INFORMATION
Because of federal export regulations applicable to
this Motorola phone, it cannot be sold for export from
the U.S.A. or Canada. Please read the following important notice.
EXPORT LAW ASSURANCES: This product is controlled under
the export regulations of the United States of America and Canada.
This product cannot be exported from the United States or Canada
without an export license issued by the U.S. Department of
Commerce. In addition to the U.S. license, if this product is to be

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).

Safety Information
Use only the supplied or an approved replacement antenna.
Unauthorized antennas, modifications, or attachments could
damage the phone and may violate FCC regulations.
Antenna
Care
Normal Position:
Hold the phone as you would any other telephone, with the antenna
pointed up and over your shoulder.
Phone
Operation
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.
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.
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:
Batteries
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
7
Safety Information
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.
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.

Safety Information
Posted Facilities
Turn your phone OFF in any facility where posted notices so require.
FCC regulations prohibit using your phone while in the air. Switch
OFF your phone before boarding an aircraft.
Aircraft
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.
Blasting
Areas
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.
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.
Potentially
Explosive
Atmospheres
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.
Vehicles
Equipped
with Air
Bags
Your wireless radiotelephone is designed for excellent durability
under normal use conditions. Protect your wireless telephone from
water damage that could result from spills or excessive exposure to
rain. Never submerge your wireless phone.
Equipment
Care
Cleaning of this product should only be done with a damp cloth.
The use of chemical cleaners may harm the finish and integrity of
the radio housing and is not recommended.

Introduction to Batteries
Each battery is shipped in an uncharged state with a protective
clip on it. Before you can use your phone, you will need to
remove the clip from the battery and charge it.
Battery Clips
It is a good idea to save the protective clip to store and carry the
battery when not in use. The clip prevents objects from touching
the battery terminals, thereby reducing the risk of injury or
damage from a short circuit.
Removing the Main Battery Clip
1. Press In
Latch
Press in the release latch.
2. Remove
Battery
Rotate the battery upward and lift it out of
the protective clip.

phone! To make use of the internal charger, you will need 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. However,
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

Charging Batteries
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 the battery is fully charged, the battery icon will stop
flashing and become solid.
High
Low
Battery Storage and Disposal
To prolong the life of batteries, avoid exposing them to
temperatures below -10°C (14°F) or above 45°C (113°F). It is a
good idea to take your phone with you when you leave your car.
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.
Expert Performance (E•P®)Charging System
The E•P system enables your phone’s built-in charger to
communicate with installed batteries and tailor its charging
cycle to optimize performance. If you see Invalid Battery
when you power up the phone, the built-in charger is not able to
communicate with the battery and cannot charge it. There are
several possible reasons for this message. The most likely one is
that the battery is not a Motorola original and it does not have
the appropriate E•P technology. We recommend that you use
only Motorola original batteries and accessories and that you
store your batteries in their protective clips when not in use.
15
Charging Batteries
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:
1. Attach
Adapter
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.

Charging Batteries
Getting Started
Desktop Charger Indicators
The LED indicators on the left front of the Desktop Charger let
you know the current state of any charging batteries.
The Front Pocket LED Indicator:
• Yellow means the phone with a battery is securely installed.
• Open the phone to see the charge status for the front pocket.
The Rear Pocket LED Indicator:
• Red means the battery is charging.
• Flashing yellow means the battery is waiting to be charged.
• Green means the battery is charged to 90% of its capacity.
Another hour of charging will bring it up to 100% capacity.
• Flashing red means the battery is damaged and cannot be
charged.
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). It is a good idea to
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 charge your battery regularly and
notice a decrease in talk-time or an increase in charging
time, then it is probably time to purchase a new battery.

