provide optimum performance. Other chargers
may not fully charge the iDEN Li-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).
• Li-Ion batteries have a self discharge rate and
without use, lose about 1% of their charge per
day.
Prolonged charging is not recommended.

phone, you can remove the information by
removing your SIM card.
Note: Except for making emergency calls, your
phone will not function without the SIM
card.

can be used without entering a PIN.

When the SIM PIN requirement is on, you are
prompted to enter your PIN each time you power
on your phone.
Note: If a SIM PIN is required, your phone will
not function until the SIM PIN is entered,
except for making emergency calls.
1 From the main menu, select Settings >
Security > SIM PIN.
2 Select On or Off.

Antenna
The retractable antenna on your i670 phone is
designed to be extended during calls and is
essential to attain the hearing aid compatibility
rating on applicable models.
To extend the antenna, pull gently on the rounded
tip until the antenna is fully extended and clicks into
position.
When finished with a call, retract the antenna by
pushing gently on the rounded tip until the antenna
clicks into place.
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.

Bringing Your Phone Number From
Another Carrier
If you are bringing your phone number from
another carrier, your new phone will be active as
soon as you receive it. Nextel will provide you with
a temporary phone number so that you can begin
using your phone immediately. Once the number
you have brought to Nextel is activated, your
temporary phone number will be deactivated and
service with your previous carrier will be cancelled
automatically. You will receive a text message on
your Nextel phone letting you know that activation
is complete. Simply turn your phone off and back
on again to complete activation.
Nextel® Customer Service
Here is additional information you need to be
aware of until the number you have brought to
Nextel is active on the Nextel® National Network:
Nextel® Voicemail
We suggest you set up your voicemail box after the
number you brought to Nextel is active on your
Nextel phone and your temporary phone number is
deactivated. If you set up your voicemail box prior
to this, all messages and all settings (including
your greeting and password) will be lost when the
number you have brought to Nextel becomes
active.
Text Messaging
During the activation process, it is possible that text
messages may not be properly routed to your
Nextel phone.
911 Calls
Nextel continues to make efforts to ensure that all
911 calls are minimally impacted by this process. If
you make a call to 911 from your temporary phone
number and the call fails, the 911 emergency
response center will not be able to call you back on
your Nextel phone if in the meantime your Nextel
phone has been programmed with your permanent
phone number. As with any wireless 911 call, if
your call is disconnected before location and
details have been provided, be sure to call 911
again and advise that you were disconnected.
Go to www.sprint.com/bringyournumber for more
details.

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. 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.
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
129
GPS Enabled
• 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 132.
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
130
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.
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
Viewing Your Approximate Location
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 129), 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 132
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
• 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.
131
GPS Enabled
• 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 Rfrsh.
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.
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.
132
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
133
GPS 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 your
service provider, 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.
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

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 service number.

Setting Privacy Options
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” for more information.)
3 Select the privacy option you want:

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.
• 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

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 data cable and set your phone
to transmit data (see “Getting Started” on page
137). Your phone then provides your approximate
location to the device running the map software,
136
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.
See “Enhancing GPS Performance” on page 132
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.
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.
The map software running on your laptop or other
device must support NMEA 3.0.

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.

