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

This device meets RF exposure guidelines when used either in the normal use position
against the ear or when positioned at least 1.5 centimetres (5/8 inches) away 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
centimetres (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 centimetres (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 minimise 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 added.

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 result.

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 illegal.

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 refuelling
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 and areas where the air contains chemicals or particles such as grain, dust, or metal
powders. You should check with the manufacturers of vehicles using liquefied petroleum gas
(such as propane or butane) to determine if this device can be safely used in their vicinity.

Emergency calls

Important: This device operates using radio signals, wireless networks, landline
networks, and user-programmed functions. If your device supports voice calls over
the internet (internet calls), activate both the internet calls and the cellular phone.
The device will attempt to make emergency calls over both the cellular networks
and through your internet call provider if both are activated. Connections in all
conditions cannot be guaranteed. You should never rely solely on any wireless
device for essential communications like medical emergencies.

To make an emergency call:

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

your device, you may also need to complete the following:

Insert a SIM card if your device uses one.

Remove certain call restrictions you have activated in your device.

Change your profile from offline or flight profile mode to an active profile.

2. Press the end key as many times as needed to clear the display and ready the device for


3. Enter the official emergency number for your present location. Emergency numbers vary

by location.

4. Press the call key.

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 waves.

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 0.91 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.
