Battery Use and Maintenance
• The Motorola iDEN Approved Lithium Ion chargers provide optimum performance.
Other chargers may not fully charge the iDEN Lithium 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).
• Lithium Ion batteries have a self discharge rate and without use, lose about 1% of
their charge per day.
• The battery capacity is degraded if the battery is stored for long periods while fully
charged. If long term storage is required, store at half capacity.

USB cable to connect your Smartphone to your desktop computer. You are now ready to
set up a partnership between your Smartphone and your desktop computer.
Tip: Before you copy your Outlook Contacts to your Smartphone Contact list, it is a
good idea to clean up your Outlook Contacts list to avoid duplication of Contacts
that may already be on your Smartphone, and to assure that your Contacts are
alphabetized consistently with the Contacts on your Smartphone. Your Outlook
Contacts are combined in the same list as your Smartphone Contacts.
Run the ActiveSync New Partnership Wizard
If you have not done so already, press and hold p for 2 to 3 seconds to power on
the Smartphone.
2 When your desktop computer detects the USB connection, it will start the ActiveSync
New Partnership Wizard. Follow the instructions on the screen.
After you finish using the wizard, your data will begin to synchronize between your
desktop computer and your Smartphone. After synchronizing for the first time, take a
look at E-mail, Contacts, Calendar, and Tasks on the Smartphone. You will notice that
your information has been copied to the Smartphone. Disconnect the Smartphone from
the desktop computer and you are ready to go!
For more information about installing and using ActiveSync desktop client, see
“ActiveSync Desktop Client” on page 139.

Wireless Local Number Portability:
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 Smartphone 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 Smartphone letting you know that activation is complete. Simply turn
your Smartphone off and back on again to complete activation.
Here is additional information you need to be aware of until the number you have brought
to Nextel is active on the Nextel network:
Nextel® Voice Mail
We suggest you set up your voice mail box after the number you brought to Nextel is
active on your Smartphone and your temporary phone number is deactivated. If you set
up your voice mail 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 Smartphone.
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
Smartphone if in the meantime your Smartphone 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 sprint.com/bringyournumber for more details.
Sprint® Customer Care
Sprint Customer Care: 1-800-639-6111 or dial 611 from your i920/i930 phone.
Nextel Worldwide Customer Care: +1-360-662-5202 (toll-free from your i920/i930
phone).

The Basics
This chapter provides basic information about using your Smartphone, such as moving
through the screens, understanding what is on your screen, entering text and numbers,
and securing the Smartphone.
Navigation Methods
The following topics describe how to move through the Smartphone screens and perform
tasks quickly and easily.
Using the Navigation Pad
You can use the navigation pad to perform the following actions:
• Scrolling horizontally and vertically, moving the selection focus on the screen.
• Selecting an item that has the focus (is highlighted).
Scroll by pressing the part of the navigation pad that corresponds to the direction in
which you want to scroll. Once you have scrolled to an item, you can then select it by
pressing O at the center of the navigation pad.
In many cases, scrolling to an item and pressing O (in other words, “selecting” the item)
takes you to a program or setting. When you scroll to a check box, pressing O selects or
clears the check box.
In most procedures in this document, “select” means scrolling to an item and pressing O.
In some programs, such as Messaging, you can move to the next or previous item by
scrolling left or right. For example, when you are viewing a message in Messaging, you
can move to subsequent messages in the message list by scrolling right.
Some screens, such as the ones in Settings, let you select an option by scrolling left and
right within a field. Usually, you apply the option by pressing the soft key below Done.

If you are using a headset or other accessory with a remote Walkie-Talkie button, you
can use the remote Walkie-Talkie button for phone calls, Walkie-Talkie calls, and
Talkgroup calls.
For phone calls, use the remote Walkie-Talkie button to answer calls, switch between
calls, and end calls. Hold the remote Walkie-Talkie button for less than 2 seconds to
answer calls and switch between calls. Hold the remote Walkie-Talkie button for more
than 2 seconds to end calls.
For Walkie-Talkie calls and Talkgroup calls, use the remote Walkie-Talkie button as you
would the Walkie-Talkie button on your phone.
When you are not in a call or receiving a call, pressing the remote Walkie-Talkie button
for more than 2 seconds enables you to enter a phone number by using a voice shortcut.
Note: When using a headset, the Walkie-Talkie button on your phone works the
same way as when you are not using a headset. Walkie-Talkie and Talkgroup
sounds will be heard through the headset.

Phone Calls
This chapter explains how to make, receive, and manage digital cellular phone calls, and
create aids that help you make calls more efficiently, such as speed dials and voice
shortcuts.
Making a Phone Call
There are several ways to make a phone call. This section describes how to make a call
from the following locations:
• The Home screen
• Contacts
• The list of recently dialed phone numbers
• The recent calls list
• An e-mail message
This section also covers how to make emergency calls.
Making a Phone Call from the Home Screen
On the Home screen, you can call someone by entering a phone number or a contact
name using the keypad.
As you begin pressing keys, your Smartphone displays the names from your Contacts
and recent call list whose name or phone number match your entry. You can then select
the name or number to call without having to enter the entire name or number.
Contacts appear on the Home screen with this icon
and a contact list abbreviation.
You can view all the contact list abbreviations for all the numbers stored in this contact by
scrolling to the name and then scrolling left and right. The phone call is made to the
phone number associated with the contact list abbreviation that is showing when you
press s.
Note: For more information about contact list abbreviations, see “Contacts, Calendar,
and Tasks” on page 101.

Making Emergency Phone Calls
Your Smartphone supports emergency calling. Emergency phone calls can be made
even when your SIM card is blocked or not in your Smartphone.
Dial 911 to be connected to an emergency response center.
When you make an emergency call, your Smartphone’s GPS Enabled feature can help
emergency service personnel find you, if you are in a location where your Smartphone's
GPS antenna has established a clear view of the open sky and your local emergency
response center has the equipment to process location information. See “GPS Enabled”
on page 158, and particularly “IMPORTANT: Things to Keep in Mind” on page 158 and
“Making an Emergency Call” on page 159, for more information on the limitations of this
feature. Because of the limitations of this feature, always provide your best knowledge of
your location to the emergency response center when you make an emergency call.
Important: If you have not registered on the network, emergency calls cannot
be placed while your SIM card is in your Smartphone.
Important: If you are bringing your phone number to Nextel from your previous
carrier, you may receive a temporary telephone number while your
Smartphone is being programmed with your permanent phone
number. If you make a call to 911 and the call fails, the 911
emergency response center will not be able to call you back on your
Smartphone if in the meantime, your Smartphone has been
programmed with your permanent telephone number. If the call is
disconnected before location and details have been provided, call
911 again and advise that you were disconnected.
Make an emergency call
• Enter 911 and press s.
Having Problems Making a Call?

