equipment. Follow all airline regulations and turn off
your phone or switch to a mode that disables the
wireless functions when directed by airline personnel.
Protect batteries and chargers from damage
Avoid exposing batteries to very cold or very hot •
temperatures (below 0° C/32° F or above 45° C/
113° F). Extreme temperatures can reduce the
charging capacity and life of your batteries.
Prevent batteries from contacting metal objects, •
as this can create a connection between the + and
– terminals of your batteries and lead to temporary or
permanent battery damage.
Never use a damaged charger or battery.•
Handle your phone carefully and sensibly
Do not disassemble your phone due to a risk of •
Do not allow your phone to get wet—liquids can •

Avoid interference with other electronic devices
Your phone emits radio frequency (RF) signals that
may interfere with unshielded or improperly shielded
electronic equipment, such as pacemakers, hearing
aids, medical devices, and other electronic devices in
homes or vehicles. Consult the manufacturers of your
electronic devices to solve any interference problems
Important usage information

Speci c Absorption Rate (SAR) certi cation
Your phone conforms to European Union (EU)
standards that limit human exposure to radio frequency
(RF) energy emitted by radio and telecommunications
equipment. These standards prevent the sale of mobile
phones that exceed a maximum exposure level (known
as the Speci c Absorption Rate, or SAR) of 2.0 watts
During testing, the maximum SAR recorded for this
model was 0.761 watts per kilogram. In normal use, the
actual SAR is likely to be much lower, as the phone has
been designed to emit only the RF energy necessary
to transmit a signal to the nearest base station. By
automatically emitting lower levels when possible, your
phone reduces your overall exposure to RF energy.
The Declaration of Conformity of this manual
demonstrates your phones compliance with the
European Radio & Terminal Telecommunications
Equipment (R&TTE) directive. For more information
about the SAR and related EU standards, visit the
Samsung mobile phone website.
Drive safely at all times
Avoid using your phone while driving and obey all
regulations that restrict the use of mobile phones while
driving. Use hands-free accessories to increase your
safety when possible.
Follow all safety warnings and regulations
Comply with any regulations that restrict the use of a
mobile phone in a certain area.
Use only Samsung-approved accessories
Using incompatible accessories may damage your
phone or cause injury.

phones and pacemakers to avoid potential interference,
as recommended by manufacturers and the independent
research group, Wireless Technology Research. If you
have any reason to suspect that your phone is interfering
with a pacemaker or other medical device, turn off the
phone immediately and contact the manufacturer of the
pacemaker or medical device for guidance.
Ensure maximum battery and charger life
Avoid charging batteries for more than a week, as •
overcharging may shorten battery life.
Over time, unused batteries will discharge and must be •
recharged before use.
Disconnect chargers from power sources when not •
Use batteries only for their intended purpose.•
Handle SIM cards and memory cards with care
Do not remove a card while the phone is transferring •
or accessing information, as this could result in loss of
