Guidelines for Safe and Efficient Use
Since its introduction in the mid 1980s the mobile phone has been
one of the most exciting and innovative products ever developed.
Your phone can help you to stay in touch with your office, your
home, emergency services and others.
Safety
In August, 1996, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)
adopted RF exposure guidelines with safety levels for handheld
wireless phones. Those guidelines are consistent with the safety
standards previously set by both US and international standards
bodies:
• ANSI C95.1 (1992)*
co
m
m
• NCRP Report 86 (1986)*
r
o
tf
• ICNIRP (1996)*
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).

Phone Operation
NORMAL POSITION: Hold the phone as you would any other
telephone with the antenna pointed up and over your shoulder.
TIPS ON EFFICIENT OPERATION: For your phone to operate
most efficiently:
• Extend your antenna fully (where applicable).
• Do not 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.
Guidelines for Safe and Efficient Use
Driving
Electronic Devices
Check the laws and regulations on the use of wireless telephones in
the areas where you drive. Always obey them. Also, if using your
phone while driving, please:
• Give full attention to driving – driving safely is your first
responsibility.
Pacemakers
• Use handsfree operation, if available.
• Pull off the road and park before making or answering a call if
driving conditions so require.
In addition, Ericsson suggests the following safe driving tips if you
are using your phone while driving:
• Get to know your wireless phone and its features such as speed
dial and redial.
• Position your wireless phone within easy
reach.
• Suspend conversations during hazardous
driving conditions or situations.

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 pacemaker. These recommendations are
consistent with the independent research by and recommendations
of Wireless Technology Research.
E
e
Persons with pacemakers:
• Should ALWAYS keep the phone more than six 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.
• If you have any reason to suspect that interference is taking
place, turn your phone OFF immediately.
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).
• Call roadside assistance or a special wireless non-emergency
assistance number when necessary.

Other Medical Devices
Potentially Explosive Atmospheres
If you use any other personal medical device, consult the
manufacturer of your device to determine if it is adequately shielded
from external RF energy. Your physician may be able to assist you in
obtaining this information.
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 be using 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.

New Batteries
The battery packaged with your phone is not fully charged. For
maximum battery capacity, use your charger to condition the battery.
Recycling Your Battery
Your phone manufacturer is a member of the Rechargeable Battery
Recycling Corporation (RBRC), a non-profit service organization
designed to assist in the recycling of rechargeable batteries. Many
areas require the recycling of rechargeable batteries. In the U.S., call
1-800-822-8837 to find out how to recycle your battery. Outside the
U.S., contact your local retailer for recycling instructions.
Battery Use and Care
A rechargeable battery has a long service life if treated properly.
A new battery, or one that has not been used for a long period of
time, should be conditioned before using your phone. Avoid
recharging a fully-charged or almost fully-charged battery. If your
phone shuts off due to low battery power, you should charge the
battery within 24 hours for the battery to reach full capacity.
5
• Do not leave your battery where it may be subjected to
extremely hot or cold temperatures. This could reduce the
battery’s capacity.
• Do not let the metal contacts on the battery touch another
metal object such as keys in your pocket. This could shortcircuit and damage the battery.
• Do not attempt to take a battery apart.
• Do not expose a battery to open flame. This could cause the
battery to explode.
• Turn your phone OFF before removing the battery.
• Use only the AC/DC adapter supplied with your battery
charger. Using a different adapter could be dangerous and will
void your phone warranty.
• Do not allow the battery to be placed into the mouth. Battery
electrolytes may be toxic if swallowed.

Mobile phones emit low levels of radiofrequency energy
(i.e., radiofrequency radiation) in the microwave range while being
used. They also emit very low levels of radiofrequency energy (RF),
considered non-significant, when in the stand-by mode. It is well
known that high levels of RF can produce biological damage
through heating effects (this is how your microwave oven is able to
cook food). However, it is not known whether, to what extent, or
through what mechanism, lower levels of RF might cause adverse
health effects as well. Although some research has been done to
address these questions, no clear picture of the biological effects of
this type of radiation has emerged to date. Thus, the available science
does not allow us to conclude that mobile phones are absolutely safe,
or that they are unsafe. However, the available scientific evidence
does not demonstrate any adverse health effects associated with the
use of mobile phones.