Smartphone is turned on and unlocked, and your Smartphone is receiving an adequate
signal.

voice mail while roaming. For more information about using voice mail while roaming,
please see “Nextel Worldwide® Services” on page 75.

Setting Up Wireless E-mail
52
Setting Up Wireless E-mail
There are two primary ways to set up your Smartphone to wirelessly synchronize your email, so you can send and receive e-mail messages from your Smartphone:
• Corporate E-mail — Synchronize the Outlook E-mail, Calendar, and Contacts on
your Smartphone with Microsoft® Outlook® E-mail, Calendar, and Contacts on your
Microsoft® Exchange server 2003.
Note: If your company does not use Microsoft Exchange server 2003, there are other
solutions available that may enable you to wirelessly synchronize with your
corporate e-mail, depending on the other type of e-mail server you have. Go to
sprint.com for more details.
• Personal E-mail — Connect to a POP3 or IMAP4 e-mail server to send and receive
Internet e-mail messages.
Making Sure You Have the Correct Data
Access Plan
Before setting up e-mail on your new Smartphone, make sure you have updated your
data plan to one with unlimited access. Users who rely on e-mail or other data services to
keep them connected “on-the-go”, typically require frequent data use and need a plan
that includes a data access bundle. This will ensure that you don’t incur extra charges
every time you synchronize e-mail or go to a Web site – unlimited data access plans
allow you to access everything you need to – as many times as you need to – without
any extra charges. To be sure you have the right plan, talk to your sales representative
or call Sprint Customer Care at 800-639-6111.
Setting up Corporate E-mail, Calendar, and
Contacts
Your Smartphone includes Outlook E-mail, Calendar, and Contacts applications. You
can synchronize these applications with your corporate E-mail, Calendar, and Contacts if
your company is using Microsoft Exchange 2003 with ActiveSync. When you set up your
Smartphone to wirelessly synchronize, the E-mail, Calendar, and Contacts on your
phone synchronize with your Outlook on the corporate Exchange server. Only those
applications that are marked for synchronization on your Smartphone are copied in this
manner.
Note: If your company does not use Microsoft® Exchange server 2003, there are
other solutions available that may enable you to wirelessly synchronize with
your corporate e-mail. Go to sprint.com for more details.
To set up your corporate e-mail account, locate the following information before you
begin:
• Make sure your e-mail is running on Microsoft Exchange 2003.
• Get your corporate network server domain name and server name (these may be the
same as your company’s Web mail log-in information, or you can get the information
from your system administrator).
• You must also know your Exchange user name and password to synchronize with the
server.
Setting Up Wireless E-mail

Once you create a connection, you can edit the connection later to stop synchronizing a
particular application (E-mail, Calendar, or Contacts) or change how much information is
synchronized.

Creating a Synchronization Schedule
After you set up your Smartphone to access your corporate E-mail, Calendar, and
Contacts, you can create an automated schedule for wirelessly synchronizing the
information. You can schedule synchronization of your Smartphone on 2 separate time
schedules. Use the peak times schedule to synchronize during working hours or other
times you experience higher mail volumes. Use the off-peak schedule to synchronize
during times when you experience lower mail volumes. When you are roaming, you can
synchronize manually to reduce roaming charges, or you can synchronize using the
mobile schedules.
Note: To edit schedule settings, your Smartphone must be disconnected from your
desktop computer.
1 On the Home screen, select Start.
2 Select ActiveSync.
3 Select Menu and then Options.
4 Select Mobile Schedule.
5 Select how often to synchronize in the Peak time sync (during the work day) list. The
recommended setting is Every 30 Minutes, or less frequently.
6 Select how often to synchronize in the Off-peak time sync (evening and weekends)
list. The recommended setting is Manually.
7 Select whether or not to synchronize on a schedule in the Roaming sync list. The
recommended setting is Manually, because your sync costs will be on a different
plan with International Wireless Data Services (GPRS) roaming.
8 Select Sync outgoing items as they are sent to synchronize every time you send
e-mail.
9 Select Done.
The recommended setting for Peak time sync is Every 30 Minutes, or less frequently,
for the following reasons:
• When your Smartphone is synchronizing (in a data session), you cannot receive
cellular service (an incoming call, for example). A less frequent synchronization
schedule will reduce the chances that you may miss a call.
• Every time you synchronize there is a reduction in battery life. A less frequent
synchronization schedule will keep your battery life stronger, for a longer period of
time.
• You can always initiate a manual sync in case you need to make sure you have the
latest information.
Synchronizing Automatically
Note: If you set up more than three e-mail accounts on the Smartphone to
synchronize automatically, the settings will automatically revert to manual.
With ActiveSync you can schedule automatic synchronization between your Smartphone
and a server every time an item arrives or is changed at the server. Your Smartphone is
informed of that event and synchronizes automatically to retrieve those items, making
your Smartphone always up-to-date. You must synchronize your Smartphone at least
once (such as after creating a partnership) before you can see and change the settings
for synchronization as items arrive.

Setting up Personal E-mail
Another way to send and receive e-mail messages is by using your personal Internet email account. To set up an Internet e-mail account on your Smartphone, you need to
know which type of e-mail server hosts your mail box: IMAP4 or POP3. You also need
your e-mail user name and password, and your domain name. If you are not sure,
contact your Internet Mail Provider’s Help Desk.
Some popular IMAP4 or POP3 Internet E-mail accounts include: aol.com, comcast.net,
yahoo.com, bellsouth.net, earthlink.net, mindspring.com, and pacbell.net. Check with
your provider to find out if they require you to upgrade to a premium account in order to
gain access with your Smartphone.

