Driving Safety Tips
Your wireless phone is a great safety tool. You can instantly call for help in
emergencies or alert your next appointment that you're running late. Please
follow these tips for using your wireless phone when you're behind the wheel.
1. Give driving your full attention. Don't let anything interfere with your
concentration.
2. Assess road conditions before making or taking a call.
3. Let voice mail pick up when its inconvenient or unsafe to answer the
phone.
4. Program your most frequently dialed numbers into your phone for
speed dialing when dialing manually without the Turbo Dial® one-touch
dialing feature, dial only when your vehicle is stopped - or have a
passenger dial for you.
5. Position your phone where it is easy to see and reach.
6. Keep your eyes on the road. Never take notes while driving.
3
7. Consider using the hands-free speakerphone or a hands-free
accessory which allows you to keep both hands on the wheel when
speaking.
8. Use your phone's Internet capabilities before you drive. Nextel Online
services are not designed to be used while driving.
9. Be a Good Samaritan. Dial 9-1-1 in emergencies to report accidents,
impaired or aggressive drivers, crimes or fires. It's a free call. Know your
phone number, so emergency services personnel can call you back if
necessary.
10.Check the driving regulations in your area for possible limitations or
restrictions on the use of your mobile phone while driving.

Using T9® Text Input
Your i88s phone has embedded software called T9® Text Input that makes
typing on a phone keypad much like typing on a computer keyboard — it
eliminates the traditional multi-tap method of text entry. As you type, you press
only one key per letter. T9 Text Input matches your keystrokes to words in its
linguistic database of approximately 60,000 words and proper names. You may
also store additional words you frequently use in your own user database, which
is incorporated into the T9 database.
T9 Text Input is available when you are typing information into your phone (for
example, in the Phonebook or Datebook) and while using Nextel Online
services.
nextel.com
26
Using T9® Text Input
T9 Text Input Entry Modes
Four text entry modes are available in T9 Text Input: Alpha, Word, Symbols,
and Numeric. When you are using T9 Text Input, an icon in the top right corner
of your phone’s display screen (next to the battery strength indicator icon)
indicates the T9 Text Input entry mode you are using:

services.
Choosing a Text Entry Mode with Nextel Online
When you are using Nextel Online services, T9 Text Input becomes available
whenever you access a screen that requires you to enter text. The right display
option on your phone’s screen indicates your current T9 Text Input text entry
mode:
•
•
•
•
ALPHA and alpha for Alpha mode
WORD or word for Word mode
SYM1, SYM2, SYM3, or SYM4 for Symbols mode
NUM for Numeric mode
To change text entry modes, press the right B until the desired mode displays.
NOTE: The remaining T9 Text Input instructions do not apply to Nextel
Online. See the Nextel Online User’s Guide available on
nextel.com for instructions on using T9 Text Input with Nextel
Online services.
27
Choosing a Text Entry Mode
You can select your text entry mode from a menu available whenever the phone

•
•
•
Press any key on the alphanumeric keypad to enter the letters and numbers
on that key. For example, to enter the letter Y, press 9 three times.

Press A under DELETE to delete one character. Press and hold A under
DELETE to delete an entire entry.
Using Word Mode
T9 Text Input software replaces conventional multi-tap text entry, enabling
users to compose text messages with only one key press per letter. Since each
key on a telephone has more than one letter, pressing the number 5 could
represent “J”, “K”, or “L”. T9 automatically compares users key presses to a
linguistic database to determine the correct word. For example, entering the
word “call” into a wireless phone takes just four key presses with T9, compared
to ten using conventional multi-tap entry.
Special Key Functions
Some of your phone’s keys assume different functions while in T9 Text Input
Word mode.
Backspace and Erase
Press A under DELETE once to backspace or to erase a single character. Press
and hold A under DELETE to erase the entire text entry field.

When neither of these icons appear, letters typed are lowercase.
Punctuation
In Word mode, T9 Text Input uses Smart Punctuation to quickly apply basic
rules of grammar to insert the correct punctuation within a word and at the end
of a sentence.
Press 1 to insert punctuation. One of eight basic punctuation symbols will be
inserted (. , - ’ @ : ? ;).
Press 0 to change the inserted punctuation symbol to another of the eight basic
punctuation symbols.
Press R to accept the punctuation and continue typing.
NOTE: Additional punctuation symbols are available in Symbols mode.

