Section 6. Health and Safety Information
This section outlines the safety precautions associated with
using the device.
Important safety precautions
Please read the safety and operation instructions before
using your device or any accessories that came with it. Retain
these instructions for future use.
• Do not install your device in your vehicle or use it
while driving. Using your device while driving could
put you and others at greater risk of an accident
causing serious injury, death, and property loss. You
are responsible for knowing and obeying the laws and
regulations regarding the use of wireless devices in
the areas where you drive.
• Do not use your device or accessories near water (for
example, near a bathtub or a sink, in a wet basement,
or near a swimming pool) or spill liquid of any kind on
your device or accessories as this might cause a short
circuit, a fire, or an electric shock which could cause
serious injury, death, and property loss.
• Do not use your device in the presence of gas fumes
as it presents a risk of fire or explosion.
• Do not use or store your device in extreme
temperatures as your device might overheat and may
present a burn and fire risk and cease to function.
• Do not dispose of your device in a fire as this might
cause an explosion resulting in serious injury, death,
and property loss.
• Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and Federal
Communications Commission (FCC) regulations
prohibit using the radio of wireless devices while
in the air. Turn off all wireless connections on your
device before boarding an aircraft. Using your device
on an aircraft might affect aircraft instrumentation,
communication, and performance; might disrupt
the network; might otherwise be dangerous to the
operation of the aircraft, its crew, and its passengers;
and might be illegal.
84
• When listening to audio files using headphones,
permanent hearing loss might occur if headphones
are used at a high volume. Avoid increasing the volume
of your headphones to block out noisy surroundings. If
you experience ringing in your ears or muffled speech,
consult a physician to have your hearing checked.
• Do not disassemble your device. Your device contains
small parts that might be a choking hazard.
• Most modern electronic equipment is shielded
from radio frequency (RF) signals. However, certain
electronic equipment might not be shielded against
the RF signals from your device. Keep your device
away from medical devices, including pacemakers and
hearing aids, as they might malfunction and cause
serious injury or death to you and others.
• Turn off all wireless connections on 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.
• Certain jurisdictions might prohibit or restrict your
use of certain features on your device.
Additional safety guidelines
About charging
• Use only the charger supplied with your device. Use of
another type of charger will result in malfunction and/
or danger.
• Do not use the charger in a high moisture
environment. Never touch the charger when your
hands or feet are wet.
• Allow adequate ventilation around the charger when
using it to operate the device or charge the battery.
Do not cover the charger with paper or other objects
that will reduce cooling. Do not use the charger while
it is inside a carrying case.
• Connect the charger to a proper power source. The
voltage requirements are found on the product case
and/or packaging.
• Do not use the charger if the cord becomes damaged.
• Do not attempt to service the unit. There are no
serviceable parts inside. Replace the unit if it is
damaged or exposed to excess moisture.
85
About the battery
This unit contains a non-replaceable internal Lithium
Ion battery. The battery can burst or explode, releasing
hazardous chemicals. To reduce the risk of fire or burns, do
not disassemble, crush, puncture, or dispose of in fire or
water.
For those host devices that utilize a USB port as a charging
source, the host device’s User Guide shall include a
statement that the phone shall only be connected to CTIA
certified adapters, products that bear the USB-IF logo
or products that have completed the USB-IF compliance
program.
Only use the battery with a charging system that has
been qualified with the system per CTIA Certification
Requirements for Battery System Compliance to IEEE 1725.
Use of an unqualified battery or charger may present a risk
of fire, explosion, leakage, or other hazard.
Important instructions (for service personnel only)
Do not short circuit a battery or allow metallic conductive
objects to contact battery terminals.
- Use the battery only in the specified equipment.
Caution: Risk of explosion if battery is replaced by an
incorrect type. Dispose of used batteries according to the
instructions.
- The battery must be recycled or disposed of properly.
Replace the battery only with another battery that has been
qualified with the system per this standard, IEEE-Std-1725.
Use of an unqualified battery may present a risk of fire,
explosion, leakage or other hazard. Only authorized service
providers shall replace battery.
Promptly dispose of used batteries in accordance with local
regulations.
Battery usage by children should be supervised
86
Caring for your device
Taking good care of your device will ensure trouble-free
operation and reduce the risk of damage to your device:
• Keep your device away from excessive moisture and
extreme temperatures.
• Do not place anything on top of your device or drop
objects on your device.
• Do not drop your device or subject it to severe shock.
• Do not subject your device to sudden and severe
temperature changes. This could cause moisture
condensation inside the unit, which could damage your
device. In the event of moisture condensation, allow
your device to dry out completely before use.
• The screen surface can easily be scratched. Avoid
touching it with sharp objects. Nonadhesive generic
screen protectors designed specifically for use on
portable devices with LCD panels may be used to help
protect the screen from minor scratches.
• Never attempt to disassemble, repair or make
any modifications to your device. Disassembly,
modification or any attempt at repair could cause
damage to your device and even bodily injury or
property damage and will void any warranty.
• Do not store or carry flammable liquids, gases or
explosive materials in the same compartment as your
device, its parts or accessories.
• Do not expose your device to extreme heat or direct
sunlight for prolonged periods. Overheating may
damage your device.
• Do not use alcohol or any abrasive material when
cleaning the accessories.
• Do not expose the accessories to extreme heat or
direct sunlight for prolonged periods.
• Store the accessories in a cool and dry place.
• Never clean your device when it is turned on. Use
a soft, lint-free cloth to wipe the screen and the
exterior of your device.
• Do not use paper towels to clean the screen.

RF Exposure Information (SAR)
This device meets the government’s requirements for
exposure to radio waves.
This device is designed and manufactured not to exceed the
emission limits for exposure to radio frequency (RF) energy
set by the Federal Communications Commission of the U.S.
Government.
The exposure standard for wireless device employs a unit
of measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or
SAR. The SAR limit set by the FCC is 1.6 W/kg. *Tests for SAR
are conducted using standard operating positions accepted
by the FCC 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 level 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 poser required to reach the network. In general, the
closer you are to a wireless base station antenna, the lower
the power output.
The highest SAR value for the model device as reported to
the FCC when tested is 0.83 W/kg as described in this user
guide.
While there may be differences between the SAR levels of
various devices and at various positions, they all meet the
government requirement.
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this
model device with all reported SAR levels evaluated as
in compliance with the FCC RF exposure guidelines. SAR
information on this model device is on file with the FCC and
can be found under the Display Grant section of
www.fcc.gov/oet/ea/fccid
For body worn operation, this device has been tested
and meets the FCC RF exposure guidelines for use with
an accessory that contains no metal and be positioned a
minimum of 0 cm from the body. Use of other accessories
may not ensure compliance with FCC RF exposure guidelines.
