Maintaining Safe Use of and Access to Your Phone FAILURE TO FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS OUTLINED MAY LEAD TO SERIOUS PERSONAL INJURY AND POSSIBLE PROPERTY DAMAGE Using Your Phone While Driving Talking on your phone while driving (or operating the phone without a hands-free...
Using Your Phone Near Other Electronic Devices Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from radiofrequency (RF) signals. However, RF signals from wireless phones may affect inadequately shielded electronic equipment. RF signals may affect improperly installed or inadequately shielded electronic operating systems and/or entertainment systems in motor vehicles. Check with the manufacturer or their representative to determine if these systems are adequately shielded from external RF signals.
Not all phones have been rated. Phones that have been rated will have an “M3”or “M4”rating on the box. Your SCP-200 by Sanyo has an M3 rating. Note: Phones rated M3 or M4 meet FCC requirements and may generate less interference to hearing devices than phones that are not labeled.
Getting the Best Hearing Device Experience With Your Sprint PCS Phone To further minimize interference: There is usually less interference on the microphone setting than the telecoil setting. Set the phone’s Display and Keypad backlight settings to ensure the minimum time interval.
Caring for the Battery Protecting Your Battery The guidelines listed below help you get the most out of your battery’s performance. Use only Sprint-approved batteries and chargers. These chargers are designed to maximize battery life. Using other batteries or chargers voids your warranty and may cause damage.
Acknowledging Special Precautions and the FCC Notice FCC Notice This phone may cause TV or radio interference if used in close proximity to receiving equipment. The FCC can require you to stop using the phone if such interference cannot be eliminated. Vehicles using liquefied petroleum gas (propane or butane) must comply with the National Fire Protection Standard (NFPA-58).
SAR values at or below the federal standard of 1.6 W/kg are considered safe for use by the public. The highest reported SAR values of the SCP-200 are: AMPS/CDMA modes (Part 22): Head: 1.360 W/kg; Body-worn: 1.050 W/kg PCS mode (Part 24): Head: 1.180 W/kg;...
Consumer Information on Wireless Phones (The following information comes from a consumer information Website jointly sponsored by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), entitled “Cell Phone Facts: Consumer Information on Wireless Phones.”The information reproduced herein is dated July 29, 2003. For further updates, please visit the Website: http://www.fda.gov/cellphones/qa.html.) What is radiofrequency energy (RF)? Radiofrequency (RF) energy is another name for radio waves.
How is radiofrequency radiation measured? RF waves and RF fields have both electrical and magnetic components. It is often convenient to express the strength of the RF field in terms of each component. For example, the unit “volts per meter”(V/m) is used to measure the electric field strength, and the unit “amperes per meter”(A/m) is used to express the magnetic field strength.
FDA, EPA and other US government agencies responsible for public health and safety have worked together and in connection with WHO to monitor developments and identify research needs related to RF biological effects. What levels of RF energy are considered safe? Various organizations and countries have developed standards for exposure to radiofrequency energy.
does have the expertise and authority to recognize and adopt technically sound standards promulgated by other expert agencies and organizations, and has done so. (Our joint efforts with the FDA in developing this website is illustrative of the kind of inter-agency efforts and consultation we engage in regarding this health and safety issue.) Under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA), the FCC has certain responsibilities to consider whether its actions will significantly affect the quality of...
you will see instructions for entering the FCC ID number. Type the FCC ID number exactly as requested (the Grantee Code is the first three characters, the Equipment Product Code is the rest of the FCC ID number). Then click on “Start Search.”The “Grant of Equipment Authorization”for your telephone should appear.
February 2002, the Federal trade Commission (FTC) charged two companies that sold devices that claimed to protect wireless phone users from radiation with making false and unsubstantiated claims. According to FTC, these defendants lacked a reasonable basis to substantiate their claim. What are wireless telephone base stations? Fixed antennas used for wireless telecommunications are referred to as cellular base stations, cell stations, PCS (“Personal Communications Service”) stations or...
Cellular and PCS base stations in the United States are required to comply with limits for exposure recommended by expert organizations and endorsed by government agencies responsible for health and safety. Measurements made near cellular and PCS base station antennas mounted on towers have confirmed that ground-level exposures are typically thousands of times less than the exposure limits adopted by the FCC.

the user. In such a case, FDA could require the manufacturers of wireless phones to notify users of the health hazard and to repair, replace or recall the phones so that the hazard no longer exists. Although the existing scientific data do notjustify FDA regulatory actions, FDA has urged the wireless phone industry to take a number of steps, including the following: Support needed research into possible biological effects of RF of the type emitted by wireless phones;...
What are the results of the research done already? The research done thus far has produced conflicting results, and many studies have suffered from flaws in their research methods. Animal experiments investigating the effects of radiofrequency energy (RF) exposures characteristic of wireless phones have yielded conflicting results that often cannot be repeated in other laboratories.
has driven the establishment of new research programs around the world. The Project has also helped develop a series of public information documents on EMF issues. FDA and the Cellular Telecommunications & Internet Association (CTIA) have a formal Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) to do research on wireless phone safety.
electromagnetic interference (EMI) of implanted cardiac pacemakers and defibrillators from wireless telephones. This test method is now part of a standard sponsored by the Association for the Advancement of Medical instrumentation (AAMI). The final draft, a joint effort by FDA, medical device manufacturers, and many other groups, was completed in late 2000.
The EPA has, in the past, considered developing federal guidelines for public exposure to RF radiation. However, EPA activities related to RF safety and health are presently limited to advisory functions. For example, the EPA now chairs an Inter- agency Radiofrequency Working Group, which coordinates RF health-related activities among the various federal agencies with health or regulatory responsibilities in this area.