Nextel® Terms and
Conditions of Service
Subscriber Agreement: General Terms and
Conditions of Service
Para solicitar esta literatura en español, por favor
contactar a 1-800-777-4681.
Please note these terms may not be the most
current version. A current version of the terms is
available at our Web site or upon request.
Basic Definitions
In this document: (1) "we," "us," "our" mean the
Nextel local operating affiliate authorized to provide
service in the geographic region of the customer's
billing address; (2) "you," "your," "customer," and
"user" mean an account holder or user with us; (3)
"Device" means any phone, device, accessory or
other product we sell to you or that is active on
your account with us; and (4) "Service" means our
offers, rate plans, options, wireless services or
Devices on your account with us.
162
The Subscriber Agreement
The Subscriber Agreement ("Agreement") is a
contract under which we provide and you accept
our Services. In addition to these Terms and
Conditions of Service ("Ts&Cs"), there are several
parts to the Agreement, including, but not limited
to, the detailed plan or other information on
Services we provide or refer you to during the
sales transaction, and any confirmation materials
we may provide you. It is important that you
carefully read all of the terms of the Agreement.
Services Covered By These Ts&Cs &
Additional Terms
These Ts&Cs apply to standard wireless Services
and any other Service we offer you that references
these Ts&Cs. Different terms will apply to most
business accounts. Additional terms will apply
when you use certain Services, typically those you
can access online (for example, picture/video
Services, online forums, etc.). Additional terms will
also apply if you activate Services as part of a
bundle with another company's services (for
example, cable services, home phone services,
etc.). The additional terms for bundled Services
may either modify or replace certain provisions in
these Ts&Cs, including terms relating to activation,
invoicing/payment, and disputing charges. Also, a
different dispute resolution provision may apply to
services provided by another company (the dispute
resolution provisions in this Agreement still apply to
our Services). You will be provided details on any
additional terms with your selection of any bundled
Service.
Our Policies
Services are subject to our business policies,
practices and procedures ("Policies"), including,
but not limited to, our Privacy Policy and
Acceptable Use Policy and Visitor Agreement both available at our Web site. You agree to all of
our Policies when you use our Services. Our
Policies are subject to change at anytime with or
without notice.
When You Accept The Agreement
You must have the legal capacity to accept the
Agreement. You accept the Agreement when you
do any of the following: (a) sign a contract with us
on paper or electronically; (b) accept Agreement
through an oral or electronic statement; (c) attempt
to or in any way use the Services; (d) pay for the
Services; or (e) open any package or start any
program that says you are accepting the
Agreement when doing so. If you don't want to
accept the Agreement, don't do any of these
things.
Term Commitments & Early Termination Fees
Many of the Services (for example, rate plans and
Device discounts) that we offer require you to
maintain certain Services with us for a minimum
term, usually 1 or 2 years ("Term Commitment").
You will be charged a fee ("Early Termination
Fee") for each line of Service that you terminate
early (i.e., prior to satisfying the Term
Commitment) or for each line of Service that we
terminate early for good reason (for example,
violating the payment or other terms of the
Agreement). Early Termination Fees are a part of
our rates. Your exact Term Commitment and Early
Termination Fee may vary based on the Services
you select and will be disclosed to you during the
sales transaction. Carefully review any Term
Commitment and Early Termination Fee
requirements prior to selecting Services. After
you have satisfied your Term Commitment, your
Services continue on a month-to-month basis
without any Early Termination Fee, unless you
agree to extend your Term Commitment or agree
to a new Term Commitment - for example, by
accepting a new rate plan or upgrading your
Device. As explained directly below, there are
instances when you will not be responsible for an
Early Termination Fee for terminating Services
early.
163
Nextel® Terms and Conditions of Service
When You Don't Have To Pay An Early
Termination Fee
You aren't responsible for paying an Early
Termination Fee when terminating Services: (a)
provided on a month-to-month basis; (b) consistent
with our published trial period return policy; or (c) in
response to a materially adverse change we make
to the Agreement as described directly below.
Our Right To Change The Agreement & Your
Related Rights
We may change any part of the Agreement at
any time, including, but not limited to, rates,
charges, how we calculate charges, or your
terms of Service. We will provide you notice of
material changes, and may provide you notice
of non-material changes, in a manner
consistent with this Agreement (see "Providing
Notice Under This Agreement" paragraph).
Except as provided below, if a change we make
to the Agreement is material and has a material
adverse effect on you, you may terminate each
line of Service materially affected without
incurring an Early Termination Fee only if you:
(a) call us within 30 days after the effective date
of the change; and (b) specifically advise us
that you wish to cancel Services because of a
material change to the Agreement that we have
164
made. If you do not cancel Service within 30 days
of the change, an Early Termination Fee will apply
if you terminate Services before the end of any
applicable Term Commitment.
Our Right To Suspend Or Terminate Services
We can, without notice, suspend or terminate
any Service at any time for any reason,
including, but not limited to: (a) late payment; (b)
exceeding an Account Spending Limit ("ASL"); (c)
harassing/threatening our employees or agents;
(d) providing false information; (e) interfering with
our operations; (f) using/suspicion of using
Services in any manner restricted by or
inconsistent with the Agreement; (g) breaching the
Agreement, including our Policies; (h) providing
false, inaccurate, dated or unverifiable
identification or credit information, or becoming
insolvent or bankrupt; (i) modifying a Device from
its manufacturer specifications; or (j) if we believe
the action protects our interests, any customer's
interests or our network.
Your Ability To Change Services & When
Changes Are Effective
You typically can change Services upon request. In
some instances, changes may be conditioned on
payment of an Early Termination Fee or certain
other charges, or they may require you to accept a
new Term Commitment. Changes to Services are
usually effective at the start of your next full
invoicing cycle. If the changes take place sooner,
your invoice may reflect pro-rated charges for your
