Web and Data
With your Sprint service, you are ready to start enjoying the advantages of data services and
Web access from your phone. This section will help you learn the basics of using your data
services, including managing your user name, launching a data connection, and navigating the
Web with your phone.
Getting Started with Web and Data Service
Your User Name
When you buy your phone and sign up for service, you’re automatically assigned a user name,
which is typically based on your name and a number, followed by “@sprintpcs.com.” (For
example, the third John Smith to sign up for Sprint data services might have
jsmith003@sprintpcs.com as his user name.)
When you use data services, your user name is submitted to identify you to the Nationwide
Sprint Network. Your user name will be automatically programmed into your phone. You don’t
have to enter it.
Finding Your User Name
If you aren’t sure what your user name is, you can easily find it on your phone.
► Press
ID.
> Settings /Tools> Settings > Phone Information > Phone Number/User
Updating Your User Name
If you choose to change your user name and select a new one online, you must then update the
user name on your phone.
► Press
> Settings /Tools> Settings > Others > Data > Update Data Profile. (To
cancel, press
before completing the update.)

Data Connection Status and Indicators
Your phone displays the current status of your data connection through indicators at the top of
the screen.
The following symbols are used:
Icon
Description
Your phone is on and is connected to the Sprint 2G data network. When the
arrows are white, your phone is transferring data (for example, when you are
opening a Web page) and you can receive calls.
When the arrows are gray, your phone is connected to the network but is not
currently transferring data (for example, when you are viewing a Web page that
is completely open), and you can receive calls. If you do not see an indicator,
your phone does not have a current data connection.
Note: If Net Guard is enabled and displayed, press OK to continue and launch the Web.
Tip:
To change the default launch page to the last page you viewed, press TOOLBAR >
OPTIONS > Advanced > Startup page and select The last page I viewed.
Navigating the Web
Navigating through menus and websites during a data session is easy once you’ve learned a
few basics. Here are some tips for getting around:
Softkeys
During a data session, the bottom line of your phone’s display contains one or more softkeys.
These keys are shortcut controls for navigating around the Web, and they correspond to the
softkeys directly below the phone’s display screen.
To use softkeys:
► Press a softkey. (If you see an additional pop-up menu when you press the softkey,
select the menu items using your keypad [if they’re numbered], or by highlighting the
option and pressing
Tip:
.
Depending on which websites you visit, the labels on the softkeys may change to
indicate their function.
Scrolling
As with other parts of your phone’s menu, you’ll have to scroll up and down to see everything on
some websites.
To scroll line by line through websites:
► Press the navigation key up and down.
Web and Data
81
To scroll page by page through websites:
► Press the volume buttons on the side of the phone.
Selecting
Once you’ve learned how to use softkeys and scroll, you can start navigating the Web.
To select onscreen items:
► Use the navigation key to highlight an item, and then press the left softkey (or press
).
Tip:
You’ll find that the left softkey is used primarily for selecting items. This softkey is often
labeled “OK.”
If the items on a page are numbered, you can use your keypad (number keys) to select
an item. Links, which are displayed as underlined text, allow you to jump to Web pages,
select special functions, or even place phone calls.
To select links:
► Highlight the link and press the appropriate softkey.
Going Back
To go back one page:
► Press BACK the key on your phone.
Going Home
To return to the home page from any other page:
