Important Safety/Compliance Information for North American Users

EXPOSURE TO RADIO FREQUENCY SIGNALS

Your wireless handheld portable device is a low power radio transmitter and receiver. When it is ON, it receives and also sends out radio frequency (RF) signals. Your wireless handheld complies with U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and Industry Canada (IC) guidelines respecting safety levels of RF exposure for handheld wireless devices, which in turn are consistent with the following safety standards previously set by Canadian, U.S., and international standards bodies:

ANSI/IEEE C95.1-1999, IEEE Standard for Safety Levels with Respect to Human Exposure to Radio Frequency Electromagnetic Fields, 3kHz to 300 GHz

National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements (NCRP) Report 86, -1986, Biological Effects and Exposure Criteria for Radio Frequency Electromagnetic Fields

Health Canada, Safety Code 6, 1999, Limits of Human Exposure to Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Fields in the Frequency Range from 3 kHz to 300 GHz

International Commission on Non-Ionising Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) 1998, Guidelines for limiting exposure to time-varying electric, magnetic, and electromagnetic fields (up to 300 GHz)

To maintain compliance with FCC and IC RF exposure guidelines, use only RIM-supplied or approved accessories. The BlackBerry Wireless Handheld is designed to be carried in a RIM-approved holster when carried on your body. When carrying the handheld while it is switched on, use the specific RIMapproved holster that has been tested for compliance. Use of accessories that are not approved by RIM may violate FCC and IC RF exposure guidelines and may void your warranty.

SPECIFIC ABSORPTION RATE DATA

THIS MODEL WIRELESS HANDHELD MEETS GOVERNMENT REQUIREMENTS FOR EXPOSURE TO RADIO WAVES.

Your wireless handheld is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed and manufactured not to exceed the emission limits for exposure to radio frequency (RF) energy set by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) of the U.S. Government and Industry Canada of the Canadian Government (IC). These limits are part of comprehensive guidelines and establish permitted levels of RF energy for the general population. The guidelines are based on standards that were developed by independent scientific organizations through periodic and thorough evaluation of scientific studies. The standards include a substantial safety margin designed to assure the safety of all persons, regardless of age and health.

The exposure standard for wireless mobile handhelds employs a unit of measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit set by the FCC/IC is 1.6W/kg.* Tests for SAR are conducted using standard operating positions specified by the FCC/IC with the handheld transmitting at its highest certified power level in all tested frequency bands. Although the SAR is determined at the highest certified power level, the actual SAR level of the handheld while operating can be well below

6

Safety Information Booklet

the maximum value. This is because the handheld is designed to operate at multiple power levels so as to use only the power required to reach the network. In general, the closer you are to a wireless base station antenna, the lower the power output.

Before a wireless handheld model is available for sale to the public, it must be tested and certified to the FCC/IC that it does not exceed the limit established by the government-adopted requirement for safe exposure. The tests are performed in positions and locations (e.g., at the ear and worn on the body) as required by the FCC/IC for each model. The highest SAR value for each model handheld when tested for use at the ear is outlined in the table below:

 

Handheld

1g SAR (W/kg)

BlackBerry 7210

Wireless Handheld™, BlackBerry 7230 Wireless Handheld™

0.26

 

 

 

BlackBerry 7280

Wireless Handheld™

Body-worn measurements differ among wireless handheld and phone models, depending upon available accessories and FCC/IC requirements. While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various wireless devices and at various positions, they all meet the government requirement for safe exposure.

The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this model handheld with all reported SAR levels evaluated as in compliance with the FCC RF emission guidelines. SAR information on this model handheld is on file with the FCC and can be found under the Display Grant section of http:// www.fcc.gov/oet/fccid after searching on FCC ID L6AR6230GE (BlackBerry 7210, BlackBerry 7230), L6AR6230GN or L6RAO30GN (BlackBerry 7280).

Additional information on Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) can be found on the Cellular Telecommunications & Internet Association (CTIA) web-site at http://www.wow-com.com.
