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).
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.
5
TDMA.book Page 6 Thursday, October 29, 1998 9:52 AM
Safety Information
Tips on Efficient Operation
For your phone to operate 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
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 it is
inside your pocket, purse, or other container with metal objects. Your
batteries are packed with a protective cover. When the battery is
detached from the phone, please use this cover for storing your
batteries.
Driving
Check the laws and regulations on the use of wireless telephones in the
areas where your drive. Always obey them. Also, if using your phone
while driving, please:
•
•
•
Give full attention to driving—driving safely is your first
responsibility.
Use hands-free 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 electronic 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 (6") inches 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:
6
TDMA.book Page 7 Thursday, October 29, 1998 9:52 AM
•
•
•
•
Should ALWAYS keep the phone more than six inches from
their pacemaker when the phone is on.
Should not carry the phone in a breast pocket.
Should use the ear opposite the pacemaker to minimize the
potential for interference.
If you have any reason to suspect that interference is taking
place, turn your phone off immediately.
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.
Aircraft
FCC regulations prohibit phone usage while in the air. Switch off your
phone before boarding an aircraft.

TDMA.book Page 8 Thursday, October 29, 1998 9:52 AM
Safety Information
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 and 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 would normally 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.

About Your Batteries
Getting Started
Your Digital StarTAC phone can use either Lithium Ion (LiIon)
or Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) batteries. Batteries are
available in these sizes: Slim, Standard, and Extra Capacity.
Your phone can use two batteries at the same time. You can
use any single battery or battery combination to fit your
needs. You can even extend your talk-time by attaching an
auxiliary battery at any time, without interrupting your call.
Battery Talk- and Standby-Times
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.

Keep in Mind: 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.
For a complete measure of talk-time or standby-time, simply
combine the time shown for your main battery to the time
shown for your auxiliary battery.
All times depend on the network configuration, signal
strength, and the features selected. (Times are approximate
for the first 500 charging cycles.)
11
TDMA.book Page 12 Thursday, October 29, 1998 9:52 AM
Your phone will operate more efficiently in Digital mode. If
the D icon is on, your phone’s performance will be reflected
in the digital section of the table on page 11. If the D icon is
not on, refer to the Analog section of the table.

Using Caller ID
Caller ID allows you to view the number of the calling party

StarTAC™ cellular phone also stores the telephone numbers
of the last 20 incoming calls.
Phone Options
If the caller’s phone number matches a phone number stored
in the phone’s memory, the phone automatically displays the
name associated with that phone number. The display of the
name-tag or phone number is controlled through your setting
of the Name Preference feature. (See ”Phone Book Display
Preferences” on page 52.)
If you subscribe to call waiting and receive a call while
another call is in progress, you hear a call waiting tone and
the caller’s number appears on the display. The number will
automatically be stored and can be viewed after ending the
call, using the procedure described on the next page.

TDMA.book Page 76 Thursday, October 29, 1998 9:52 AM
If the caller has restricted transmission of the phone number,
your phone will display Private. If the Calling Number ID
information is not available to the cellular network, your
phone will display No ID. This information will not be in the
Caller ID list as one of the last 20 incoming calls.
You can store any number contained in your Caller ID memory
to a memory location in the same way you would save any
phone number. Once the correct number is displayed, press

77
TDMA.book Page 78 Thursday, October 29, 1998 9:52 AM
When your phone has two numbers, both are designated as
your home system but only one number can be active at any

number and home system are currently active:
Non-wireline type with phone number 1
A1
Non-wireline type with phone number 2
A2

Reference Information
Accessory Options
An exciting line of StarTAC 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 as long as you like. 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.
See page 19-22 for battery talk-times and standby-times.
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.
88
TDMA.book Page 89 Thursday, October 29, 1998 9:52 AM
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’s easy to
rotate batteries and always have a charged spare.
Holster
The StarTAC phone is so small and light, it’s positively
wearable. Slip it in and clip it on—for the ultimate in hightech fashion.
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.
When you use the headset, your phone’s intelligent circuitry
automatically enables the Multiple Key Answer feature
(page 82), so you can answer calls with any key on the side
of your phone. You can even use the Smart Button to end
calls. You’ll never need to open your phone to take a call.
89
TDMA.book Page 90 Thursday, October 29, 1998 9:52 AM
With the headset in place, closing the phone will not end a
call. This allows you to store the phone conveniently during
the call. To end a call while using the headset, press the
Smart Button twice or press º.
PCMCIA Modems
These compact modems are made for mobility and plug
directly into the bottom of your StarTAC phone, so you can
send and receive FAXes, e-mail and data. The PCMCIA
modem works with data devices using a standard PCMCIA
Type II slot.
Hands-Free Vehicle Kit
The optional Hands-Free Kits give 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 the phone and charges its battery
whenever your car’s engine is running. An optional external
antenna can improve your signal reception and boost
performance.

Troubleshooting
Q.
A.
I pressed the power button, but nothing happened. What’s wrong with my phone?
Check that you have installed a battery and that the battery is charged. See pages 11-18 for more
information about batteries and charging. Be sure to press and hold ¡.
Q.
A.
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 will 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.
Also remember that battery performance varies greatly between digital mode and analog mode. See the
table on page 11.
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 page 56 for more information on this
feature.)
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.
Q.
A.
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) for
assistance. (See ”Using Lock/Security Features” on page 63 for more information on Security Features.)
Q.
A.
I tried to place a call and received a fast busy signal.
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 æ before ending your call attempt, or press
º and try the call again later. (See ”Redialing a Number” on page 25 for more information on redialing.)
Q.
A.
I tried to place a call and received an alternating high/low tone.
This sound means 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 indicator goes out 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 you’re clear of any obstructions such as bridges, parking garages, or tall buildings.
Q.
A.
I am in my home service area, but the Roam indicator is on.
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 ‰, »,¬ to switch to the other number. See
”Switching Between Numbers” on page 77 for more information on multiple phone numbers.
Q.
A.
I tried to listen to my Voice Mail (or use a paging service, a calling card, etc.) but nothing happened.
You have probably turned off the Scratchpad tones. Place your call, enter the access numbers when
prompted by the recording, then press ‰,æ. To avoid this problem in the future, follow the directions
on page 62 to turn the Scratchpad tones on.
Q.
A.
What if my phone beeps several times after power up?
The phone is programmed for Call ReceiveOff. See ”Blocking Incoming Calls” on page 81 for information.
Q.
A.
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 62 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 page 47, 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.
Q.
A.
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).
