The GPS feature on your BlackBerry® device can help emergency personnel
determine your location in instances where you are in a wireless coverage
area, your device is able to communicate with a GPS-enabled satellite, and
your emergency response center is equipped to process such information.

Using Your BlackBerry® 8830 With a Hearing Aid Device
Your BlackBerry® device has been tested for hearing aid device compatibility.
When some wireless devices 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 wireless devices also vary in the amount of interference they generate.
The wireless telephone industry has developed ratings for some of their wireless
devices, to assist hearing device users in finding wireless devices that may be
compatible with their hearing devices. Not all wireless devices have been rated.
Wireless devices that have been rated have a label located on the box. Your
BlackBerry® 8830 World Edition smartphone has an M4/T4 rating.
These ratings are not guarantees. Results will vary depending on the level of
immunity of your hearing device and degree of your hearing loss. If your hearing
device happens to be vulnerable to interference, you may not be able to use a
rated wireless device successfully. Trying out the wireless device with your
hearing device is the best way to evaluate it for your personal needs.
M-Ratings: Wireless devices rated M3 or M4 meet FCC requirements and are likely
to generate less interference to hearing devices than wireless devices that are not
labeled. M4 is the better/higher of the two ratings.
T-Ratings: Wireless 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 wireless devices. T4 is the better/higher of the two ratings. (Note
that not all hearing devices have telecoils in them.)
The more immune your hearing aid device is, the less likely you are to experience
interference noise from your wireless device. Hearing aid devices should have
ratings similar to wireless devices. Ask your hearing healthcare professional for
34
Using Your BlackBerry® 8830
the rating of your hearing aid. Add the rating of your hearing aid and your
wireless device to determine probable usability:
䢇 Any combined rating equal to or greater than six offers best 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 wireless device, you will have a
combined rating of six for “best use.” This is synonymous for T ratings.
Using Your Device
Sprint Nextel further suggests you experiment with multiple wireless 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 wireless device,
promptly return it to the store within 30 days of purchase. With the Sprint 30-day
Risk-Free Guarantee, you may return the wireless device within 30 days of
purchase for a full refund.

selected a GSM network while traveling, then you will need to set the phone to
CDMA to access CDMA data services. (See “Activating Global Roaming Mode” on
page 39.) Visit www.sprint.com/international for a list of services available for each
country.
You will also want to periodically get the latest PRL (Preferred Roaming List) release by
either calling customer service or visiting a local retail store. The PRL provides your

Help or contact Sprint for more information about changing or updating your
BlackBerry® device.
Why can I not add a supported email address?
Verify that the email account that is associated with the email address that you
want to add supports POP3 or IMAP4. Contact your email provider for more
information about the address types that you can add. See the BlackBerry®
Internet Service Online Help for more information about adding supported email
addresses.
When I add a supported email address, how does it work with the BlackBerry® Internet
Service?
When you add a supported email account (up to 10) to the BlackBerry® Internet
Service, a link is established between the BlackBerry® Internet Service and the
email account that is associated with the email address you have added. This link
allows you to send and receive email messages from your BlackBerry® device
using the email account that you have added. Email messages continue to be
delivered to the original email account as they were before you added the email
account to the BlackBerry® Internet Service. You also see email messages from the
account that you have added in the message list on your BlackBerry® device. Email
messages that you read, file, or delete on your BlackBerry® device should be
reflected as read, filed, or deleted wirelessly in your email account. Changes that
you make to email messages from another access interface are not reflected on
your BlackBerry® device. If you have a Microsoft Exchange or IBM Lotus Domino
work email account, or an IMAP personal email account, email messages that you
send from the BlackBerry® device are copied to the Sent Items folder in your
supported email account. Likewise, email messages that you delete from the
BlackBerry® device are copied to the Deleted Items folder.

Subscriber Agreement:
General Terms and Conditions of Service
Please note these terms may not be the most current version. A current version of the
terms is available at our Web site or upon request.
Terms and Conditions
Basic Definitions
In this document: (1) “we,” “us,” “our” mean Sprint Solutions, Inc. and its affiliates doing
business as Sprint or Sprint PCS; (2) “you,” “your,” “customer,” and “user” mean an account
holder or user with us; (3) “Device” means any phone, device, accessory or other product we
sell to you or that is active on your account with us; and (4) “Service” means our offers, rate
plans, options, wireless services or Devices on your account with us.
