Safety Information
Important: Read this information before using your
wireless handheld phone.
Exposure to Radio Frequency Signals
Your wireless handheld portable telephone is a low
power radio transmitter and receiver. When it is
ON, it receives and also sends out radio frequency
(RF) signals.
In August 1996, The Federal Communications
Commissions (FCC) adopted RF exposure
guidelines with safety levels for handheld wireless
phones. Those guidelines are consistent with safety
standards previously set by both U.S. and
international standards bodies:
•
American National Standards Institute
(ANSI) IEEE. C95. 1-1992
•
National Council on Radiation Protection and
Measurement (NCRP) Report 86
•
International Commission on Non-Ionizing
Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) 1996
Those standards were based on comprehensive
and periodic evaluations of the relevant scientific
literature. For example, over 120 scientists,
engineers, and physicians from universities,
government health agencies, and industry
reviewed the available body of research to develop
the ANSI Standard (C95.1).
The design of your phone complies with the FCC
guidelines (and those standards).
vi
TDMA.book Page vii Tuesday, November 2, 1999 9:54 AM
Antenna Care
Use only the supplied or an approved replacement
antenna. Unauthorized antennas, modifications, or
attachments could damage the phone and may
violate FCC regulations.
Phone Operation
Normal Operation
Hold the phone as you would any other telephone,
with the antenna pointed up and over your
shoulder.
Tip on Efficient Operation
To operate your phone most efficiently, do not
touch the antenna unnecessarily when the phone is
in use. Contact with the antenna affects call quality
and may cause the phone to operate at a higher
power level than otherwise needed.
Batteries
Caution: All batteries can cause property damage,
injury, or burns if a conductive material, such as
jewelry, keys or beaded chains, touches exposed
terminals. The material may complete an electrical
circuit and become quite hot. To protect against
such unwanted current drain, exercise care in
handling any charged battery, particularly when
placing it inside your pocket, purse, or other
container with metal objects. When the battery is
detached from the phone, your batteries are
packed with a protective battery cover; please use
this cover for storing your batteries when not in use.
vii
TDMA.book Page viii Tuesday, November 2, 1999 9:54 AM
Driving
Check the laws and regulations on the use of
wireless telephones in the areas where you drive.
Always obey them. Observe the following
guidelines when using your phone while driving.
•
Give full attention to driving--driving safely is
your first responsibility.
•
Use hands-free phone operation, if available.
•
Pull off the road and park before making or
answering a call if driving conditions so
require.
Electronic Devices
Most modern electronic equipment is shielded
from RF signals. However, certain equipment may
not be shielded against the RF signals from your
wireless phone.
Pacemakers
The Health Industry Manufacturers Association
recommends that a minimum separation of six
inches (6") be maintained between a handheld
wireless phone and a pacemaker to avoid potential
interference with the pacemaker. These
recommendations are consistent with the
independent research by and recommendations of
Wireless Technology Research.
Persons with pacemakers:
viii
•
should ALWAYS keep the phone more than
six inches from their pacemaker when the
phone is turned ON
•
should not carry the phone in a breast pocket
•
should use the ear opposite the pacemaker
to minimize the potential for interference
•
should turn the phone OFF immediately if
you have any reason to suspect that
interference is taking place
TDMA.book Page ix Tuesday, November 2, 1999 9:54 AM
Hearing Aids
Some digital wireless phones may interfere with
some hearing aids. In the event of such
interference, you may want to consult your hearing
aid manufacturer to discuss alternatives.
Other Medical Devices
If you use any other personal medical device,
consult the manufacturer of your device to
determine if it is adequately shielded from external
RF energy. Your physician may be able to assist
you in obtaining this information.
Turn your phone OFF in health care facilities when
any regulations posted in these areas instruct you
to do so. Hospitals or health care facilities may be
using equipment that could be sensitive to external
RF energy.
Vehicles
RF signals may affect improperly installed or
inadequately shielded electronic systems in motor
vehicles. Check with the manufacturer or its
representative regarding your vehicle. You should
also consult the manufacturer of any equipment
that has been added to your vehicle.
Posted Facilities
Turn your phone OFF in any facility where posted
notices so require.
ix
TDMA.book Page x Tuesday, November 2, 1999 9:54 AM
Aircraft
FCC regulations prohibit using your phone while in
the air. Switch OFF your phone before boarding an
aircraft.
Blasting Areas
To avoid interfering with blasting operations, turn
your phone OFF when in a “blasting area” or in
areas posted: “Turn off two-way radio.” Obey all
signs and instructions.
Potentially Explosive Atmospheres
Turn your phone OFF and do not remove your
battery when you are in any area with a potentially
explosive atmosphere. Obey all signs and
instructions.
Sparks from your battery in such areas could cause
an explosion or fire resulting in bodily injury or even
death.
Areas with a potentially explosive atmosphere are
often but not always clearly marked. They include,
but are not limited to: fueling areas such as
gasoline stations; below deck on boats; fuel or
chemical transfer or storage facilities; areas where
fuel odors are present (for example, if a gas/
propane leak occurs in a car or home); areas
where the air contains chemicals or particles, such
as grain, dust, or metal powders; and any other
area where you normally would be advised to turn
off your vehicle engine.

