Guidelines for safe and efficient use
Please read these simple guidelines. Not following these guidelines may
be dangerous or illegal.
Should a fault occur, a software tool is built into your device that will
gather a fault log. This tool gathers only data specific to the fault, such as
signal strength, cell ID position in sudden call drop and applications loaded.
The log is used only to help determine the cause of the fault. These logs
are encrypted and can only be accessed by an authorised LG Repair centre
should you need to return your device for repair.
Exposure to radio frequency energy
Radio wave exposure and Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) information.
This mobile phone model LG-K120E has been designed to comply with
applicable safety requirements for exposure to radio waves. These
requirements are based on scientific guidelines that include safety
margins designed to assure the safety of all persons, regardless of age
and health.
•	 The radio wave exposure guidelines employ a unit of measurement
known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. Tests for SAR are
conducted using standardised methods with the phone transmitting
at its highest certified power level in all used frequency bands.
•	 While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various LG
phone models, they are all designed to meet the relevant guidelines
for exposure to radio waves.
•	 The SAR limit recommended by the International Commission on Non-
Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) is 2 W/kg averaged over 10 g
of tissue.
•	 The highest SAR value for this model phone tested for use at the ear
is 0.604 W/kg (10 g) and when worn on the body is 1.190 W/Kg
(10 g).
Page: 190
 6
•	 This device meets RF exposure guidelines when used either in the
normal use position against the ear or when positioned at least 5 mm
away from the body. When a carry case, belt clip or holder is used for
body-worn operation, it should not contain metal and should position
the product at least 5 mm away from your body. In order to transmit
data files or messages, this device requires a quality connection to
the network. In some cases, transmission of data files or messages
may be delayed until such a connection is available. Ensure the above
separation distance instructions are followed until the transmission is
completed.
Product care and maintenance
•	 Always use genuine LG batteries, chargers and accessories approved
for use with this particular phone model. The use of any other types
may invalidate any approval or warranty applying to the phone and
may be dangerous.
•	 Some contents and illustrations may differ from your device without
prior notice.
•	 Do not disassemble this unit. Take it to a qualified service technician
when repair work is required.
•	 Repairs under warranty, at LG's discretion, may include replacement
parts or boards that are either new or reconditioned, provided that
they have functionality equal to that of the parts being replaced.
•	 Keep away from electrical appliances such as TVs, radios and personal
computers.
•	 The unit should be kept away from heat sources such as radiators or
cookers.
•	 Do not drop.
•	 Do not subject this unit to mechanical vibration or shock.
•	 Switch off the phone in any area where you are required to by special
regulations. For example, do not use your phone in hospitals as it may
affect sensitive medical equipment.
•	 Do not handle the phone with wet hands while it is being charged. It
may cause an electric shock and can seriously damage your phone.
Page: 191
 7
•	 Do not charge a handset near flammable material as the handset can
become hot and create a fire hazard.
•	 Use a dry cloth to clean the exterior of the unit (do not use solvents
such as benzene, thinner or alcohol).
•	 Do not charge the phone when it is on soft furnishings.
•	 The phone should be charged in a well ventilated area.
•	 Do not subject this unit to excessive smoke or dust.
•	 Do not keep the phone next to credit cards or transport tickets; it can
affect the information on the magnetic strips.
•	 Do not tap the screen with a sharp object as it may damage the
phone.
•	 Do not expose the phone to liquid or moisture.
•	 Use accessories like earphones cautiously. Do not touch the antenna
unnecessarily.
•	 Do not use, touch or attempt to remove or fix broken, chipped or
cracked glass. Damage to the glass display due to abuse or misuse is
not covered under the warranty.
•	 Your phone is an electronic device that generates heat during normal
operation. Extremely prolonged, direct skin contact in the absence
of adequate ventilation may result in discomfort or minor burns.
Therefore, use care when handling your phone during or immediately
after operation.
•	 If your phone gets wet, immediately unplug it to dry off completely.
Do not attempt to accelerate the drying process with an external
heating source, such as an oven, microwave or hair dryer.
•	 The liquid in your wet phone, changes the colour of the product label
inside your phone. Damage to your device as a result of exposure to
liquid is not covered under your warranty.

