Safety Information
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 hand-held
wireless phones. Those guidelines are consistent with the safety
standards previously set by both U.S. and international standards
bodies:
• ANSI C95.1 (1992)*
• NCRP Report 86 (1986)*
• 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 Position:
Hold the phone as you would any other telephone, with the antenna
pointed up and over your shoulder.
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.

Safety Information
Caution: All batteries can cause property damage, injury or burns if
a conductive material, such as jewelry, keys or beaded chains,
touches exposed terminals. The material may complete an electrical
circuit and become quite hot. To protect against such unwanted current drain, exercise care in handling any charged battery, particularly when placing it inside your pocket, purse or other container
with metal objects. When the battery is detached from the phone:
your battery is packed with a protective cover.; please use this cover
for storing your battery when not in use.
Batteries
Check the laws and regulations on the use of wireless telephones in
the areas where you drive. Always obey them. Also, if using your
phone while driving, please:
Driving
• 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.
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.
Electronic
Devices
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:
• 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.
• If you have any reason to suspect that interference is taking place,
turn your phone OFF immediately.
7
Safety Information
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 they are 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
8
FCC regulations prohibit using your phone while in the air. Switch
OFF your phone before boarding an aircraft.
Safety Information
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.
Turn your phone OFF when in any area with a potentially explosive
atmosphere, and obey all signs and instructions. Sparks in such
areas could cause an explosion or fire resulting in bodily injury or
even death.
Blasting
Areas
Potentially
Explosive
Atmospheres
Areas with a potentially explosive atmosphere are often, but not
always, clearly marked. They include fueling areas such as gasoline
stations; below deck on boats; fuel or chemical transfer or storage
facilities; areas where fuel odors are present, i.e. 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.
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.

Introduction to Batteries
Battery Covers
Your phone’s batteries are shipped in an uncharged state with
protective covers on them. You should save these covers to store
and carry batteries when they are not in use. The cover prevents

the risk of injury or damage from a short circuit.
To begin using your phone, just slip a battery out of its protective
cover, install and charge the battery.

Charging the Battery
Using the Internal Rapid Charger
Believe it or not, there’s a battery charger built right into your
phone! It’s called the internal charger and it’s a quick and easy
way to charge your phone’s battery. To make use of the internal
charger, all you need is one of the three available adapters,
either a standard AC adapter, a rapid rate AC adapter, or a cigarette lighter adapter.
Keep in mind: When the internal charger is in use and the
phone is ON, you can still place and receive calls. Just remember,
talking on the phone requires energy, so your phone may not
charge while the call is in progress.
1. Attach
Adapter
to Phone
Plug the AC or cigarette lighter adapter into the
accessory connector on the bottom of your
phone as shown, with the release tab facing up.
2. Plug In
Adapter
Plug the adapter into the appropriate power
source.

Charging the Battery
Getting Started
The Battery Indicator
In the upper right corner of your phone’s display, there is a battery indicator filled with three segments. The more segments
you see, the greater the charge.
• The border of the battery icon will flash during charging.
• When both batteries are fully charged, the battery icon will
stop flashing and become solid.
Expert Performance ( E•P™) Charging System
Your phone uses the Motorola E•P Charging System. This innovative technology allows your phone to communicate with the battery
and tailor the charging cycle to get the best performance possible.
When you power up the phone or install a new battery, you may
see: Invalid Battery. This means your phone can’t communicate with the attached battery. Check the label on the battery–if it isn’t a Motorola original, the battery may not have the
appropriate circuitry to communicate with the phone. Otherwise, try removing and attaching the battery again.
We recommend that you use Motorola original batteries and
accessories and that you store your batteries in the protective
cover when not in use.
Battery Storage and Disposal
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 local recycling center for
a battery recycler near you. Never dispose of batteries in fire.
Caution: To prevent injuries or burns, do not allow metal
objects to contact or short circuit the battery terminals.
17
Charging the Battery
Using the Desktop Charger
The desktop charger’s front pocket can charge batteries while
they are attached to your phone, and the rear pocket can charge
batteries separately.
If you have a desktop charger:
Plug the AC adapter into the back of the charger,
with the release tab facing up.
2. Plug In
Adapter
Plug the other end of the AC adapter into a
wall socket.
3. Insert
Phone
Insert the phone into the front pocket with a
main and/or auxiliary battery attached.

