Maintaining Safe Use of and Access to Your Phone
Do Not Rely on Your Phone for Emergency Calls
Mobile phones operate using radio signals, which cannot guarantee connection in all
conditions. Therefore you should never rely solely upon any mobile phone for essential
communication (e.g., medical emergencies). Emergency calls may not be possible on all
cellular networks or when certain network services or mobile phone features are in use.
Check with your local service provider for details.
Using Your Phone While Driving
Talking on your phone while driving (or operating the phone without a hands-free
device) is prohibited in some jurisdictions. Laws vary as to specific restrictions.
Remember that safety always comes first.
Important Safety Information
157
Following Safety Guidelines
To operate your phone safely and efficiently, always follow any special regulations in a
given area. Turn your phone off in areas where use is forbidden or when it may cause
interference or danger.
Medical Devices
If you have a medical device, including an implantable medical device such as a
pacemaker or defibrillator, consult your healthcare provider and the device
manufacturer’s directions before using this mobile phone.
Persons with implantable medical devices:
● Should always keep the mobile phone more than six (6) inches from the
implantable medical device when the mobile phone is turned ON.
● Should not carry the mobile phone in the breast pocket.
● Should use the ear opposite the implantable medical device to minimize the
potential for interference.
● Should turn OFF the mobile phone immediately if you have any reason to suspect
that interference is taking place.
Using Your Phone Near Other Electronic Devices
Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from radio frequency (RF) signals.
However, RF signals from wireless phones may affect inadequately shielded electronic
equipment.
RF signals may affect improperly installed or inadequately shielded electronic operating
systems or entertainment systems in motor vehicles. Check with the manufacturer or
their representative to determine if these systems are adequately shielded from
external RF signals. Also check with the manufacturer regarding any equipment that has
been added to your vehicle.
Consult the manufacturer of any personal medical devices, such as pacemakers and
hearing aids, to determine if they are adequately shielded from external RF signals.
Note: Always turn off the phone in healthcare facilities, and request permission before
using the phone near medical equipment.
Turning Off Your Phone Before Flying
Turn off your phone before boarding any aircraft. To prevent possible interference with
aircraft systems, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations require you
to have permission from a crew member to use your phone while the plane is on the
Important Safety Information
158
ground. To prevent any risk of interference, FCC regulations prohibit using your phone
while the plane is in the air.
Turning Off Your Phone in Dangerous Areas
To avoid interfering with blasting operations, turn your phone off when in a blasting
area or in other areas with signs indicating two-way radios should be turned off.
Construction crews often use remote-control RF devices to set off explosives.
Turn your phone off when you are in any area that has a potentially explosive
atmosphere. Although it’s rare, your phone and accessories could generate sparks.
Sparks can cause an explosion or fire, resulting in bodily injury or even death. These
areas 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.
● Areas where the air contains chemicals or particles such as grain, dust, or metal
powders.
● Any other area where you would normally be advised to turn off your vehicle’s
engine.
Note: Never transport or store flammable gas, flammable liquids, or explosives in the
compartment of your vehicle that contains your phone or accessories.
Restricting Children’s Access to Your Phone
Your phone is not a toy. Do not allow children to play with it as they could hurt
themselves and others, damage the phone or make calls that increase your invoice.
Waterproof Capability
Your Hydro LIFE is waterproof and meets IPX5 and IPX7 standards, immersible for up to
30 minutes at a depth not exceeding one meter (about 3.28 feet). Exposing your phone
to water outside these limits or not following the precautions can result in water
damage.
To ensure that your phone maintains waterproof capability, the following precautions
must be observed.
● Make sure the battery cover is properly sealed by squeezing around the edges of
the cover. The charger/accessory jack and headset jack ports do not have covers
because they are waterproof.
Important Safety Information
159
● Do not spray or immerse your phone in liquids other than fresh water or tap
water.
● Do not expose your phone to water heated in excess of 104°F (40°C), or to liquids
other than water, such as detergent, beverages, or chlorinated or treated water.
Should your phone be accidentally exposed to other liquids, rinse the phone
gently in clean fresh water.
● The touch panel and touch keys will not operate when the phone is wet.
