Getting Started With Sprint PCS Service
Determining if Your Phone is Already Activated
If you purchased your phone at a Sprint Store, it is probably
activated, unlocked, and ready to use. If you received your
phone in the mail, it probably has been activated; all you
need to do is unlock it.
If your phone is not activated, please refer to the activation
card included with your phone.
Unlocking Your Phone
To unlock your phone, follow these easy steps:
1. Press
to turn the phone on.
2. Press Unlock (
Note:
).
To select a softkey, press the softkey button directly below the
softkey text that appears at the bottom left and bottom right
of your phone’s display screen. Softkey actions change
according to the screen you’re viewing and will not appear if
there is no corresponding action available.
3. Enter your four-digit lock code. (For security purposes,
the code is not visible as you type.)
Tip:
4
If you can’t recall your lock code, try using the last four digits
of either your Social Security number or wireless phone
number or try 0000 or NATL (6285). If none of these work, call
Sprint Customer Service at 1-888-211-4PCS (4727).

Customer Service. Your default account password is the last
four digits of your Social Security number. If you are not the
account owner (if someone else receives the invoice for your
Sprint PCS Service), you can get a sub-account password at
www.sprint.com.
Voicemail Password
You'll create your voicemail password (or passcode) when you
set up your voicemail. See “Setting Up Your Voicemail” on
page 172 for more information on your voicemail password.
Sprint PCS Vision or Sprint Power Vision Password
With your A900M by Samsung, you may elect to set up a Sprint
PCS Vision or Sprint Power Vision password. This optional
password may be used to authorize purchase of Premium
Services content and to protect personal information on
multi-phone accounts.

Using the wrong battery charger could cause damage to
your phone and void the warranty.
Using the Travel Charger

power interface connector and the other end into an
electrical outlet.
䡲 A red indicator light on the phone lets you know the

TTY Use With Sprint PCS Service
Your Phone’s
A TTY (also known as a TDD or Text Telephone) is a
telecommunications device that allows people who are
deaf, hard of hearing, or who have speech or language
disabilities, to communicate by telephone.
Your phone is compatible with select TTY devices. Please
check with the manufacturer of your TTY device to ensure
that it supports digital wireless transmission. Your phone and
TTY device will connect via a special cable that plugs into your
phone's headset jack. If this cable was not provided with your
TTY device, contact your TTY device manufacturer to purchase
the connector cable.
When establishing your Sprint PCS Service, please call Sprint
Customer Service via the state Telecommunications Relay
Service (TRS) by first dialing
. Then provide
the state TRS with this number: 866-727-4889.
To turn TTY Options on or off:
1. Press Menu > Settings > Others > TTY Options from
standby mode. (An informational message is displayed.)
2. Press
.
3. Select TTY Full, TTY + Hear, TTY + Talk, or TTY Off and
press

Note:
In TTY Mode, your phone will display the TTY access icon
when a headset or TTY device is plugged in.
If TTY mode is enabled, the audio quality of non-TTY
devices connected to the headset jack may be impaired.
WARNING
911 Emergency Calling
Sprint recommends that TTY users make emergency
calls by other means, including Telecommunications
Relay Services (TRS), analog cellular, and landline
communications. Wireless TTY calls to 911 may be
corrupted when received by public safety answering
points (PSAPs), rendering some communications
unintelligible. The problem encountered appears
related to TTY equipment or software used by PSAPs.
This matter has been brought to the attention of the
FCC, and the wireless industry and PSAP community
are currently working to resolve this.