Phonebook Entries and Speed Dial Numbers
Your Phonebook can store multiple phone numbers for a single name. For
example, you can enter someone’s name into your Phonebook once and then
add that person’s home, office, mobile phone and fax numbers. You can store up
to seven phone numbers, a Private ID, and an IP address.
Each number stored in your Phonebook is automatically assigned a Speed Dial
number that corresponds to its location in your Phonebook. Each phone number
uses one Speed Dial number, even if it is assigned to the same name as other
phone numbers. The phone number stored in location 1 is assigned Speed Dial
number 1, the phone number stored in location 2 is assigned Speed Dial number
2, and so forth, to location 250.
NOTE: Private IDs and Talkgroup numbers do not have associated
Speed Dial numbers.
Phonebook Icons
Icons that appear to the right of entries in your Phonebook convey information
about those entries.
When you enter a number in your Phonebook, you can designate the number’s
type using any of the following icons:
W
Mobile
h

Pause Digit Entry
When storing a number, you can program your phone so that it will not only dial
a number but also pause before entering another series of numbers such as a
personal identification number (PIN) or password. This feature is particularly
useful for accessing automated services such as voice mail and banking systems
from your i88s phone.
Example: Let’s say you have a company voice mail account that you frequently
check while traveling. And, to access that account you must do the following:
•
•
•
dial your work number
press # while the voice mail greeting is being played
enter your PIN to access your messages
You can program your phone to enter all of the above information for you by
separating each entry with a pause. The stored data would look like this:
17035551234P#P1234. In this example, the first eleven digits represent the
number that must be dialed to access your voice mail. The P represents a 3
second pause. The # interrupts your greeting. The second P represents another 3
second pause. The last four digits represent your PIN.
To create a three-second pause, follow the steps below:
Press and hold * for two seconds. The pause symbol (P) will appear
on the display screen.
NOTE: You can enter up to 20 characters in a single entry, stored or
dialed. You can program your phone to pause for more than 3
seconds. Performing the above step twice will program two
pauses and cause your phone to wait 6 seconds before entering
the next set of numbers.

additional monthly or per-use fee. See the following sections for more
information on these services. Contact Nextel Customer Care to obtain these
services or for additional information.
NOTE: Some services are not available outside of the continental
United States.
Caller ID
If you subscribe to Caller ID, your phone automatically displays the phone
number or name (if the 10-digit phone number is stored in your Phonebook) of
the person calling (unless blocked by the caller), enabling you to decide whether
to take the call or forward it to Voice Mail.
NOTE: Caller ID information is not available on all calls.
Displaying the Caller’s Name

Phonebook (see “Adding Phonebook Entries” on page 46). Otherwise, the
caller’s phone number will be displayed.
Maintaining Your Privacy with Per-Call and Per-Line
Blocking
Nextel provides two methods to prevent those you call from seeing your number
on their own Caller ID displays.

to 911, 800, 855, 866, 877, 888, or other toll-free phone numbers.

GPS Enabled
Your phone’s GPS Enabled feature uses information from Global Positioning
System (GPS) satellites orbiting the Earth to determine the approximate
geographical location of your phone, expressed as latitude and longitude. The
availability and accuracy of this location information (and the amount of time
that it takes to calculate it) will vary depending on the environment in which you
are using the GPS feature. For example, GPS location fixes are often difficult to
obtain indoors, in covered locations, between high buildings, or in other
situations where you have not established a clear broad view of the sky. SEE:
“IMPORTANT: Things to Keep in Mind” on page 120.
When you make a 911 emergency call, the phone’s GPS feature can help
emergency personnel locate you if your phone has adequate access to GPS
satellite signals and your emergency response center is equipped to process such
information.
You can also use the GPS feature to view your approximate location. Location
information appears on your phone’s display screen.
Java applications loaded on your phone can also request your location. If your
phone is connected to a laptop computer or similar device, software running on
that device can request your location. To protect your privacy, you can control
whether these requests are granted.

