overcharging may shorten battery life.
Over time, unused batteries will discharge and must
be recharged before use.
Disconnect chargers from power sources when not
Use batteries only for their intended purpose.
Handle SIM cards with care
Do not remove a card while the phone is transferring
or accessing information, as this could result in loss of
data and/or damage to the card or phone.
Protect cards from strong shocks, static electricity,
and electrical noise from other devices.
Frequent writing and erasing will shorten the life span
of memory cards.
Do not touch gold-colored contacts or terminals with

Turn off the phone or disable the wireless
functions when in an aircraft
Your phone can cause interference with aircraft
equipment. Follow all airline regulations and turn off your
phone or switch to a mode that disables the wireless
functions when directed by airline personnel.
Protect batteries and chargers from damage
Avoid exposing batteries to very cold or very hot
temperatures (below 0° C/32° F or above 45° C/
113° F). Extreme temperatures can reduce the
charging capacity and life of your batteries.
Prevent batteries from contacting metal objects, as this
can create a connection between the + and – terminals
of your batteries and lead to temporary or permanent
Never use a damaged charger or battery.
Handle your phone carefully and sensibly
Do not disassemble your phone due to a risk of electric
Do not allow your phone to get wet—liquids can cause
serious damage. Do not handle your phone with wet
hands. Water damage to your phone can void your
Your phone conforms to U.S. Federal Communications
Commission (FCC) standards that limit human
exposure to radio frequency (RF) energy emitted by
radio and telecommunications equipment. These
standards prevent the sale of mobile phone that exceed
a maximum exposure level (known as the Specifi c
Absorption Rate, or SAR) of 1.6 watts per kilogram.
During testing, the maximum SAR values recorded for
this model were:
Specifi c Absorption Rate
Held to ear
Worn on body
GSM900 (10g) 0.639
GSM1800 (10g) 0.469
GSM1900 (1g) 0.916
1. When used with accessories that contain no metal and provide
at least 1.5 cm separation between the phone (including the
antenna, whether extended or retracted) and the wearer's
Comply with the following precautions to avoid dangerous or illegal situations and ensure peak
performance of your mobile phone.
Handle and dispose of batteries and chargers
Use only Samsung-approved batteries and chargers
specifi cally designed for your phone.
Incompatible batteries and chargers can cause serious
injuries or damage to your phone.
Never dispose of batteries or phones in a fi re. Follow
all local regulations when disposing of used batteries
Never place batteries or phones on or in heating
devices, such as microwave ovens, stoves, or
radiators. Batteries may explode when overheated.
Never crush or puncture the battery. Avoid exposing
the battery to high external pressure, which can lead to
an internal short circuit and overheating.
Avoid interference with pacemakers
Maintain a minimum of 15 cm (6 inches) between mobile
phones and pacemakers to avoid potential interference,
as recommended by manufacturers and the independent
research group, Wireless Technology Research. If you
have any reason to suspect that your phone is interfering
with a pacemaker or other medical device, turn off the
phone immediately and contact the manufacturer of the
pacemaker or medical device for guidance.
Avoid using or storing your phone in dusty, dirty areas
to prevent damage to moving parts.
Your phone is a complex electronic device—protect
it from impacts and rough handling to avoid serious
Do not paint your phone, as paint can clog moving
parts and prevent proper operation.
If your phone has a camera fl ash or light, avoid using it
close to the eyes of children or animals.
Your phone may be damaged by exposure to magnetic
fi elds. Do not use carrying cases or accessories with
magnetic closures or allow your phone to come in
contact with magnetic fi elds for extended periods of
Avoid interference with other electronic devices
Your phone emits radio frequency (RF) signals that
may interfere with unshielded or improperly shielded
electronic equipment, such as pacemakers, hearing
aids, medical devices, and other electronic devices in
homes or vehicles. Consult the manufacturers of your
electronic devices to solve any interference problems
In normal use, the actual SAR is likely to be much lower,
as the phone has been designed to emit only the RF
energy necessary to transmit a signal to the nearest
base station. By automatically emitting lower levels when
possible, your phone reduces your overall exposure to
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization
for this model phone based on the compliance of
all reported SAR levels with the FCC RF exposure
guidelines. The authorization can be found on the FCC
Offi ce of Engineering and Technology website at http://
www.fcc.gov/oet/ea (search for grantee code A3L and
product code E1085/E1085L).
Turn off the phone in potentially explosive
Do not use your phone at refueling points (service
stations) or near fuels or chemicals. Turn off your phone
whenever directed by warning signs or instructions.
Your phone could cause explosions or fi re in and
