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) C95.1
1992
• National Council on Radiation Protection and
Measurement (NCRP) Report 86 1986
• 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).
10
Introduction
The design of your phone complies with the FCC guidelines
(and those standards).
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.
Tips on Efficient Operation: Observe the following
guidelines to operate your phone most efficiently.
• Extend your antenna fully.
• 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
11
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.
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
12
Introduction
research by and recommendations of Wireless Technology
Research.
Persons with pacemakers:
• 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
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.
13
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.
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 when in any area with a potentially
explosive atmosphere and obey all signs and instructions.
14
Introduction
Sparks 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 fueling areas such
as gas stations; below deck on boats; fuel or chemical transfer
or storage facilities; vehicles using liquefied petroleum gas
(such as propane or butane); 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.
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.
15

Battery Information
Battery Talk Times and Standby
Times
The Basics
Battery talk time is the length of time you spend talking on
your phone before the battery needs to be charged. Battery
standby time is the length of time your phone is left on to
receive calls before the battery needs to be charged.
Keep in mind that your battery’s talk time and standby time
are a relative measurement of the battery’s capacity. The
more you talk on the phone, the less standby time you will
have and vice versa. Certain features can demand power
from your battery and reduce battery life. The following chart
is an approximate talk time and standby time guide for your
phone and its available batteries.
Slim Main Battery

Battery Covers
Your phone’s batteries are shipped in an uncharged state
with protective covers on them. Save these covers; use them to
carry batteries and to store batteries when they are not in use.
The cover prevents objects from touching the battery
terminals, thereby reducing the risk of injury or damage
from a short circuit. (See “Batteries” on page 11 for
additional safety information.)
To begin using your phone, just slip a battery out of its
protective cover, install, and charge the battery.

The Basics
An optional desktop charger is available for use with your
phone. The desktop charger’s front pocket can charge
batteries while they are attached to your phone, and the rear
pocket can charge batteries separately.
Desktop Charger Indicator Lights
• Red means that the battery is charging.
• Flashing yellow means that the battery is waiting its

Leaving Batteries in the Charger
The Basics
Lithium Ion batteries are different from other batteries in
that you can leave them in the charger. Nickel Metal Hydride
batteries should not be left in the charger for more than 24
hours.
Expert Performance (E•P™) Charging System
Your Motorola cellular phone implements the Motorola
Expert Performance (E•P™) charging system. This system
allows the charger that is built into the phone to
communicate with the battery. Based on this
communication, the charger can tailor the charging cycle to
optimize performance. If your charging system is not
communicating with the battery, your phone will beep and
display an Invalid Battery message each time you
power up the phone or replace the battery. Your phone is
alerting you that you do not have charging capabilities with
this battery.
There are several reasons why your battery might not be
communicating. The most likely reason is that the battery
you purchased is not a Motorola original battery and it does
not have the appropriate communication technology built
into it. All Motorola batteries are built with the appropriate
communication technology. We recommend that you use
Motorola original batteries and accessories and that you store
your batteries in the protective battery cover that comes with
the phone.
35
Storing and Disposing of Batteries
To prolong the life of your batteries, avoid exposing them to
temperatures below -10°C (14°F) or above 45°C (113°F). As
a good rule of thumb, always take your phone with you when
you leave your car.
To dispose of batteries, check with your recycling center for a
battery recycler near you. Never dispose of batteries in fire.
Switching Power Sources During a
Call
The quick change feature lets you switch power sources
without losing the call in progress. If you hear a low battery
warning while you are in a call, just plug in the optional
cigarette lighter adapter.
You can also remove your phone’s battery and replace it with
a charged spare without losing the call in progress. If you
hear a low battery warning while you are in a call, quickly
switch batteries and resume your conversation.
Keep in Mind: A quick change must be completed within
3 seconds to avoid losing the call in progress. Just give your
party on the line a warning before beginning this procedure.
If you do not switch power sources in time, you will lose any
settings that you have changed since the phone was last
turned on!
Caution: To prevent injuries or burns, do not allow metal
objects to contact or short circuit the battery terminals. (See
“Batteries” on page 11 for additional safety information.)

