Radio Frequency (RF) Energy
This model device meets the government’s requirements for exposure to radio
This device is designed and manufactured not to exceed the emission limits for
exposure to radio frequency (RF) energy set by the Federal Communications
Commission of the U.S. Government.
The exposure standard for wireless devices employs a unit of measurement
known as the Speciﬁc Absorption Rate or SAR. The SAR limit set by the FCC is
Tests for SAR are conducted using standard operating positions accepted by the
FCC with the device 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 device while operating can be well below the
maximum value. This is because the device 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.
The highest SAR value for the model phone as reported to the FCC when tested
for use at the ear is 0.622 W/kg and when worn on the body, as described in this
user guide, is 0.667 W/kg. (Body-worn measurements differ among phone models,
depending upon available accessories and FCC requirements.)
While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various devices and at
various positions, they all meet the government requirement.
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this model device with
all reported SAR levels evaluated as in compliance with the FCC RF exposure
guidelines. SAR information on this model device is on ﬁle with the FCC and can
be found under the Display Grant section of http://www.fcc.gov/oet/fccid after

• FCC ID: Q78-Z222.
• For body worn operation, this phone has been tested and meets the FCC
RF exposure guidelines for use with an accessory that contains no metal
and positions the handset a minimum of 1.5 cm from the body. Use of other
enhancements may not ensure compliance with FCC RF exposure guideline.
* In the United States and Canada, the SAR limit for mobile phones used by the public is 1.6 watts/kg (W/kg) averaged over
one gram of tissue. The standard incorporates a substantial margin of safety to give additional protection for the public and
to account for any variations in measurements.
