Specific absorption rate data
THIS WIRELESS DEVICE MODEL MEETS GOVERNMENT REQUIREMENTS FOR EXPOSURE TO
RADIO WAVES WHEN USED AS DIRECTED IN THIS SECTION.
The BlackBerry smartphone 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, Industry Canada of the Canadian
Government (IC), and recommended by The Council of the European Union when used as directed
in the previous section. 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 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*. The SAR limit recommended
by The Council of the European Union is 2.0W/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, IC, and The Council of the European Union 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, IC,
and The Council of the European Union for each model.
The highest SAR value for your BlackBerry smartphone model when tested for use at the ear is
outlined as follows:
Smartphone

This BlackBerry smartphone 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 Industry
Canada.
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 smartphone
without using a RIM approved carrying solution equipped with an integrated belt clip, see the holster
information in the "Accessories" section of this document. The highest reported body SAR value for
this BlackBerry smartphone when clipped on a belt, in a Research In Motion approved holster

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.
This BlackBerry smartphone supports the Turkish SMS characters as outlined in ETSI TS 123.038
V8.0.0 (or newer version code) and ETSI TS 123.040 V8.1.0 (or newer version code).
This BlackBerry smartphone is in conformity with Turkey’s AEEE Directive.

Legal notice
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 smartphone has been tested and rated for use with hearing aids for some of the
wireless technologies that the BlackBerry smartphone uses. However, other wireless technologies
may be used in this BlackBerry smartphone that have not been tested for use with hearing aids. It is
important to try the different features of your BlackBerry smartphone thoroughly and in different
locations to determine if you hear any interfering noise when using this BlackBerry smartphone 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.

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 .