Numbers
Your phone can operate on two different home systems. If
you travel often, you can have your phone programmed with
two cellular numbers to reduce roaming. The Change
Number feature lets you change your active number to the
one appropriate for the area you are in.
Both phone numbers are designated as your home system,
but only one number can be active at any given time. Calls
are placed and received by the currently active number only.
Each time you turn your phone on, the display indicates
which phone number and home system are currently active:

system, and identifies a wireline home system as a type B
system.

voice recording chip that allows the phone to perform three
different functions with the VoiceNote™ feature:
• Digital Answering Machine
The built-in answering machine allows you to leave
an announcement message for callers and to record
messages from them.
• Voice Memo feature
Leave yourself a reminder message in your own
voice! (For example, “Pick up milk on the way
home.”)
• Call Record feature
Record the incoming portion of a telephone
conversation. (For example, record those directions

Reference Information
Accessory Options
An exciting line of Motorola cellular phone accessories, now
smaller and lighter than ever, can enhance and personalize
your cellular experience.
Batteries
Lithium Ion batteries are different from other batteries in
that you can leave them in the charger. Nickel Metal Hydride
batteries should not be left in the charger for more than 24
hours.
If your cellular phone is quickly becoming your companion,
an optional auxiliary battery will give your phone a boost.
Auxiliary batteries attach to the back of your phone and
provide extra talk time in addition to your main battery.
126
Cigarette Lighter Adapter
With the cigarette lighter adapter, you can power your phone
and charge your phone’s battery directly from your vehicle’s
cigarette lighter! In some cars, the engine must be running
in order for the cigarette lighter to operate.
Note: Check the laws and regulations on the use of wireless
telephones and their accessories in the areas where you drive.
Always obey them. The use of these devices may be prohibited
or restricted in certain areas.
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 front pocket can charge
batteries while they are attached to your phone, and the rear
pocket can charge batteries separately. Now it is easy to rotate
batteries and always have a charged spare.
Reference
127
Holster
Your Motorola cellular phone is so small and light, it is
positively wearable. Slip it in and clip it on—for the ultimate
in high-tech fashion.
Note: The holster is designed for your convenience and is
not meant to secure your phone under all circumstances.
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.
When you use the headset, your phone automatically enables
the Multiple Key Answer feature so you can answer calls with
any key on the side of your phone. (See “Setting Multiple Key
Answer” on page 104.) You can even use the Smart Button to
end calls. (See “Using the Smart Button” on page 38.) You
never need to open your phone to take a call.
128
PCMCIA Modems
These compact modems are made for mobility, with cable
attachments that plug directly into the bottom of your
Motorola cellular phone. They support fax, e-mail and data
transmission. The PCMCIA modem works with data devices
using a standard PCMCIA Type II slot.
Hands-Free Vehicle 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. Other features include the ability to mute your
stereo when making a call, and an auxiliary alert when you
are away from the vehicle.
The Hands-Free Kit automatically powers your phone and
charges its battery (even when your car’s engine is turned
off). The Hands-Free Kit also includes an external antenna
that can improve your signal reception and boost
performance.
Note: Check the laws and regulations on the use of wireless
telephones and their accessories in the areas where you drive.
Always obey them. The use of these devices may be prohibited
or restricted in certain areas.

