We recommend that you read this chapter carefully before using your phone.The manufacturer disclaims any liability for damage, which may result as a consequence of improper use or use contrary to the instructions contained herein.


Given that studies show that using a mobile phone while driving a vehicle constitutes a real risk, even when the hands-freekit is used (car kit, headset...), drivers are requested to refrain from using their mobile when the vehicle is not parked.

When driving, do not use your phone and headphone to listen to music or to the radio. Using a headphone can be dangerous and forbidden in some areas.

When switched on, your phone emits electromagnetic waves that can interfere with the vehicle’s electronic systems such as ABS anti-lockbrakes or airbags. To ensure that there is no problem:

-do not place your phone on top of the dashboard or within an airbag deployment area,

-check with your car dealer or the car manufacturer to make sure that the dashboard is adequately shielded from mobile phone RF energy.


You are advised to switch off the telephone from time to time to optimise its performance.

Switch the phone off before boarding an aircraft.

Switch the phone off when you are in health care facilities, except in designated areas. As with many other types of equipment now in regular use, mobile telephones can interfere with other electrical or electronic devices, or equipment using radio frequency.

Switch the phone off when you are near gas or flammable liquids. Strictly obey all signs and instructions posted in a fuel depot, petrol station, or chemical plant, or in any potentially explosive atmosphere.

When the phone is switched on, it should be kept at least 15 cm from any medical device such as a pacemaker,a hearing aid or insulin pump, etc. In particular when using the phone, you should hold it against the ear on the opposite side to the device, if any.

To avoid hearing impairment, pick up the call before holding your phone to your ear.Also move the handset away from your ear while using the "hands-free"mode because the amplified volume might cause hearing damage.

Proof of compliance with international standards (ICNIRP) or with European Directive 1999/5/EC (R&TTE) is required of all mobile phone models before they can be put on the market.The protection of the health and safety for the user and any other person is an essential requirement of these standards or this directive.


Your mobile device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed not to exceed the limits for exposure to radio waves (radio frequency electromagnetic fields) recommended by international guidelines. The guidelines were developed by an independent scientific organization (ICNIRP) and include a substantial safety margin designed to assure the safety of all persons, regardless of age and health.

The radio wave exposure guidelines use a unit of measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR.The SAR limit for mobile devices is 2.0 W/kg. Tests for SAR are conducted using standard operating positions with the device transmitting at its highest certified power level in all tested frequency bands. The highest SAR values under the ICNIRP guidelines for this device model are:

Maximum SAR for this model and conditions under which it was recorded.

Head SAR

GSM 900

0.9 W/kg


GSM 900

1.1 W/kg


Unable to make outgoing calls

Make sure you have dialled a valid number and press the key

For international calls, check the country and area codes

Make sure your mobile phone is connected to a network, and that the network is not overloaded or unavailable

Check your subscription status with your operator (credit, SIM card valid, etc.)

Make sure you have not barred outgoing calls

Unable to receive incoming calls

Make sure your mobile phone is switched on and connected to a network (check for overloaded or unavailable network)

Check the network strength


I am unable to use the features described in the manual

Check with your operator to make sure that your subscription includes this service

Make sure this feature does not require an Alcatel accessory


During use, the actual SAR values for this device are usually well below the values stated above. This is because, for purposes of system efficiency and to minimize interference on the network, the operating power of your mobile device is automatically decreased when full power is not needed for the call. The lower the power output of the device, the lower its SAR value.

Body-wornSAR testing has been carried out at a separation distance of 1.5 cm. To meet RF exposure guidelines duringbody-wornoperation, the device should be positioned at least this distance away from the body. If you are not using an approved accessory ensure that whatever product is used is free of any metal and that it positions the phone the indicated distance away from the body.

The World Health Organization has stated that present scientific information does not indicate the need for any special precautions for the use of mobile devices. They recommend that if you are interested in further reducing your exposure then you can easily do so by limiting your usage or simply using a hands-freekit to keep the device away from the head and body.

For more information you can go to

Additional information about electromagnetic fields and public health are available on the following site:

Your telephone is equipped with a built-inantenna. For optimal operation, you should avoid touching it or degrading it.

As mobile devices offer a range of functions, they can be used in positions other than against your ear.In such circumstances the device will be compliant with the guidelines when used with headset or USB data cable. If you are using another accessory ensure that whatever product is used is free of any metal and that it positions the phone at least 1.5 cm away from the body.
