Additional safety information

Operating environment

This device meets RF exposure guidelines when used either in the normal use
position against the ear or when positioned at least 2.2cm (7/8 inches) away 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.

In order to transmit data files or messages, this device requires a good quality
connection to the network. In some cases, transmission of data files or messages
may be delayed until such a connection is available. Ensure the above separation
distance instructions are followed until the transmission is completed.

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 phone 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 6 inches
(15.3 cm) 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.
To minimize the potential for interference, persons with pacemakers should

Always keep the phone more than 6 inches (15.3 cm) from their pacemaker
when the phone is switched on

Not carry the phone in a breast pocket

Hold the phone to the ear opposite the pacemaker to minimize the potential
for interference

If you have any reason to suspect that interference is taking place, switch off your
phone immediately.


Some digital wireless phones 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 phone, or install the phone in a vehicle.
Faulty installation or service may be dangerous and may invalidate any warranty that
may apply to the phone. Check regularly that all wireless phone 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 phone, its parts, or
enhancements. For vehicles equipped with an air bag, remember that an air bag
inflates 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.

Potentially explosive environments

Switch off your phone 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 phone 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, 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.

FCC regulations prohibit using your wireless device while in the air. The use of wireless
telephones in an aircraft may be dangerous to the operation of the aircraft, disrupt
the wireless telephone network, and may be illegal.

Failure to observe these instructions may lead to suspension or denial of telephone
services to the offender, legal action, or both.

Emergency calls

Important: Wireless phones, including this phone, 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 phone for
essential communications like medical emergencies.

To make an emergency call, do the following:

1. If the phone is not on, switch it on. Check for adequate signal strength.

2. Press End as many times as needed to clear the display and ready the

phone for calls.

3. Enter the official emergency number for your present location. Emergency

numbers vary by location.

4. Press Call.

If certain features are in use, you may first need to turn those features off before you
can make an emergency call. If the phone is in an offline or flight mode, you must
change the profile to activate the phone function before you can make an emergency
call. Consult this guide or your service provider. When making an emergency call,
give all the necessary information as accurately as possible. Your wireless phone
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 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 international
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 well 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 when tested according to international testing procedures for
use at the ear for device type RH-89 is 0.58 W/kg. The device type is listed on the label
located under the battery.

SAR values may vary depending on national reporting and testing requirements
and the network band. Use of device accessories and enhancements may result in
different SAR values. Additional SAR information may be provided under product
information at

USA and Canada: The SAR limit of USA (FCC) and Canada (IC) is 1.6 W/kg averaged
over one gram of tissue. Device type RH-89 has also been tested against this SAR limit.
The highest SAR value reported under this standard during product certification for
use at the ear is 1.12 W/kg and when properly worn on the body is 0.56 W/kg.
Information about this device can be found on the FCC's website at
by searching the equipment authorization system using FCC ID: QMNRH-89.