Using Call Guard
Roaming
Roaming is the ability to make or receive calls when you’re off the
Nationwide Sprint PCS Network. Your new digital dual-band
A900M by Samsung works anywhere on the Nationwide
Sprint PCS Network and allows you to roam on other 1900
and 800 MHz digital networks where we’ve implemented
roaming agreements with other carriers.
This section explains how roaming works as well as special
features that let you manage your roaming experience.
Section 2D: Controlling Your Roaming Experience
79
Understanding Roaming
Recognizing the Roaming Icon on the Display Screen
Your phone’s display screen always lets you know when
you’re off the Nationwide Sprint PCS Network. Any time you
are roaming, the phone displays the roaming icon ( ).
Tip:
Remember, when you are using your phone off the
Nationwide Sprint PCS Network, always dial numbers using
11 digits (1 + area code + number).
Note:
Unless your Sprint PCS Service Plan includes roaming, you will
pay a higher per-minute rate for roaming calls.
Roaming on Other Digital Networks
When you’re roaming on digital networks, your call quality
and security will be similar to the quality you receive when
making calls on the Nationwide Sprint PCS Network.
However, you may not be able to access certain features, such
as Sprint PCS Vision or Sprint Power Vision.
Note:
80
If you’re on a call when you leave the Nationwide Sprint PCS
Network and enter an area where roaming is available, your
call is dropped. If your call is dropped in an area where you
think Sprint PCS Service is available, turn your phone off and
on again to reconnect to the Nationwide Sprint PCS Network.
Section 2D: Controlling Your Roaming Experience
Checking for Voicemail Messages While Roaming
When you are roaming off the Nationwide Sprint PCS
Network, you will not receive on-phone notification of new
voicemail messages. Callers can still leave messages, but you
will need to periodically check your voicemail for new
messages if you are in a roaming service area for an extended
time.
To check your voicemail while roaming:
1. Dial 1 + area code + your phone number.
2. When you hear your voicemail greeting, press
.
3. Enter your passcode at the prompt and follow the voice
prompts.
When you return to the Nationwide Sprint PCS Network,
voicemail notification will resume as normal.

Service is unavailable, the phone searches for an
alternate system.
Roaming only forces the phone to seek a roaming
system. The previous setting (Sprint Only or
Automatic) is restored the next time the phone is
turned on.
Sprint allows you to access the Nationwide
Sprint PCS Network only and prevents roaming on
other networks.
Section 2D: Controlling Your Roaming Experience
Using Call Guard
Your phone has two ways of alerting you when you are
roaming off the Nationwide Sprint PCS Network: the
onscreen roaming icon and Call Guard. Call Guard makes it
easy to manage your roaming charges by requiring an extra
step before you can place or answer a roaming call. (This
additional step is not required when you make or receive calls
while on the Nationwide Sprint PCS Network.)
To turn Call Guard on or off:
1. Select Menu > Settings > Roaming > Call Guard.
2. Highlight On or Off and press
Note:
.
Voice dialing and speed dialing are not available when you
are roaming with Call Guard enabled.

In addition to Sprint PCS Voice Command (see page 225),
built-in voice recognition software allows you to say
commands to perform common functions supported by your

recognition feature. You simply say the pre-designated
command displayed on your screen in a normal tone of voice
to perform the desired function.
To activate voice recognition:
1. Press and hold
. (The phone prompts you to say a
command.)
2. Wait for the beep and then say one of the following
commands:
䡲 Call <Name or #>
䡲 Send Email <Name>
䡲 Send Text <Name>
䡲 Lookup <Name>
䡲 Go To <App>
䡲 Check <Item>
When it recognizes one of these commands, the phone
launches the associated application. If the phone does not
hear a command within approximately eight seconds, it
deactivates voice recognition without taking any action.