● Your phone is inoperable under water and should be dried as quickly as possible
when wet.
● Do not use the charger/accessory jack for charging, data transmission, etc. until
the phone is completely dry.
If your phone gets wet:
Water lodged in the headset jack may cause the phone to falsely detect an inserted
headset (in which case the loudspeaker and/or earpiece audio will be disabled) until the
water is removed. Water in the microphone port may affect outbound audio quality.
These are temporary conditions and will subside once the phone is dry.
1. Do not open the battery door as this may allow water to get inside the sealed
portion of the phone.
2. Wipe the phone surfaces with a dry clean cloth.
3. Water in the phone’s open ports may affect sound quality and should be
removed with puffs of air directly into the ports. Phone audio may not operate
properly until ports are dry. Apply a dry clean cloth to the open areas and
crevices to remove the moisture left on the phone: microphones; speakers;
power button; volume button; headset jack; and charger/accessory jack.
4. Repeat the process until the phone is completely dry.
Charging
● Dry your phone with a clean cloth before charging.
● Do not touch the charger, charging cable, or charger/accessory jack with wet
hands. Doing so may cause electric shock, injury, or product failure.
● Do not charge your phone in a wet or damp place, such as in a bathroom or near
a kitchen sink.
Important Safety Information

Using Your Phone With a Hearing Aid Device
When some wireless phones are used with certain hearing devices (including hearing
aids and cochlear implants), users may detect a noise which can interfere with the
effectiveness of the hearing device.
Some hearing devices are more immune than others to this interference noise, and
phones also vary in the amount of interference noise they may generate. ANSI standard
C63.19 was developed to provide a standardized means of measuring both wireless
phone and hearing devices to determine usability rating categories for both.
Ratings have been developed for mobile phones to assist hearing device users in finding
phones that may be compatible with their hearing device. Not all phones have been
rated for compatibility with hearing devices. Phones that have been rated have a label
located on the box. Your Hydro LIFE has an M3 and a T3 rating.
These ratings are not guarantees. Results will vary depending on the user’s hearing
device and the individual’s type and degree of hearing loss. If a hearing device is
particularly vulnerable to interference noise; even a phone with a higher rating may still
cause unacceptable noise levels in the hearing device. Trying out the phone with your
hearing device is the best way to evaluate it for your personal needs.
M-Ratings: Phones rated M3 or M4 meet FCC requirements for hearing aid compatibility
and are likely to generate less interference to hearing devices than unrated phones. (M4
is the better/higher of the two ratings.)
T-Ratings: Phones 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
phones. (T4 is the better/higher of the two ratings. Note that not all hearing devices
have telecoils in them.)
Note: 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 or the
manufacturer of this phone for information on hearing aid compatibility. If you
have questions about return or exchange policies, consult your service provider
or phone retailer.
Hearing aid devices may also be measured for immunity to interference noise from
wireless phones and should have ratings similar to phones. Ask your hearing healthcare
professional for the rating of your hearing aid. Add the rating of your hearing aid and
your phone to determine probable usability:
Important Safety Information
161
● Any combined rating equal to or greater than six offers excellent use.
● Any combined rating equal to five is considered normal use.
● Any combined rating equal to four is considered usable.
Thus, if you pair an M3 hearing aid with an M3 phone, you will have a combined rating
of six for “excellent use.” This is synonymous for T ratings.
More information about hearing aid compatibility may be found at: www.fcc.gov,
www.fda.gov, and www.accesswireless.org.
Getting the Best Hearing Device Experience With Your Phone
To further minimize interference, move the phone around to find the point with least
interference.
Caring for the Battery
Protecting Your Battery
The guidelines listed below help you get the most out of your battery’s performance.
● Recently there have been some public reports of wireless phone batteries
overheating, catching fire, or exploding. It appears that many, if not all, of these
reports involve counterfeit or inexpensive, aftermarket-brand batteries with
unknown or questionable manufacturing standards. Use only manufacturerapproved batteries and accessories. Buying the right batteries and accessories is
the best way to ensure they’re genuine and safe.
