SAFETY AND WARRANTY
The SAR testing for Body-worn operation was performed with a
belt clip that provided a 20mm separation. The User’s Manual
indicates that any holsters/clips used with this device should contain
no metallic components.
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this model
phone with all reported SAR levels evaluated as in compliance with
the FCC RF exposure guidelines. SAR information on this model
phone is on file with the FCC and can be found under the Display
Grant section of http://www.fcc.gov/ oet/fccid after searching on
Additional information on Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) can be
found on the Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association
(CTIA) web-site at http://www.wow-com.com.
* In the United States and Canada, the SAR limit for mobile phones
used by the public is 1.6 watts/kg (W/kg) averaged over one gram
of tissue. The standard incorporates a sub-stantial margin of safety
to give additional protection for the public and to account for any
variations in measurements.
SAFETY AND WARRANTY
THIS MODEL PHONE MEETS THE GOVERNMENT’S
REQUIREMENTS FOR EXPOSURE TO RADIO WAVES.
Your wireless phone is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is
designed and manufactured not to exceed the emission limits for
exposure to radiofrequency (RF) energy set by the Federal
Communications Commission of the U.S. Government. These limits
are part of comprehensive guidelines and 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 include a substantial safety margin
designed to assure the safety of all persons, regardless of age and
The exposure standard for wireless mobile phones employs a unit
of measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR.
The SAR limit set by the FCC is 1.6 W/kg. * Tests for SAR are
conducted with the phone 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
level of the phone while operating can be well below the maximum
value. This is because the phone 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 wireless base station
antenna, the lower the power output.
Before a phone model is available for sale to the public, it must be
tested and certified to the FCC that it does not exceed the limit
established by the government adopted requirement for safe
exposure. The tests are performed in positions and locations (e.g.,
at the ear and worn on the body) as required by the FCC for each
model. The highest SAR value for this model phone when tested for
use at the ear is 1.28 W/Kg and when worn on the body, as
described in this user guide, is 0.418W/Kg. (Body-worn measure-
ments differ among phone models, depending upon available
accessories and FCC requirements). While there may be differences
between the SAR levels of various phones and at various positions,
they all meet the government requirement for safe exposure.