Using Wireless Messaging
Features
You can use your Smartphone to send and receive e-mail, text messages, media
messages (MMS), and instant messages.
Your Smartphone is already set up for voice mail messaging, if your phone service
includes this feature.
Note: To receive voice mail messages, you must first set up your voice mail box. See
“Nextel® Voice Mail”.
This chapter describes how to work with messages on your Smartphone. It discusses the
following topics:
• Working with messaging accounts
• Creating, sending, and receiving messages
• Importing text messages
• Viewing and responding to messages
• Working with large messages and attachments
• Working with message folders
• Customizing message notifications
• Using MSN® Messenger for instant messaging
For information on setting up personal and corporate e-mail accounts, see “Setting Up
Wireless E-mail” on page 52.
Understanding Messaging Features
You can compose and view e-mail messages and media messages directly on your
Smartphone. You can also use instant messaging with MSN Messenger.
While on the Nextel iDEN digital network, you can receive text messages (SMS). While
roaming on a GSM network, you can send or recieve text messages.
E-mail Messaging
There are 4 ways to send and receive e-mail messages with the Smartphone:
• By wirelessly synchronizing your Outlook E-mail Inbox folder with Microsoft® Outlook®
on your Microsoft® Exchange server.
• By wirelessly connecting to a POP3 or IMAP4 e-mail server to send and receive
Internet e-mail messages.
• By synchronizing your Outlook E-mail Inbox folder with Microsoft Outlook on your
desktop computer using ActiveSync desktop client and the Sync Cradle and mini USB
cable.
• Use Pocket Internet Explorer to view Web-based e-mail.
For information on setting up personal and corporate e-mail accounts, see “Setting Up
Wireless E-mail” on page 52.
Using Wireless Messaging Features
58
Text Messaging (SMS)
You can send and recieve text messages only in GSM mode. While using the Nextel
iDEN digital network, you can only recieve text messages.
In GSM mode, you can send and receive text messages up to 160 characters in size.
While using the iDEN network, you can recieve messages up to 500 characters long.
The advantages of text messaging include the following:
• Text messages are sent instantly.
• Text messages can be sent or received at any time, except during a data call, WalkieTalkie call, or Talkgroup call.
• Most mobile phones support text messages, so most recipients can read text
messages that you send.
Note: You cannot synchronize text messages with your desktop computer, and you
cannot use text messages to send or receive attachments or voice notes.
Media Messaging (MMS)
Media messages are composed of 1 or more pages, and each page can contain up to 1
picture, text region, and sound. Thus, when the recipient opens your media message,
the experience is similar to watching a simple slideshow. The recipient must download
the message before viewing it.
You can create media messages of up to 100 KB in size, including pictures and sound
files.
The advantages of media messages include the following:
• After the message has been downloaded, media messages essentially “play” the
picture or sound you attach to the message, so the recipient does not have to
download each attached file.
• Media messages can be sent or received any time your Smartphone is turned on and
not in a voice or data call.
Instant Messaging
You can use MSN® Messenger on the Smartphone to send and receive instant
messages. MSN Messenger on the Smartphone provides the same chat environment as
MSN Messenger on your desktop computer. For example, you can chat with a single
MSN Messenger contact, or with several contacts at once. You can switch between
active chats, block contacts, and configure display settings, such as your name and
current status (Away, Online, and so on).
An external QWERTY mini-keyboard for easy text entry can be purchased at sprint.com
or by calling call 1-800-NEXTEL6.
For information on setting up the Smartphone for instant messaging, see “Sending and
Receiving Instant Messages” on page 72.

Sending and Receiving Messages
• The Smartphone immediately sends text messages when you select Send on the
New Message screen. When you receive a message, the new message icon appears
at the top of the screen. The Smartphone automatically receives text messages
whenever it is turned on. If you recieve a text message during a call or data session,
your phone notifies you after the call or data session has ended. If your phone is
powered off when you receive a text message, your phone notifies you the next time
you power it on. If you are out of your coverage area, your phone alerts you when you
return to your coverage area.
• For media messages, there are 2 modes of sending and receiving messages:
automatically and manually.
• In automatic mode, messages are sent automatically when you select Send on the
New Message screen. In manual mode, messages are moved to Outbox and will
be sent the next time you select Send/Receive.
• In automatic mode, messages are received automatically. An exception to this is
when an application that uses a wireless data connection is in use. For example, if
Pocket Internet Explorer is downloading a Web page, it will prevent a media
message from being downloaded automatically. In manual mode, you will receive a
notification with instructions on how to download the media message.
Note: Media messages cannot be sent or received during a phone call if you are in
manual mode.

Working with Large Messages and Attachments
When you receive large e-mail messages and attachments, the Smartphone downloads
only a portion of them. You can view the partial message or attachment and decide if you
want to download the rest of it.
When you synchronize your Outlook E-mail account with your desktop computer or
Exchange Server, the Smartphone downloads the first 0.5 KB of each new e-mail
message by default. When you connect to an Internet e-mail server, it downloads the
amount (in KB) of each new message that you specified when you set up the account.
The message size includes its attachments. The original messages and attachments
remain on the server or your desktop computer.
Note: For information about changing Outlook e-mail synchronization settings, see
“ActiveSync Desktop Client” on page 139. For information about changing
Internet e-mail settings, see “Setting Up Wireless E-mail” on page 52.
In the message list, messages with an attachment display an envelope icon with a
paperclip. Within a message, attachments are displayed as a list of hyperlinks at the
bottom of the message, and are preceded by an attachment icon. The hyperlink includes
the file name and size of the attachment.
Note: On messages received from a POP3 e-mail server, the attachment size is
omitted.
The attachment icon has the following 3 states:

Working with Message Folders
Each messaging account has a set of folders in which the Smartphone stores messages
for that account. The default folders are:
• Deleted Items. Contains messages that you delete until you empty this folder.
• Drafts. Contains messages that you save before sending.
• Inbox. Contains messages that you receive.
• Outbox. For the Outlook E-mail account, contains sent e-mail messages until you
synchronize. For other e-mail accounts, contains sent e-mail messages until you
connect to your e-mail server.
• Outbox. For the Outlook E-mail account, contains sent e-mail messages until you
synchronize. For other e-mail accounts, contains sent e-mail messages until you
connect to your e-mail server. Text messages are sent immediately over the network
and appear in your Text Messages Outbox folder only for a few seconds. Media
messages are sent immediately while in automatic mode. For more information about
sending media messages, see “Sending and Receiving Messages” on page 65.
• Sent Items. Contains copies of messages that you send.
If you want, you can move a message to a different folder within the same account.