Voice-Activated dialing.
To access voice launch:
Voice Services
1. Press Menu > Settings > Voice Service.
2. Select Voice Launch and press
.
3. Select Talk Key or Talk Key and Flip Open and press
.
Using Call <Name or #>
You can voice dial from your phone with a single command by
saying “Call” followed by a name or nickname (see contact
list documentations for details) and (optionally) a label stored
in your contact list, or “Call” followed by a valid phone
number. You can also say “Call” by itself and be prompted for
the name or number.
Calling Contacts Entries
To place a call using Call <Name or #>:
1. Press and hold
.
2. Say “Call” followed by the name and the label for that
number. For example, say “Call John Mobile.” The phone
dials the number stored for the contact “John” with the
label “Mobile.”
If the location recognized for the name does not have a
number stored in Contacts, VoiceSignal will play the message
“No number available, John Smith, Mobile,” and then launch
the Contacts application for that name.
Section 2H: Using Your Phone’s Voice Services
115
If a name has only a single number, or if you know the name
but are not sure which number to call, say “Call” followed by
the name only. For example, say “Call John.” If the name is
recognized and there is only one number for the name, your
phone immediately places the call. If there are multiple
numbers stored for the contact, the phone prompts you with
“Which Number?” and displays a list of options. You can
select an option by saying it or by using your keypad.
Calling Nicknames
Your Contacts list incorporates a field called “Nickname.”
When you add a nickname to a contact, you can say the
contact's name or nickname when using the voice features.
For example, if you have a contact, “John Smith” stored in your
Contacts list, and you add, “Dad” to the nickname field, you
can call that contact by saying, “Call John Smith” or by saying
“Call Dad.”
Tip:
If your Contacts list contains a name that you have difficulty
using with the voice features (such as some unusual or
foreign names), you can add a nickname for that contact that
spells out the proper pronunciation of that name.
Calling Phone Numbers (Digit Dialing)
To voice dial a number that is not stored in your Contacts list:
䢇
Say “Call” followed immediately by a valid string of digits
to be dialed, for example, say “Call 555 555 5555.”
Speak naturally and clearly and remember to speak one digit
at a time—1-800 should be pronounced “One Eight Zero
Zero.”
116
Section 2H: Using Your Phone’s Voice Services
Adapting Digit Dial
After you adapt Digit Dial, your phone will be customized to
your voice. Other people will not be able to use Digit Dial on
your phone unless they reset the phone to factory defaults.
Note:
ONLY adapt Digit Dial if the system is frequently
misrecognizing your speech. You can always restore the
system to its original factory setting.
Adaptation involves recording several digit sequences to
teach the system your voice. The adaptation process takes
about three minutes.
Tips for adapting Digit Dial:
䢇
䢇
䢇
䢇
Adapt digits in a quiet place.
Make sure you wait for the beep before starting to speak.
Speak clearly, but say each digit sequence naturally.
If you make a mistake while recording a sequence of
digits, or if there is an unexpected noise that spoils the
recording, you can say or select No when the prompt asks,
“Did the recording sound OK?” You will then be prompted
to rerecord the sequence.
Section 2H: Using Your Phone’s Voice Services
117
Voice Services
Digit Dialing is speaker independent, which means that no
training or adaptation is required. Some users with heavy
accents or unusual voice characteristics may find difficulty in
achieving high accuracy with speaker-independent Digit
Dialing, so the Adapt Digits feature allows users to
dramatically improve the digit accuracy through adaptation.
Users who get acceptable digit recognition accuracy will find
no additional benefit to performing the Adapt Digit
adaptation.
To adapt Digit Dial to your voice:
1. Menu > Settings > Voice Service.
2. Select Digit Dialing and press
.
3. Select Adapt Digits and press
to begin. (The phone
displays the first digit sequence.)
4. Wait for the beep, and then repeat the digits using a
normal tone of voice. (The phone plays back your
recording and asks you if the recording sounds “OK.”)
5. If the recording sounds OK (no mistakes and no
background noises), say Yes.
6. If you need to rerecord the digits to fix any problems,
say No. (The phone then prompts you to say the digits
again.)
7. Wait for the beep, and then record the digits again.
(Repeat this step until you are satisfied with the
recording.)
8. After confirming that the recording sounds OK, repeat
the recording process with the next set of digits. (After
six sets of digits, the phone will ask you whether you
want to do more adaptation. Answer Yes.)
9. Repeat steps 6-9 for another six sets of digits. (After the
sixth set of digits, you will be halfway through the
session and the phone will ask “More Adaptation?”)
10. Select OK to continue for six more sets of digits, or press
for partial adaptation. When you are finished with
a full session, you will reach a screen that reads,
“Adaptation Complete.”
118
Section 2H: Using Your Phone’s Voice Services
Note:
It is recommended that you perform the complete
adaptation of Digit Dial at least once to achieve the
maximum benefit of this feature. If a partial adaptation is
performed, you can always return later and resume the
process from the halfway point.

