Using a Memory Card
Your i580 phone comes with a memory card,
memory card adapter, and memory card reader.
A memory card is a removable flash memory card
that you can use to store pictures, videos, and
audio files. The memory card can be inserted in
your phone or connected to your computer using
the memory card reader.
When the memory card is in your phone, many
types of pictures, videos, and audio files stored on
the memory card can be viewed or played using
your phone's media center. MP3 audio files stored
on the memory card can be played using your
phone's audio player.
When the memory card is in your phone, you can
save these media items to it:
• Pictures received in InstantLINC Mobile to
Mobile calls
• Pictures and videos taken with your phone’s
camera
• Pictures sent via Bluetooth
A memory card reader connects to your
computer’s USB port and lets you access the
memory card from your computer. This lets you
save files from your computer to your memory card
or save files from your memory card to your
computer.
The memory card adapter makes the memory card
compatible with the memory card reader.
Ensuring Files on the Memory
Card Are Compatible With
Your Phone
When your memory card is connected to your
computer, your computer lets you save files to your
memory card in ways that may not allow you to
access these files when the memory card is in your
i580 phone.
To ensure the files on your memory card are
compatible with your i580 phone, use the folder
structure, file name rules, and formats described in
the following sections.
75
Using a Memory Card
Folder Structure
File Formats
The first time you insert the memory card into your
phone, three folders are created: Audio, Images,
and Video. In order to access files stored on the
memory card, you must store the given file in its
corresponding format folder: audio files to the
Audio folder, pictures to the Images folder, and
videos to the Video folder.
These types of files are compatible with the
playback and display capabilities of your phone’s
Media Center.
Because your phone creates these folders the first
time the memory card is inserted, you should insert
the memory card into your phone at least once
before using it with your computer.
Audio Formats AMR-NB
File Name Rules
Audio Files
When naming files stored on the memory card, the
following rules apply:
File Type
Task
Formats
• The file name can contain both ASCII and
Unicode characters.
• The file name can be up to 32 characters long,
including the file extension and folder name.
• The file name must be in a language your phone
can display. To see which languages your phone
can display, select Settings > Display/Info >
Language. Your phone can display the
languages listed and other languages that use
the same alphabets.

How Your Audio Files Are
Organized
The audio player groups the MP3 audio files on the
memory card into folders and lists.
100
Searching By First Letter
Since you will probably want to use the audio
player primarily to play songs, the audio player
treats the MP3 audio files on the memory card as
songs when grouping and organizing them.
• Genres — Songs grouped by genre. The genres
are listed alphabetically by name. Within each
genre folder, the songs are listed alphabetically
by title.
The audio player uses meta-data found in most
MP3 audio files to group the files on the memory
card by album, artist, and genre. You can also
create your own groupings of audio files, called
playlists.
In the Albums, Artists, and Genres folders, any
MP3 audio files that do not contain enough
metadata to be grouped by album, artist, or genre
are paced in a folder labelled “Unknown”.
When you access the audio player, you see that
the audio files are grouped into these folders:
• Songs — All MP3 audio files on the memory
card inserted in your phone, listed alphabetically
by title.
• Playlists — Folders and lists you have created.
If you have not created any playlists, this folder
contains only the Favorite playlist, which is
empty.
• Albums — Songs grouped by album. The
albums are listed alphabetically by title. The
songs on the albums are listed in the order that
they normally appear on the album.
• Artists — Songs grouped by artist. The artists
are listed alphabetically by name. Within each
artist’s folder, the songs are listed alphabetically
by title.
Searching By First Letter
Any time you are viewing an alphabetical list of
audio files or folders, you can go to the items
starting with any letter by using your phone’s
keypad to enter that letter.
Playing a List and Using
Repeat and Shuffle
When you select an audio file to play, the audio
player plays this audio file and then plays the other
audio files grouped with it. The repeat and shuffle
features help determine which of these songs are
played.
101
Audio Player
If you are not using the repeat or shuffle features,
the audio player plays the audio file you select and
then plays the rest of the files in the list or folder, in
the order they appear, until it gets to the end of the
list or folder. The audio player then goes to the
beginning of the list and pauses until you resume
playing.
The repeat feature lets you set the audio player to
play all the audio files in a list or folder, in order,
starting again at the beginning of the list when it
gets to the end, without pausing or stopping. It also
lets you set the audio player to play one audio file
repeatedly, starting over as soon as it ends.
The shuffle feature lets you set the audio player to
play the audio files in a list or folder in random
order, until you stop it.

