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.
EXPOSURE TO RADIO FREQUENCY SIGNALS
Your wireless handheld portable telephone is a low power radio transmitter and receiver. When
it is ON, it receives and also 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) *
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
(C951).
The design of your phone complies with the FCC guidelines (and those standards).
1: American National Standards Institute.
2: National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements.
3: International Commission on Nonionizing Radiation Protection.
ANTENNA SAFETY
Use only the supplied or an approved replacement antenna. Unauthorized antennas, modifications,
or attachments could impair call quality, damage the phone, or result in violation of FCC
regulations. Please contact your local dealer for replacement antenna.
Do not use the phone with a damaged antenna. If a damaged antenna comes into contact with the
skin, a minor burn may result. Please contact your local dealer for replacement antenna.
DRIVING SAFETY
Talking on the phone while driving is extremely dangerous and is illegal in some states. Remember,
safety comes first. Check the laws and regulations on the use of phones 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.
• Use hands-free operation, if available.
• Pull off the road and park before making or answering a call, if driving conditions so require.
If you must use the phone while driving, please use one-touch, speed dialing, and auto answer
modes.
An airbag inflates with great force. DO NOT place objects, including both installed or portable
wireless equipment, in the area over the airbag or in the air bag deployment area. If in-vehicle
wireless equipment is improperly installed and the air bag inflates, serious injury could result.
WARNING: Failure to follow these instructions may lead to serious personal injury and possible
property damage.
ELECTRONIC DEVICES
Your wireless handheld portable telephone is a low power radio transmitter and receiver. When
it is ON, it receives and also sends out radio frequency (RF) signals. Most modern electronic
equipment is shielded from RF energy. However, certain electronic equipment may not be shielded
against the RF signals from your wireless phone. Therefore, use of your phone must be restricted
in certain situations.
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 pacemaker. These recommendations are consistent with the independent research by
and recommendations of Wireless Technology Research. Persons with pacemakers:
• ALWAYS keep the phone more than six inches from your pacemaker when the phone is
turned on.
• Do not carry the phone in a breast pocket.
• 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).
OTHER MEDICAL DEVICES
If you use any other personal medical device, consult the manufacturer of your device to determine
if they are adequately shielded from external RF energy.
Your physician may be able to assist you in obtaining this information. Turn your phone OFF in
healthcare facilities when any regulations posted in these areas instruct you to do so. Hospitals or
healthcare 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.
POSTED FACILITIES
Turn your phone OFF where posted notices so require.
OTHER SAFETY GUIDELINES
AIRCRAFT
FCC regulations prohibit using your phone while in the air. Turn your phone OFF before boarding
an aircraft. Always request and obtain prior consent and approval of an authorized airline
representative before using your phone aboard an aircraft.
Always follow the instructions of the airline representative whenever using your phone aboard an
aircraft, to prevent any possible interference with airborne electronic equipment.
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.
75
76
POTENTIALLY EXPLOSIVE ATMOSPHERES
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, clearly marked. They
include fueling areas such as gas 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’s engine.
PRECAUTIONS
Your Handheld Portable Telephone is a high quality piece of equipment. Before operating, read all
instructions and cautionary markings on (1) USB AC Adapter (2) Battery and (3) Product Using
Battery.
Failure to follow the directions below could result in serious bodily injury and/or property damage
due to battery liquid leakage, fire or rupture.
• DO NOT use this equipment in an extreme environment where high temperature or high
humidity exists.
• DO NOT abuse the equipment. Avoid striking, shaking or shocking. When not using, lay down
the unit to avoid possible damage due to instability.
• DO NOT expose this equipment to rain or spilled beverages.
• DO NOT use unauthorized accessories.
• DO NOT disassemble the phone or its accessories. If service or repair is required, return unit
to an authorized cellular service center. If unit is disassembled, the risk of electric shock or fire
may result.
• DO NOT short-circuit the battery terminals with metal items etc.
SAFETY INFORMATION FOR FCC RF EXPOSURE
WARNING! READ THIS INFORMATION BEFORE USING
CAUTIONS
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 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.
BODY-WORN OPERATION
This device was tested for typical body-worn operations with the back of the phone kept 2 cm.
from the body. To maintain compliance requirements, use only belt-clips, holsters or similar
accessories that maintain a 2 cm separation distance between the user’s Body and the back of the
phone, including the antenna.
The use of belt-clips, holsters and similar accessories should not contain metallic components in its
assembly. The use of accessories that do not satisfy these requirements may not comply with FCC
RF exposure requirements, and should be avoided.
For more information about RF exposure, please visit the FCC website at http://www.fcc.gov
77
SAR INFORMATION
THIS MODEL PHONE MEETS THE GOVERNMENT’S
REQUIREMENTS FOR EXPOSURE TO RADIO WAVES.
Your wireless phone is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed and manufactured not
to exceed the emission limits for exposure to radiofrequency (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 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 with the phone 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 phone while operating can be well below the maximum value. This is because the phone 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 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 0.747 W/Kg and when worn on the body, as described in this
user guide, is 0.832 W/Kg. (Body-worn measurements differ among phone models, depending upon
available accessories and FCC requirements). While there may be differences between the SAR
levels of various phones and at various positions, they all meet the government requirement for
safe exposure.
The SAR testing for Body-worn operation was performed with a belt clip that provided a 2 cm
separation. The User’s Manual indicates that any holsters/clips used with this device should contain
no metallic components.
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this model phone with all reported SAR
levels evaluated as in compliance with the FCC RF exposure 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/ea after searching on JYCBLADE.
Additional information on Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) can be found on the Cellular
Telecommunications Industry Association (CTIA) web-site at http://www.ctia.org.
* 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.