The Subscriber Agreement
The Subscriber Agreement (“Agreement”) is a contract under which we provide and you
accept our Services. In addition to these Terms and Conditions of Service (“Ts&Cs”), there are
several parts to the Agreement, including, but not limited to, the detailed plan or other
information on Services we provide or refer you to during the sales transaction, and any
confirmation materials we may provide you. It is important that you carefully read all of the
terms of the Agreement.
Services Covered By These Ts&Cs & Additional Terms
These Ts&Cs apply to our standard wireless Services and any other Service we offer you that
references these Ts&Cs. Different terms will apply to most business accounts. Additional
terms will apply when you use certain Services, typically those you can access online (for
example, picture/video Services, online forums, etc.). Additional terms will also apply if you
66
Subscriber Agreement: General Terms and Conditions of Service
Terms & Conditions
activate Services as part of a bundle with another company’s services (for example, cable
services, home phone services, etc.). The additional terms for bundled Services may either
modify or replace certain provisions in these Ts&Cs, including terms relating to activation,
invoicing/payment, and disputing charges. Also, a different dispute resolution provision may
apply to services provided by another company (the dispute resolution provisions in this
Agreement still apply to our Services). You will be provided details on any additional terms
with your selection of any bundled Service.
Our Policies
Services are subject to our business policies, practices and procedures (“Policies”), including,
but not limited to, our Privacy Policy and Acceptable Use Policy and Visitor Agreement – both
available at our Web site. You agree to all of our Policies when you use our Services. Our
Policies are subject to change at anytime with or without notice.
When You Accept The Agreement
You must have the legal capacity to accept the Agreement. You accept the Agreement when
you do any of the following: (a) sign a contract with us on paper or electronically; (b) accept
Agreement through an oral or electronic statement; (c) attempt to or in any way use the
Services; (d) pay for the Services; or (e) open any package or start any program that says you
are accepting the Agreement when doing so. If you don’t want to accept the Agreement,
don’t do any of these things.
Term Commitments & Early Termination Fees
Many of the Services (for example, rate plans and Device discounts) that we offer require you
to maintain certain Services with us for a minimum term, usually 1 or 2 years (“Term
Commitment”). You will be charged a fee (“Early Termination Fee”) for each line of Service
that you terminate early (i.e., prior to satisfying the Term Commitment) or for each line of
Service that we terminate early for good reason (for example, violating the payment or other
terms of the Agreement). Early Termination Fees are a part of our rates. Your exact Term
Commitment and Early Termination Fee may vary based on the Services you select and will be
disclosed to you during the sales transaction. Carefully review any Term Commitment and
Subscriber Agreement: General Terms and Conditions of Service
67
Early Termination Fee requirements prior to selecting Services. After you have satisfied your
Term Commitment, your Services continue on a month-to-month basis without any Early
Termination Fee, unless you agree to extend your Term Commitment or agree to a new Term
Commitment – for example, by accepting a new rate plan or upgrading your Device. As
explained directly below, there are instances when you will not be responsible for an Early
Termination Fee for terminating Services early.
When You Don’t Have To Pay An Early Termination Fee
You aren’t responsible for paying an Early Termination Fee when terminating Services: (a)
provided on a month-to-month basis; (b) consistent with our published trial period return
policy; or (c) in response to a materially adverse change we make to the Agreement as
described directly below.
Our Right To Change The Agreement & Your Related Rights
We may change any part of the Agreement at any time, including, but not limited to, rates,
charges, how we calculate charges, or your terms of Service. We will provide you notice of
material changes, and may provide you notice of non-material changes, in a manner
consistent with this Agreement (see “Providing Notice Under This Agreement” paragraph).
Except as provided below, if a change we make to the Agreement is material and has a
material adverse effect on you, you may terminate each line of Service materially affected
without incurring an Early Termination Fee only if you: (a) call us within 30 days after the
effective date of the change; and (b) specifically advise us that you wish to cancel Services
because of a material change to the Agreement that we have made. If you do not cancel
Service within 30 days of the change, an Early Termination Fee will apply if you terminate
Services before the end of any applicable Term Commitment.
