• Lithium Ion batteries have a self discharge rate
and without use, lose about 1% of their charge
per day.
• The battery capacity is degraded if the battery is
stored for long periods while fully charged. If
long term storage is required, store at half
capacity.
Inserting and Removing Your SIM
Important: Do not touch the gold-colored areas of
your SIM card.
The SIM card is designed for optimal Contacts
storage and feature use. For Boost Mobile® SIM
card compatibility information, visit
www.boostmobile.com/cs_faqs_thesimcard.html.
Battery Use and Maintenance
• The Motorola iDEN Approved Lithium Ion
chargers provide optimum performance. Other
chargers may not fully charge the iDEN Lithium
Ion battery or may yield a reduced number of
lifetime charge cycles.
• Extreme temperatures degrade battery
performance. Do not store the battery where
temperatures exceed 140°F (60°C) or fall below
4°F (-20°C).

Note: In some cases, Contacts may not be
accessible if you move your SIM card to

To optimize your phone's performance, extend the
antenna when you make or receive a call, and
avoid touching the antenna with any body part.
Important: Failure to fully extend or retract the
antenna until the antenna clicks into
place causes severely degraded
performance, which may result in
missed calls, dropped calls, or garbled
audio.

Java Applications and GPS
Enabled
Some Java applications can make use of your
phone’s GPS feature to determine the approximate
geographical location of your phone. (See “GPS
(Global Positioning System) Enabled” on page 105
for more information on the GPS feature.)
However, for privacy reasons, you may not always
want Java applications to access the location of
your phone. Your phone protects your privacy by
giving you the option to block all or some Java
applications from accessing the location of your
phone.
Setting Privacy for All Java
Applications
These options control the privacy of all Java
applications on your phone:

GPS (Global Positioning
System) Enabled
You can also use the GPS feature to view your
approximate location. Location information
appears on the phone’s display.
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”.
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.
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.
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
105
GPS (Global Positioning System) Enabled
• Between tall buildings or under dense
tree-cover
• Near a powerful radio or television tower
• 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
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.
Walking or driving very slowly may also
substantially reduce GPS performance.
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.
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 108.
106
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.
Viewing Your Approximate Location
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.
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 105), 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.
See “Enhancing GPS Performance” on page
108 for information on how to help your phone
determine your location.
Viewing Your Approximate
Location
1 From the main menu, select GPS > Position.
2 Scroll to view the entire screen.
This displays the following information about the
last time your location was calculated:
• The time (as Greenwich Mean Time) and date
that the location was last calculated.
• The approximate location, expressed as latitude
and longitude.
107
GPS (Global Positioning System) Enabled
• 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.
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”.
The Position screen displays the updated
information.
To cancel a location calculation before it is
completed:
Press A under Cancel to return to the Position
screen. -orPress e to return to the idle screen.
108
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.
Enhancing GPS Performance
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.
Enhancing GPS Performance
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.
• 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.
GPS antenna
109
GPS (Global Positioning System) Enabled
• 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 network coverage. Depending on who
your service provider is, the network will provide
your phone with information that helps
determine your location more quickly and
accurately.
Updating Satellite Almanac
Data
Another way to keep the GPS feature of your
phone working well is to keep your satellite
almanac data up to date.
110
The United States government maintains an
almanac of data about where GPS satellites are as
they orbit the Earth. This information is available to
your phone. Keeping your satellite almanac up to
date helps your phone determine your location
more quickly.
The almanac contains information about the
location of satellites, their operational status, and
other satellite information. Keeping this information
updated enhances the performance of your GPS
feature. In most cases, your phone will be able to
get a fix in strong satellite signal conditions with
outdated almanac data, but it may take longer.
Note: When you make an emergency call, your
phone does not rely upon the almanac to
determine your location.
If your satellite almanac data is out of date, your
phone may prompt you to update it. Follow the
instructions that appear on the phone’s display.
You may be asked to go to a web site or call a
customer care number.
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.
Setting Privacy Options
Note: Privacy options do not apply to the
transmission of location information
during emergency 911 calls.

Using GPS with Map Software
Software Compatibility
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.
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

To do this, connect your phone to your laptop (or
other device) with a data cable and set your phone
to transmit data (see “Getting Started” on page
112). Your phone then provides your approximate
location to the device running the map 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.
The map software running on your laptop or other
device must support NMEA 3.0.
Getting Started
To connect your phone to your laptop or other
device:
1 Locate the accessory connector.

108 for more details on obtaining good location
information.
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.