files already available through the audio player.
Playlists enable you to group audio files as you like
them, but they do not change anything in the other
folders or on the memory card. Adding a file to a
playlist does not copy it or move it. Removing a file
from a playlist, or deleting the playlist that a file is
listed in, does not delete the file from any other
location.

Bluetooth®
Bluetooth®
Your i580 phone is a Bluetooth device. Bluetooth
devices create seamless voice and data
connections with other Bluetooth devices, such as
another Bluetooth phone, a Bluetooth pen,
headset, or desktop adapter. These connections
are made wirelessly.
You can use your i580 phone to send information
such as Contacts entries, Datebook events, and
pictures to another Bluetooth device.
Devices must be within 32 feet (10 meters) of your
phone to be recognized.
Note: This measurement represents optimal
conditions. Actual conditions may require
you to position your phone closer.
You can only connect your phone to one device at
a time.
144
Understanding Bluetooth®
Access Settings
A Bluetooth device can have either Automatic or
Ask security access. The first time a Bluetooth
device connects to your i580 phone, you must
grant the device permission to connect. You can
then change the access setting of the device to
either Automatic or Ask.
If you set a device to Automatic, then that device
can connect automatically to your phone when it is
in range. If you set a device to Ask, then that
device must request permission before it can
connect to your phone.
Devices are automatically granted permission
during the 10 seconds after bonding. For more
information about bonding, see “Bluetooth®
Bonds” on page 147.
The default for hands free devices, such as
Bluetooth headsets, is Automatic.

Bluetooth® Bonds
A bond is an encryption key that is generated when
two Bluetooth devices exchange a common PIN.
This key verifies the identity of each device, and
encrypts any data transferred between the devices.
Once the PIN is exchanged, the devices do not
have to be in discoverable mode in order to
exchange information. You only need to create a
bond once between two devices.
If you search for devices and you select a device
that you are currently bonded with from the list of
found devices, then the current bond with that
device will be voided. You will have to re-establish
the bond.
Your i580 requires that you create a bond in order
to connect with another device. However, you can
choose to establish bonds with devices without
connecting.
Note: Devices are automatically granted
permission during the 10 seconds after
bonding.
Bluetooth® PINs
Bluetooth devices exchange PINs in order to
establish encrypted transfers between them. When
prompted, enter the Bluetooth PINs.
147
Bluetooth®
Some Bluetooth devices ship with Bluetooth PINs.
Please refer to your Bluetooth device’s user guide
to locate this information.
If a device ships without a Bluetooth PIN, then you
can enter any PIN for that device. To establish a
connection to that device, enter the same PIN for
both your phone and the device. For example, if

