cell phone manual warnings

Is it safe to hold your phone close to your head? To the surprise of many, cell phone manufacturers encourage consumers to keep the phone away from their body. Carry iPhone at least 10mm away from your body to ensure exposure levels remain at or below the as-tested levels. Cases with metal parts may change the RF performance of the device, including its compliance with RF exposure guidelines, in a manner that has not been tested or certified. Use of body-worn accessories, other than RIM approved holsters with an integrated belt clip, might cause your BlackBerry device to exceed radio frequency (RF) exposure standards if the accessories are worn on your body while the BlackBerry device is transmitting. The long term effects of exceeding RF exposure standards might present a risk of serious harm. As with other mobile radio transmitting equipment, users are advised that for satisfactory operation of the equipment and for the safety of personnel, it is recommended that no part of the human body be allowed to come too close to the antenna during operation of the equipment. If you do not use a body-worn accessory supplied or approved by Motorola, keep the mobile device and its antenna at least 2.5 cm (1 inch) from your body when transmitting. If you do not use a body-worn accessory, ensure the antenna at least 0.886 inch (2.2cm) away from your body when transmitting. Use of non-Sprint-approved accessories may violate FCC exposure guidelines. For more suggestions on using your cell phone safely see 10 Cell Phone Safety Tips. I think that people who do this for other people now that the internet is here (well, has been for some time) is amazing and I, for one, cannot thank everyone enough (so I’ll start with one) That was very gracious and kind. I hope we stay connected as we both forge ahead. ?? After our family's health crisis in 2008, I learned to ask questions about what's in our food, our water, and our air.

I hope to empower you as you seek to live safely in a complex world. Thankfully, small steps lead to big changes. Let's travel this road together, one step at a time. Clean without chemicals. Use safer products on your skin. Natural living is fun and rewarding. Come join the fun. Very importantly, if you place a cell phone at body contact, you can exceed radiation limits up to 9 times US FCC limits according to reports of the French government after testing hundreds of cell phones. A: This distance supposedly stops you (the user) from getting radiation at levels that exceed the FCC radiation limits. These devices are radiation tested at the specified distance. They are NOT tested in the way in the ways we normally use them. For example, when you place the cell phone in your pocket or your laptop on your lap you are breaking these important safety instructions. A: You may get radiation at levels higher than government allowable levels. The FCC regulates that laptops and tablets are tested at 20 cm or about 8 inches away from the body. That is why some people get laptop burns when they use their laptop on their lap. These limits do not apply to children. They also do not protect us from the non thermal effects of this radiation. They do not protect us from the effects from long-term exposures. We really need to keep far more distance! A: You can be aware that your device emits microwave radiation. Keep as much of a distance as possible and use cords to connect whenever possible. Your patronage will allow us to develop more educational resources and materials. However the reality is that this is the way most people use wifi devices. We certainly did! We wish we had known about these fine print warning sooner. Please consider talking to your elected officials about wireless radiation so that people can know these instructions. The video to the left is about the new law i ntroduced in Canada that would inform citizens about the fine print warnings. Well worth watching.

All wireless devices have manufacturers warnings stating a specific distance the device should be from your body. This information is literally buried in the fine print of cell phone and wifi device manuals. Read all the fine print warnings at the end of this page. Shel Silverstein ? Q: Why the distance. A: This distance supposedly stops you (the user) from getting radiation at levels that exceed the FCC radiation limits. These devices are radiation tested at that distance!!!! They are NOT tested in the way they are normally used such as when you place the cell phone in your pocket or your laptop on your lap. Q: What happens if you use the device closer than that distance. A: You may get radiation at levels higher than government allowable levels.For example, the FCC sets limits for laptops and tablets that are tested 20 cm or about 8 inches away from the body. That is why some people get laptop burns when they use their laptop on their lap. Q: If I follow these distance will I be safe? A: No. These distances are set for FCC limit that apply to a 220 pound male for 30 minutes. As we describe HERE, the limits are two decades old and do not apply to children. They also do not protect us from the non thermal effects of this radiation. We really need to keep far more distance. Q: So what should I do. A: You can be aware that your device emits microwave radiation. Keep as much of a distance as possible and use cords to connect whenever possible. Learn More. Q: Why don’t I know this. A: The instructions are deep in the manual. Many Right-to-Know efforts have been underway for years that would bring these warnings to the front so that the consumer can see them. Please learn more about these incredible efforts in US Cities and States. Blackberry Bold 9930 “Keep the BlackBerry device at least 0.59 in.