Temporary Profiles
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.
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 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.

may require additional programming or Equipment
or changes to assigned codes or numbers that may
require programming fees. Company reserves the
right to change or remove assigned codes and/or
numbers when such change is reasonably
necessary in the conduct of its business.

participant if that participant responds more than
six (6) seconds after the other party finishes its
BOOST MOBILETM CONNECT transmission.
Customer accepts responsibility for Airtime
charges from incoming telephone calls to the
handset from the time that Customer responds to
the call. Service charges may apply to some
service options when Customer calls the BOOST
MOBILETM Customer Service number

disputes any Service charges, Customer must
submit a written explanation within forty five (45)
days from the date Company debits Customer’s
account for the disputed Service. If Company
determines that an error was made with respect to
any disputed Service charges, Company shall
credit Customer’s account in the amount of the
error. If Customer does not pay the amount in
dispute owed to Company, Company may exercise
any remedies it may have under this Agreement for
non-payment of Service charges. Company
reserves the right to modify any and all elements of
the Service charges at any time by giving notice of
such changes to Customer. If Customer continues
to use the Service after the Company has provided
such notice, Customer will be deemed to have
accepted the changes, and such changes will be
effective immediately upon Customer’s use of the
Service following notice of the changes, unless the
Company’s communication indicates a later
effective date. If Customer does not accept the
changes, Customer must immediately cease all
use of the Service.

TERMINATION OR EXPIRATION OF THIS
AGREEMENT.
A. ARBITRATION PROCEDURES. YOU
MUST FIRST PRESENT ANY CLAIM OR
DISPUTE TO US BY CONTACTING BOOST
MOBILE CUSTOMER CARE, IN WRITING, TO
ALLOW US THE OPPURTUNITY TO
RESOLVE THE DISPUTE. You may invoke

the circumstances giving rise to it. The
arbitration of any dispute or claim shall be
conducted in accordance with the Wireless
Industry Arbitration rules (“WIA Rules”) of the
144
American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as
modified by this Agreement. You and we agree
that this Agreement evidences a transaction in

preparation and presentation of evidence at the
arbitration.
C. WAIVER OF PUNITIVE DAMAGE CLAIMS
AND CLASS ACTION. By this Agreement, both
Customer and Company are waiving certain
rights to litigate disputes in court. If for any
reason the arbitration clause is deemed
inapplicable or invalid, Customer and Company
both waive, to the fullest extent allowed by law,
any right we might otherwise have to recover
punitive or exemplary damages and any right to
pursue any claims on a class or consolidated
basis or in a representative capacity.

both parties (and, in the case of the Company, by
an officer of the Company). Should any provision
of this Agreement be found illegal or in
contravention of the law, such provision shall be
considered null and void but the remainder of this
Agreement shall not be affected thereby. The
failure of Company, at any time to require the
performance by Customer of the provisions of this
Agreement shall not affect in any way the right to
require such performances at any later time, nor

provision hereof be taken or held to be a waiver of
compliance with or breach of any other provision or
a continuing waiver of such provision.
17. ASSIGNMENT/RESALE/GOVERNING LAW –

amounts to Customer, which shall be paid by
Customer when due, in connection with
Customer’s access to such 911 or other

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):
148
• 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
Radiocommunications (Electromagnetic
Radiation - Human Exposure) Standard 2003.
• ANATEL, Brasil Regulatory Authority, Resolution
303 (July 2, 2002) "Regulation of the limitation of
exposure to electrical, magnetic, and
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.
Body-worn operation
To maintain compliance with FCC RF exposure
guidelines, if you wear a radio product on your
body when transmitting, always place the radio
product in a Motorola approved clip, holder,
holster, case or body harness for this product.
Use of non-Motorola-approved accessories may
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
cm)
149
Safety and General Information
Antenna Care
Use only the supplied or an approved
replacement antenna. Unauthorized antennas,
modifications, or attachments could damage the
radio product and may violate FCC regulations.
DO NOT hold the antenna when the radio
product is “IN USE”. Holding the antenna affects
call quality and may cause the radio product to
operate at a higher power level than needed.

ALL MODELS WITH FCC ID AZ489FT5845 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.
150
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
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 1.45 W/kg and when tested on the body, as
described in this user guide, is 1.23 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.
Electro Magnetic Interference/Compatibility
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
AZ489FT5845.
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.

