WARNING! Encryption is irreversible. The only way to revert to
an unencrypted phone is to perform a factory data reset, which
erases all your data.
Encryption provides additional protection in case your phone is
stolen, and may be required in some organisations.
Before turning on encryption, prepare as follows:
1.
Set a lock screen PIN or password.
2.
Connect your phone to the charger to charge your battery.

The encryption process may take up to one hour. If you
interrupt the process you may lose data or your phone can
end up in an unusable state.
When you're ready to proceed:

phone.

107
Radio Frequency (RF) Exposure
Specific Absorption Rate (SAR)
Your mobile phone is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is
designed not to exceed the limits for exposure to radio waves
recommended by international guidelines, EN50360. These
guidelines were developed by the independent scientific
organisation ICNIRP and include safety margins designed to
assure the protection of all persons, regardless of age and
health.
The guidelines use a unit of measurement known as Specific
Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit for mobile devices is 2
W/kg and the highest SAR value for this device is 1.354W/Kg.
The SAR result is measured at the device’s highest transmitting
power. Normally the actual SAR of this device is below that
indicated above because the power level is reduced depending
on the network conditions and coverage.
Limiting Exposure to Radio Frequency
Present scientific information does not indicate the need for any
special precautions for the use of mobile phones. If individuals
are concerned, they can limit their own or their children’s RF
exposure by limiting the length of calls, or using ‘hands-free’
devices to keep mobile phones away from the head and body.
Further information on this subject can be obtained from the
World Health Organisation at http://who.int/peh-emf
108
Normal Use Position
Wrapping your hand around the whole device can block the
antenna which will reduce your coverage, call quality, data rates
and battery life. Use a light, open hand grip to prevent blocking
the antenna, this will also reduce your RF exposure:
Antenna
Antenna
Driving
Full attention must be given to driving at all times in order to
reduce the risk of an accident. Using a phone while driving (even
with a hands free kit) can cause distraction and lead to an
accident. You must comply with local laws and regulations
restricting the use of wireless devices while driving.
Air Bags
Do not place a phone in the area over an air bag or in the air bag
deployment area as an airbag inflates with great force and
serious injury could result.
Store the phone safely before driving your vehicle.
109
General Statements on Handling and Use
You alone are responsible for how you use your phone and any
consequences of its use.
You must always switch off your phone wherever the use of a
phone is prohibited. Use of your phone is subject to safety
measures designed to protect users and their environment.
•
•
Always treat your phone and its accessories with care.
•
Do not expose your phone or its accessories to liquid,
moisture or high humidity.
•
Do not drop, throw or try to bend your phone or its
accessories.
•
Do not use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, or aerosols to
clean the device or its accessories.
•
•
Do not paint your phone or its accessories.
•
Do not expose your phone or its accessories to extreme
temperatures, minimum -5 and maximum + 45 degrees
Celsius.
•
Please check local regulations for disposal of electronic
products.
•
Do not carry your phone in your back pocket as it can get
damaged when you sit down.
Do not expose your phone or its accessories to open flames
or lit tobacco products.
Do not attempt to disassemble your phone or its accessories,
only authorised personnel can do so.
110
Small Children
Do not leave your phone and its accessories within the reach of
small children or allow them to play with it.
They could hurt themselves or others, or could accidentally
damage the phone.
Your phone contains small parts and sharp edges may cause an
injury or may become detached and create a choking hazard.
If you forget your PIN, Pattern or Password
If you forget your unlock pattern, PIN or password you have to
hard reset your device. From the locked idle screen, touch
Emergency call, then enter the code *983*987# and follow the
instructions. All data is erased.
Demagnetisation
Your handset contains magnets so keep it away from magnetic
media such as credit cards and hard drives.
Seizures/Blackouts
The phone can produce a bright or flashing light. A small
percentage of people may be susceptible to blackouts or
seizures (even if they have never had one before) when exposed
to flashing lights or light patterns such as when playing games or
watching video. If you have experienced seizures or blackouts or
have a family history of such occurrences, please consult a
physician.
111
Repetitive Strain Injuries
To minimise the risk of Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) when texting
or playing games with your phone:
• Do not grip the phone too tightly.
• Press the buttons and screen lightly.
• Use features designed to minimise repeated pressing of
buttons such as Message Templates and Predictive Text.
• Take frequent breaks to stretch and relax.
Emergency Calls
This phone, like any wireless phone, operates using radio
signals, which cannot guarantee connection in all conditions.
Therefore, you must never rely solely on any wireless phone for
emergency communications.
Loud Noise
This phone is capable of producing loud noises, which may
damage your hearing. Turn down the volume before using
headphones, Bluetooth stereo headsets or other audio devices.
Phone Heating
Your phone may become warm during charging and during
normal use. The phone will not charge when the battery
temperature is above 45°C. Avoid high temperatures.
112
Accessories
Use only approved accessories.
Do not connect with incompatible products or accessories.
Take care not to touch or allow metal objects, such as coins
or key rings, to contact or short-circuit in the battery terminals.
Connection to a Car
Seek professional advice when connecting a phone interface to
the vehicle electrical system.
Faulty and Damaged Products
Do not attempt to disassemble the phone or its accessories.
Only qualified personnel can service or repair the phone or its
accessories.
If your phone or its accessory has been submerged in water,
punctured, or subjected to a severe fall, do not use it until you
have taken it to be checked at an authorised service centre.
Pacemakers
Pacemaker manufacturers recommend that a minimum
separation of 15 cm be maintained between a mobile phone and
a pacemaker to avoid potential interference with the pacemaker.
To achieve this, use the phone on the opposite ear to your
pacemaker and do not carry it in a breast pocket.
113
Hearing Aids
People with hearing aids or cochlear implants may experience
noise when using wireless devices or when one is nearby.
The level of interference will depend on the type of hearing
device and the distance from the interference source, increasing
the separation between them may reduce the interference. You
may also consult your hearing aid manufacturer to discuss
alternatives.
Medical Devices
Please consult your doctor and the device manufacturer to
determine if operation of your phone may interfere with the
operation of your medical device.
Hospitals
Switch off your wireless device when requested to do so in
hospitals, clinics or health care facilities. These requests are
designed to prevent possible interference with sensitive medical
equipment.
Aircraft
Switch off your wireless device whenever you are instructed to do
so by airport or airline staff.
Consult the airline staff about the use of wireless devices on
board the aircraft. If your device offers a ‘flight mode’, this must
be enabled prior to boarding an aircraft. Note that programmed
alarms and calendar reminders can wake the power the phone
up even when switched off.
114
Interference in Cars
Please note that because of possible interference to
electronic equipment, some vehicle manufacturers forbid the
use of mobile phones in their vehicles unless a hands-free kit
with an external antenna is included in the installation.
Petrol Stations and Explosive Atmospheres
Obey all warning signs in high risk areas such as fuelling areas,
below decks on boats, fuel or chemical transfer or storage
facilities, areas where the air contains chemicals or particles,
such as grain, dust, or metal powders, blasting areas, mines, or
any other prescribed area.