HEARING AID COMPATIBILITY (HAC) FOR WIRELESS
TELECOMMUNICATIONS DEVICES
OUR COMMITMENT
We believe that all of our customers should be able to enjoy the benefits of digital wireless
technologies. We are committed to providing a selection of compatible devices for our customers
who wear hearing aids.
THIS PHONE HAS A HAC RATING OF M3/T3
WHAT IS HEARING AID COMPATIBILITY?
The Federal Communications Commission has implemented rules and a rating system designed to
enable people who wear hearing aids to more effectively use these wireless telecommunications
devices. The standard for compatibility of digital wireless phones with hearing aids is set forth
in American National Standard Institute (ANSI) standard C63.19. There are two sets of ANSI
standards with ratings from one to four (four being the best rating): an “M” rating for reduced
interference making it easier to hear conversations on the phone when using the hearing aid
microphone, and a “T” rating that enables the phone to be used with hearing aids operating in the
telecoil mode thus reducing unwanted background noise.
HOW WILL I KNOW WHICH WIRELESS PHONES ARE
HEARING AID COMPATIBLE?
The Hearing Aid Compatibility rating is displayed on the wireless phone box.
A phone is considered Hearing Aid Compatible for acoustic coupling (microphone mode) if it has an
“M3” or “M4” rating. A digital wireless phone is considered Hearing Aid Compatible for inductive
coupling (telecoil mode) if it has a “T3” or “T4” rating.
This phone has been tested and rated for use with hearing aids for some of the wireless
technologies that it uses. However, there may be some newer wireless technologies used in this
phone that have not been tested yet for use with hearing aids. It is important to try the different
features of this phone thoroughly and in different locations, using your hearing aid or cochlear
implant, to determine if you hear any interfering noise. Consult your service provider about its
return and exchange policies and for information on hearing aid compatibility.
HOW WILL I KNOW IF MY HEARING AID WILL WORK
WITH A PARTICULAR DIGITAL WIRELESS PHONE?
You’ll want to try a number of wireless phones so that you can decide which works the best with
your hearing aids. You may also want to talk with your hearing aid professional about the extent
to which your hearing aids are immune to interference, if they have wireless phone shielding, and
whether your hearing aid has a HAC rating.

FDA CONSUMER UPDATE
U.S. FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION - CENTER FOR
DEVICES AND RADIOLOGICAL
HEALTH CONSUMER UPDATE ON WIRELESS 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 radiofrequency energy (RF) in the microwave range while being used.
They also emit very low levels of RF when in the idle 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 FDA’s role concerning the safety of wireless phones?
Under the law, 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 radiofrequency energy
(RF) at a level that is hazardous to the user. In such a case, 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, 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;
• 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.
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
• Federal Communications Commission
• Occupational Safety and Health Administration
• National Telecommunications and Information Administration
The National Institutes of Health participates in some inter-agency working group activities, as
well. 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. FCC relies on FDA and other health agencies for safety questions
about wireless phones. FCC also regulates the base stations that the wireless phone net works 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
80
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 hand-held wireless phones with built-in antennas, often
called “cell,” “mobile,” or “PCS” phones. These types of wireless phones can expose the user to
measurable radiofrequency energy (RF) because of the short distance between the phone and
the user’s head. These RF exposures are limited by Federal Communications Commission safety
guidelines that were developed with the advice of 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 radiofrequency
energy (RF) 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 predisposed 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 don’t 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 neu-roma, 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.
6. What is FDA doing to find out more about the possible health effects of wireless
phone RF?
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 radiofrequency energy (RF). FDA has been a leading
participant in the World Health Organization International Electromagnetic 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. FDA and the Cellular Telecommunications & Internet Association (CTIA) have a formal
Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) to do research on wireless phone
safety. FDA provides the scientific oversight, obtaining input from experts in government, industry,
and academic organizations. CTIA-funded research is conducted through contracts to 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 radiofrequency 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 radiofrequency energy (RF) exposures. FCC established these guidelines
in consultation with FDA and the other federal health and safety agencies. The FCC limit for RF
exposure from wireless telephones is set at a Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) of 1.6 watts per
kilogram (1.6 W/kg). The FCC limit is 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.fda.gov (under “c” in the
subject index, select Cell Phones > Research)) 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.
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 10 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.
8. What has FDA done to measure the radiofrequency energy coming from wireless
phones?
The Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) is developing a technical standard for
measuring the radiofrequency energy (RF) 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 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 is
measured in watts/kg (or milliwatts/g) of matter. This measurement is used to determine whether
a wireless phone complies with safety guidelines.
81
82
9. What steps can I take to reduce my exposure to radiofrequency 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 is probably
very small. But if you are concerned about avoiding even potential risks, you can take a few simple
steps to minimize your exposure to radiofrequency energy (RF). 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 do not demonstrate
that wireless phones are harmful. But if you are 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 radiofrequency energy (RF), 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 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?
Radiofrequency energy (RF) from wireless phones can interact with some electronic devices. For
this reason, FDA helped develop a detailed test method to measure electromagnetic 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 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. 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
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. FDA continues to monitor
the use of wireless phones for possible interactions with other medical devices. Should harmful
interference be found to occur, FDA will conduct testing to assess the interference and work to
resolve the problem.

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.
• 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 are 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 noise-cancelling 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.