TDMA.book Page xi Tuesday, November 2, 1999 9:54 AM
For Vehicles Equipped with an Air Bag
An air bag inflates with great force. Do NOT place
objects, including both installed or portable
wireless equipment, in the area over the air bag or
in the air bag deployment area. If in-vehicle
wireless equipment is improperly installed and the
air bag inflates, serious injury could result.

Battery Talk-Time and
Standby-Time
Batteries
Talk-time refers to the time you can talk on your
phone before the battery is fully discharged.
Standby-time is the time that your phone is on but
not used for talking.
Notes:
•
Talking on the phone uses more power than
leaving it idle. The more power you use for
talking, the less you’ll have for standby-time,
and vice-versa.
•
All times are approximate and depend on the
battery used, network configuration, signal
strength, and the features selected.
•
Talk and standby times are lower in analog
mode.
•
Your phone operates more efficiently in
Digital mode. If the D icon is displayed in the
lower left corner, your phone’s performance
is reflected in the digital section of the table
below.
The following table shows ranges for battery talktimes and standby times.

Battery Charging Tips
To ensure that you enjoy maximum battery life and
use your battery to its fullest capacity:
•
Always use Motorola approved battery
chargers.
•
For the best results, charge Li-Ion batteries
using the E•P™ Desktop Charger or your
phone’s internal charger.
•
The battery should be at or near room
temperature when charging.
•
New batteries or batteries that have been
stored for long periods of time may not rapid
charge properly. In these instances, the
battery requires an overnight charge.
•
When you don’t intend to use a battery for a
while, store it uncharged in a cool, dark, dry
place, such as a refrigerator.
•
Over extended periods of time, batteries
gradually wear down and require longer
charging times. This is normal. If you charge
your battery regularly and notice a decrease
in talk-time or an increase in charging time,
then it is probably time to purchase a new
battery.

Storing and Placing Numbers
with Pause Dialing
Pause Dialing
Phone Book
When you call automated systems, typically a
recorded message prompts you for PIN numbers,
Voice Mail numbers, etc. Pause dialing can make
using automated systems easy by allowing you to
store these numbers in the same memory location
as the phone number for the automated system.
These additional numbers are separated by
pauses—special characters that tell your phone to
wait before sending additional numbers. The pause
occupies a one-digit space in your phone’s
memory. Once you have entered a string of
numbers and pauses, you will store the string in the
same way you store other entries.

Reference Information
Accessory Options
An exciting line of Motorola accessories, now
smaller and lighter than ever, can enhance and
personalize your cellular experience.
Lithium Ion Batteries
Motorola’s Lithium Ion (LilON)
batteries are high-energy density
batteries that offer increased
capacity and are lighter in weight
than similar sized Nickel Cadmium
and Nickel Metal Hydride batteries.
Vehicle Power Adapter
With the vehicle power adapter,
you can power your phone and
charge your phone’s battery
directly from your vehicle’s
cigarette lighter! In some
vehicles, the engine must be
running in order for the cigarette
lighter to operate.
Desktop Charger (AC Adapter
required)
The desktop charger is
designed for optimal
performance and compatibility
with Motorola’s new generation
of cellular telephones. The
desktop charger’s pocket can
charge batteries while they are attached to or
separate from your phone. Now it is easy to rotate
batteries and always have a charged spare.
116
TDMA.book Page 117 Tuesday, November 2, 1999 9:54 AM
Charger Insert
The charger insert allows you to
make an existing Motorola
charger base compatible with
your new Timeport phone.
Holster
Your digital phone is so small
and light, it is positively
wearable. Slip it in and clip it
on—for the ultimate in
high-tech fashion.
Notes:
•
The holster is designed
for your convenience
and is not meant to
secure your phone
under all circumstances.
•
For body-worn use,
keep the antenna at
least one inch from your
body when transmitting.
Headset
The convenient headset provides
both an earphone and microphone in
one small piece for simple hands-free
and private telephone conversations.
The headset plugs directly into the
jack on the top of your phone, so that
you can wear your phone and move freely. Place
the foam cover on the earpiece for a more
comfortable fit.