IMPORTANT: Things to Keep in Mind
If you are using your phone’s GPS feature while driving, please give full
attention to driving and to the road.
Where adequate signals from multiple satellites are not available (usually
because your GPS antenna cannot establish a view of a wide area of open sky),
the GPS feature of your phone WILL NOT WORK. Such situations include
but are not limited to:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
In underground locations.
Inside of buildings, trains, or other covered vehicles.
Under any other metal or concrete roof or structure.
Between tall buildings or under dense tree-cover.
Near a powerful radio or television tower.
When your GPS antenna is covered (for example, by your hand or
other object) or facing the ground.
Temperature extremes outside the operating limits of the phone.
Walking or driving very slowly may also substantially reduce GPS
performance.
Even where location information can be calculated in such situations, it
may take much longer to do so, and your location estimate may not be as
accurate. Therefore, in any 911 call, always report the location to the
emergency response center if you can and if you cannot, remain on the
phone for as long as the emergency response center instructs you.
Even where adequate signals from multiple satellites are available, your
GPS feature will only provide an approximate location, often within 150
feet (45 meters) but sometimes much further from your actual location.
Advice on how to improve GPS performance is provided in “Enhancing
GPS Performance” on page 124.
While the GPS feature of your phone can be a valuable navigational aid, it does
not replace the need for careful navigating and good judgment. Never rely
solely on one device for navigation. Remember that the accuracy of the
location information and the time needed to obtain it will vary depending on
circumstances, particularly the ability to receive signals from adequate numbers
of satellites.
On emergency calls, your phone uses assistance information from the phone
network to improve the speed and accuracy of the phone’s location calculation:
if such assistance information becomes unavailable, it may reduce the speed and
accuracy of the location calculation.

Making an Emergency Call
The satellites used by your phone’s GPS feature are controlled by the U.S.
government and are subject to changes implemented in accordance with the
Department of Defense GPS user policy and the Federal Radionavigation Plan.
These changes may affect the performance of your phone’s GPS feature.
Making an Emergency Call
Dial 911 to be connected to an emergency response center. If you are on an
active call, you must end it before calling 911.
When you make an emergency 911 call, your phone’s GPS feature begins to
seek information to calculate your approximate location. It will take your
phone’s GPS feature some time to determine your approximate location.
Even where your phone has good access to sufficient GPS satellite signals and
network assist data, it may take 30 seconds or more to determine the
approximate location. This time will increase where there is reduced access to
satellite signals. When your approximate location is determined, it is made
available to the appropriate emergency response center.
In some cases, your local 911 emergency response center may not be
equipped to receive GPS location information. For this reason, and because
the GPS location information reported is only approximate or may not be
available in your location (see “IMPORTANT: Things to Keep in Mind” on
page 120), always report your location to the 911 operator you speak to when
making an emergency call, if able, just as you would when using a phone
without GPS capabilities.
NOTE: If you are concerned about whether your local 911 emergency
response center is equipped to receive GPS location
information, contact your local authorities.
In general, if your phone has access to signals from more GPS satellites, your
location will be determined faster and more accurately than if your phone has
access to signals from fewer GPS satellites.
If your phone does not have adequate access to GPS satellites signals, the
location of the nearest cell tower in contact with your phone is automatically
made available to emergency response center, if the center has the capability to
receive such information.
See “Enhancing GPS Performance” on page 124 for information on how to help
your phone determine your location.

To calculate your location again:
Press B under RFRSH.
It may take your phone several minutes to complete the process of determining
your location. During this time, a message usually displays on your phone’s
screen saying your phone is scanning for satellites. For tips on getting the best
location calculation, see “Enhancing GPS Performance” on page 124.
The Position screen displays the updated information.
To cancel a location calculation before it is completed:
Press B under CANCEL to return to the Position screen.
Or,
Press e to return to the idle screen.
Each time your phone’s approximate location is calculated, the latest location
information is stored in your phone and remains there even when your phone is
powered off. You will see this information the next time you view the Position
screen.
If you received a phone call or alert while attempting to determine your phone’s
location, the Position screen will disappear, but your phone will continue
attempting to determine its location. If it is successful, the new location
information will be displayed the next time you view the Position screen.
123
Enhancing GPS Performance
Sometimes your phone’s GPS feature may be unable to complete a location
calculation successfully. If this happens when you are making an emergency
call, the location of the nearest cell tower in contact with your phone is made
available to the appropriate emergency response center if the center has the
capability to receive such information. If this happens when you are trying to
view your location on your phone’s screen, you will see a message indicating
that your phone cannot access satellites.
To improve accuracy and increase your chances of a successful calculation, do
the following while your phone is determining your approximate location:
•
•
Stay in the open. The GPS feature works best where there is nothing
between your phone and a large amount of open sky. If possible, go
outside, away from tall buildings and foliage. While performance in a
building is improved by moving closer to windows, glass with certain sun
shielding films may block satellite signals.
Hold the phone to enhance reception. Signals from GPS satellites are
transmitted to your GPS antenna, which is inside the back of your phone,
opposite the earpiece, behind the Nextel label. Hold your phone away from
your body, giving the antenna clear access to satellite signals. Do not cover
the antenna area with your fingers or anything else.
GPS antenna area
•
Stand still. If possible, stand still until your phone is finished determining
your location. Moving the phone at a walking pace while the phone is
calculating your approximate location may substantially decrease GPS
performance.

