INSTALLING A BATTERY
Your pager requires one AAA battery for power. For
the best performance and longest life, we recommend
an alkaline battery such as Radio Shack Cat. No. 23555.
1. Slide the battery cover
latch away from the
cover to unlock it, then
slide the cover/belt clip
in the direction of the
arrow to remove it.
2. Insert a battery in the compartment slot closest to
the pager’s display, according to the polarity symbols (+ and –) marked inside.
6
17-7060.fm Page 7 Thursday, July 22, 1999 8:56 AM
Note: For quick access when the current battery
needs to be replaced, you can store an extra
AAA battery in the other slot in the compartment.
3. Replace the battery cover/belt clip and slide the
latch toward the cover to lock it.
When battery power becomes low, the pager displays
bAttErY. You have about 1 week’s battery
power left when this warning first appears.
LO
Caution: Removing the battery deletes all messages
and settings (such as the time) stored in the pager’s
memory. Be sure to reset the time (see “Setting the
Time” on Page 10) after you replace the battery.

PAGER IDEAS
Include your pager number in your answering machine or voice mail messages. This way, you can receive important messages immediately.
Leave your pager number at your children’s school
and with the babysitter so you can always be reached
in an emergency.
Establish code messages with your family or friends.
For example, your children can include the code 3333
to tell you they are home from school. Your spouse
can send 07734 to say hello! (Read it upside-down.)
If you have a cellular phone, give your pager number
instead of your cellular number. You can decide who
to call back on your cellular phone, without paying for
incoming cellular calls. This can drastically reduce
your monthly cellular bill!