Sending and Receiving Instant Messages
You can use MSN Messenger on your Smartphone to send and receive instant
messages. MSN Messenger on your Smartphone provides the same chat environment
as MSN Messenger on your desktop computer. Features of this environment include:
• Sending and receiving instant messages.
• Seeing the status of others in your MSN Messenger contacts list, or changing your
own status (for example, available, busy, or out to lunch).
• Inviting other people to a chat.
• Blocking contacts from seeing your status or sending you messages.
Setting up MSN Messenger
Before you can use MSN Messenger, you must take steps to set it up. First, you need
either a Microsoft .NET Passport account or a Hotmail account. To set up a Microsoft
.NET Passport account, go to: http://www.passport.com. Once you have this account,
you need to do the following:
Create a connection on your Smartphone, such as a modem or wireless connection that
allows you to connect to the Internet. For more information about creating connections,
see “Phone Networks” on page 127.
Using MSN Messenger
You can sign in to MSN Messenger using your Hotmail credentials or your .NET
Passport. Once you sign in, you can create contacts and exchange instant messages
with them. This is called “chatting.” Contacts must have a Hotmail or .NET Passport
account and must have MSN Messenger installed.

Placing Worldwide Calls
Placing international calls has never been easier. The phone and Nextel Worldwide
Service include access to multiple networks so you can get connected and stay
connected. Use “+ Dialing” when making calls from one country to another, or within a
foreign country. To place an international call using the “+ Dialing” feature, see “+
Dialing” on page 76.
+ Dialing
+ Dialing lets you quickly place an international call without entering the local
international access code. + Dialing can be used for country-to-country calls as well as
local or long distance calls in a foreign country.
1 Press and hold 0 for two seconds. A “0” appears, then changes to a “+.”
Note: The network translates the “+” into the appropriate international access code
needed to place the call.
2 Enter the country code, city code or area code, and phone number.
3 Press s.
Direct Dial

Manually enter the international access code (varies per country) plus the country
code, city or area code, and phone number.
2 Press s.
Note: If an international call cannot be completed using + Dialing, use Direct Dial.
Please be aware that many in-country phone numbers will require a “0” before
the local number.
Setting the Way Your Phone Searches for
Networks
When you are traveling internationally, you may want to configure the phone to search
for a specific network or enable it to select the best network. You do this using the iDEN/
GSM Selection setting.
There are six options available:
Note: Your phone comes programmed with Last active as the default setting. This is
the recommended setting, which reduces network registration time.
• Last active — This option enables the phone to switch between iDEN and GSM
systems that do not overlap. For example, you send or receive calls on an iDEN
network while in New York. Then you travel to Paris. Your phone will first search for an
iDEN network. If it cannot locate one, it will automatically search for a GSM network.
Your Smartphone will always register on the last active mode.
• iDEN preferred — This option is useful if your home system is iDEN and you travel to
a country or region where GSM coverage is also available. Your Smartphone always
searches first for iDEN networks. If an iDEN network is not found, your phone will then
search for a GSM network.
Nextel Worldwide® Services
77
• GSM preferred —This option is useful if your home system is GSM and you travel to
a country or region where iDEN is also available. Your phone will always search for
GSM networks first. If a GSM network is not found, your phone will then search for an
iDEN network.
• iDEN only — This option is useful when you are in an area that is covered by iDEN
and GSM networks, but you want to use iDEN. Your Smartphone attempts to register
only on iDEN networks. This is the optimal setting you should set your Smartphone to
when in a Nextel iDEN service region.
• GSM only — This option is useful when you are in an area that is covered by iDEN
and GSM, but you want to use GSM. Your Smartphone attempts to register only on
GSM networks. This is the optimal setting you should set your Smartphone to when in
a region with only GSM carriers.
• Roam — This option is useful when you are in an overlapping system-coverage area
and have no preference for either the iDEN or the GSM network. Your Smartphone will
switch between iDEN and GSM until it finds an acceptable network.
Note: Be aware that some features that are supported by the Nextel iDEN network
are not supported when you connect to a GSM network.

Searching for a Network
While you are on a GSM network, you can perform an automatic or manual search for
available networks. A manual search allows you to view the available networks and
make a selection rather than use the network automatically selected by the Nextel
Worldwide Service.
Note: Your phone will automatically attempt to register with networks that have
agreements with Nextel. By manually selecting a network, you may choose a
network that does not have an agreement with Nextel or does not offer optimal
coverage in that area.

Text Messaging (SMS)
You can send and recieve text messages only in GSM mode. While using the Nextel
iDEN digital network, you can only recieve text messages. In GSM mode, you can send
and receive text messages up to 160 characters in size. While using the iDEN network,
you can recieve messages up to 500 characters long.
The advantages of text messages include the following:
• Text messages are sent instantly.
• Text messages can be sent or received at any time, except during a data call, WalkieTalkie call, or Talkgroup call.
• Most mobile phones support text messages, so most recipients can read text
messages that you send.
Note: You cannot synchronize text messages with your desktop computer, and you
cannot use text messages to send or receive attachments or voice notes.

Note: If you are bringing your phone number from another carrier, we suggest you set
up your voice mail box after the number you brought to Nextel is active on your
Smartphone and your temporary phone number is deactivated. If you set up
your voice mail 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.

you for using Nextel Voice Mail,” your mail box is set up.
If you are calling from a phone other than your i920/i930 phone, dial your 10-digit Nextel
PTN. When you hear the greeting, press * to access your voice mail box. The system

Nextel Walkie-Talkie Calls, Call
Alerts, and Talkgroup Calls
This chapter explains how to make, receive, and manage Walkie-Talkie calls, call alerts,
and Talkgroup calls.
Walkie-Talkie calls let you use your Smartphone as a long-range, digital Walkie-Talkie.
Call alerts let the recipient know you would like to talk to him or her on a Walkie-Talkie
call. Talkgroup calls are Walkie-Talkie calls to more than one Walkie-Talkie number at
the same time.
Nextel Walkie-Talkie Service
Nextel offers the following Walkie-Talkie services on the i920/i930 Smartphone:
• Local Walkie-Talkie — allows Walkie-Talkie calling within your local coverage area.
• Nationwide Walkie-Talkie — allows coast-to-coast Walkie-Talkie calling to Nextel
users from anywhere on the Nextel National Network (U. S.) to anywhere on the
National Network.
• International Walkie-Talkie — allows Walkie-Talkie calling to and from select countries.
• Talkgroup — allows Walkie-Talkie calling to up to 100 Nextel customers
simultaneously (see “Talkgroup Calls” on page 94).
For more details on these Walkie-Talkie services, go to sprint.com. Under Personal,
click on Wireless, and then click Nextel® Walkie-Talkie. Pricing for each of these
services is based on your service contract.
Dialing Walkie-Talkie Numbers
Every Walkie-Talkie number has 3 parts — an area ID, a network ID, and a member ID
— with an asterisk between each of these parts. For example: 999*999*9999.
When you place a Walkie-Talkie call, you must enter the whole Walkie-Talkie number
including the asterisks.
Tip: When you store a Walkie-Talkie number in Contacts, it is good practice to
include the whole Walkie-Talkie number including the asterisks.
Making a Walkie-Talkie Call
There are several ways to make a Walkie-Talkie call. This section describes how to
make a call from the following locations:
• From the Home screen

a contact contains a Walkie-Talkie number, you can make a Walkie-Talkie call to that
number even if the contact list abbreviation for the Walkie-Talkie number (PTT) is not
showing.
Note: For more information about contact list abbreviations, see “Contacts, Calendar,

