10. Important safety information

Traffic safety

Do not use a handset while driving a vehicle. Always secure the
phone in its holder; do not place the phone on the passenger
seat or where it can break loose in a collision or a sudden stop.

Remember: road safety always comes first!

Operating environment

Remember to follow any special regulations in force in any area
and always switch off your phone whenever it is forbidden to
use it, or when it may cause interference or danger.

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 car phone.

Pacemakers

Pacemaker manufacturers recommend that a minimum
separation distance of 20 cm be maintained between the
vehicle antenna and a pacemaker to avoid potential
interference with the pacemaker. These recommendations are
consistent with the independent research by and
recommendations of Wireless Technology Research.

If you have any reason to suspect that interference is taking
place, switch your car phone over to off mode immediately.

Potentially explosive atmospheres

Switch your car phone over to off mode, see “Off mode” on
page 17, when in any area with a potentially explosive
atmosphere and obey all signs and instructions. Sparks in such
areas could cause an explosion or fire resulting in bodily injury
or even death.

Users are advised not to use the car phone when at a refuelling
point. Remember to observe the restrictions on the use of radio
equipment in fuel depots (fuel storage and distribution areas),
chemical plants or where blasting operations are in progress.

Areas with a potentially explosive atmosphere are often, but
not always, clearly marked. They include below deck on boats,
chemical transfer or storage facilities, vehicles using liquified
petroleum gas (such as propane or butane), areas where the air
contains chemicals or particles such as grain, dust or metal
powders, and any other area where you would normally be
advised to turn off your vehicle engine.

Vehicles

Only qualified personnel should service the car phone or install
the car phone in a vehicle. Faulty installation or service may be
dangerous and may invalidate any warranty which may apply to
the unit.

Check regularly that all wireless phone equipment in your
vehicle is mounted and operating properly.

Do not store or carry flammable liquids, gases or explosive
materials in the same compartment as the phone, its parts or
accessories.

Emergency calls

63

For vehicles equipped with an air bag, remember that an air bag
inflates with great force. Do not place objects, including both
installed or portable wireless equipment in the area over the air
bag or in the air bag deployment area. If in-vehicle wireless
equipment is improperly installed and the air bag inflates,
serious injury could result.

Failure to observe these instructions may lead to suspension or
denial of telephone services to the offender, or legal action or
both.

Emergency calls

Emergency calls may not be possible on all wireless phone
networks or when certain network services and/or phone
features are in use. Check with local service providers.

Caution!

This car phone, like any wireless phone, operates using
radio signals, wireless and landline networks as well as
user-programmed functions. Because of this,
connections in all conditions cannot be guaranteed.
Therefore, you should never rely solely upon any wireless
phone for essential communications (for example,
medical emergencies).

To make an emergency call

If the car phone or car ignition is not on,
switch it on. Check for adequate signal
strength.
Some networks may require that a valid
SIM card is properly inserted in the car
phone.

permission to do so.