151
GPS Enabled
Your phone’s GPS Enabled feature uses
information from Global Positioning System (GPS)
satellites orbiting the Earth to determine the
approximate geographical location of your phone,
expressed as latitude and longitude. The
availability and accuracy of this location
information (and the amount of time that it takes to
calculate it) will vary depending on the environment
in which you are using the GPS feature. For
example, GPS location fixes are often difficult to
obtain indoors, in covered locations, between high
buildings, or in other situations where you have not
established a clear broad view of the sky. Also,
nearby radio and electronic equipment may block
or interfere with reception from these distant
satellites. SEE: “IMPORTANT: Things to Keep in
Mind”.
When you make a 911 emergency call, the GPS
feature of your phone can help emergency
personnel locate you if your phone has adequate
access to GPS satellite signals and your
emergency response center is equipped to process
such information.
You can also use the GPS feature to view your
approximate location. Location information
appears on the phone’s display.
152
Java applications loaded on your phone can also
request your location. If your phone is connected to
a laptop computer or similar device, software
running on that device can request your location.
To protect your privacy, you can control whether
these requests are granted.
IMPORTANT: Things to Keep
in Mind
If you are using the GPS feature of your phone
while driving, please give full attention to driving
and to the road.
Where adequate signals from multiple satellites
are not available (usually because your GPS
antenna cannot establish a view of a wide area of
open sky), the GPS feature of your phone WILL
NOT WORK. Such situations include but are
not limited to:
• In underground locations
• Inside of buildings, trains, or other covered
vehicles
• Under any other metal or concrete roof or
structure
• Between tall buildings or under dense
tree-cover
• Near a powerful radio or television tower
IMPORTANT: Things to Keep in Mind
• Some radios, entertainment equipment and
other electronic devices may generate
signals that can block or interfere with the
GPS receiver ability to receive the distant
satellite signals, particularly when such
devices are operating in close proximity to
the GPS receiver. Therefore, in a 911 call, or
when otherwise using the GPS location
function, always move your phone away
from any such devices.
• When your GPS antenna is covered (for
example, by your hand or other object) or
facing the ground
• In temperature extremes outside the
operating limits of your phone
Walking or driving very slowly may also
substantially reduce GPS performance.
Even where location information can be
calculated in such situations, it may take much
longer to do so, and your location estimate may
not be as accurate. Therefore, in any 911 call,
always report the location to the emergency
response center if you can and if you cannot,
remain on your phone for as long as the
emergency response center instructs you.
Even where adequate signals from multiple
satellites are available, your GPS feature will
only provide an approximate location, often
within 150 feet (45 meters) but sometimes
much further from your actual location. Advice
on how to improve GPS performance is
provided in “Enhancing GPS Performance” on
page 156.
While the GPS feature of your phone can be a
valuable navigational aid, it does not replace the
need for careful navigating and good judgment.
Never rely solely on one device for navigation.
Remember that the accuracy of the location
information and the time needed to obtain it will
vary depending on circumstances, particularly the
ability to receive signals from adequate numbers of
satellites.
On emergency calls, your phone uses assistance
information from the phone network to improve the
speed and accuracy of your phone’s location
calculation: if such assistance information
becomes unavailable, it may reduce the speed and
accuracy of the location calculation.
153
GPS Enabled
The satellites used by the GPS feature of your
phone are controlled by the U.S. government and
are subject to changes implemented in accordance
with the Department of Defense GPS user policy
and the Federal Radionavigation Plan. These
changes may affect the performance of the GPS
feature of your phone.
Making an Emergency Call
Dial 911 to be connected to an emergency
response center. If you are on an active call, you
must end it before calling 911.
When you make an emergency 911 call, the GPS
feature of your phone begins to seek information to
calculate your approximate location. It will take
the GPS feature of your phone some time to
determine your approximate location. Even
where your phone has good access to sufficient
GPS satellite signals and network assist data, it
may take 30 seconds or more to determine the
approximate location. This time will increase where
there is reduced access to satellite signals. When
your approximate location is determined, it is made
available to the appropriate emergency response
center.
154
In some cases, your local 911 emergency
response center may not be equipped to
receive GPS location information. For this
reason, and because the GPS location information
reported is only approximate or may not be
available in your location (see “IMPORTANT:
Things to Keep in Mind” on page 152), always
report your location to the 911 operator you
speak to when making an emergency call, if able,
just as you would when using a phone without GPS
capabilities.
Note: If you are concerned about whether your
local 911 emergency response center is
equipped to receive GPS location
information, contact your local authorities.
In general, if your phone has access to signals
from more GPS satellites, your location will be
determined faster and more accurately than if your
phone has access to signals from fewer GPS
satellites.
If your phone does not have adequate access to
GPS satellites signals, the location of the nearest
cell tower in contact with your phone is
automatically made available to the emergency
response center, if the center has the capability to
receive such information.
Viewing Your Approximate Location
See “Enhancing GPS Performance” on page
156 for information on how to help your phone
determine your location.
Viewing Your Approximate
Location
It may take your phone several minutes to
complete the process of determining your location.
During this time, a message usually appears on
your phone’s display saying your phone is
scanning for satellites. For tips on getting the best
location calculation, see “Enhancing GPS
Performance” on page 156.
1 From the main menu, select GPS > Position.
2 Scroll to view the entire screen.
The Position screen displays the updated
information.
This displays the following information about the
last time your location was calculated:
To cancel a location calculation before it is
completed:
• The time (as Greenwich Mean Time) and date
that the location was last calculated
• The approximate location, expressed as latitude
and longitude
• The estimated accuracy of the calculated
location. This estimate of accuracy is only a very
rough estimate and may vary substantially from
the actual accuracy of the approximate location
information reported.
• The number of satellites used to calculate the
location. In general, more satellites make for
better accuracy.
To calculate your location again:
Press A under Refresh.
Press A under Cancel to return to the Position
screen. -orPress e to return to the idle screen.
Each time approximate location of your phone is
calculated, the latest location information is stored
in your phone and remains there even when your
phone is powered off. You will see this information
the next time you view the Position screen.
If you received a phone call or alert while
attempting to determine your location, the Position
screen will disappear, but your phone will continue
attempting to determine its location. If it is
successful, the new location information will be
displayed the next time you view the Position
screen.

