or purse, or in a convenient carrying case you can wear on your belt.
The ADVISOR Message Receiver stores complete messages in memory, continuously keeps you informed of the status
of each message, and provides message-memory control with a variety of memory-management functions.
The Motorola ADVISOR Message Receiver offers many convenient features not found on most pagers; therefore, we
suggest that you read this operating instructions manual carefully to get the full benefit from your pager.

ADVISOR STANDARD FEATURES
Liquid Crystal Display (LCD): The four-line LCD offers a high-contrast dot-matrix display for easy readability of characters. Up to 80 characters can be displayed at a time. The display is backlighted when the Function button is pressed
and held for over one second while the display is active. The backlight stays on as long as there is activity on the display.
To manually turn the light off, press and hold the Function button again for over one second.
Message-Status Screen: The ADVISOR message-status screen provides complete message-status information. When
the message-status screen is displayed, it shows the number of messages in memory and the status (locked, read, or
unread) of each stored message. This screen also displays the current time and date (if set), pager conditions such as
low battery, memory full, and alarm activated.
Memory Capacity: The ADVISOR pager can store up to 20 personal and/or group calls (optional) messages in its
memory. A single message may be 2000 characters in length. The ADVISOR can also store up to 16 Mail Drop messages
(optional). An additional 10 messages can be transferred to the Personal Message File (if equipped) and 10 messages
can be stored in the History Dump File. The maximum number of characters the ADVISOR can accept is 6400.
Message Time and Date Stamping: The last line of all incoming and
stored messages shows the time of day and the date that the message
was received. (NOTE: The time and date must be correctly set for this
feature to be accurate.)
02:SALES MEETING HAS
BEEN CHANGED TO 1:00
9:10 AM
Memory Retention: When the pager is turned off, all messages and
pager settings (time and date, alarm, alerts – audible or silent) remain in
memory.
Memory-Full Indication: If more than 20 messages (or 6400 characters)
are stored in memory, an incoming message could cause the earliest
unlocked, read message to be transferred to the History Dump File (if
equipped with that option), or dropped from the pager’s memory. A
“ MEMORY FULL ” warning on the message-status screen indicates that
a message may be pushed out of memory by a new incoming message.

Messages in the History Dump File are read and deleted in the same
manner as the Personal Message File; or the History Dump File can be
deleted in its entirety by selecting the delete function from the messagestatus screen. The message number indicator is preceded by a History
File symbol ( Ù ) to indicate that you are reading messages which have
been transferred to the History Dump File.
Mail Drop (Information Services): If your ADVISOR is equipped to receive Information Services such as sports scores, weather, or news, these
messages are displayed on the second line of the message-status screen.
They differ from personal messages as follows:
• Each type of Information Service appears in a specific memory location
on the second line of the message-status screen. For example: Sports
scores may appear in memory location #1 on the second line, and
weather in memory location #2.

• As updates are received, the information in the specific memory location is replaced by the new information.
• Information Service messages cannot be locked or transferred to the History Dump File.
• Information Services messages do not remain in memory when the ADVISOR is turned off unless the pager is equipped
with “Save Mail Drop Messages” option.
Delete Memory Retention: When this option is installed, all messages are discarded from the ADVISOR memory when
the pager is turned off.
Auto Alarm Power-Up: When this option is installed, and the pager alarm

BATTERY INFORMATION
7/08/90
õ X4:00 PM
The ADVISOR pager is designed to operate with a single AAA-size alkaline
Message-Status Screen with
battery (NRN4819A). AAA-size alkaline batteries from other manufacturOut-of-Range Indicators
ers may give comparable performance, but have not been tested by Motorola.
NOTE
Do not use carbon zinc batteries in the ADVISOR pager.
Installing/Replacing the Battery (Refer to Figure 1 on page 45):
a. Locate the black locking switch on the bottom of the pager.
b. Slide the black locking switch to the unlock position. This reveals a red indicator and shows that the battery compartment cover is in the unlocked condition.
43
c. Note the triangular arrow located on the square textured area on the battery door; slide the door in the direction
of the arrow until the battery compartment door is completely free from the pager housing.
d. Align the battery so that the battery’s polarity markings (+ and –) match the markings in the battery compartment and
insert the battery.
WARNING
DO NOT PUT THE BATTERY IN BACKWARD. IF THE BATTERY IS INSERTED BACKWARD, ALL MESSAGES AND TIME INFORMATION WILL BE LOST.
e. Reinstall the battery compartment cover in reverse order of disassembly by sliding the cover onto the bottom of the
pager in the opposite direction of the arrows.
f. Make sure to slide the black locking switch to the locked position.
Low-Battery Indication: When the battery condition is low, the pager
emits an alert at the lowest volume level and displays a low-battery warning
on the message-status screen. Note: The audible alert can be programmed out of the pager so that only the warning display indicates a low
battery.
