Getting Started
Setting Up Your Phone
Before using your i570 phone:
䢇 Make sure your SIM card is in place.
䢇 Charge the battery.
䢇 Turn on your phone.
See “Getting Started With Your Phone” on page 12 for more
information.
Determining If Your Phone Is Already Activated
If you purchased your phone at a Sprint Store or received it in
the mail, it is probably ready to use.
If your phone is not activated, please call 1-800-639-6111
from a landline phone.
Tip
You must be in an area covered by the Nextel National
Network when you first power up your phone.
When you power up your phone the first time, it performs a
series of security checks. For example, it verifies the phone is
Nextel-approved and the correct SIM card is installed. If you
don’t pass the security checks, your phone displays messages
and screen prompts showing what to do next. If you still
encounter security messages, call Nextel Customer Service at
1-800-639-6111 from a landline phone.

Phone Basics
IMPORTANT
In some cases, Contacts and Groups may not be
accessible if you move your SIM card to another
phone. Contacts and Groups created with your i570
phone may not be readable by an older iDEN SIMbased phone.
Using Your Phone’s Battery and Charger
WARNING
Use only Nextel-approved or Motorola-approved
batteries and chargers with your phone. The failure
to use a Nextel-approved or Motorola-approved
battery and charger may increase the risk that your
phone overheats, catches fire, or explodes, resulting
in serious bodily injury, death, or property damage.
Nextel-approved and Motorola-approved batteries and
accessories can be found at Sprint Stores, through Motorola,
or by calling 1-866-866-7509 to order. They’re also available
at www.nextel.com – just click the Accessories link.
Battery Capacity
Your phone is equipped with a Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) battery. It
allows you to recharge your battery before it is fully drained.
When the battery reaches 5% of its capacity, your phone
makes a sound and displays a message. When there are
approximately two minutes of talk time left, the phone
sounds an audible alert and then powers down.
Note
Long light settings, searching for service, vibrate mode,
browser use, and other variables may reduce the battery’s talk
and standby time.
Section 1B: Your Phone: The Basics
13
Tip
Be sure to watch your phone’s battery level indicator and
charge the battery before it runs out of power.
Battery Use and Battery Safety
䢇
Motorola recommends you always use Motorola-branded
batteries and chargers. The warranty does not cover
damage caused by non-Motorola batteries and/or
chargers.
Caution
䢇
䢇
䢇
䢇
14
Use of an unqualified battery or charger may present
a risk of fire, explosion, leakage, or other hazard.
Improper battery use, or use of a damaged battery,
may result in a fire, explosion, or other hazard.
Battery usage by children should be supervised.
Important: Motorola mobile devices are designed to work
best with qualified batteries. If you see a message on your
display such as Invalid Battery or Unable to Charge, take the
following steps:
䡲 Remove the battery and inspect it to confirm that it
bears a Motorola “Original Equipment” hologram;
䡲 If there is no hologram, the battery is not a qualified
battery;
䡲 If there is a hologram, replace the battery and retry
charging it;
䡲 If the message remains, contact a Motorola
Authorized Service Center.
New batteries or batteries stored for a long time may take
more time to charge.
Charging precautions: When charging your battery, keep it
near room temperature. Never expose batteries to
temperatures below 0°C (32°F) or above 45°C (113°F)
when charging. Always take your mobile device with you
when you leave your vehicle.
Section 1B: Your Phone: The Basics
䢇
䢇
䢇
When storing your battery, keep it in a cool, dry place.
It is normal for battery life to decrease over time, and for
the battery to exhibit shorter runtime between charges or
require more frequent or longer charging times.
Avoid damage to battery and mobile device. Do not
disassemble, open, crush, bend, deform, puncture, shred,
or submerge the battery or mobile device. Avoid dropping
the battery or mobile device, especially on a hard surface.
If your battery or mobile device has been subjected to
such damage, take it to a Motorola Authorized Service
Center before using. Do not attempt to dry it with an
appliance or heat source, such as a hair dryer or
microwave oven.
Use care when handling a charged battery — particularly
when placing it inside a pocket, purse, or other container
with metal objects. Contact with metal objects (e.g.,
jewelry, keys, beaded chains) could complete an electrical
circuit (short circuit), causing the battery to become very
hot, which could cause damage or injury.
Phone Basics
䢇
Promptly dispose of used batteries in accordance with
local regulations. Contact your local recycling center
for proper battery disposal.
WARNING
Never dispose of batteries in a fire because they may
explode.

