Using Your Mobile Device 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 mobile device.
Consult the manufacturer to discuss alternatives.
Implantable Medical Devices
A minimum separation of six (6) inches should be maintained
between a handheld wireless mobile device and an implantable
medical device, such as a pacemaker or implantable cardioverter
defibrillator, to avoid potential interference with the device.
Persons who have such devices:
Should ALWAYS keep the mobile device more than six (6) inches from their
implantable medical device when the mobile device is turned ON;
Should not carry the mobile device in a breast pocket;
Should use the ear opposite the implantable medical device to minimize
the potential for interference;
Should turn the mobile device OFF immediately if there is any reason to
suspect that interference is taking place;
Should read and follow the directions from the manufacturer of your
implantable medical device. If you have any questions about using your
wireless mobile device with an implantable medical device, consult your
health care provider.
