Safety and use …………………………
We recommend that you read this chapter carefully before using your mobile phone. The
manufacturer disclaims any liability for damage, which may result as a consequence of improper use
or use contrary to the instructions contained herein.
TRAFFIC SAFETY: �
Given that studies show that using a mobile phone while driving a vehicle constitutes a real risk,
even when the hands-free kit is used (car kit, headset…), drivers are requested to refrain from using
their mobile phone when the vehicle is not parked. Check the laws and regulations on the use of
wireless mobile phones and their accessories in the areas where you drive. Always obey them. The
use of these devices may be prohibited or restricted in certain areas.
When driving, do not use your mobile phone and headphone to listen to music or to the radio.
Using a headphone can be dangerous and forbidden in some areas.
When switched on, your mobile phone emits electromagnetic waves that can interfere with the
vehicle’s electronic systems such as ABS anti-lock brakes or airbags. To ensure that there is no
problem:
– Do not place your mobile phone on top of the dashboard or within an airbag deployment area,
– Check with your car dealer or the car manufacturer to make sure that the car’s electronic
devices are shielded from mobile phone RF energy.
CONDITIONS OF USE: �
You are advised to switch off the mobile phone from time to time to optimize its performance.
Remember to abide by local authority rules of mobile phone use on aircrafts.
Operational Warnings: Obey all posted signs when using mobile devices in public areas.
Follow Instructions to Avoid Interference Problems: Turn off your mobile device in any location
where posted notices instruct you to do so. In an aircraft, turn off your mobile device whenever
instructed to do so by airline staff. If your mobile device offers an airplane mode or similar feature,
consult airline staff about using it in flight.
Switch the mobile phone off when you are in health care facilities, except in designated areas. As with
many other types of equipment now in regular use, mobile phones can interfere with other electrical or
electronic devices, or equipment using radio frequency.

playing video games. These seizures or blackouts may occur even if a person never had a previous
seizure or blackout. If you have experienced seizures or blackouts, or if you have a family history of
such occurrences, please consult your doctor before playing video games on your mobile phone or
enabling a flashing-lights feature on your mobile phone. Parents should monitor their children’s use
of video games or other features that incorporate flashing lights on the mobile phones. All persons
should discontinue use and consult a doctor if any of the following symptoms occur: convulsion,
eye or muscle twitching, loss of awareness, involuntary movements, or disorientation. To limit the
likelihood of such symptoms, please take the following safety precautions:
– Play at the farthest distance possible from the screen.
When you play games on your mobile phone, you may experience occasional discomfort in your hands,
arms, shoulders, neck, or other parts of your body. Follow these instructions to avoid problems such as
tendinitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, or other musculoskeletal disorders:
– Take a minimum of a 15-minute break every hour of game playing.
– If your hands, wrists, or arms become tired or sore while playing, stop and rest for several
hours before playing again.
– If you continue to have sore hands, wrists, or arms during or after playing, stop the game and see
a doctor.

Prolonged exposure to music at full volume using the music player may damage your hearing. Set
your mobile phone’s volume to it’s lowest setting prior to inserting headphones in your ears and

Please note that you must respect the laws and regulations in force in your jurisdiction or other
jurisdiction(s) where you will use your mobile phone regarding taking photographs and recording
sounds with your mobile phone. Pursuant to such laws and regulations, it may be strictly forbidden
to take photographs and/or to record the voices of other people or any of their personal attributes,
and reproduce or distribute them, as this may be considered to be an invasion of privacy.
It is the user’s sole responsibility to ensure that prior authorization be obtained, if necessary, in
order to record private or confidential conversations or take a photograph of another person;
the manufacturer, the seller or vendor of your mobile phone (including the operator) disclaim any
liability which may result from the improper use of the mobile phone.

Travel charger: Input: 100-240 V, 50/60 Hz, 0.15 A
Output: 5 V, 1000 mA
Battery: Lithium 1500 mAh
RADIO WAVES: �
THIS MOBILE PHONE MEETS THE GOVERNMENT’S REQUIREMENTS FOR EXPOSURE TO
RADIO WAVES.7 8
Your mobile 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 mobile 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 Industry Canada, is 1.6 W/kg averaged over 1
gram of body tissue. T ests for SAR are conducted using standard operating positions with the mobile
phone transmitting at its highest certified power level in all tested frequency bands.
Although the SAR is determined at the highest certified power level, the actual SAR level of the
mobile phone while operating can be well below the maximum value. This is because the mobile
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 mobile phone. Before a mobile phone model is available for sale to the public,
compliance with national regulations and standards must be shown.
The highest SAR value for this model mobile phone when tested is 0.932 W/Kg (ONE TOUCH
991A), 1.03 W/Kg (ONE TOUCH 991S) for use at the ear and 1.08 W/Kg (ONE TOUCH 991A),
1.27 W/Kg (ONE TOUCH 991S) for use close to the body.
While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various mobile phones and at
various positions, they all meet the government requirement for RF exposure. For body-
worn operation, the mobile phone meets FCC RF exposure guidelines provided that it
is used with a non-metallic accessory with the handset at least 10 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.phonefacts.net
The World Health Organization (WHO) considers that present scientific information does not
indicate the need for any special precautions for use of mobile phones. If individuals are concerned,
they might choose to limit their own or their children’s RF exposure by limiting the length of calls,
or using “hands-free” devices to keep mobile phones away from the head and body. (fact sheet
n°193). 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.
– 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 device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the condition that this
device does not cause harmful interference.
For other devices, they bear the following statement:
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two
conditions:
(1) This device may not cause harmful interference
(2) This device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause
undesired operation.
Your mobile 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 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 mobile phone at least 10 mm away from the body.
