Health and safety information SAR certification information This phone meets European Union (EU) requirements concerning exposure to radio waves. Your mobile phone is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed and manufactured to not exceed the limits for exposure to radio-frequency (RF) energy, as recommended by the EU Council.
If left unused, a fully charged battery will discharge itself over time. • Use only Samsung-approved batteries, and recharge your battery only with Samsung-approved chargers. Disconnect the charger from the power source when it is not in use. Do not leave the battery connected to a charger for more than a week, since overcharging may shorten its life.
Health and safety information Road safety Your wireless phone gives you the powerful ability to communicate by voice, almost anywhere, anytime. But an important responsibility accompanies the benefits of wireless phones, one that every user must uphold. When you are driving a car, driving is your first responsibility.
Hearing aids Some digital wireless phones may interfere with some hearing aids. In the event of such interference, you may wish to consult your hearing aid manufacturer to discuss alternatives. Other medical devices If you use any other personal medical devices, consult the manufacturer of your device to determine if it is adequately shielded from external RF energy.
Health and safety information Emergency calls This phone, like any wireless phone, operates using radio signals, wireless, and landline networks as well as user- programmed functions, which cannot guarantee connection in all conditions. Therefore, you should never rely solely on any wireless phone for essential communications like medical emergencies.
Care and maintenance Your phone is a product of superior design and craftsmanship and should be treated with care. The suggestions below will help you fulfill any warranty obligations and allow you to enjoy this product for many years. • Keep your phone and all its parts and accessories out of the reach of small children and pets.

Unauthorised antennas or modified accessories may damage the phone and violate regulations governing radio devices. • If the phone, battery, charger, or any accessory is not working properly, take it to your nearest qualified service facility.
