Battery Use and Maintenance
• The Motorola iDEN Approved Lithium Ion
chargers provide optimum performance. Other
chargers may not fully charge the iDEN Lithium
Ion battery or may yield a reduced number of
lifetime charge cycles.
• Extreme temperatures degrade battery
performance. Do not store the battery where
temperatures exceed 140°F (60°C) or fall below
-4°F (-20°C).
• Lithium Ion batteries have a self discharge rate
and without use, lose about 1% of their charge
per day.
Powering On and Off
• The battery capacity is degraded if the battery is
stored for long periods while fully charged. If
long term storage is required, store at half
capacity.

Using the Memory Card
Your i885 phone comes with a 64 MB Micro SD
memory card, memory card reader, and memory
card adaptor.
A memory card is a removable flash memory card
that you can use to store pictures, videos, and
audio files. The memory card can be inserted in
your phone or connected to your computer using
the memory card reader and memory card adaptor.
When the memory card is in your phone, many
types of pictures, videos, and audio files stored on
the memory card can be viewed or played using
your phone’s Media Center. Music files stored on
the memory card can be played using your phone’s
MP3 Music Player.
For complete instructions on using the memory
card with your phone and with your computer, see
“Memory Card” on page 26.

Memory Card
Memory Card
Your i885 phone comes with a 64 MB memory
card, memory card adaptor, and memory card
reader.
A memory card is a removable flash memory card
that you can use to store pictures, videos, and
audio files. The memory card can be inserted in
your phone or connected to your computer using
the memory card adaptor and the memory card
reader.
When the memory card is in your phone, many
types of pictures, videos, and audio files stored on
the memory card can be viewed or played using
your phone’s Media Center. Music files stored on
the memory card can be played using your phone’s
MP3 Music Player.
You can use a memory card reader and adapter or
a USB data cable to connect to your computer’s
USB port and access the memory card from your
computer. This lets you save files from your
computer to your memory card or save files from
your memory card to your computer.
26
Ensuring Files on the Memory
Card Are Compatible With
Your Phone
When your memory card is connected to your
computer, your computer lets you save files to your
memory card in ways that may not allow you to
access these files when the memory card is in your
i885 phone.
To ensure the files on your memory card are
compatible with your i885 phone, use the folder
structure, filename rules, and formats described in
the following sections.
Folder Structure
The first time you insert the memory card into your
phone, your phone creates folders on the memory
card. When you save files from your computer to
the memory card, save each file to the appropriate
folder:
• The Music folder is for music files you will play
using the audio player. Files in this folder cannot
be accessed from the Media Center.
• The Podcast folder is for podcasts you will play
using the audio player. Files in this folder cannot
be accessed from the Media Center.
Ensuring Files on the Memory Card Are Compatible With Your Phone
• The Audio folder is for audio files you will play
using the Media Center. Files in this folder
cannot be accessed from the audio player.
• The Image folder in for pictures you will view
using the Media Center.
• The Video folder is for videos you will play using
the Media Center.
Note: Only files with names no longer than 32
characters can be stored in your phone’s
memory. When you copy or move a file
with a longer name to your phone’s
memory, you are prompted to rename the
file.
Because your phone creates these folders the first
time the memory card is inserted, you should insert
the memory card into your phone at least once
before using it with your computer.
• The file name must be in a language your phone
can display. To see which languages your phone
can display, select Settings > Display/Info >
Language. Your phone can display the
languages listed and other languages that use
the same alphabets.
Filename Rules
File Formats
When naming files stored on the memory card, the
following rules apply:
MP3 Music Player
• The file name can contain both ASCII and
Unicode characters.
• File names up to 32 characters long, including
the file extension and folder name, can be
displayed by your phone. File names up to 255
characters long, including the file extension and
folder name, can be read by your phone. If a file
name is more than 32 characters long, but no
more than 255 characters long, your phone
displays an abbreviated name for the file, but
does not change the name of the file on the
memory card.
These file formats are compatible with your
phone’s MP3 Music Player:

