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
HomeBusinessandEntertainment/CellPhones/default.htm and
the FCC website at
Additional health-related information is available from the World
Health Organization (WHO) at
fs193/en/ and The National Cancer Institute ("NCI")
ncicancerbulletin/NCI_Cancer_Bulletin_092308/page7. 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

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.
