the code is not visible as you type.)
Tip:

If you can’t recall your lock code, try using the last four digits
of either your Social Security number or Sprint PCS Phone
number or try 0000 or NATL (6285). If none of these work, call
Sprint Customer Service at 1-888-211-4PCS (4727).

Roaming
Roaming is the ability to make or receive calls when you’re off
the Nationwide Sprint PCS Network. Your new Sprint PCS
VisionSM Picture Phone PM-A840 by Samsung works anywhere
on the Nationwide Sprint PCS Network and allows you to
roam on other 1900 and 800 MHz digital networks where we've
implemented roaming agreements with other carriers.
This section explains how roaming works as well as special
features that let you manage your roaming experience.
Section 2D: Controlling Your Roaming Experience
87
Understanding Roaming
Recognizing the Roaming Icon on the Display Screen
Your phone’s display screen always lets you know when
you’re off the Nationwide Sprint PCS Network. Any time you
are roaming, the phone displays the roaming icon (
).
Tip:
Remember, when you are using your phone off the
Nationwide Sprint PCS Network, always dial numbers using
11 digits (1 + area code + number).
Note:
Unless your Sprint PCS Service Plan includes roaming, you will
pay a higher per-minute rate for roaming calls.
Roaming on Other Digital Networks
When you’re roaming on digital networks, your call quality
and security will be similar to the quality you receive
when making calls on the Nationwide Sprint PCS Network.
However, you may not be able to access certain features,
such as Sprint PCS Vision.
Note:
88
If you’re on a call when you leave the Nationwide Sprint PCS
Network and enter an area where roaming is available, your
call is dropped. If your call is dropped in an area where you
think Sprint PCS Service is available, turn your phone off and
on again to reconnect to the Nationwide Sprint PCS Network.
Section 2D: Controlling Your Roaming Experience
Checking for Voicemail Messages While Roaming
When you are roaming off the Nationwide Sprint PCS
Network, you may not receive on-phone notification of new
voicemail messages. Callers can still leave messages, but you
will need to periodically check your voicemail for new
messages if you are in a roaming service area for an extended
period of time.
To check your voicemail while roaming:
1. Dial 1+area code+your Sprint PCS Phone number.
2. When you hear your voicemail greeting, press
.
3. Enter your pass code at the prompt and follow the voice
prompts.
When you return to the Nationwide Sprint PCS Network,
voicemail notification will resume as normal.

Setting Your Phone’s Roam Mode
Your Sprint PCS Phone allows you to control your roaming
capabilities. By using the Roaming menu option, you can
determine which signals your phone accepts.
Set Mode
Choose from three different settings on your dual-band
phone to control your roaming experience.
To set your phone’s roam mode:

.
Automatic seeks Sprint PCS Service. When Sprint PCS
Service is unavailable, the phone searches for an
alternate system.
Roaming Only forces the phone to seek a roaming
system. The previous setting (Sprint or Automatic) is
restored the next time the phone is turned on.
Sprint allows you to access the Nationwide Sprint PCS
Network only and prevents roaming on other
networks.
Section 2D: Controlling Your Roaming Experience
Controlling Roaming Charges Using
Call Guard
Your phone has two ways of alerting you when you are
roaming off the Nationwide Sprint PCS Network: the onscreen roaming icon and Call Guard. Call Guard makes it easy
to manage your roaming charges by requiring an extra step
before you can place or answer a roaming call. (This
additional step is not required when you make or receive calls
while on the Nationwide Sprint PCS Network.)
To turn Call Guard on or off:
1. Press Menu (

Voice Services
Tips for using Voice Dial:
䢇 Voice Dial works best in quieter environments.
䢇 When saying a number (Digit Dialing), speak at a normal
speed and say each digit clearly. There is no need to pause
between digits.
䢇 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.”
䢇 The phone recognizes only valid 7 or 10 digit North
American phone numbers.
䢇 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 “Adapting Digit Dial” on page 147 for
details.)
5. If the phone asks you, “Did You Say,” followed by an
incorrect name or number, say No. (If there are other
alternatives, the phone will prompt you with the next
one. You can also select the desired number by using
the navigation key. The phone will then dial the
number.)