Why the concern?

What kinds of phones are in question?
Questions have been raised about hand-held mobile phones, the
kind that have a built-in antenna that is positioned close to the user’s
head during normal telephone conversation. These types of mobile
phones are of concern because of the short distance between the
phone’s antenna – the primary source of the RF
– and the person’s head. The exposure to RF from mobile phones in
which the antenna is located at greater distances from the user
(on the outside of a car, for example) is drastically lower than that
from hand-held phones, because a person’s RF exposure decreases
rapidly with distance from the source. The safety of so-called
“cordless phones,” which have a base unit connected to the
telephone wiring in a house and which operate at far lower power
levels and frequencies, has not been questioned.
Guidelines for Safe and Efficient Use
How much evidence is there that hand-held mobile
phones might be harmful?
Briefly, there is not enough evidence to know for sure, either way;
however, research efforts are on-going. The existing scientific
evidence is conflicting and many of the studies that have been done
to date have suffered from flaws in their research methods. Animal
experiments investigating the effects of RF exposures characteristic
of mobile phones have yielded conflicting results.
A few animal studies, however, have suggested that low levels of RF
could accelerate the development of cancer in laboratory animals. In
one study, mice genetically altered to be predisposed to developing
one type of cancer developed more than twice as many such cancers
when they were exposed to RF energy compared to controls. There is
much uncertainty among scientists about whether results obtained
from animal studies apply to the use of mobile phones. First, it is
uncertain how to apply the results obtained in rats and mice to
humans. Second, many of the studies that showed increased tumor
development used animals that had already been treated with cancercausing chemicals, and other studies exposed the animals to the RF
virtually continuously
– up to 22 hours per day.

For the past five years in the United States, the mobile phone
industry has supported research into the safety of mobile phones.
This research has resulted in two findings in particular that merit
additional study:
o
f
t
o
c
r
1 In a hospital-based, case-control study, researchers looked for an
association between mobile phone use and either glioma
(a type of brain cancer) or acoustic neuroma (a benign tumor of
the nerve sheath). No statistically significant association was found
between mobile phone use and acoustic neuroma. There was also
no association between mobile phone use and gliomas when all

c
In
types of types of gliomas were considered together.
It should be noted that the average length of mobile phone
exposure in this study was less than three years.
n
o
s
When 20 types of glioma were considered separately, however, an
association was found between mobile phone use and one rare
type of glioma, neuroepithelliomatous tumors. It is possible with
multiple comparisons of the same sample that this association
occurred by chance. Moreover, the risk did not increase with how
often the mobile phone was used, or the length of the calls. In fact,
the risk actually decreased with cumulative hours of mobile phone
use. Most cancer causing agents increase risk with increased
exposure. An ongoing study of brain cancers by the National
Cancer Institute is expected to bear on the accuracy and
repeatability of these results.1
E
e
s
c
i
r
2 Researchers conducted a large battery of laboratory tests to assess
the effects of exposure to mobile phone RF on genetic material.
These included tests for several kinds of abnormalities, including
mutations, chromosomal aberrations, DNA strand breaks, and
structural changes in the genetic material of blood cells called
lymphocytes. None of the tests showed any effect of the RF except
for the micronucleus assay, which detects structural effects on the
genetic material. The cells in this assay showed changes after
exposure to simulated cell phone radiation, but only after 24
hours of exposure. It is possible that exposing the test cells to
radiation for this long resulted in heating. Since this assay is
known to be sensitive to heating, heat alone could have caused the
abnormalities to occur. The data already in the literature on the
response of the micronucleus assay to RF are conflicting. Thus,
follow-up research is necessary.2
7
FDA is currently working with government, industry, and
academic groups to ensure the proper follow-up to these industryfunded research findings. Collaboration with the Cellular
Telecommunications Industry Association (CTIA) in particular is
expected to lead to FDA providing research recommendations and
scientific oversight of new CTIA-funded research based on such
recommendations.
Two other studies of interest have been reported recently in the
literature:
1 Two groups of 18 people were exposed to simulated mobile phone
signals under laboratory conditions while they performed cognitive
function tests. There were no changes in the subjects’ ability to
recall words, numbers, or pictures, or in their spatial memory, but
they were able to make choices more quickly in one visual test
when they were exposed to simulated mobile phone signals. This
was the only change noted among more than 20 variables
compared.3
o
c
r
m
m
In summary, we do not have enough information at this point to
assure the public that there are, or are not, any low incident health
problems associated with use of mobile phones. FDA continues to
work with all parties, including other federal agencies and industry,
to assure that research is undertaken to provide the necessary answers
to the outstanding questions about the safety of mobile phones.