124
Updating Satellite Almanac Data
•
In a car. When using the GPS Enabled feature in a car, position the phone
so that the GPS antenna has good access to GPS signals through the car’s
windows. Typically, the GPS antenna has best access to GPS signals in a
car when placed near a window.
NOTE: Although moving the phone at a walking pace decreases GPS
performance, moving it at the speed of a moving car does not.
•
Stay in network coverage. Depending on who your service provider is,
the network will provide your phone with information that helps determine
your location more quickly and accurately.
Updating Satellite Almanac Data
Another way to keep your phone’s GPS feature working well is to keep your
satellite almanac data up to date.
The United States government maintains an almanac of data about where GPS
satellites are as they orbit the Earth. This information is available to your phone.
Keeping your satellite almanac up to date helps your phone determine your
location more quickly.
The almanac contains information about the precise location of satellites, their
operational status, and other satellite information. Keeping this information
updated enhances the performance of your GPS feature. In most cases, your
phone will be able to get a fix in strong satellite signal conditions with outdated
almanac data, but it may take longer.
NOTE: When you make an emergency call, your phone does not rely
upon the almanac to determine your location.
If your satellite almanac data is out of date, your phone may prompt you to
update it. Follow the instructions that appear on your phone’s display screen.
You may be asked to go to a web site or call a customer care number.
Setting Privacy Options
Your phone’s GPS privacy options control whether Java applications on your
phone or other software applications may view your phone’s location.You may
set your phone to one of three GPS privacy options:
•
•
Restricted — No Java or similar software applications may view your
phone’s location. However, a different privacy protection mechanism may
apply to those customers who purchase a dispatch application.
Unrestricted — All applications may view your phone’s location, without
notifying you.
125
•
By Permission — When an application attempts to view your phone’s
location, you will be prompted to give permission. However, a different
privacy protection mechanism may apply to those customers who purchase
a dispatch application.
NOTE: Privacy options do not apply to the transmission of location
information during emergency 911 calls.
To set your GPS privacy options:
1
From the GPS screen, press R to scroll to Privacy.

Using GPS with Map Software
You can use your phone’s GPS feature to provide approximate location data to a
laptop computer or similar device that is running interactive map software such
as that made by DeLorme or Microsoft. This way, if your phone has good access
to GPS signals, your approximate position on a map can be made available as
you as you travel in a vehicle.
127
To do this, connect your phone to your laptop (or other device) with a data cable
and set your phone to transmit data (see “Getting Started” on page 128). Your
phone then provides your approximate location to the device running the map
software, which displays your location on a map. Your phone provides an
updated location every second and the map software displays your changing
location on its map.
See “Enhancing GPS Performance” on page 124 for more details on obtaining
good location information.
NOTE: Because your phone is continuously determining your location,
using your phone’s GPS feature with map software uses your
phone’s battery power quickly.
Software Compatibility
Your phone sends location information to your laptop or other device using the
standard National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA) format. Your phone
supports output messages in NMEA-0183 format and supports the following
NMEA-0183 sentences: GGA, GLL, GSA, GSV, RMC, and VTG.
The map software running on your laptop or other device must support
NMEA 3.0.
Getting Started
To connect your phone to your laptop or other device:
1
Hold the phone with its keypad facing up.
2
Insert the data cable’s connector into the right side of the accessory
connector at the bottom of the phone, until you hear a click.