Such accessories should not contain any metallic components.When it is ON, it receives and also sends out radio frequency (RF) signals. In August, 1996, the Federal Communications Commissions (FCC) adopted RF exposure guidelines with safety levels for handheld wireless phones.Contact with the antenna affects call quality and may cause the phone to operate at a higher power level than otherwise needed. Driving Check the laws and regulations on the But if you are concerned about avoiding even potential risks, you can take a few simple steps to minimize your exposure to radiofrequency energy (RF). Since time is a key factor in how much exposure a person receives, reducing the amount of time spent using a wireless phone will reduce RF exposure. If you must conduct extended conversations by wireless phone every day, you could place more distance between your body and the source of the RF, since the exposure level drops off dramatically with distance. For example, you could use a headset and carry the wireless phone away from your body or use a wireless phone connected to a remote antenna. Again, the scientific data do not demonstrate that wireless phones are harmful. But if you are concerned about the RF exposure from these products, you can use measures like those described above to reduce your RF exposure from wireless phone use.” To comply with FCC RF exposure requirements, a minimum separation distance of 1 cm (0.39 inches) must be maintained between the user’s body and the back of the phone.” In order to transmit data files or messages, this device requires a quality connection to the network.

The ordinance was adopted by a unanimous vote of the city council in May, 2015. If you carry or use your phone in a pants or shirt pocket or tucked into a bra when the phone is ON and connected to a wireless network, you may exceed the federal guidelines for exposure to RF radiation. Refer to the instructions in your phone or user manual for information about how to use your phone safely.

” A fter the city adopted a minor change in the safety notice, t he Federal district court ruled against the industry's request for a preliminary injunction. The law has been in effect in the city since March 21, 2016. The panel further held that the ordinance was in the public interest and that an injunction would harm that interest. Moreover, the issue that has been litigated the past four years is the CTIA's request for a preliminary injunction to temporarily block the ordinance until the Federal courts hear the case and issue a final decision. That the CTIA will employ the same legal arguments in litigating the case portends well in the long run for the City of Berkeley. Sep 22, 2018 The speakers included Max Anderson, a former The ordinance was adopted in May, 2015 and has been in effect since March, 2016. The Supreme Court wants the appeals court to review CTIA v. Berkeley in light of a new ruling in another case. Since these centers try to stop women from having abortions, they are opposed to providing their patients with such information. The Supreme Court clarified the limits of their ruling in NIFLA v. Becerra. This limitation should help Berkeley defend its ordinance in subsequent legal proceedings: Yet, t he Federal Communications Commission requires manufacturers to disclose the cell phone's minimum body separation distance and recommend to consumers the use of an approved holder that complies with this separation distance. If you carry or use your phone in a pants or shirt pocket or tucked into a bra when the phone is ON and connected to a wireless network, you may exceed the federal guidelines for exposure to RF radiation. Refer to the instructions in your phone or user manual for information about how to use your phone safely.

School, and Farimah Brown and Savith Iyengar of the Berkeley city attorney’sThe CTIA indicated that it may petition the Supreme Court for a hearing even though the appeals court denied an en banc hearing. The CTIA has until January 9, 2018 to petition the Supreme Court for a hearing. The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals refused to reconsider its April decision to uphold a Berkeley ordinance that requires cell phone retailers to warn customers about possible radiation exposure. The majority opinion stated that upholding the court’s prior decision is consistent with four other circuit courts that have held government's right to compel “purely factual” commercial speech to serve a compelling government interest, even in the absence of consumer deception. The Association of National Advertisers, the American Beverage Association, and the Chamber of Commerce submitted briefs in support of the CTIA.
