Important Information Regarding
the Local Serial Connection
For the i330 to properly HotSync with another computer, it must be setup
to connect using the Local Serial option in the HotSync configuration
settings. If this option is not selected, the i330 will not connect to the
other computer. The cable that connects the two devices was designed to
connect to a USB connector, thus allowing easier installation. It does not
however use a USB connection to HotSync the two devices together. The
devices still use a Local Serial connection to transfer and receive data. To
properly configure this option, see "Perform a HotSync the First Time" on
page 150.

Using the Battery
Battery Capacity
Your PCS Phone is equipped with a Lithium Ion (LiIon) battery. It allows
you to recharge your battery before it is fully drained. The battery
provides approximately 2.5 hours of continuous digital talk time
(1 hour in analog) or approximately 96 hours of continuous digital
standby time (14 hours in analog).
When the battery reaches 5% of its capacity, the battery icon blinks. When
there are approximately two minutes of talk time left, the phone sounds
an audible alert every 30 seconds and then powers down.
Note: Long backlight settings, searching for service, vibrate mode and
browser use affect the battery’s talk and standby times.
Tip: Be sure to charge your phone’s battery and watch your indicator to
ensure your levels are okay.
Installing the Battery
Your PCS Phone comes with a LiIon battery. Follow these steps to
install it:
1. Place the battery on the back of the phone, making sure that the
plastic tabs are aligned with the corresponding holes in the phone.
2. Gently push the battery down until it snaps into place.
Removing the Battery
To remove your battery for charging or for another reason, follow these
easy steps:
Section 2: Understanding Your Phone
2A: Your PCS Phone - The Basics
24
1. Make sure the power is off so that you don’t lose any stored numbers
or messages.
2. Push the battery release latch up and pull the battery away from the
phone at a 45 degree angle.
Charging the Battery
Your PCS Phone comes with a rechargeable battery. You should charge
the battery as soon as possible so you can begin using your phone.
Keeping track of your battery’s charge is important. If your battery level
becomes too low, your phone automatically turns off and you’ll lose
everything you were just working on. For a quick check of your phone’s
battery level, glance at the battery charge indicator located in the upperright corner of your phone’s display screen. If the battery charge is
getting too low, the battery icon (

Roaming Indicator
Sprint Nationwide PCS Network
Other Digital Networks
Tip: Remember, when you are using your phone off the Sprint Nationwide
PCS Network, always dial numbers using 11 digits (1 + area code +
number).
Note: You will pay a higher per-minute rate for roaming calls.
Roaming on Other Digital Networks
When you’re roaming on other digital networks, your call quality and
security will be similar to the quality you receive when making calls
while on the Sprint Nationwide PCS Network. You may not be able to
access certain calling features, such as PCS Vision.
Roaming on Analog Networks
When you roam on analog networks, you will experience a similar
quality provided by other analog carriers today. Although some calling
features, such as PCS Vision, will be unavailable, you can still make and
receive calls and access voicemail. You will experience a few differences:
䊳
You are more likely to experience static, cross-talk, fade-out and
dropped calls.

Though callers can leave voicemail messages while you are
roaming, you will not receive notification until you return to the
Sprint Nationwide PCS Network. While roaming, you should
periodically check your voicemail box for new messages by dialing
1+area code+your PCS Phone Number. Press
when you hear
your greeting and enter your pass code at the prompt.
There are security and privacy risks (eavesdropping and cloning)
that exist with conventional analog services today.
Your battery needs recharging sooner when you use your phone for
analog roaming.
Note: If you’re on a call when you leave the Sprint Nationwide PCS
Network and enter an area where roaming is available (whether digital or
analog), your call is dropped. If your call is dropped in an area where you
think PCS Service is available, turn your phone off and on again to
reconnect to the Sprint Nationwide PCS Network.
Note: When using your phone in analog mode, the handset may feel warm.
This behavior is normal for analog operation.

If you change the start date of a repeating event, your phone
calculates the number of days you moved the event. Your phone then
automatically changes the end date to maintain the duration of the

IR HotSync Operations
Your phone is equipped with an infrared (IR) port that supports the
IrCOMM implementation of the standards for infrared communication
established by the Infrared Data Association (IrDA). This means that not
only can you beam data to another Palm OS® handheld that is
equipped with an IR port, but you can also beam data to a cell phone and
any other device that supports the IrCOMM implementation of the IrDA
standards. Most importantly, you can use the IR port to perform HotSync
operations. This is especially useful if you travel with an infrared-enabled
laptop. You simply enable infrared communication on your laptop and
handheld and follow the steps in “Performing an IR HotSync operation”
later in this section.
Preparing your computer for infrared communication

desktop computer must have the following requirements:
䊳
The computer must support the IrCOMM implementation of the IrDA
standards.
䊳
The computer must have an enabled infrared port that is built into
the computer, or an enabled infrared device attached to the
computer.
Desktop computers are likely to require an infrared device attached to a
physical COM port. Laptop computers are likely to have a built-in IR port,
so no external device is necessary. Your computer must also have an
installed infrared driver. Check your computer’s documentation to learn
if the computer supports infrared communication. If your desktop
computer uses Microsoft® Windows 98, 2000, or XP infrared
communication is built into the operating system.
To check the ports used for infrared communication:

support.” You need this information to configure the HotSync
Manager for infrared communication.
6. Deselect any other check boxes in the Options tab.
7. Click Apply and OK to exit.
Configuring HotSync Manager for infrared communication

