Radio Frequency (RF) Energy
Exposure to RF Energy
Your mobile device contains a transmitter and receiver. When it is ON, it receives
and transmits RF energy. When you communicate with your mobile device, the
system handling your call controls the power level at which your mobile device
Your mobile device is designed to comply with local regulatory requirements in your
country concerning exposure of human beings to RF energy.
RF Energy Operational Precautions
For optimal mobile device performance, and to be sure that human exposure to RF
energy does not exceed the guidelines set forth in the relevant standards, always
follow these instructions and precautions:
• When placing or receiving a phone call, hold your mobile device just like you
would a landline phone.
• If you wear the mobile device on your body, always place the mobile device in a
Motorola-supplied or approved clip, holder, holster, case, or body harness. If you
do not use a body-worn accessory supplied or approved by Motorola, keep the
mobile device and its antenna at least 2.5 centimeters (1 inch) from your body
when transmitting.
• Using accessories not supplied or approved by Motorola may cause your mobile
device to exceed RF energy exposure guidelines. For a list of Motorola-supplied
or approved accessories, visit our Web site at:
Specific Absorption Rate (IEEE)
RF Energy Interference/Compatibility
Your mobile device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed and
manufactured to not exceed limits for exposure to radio frequency (RF) energy set by
the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) of the U.S. Government and by the
Canadian regulatory authorities. 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 for the safety of all persons,
regardless of age or health, and to account for any variations in measurements.
The exposure standard for mobile devices employs a unit of measurement known as
the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR). The IEEE SAR limit set by the FCC and by the
Canadian regulatory authorities is 1.6 watts per kilogram (W/kg), averaged over one
gram of tissue. Tests for SAR are conducted using procedures accepted by the FCC
and by Industry Canada with the mobile device transmitting at its highest certified
power level in all tested frequencies. Although the SAR is determined at the highest
certified power level, the actual SAR level of the mobile device while operating can
be below the maximum value. This is because the mobile 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, the lower the
power output.
Before a mobile device is available for sale to the public in the U.S. and Canada, it
must be tested and certified to the FCC and Industry Canada that it does not exceed
the limit established by each government for safe exposure. The tests are performed
in positions and locations (e.g., at the ear and worn on the body) submitted to the
FCC and available for review by Industry Canada. The highest SAR value for this
mobile device when tested for use at the ear is 1.52 W/kg, and when worn on the
body, as described in this guide, is 1.53 W/kg. The SAR value for this mobile device
in its data transmission mode (body-worn use) is 0.16 W/kg. Body-worn
measurements can differ, depending upon available accessories and regulatory
Nearly every electronic device is subject to RF energy interference from external
sources if inadequately shielded, designed, or otherwise configured for RF energy
compatibility. In some circumstances, your mobile device may cause interference
with other devices.
Follow Instructions to Avoid Interference Problems
Turn off your mobile device in any location where posted notices instruct you to do
In an aircraft, turn off your mobile device whenever instructed to do so by airline
staff. If your mobile device offers an airplane mode or similar feature, consult airline
staff about using it in flight.
Implantable Medical Devices
If you have an implantable medical device, such as a pacemaker or defibrillator,
consult your physician before using this mobile device.
Persons with implantable medical devices should observe the following precautions:
• ALWAYS keep the mobile device more than 20 centimeters (8 inches) from the
implantable medical device when the mobile device is turned ON.
• DO NOT carry the mobile device in the breast pocket.
• Use the ear opposite the implantable medical device to minimize the potential
for interference.
• Turn OFF the mobile device immediately if you have any reason to suspect that
interference is taking place.
Read and follow the directions from the manufacturer of your implantable medical
device. If you have any questions about using your mobile device with your
implantable medical device, consult your healthcare provider.

your wireless service provider for details.