Some people who have used mobile phones have been diagnosed
with brain cancer. But it is important to understand that this type of
cancer also occurs among people who have not used mobile phones.
In fact, brain cancer occurs in the U.S. population at
a rate of about 6 new cases per 100,000 people each year. At that
rate, assuming 80 million users of mobile phones (a number
increasing at a rate of about 1 million per month), about 4800 cases
of brain cancer would be expected each year among those
80 million people, whether or not they used their phones. Thus it is
not possible to tell whether any individual’s cancer arose because of
the phone, or whether it would have happened anyway. A key
question is whether the risk of getting a particular form of cancer is
greater among people who use mobile phones than among the rest of
the population. One way to answer that question is to compare the
usage of mobile phones among people with brain cancer with the use
of mobile phones among appropriately matched people without brain
cancer. This is called a case-control study.
s
u
l
a
i
c
er
2 In a study of 209 brain tumor cases and 425 matched controls,
there was no increased risk of brain tumors associated with mobile
phone use. When tumors did exist in certain locations, however,
they were more likely to be on the side of the head where the
mobile phone was used. Because this occurred in only a small
number of cases, the increased likelihood was too small to be
statistically significant.4

What is known about cases of human cancer that have
been reported in users of hand-held mobile phones?
E

c

r

o
s
The current case-control study of brain cancers by the National
Cancer Institute, as well as the follow-up research to be sponsored by
industry, will begin to generate this type of information.
What is FDA’s role concerning the safety of mobile
phones?
Under the law, FDA does not review the safety of radiation-emitting
consumer products such as mobile phones before marketing, as it
does with new drugs or medical devices. However, the agency has
authority to take action if mobile phones are shown to emit radiation
at a level that is hazardous to the user. In such a case, FDA could
require the manufacturers of mobile phones to notify users of the
Guidelines for Safe and Efficient Use
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 at this time, FDA has urged the mobile phone industry to
take a number of steps to assure public safety. The agency has
recommended that the industry:
• support needed research into possible biological effects of RF of
the type emitted by mobile phones;
• design mobile phones in a way that minimizes any RF exposure to
the user that is not necessary for device function; and
• cooperate in providing mobile phone users with the best
possible information on what is known about possible effects of
mobile phone use on human health.
s
u
l
a
i
c
er
At the same time, FDA belongs to an interagency working group of
the federal agencies that have responsibility for different aspects of
mobile phone safety to ensure a coordinated effort at the federal
level. These agencies are:
• National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health
m
m
• Environmental Protection Agency
• Federal Communications Commission
co
• Occupational Health and Safety Administration
r
o
f
• National Telecommunications and Information Administration
The National Institutes of Health also participates in this group.

