Charging the Battery
Charge your battery as soon as possible so you can begin using your device.
Keeping track of your battery’s charge is important. If your battery level becomes too low,

Now that you’ve explored your device’s fundamentals, it’s time to learn about the calling features that
enhance your Sprint service. This section outlines your basic Sprint service features.
Visual Voicemail
Visual Voicemail gives you a quick and easy way to access your voicemail. Now you can find
exactly the message you want without having to listen to every voicemail message first.
Visual Voicemail allows you to quickly and easily decide which voicemail messages you
choose to listen to. You can also send your own visual voicemail messages to select
recipients.
This new feature periodically goes out to your voicemail and gathers the caller information
from all of the current voicemails. It then populates a list with the caller name and number,
along with the length of time and priority level of the voicemail message.

you are opening a Web page); when the triangles are gray, you are connected to the
network but data is not currently being transferred (for example, when you are viewing
a Web page that is completely open). While data is being transmitted, you can make a
call but can't receive one.
Your device is on and is connected to the Sprint 1xRTT data network. When the arrows are
animated, data is being transferred (for example, when you are opening a Web page) and
you cannot receive calls. When the arrows are gray, you are connected to the network but
data is not currently being transferred (for example, when you are viewing a Web page that
is completely open), and you can receive calls.
If no indicator is displayed, your device does not have a current data connection. To launch a
connection, see “Launching a Web Connection” on page 88.

Any changes or modifications to your device not expressly approved in this document could void your
warranty for this equipment and void your authority to operate this equipment.
Note
For the best care of your device, only Sprint-authorized personnel should service your device and
accessories. Failure to do so may be dangerous and void your warranty.
Maintaining Safe Use of and Access to Your Device
Do Not Rely on Your Device for Emergency Calls
Mobile devices operate using radio signals, which cannot guarantee connection in all conditions.
Therefore you should never rely solely upon any mobile device for essential communication (e.g., medical
emergencies). Emergency calls may not be possible on all cellular networks or when certain network
services or mobile device features are in use. Check with your local service provider for details.
Using Your Device While Driving
Talking on your device while driving (or operating the device 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 Sprint at 1-800-974-2221. You
can also dial # 2 2 2 on your device.
Following Safety Guidelines
To operate your device safely and efficiently, always follow any special regulations in a given area. Turn
your device off in areas where use is forbidden or when it may cause interference or danger.
Using Your Device Near Other Electronic Devices
Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from radio frequency (RF) signals. However, RF signals
from wireless devices may affect inadequately shielded electronic equipment.
RF signals may affect improperly installed or inadequately shielded electronic operating systems 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.

Safety and Warranty Information: Important Safety Information
Nerva.book Page 107 Monday, June 2, 2008 2:27 PM
Note
Always turn off the device in healthcare facilities, and request permission before using the device near
medical equipment.
Turning Off Your Device Before Flying
Turn off your device 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 device while the plane is on the ground. To prevent any risk of interference, FCC
regulations prohibit using your device while the plane is in the air.
Turning Off Your Device in Dangerous Areas
To avoid interfering with blasting operations, turn your device off when in a blasting area or in other areas
with signs indicating two-way radios should be turned off. Construction crews often use remote-control RF
devices to set off explosives.
Turn your device off when you’re in any area that has a potentially explosive atmosphere. Although it’s rare,
your device 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:
䡲 Fueling areas such as gas stations.
䡲 Below deck on boats.
䡲 Fuel or chemical transfer or storage facilities.
䡲 Areas where the air contains chemicals or particles such as grain, dust, or metal powders.
䡲 Any other area where you would normally be advised to turn off your vehicle’s engine.
Note
Never transport or store flammable gas, flammable liquids, or explosives in the compartment of your
vehicle that contains your device or accessories.
Restricting Children’s Access to Your Device
Safety
Your device is not a toy. Do not allow children to play with it as they could hurt themselves and others,
damage the device or make calls that increase your Sprint invoice.
Using Your Device With a Hearing Aid Device
A number of Sprint devices have been tested for hearing aid device compatibility. When some wireless
devices are used with certain hearing devices (including hearing aids and cochlear implants), users may
detect a noise which can interfere with the effectiveness of the hearing device.
Safety and Warranty Information: Important Safety Information
107
Nerva.book Page 108 Monday, June 2, 2008 2:27 PM
Some hearing devices are more immune than others to this interference noise, and devices 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 wireless device and hearing devices to determine usability rating
categories for both.
Ratings have been developed for mobile devices to assist hearing device users find devices that may be
compatible with their hearing device. Not all devices have been rated for compatibility with hearing
devices. Devices that have been rated have a label located on the box. Your Instinct (SPH-M800) has an
M3 and T3 rating.
These ratings are not guarantees. Results will vary depending on the user’s hearing device and individual
type and degree of hearing loss. If a hearing device is particularly vulnerable to interference noise, even a
device with a higher rating may still cause unacceptable noise levels in the hearing device. Trying out the
device with your hearing device is the best way to evaluate it for your personal needs.
M-Ratings: Devices rated M3 or M4 meet FCC requirements for hearing aid compatibility and are likely to
generate less interference to hearing devices than unrated devices. (M4 is the better/higher of the two
ratings.)
T-Ratings: Devices rated T3 or T4 meet FCC requirements and are likely to be more usable with a
hearing device’s telecoil (“T Switch”or “Telephone Switch”) than unrated devices. (T4 is the better/higher
of the two ratings. Note that not all hearing devices have telecoils in them.)
Hearing aid devices may also be measured for immunity to interference noise from wireless devices and
should have ratings similar to devices. Ask your hearing healthcare professional for the rating of your
hearing aid. Add the rating of your hearing aid and your device to determine probable 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.
Thus, if you pair an M3 hearing aid with an M3 device, you will have a combined rating of six for “excellent
use.” This is synonymous for T ratings.
Sprint further suggests you experiment with multiple devices (even those not labeled M3/T3 or M4/T4)
while in the store to find the one that works best with your hearing aid device. Should you experience
interference or find the quality of service unsatisfactory after purchasing your device, promptly return it to
the store within 30 days of purchase. With the Sprint 30-day Risk-Free Guarantee, you may return the
device within 30 days of purchase for a full refund. More information about hearing aid compatibility may
be found at: www.fcc.gov, www.fda.gov, and www.accesswireless.org.