Java Applications and GPS Enabled
Some Java applications can make use of your phone’s GPS feature to determine
the geographical location of your phone. (See “GPS Enabled” on page 119 for
more information on the GPS feature.) However, for privacy reasons, you may
not always want Java applications to access your phone’s geographical location.
Your phone protects your privacy by giving you the option to block all or some
Java applications from accessing your phone’s location.
About GPS Enabled Privacy Options
GPS enables you to choose one of three privacy options:
•
•
Restricted — No Java or similar software applications may view your
phone’s location. However, a different privacy protection mechanism may
apply to those customers who purchase a dispatch application.
Unrestricted — All Java applications may access your phone’s location,
without notifying you.
159
•
By Permission — When an application attempts to view your phone’s
location, you will be prompted to give permission. However, a different
privacy protection mechanism may apply to those customers who purchase
a dispatch application.
See “Setting Privacy for Each Java Application” on page 161 for information on
choosing one of these options.
Granting or Denying Permission
If you choose the By Permission option, you have several ways to grant or deny
each Java application access to your phone’s location.
When a given Java application attempts to access your phone’s location for the
first time, a screen appears informing you that the Java application is requesting
a read on your phone location. You may see this screen again when the Java
application requests access to your phone’s location, depending on the privacy
setting you choose for the individual Java application (see “Setting Privacy for
Each Java Application” on page 161).
To deny this request:
Press A under DENY. The Java application will not read your phone’s
position.
To grant this request:
Press A under GRANT. The Java application accesses your phone’s
location.
If you grant the request, a screen appears asking you if you want to allow this
Java application to access your phone’s location from now on:
Press A under YES to allow this Java application to access your
phone’s location from now on, without prompting you again. This sets
this Java applications privacy setting to Always (see “Setting Privacy
for Each Java Application” on page 161).
Press A under NO if you want this Java application to prompt you the
next time it attempts to access your phone’s location,

Java Applications and GPS Enabled
Setting Privacy for Each Java Application
After a given Java application attempts to access your phone’s location for the
first time, you will have the opportunity to set GPS Enabled privacy settings for
that Java application from the Java Apps menu.
•
The Java application always has permission access to your phone’s
location, without notifying you.
When the Java application requests access to your phone’s location, you
will be prompted to grant or deny permission (see “Granting or Denying
Permission” on page 160).
When the Java application requests access to your phone’s location,
permission will automatically be denied without requiring any user
actions.

Java Apps Memory
If you want to use custom Java applications in your phone, you must have
enough memory in your phone to store and run the custom application you want.
If you do not have enough memory, you can deinstall an application (see
“Deinstalling Java Apps” on page 162) or delete a Voice Record (see “Locking/
Unlocking a Voice Record” on page 150) to free some memory.
You can check to see how much Data, Program, and Heap memory your
phone has free:
•
Data refers to the memory used to store application data, such as image
files. Data memory determines memory space available to download
additional Java applications.
Program refers to the memory used to install and run applications.

any other amount owed to Company. Company reserves the right to interrupt Services if
Service appears to have excessive charges, payments are delinquent, or any unusual
calling patterns are observed on Customer’s account. Such interruption may be done to
protect Customer or Company as the Company determines in its sole discretion, but in no
event shall the Company be liable to the Customer or to any third party by reason of
interrupting or failing to cause an interruption of Service.
5. RATES, CHARGES, AND PAYMENT – Company shall issue invoices for Service.
Monthly Access charges shall be invoiced in advance. Airtime and long distance charges
shall be invoiced in arrears. Customer agrees to pay Company, on a timely basis, for
charges by Company for Service. Customer acknowledges that chargeable time for
telephone calls and Nextel Direct Connect call transmissions originated by a unit begin
when a connection is established with Company facilities. A new Nextel Direct Connect
call is initiated by a call participant if that participant responds more than six (6) seconds
after the other party finishes its Nextel Direct Connect transmission. Customer accepts
responsibility for Airtime charges from incoming telephone calls to its mobile unit from
the time that Customer responds to the call. If Customer disputes any Service charges,
Customer must pay the entire amount set forth in the invoice by the due date and submit a
written explanation within forty five (45) days from the date Company charges Customer
for the disputed Service. If Company determines that an error was made with respect to
any disputed Service charges, Company shall credit Customer’s account in the amount of
the error. If Customer does not pay the amount in dispute owed to Company, Company
may exercise any remedies it may have under this Agreement for non-payment of Service
charges. Company reserves the right to modify any and all elements of the Service charges
at any time and each such modification shall be effective immediately upon the
Company’s communication thereof to Customer, unless the Company’s communication
indicates a later effective date with respect to such modification. Payments which are not
received within thirty (30) days from the date of Company’s communication thereof to
Customer, Customer shall be subject to late payment charges of 1.5% of the disputed
Service charges (or the maximum interest rate permitted by law). The late payment
charge is for costs related to the non-timely payment and shall not be deemed an interest
payment. If the parties have agreed that payments are to be made in installments, or on
credit, Customer shall be responsible for paying amounts due as agreed. If Customer does
not make all payments when they are due, such failure shall be a default under this
Agreement and Company shall be entitled to exercise any remedies it may have under this
Agreement or at law or in equity. If the sale of the Equipment is on a credit or installment
basis and the Customer accepts delivery of the Equipment, the Customer may not return

