Your phone is equipped with a standard Lithium Ion (LiIon) battery. It
allows you to recharge your battery before it is fully drained. The
standard battery provides approximately 3 hours of continuous
digital talk time (1.5 hours in analog) or approximately 240 hours of
continuous digital standby time (17 hours in analog).
The extended battery provides approximately 4.5 hours of
continuous digital talk time (3 hours in analog) or approximately 432
hours of continuous digital standby time (30 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 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 watch your phone’s battery level indicator and charge the
battery before it runs out of power.
Installing the Battery

Keeping track of your battery’s charge is important. If your battery
level becomes too low, your phone automatically turns off. For a
quick check of your phone’s battery level, glance at the battery
charge indicator located in the upper-right corner of your phone’s
display screen. If the battery charge is getting too low, the battery
icon (
) blinks and the phone sounds a warning tone.
Always use a Samsung approved desktop charger, travel charger, or
vehicle power adapter to charge your battery.
Warning! Using the wrong battery charger could cause damage to your
phone and void the warranty.
Using the Desktop Charger
To use the desktop charger provided with your phone:
1. Plug the outlet from the desktop charger in the wall. Place
your phone into the desktop charger, making sure that it fits

on the phone indicates that the battery is charging.
• A green light on the desktop charger indicates that the battery
is at least 90 percent charged.
• A orange light on the desktop charger indicates that there is a
problem charging the phone.
It takes approximately 4 hours to fully recharge a completely
rundown standard battery. With the Samsung approved LiIon battery,
you can recharge the battery before it becomes completely run down.

A TTY (also known as a TDD or Text Telephone), is a telecommunications device that allows people who are deaf or hard of
hearing, or who have speech or language disabilities, to
communicate by telephone.
Your phone is compatible with select TTY devices. Please check with
the manufacturer of your TTY device to ensure that it supports digital
wireless transmission. Your phone and TTY device will connect via a
special cable that plugs into your phone's headset jack. If this cable
was not provided with your TTY device, contact your TTY device
manufacturer to purchase the connector cable.
To turn TTY Mode on or off:
1. Press

3. Press the navigation key up or down to select Enable TTY or
Disable TTY and press
.
34 Settings
Note: In TTY Mode when your headset is plugged in, your phone will
display the TTY access icon. If TTY mode is enabled, the headset cannot
be used.
IMPORTANT 911 Emergency Calling: We recommend that TTY users
make emergency calls by other means, including Telecommunications
Relay Services (TRS), analog cellular, and land line communications.
Wireless TTY calls to 911 may be corrupted when received by public
safety answering points (PSAPs) rendering some communications
unintelligible. The problem encountered appears related to TTY
equipment or software used by PSAPs. This matter has been brought to
the attention of the FCC, and the wireless industry and PSAP community
are currently working to resolve this.

Controlling Your Roaming
Experience
Understanding Roaming
Recognizing Icons on the Display Screen
Your phone’s display screen always lets you know when you’re off the
network. The following chart indicates what you’ll see depending on
where you’re using your phone.
Roaming Indicator
Analog Indicator
Network
Other Digital Networks
Note: You will pay a higher per-minute rate for roaming calls.
Roaming on Other Digital Networks
When you’re roaming, your call quality and security will be similar to
the quality you receive when making calls on your home network. You
may not be able to access certain features, such as web services.
Roaming on Analog Networks
When you roam on analog networks, you will experience a similar
quality provided by other analog carriers today. Although some
features, such as Mobile Web services and Voice Command, will be
unavailable, you can still make and receive calls and access voicemail.
You will experience a few differences:
•
You are more likely to experience static, cross-talk, fade-out,
and dropped calls.
Roaming 43
•
Some features which are standard on the network, such as call
waiting, web services, and direct international dialing, are
unavailable.
•
Though callers can leave voicemail messages while you are
roaming, you will not receive notification until you return to the
network. While roaming, you can periodically check your
voicemail for new messages by dialing 1+area code+your
Phone Number. Press
when you hear your greeting and
enter your passcode 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 network and enter an area
where roaming is available, your call is dropped. If your call is dropped in
an area where you think service is available, turn your phone Off and On
again to reconnect to the network.