old and new Services.
Your Right To Terminate Services
You can terminate Services at any time by calling
us and requesting that we deactivate all Services.
You're responsible for all charges billed or incurred
prior to deactivation. If Services are terminated
before the end of your invoicing cycle, we won't
prorate charges to the date of termination and you
won't receive a credit or refund for any unused
Services. Except as provided above, you must
also pay us an Early Termination Fee for each
line of Service that you terminate early.
Credit Checks & Credit Information
We agree to provide you Services on the condition
you have and maintain satisfactory credit
according to our standards and policies. You agree
to provide information we may request or complete
any applications we may provide you to facilitate
our review. We rely on the credit information you
furnish, credit bureau reports or other data
available from commercial credit reference
services, and other information (such as payment
history with us) to determine whether to provide or
continue to provide you Services. The Services we
offer you can vary based on your credit history. We
may at any time, based on your credit history,
withdraw or change Services, or place limits or
conditions on the use of our Services. You agree to
provide us updated credit information upon
request. We may provide your payment history and
other account billing/charge information to any
credit reporting agency or industry clearinghouse.
Account Spending Limits ("ASL")
An ASL is a temporary or permanent limit (typically
based on credit history, payment history, or to
prevent fraud) we place on the amount of unpaid
charges you can accumulate on your account,
regardless of when payment on those charges is
due. We reserve the right to determine which
charges count towards an ASL. If you have an
ASL, we may suspend your Services without prior
notice if your account balance reaches the ASL,
even if your account is not past due. We may
impose or increase an ASL at any time with notice.
An ASL is for our benefit only and should not be
relied on by you to manage usage.
Deposits & Returning Deposits
We may at any time require a deposit, as a
guarantee of payment, for you to establish or
maintain Service ("Deposit"). By providing us a
Deposit, you grant us a security interest for all
current or future amounts owed to us. We may
change the Deposit at any time with notice. You
165
Nextel® Terms and Conditions of Service
can't use a Deposit to make or delay payments.
The Deposit, the length of time we hold the
Deposit, and changes to the Deposit are
determined based on your credit history, payment
history and other factors. Unless prohibited by law,
we may mix Deposits with our other funds and it
won't earn interest and we reserve the right to
return the Deposit as a credit on your invoice at
anytime. If your Services are terminated for any
reason, we may keep and apply your Deposit to
any outstanding charges. We'll send any remaining
portion of Deposit to your last known address
within 90 days after your final invoice - if it is
returned to us, we will forward it on to the
appropriate state authorities to the extent required
by law.
Restrictions On Using Services
You can't use our Services: (a) to transmit
content/messages that are, or in any manner that
is, illegal, fraudulent, threatening, abusive,
defamatory, or obscene; (b) in a way that could
cause damage or adversely affect our customers,
reputation, network, property or Services; (c) to
communicate any unsolicited commercial voice,
text, SMS, or other message; (d) to infringe on the
copyright of another, or upload or transmit any
"virus", "worm", or malicious code; or (e) in any
way prohibited by the terms of our Services, the
Agreement or our Policies.
166
Your Device, Number & E-mail Address; Caller
ID
We don't manufacture any Device we might sell to
you or that is associated with our Services, and we
aren't responsible for any defects, acts or
omissions of the manufacturer. The only
warranties on your Device are the limited
warranties given to you by the manufacturer
directly or that we pass through. Your Device is
designed exclusively for use on our network and in
other coverage areas we make available to you. It
will not accept wireless service from another
carrier. Except for any legal right you may have to
port/transfer your phone number to another carrier,
you have no and cannot gain any (for example,
through publication, use, etc.) proprietary,
ownership or other rights to any phone number,
identification number, e-mail address or other
identifier we assign to you, your Device or your
account. We'll notify you if we decide to change or
reassign them.
Porting/Transferring Phone Numbers
We don't guarantee that number transfers to or
from us will be successful. If you authorize another
carrier to transfer a number away from us, that is
considered a request by you to us to terminate all
of the Services associated with that number.
You're responsible for all charges billed or
incurred prior to deactivation and for any
applicable Early Termination Fees.
Coverage; Where Your Device Will Work
Our coverage maps are available at our stores and
at our Web site. The specific network coverage you
get will depend on the radio transmissions your
Device can pick up and Services you've chosen.
Our coverage maps provide high level
estimates of our coverage areas when using
Services outdoors under optimal conditions.
Coverage isn't available everywhere.
Estimating wireless coverage and signal
strength is not an exact science. There are
gaps in coverage within our estimated
coverage areas that, along with other factors
both within and beyond our control (network
problems, software, signal strength, your
Device, structures, buildings, weather,
geography, topography, etc.), may result in
dropped and blocked connections, slower data
speeds, or otherwise impact the quality of
Service. Services that rely on location
information, such as E911 and GPS navigation,
depend on your Device's ability to acquire
satellite signals (typically not available
indoors) and network coverage.
Roaming
"Roaming" typically refers to coverage on another
carrier's network that we make available to you
based on our agreements with other carriers.
These agreements may change from time to time
and roaming coverage is subject to change. Your
ability to receive roaming coverage depends on the
radio transmissions your Device can pick up. You
can pick up roaming coverage both within and
outside our network coverage areas. Your Device
will generally indicate when you're roaming.
Depending on your Services, separate charges or
limits on the amount of minutes used while roaming
may apply. Certain Services may not be available
or work the same when roaming (including data
Services, voicemail, call waiting, etc.).
About Data Services & Content
Our data Services and your Device may allow you
to access the internet, text, pictures, video, games,
graphics, music, email, sound and other materials
("Data Content") or send Data Content elsewhere.