Contacts, Calendar, and Tasks
This chapter introduces features on your Smartphone that help you manage and keep
track of contacts, appointments, and schedule, and maintain a things-to-do list. This
chapter also explains how to send and receive contact and appointment information
between your Smartphone and another mobile device or a desktop computer (beaming
data) by using infrared technology.
For information about synchronizing Contacts with your desktop computer, see
“ActiveSync Desktop Client” on page 139.
Using Contacts
You can think of Contacts as an address book, where you store information about people
and businesses with whom you communicate. For example, you can store multiple
phone numbers, e-mail and street addresses, Web pages, as well as other information
that relates to the contact, such as a birthday or anniversary date.
You can specify a special ring tone for the Smartphone to use when a contact calls. You
can also assign a contact to a category, such as business or personal, so you can filter
the contact list to view contacts in a category. You can use Contacts to dial phone
numbers and compose e-mail and text messages directly from a contact card. The
contacts you create are saved in your Smartphone, but you can copy them to your SIM
card and copy contacts on your SIM card to your phone. You can synchronize contact
cards with your desktop computer or beam contact cards to another device.
Note: Your Smartphone may display the menu option New SIM Contact. This option
has no function. Please do not select it.
The Contact List
The contact list displays the names of your contacts alphabetically. From this list, you
can create new contact cards with address, phone, and e-mail information. You can also
easily call a contact directly from the list, open a contact card to view and edit its
information, or delete a contact card. When you synchronize with your desktop
computer, your contact information is updated to reflect any changes on both your
Smartphone and your desktop computer.
Beside each name in the contact list is an abbreviation for the default communication
method. If the default method is a phone number, such as a work (w) or home phone

Making Calls from Contacts
You can make phone calls and Walkie-Talkie calls from your contact list or from an open
contact.
When you make a call from your contact list, the Smartphone dials the contact’s default
number. The contact list abbreviation associated with the default number appears with
the contact when you view the contact list. You can change a contact’s default number at
any time.
You can view all the contact list abbreviations for all the numbers stored in this contact by
scrolling to the name and then scrolling left and right.
A phone call is made to the phone number associated with the contact list abbreviation
that is showing when you press s. When you make a call from an open contact, you can

Using Tasks
A task is a personal or work-related project, assignment, or errand to track through
completion. A task can occur once, or it can recur. A recurring task can repeat at regular
intervals or repeat based on the date you mark the task complete. For example, you
might want to pay a bill on the last Friday of every month, or get a haircut when 1 month
has passed since your last haircut.
The Task List
The task list is your “things to do” list. On the Smartphone you can create and delete
tasks and mark them as complete. Completed tasks are displayed with the
corresponding check box selected.

that it cannot make or receive phone calls, Walkie-Talkie calls, or Talkgroup calls; or
transfer data.

Profiles
You can use Profiles settings to change how the Smartphone notifies you of events such
as incoming calls, approaching appointments, or arriving messages.
The Smartphone includes 8 profiles. You can use the profiles as-is, or you can edit and
rename them to suit your needs. For each profile, you can choose the ring type and
volume, the alarm type and volume, the notification type and volume, and the system
sound volume.
Note: The Ring Volume setting in profiles controls the volume level for the ring sound
of line 1, line 2, messages, and data. For information about setting the volume
level for the earpiece or speaker when you are in a call, see “Voice Volume” on
page 125.
You can quickly select the profile suited to your current situation. For example, when you
are attending a meeting, you can choose the Meeting profile, which silences the ring of
your Smartphone and provides visual notifications only. When you are waiting for an
important call, you can choose the Speakerphone profile, which makes your Smartphone
ring loudly.
The following table describes the profiles that are included with the Smartphone. The
default profile is the Normal profile.

ActiveSync Desktop Client
139
ActiveSync Desktop Client
This chapter introduces the basic features of Microsoft® ActiveSync® desktop client
technology. It describes how to use ActiveSync for synchronizing information on your
Smartphone with your desktop computer.
For detailed information about using ActiveSync desktop client, see ActiveSync Help
once you have installed the client on your desktop computer by clicking the Help tab and
selecting ActiveSync Help.
Note: You do not need to install ActiveSync desktop client in order to synchronize
wirelessly. For information on wirelessly synchronizing e-mail, see“Setting Up
Wireless E-mail” on page 52.
Understanding ActiveSync Desktop Client
ActiveSync desktop client synchronizes information stored on your Smartphone with
Microsoft® Outlook® information on your desktop computer. It also allows you to share
files between your Smartphone and your desktop computer.
When you synchronize, ActiveSync desktop client compares the information on your
Smartphone with the information on your desktop computer and updates all locations
with the most recent information.
With ActiveSync desktop client, you can:
• Synchronize Outlook e-mail, Contacts, Calendar, and Tasks information on your
Smartphone with your desktop computer.
• Copy (rather than synchronize) files between your Smartphone and your desktop
computer.
• Synchronize on a schedule to control when synchronization occurs.
• Select which types of information are synchronized and specify how much information
is synchronized. For example, you can choose how many weeks of past appointments
to synchronize.
Setting up ActiveSync Desktop Client
Using Microsoft ActiveSync desktop client, you can synchronize information on the
Smartphone with your desktop computer. This section explains how to:
• Install ActiveSync desktop client on your desktop computer.
• Create a partnership between your desktop computer and the Smartphone.
• Set up a synchronization schedule.
Installing ActiveSync Desktop Client and Creating a
Partnership
Before you can synchronize information with a desktop computer, you must first install
ActiveSync desktop client on your desktop computer, use the Sync Cradle and mini USB
cable to connect your Smartphone to your desktop computer, and then create a
partnership between your Smartphone and your desktop computer.
ActiveSync Desktop Client
140
You can install ActiveSync desktop client on the desktop computer from the i920/i930
companion CD.
As soon as ActiveSync desktop client installation completes, the New Partnership
Wizard automatically starts. This wizard helps you set up a partnership between your
Smartphone and your desktop computer.
When you create a partnership, you specify your synchronization settings; for example,
the type of information to synchronize, such as E-mail, Contacts, Calendar, or Tasks.
Once a partnership is set up, ActiveSync desktop client on your desktop computer
recognizes your Smartphone when you connect it, and automatically applies the
synchronization settings you specified.
When you finish using the wizard, the first synchronization begins automatically. When
synchronization completes, you will notice that the information from your desktop
computer that you selected now appears on your Smartphone.
Install ActiveSync desktop client