In the absence of conclusive information about any
possible risk, what can concerned individuals do?
If there is a risk from these products – and at this point we do not
know that there is – it is probably very small. But if people are
concerned about avoiding even potential risks, there are simple steps
they can take to do so. For example, time is a key factor in how
much exposure a person receives. Those persons who spend long
periods of time on their hand-held mobile phones could consider
holding lengthy conversations on conventional phones and reserving
the hand-held models for shorter conversations or for situations
when other types of phones are not available.
E
e
s
c
i
r
n
o
s
People who must conduct extended conversations in their cars every
day could switch to a type of mobile phone that places more distance
between their bodies and the source of the RF, since the exposure
level drops off dramatically with distance. For example, they could
switch to:
• a mobile phone in which the antenna is located outside the
vehicle,
• a hand-held phone with a built-in antenna connected to
a different antenna mounted on the outside of the car or built
into a separate package, or
• a headset with a remote antenna to a mobile phone carried at
the waist.
Again, the scientific data do not demonstrate that mobile phones are
harmful. But if people are concerned about the radiofrequency
energy from these products, taking the simple precautions outlined
above can reduce any possible risk.

Message Services
Text messages and voice mail are the two types of message services
your Ericsson mobile phone can support. The message services are
provided by your service provider and subject to availability.
Emergency messages are always shown before urgent and normal
messages, regardless of the order in which the messages were
received.
Text Message Service
Your phone can store a maximum of 2KB of message text in its
memory. The messages can be classified by the sender using one of
the following message types: Normal, Urgent, and Emergency. A text
message can also contain one or more callback numbers - phone
numbers specified by the person leaving the message.

Data, Fax, and Internet Calls
Your Ericsson mobile phone contains a modem similar to the
modems you use to connect your computer to your home or office
telephone service. Rather than connecting to standard telephone
lines, however, the modem in your mobile phone allows you to
connect your computer to the mobile telephone system. In places
where mobile network operators provide the necessary support, you
can use your mobile phone to send or receive faxes, upload or
download data files, or access the Internet. This chapter will assist
you with setting up your computer and phone to handle data, fax,
and Internet calls on the mobile network.
Note!

Data calls are placed to exchange computer files between two
computers. While the data connection is in place, files can be
transferred between the connected computers, according to the
capabilities of the software in use. When a data call is made, the
connection will remain in place until it is closed by one of the
computers involved. To make or receive data calls with your
Ericsson mobile phone, you must have a properly configured
communications program running on your computer.

Fax calls are placed to send fax messages. When a fax message has
been sent, your fax software or the originating fax machine will
terminate the call. To make or receive fax calls with your Ericsson
mobile phone, you must have a properly configured fax program
running on your computer.
Internet Calls
Internet calls are placed to Internet Service Providers (ISP) when you
want to use e-mail or access websites on the World Wide Web. To
make Internet calls, you must have an account with an ISP and a
properly configured Internet access program (browser) running on
your computer. When your software is installed and set up to dial
your ISP, calls can be made using the normal dialing procedure.
Once a connection to your ISP is established, it will remain in place
until you disconnect or until it is automatically disconnected due to
the degradation of signal quality or due to inactivity.
Data, Fax, and Internet Calls

Problems You Can Solve
us
1 The phone does not turn On.
Charge or replace the battery.
2 The phone is not ringing when a call is received.
Check the SOUNDS menu to make sure the phone is not set for
Phone Silent. If your phone is not set for Phone Silent, check
Call Screening to make sure that Call Screening has not been
selected for a particular Phone Group.
3 The phone becomes warm during long calls.
This is not a problem. Because of its size, the phone may feel
slightly warm during extended calls.
4 The battery does not seem to charge to full capacity.
Condition the battery by fully discharging and charging it three
times. Or, if your phone came with a desktop charger, use the conditioning function on the desktop charger to condition the battery.
65
5 Calls are being dropped.
You are probably in a geographic area with minimal service. Wait
until the signal strength indicator in your phone's display shows a
high relative signal strength (more bars) before trying a call. Make
note of geographic locations where calls are dropped and contact
your service provider.
6 The signal strength varies.
This is a common occurrence. Transmitters are set in geographic
areas and coverage is not 100% all of the time. Signal strength varies as you travel between cells.
If you need additional information or assistance, or would like to
purchase Original Ericsson Accessories: in the U.S.A., call
1-800-ERICSSON (374-2776).