Safety and General Information
Medical Devices
Other Medical Devices
Pacemakers
If you use any other personal medical device,
consult the manufacturer of your device to
determine if it is adequately shielded from RF
energy. Your physician may be able to assist you
in obtaining this information.
The Advanced Medical Technology Association
(AdvaMed) recommends that a minimum
separation of 6 inches (15 cm) be maintained
between a handheld wireless radio product and a
pacemaker. These recommendations are
consistent with those of the U.S. Food and Drug
Administration.
Persons with pacemakers should:
• ALWAYS keep the radio product more than 6
inches (15 cm) from their pacemaker when the
radio product is turned ON.
• Not carry the radio product in a breast pocket.
• Use the ear opposite the pacemaker to minimize
the potential for interference.
• Turn the radio product OFF immediately if you
have any reason to suspect that interference is
taking place.
Hearing Aids
Some digital wireless radio products may interfere
with some hearing aids. In the event of such
interference, you may want to consult your hearing
aid manufacturer to discuss alternatives.
152
Use While Driving
Check the laws and regulations on the use of radio
products in the area where you drive. Always obey
them.
When using the radio product while driving, please:
• Give full attention to driving and to the road.
• Use hands-free operation, if available.
• Pull off the road and park before making or
answering a call if driving conditions so require.
Operational Warnings
Operational Warnings
For Vehicles with an Air
Bag
!
Do not place a portable radio product in the area
over the air bag or in the air bag deployment area.
Air bags inflate with great force. If a portable radio
is placed in the air bag deployment area and the air
bag inflates, the radio product may be propelled
with great force and cause serious injury to
occupants of the vehicle.
Potentially Explosive Atmospheres
Turn off your radio product prior to entering any
area with a potentially explosive atmosphere,
unless it is a radio product type especially qualified
for use in such areas as “Intrinsically Safe” (for
example, Factory Mutual, CSA, or UL approved).
Do not remove, install, or charge batteries in such
areas. Sparks in a potentially explosive
atmosphere can cause an explosion or fire
resulting in bodily injury or even death.
Note: The areas with potentially explosive
atmospheres referred to above include
fueling areas such as below decks on
boats, fuel or chemical transfer or
storage facilities, areas where the air
contains chemicals or particles, such
as grain, dust or metal powders, and
any other area where you would
normally be advised to turn off your
vehicle engine. Areas with potentially
explosive atmospheres are often but
not always posted.
Blasting Caps and Areas
To avoid possible interference with blasting
operations, turn off your radio product when you
are near electrical blasting caps, in a blasting area,
or in areas posted: “Turn off two-way radio”. Obey
all signs and instructions.
Operational Cautions
Batteries
!
All batteries can cause property damage and/or
bodily injury, such as burns if a conductive material
such as jewelry, keys, or beaded chains touches
exposed terminals. The conductive material may
complete an electrical circuit (short circuit) and
become quite hot. Exercise care in handling any
charged battery, particularly when placing it inside
a pocket, purse, or other container with metal
objects. To reduce the risk of injury, batteries
should not be exposed to fire, disassembled, or
crushed.
153

personal injury and damage.
Accessory Safety Information
• To reduce the risk of damage to the cord or plug,
pull by the plug rather than the cord when you
disconnect the battery charger from the power
source outlet.
• Do not operate any battery charger with a
damaged cord or plug — replace them
immediately.
• Battery chargers may become warm during
operation, but not hot. If it becomes hot to the
touch, unplug it from the power outlet
immediately and discontinue its use.
• Use of a non-recommended attachment to a
battery charger may result in a risk of fire,
electric shock, or injury to persons.
• Make sure the battery charger power cord is
located so that it will not be stepped on, tripped
over, or subjected to damage or stress.
• An extension cord should not be used with any
battery charger unless absolutely necessary.
Use of an improper extension cord could result
in a risk of fire and electric shock. If an extension
cord must be used, make sure that:
• The pins on the plug of the extension cord are
the same number, size, and shape as those
on the plug of the charger.
• The extension cord is properly wired and in
good electrical condition.
•
•
•

•
•
• The cord size is 18AWG for lengths up to 100
feet and 16AWG for lengths up to 150 feet.
Do not operate any battery charger if it has
received a sharp blow, has been dropped, or
has been damaged in any way; take it to a
qualified service technician.
Do not disassemble a battery charger; take it to
a qualified service technician when service or
repair is required. Incorrect reassembly may
result in a risk of electric shock or fire.
Maximum ambient temperature around the
power supply or transformer of any battery
charger should not exceed 40°C (104°F).
The output power from the power supply or
transformer must not exceed the rating given on
the Desktop Dual-Pocket Charger.
The disconnection from the line voltage is made
by unplugging the power supply from the AC
receptacle.

155
Hearing Aid Compatibility
Hearing Aid
Compatibility
When some mobile phones are used with certain
hearing devices (including hearing aids andcochlear
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.
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.
156
“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
this mobile phone is equipped with a retractable
antenna.