Activating Voice Recognition
Voice recognition allows you to say commands to perform common
functions supported by your phone. There is no voice training
required to use the voice recognition feature. You simply say the predesignated command displayed on your screen in a normal tone of
voice to perform the desired function.
To activate voice recognition:

.
2. The phone prompts you to say a voice command. Wait for
the beep and then say one of the following commands:
•
Digit Dial
•
Voice Memo
•
Browser
•
Name Dial
•
Phonebook
•
Play Games
When it recognizes one of these commands, the phone launches the
associated application. If the phone does not hear a command within
approximately eight seconds, it de-activates voice recognition
without taking any action.
Note: If you want to use a different button to activate voice recognition,
press
for Launch Pad. On this menu, you can change
button assignments, including the button used to launch "Voice Dial,"
which is the voice recognition application.
Digit Dial
Digit Dial allows you dial any valid 7 or 11 digit North American
phone number by speaking the number naturally, without pausing
between the digits.
Tips for using Digit Dial:
•
Digit Dial works best in quieter environments.
Voice Services 79
•
When saying a number, speak at a normal speed and say each
digit clearly. There is no need to pause between digits.
•
The phone recognizes the digits one, two, three, four, five, six,
seven, eight, nine, zero, and oh. The phone does not recognize
numbers such as "one eight hundred" for "1-800." Instead, say
"one-eight-zero-zero."
•
The phone recognizes only valid 7, 10, or 11 digit North
American phone numbers.
•
If your phone does not usually recognize you correctly when
you are using Digit Dial, try adapting Digit Dial to your voice,
which can significantly improve accuracy for some speakers.
See the section "Adapting Digit Dial" for details.
To place a call using Digit Dial:
1. Activate voice recognition by pressing and holding

2. Say Digit Dial. The phone prompts you to say the number.
3. Say a valid 7, 10 or 11 digit North American phone number
naturally and clearly.
Note: If desired, you can say the number "1" before the number. This is
not required, the call is made both ways.
4. If the phone asks you, "Did You Say," followed by the correct
number, say "Yes." You can also select the correct number
from those displayed on the screen by pressing
on the
correct number. The phone will then dial the number.
5. If the phone asks you, "Did You Say," followed by an
incorrect number, say "No." If there are other alternatives,
the phone will prompt you with the next one. You can also
press the navigation key up or down to select the correct
number from the Choice List, and then press
to dial.
80 Voice Services
Note: In some cases, the phone might ask you to repeat a number. Make
sure that the number is a valid 7 or 10 digit North American phone
number, and then say the number again. If the number isn't valid, or if the
phone still doesn't understand the number on the second try, it will not
place a call.

Adapting Digit Dial
Digit Dialing is speaker independent, which means that no training or
adaptation is required. Some users with heavy accents or unusual
voice characteristics may find difficulty in achieving high accuracy
with speaker independent digit dialing, so the Adapt Digits feature
allows users to dramatically improve the digit accuracy through
adaptation. Users who get acceptable digit recognition accuracy will
find no additional benefit to performing the Adapt Digit adaptation.
Voice Services 81
After you adapt Digit Dial, your phone will be customized to your
voice. Other people will not be able to use Digit Dial on your phone
unless they reset the phone to factory defaults.
Important: ONLY adapt Digit Dial if the system is frequently
misrecognizing your speech. You can always restore the system to its
original factory setting.
Adaptation involves recording several digit sequences to teach the
system your voice. The adaptation process takes about 3 minutes.
Tips for adapting Digit Dial:
•
•
•
•
Adapt digits in a quiet place.
Make sure you wait for the beep before starting to speak.
Speak clearly, but say each digit sequence naturally.

can say or select No when the prompt asks, “Did the recording
sound OK?”. You will then be prompted to re-record the
sequence.

6. If the recording sounds ok (no mistakes, and no
background noises), say "Yes." If you need to re-record the
digits to fix any problems, say "No." The phone then
prompts you to say the digits again. Wait for the beep, and
then record the digits again. Repeat this step until you are
satisfied with the recording.
7. After confirming that the recording sounds ok, repeat the
recording process with the next set of digits. After six sets
of digits, the phone will ask you whether you want to do
more adaptation. Answer "Yes."
8. Repeat steps 4-8 for another six sets of digits. After the
sixth set of digits, you will be half way through the session
and the phone asks “More Adapatation?”. Select OK to
continue for six more sets of digits, or press
for partial
adapation. When you are finished with a full session, you
will reach a screen that reads, “Adaptation Complete”.
Note: It is recommended that you perform the complete adaptation of
Digit Dial at least once to achieve the maximum benefit of this feature. If a
partial adaptation is performed, you can always return later and resume
the process from the half way point.

