■ Medical devices
Operation of any radio transmitting equipment, including wireless
devices, 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
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.
Some digital wireless devices may interfere with some hearing
aids. If interference occurs, consult your service provider.
Warning: For hearing aid compatibility, you must turn
off the Bluetooth connectivity.
Your mobile device model complies with FCC rules governing
hearing aid compatibility. These rules require an M3 microphone
or higher value. The M-value, shown on the device box, refers to
lower radio frequency (RF) emissions. A higher M-value generally
indicates that a device model has a lower RF emissions level,
which may improve the likelihood that the device will operate
with certain hearing aids. Some hearing aids are more immune
than others to interference. Please consult your hearing health
professional to determine the M-rating of your hearing aid and
whether your hearing aid will work with this device.
This device includes a setting for direct connection to telecoil-
equipped hearing aids. When both the telecoil hearing aid
(Tswitch) and the phone telecoil are activated, using the device
with the aided ear will provide a direct connection for audio
through your hearing aid. The quality of sound depends on the
type of hearing aid used. You should test the device with the
telecoil setting activated to determine whether your audio
performance improves. Using the telecoil hearing-aid setting
consumes additional battery power.

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 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 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 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 RUIM card if your device uses one.
Remove certain call restriction you have activated in
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 calls.
3. Enter the official emergency number for your present
location. Emergency numbers vary by location.
4. Press the call key.

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 0.94 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 product information at
Your mobile device is also designed to meet the requirements for
exposure to radio waves established by the Federal Communications
Commission (USA) and Industry Canada. These requirements set a
SAR limit of 1.6 W/kg averaged over one gram of tissue. The highest
SAR value reported under this standard during product
certification for use at the ear is 1.5 W/kg and when properly
worn on the body is 0.67 W/kg.
