies for safety
questions about wireless phones.
The FCC also regulates the base stations that the wireless phone networks
rely upon. While these base stations operate at higher power than do the
wireless phones themselves, the RF exposures that people get from these
base stations are typically thousands of times lower than those they can
get from wireless phones. Base stations are thus not the subject of the
safety questions discussed in this document.
3. What kinds of phones are the subject of this update?
The term “wireless phone” refers here to handheld wireless phones with
built-in antennas, often called “cell”, “mobile”, or “PCS” phones. These
types of wireless phones can expose the user to measurable Radio
Frequency (RF) energy because of the short distance between the phone
and the user’s head.
209
210
Safety
These RF exposures are limited by FCC safety guidelines that were
developed with the advice of the FDA and other federal health and safety
agencies. When the phone is located at greater distances from the user,
the exposure to RF is drastically lower because a person’s RF exposure
decreases rapidly with increasing distance from the source. The so-called
“cordless phones,” which have a base unit connected to the telephone
wiring in a house, typically operate at far lower power levels, and thus
produce RF exposures far below the FCC safety limits.
4. What are the results of the research done already?
The research done thus far has produced conflicting results, and many
studies have suffered from flaws in their research methods. Animal
experiments investigating the effects of Radio Frequency (RF) energy
exposures characteristic of wireless phones have yielded conflicting results
that often cannot be repeated in other laboratories. A few animal studies,
however, have suggested that low levels of RF could accelerate the
development of cancer in laboratory animals. However, many of the studies
that showed increased tumor development used animals that had been
genetically engineered or treated with cancer-causing chemicals so as to be
pre-disposed to develop cancer in the absence of RF exposure. Other
studies exposed the animals to RF for up to 22 hours per day. These
conditions are not similar to the conditions under which people use
wireless phones, so we do not know with certainty what the results of
such studies mean for human health. Three large epidemiology studies
have been published since December 2000. Between them, the studies
investigated any possible association between the use of wireless phones
and primary brain cancer, glioma, meningioma, or acoustic neuroma,
tumors of the brain or salivary gland, leukemia, or other cancers. None of
the studies demonstrated the existence of any harmful health effects from
wireless phone RF exposures. However, none of the studies can answer
questions about long-term exposures, since the average period of phone
use in these studies was around three years.
Safety
5. What research is needed to decide whether RF exposure from wireless
phones poses a health risk?
A combination of laboratory studies and epidemiological studies of people
actually using wireless phones would provide some of the data that are
needed. Lifetime animal exposure studies could be completed in a few
years. However, very large numbers of animals would be needed to provide
reliable proof of a cancer promoting effect if one exists. Epidemiological
studies can provide data that is directly applicable to human populations,
but ten or more years follow-up may be needed to provide answers about
some health effects, such as cancer. This is because the interval between
the time of exposure to a cancer-causing agent and the time tumors
develop — if they do — may be many, many years. The interpretation of
epidemiological studies is hampered by difficulties in measuring actual RF
exposure during day-to-day use of wireless phones. Many factors affect
this measurement, such as the angle at which the phone is held, or which
model of phone is used.
6. What is the FDA doing to find out more about the possible health
effects of wireless phone RF?
The FDA is working with the U.S. National Toxicology Program and with
groups of investigators around the world to ensure that high priority animal
studies are conducted to address important questions about the effects of
exposure to Radio Frequency (RF) energy.
The FDA has been a leading participant in the World Health Organization
International Electro Magnetic Fields (EMF) Project since its inception in
1996. An influential result of this work has been the development of a
detailed agenda of research needs that has driven the establishment of
new research programs around the world. The project has also helped
develop a series of public information documents on EMF issues.
The FDA and the Cellular Telecommunications & Internet Association (CTIA)
have a formal Cooperative Research And Development Agreement
(CRADA) to do research on wireless phone safety. The FDA provides the
scientific oversight, obtaining input from experts in government, industry,
and academic organizations. CTIA-funded research is conducted through
211
212
Safety
contracts with independent investigators. The initial research will include
both laboratory studies and studies of wireless phone users. The CRADA
will also include a broad assessment of additional research needs in the
context of the latest research developments around the world.
7. How can I find out how much Radio Frequency energy exposure I can
get by using my wireless phone?
