Safety and product information

Safety information

Please read these safety and operating instructions before using the BlackBerry® device or any accessories provided with the device. Keep these instructions for future use.

In some countries there may be restrictions on using Bluetooth® enabled and wireless devices with encryption software. Check with your local authorities.

Electrical safety

Charge the BlackBerry® device using only the USB cable HDW-06610-001, travel charger ASY-12709-001, ASY-07040-001 or ASY-07559-001, automotive charger ASY-04195-001 or ASY-09824-001, BlackBerry® Power Station ASY-12733-005 or ASY-12733-006, or other charging accessory provided or specifically approved by Research In Motion for use with this BlackBerry device. Any approval from RIM under this document must be in writing and must be from a person authorised to provide such approval. Use of any other accessory might invalidate any warranty provided with the BlackBerry device and might be dangerous.

Use the charging accessories provided with the BlackBerry device or any other RIM approved charging accessories only from the type of power source indicated on the marking label. Before using any power supply, verify that the mains voltage is in accordance with the voltage printed on the power supply.

Do not overload power outlets, extension cords, or convenience receptacles as this might result in a risk of fire or electric shock. To reduce the risk of damage to the cord or the plug, pull the plug rather than the cord when you disconnect the charging accessory from the power outlet or convenience receptacle.

Protect the power cord from being walked on or pinched particularly at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point where the power cord connects to the BlackBerry device. Unplug charging accessories during lightning storms or when unused for long periods of time.

Do not use charging accessories outside or in any area exposed to the elements.

For more information about inserting the lithium-ion battery and connecting the power supply, see the documentation that came with the BlackBerry device.

Battery safety and disposal

The BlackBerry® device contains a removable lithium-ion battery. Do not dispose of either the BlackBerry device or the lithium-ion battery in a fire. Dispose of the lithium-ion battery in accordance with the laws and regulations in your area governing disposal of such cell types.

The lithium-ion battery might present a fire or chemical burn hazard if mistreated. Do not disassemble, crush, or puncture the lithium-ion battery. Do not heat the lithium-ion battery above 140°F (60°C). Do not allow metal objects to contact the battery terminals.

Use only the lithium-ion battery that Research In Motion specifies for use with your particular BlackBerry device model. RIM specifies lithium-ion batteries for use in BlackBerry devices in compliance with IEEE® Std 1725™-200x. Using any other lithium-ion battery might invalidate any warranty provided with the BlackBerry device and might present a risk of fire or explosion.

Battery usage by children should be supervised.

When this icon appears on your BlackBerry device, the lithium-ion battery is not inserted or an invalid lithium-ion battery is inserted. If you have inserted an invalid lithium-ion battery, remove it immediately and insert the lithium-ion battery that RIM specifies for use with your particular BlackBerry device model. If you have inserted the lithiumion battery that is specified for use with your particular BlackBerry device model, remove and reinsert the lithium-ion battery. Verify that the battery connectors align with the connectors on your BlackBerry device.

Device disposal

The BlackBerry® device should not be placed in household rubbish bins. Please check local regulations for information about the disposal of electronic products in your area.

Driving safety

Check the laws and regulations regarding the use of wireless devices in the areas where you drive. Always obey them. Also, if using the BlackBerry® device in your car, please use the following minimum guidelines:

Give your full attention to driving; driving safely is your first responsibility.

Use hands-free operation if it is available.

• Pull off the road and park before using your BlackBerry device in any way.

Research In Motion (RIM) recommends that you do not use the BlackBerry device while driving. Instead, consider asking a passenger in the vehicle to use the BlackBerry device for you or find a safe location to stop your vehicle prior to using the device.

Store the BlackBerry device safely before driving your vehicle. Do not use any charging accessory as a means of storing the BlackBerry device while you are in a vehicle. If your vehicle is equipped with an air bag, do not place the BlackBerry device or other objects above the air bag, or in the air bag deployment area. If in-vehicle wireless equipment is improperly stored or installed and the air bag inflates, serious injury could result.

Radio frequency (RF) signals might affect improperly installed or inadequately shielded electronic systems in motor vehicles. Check with the manufacturer or its representative regarding your vehicle. If any equipment has been added to your vehicle, you should also consult the manufacturer of that equipment for information on RF signals.

Accessories

Use only those accessories approved by Research In Motion (RIM). Using any accessories not approved by RIM for use with this particular BlackBerry® device model might invalidate any approval or warranty applicable to the device, might result in the non-operation of the device and might be dangerous.

6

Antenna care

Use only the supplied integrated antenna. Unauthorized antenna modifications or attachments could damage the BlackBerry® device and might violate U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulations.

Operating and storage temperatures

Situate the BlackBerry® device or device accessories away from heat sources, such as radiators, heat registers, stoves or other apparatus (including amplifiers) that produce heat.

If you are not going to use the BlackBerry device for more than two weeks, turn off the device power, remove the battery and follow the operating and storage temperatures listed in the following table:

Device operating

32 to 104°F (0 to 40°C)

Device storage

50 to 86°F (10 to 30°C)

Travel charger operating

32 to 104°F (0 to 40°C)

Travel charger storage

-22 to 167°F (-30 to 75°C)

Interference with electronic equipment

Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from radio frequency (RF) signals. However, certain electronic equipment might not be shielded against the RF signals from the BlackBerry® device.

Pacemakers: Consult a physician or the manufacturer of your pacemaker if you have any questions regarding the effect of RF signals on your pacemaker. If you have a pacemaker, verify that you are using the BlackBerry device in accordance with the safety requirements associated with your particular pacemaker, which might include the following requirements:

Always keep the BlackBerry device more than 7.88 inches (20 cm) from the pacemaker when the BlackBerry device is turned on.

Do not carry the BlackBerry device in your breast pocket.

When using the phone on the BlackBerry device, use the ear opposite the pacemaker for making and receiving calls to minimise the potential interference.

If you have any reason to suspect that interference is taking place, turn off all wireless connections on the BlackBerry device immediately.

Hearing aids: Some digital wireless devices may interfere with some hearing aids. In the event of such interference, consult your wireless service provider or contact the manufacturer of your hearing aid to discuss alternatives.

Other medical devices: If you use any other personal medical device, consult the manufacturer of your device to determine if the device is adequately shielded from external RF energy. Your physician may be able to assist you in obtaining this information.
