For Your Safety
Radio Frequency (RF) Energy
This model phone meets the government’s requirements for exposure to radio waves.
This phone is designed and manufactured not to exceed the emission limits for exposure to radio frequency
(RF) energy set by the Federal Communications Commission of the U.S. Government:
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 1.6W/kg. *Tests for SAR are conducted using
standard operating positions accepted by the FCC 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.
The highest SAR values for this model phone as reported to the FCC when tested for use at the ear and on
the body are:
Head: 1.41 W/kg, Body: 1.19 W/kg
(Body-worn measurements differ among phone models, depending upon available enhancements 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.
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
fccid/ after searching on FCC ID: Q78-Z665C.
For body-worn operation, this phone has been tested and meets the FCC RF exposure guidelines for use
with an accessory that contains no metal and positions the handset a minimum of 0.6 inches (1.5 cm)
from the body. Use of other enhancements may not ensure compliance with FCC RF exposure guidelines.
If you do not use a body-worn accessory and are not holding the phone at the ear, position the handset a
minimum of 0.6 inches (1.5 cm) from your body when the phone is switched on.
CAUTION: Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the manufacturer could void the user’s
authority to operate the equipment.
NOTE: This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device,
pursuant to part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against
harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio
frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful
interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a
particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception,
which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the
interference by one or more of the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
•Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
•Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.
•Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
Road Safety
•Do not expose your phone or its accessories to extreme temperatures, minimum 23° F and maximum
122° F (minimum -5° C and maximum +50° C).
•Please check local regulations for disposal of electronic products.
•Do not carry your phone in your back pocket as it could break when you sit down.
Small Children
Do not leave your phone and its accessories within the reach of small children or allow them to play with it.
They could hurt themselves or others, or could accidentally damage the phone.
Your phone contains small parts with sharp edges that may cause an injury or may become detached and
create a choking hazard.
Full attention must be given to driving at all times in order to reduce the risk of an accident. Using a phone
while driving (even with a hands-free kit) can cause distraction and lead to an accident. You must comply
with local laws and regulations restricting the use of wireless devices while driving.
Operating Machinery
Full attention must be given to operating the machinery in order to reduce the risk of an accident.
General Statement on Handling and Use
This phone, like any wireless phone, operates using radio signals, which cannot guarantee connection in all
conditions. Therefore, you must never rely solely on any wireless phone for emergency communications.
Loud Noise
This phone is capable of producing loud noises, which may damage your hearing. Turn down the volume
before using headphones, Bluetooth stereo headsets or other audio devices.
Phone Heating
Electrostatic Discharge (ESD)
Electrical Safety

Faulty and Damaged Products
Do not attempt to disassemble the phone or its accessories.
Only qualified personnel can service or repair the phone or its accessories.
If your phone or its accessory has been submerged in water, punctured, or subjected to a severe fall, do not
use it until you have taken it to be checked at an authorized service center.
*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.
You alone are responsible for how you use your phone and any consequences of its use.
You must always switch off your phone wherever the use of a phone is prohibited. Use of your phone is
subject to safety measures designed to protect users and their environment.
•Always treat your phone and its accessories with care and keep it in a clean and dust-free place.
•Do not expose your phone or its accessories to open flames or lit tobacco products.
•Do not expose your phone or its accessories to liquid, moisture, or high humidity.
•Do not drop, throw, or try to bend your phone or its accessories.
•Do not use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, or aerosols to clean the device or its accessories.