Your Location
Location-based information includes information that can be used to determine the
approximate location of a mobile device. Mobile devices which are connected to a
wireless network transmit location-based information. Devices enabled with GPS or
AGPS technology also transmit location-based information. Additionally, if you use
applications that require location-based information (e.g. driving directions), such
applications transmit location-based information. This location-based information
may be shared with third parties, including your wireless service provider,
applications providers, Motorola, and other third parties providing services.
Emergency Calls
When you make an emergency call, the cellular network may activate the AGPS
technology in your mobile device to tell the emergency responders your approximate
AGPS has limitations and might not work in your area. Therefore:
• Always tell the emergency responder your location to the best of your ability; and
• Remain on the phone for as long as the emergency responder instructs you.
Performance Tips
• Go outside and away from underground locations, covered vehicles, structures
with metal or concrete roofs, tall buildings, and foliage. Indoor performance
might improve if you move closer to windows, but some window sun shielding
films can block satellite signals.
• Move away from radios, entertainment equipment, and other electronic devices.
When using navigation features, note that mapping information, directions and
other navigational data may contain inaccurate or incomplete data. In some
countries, complete information may not be available. Therefore, you should visually
confirm that the navigational instructions are consistent with what you see. All
drivers should pay attention to road conditions, closures, traffic, and all other factors
that may impact driving. Always obey posted road signs.
Smart Practices While Driving
Check the laws and regulations on the use of mobile devices and their
accessories in the areas where you drive. Always obey them. The use of
these devices may be prohibited or restricted in certain areas—for
example, handsfree use only may be required. Go to (in English only) for more information.
Your mobile device lets you communicate by voice and data—almost anywhere,
anytime, wherever wireless service is available and safe conditions allow. When
driving a car, driving is your first responsibility. If you choose to use your mobile
device while driving, remember the following tips:
• Get to know your Motorola mobile device and its features such as speed
dial, redial and voice dial. If available, these features help you to place your
call without taking your attention off the road.
• When available, use a handsfree device. If possible, add an additional layer
of convenience to your mobile device with one of the many Motorola Original
handsfree accessories available today.
• Position your mobile device within easy reach. Be able to access your
mobile device without removing your eyes from the road. If you receive an
incoming call at an inconvenient time, if possible, let your voicemail answer it for
• Let the person you are speaking with know you are driving; if necessary,
suspend the call in heavy traffic or hazardous weather conditions. Rain,
sleet, snow, ice, and even heavy traffic can be hazardous.
• Do not take notes or look up phone numbers while driving. Jotting down a
“to do” list or going through your address book takes attention away from your
primary responsibility—driving safely.
• Dial sensibly and assess the traffic; if possible, place calls when your
car is not moving or before pulling into traffic. If you must make a call while
moving, dial only a few numbers, check the road and your mirrors, then continue.
• Do not engage in stressful or emotional conversations that may be
distracting. Make people you are talking with aware you are driving and
suspend conversations that can divert your attention away from the road.
Driving Safety
• Use your mobile device to call for help. Dial 911 or other local emergency
number in the case of fire, traffic accident, or medical emergencies (wherever
wireless phone service is available).
• Use your mobile device to help others in emergencies. If you see an auto
accident, crime in progress, or other serious emergency where lives are in
danger, call 911 or other local emergency number (wherever wireless phone
service is available), as you would want others to do for you.
• Call roadside assistance or a special non-emergency wireless
assistance number when necessary. If you see a broken-down vehicle
posing no serious hazard, a broken traffic signal, a minor traffic accident where
no one appears injured, or a vehicle you know to be stolen, call roadside
assistance or other special non-emergency wireless number (wherever wireless
phone service is available).
Privacy & Data Security
Motorola understands that privacy and data security are important to everyone.
Because some features of your mobile device may affect your privacy or data
security, please follow these recommendations to enhance protection of your
• Monitor access—Keep your mobile device with you and do not leave it where
others may have unmonitored access. Lock your device’s keypad where this
feature is available.
• Keep software up to date—If Motorola or a software/application vendor
releases a patch or software fix for your mobile device that updates the device’s
security, install it as soon as possible.
