First Things First
Read this before you do anything else:
Determine if your phone is pre-activated:
If you received your Sprint PCS PhoneTM in the mail or
purchased it at a Sprint PCS Center, your phone should
already be activated and simply needs to be unlocked.
See “How to Unlock Your Phone.”
How to activate your phone:
There are two ways to activate your phone.
1. The fastest way is to call from your new Sprint PCS
Phone:
• Fully charge your battery.
• Turn on your Sprint PCS Phone and verify that you
are in a Sprint PCS Service area (no
or
is
displayed, which would indicate roaming)
• Press
,
,
. You will be connected
to a Sprint PCS Customer Care Advocate who will
guide you through the activation process. (In Southern
California, call 1-888-PCS-6699 from any phone other
than your Sprint PCS Phone™.)
2. Another option is to call Sprint PCS Customer Care from
any phone other than your new Sprint PCS Phone. Call
us toll-free at 1-888-715-4588. (In Southern California,
call 1-888-PCS-6699.)
What you should know before you call:
The call typically takes about 30 minutes, but may take longer
at peak times. Your Sprint PCS Phone will be ready for use
approximately one to three hours after this call is complete.
What you should have handy:
• Your new Sprint PCS PhoneTM
• The original packaging for your new phone
• Your billing address
• Your Social Security number or Tax ID number
• Your driver’s license number
• Pen and paper to write down your new
Sprint PCS Phone number
During this call, a Sprint PCS Customer Care Advocate will
collect your information and help you select your Sprint PCS
Service Plan. Once you’ve made all your selections, they’ll
guide you through the activation process.
How to unlock your phone:
If you received your Sprint PCS PhoneTM in the mail or
purchased it at a Sprint PCS Center, your phone is already
activated. Just enter your four-digit lock code, and you’ll be
ready to begin making calls.
If you can’t recall your lock code, try the last four digits of
either your Sprint PCS Phone number, Social Security
number or Tax ID number. If none of these numbers work,
your phone should be reprogrammed. Take it to the nearest
Sprint PCS Center for assistance.

If you need help with these steps or anything else regarding
your new Sprint PCS PhoneTM, please call Sprint PCS
Customer Care at 1-888-211-4PCS (4727).

Battery Installation, Charging and Care
Your Sprint PCS PhoneTM package includes a partially
charged, rechargeable battery so that you can use the phone
immediately after it is activated.
Installing the Battery
To attach the battery to your Sprint PCS Phone:
1. Hold the battery so that the metal contacts on the base
of the battery line up with the metal contacts on the
base of the phone.
2. Place the battery on the back of the phone with the top
of the battery about a quarter of an inch from the latch.
3. Gently slide the battery toward the top of the phone
until it snaps into place.
Dual-Slot Desktop Charger
The Dual-Slot Desktop Charger contains:
• Front compartment for charging the battery while
attached to the phone
• Rear compartment for charging the battery alone (not
attached to the phone)
• Red light to indicate that the battery is charging
(A yellow light indicates that the battery is operating at
a temperature that is too high or too low, or that the
battery is misaligned in the charger. Please check the
charger and battery.)
• Green light to indicate that the battery is fully charged
8
Getting Started
Charging the Battery
To charge the battery using the Dual-Slot Desktop Charger:
1. Plug the power cord of the charger into a wall outlet.
2. Select one of the following options:
• Insert the entire phone with battery attached into the
front compartment of the charger.
• Insert a single battery (alone, not attached to the
phone) into the rear compartment of the charger.
When two batteries are in the charger, the batteries charge
simultaneously. If you charge the battery while it is attached
to your Sprint PCS PhoneTM, the Battery Charge Indicator
on the LCD screen will immediately indicate a fully charged
battery. A green LED on the charger denotes that the battery
has completed its charge cycle.
A completely discharged standard battery recharges fully
in approximately 3.0 hours. The extended battery recharges
in approximately 5.0 hours. Leaving your Sprint PCS Phone
powered on during charging or charging batteries
simultaneously increases charging time. Leaving the
battery in the charger once it is fully charged does not
harm the battery.
Note: Use only the Samsung-approved Dual-Slot Desktop
Charger with your Sprint PCS Phone. Using the wrong
charger could damage the battery.
Battery Charge Indicator
The Battery Charge Indicator displays in the upper right
corner of the screen and indicates four levels of charge.
Three solid bars indicate a fully charged battery. When the
battery charge level is low or empty, a clear Battery Charge
Indicator (no bars displayed) flashes on the screen.

