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) 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.

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:

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
minimise the potential for interference.

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 emergencies.

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 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)


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 organiation
ICNIRP and inculde safty 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 at
the ear is 0.82 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. Additional SAR information may be provided under