Some Data Content is available from us or our
vendors, while other Data Content can be
accessed from others (third party Web sites,
games, ringers, etc.). We make absolutely no
guarantees about the Data Content you access on
your Device. Data Content may be: (1)
unsuitable for children/minors; (2) unreliable or
inaccurate; or (3) offensive, indecent or
167
Nextel® Terms and Conditions of Service
objectionable. You're solely responsible for
evaluating the Data Content accessed by you
or anyone on your account. We strongly
recommend you monitor data usage by
children/minors. Data Content from third parties
may also harm your Device or its software. To
protect our network, Services, or for other reasons,
we may place restrictions on accessing certain
Data Content (such as certain Web sites,
applications, etc.), impose separate charges, limit
throughput or the amount of data you can transfer,
or otherwise limit or terminate Services. If we
provide you storage for Data Content you have
purchased, we may delete the Data Content with
notice or place restrictions/limits on the use of
storage areas. You may not be able to make or
receive voice calls while using data Services.
Services include unlimited web or data access, you
also can't use your Device as a modem for
computers or other equipment, unless we identify
the Service or Device you have selected as
specifically intended for that purpose (for example,
with "phone as modem" plans, connection cards,
wireless routers, etc.).
Specific Terms & Restrictions On Using Data
Services
Account & Service Charges; Pro-rating;
Unused Minutes
In addition to the rules for using all of our other
Services, unless specifically authorized by us, you
can't use our data Services: (1) to stream movies,
music, videos or any other Data Content; (2) with
server devices or host computer applications, or
other systems that drive continuous heavy traffic or
data sessions; (3) for voice over IP; (4) as a
substitute or backup for private lines or frame relay
connections; or (5) in any way that adversely
impacts our network or Service levels. If your
You are responsible for all charges associated
with your account and the Services on your
account, no matter who uses the Services.
Charges include, but are not limited to, the monthly
recurring charges, usage charges, taxes,
surcharges and fees associated with your
Services. These charges are described or referred
to during the sales transaction, in our marketing
materials, and in confirmation materials we may
send to you.
168
Activation & Miscellaneous Charges
Based on our Policies, we may charge activation,
prepayment, reactivation, program or other fees to
establish or maintain Services. Certain
transactions may also be subject to a charge (for
example, convenience payment, changing phone
numbers, handset upgrades, etc.). You will be
provided notice of these types of fees before we
complete the requested transaction.
How We Calculate Your Charges For Billing
Purposes
Regular Voice Calls: We round up partial minutes
of use to the next full minute. Time starts when you
press "Talk" or your Device connects to the
network and stops when you press "End" or the
network connection otherwise breaks. You're
charged for all calls that connect, even to
answering machines. You won't be charged for
unanswered calls or if you get a busy signal. For
incoming calls answered, you're charged from the
time shortly before the Device starts ringing until
you press END or the network connection
otherwise breaks. If charges vary depending on the
time of day that you place or receive calls (e.g.,
Nights and Weekend plans), you're charged for the
entire call based on the rate that applies to the time
period in which the call starts.
Nextel Walkie-Talkie Charges: Charges for
walkie-talkie calls are billed to the person who
starts the call and calculated by multiplying the
duration of the call by the applicable rate and
number of participants. You're charged at least 6
seconds of airtime for each call you start;
subsequent communications in the same call are
rounded up to and billed to the next second. Time
begins when you press any button to start a
walkie-talkie call and ends approximately 6
seconds after completion of a communication to
which no participant responds - subsequent
walkie-talkie communications are considered new
calls. Depending on your plan, nationwide,
international or group walkie-talkie calls may use
the local walkie-talkie minutes in your plan and
result in additional charges. Responses to call alert
transmissions are treated as new walkie-talkie
transmissions even when responding within 6
seconds of receiving the alert.
Data Usage: Unless we specifically tell you
otherwise, data usage is measured in bytes,
kilobytes and megabytes - not in minutes/time.
1024 bytes equals 1 kilobyte ("KB"), and 1024 KB
equals 1 megabyte. Bytes are rounded up to
kilobytes, so you will be charged at least 1 KB for
each data usage session ("data session").
Rounding occurs at the end of each data session,
and sometimes during a data session. Depending
on your data Services, usage may be charged
against an allowance or on a fixed price per KB. If
you are charged on a fixed price per KB, any
fractional cents will be rounded up to the next cent.
You are charged for all data directed to your
Device's internet address, including data sessions
you did not initiate and for incomplete transfers. As
long as your Device is connected to our data
network, you may incur data charges. Examples of
data you will be charged for includes the size of a
requested file or Data Content (game, ringer, etc.),
web page graphics (logos, pictures, banners,
169
Nextel® Terms and Conditions of Service
advertisement, etc.), additional data used in
accessing, transporting and routing the file on our
network, data from partial or interrupted
downloads, re-sent data, and data associated with
unsuccessful attempts to reach Web sites or use
applications. These data charges are in addition to
any charges for the Data Content itself (game,
ringer, etc.). Data used and charged to you will
vary widely, even between identical actions or data
sessions. Estimates of data usage - for example,
the size of downloadable files - are not reliable
predictors of actual usage. Your bill won't
separately list the number of KB attributed to a
specific action/data session.
Your Bill
Your bill provides you notice of your charges. It
reflects monthly recurring charges (usually billed
one bill cycle in advance) and usage/transaction
specific charges (usually billed in the bill cycle in
which they're incurred). Some usage charges,
such as those that depend on usage information
from a third party, may be billed in subsequent bill
cycles and result in higher than expected charges
for that month. Bill cycles and dates may change
from time to time. Your bill may also include
other important notices (for example, changes
to this Agreement, to your Service, legal
notices, etc.). Your paper bill may not include
170
individual call detail. Your call detail is available
online. Paper bills with call detail may be subject to
