In order to comply with FCC and IC RF exposure safety
guidelines, users MUST use one of the following types
of body-worn accessories:
1. A Palm
brand body-worn accessory that has
been tested for (specific absorption rate) SAR
compliance and is intended for use with this
2. An accessory that contains NO metal (snaps, clips,
etc.) and provides AT LEAST 1.5 cm (0.6 in.) of
separation between the user’s body and the unit.
Do NOT use the device in a manner such that it is in
direct contact with the body (i.e., on the lap or in a
breast pocket). Such use will likely exceed the FCC RF
safety exposure limits. See
fcc.gov/oet/rfsafety for more
information on RF exposure safety.

Body worn operation: Important safety information
regarding radio frequency (RF) radiation exposure: To
ensure compliance with RF exposure guidelines the
phone must be used with a minimum of 1.5 cm (0.6 in.)
separation from the body. Failure to observe these
instructions could result in your RF exposure exceeding
the relevant guideline limits.
Limiting exposure to radio frequency (RF) fields: For
individuals concerned about limiting their exposure to
RF fields, the World Health Organization (WHO)
provides the following advice:
Precautionary measures: Present scientific information
does not indicate the need for any special precautions
for the 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.
