Body-worn SAR testing has been carried out at a separation distance of
1.5 cm. To meet RF exposure guidelines during body-worn operation, the
device should be positioned at least this distance away from the body. If you
are not using an approved accessory ensure that whatever product is used
is free of any metal and that it positions the phone the indicated distance
away from the body.
The World Health Organization has stated that present scientific information
does not indicate the need for any special precautions for the use of mobile
devices. They recommend that if you are interested in further reducing your
exposure then you can easily do so by limiting your usage or simply using a
hands-free kit to keep the device away from the head and body.
For more information you can go to www.alcatelonetouch.com
Additional information about electromagnetic fields and public health are
available on the following site: http://www.who.int/peh-emf.
Your telephone is equipped with a built-in antenna. For optimal operation,
you should avoid touching it or degrading it.
As mobile devices offer a range of functions, they can be used in positions
other than against your ear. In such circumstances the device will be compliant
with the guidelines when used with headset or usb data cable. If you are using
another accessory ensure that whatever product is used is free of any metal
and that it positions the phone at least 1.5 cm away from the body.

0 6 # and keep it in a safe place. It may be requested by the police or
your operator if your telephone is stolen. This number allows your mobile
telephone to be blocked preventing a third person from using it, even with
a different SIM card.
There may be certain differences between the user manual description

Proof of compliance with international standards (ICNIRP) or with European

the user and any other person is an essential requirement of these standards
or this directive.
THIS DEVICE MEETS INTERNATIONAL GUIDELINES FOR EXPOSURE
TO RADIO WAVES
Your mobile device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed
not to exceed the limits for exposure to radio waves (radio frequency
electromagnetic fields) recommended by international guidelines. The
guidelines were developed by an independent scientific organization (ICNIRP)
and include a substantial safety margin designed to assure the safety of all
persons, regardless of age and health.
The radio wave exposure guidelines use a unit of measurement known as
the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit for mobile devices is
Tests for SAR are conducted using standard operating positions with the
device transmitting at its highest certified power level in all tested frequency
bands. The highest SAR values under the ICNIRP guidelines for this device
Maximum SAR for this model and conditions under which
it was recorded.
Head SAR GSM 900+Wi-Fi+Bluetooth 1.12 W/kg
Body-worn SAR GSM 900+Wi-Fi+Bluetooth 1.2 W/kg
During use, the actual SAR values for this device are usually well below the
values stated above. This is because, for purposes of system efficiency and to
minimize interference on the network, the operating power of your mobile
device is automatically decreased when full power is not needed for the call.
The lower the power output of the device, the lower its SAR value.