Multimedia FAQs
1. Will I know if I'm receiving an incoming call while I'm
viewing or listening to an audio clip?
No. All incoming calls will roll into voicemail while you
are playing a clip. If the caller leaves a voicemail, the
voicemail icon will appear on the screen.
2. How long are the clips? Will I know the estimated time it
will take to play the clip prior to accessing it?
Once you have selected a channel, you will see a listing
of the available clips, with the clip's length appearing
after the clip's title. In general, a clip's duration will
depend on the story or content being provided, and can
be fairly short or as long as a few minutes.
3. Can I access a multimedia clip wherever I am, as long as I
have my phone?
As long as you are on the Nationwide Sprint PCS
Network, you will have access to the audio and video
clips.
Note:
Media Player
Sprint TV Service does not work while roaming off of the
Nationwide Sprint PCS Network or where service is
unavailable.
4. Are the videos that I'm viewing “live” videos?
It depends on the content provider. Some of the
channels available through Sprint TV stream live
content. Others provide media on demand with video
and audio clips that are refreshed throughout the day,
but that are not “live.”
5. After purchasing access to an Available Channel for a
monthly fee, do I receive any confirmation? That is, how do I
know it has been purchased?
The next time you access your media player's Channel
Section 2J: Using Your Phone’s Built-in Media Player
157
Listings, the purchased channel title and corresponding
number will appear in the My Channels section.
6. Why are some channels already preloaded into the My
Channels section?
Some channels, such as Previews, are offered free of
charge as a customer courtesy. These channels
automatically appear in the My Channels section of
your Channel Listings.
7. If I don't subscribe to Sprint PCS Vision Plan, am I still able to
view the multimedia clips?
Yes; for service access charges, please consult your
Sprint PCS Service Plan or visit www.sprint.com.
8. How can I easily access a channel without having to scroll
through all the channels in my Channel Listings?
Each channel will have a number to the left of it. You
can simply press this number to quickly access the clips
located within that channel.
Tip:
When entering the specific channel number, channels 01 - 09
do not require you to enter a “0.” For example, to access
channel “07,” just press the “7” key.
9. What does it mean when the video pauses and I see the
word “loading” at the bottom of the screen?
This happens when the media player is in the process of
loading the data necessary to play the clip. It typically
occurs when there is heavy traffic on the network.
10. How can I cancel service if I decide I don't want it?
To cancel your Sprint TV Service, visit www.sprint.com and
sign on to My PCS with your account number and
password. From this page you have the ability to cancel
the service and/or any Available Channels to which you
subscribe.

Section 2J: Using Your Phone’s Built-in Media Player
11. If I place my stereo headphones on and insert them into the
phone's headset jack, can I close the flip while I am playing
an audio (or video) clip without interrupting the clip?
Yes. When you insert your stereo headset into the
phone's headset jack, the phone automatically goes
into “headset mode,” allowing you to close the flip and
continue playing the clip. (Likewise, if your phone is in
“headset mode,” a phone call will not become
disconnected by closing the flip.)
12. Can I surf to a different channel while I am playing a clip?
Yes; while you are playing a clip, you can use the up and
down navigation buttons to surf to a different channel.
A small pop-up screen will appear that tells you which
channel you are watching as well as other channels you
have access to. Use the navigation buttons to scroll
through the different channels. Once you find a channel
that you want to watch, scroll to it and press
(or
simply wait approximately three seconds) and the
channel will begin loading.

