  • Page 5: Guidelines For Safe And Efficient Use

    Guidelines for safe and efficient use Please read these simple guidelines. Not following these guidelines may be dangerous or illegal. Should a fault occur, a software tool is built into your device that will gather a fault log. This tool gathers only data specific to the fault, such as signal strength, cell ID position in sudden call drop and applications loaded. The log is used only to help determine the cause of the fault. These logs are encrypted and can only be accessed by an authorised LG Repair centre should you need to return your device for repair. Exposure to radio frequency energy Radio wave exposure and Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) information. This mobile phone model LG-H818N has been designed to comply with applicable safety requirements for exposure to radio waves. These requirements are based on scientific guidelines that include safety margins designed to assure the safety of all persons, regardless of age and health. The radio wave exposure guidelines employ a unit of measurement known as the • Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. Tests for SAR are conducted using standardised methods with the phone transmitting at its highest certified power level in all used frequency bands. While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various LG phone • models, they are all designed to meet the relevant guidelines for exposure to radio waves. The SAR limit recommended by the International Commission on Non-Ionizing • Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) is 2 W/kg averaged over 10 g of tissue. The highest SAR value for this model phone tested for use at the ear is • 0.578 W/kg (10 g) and when worn on the body is 0.392 W/Kg (10 g). Guidelines for safe and efficient use...

  • Page 8: Efficient Phone Operation

    Efficient phone operation Electronics devices All mobile phones may receive interference, which could affect performance. Do not use your mobile phone near medical equipment without requesting • permission. Avoid placing the phone over pacemakers, for example, in your breast pocket. Some hearing aids might be disturbed by mobile phones. • Minor interference may affect TVs, radios, PCs etc. • Use your phone in temperatures between 0 ºC and 40 ºC, if possible. Exposing • your phone to extremely low or high temperatures may result in damage, malfunction, or even explosion. Road safety Check the laws and regulations on the use of mobile phones in the area when you drive. Do not use a hand-held phone while driving. • Give full attention to driving. • Pull off the road and park before making or answering a call if driving conditions • so require. RF energy may affect some electronic systems in your vehicle such as car stereos • and safety equipment. When your vehicle is equipped with an air bag, do not obstruct with installed or • portable wireless equipment. It can cause the air bag to fail or cause serious injury due to improper performance. If you are listening to music whilst out and about, please ensure that the volume • is at a reasonable level so that you are aware of your surroundings. This is of particular importance when near roads. Guidelines for safe and efficient use...

  • Page 9: Avoid Damage To Your Hearing

    Avoid damage to your hearing To prevent possible hearing damage, do not listen at high volume levels for long periods. Damage to your hearing can occur if you are exposed to loud sound for long periods of time. We therefore recommend that you do not turn on or off the handset close to your ear. We also recommend that music and call volumes are set to a reasonable level. When using headphones, turn the volume down if you cannot hear the people • speaking near you, or if the person sitting next to you can hear what you are listening to. NOTE Excessive sound pressure from earphones and headphones can cause • hearing loss. Glass Parts Some parts of your mobile device are made of glass. This glass could break if your mobile device is dropped on a hard surface or receives a substantial impact. If the glass...

In aircraft Wireless devices can cause interference in aircraft. Turn your mobile phone off before boarding any aircraft. • Do not use it on the ground without permission from the crew. • Children Keep the phone in a safe place out of the reach of small children. It includes small parts which may cause a choking hazard if detached. Emergency calls Emergency calls may not be available on all mobile networks. Therefore you should never depend solely on your phone for emergency calls. Check with your local service provider. Battery information and care You do not need to completely discharge the battery before recharging. Unlike • other battery systems, there is no memory effect that could compromise the battery's performance. Use only LG batteries and chargers. LG chargers are designed to maximise the • battery life.

    Replace the battery when it no longer provides acceptable performance. The • battery pack may be recharged hundreds of times before it needs replacing. Recharge the battery if it has not been used for a long time to maximise usability. • Do not expose the battery charger to direct sunlight or use it in high humidity, such • as in the bathroom. Do not leave the battery in hot or cold places, as this may deteriorate battery • performance. There is risk of explosion if the battery is replaced with an incorrect type. • Dispose of used batteries according to the manufacturer's instructions. Please • recycle when possible. Do not dispose as household waste. If you need to replace the battery, take it to the nearest authorised LG Electronics • service point or dealer for assistance. Always unplug the charger from the wall socket after the phone is fully charged to • save unnecessary power consumption of the charger. Actual battery life will depend on network configuration, product settings, usage • patterns, battery and environmental conditions. Make sure that no sharp-edged items such as animal's teeth or nails, come into • contact with the battery. This could cause a fire. Precautions for use of leather back cover This product is made of cattle hide and may have different creases and patterns • due to the properties of natural leather. If the product gets wet with any liquid (water, soda, seawater, rain, sweat, sunscreen, cosmetics, moisture, etc.), it may lose colour, change colour, or deform in shape.

  • Page 12: Laser Safety Statement

    When the leather is wet with rain or sweat, use caution and avoid contact with • clothes. It can cause any dye to become a stain. Due to the nature of leather, friction for long periods of time or excessive force may • damage the surface of the leather. Laser safety statement Caution! This product employs a laser system. To ensure proper use of this product, please read this owner's manual carefully and retain for future reference. Should the unit require maintenance, contact an authorised service centre.
