For Your Safety


Body-worn Operation

This device was tested for typical use with the back of the device kept 0.39 inches

(1.0 cm) from the body. To comply with FCC RF exposure requirements, a minimum

separation distance of 0.39 inches (1.0 cm) must be maintained between

the user’s body and the back of the device. Any belt-clips, holsters, and similar

accessories containing metallic components may not be used. Avoid the use of

accessories that cannot maintain 0.39 inches (1.0 cm) distance between the user’s

body and the back of the device and have not been tested for compliance with FCC

RF exposure limits.

Consumer Information about Radio Frequency


Your wireless device, which contains a radio transmitter and receiver, emits

radio frequency energy during use. The following consumer information

addresses commonly asked questions about the health effects of wireless


Are wireless devices safe?

Scientific research on the subject of wireless devices and radio frequency (“RF”)

energy has been conducted worldwide for many years, and continues. In the United

States, the Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) and the Federal Communications

Commission (“FCC”) set policies and procedures for wireless devices. The FDA

issued a website publication on health issues related to cell phone usage where it

states, “The scientific community at large… believes that the weight of scientific

evidence does not show an association between exposure to radiofrequency (RF)

from cell phones and adverse health outcomes. Still the scientific community

does recommend conducting additional research to address gaps in knowledge.

That research is being conducted around the world and FDA continues to

monitor developments in this field. You can access the joint FDA/FCC website at (under “c”in the subject index, select Cell Phones > Research).

You can also contact the FDA toll-free at (888) 463-6332 or (888) INFO-FDA.

In June 2000, the FDA entered into a cooperative research and development

agreement through which additional scientific research is being conducted. The FCC

issued its own website publication stating that “there is no scientific evidence that

proves that wireless device usage can lead to cancer or a variety of other problems,

including headaches, dizziness or memory loss.” This publication is available at or through the FCC at (888) 225-5322 or

(888) CALLFCC.