Getting Started
Caring for the Battery
Use only Samsung-approved batteries with Samsungapproved dual-slot desktop and travel chargers.
These chargers maximize battery life and performance.
Using other batteries or chargers may invalidate your
warranty and may damage the battery.
For proper battery care, please follow these guidelines:
• To avoid damage, charge the battery in temperatures
that range from 32° F to 104° F.
• Do not use the battery charger in direct sunlight or in
high humidity areas (such as a bathroom).
• Never dispose of the battery by incineration (fire).
• Keep the metal contacts at the battery base clean.
• Do not attempt to disassemble or short-circuit the
battery, as injuries or burns may result.
• Replace the battery when it no longer provides
acceptable performance.
• Do not allow metal objects or liquids to contact or
short-circuit the battery terminals, as injuries or burns
may result.
• To avoid damage, store the battery in temperatures
ranging from -4° F to 185° F, and avoid leaving the
battery unused for very long periods.
Table 3: Battery Storage Temperatures
• Less than one month: -4° F to 140° F (-20° C to 50° C)
• More than one month: -4° F to 113° F (-20° C to 35° C)

Battery Disposal and Recycling
Please follow these guidelines when disposing of or recycling
the battery:
• Do not dispose of the battery in a fire; the cell may
explode. Check the regulations in your area for
special disposal instructions.
• Do not open or puncture the battery; the released
electrolyte is corrosive and may cause damage to the
eyes and skin, and can be toxic if swallowed.
• Charge the battery in accordance with the
instructions specified in this user guide.
• Return unwanted Samsung Lithium Ion batteries to
your nearest Samsung Service Center. (Call toll free

Roaming With Your Sprint PCS Phone™
Where You Can Use Your Phone
Your Sprint PCS Phone™ is Dual-Band, which means you can
use it to make and receive calls in many places.
• In any city where Sprint PCS provides service.
• On other PCS CDMA networks and conventional
cellular networks where Sprint PCS has implemented
roaming agreements.
When you use your phone outside the Sprint PCS Network,
it’s called roaming. If you’re roaming in areas where Sprint
PCS has agreements in place with PCS CDMA or conventional
analog cellular providers, you will pay the roaming rate plus
long-distance charges, where they apply.
Note: In areas where Sprint PCS does not have roaming
agreements in place, you will still be able to make (but not
receive) calls using a credit card. This is called manual
roaming.
Setting Your Phone’s Mode
Your Sprint PCS Phone allows you to control your ability to
roam. For more information on how to use this feature, see
page 16 on changing modes.
What You’ll See
You should always check your phone’s display because it will
let you know when you’re outside the Sprint PCS Network
and whether your phone is operating in analog cellular or
digital mode.

Calling Options
Note - Always dial using 10 digits (area code + number) when
calling from outside your Sprint PCS Home Service Area.
Calling Experience
When you use your phone on other PCS CDMA networks,
your calling experience and call quality will be quite similar
to what you experience when making calls from within the
Sprint PCS Network. Although certain calling features may
not be available, your phone calls are still private and secure.
When you use your phone on analog cellular networks, your
experience will be different. Cellular roaming will be similar
to the quality provided by conventional analog cellular
carriers today. Although you will still have the convenience
of being able to make and receive calls, here are some
differences you can expect:
• You are more likely to experience static, cross-talk,
fade-out and dropped calls.
• Some calling features (such as Caller ID and voicemail
message indicator) that are standard within the
Sprint PCS Network may not be available.
• You will experience the same security and privacy risks
(eavesdropping and cloning) that exist with
conventional analog cellular services today.
• Battery life will be shorter when you use your phone for
cellular roaming than when you use it on a PCS CDMA
network.
24
Calling Options
If you’re on your phone and leave a Sprint PCS Service Area,
your call will be dropped. When reentering a Sprint PCS
Service Area while on a roaming call, turn your phone off
and on again to acquire Sprint PCS Service.
If you need customer service while using your phone
outside the Sprint PCS Network, dial 1-888-211-4PCS for
Sprint PCS Customer Care.
(If you are in Southern California, dial 1-800-455-4551)

Troubleshooting
Maximizing Call Quality
For optimum call quality with your Sprint PCS PhoneTM,
please follow these guidelines:
• Fully extend the antenna. While it may be possible to
place calls with the antenna retracted, the phone
operates best with the antenna fully extended.
• Hold the phone as you would hold any other telephone
handset. Speak directly into the mouthpiece, and
position the antenna up and over your shoulder while
talking.
• Do not hold the antenna while using the phone, as this
may affect call quality.
Caring for the Antenna
For proper care of the antenna, please follow these
guidelines:
• Replace a damaged antenna immediately. A broken
antenna may degrade call quality. For repairs in the U.S.,
call toll-free 1-888-987-HELP (4357).
• Use only the antenna attached to your Sprint PCS Phone.
Unauthorized antennas, modifications or attachments
could cause damage to the phone and may violate
Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulations.
Common Questions

asked questions. If you encounter other problems with your
Sprint PCS Phone, please contact your carrier or service
provider.
How do I turn on the phone?
Press and hold the
key until the phone sounds an alert
and displays the time, date and banner.