Our Right To Suspend Or Terminate Services
We can, without notice, suspend or terminate any Service at any time for any reason,
including, but not limited to: (a) late payment; (b) exceeding an Account Spending Limit
(“ASL”); (c) harassing/threatening our employees or agents; (d) providing false information;
(e) interfering with our operations; (f) using/suspicion of using Services in any manner
68
Subscriber Agreement: General Terms and Conditions of Service
Terms & Conditions
restricted by or inconsistent with the Agreement; (g) breaching the Agreement, including our
Policies; (h) providing false, inaccurate, dated or unverifiable identification or credit
information, or becoming insolvent or bankrupt; (i) modifying a Device from its manufacturer
specifications; or (j) if we believe the action protects our interests, any customer’s interests or
our network.
Your Ability To Change Services & When Changes Are Effective
You typically can change Services upon request. In some instances, changes may be
conditioned on payment of an Early Termination Fee or certain other charges, or they may
require you to accept a new Term Commitment. Changes to Services are usually effective at
the start of your next full invoicing cycle. If the changes take place sooner, your invoice may
reflect pro-rated charges for your old and new Services.
Your Right To Terminate Services
You can terminate Services at any time by calling us and requesting that we deactivate all
Services. You’re responsible for all charges billed or incurred prior to deactivation. If Services
are terminated before the end of your invoicing cycle, we won’t prorate charges to the date of
termination and you won’t receive a credit or refund for any unused Services. Except as
provided above, you must also pay us an Early Termination Fee for each line of Service that
you terminate early.
Credit Checks & Credit Information
We agree to provide you Services on the condition you have and maintain satisfactory credit
according to our standards and policies. You agree to provide information we may request or
complete any applications we may provide you to facilitate our review. We rely on the credit
information you furnish, credit bureau reports or other data available from commercial credit
reference services, and other information (such as payment history with us) to determine
whether to provide or continue to provide you Services. The Services we offer you can vary
based on your credit history. We may at any time, based on your credit history, withdraw or
change Services, or place limits or conditions on the use of our Services. You agree to provide
Subscriber Agreement: General Terms and Conditions of Service
69
us updated credit information upon request. We may provide your payment history and other
account billing/charge information to any credit reporting agency or industry clearinghouse.
Account Spending Limits (“ASL”)
An ASL is a temporary or permanent limit (typically based on credit history, payment history,
or to prevent fraud) we place on the amount of unpaid charges you can accumulate on your
account, regardless of when payment on those charges is due. We reserve the right to
determine which charges count towards an ASL. If you have an ASL, we may suspend your
Services without prior notice if your account balance reaches the ASL, even if your account is
not past due. We may impose or increase an ASL at any time with notice. An ASL is for our
benefit only and should not be relied on by you to manage usage.
Deposits & Returning Deposits
We may at any time require a deposit, as a guarantee of payment, for you to establish or
maintain Service (“Deposit”). By providing us a Deposit, you grant us a security interest for all
current or future amounts owed to us. We may change the Deposit at any time with notice.
You can’t use a Deposit to make or delay payments. The Deposit, the length of time we hold
the Deposit, and changes to the Deposit are determined based on your credit history,
payment history and other factors. Unless prohibited by law, we may mix Deposits with our
other funds and it won’t earn interest and we reserve the right to return the Deposit as a
credit on your invoice at anytime. If your Services are terminated for any reason, we may keep
and apply your Deposit to any outstanding charges. We’ll send any remaining portion of
Deposit to your last known address within 90 days after your final invoice – if it is returned to
us, we will forward it on to the appropriate state authorities to the extent required by law.
Restrictions On Using Services
You can’t use our Services: (a) to transmit content/messages that are, or in any manner that
is, illegal, fraudulent, threatening, abusive, defamatory, or obscene; (b) in a way that could
cause damage or adversely affect our customers, reputation, network, property or Services;
(c) to communicate any unsolicited commercial voice, text, SMS, or other message; (d) to

code; or (e) in any way prohibited by the terms of our Services, the Agreement or our Policies.