How Your Music Files Are
Organized
The MP3 Music Player groups the music files on
the memory card into folders and lists.
Since you will probably want to use the MP3 Music
Player primarily to play songs, the MP3 Music
Player treats the music files on the memory card as
songs when grouping and organizing them.
The MP3 Music Player uses metadata found in
most music files to group the files on the memory
card by album, artist, and genre. You can also
create your own groupings of music files, called
playlists.
When you access the MP3 Music Player, you see
that the music files are grouped into these folders:
• Songs — All music files on the memory card
inserted in your phone, listed alphabetically by
title.
• Playlists — Folders and lists you have created.
If you have not created any playlists, this folder
contains only the Favorite playlist, which is
empty.
• Albums — Songs grouped by album. The
albums are listed alphabetically by title. The
songs on the albums are listed in the order that
they normally appear on the album.
37
MP3 Music Player
• Artists — Songs grouped by artist. The artists
are listed alphabetically by name. Within each
artist’s folder, the songs are listed alphabetically
by title.
• Genres — Songs grouped by genre. The genre
are listed alphabetically by name. Within each
genre’s folder, the songs are listed alphabetically
by title.
• Podcasts — Podcast episodes grouped by
program. The programs are listed alphabetically
by name. Within each program folder, the
episodes are listed by date with the newest first.
In the Albums, Artists, and Genres folders, any
music files that do not contain enough metadata to
be grouped by album, artist, or genre are placed in
a folder labelled “Unknown”.
Playing Music While Files Are
Loading
The first time the audio player encounters music
files on your memory card, it must load and

keypad to enter that letter.
Playing a List, Repeat, and
Shuffle
When you select an music file to play, the MP3
Music Player plays this music file and then plays
the other music files grouped with it. The repeat
and shuffle features help determine which of these
songs are played.
If you are not using the repeat or shuffle features,
the MP3 Music Player plays the music file you
select and then plays the rest of the files in the list
or folder, in the order they appear, until it gets to
the end of the list or folder. The MP3 Music Player
then goes to the beginning of the list and pauses
until you resume playing.
Working with Playlists
The repeat feature lets you set the MP3 Music
Player to play all the music files in a list or folder, in
order, starting again at the beginning of the list
when it gets to the end, without pausing or
stopping. It also lets you set the MP3 Music Player
to play one music file repeatedly, starting over as

Understanding Bluetooth® Access Settings
Bluetooth®
Your i885 phone is a Bluetooth device. Bluetooth
devices create seamless voice and data
connections with other Bluetooth devices, such as
another Bluetooth phone, a Bluetooth pen,
headset, or desktop adaptor. These connections
are made wirelessly.
You can use your i885 phone to send information
such as Contacts entries, Datebook events, and
pictures to another Bluetooth device.
Devices must be within 32 feet (10 meters) of your
phone to be recognized.
Note: This measurement represents optimal
conditions. Actual conditions may require
you to position your phone closer.
You can only connect your phone to one device at
a time.
Understanding Bluetooth®
Access Settings
A Bluetooth device can have either automatic or
ask security access. The first time a Bluetooth
device connects to your i885 phone, you must
grant the device permission to connect. You can
then change the access setting of the device to
either automatic or ask.
If you set a device to automatic, then that device
can connect automatically to your phone when it is
in range. If you set a device to ask, then that device
must request permission before it can connect to
your phone.
Devices are automatically granted permission
during the 10 seconds after bonding. For more
information about bonding, see “Bluetooth® Bonds”
on page 148.
The default for hands free devices, such as
Bluetooth headsets, is automatic.

distinguish your phone from other Bluetooth
devices.

