Information on health
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) published statements and questions and answers concerning mobile telephones and health. Microsoft Mobile encourages you to visit these websites for updated information. You can access the FDA website at www.fda.gov and the FCC website at transition.fcc.gov. Additional health-related information is available from the World Health Organization (WHO) at www.who.int and and The National Cancer Institute ("NCI") www.cancer.gov. In the event that you are concerned about possible health effects, the FDA suggests that you limit your own or your children’s radio frequency (RF) exposure by limiting the length of calls or by using handsfree devices.
Safety and texting while driving
Safety should be every driver’s first priority. Drivers must obey all local laws that may include restrictions on the use of mobile telephones or accessories while driving. If use is legal, always keep your hands free to operate the vehicle while driving and use a handsfree device whenever possible. Suspend calls in heavy traffic or hazardous weather. Get to know your mobile phone and its features and make any necessary information inputs prior to driving. Do not input data or engage in text messaging while driving. Mobile telephones should not be used when use may be a distraction to the driver.