Your Device, Number & E-mail Address; Caller ID
We don’t manufacture any Device we might sell to you or that is associated with our Services,
and we aren’t responsible for any defects, acts or omissions of the manufacturer. The only
warranties on your Device are the limited warranties given to you by the manufacturer
directly or that we pass through. Your Device is designed exclusively for use on our network
and in other coverage areas we make available to you. It will not accept wireless service from
another carrier. Except for any legal right you may have to port/transfer your phone number
to another carrier, you have no and cannot gain any (for example, through publication, use,
etc.) proprietary, ownership or other rights to any phone number, identification number, email address or other identifier we assign to you, your Device or your account. We’ll notify you
if we decide to change or reassign them.
Porting/Transferring Phone Numbers
We don’t guarantee that number transfers to or from us will be successful. If you authorize
another carrier to transfer a number away from us, that is considered a request by you to us
to terminate all of the Services associated with that number. You’re responsible for all
charges billed or incurred prior to deactivation and for any applicable Early Termination Fees.
Coverage; Where Your Device Will Work
Our coverage maps are available at our stores and at our Web site. The specific network
coverage you get will depend on the radio transmissions your Device can pick up and Services
you’ve chosen. Our coverage maps provide high level estimates of our coverage areas when
using Services outdoors under optimal conditions. Coverage isn’t available everywhere.
Estimating wireless coverage and signal strength is not an exact science. There are gaps in
coverage within our estimated coverage areas that, along with other factors both within and
beyond our control (network problems, software, signal strength, your Device, structures,
buildings, weather, geography, topography, etc.), may result in dropped and blocked
connections, slower data speeds, or otherwise impact the quality of Service. Services that
Subscriber Agreement: General Terms and Conditions of Service
71
rely on location information, such as E911 and GPS navigation, depend on your Device’s
ability to acquire satellite signals (typically not available indoors) and network coverage.
Roaming
“Roaming” typically refers to coverage on another carrier’s network that we make available to
you based on our agreements with other carriers. These agreements may change from time
to time and roaming coverage is subject to change. Your ability to receive roaming coverage
depends on the radio transmissions your Device can pick up. You can pick up roaming
coverage both within and outside our network coverage areas. Your Device will generally
indicate when you’re roaming. Depending on your Services, separate charges or limits on the
amount of minutes used while roaming may apply. Certain Services may not be available or
work the same when roaming (including data Services, voicemail, call waiting, etc.).
About Data Services & Content
Our data Services and your Device may allow you to access the internet, text, pictures, video,
games, graphics, music, email, sound and other materials (“Data Content”) or send Data
Content elsewhere. Some Data Content is available from us or our vendors, while other Data
Content can be accessed from others (third party Web sites, games, ringers, etc.). We make
absolutely no guarantees about the Data Content you access on your Device. Data Content
may be: (1) unsuitable for children/minors; (2) unreliable or inaccurate; or (3) offensive,
indecent or objectionable. You’re solely responsible for evaluating the Data Content accessed
by you or anyone on your account. We strongly recommend you monitor data usage by
children/minors. Data Content from third parties may also harm your Device or its software.
To protect our network, Services, or for other reasons, we may place restrictions on accessing
certain Data Content (such as certain Web sites, applications, etc.), impose separate charges,
limit throughput or the amount of data you can transfer, or otherwise limit or terminate
Services. If we provide you storage for Data Content you have purchased, we may delete the
Data Content with notice or place restrictions/limits on the use of storage areas. You may not
be able to make or receive voice calls while using data Services.

Subscriber Agreement: General Terms and Conditions of Service
Terms & Conditions
Specific Terms & Restrictions On Using Data Services
In addition to the rules for using all of our other Services, unless we identify the Service or
Device you have selected as specifically intended for that purpose (for example, wireless
routers, Data Link, etc.), you can’t use our data Services: (1) with server devices or host
computer applications, or other systems that drive continuous heavy traffic or data sessions;
and (2) as a substitute or backup for private lines or frame relay connections. We reserve the
right to limit or suspend any heavy, continuous data usage that adversely impacts our
network performance or hinders access to our network. If your Services include unlimited
web or data access, you also can’t use your Device as a modem for computers or other
equipment, unless we identify the Service or Device you have selected as specifically intended
for that purpose (for example, with “phone as modem” plans, connection card plans, wireless
router plans, etc.).
