Getting Started With Sprint PCS Service
Determining if Your Phone is Already Activated
If you purchased your phone at a Sprint Store, it is probably
activated, unlocked, and ready to use. If you received your
phone in the mail, it probably has been activated; all you
need to do is unlock it.
If your phone is not activated, please refer to the
Welcome to Sprint brochure included with your phone.
Unlocking Your Phone
To unlock your phone, follow these easy steps:
1. Press and hold
for a few seconds to turn the
phone on.
2. Press Unlock (
Note:
).
To select a softkey, press the softkey button directly below
the softkey text that appears at the bottom left and bottom
right of your phone’s display screen. Softkey actions change
according to the screen you’re viewing and will not appear if
there is no corresponding action available.
3. Enter your four-digit lock code. (For security purposes,
the code is not visible as you type.)
Tip:
4
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).

that it supports digital wireless transmission. Your phone and
TTY device will connect via a special cable that plugs into your
phone's headset jack. If this cable was not provided with your
TTY device, contact your TTY device manufacturer to
purchase the connector cable.
When establishing your Sprint PCS Service, please call Sprint
Customer Service via the state Telecommunications Relay
Service (TRS) by first dialing

NOTICE:
911 Emergency Calling
Sprint recommends that TTY users make emergency
calls by other means, including Telecommunications
Relay Services (TRS), analog cellular, and land line
communications. Wireless TTY calls to 911 may be
corrupted when received by public safety answering
points (PSAPs) rendering some communications
unintelligible. The problem encountered appears
related to TTY equipment or software used by PSAPs.
This matter has been brought to the attention of the
FCC, and the wireless industry and PSAP community
are currently working to resolve this.

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
77
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:
78
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.
Roaming
When you return to the Nationwide Sprint PCS Network,
voicemail notification will resume as normal.
Section 2D: Controlling Your Roaming Experience
79
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

phone to control your roaming experience.
To set your phone’s roam mode:

).
3. Select Roaming (
).
4. Select Set Mode (
).
5. To select an option, highlight it and press

.
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 (
) to access the main menu.

New Features
Your MM-A880’s voice recognition feature lets you perform
many of your phone's functions using just your voice. If you
have used VoiceSignal voice recognition on previous
Sprint PCS Phones, please review the following list of
enhancements.
䢇 Natural one-step commands - Instead of a series of
commands, you can now issue single voice commands to
accomplish a variety of complex tasks.
䢇
䢇
140
For example:
䡲 “Call John Mobile”: Dials the mobile number stored
for the contact entry “John.”
䡲 “Call Maria Work”: Dials the work number stored for
the contact entry Maria.
䡲 “Call 555-555-5555”: Dials the specified number.
One-step voice access to text messaging - The “Send Text”
command lets you use a single voice command to launch
the phone's text messaging client and specify a recipient.
For example:
䡲 “Send Text to John”: Opens the text message client
and addresses the message to the mobile number
of the contact entry “John”.
One-step access to applications and menus - You can access
applications and common menus by saying “Go To”
followed by the application or menu name.
For example:
䡲 “Go To Calendar”: Launches the “Calendar”
application.
䡲 “Go To Downloads”: Displays the “Downloads”
menu.
Section 2I: Using Your Phone’s Voice Services
䢇
Voice commands for checking phone status - With a single
command, you can have the phone play back and display
its phone number, the current signal strength, network
coverage, battery level, or all of the above.
Voice Services
For example:
䡲 “Check Battery”: Instructs the phone to report its
current battery strength.
䡲 “Check Status”: Instructs the phone to report all
status information.
Section 2I: Using Your Phone’s Voice Services

Using Voice-Activated Dialing
Voice recognition allows you to say commands to perform
common functions supported by your phone. There is no
voice training required to use the voice recognition feature.
You simply say the pre-designated command displayed on
your screen in a normal tone of voice to perform the desired
function.
To activate voice recognition:
1. Press and hold
. (The phone prompts you to say a
voice command.)
Tip:
Voice Activated dialing can also be configured to prompt you
when the flip is opened. For more information, See “Voice
Launch” on page 143.
2. Wait for the beep and then say one of the following
commands:
䡲 Call <Name or #>
䡲 Send Text <Name>
䡲 Lookup <Name>
䡲 Go To <App>
䡲 Check <Item>
When it recognizes one of these commands, the phone
launches the associated application. If the phone does not
hear a command within approximately eight seconds, it deactivates voice recognition without taking any action.

