Important Safety Information
There are several simple guidelines to operating your phone properly and maintaining safe, satisfactory service.
• Avoid exposing your phone and accessories to rain or liquid spills. If your phone does get wet, immediately turn the power off and keep in a dry place.
• Do not expose your phone to direct sunlight for extended periods of time (such as on the dashboard of a car).
• Although your phone is quite sturdy, it is a complex piece of equipment and can be broken. Avoid dropping, hitting, bending or sitting on it.
• Any changes or modifications to your phone not expressly approved in this document could void your warranty for this equipment and void your authority to operate this equipment. Using Your Phone While Driving Operating your phone while driving is prohibited in some jurisdictions. Laws vary as to specific restrictions. Remember that safety always comes first. Check the laws and regulations on the use of wireless devices in the areas where you drive and always obey them. Also, if using your device while driving, please observe the following:
• Give full attention to driving — driving safely is your first responsibility;
• Use hands-free operation, if available;
• Pull off the road and park before using it.
Restricting Children’s Access to Your Mobile Device
Your device is not a toy. Do not allow children to play with it because they could hurt themselves and others, damage the device, or make calls that increase your device bill. Keep the device and all its parts and accessories out of the reach of small children. Screen images are simulated. Appearance of device may vary. The actual available capacity of the internal memory is less than the specified capacity because the operating system and default applications occupy part of the memory. The available capacity may change when you upgrade the device.
Following Safety Guidelines
To operate your phone safely and efficiently, always follow any special regulations in a given area. Turn your phone off in areas where use is forbidden or when it may cause interference or danger. Caring for the Battery The guidelines below help you get the most out of your battery’s performance
• In order to avoid damage, charge the battery only in temperatures that
range from 32° F to 113° F (0° C to 45° C).
• Don’t use the battery charger in direct sunlight or in high humidity areas, such as the bathroom.
• Never dispose of the battery by incineration.
• Don’t attempt to disassemble, open crush, bend or deform, puncture, shred or short-circuit the battery.
• The battery may need recharging if it has not been used for a long period of time.
• Don’t store the battery in high temperature areas for long periods of time. It’s best to follow these storage rules:
Less than one month: -4° F to 140° F (-20° C to 60° C)
More than one month: -4° F to 113° F (-20° C to 45° C)
• Do not modify or remanufacture, attempt to insert foreign objects into the battery, immerse or expose to water or other liquids, expose to fire, explosion or other hazard.
Disposal of Lithium Ion Polymer (Li-Ion Polymer) Batteries
Do not handle a damaged or leaking Li-Ion Polymer battery as you can be burned. Special Note: Be sure to dispose of your battery properly. In some areas, the disposal of batteries in household or business trash may be prohibited.
RF Exposure Information (SAR)
This phone 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 United States.
During SAR testing, this device was set to transmit at its highest certified power level in all tested frequency bands, and placed in positions that simulate RF exposure in usage against the head with no separation, and near the body with the separation of 10mm. 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 phone 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 wireless base station antenna, the lower the power output.
The exposure standard for wireless devices employing a unit of measurement is known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit set by the FCC is 1.6W/kg.
This device is compliant with SAR for general population/uncontrolled exposure limits in ANSI/IEEE C95.1-1992 and had been tested in accordance with the measurement methods and procedures specified in IEEE1528.
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this model with all Help reported SAR levels evaluated as in compliance with the FCC RF exposure guidelines. SAR information on this model phone is on file with the FCC ID: 2ALZM-UL40. For this device, the highest reported SAR value for usage against the head is 1.48 W/kg, for usage near the body is 1.13 W/kg.
While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various phones and at various positions, they all meet the government requirements. SAR compliance for body-worn operation is based on a separation distance of 10mm between the unit and the human body. Carry this device at least 10mm away from your body to ensure RF exposure level compliant or lower to the reported level. To support body-worn operation, choose belt clips or holsters, which do not contain metallic components, to maintain a separation of 10mm between this device and your body. RF exposure compliance with any body-worn accessory, which contains metal, was not tested and certified, and use of such body-worn accessories should be avoided.

Radiation Exposure Statement
This device complies with part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation. Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the user’s authority to operate the equipment. This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules.
These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation.
If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
This equipment complies with FCC radiation exposure limits set forth for an uncontrolled environment. End user mus t follow the specific operating instructions for satisfying RF exposure compliance. This transmitter must not be co-located or operating in conjunction with any other antenna or transmitter.
The portable device is designed to meet the requirements for exposure to radio waves established by the Federal Communications Commission (USA). 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 when properly worn on the body.
Industry Canada license-exempt Statement
This device complies with Industry Canada license-exempt RSS standard(s). Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) this device may not cause interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference, including interference that may cause undesired operation of the device.
