THIS WIRELESS DEVICE MODEL MEETS GOVERNMENT REQUIREMENTS FOR EXPOSURE TO RADIO
WAVES WHEN USED AS DIRECTED IN THIS SECTION.
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.
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. 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 for each model.
The highest SAR value for your BlackBerry device model when tested for use at the ear is outlined as
follows:

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 that 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 the 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.
This BlackBerry device has been tested and rated for use with hearing aids for some of the wireless
technologies that the BlackBerry device uses. However, other wireless technologies may be used in this
BlackBerry device that have not been tested for use with hearing aids. It is important to try the different
features of your BlackBerry device thoroughly and in different locations to determine if you hear any
interfering noise when using this BlackBerry device with your hearing aid or cochlear implant. Consult your
wireless service provider about its return and exchange policies and for information about hearing aid
compatibility.
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 or higher of the
two ratings.
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
or 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 more information about the actions that the FCC has taken with regard to hearing aid compatibility with
wireless devices and other steps that the FCC has taken to ensure that individuals with disabilities have
access to telecommunications services, visit www.fcc.gov/cgb/dro.
