Before Using Your Smartphone
Safety Warnings
Read the following safety warnings before using
your smartphone.
• This equipment is intended for use with
power supplied from the provided battery
charger(s) and/or power supply unit(s). Other
usage will invalidate any certification given
to this product and may be dangerous.
• Switch off your cell phone when in an
aircraft. Use of cell phone in an aircraft may
be dangerous to the operation of the aircraft,
could disrupt cellular networks, and may be
illegal. Failure to observe this warning may
lead to suspension or denial of cell phone
services to the offender, legal action, or both.
• Do not use the cell phone or cell phone
equipment when you are at a refueling point
or gas station.
• Observe restrictions on the use of radio
equipment in fuel depots, gas stations,
chemical plants, or where blasting
operations are in progress.
• When driving a vehicle, you MUST exercise
proper control of the vehicle at all times.
Observe the following safety precautions
while driving:
– Do not use a hand-held telephone or
microphone.
– While driving, find a safe place to stop
the vehicle before you use the phone.
– Do not speak into a hands-free
microphone if it will distract you from
driving.

– You MUST NOT stop on the hard
shoulder of a motorway to answer or
make a call, except in an emergency.
NOTE: In some areas where electric current
is known to fluctuate, it is recommended that
you connect the charger to an AVR (AC
Voltage Regulator) instead of connecting it
directly to a power outlet. Fluctuations in the
electric current may damage the charger
and/or the cell phone.
General Statement on RF Energy
Your cell phone has a transmitter and a receiver.
When the cell phone is on, it receives and transmits
radio frequency (RF) energy. When you
communicate using your phone, the system
handling your call controls the power level at which
your phone transmits RF energy.
Proper Disposal
The symbol of the crossed out bin
indicates that the product
(electrical and electronic
equipment) should not be placed
in municipal waste. Please check
local regulations for disposal of
electronic products.
IEEE 1725
1 Do not disassemble/open, crush, bend/
deform, or puncture/shred the battery.
2 Do not attempt to modify/remanufacture, or
insert foreign objects into the battery.
3 Do not immerse or expose the battery to
water/other liquids, fire, explosion, or other
hazards.
4 Use the battery only with the device for
which it is specified.
Page: 14
Before Using Your Smartphone
15
5 Use the battery only with charging systems
that have been qualified with IEEE-Std-1725-
2006 standard. Use of unqualified chargers
may present risk of fire, explosion, leakage,
or other hazards.
6 Do not short circuit the battery or allow
metallic conductive objects to contact
battery terminals.
7 Replace the battery only with another battery
that has been qualified with the IEEE-Std-
1725-2006 standard. Use of unqualified
batteries may present risk of fire, explosion,
leakage, or other hazards.
8 Promptly dispose of used batteries in
accordance with local regulations
9 Use of the battery by children should be
supervised.
10 Avoid dropping the phone or battery,
especially on hard surfaces. If you suspect
any damage to the phone or battery, take it to
a service center for inspection.
11 Improper use of the battery may result in fire,
explosion, or other hazards.
12 To charge the battery by connecting to a
USB port, the phone should only be
connected to charging systems that have the
USB-IF logo or have completed the USB-IF
compliance program.
FCC
FCC Warning
You are cautioned that changes or modifications
not expressly approved by the party responsible for
compliance could void your authority to operate the
equipment.
Cautions
In August 1996 the Federal Communications
Commission (FCC) of the United States with its
action in Report and Order FCC 96-326 adopted an
updated safety standard for human exposure to
radio frequency electromagnetic energy emitted by
FCC regulated transmitters. Those guidelines are
consistent with the safety standard previously set
by both U.S. and international standards bodies.
The design of this phone complies with the FCC
Page: 15
Before Using Your Smartphone
16
guidelines and these international standards. Use
only the supplied or an approved antenna.
Unauthorized antennas, modifications, or
attachments could impair call quality, damage the
phone, or result in violation of FCC regulations. Do
not use the phone with a damaged antenna. If a
damaged antenna comes into contact with the skin,
a minor burn may result. Contact your local dealer
for a replacement antenna.
Body-worn operation
This device was tested for typical body-worn
operations with the back of the phone kept 1.5 cm
away from the body. To maintain compliance with
FCC RF exposure requirements, use only belt-clips,
holsters or similar accessories that maintain a 2.0
cm separation distance between the user’s body
and the back of the phone, including the antenna.
The use of belt-clips, holsters and similar
accessories should not contain metallic
components in its assembly. The use of accessories
that do not satisfy these requirements may not
comply with FCC RF exposure requirements, and
should be avoided.
FCC ID: E2KV01B001
SAR: 1.09 W/kg over 1 g
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
and (2) this device must accept any interference
received, including interference that may cause
undesired operation.
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 will not occur in a particular
installation. If this equipment does cause harmful
interference to radio or television reception, which
can be determined by turning the equipment off and
Page: 16
Before Using Your Smartphone
17
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.
CAUTION: Do not use solvents, water, or
other liquids to clean your smartphone.
