Contacts
The Contacts application lets you store and manage contacts from a variety of sources,
including contacts you enter and save directly in your phone as well as contacts synchronized
with your Google Account, your PC, compatible email programs (including Exchange Server),
and your Facebook friends.
Get Started with Contacts
Before using Contacts, it’s best to learn a few basics.
Your phone automatically sorts the Contacts entries alphabetically. You can create a Google
contact, a phone contact, or a Corporate (Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync) contact.
●
Google contacts are synchronized between your phone and a Google Account you set
up on your phone.
●
Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync contacts are synchronized between your phone and
an Exchange Server or Microsoft® Outlook® account set up on your phone.
●
Device contacts are stored locally on the phone.
Note: If the phone is ever reset to its factory default parameters, locally stored contacts (phone
contacts) can be lost.

Connections Optimizer
The Connections Optimizer is a tool that automatically selects the best mobile network for your
phone, including "remembered" Wi-Fi networks.
About Connections Optimizer
The Connections Optimizer helps you manage and enhance your data experience by finding
and connecting to "remembered" Wi-Fi networks on your phone. Remembered Wi-Fi networks
are networks with which you have previously chosen to connect. Active Wi-Fi connections may
offer improved performance and generally improve battery life while allowing you to talk on the
phone and use data at the same time.
The Connections Optimizer works by searching for available "remembered" Wi-Fi networks. If
you do not leave your Wi-Fi antenna on all the time, you will only notice the Connections
Optimizer operating at certain times of the day in a small number of locations on the network.
Your Wi-Fi antenna will conserve battery by scanning for connections periodically (not
continuously), and if no connection is achieved, the antennas will be turned off. You may also
manually turn the antennas off during the scan period.
To facilitate quality assurance and enable feature enhancements, information is collected about
your battery levels, Wi-Fi and network connections and usage. No personal information is
collected.
1. Press

> Settings > Connections tab > More networks > Mobile
networks > Connections optimizer.

With your Sprint service, you are ready to start enjoying the advantages of data services. The
following topics will help you learn the basics of using your data services, including managing
your user name, launching a data connection, and navigating the Web with your phone.
Important! Certain data services requests may require additional time to process. While your
phone is loading the requested service, the touchscreen keyboard may appear unresponsive
when in fact it is functioning properly. Allow the phone some time to process your data usage
request.
Your Data Services User Name
When you buy your phone and sign up for service, you’re automatically assigned a user name,
which is typically based on your name and a number, followed by “@sprintpcs.com”. (For
example, the third John Smith to sign up for Sprint data services might have
jsmith003@sprintpcs.com as his user name.)