Important Safety
This phone guide contains important operational and safety

read and follow the information provided in this phone guide
may result in serious bodily injury, death, or property
damage.
Section 4A: Important Safety Information
233
General Precautions
There are several simple guidelines to operating your phone properly and
Speak directly into the mouthpiece.
䢇 Avoid exposing your phone and accessories to rain or liquid spills. If
your phone does get wet, immediately turn the power off and remove
the battery.
䢇 Although your phone is quite sturdy, it is a complex piece of
equipment and can be broken. Avoid dropping, hitting, bending, or
sitting on it.
䢇 Any changes or modifications to your phone not expressly approved in
this document could void your warranty for this equipment and void
your authority to operate this equipment.
Note:
234
For the best care of your phone, only Sprint authorized
personnel should service your phone and accessories. Failure
to do so may be dangerous and void your warranty.
Section 4A: Important Safety Information
Maintaining Safe Use of and Access to
Your Phone
Do Not Rely on Your Phone for Emergency Calls
Mobile phones operate using radio signals, which cannot guarantee
connection in all conditions. Therefore you should never rely solely upon
any mobile phone for essential communication (e.g., medical
emergencies). Emergency calls may not be possible on all cellular networks
or when certain network services and/or mobile phone features are in use.
Check with your local service provider for details.
Using Your Phone While Driving
Talking on your phone while driving (or operating the phone without a
hands-free device) is prohibited in some jurisdictions. Laws vary as to
specific restrictions. Remember that safety always comes first.
Tip:
Purchase an optional hands-free accessory at your local Sprint
Store, or call the Sprint PCS Accessory Hotline® at 1-800-9742221 or by dialing #222 on your phone.
To operate your phone safely and efficiently, always follow any special
regulations in a given area. Turn your phone off in areas where use is
forbidden or when it may cause interference or danger.
Using Your Phone Near Other Electronic Devices
Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from radio frequency (RF)
signals. However, RF signals from wireless phones may affect inadequately
shielded electronic equipment.
RF signals may affect improperly installed or inadequately shielded
electronic operating systems and/or entertainment systems in motor
vehicles. Check with the manufacturer or their representative to determine
if these systems are adequately shielded from external RF signals. Also
check with the manufacturer regarding any equipment that has been
added to your vehicle.
Consult the manufacturer of any personal medical devices, such as
pacemakers and hearing aids, to determine if they are adequately shielded
from external RF signals.
Section 4A: Important Safety Information
235
Important Safety
Following Safety Guidelines
Note:
Always turn off the phone in health care facilities and request
permission before using the phone near medical equipment.
Turning Off Your Phone Before Flying
Turn off your phone before boarding any aircraft. To prevent possible
interference with aircraft systems, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration
(FAA) regulations require you to have permission from a crew member to
use your phone while the plane is on the ground. To prevent any risk of
interference, FCC regulations prohibit using your phone while the plane is
in the air.
Turning Off Your Phone in Dangerous Areas
To avoid interfering with blasting operations, turn your phone off when in
a blasting area or in other areas with signs indicating two-way radios
should be turned off. Construction crews often use remote-control RF
devices to set off explosives.
Turn your phone off when you're in any area that has a potentially
explosive atmosphere. Although it's rare, your phone and accessories could
generate sparks. Sparks can cause an explosion or fire, resulting in bodily
injury or even death. These areas are often, but not always, clearly marked.
They include:
䢇 Fueling areas such as gas stations.
䢇 Below deck on boats.
䢇 Fuel or chemical transfer or storage facilities.
䢇 Areas where the air contains chemicals or particles such as grain, dust,
or metal powders.
䢇 Any other area where you would normally be advised to turn off your
vehicle’s engine.
Note:
Never transport or store flammable gas or liquids or
explosives in the compartment of your vehicle that contains
your phone or accessories.
Restricting Children’s Access to Your Phone
Your phone is not a toy. Do not allow children to play with it as they could
hurt themselves and others, damage the phone or make calls that increase
your Sprint PCS Invoice.