Sometimes the GPS feature of your phone may be
unable to complete a location calculation
successfully. If this happens when you are making
an emergency call, the location of the nearest cell
tower in contact with your phone is made available
to the appropriate emergency response center if
the center has the capability to receive such
information. If this happens when you are trying to
view your location on the phone’s display, you will
see a message indicating that your phone cannot
access satellites.
To improve accuracy and increase your chances of
a successful calculation, do the following while
your phone is determining your approximate
location:
• Stay in the open. The GPS feature works best
where there is nothing between your phone and
a large amount of open sky. If possible, go
outside, away from tall buildings and foliage.
While performance in a building is improved by
moving closer to windows, glass with certain sun
shielding films may block satellite signals.
• Extend your phone antenna.
156
• Hold your phone to enhance reception. Signals
from GPS satellites are transmitted to your GPS
antenna, which is in your phone antenna. Hold
your phone away from your body, giving the
antenna clear access to satellite signals. Do not
cover the antenna area with your fingers or
anything else.

Setting Privacy Options
• Move away from electronic devices. Radios,
entertainment devices, and other electronic
devices may generate interfering signals that
may prevent GPS receiver operation if they are
in close proximity to the phone. Move your
phone away from such devices when using the
GPS-Enabled feature.
• Stand still. If possible, stand still until your phone
is finished determining your location. Moving
your phone at a walking pace while your phone
is calculating your approximate location may
substantially decrease GPS performance.
• In a car. When using the GPS Enabled feature in
a car, position your phone so that the GPS
antenna has good access to GPS signals
through the car’s windows. Typically, the GPS
antenna has best access to GPS signals in a car
when placed near a window.
Note: Although moving your phone at a walking
pace decreases GPS performance,
moving it at the speed of a moving car
does not.
• Stay in SouthernLINC Wireless network
coverage. The SouthernLINC Wireless network
will provide your phone with information that
helps determine your location more quickly and
accurately.
Setting Privacy Options
Your phone’s GPS privacy options control whether
Java applications on your phone or other software
applications may view the location of your
phone.You may set your phone to one of these
GPS privacy options.
Note: Privacy options do not apply to the
transmission of location information
during emergency 911 calls.
To set your GPS privacy options:
1 From the main menu, select GPS > Privacy.
2 If your GPS PIN security feature is enabled,
enter your GPS PIN. (See “Setting the GPS PIN
Security Feature” on page 158 for more
information.)
3 Select the privacy option you want:
• Restricted — No Java or similar software
applications may view the location of your
phone. However, location information may still
be available to the phone’s owner, fleet
manager, or account administrator.
• Unrestricted — All applications may view the
location of your phone, without notifying you.
157
GPS Enabled
• By Permission — When an application
attempts to view the location of your phone,
you will be prompted to give permission.
However, location information may still be
available to the phone’s owner, fleet manager,
or account administrator.
Setting the GPS PIN Security Feature
To prevent your GPS privacy settings from being
altered without your knowledge, your GPS privacy
option can be protected by a PIN.
When you receive your phone, the GPS security
feature is turned off, so you do not have to enter a
GPS PIN to access your GPS privacy options. If
you turn this feature on, you will be required to
enter a GPS PIN to access your GPS privacy
options.
To turn the GPS Enabled security feature on or off:
1 From the main menu, select Settings >
Security > GPS PIN.
2 Select On or Off.
3 Enter the current GPS PIN.
Note: When you receive your phone, your GPS
PIN is 0000.
4 Press A under Ok.

