Additional safety information



Small children

Your device and its accessories are not toys. They may contain small parts. Keep them out of the reach of small children.

Medical devices

Operation of radio transmitting equipment, including wireless phones, may interfere with inadequately shielded medical devices' function. Consult a physician or the medical device's manufacturer to determine if it is adequately shielded from external radio energy.

Implanted medical devices

To avoid potential interference, manufacturers of implanted medical devices recommend a minimum separation of 6 inches (15.3 centimeters) between a wireless device and the medical device. Persons who have such devices should:

  • Always keep the wireless device more than 6 inches (15.3 centimeters) from the medical device.
  • Not carry the wireless device in a breast pocket.
  • Hold the wireless device to the ear opposite the medical device.
  • Turn the wireless device off if there is any reason to suspect that interference is taking place.
  • Follow the manufacturer directions for the implanted medical device.

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.

Vehicles

Radio signals may affect improperly installed or inadequately shielded electronic systems in vehicles. For more information, check with the manufacturer of your vehicle or its equipment.

Check regularly that all wireless device equipment in your vehicle is mounted and operating properly. Do not store or carry flammable or explosive materials in the same compartment as the device, its parts, or accessories. Do not place your device or accessories in the air bag deployment area.

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.

The Cellular Telecommunications & Internet Association (CTIA) has published further info and tips on safe use of mobile telephones at www.ctia.org, which we encourage you to review.

Potentially explosive environments

Turn your device off in potentially explosive environments, such as near gas station pumps. Sparks may cause an explosion or fire resulting in injury or death. Note restrictions in areas with fuel; chemical plants; or where blasting operations are in progress. Areas with a potentially explosive environment may not be clearly marked. These usually are areas where you are advised to turn your engine off, below deck on boats, chemical transfer or storage facilities, and where the air contains chemicals or particles. Check with the manufacturers of vehicles using liquefied petroleum gas (such as propane or butane) if this device can be safely used in their vicinity.
