Health and Safety
WARNING! To avoid electric shock and damage to your device, do not charge the device while it is wet or in an area where it could get wet. Do not handle the device, charger or cords with wet hands while charging.
Maintaining dust and water resistance
The device is not impervious to dust and water damage in any situation. It is important that all compartments are closed tightly.
Follow these tips carefully to prevent damage to the device and maintain dust and water resistance performance:
- Water-resistance based on IP68 rating, which tests submersion in fresh water deeper than 1.5 meters or keeps it submerged for more than 30 minutes. If the device is exposed to fresh water, dry it thoroughly with a clean, soft cloth; if exposed to liquid other than freshwater, rinse with fresh water and dry as directed.
- Any device which uses accessible compartments or ports that can be opened should have these sealed or closed tightly to prevent liquid from entering the system.
- If the device has been immersed in water or the microphone or speaker is wet, the sound may not be heard clearly during a call. After wiping the device with a dry cloth, dry it thoroughly before using it.
- Do not expose the device to water at high pressure.
- If the device is dropped or receives an impact, the water and dust resistant features of the device may be damaged.
Note: Liquid other than freshwater may enter the device faster. Failure to rinse the device in fresh water and dry it as instructed may cause the device to suffer from operability or cosmetic issues.

FCC Part 15 Information and Notices.
Note: Any device that uses Bluetooth or Wi-Fi is subject to FCC Part 15. Any device with a power supply is subject to Part 15 which also covers both intentional radiators (Bluetooth and Wi-Fi) and unintentional radiators (such as emissions from power supplies and circuit boards).
Pursuant to part 15.21 of the FCC Rules, you are cautioned that changes or modifications not expressly approved by Samsung could void your authority to operate the device. This device complies with part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.
Note: This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications.
However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:
- Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
- Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
- Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.
- Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
The device may cause TV or radio interference if used in close proximity to receiving equipment. The FCC can require you to stop using the mobile device if such interference cannot be eliminated.
GPS & AGPS
Certain Samsung Mobile Devices can use a Global Positioning System (GPS) signal for location-based applications. Changes may affect the performance of location-based technology on your mobile device. Certain Samsung Mobile Devices can also use an Assisted Global Positioning System (AGPS), which obtains information from the cellular network to improve GPS performance. Contact your wireless service provider for details.
Use of AGPS in emergency calls
When you make an emergency call, the cellular network may activate AGPS technology in your mobile device to tell the emergency responders your approximate location. AGPS has limitations and might not work in your area.
Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA)
The Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) is part of the US emergency system. Since 2012, the WEA system has been used to warn the public about weather condition, missing children, and other critical situations all through alerts on compatible cell phones and other mobile devices. For more information visit: https://www.fcc.gov/document/fcc-renames-cameras-wireless-emergency-alerts-wea
Emergency calls may not be possible on all wireless mobile device networks or when certain network services and/or mobile device features are in use. Check with local service providers. If certain features are in use (e.g. call blocking) you may first need to deactivate those features before you can make an emergency call.
