Follow the rules and laws that apply wherever you are, and always turn off the unit
whenever its use is prohibited or can cause interference or hazards. Only use the
unit in its normal user position.
This unit complies with guidelines for radiation when it is used either in a normal
position against your ear, or when it is at least 1.5 cm from your body. If the unit
is carried close to your body in a case, belt holder or other holder, these holders
should not contain any metal, and the product should be placed at the distance

or the manufacturer of the equipment to determine if it has adequate protection
against external radio signals, or if you have any questions. If notices have been
put up at health care facilities instructing you to turn off the unit while you are
there, you should comply. Hospitals and other health care facilities sometimes
use equipment that can be sensitive to external radio signals.
Implanted medical devices
To avoid potential interference, manufacturers of implanted medical devices
recommend a minimum separation of 15.3 cm between a wireless device and the
medical device. Persons who have such devices should:
• Always keep the wireless device more than 15.3 cm from the medical device.
• Not carry the wireless device in a breast pocket.
• Hold the wireless device to the ear opposite the medical device.
If you have any reason to suspect that interference is taking place, turn the phone
off immediately. If you have any questions about using your wireless device with
an implanted medical device, consult your health care provider.
Areas with explosion risk
Always turn off the unit when you are in an area where there is a risk of explosion.
Follow all signs and instructions. There is a risk of explosion in places that include
areas where you are normally requested to turn off your car engine. In these areas,

Protect your hearing
This device has been tested to comply with the Sound Pressure Level requirement
laid down in the applicable EN 50332-1 and/or EN 50332-2 standards.
Excessive exposure to loud sounds can cause hearing
damage. Exposure to loud sounds while driving may distract
your attention and cause an accident. Listen to a headset at a
moderate level, and do not hold the device near your ear when the
loudspeaker is in use.
Mobile phones use radio signals, the mobile phone network, the
terrestrial network and user-programmed functions. This means that
connection cannot be guaranteed in all circumstances. Therefore,
never rely only on a mobile phone for very important calls such as

13.CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Your unit is a technically advanced product and should be treated with the
greatest care. Negligence may void the warranty.
• Protect the unit from moisture. Rain/snowfall, moisture and all types of liquid can
contain substances that corrode the electronic circuits. If the unit gets wet, you should
remove the battery and allow the unit to dry completely before you replace it.
• Do not use or keep the unit in dusty, dirty environments. The unit’s moving
parts and electronic components can be damaged.
• Do not keep the unit in warm places. High temperatures can reduce the
lifespan for electronic equipment, damage batteries and distort or melt certain
• Do not keep the unit in cold places. When the unit warms up to normal
temperature, condensation can form on the inside which can damage the
• Do not try to open the unit in any other way than that which is indicated here.
• Do not drop the unit. Do not knock or shake it either. If it is treated roughly the
