HEARING AID COMPATIBILITY (HAC)REGULATIONS FOR MOBILE PHONESIn 2003, the FCC adopted rules to make digital wirelesstelephones compatible with hearing aids and cochlearimplants. Although analog wireless phones do not usuallycause interference with hearing aids or cochlear implants,digital wireless phones sometimes do because ofelectromagnetic energy emitted by the phone’s antenna,backlight, or other components. Your phone is compliantwith FCC HAC regulations (ANSI C63.19- 2011). Whilesome wireless phones are used near some hearingdevices (hearing aids and cochlear implants), users maydetect a buzzing, humming, or whining noise. Somehearing devices are more immune than others to thisinterference noise and phones also vary in the amountof interference they generate. The wireless telephoneindustry has developed a rating system for wirelessphones to assist hearing device users in finding phonesthat may be compatible with their hearing devices. Notall phones have been rated. Phones that are rated havethe rating on their box or a label located on the box. Theratings are not guarantees. Results will vary dependingon the user’s hearing device and hearing loss. If yourhearing device happens to be vulnerable to interference,you may not be able to use a rated phone successfully.Trying out the phone with your hearing device is the bestway to evaluate it for your personal needs.This phone has been tested and rated for use withhearing aids for some of the wireless technologies thatit uses. However, there may be some newer wirelesstechnologies used in this phone that have not beentested yet for use with hearing aids. It is important totry the different features of this phone thoroughly andin different locations, using your hearing aid or cochlearimplant, to determine if you hear any interfering noise.Consult your service provider or the manufacturer of thisphone for information on hearing aid compatibility. If youhave questions about return or exchange policies, consultyour service provider or phone retailer.M-Ratings: Phones rated M3 or M4 meet FCCrequirements and are likely to generate less interferenceto hearing devices than phones that are not labeled. M4is the better/higher of the two ratings.T-Ratings: Phones rated T3 or T4 meet FCC requirementsand are likely to be more usable with a hearing device’stelecoil (“T Switch” or “Telephone Switch”) than unratedphones. T4 is the better/ higher of the two ratings. (Notethat not all hearing devices have telecoils in them.)Hearing devices may also be rated. Your hearing devicemanufacturer or hearing health professional may help youfind this rating.
