Even though many citizens are using the mobile phone as necessity, but many people do not know the safety and healthy way of using the mobile. Here are few safe and healthy, useful tips to use your mobile phone for optimum benefits
CARE AND MAINTENANCE AWARENESS TIPS:*Keep the phone and all its parts and accessories out of reach of small children. *Keep the phone dry. Precipitation, humidity and all types of liquids or moisture can contain minerals that will corrode electronic circuits. *Do not use or store the phone in dusty, dirty areas. Its moving parts can be damaged. *Do not store the phone in hot areas. High temperatures can shorten the life of electronic devices, damage batteries and wrap or melt certain plastics. *Do not store the phone in cold areas. When it warms up (to its normal temperature), moisture can form inside, which may damage electronic circuit boards. *Do not attempt to open the phone. Non-expert handling may damage it. *Do not drop, knock or shake the phone. Rough handling can break internal circuit boards. *Do not use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents or strong detergents to clean the phone. *Do not paint the phone. Paint can clog the moving parts and prevent proper operation. *Use only the supplied or an approved replacement antenna. Unauthorized antennas, modifications or attachments could damage the phone and may violate regulations governing radio devices. *Do not hold the external antenna when the phone is IN USE. Holding the external antenna affects call quality and may cause the phone to operate at a higher power level than needed. *If you phone, battery, charger or any accessory does not work properly, take it to your nearest qualified service facility. *Use chargers indoors. *Always create a backup of the data you want to keep before giving your phone to the service center.
TRAFFIC SAFETY AWARENESS TIPS: *Do not use a hand-held telephone 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 sudden stop.
OPERATING ENVIRONMENT AWARENESS TIPS: *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. *Use the phone only in its normal operating positions. *Persons with a hearing aid should not hold the phone to the ear with the hearing aid.
PACEMAKERS AWARENESS TIPS: *You should always keep the phone more than 20 cm (6 inches) from their pacemaker when the phone is switched on. *You should not carry the phone in a breast pocket. *You should use the ear opposite to the pacemaker to minimize the potential for interference. *If you have any reason to suspect that interference is taking place, switch off your phone immediately.
HEARING AIDS AWARENESS TIPS: *Some digital wireless phones may interfere with some hearing aids. In the event of such interference, you may want to consult your service provider.
OTHER MEDICAL AWARENESS TIPS: *Cellular phones may interfere with the functionality of inadequately protected medical devices. *Switch off your phone in health care facilities when any regulations posted in these areas.
VEHICLES AWARENESS TIPS: *RF signals may affect improperly installed or inadequately shielded electronic systems in motor vehicles (e.g. electronic fuel injection systems, electronic anti-skid (anti-lock) braking systems, electronic speed control, systems, air bag system). Check with the manufacturer or its representative regarding your vehicle. *You should also consult the manufacturer of any equipment that has been added to your vehicle. *Only qualified personnel should service the phone, or install the 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. *For vehicles equipped with an air bag, remember that an air bag inflates with great force. Do not place mobile phones, 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. *Using your phone while in the air is prohibited. Switch off your phone before boarding an aircraft. The use of wireless telephones in an aircraft may be dangerous to the operation of the aircraft, disrupt the wireless telephone network and may be illegal.
CERTIFICATION INFORMATION: *Positioned at least 1.5 cm away from the body. *When a carry case, belt clip or holder is used for body-worn operation, it should not contain metal and should position the product at least 1.5 cm away from your body.
POTENTIALLY EXPLOSIVE ATMOSPHERES AWARENESS TIPS: *Switch off your phone 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. *Do not remove, install or charge batteries in such areas. *Users are advised to switch off the phone when at a refueling point (service station). *Users are reminded of the need to observe restrictions on the use of radio equipment in fuel depots (fuels storage and distribution areas), chemical plants or where blasting operations are in progress. Turn OFF your phone when you are near electrical blasting caps. *Below deck on boats; chemical transfer or storage facilities; vehicles using liquefied petroleum gas (such as propane or butane); where air contains chemicals or particles, such as grain, dust or metal powders.
AWARENESS TIPS: *Cell phones emit radiation and can cause cancer, so limit their use. *If your phone or battery has been submerged in water, punctured or subjected to a severe fall, do not use it until you take it to a Authorized service center to determine if it has been damaged. Do not attempt to dry it with an external heat source. *Batteries can cause damage and/or bodily injury such as burns if a conductive material such as jewels, keys or beaded chains touch exposed terminals. The conductive material may complete an electric circuit (short circuit) and become hot. Take care when handing a charged battery, particularly when placing it inside a pocket, purse or other container with metal objects. *Do not dispose your battery in a fire. *Your phone or its accessories may include detachable parts, which may present a chocking hazard to small children. Keep your phone and its accessories away from small children. *A higher energy level from the device may mean a rise in tissue temperatures. *Every buyer should first look at SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) number which will (or should) be marked in the literature that comes in the box with the mobile phone. Buyers should check the Specific Absorption Rate. * The lower the SAR number, the safer it is. (Different brands and models will have different SAR ratings). *The closer the phone is to the head, the higher the absorption of the energy from the device. So do not hold it to the ear for long periods. *Make conversations short and prefer hands-free talking to hand-held devices. *"Though the energy given out is low and as such safe and cannot cause cancers immediately, the absorption could build up over a number of years, so adolescents and children should definitely not be encouraged to use cell phones frequently. *Over a stretch of 15-20 years, the probability of developing malignancies goes up, so why take chances? The younger one is, the more vulnerable the user. *Use landlines as far as possible and turn to mobiles only when a landline is not reachable. *The instrument has to work at higher energy levels if used indoors, in order to send signals that can cross concrete walls etc, so it is better (and safer) to use mobiles outdoors. Go out of room if you do get a call. *Never use a cell phone while driving. It does not just divert attention from the road and lessen the person's concentration; it is also dangerous because it has been proved that concentration levels are affected even after a call is completed. *Pull off the road before making or answering a call if driving conditions so require. *Risks of collisions have been noted to be higher, even soon after a call, not just while talking. *Use SMS option rather than talking. Reduce talk time, for greater safety. Mobile phones are a convenience and should not be used as a pastime. *Change to a hand set with a lower SAR if your current hand set has a high rating. *Never use mobile phones near people with hearing aids (their devices will develop disturbance) or pacemakers (more serious). *Some parts of your mobile device may be made of glass. This glass could break if the product is dropped on a hard surface or receives a substantial impact. If glass breaks, do not touch or attempt to remove. Stop using your mobile device until the glass is replaced by a qualified service center. *Do not play or use a flashing-lights feature if you are tired or need sleep. Play in a room in which all lights are on. Take a minimum of a 15 minutes break hourly. Play at the farthest distance possible from the screen. *When connecting to any other device, read its user guide for detailed safety instructions. Do not connect incompatible products. *When you disconnect the power cord of any accessory or enhancement, grasp and pull the plug, not the cord. *Check regularly that enhancements installed in a vehicle are mounted and are operating properly. *Installation of any complex car enhancements must be made by qualified personnel only.
BATTERY AWARENESS TIPS: *Never use any charger or battery that is damaged. *Do not short-circuit the battery. Short-circuiting the terminals may damage the battery or the connecting object. *Leaving the battery in hot or cold places, such as in a closed car in summer or winter conditions, will reduce the capacity and lifetime of the battery. Always try to keep the battery between 15 and 25 degree Celsious. A device with a hot or cold battery may not work temporarily, even when the battery is full charged. Battery performance is particularly limited in temperatures well below freezing. *Do not dispose battery in a fire as they may explode. Please recycle when possible. Do not dispose as household waste.