an additional charge. If you choose internet billing,
you will not receive paper bills.
Your Payments; Late Fees
Payment is due in full as stated on your bill. If we
do not receive payment in full by the date specified
on your bill, a late payment charge, which may be
charged at the highest rate permissible by law,
may be applied to the total unpaid balance. We
may also charge you any costs we pay to a
collection agency to collect unpaid balances from
you. If we bill you for amounts on behalf of a third
party, payments received are first applied to our
charges. You may be charged additional fees for
certain methods of payment. We may charge you,
up to the highest amount permitted by law, for
returned checks or other payments paid by you
and denied for any reason by a financial institution.
Acceptance of payments (even if marked "paid in
full") does not waive our right to collect all amounts
that you owe us. We may restrict your payment
methods to cashier's check, money order, or other
similar secure form of payment at any time for
good reason.
Taxes & Government Fees
You agree to pay all federal, state and local taxes,
fees and other assessments that we're required by
law to collect on the Services we provide you and
remit to the government. These charges may
change from time to time without advance notice. If
you're claiming any tax exemption, you must
provide us with a valid exemption certificate. Tax
exemptions generally won't be applied
retroactively.
Surcharges
You agree to pay the surcharges, fees and other
charges that we assess to recoup our government
costs or costs of complying with certain
government programs ("Surcharges").
Surcharges aren't taxes or government
mandated charges; they're charges we choose
to collect from you. Surcharges are subject to
change, sometimes on a monthly or quarterly
basis. Examples of Surcharges include, but are
not limited to: Universal Service Fund, E911,
Federal Programs Cost Recovery, Federal
Wireless Number Pooling and Portability, and
gross receipts charges. We will make efforts to
provide you notice of any changes to Surcharges in
a manner consistent with this Agreement (see
"Providing Notice Under This Agreement"
paragraph). However, since most Surcharges are
based on amounts set by the government or based
on government formulas, it will not always be
possible to provide advance notice of new
Surcharges or changes in the amount of existing
Surcharges. Information on Surcharges is provided
during the sales transaction and is available at our
Web site.
Disputing Charges - You Must Still Pay
Undisputed Charges
Any dispute to a charge on your bill must be made
within 60 days of the date of the bill that initially
contained the charge. Disputes can only be made
by calling or writing us as directed on your invoice
or elsewhere. You accept all charges not properly
disputed within the above time period - undisputed
charges must still be paid as stated on your bill.
Protecting Our Network & Services
We can take any action to: (1) protect our network,
our rights and interests, or the rights of others; or
(2) optimize or improve the overall use of our
network and Services. Some of these actions may
interrupt or prevent legitimate communications and
usage - for example, message filtering/blocking
software to prevent SPAM or viruses, limiting
throughput, limiting access to certain Web sites,
applications or other Data Content, etc. For
171
Nextel® Terms and Conditions of Service
additional information on what we do to protect our
customers, network, Services and equipment, see
our Acceptable Use Policy and Visitor Agreement
at our Web site.
Your Privacy
You agree to the terms of our Privacy Policy,
available at our Web site, when you use our
Services. This policy may change from time to
time, so review this policy with regularity and care.
Among other things, the policy includes important
information on what information we collect about
you, how we use that information, and with whom
we share that information (for example, to provide
you certain Services, to protect our rights and
interests, to respond to legal process, to facilitate a
merger, etc.). Also, to ensure the quality of our
Services and for other lawful purposes, we may
also monitor or record calls between us (for
example, your conversations with our customer
service or sales departments). If you do not agree
with the terms of our Privacy Policy, do not
purchase or use our Services.
Location Based Services
Our network generally knows the location of your
Device when it is outdoors and turned on. By using
various technologies to locate your Device, we can
provide enhanced emergency 911 services, and
optional location-sensitive services provided by us
172
or a third party. Environmental factors (such as
structures, buildings, weather, geography,
landscape, and topography) can significantly
impact the ability to access your Device's location
information and use of location-sensitive services.
The terms and conditions of any location-sensitive
service that you purchase from us may provide
more information about how location information is
used and disclosed. Use of some of
location-sensitive services may require network
coverage. If any Device on your account uses a
location-sensitive service, you (the
accountholder) must clearly and regularly
notify the actual user of your Device that their
location may be tracked or discovered. For
additional information on location-sensitive
services, see our Privacy Policy at our Web site.
911 Or Other Emergency Calls
Public Safety Officials advise that when making
911 or other emergency calls, you should
always be prepared to provide your location
information. Unlike traditional wireline phones,
depending on a number of factors (e.g., whether
your Device is GPS enabled, where you are,
whether local emergency service providers have
upgraded their equipment, etc.), 911 operators
may not know your phone number, your location or
the location of your Device. In certain
circumstances, an emergency call may be routed
to a state patrol dispatcher or alternative location
set by local emergency service providers.
Enhanced 911 service ("E911"), where enabled by
local emergency authorities, uses GPS technology
to provide location information. Even when
available, however, E911 does not always provide
accurate location information. If your Device is
indoors or for some other reason cannot acquire a
satellite signal, you may not be located. Some
Devices have a safety feature that prevents use of
the keypad after dialing 911 - you should follow
voice prompts when interacting with emergency
service providers employing IVR systems to screen
calls.
If Your Device Is Lost or Stolen
Call us immediately if your Device is lost or stolen
because you may be responsible for usage
charges before you notify us of the alleged loss or
theft. You agree to cooperate if we choose to
investigate the matter (provide facts, sworn
statements, etc.). We may not waive any Early
Termination Fees if you choose to terminate
Services as a result of loss or theft of your Device.