Activation & Miscellaneous Charges
Based on our Policies, we may charge activation, prepayment, reactivation, program or other
fees to establish or maintain Services. Certain transactions may also be subject to a charge
(for example, convenience payment, changing phone numbers, handset upgrades, etc.). You
will be provided notice of these types of fees before we complete the requested transaction.
Account & Service Charges; Pro-rating; Unused Minutes
You are responsible for all charges associated with your account and the Services on your
account, no matter who uses the Services. Charges include, but are not limited to, the
monthly recurring charges, usage charges, taxes, surcharges and fees associated with your
Services. These charges are described or referred to during the sales transaction, in our
marketing materials, and in confirmation materials we may send to you.
How We Calculate Your Charges For Billing Purposes
Regular Voice Calls: We round up partial minutes of use to the next full minute. Time starts
when you press “Talk” or your Device connects to the network and stops when you press
“End” or the network connection otherwise breaks. You’re charged for all calls that connect,
even to answering machines. You won’t be charged for unanswered calls or if you get a busy
Subscriber Agreement: General Terms and Conditions of Service
73
signal. For incoming calls answered, you’re charged from the time shortly before the Device
starts ringing until you press END or the network connection otherwise breaks. If charges vary
depending on the time of day that you place or receive calls (e.g., Nights and Weekend plans),
you’re charged for the entire call based on the rate that applies to the time period in which
the call starts.
iDEN Walkie-Talkie Charges: Charges for walkie-talkie calls are billed to the person who
starts the call and calculated by multiplying the duration of the call by the applicable rate
and number of participants. You’re charged at least 6 seconds of airtime for each call you
start; subsequent communications in the same call are rounded up to and billed to the
next second. Time begins when you press any button to start a walkie-talkie call and ends
approximately 6 seconds after completion of a communication to which no participant
responds – subsequent walkie-talkie communications are considered new calls. Depending
on your plan, nationwide, international or group walkie-talkie calls may use the local
walkie-talkie minutes in your plan and result in additional charges. Responses to call alert
transmissions are treated as new walkie-talkie transmissions even when responding
within 6 seconds of receiving the alert.
Data Usage: Unless we specifically tell you otherwise, data usage is measured in bytes,
kilobytes and megabytes – not in minutes/time. 1024 bytes equals 1 kilobyte (“KB”), and
1024 KB equals 1 megabyte. Bytes are rounded up to kilobytes, so you will be charged at least
1 KB for each data usage session (“data session”). Rounding occurs at the end of each data
session, and sometimes during a data session. Depending on your data Services, usage may
be charged against an allowance or on a fixed price per KB. If you are charged on a fixed price
per KB, any fractional cents will be rounded up to the next cent. You are charged for all data
directed to your Device’s internet address, including data sessions you did not initiate and for
incomplete transfers. As long as your Device is connected to our data network, you may incur
data charges. Examples of data you will be charged for includes the size of a requested file or
Data Content (game, ringer, etc.), web page graphics (logos, pictures, banners, advertisement,
etc.), additional data used in accessing, transporting and routing the file on our network, data
from partial or interrupted downloads, re-sent data, and data associated with unsuccessful
attempts to reach Web sites or use applications. These data charges are in addition to any
charges for the Data Content itself (game, ringer, etc.). Data used and charged to you will vary
widely, even between identical actions or data sessions. Estimates of data usage – for
74
Subscriber Agreement: General Terms and Conditions of Service
Terms & Conditions
example, the size of downloadable files – are not reliable predictors of actual usage. Your bill
won’t separately list the number of KB attributed to a specific action/data session.
Your Bill
Your bill provides you notice of your charges. It reflects monthly recurring charges (usually
billed one bill cycle in advance) and usage/transaction specific charges (usually billed in the
bill cycle in which they’re incurred). Some usage charges, such as those that depend on usage
information from a third party, may be billed in subsequent bill cycles and result in higher
than expected charges for that month. Bill cycles and dates may change from time to time.
Your bill may also include other important notices (for example, changes to this Agreement,
to your Service, legal notices, etc.). Your paper bill may not include individual call detail. Your
call detail is available online. Paper bills with call detail may be subject to an additional
charge. If you choose internet billing, you will not receive paper bills.
