General Statement on Interface
Care must be taken when using the phone in close proximity to personal medical devices, such as pacemakers and hearing aids.
Pacemaker manufacturers recommend that a minimum separation of 15 cm be maintained between a mobile phone and a pacemaker to avoid potential interference with the pacemaker. To achieve this, use the phone on the opposite ear to your pacemaker and do not carry it in a breast pocket.
People with hearing aids or other cochlear implants may experience interfering noises when using wireless devices or when one is nearby.
The level of interference will depend on the type of hearing device and the distance from the interference source, increasing the separation between them may reduce the interference. You may also consult your hearing aid manufacturer to discuss alternatives.
Please consult your doctor and the device manufacturer to determine if operation of your phone may interfere with the operation of your medical device.
Switch off your wireless device when requested to do so in hospitals, clinics or health care facilities. These requests are designed to prevent possible interference with sensitive medical equipment.
Switch off your wireless device whenever you are instructed to do so by airport or airline staff.
Consult the airline staff about the use of wireless devices on board the aircraft. If your device offers a ‘flight mode’, this must be enabled prior to boarding an aircraft.
Interference in Cars
Please note that because of possible interference to electronic equipment, some vehicle manufacturers forbid the use of mobile phones in their vehicles unless a hands-free kit with an external antenna is included in the installation.
Petrol Stations and Explosive Atmospheres
In locations with potentially explosive atmospheres, obey all posted signs to turn off wireless devices such as your phone or other radio equipment.
Areas with potentially explosive atmospheres include fuelling areas, below decks on boats, fuel or chemical transfer or storage facilities, areas where the air contains chemicals or particles, such as grain, dust, or metal powders.
Blasting Caps and Areas
Power off your mobile phone or wireless device when in a blasting area or in areas posted power off “two- way radios” or “electronic devices” to avoid interfering with blasting operations.
Specific Absorption Rate (SAR)
Your mobile device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed not to exceed the limits for exposure to radio waves recommended by international guidelines. These guidelines were developed by the independent scientific organisation ICNIRP and include safety margins designed to assure the protection of all persons, regardless of age and health.
As SAR is measured utilising the device’s highest transmitting power, the actual SAR of this device while operating is typically below that indicated above. This is due to automatic changes to the power level of the device to ensure it only uses the minimum power required to communicate with the network.
* The tests are carried out in accordance with EN 62209-1:2006.
Body Worn Operation
Important safety information regarding radio frequency (RF) radiation exposure.
To ensure compliance with RF exposure guidelines the phone must be used with a minimum of 10 mm separation from the body.
Failure to observe these instructions could result in your RF exposure exceeding the relevant guideline limits.
System supports firmware upgrade only from official website or server. If user uses 3rd party ROM image and/or any other root method to upgrade firmware, it will cause phone instability and raise further security risks and pitfalls.
Please note that users are responsible for all software installed onto the phone after it has been received.