DISPUTE RESOLUTION
We Agree To First Contact Each Other With Any
Disputes
We each agree to first contact each other with any
disputes and provide a written description of the
problem, all relevant documents/information and
the proposed resolution. You agree to contact us
with disputes by calling or writing us as instructed
on your invoice. We will contact you by letter to
your billing address or on your Device.
Instead Of Suing In Court, We Each Agree To
Arbitrate Disputes
We each agree to finally settle all disputes (as
defined and subject to any specific exceptions
below) only by arbitration. In arbitration, there's no
judge or jury and review is limited. However, just as
a court would, the arbitrator must honor the terms
and limitations in the Agreement and can award
the same damages and relief, including any
attorney's fees authorized by law. The arbitrator's
decision and award is final and binding, with some
exceptions under the Federal Arbitration Act
("FAA"), and judgment on the award may be
entered in any court with jurisdiction. We each also
agree as follows:
1 "Disputes" are any claims or controversies
against each other related in any way to our
Services or the Agreement, INCLUDING, but
not limited to, coverage, Devices, privacy, or
advertising, even if it arises after Services
have terminated - this includes claims you bring
against our employees, agents, affiliates or other
representatives, or that we bring against you.
2 If either of us wants to arbitrate a dispute, we
agree to send written notice to the other
providing a description of the dispute, previous
efforts to resolve the dispute, all supporting
documents/information, and the proposed
resolution. Notice to you will be sent to your
billing address and notice to us will be sent to:
General Counsel; Arbitration Office; 2001
Edmund Halley Drive VARESP0513-502;
Reston, Virginia 20191. We agree to make
attempts to resolve the dispute. If we cannot
resolve the dispute within forty-five (45) days of
receipt of the notice to arbitrate, then we may
submit the dispute to formal arbitration.
3 The FAA applies to this Agreement and
arbitration provision. We each agree the FAA's
provisions, not state law, govern all questions of
whether a dispute is subject to arbitration.
4 The arbitration will be administered by the
International Institute for Conflict Prevention and
Resolution ("CPR") under its arbitration rules. If
any of the CPR's rules conflict with the terms of
the Agreement, the terms of the Agreement
apply. You can obtain procedures, rules, and fee
information from the CPR at 1-212-949-6490 or
www.cpradr.org.
5 Unless we each agree otherwise, the Arbitration
will be conducted by a single neutral arbitrator
and will take place in the county of your last
billing address. The federal or state law that
applies to the Agreement will also apply during
the arbitration.
6 We each agree not to pursue arbitration on a
classwide basis. We each agree that any
arbitration will be solely between you and us
(not brought on behalf of or together with
another individual's claim). If for any reason
this restriction is found unenforceable, then
our agreement to arbitrate doesn't apply.
7 We each are responsible for our respective
costs relating to counsel, experts, and
witnesses, as well as any other costs relating to
the arbitration. However, we will cover any
arbitration administrative or filing fees above: (a)
$25 if you are seeking less than $1,000 from us;
or (b) the equivalent court filing fees for a court
action in the appropriate jurisdiction if you are
seeking $1,000 or more from us.
175
Nextel® Terms and Conditions of Service
Exceptions To Our Agreement To Arbitrate
Disputes
Either of us may bring qualifying claims in small
claims court. In addition, this arbitration provision
does not prevent you from filing your dispute with
any federal, state or local government agency that
can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your
behalf.
No Class Actions
TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW, WE EACH
WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO PURSUE DISPUTES ON
A CLASSWIDE BASIS; THAT IS, TO EITHER
JOIN A CLAIM WITH THE CLAIM OF ANY
OTHER PERSON OR ENTITY, OR ASSERT A
CLAIM IN A REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY ON
BEHALF OF ANYONE ELSE IN ANY LAWSUIT,
ARBITRATION OR OTHER PROCEEDING.
No Trial By Jury
TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW, WE EACH
WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY
LAWSUIT, ARBITRATION OR OTHER
PROCEEDING.
Indemnification
You agree to indemnify, defend and hold us
harmless from any claims arising out of your
actions, including, but not limited to, failing to
provide appropriate notices regarding
176
location-sensitive services (see "Location Based
Services" paragraph), or violating this Agreement,
any applicable law or regulation or the rights of any
third party.
Providing Notice To Each Other Under The
Agreement
Except as the Agreement specifically provides
otherwise, you must provide us notice by calling or
writing us as instructed on your invoice. We will
provide you notice in your bill, correspondence to
your last known billing address, to any fax number
or e-mail address you've provided us, by calling
you on your home phone or Device, by voice
message on your Device or home phone, or by text
message on your Device.
Other Important Terms
Subject to federal law or unless the Agreement
specifically provides otherwise, this Agreement is
governed solely by the laws of the state
encompassing the area code assigned to your
Device, without regard to the conflicts of law rules
of that state. If either of us waives or doesn't
enforce a requirement under this Agreement in an
instance, we don't waive our right to later enforce
that requirement. Except as the Agreement
specifically provides otherwise, if any part of the
Agreement is held invalid or unenforceable, the
rest of this Agreement remains in full force and
effect. This Agreement isn't for the benefit of any
3rd party except our corporate parents, affiliates,
subsidiaries, agents, and predecessors and
successors in interest. You can't assign the
Agreement or any of your rights or duties under it.
We can assign the Agreement. The Agreement
and the documents it incorporates make up the
entire agreement between us and replaces all prior
written or spoken agreements - you can't rely on
any contradictory documents or statements by
sales or service representatives. The rights,
obligations and commitments in the Agreement
that, by their nature, would logically continue
beyond the termination of Services (including, but
not limited to, those relating to billing, payment,
911, dispute resolution, no class action, no jury
trial), survive termination of Services.

