This section contains important regulatory notices about your Sprint Mobile Broadband USB Modem, and also patent and other information.

This Sprint device is designed to be activated on the Sprint network and has a software programming lock that, in part, protects many of the device's features and functions against tampering and unauthorized reprogramming. This device will work with Sprint services - service plans and other services/options must be purchased separately. Operates within the Sprint CDMA frequency band of 800 MHz/1.9 GHz. This device will not operate on any iDEN network. Coverage is not available everywhere. Product meets current FCC Radio Frequency Emission Exposure Guidelines. FCC Equipment Authorization ID number: PKRNVWMC760.

Federal Communications Commission Notice (FCC – United States) Electronic devices, including computers and wireless modems, generate RF energy incidental to their intended function and are therefore subject to FCC rules and regulations.

Section 3B. Regulatory Information

23

This equipment has been tested to, and found to be within the acceptable 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 when the equipment is operated in a residential environment. This equipment generates radio frequency energy and is designed for use in accordance with the manufacturer’s user manual. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in any particular installation. If this equipment causes harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, you are encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures: 䢇 Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna 䢇 Increase the separation between the equipment and the receiver 䢇 Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected 䢇 Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/ television technician for help

24

Section 3B. Regulatory Information

This device complies with Part 15 of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions:

1. This device may not cause harmful interference. 2. This device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation. WARNING: DO NOT ATTEMPT TO SERVICE THE WIRELESS COMMUNICATION DEVICE YOURSELF. SUCH ACTION MAY VOID THE WARRANTY. THE USB760 MODEM IS FACTORY TUNED. NO CUSTOMER CALIBRATION OR TUNING IS REQUIRED. CONTACT SPRINT TECHNICAL SUPPORT FOR INFORMATION ABOUT SERVICING YOUR WIRELESS COMMUNICATION DEVICE. FCC CAUTION: Any changes or modification not

expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the user's authority to operate this equipment. MODIFICATIONS: The FCC requires that you be

notified that any changes or modifications made to this device that are not expressly approved by Sprint may void your authority to operate the equipment. This USB modem is approved for use in normal size notebook computers only (typically with 12” or

RF Exposure/Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) Information This product has been evaluated for SAR and meets the FCC Guidelines for exposure to radio waves. FCC Equipment Authorization ID: PKRNVWMC760 Your wireless modem is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed and manufactured not to exceed the exposure limits for radio frequency (RF) energy set by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) of the U.S. Government. These limits are part of comprehensive guidelines and establish permitted levels of RF energy for the

general population. The guidelines are based on standards that were developed by independent scientific organizations through periodic and thorough evaluation of scientific studies. The standards include a substantial safety margin designed to assure the safety of all persons, regardless of age and health. The exposure standard for wireless devices including mobile USB Modems and wireless modems uses a unit of measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. Tests for SAR are conducted using standard operating positions reviewed by the FCC with the device under test transmitting at its highest certified power level in all frequency bands. Although the SAR is determined at the highest certified power level, the actual SAR level of the USB Modem or modem while operating can be well below the maximum value. This is because the USB Modem is designed to operate at multiple power levels so as to use only the power required to reach the network. In general, the closer you are to a wireless base station antenna, the lower the power output.

larger display screens). To comply with FCC RF exposure requirements, this modem should not be used in configurations that cannot maintain at least 11 mm (approximately 0.43” or 7/16”) from users and bystanders; for example, in certain notebook and tablet computers and configurations where the USB connectors are unable to provide or ensure the necessary separation is available between the modem and its users to satisfy compliance.

Before this device is made available for sale to the public, it must be tested and certified to the FCC that it does not exceed the limit established by the government-adopted requirement for safe exposure. The tests are performed in positions and locations (for example, at the ear or worn on the body) as required by the FCC for each model. THE FCC HAS GRANTED AN EQUIPMENT AUTHORIZATION FOR THIS WIRELESS MODEM WITH ALL REPORTED SAR LEVELS EVALUATED AS IN COMPLIANCE WITH THE FCC RF EXPOSURE GUIDELINES. THE HIGHEST SAR VALUE FOR THIS MODEM WHEN TESTED FOR COMPLIANCE AGAINST FCC STANDARDS WAS 1.53 W/KG USER-LAP POSITION.

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: 䢇 Reorient or relocate the notebook PC. 䢇 Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver. 䢇 Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected. 䢇 Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