payments as required under this Agreement until the Equipment sale price is paid in full.
6. NONPAYMENT/BREACH – A charge of $25.00 will be made by Company for any
check or negotiable instrument tendered by Customer and returned unpaid by a financial
institution for any reason. Company may demand payment by money order, cashier’s
check, or similarly secure form of payment, at Company’s discretion at any time or from
time to time. If Company obtains the services of a collection or repossession agency or an
attorney to assist Company in remedying Customer’s breach of this Agreement, including
but not limited to the nonpayment for charges hereunder, Customer shall be liable for this
expense. Customer understands that in the event of nonpayment of charges or any other
breach of the terms and conditions of this Agreement, in addition to any other remedies
Company may have, Company may temporarily or permanently terminate Service to
Customer. If Service is terminated and not reconnected within 30 days, all outstanding
payments to be made in installments are accelerated and immediately due in full. If
Company disconnects the Service, Customer shall be liable to satisfy and discharge all
outstanding amounts due and may, at Company’s sole discretion, be required to pay a
reconnect charge of $25.00 per unit, in addition to any advance payment of Service
charges that may be requested by the Company at its discretion, before the Company will
reactivate Service. Company reserves the right to modify the terms of Service as a
precondition to reactivating Service. If the Equipment is purchased on an installment
basis, or credit, the Company may take possession of the Equipment, at any time wherever
the same may be without legal process and without being responsible for loss and damage.

THIS MODEL PHONE MEETS THE GOVERNMENT’S REQUIREMENTS FOR
EXPOSURE TO RADIO WAVES.
Your wireless phone is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed and manufactured not to
exceed the emission limits for exposure to radiofrequency (RF) energy set by the Federal
Communications Commission of the U.S. Government. These limits are part of comprehensive
guidelines and establish permitted levels of RF energy for the general population. The guidelines
are based on standards that were developed by independent scientific organizations through
periodic and thorough evaluation of scientific studies. The standards include a substantial safety
margin designed to assure the safety of all persons, regardless of age and health.
The exposure standard for wireless mobile phones employs a unit of measurement known as the
Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit set by the FCC is 1.6W/kg.* Tests for SAR are
conducted using standard operating positions reviewed by the FCC with the phone transmitting at
its highest certified power level in all tested frequency bands. Although the SAR is determined at
the highest certified power level, the actual SAR level of the phone while operating can be well
below the maximum value. This is because the phone is designed to operate at multiple power
levels so as to use only the power required to reach the network. In general, the closer you are to a
wireless base station antenna, the lower the power output.
Before a phone model is available for sale to the public, it must be tested and certified to the FCC
that is does not exceed the limit established by the government-adopted requirement for safe
exposure. The tests are performed in positions and locations (e.g., at the ear and worn on the body)
as required by the FCC for each model. The highest SAR value for this model when tested for use
at the ear is 1.15 W/kg and when tested on the body, as described in this user guide, is 0.71 W/kg
during packet data transmission. (Body-worn measurements differ among phone models,
depending upon available accessories and FCC requirements.) While there may be differences
between the SAR levels of various phones and at various positions, they all meet the government
requirement for safe exposure.
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this model phone with all reported SAR
levels evaluated as in compliance with the FCC RF exposure guidelines. SAR information on this
model phone is on file with the FCC and can be found under the Display Grant section of http://
www.fcc.gov/oet/fccid after searching on FCC ID: AZ489FT5808.
Additional information on Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) can be found on the Cellular
Telecommunications Industry Association (CTIA) web-site at http://www.wow-com.com.
______________________________________
* In the United States and Canada, the SAR limit for mobile phones used by the public is 1.6
watts/kg (W/kg) averaged over one gram of tissue. The standard incorporates a substantial margin
of safety to give additional protection for the public and to account for any variations in
measurements.

