A sum of 5 is considered acceptable for normal use. A sum of 6 is considered for
best use. In the above example, if a hearing aid meets
the M2 level rating and the wireless phone meets the M3
level rating, the sum of the two values equal M5. This
should provide the hearing aid user with “normal usage”
while using their hearing aid with the particular wireless
phone. “Normal usage” in this context is defined as a
signal quality that is acceptable for normal operation. The M mark is intended
to be synonymous with the U mark. The T mark is intended to be synonymous
with the UT mark. The M and T marks are recommended by the Alliance for
Telecommunications Industries Solutions (ATIS). The U and UT marks are
referenced in Section 20.19 of the FCC Rules. The HAC rating and measurement
procedure are described in the American National Standards Institute (ANSI)
C63.19 standard.

A very small percentage of individuals may experience epileptic seizures when
exposed to certain light patterns or flashing lights. Exposure to certain patterns
or backgrounds on a computer screen, or while playing video games, may induce
an epileptic seizure in these individuals. Certain conditions may induce previously
undetected epileptic symptoms even in persons who have no history of prior
seizures or epilepsy.

If you, or anyone in your family, have an epileptic condition, consult your physician
prior to playing. If you experience any of the following symptoms while playing
a video or computer game -- dizziness, altered vision, eye or muscle twitches,
loss of awareness, disorientation, any involuntary movement, or convulsions --
IMMEDIATELY discontinue use and consult your physician before resuming play.

Repetitive Motion Injuries
When you play games on your phone, you may experience occasional discomfort
in your hands, arms, shoulders, neck, or other parts of your body. Follow these
instructions to avoid problems such as tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, or
other musculoskeletal disorders:

• Take a minimum 15-minute break every hour of game playing.

• If your hands, wrists, or arms become tired or sore while playing, stop and rest

for several hours before playing again.

• If you continue to have sore hands, wrists, or arms during or after play, stop

playing and see a doctor.