TDMA.book Page 118 Tuesday, November 2, 1999 9:54 AM
Easy Install Hands-Free Car Kit
The optional Hands-Free Kit gives you the
convenience of hands-free, speaker phone
operation while in your car. Full duplex operation
lets you simultaneously talk and listen, so both
parties can interrupt each other for a normal
sounding conversation.
The Hands-Free Kit powers your phone and
charges its battery whenever your vehicle’s engine
is running.
Note: The use of wireless telephones and their
accessories (devices) may be prohibited or
restricted in certain areas. Always obey the laws
and regulations on the use of these devices.
Timeport Clip-On Organizer
The Timeport Clip-On
Organizer enables you to store,
view, and edit thousands of
names, numbers,
appointments, notes, and tasks
in a space smaller then the
average wallet. When used with
your Motorola Timeport phone,
it provides increased
functionality and value.
118
TDMA.book Page 119 Tuesday, November 2, 1999 9:54 AM
Note: Certain features including VibraCall® alert
will not operate on select StarTAC TDMA or analog
phones.
Accessory Limited Warranty
Information
We recommend that you use Motorola original
batteries and accessories. Under its limited cellular
telephone warranty, Motorola specifically disclaims
any responsibility for damage caused by the use of
portable cellular telephone accessories not
manufactured by Motorola.

accessories, see your dealer or visit our Web site at

Troubleshooting
Question
Answer
I pressed the
power button, but
nothing happened.
What’s wrong with
my phone?
Be sure to press and hold the power button until the
display appears and you hear an audible alert. If nothing
still happens, check that you have installed a battery and
that the battery is charged. For more information about
batteries and charging see the sections on batteries
starting with “Installing and Removing Batteries” on
page 20.
My battery didn’t
last as long as I
expected. What
can I do to extend
battery life?
Your battery’s “talk-time” and “standby-time” are
relative measurements of the battery’s capacity. The
more you talk on the phone, the less standby-time you
have, and vice versa.
To get the most from your battery, allow it to charge
fully. To charge the battery to 100% of its capacity, leave
it in the charger for an extra hour after the charger’s light
turns green.
You can also turn off the Power/Status Indicator to
extend battery life.
Certain features demand power from your battery and
reduce battery life. If you have selected the Automatic
Display of Individual Call Timer feature, the display uses
battery power to remain active during each call. Turn this
feature off to conserve battery energy. (See “Displaying
the Individual Timer Automatically” on page 72 for more
information on this feature.)
Use only batteries that are compatible with your phone.
Exposing your battery to extreme temperatures—below
-10°C (14°F) or above 45°C (113°F)—can shorten battery
life. Batteries are especially sensitive to high
temperature extremes. As a good rule, always take your
phone with you when you leave your car.
The display says,
“Locked.” How do I
unlock my phone?
Enter the last three digits of your cellular number. If that
doesn’t work, use the factory preset lock code: 123. If
all else fails, call your service provider (the company that
sends you your monthly cellular bill). (See “Locking/
Unlocking Your Phone” on page 85 for more information
on Security Features.)

Answer
I tried to place a
call and received a
fast busy signal.
The cellular system did not process your call. For
example, the cellular system may be overloaded with
call attempts. To redial, press S before ending your
call attempt, or press e and try the call again later.
(See “Redialing a Number” on page 36.)
I tried to place a
call and received
an alternating
high/low tone.
Your call did not reach the cellular system. You may have
dialed the number too soon after turning the phone on.
Wait until the “NS” light stops blinking before placing a
call.
An alternating tone may also indicate that your phone’s
signal is blocked. Be sure you’re clear of any
obstructions such as bridges, parking garages, or tall
buildings.
I tried to listen to
my Voice Mail (or
use a paging
service, a calling
card, etc.) but
nothing happened.
You may have turned off the Scratchpad tones. Place
your call, enter the access numbers when prompted by
the recording, then press rS. To avoid this problem
in the future, follow the directions “Turning Scratchpad
Tones On and Off” on page 81 to turn the Scratchpad
tones on.
My phone was
stolen. What
should I report and
to whom?
Report a stolen phone to the police and to your service
provider (the company that sends you your monthly
cellular service bills).
I tried to place a
calling card call
using the internal
Phone Book, but it
didn’t work.
You may have turned off your Scratchpad tones. Follow
the directions in “Turning Scratchpad Tones On and Off”
on page 81 to turn the Scratchpad tones on.
Check that you stored your calling card information in
the correct order, and make sure the groups of numbers
are separated by pauses. The easiest way to correct the
sequence may be to start from scratch. Follow the
instructions on “Storing Calling Card Information” on
page 61, enter your calling card information again, and
store it in the same memory location as your previous
attempt.
Also keep in mind that when using your calling card, you
must enter the number you are calling with the area
code, but without the initial “1.” Check with your long
distance carrier for details on using your calling card.
