A few practical rules about accessories and


Keep all accessories and enhancements out of the reach of
small children.

When you disconnect the power cord of any accessory or
enhancement, grasp and pull the plug, not the cord.

Check regularly that enhancements installed in a vehicle
are mounted and are operating properly.

Installation of any complex car enhancements must be
made by qualified personnel only.

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. To maintain
compliance with radio frequency exposure guidelines only use
enhancements approved by Nokia for use with this device.
When the device is on and being worn on the body, always use
an approved holder or carrying case.

Parts of the device are magnetic. Metallic materials may be
attracted to the device, and persons with a hearing aid should
not hold the device to the ear with the hearing aid. Always
secure the device in its holder, because metallic materials may
be attracted by the earpiece. Do not place credit cards or other

magnetic storage media near the device, because information
stored on them may be erased.

Medical devices

Operation of any radio transmitting equipment, including
wireless phones, may interfere with the functionality of
inadequately protected medical devices. 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 device 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 in. (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. Persons
with pacemakers should:

always keep the device more than 6 in. (15.3 cm) from
their pacemaker when the device is switched on;

not carry the device in a breast pocket; and

hold the device to the ear opposite the pacemaker to
minimise the potential for interference.

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

Additional safety information


Hearing aids

Some digital wireless devices 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 device, or install
the device in a vehicle. Faulty installation or service may be
dangerous and may invalidate any warranty that may apply to
the device. Check regularly that all wireless device 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 device, its parts, or
enhancements. For vehicles equipped with an air bag,
remember that air bags inflate 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.

Using your device while flying in aircraft is prohibited. Switch
off your device before boarding an aircraft. The use of wireless
teledevices in an aircraft may be dangerous to the operation
of the aircraft, disrupt the wireless telephone network, and
may be illegal.

Potentially explosive environments

Switch off your device 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 device at
refuelling 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.

Emergency calls

Important: Wireless phones, including this device,

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 device for essential
communications like medical emergencies.

To make an emergency call:


If the device is not on, switch it on. Check for adequate
signal strength.
Some networks may require that a valid SIM card is
properly inserted in the device.

If certain features are in use, you may first need to turn those
features off before you can make an emergency call. Consult
this guide or your service provider for more information.

When making an emergency call, give all the necessary
information as accurately as possible. Your wireless device
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) recommended by
international guidelines (ICNIRP). These limits are part of
comprehensive guidelines and establish permitted levels of RF
energy for the general population. The guidelines were
developed by independent scientific organisations through
periodic and thorough evaluation of scientific studies. The
guidelines include a substantial safety margin designed to
assure the safety of all persons, regardless of age and health.

The exposure standard for mobile devices employs a unit of
measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR.
The SAR limit stated in the international guidelines is 2.0 W/
kg*. Tests for SAR are conducted using standard operating

positions with the device transmitting at its highest certified
power level in all tested frequency bands. Although the SAR
is determined at the highest certified power level, the actual
SAR of the device while operating can be well below the
maximum value. This is because the device is designed to
operate at multiple power levels so as to use only the power
required to reach the network. In general, the closer you are
to a base station, the lower the power output of the device.

The highest SAR value for this device when tested for use at
the ear is 0.54 W/kg.

This device meets RF exposure guidelines when used either in
the normal use position against the ear or when positioned at
least 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 product at least 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

* The SAR limit for mobile devices used by the public is 2.0
watts/kilogram (W/kg) averaged over ten grams of body
tissue. The guidelines incorporate a substantial margin of
safety to give additional protection for the public and to
account for any variations in measurements. SAR values may
vary depending on national reporting requirements and the
network band. For SAR information in other regions please
look under product information at
