WARNING! Failure to follow these instructions may lead to serious personal injury and possible property damage.

Driving safely Never use handheld phones while driving. It is an offence, that while driving, to hold a phone or cradle it in your neck at any point, during the setup, making or taking of a phone call, text message or any other data related mobile communication. Use of fully installed car kits are still permitted, as are the use of alternate handsfree accessories. In the interest of safety, we would recommend the use of a cradle while using any form of handsfree accessory. While driving, we recommend that you use voicemail wherever possible, and that you listen to your messages when you are not in the car. If you must make a handsfree call when driving, keep it brief. Do not place objects, including both installed or portable wireless equipment, in the area over the airbag or in the airbag deployment area. An airbag inflates with great force. If the airbag inflates, serious injury could result.

Electronic devices Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from RF energy. However, certain electronic equipment may not be shielded against the RF signals from your device.

e8429-padfonemini.indd 13 11/18/13 8:53:19 AM

Pacemakers The Health Industry Manufacturers Association recommends that a minimum separation of six (6) inches be maintained between a phone and a pacemaker to avoid potential interference with the pacemaker. These recommendations are consistent with the independent research by and recommendations of Wireless Technology Research. If you have a pacemaker: Always keep your PadFone mini 4.3 more than six

inches (15cm) from your pacemaker when turned on. Do not carry your PadFone mini 4.3 in your breast

pocket. Use the ear opposite the pacemaker to minimize the

potential for interference. If you have any reason to suspect that interference

is taking place, switch off your PadFone mini 4.3 immediately.

Hearing aids Some digital phones may interfere with some hearing aids. In the event of such interference, call ASUS Customer Service to discuss alternatives.

Other medical devices If you use any other personal medical device, consult the manufacturer of your device to determine if it is adequately shielded from external RF energy. Your physician may be able to assist you in obtaining this information. Turn your PadFone mini 4.3 off in healthcare facilities when any regulations posted in these areas instruct you to do so. Hospitals or healthcare facilities may be using equipment that could be sensitive to external RF energy.

Vehicles RF signals may affect improperly installed or inadequately shielded electronic systems in motor vehicles. Check with the manufacturer or its representative regarding your vehicle. You should also consult the manufacturer of any equipment added to your vehicle.

e8429-padfonemini.indd 14 11/18/13 8:53:19 AM

Posted facilities Turn your PadFone mini 4.3 off where posted notices so require.

Magnetic media Magnetic fields generated by mobile devices may damage data on magnetic storage media, such as credit cards, computer discs or tapes. Do not place your PadFone mini 4.3 next to such media. You should never expose your PadFone mini 4.3 to strong magnetic fields as this may cause temporary malfunction.

Other Safety Guidelines

Aircraft Regulations prohibit using your mobile device while onboard an aircraft. Switch off your PadFone mini 4.3 before boarding an aircraft or turn off the wireless connection. Blasting areas To avoid interfering with blasting operations, turn your PadFone mini 4.3 off when in a blasting area or in areas posted: Turn off two-way radio. Obey all signs and instructions.

Potentially explosive environments Turn your PadFone mini 4.3 off when in any area with a potentially explosive environment and obey all signs and instructions. Sparks in such areas could cause an explosion or fire resulting in bodily injury or even death. Areas with a potentially explosive environment are often, but not always, clearly marked. They include fuelling areas such as gas stations, below decks on boats, fuel or chemical transfer or storage facilities, vehicles using liquified petroleum gas (such as propane or butane), areas where the air contains chemicals or articles, such as grain, dust, or metal powders, and any other area where you would normally be advised to turn off your vehicles engine.
