The battery must be installed according to the polarity.

If the battery is worn, it must be removed from the product.

The battery must be disposed of safely. Always use
the collection bins provided (check with your dealer) to
protect the environment.

The European directive 2002/96/EC on Waste Electrical and
Electronic Equipment (WEEE), requires that old household electrical
appliances must not be disposed of in the normal unsorted municipal 4
waste stream. It is asked to dispose of them in a repository for this
purpose for recycling.

Switch the phone off where the use of mobi le telephones is not
allowed or where there is a risk of causing interference or danger, for
example on board an aircraft, near medical equipment, fuel,
chemicals or blasting sites.

Check the current laws and regulations regarding the use of mobile
phones in the areas where you drive.
• Do not handle the telephone when driving.
• Concentrate fully on the driving
• Use a hands-free kit whenever possible
• Leave the road and park up before making or receiving a
call, if the driving conditions allow.
• Radio signals could affect some of the car’s electronic
systems such as the audio stereo and alarm systems.
• If the car is equipped with an airbag, do not hinder its
deployment with fixed or wireless equipment. This could result
in serious injury due to inadequate performance.

All wireless devices are susceptible to interference which may affect
their performance.

Only qualified people are authorised to install or repair this product

an emergency call.
Check with your local service provider. 6
Precautions for use

This mobile phone meets guidelines concerning the exposure to
radio waves.
Your mobile phone is a radio transmitter and receiver. It was designed
to meet the limits recommended by international guideline s to limit the
exposure to radio waves. These guidelines were developed by and
independant scientific organisation, The ICNIRP ; and include safety
margins designed to ensure the protection of all, regardless of age
and health.
The recommendations on exposure guidelines for mobile phones
employ a unit of measure known as the Specific absorbtion rate or
SAR. The SAR limit defined in the ICNIRP recommendations is 2.0
watts/kilogramme (W/kg) averaged over 10 grams of tissue. In tests
to determine the SAR, the equipment is used in standard usage
positions at its highest certified power level in all tested frequency
bands. The actual SAR level of a device in use may be lower that the
maximum value because the equipment is designed to only use the
necessary power required to reach the network. That amount
changes depending on a number of factors such as the distance from
a network base station.

Radio frequency interference
Radio frequency output from electronic devices can interfere with
other electronic equipment and cause mulfunctions. Although this
phone has been deisigned in accordance with EU regulations on
radio frequency emission, telephone wireless transmitters and
electrical circuits can cause interference with other electronic
equipment. We therefore recommend taking the following
precautions :

Aircraft : Wireless equipment can cause interference in aircraft.
• Turn off your telephone before boarding the aircraft
• Do not use on the ground until allowed to do so by the
flight crew.

Vehicles : Telephone radio frequency emissions can affect the
electronic systems of motor vehicles. In relation to your vehicle, check
with the manufacturer or dealer.

Medical implants :
Medical equipment manufacturers recommend a minimum distance
of 15 centimetres between a wireless device and an implanted
medical device such as a pacemaker or defibrillator to avoid any
interference with the medical device. It is recommended that people 8
fitted with such devices :
-Always keep wireless equipment more than 15cm away from
the medical device.
-Never carry wirless equipment in a breast pocket.
-Place such equipment at the opposite ear to the medical
-Turn off the wireless equipment if they think it is interfering with
their device
-Follow the instructions provided by the medical implant

If you are fitted with a medical implant and have any questions related
to the the use of your mobile/wireless equipment, you should consult
your doctor

Hearing :
Warning: Using a headset risks not be able to correctly hear ou tside
sounds. Do not use a headset when it could endanger your safety.
Some mobile devices can interfere with the proper operation of
hearing aids.
Other medical devices : 9
Radio transmitting equipment including mobile phones may
interfere with the proper operation of insufficiently protected medical
equipment. Consult a doctor or the medical equipment manufacturer
to find out out whether the equipment is sufficiently protected from
external radio wave signals. Turn of your device where required by
regulations, particularly in hospitals.

Health facilities : Hospitals and health facilities may be using
equipment which is particularly sensitive to external radio frequency
emissions. Turn off the telephone when staff or notices tell you to.

Blasting sites and marked areas :
Turn off your device in potentially explosive areas. Follow all official
instructions. Sparks in such areas can cause an explosion or a fire,
resulting in serious injury or death. Turn off your equipment in
petrol/gas stations, especially when near the fuel pumps. Strictly
follow usage restrictions in fuel depots, chemical plants or in places
using explosives.
Potentially explosive areas are often, but not always, clearly signed.
These include areas where it is normally considered advisabl e to turn
of vehicle engines, the area below deck on ships, chemical storage or 10
transfer plants, and areas where the air contains chemical products or
particles, such as grain, dust and metal powder. Check with the
makers of LPG (such as propane or butane) vehicles that the device
can be used safely in their vicinity.

All our phones conform to international standards and regulations,
and if need be national ones, with a view to limiting user exposure to
electromagnetic fields. These standards and regulations were
adopted after the completion of extensive scientific research. This
research established no link between the use of the mobile phone
and any adverse effects on health if the device is used in accordance
with standard practices.
However if you would like to reduce the level of exposure to radio
frequency radiation you can follow the following rules :
-Call when reception conditions are good to lessen the amount of
radiation. To do this, avoid calling from underground car parks or
when travelling by train or car.
-Call when the telephone connection is at its best (displayed by
maximum bars of network reception)
-Use a hands-free kit to ensure the phone is kept away from pregnant
women’s bellys and adolescents’ lower abdomens. 11

Operating environment
This equipment conforms to the recommendations on the exposure to
radio waves when it is used in its normal position next to the ear or at
a minimal distance of 1.5cm. When a case, belt clip or holder is used
to carry the phone on the body, these should not c ontain metal and
should position the equipment slightly away from the body.
Sending data files or messages requires a good quality network
connection. The sending of files or messages can be delayed until
such a connection becomes possible. Follow the instructions
according to the delay as the transmission hasn’t been achieved.