The U.S. Food and Drug
Administration's Center for
Devices and Radiological Health
Consumer Update on Mobile
Phones
FDA has been receiving inquiries about the safety of mobile phones, including
cellular phones and PCS phones. The following summarizes what is known-and what remains unknown--about whether these products can pose a hazard to
health, and what can be done to minimize any potential risk. This information
may be used to respond to questions.
Why the concern?
Mobile phones emit low levels of radiofrequency energy (i.e., radiofrequency
radiation) in the microwave range while being used. They also emit very low
levels of radiofrequency energy (RF), considered non-significant, when in the
stand-by mode. It is well known that high levels of RF can produce biological
damage through heating effects (this is how your microwave oven is able to
cook food). However, it is not known whether, to what extent, or through what
mechanism, lower levels of RF might cause adverse health effects as well.
Although some research has been done to address these questions, no clear
picture of the biological effects of this type of radiation has emerged to date.
Thus, the available science does not allow us to conclude that mobile phones are
absolutely safe, or that they are unsafe. However, the available scientific
evidence does not demonstrate any adverse health effects associated with the
use of mobile phones.
What kinds of phones are in question?
Questions have been raised about hand-held mobile phones, the kind that have a
built-in antenna that is positioned close to the user's head during normal
telephone conversation. These types of mobile phones are of concern because of
the short distance between the phone's antenna--the primary source of the RF-and the person's head. The exposure to RF from mobile phones in which the
antenna is located at greater distances from the user (on the outside of a car, for
example) is drastically lower than that from hand-held phones, because a
person's RF exposure decreases rapidly with distance from the source. The
safety of so-called "cordless phones," which have a base unit connected to the
telephone wiring in a house and which operate at far lower power levels and
frequencies, has not been questioned.

