Get to know your device and its convenience features, such as
speed dial and redial. These features help you reduce the time
needed to place or receive calls on your mobile device.
Position your device within easy reach. Be able to access your
wireless device without removing your eyes from the road. If you
receive an incoming call at an inconvenient time, let your voice
mail answer it for you.
Let the person you are speaking with know you are driving.
Suspend calls in heavy traffic or hazardous weather conditions.
Rain, sleet, snow, ice, and heavy traffic can be hazardous.
Do not take notes or look up phone numbers. Jotting down a
"to do" list or flipping through your address book takes attention
away from your primary responsibility of driving safely.
Dial sensibly and assess the traffic. Place calls when you are not
moving or before pulling into traffic. Try to plan calls when your
car will be stationary. If you need to make a call, dial only a few
numbers, check the road and your mirrors, then continue.
Do not engage in stressful or emotional conversations that may
be distracting. Make people you are talking with aware you are
driving and suspend conversations that have the potential to
divert your attention from the road.
Use your device to call for help. Dial a local emergency number
in the case of fire, traffic accident, or medical emergencies.
Use your device to help others in emergencies. If you see an
auto accident, a crime in progress, or a serious emergency
where lives are in danger, call a local emergency number.
Call roadside assistance or a special, non-emergency assistance
number when necessary. If you see a broken-down vehicle
posing no serious hazard, a broken traffic signal, a minor traffic
accident where no one appears injured, or a vehicle you know
to be stolen, call roadside assistance or another special, non-
emergency number.
When cleaning your device:
Wipe your device or charger with a towel or an eraser.
Clean the terminals of the battery with a cotton ball or a towel.
Do not use chemicals or detergents.
Do not use the device if the screen is cracked or broken
Broken glass or acrylic could cause injury to your hands and face.
Take the device to a Samsung Service Centre to have it repaired.
Do not use the device for anything other than its intended
use
Avoid disturbing others when using the device in public
Do not allow children to use your device
Your device is not a toy. Do not allow children to play with it as they
could hurt themselves and others, damage the device, or make
calls that increase your charges.
Install mobile devices and equipment with caution
Ensure that any mobile devices or related equipment installed in
your vehicle are securely mounted.
Avoid placing your device and accessories near or in an air bag
deployment area. Improperly installed wireless equipment can
cause serious injury when air bags inflate rapidly.
Allow only qualified personnel to service your device
Allowing unqualified personnel to service your device may result in
damage to your device and will void your manufacturer's warranty.
Handle SIM cards or memory cards with care
Do not remove a card while the device is transferring or
accessing information, as this could result in loss of data and/or
damage to the card or device.
Protect cards from strong shocks, static electricity, and electrical
noise from other devices.
Do not touch gold-coloured contacts or terminals with your
fingers or metal objects. If dirty, wipe the card with a soft cloth.

Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) certification
information
THIS DEVICE MEETS INTERNATIONAL 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 (radio frequency
electromagnetic fields) recommended by international guidelines.
The guidelines were developed by an independent scientific
organisation (ICNIRP) and include a substantial safety margin
designed to assure the safety of all persons, regardless of age and
health.
The radio wave exposure guidelines use a unit of measurement
known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit for
mobile devices is 2.0 W/kg.
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 highest SAR values under the ICNIRP
guidelines for this device model are:
Maximum SAR for this model and conditions under which it
was recorded
Head SAR
0.873 W/kg
Body-worn SAR
0.352 W/kg
During use, the actual SAR values for this device are usually well
below the values stated above. This is because, for purposes of
system efficiency and to minimise interference on the network, the
operating power of your mobile device is automatically decreased
when full power is not needed for the call. The lower the power
output of the device, the lower its SAR value.
A body-worn SAR test has been performed on this device with an
approved accessory or at a separation distance of 1.5 cm. To meet
RF exposure guidelines during body-worn operation, the device must
be used with the approved accessory or positioned at least 1.5 cm
away from the body. If you use an unapproved accessory, ensure
that the accessory does not contain any metal components and that
it positions the device at least 1.5 cm away from the body.
Caution: Follow all safety warnings and
regulations when using your device in restricted
areas
Turn off your device where prohibited
Comply with all regulations that restrict the use of a mobile device in
a particular area.
Do not use your device near other electronic devices
Most electronic devices use radio frequency signals. Your device
may interfere with other electronic devices.
Do not use your device near a pacemaker
Avoid using your device within a 15 cm range of a pacemaker if
possible, as your device can interfere with the pacemaker.
If you must use your device, keep it at least 15 cm away from the
pacemaker.
To minimise the possible interference with a pacemaker, use your
device on the opposite side of your body from the pacemaker.
Do not use your device in a hospital or near medical
equipment that can be interfered with by radio frequency
If you personally use any medical equipment, contact the
manufacturer of the equipment to ensure the safety of your
equipment from radio frequency.
If you are using a hearing aid, contact the manufacturer for
information about radio interference
Some hearing aids may be interfered with by the radio frequency of
your device. Contact the manufacturer to ensure the safety of your
hearing aid.
Reduce the risk of repetitive motion injuries
When you repetitively perform actions, such as pressing keys,
drawing characters on a touch screen with your fingers, or playing
games, you may experience occasional discomfort in your hands,
neck, shoulders, or other parts of your body. When using your device
for extended periods, hold the device with a relaxed grip, press
the keys lightly, and take frequent breaks. If you continue to have
discomfort during or after such use, stop use and see a physician.
Ensure maximum battery and charger life
Avoid charging batteries for more than a week, as overcharging
may shorten battery life.
Over time, unused batteries will discharge and must be recharged
before use.
Disconnect chargers from power sources when not in use.
Use batteries only for their intended purposes.
Use manufacturer-approved batteries, chargers, accessories
and supplies
Using generic batteries or chargers may shorten the life of your
device or cause the device to malfunction.
Samsung cannot be responsible for the user's safety when using
accessories or supplies that are not approved by Samsung.
Do not bite or suck on the device or the battery
Doing so may damage the device or cause explosion.
If children use the device, make sure that they use the device
properly.
Do not insert the device or supplied accessories into the
eyes, ears, or mouth
Doing so may cause suffocation or serious injuries.
When speaking on the device:
Hold the device upright, as you would with a traditional phone.
Speak directly into the mouthpiece.
Do not touch the device's internal antenna. Doing so may result in
reduced call quality or cause the device to emit unintended levels
of radio frequency (RF) energy.
Organisations such as the World Health Organisation and the US
Food and Drug Administration have suggested that if people are
concerned and want to reduce their exposure, they could use a
hands-free accessory to keep the wireless device away from the
head and body during use, or reduce the amount of time spent using
the device.
