Important Information 2
Important Information
The following topics provide important information that should be read prior to using your HTC Bolt™.
Radio Frequency Exposure Operating
Instructions
This device was tested for compliance with the applicable FCC and Industry Canada specific absorption
rate (SAR) limits for radio frequency (RF) exposure during typical body-worn operations. To ensure that
RF exposure levels remain at or below the tested levels, use a belt-clip, holster, or similar accessory that
maintains a minimum separation distance of 1.0 cm between your body and the device, with either the
front or back of the device facing towards your body. Such accessories should not contain any metallic
components. Body-worn accessories that do not meet these specifications may not ensure compliance
with applicable SAR limits and their use should be avoided.
Important Note on Recoverable Data
Files and other data that have been deleted, cleared, removed, or erased from your device may still be
recoverable by third-party data recovery software. Even a factory reset may not permanently erase all
data from your phone, including personal information.
