Compliance information
Exposure to radio frequency signals
The BlackBerry® device radio is a low power radio transmitter and receiver. When the BlackBerry
device radio is turned on, it receives and also sends out radio frequency (RF) signals. The
BlackBerry device is designed to comply with Federal Communications Commission (FCC),
13
Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications (MIC), and Industry Canada (IC) guidelines
respecting safety levels of RF exposure for wireless devices, which in turn are consistent with
the following safety standards previously set by Canadian, U.S., and international standards
bodies:
• ANSI/IEEE C95.1, 1999, American National Standards Institute/Institute of Electrical
and Electronics Engineers Standard for Safety Levels with Respect to Human Exposure
to Radio Frequency Electromagnetic Fields, 3 kHz to 300 GHz
• National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements (NCRP) Report 86, 1986,
Biological Effects and Exposure Criteria for Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Fields
• Health Canada, Safety Code 6, 1999, Limits of Human Exposure to Radiofrequency
Electromagnetic Fields in the Frequency Range from 3 kHz to 300 GHz
• International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP), 1998,
Guidelines for Limiting Exposure to Time-Varying Electric, Magnetic, and
Electromagnetic fields (up to 300 GHz)
• MIC, 2001, Article 14-2 of the Ordinance for Regulating Radio Equipment
To maintain compliance with FCC and IC RF exposure guidelines when you carry the BlackBerry
device on your body, use only accessories equipped with an integrated belt clip that are supplied
or approved by Research In Motion (RIM), or accessories that contain no metallic components
and provide a separation distance from the body of at least 0.98 inches (25 mm). Use of
accessories that are not expressly approved by RIM might violate FCC and IC RF exposure
guidelines and might void any warranty applicable to the BlackBerry device. If you do not use
a body-worn accessory equipped with an integrated belt clip supplied or approved by RIM when
you carry the BlackBerry device, keep the device at least 0.98 inches (25 mm) from your body
when the BlackBerry device is turned on and connected to a wireless network. When using any

14
inches (25 mm) from your body. If you use a body-worn accessory not supplied by RIM when
you carry the BlackBerry device, verify that the accessory does not contain metal and keep the
BlackBerry device at least 0.98 inches (25 mm) from your body when the BlackBerry device is
turned on and connected to a wireless network.
Specific absorption rate data
THIS WIRELESS DEVICE MODEL MEETS GOVERNMENT REQUIREMENTS FOR EXPOSURE TO
RADIO WAVES.
The BlackBerry® device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed and manufactured not
to exceed the emission limits for exposure to radio frequency (RF) energy set by the Federal
Communications Commission (FCC) of the U.S. Government and Industry Canada of the
Canadian Government (IC). 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 devices employs a unit of measurement known as the Specific
Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit set by the FCC/IC is 1.6W/kg*. Tests for SAR are
conducted using standard operating positions specified by the FCC/IC with the device
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 device while
operating can be well below the maximum value. This is because the device 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.
15
Before a wireless device model is available for sale to the public, it must be tested and certified
to the FCC and IC that it does not exceed the limit established by the government-adopted
requirement for safe exposure under the recommendations of the International Commission on
Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP). The tests are performed in positions and locations
(for example, at the ear and worn on the body) as required by the FCC and IC and for each model.
The highest SAR value for each device model when tested for use at the ear is outlined below:
Device
1 g SAR (W/kg)
BlackBerry® 8703e smartphone
1.44
The highest reported SAR value for this BlackBerry device when clipped on a belt, in a Research
In Motion (RIM) approved holster equipped with an integrated belt clip, is outlined below.
Carrying solutions, including RIM approved carrying solutions and carrying solutions not
approved by RIM, that do not come equipped with an integrated belt clip SHOULD NOT be worn
or carried on the body. For more information regarding the wearing or carrying of this BlackBerry
device without using a RIM approved carrying solution equipped with an integrated belt clip,
see the Holster information in the "Additional safety guidelines" section of this document.

Body-worn measurements differ among wireless device and phone models, depending upon
available accessories and FCC and IC requirements.
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this wireless device model with all reported
SAR levels evaluated as in compliance with the FCC RF emission guidelines. SAR information
on this wireless device model is on file with the FCC and can be found under the Display Grant
section of www.fcc.gov/oet/ea after searching on FCC ID L6ARBF20CW. Additional information
on Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) can be found on the CTIA - The Wireless Association® web
site at www.ctia.org.
___________________________________
* In the United States and Canada, the SAR limit for mobile devices used by the public is 1.6
watts/kg (W/kg) averaged over 1 gram of tissue for the body or head (4.0 W/kg averaged over
10 grams of tissue for the extremities - hands, wrists, ankles and feet). The standard incorporates
a substantial margin of safety to give additional protection for the public and to account for any
variations in measurements.
The long-term characteristics or the possible physiological effects of Radio Frequency
Electromagnetic fields have not been evaluated by Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL).

US Information Concerning the Federal Communications
Commission ("FCC") Requirements for Hearing Aid Compatibility
with Wireless Devices
When wireless devices are used near hearing devices (such as 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, and wireless devices also vary in the amount of
interference they generate.
The wireless telephone industry has developed ratings to assist hearing device users in finding
wireless devices that may be compatible with their hearing devices. Not all wireless devices
have been rated. Wireless devices that are rated will have the rating displayed on their box
together with other relevant approval markings.
The ratings are not guarantees. Results will vary depending on the user's hearing device and
hearing loss. If your hearing device is vulnerable to interference, you may not be able to use a
rated wireless device successfully.
Consulting with your hearing health professional and testing the wireless device with your
hearing device is the best way to evaluate it for your personal needs.
How the ratings work
M-Ratings: Wireless devices rated M3 or M4 meet FCC requirements and are likely to generate
less interference to hearing devices than wireless devices that are not labeled. M4 is the better/
higher of the two ratings.
19
T-Ratings: Wireless devices 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 wireless
devices. T4 is the better/higher of the two ratings. (Note that not all hearing devices have
telecoils in them.)
Hearing devices may also be measured for immunity to this type of interference. Your hearing
device manufacturer or hearing health professional may help you find results for your hearing
device. The more immune your hearing aid is, the less likely you are to experience interference
noise from wireless devices.
For additional information about the FCC's actions with regard to hearing aid compatible
wireless devices and other steps the FCC has taken to ensure that individuals with disabilities
have access to telecommunications services, please go to www.fcc.gov/cgb/dro.
Industry Canada certification
This BlackBerry® device complies with Industry Canada RSS 102, RSS 132, RSS 133, and RSS 210,
under certification number 2503A-RBF20CW.
Class B compliance
This BlackBerry® device complies with the Class B limits for radio noise emissions as set out in
the interference-causing equipment standard entitled “Digital Apparatus,” ICES-003 of
