This product meets applicable national SAR limits of 2.0 W/kg.
The specific maximum SAR values can be found on page 7 of this
user guide.
When carrying the product or using it while worn on your
body, either use an approved accessory such as a holster or
otherwise maintain a distance of 1.5 cm from the body to
ensure compliance with RF exposure requirements. Note
that the product may be transmitting even if you are not

Safety and use …………………………
We recommend that you read this chapter carefully before using your 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 when the vehicle is not parked.
When driving, do not use your 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 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 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 dashboard is adequately
shielded from mobile phone RF energy.
CONDITIONS OF USE: •
You are advised to switch off the telephone from time to time to optimise its performance.
Switch the phone off before boarding an aircraft.
Switch the 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 telephones can interfere with other electrical
or electronic devices, or equipment using radio frequency.
Switch the phone off when you are near gas or flammable liquids. Strictly obey all signs and
instructions posted in a fuel depot, petrol station, or chemical plant, or in any potentially explosive
atmosphere.
When the phone is switched on, it should be kept at least 15 cm from any medical device such as a
pacemaker, a hearing aid or insulin pump, etc. In particular when using the phone, you should hold
it against the ear on the opposite side to the device, if any.
To avoid hearing impairment, pick up the call before holding your phone to your ear. Also move
the handset away from your ear while using the “hands-free” mode because the amplified volume
might cause hearing damage.
Do not let children use the phone and/or play with the telephone and accessories without
supervision.
When replacing the cover please note that your phone may contain substances that could create
an allergic reaction.
Always handle your phone with care and keep it in a clean and dust-free place.
Do not allow your phone to be exposed to adverse weather or environmental conditions
(moisture, humidity, rain, infiltration of liquids, dust, sea air, etc). The manufacturer’s recommended
operating temperature range is -10°C to +55°C.
At over 55°C the legibility of the phone’s display may be impaired, though this is temporary and
not serious. 5 6
Emergency call numbers may not be reachable on all cellular networks. You should never rely only
on your phone for emergency calls.
Do not open, dismantle or attempt to repair your mobile phone yourself.
Do not drop, throw or bend your mobile phone.
Do not use the phone if the glass made screen, is damaged, cracked or broken to avoid any
injury.
Do not paint it.
Use only batteries, battery chargers, and accessories which are recommended by TCT Mobile
Limited and its affiliates and are compatible with your phone model. TCT Mobile Limited and its
affiliates disclaim any liability for damage caused by the use of other chargers or batteries.
Remember to make back-up copies or keep a written record of all important information stored
in your phone.
Some people may suffer epileptic seizures or blackouts when exposed to flashing lights, or when
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 phone or
enabling a flashing-lights feature on your phone.
Parents should monitor their children’s use of video games or other features that incorporate
flashing lights on the 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:
– Do not play or use a flashing-lights feature if you are tired or need sleep.
– Take a minimum of a 15-minute break hourly.
– Play in a room in which all lights are on.
– Play at the farthest distance possible from the screen.
– 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.
When you play games on your phone, you may experience occasional discomfort in your hands,
arms, shoulders, neck, or other parts of your body. Follow the instructions to avoid problems such
as tendinitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, or other musculoskeletal disorders.
Prolonged exposure to music at full volume on the music player may damage the listener`s
hearing.
Set your phone volume safely. Use only headphones recommended by TCT Mobile Limited and
its affiliates.
PRIVACY: •
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 telephone. 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 duplicate 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 authorisation 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.
BATTERY: •
Before removing the battery from your phone, please make sure that the phone is switched off.
Observe the following precautions for battery use:
– Do not attempt to open the battery (due to the risk of toxic fumes and burns).
– Do not puncture, disassemble or cause a short-circuit in a battery,
– Do not burn or dispose of a used battery in household rubbish or store it at temperatures
above 60°C.
Batteries must be disposed of in accordance with locally applicable environmental regulations. Only
use the battery for the purpose for which it was designed. Never use damaged batteries or those
not recommended by TCT Mobile Limited and/or its affiliates.
This symbol on your telephone, the battery and the accessories means that these
products must be taken to collection points at the end of their life:
– Municipal waste disposal centres with specific bins for these items of equipment
– Collection bins at points of sale.
They will then be recycled, preventing substances being disposed of in the environment,
so that their components can be reused.
In European Union countries:
These collection points are accessible free of charge.
All products with this sign must be brought to these collection points.
In non European Union jurisdictions:
Items of equipment with this symbol are not to be thrown into ordinary bins if your jurisdiction or
your region has suitable recycling and collection facilities; instead they are to be taken to collection
points for them to be recycled.
CAUTION: RISK OF EXPLOSION IF BATTERY IS REPLACED BY AN INCORRECT TYPE.
DISPOSE OF USED BATTERIES ACCORDING TO THE INSTRUCTIONS.
CHARGERS •
Mains powered chargers will operate within the temperature range of: 0°C to 40°C.
The chargers designed for your mobile phone meet with the standard for safety of information
technology equipment and office equipment use. They are also compliant to the ecodesign directive
2009/125/EC. Due to different applicable electrical specifications, a charger you purchased in one
jurisdiction may not work in another jurisdiction. They should be used for this purpose only.7 8
RADIO WAVES: •
Proof of compliance with international standards (ICNIRP) or with European Directive 1999/5/
EC (R&TTE) is required of all mobile phone models before they can be put on the market. The
protection of the health and safety for the user and any other person is an essential requirement
of these standards or this directive.
THIS DEVICE MEETS INTERNATIONAL GUIDELINES FOR EXPOSURE TO RADIO WAVES.
Your mobile device 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. The guidelines were developed by an independent scientific organization (ICNIRP) and
include a substantial safety margin designed to assure the safety of all persons, regardless of age
and health.
The radio wave exposure guidelines use a unit of measurement known as the Specific Absorption
Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit for mobile devices is 2 W/kg.
Tests for SAR are conducted using standard operating positions with the device transmitting at
its highest certified power level in all tested frequency bands. The highest SAR values under the
ICNIRP guidelines for this device model are:
Maximum SAR for this model and conditions under which it was recorded.
Head SAR UMTS 2100 + Wi-Fi + Bluetooth 0.586 W/kg
Body-worn
SAR
GSM 900 + Wi-Fi + Bluetooth 0.596 W/kg
During use, the actual SAR values for this device are usually well below the values stated above.
This is because, for purposes of system efficiency and to minimize interference on the network, the
operating power of your mobile device is automatically decreased when full power is not needed
for the call. The lower the power output of the device, the lower its SAR value.
Body-worn SAR testing has been carried out at a separation distance of 1.5 cm. To meet RF
exposure guidelines during body-worn operation, the device should be positioned at least this
distance away from the body. If you are not using an approved accessory ensure that whatever
product is used is free of any metal and that it positions the phone the indicated distance away
from the body.
Organizations such as the World Health Organization and the US Food and Drug Administration
have stated that if people are concerned and want to reduce their exposure they could use a
hands-free device to keep the phone away from the head and body during phone calls, or reduce
the amount of time spent on the phone.
For more information you can go to www.alcatelonetouch.com
Additional information about electromagnetic fields and public health are available on the following
site: http://www.who.int/peh-emf.
Your telephone 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 phone at least 1.5 cm away from the body.