US FDA Consumer Update
How much evidence is there that hand-held mobile phones
might be harmful?
Briefly, there is not enough evidence to know for sure, either way; however,
research efforts are on-going. The existing scientific evidence is conflicting and
many of the studies that have been done to date have suffered from flaws in their
research methods. Animal experiments investigating the effects of RF exposures
characteristic of mobile phones have yielded conflicting results. A few animal
studies, however, have suggested that low levels of RF could accelerate the
development of cancer in laboratory animals. In one study, mice genetically
altered to be predisposed to developing one type of cancer developed more than
twice as many such cancers when they were exposed to RF energy compared to
controls. There is much uncertainty among scientists about whether results
obtained from animal studies apply to the use of mobile phones. First, it is
uncertain how to apply the results obtained in rats and mice to humans. Second,
many of the studies that showed increased tumor development used animals that
had already been treated with cancer-causing chemicals, and other studies
exposed the animals to the RF virtually continuously--up to 22 hours per day.
For the past five years in the United States, the mobile phone industry has
supported research into the safety of mobile phones. This research has resulted
in two findings in particular that merit additional study:
1.
In a hospital-based, case-control study, researchers looked for an
association between mobile phone use and either glioma (a type of brain
cancer) or acoustic neuroma (a benign tumor of the nerve sheath). No
statistically significant association was found between mobile phone use
and acoustic neuroma. There was also no association between mobile
phone use and gliomas when all types of types of gliomas were considered
together. It should be noted that the average length of mobile phone
exposure in this study was less than three years.
When 20 types of glioma were considered separately, however, an
association was found between mobile phone use and one rare type of
glioma, neuroepithelliomatous tumors. It is possible with multiple
comparisons of the same sample that this association occurred by chance.
Moreover, the risk did not increase with how often the mobile phone was
used, or the length of the calls. In fact, the risk actually decreased with
cumulative hours of mobile phone use. Most cancer causing agents
increase risk with increased exposure. An ongoing study of brain cancers
by the National Cancer Institute is expected to bear on the accuracy and
217
repeatability of these results.(1)
2.
Researchers conducted a large battery of laboratory tests to assess the
effects of exposure to mobile phone RF on genetic material. These
included tests for several kinds of abnormalities, including mutations,
chromosomal aberrations, DNA strand breaks, and structural changes in
the genetic material of blood cells called lymphocytes. None of the tests
showed any effect of the RF except for the micronucleus assay, which
detects structural effects on the genetic material. The cells in this assay
showed changes after exposure to simulated cell phone radiation, but only
after 24 hours of exposure. It is possible that exposing the test cells to
radiation for this long resulted in heating. Since this assay is known to be
sensitive to heating, heat alone could have caused the abnormalities to
occur. The data already in the literature on the response of the
micronucleus assay to RF are conflicting. Thus, follow-up research is
necessary.(2)
FDA is currently working with government, industry, and academic groups to
ensure the proper follow-up to these industry-funded research findings.
Collaboration with the Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association
(CTIA) in particular is expected to lead to FDA providing research
recommendations and scientific oversight of new CTIA-funded research based
on such recommendations.
Two other studies of interest have been reported recently in the literature:
1.
Two groups of 18 people were exposed to simulated mobile phone signals
under laboratory conditions while they performed cognitive function tests.
There were no changes in the subjects' ability to recall words, numbers, or
pictures, or in their spatial memory, but they were able to make choices
more quickly in one visual test when they were exposed to simulated
mobile phone signals. This was the only change noted among more than 20
variables compared.(3)
2.
In a study of 209 brain tumor cases and 425 matched controls, there was no
increased risk of brain tumors associated with mobile phone use. When
tumors did exist in certain locations, however, they were more likely to be
on the side of the head where the mobile phone was used. Because this
nextel.com
218
US FDA Consumer Update
occurred in only a small number of cases, the increased likelihood was too
small to be statistically significant.(4)
In summary, we do not have enough information at this point to assure the
public that there are, or are not, any low incident health problems associated
with use of mobile phones. FDA continues to work with all parties, including
other federal agencies and industry, to assure that research is undertaken to
provide the necessary answers to the outstanding questions about the safety of
mobile phones.
What is known about cases of human cancer that have been
reported in users of hand-held mobile phones?
Some people who have used mobile phones have been diagnosed with brain
cancer. But it is important to understand that this type of cancer also occurs
among people who have not used mobile phones. In fact, brain cancer occurs in
the U.S. population at a rate of about 6 new cases per 100,000 people each year.
At that rate, assuming 80 million users of mobile phones (a number increasing at
a rate of about 1 million per month), about 4800 cases of brain cancer would be
expected each year among those 80 million people, whether or not they used
their phones. Thus it is not possible to tell whether any individual's cancer arose
because of the phone, or whether it would have happened anyway. A key
question is whether the risk of getting a particular form of cancer is greater
among people who use mobile phones than among the rest of the population.
One way to answer that question is to compare the usage of mobile phones
among people with brain cancer with the use of mobile phones among
appropriately matched people without brain cancer. This is called a case-control
study. The current case-control study of brain cancers by the National Cancer
Institute, as well as the follow-up research to be sponsored by industry, will
begin to generate this type of information.
What is FDA's role concerning the safety of mobile phones?
Under the law, FDA does not review the safety of radiation-emitting consumer
products such as mobile phones before marketing, as it does with new drugs or
medical devices. However, the agency has authority to take action if mobile
phones are shown to emit radiation at a level that is hazardous to the user. In
such a case, FDA could require the manufacturers of mobile phones to notify
users of the health hazard and to repair, replace or recall the phones so that the
hazard no longer exists.
Although the existing scientific data do not justify FDA regulatory actions at
this time, FDA has urged the mobile phone industry to take a number of steps to
assure public safety. The agency has recommended that the industry:
219
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
support needed research into possible biological effects of RF of the type
emitted by mobile phones;
design mobile phones in a way that minimizes any RF exposure to the user
that is not necessary for device function; and
cooperate in providing mobile phone users with the best possible
information on what is known about possible effects of mobile phone use
on human health.
At the same time, FDA belongs to an interagency working group of the
federal agencies that have responsibility for different aspects of mobile
phone safety to ensure a coordinated effort at the federal level. These
agencies are:
National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health
Environmental Protection Agency
Federal Communications Commission
Occupational Health and Safety Administration
National Telecommunications and Information Administration
The National Institutes of Health also participates in this group.
In the absence of conclusive information about any possible
risk, what can concerned individuals do?
If there is a risk from these products--and at this point we do not know that there
is--it is probably very small. But if people are concerned about avoiding even
potential risks, there are simple steps they can take to do so. For example, time
is a key factor in how much exposure a person receives. Those persons who
spend long periods of time on their hand-held mobile phones could consider
holding lengthy conversations on conventional phones and reserving the handheld models for shorter conversations or for situations when other types of
phones are not available.
People who must conduct extended conversations in their cars every day could
switch to a type of mobile phone that places more distance between their bodies
and the source of the RF, since the exposure level drops off dramatically with
distance. For example, they could switch to:
•
•
•
a mobile phone in which the antenna is located outside the vehicle,
a hand-held phone with a built-in antenna connected to a different antenna
mounted on the outside of the car or built into a separate package, or
a headset with a remote antenna to a mobile phone carried at the waist.

Again, the scientific data do not demonstrate that mobile phones are harmful.
But if people are concerned about the radiofrequency energy from these
products, taking the simple precautions outlined above can reduce any possible
risk.