Appendix
What costs will I have with my Sprint PCS PhoneTM?
The costs depend on the Sprint PCS Service Plan you select.
There is a monthly invoice, which includes a monthly access
fee and per-minute airtime charge for use or talk time.
(Prepaid plans do not have monthly invoices.) The cost of a
monthly invoice varies depending on the service plan you
select and the number of calls you make each month. Many
service plans are available for the light, normal or heavy
volume user. Peak time and off-peak time charges also vary.
What do I do when my phone gives me an unclear
sound or the call quality is not good?
• Fully extend the antenna for best reception.
• Move to a location where the phone receives maximum
Received Signal Strength.
• For better sound quality, place and receive your calls in
an environment that is as quiet as possible.
The battery on my phone doesn’t seem to provide a lot
of talk time or standby time. Why is this?
To get the most talk time and standby time from your battery,
use the Dual-Slot Desktop Charger that comes with your
Sprint PCS Phone.
The backlight doesn’t stay on while I’m driving.
In the interest of safety, it is vital that you pay attention to the
road while you are driving. You may choose to install a
Hands-Free Car Kit, which allows convenient phone
operation and maintains the backlight.
The antenna feels like it could bend very easily.
The Sprint PCS Phone has a flexible antenna, which keeps its
shape when accidentally bent.
71
Appendix

Safety Considerations
For a variety of safety reasons, it is important to consider
where you will be using your Sprint PCS Phone. When using
your phone and its accessories, please follow these
guidelines:
Compliance with Safety Standards
This Sprint PCS Phone meets all standards and
recommendations for the protection of the public from
exposure to radio frequency (RF) electromagnetic energy
established by governmental bodies and other qualified
organizations. To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock,
serious personal injury or property damage, please follow
these guidelines:
Driving
Using a wireless phone while driving is illegal in some states
and countries. For your safety, become familiar with the laws
and regulations for your area, and pull off the road and park if
you need to make a call.
If you must use the phone while driving,
purchase and install the optional Hands-Free

72
Appendix
Electronic Devices
Your wireless telephone is a radio transmitter and receiver.
When the power is on, the phone receives and sends out RF
energy. Most modern electronic equipment, such as
equipment in hospitals and cars, contains an RF signal shield.
RF energy may affect some inadequately shielded electronic
equipment.
Turn off your phone in health care facilities, and always
request permission before using the phone near medical
equipment.
Consult the manufacturer of any personal medical devices,
such as pacemakers and hearing aids, to determine if they are
shielded adequately from external RF signals.
Note if there are any regulations posted in the area regarding
the operation of wireless phones, and learn where you can
use them safely within the facility.
Aircraft
Turn off your phone before boarding any aircraft. The Federal
Aviation Administration (FAA) requires that you have prior
permission from the crew to use your phone while the plane
is on the ground. FCC regulations prohibit using your phone
while the plane is in the air. Do not use your phone at any
time while traveling on board a plane.
Blasting Areas
Construction crews often use remote-control RF devices to
set off explosives. To avoid interfering with blasting
operations, turn off your phone when you are in a blasting
area or in any area with signs posted that read “Turn off twoway radio.”
73
Appendix
Other Dangerous Areas
Turn off your phone in any area with a potentially explosive
atmosphere. It is rare, but your phone or its accessories
could generate sparks, which could cause explosion or fire.
Areas with a potentially explosive atmosphere may not
always be clearly marked. These areas may include:
• Fueling areas, such as gas stations
• Below deck on boats
• Fuel or chemical transfer or storage facilities
• Areas where the air contains chemicals or particles such
as grain, dust or metal powders
• Any other area where you would normally be advised to
turn off your vehicle engine
Do not transport or store flammable gas, liquid or explosives
in the compartment of a vehicle containing your phone or
accessories.

close proximity to receiving equipment. The FCC can require
you to stop using the telephone to avoid further interference.