Insert the CD that came with your Smartphone into your computer. The installation
screen opens.
Click Getting Started with Windows Mobile.
Click Start Here.
Click Install ActiveSync.
Click Install.
Follow the instructions.
Note: Do not connect your Smartphone to your computer until you have installed
ActiveSync desktop client on your computer.
Assemble the Sync Cradle and connect the mini USB cable
See “The Sync Cradle” on page 14.
Create a partnership
Tip: Before you copy your Outlook Contacts to your Smartphone Contact list, it is a
good idea to clean up your Outlook Contacts list to avoid duplication of Contacts
that may already be on your Smartphone, and to assure that your Contacts are
alphabetized consistently with the Contacts on your Smartphone. Your Outlook
Contacts are combined in the same list as your Smartphone Contacts.
After you assemble the Sync Cradle and use the mini USB cable to connect your
Smartphone to your desktop computer, you are ready to set up a partnership between
your Smartphone and your desktop computer.
1 If you have not already done so, press p for 2 to 3 seconds to power up your
Smartphone.
2 When your desktop computer detects the USB connection, it will start the ActiveSync
New Partnership Wizard. Follow the instructions on the screen.
After you finish using the wizard, your data will begin to synchronize between your
desktop computer and your Smartphone.
ActiveSync Desktop Client
141
Change ActiveSync Desktop Client Settings Later
If you want to change ActiveSync desktop client settings for synchronizing with a desktop
computer, use ActiveSync desktop client on the desktop computer. For more
information, see “Modifying the Amount of Information Synchronized” in ActiveSync Help
on your desktop computer.
If you want to change ActiveSync settings for synchronizing wirelessly with your
Exchange server, use ActiveSync on your Smartphone, as described in “Setting Up
Wireless E-mail” on page 52.
Creating a Synchronization Schedule
You can create a schedule for automatically synchronizing information on your
Smartphone with your desktop computer. To set up a synchronization schedule with your
desktop computer, you must use ActiveSync desktop client on your desktop computer.
For instructions, see “Scheduling Synchronizing / Change desktop synchronization
schedule” in ActiveSync Help on your desktop computer.
Synchronizing by Using an Infrared Connection
You can connect your Smartphone to another mobile device or your desktop computer
by using an infrared connection. This method is ideal for changing quickly between
multiple devices because there are no cables or adapters to connect.
For more information about synchronizing by using an infrared connection or other
connection types, see ActiveSync Help on your desktop computer.
Deciding Which Information to Synchronize
By default, ActiveSync desktop client does not automatically synchronize all types of
Outlook information. You can use ActiveSync desktop client options to turn
synchronization for specific information types on and off. This section provides an
overview of the types of Outlook information you can synchronize.
Synchronizing Outlook E-mail
When you select Inbox for synchronization in ActiveSync desktop client, e-mail
messages are synchronized as part of the general synchronization process. During
synchronization, the following events occur:
• Messages are copied from the Outlook Inbox folder on your desktop computer to the
Inbox folder of the Outlook E-mail account on your Smartphone.
• By default, when synchronizing your Outlook E-mail account with your desktop
computer, you receive only messages from the last 3 days and the first 500 bytes of
each new message.
• The messages on your Smartphone and on your desktop computer are linked. When
you delete a message on your Smartphone, it is deleted from your desktop computer
the next time you synchronize, and vice versa.
• Messages in subfolders of other Outlook e-mail folders are synchronized only if the
folders have been selected for synchronization in your Outlook E-mail account on your
Smartphone.
Note: Text messages are not received in Messaging through synchronization.
ActiveSync Desktop Client
142
Synchronizing Calendar
Calendar items stored on your Smartphone can be synchronized with calendar items
stored on your desktop computer. By default, Calendar items from the last 2 weeks are
synchronized.
Calendar items created on your Smartphone are copied to your desktop computer, and
vice versa. Similarly, Calendar items that are deleted from your Smartphone are deleted
from your desktop computer during synchronization, and vice versa.
Synchronizing Contacts
Contacts stored on your Smartphone can be synchronized with contacts stored on your
desktop computer. By default, all of your contacts are synchronized.
Contacts created on your Smartphone are copied to your desktop computer, and vice
versa. Similarly, contacts that are deleted from your Smartphone are deleted from your
desktop computer during synchronization, and vice versa.
Synchronizing Tasks
Tasks stored on your Smartphone can be synchronized with tasks stored on your
desktop computer. Task synchronization is automatically selected in ActiveSync desktop
client. By default, all of your incomplete tasks are synchronized.
Tasks created on your Smartphone are copied to your desktop computer during
synchronization, and vice versa. Similarly, tasks that are deleted from your Smartphone
are deleted from your desktop computer during synchronization, and vice versa.
Note: Tasks can be synchronized only with your desktop computer; they cannot be
synchronized with a server running Microsoft Exchange.
ActiveSync Error Messages
If your information cannot be successfully synchronized, you will see an error message
on your Smartphone. To help troubleshoot the problem, you can view more information
about the error.

