Important Safety Precautions

 

Please read these simple guidelines prior to using your phone. Breaking the rules may be dangerous or illegal. Further detailed information appears in the user guide.

 

-          Never use an unapproved battery since this could damage the phone and/or battery and could cause the battery to explode.

-          Never place your phone in a microwave oven as it will cause the battery to explode.

-          Never store your phone in temperatures less than -4 degrees Fahrenheit or greater than 122 degrees Fahrenheit.

-          Do not dispose of your battery near fire or with hazardous or flammable materials.

-          When riding in a car, do not leave your phone or set up the hands-free kit near the air bag. If wireless equipment is improperly installed and the air bag is deployed, you may be seriously injured.

-          Do not use a hand-held phone while driving.

-          Do not use the phone in areas where its use is prohibited. (For example: aircraft)

-          Do not expose the battery charger or adapter to direct sunlight or use it in places with high humidity, such as a bathroom.

-          Do not use harsh chemicals (such as alcohol, benzene, thinners, etc.) or detergents to clean your phone. This could cause a fire.

-          Do not drop, strike, or shake your phone severely. It may harm the internal circuit boards of the phone.

-          Do not use your phone in high explosive areas as the phone may generate sparks.

-          Do not damage the power cord by bending, twisting, pulling, or heating. Do not use the plug if it is loose as it may cause electric shock or fire.

-          Do not place any heavy items on the power cord. Do not allow the power cord to be crimped as it may cause electric shock or fire.

-          Do not handle the phone with wet hands while it is being charged. It may cause an electric shock or seriously damage your phone.

-          Do not disassemble the phone.

-          Do not place or answer calls while charging the phone as it may short-circuit the phone and/or cause electric shock or fire.

-          Do not hold or let the antenna come in contact with your body during a call.

-          Make sure that no sharp-edged items, such as animal's teeth or nails, come into contact with the battery. This could cause a fire.

-          Store the battery out of reach of children.

-          Be careful that children do not swallow any parts (such as earphone, connection parts of the phone, etc.) This could cause asphyxiation or suffocation resulting in serious injury or death.

-          Unplug the power cord and charger during lightning storms to avoid electric shock or fire.

-          Only use the batteries and chargers provided by LG. The warranty will not be applied to products provided by other suppliers.

-          Only authorized personnel should service the phone and its accessories. Faulty installation or service may result in accidents and consequently invalidate the warranty.
