Using RSS reader
RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is a
family of web feed formats used to
publish frequently updated content
such as blog entries, news headlines
or podcasts. An RSS document, which
is called a feed, web feed, or channel,
contains either a summary of content
from an associated web site or the full
text. RSS makes it possible for people
to keep up with their favourite web
sites automatically. It is much easier
than checking them manually.
The user subscribes to a feed by
entering the feed’s link into the
reader or by clicking an RSS icon in a
browser that initiates the subscription
process. The reader checks the user’s
subscribed feeds regularly for new
content, downloading any updates
that it finds.

Please read these simple guidelines.
Not following these guidelines may
be dangerous or illegal.
Exposure to radio frequency
energy
Radio wave exposure and Specific
Absorption Rate (SAR) information.
This mobile phone model GD510
has been designed to comply with
applicable safety requirements for
exposure to radio waves. These
requirements are based on scientific
guidelines that include safety margins
designed to assure the safety of all
persons, regardless of age and health.
• The radio wave exposure guidelines
employ a unit of measurement
known as the Specific Absorption
Rate, or SAR. Tests for SAR are
conducted using standardised
methods with the phone
transmitting at its highest certified
power level in all used frequency
bands.
• While there may be differences
between the SAR levels of various LG
phone models, they are all designed
to meet the relevant guidelines for
exposure to radio waves.
• The SAR limit recommended by
the International Commission on
Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection
(ICNIRP) is 2W/kg averaged over 10g
of tissue.
• The highest SAR value for this model
phone tested by DASY4 for use at
the ear is 1.29 W/kg (10 g) and when
worn on the body is 1.08 W/kg(10 g).
• SAR data information for residents in
countries/regions that have adopted
the SAR limit recommended by the
Institute of Electrical and Electronics
Engineers (IEEE), which is 1.6 W/kg
averaged over 1g of tissue.
Product care and
maintenance
WARNING
Only use batteries, chargers and
accessories approved for use

when repair work is required.
• Keep away from electrical appliances
such as TVs, radios, and personal
computers.
Guidelines for safe and ef cient use
60

• Pull off the road and park before
making or answering a call if driving
conditions so require.
• RF energy may affect some
electronic systems in your vehicle
such as car stereos and safety
equipment.
• When your vehicle is equipped

equipment. It can cause the air bag
to fail or cause serious injury due to
improper performance.
• If you are listening to music whilst
out and about, please ensure that
the volume is at a reasonable
level so that you are aware of your
surroundings. This is particularly
imperative when near roads.
Avoid damage to your
hearing
Damage to your hearing can occur
if you are exposed to loud sound for
long periods of time. We therefore
recommend that you do not turn on
or off the handset close to your ear.
We also recommend that music and
call volumes are set to a reasonable
level.
Glass Parts
Some parts of your mobile device are
made of glass. This glass could break
if your mobile device is dropped on a
hard surface or receives a substantial
impact. If the glass breaks, do not
touch or attempt to remove. Stop
using your mobile device until the
glass is replaced by an authorized
service provider.
Blasting area
Do not use the phone where blasting
is in progress. Observe restrictions,
and follow any regulations or rules.
Potentially explosive
atmospheres
• Do not use the phone at a refueling
point.
• Do not use near fuel or chemicals.
• Do not transport or store flammable
gas, liquid, or explosives in the same
compartment of your vehicle as your
mobile phone and accessories.
In aircraft
Wireless devices can cause
interference in aircraft.
• Turn your mobile phone off before
boarding any aircraft.
62
LG GD510 | User Guide
• Do not use it on the ground without
permission from the crew.
Children
Keep the phone in a safe place out
of the reach of small children. It
includes small parts which may cause
a choking hazard if detached.
Emergency calls
Emergency calls may not be available
under all mobile networks. Therefore,
you should never depend solely on
the phone for emergency calls. Check
with your local service provider.
Battery information and care
• You do not need to completely
discharge the battery before
recharging. Unlike other battery
systems, there is no memory effect
that could compromise the battery’s
performance.
• Use only LG batteries and chargers.
LG chargers are designed to
maximize the battery life.
• Do not disassemble or short-circuit
the battery pack.
• Keep the metal contacts of the
battery pack clean.
• Replace the battery when it

• Recharge the battery if it has
not been used for a long time to
maximize usability.
• Do not expose the battery charger
to direct sunlight or use it in high
humidity, such as in the bathroom.
• Do not leave the battery in hot or
cold places, this may deteriorate the
battery performance.
• There is risk of explosion if the
battery is replaced by an incorrect
type.
• Dispose of used batteries according
to the manufacturer’s instructions.
