Additional safety information

Operating environment

Remember to follow any special regulations in force in any area and always switch
off your device when its use is prohibited or when it may cause interference or
danger. Use the device only in its normal operating positions. This device meets
RF exposure guidelines when used either in the normal use position against the
ear or when positioned at least 7/8 inch (2.2 cm) 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 device at least 7/8 inch (2.2 cm) 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.

Medical devices

Operation of any radio transmitting equipment, including wireless phones, may
interfere with the functionality of inadequately protected medical phones. Consult
a physician or the manufacturer of the medical device to determine if they are
adequately shielded from external RF energy or if you have any questions. Switch
off your phone in health care facilities when any regulations posted in these areas
instruct you to do so. Hospitals or health care facilities may be using equipment
that could be sensitive to external RF energy.


Pacemaker manufacturers recommend that a minimum separation of 6 inches
(15.3 cm) be maintained between a wireless phone and a pacemaker to avoid
potential interference with the pacemaker. These recommendations are consistent
with the independent research by and recommendations of Wireless Technology
Research. To minimize the potential for interference, persons with pacemakers should

Always keep the phone more than 6 inches (15.3 cm) from their pacemaker
when the phone is switched on

Not carry the phone in a breast pocket

Hold the phone to the ear opposite the pacemaker to minimize the potential
for interference

If you have any reason to suspect that interference is taking place, switch off
your phone immediately.

Some digital wireless phones may interfere with some hearing aids. If interference
occurs, consult your service provider.


RF signals may affect improperly installed or inadequately shielded electronic
systems in motor vehicles such as electronic fuel injection systems, electronic
antiskid (antilock) braking systems, electronic speed control systems, air bag
systems. For more information, check with the manufacturer or its representative
of your vehicle or any equipment that has been added.

Only qualified personnel should service the phone, or install the phone in a vehicle.
Faulty installation or service may be dangerous and may invalidate any warranty
that may apply to the phone. Check regularly that all wireless phone equipment
in your vehicle is mounted and operating properly. Do not store or carry flammable
liquids, gases, or explosive materials in the same compartment as the phone, its
parts, or enhancements. For vehicles equipped with an air bag, remember that an
air bag inflates with great force. Do not place objects, including installed or portable
wireless equipment in the area over the air bag or in the air bag deployment area.
If in-vehicle wireless equipment is improperly installed and the air bag inflates,
serious injury could result.

Potentially explosive environments

Switch off your phone when in any area with a potentially explosive atmosphere
and obey all signs and instructions. Potentially explosive atmospheres include areas
where you would normally be advised to turn off your vehicle engine. Sparks in
such areas could cause an explosion or fire resulting in bodily injury or even death.
Switch off the phone at refueling points such as near gas pumps at service stations.
Observe restrictions on the use of radio equipment in fuel depots, storage, and
distribution areas, chemical plants or where blasting operations are in progress.
Areas with a potentially explosive atmosphere are often but not always clearly
marked. They include below deck on boats, chemical transfer or storage facilities,
vehicles using liquefied petroleum gas (such as propane or butane), and areas where
the air contains chemicals or particles such as grain, dust or metal powders.

FCC regulations prohibit using your wireless device while in the air. The use of
wireless telephones in an aircraft may be dangerous to the operation of the aircraft,
disrupt the wireless telephone network, and may be illegal.

Failure to observe these instructions may lead to suspension or denial of telephone
services to the offender, legal action, or both.

Emergency calls

Important: Wireless phones, including this phone, operate using radio
signals, wireless networks, landline networks, and user-programmed
functions. Because of this, connections in all conditions cannot be
guaranteed. You should never rely solely on any wireless phone for
essential communications like medical emergencies.

To make an emergency call, do the following:

1. If the phone is not on, switch it on. Check for adequate signal strength.

2. Press the end key as many times as needed to clear the display and ready the

phone for calls.

3. Enter the official emergency number for your present location. Emergency

numbers vary by location.

4. Press the call key.

If certain features are in use, you may first need to turn those features off before
you can make an emergency call. If the phone is in an offline or flight mode, you
must change the profile to activate the phone function before you can make an
emergency call. Consult this guide or your service provider. When making an
emergency call, give all the necessary information as accurately as possible. Your
wireless phone may be the only means of communication at the scene of an
accident. Do not end the call until given permission to do so.

Certification Information (SAR)


Your mobile device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed and
manufactured not to exceed the limits for exposure to radio frequency (RF) energy
recommended by international guidelines (ICNIRP). These limits establish permitted
levels of RF energy for the general population. The guidelines are based on standards
that were developed by independent scientific organizations through periodic and
thorough evaluation of scientific studies. The standards and guidelines include a
substantial safety margin designed to assure the safety of the public, regardless
of age and health and to account for any variations in measurements.

The exposure guidelines for mobile devices employ a unit of measurement known
as the Specific Absorption Rate or SAR. The SAR limit stated in the international
guidelines is 2.0 watts/kilogram (W/kg) averaged over ten grams of tissue. 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 actual SAR
level of an operating device can be well below the maximum value because the
device is designed to use only the power required to reach the network. That amount
changes depending on a number of factors such as how close you are to a network
base station. The highest SAR value when tested according to international testing
procedures for use at the ear for device type RH-66 is 0.75 W/kg. Your phone’s
device type is listed on the label located under the battery.

SAR values may vary depending on national reporting and testing requirements
and the network band. Use of device accessories and enhancements may result in
different SAR values. Additional SAR information may be provided under product
information at

USA and Canada: The SAR limit of USA (FCC) and Canada (IC) is 1.6 W/kg averaged
over one gram of tissue. Device type RH-66 has also been tested against this SAR
limit. The highest SAR value reported under this standard during product certification
for use at the ear is 1.20 W/kg and when properly worn on the body is 1.03 W/kg.
Information about this device can be found on the FCC's website at by searching the equipment authorization system
using FCC ID: QMNRH-66.