Efficient phone operation
Electronics devices
All mobile phones may receive interference, which could affect
performance.
•	 Do not use your mobile phone near medical equipment without
requesting permission. Avoid placing the phone over pacemakers, for
example, in your breast pocket.
•	 Some hearing aids might be disturbed by mobile phones.
•	 Minor interference may affect TVs, radios, PCs etc.
•	 Use your phone in temperatures between 0 ºC and 40 ºC, if possible.
Exposing your phone to extremely low or high temperatures may
result in damage, malfunction, or even explosion.
Road safety
Check the laws and regulations on the use of mobile phones in the area
when you drive.
•	 Do not use a hand-held phone while driving.
•	 Give full attention to driving.
•	 Pull off the road and park before making or answering a call if driving
conditions so require.
•	 RF energy may affect some electronic systems in your vehicle such as
car stereos and safety equipment.
•	 When your vehicle is equipped with an air bag, do not obstruct with
installed or portable wireless equipment. It can cause the air bag to
fail or cause serious injury due to improper performance.
•	 If you are listening to music whilst out and about, please ensure that
the volume is at a reasonable level so that you are aware of your
surroundings. This is of particular importance when near roads.
Page: 193

Avoid damage to your hearing
To prevent possible hearing damage, do not listen at high volume
levels for long periods.
Damage to your hearing can occur if you are exposed to loud sound for
long periods of time. We therefore recommend that you do not turn on or
off the handset close to your ear. We also recommend that music and call
volumes are set to a reasonable level.
•	 When using headphones, turn the volume down if you cannot hear
the people speaking near you, or if the person sitting next to you can
hear what you are listening to.
NOTE
•	 Excessive sound pressure from earphones and headphones can cause hearing
loss.
Glass Parts
Some parts of your mobile device are made of glass. This glass could
break if your mobile device is dropped on a hard surface or receives
a substantial impact. If the glass breaks, do not touch or attempt to
remove it. Stop using your mobile device until the glass is replaced by an
authorised service provider.
Blasting area
Do not use the phone where blasting is in progress. Observe restrictions
and follow any regulations or rules.
Potentially explosive atmospheres
•	 Do not use your phone at a refueling point.
•	 Do not use near fuel or chemicals.
•	 Do not transport or store flammable gas, liquid or explosives in
the same compartment of your vehicle as your mobile phone or
accessories.
Page: 194
 10
In aircraft
Wireless devices can cause interference in aircraft.
•	 Turn your mobile phone off before boarding any aircraft.
•	 Do not use it on the ground without permission from the crew.
Children
Keep the phone in a safe place out of the reach of small children. It
includes small parts which may cause a choking hazard if detached.
Emergency calls
Emergency calls may not be available on all mobile networks. Therefore
you should never depend solely on your phone for emergency calls. Check
with your local service provider.
Battery information and care
•	 You do not need to completely discharge the battery before
recharging. Unlike other battery systems, there is no memory effect
that could compromise the battery's performance.
•	 Use only LG batteries and chargers. LG chargers are designed to
maximise the battery life.
•	 Do not disassemble or short-circuit the battery.
•	 Keep the metal contacts of the battery clean.
•	 Replace the battery when it no longer provides acceptable
performance. The battery pack may be recharged hundreds of times
before it needs replacing.
•	 Recharge the battery if it has not been used for a long time to
maximise usability.
•	 Do not expose the battery charger to direct sunlight or use it in high
humidity, such as in the bathroom.
•	 Do not leave the battery in hot or cold places, as this may deteriorate
battery performance.
•	 Risk of explosion if battery is replaced by an incorrect type. Dispose of
used batteries according to the instructions.
Page: 195
 11
•	 If you need to replace the battery, take it to the nearest authorised
LG Electronics service point or dealer for assistance.
•	 Always unplug the charger from the wall socket after the phone is
fully charged to save unnecessary power consumption of the charger.
•	 Actual battery life will depend on network configuration, product
settings, usage patterns, battery and environmental conditions.
•	 Make sure that no sharp-edged items such as animal's teeth or nails,
come into contact with the battery. This could cause a fire.