To change your GPS PIN:

Using GPS with Map Software
You can use the GPS feature of your phone to
provide approximate location data to a laptop
computer or similar device that is running
interactive map software such as that made by
DeLorme or Microsoft. This way, if your phone has
good access to GPS signals, your approximate
position on a map can be made available as you
travel in a vehicle.
To do this, connect your phone to your laptop (or
other device) with a serial data cable, and set your
phone to transmit data (see “Getting Started” on
page 159). Your phone then provides your
approximate location to the device running the map
Using GPS with Map Software
software, which displays your location on a map.
Your phone provides an updated location every
second and the map software displays your
changing location on its map.
Getting Started
See “Enhancing GPS Performance” on page
156 for more details on obtaining good location
information.
1 Open the connector cover.
To connect your phone to your laptop or other
device:
Note: Because your phone is continuously
determining your location, using the GPS
feature of your phone with map software
uses the phone’s battery power quickly.
Software Compatibility
Your phone sends location information to your
laptop or other device using the standard National
Marine Electronics Association (NMEA) format.
Your phone supports output messages in
NMEA-0183 format and supports the following
NMEA-0183 sentences: GGA, GLL, GSA, GSV,
RMC, and VTG.

Temporary Profiles
Storing a Temporary Profile
If your phone is set to create temporary profiles, a
temporary profile is created when you make
changes to settings without switching or editing
profiles.
To store a temporary profile as a new profile:
A temporary profile is based on the profile in effect
when you made the changes, but reflects the
changed settings. Making more changes further
updates the temporary profile, for as long as it is in
effect.
A temporary profile stays in effect until you switch
profiles, power off your phone, or delete it (or the
profile it is based on) from the list of profiles.
If you do not store a temporary profile, it is deleted
when you switch profiles, switch between
LINCaround and network mode, or power off your
phone.
A temporary profile is automatically given the same
name as the profile it is based on, but with an
asterisk (*) in front of it.
When you view a temporary profile’s settings, the
options that differ from the profile it is based on
have an asterisk in front of them.

Safety and General
Information
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON SAFE AND
EFFICIENT OPERATION.
READ THIS INFORMATION BEFORE USING
YOUR INTEGRATED MULTI-SERVICE
PORTABLE RADIO.
RF Operational
Characteristics
Your radio product contains a radio frequency
transmitter to convey the information you wish to
send as well as occasional automatic signals used
to sustain connection to the wireless network, and
a receiver which enables you to receive
communication and connection information from
the network.
Portable Radio Product
Operation and EME Exposure
Your Motorola radio product is designed to comply
with the following national and international
standards and guidelines regarding exposure of
human beings to radio frequency electromagnetic
energy (EME):
184
• United States Federal Communications
Commission, Code of Federal Regulations; 47
CFR part 2 sub-part J.
• American National Standards Institute (ANSI) /
Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers
(IEEE). C95. 1-1992.
• Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers
(IEEE). C95. 1-1999 Edition.
• International Commission on Non-Ionizing
Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) 1998.
• Ministry of Health (Canada). Safety Code 6.
Limits of Human Exposure to Radiofrequency
Electromagnetic Fields in the Frequency Range
from 3 kHz to 300 GHz, 1999.
• Australian Communications Authority