GPS Enabled
158
GPS Enabled
Your Smartphone’s GPS Enabled feature uses information from Global Positioning
System (GPS) satellites orbiting the Earth to determine the approximate geographical
location of your Smartphone, 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. Also, nearby radio and electronic equipment may block or interfere
with reception from these distant satellites. SEE: “IMPORTANT: Things to Keep in
Mind”.
When you make a 911 emergency call, the GPS feature of your Smartphone can help
emergency personnel locate you if your Smartphone 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 Smartphone’s display.
Java applications loaded on your Smartphone can also request your location. If your
Smartphone 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 Smartphone 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 Smartphone 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
• When your GPS antenna is covered (for example, by your hand or other object)
or facing the ground
• Some radios, entertainment equipment and other electronic devices may
generate signals that can block or interfere with the GPS receiver ability to
receive the distant satellite signals, particularly when such devices are
operating in close proximity to the GPS receiver. Therefore, in a 911 call, or
when otherwise using the GPS location function, always move your phone away
from any such devices.
• In temperature extremes outside the operating limits of your Smartphone
Walking or driving very slowly may also substantially reduce GPS performance.
GPS Enabled
159
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 Smartphone 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 161.
While the GPS feature of your Smartphone 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 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 Smartphone uses assistance information from the
Smartphone network to improve the speed and accuracy of your Smartphone’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 Smartphone 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 Smartphone.
Making an Emergency Call
Dial 911 to be connected to an emergency response center.
When you make an emergency 911 call, the GPS feature of your Smartphone begins to
seek information to calculate your approximate location. It will take the GPS feature of
your Smartphone some time to determine your approximate location. Even where
your Smartphone has good access to sufficient 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 158), 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 Smartphone has access to signals from more GPS satellites, your
location will be determined faster and more accurately than if your Smartphone has
access to signals from fewer GPS satellites.
If your Smartphone does not have adequate access to GPS satellites signals, the
location of the nearest cell tower in contact with your Smartphone is automatically made
available to the emergency response center, if the center has the capability to receive
such information.
GPS Enabled

See “Enhancing GPS Performance” on page 161 for information on how to help your
Smartphone determine your location.
Viewing Your Approximate Location
You can calculate your approximate location, which is automatically saved in your phone
for you to view again later. The next time you calculate your approximate location, the
new location replaces the old one.
Calculate your approximate location
1 From the Home screen, select Start.
2 Select Accessories and then GPS Location.
3 Select Refresh.
It may take your Smartphone several minutes to complete the process of determining
your location. During this time, a message usually appears on your Smartphone’s display
saying your Smartphone is scanning for satellites. For tips on getting the best location
calculation, see “Enhancing GPS Performance”.
After your approximate location is calculated, the Smartphone displays the following
information:
• 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.
• The number of satellites used to calculate the location. In general, more satellites
make for better accuracy.
• The time (as Greenwich Mean Time) and date that the location was last calculated
Each time approximate location of your Smartphone is calculated, the latest location
information is stored in your Smartphone and remains there even when your
Smartphone is powered off. You will see this information the next time you go to the GPS
Location screen.
If you received a phone call or alert while attempting to determine your location, the GPS
Location screen will disappear, but your Smartphone will continue attempting to
determine its location. If it is successful, the new location information will be displayed
the next time you view the GPS Location screen.

Enhancing GPS Performance
Sometimes the GPS feature of your Smartphone 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 Smartphone 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
Smartphone’s display, you will see a message indicating that your Smartphone cannot
access satellites.
To improve accuracy and increase your chances of a successful calculation, do the
following while your Smartphone is determining your approximate location:
• Stay in the open. The GPS feature works best where there is nothing between your
Smartphone 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 Smartphone antenna.
• Hold your Smartphone to enhance reception. Signals from GPS satellites are
transmitted to your GPS antenna, which is in your Smartphone antenna. Hold your
Smartphone 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
• Move away from electronic devices. Radios, entertainment devices, and other
electronic devices may generate interfering signals that may prevent GPS receiver
operation if they are in close proximity to the phone. Move your phone away from such
devices when using the GPS-Enabled feature.
• Stand still. If possible, stand still until your Smartphone is finished determining your
location. Moving your Smartphone at a walking pace while your Smartphone is
calculating your approximate location may substantially decrease GPS performance.
• In a car. When using the GPS Enabled feature in a car, position your Smartphone 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 Smartphone at a walking pace decreases GPS
performance, moving it at the speed of a moving car does not.
GPS Enabled
162
• Stay in network coverage. Depending on who your service provider is, the network will
provide your Smartphone with information that helps determine your location more
quickly and accurately.
Updating Satellite Almanac Data
Another way to keep the GPS feature of your Smartphone 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 Smartphone. Keeping
your satellite almanac up to date helps your Smartphone determine your location more
quickly.
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 Smartphone 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 Smartphone does not rely upon the
almanac to determine your location.
If your satellite almanac data is out of date, your Smartphone may prompt you to update
it. Follow the instructions that appear on the Smartphone’s display. You may be asked to
go to a web site or call a customer care number.
Setting Privacy Options
Your Smartphone’s GPS privacy options control whether Java applications on your
Smartphone or other software applications may view the location of your
Smartphone.You may set your Smartphone to one of these GPS privacy options.
Note: Privacy options do not apply to the transmission of location information during
emergency 911 calls.

Using GPS with Map Software
You can use the GPS feature of your Smartphone 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 Smartphone 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 Smartphone to your laptop (or other device) with a serial data
cable and set your Smartphone to transmit data (see “Getting Started with Map
Software” on page 164). Your Smartphone then provides your approximate location to
the device running the map software, which displays your location on a map. Your
Smartphone provides an updated location every second and the map software displays
your changing location on its map.
See “Enhancing GPS Performance” on page 161 for more details on obtaining good
location information.
GPS Enabled

Note: Because your Smartphone is continuously determining your location, using the
GPS feature of your Smartphone with map software uses the Smartphone’s
battery power quickly.
Software Compatibility
Your Smartphone sends location information to your laptop or other device using the
standard National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA) format. Your Smartphone
supports output messages in NMEA-0183 format and supports the following NMEA-0183

This chapter explains how to browse the Web using Microsoft® Pocket Internet Explorer.
Browsing the Web
To help you get started, we have added Nextel’s Wireless Web to provide you access to
news, weather, traffic, sports and entertainment information. With content providers such
as Google, CNN, ESPN and more, you can stay in touch, informed and in control, all
from your Nextel phone.
With Pocket Internet Explorer, the Favorites list is displayed as the main screen instead
of a home page, so you can easily go to your favorite Web sites. In addition to Nextel
Wireless Web links, you can add your own favorites to this list for Web sites you
frequently visit. You can view your Favorites list from any Web page by selecting
Favorites.
Using Pocket Internet Explorer, you can also browse the World Wide Web on your
Smartphone. While you are surfing the World Wide Web, realize some sites may not
display properly with Pocket Internet Explorer. Nextel Wireless Web sites have been

