Radiofrequency (RF) Energy

Understanding How Your Phone Operates

Your phone is basically a radio transmitter and receiver. When it’s turned on,
it receives and transmits radiofrequency (RF) signals. When you use your
phone, the system handling your call controls the power level. This power
can range from 0.006 watt to 0.2 watt in digital mode.

FCC Notice

This phone may cause TV or radio interference if used in close proximity to
receiving equipment. The FCC can require you to stop using the phone if such
interference cannot be eliminated. This phone complies with part 15 of the
FCC rules. Operation is subject to the condition that this phone does not cause
harmful interference.

Knowing Radio Frequency Safety

The design of your phone complies with updated NCRP standards
described below.
In 1991-92, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and
the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) joined in updating ANSI’s
1982 standard for safety levels with respect to human exposure to RF signals.
More than 120 scientists, engineers and physicians from universities,
government health agencies and industries developed this updated standard
after reviewing the available body of research. In 1993, the Federal
Communications Commission (FCC) adopted this updated standard in a
regulation. In August 1996, the FCC adopted hybrid standard consisting
of the existing ANSI/IEEE standard and the guidelines published by the
National Council of Radiation Protection and Measurements (NCRP).

Body-Worn Operation

To maintain compliance with FCC RF exposure guidelines, if you wear a
handset on your body, use the supplied or approved carrying case, holster
or other body-worn accessory. Use of non-approved accessories may
violate FCC RF exposure guidelines.

Section 4A: Important Safety Information

Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) for Wireless Phones

The SAR is a value that corresponds to the relative amount of RF energy
absorbed in the head of a user of a wireless handset.
The SAR value of a phone is the result of an extensive testing, measuring
and calculation process. It does not represent how much RF the phone
emits. All phone models are tested at their highest value in strict laboratory
settings. But when in operation, the SAR of a phone can be substantially
less than the level reported to the FCC. This is because of a variety of factors
including its proximity to a base station antenna, phone design and other
factors. What is important to remember is that each phone meets strict
federal guidelines. Variations in SARs do not represent a variation in safety.
All phones must meet the federal standard, which incorporates a substantial
margin of safety. As stated above, variations in SAR values between different
model phones do not mean variations in safety. SAR values at or below the
federal standard of 1.6 W/kg are considered safe for use by the public.
The highest reported SAR values of the 6165i are:

AMPS mode (Part 22):
Head: 1.03 W/kg; Body-worn: 0.81 W/kg
PCS mode (Part 24):
Head: 1.06 W/kg; Body-worn: 0.74 W/kg