Charging the Battery
Your phone’s Li-Ion battery is rechargeable and should be

phone.
Keeping track of your battery’s charge is important. If your
battery level becomes too low, your phone automatically
turns off, and you lose all the information you were just
working on.
Section 1B: Your Phone: The Basics
17
For a quick check of your phone’s battery level, glance at the
battery charge indicator located on your display screen. If the
battery charge is getting too low, the phone makes a sound

Making Emergency Phone Calls
Your phone supports emergency calling. Emergency phone
calls can be made even when your SIM card is blocked or not
in your phone.
Dial 911 and press O 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 call, your phone’s GPS Enabled
feature can help emergency service personnel find you, if you
are in a location where your phone's GPS antenna has
established a clear view of the open sky and your local
emergency response center has the equipment to process
location information. See “Using GPS Enabled” on page 144,
Section 2A: Making and Answering Calls
37
and particularly “IMPORTANT: Things to Keep in Mind” on
page 144 and “Making an Emergency Call” on page 146, for
more information on the limitations of this feature. Because
of the limitations of this feature, always provide your best
knowledge of your location to the emergency response center
when you make an emergency call.
IMPORTANT
Always report your location to the 911 operator when
placing an emergency call. Some designated
emergency call takers, known as Public Safety
Answering Points (PSAPs) may not be equipped to
receive GPS location information from your phone.
Emergency calls cannot be placed while the keypad
is locked.
If you have not registered on the network,
emergency calls cannot be placed while your SIM
card is in your phone.
If you are bringing your phone number to Nextel
from your previous carrier, you may receive a
temporary telephone number while your Nextel
phone is being programmed with your permanent
phone number. If you make a call to 911 and the call
fails, the 911 emergency response center will not be
able to call you back on your Nextel phone if in the
meantime, your Nextel phone has been
programmed with your permanent telephone
number. If the call is disconnected before location
and details have been provided, call 911 again and
advise that you were disconnected.

Nextel Direct TalkCalls
Nextel Direct Talk allows for two-way radio communication
“off the network” between two or more phones equipped
with this capability. This feature is very useful in areas
without network coverage.
You can make –
䢇 Code calls – two-way radio calls conducted off the network
and using open channels and codes. In these calls, anyone
using your same channel and code can hear your
conversation.
䢇 Private calls – two-way radio calls conducted off the
network and using the wireless phone numbers of the
participants. In these calls, others using the same channel
cannot listen in.
When using Direct Talk mode, the two phones should be a
minimum of six feet apart to maximize performance and
improve transmission range. You can only make Direct Talk
calls to users located within your range. This varies according
to terrain, man-made structures, and atmospheric conditions.
The following features are not available while in Direct Talk
mode:
䢇 On-network phone calls.
䢇 On-network Direct Connect, Group Connect, Talkgroup
calls, and Call Alerts.
䢇 Data services.
䢇 Sending and receiving messages.
䢇 Call timer.
䢇 Sending Call Alerts.

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 144.
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.
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.
144
Section 2G: Using the Phone’s Tools
Tools
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:
䢇 In underground locations.
䢇 Inside of buildings, trains, or other covered vehicles.
䢇 Under any other metal or concrete roof or structure.
䢇 Between tall buildings or under dense tree-cover.
䢇 Near a powerful radio or television tower.
䢇 When your GPS antenna is covered (for example, by your
hand or other object) or facing the ground.
䢇 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 149.
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
Section 2G: Using the Phone’s Tools
145
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.
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 and press O 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.
In some cases, your local 911 emergency response center may
not be equipped to receive GPS location information. For this
146
Section 2G: Using the Phone’s Tools
Note
Tools
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 144),
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.
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.
See “Enhancing GPS Performance” on page 149 for
information on how to help your phone determine your
location.
Viewing Your Approximate Location
1. Press M > GPS > Position.
2. Scroll to view the entire screen.
This displays the following information about the last time
your location was calculated:
䢇 The time (as Greenwich Mean Time) and date that the
location was last calculated.
䢇 The approximate location, expressed as latitude and
longitude.
Section 2G: Using the Phone’s Tools
147
䢇
䢇
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:
䊳
Press Rfrsh (left softkey).
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 149.
The Position screen displays the updated information.
To cancel a location calculation before it is completed:
䊳
Press Cancel (right softkey) to return to the Position
screen.
– or –
Press o to return to standby mode.
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.
148
Section 2G: Using the Phone’s Tools
Enhancing GPS Performance
Tools
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.
To improve accuracy and increase your chances of a
successful calculation, do the following while your phone is
determining your approximate location:
䢇 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.
䢇 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.
䢇 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.
䢇 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,
Section 2G: Using the Phone’s Tools
149
the GPS antenna has best access to GPS signals in a car
when placed near a window.
Note
䢇
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. 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 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.
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 service number.
150
Section 2G: Using the Phone’s Tools
Using GPS With Map Software
Tools
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.
To do this, connect your phone to your laptop (or other
device) with a data cable and set your phone to transmit data
(see “To connect your phone to your laptop or other device:”
on page 152). 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 149 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.
Section 2G: Using the Phone’s Tools
151
Software Compatibility

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 connect your phone to your laptop or other device:
1. Open the flap covering the accessory connector by

Message Notifications
When you receive a message, your phone notifies you with
text on the display and a notification tone or vibration. You
can access the message or dismiss the notification.
If you dismiss the notification, the message is not deleted. It
can be accessed through the message center.
If you are not on a phone call when you receive a message,
your phone sounds a notification tone every 30 seconds until
you access the message, you dismiss the notification, or the
alert time-out expires.
When you are on a phone call, you can receive message
notifications for all types of messages except MMS messages.
For other types of messages, your phone may sound a
notification tone during the call or after you end the call,
depending on how you set your notification options.

