energy in the body. Tests for SAR are conducted
with the phone transmitting at its highest power
level in all tested frequency bands. Since 1996,
the FCC has required that the SAR of handheld
wireless phones not exceed 1.6 watts per kilogram,
averaged over one gram of tissue.
Although the SAR is determined at the highest
power level, the actual SAR value of a wireless
phone while operating can be less than the
reported SAR value. This is because the SAR value
may vary from call to call, depending on factors
such as proximity to a cell site, the proximity of
the phone to the body while in use, and the use
of hands-free devices. Before a phone model is
available for sale to the public, it must be tested
and certified to the FCC 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
for each model.
The highest SAR value for this model phone when
tested for use at the ear is 1.30 W/kg and when
worn on the body, as described in this user guide,
is 0.72 W/kg (body-worn measurements differ
among phone models, depending upon available
accessories and FCC requirements).
