Safety and use......................
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 areas.
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.
12.2.2 FOTA Upgrade
Using FOTA Upgrade tool you can update your phone's software.
You are advised to switch off the telephone from time to time to

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.
Please note that your phone is a unibody device, the back cover and
battery are not removable. Do not attempt to disassemble your

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.

- 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

user's sole responsibility to ensure that prior authorisation be obtained,
if necessary, in order to record private or confidential conversations
or take a photograph of another person; the manufacturer, the seller
or vendor of your mobile phone (including the operator) disclaim any
liability which may result from the improper use of the mobile phone.
Please note your phone is a unibody device, the back cover and battery
are not removable. Observe the following precautions:
- Do not attempt to open the back cover,
- Do not attempt to eject, replace and open battery,
- Do not punctuate the back cover of your phone,
- Do not burn or dispose of your phone in household rubbish or store
it at temperature above 60°C.
Phone and battery as a unibody device must be disposed of in accordance
with locally applicable environmental regulations.
This symbol on your telephone, the battery and the
accessories means that these products must be taken to
collection points at the end of their life:
- Municipal waste disposal centres with specific bins for these
items of equipment
- Collection bins at points of sale.
They will then be recycled, preventing substances being disposed of in the
environment, so that their components can be reused.
2013-8-5 14:28:45
In European Union countries:
These collection points are accessible free of charge.
All products with this sign must be brought to these collection points.
In non European Union jurisdictions:
Items of equipment with this symbol are not to be thrown into ordinary
bins if your jurisdiction or your region has suitable recycling and
collection facilities; instead they are to be taken to collection points for
them to be recycled.
Mains powered chargers will operate within the temperature range of:
0°C to 40°C.
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 only.
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 W/kg.
IP4696_6040D_QG_Eng_GB_20_130805.indd 30-31
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:
Maximum SAR for this model and conditions under which it
was recorded.
Head SAR
GSM 900 + Bluetooth + Wi-Fi
0.264 W/kg
Body-worn SAR
UMTS 2100 + Bluetooth + Wi-Fi
0.584 W/kg
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
10 mm. 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 10 mm away
from the body.