Icons of numbers stored
To organize your Phone Book for convenient recall, try storing
related contacts 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 contacts in locations 10-19, family in
20-29, friends in 30-39, and so on.
Tip:
If you purchase a

serial ports. If this happens, open an application that uses the
serial port, like a fax or dial-up application, and your computer
will automatically activate the port.
Installing the Software
To begin making wireless data calls, you will need to install
the software from the CD-ROM that came with the Data
Solutions package.
The software is designed to take you through the installation
process step by step. Please see the User’s Guide for the software
for more detailed information on software installation.
117
Placing a Data Call
Keep in mind: You will not be able to place a data or fax call
through your phone’s keypad, using Last 10 Dialed, or with

Make sure the cable is connected properly.
2. Place
Call
Open the application on your computer, like a
fax or dial-up application, and place the call
through the application on your computer.
The phone will display the number your computer is calling (or the name if in the internal
Phone Book). You will see: Connecting.
Your phone will automatically redial 3 times (or until it is

will return to idle.
Ending a Data Call
Keep in mind: Some of the normal ways to end a call, like
pressing the Smart Button or closing the phone, will not work.
Close
Always close the connection through the
application on your computer. See the software user’s guide for more help. Your phone
will return to the idle display.

phone will remain in pre-arranged status when the data call is
ended. You will see either Fax Ready or Data Ready. See page
120 for more information.
Note: Disconnecting the cable or turning OFF your phone will
also end a data call, but they may disrupt your computer. See
page 131 for more information.

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 12 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 wireless number. If that does not
work, try using the factory preset lock code: 123. If this fails, call your
Service Provider (the company that sends you your monthly wireless bill) for
assistance. For more information on your phone’s security features, see the
Lock/Security chapter, page 82.
Q. My battery did not 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. It is a good idea to always take your
phone with you when you leave your car.
Q. I tried to place a call and received a fast busy signal.
A. This sound means that your call was not processed. For example, the
network may be temporarily busy. To redial the number, press the Smart
Button or press æ (or ª) before ending your call attempt, or press º
and try the call again later. See page 97 for more information on redialing.
128
Troubleshooting
Q. I tried to place a call but received an alternating
high/low tone. What does this mean?
A. This sound means your call did not connect to the network. 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 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.

Battery. What does this mean and why am I not able to charge
the battery?
A. Your wireless phone uses the Motorola Expert Performance (E•P) Charging
System. The E•P system enables the built-in charger to communicate with
attached batteries and tailor its charging cycle to optimize performance.
If you see Invalid Battery when you power up the phone, the built-in
charger is not able to communicate with the battery and cannot charge it.
You could see this message for several reasons. The most likely one is that
the battery is not a Motorola original and it does not have the appropriate
E•P technology. We recommend that you use only Motorola original
batteries and accessories and that you store your batteries in their
protective covers when not in use.
Troubleshooting
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 wireless service bills).
Q. I plugged the data cable into my phone but my phone did not
beep. How do I know if the data cable is ready to go?
A. The beep is a sure sign that you are setup correctly. If you did not hear the
beep, the first thing to check is that your phone is data capable. To do so, see
page 116.
Next make sure that both ends of the data cable are connected, the smaller
end to your phone and larger to your computer. Also check the model
number of the cable to be sure you have the right one. Look for SYN7464
printed on the cable.
If all of the above checks out, your computer may have deactivated the port
to save power. Try opening an application that uses the port, like a fax or
dial-up application, and your computer will automatically activate the port.
Q. My phone beeped when I attached the data cable* but my fax
and data applications don’t work at all. What’s wrong?
A. Keep in mind that you must be in an area with digital coverage. Check your
phone’s display for
to be sure you’re in a digital coverage area.
Some wireless networks may not support data or fax transmission. If you see
the digital indicator but you are roaming on an unfamiliar network, this
may be the case.
Also remember that data and fax transmission usually requires a
subscription. Call your Service Provider for more information.
Q. When sending data* with the data cable, why does the
computer show a connection rate of 19200 Kbps?
A. 19200 is the rate of the connection between your computer and the phone.
The rate of the connection between your phone and the network is displayed
on your phone and will be either 14400 or 9600.
*Contact your Service Provider for availability.
130
Troubleshooting
Q. I can’t end my data call* by closing the application on my
computer. What can I do?
A. If necessary, try pressing º on the phone. You might also disconnect the
cable or turn OFF the phone. Remember, if possible always close the
connection through your computer. These alternative methods may disrupt
the application on your computer.
Q. I launched the MiniBrowser* but the display says: Service Not
Available. What is wrong?
A. You are in an area without service. If you have wireless service, look in the
display for the Digital indicator. If you don’t see it you may have only Analog
service or no service at all. If you do see the Digital indicator, you may be
connected to digital network that does not support Internet access.
Q. I launched the MiniBrowser* but the display says: Data Server
Unavailable. What is wrong?
A. Try again in a few minutes. The servers may be temporarily busy.
