Certification information (SAR)
This cellular device meets guidelines for exposure to radio waves.

Your cellular device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed not to exceed the limits for exposure to radio waves

recommended by international guidelines. These guidelines were developed by the independent scientific organization

ICNIRP and include safety margins designed to assure the protection of all persons, regardless of age and health.

The exposure guidelines for cellular devices employ a unit of measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate or SAR.

The SAR limit stated in the ICNIRP guidelines is 2.0 watts/kilogram (W/kg) averaged over 10 grams of tissue. Tests for SAR

are conducted using standard operating positions with the device transmitting at its highest certified power level in all tested

frequency bands. The actual SAR level of an operating device can be below the maximum value because the device is designed

to use only the power required to reach the network. That amount changes depending on a number of factors such as how

close you are to a network base station.

The highest SAR value under the ICNIRP guidelines for use of the device at the ear is 0.98 W/kg .

Use of device accessories may result in different SAR values. SAR values may vary depending on national reporting and

testing requirements and the network band. Additional SAR information may be provided under product information at

Your cellular phone is also designed to meet the requirements for exposure to radio waves established by the Federal

Communications Commission (USA) and Industry Canada. These requirements set a SAR limit of 1.6 W/kg averaged over

one gram of tissue. The highest SAR value reported under this standard during product certification for use at the ear is

1.33 W/kg and when properly worn on the body is 1.02 W/kg .
