Precautionary Guidelines for Mobile Users

Precautionary Guidelines for Mobile Users (From Idea cellular website)
Mobile users are advised to take following precautionary measures while using a mobile handset
1. Keep distance – Hold the cell phone away from body to the extent possible
2. Use a headset (or ear bud) to keep the handset farther from your head
3. Do not press the phone handset against your head. Radiation level is
proportional to the square of the distance from the source --being very close
increases energy absorption much more. The farther your brain is from the
handset the better it is
4. Use a wired headset
5. Limit the length of mobile calls.
6. Use text as compared to voice wherever possible
7. Put the cell phone on speaker mode
8. Use a wireless Bluetooth headset
9. If the radio signal is weak, a mobile phone will increase its transmission power.
Find a strong signal and avoid movement – Use your phone where reception is
10.Metal & water are good conductors of radio waves so avoid using a mobile
phone while wearing metal-framed glasses or having wet hair.
11.Let the call connect before putting the handset on your ear or start speaking
and listening – A mobile phone first makes the communication at higher power
and then reduces power to an adequate level. more power is radiated during
call connecting time
12.If you have a choice, use a landline (wired) phone, not a mobile phone.
13.When your phone is ON, don't carry it in a breast or pants pocket. When a
mobile phone is on, it automatically transmits at high power every one or two
minutes to check (poll) the network.
14.Reduce mobile phone use by children as a younger person will likely have a
longer lifetime exposure to radiation from cell phones
15.People having active medical implants should preferably keep the cell phone at
least 15 cm away from the implant.

While purchasing a Mobile Handset check the SAR value of the mobile phone. It can
be searched on internet if its model number & make is known.
