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.

stored for long periods while fully charged. If long
term storage is required, store at half capacity.

Making Calls
Your i205 phone makes 2 types of calls: digital
cellular phone calls and Boost Walkie-Talkie calls.
With Boost Walkie-Talkie calls, you use your phone
as a long-range, digital walkie-talkie.
To make a phone call:

call.

Every Boost Walkie-Talkie number has 3 parts — an
area ID, a network ID, and a member ID — with an
asterisk between each of these parts. For example:
999*999*9999.
When you place a Boost Walkie-Talkie call, you must
enter the whole Boost Walkie-Talkie number
including the asterisks.
Tip: When you store a Boost Walkie-Talkie

GPS 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. 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.
You can also use the GPS feature to view your
approximate location. Location information appears
on the phone’s display.
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
• Between tall buildings or under dense
tree-cover
• Near a powerful radio or television tower
• 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
59
GPS Enabled
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 62.
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.
60
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 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
Viewing Your Approximate Location
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 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 59), 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.
See “Enhancing GPS Performance” on page 62
for information on how to help your phone determine
your location.
Viewing Your Approximate
Location
1 From the main menu, select GPS > Position.
2 Scroll to view the entire screen.
This displays the following information about the last
time your location was calculated:
• 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 Rfrsh.
61
GPS Enabled
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”.
The Position screen displays the updated
information.
To cancel a location calculation before it is
completed:
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.
62
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.
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.
• Hold your phone to enhance reception. Signals
from GPS satellites are transmitted to your GPS
antenna, which is inside the back of your phone,
opposite the earpiece, above the label with your
Updating Satellite Almanac Data
service provider’s name on it. 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 area
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 who your
service provider is, 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.
• 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.
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.
63
GPS Enabled
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
care number.
Setting Privacy Options
Your phone’s GPS privacy options control whether
software applications may view the location of your
phone.You may set your phone to one of these GPS
privacy options:
• Restricted — No 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.
64
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 Scroll to the privacy setting you want.
4 Press A under Select.
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.

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.
To do this, connect your phone to your laptop (or
other device) with a data cable and set your phone to
transmit data (see “Getting Started” on page 66).
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 62
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.

Portable Radio Product Operation and EME Exposure
ALL MODELS WITH FCC ID AZ489FT5822 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 radiofrequency (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, or SAR. The SAR limit set by the FCC is 1.6 W/kg.1
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
Webwork. 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
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 1.19 W/kg and when tested on the body, as described
in this user guide, is 1.39 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.
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this
model phone with all reported SAR levels evaluated as in
compliance with the FCC RF exposure guidelines. SAR
information on this model phone is on file with the FCC and
can be found under the Display Grant section of
http://www.fcc.gov/oet/fccid after searching on FCC ID
AZ489FT5822.
Additional information on Specific Absorption Rates (SAR)
can be found on the Cellular Telecommunications Industry
Association (CTIA) web-site at http://www.wow-com.com.
In the United States and Canada, the SAR limit for mobile
phones used by the public is 1.6 watts/kg (W/kg) averaged

