Information on health
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) published statements and
questions and answers concerning mobile telephones and health. Nokia encourages you to visit these websites for updated
information. You can access the FDA website at
RadiationEmittingProductsandProcedures/HomeBusinessandEntertainment/CellPhones/default.htm and the FCC website at Additional health-related information is available from the World Health
Organization (WHO) at and The National Cancer Institute ("NCI") In the event that you are concerned about possible
health effects, the FDA suggests that you limit your own or your children's radio frequency (RF) exposure by limiting the length
of calls or by using handsfree devices.
Radio signals may affect improperly installed or inadequately shielded electronic systems in vehicles. For more info, check with
the manufacturer of your vehicle or its equipment.
Only qualified personnel should install the device in a vehicle. Faulty installation may be dangerous and invalidate your warranty.
Check regularly that all wireless device equipment in your vehicle is mounted and operating properly. Do not store or carry
flammable or explosive materials in the same compartment as the device, its parts, or accessories. Do not place your device or
accessories in the air bag deployment area.
Safety and texting while driving
Safety should be every driver's first priority. Drivers must obey all local laws that may include restrictions on the use of mobile
telephones or accessories while driving. If use is legal, always keep your hands free to operate the vehicle while driving and use
a handsfree device whenever possible. Suspend calls in heavy traffic or hazardous weather. Get to know your mobile phone and
its features and make any necessary information inputs prior to driving. Do not input data or engage in text messaging while
driving. Mobile telephones should not be used when use may be a distraction to the driver.
The Cellular Telecommunications & Internet Association (CTIA) has published further info and tips on safe use of cellular
telephones at, which we encourage you to review.

Potentially explosive environments

Switch your device off in potentially explosive environments, such as near gas station pumps. Sparks may cause an explosion or
fire resulting in injury or death. Note restrictions in areas with fuel; chemical plants; or where blasting operations are in progress.
Areas with a potentially explosive environment may not be clearly marked. These usually are areas where you are advised to
switch your engine off, below deck on boats, chemical transfer or storage facilities, and where the air contains chemicals or
particles. Check with the manufacturers of vehicles using liquefied petroleum gas (such as propane or butane) if this device can
be safely used in their vicinity.
Certification information (SAR)
This mobile device meets international guidelines for exposure to radio waves.
Your cellular phone 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 from the independent scientific organization
ICNIRP. These guidelines incorporate substantial safety margins assure the protection of all persons regardless of age and health.
The exposure guidelines are based on the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR), which is an expression of the amount of radio frequency
(RF) power deposited in the head or body when the device is transmitting. The ICNIRP SAR limit for mobile devices is 2.0 W/kg
averaged over 10 grams of tissue.