Using Nextel Voicemail
Tip
To receive voicemail messages, you must first set up your
voicemail box.
If you are bringing your phone number from another carrier,
we suggest you set up your voicemail box after the number
you brought to Nextel is active on your Nextel phone and
your temporary phone number is deactivated. If you set up
your voicemail box prior to this, all messages and all settings
(including your greeting and password) will be lost when the
number you have brought to Nextel becomes active.
Setting Up Your Voicemail Box
Using your i570 phone, dial your ten-digit Nextel Personal
Telephone Number (PTN). For example: 7035557777. Follow
the system instructions to create a new four- to seven-digit
password, record your name, and record a greeting. When the
system says, “Thank you for using Nextel Voicemail,” your
mailbox is set up.
If you are calling from a phone other than your i570, dial your
ten-digit Nextel PTN. When you hear the greeting, press the
star key to access your voicemail box. The system will prompt
you to enter your password. Enter the last seven digits of your
Nextel PTN. For example: 5557777. This is your temporary
password.
You are in the main voicemail menu when you hear the
options listed below.

Specific Absorption Rate Data
SAR Data
ALL MODELS WITH FCC ID AZ489FT5844 MEET 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 radio frequency (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,
1
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
242
Section 4A: Important Safety Information
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 phone when tested for use at the ear is 1.05
W/kg and when tested on the body, as described in this user
guide, is 1.15 W/kg during packet data transmission.
(Body-worn measurements differ among phone models,
depending upon available accessories and FCC
requirements.)2
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. Please note that
improvements to this product model could cause differences
in the SAR value for later products; in all cases, products are
designed to be within the guidelines.
1. 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.
Important Safety Information
Additional information on Specific Absorption Rates (SAR)
can be found on the Cellular Telecommunications Industry
Association (CTIA) web-site at http://www.ctia.org or the

Hearing Aid Compatibility
HAC
A number of Motorola phones have been tested for hearing
aid compatibility. When some wireless phones are used with
certain hearing aids, users may detect a noise which can
interfere with the effectiveness of the hearing aid.
Some hearing aids are more “immune” than others to this
interference noise, and phones can also vary in the amount of
interference noise they may generate. ANSI standard C63.19
was developed to provide a standardized means of
measuring both mobile phone and hearing aids to determine
usability rating categories for both.
Ratings have been developed for mobile phones to assist
hearing aid users find phones that may be compatible with
their hearing aid. Not all phones have been rated for
compatibility with hearing aids. Phones that have been rated
have a label with the rating(s) located on the box, and at
www.motorola.com/accessibility.
These ratings are not guarantees of compatibility. Results will
vary depending on the user's hearing aid and individual type
and degree of hearing loss. If a hearing aid is particularly
vulnerable to interference, even a phone with a higher rating
may still cause unacceptable noise levels in the hearing aid
Trying out the phone with your hearing aid is the best way to
evaluate it for your personal needs.
“M” Rating: Phones rated M3 or M4 meet FCC requirements
for hearing aid compatibility and are likely to generate less
interference to hearing aids than unrated phones. (M4 is the
“better” or higher of the two ratings.) On those models with
an extendable antenna, this rating is determined only with
the antenna extended.
244
Section 4A: Important Safety Information
“T” Rating: Phones rated T3 or T4 meet FCC requirements and
are likely to be more usable with a hearing aid's telecoil (“T
Switch” or “Telephone Switch”) than unrated phones. (T4 is
the “better” or higher of the two ratings.) On those models
with a telecoil mode setting, this rating is determined only
with the phone so set. For setting instructions, see “Features
for the Hearing Impaired” in the section entitled “Advanced
Calling Features”. Note that not all hearing aids have telecoils
in them.
Thus, if you use an M3 phone with a M3 hearing aid you will
have a combined rating of six for “excellent use.” This
methodology applies equally for T ratings.
More information about hearing aid compatibility may be
found at: www.motorola.com/accessibility, www.fcc.gov,
www.fda.gov, and www.hearingloss.org/learn/
cellphonetech.asp
Section 4A: Important Safety Information
Important Safety Information
Hearing aids may also be measured for immunity to
interference from wireless phones and may have ratings
similar to wireless phones. Ask your hearing health care
professional for the rating of your hearing aid. Add the rating
of your hearing aid and your phone to determine the
estimated usability:
䢇 Any combined rating equal to or greater than six offers
excellent use.
䢇 Any combined rating equal to five is considered normal
use.
䢇 Any combined rating equal to four is considered usable.
