Federal Communication Commission Interference
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the
limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC
Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection
against harmful interference in a residential installation. This
equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency
energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the
instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio
communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference
will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does
cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which
can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is
encouraged to try to correct the interference by one of the
following measures:
Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from
that to which the receiver is connected.
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio or television
technician for help.
FCC Caution
: Any changes or modifications not expressly
approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the
user’s authority to operate this equipment.
Safety and regulatory guide 9
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is
subject to the following two conditions: (1) This device may not
cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any
interference received, including interference that may cause
undesired operation.
Operation on the 5.15-5.25 GHz frequency band is restricted to
indoor use only. The FCC requires indoor use for the 5.15-5.25 GHz
band to reduce the potential for harmful interference to
co-channel Mobile Satellite Systems. Therefore, it will only transmit
on the 5.25-5.35 GHz, 5.47-5.75 GHz and 5.725-5.825 GHz band
when using outdoors.
FCC Hearing-Aid Compatibility (HAC) Regulations for
Wireless Devices
The FCC has adopted rules to ensure reasonable access to
telecommunications services for persons with hearing disabilities.
As part of this effort, the industry uses a rating system for wireless
phones to help hearing device users find phones that may be
compatible with their hearing devices (hearing aids and cochlear
implants). This hearing-aid compatibility (HAC) rating system is
described in the American National Standards Institute (ANSI)
C63.19 standard and includes the following ratings:
For phones that use acoustic coupling with hearing
devices that are not operating in telecoil mode.
Phones rated M3
or M4 meet FCC HAC requirements and are likely to generate less
radio frequency interference with hearing devices than phones
with lower ratings. M4 is the better/higher of the two ratings. Your
is rated
For phones that use inductive coupling with hearing
devices operating in telecoil mode.
Phones rated T3 or T4 meet
FCC HAC requirements and are likely to be more usable with a
hearing aid’s telecoil than phones that are not rated. T4 is the
better/higher of the two ratings. Your
is rated
This phone has been tested and rated for use with hearing aids for
some of the wireless technologies that it uses. However, there may
be some newer wireless technologies used in this phone that have
not been tested yet for use with hearing aids. It is important to try
the different features of this phone thoroughly and in different
locations, using your hearing aid or cochlear implant, to determine
if you hear any interfering noise. Consult your service provider or
the manufacturer of this phone for information on hearing aid
compatibility. If you have questions about return or exchange
10 Safety and regulatory guide
policies, consult your service provider or phone retailer.
The ratings are not guarantees. Trying out the phone with your
hearing device is the best way to evaluate it for your personal
needs. Results will vary depending on a user’s hearing device and
hearing loss. For example, if some wireless phones are used near
some hearing devices, 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. If your hearing device happens to be
vulnerable to interference, you may not be able to use a rated
phone successfully.
Please power off the Bluetooth function while using hearing aid
devices with your

Body-worn Operation
This device was tested for typical body-worn operations per the
FCC's radio frequency (RF) safety requirements. To comply with
these RF exposure requirements, use a belt-clip, holster, or similar
accessory with this device to maintain a minimum separation
distance of 1.0 cm between the user’s body and the handset, with
the device oriented with either the front or back of the device
facing towards the user’s body. Such accessories should not
contain any metallic components. Body-worn accessories that do
not meet these requirements may not ensure compliance with
FCC RF exposure guidelines and their use should be avoided.
Use only the supplied or an approved antenna. Unauthorized
antennas, modifications, or attachments could impair call quality,
damage the phone, or result in violation of regulations. Do not use
the phone with a damaged antenna. If a damaged antenna comes