Disposal of Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) Batteries
For safe disposal options of your Li-Ion batteries, contact your nearest

the disposal of batteries in household or business trash may be prohibited.
Section 4A: Important Safety Information
237
Important Safety
The guidelines listed below help you get the most out of your battery’s
performance.
䢇 Recently, there have been some public reports of wireless phone
batteries overheating, catching fire, or exploding. It appears that
many, if not all, of these reports involve counterfeit or inexpensive,
aftermarket-brand batteries with unknown or questionable
manufacturing standards. Sprint is not aware of similar problems with
Sprint PCS® phones resulting from the proper use of batteries and
accessories approved by Sprint or the manufacturer of your phone.
Use only Sprint or manufacturer-approved batteries and accessories
found at Sprint Stores or through your phone’s manufacturer, or call
1-866-343-1114 to order. They’re also available at www.sprint.com –
click the Wireless link under "Personal," and then click Accessories
under "Shop Sprint PCS Online. "Buying the right batteries and
accessories is the best way to ensure they’re genuine and safe.
䢇 In order to avoid damage, charge the battery only in temperatures that
range from 32° F to 113° F (0° C to 45° C).
䢇 Don’t use the battery charger in direct sunlight or in high humidity
areas, such as the bathroom.
䢇 Never dispose of the battery by incineration.
䢇 Keep the metal contacts on top of the battery clean.
䢇 Don’t attempt to disassemble or short-circuit the battery.
䢇 The battery may need recharging if it has not been used for a long
period of time.
䢇 It’s best to replace the battery when it no longer provides acceptable
performance. It can be recharged hundreds of times before it needs
replacing.
䢇 Don’t store the battery in high temperature areas for long periods of
time. It’s best to follow these storage rules:
䡲 Less than one month:
-4° F to 140° F (-20° C to 60° C)
䡲 More than one month:
-4° F to 113° F (-20° C to 45° C)
Radiofrequency (RF) Energy
Understanding How Your Phone Operates
Your phone is basically a radio transmitter and receiver. When it’s turned
on, it receives and transmits radio frequency (RF) signals. When you use
your phone, the system handling your call controls the power level. This
power can range from 0.006 watts to 0.2 watts in digital mode.
Knowing Radiofrequency Safety
The design of your phone complies with updated NCRP standards
described below.
In 1991-92, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and
the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) joined in updating ANSI’s
1982 standard for safety levels with respect to human exposure to RF
signals. More than 120 scientists, engineers and physicians from
universities, government health agencies and industries developed this
updated standard after reviewing the available body of research. In 1993,
the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) adopted this updated
standard in a regulation. In August 1996, the FCC adopted hybrid standard
consisting of the existing ANSI/IEEE standard and the guidelines published
by the National Council of Radiation Protection and Measurements (NCRP).
Body-Worn Operation
To maintain compliance with FCC RF exposure guidelines, if you wear a
handset on your body, use the Sprint supplied or approved carrying case,
holster or other body-worn accessory. Use of non-Sprint approved
accessories may violate FCC RF exposure guidelines.
For more information about RF exposure, visit the FCC Web site at
www.fcc.gov.
Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) for Wireless Phones
The SAR is a value that corresponds to the relative amount of RF energy
absorbed in the head of a user of a wireless handset.
The SAR value of a phone is the result of an extensive testing, measuring,
and calculation process. It does not represent how much RF the phone
emits. All phone models are tested at their highest value in strict
laboratory settings. But when in operation, the SAR of a phone can be
substantially less than the level reported to the FCC. This is because of a
variety of factors including its proximity to a base station antenna, phone
design and other factors. What is important to remember is that each
238
Section 4A: Important Safety Information
phone meets strict federal guidelines. Variations in SARs do not represent a
variation in safety.
All phones must meet the federal standard, which incorporates a
substantial margin of safety. As stated above, variations in SAR values
between different model phones do not mean variations in safety. SAR
values at or below the federal standard of 1.6 W/kg are considered safe for
use by the public.
The highest reported SAR values of the A900M are:
CDMA mode (Part 22):
Head: 0.920 W/kg; Body-worn: 0.687 W/kg
PCS mode (Part 24):
Head: 0.656 W/kg; Body-worn: 0.962 W/kg
FCC Radiofrequency Emission
This phone meets the FCC Radiofrequency Emission Guidelines.
FCC ID number: A3LSPHA900.
More information on the phone's SAR can be found from the following FCC
Web site: http://www.fcc.gov/oet/fccid.
The model number, regulatory number and serial number are located on a
nameplate inside the battery compartment. Record the serial number in