Safety
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 radio frequency (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 Radio Frequency Safety
The design of your 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
Safety 117
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).
Maintaining Your Phone’s Peak Performance
There are several simple guidelines to operating your phone properly
and maintaining safe, satisfactory service.
•
Hold the phone with the antenna raised, fully-extended, and
over your shoulder.
•
•
•
•
Try not to hold, bend, or twist the phone’s antenna.
Don’t use the phone if the antenna is damaged.
Speak directly into the mouthpiece.
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 dealer
store or call Customer Support for service.
Note: For the best care of your phone, only BMC authorized personnel
should service your phone and accessories. Faulty service may void
the warranty.

may divert your attention from the road.
•
Dial 911 to report serious emergencies. It’s free from your
wireless phone.
•
•
Use your phone to help others in emergencies.
Position your phone within easy reach.
Let the person you are speaking to know you are driving; if
necessary, suspend the call in heavy traffic or hazardous
weather conditions.
Dial sensibly and assess the traffic; if possible, place calls
when stationary or before pulling into traffic.
Call roadside assistance or a special non-emergency wireless
number when necessary.
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.
Safety 119
Using Your Phone Near Other Electronic Devices
Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from radio frequency
(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.
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.
120 Safety
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:
•
•
•
•
Fueling areas such as gas stations.
•
Any other area where you would normally be advised to turn
off your vehicle’s engine.
Below deck on boats.
Fuel or chemical transfer or storage facilities.
Areas where the air contains chemicals or particles such as
grain, just or metal powders.
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 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.
Caring for the Battery
Protecting Your Battery
The guidelines listed below help you get the most out of your
battery’s performance.
•
Use only Samsung 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.
Safety 121
•
In order to avoid damage, charge the battery only in
temperatures that range from 32º F to 113º F (0º C to 45º C).
•
Don’t use the battery charger in direct sunlight or in high
humidity areas, such as the bathroom.
•
•
•
•
Never dispose of the battery by incineration.
•
It’s best to replace the battery when it no longer provides
acceptable performance. It can be recharged hundreds of
times before it needs replacing.
•
Don’t store the battery in high temperature areas for long
periods of time. It’s best to follow these storage rules:
Keep the metal contacts on top of the battery clean.
Don’t attempt to disassemble or short-circuit the battery.
The battery may need recharging if it has not been used for a
long period of time.
•
Less than one month:
4º F to 140º F (-20º C to 60º C)
•
More than one month:
4º F to 113º F (-20º C to 45º C)
Disposal of Lithium Ion (LiIon) Batteries
For safe disposal options of your LiIon batteries, contact your nearest
BMC service center.
Special Note: Be sure to dispose of your battery properly. In some
areas, the disposal of batteries in household or business trash may
be prohibited.
Note: For safety, do not handle a damaged or leaking LiIon battery.
122 Safety
Acknowledging Special Precautions and
Industry Canada Notice
Only use approved batteries, antennas, and chargers. The use of any
unauthorized accessories may be dangerous and will invalidate 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
hardware and can be broken. Use common-sense guidelines to avoid
dropping, hitting, bending or sitting on it.
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.
Information to User
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits
of a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules.
These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against
harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment
generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not
installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause
harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no
guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation; if
this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television
reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and
on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or
more of the following measures:
Safety 123
•
•
Reorient / relocate the receiving antenna.
Increase the separation between the equipment and
receiver.
•
Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit difference
from that to which the receiver is connected.
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
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-A660] are:
AMPS mode (Part 22) - Head: 1.32 W/kg; Body-worn: 0.55 W/kg
Digital mode (Part 24) - Head: 0.87 W/kg; Body-worn: 0.28 W/kg
Owner’s Record
The model number, regulatory number and serial number are located