Charging the Battery
Getting Started
Desktop Charger Indicators
The three LED indicators on the left front of the desktop charger
let you know the current state of any charging batteries. The first
light provides information on the main battery attached to the
phone, the second on the attached auxiliary battery, and the third
provides information on any battery loaded in the rear pocket.
• Red means the battery is charging.
• Flashing yellow means the battery is waiting to be charged.
• Green means the battery is charged within 90% of its capacity
and can be used. An additional hour of charging will bring
your battery up to 100% capacity.
• Flashing red means the battery is damaged and can’t be
charged.
Tip:
When you
charge the
main and an
auxiliary battery, the main
battery will be
charged first.
Desktop Charger Charging Times
The time it takes for your battery to obtain a full charge is
affected by a variety of factors, including:
• Temperature Batteries should be at or near room
temperature when charging. To prolong battery life
and charge capacity, avoid exposing your batteries 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.
• Inactivity New batteries, or batteries that have been stored
for long periods of time, may not rapid charge properly. In
these instances, the battery requires an overnight charge.
• Extended Usage Over extended periods of time, batteries
gradually wear down and require longer charging times.
This is normal. If you’ve been charging your battery regularly
and notice a decrease in talk-time or an increase in charging
time, then it’s probably time to purchase a new battery.

Using Memory
Do you have places to go and people to see? Too many phone
numbers to remember? Let your phone remember them for you.
Your phone’s internal Phone Book can store up to 99 names and
numbers for easy access on the go.
In this chapter you will learn how to:
• store names and numbers into the Phone Book.
• recall phone numbers from memory.
• dial in a flash with the Super Speed Dial and Turbo Dial™
functions.
• simplify automated calling systems and credit card calls.
Note: Follow these symbols as a guide for using the keys on the

Making the Most of Memory
Using Memory
Each phone number is stored in a “memory location” numbered
01-99. You can arrange your Phone Book for convenient recall
by storing related numbers in groups of ten. For example, store
your ten most frequently called numbers in locations 01-09, then
you can use the Turbo Dial™ keys to call them with the push of a
key. You could store business phone numbers in locations 10-19,
family numbers in 20-29, friends in 30-39, and so on.
You can also store names to help identify phone numbers. Later
you can easily recall numbers either by memory location or by
name. If someone you know has more than one phone number,
you could quickly recall the number you need by storing it with
a descriptive name, for example:
Memory location
Name

Pause Dialing
When you call automated systems like Voice Mail or bank by
phone, a recorded message prompts you for PIN numbers,
account numbers, etc. Pause Dialing can make using automated systems easy by allowing you to store these numbers in
the same memory location as the automated system’s access
number. Just separate each set of numbers with a “pause”– a
special character that tells your phone to wait before sending
additional numbers.
Storing a Number with Pause Dialing
The pause occupies a one-digit space in your phone’s memory.
Once you have entered a string of numbers and pauses (up to 32
digits, including pauses), store the string in the same way you
store other entries.
Tip:
Always store
your Voice

automated system.
2. Insert

your PIN number. If the automated system
requires a * or #, enter those symbols, too.

Using Pause Dialing
Once stored, simply recall the entry and place the call. All of the
digits you’ve stored will be recalled, but your phone will only send
the tones for the set of numbers before the first pause.
Enter the two-digit memory location where you
stored your Pause Dialing number and press &
hold a or press æ. Your phone will dial the
access number and wait for your input when it
reaches the first pause.

Using Memory Linking
Each memory location holds up to 32 digits, including pauses.
Some automated systems, however, may require you to enter
more than 32 digits. In these cases, using Pause Dialing is still

and recall the second set of digits as you need them.

you time in dialing. The Number Character saves a place in the

a few keystrokes.

