Guidelines for safe and efficient
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-K520 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
• The highest SAR value for this model phone tested for use at the ear is
0.404 W/kg (10 g) and when worn on the body is 1.110 W/Kg (10 g).
Page: 254
Guidelines for safe and efficient use
• 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

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.
• Do not charge a handset near flammable material as the handset can
become hot and create a fire hazard.
Page: 255
Guidelines for safe and efficient use
• 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.

• 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

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.

• 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.
• 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

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.