All phones sold in the United States must comply with Federal
Communications Commission (FCC) guidelines that limit Radio Frequency
(RF) energy exposures. The FCC established these guidelines in
consultation with the FDA and the other federal health and safety agencies.
The FCC limit for RF exposure from wireless phones is set at a Specific
Absorption Rate (SAR) of 1.6 watts per kilogram (1.6 W/kg). The FCC limit’s
consistent with the safety standards developed by the Institute of Electrical
and Electronic Engineering (IEEE) and the National Council on Radiation
Protection and Measurement. The exposure limit takes into consideration
the body’s ability to remove heat from the tissues that absorb energy from
the wireless phone and is set well below levels known to have effects.
Manufacturers of wireless phones must report the RF exposure level for
each model of phone to the FCC. The FCC website (http://www.fcc.gov/
oet/rfsafety) gives directions for locating the FCC identification number on
your phone so you can find your phone’s RF exposure level in the online
listing.
8. What has the FDA done to measure the Radio Frequency energy
coming from wireless phones?
The Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) is developing a
technical standard for measuring the Radio Frequency (RF) energy
exposure from wireless phones and other wireless handsets with the
participation and leadership of FDA scientists and engineers. The standard,
“Recommended Practice for Determining the Spatial-Peak Specific
Absorption Rate (SAR) in the Human Body Due to Wireless
Communications Devices: Experimental Techniques”, sets forth the first
consistent test methodology for measuring the rate at which RF is
deposited in the heads of wireless phone users. The test method uses a
tissue-simulating model of the human head. Standardized SAR test
Safety
methodology is expected to greatly improve the consistency of
measurements made at different laboratories on the same phone. SAR is
the measurement of the amount of energy absorbed in tissue, either by the
whole body or a small part of the body. It’s measured in watts/kg (or
milliwatts/g) of matter. This measurement is used to determine whether a
wireless phone complies with safety guidelines.
9. What steps can I take to reduce my exposure to Radio Frequency
energy from my wireless phone?
If there is a risk from these products — and at this point we do not know
that there is — it’s probably very small. But if you’re concerned about
avoiding even potential risks, you can take a few simple steps to minimize
your exposure to Radio Frequency (RF) energy. Since time is a key factor in
how much exposure a person receives, reducing the amount of time spent
using a wireless phone will reduce RF exposure. If you must conduct
extended conversations by wireless phone every day, you could place more
distance between your body and the source of the RF, since the exposure
level drops off dramatically with distance. For example, you could use a
headset and carry the wireless phone away from your body or use a
wireless phone connected to a remote antenna. Again, the scientific data
does not demonstrate that wireless phones are harmful. But if you’re
concerned about the RF exposure from these products, you can use
measures like those described above to reduce your RF exposure from
wireless phone use.
10. What about children using wireless phones?
The scientific evidence does not show a danger to users of wireless
phones, including children and teenagers. If you want to take steps to
lower exposure to Radio Frequency (RF) energy, the measures described
above would apply to children and teenagers using wireless phones.
Reducing the time of wireless phone use and increasing the distance
between the user and the RF source will reduce RF exposure.
Some groups sponsored by other national governments have advised that
children be discouraged from using wireless phones at all. For example, the
government in the United Kingdom distributed leaflets containing such a
213
214
Safety
recommendation in December 2000. They noted that no evidence exists
that using a wireless phone causes brain tumors or other ill effects. Their
recommendation to limit wireless phone use by children was strictly
precautionary; it was not based on scientific evidence that any health
hazard exists.
11. What about wireless phone interference with medical equipment?
Radio Frequency (RF) energy from wireless phones can interact with some
electronic devices. For this reason, the FDA helped develop a detailed test
method to measure Electro Magnetic Interference (EMI) of implanted
cardiac pacemakers and defibrillators from wireless telephones. This test
method is now part of a standard sponsored by the Association for the
Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI). The final draft, a joint
effort by the FDA, medical device manufacturers, and many other groups,
was completed in late 2000. This standard will allow manufacturers to
ensure that cardiac pacemakers and defibrillators are safe from wireless
phone EMI.
The FDA has tested hearing aids for interference from handheld wireless
phones and helped develop a voluntary standard sponsored by the Institute
of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE). This standard specifies test
methods and performance requirements for hearing aids and wireless
phones so that no interference occurs when a person uses a “compatible”
phone and a “compatible” hearing aid at the same time. This standard was
approved by the IEEE in 2000.
