Additional safety information

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 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.In order to transmit data files or messages, this device requires a
good 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.


Pacemaker manufacturers recommend that a minimum separation of 15.3 centimeters
(6 inches) be maintained between a wireless phone and a pacemaker to avoid potential
interference with the pacemaker. These recommendations are consistent with the
independent research by and recommendations of Wireless Technology Research. Persons
with pacemakers should do the following:

Always keep the device more than 15.3 centimeters (6 inches) from the pacemaker

Not carry the device in a breast pocket

Hold the device to the ear opposite the pacemaker to minimize the potential for

If you suspect interference, switch off your device, and move the device away.

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, 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, 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 strength.

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


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. If the device is in offline or flight mode you must change the profile
to activate the phone function 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)


Your mobile device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed and manufactured not
to exceed the limits for exposure to radio frequency (RF) recommended by international
guidelines (ICNIRP). These limits are part of comprehensive guidelines and establish
permitted levels of RF energy for the general population. The guidelines were developed by
independent scientific organisations through periodic and thorough evaluation of scientific
studies. The guidelines include a substantial safety margin designed to assure the safety of
all persons, regardless of age and health.

The exposure standard for mobile devices employs a unit of measurement known as the
Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit stated in the international guidelines is 2.0
watts/kilogram (W/kg)*. Tests for SAR are conducted using standard operating positions
with the device 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
of the device while operating can be well below the maximum value. This is because the
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 base station, the lower the power
output of the device.

The highest SAR value for this device when tested for use at the ear is 0.52 W/kg.

SAR values may vary depending on national reporting and testing requirements and the
network band. Use of device accessories and enhancements may result in different SAR
values. Additional SAR information may be provided under product information at

* The SAR limit for mobile devices used by the public is 2.0 W/kg averaged over ten grams of
body tissue. The guidelines incorporate a substantial margin of safety to give additional
protection for the public and to account for any variations in measurements. SAR values

may vary depending on national reporting requirements and the network band. For SAR