An exciting line of accessories can enhance and personalize your digital
cellular experience.
Lithium Ion Batteries
Motorola’s Lithium Ion (LiIon) batteries are high energy-density batteries that offer
increased capacity and are lighter in weight than similar sized Nickel Cadmium and
Nickel Metal Hydride batteries.
Nickel Metal Hydride Batteries
Nickel Metal Hydride batteries (NiMH) are high-capacity batteries that offer up to
30% more talk-time than comparable Nickel Cadmium batteries. To help achieve
maximum life and capacity for your NiMH battery, do not leave the battery in the
charger for more than 24 hours, and use only Motorola-approved chargers.
Cigarette Lighter Adapter
Lets you plug into a reliable power source on the road. Uses your car’s battery to
power your phone and rapid charge its battery at the same time. The Cigarette
Lighter Adapter will not overcharge your battery and contains circuitry to protect
against overvoltage and power surges in the vehicle. In some cars, the engine must
be running in order for the cigarette lighter to operate.
100
Accessory Options
Desktop Charger (AC Adapter required)
This charger has two pockets to charge up to two
batteries simultaneously. Each pocket has its
own sequential charging status LEDs. The desktop charger’s front pocket can charge batteries
while they are attached to your phone, and the
rear pocket can charge batteries separately. It’s
easy to rotate batteries and always have a
charged spare. For use with Lithium Ion, Nickel
Cadmium and Nickel Metal Hydride batteries.
Holster
Your StarTAC™ phone is so small and light, it’s positively wearable. Slip it in the holster and clip the
holster on– for the ultimate in high-tech 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. See pages 92-94 for Call
Options that make using a headset with your phone even
more convenient.
PCMCIA Modems
101
Reference
These compact modems are made for mobility, with cable attachments that plug
directly into the bottom of your Motorola cellular phone. They support fax, email, and data transmission. The PCMCIA modems work with data devices using
a standard PCMCIA Type II slot.
Accessory Options
Hands-Free Vehicle Kit
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 rapid charges its battery whenever your
car’s engine is running.
Keep in mind: Motorola offers a 3-Watt Vehicular Kit, which includes a 3-watt
booster for analog signals. Since it is a digital cellular phone, your phone is NOT
compatible with the 3-Watt Kit.
Important: We recommend you use genuine Motorola batteries and accessories.
Under its cellular telephone warranty, Motorola specifically disclaims any responsibility for damage caused by the use of portable cellular telephone accessories not manufactured by Motorola.
Zero Install Car Kit
For the quickest and easiest mobile solution, use the ZIP Car Kit. Plug the adapter
end into you car’s cigarette lighter and the other end into your phone’s accessory
connector. Then attach the microphone and you’re ready to go!
102
Troubleshooting
Q. I pressed the power button, but nothing happened. What’s wrong with my
phone?
A. Check that you have installed a battery and that the battery is charged. See
page 14 for information about installing your battery.
Q. The display says Locked. How do I unlock my phone?
A. Try entering the last three digits of your cellular number. If that doesn’t
work, try using 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. For more information on your phone’s security features, see the
Lock/Security chapter, page 78.
Q. My battery didn’t last as long as I expected. What can I do to extend battery
life?
A. 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.
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 of thumb, always take your
phone with you when you leave your car.
Reference
103
Troubleshooting
Q. When I turned on my phone, it beeped and the screen displayed: In v ali d
B a t t e r y. What’s going on?
A. Your phone uses the Motorola E•P Charging System. This innovative technology allows your phone to communicate with the battery and tailor the
charging cycle to get the best performance possible.
If your phone can’t communicate with the attached battery, you will see:
Invalid Battery. Check the label on the battery–if it isn’t a Motorola
original, the battery may not have the appropriate circuitry to communicate
with the phone. Otherwise, try removing and attaching the battery again.
We recommend that you use Motorola original batteries and accessories and
that you store your batteries in the protective cover when not in use.
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 the Smart Button or press æ before ending your call
attempt, or press º and try the call again later. See page 95 for more
information on redialing.
104
Troubleshooting.
Q. I tried to place a call but 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
NS indicator disappears 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: 1
.
Call Unanswered
What happened?
A. Someone tried to call you while you were in an area where the cellular signal was weak. Press Ç to clear your display, extend your phone’s antenna,
and avoid obstructions like tunnels, parking garages and tall buildings
whenever possible.
Q. My phone was stolen. What should I report and to whom?
A. Report a stolen phone to the police and to your Service Provider (the company that sends you your monthly cellular service bills).
