RF Energy Interference/Compatibility
Nearly every electronic device is subject to RF energy interference from external sources if
inadequately shielded, designed, or otherwise configured for RF energy compatibility. In
some circumstances, your mobile device may cause interference with other devices.

Follow Instructions to Avoid Interference Problems

Turn off your mobile device in any location where posted notices instruct you to do so.
In an aircraft, turn off your mobile device whenever instructed to do so by airline staff. If your
mobile device offers an airplane mode or similar feature, consult airline staff about using it in

Implantable Medical Devices

If you have an implantable medical device, such as a pacemaker or defibrillator, consult your
physician before using this mobile device.
Persons with implantable medical devices should observe the following precautions:
• ALWAYS keep the mobile device more than 20 centimeters (8 inches) from the
implantable medical device when the mobile device is turned ON.
• DO NOT carry the mobile device in the breast pocket.
• Use the ear opposite the implantable medical device to minimize the potential for
• Turn OFF the mobile device immediately if you have any reason to suspect that
interference is taking place.
Read and follow the directions from the manufacturer of your implantable medical device. If
you have any questions about using your mobile device with your implantable medical
device, consult your healthcare provider.
Specific Absorption Rate (FCC)
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) adopted by the Federal
Communications Commission (FCC). These limits 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 1.6 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 FCC guidelines for your device model are listed below:
Head SAR
CDMA 800/1900, UMTS 850/1900/ 2100,
GSM 850/900/1800/1900, Wi-Fi,
Body-worn SAR
CDMA 800/1900, UMTS 850/1900/ 2100,
GSM 850/900/1800/1900, Wi-Fi,
During use, the actual SAR values for your device are usually well below the values stated.
This is because, for purposes of system efficiency and to minimize 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
Body-worn SAR testing has been carried out using an approved accessory or at a separation
distance of 2.5 cm (1 inch). To meet RF exposure guidelines during body-worn operation, the
device should be in an approved accessory or positioned at least 2.5 cm (1 inch) away from
the body. If you are not using an approved accessory, ensure that whatever product is used is
free of any metal and that it positions the phone at least 2.5 cm (1 inch) away from the body.
If you are interested in further reducing your RF exposure then you can easily do so by limiting
your usage or simply using a hands-free kit to keep the device away from the head and body.
