18 Infrared

Your phone can send and receive certain types
of data by way of the phone’s infrared (IR)
port. This is a wireless transfer, so you don’t
need a cable or additional software.

To connect using IR, the device with which you
want to connect must comply with Infrared
Data Association (IrDA) requirements.
Transmission and reception must be to or from
a compatible phone or device (for example,
another phone, computer, or handheld device).

Do not point the IR (infrared) beam at anyone's eye or allow it to interfere
with other IR devices. This device is a Class 1 Laser product.

Note: The preferable distance between two devices in an infrared
connection is from 3 inches to 3 feet. There must be no obstructions
between the devices when both IR ports are pointed at each other.

Note: Your phone must be switched on to use this function. Do
not switch the phone on when wireless phone use is prohibited or
when it may cause interference or danger.


You can use IR to send and receive phone book entries (business cards)
and reminder notes.
