Additional safety information

Small children

Your device and its enhancements may contain small parts. Keep
them out of the reach of small children.

Operating environment

Remember to follow any special regulations in force in any area,
and always switch off your device when its use is prohibited or
when it may cause interference or danger. Use the device only in
its normal operating positions. This device meets RF exposure
guidelines when used either in the normal use position against
the ear or when positioned at least 2.2 centimeters (7/8 inch)
from the body. When a carry case, belt clip, or holder is used for
body-worn operation, it should not contain metal and should
position the device the above-stated distance from your body.

To transmit data files or messages, this device requires a quality
connection to the network. In some cases, transmission of data
files or messages may be delayed until such a connection is
available. Ensure the above separation distance instructions are
followed until the transmission is completed.

Parts of the device are magnetic. Metallic materials may be
attracted to the device. Do not place credit cards or other

magnetic storage media near the device, because information
stored on them may be erased.

Medical devices

Operation of any radio transmitting equipment, including
wireless phones, may interfere with the functionality of
inadequately protected medical devices. Consult a physician or
the manufacturer of the medical device to determine if they are
adequately shielded from external RF energy or if you have any
questions. Switch off your device in health care facilities when
any regulations posted in these areas instruct you to do so.
Hospitals or health care facilities may be using equipment that
could be sensitive to external RF energy.

Implanted medical devices

Manufacturers of medical devices recommend that a minimum
separation of 15.3 centimeters (6 inches) should be maintained
between a wireless device and an implanted medical device, such
as a pacemaker or implanted cardioverter defibrillator, to avoid
potential interference with the medical device. Persons who have
such devices should:

Always keep the wireless device more than 15.3 centimeters
(6 inches) from the medical device when the wireless device is
turned on.

Not carry the wireless device in a breast pocket.

Hold the wireless device to the ear opposite the medical
device to minimize the potential for interference.

Turn the wireless device off immediately if there is any reason
to suspect that interference is taking place.

Read and follow the directions from the manufacturer of their
implanted medical device.

If you have any questions about using your wireless device with
an implanted medical device, consult your health care provider.

Hearing aids

Some digital wireless devices may interfere with some hearing
aids. If interference occurs, consult your service provider.


RF signals may affect improperly installed or inadequately
shielded electronic systems in motor vehicles such as electronic
fuel injection systems, electronic antiskid (antilock) braking
systems, electronic speed control systems, and air bag systems.
For more information, check with the manufacturer, or its
representative, of your vehicle or any equipment that has been

Only qualified personnel should service the device or install the
device in a vehicle. Faulty installation or service may be
dangerous and may invalidate any warranty that may apply to

the device. Check regularly that all wireless device equipment in
your vehicle is mounted and operating properly. Do not store or
carry flammable liquids, gases, or explosive materials in the same
compartment as the device, its parts, or enhancements. For
vehicles equipped with an air bag, remember that air bags inflate
with great force. Do not place objects, including installed or
portable wireless equipment in the area over the air bag or in the
air bag deployment area. If in-vehicle wireless equipment is
improperly installed and the air bag inflates, serious injury could

Using your device while flying in aircraft is prohibited. Switch off
your device before boarding an aircraft. The use of wireless
teledevices in an aircraft may be dangerous to the operation of
the aircraft, disrupt the wireless telephone network, and may be

Potentially explosive environments

Switch off your device when in any area with a potentially
explosive atmosphere, and obey all signs and instructions.
Potentially explosive atmospheres include areas where you would
normally be advised to turn off your vehicle engine. Sparks in
such areas could cause an explosion or fire resulting in bodily
injury or even death. Switch off the device at refueling points
such as near gas pumps at service stations. Observe restrictions
on the use of radio equipment in fuel depots, storage, and

distribution areas; chemical plants; or where blasting operations
are in progress. Areas with a potentially explosive atmosphere are
often, but not always, clearly marked. They include below deck on
boats, chemical transfer or storage facilities, vehicles using
liquefied petroleum gas (such as propane or butane), and areas
where the air contains chemicals or particles such as grain, dust,
or metal powders.

Emergency calls

Important: Wireless phones, including this device,
operate using radio signals, wireless networks, landline
networks, and user-programmed functions. Because of
this, connections in all conditions cannot be
guaranteed. You should never rely solely on any wireless
device for essential communications like medical

To make an emergency call:

1. If the device is not on, switch it on. Check for adequate signal


Some networks may require that a valid SIM card is properly
inserted in the device.

2. Press the end key as many times as needed to clear the display

and ready the device for calls.

3. Enter the official emergency number for your present

location. Emergency numbers vary by location.

4. Press the call key.

If certain features are in use, you may first need to turn those
features off before you can make an emergency call. Consult this
guide or your service provider for more information.

When making an emergency call, give all the necessary
information as accurately as possible. Your wireless device may
be the only means of communication at the scene of an accident.
Do not end the call until given permission to do so.

Certification information (SAR)

This mobile device meets guidelines for exposure to radio

Your mobile device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is
designed not to exceed the limits for exposure to radio waves
recommended by international guidelines. These guidelines were
developed by the independent scientific organization ICNIRP and
include safety margins designed to assure the protection of all
persons, regardless of age and health.

The exposure guidelines for mobile devices employ a unit of
measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate or SAR. The
SAR limit stated in the ICNIRP guidelines is 2.0 watts/kilogram
(W/kg) averaged over 10 grams of tissue. Tests for SAR are

conducted using standard operating positions with the device
transmitting at its highest certified power level in all tested
frequency bands. The actual SAR level of an operating device can
be below the maximum value because the device is designed to
use only the power required to reach the network. That amount
changes depending on a number of factors such as how close you
are to a network base station. The highest SAR value under the
ICNIRP guidelines for use of the device at the ear is 0.98 W/kg.

Use of device accessories and enhancements may result in
different SAR values. SAR values may vary depending on national
reporting and testing requirements and the network band.
