Health and Safety Information 87
Remember to follow any special regulations in force in any area
and always switch your phone off whenever it is forbidden to use
it, or when it may cause interference or danger.
When connecting the phone or any accessory to another device,
read its user's guide for detailed safety instructions. Do not
connect incompatible products.
As with other mobile radio transmitting equipment, users are
advised that for the satisfactory operation of the equipment and
for the safety of personnel, it is recommended that the
equipment should only be used in the normal operating position
(held to your ear with the antenna pointing over your shoulder if
you are using an external antenna).
Using Your Phone Near Other Electronic Devices
Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from radio
frequency (RF) signals. However, certain electronic equipment
may not be shielded against the RF signals from your wireless
phone. Consult the manufacturer to discuss alternatives.
Implantable Medical Devices
A minimum separation of six (6) inches should be maintained
between a handheld wireless phone and an implantable medical
device, such as a pacemaker or implantable cardioverter
defibrillator, to avoid potential interference with the device.
