RF Emissions from Mobile Phones

The United States Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) has noted that, “The weight of scientific evidence has not linked cell phones with any health problems.” The FDA offers tips for reducing exposure to radiofrequency (“RF”) emissions for consumers who may have concerns and suggests the use of hands–free devices, such as headsets, belt clips and holsters.

Hands-free kits

Hands–free kits may include a variety of components such as headsets, belt clips and holsters. Sprint offers various hands-free kits for convenience and comfort and for use in states where the law may require hands-free use while driving. For more information on Sprint’s products and services, including accessories available for each handset, please visit

SAR shields

According to the FDA, products that claim to shield users from RF emissions generally do not work as advertised. Some of the so–called “shields” use special mobile phone cases, while others involve a metal accessory attached to the mobile phone. Unlike hands–free kits, these “shields” may actually interfere with proper operation of the mobile phone and cause the device to increase power output.