Section 2I: Using Your Phone’s Voice Services
Adapting Digit Dial
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.
Note:
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:
䢇 Adapt digits in a quiet place.
䢇 Make sure you wait for the beep before starting to speak.
䢇 Speak clearly, but say each digit sequence naturally.
䢇 If you make a mistake while recording a sequence of
digits, or if there is an unexpected noise that spoils the
recording, you can say or select No when the prompt asks,
“Did the recording sound OK?” You will then be prompted
to re-record the sequence.
Section 2I: Using Your Phone’s Voice Services
147
Voice Services
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.
To adapt Digit Dial to your voice:
1. Press Menu (
) to access the main menu.
2. Select Settings (
).
3. Select Voice Service (
4. Select Settings (

. (The
phone prompts you to say the first sequence of digits.)
8. Wait for the beep, and then repeat the digits using a
normal tone of voice. (The phone plays back your
recording and asks you if the recording sounds “OK.”)
䡲 If the recording sounds OK (no mistakes and no
background noises), say Yes.
䡲 If you need to re-record the digits to fix any
problems, say No. (The phone then prompts you to
say the digits again.)
9. Wait for the beep, and then record the digits again.
(Repeat this step until you are satisfied with the
recording.)
10. After confirming that the recording sounds OK, repeat
the recording process with the next set of digits.
11. Repeat steps 8-10 for another nine sets of digits.
12. When you are finished with a full session, you will reach
a screen that reads, “Adaptation Complete.”

