It’s encouraged the use of the remaining TIA language when relevant. Exposure to Radio Frequency Signal Your wireless handheld portable telephone is a lowpower radio transmitter and receiver. When it is ON, it receives and also sends out radio frequency (RF) signals. In August, 1996, the Federal Communications Commissions (FCC) adopted RF exposure guidelines with safety levels for handheld wireless phones. Those guidelines are consistent with the safety standards previously set by both U.S. and international standards bodies: ANSI C95.1 (1992) * NCRP Report 86 (1986) ICNIRP (1996) Those standards were based on comprehensive and periodic evaluations of the relevant scientific literature. For example, over 120 scientists, engineers, and physicians from universities, government health agencies, and industry reviewed the available body of research to develop the ANSI Standard (C95.1). * American National Standards Institute; National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements; International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection. The design of your phone complies with the FCC guidelines (and those standards). Suggestions for a more efficient operation For your phone to operate most efficiently: • Do not touch the antenna unnecessarily, when the phone is in use. The contact with the antenna affects call quality, and may cause the phone to operate at a higher power level than otherwise would be need. Driving Check the laws and regulations related to the use of wireless phones in the areas where you drive. Always obey these regulations. Also, if using your phone while driving, make sure to: • Pay full attention to driving; driving safely is your first responsibility; • Use hands-free operation, if available; Safety instructions 10 • Pull off the road and park, before making or answering a call, if driving conditions demand so. Electronic Devices Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from RF signals. However, certain electronic equipment may not be shielded against the RF signals from your wireless phone. Pacemaker The Medical Industry Manufacturers Association recommends a minimum distance of fifteen (15) centimeters, or six (6) inches, between a handheld wireless phone and a pacemaker, in order to avoid potential interference between them. These advices are consistent with independent researches, and with recommendations based on wireless technology research. People with pacemakers should: • Always keep the product more than six (6) inches from their pacemaker when the product is turned ON. • Not carry the phone in a shirt pocket. • Use the ear opposite to the pacemaker, to minimize the potential interference. • If you have any reason to suspect that interference is taking place, switch off your phone immediately. Hearing Aids Some digital wireless phones may interfere with some hearing aids. In the event of such interference, we recommend that you contact your service provider. Other Medical Devices If you use any other personal medical devices, consult your device manufacturer to determine if they are adequately shielded from external RF energy. Your doctor can help you obtain this information. Health Care Facilities Turn off your phone in health care facilities, whenever there are signs asking you to do so. Hospitals or health care facilities may use equipment that could be sensitive to external RF energy. Safety instructions 11 Vehicles RF signals may affect improperly installed or inadequately shielded devices in motor vehicles. Check with the manufacturer, or its representative, regarding your vehicle. You should also consult the manufacturer about any equipment that has been added to your vehicle. Facilities with signs Turn off the phone in any facility where warning signs request you to do so. Airplanes FCC regulations prohibit the use of phones while in the air. Turn off your phone before boarding an airplane. Blasting Areas To avoid interfering with blasting operations, turn your phone off when in a ‘blasting area’ or in areas with signs that read: ‘Turn off two-way radios’ . Obey all signs and instructions. Potentially Explosive Atmosphere Turn off the phone when in an area with a potentially explosive atmosphere, and obey all signs and instructions. Sparks in such areas could cause an explosion or fire that could result in personal injury or death. Areas with a potentially explosive atmosphere are often clearly marked, but not always. Among the potentially dangerous areas are: Fueling areas (such as gas stations), areas below deck on boats, facilities where chemical products are transferred or stored, vehicles using liquefied petroleum gas (as propane or butane), areas where the air contains chemicals or particles (such as grain, dust or metal powders), and any other areas where you would normally be advised to turn off your vehicle engine. For vehicles equipped with air bags Air bags inflate with strong force. Do not place objects in the area over the air bag or in its deployment area, including wireless equipment, either installed or portable. Serious injuries could occur if wireless equipment is improperly installed into the car when the air bag inflates.

Appendix 156 Anti-Theft Guide Set up your device to prevent other people from using it if it's been reset to factory settings without your permission. For example, if your device is lost, stolen, or wiped, only someone with your Google account or screen lock information can use the device. All you need to make sure your device is protected is: • Set a screen lock: If your device is lost or stolen but you have a screen lock set, the device can't be erased using the Settings menu unless your screen is unlocked. • Add your Google account on your device: If your device is wiped but you have your Google account on it, the device can't finish the setup process until your Google account information is entered again. After your device is protected, you'll need to either unlock your screen or enter your Google account password if you need to do a factory reset.