Your Payments; Late Fees
Payment is due in full as stated on your bill. If we do not receive payment in full by the date
specified on your bill, a late payment charge, which may be charged at the highest rate
permissible by law, may be applied to the total unpaid balance. We may also charge you any
costs we pay to a collection agency to collect unpaid balances from you. If we bill you for
amounts on behalf of a third party, payments received are first applied to our charges. You
may be charged additional fees for certain methods of payment. We may charge you, up to
the highest amount permitted by law, for returned checks or other payments paid by you and
denied for any reason by a financial institution. Acceptance of payments (even if marked
“paid in full”) does not waive our right to collect all amounts that you owe us. We may restrict
your payment methods to cashier’s check, money order, or other similar secure form of
payment at any time for good reason.
Taxes & Government Fees
You agree to pay all federal, state and local taxes, fees and other assessments that we’re
required by law to collect on the Services we provide you and remit to the government. These
charges may change from time to time without advance notice. If you’re claiming any tax
Subscriber Agreement: General Terms and Conditions of Service
75
exemption, you must provide us with a valid exemption certificate. Tax exemptions generally
won’t be applied retroactively.
Surcharges
You agree to pay the surcharges, fees and other charges that we assess to recoup our
government costs or costs of complying with certain government programs (“Surcharges”).
Surcharges aren’t taxes or government mandated charges; they’re charges we choose to
collect from you. Surcharges are subject to change, sometimes on a monthly or quarterly
basis. Examples of Surcharges include, but are not limited to: Universal Service Fund, E911,
Federal Programs Cost Recovery, Federal Wireless Number Pooling and Portability, and gross
receipts charges. We will make efforts to provide you notice of any changes to Surcharges in a
manner consistent with this Agreement (see “Providing Notice Under This Agreement”
paragraph). However, since most Surcharges are based on amounts set by the government or
based on government formulas, it will not always be possible to provide advance notice of
new Surcharges or changes in the amount of existing Surcharges. Information on Surcharges
is provided during the sales transaction and is available at our Web site.
Disputing Charges - You Must Still Pay Undisputed Charges
Any dispute to a charge on your bill must be made within 60 days of the date of the bill that
initially contained the charge. Disputes can only be made by calling or writing us as directed
on your invoice or elsewhere. You accept all charges not properly disputed within the above
time period – undisputed charges must still be paid as stated on your bill.
Protecting Our Network & Services
We can take any action to: (1) protect our network, our rights and interests, or the rights of
others; or (2) optimize or improve the overall use of our network and Services. Some of these
actions may interrupt or prevent legitimate communications and usage – for example,
message filtering/blocking software to prevent SPAM or viruses, limiting throughput, limiting
access to certain Web sites, applications or other Data Content, etc. For additional
information on what we do to protect our customers, network, Services and equipment, see
our Acceptable Use Policy and Visitor Agreement at our Web site.
76
Subscriber Agreement: General Terms and Conditions of Service
Terms & Conditions
Your Privacy
You agree to the terms of our Privacy Policy, available at our Web site, when you use our
Services. This policy may change from time to time, so review this policy with regularity and
care. Among other things, the policy includes important information on what information we
collect about you, how we use that information, and with whom we share that information
(for example, to provide you certain Services, to protect our rights and interests, to respond to
legal process, to facilitate a merger, etc.). Also, to ensure the quality of our Services and for
other lawful purposes, we may also monitor or record calls between us (for example, your
conversations with our customer service or sales departments). If you do not agree with the
terms of our Privacy Policy, do not purchase or use our Services.
Location Based Services
Our network generally knows the location of your Device when it is outdoors and turned on.
By using various technologies to locate your Device, we can provide enhanced emergency 911
services, and optional location-sensitive services provided by us or a third party.
Environmental factors (such as structures, buildings, weather, geography, landscape, and
topography) can significantly impact the ability to access your Device’s location information
and use of location-sensitive services. The terms and conditions of any location-sensitive
service that you purchase from us may provide more information about how location
information is used and disclosed. Use of some of location-sensitive services may require
network coverage. If any Device on your account uses a location-sensitive service, you (the
accountholder) must clearly and regularly notify the actual user of your Device that their
location may be tracked or discovered. For additional information on location-sensitive
services, see our Privacy Policy at our Web site.