Connection
The following sections cover how to connect your
phone to another Bluetooth device.
Note: Some Bluetooth devices only have full
functionality when DTMF dialing is set to
On. See “Phone Calls Features” on
page 186.
Sharing Your Phone’s Bluetooth®
Address
To bond with your phone, devices must have your
phone’s Bluetooth address. To find devices that
you want to bond with, you can make your phone
discoverable, so that other devices learn your
phone’s Bluetooth address. You can also have
your phone search for Bluetooth devices to learn
their addresses.
Allowing Bluetooth® Devices to Find Your
Phone
To let devices find your phone and its Bluetooth
address, place your phone in discoverable mode.
147
Bluetooth®
Discoverable mode lasts for the duration selected
under Find Me Duration in the Bluetooth Setup
menu. During this time, other devices that are
within range can detect your phone. You can then
choose to grant or deny each device’s request to
bond.
Note: You must grant the device’s request in
order to receive information from the
device on your phone.
To start discoverable mode, from the main
menu, select Bluetooth > Find Me.
Discovering Bluetooth® Devices
To have your phone search for Bluetooth devices:
From the main menu, select Bluetooth > Hands
Free > [Find Devices].
A list of hands free devices displays. Devices
that do not have a name are listed by their
Bluetooth address.
To stop the search and go to the list of found
devices, press A under Stop.
To stop the search and return to the previous
screen, press A under Cancel.
148
Bluetooth® Bonds
A bond is an encryption key that is generated when
two Bluetooth devices exchange a common PIN.
This key verifies the identity of each device, and
encrypts any data transferred between the devices.
Once the PIN is exchanged, the devices do not
have to be in discoverable mode in order to
exchange information. You only need to create a
bond once between two devices.
If you search for devices and you select a device
that you are currently bonded with from the list of
found devices, then the current bond with that
device will be voided. You will have to re-establish
the bond.
Your i885 requires that you create a bond in order
to connect with another device. However, you can
choose to establish bonds with devices without
connecting.
Note: Devices are automatically granted
permission during the 10 seconds after
bonding.
Bluetooth® PINs
Bluetooth devices exchange PINs in order to
establish encrypted transfers between them. When
prompted, enter the Bluetooth PINs.
Making a Bluetooth® Connection
Some Bluetooth devices ship with Bluetooth PINs.
Please refer to your Bluetooth device’s user guide
to locate this information.
If a device ships without a Bluetooth PIN, then you
can enter any PIN for that device. To establish a
connection to that device, enter the same PIN for
both your phone and the device. For example, if
you enter 1234 as the device’s PIN, then enter
1234 as your phone’s PIN.
To create a bond between your phone and another
device:
1 From the main menu, select Bluetooth.
2 If you want to create a bond and connect with

GPS (Global Positioning System) Enabled
GPS (Global Positioning
System) 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. Also,
nearby radio and electronic equipment may block
or interfere with reception from these distant
satellites. SEE: “IMPORTANT: Things to Keep in
Mind”.
When you make a 911 emergency call, the GPS
feature of your phone 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.
166
You can also use the GPS feature to view your
approximate location. Location information
appears on the phone’s display.
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 the GPS feature of your phone
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
IMPORTANT: Things to Keep in Mind
• Between tall buildings or under dense
tree-cover
• Near a powerful radio or television tower
• Some radios, entertainment equipment and
other electronic devices may generate
signals that can block or interfere with the
GPS receiver ability to receive the distant
satellite signals, particularly when such
devices are operating in close proximity to
the GPS receiver. Therefore, in a 911 call, or
when otherwise using the GPS location
function, always move your phone away
from any such devices.
• When your GPS antenna is covered (for
example, by your hand or other object) or
facing the ground
• In temperature extremes outside the
operating limits of your 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 your 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 170.
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 your phone’s location
calculation: if such assistance information
becomes unavailable, it may reduce the speed and
accuracy of the location calculation.
167
GPS (Global Positioning System) Enabled
The satellites used by the GPS feature of your
phone 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 the GPS
feature of your phone.
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, the GPS
feature of your phone begins to seek information to
calculate your approximate location. It will take
the GPS feature of your phone 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.
168
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 166), 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 the emergency
response center, if the center has the capability to
receive such information.
Viewing Your Approximate Location
See “Enhancing GPS Performance” on page 170
for information on how to help your phone
determine your location.
Viewing Your Approximate
Location
It may take your phone several minutes to
complete the process of determining your location.
During this time, a message usually appears on
your phone’s display saying your phone is
scanning for satellites. For tips on getting the best
location calculation, see “Enhancing GPS
Performance” on page 170.
1 From the main menu, select GPS > Position.
2 Scroll to view the entire screen.
The Position screen displays the updated
information.
This displays the following information about the
last time your location was calculated:
To cancel a location calculation before it is
completed:
• The time (as Greenwich Mean Time) and date
that the location was last calculated
• The approximate location, expressed as latitude
and longitude
• The estimated accuracy of the calculated
location. This estimate of accuracy is only a very
rough estimate and may vary substantially from
the actual accuracy of the approximate location
information reported.
• The number of satellites used to calculate the
location. In general, more satellites make for
better accuracy.
To calculate your location again:
Press A under Refresh.
Press A under Cancel to return to the Position
screen. -orPress e to return to the idle screen.
Each time approximate location of your phone 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 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.