Windows Media Player
179
Windows Media Player
Microsoft® Windows Media® Player 10 Mobile for Smartphone let you play digital audio
and video files that are stored on your Smartphone or on the Web.
By default, Windows Media Player can play the following types of files:
• Windows Media Audio
• Windows Media Video
• MP3
This includes files with the extensions .asf, .wma, .wmv, and .mp3. If the manufacturer of
your Smartphone has installed additional components, your version of Windows Media
Player might be capable of playing additional file types.
In addition to Windows Mobile™-based Smartphones, Windows Media Player is
available on other operating environments, including desktop computers running the
Windows or Macintosh operating systems and Windows Mobile-based Pocket PCs.
In this documentation, the version of Windows Media Player for Windows-based desktop
computers is called the “desktop Player” and the version for Smartphone is called the
“Smartphone Player.”
About the Screens and Menus
Windows Media Player 10 Mobile for Smartphone has 3 primary screens:
Playback screen. The default screen that displays the playback controls (such as Play,
Pause, Next, Previous, and Volume), the album art window, and the video window. You
can change the appearance of this screen by choosing a different skin if additional skins
are installed on your Smartphone.
Now Playing screen. The screen that displays the Now Playing playlist. This special
playlist indicates the currently playing file and any files that are “queued up” to play next.
Library screen. The screen that lets you quickly find your audio files, video files, and
playlists. It contains categories such as My Music, My Video, My TV, and My Playlists.
At the bottom of each screen is a menu called Menu. The commands on this menu
change depending upon which screen you are viewing.
Playback Screen Menu
When you are viewing the Playback screen, these commands appear on Menu.

About Libraries
The library contains links to your audio files, video files, and playlists. As in the desktop
Player, it lets you sort your content by criteria such as artist name, album title, or genre.
Unlike the desktop Player, the Smartphone Player can have multiple libraries. Each
library represents an available storage location. For example, if you store some content
in the internal storage location on the Smartphone (known as random access memory or
RAM), the My Device library contains links to those files.
If you also store content on removable storage cards, such as an SD card, you will have
additional libraries for each of those cards.
* To purchase an SD card go to sprint.com or call 1-800-NEXTEL6.
Windows Media Player
181
On the Library screen, you can switch between the My Device library and any other
libraries that are available to your Smartphone.
When you turn on your Smartphone and open Windows Media Player, the program
automatically searches the internal storage location of your Smartphone for compatible
digital media files. If it finds any, they are added to the My Device library.
Similarly, when you insert a removable storage card* into your Smartphone, Windows
Media Player asks you if you want to search it for content. If you agree, Windows Media
Player adds any content it finds to a Mounted Volume library.
If you copy new files to your Smartphone or storage card* and they do not appear in the
library, you can manually update the library by using the Update Library command.
About Synchronization
Use the Sync feature in the latest version of the desktop Player (Windows Media Player
10 or later) to automatically copy your favorite audio files, video files, and playlists from
your desktop Player library to your Smartphone Player library every time you connect
your Smartphone to your computer.
For more information about synchronization, see the desktop Player Help.
About Playlists
A playlist is a list of digital media files that play in a specified order. By using playlists,
you can group audio and video files together for convenient playback.
For example, in the desktop Player, you can create a playlist of upbeat songs to listen to
when you exercise or a playlist of soothing songs to enjoy during a long flight. When you
synchronize with the latest desktop Player (Windows Media Player 10 or later), your
favorite playlists are automatically copied to your Smartphone.
You can also create a temporary playlist, called Now Playing, directly on your
Smartphone. It is available from the Now Playing menu. It lists the currently playing file,
as well as any files that have been “queued up” to play next. The contents of the Now
Playing list are not saved on your Smartphone when you power it off.
About Licenses and Protected Files
Some digital media files (such as songs downloaded from online stores, including
Napster and MusicNow) are encrypted to prevent the files from being unlawfully
distributed or shared.
Content providers, such as online stores, use a technology called digital rights
management (DRM) to encrypt the files. During the encryption process, the content
provider creates a license which specifies how and when the file can be used.
For example, a content provider could create a license that allows you to play a certain
file on your computer, but not on your Smartphone. Or a content provider could create a
license that allows you to play a certain file on your Smartphone, but only for a month.
Files that have licenses associated with them are called protected files.
Windows Media Player
182
If you want to copy a protected file from your desktop computer to your Smartphone, use
the desktop Player to synchronize the file to your Smartphone (instead of dragging the
file from a folder on your desktop computer to a folder on your Smartphone or to storage
card* in a storage card reader, for example). This will ensure that the license is copied
along with the protected file.
* To purchase an SD card go to sprint.com or call 1-800-NEXTEL6.
For more information about synchronizing files to your Smartphone and other devices,
see the desktop Player Help.
Note: You can view the protection status of a file by checking its file properties (select
Menu, and then select Properties).
Supported Audio and Video Codecs
High-quality digital media files can require a large amount of storage space. To minimize
file size, digital media files are often compressed by using software called a codec (short
for compressor/decompressor). To play the file, it must be decompressed by using the
same codec that compressed the file.
Windows Media Player 10 Mobile for Smartphone can play files that have been
compressed by using any of the following audio and video codecs. You can determine
which codecs a file uses by checking its file properties (select Menu, and then select
Properties).
Audio Codecs
• Microsoft Windows Media Audio codec versions 1.0, 2.0, 7, 8, and 9.
Although Windows Media Player for Smartphone supports all the variants of the
Windows Media Audio 9 codec (including the Windows Media Audio 9, Windows Media
Audio 9 Professional, Windows Media Audio 9 Voice, and Windows Media Audio 9
Lossless codecs), the following variants are only partially supported:
• Windows Media Audio 9 Professional codec. Multiple channels are combined into a
stereo mix during playback. Depending upon the audio playback capabilities of your
Smartphone, content with an audio sampling rate higher than 48 kilohertz (KHz) might
be played as 48 KHz.
• Windows Media Audio 9 Lossless codec. Depending upon the audio playback
capabilities of your Smartphone, content with an audio sampling rate higher than 48
KHz might be played as 48 KHz.
Video Codecs
•
•
•
•
Microsoft Windows Media Video codec versions 7, 8, and 9.
Microsoft Windows Media Video 9 Image codec versions 1.0 and 2.0.
Microsoft MPEG-4 codec version 2.0 and 3.0.
ISO MPEG-4 video codec version 1.0.
Note: Windows Media Player 10 Mobile for Smartphone does not support any version
of the Windows Media Video Screen codec.