Troubleshooting
Q. I pressed the Power key, but nothing happened. What is
wrong with my phone?
A. Check that you have installed a battery and that the
battery is charged. See “Battery Information” on pages
23-36 for more information on batteries for your
Motorola cellular phone.
Q. My battery did not last as long as I expected. What can I
do to extend battery life?
A. Keep in mind that your battery’s talk time and standby
time are a relative measurement of the battery’s capacity.
The more you talk on the phone, the less standby time
you will have and vice versa.
To get the most from your battery, make sure it is fully
charged. 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.
Certain features can demand power from your battery
and reduce battery life. If you have selected the Auto
Display Timer feature (see “Displaying the Individual
Call Timer Automatically” on page 75), the display uses
battery power to remain active during each call. Turn
this feature off to conserve battery energy.
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
132
temperature extremes. As a good rule of thumb, always
take your phone with you when you leave your car.
Q. Every time I turn on my phone it beeps and the display
reads Invalid Battery. What is going on?
A. Your Motorola cellular phone implements the Motorola
Expert Performance (E•P™) charging system. This
system allows the charger that is built into the phone to
communicate with the battery. Based on this
communication, the charger can tailor the charging
cycle to optimize performance. If your charging system
is not communicating with the battery, your phone will
beep and display the Invalid Battery message
each time you power up the phone or replace the battery.
Your phone is alerting you that you do not have
charging capabilities with this battery.
There are several reasons why your battery might not be
communicating. The most likely reason is that the
battery you purchased is not a Motorola original battery
and it does not have the appropriate communication
technology built into it. All Motorola batteries are built
with the appropriate communication technology. We
recommend that you use Motorola original batteries and
accessories and that you store your batteries in the
protective battery cover that comes with the phone.
Q. The display says Locked. How do I unlock my phone?
Reference
A. Try entering the last three digits of your cellular number.
If that does not work, try using the factory preset lock
133
code: 123. If all else fails, call your cellular service
provider (the company that sends you your monthly
cellular bill) for assistance. (See “Security Features” on
page 81 for more information on your phone’s security
features.)
Q. I tried to place a call and received a fast busy signal.
A. This sound means that the cellular system did not
process your call. For example, the cellular system may
be overloaded with call attempts. To redial the number,
press S before ending your call attempt, or press E
and try the call again later. (See “Redialing Numbers”
on page 42 for more information on redialing.)
Q. I tried to place a call and received an alternating high/
low tone.
A. This sound means your call did not reach the cellular
system. Most likely, you dialed the number too soon after
turning the phone on. Wait until the red NS light stops
blinking before placing a call.
An alternating tone may also indicate that your phone’s
signal is blocked. Make sure the antenna is fully
extended and move clear of any obstructions, like
bridges, parking garages, tall buildings, etc.
Q. My phone started beeping and the display says: Call
01. What happened?
A. This sound means that someone tried to call you while
you were in an area where the cellular signal was weak.
Press C to clear your display, extend your phone’s
134
antenna and avoid obstructions like tunnels, parking
garages and tall buildings whenever possible.
Q. I am in my home service area but the Roam indicator is
flashing.
A. If your phone is programmed with more than one
telephone number, you might not have switched to the
number appropriate for your current location. Press
R, #, s to switch to your other number. (See
“Using Two Cellular Phone Numbers” on page 95 for
more information on multiple phone numbers.)
Q. I tried to read my Voice Mail (or use a paging service or a
calling card) but nothing happened.
A. You have probably turned off the Scratchpad tones. Place
your call, enter the access numbers when prompted by
the recording, then press R, S. To avoid this
problem in the future, see “Setting Scratchpad Tones”
on page 80 for instructions on how to turn the
Scratchpad tones on.
Q. I tried to place a calling card call using the internal
Phone Book, but it did not work.
A. You may have turned off your Scratchpad tones. See
“Setting Scratchpad Tones” on page 80 for instructions
on how to turn the Scratchpad tones on.
Reference
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 over, enter your calling card
135
information again and store it in the same memory
location as your previous attempt. See “Storing Calling
Card Information” on page 64 for instructions on how to
enter calling card information.
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.
Q. My phone was stolen. What should I report and to
whom?
A. Report a stolen phone to the police and to your cellular
service provider (the company that sends you your
monthly cellular service bills).