Enhancing GPS Performance
Sometimes the GPS feature of your phone 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 the phone’s display, you will
see a message indicating that your phone cannot
access satellites.
• Hold your phone to enhance reception. Signals
from GPS satellites are transmitted to your GPS
antenna, which is in your phone antenna. 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
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.
• Extend your phone antenna.
170
• Move away from electronic devices. Radios,
entertainment devices, and other electronic
devices may generate interfering signals that
may prevent GPS receiver operation if they are
in close proximity to the phone. Move your
phone away from such devices when using the
GPS-Enabled feature.
Updating Satellite Almanac Data
• Stand still. If possible, stand still until your phone
is finished determining your location. Moving
your phone at a walking pace while your phone
is calculating your approximate location may
substantially decrease GPS performance.
• In a car. When using the GPS Enabled feature in
a car, position your 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 your 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 your
service provider, the network will provide your
phone with information that helps determine
your location more quickly and accurately.
Updating Satellite Almanac
Data
Note: This feature may not be offered by Boost
Mobile®.
Another way to keep the GPS feature of your
phone 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
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.
171
GPS (Global Positioning System) Enabled
If your satellite almanac data is out of date, your
phone may prompt you to update it. Follow the
instructions that appear on the phone’s display.
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 the location of your
phone.You may set your phone to one of these
GPS privacy options.
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 main menu, select GPS > Privacy.
2 If your GPS PIN security feature is enabled,
enter your GPS PIN. (See “Setting the GPS PIN
Security Feature” for more information.)
3 Select the privacy option you want:
• Restricted — No Java or similar software
applications may view the location of your
phone. However, location information may still
be available to the phone’s owner, fleet
manager, or account administrator.
• Unrestricted — All applications may view the
location of your phone, without notifying you.
• By Permission — When an application
attempts to view the location of your phone,
you will be prompted to give permission.
However, location information may still be
available to the phone’s owner, fleet manager,
or account administrator.
Setting the GPS PIN Security Feature
To prevent your GPS privacy settings from being
altered without your knowledge, your GPS privacy
option can be protected by a PIN.
When you receive your phone, the GPS security
feature is turned off, so you do not have to enter a
GPS PIN to access your GPS privacy options. If
you turn this feature on, you will be required to
enter a GPS PIN to access your GPS privacy
options.
To turn the GPS Enabled security feature on or off:
1 From the main menu, select Settings >
Security > GPS PIN.
2 Select On or Off.
3 Enter the current GPS PIN.
Note: When you receive your phone, your GPS
PIN is 0000.
4 Press A under Ok.

Using GPS with Map Software
You can use the GPS feature of your phone 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
travel in a vehicle.
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 170
for more details on obtaining good location
information.
Note: Because your phone is continuously
determining your location, using the GPS
feature of your phone with map software
uses the 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.
To do this, connect your phone to your laptop (or
other device) with a serial data cable, and set your
phone to transmit data (see “Getting Started” on
page 174). Your phone then provides your
approximate location to the device running the map

profiles, power off your phone, or delete it (or the
profile it is based on) from the list of profiles.