Move the device around to find the point with least interference.
Caring for the Battery
The guidelines listed below help you get the most out of your battery’s performance.
䢇 Recently there have been some public reports of wireless device batteries overheating, catching fire, or
exploding. It appears that many, if not all, of these reports involve counterfeit or inexpensive, aftermarketbrand batteries with unknown or questionable manufacturing standards. Sprint is not aware of similar
problems with Sprint devices resulting from the proper use of batteries and accessories approved by
Sprint or the manufacturer of your device. Use only Sprint-approved or manufacturer-approved batteries
and accessories found at Sprint Stores or through your device’s manufacturer, or call 1-866-343-1114 to
order. They’re also available at www.sprint.com — click Accessories. Buying the right batteries and
accessories is the best way to ensure they’re genuine and safe.
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.

Don’t store the battery in high temperature areas for long periods of time. It’s best to follow these storage
rules:
Less than one month:
-4° F to 140° F (-20° C to 60° C)
More than one month:
-4° F to 113° F (-20° C to 45° C)
Disposal of Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) Batteries
Do not handle a damaged or leaking Li-Ion battery as you can be burned.
For safe disposal options of your Li-Ion batteries, contact your nearest Sprint authorized service center.
Special Note: Be sure to dispose of your battery properly. In some areas, the disposal of batteries in
household or business trash may be prohibited.
Radio Frequency (RF) Energy
Understanding How Your Device Operates
Your device is basically a radio transmitter and receiver. When it’s turned on, it receives and transmits radio
frequency (RF) signals. When you use your device, the system handling your call controls the power level.
This power can range from 0.006 watt to 0.2 watt in digital mode.
Knowing Radio Frequency Safety
The design of your device 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 existing ANSI/IEEE
standard and the guidelines published by the National Council of Radiation Protection and Measurements
(NCRP).

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. If you do not use a
body-worn accessory, ensure the antenna is at least 7/16 inch (1.5 centimeters) from your body when
transmitting. Use of non-Sprint-approved accessories may violate FCC RF exposure guidelines.
For more information about RF exposure, visit the FCC Web site at www.fcc.gov.
Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) for Wireless Devices
The SAR value corresponds to the relative amount of RF energy absorbed into the head of a user of a
wireless handset.
The SAR value of a device is the result of an extensive testing, measuring and calculation process. It does
not represent how much RF the device emits. All device models are tested at their highest value in strict
laboratory settings. But when in operation, the SAR of a device 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, device design and other factors. What is important to remember is that each device meets strict
federal guidelines. Variations in SARs do not represent a variation in safety.
All devices must meet the federal standard, which incorporates a substantial margin of safety. As stated
above, variations in SAR values between different model devices 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 Instinct (SPH-M800) are:
Cellular CDMA mode (Part 22):
Head: 1.16 W/kg; Body-worn: 1.22 W/kg
PCS mode (Part 24):
Head: 1.46 W/kg; Body-worn: 1.01 W/kg