The FDA continues to monitor the use of wireless phones for possible
interactions with other medical devices. Should harmful interference be
found to occur, the FDA will conduct testing to assess the interference and
work to resolve the problem.

Driving
Check the laws and regulations on the use of wireless phones in the areas
where you drive and always obey them. Also, if using your phone while
driving, please observe the following:
• Give full attention to driving -- driving safely is your first responsibility;
• Use hands-free operation, if available;
• Pull off the road and park before making or answering a call if driving
conditions or the law require it.
10 Driver Safety Tips
Your wireless phone gives you the powerful ability to communicate by
voice almost anywhere, anytime. An important responsibility accompanies
the benefits of wireless phones, one that every user must uphold.
When operating a car, driving is your first responsibility. When using your
wireless phone behind the wheel of a car, practice good common sense
and remember the following tips:
1. Get to know your wireless phone and its features such as speed dial and
redial. Carefully read your instruction manual and learn to take advantage
of valuable features most phones offer, including automatic redial and
memory. Also, work to memorize the phone keypad so you can use the
speed dial function without taking your attention off the road.
2. When available, use a hands-free device. A number of hands-free
wireless phone accessories are readily available today. Whether you
choose an installed mounted device for your wireless phone or a
215
216
Safety
speaker phone accessory, take advantage of these devices if available to
you.
3. Make sure you place your wireless phone within easy reach and where
you can reach it without removing your eyes from the road. If you get an
incoming call at an inconvenient time, if possible, let your voicemail
answer it for you.
4. Suspend conversations during hazardous driving conditions or situations.
Let the person you're speaking with know you're driving; if necessary,
suspend the call in heavy traffic or hazardous weather conditions. Rain,
sleet, snow, and ice can be hazardous, but so is heavy traffic. As a driver,
your first responsibility is to pay attention to the road.
5. Don’t take notes or look up phone numbers while driving. If you're
reading an address book or business card, or writing a “to-do” list while
driving a car, you're not watching where you're going. It's common
sense. Do not get caught in a dangerous situation because you're
reading or writing and not paying attention to the road or nearby
vehicles.
6. Dial sensibly and assess the traffic; if possible, place calls when you're
not moving or before pulling into traffic. Try to plan your calls before you
begin your trip or attempt to coincide your calls with times you may be
stopped at a stop sign, red light, or otherwise stationary. But if you need
to dial while driving, follow this simple tip -- dial only a few numbers,
check the road and your mirrors, then continue.
7. Do not engage in stressful or emotional conversations that may be
distracting. Stressful or emotional conversations and driving do not mix;
they are distracting and even dangerous when you're behind the wheel
of a car. Make people you're talking with aware you're driving and if
necessary, suspend conversations which have the potential to divert
your attention from the road.
8. Use your wireless phone to call for help. Your wireless phone is one of
the greatest tools you can own to protect yourself and your family in
dangerous situations -- with your phone at your side, help is only three
numbers away. Dial 911 or other local emergency number in the case of
fire, traffic accident, road hazard, or medical emergency. Remember, it’s
a free call on your wireless phone!
Safety
9. Use your wireless phone to help others in emergencies. Your wireless
phone provides you a perfect opportunity to be a “Good Samaritan” in
your community. If you see an auto accident, crime in progress or other
serious emergency where lives are in danger, call 911 or other local
emergency number, as you would want others to do for you.
10. Call roadside assistance or a special wireless non-emergency assistance
number when necessary. Certain situations you encounter while driving
may require attention, but are not urgent enough to merit a call for
emergency services. But you can still use your wireless phone to lend a
hand. If you see a broken-down vehicle posing no serious hazard, a
broken traffic signal, a minor traffic accident where no one appears
injured or a vehicle you know to be stolen, call roadside assistance or
other special non-emergency wireless number.
The above tips are meant as general guidelines. Before deciding to use
your phone while operating a vehicle, it’s recommended that you consult
your applicable jurisdiction’s local laws or other regulations regarding such
use. Such laws or other regulations may prohibit or otherwise restrict the
manner in which a driver may use his or her phone while operating a
vehicle.
Cautions
• The user interface of Google apps (Google Search, Google Maps,
Navigation, etc.) can vary depending on its software version.
• Locations are inaccurate when GPS and Wi-Fi are not set.
• With the Android operating system, some available Play Store apps only
operate correctly with phones that have a specific screen resolution.