P
art of getting the most out of your PCS Phone is knowing where and
how it works at optimum efficiency. This section outlines performance
and safety guidelines that ensure you experience the full quality that your
PCS Phone was designed to give you.
Section 4: Safety Guidelines and Warranty Information
4A: Safety 181
Getting the Most Out of Your Reception
Keeping Tabs on Signal Strength
The quality of each call you make or receive depends on the signal
strength in your area. Your phone informs you of the current signal
strength by displaying a number of bars next to the signal strength icon.
The more bars displayed, the stronger the signal. If you’re inside a
building, being near a window may give you better reception.
Understanding the Power Save Feature
If your phone is unable to find a signal after 15 minutes of searching, a
Power Save feature is automatically activated. If your phone is active, it
periodically rechecks service availability or you can check it yourself by
pressing any key. Anytime the Power Save feature is activated, a message
displays on the screen. When a signal is found, your phone returns to
Standby mode.
Understanding How Your Phone Operates
Your phone is basically a radio transmitter and receiver. When it’s turned
on, it receives and transmits radiofrequency (RF) signals. When you use
your phone, the system handling your call controls the power level. This
power can range from 0.006 watts to 0.2 watts in digital mode.
Knowing Radiofrequency Safety
The design of your PCS Phone complies with updated NCRP standards
described below.
In 1991-92, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE)
and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) joined in
updating ANSI’s 1982 standard for safety levels with respect to human
exposure to RF signals. More than 120 scientists, engineers and
physicians from universities, government health agencies and industries
developed this updated standard after reviewing the available body of
research. In 1993, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)
adopted this updated standard in a regulation. In August 1996, the FCC
adopted hybrid standard consisting of the existing ANSI/IEEE standard
and the guidelines published by the National Council of Radiation
Protection and Measurements (NCRP).
Section 4: Safety Guidelines and Warranty Information

Maintaining Your Phone’s Peak Performance
There are several simple guidelines to operating your phone properly and
maintaining safe, satisfactory service.
䊳
Don’t use the phone if the antenna is damaged.
䊳
Speak directly into the mouthpiece.
䊳
Avoid exposing your phone and accessories to rain or liquid spills.
If your phone does get wet, immediately turn the power off and
remove the battery. If it’s inoperable, return it to a Sprint Store or
call PCS Customer Solutions for service.
Note: For the best care of your phone, only Sprint authorized personnel
should service your phone and accessories. Faulty service may void
the warranty.
Maintaining Safe Use of and Access to
Your Phone
FAILURE TO FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS OUTLINED MAY LEAD TO
SERIOUS PERSONAL INJURY AND POSSIBLE PROPERTY DAMAGE
Using Your Phone While Driving
Talking on your phone while driving (or operating the phone without a
hands-free device) is prohibited in some jurisdictions. Laws vary as to
specific restrictions. Remember that safety always comes first.
When using your phone in the car:
Get to know your phone and its features, such as speed dial
and redial.
䊳
When available, use a hands-free device.
䊳
Position your phone within easy reach.
䊳
Let the person you are speaking to know you are driving; if necessary,
suspend the call in heavy traffic or hazardous weather conditions.
䊳
Do not take notes or look up phone numbers while driving.
䊳
Dial sensibly and assess the traffic; if possible, place calls when
stationary or before pulling into traffic.
䊳
Do not engage in stressful or emotional conversations that may
divert your attention from the road.

