Remember to follow any special regulations
in force in any area, and always turn off your
device wherever it is forbidden to use it, or
when it may cause interference or danger.
When connecting the device to a phone, read
its user guide for detailed safety instructions.
Do not connect incompatible products.
Pacemaker manufacturers recommend that
a minimum separation of 16 cm (6 inches)
be maintained between a wireless device and
a pacemaker to avoid potential interference
with the pacemaker.These recommendations
are consistent with the independent research
of and recommendations of Wireless
Technology Research. Users with pacemakers
• Always keep your device at least 20 cm
(8 inches) away from your pacemaker when
the device is switched on.
• Never carry your device in your breast pocket.
• Use the ear opposite to the pacemaker
to minimise the potential for interference.
• Switch off your device immediately if you
suspect that interference is being caused.
Certain hearing aids can be affected by wireless
products. If this occurs, please consult the
hearing aid manufacturer.
other medical equipment
Operation of any radio transmitting equipment,
including mobile phones and WiPOQs, may
interfere with the working of other inadequately
protected medical devices. Consult a physician
or the manufacturer of the medical device
if you have any questions. Always switch off
your device in health care facilities when any
regulations posted in these areas instruct you
to do so.
Using your WiPOQ and phone while in the
air is prohibited. Switch off your phone before
boarding any aircraft.The use of mobile
telephones in an aircraft may be dangerous to
the operation of the aircraft, disrupt the mobile
telephone network, and is illegal.You may be
able to use your WiPOQ once in the air as
long as the Bluetooth connection is disabled.
However we recommend you check with your
airline before use.
• You are advised to switch off your WiPOQ
and phone when at a petrol station or other
refuelling point.You must observe restrictions
on the use of radio equipment in fuel depots
(fuel storage and distribution areas); chemical
plants or where blasting operations are
• 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); areas where the air
contains chemicals or particles, such as grain,
dust or metal powders; and any other area
where you would normally be advised to
turn off your vehicle engine.
Note:The functioning of your WiPOQ can be
affected by localised conditions, and we cannot
guarantee coverage inside buildings.
general safety information
• Remember to always make backup copies
of all important data.
• The information or services you have
accessed using WAP or the web are often
stored in the cache of your device, which
is a memory used to store data temporarily.
You should therefore take care in allowing
others to access your device.
• Parts of the WiPOQ are magnetic. Metallic
materials may be attracted to the device.
Do not place credit cards or other magnetic
storage media near the WiPOQ, because
information stored on them may be erased.
• Always switch your device off in any facility
where posted notices so require.
