Bell Mobility assists LG Electronics in LG 150 mobile phone recall
Posted: 28-Jan-2009 [Source: Bell Canada]

[LGE Canada is voluntarily recalling approximately 45,000 LG 150 phones used by Bell Mobility clients at no charge after being notified the phone no longer meets certification.]

Mississauga, ON -- Bell Mobility today announced that it is supporting LG Electronics Canada Inc. in its voluntary recall of approximately 45,000 LG 150 phones in use by Bell Mobility clients with a no-charge phone replacement program.

LG was notified by one of the independent bodies responsible for the certification of mobile phones that the LG 150 mobile phone is no longer certified as meeting the Radio Standards Specifications 102 (RSS 102), Radio Frequency Exposure Compliance of Radiocommunication Apparatus. Consequently, LG has decided to implement a voluntary recall of the LG 150 phone in Canada. The LG 150 was sold in Canada by Bell Mobility, Virgin Mobile, MTS Allstream, SaskTel, Aliant Mobility, KMTS, NorthernTel, Sogetel, Télébec and TBayTel.

Health Canada is of the opinion, based on the review of test results and its assessment of current science, that the past and current use of the LG 150 should not pose immediate or long-term health concerns.

"We are supporting LG in the implementation of its LG 150 recall program," said Wade Oosterman, President of Bell Mobility. "Effective today, our clients who own the LG 150 can take advantage of the straightforward and no-cost phone replacement program we've put in place."

No other LG phones and no other phones supplied to Bell Mobility by any other manufacturers are affected by this recall.

Bell Mobility clients with LG 150 phones can return them to a Bell Store from today until March 31, 2009 and receive an LG replacement phone at no cost in accordance with the terms of LG's recall program. They can also call 1-866-282-6077 or visit bell.ca/lg150recall for additional information and the location of Bell Stores.

The LG 150 sold by Bell Mobility is a compact black flip-phone that can be identified by removing the battery on the back of the phone and reading the label underneath. It reads: "MODEL NO / MODELE: LG 150". Pictures of the phone are also available at bell.ca/lg150recall.
