Radio waves ……………………………..
THIS PHONE MEETS THE GOVERNMENT’S
REQUIREMENTS FOR EXPOSURE TO RADIO WAVES.
Your phone is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is
designed and manufactured not to exceed the emission
limits for exposure to radio-frequency (RF) energy.
These limits are part of comprehensive guidelines and
establish permitted levels of RF energy for the general
population. The guidelines are based on standards that
were developed by independent scientific organizations
through periodic and thorough evaluation of scientific
studies. These guidelines include a substantial safety
margin designed to ensure the safety of all persons,
regardless of age and health.
The exposure standard for phones employs a unit of
measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate,
or SAR. The SAR limit set by public authorities such
as the Federal Communications Commission of the
US Government (FCC), or by Innovation, Science and
Economic Development Canada (ISEDC), is 1.6 W/kg
averaged over 1 gram of body tissue. Tests for SAR are
conducted using standard operating positions with the
phone transmitting at its highest certified power level
in all tested frequency bands.
This device is complied with SAR for general population
/uncontrolled exposure limits in ANSI/IEEE C95.1-
1992 and had been tested in accordance with the
measurement methods and procedures specified in
IEEE1528.
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for
this model phone with all reported SAR levels evaluated
as in compliance with the FCC RF exposure guidelines.
SAR information on this model phone is on file with
the FCC and can be found under the Display Grant
section of www.fcc.gov/oet/ea/fccid after searching on
FCC ID : 2ACCJH105.15 16
The World Health Organization (WHO) considers that
present scientific information does not indicate the
need for any special precautions for use of phones. If
individuals are concerned, they may choose to limit
their own or their children’s RF exposure by limiting the
length of calls, or using “hands-free” devices to keep
phones away from the head and body. Additional WHO
information about electromagnetic fields and public
health are available on the following website: http://
www.who.int/peh-emf.
Note: This equipment has been tested and found
to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device
pursuant to part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits
are designed to provide reasonable protection against
harmful interference in a residential installation. This
equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio
frequency energy and, if not installed and used in
accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful
interference to radio communications. However, there
is no guarantee that interference to radio or television
reception, which can be determined by turning the
equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to
correct the interference by one or more of the following
measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna;
• Increase the separation between the equipment and
receiver;
Although the SAR is determined at the highest certified
power level, the actual SAR level of the phone while
operating can be well below the maximum value. This
is because the phone is designed to operate at multiple
power levels so as to use only the power required
to reach the network. In general, the closer you are
to a wireless base station antenna, the lower the
power output of the phone. Before a phone model is
available for sale to the public, compliance with national
regulations and standards must be shown.
The highest SAR value for 5053A when tested is 0.53
W/Kg for use at the ear and 1.33 W/Kg for use close
to the body.
While there may be differences between the SAR
levels of various phones and at various positions, they
all meet the government requirement for RF exposure.
For body-worn operation, the phone meets FCC RF
exposure guidelines provided that it is used with a non-
metallic accessory with the handset at least 15 mm
from the body. Use of other accessories may not ensure
compliance with FCC RF exposure guidelines.
Additional information on SAR can be found on the
Cellular Telecommunications & Internet Association
(CTIA) Web site: http:/ /www.ctia.org/17 18
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit
different from that to which the receiver is connected;
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/ TV
technician for help.
Changes or modifications not expressly approved by
the party responsible for compliance could void the
user’s authority to operate the equipment.
For the receiver devices associated with the operation
of a licensed radio service (e.g. FM broadcast), they
bear the following statement:
This phone complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules.
Operation is subject to the following two conditions:
• This device may not cause harmful interference;
• This device must accept any interference received,
including interference that may cause undesired
operation.
Your phone is equipped with a built-in antenna. For
optimal operation, you should avoid touching it or
degrading it.
As mobile devices offer a range of functions, they can
be used in positions other than against your ear. In such
circumstances the device will be compliant with the
guidelines when used with a headset or usb data cable.
If you are using another accessory ensure that whatever
product is used is free of any metal and that it positions
the phone at least 15 mm away from the body.
Please note by using the device some of your
personal data may be shared with the main device.

US Information Concerning the Federal
Communications Commission (“FCC”)
Requirements for Hearing Aid Compatibility with
Wireless Devices
When wireless devices are used near hearing devices
(such as hearing aids and cochlear implants), users may
detect a buzzing, humming, or whining noise. Some
hearing devices are more immune than others to this
interference, and wireless devices also vary in the
amount of interference that they generate.
The wireless telephone industry has developed ratings
to assist hearing device users in finding wireless devices
that may be compatible with their hearing devices. Not
all wireless devices have been rated. Wireless devices
that are rated will have the rating displayed on the box
together with other relevant approval markings.
The ratings are not guarantees. Results will vary
depending on the user’s hearing device and hearing
loss. If your hearing device is vulnerable to interference,
you may not be able to use a rated wireless device
successfully. Consulting with your hearing health
professional and testing the wireless device with your
hearing device is the best way to evaluate it for your
personal needs.23 24
This smartphone has been tested and rated for use
with hearing aids for some of the wireless technologies
that the smartphone uses. However, other wireless
technologies may be used in this smartphone that
have not been tested for use with hearing aids. It
is important to try the different features of your
smartphone thoroughly and in different locations to
determine if you hear any interfering noise when using
this smartphone with your hearing aid or cochlear
implant. Consult your wireless service provider about
its return and exchange policies, and for information
about hearing aid compatibility.
Hearing aid compatibility rating for this smartphone:
M4 Only.
How the ratings work
M-Ratings: Wireless devices rated M3 or M4 meet
FCC requirements and are likely to generate less
interference to hearing devices than wireless devices
that are not labeled. M4 is the better or higher of the
two ratings.
T-Ratings: Wireless devices rated T3 or T4 meet FCC
requirements and are likely to be more usable with
a hearing device’s telecoil (“T Switch” or “Telephone
Switch”) than unrated wireless devices. T4 is the better
or higher of the two ratings. (Note that not all hearing
devices have telecoils in them.)
Hearing devices may also be measured for immunity
to this type of interference. Your hearing device
manufacturer or hearing health professional may help
you find results for your hearing device. The more
immune your hearing aid is, the less likely you are to
experience interference noise from wireless devices.
For more information about the actions that the FCC
has taken with regard to hearing aid compatibility with
wireless devices and other steps that the FCC has taken
to ensure that individuals with disabilities have access
to telecommunications services, visit www.fcc.gov/