electromagnetic fields in the radio frequency
range between 9 kHz and 300 GHz."
"Attachment to Resolution 303 from July 2,
2002."
Portable Radio Product Operation and EME Exposure
To assure optimal radio product performance
and make sure human exposure to radio
frequency electromagnetic energy is within the
guidelines set forth in the above standards,
always adhere to the following procedures:
Phone Operation
When placing or receiving a phone call, hold your
radio product as you would a wireline telephone.
Speak directly into the microphone.
Two-way radio operation
Your radio product has been designed and tested
to comply with national and international standards
and guidelines regarding human exposure to RF
electromagnetic energy, when operated in the
two-way mode (at the face, or at the abdomen
when using an audio accessory) at usage factors
of up to 50% talk/50% listen.
Transmit no more than the rated duty factor of 50%
of the time. To transmit (talk), push the
Push-To-Talk (PTT) button. To receive calls,
release the PTT button. Transmitting 50% of the
time or less, is important because this radio
generates measurable RF energy only when
transmitting (in terms of measuring for standards
compliance).
When using your radio product as a
traditional two-way radio, hold the
radio product in a vertical position
with the microphone one to two
inches (2.5 to 5 cm) away from the
lips.

exceed FCC RF exposure guidelines. If you do
not use a Motorola approved body-worn
accessory and are not using the radio product
in the intended use positions along side the
head in the phone mode or in front of the face
in the two-way radio mode, then ensure the
antenna and the radio product are kept the
following minimum distances from the body
when transmitting
• Phone or Two-way radio mode: one inch (2.5
cm)
• Data operation using any data feature with or
without an accessory cable: one inch (2.5

Safety and General Information
ALL MODELS WITH FCC ID AZ489FT5848 MEET THE
GOVERNMENT’S REQUIREMENTS FOR EXPOSURE
TO RADIO WAVES.
Your wireless phone is a radio transmitter and receiver. It
is designed and manufactured not to exceed the emission
limits for exposure to radiofrequency (RF) energy set by
the Federal Communications Commission 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 mobile phones
employs a unit of measurement known as the Specific
Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit set by the FCC is
1.6W/kg.1 Tests for SAR are conducted using standard
operating positions reviewed by the FCC with the phone
transmitting at its highest certified power level in all tested
frequency bands. Although the SAR is determined at the
highest certified power level, the actual SAR level of the
phone while operating can be well below the maximum
value. This is because the phone 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.
Before a phone model is available for sale to the public, it
must be tested and certified to the FCC that is does not
exceed the limit established by the government-adopted
requirement for safe exposure. The tests are performed in
positions and locations (e.g., at the ear and worn on the
186
body) as required by the FCC for each model. The highest
SAR value for this model phone when tested for use at the
ear is 1.02 W/kg and when tested on the body, as
described in this user guide, is 1.30 W/kg during packet
data transmission. (Body-worn measurements differ
among phone models, depending upon available
accessories and FCC requirements.)2
While there may be differences between the SAR levels of
various phones and at various positions, they all meet the
government requirement for safe exposure.
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this
model phone with all reported SAR levels evaluated as in
compliance with the FCC RF exposure guidelines. SAR
information on this model phone is on file with the FCC
and can be found under the Display Grant section of
http://www.fcc.gov/oet/fccid after searching on FCC ID
AZ489FT5848.
Additional information on Specific Absorption Rates (SAR)
can be found on the Cellular Telecommunications Industry
Association (CTIA) web-site at http://www.wow-com.com.
In the United States and Canada, the SAR limit for
mobile phones used by the public is 1.6 watts/kg (W/kg)
averaged over one gram of tissue. The standard
incorporates a substantial margin of safety to give
additional protection for the public and to account for any
variations in measurements.
2 The SAR information reported to the FCC includes the
FCC-accepted Motorola testing protocol, assessment
procedure, and measurement uncertainty range for this
product.

