Safety and use ......................

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-free kit 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-lock brakes 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.

Do not let children use the phone and/or play with the telephone and accessories without supervision.

When replacing the cover please note that your phone may contain substances that could create an allergic reaction.

Always handle your phone with care and keep it in a clean and dust-free place.

Please note that you must respect the laws and regulations in force in your jurisdiction or other jurisdiction(s) where you will use your mobile phone regarding taking photographs and recording sounds with your mobile telephone. Pursuant to such laws and regulations, it may be strictly forbidden to take photographs and/or to record the voices of other people or any of their personal attributes, and duplicate or distribute them, as this may be considered to be an invasion of privacy. It is the user's sole responsibility to ensure that prior authorisation be obtained, if necessary, in order to record private or confidential conversations or take a photograph of another person; the manufacturer, the seller or vendor of your mobile phone (including the operator) disclaim any liability which may result from the improper use of the mobile phone.


Before removing the battery from your phone, please make sure that the phone is switched off.

Observe the following precautions for battery use:

- Do not attempt to open the battery (due to the risk of toxic fumes and burns). - Do not puncture, disassemble or cause a short-circuit in a battery,

-Do not burn or dispose of a used battery in household rubbish or store it at temperatures above 60°C.

Batteries must be disposed of in accordance with locally applicable environmental regulations. Only use the battery for the purpose for which it was designed. Never use damaged batteries or those not recommended by the phone manufacturer.

This symbol on your telephone, the battery and the accessories means that these products must be taken to collection points at the end of

their life:

- Municipal waste disposal centres with specific bins for these items of equipment

- Collection bins at points of sale.

They will then be recycled, preventing substances being disposed of in the environment, so that their components can be reused.

In European Union countries:

These collection points are accessible free of charge.

All products with this sign must be brought to these collection points.

In non European Union jurisdictions:

Items of equipment with this symbol are not to be thrown into ordinary bins if your jurisdiction or your region has suitable recycling and collection facilities; instead they are to be taken to collection points for them to be recycled.




Mains powered chargers will operate within the temperature range of: 0°C to 40°C. The chargers designed for your mobile phone meet with the standard for safety of information technology equipment and office equipment use. Due to different applicable electrical specifications, a charger you purchased in one jurisdiction may not work in another jurisdiction.They should be used for this purpose only.


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 phone is a radio transmitter/receiver.It was designed and manufactured to comply with the radiofrequency (RF) exposure thresholds recommended by international requirements (ICNIRP) (1) and by the Council of the European Union (Recommendation 1999/519/EC) (2).

These limits are part of a set of requirements and establish authorised radiofrequency levels for the public. These limits were established by independent groups of experts on the basis of regular and detailed scientific assessments. They include a significant safety margin intended to ensure the safety of all, regardless of age or state of health.

The exposure standard for mobile phones is determined by a measurement unit known as the Specific Absorption Rate or “SAR”.The SAR limit is set by international requirements or by the Council of the European Union at 2 watts/kilogram (W/kg) averaged over 10 grams of body tissue.The tests used to determine SAR levels were carried out on the basis of standard usage modes with the phones transmitting at their maximum power level over the entire range of frequency bands.

Although the SAR was established at the highest certified level, the actual SAR level for the mobile phone during use is generally much lower than the maximum values. In fact, since mobile phones are designed to operate at many different power levels, they only use the minimum level of power required to provide a connection to the network. In theory,the closer you are to a base station antenna, the lower the power level required by the mobile phone.

(1)The ICNIRP requirements are applicable in the following regions: Central America (except Mexico), South America, North and South Africa, Pacific Asia (except Korea),Australia.

(2)The European recommendation (1999/519/EC) is applicable in the following regions: Europe, Israel.

The highest tested SAR value for this mobile phone for use at the ear and compliance against the standard is 1.13 W/kg (OT-105), 1.0 W/kg (OT-108), 1.02 W/kg (OT-208).While there may be differences between the SAR levels on various phones and at various positions, they all meet the relevant International guidelines and EU requirements for RF (radio-waves) exposure.

The World Health Organisat ion (WHO) considers that present scientific information does not indicate the need for any special precautions for use of mobile phones. If individuals are concerned, they might choose to limit their own or their children’s RF exposure by limiting the length of calls, or using “hands-free” devices to keep mobile phones away from the head and body (fact sheet n° 193).Additional information about electromagnetic fields and public health are available on the following site:

Although no danger relating to the use of telephone was ever proved, the World Health Organisation advises as a precautionary measure to use your telephone with a good level of network reception as indicated on the telephone display (4 to 5 bars). It is also advised to keep the telephone, during communications, away from the belly of pregnant women and from the lower abdomen for teenagers.

Yourtelephone is equipped with a built-in antenna. 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 2cm away from the body.
