4A. Important Safety Information

Additional Safety Information

Do Not Use the PC Functions of Your Device While Driving or Walking

Never use the personal computer functions of your device while driving an automobile or any other moving
vehicle. Always pull out of traffic and come to a stop in a legally permissible and safe location before using
your device. Failure to do so could result in serious bodily injury in a traffic accident.

When driving:

Never place your device on the passenger seat or anyplace else in the car where it can become a
projectile during a collision or stop.

An air bag inflates with great force. DO NOT place objects, including either 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.

Never store or transport flammable liquids, gases or explosive materials in the same compartment of your
automobile as the device or any of its accessories, as possible sparking in the device could cause ignition
or explosion.

Never use your device while walking. Usage while walking could result in bodily injury caused by inattention
to automobile traffic or other pedestrian hazards.

Using The Phone While Driving Is Extremely Dangerous

Talking on or using your device while driving is extremely dangerous and is illegal in some states.
Remember, safety comes first. Check the laws and regulations on the use of phones in the areas where you
drive. Always obey them.

If you must use the phone function while driving, please:

Give full attention to driving. Driving safely is your first responsibility.

Use hands-free operation or one-touch, speed dialing, and auto answer modes.

Pull off the road and park before making or answering a call.

When Using Your Device Near Other Electronic Devices

Your wireless handheld portable device is a low power radio transmitter and receiver. When it is ON, it
receives and also sends out radio frequency (RF) signals.

Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from RF energy. However, certain electronic equipment may
not be shielded against the RF signals from your wireless device; therefore, use of your device must be
restricted in certain situations.

In addition, the computer portion of your device produces low levels of RF energy due to the generation of
digital timing pulses by its clock oscillator circuits. Your device has been equipped with internal shielding to
minimize stray emissions of RF energy. However, use of the computer functions of your device must be
restricted in certain situations.

Hearing Aids

Some digital wireless phones may interfere with some hearing aids. In the event of such interference, you
may want to consult your service provider, or call the customer service line to discuss alternatives.

WARNING: Failure to follow these instructions could lead to serious personal injury and possible property damage.
