Using Your Phone Near Other Electronic Devices

Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from radio frequency (RF) signals. However, certain electronic
equipment may not be shielded against the RF signals from your wireless phone. Consult the manufacturer to
discuss alternatives.

Implantable Medical Devices

A minimum separation of six (6) inches should be maintained between a handheld wireless phone and an
implantable medical device, such as a pacemaker or implantable cardioverter defibrillator, to avoid potential
interference with the device.

Persons who have such devices:

Should ALWAYS keep the phone more than six (6) inches from their implantable medical device when the phone is turned ON;

Should not carry the phone in a breast pocket;

Should use the ear opposite the implantable medical device to minimize the potential for interference;

Should turn the phone OFF immediately if there is any reason to suspect that interference is taking place;

Should read and follow the directions from the manufacturer of your implantable medical device. If you have any questions

about using your wireless phone with such a device, consult your health care provider.

FCC Hearing-Aid Compatibility (HAC) Regulations for Wireless Devices

On July 10, 2003, the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Report and Order in WT Docket 01-309
modified the exception of wireless phones under the Hearing Aid Compatibility Act of 1988 (HAC Act) to require
digital wireless phones be compatible with hearing-aids.

The intent of the HAC Act is to ensure reasonable access to telecommunications services for persons with hearing

While some wireless phones are used near some hearing devices (hearing aids and cochlear implants), users may
detect a buzzing, humming, or whining noise. Some hearing devices are more immune than others to this
interference noise, and phones also vary in the amount of interference they generate.