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):
178
• 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
Walkie-Talkie (DC) button. To receive calls,
release the Walkie-Talkie 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)
179
Safety and General Information
ALL MODELS WITH FCC ID AZ489FT5844 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
180
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 1.05 W/kg and when tested on the body, as
described in this user guide, is 1.15 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
AZ489FT5844.
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.

Electromagnetic Interference/Compatibility
Antenna Care
Facilities
Use only the supplied or an approved
replacement antenna. Unauthorized antennas,
modifications, or attachments could damage the
radio product and may violate FCC regulations.
To avoid electromagnetic interference and/or
compatibility conflicts, turn off your radio product in
any facility where posted notices instruct you to do
so. Hospitals or health care facilities may be using
equipment that is sensitive to external RF energy.
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.
Approved Accessories
For a list of approved Motorola accessories call
1-800-453-0920, or visit our Web site at
www.motorola.com/iden.
Electromagnetic
Interference/Compatibility
Note: Nearly every electronic device is
susceptible to electromagnetic
interference (EMI) if inadequately
shielded, designed or otherwise
configured for electromagnetic
compatibility.
Aircraft
When instructed to do so, turn off your radio
product when on board an aircraft. Any use of a
radio product must be in accordance with
applicable regulations per airline crew instructions.
Implantable Medical Devices
A minimum separation of six (6) inches should be
maintained between a handheld wireless phone
and an implantable medical device, such as a
pacemaker or implantable cardioverter defibrillator,
to avoid potential interference with the device.
Persons who have such devices:
• Should ALWAYS keep the phone more than six
(6) inches from their implantable medical device
when the phone is turned ON;
• Should not carry the phone in a breast pocket;
• Should use the ear opposite the implantable
medical device to minimize the potential for
interference;
181
Safety and General Information
• Should turn the phone OFF inmediately if there
is any reason to suspect that the interference is
taking place.
• Should read and follow the directions from the
manufacturer of the implantable medical device.
If you have any questions about using your
wireless phone with such a device, consult your
health care provider.
For more information, see www.fcc.cellphones.gov
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
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
182
Operational Cautions
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.
For Phones With Music Players
Listening to music at high volumes over extended
periods of time may be harmful to a user's hearing.
User should take precautions to minimize this risk
by moderating volume levels. If you experience
ringing or other hearing-related discomfort, lower
volume or discontinue use.
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.
Cleaning and Drying Considerations
Using a leather carry case may help protect the
surfaces and help prevent liquids (e.g., rain) from
entering into the interior of the radio product. This
product is not water proof, and exposing the unit to
liquids may result in permanent damage to the unit.
If your radio product interior gets wet, then do not
try to accelerate drying with the use of an oven or a
dryer as this will damage the radio product and
void the warranty. Instead, do the following:
1 Immediately power off the radio product.
2 Remove Battery and SIM card (if so equipped)
from radio product.
3 Shake excess liquid from radio product.
4 Place the radio product and battery in an area
that is at room temperature and has good air
flow.
5 Let the radio product, battery, and SIM card dry
for 72 hours before reconnecting the battery
and/or powering on the radio product.
183
Safety and General Information