911 Or Other Emergency Calls
Public Safety Officials advise that when making 911 or other emergency calls, you should
always be prepared to provide your location information. Unlike traditional wireline phones,
depending on a number of factors (e.g., whether your Device is GPS enabled, where you are,
whether local emergency service providers have upgraded their equipment, etc.), 911
operators may not know your phone number, your location or the location of your Device. In
Subscriber Agreement: General Terms and Conditions of Service
77
certain circumstances, an emergency call may be routed to a state patrol dispatcher or
alternative location set by local emergency service providers. Enhanced 911 service (“E911”),
where enabled by local emergency authorities, uses GPS technology to provide location
information. Even when available, however, E911 does not always provide accurate location
information. If your Device is indoors or for some other reason cannot acquire a satellite
signal, you may not be located. Some Devices have a safety feature that prevents use of the
keypad after dialing 911 – you should follow voice prompts when interacting with emergency
service providers employing IVR systems to screen calls.
If Your Device Is Lost or Stolen
Call us immediately if your Device is lost or stolen because you may be responsible for usage
charges before you notify us of the alleged loss or theft. You agree to cooperate if we choose
to investigate the matter (provide facts, sworn statements, etc.). We may not waive any Early
Termination Fees if you choose to terminate Services as a result of loss or theft of your Device.
Disclaimer of Warranties
WE MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING (TO THE
EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW) ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, NONINFRINGEMENT OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE CONCERNING YOUR SERVICES
(INCLUDING YOUR DEVICE). WE DON’T PROMISE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE SERVICES
AND DON’T AUTHORIZE ANYONE TO MAKE WARRANTIES ON OUR BEHALF.
You Agree We Are Not Responsible For Certain Problems
You agree that neither we nor our vendors, suppliers or licensors are responsible for any
damages resulting from: (a) anything done or not done by someone else; (b) providing or
failing to provide Services, including, but not limited to, deficiencies or problems with a
Device or network coverage (for example, dropped, blocked, interrupted calls/messages, etc.);
(c) traffic or other accidents, or any health-related claims relating to our Services; (d) Data
Content or information accessed while using our Services; (e) an interruption or failure in
accessing or attempting to access emergency services from a Device, including through 911,
Enhanced 911 or otherwise; (f) interrupted, failed, or inaccurate location information
78
Subscriber Agreement: General Terms and Conditions of Service
Terms & Conditions
services, (g) information or communication that is blocked by a spam filter, or (h) things
beyond our control, including acts of God (for example, weather-related phenomena, fire,
earthquake, hurricane, etc.), riot, strike, war, terrorism or government orders or acts.
You Agree Our Liability Is Limited - No Consequential Damages.
TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW, OUR LIABILITY FOR MONETARY DAMAGES FOR ANY
CLAIMS YOU MAY HAVE AGAINST US IS LIMITED TO NO MORE THAN THE PROPORTIONATE
AMOUNT OF THE SERVICE CHARGES ATTRIBUTABLE TO THE AFFECTED PERIOD. UNDER NO
CIRCUMSTANCES ARE WE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE OR
SPECIAL DAMAGES OF ANY NATURE WHATSOEVER ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO
PROVIDING OR FAILING TO PROVIDE SERVICES IN CONNECTION WITH A DEVICE, INCLUDING,
BUT NOT LIMITED TO, LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF BUSINESS, OR COST OF REPLACEMENT
PRODUCTS AND SERVICES.
DISPUTE RESOLUTION
We Agree To First Contact Each Other With Any Disputes
We each agree to first contact each other with any disputes and provide a written description
of the problem, all relevant documents/information and the proposed resolution. You agree
to contact us with disputes by calling or writing us as instructed on your invoice. We will
contact you by letter to your billing address or on your Device.
Instead Of Suing In Court, We Each Agree To Arbitrate Disputes
We each agree to finally settle all disputes (as defined and subject to any specific exceptions
below) only by arbitration. In arbitration, there’s no judge or jury and review is limited.