Part of getting the most out of your Sprint PCS Phone is learning
how the phone works and how to care for it. This section outlines
performance and safety guidelines that help you understand the
basic features of your phone’s operation.
Section 4A: Safety
243
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; you can also check it yourself
by pressing any key. Anytime the Power Save feature is activated, a
message is displayed 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 radiofrequency (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 Sprint PCS 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 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).
244
Section 4A: Safety
Maintaining Your Phone’s Peak Performance
There are several simple guidelines to operating your phone properly
and maintaining safe, satisfactory service.
䢇 Speak directly into the mouthpiece.
䢇 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.
䢇 Blocking the internal antenna located in the upper right corner
will reduce signal performance.
Note:
For the best care of your phone, only Sprint authorized
personnel should service your phone and accessories. Faulty
service may void the warranty.
Safety
Section 4A: Safety
245
Maintaining Safe Use of and Access to
Your Phone
FAILURE TO FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS OUTLINED MAY LEAD TO
SERIOUS PERSONAL INJURY AND POSSIBLE PROPERTY DAMAGE
Using Your Phone While Driving
Talking on your phone while driving (or operating the phone without
a hands-free device) is prohibited in some jurisdictions. Laws vary as
to specific restrictions. Remember that safety always comes first.
Tip:
Purchase an optional hands-free accessory at your local
Sprint Store, or call the Sprint PCS Accessory HotlineSM at
1-800-974-2221 or by dialing #222 on your Sprint PCS Phone.
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.
Using Your Phone Near Other Electronic Devices
Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from radiofrequency
(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:
246
Always turn off the phone in health care facilities and request
permission before using the phone near medical equipment.
Section 4A: Safety
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 your phone off
when in a blasting area or in other areas with signs indicating twoway radios should be turned off. Construction crews often use
remote-control RF devices to set off explosives.
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. Do not allow children to play with it as they
could hurt themselves and others, damage the phone or make calls
that increase your Sprint PCS Invoice.
Section 4A: Safety
247
Safety
Turn your phone off when you're in any area that has a potentially
explosive atmosphere. Although it's rare, your phone and accessories
could generate sparks. Sparks can cause an explosion or fire, resulting
in bodily injury or even death. These areas are often, but not always,
clearly marked. They include:
䢇 Fueling areas such as gas stations.
䢇 Below deck on boats.
䢇 Fuel or chemical transfer or storage facilities.
䢇 Areas where the air contains chemicals or particles such as grain,
dust, or metal powders.
䢇 Any other area where you would normally be advised to turn off
your vehicle’s engine.
Caring for the Battery
Protecting Your Battery
The guidelines listed below help you get the most out of your
battery’s performance.
䢇 Use only Sprint-approved batteries and battery chargers. These
chargers are designed to maximize battery life. Using other
batteries or chargers voids your warranty and may cause damage.
䢇 In order to avoid damage, charge the battery only in temperatures
that range from 32° F to 113° F (0° C to 45° C).
䢇 Don’t use the battery charger in direct sunlight or in high
humidity areas, such as the bathroom.
䢇 Never dispose of the battery by incineration.
䢇 Keep the metal contacts on top of the battery clean.
䢇 Don’t attempt to disassemble or short-circuit the battery.
䢇 The battery may need recharging if it has not been used for a long
period of time.
䢇 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.
䢇 Don’t store the battery in high temperature areas for long periods
of time. It’s best to follow these storage rules:
Less than one month:
-4° F to 140º F (-20° C to 60° C)
More than one month:
-4° F to 113° F (-20° C to 45° C)
Disposal of Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) Batteries
For safe disposal options of your Li-Ion batteries, contact your nearest
Sprint authorized 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:
248
For safety, do not handle a damaged or leaking Li-Ion battery.
Section 4A: Safety
Hearing Aid Compatibility With
Mobile Phones
When some mobile phones are used near some hearing devices
(hearing aids and cochlear implants), users may detect a buzzing,
humming, or whining noise. Some hearing devices are more immune
than others to this interference noise, and phones also vary in the
amount of interference they generate.
The wireless telephone industry has developed ratings for some of
their mobile phones, to assist hearing device users in finding phones
that may be compatible with their hearing devices. Not all phones
have been rated. Phones that are rated have the rating on their box or
a label on the box.
The ratings are not guarantees. Results will vary depending on the
user’s hearing device and hearing loss. If your hearing device happens
to be vulnerable to interference, you may not be able to use a rated
phone successfully. Trying out the phone with your hearing device is
the best way to evaluate it for your personal needs.
Hearing devices may also be measured for immunity to this type of
interference. Your hearing device manufacturer or hearing health
professional may help you find results for your hearing device. The
more immune your hearing aid is, the less likely you are to experience
interference noise from mobile phones.
Section 4A: Safety
249
Safety
M-Ratings: Phones rated M3 or M4 meet FCC requirements and are
likely to generate less interference to hearing devices than phones
that are not labeled. M4 is the better/higher of the two ratings. TRatings: Phones rated T3 or T4 meet FCC requirements and are likely
to be more usable with a hearing device’s telecoil (“T Switch” or
“Telephone Switch”) than unrated phones. T4 is the better/higher of
the two ratings. (Note that not all hearing devices have telecoils in
them.)
Acknowledging Special Precautions and
the FCC Notice
FCC Notice
This phone may cause TV or radio interference if used in close
proximity to receiving equipment. The FCC can require you to stop
using the phone if such interference cannot be eliminated.
Vehicles using liquefied petroleum gas (propane or butane) must
comply with the National Fire Protection Standard (NFPA-58). For a
copy of this standard, contact the National Fire Protections
Association, One Batterymarch Park, Quincy, MA 02269, Attn.:
Publication Sales Division.
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.
Body-Worn Operation
To maintain compliance with FCC RF exposure guidelines, if you wear
a handset on your body, use the Sprint supplied or approved carrying
case, holster or other body-worn accessory. Use of non-Sprint
approved accessories may violate FCC RF exposure guidelines.
For more information about RF exposure, visit the FCC Website at
www.fcc.gov.
250
Section 4A: Safety
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 Sprint PCS VisionSM
Picture Phone PM-A840 by Samsung® are:
Safety
AMPS mode (Part 22):
Head: 0.777 W/kg; Body-worn: 0.849 W/kg
PCS mode (Part 24):
Head:1.29 W/kg; Body-worn: 0.292 W/kg
FCC Radiofrequency Emission
This phone meets the FCC Radiofrequency Emission Guidelines.
FCC ID number: A3LSPHA840.