Tip: Purchase an optional Hands-Free Car Kit.
Following Safety Guidelines
To operate your phone safely and efficiently, always follow any special
regulations in a given area. Turn your phone off in areas where use is
forbidden or when it may cause interference or danger.
Using Your Phone Near Other Electronic Devices
Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from radiofrequency (RF)
signals. However, RF signals from wireless phones may affect
inadequately shielded electronic equipment.
RF signals may affect improperly installed or inadequately shielded
electronic operating systems and/or entertainment systems in motor
vehicles. Check with the manufacturer or their representative to
determine if these systems are adequately shielded from external RF
signals. Also check with the manufacturer regarding any equipment that
has been added to your vehicle.
Consult the manufacturer of any personal medical devices, such as
pacemakers and hearing aids, to determine if they are adequately
shielded from external RF signals.
Note: Always turn off the phone in health care facilities and request
permission before using the phone near medical equipment.
Turning Off Your Phone Before Flying
Turn off your phone before boarding any aircraft. To prevent possible
interference with aircraft systems, the U.S. Federal Aviation
Administration (FAA) regulations require you to have permission from a
crew member to use your phone while the plane is on the ground. To
prevent any risk of interference, FCC regulations prohibit using your
phone while the plane is in the air.
Section 4: Safety Guidelines and Warranty Information
4A: Safety 184
Turning Off Your Phone in Dangerous Areas
To avoid interfering with blasting operations, turn off your phone when
in a blasting area or in other areas with signs indicating that two-way
radios should be turned off. Construction crews often use remote-control
RF devices to set off explosives.
Turn off your phone when you’re in any area that has a potentially
explosive atmosphere. Although it’s rare, your phone or its accessories
could generate sparks. Sparks could cause an explosion or a fire resulting
in bodily injury or even death. These areas are often, but not always,
clearly marked. They include:
䊳
Fueling areas such as gas stations.
䊳
Below deck on boats.
䊳
Fuel or chemical transfer or storage facilities.
䊳
Areas where the air contains chemicals or particles such as grain,
just or metal powders.
䊳
Any other area where you would normally be advised to turn off your
vehicle’s engine.
Note: Never transport or store flammable gas, liquid or explosives in the
compartment of your vehicle that contains your phone or accessories.
Restricting Children’s Access to your Phone
Your PCS Phone is not a toy. Children should not be allowed to play with
it because they could hurt themselves and others, damage the phone or
make calls that increase your phone bill.
Section 4: Safety Guidelines and Warranty Information
4A: Safety 185
Caring for the Battery
Protecting Your Battery
The guidelines listed below help you get the most out of your
battery’s performance.
䊳
Use only Sprint-approved batteries and desktop chargers. These
chargers are designed to maximize battery life. Using other batteries
or chargers voids your warranty and may cause damage.
䊳
In order to avoid damage, charge the battery only in temperatures
that range from 32º F to 104º F (0º C to 40º C).
䊳
Don’t use the battery charger in direct sunlight or in high humidity
areas, such as the bathroom.
䊳
Never dispose of the battery by incineration.
䊳
Keep the metal contacts on top of the battery clean.
䊳
Don’t attempt to disassemble or short-circuit the battery.
䊳
The battery may need recharging if it has not been used for a long

Acknowledging Special Precautions and the
FCC Notice
FCC Notice
The phone may cause TV or radio interference if used in close proximity
to receiving equipment. The FCC can require you to stop using the phone
if such interference cannot be eliminated.
Vehicles using liquefied petroleum gas (such as propane or butane) must
comply with the National Fire Protection Standard (NFPA-58). For a copy
of this standard, contact the National Fire Protection Association,
One Batterymarch Park, Quincy, MA 02269, Attn: Publication
Sales Division.
Cautions
Any changes or modifications to your phone not expressly approved in
this document could void your warranty for this equipment, and void
your authority to operate this equipment. Only use approved batteries,
antennas and chargers. The use of any unauthorized accessories may be
dangerous and void the phone warranty if said accessories cause damage
or a defect to the phone.
Although your phone is quite sturdy, it is a complex piece of equipment
and can be broken. Avoid dropping, hitting, bending or sitting on it.
Body-Worn Operation
To maintain compliance with FCC RF exposure guidelines, if you wear a
handset on your body, use the Sprint supplied or approved carrying case,
holster or other body-worn accessory. If you do not use a body-worn
accessory, ensure that the antenna is at least one inch (2.5 centimeters)
from your body when transmitting. Use of non-Sprint approved
accessories may violate FCC RF exposure guidelines.
For more information about RF exposure, please visit the FCC Web site at
www.fcc.gov.
Section 4: Safety Guidelines and Warranty Information
4A: Safety 187
Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) for Wireless Phones
The SAR is a value that corresponds to the relative amount of RF energy
absorbed in the head of a user of a wireless handset.
The SAR value of a phone is the result of an extensive testing, measuring
and calculation process. It does not represent how much RF the phone
emits. All phone models are tested at their highest value in strict
laboratory settings. But when in operation, the SAR of a phone can be
substantially less than the level reported to the FCC. This is because of a
variety of factors including its proximity to a base station antenna, phone
design and other factors. What is important to remember is that each
phone meets strict federal guidelines. Variations in SARs do not represent
a variation in safety.
All phones must meet the federal standard, which incorporates a
substantial margin of safety. As stated above, variations in SAR values
between different model phones do not mean variations in safety. SAR
values at or below the federal standard of 1.6 W/kg are considered safe for
use by the public.
The highest reported SAR values of the [SPH-I330] are:
AMPS mode (Part 22) - Head: 1.40 W/kg; Body-worn: .989 W/kg
PCS mode (Part 24) - Head: 1.37 W/kg; Body-worn: .714 W/kg
FCC Radiofrequency Emission
This phone meets the FCC Radiofrequency Emission Guidelines. FCC ID
number: [manufacturer needs to provide #]. More information on the