● Only use the battery with a qualified charger. Use of an unqualified battery
charger may present a risk of fire, explosion, leakage, or other hazard. If you are
unsure about whether a charger is qualified, contact customer support.
● Do not disassemble or open, crush, bend or deform, or puncture or shred the
battery.
● Do not modify or remanufacture, attempt to insert foreign objects into the
battery, immerse or expose to water or other liquids, expose to fire, explosion, or
other hazard.
● Avoid dropping the phone or battery. If the phone or battery is dropped,
especially on a hard surface, and the user suspects damage, take it to a service
center for inspection.
● Improper battery use may result in a fire, explosion or other hazard.
● Do not short-circuit a battery or allow metallic conductive objects to contact
battery terminals.
Important Safety Information
162
● Keep the metal contacts on top of the battery clean.
● Battery usage by children should be supervised.
Charging
● In order to avoid damage, charge the battery only in temperatures that range
from 32° F to 113°(0° C to 45° C).
● Don’t use the battery charger in direct sunlight or in high humidity areas, such as
the bathroom.
● The battery may need recharging if it has not been used for a long period of time.
● It’s best to replace the battery when it no longer provides acceptable
performance. It can be recharged hundreds of times before it needs replacing.
● Replace the battery only with another qualified battery. Use of an unqualified
battery may present a risk of fire, explosion, leakage, or other hazard. If you are
unsure about whether a replacement battery is compatible, contact customer

Radio Frequency (RF) Energy
Understanding How Your Phone Operates
Your phone is a radio transmitter and receiver. When it’s turned on, it receives and
transmits radio frequency (RF) signals. Your phone is designed to transmit just enough
RF power to reach the network. The system handling your call controls the RF power
level. Depending on network conditions, your phone may operate at an actual SAR level
below the maximum value specified. Your phone is designed not to exceed the
recommended international guidelines for limits on RF exposure.
Knowing Radio Frequency Safety
The design of your phone complies with updated NCRP standards described below.
In 1991–92, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and the American
National Standards Institute (ANSI) joined in updating ANSI’s 1982 standard for safety
levels with respect to human exposure to RF signals.
More than 120 scientists, engineers and physicians from universities, government
health agencies and industries developed this updated standard after reviewing the
available body of research. In 1993, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)
adopted this updated standard in a regulation. In August 1996, the FCC adopted hybrid
standard consisting of the existing ANSI/IEEE standard and the guidelines published by
the National Council of Radiation Protection and Measurements (NCRP).
Body-Worn Operation
To maintain compliance with FCC RF exposure guidelines, always use an appropriate
accessory if using the phone for body worn operations. Accessories used with this phone
for body-worn operations must not contain any metallic components and must provide
at least 0.59 inches (1.5 centimeters) separation distance between the user’s body and
the phone, including antennas. Body worn accessories that do not meet these
requirements may not comply with FCC RF exposure requirements and should be
avoided.
For more information about RF exposure, visit the FCC website at www.fcc.gov.

Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) for Wireless Phones
The SAR value corresponds to the relative amount of RF energy absorbed into the head
of a user of a wireless handset.
The SAR value of a phone is the result of an extensive testing, measuring and calculation
process. It does not represent how much RF the phone emits. All phone models are
tested at their highest value in strict laboratory settings. But when in operation, the SAR
of a phone can be substantially less than the level reported to the FCC. This is because
of a variety of factors including its proximity to a base station antenna, phone design
and other factors. What is important to remember is that each phone meets strict
federal guidelines. Variations in SARs do not represent a variation in safety.
All phones must meet the federal standard, which incorporates a substantial margin of
safety. As stated above, variations in SAR values between different model phones do not
mean variations in safety. SAR values at or below the federal standard of 1.6 W/kg are
considered safe for use by the public.
The highest reported SAR values of the Hydro LIFE are:
Head: 1.02 W/kg
Body-worn: 0.69W/kg
Hotspot: 0.82 W/kg
Phone models may have different versions and more than one value. Changes in design
or components may occur over time and some changes could affect SAR values. More
information on the phone’s SAR can be found on the following FCC website:
http://www.fcc.gov/oet/ea/.