Safety and General Information
Electro Magnetic
Interference/Compatibility
Note: Nearly every electronic device is
susceptible to electromagnetic
interference (EMI) if inadequately
shielded, designed or otherwise
configured for electromagnetic
compatibility.
Medical Devices
Pacemakers
The Advanced Medical Technology Association
(AdvaMed) recommends that a minimum separation
of 6 inches (15 cm) be maintained between a
handheld wireless radio product and a pacemaker.
These recommendations are consistent with those of
the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
Facilities
Persons with pacemakers should:
To avoid electromagnetic interference and/or
compatibility conflicts, turn off your radio product in
any facility where posted notices instruct you to do
so. Hospitals or health care facilities may be using
equipment that is sensitive to external RF energy.
• ALWAYS keep the radio product more than 6
inches (15 cm) from their pacemaker when the
radio product is turned ON.
• Not carry the radio product in a breast pocket.
• Use the ear opposite the pacemaker to minimize
the potential for interference.
• Turn the radio product OFF immediately if you
have any reason to suspect that interference is
taking place.
Aircraft
When instructed to do so, turn off your radio product
when on board an aircraft. Any use of a radio product
must be in accordance with applicable regulations
per airline crew instructions.
Hearing Aids
Some digital wireless radio products may interfere
with some hearing aids. In the event of such
interference, you may want to consult your hearing
aid manufacturer to discuss alternatives.
102
Operational Warnings
Other Medical Devices
If you use any other personal medical device, consult
the manufacturer of your device to determine if it is
adequately shielded from RF energy. Your physician
may be able to assist you in obtaining this
information.
Use While Driving
Check the laws and regulations on the use of radio
products in the area where you drive. Always obey
them.
When using the radio product while driving, please:
• Give full attention to driving and to the road.
• Use hands-free operation, if available.
• Pull off the road and park before making or
answering a call if driving conditions so require.
Operational Warnings
For Vehicles with an Air Bag
!
Do not place a portable radio product in the area over
the air bag or in the air bag deployment area. Air
bags inflate with great force. If a portable radio is
placed in the air bag deployment area and the air bag
inflates, the radio product may be propelled with
great force and cause serious injury to occupants of
the vehicle.
Potentially Explosive Atmospheres
Turn off your radio product prior to entering any area
with a potentially explosive atmosphere, unless it is a
radio product type especially qualified for use in such
areas as “Intrinsically Safe” (for example, Factory
Mutual, CSA, or UL approved). Do not remove,
install, or charge batteries in such areas. Sparks in a
potentially explosive atmosphere can cause an
explosion or fire resulting in bodily injury or even
death.
Note: The areas with potentially explosive
atmospheres referred to above include
fueling areas such as below decks on
boats, fuel or chemical transfer or
storage facilities, areas where the air
contains chemicals or particles, such as
grain, dust or metal powders, and any
103
Safety and General Information
other area where you would normally be
advised to turn off your vehicle engine.
Areas with potentially explosive
atmospheres are often but not always
posted.
Blasting Caps and Areas
To avoid possible interference with blasting
operations, turn off your radio product when you are
near electrical blasting caps, in a blasting area, or in
areas posted: “Turn off two-way radio”. Obey all signs
and instructions.
Operational Cautions
Antennas
!
Do not use any portable radio product that has a
damaged antenna. If a damaged antenna comes
into contact with your skin, a minor burn can result.
Batteries
All batteries can cause property damage and/or
bodily injury, such as burns if a conductive material
such as jewelry, keys, or beaded chains touches
exposed terminals. The conductive material may
complete an electrical circuit (short circuit) and
become quite hot. Exercise care in handling any
charged battery, particularly when placing it inside a
pocket, purse, or other container with metal objects.
Cleaning and Drying Considerations
Using a leather carry case may help protect the
surfaces and help prevent liquids (e.g., rain) from
entering into the interior of the radio product. This
product is not water proof, and exposing the unit to
liquids may result in permanent damage to the unit.
If your radio product interior gets wet, then do not try
to accelerate drying with the use of an oven or a dryer
as this will damage the radio product and void the
warranty. Instead, do the following:
1 Immediately power off the radio product.
2 Remove Battery and SIM card (if so equipped)
from radio product.
3 Shake excess liquid from radio product.
4 Place the radio product and battery in an area that
is at room temperature and has good air flow.
5 Let the radio product, battery, and SIM card dry for
72 hours before reconnecting the battery and/or
powering on the radio product.
If the radio product does not work after following the
steps listed above, contact your dealer for servicing
information.
104
Accessory Safety Information
Clean the external surfaces of the radio product with
a damp cloth, using a mild solution of dishwashing
detergent and water. Some household cleaners may
contain chemicals that could seriously damage the
radio product. Avoid the use of any petroleum-based
solvent cleaners. Also, avoid applying liquids directly
on the radio product.
Accessory Safety Information
Important: Save these accessory safety instructions.
• Before using any battery or battery charger, read
all the instructions for and cautionary markings on
(1) the battery, (2) the battery charger, which may
include a separate wall-mounted power supply or
transformer, and (3) the radio product using the
battery.
• Do not expose any battery charger to water, rain,
or snow as they are designed for indoor or
in-vehicle use only.
!
Warning: To reduce the risk of injury,
charge only the rechargeable batteries
described in “Battery” on page 6. Other
types of batteries may burst, causing
personal injury and damage.
• To reduce the risk of damage to the cord or plug,
pull by the plug rather than the cord when you
disconnect the battery charger from the power
source outlet.
• Do not operate any battery charger with a
damaged cord or plug — replace them
immediately.
• Battery chargers may become warm during
operation, but not hot. If it becomes hot to the
touch, unplug it from the power outlet immediately
and discontinue its use.
• Use of a non-recommended attachment to a
battery charger may result in a risk of fire, electric
shock, or injury to persons.
• Make sure the battery charger power cord is
located so that it will not be stepped on, tripped
over, or subjected to damage or stress.
• An extension cord should not be used with any
battery charger unless absolutely necessary. Use
of an improper extension cord could result in a risk
of fire and electric shock. If an extension cord must
be used, make sure that:
• The pins on the plug of the extension cord are
the same number, size, and shape as those on
the plug of the charger.
• The extension cord is properly wired and in
good electrical condition.
105
Safety and General Information
• The cord size is 18AWG for lengths up to 100
feet and 16AWG for lengths up to 150 feet.
• Do not operate any battery charger if it has
received a sharp blow, has been dropped, or
has been damaged in any way; take it to a
qualified service technician.
• Do not disassemble a battery charger; take it to
a qualified service technician when service or
repair is required. Incorrect reassembly may
result in a risk of electric shock or fire.
• Maximum ambient temperature around the
power supply or transformer of any battery
charger should not exceed 40°C (104°F).
• The output power from the power supply or
transformer must not exceed the rating given on
the Desktop Dual-Pocket Charger.
• The disconnection from the line voltage is made
by unplugging the power supply from the AC
receptacle.
• To reduce risk of electric shock, unplug any
battery charger from the outlet before attempting
any maintenance or cleaning.
For optimum charging performance, turn off the radio
product while charging it in any battery charger.