Hearing Aid Compatibility
Hearing Aid
Compatibility
When some mobile phones are used with certain
hearing devices (including hearing aids and
cochlear implants), users may detect a noise which
can interfere with the effectiveness of the hearing
device.
Some hearing devices are more “immune” than
others to this interference noise, and mobile
phones can also vary in the amount of interference
noise they may generate at any given time. ANSI
standard C63.19 was developed to provide a
standardized means of measuring both mobile
phone and hearing devices to determine usability
rating categories for both.
Ratings have been developed for mobile phones to
assist hearing device users find phones that may
be compatible with their particular hearing device.
Not all mobile phones are rated for compatibility
with hearing devices, but mobile phones that are
rated should have the rating available. This rating
may depend on the position of a retractable
antenna.
192
Results will vary depending on the user’s hearing
device and individual type and degree of hearing
loss. If a hearing device is particularly vulnerable to
interference noise, even a mobile phone with a
higher rating may still cause unacceptable noise
levels in the hearing device. Evaluate your
personal needs by trying out the mobile phone with
your hearing device.
“M” Rating: Mobile phones rated M3 or M4 meet
FCC requirements for hearing aid compatibility and
are likely to generate less interference to hearing
devices than phones that are not labeled. (M4 is
the “better” or higher of the two ratings.)
"T" Rating: Mobile phones rated T3 or T4 meet
FCC requirements for compatibility with
telecoil-type ("T Switch" or "Telephone Switch")
hearing devices and are likely to be more usable
with such hearing devices than unrated phones.
(T4 is the "better" or higher of the two ratings.)
Hearing devices may also be measured for
immunity to interference noise from mobile phones.
In some cases, hearing devices can be modified or
“hardened” to improve operation with a mobile
phone. Your hearing device manufacturer or
hearing health professional may help you improve
the interaction of your mobile phone and hearing
device. Not all hearing devices are rated for
compatibility with mobile phones, but hearing
devices that are rated should have the rating
available. Be sure to evaluate your personal needs
by trying out this mobile phone with your specific
hearing device, using both antenna positions if
equipped with a retractable antenna.

Driving Safety Tips
“Safety is your most important call!”
Your Motorola wireless telephone gives you the
powerful ability to communicate by voice — almost
anywhere, anytime, wherever wireless phone
service is available and safe conditions allow. But
an important responsibility accompanies the
benefits of wireless phones, one that every user
must uphold.
When driving a car, driving is your first
responsibility. If you find it necessary to use your
wireless phone while behind the wheel of a car,
practice good common sense and remember the
following tips:
• Get to know your Motorola wireless phone and
its features such as speed dial and redial. If
available, these features help you to place your
call without taking your attention off the road.
• When available, use a hands-free device. If
possible, add an additional layer of convenience
to your wireless phone with one of the many
Motorola Original hands-free accessories
available today.
• Position your wireless phone within easy reach.
Be able to access your wireless phone without
removing your eyes from the road. If you receive
an incoming call at an inconvenient time, if
possible, let your voice mail answer it for you.
• Let the person you are speaking with know you
are driving; if necessary, suspend the call in
heavy traffic or hazardous weather conditions.
Rain, sleet, snow, ice, and even heavy traffic can
be hazardous.
• If you receive an incoming call at an
inconvenient time do not take notes or look up
phone numbers while driving. Jotting down a “to
do” list or going through your address book
takes attention away from your primary
responsibility — driving safely.
• Dial sensibly and assess the traffic; if possible,
place calls when you are not moving or before
pulling into traffic. Try to plan calls when your car
will be stationary. If you need to make a call
while moving, dial only a few numbers, check
the road and your mirrors, then continue.
• Do not engage in stressful or emotional
conversations that may be distracting. Make
people you are talking with aware you are
driving and suspend conversations which have
the potential to divert your attention away from
the road.
207
Driving Safety Tips
• Your phone can perform many other functions
besides allowing you to make and receive calls.
Do not let these features distract you from
driving. Use them only when it is safe to do so.
• Use your wireless phone to call for help. Dial
9-1-1 or other local emergency number in the
case of fire, traffic accident or medical
emergencies.
• Use your wireless phone to help others in
emergencies. If you see an auto accident, crime
in progress or other serious emergency where
lives are in danger, call 9-1-1 or other local
emergency number, as you would want others to
do for you.
• Call roadside assistance or a special
non-emergency wireless assistance number
when necessary. If you see a broken-down
vehicle posing no serious hazard, a broken
traffic signal, a minor traffic accident where no
one appears injured, or a vehicle you know to be
stolen, call roadside assistance or other special
non-emergency wireless number.