• Secure Personal Information—Your mobile device can store personal
information in various locations including your SIM card, memory card, and
phone memory. Be sure to remove or clear all personal information before you
recycle, return, or give away your device. You can also backup your personal data
to transfer to a new device.
Note: For information on how to backup or wipe data from your mobile device,
go to
• Online accounts—Some mobile devices provide a Motorola online account
(such as MOTOBLUR). Go to your account for information on how to manage the
Privacy & Data Security
account, and how to use security features such as remote wipe and device
location (where available).
• Applications—Install third party applications from trusted sources only.
Applications can have access to private information such as call data, location
details and network resources.
• Location-based information—Location-based information includes
information that can be used to determine the approximate location of a mobile
device. Mobile phones which are connected to a wireless network transmit
location-based information. Devices enabled with GPS or AGPS technology also
transmit location-based information. Additionally, if you use applications that
require location-based information (e.g. driving directions), such applications
transmit location-based information. This location-based information may be
shared with third parties, including your wireless service provider, applications
providers, Motorola, and other third parties providing services.
• Other information your device may transmit—Your device may also transmit
testing and other diagnostic (including location-based) information, and other
non-personal information to Motorola or other third-party servers. This
information is used to help improve products and services offered by Motorola.
If you have further questions regarding how the use of your mobile device may
impact your privacy or data security, please contact Motorola at, or contact your service provider.
Use & Care
Your mobile device is designed to resist damage from exposure to certain rugged
conditions, as stated in your product information. However, to help care for your
mobile device avoid prolonged or extreme exposure to those conditions and please
observe the following:
Use & Care
To help protect your mobile device, always make sure that the battery
compartment and any connector covers are closed and secure.
Don’t try to dry your mobile device using a microwave oven,
conventional oven, or dryer, as this may damage the mobile device.
To clean your mobile device, use only a dry soft cloth. Don’t use alcohol
or other cleaning solutions.
Mobile Devices & Accessories
Please do not dispose of mobile devices or electrical accessories (such
as chargers, headsets, or batteries) with your household waste, or in a
fire. These items should be disposed of in accordance with the national
collection and recycling schemes operated by your local or regional
authority. Alternatively, you may return unwanted mobile devices and electrical
accessories to any Motorola Approved Service Center in your region. Details of
Motorola approved national recycling schemes, and further information on Motorola
recycling activities can be found at:
Packaging & Product Guides
Product packaging and product guides should only be disposed of in accordance with
national collection and recycling requirements. Please contact your regional
authorities for more details.
California Perchlorate Label
Some mobile phones use an internal, permanent backup battery on the printed
circuit board that may contain very small amounts of perchlorate. In such cases,
California law requires the following label:
Perchlorate Material – special handling may apply when the battery is recycled or
disposed of. See
There is no special handling required by consumers.
Perchlorate Label
Hearing Aid Compatibility with Mobile
Some Motorola phones are measured for compatibility with hearing aids. If the box
for your particular model has “Rated for Hearing Aids” printed on it, the following
explanation applies.
When some mobile phones are used near some hearing devices (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 noise, and phones
also vary in the amount of interference they generate.
The wireless telephone industry has developed ratings for some of their mobile
phones, to assist hearing device users in finding phones that may be compatible
with their hearing devices. Not all phones have been rated. Phones that are rated
have the rating on their box or a label on the box. To maintain the published Hearing
Aid Compatibility (HAC) rating for this mobile phone, use only the original equipment
battery model.
The ratings are not guarantees. Results will vary depending on the user’s hearing
device and hearing loss. If your hearing device happens to be vulnerable to
interference, you may not be able to use a rated phone successfully. Trying out the
phone with your hearing device is the best way to evaluate it for your personal
M-Ratings: Phones rated M3 or M4 meet FCC requirements and are likely to
generate less interference to hearing devices than phones that are not labeled. 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.)
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 mobile phones.