Section 2I: Using Your Phone’s Voice Services
.
143
Using Call <Name or #>
You can voice dial from your phone with a single command by
saying “Call” followed by a name or nickname and
(optionally) a label stored in your contact list, or “Call”
followed by a valid phone number. You can also say “Call” by
itself and be prompted for the name or number.
Calling Contacts Entries
To place a call using Call <Name or #>:
1. Press and hold
.
2. Say “Call” followed by the name and the label for that
number. For example, say “Call John Mobile.” The phone
dials the number stored for the contact “John” with the
label “Mobile.”
If the location recognized for the name does not have a
number stored in contacts, VoiceSignal will play the message
“No number available, John Smith, Mobile,” and then launch
the Contacts application for that name.
If a name has only a single number, or if you know the name
but are not sure which number to call, say “Call” followed by
the name only. For example, say “Call John.” If the name is
recognized and there is only one number for the name,
VoiceSignal immediately places the call. If there are multiple
numbers stored for the contact, the phone prompts you with
“Which Number?” and displays a list of options. You can
select an option by saying it or by using your keypad.
Calling Nicknames
Your Contact List incorporates a field called “Nickname.”
When you add a nickname to a contact, you can say the
contact's name or nickname when using the voice features.
144
Section 2I: Using Your Phone’s Voice Services
For example, if you have a contact, “John Smith” stored in
your contact list, and you add, “Dad” to the nickname field,
you can call that contact by saying, “Call John Smith” or by
saying “Call Dad.”
Voice Services
Tip:
If your contact list contains a name that you have difficulty
using with the voice features (such as some unusual or
foreign names), you can add a nickname for that contact that
spells out the proper pronunciation of that name.
Calling Phone Numbers (Digit Dialing)
To voice dial a number that is not stored in your contact list:
䊳
Say “Call” followed immediately by a valid string of
digits to be dialed, for example, say “Call 555 555 5555."
Speak naturally and clearly and remember to speak one digit
at a time- 1-800 should be pronounced “One Eight Zero Zero.”
Adapting Digit Dial
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.
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.
Section 2I: Using Your Phone’s Voice Services

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.
To adapt Digit Dial to your voice:
1. Press Menu (
) to access the main menu.
2. Select Settings (
).
3. Select Voice Service (
).
4. Select Digit Dialing (
).
5. Select Adapt Digits (
) and press
to begin. (The
phone displays the first digit sequence.)
6. 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.”)
7. If the recording sounds OK (no mistakes and no
background noises), say Yes.
8. If you need to re-record the digits to fix any problems,
say No. (The phone then prompts you to say the digits
again.)
146
Section 2I: Using Your Phone’s Voice Services
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
11. Repeat steps 6-9 for another six sets of digits. (After the
sixth set of digits, you will be half-way through the
session and the phone will ask “More Adaptation?”)
12. Select OK to continue for six more sets of digits, or press
for partial adaptation. When you are finished with
a full session, you will reach a screen that reads,
“Adaptation Complete.”
Note:
It is recommended that you perform the complete
adaptation of Digit Dial at least once to achieve the
maximum benefit of this feature. If a partial adaptation is
performed, you can always return later and resume the
process from the half-way point.

Multimedia FAQs
1. How does my phone's Multimedia Service differ from
Sprint PCS Video Mail?
Multimedia Service lets you access high-quality video and
audio clips provided by external sources. Video Mail lets you
capture, upload and share videos that you personally create
with your phone's built-in camcorder.
2. Will I know if I'm receiving an incoming call while I'm
viewing or listening to an audio clip?
3. How long are the clips? Will I know the estimated time it
will take to play the clip prior to accessing it?
Once you have selected a channel, you will see a listing of the
available clips, with the clip's length appearing after the clip's
title. In general, a clip's duration will depend on the story or
content being provided, and can be fairly short or as long as a
few minutes.
4. Can I access a multimedia clip wherever I am, as long as I
have my phone?
As long as you are on the Nationwide Sprint PCS Network,
you will have access to the audio and video clips.
Note:
Multimedia Service does not work while roaming off of the
Nationwide Sprint PCS Network or where service is
unavailable.
Section 2K: Using Your Phone’s Built-in Media Player