rain, or snow as they are designed for indoor or
in-vehicle use only.
!
Warning: To reduce the risk of injury,
charge only the rechargeable
batteries described in “Battery” on
page 4. Other types of batteries may
burst, causing personal injury and
damage.
• 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.
Accessory Safety Information
• 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.
• To reduce risk of electric shock, unplug any
battery charger from the outlet before
attempting any maintenance or cleaning.
For optimum charging performance, turn off the
radio product while charging it in any battery
charger.

Hearing Aid Compatibility
Hearing Aid
Compatibility
A number of Sprint Nextel phones have been
tested for hearing aid compatibility. When some
wireless phones are used with certain hearing aids,
users may detect a noise which can interfere with
the effectiveness of the hearing aid.
Some hearing aids are more “immune” than others
to this interference noise, and phones can also
vary in the amount of interference noise they may
generate. ANSI standard C63.19 was developed to
provide a standardized means of measuring both
mobile phone and hearing aids to determine
usability rating categories for both.
Ratings have been developed for mobile phones to
assist hearing aid users find phones that may be
compatible with their hearing aid. Not all phones
have been rated for compatibility with hearing aids.
Phones that have been rated have a label with the
rating(s) located on the box, and at
www.motorola.com/iden.
These ratings are not guarantees of compatibility.
Results will vary depending on the user's hearing
aid and individual type and degree of hearing loss.
If a hearing aid is particularly vulnerable to
interference, even a phone with a higher rating
186
may still cause unacceptable noise levels in the
hearing aid Trying out the phone with your hearing
aid is the best way to evaluate it for your personal
needs.
“M” Rating: Phones rated M3 or M4 meet FCC
requirements for hearing aid compatibility and are
likely to generate less interference to hearing aids
than unrated phones. (M4 is the “better” or higher
of the two ratings.) On those models with an
extendable antenna, this rating is determined only
with the antenna extended.
“T” Rating: Phones rated T3 or T4 meet FCC
requirements and are likely to be more usable with
a hearing aid's telecoil (“T Switch” or “Telephone
Switch”) than unrated phones. (T4 is the “better” or
higher of the two ratings.) On those models with a
telecoil mode setting, this rating is determined only
with the phone so set. For setting instructions, see
“Features for the Hearing Impaired” in the section
entitled “Advanced Calling Features”. Note that not
all hearing aids have telecoils in them.
Hearing aids may also be measured for immunity
to interference from wireless phones and may have
ratings similar to wireless phones. Ask your
hearing healthcare professional for the rating of
your hearing aid. Add the rating of your hearing aid
and your phone to determine the estimated
usability:
• Any combined rating equal to or greater than six
offers excellent use.
• Any combined rating equal to five is considered
normal use.
• Any combined rating equal to four is considered
usable.
Thus, if you use an M3 phone with a M3 hearing
aid you will have a combined rating of six for
“excellent use.” This methodology applies equally
for T ratings.
Should you experience interference or find the
quality of service unsatisfactory after purchasing
your phone, promptly return it to the store within 30
days of purchase. With the Sprint 30-day Risk-Free
Guarantee, you may return the phone within 30
days of purchase for a full refund.
