Quick Start Guide
Transferring your Address Book
If switching from a Digital (TDMA) phone to a Motorola T725
You will need to manually transfer numbers from one phone’s address book to another by following the instructions
in your phone’s User Guide.
If switching from a Next Generation (GSM/GPRS) phone to a Motorola T725
Next Generation phones such as the Motorola T725 often allow you to save contacts to your phone or to your SIM
card (which is a memory chip that you can remove and insert into future next generation phones that you use). If
this option is available to you, and you think you may decide to change phones (to another Next Generation phone)
at any time, be sure to save all your contacts to your SIM card so that you can simply take your address book with

you. To save your contacts to your SIM, select Menu (you can reach the Menu by pressing the
button --the
large circular one with arrows at the top-middle of your keypad, typically used for menu navigation) →Phonebook
→New Entry, then enter the name and number. Scroll down to the “Store To” prompt, choose “SIM.” Note: SIM
cards are only able to save 200 numbers, and only one number per name.
Setting Up VoiceMail
Please to refer to the Welcome Guide, which you received with your phone, for full instructions on how to set up
your VoiceMail service. For the Motorola T725, be sure to follow the “Next Generation” phone instructions and use
1111 as your temporary VoiceMail password. Note: You’ll want to set up your VoiceMail as soon as possible,
since this service is active immediately and callers may be leaving messages for you.

How to Use Connect2Home Callingsm
Connect2Homesm calling is a feature included with USA Nation bundled wireless rate plans which allows you to
make free voice calls from your GSM wireless phone to your home phone number. If you’ve selected a rate plan
which includes Connect2Home calling, this service should be available for use the next business day after
ordering. Once the service is active on your account, you will receive a text message to your wireless phone to
How to Place a Call Using Connect2Home service:
To place a Connect2Home call, dial “22” then press the “send” or “enter” key to place a call to your
designated home number. Calls you make by dialing 22 will automatically be sent to your home
number (your home number is the local, residential Cincinnati Bell Telephone phone number that you
provided to Cincinnati Bell for billing purposes when you activated your wireless phone.)
If you move, you can change the telephone number that you designated to be your home phone
number twice per calendar year by calling CBW Care at (888) 391-3925.
IMPORTANT! Calls to “22” will always be free calls, and the minutes used will not subtract from the
minutes you have available in your wireless rate plan. If you dial directly to your 7 or 10-digit home
phone number, these minutes will not be free and will count against your plan’s available minutes.
Likewise, minutes used when dialing from your home to your wireless will subtract from your plan’s
available minutes.
Cincinnati Bell reserves the right to disconnect the Connect2Home Feature at its discretion.
Interactions with other Telephone Services:
Line Number Blocking or Out of Area: When you dial 22, Cincinnati Bell must be able to read the Caller
ID from your incoming call in order to connect the call to your designated home number. In certain
Motorola T725 – 11/04
coverage areas and/or if you have “Line Number Blocking” service active on your wireless phone, calls
will not carry Caller ID information. In these instances, you will hear the following message:
“We're sorry, your Connect2Home free call may not be completed at this time due to insufficient
incoming Caller ID information. This may be just a temporary problem due to your current wireless
network connection. Please try your free call again at a later time.”
If you have “Line Number Blocking” set up on your wireless phone, you do not need to eliminate this
service. Instead, simply dial *82 513-241-3030 to use Connect2Home service. This will be the phone
number that you dial each time you place a call home instead of dialing “22”. It may be easiest for you
to use this number if you program the entire number sequence into your address book.
Call Forwarding: Call Forwarding should not be used to forward any calls to your home number, to 22,
or to 513-241-3030. Calls placed using the Call Forwarding feature will be billed the normal call
forwarding charges ($.07/min).
Billing Detail with Connect2Home:
Calls made to 22 or 513-241-3030 will appear on your monthly detailed bill. Connect2Home calls will
be identified as shown below.