Media Player
No. All incoming calls will roll into voicemail while you are
playing a clip. If the caller leaves a voicemail, the voicemail
icon will appear on the screen.
5. Are the videos that I'm viewing “live” videos?
It depends on the content provider. Some of the channels
available through Sprint TV stream live content. Others
provide media on demand with video and audio clips that are
refreshed throughout the day, but that are not “live.”
6. After purchasing access to an Available Channel for a
monthly fee, do I receive any confirmation? That is, how
do I know it has been purchased?
The next time you access your media player's Channel
Listings, the purchased channel title and corresponding
number will appear in the My Channels section.
7. Why are some channels already pre-loaded into the My
Channels section?
Some channels, such as Previews, are offered free of charge
as a customer courtesy. These channels automatically appear
in the My Channels section of your Channel Listings.
8. If I don't subscribe to Sprint PCS Vision Plan, am I still
able to view the multimedia clips?
Yes; for service access charges, please see option “C” in
question 2 above.
9. How can I easily access a channel without having to
scroll through all the channels in my Channel Listings?
Each channel will have a number to the left of it. You can
simply press this number to quickly access the clips located
within that channel.
Tip:
When entering the specific channel number, channels 01 - 09
do not require you to enter a “0.” For example, to access
channel “07,” just press the “7” key.
10. What does it mean when the video pauses and I see the
word “loading” at the bottom of the screen?
192
Section 2K: Using Your Phone’s Built-in Media Player
This happens when the media player is in the process of
loading the data necessary to play the clip. It typically occurs
when there is heavy traffic on the network.
11. How can I cancel service if I decide I don't want it?
To cancel your Multimedia Service, visit www.sprint.com and
sign on to My PCS with your account number and password.
From this page you have the ability to cancel the service and/
or any Available Channels to which you subscribe.
12. If I place my stereo headphones on and insert them into
the phone's headset jack, can I flip the phone closed
while I am playing an audio (or video) clip without
interrupting the clip?
13. Can I surf to a different channel while I am playing a
clip?
Yes; while you are playing a clip, you can use the up and
down navigation buttons to surf to a different channel. A
small pop-up screen will appear that tells you which channel
you are watching as well as other channels you have access
to. Use the navigation buttons to scroll through the different
channels. Once you find a channel that you want to watch,
scroll to it and press
(or simply wait approximately three
seconds) and the channel will begin loading.

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
247
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. Any time 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 radio frequency (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
248
Section 4A: Safety
existing ANSI/IEEE standard and the guidelines published by the
National Council of Radiation Protection and Measurements (NCRP).
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.
Section 4A: Safety
249
Safety
Maintaining Your Phone’s Peak Performance
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.
250
Section 4A: Safety
Note:
Always turn off the phone in health care facilities and request
permission before using the phone near medical equipment.
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.
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.
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
251
Safety
Turning Off Your Phone Before Flying
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:
䡲 Less than one month:
-4° F to 140° F (-20° C to 60° C)
䡲 More than one month:
-4° F to 113º 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.
252
Section 4A: Safety
Be sure to dispose of your battery properly. In some areas,
the disposal of batteries in household or business trash
may be prohibited.
Note:
For safety, do not handle a damaged or leaking Li-Ion
battery.
Section 4A: Safety

Using Your Phone with a Hearing Aid
Device
Your Sprint PCS Phone has been tested for hearing aid device
compatibility. When some wireless 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
thatmay be compatible with their hearing devices. Not all phones
have been rated. Phones that are rated will have the rating on the
box. Your MM-A880 by Samsung has an M3 rating.
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 successfully
use a phone that has been tested and rated as Hearing Aid
compatible. Trying the phone with your hearing device is the best
way to evaluate it for your personal needs. Should you experience
interference when using your MM-A880 by Samsung with your
hearing device, Sprint suggests you promptly return the phone to the
store. With the “Sprint 14-day Risk Free Guarantee” you may return
the phone within 14 days of purchase for a full refund. Sprint further
suggests you experimentwith multiple phones (even those not
labeled with an M3 or M4) while in the retail store to find the one
thatworks best with your hearing device.
Note:
Phones rated M3 or M4 meet FCC requirements and may
generate less interference to hearing devices than phones
that are not labeled. M4 is the better/higher of the two
ratings.
Hearing devices may also be measured for immunity to this type of
interference. Your hearing aid device manufacturer or hearing health
professional may help you find results for your hearing device. The
254
Section 4A: Safety
more immune your hearing aid is, the less likely you are to experience
interference noise from wireless phones.
Safety
Getting the Best Hearing Device Experience With
Your MM-A880 by Samsung

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.
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.
256
Section 4A: 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 Multimedia
Phone MM-A880 by Samsung® are:
AMPS mode (Part 22):
Head: 1.48 W/kg; Body-worn: 0.479 W/kg
Sprint PCS mode (Part 24):
Head:1.38 W/kg; Body-worn:0.546 W/kg
FCC Radiofrequency Emission
This phone meets the FCC Radiofrequency Emission Guidelines.
FCC ID number: A3LSPHA880. More information on the phone's
SAR can be found from the following FCC Website:
http://www.fcc.gov/oet/fccid.
Section 4A: Safety
257
Safety
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.