However, just as a court would, the arbitrator must honor the terms and limitations in the
Agreement and can award the same damages and relief, including any attorney’s fees
authorized by law. The arbitrator’s decision and award is final and binding, with some
exceptions under the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”), and judgment on the award may be
entered in any court with jurisdiction. We each also agree as follows:
Subscriber Agreement: General Terms and Conditions of Service
79
(1) “Disputes” are any claims or controversies against each other related in any way to our
Services or the Agreement, INCLUDING, but not limited to, coverage, Devices, privacy, or
advertising, even if it arises after Services have terminated – this includes claims you bring
against our employees, agents, affiliates or other representatives, or that we bring against
you.
(2) If either of us wants to arbitrate a dispute, we agree to send written notice to the other
providing a description of the dispute, previous efforts to resolve the dispute, all
supporting documents/information, and the proposed resolution. Notice to you will be
sent to your billing address and notice to us will be sent to: General Counsel; Arbitration
Office; 2001 Edmund Halley Drive VARESP0513-502; Reston, Virginia 20191. We agree to
make attempts to resolve the dispute. If we cannot resolve the dispute within forty-five
(45) days of receipt of the notice to arbitrate, then we may submit the dispute to formal
arbitration.
(3) The FAA applies to this Agreement and arbitration provision. We each agree the FAA’s
provisions, not state law, govern all questions of whether a dispute is subject to
arbitration.
(4) The arbitration will be administered by the International Institute for Conflict
Prevention and Resolution (“CPR”) under its arbitration rules. If any of the CPR’s rules
conflict with the terms of the Agreement, the terms of the Agreement apply. You can
obtain procedures, rules, and fee information from the CPR at 1-212-949-6490 or
www.cpradr.org.
(5) Unless we each agree otherwise, the Arbitration will be conducted by a single neutral
arbitrator and will take place in the county of your last billing address. The federal or state
law that applies to the Agreement will also apply during the arbitration.
(6) We each agree not to pursue arbitration on a classwide basis. We each agree that
any arbitration will be solely between you and us (not brought on behalf of or
together with another individual’s claim). If for any reason any court or arbitrator
holds that this restriction is unconscionable or unenforceable, then our agreement to
arbitrate doesn’t apply and the dispute must be brought in court.
(7) We each are responsible for our respective costs relating to counsel, experts, and
witnesses, as well as any other costs relating to the arbitration. However, we will cover any
80
Subscriber Agreement: General Terms and Conditions of Service
Terms & Conditions
arbitration administrative or filing fees above: (a) $25 if you are seeking less than $1,000
from us; or (b) the equivalent court filing fees for a court action in the appropriate
jurisdiction if you are seeking $1,000 or more from us.
Exceptions To Our Agreement To Arbitrate Disputes
Either of us may bring qualifying claims in small claims court. In addition, this arbitration
provision does not prevent you from filing your dispute with any federal, state or local
government agency that can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf.
No Class Actions
TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW, WE EACH WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO PURSUE DISPUTES ON A
CLASSWIDE BASIS; THAT IS, TO EITHER JOIN A CLAIM WITH THE CLAIM OF ANY OTHER
PERSON OR ENTITY, OR ASSERT A CLAIM IN A REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY ON BEHALF OF
ANYONE ELSE IN ANY LAWSUIT, ARBITRATION OR OTHER PROCEEDING.
No Trial By Jury
TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW, WE EACH WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY
LAWSUIT, ARBITRATION OR OTHER PROCEEDING.
Indemnification
You agree to indemnify, defend and hold us harmless from any claims arising out of your
actions, including, but not limited to, failing to provide appropriate notices regarding
location-sensitive services (see “Location Based Services” paragraph), or violating this
Agreement, any applicable law or regulation or the rights of any third party.
Providing Notice To Each Other Under The Agreement
Except as the Agreement specifically provides otherwise, you must provide us notice by
calling or writing us as instructed on your invoice. We will provide you notice in your bill,
correspondence to your last known billing address, to any fax number or e-mail address
Subscriber Agreement: General Terms and Conditions of Service
81
you’ve provided us, by calling you on your home phone or Device, by voice message on your
Device or home phone, or by text message on your Device.
Other Important Terms
Subject to federal law or unless the Agreement specifically provides otherwise, this
Agreement is governed solely by the laws of the state encompassing the area code assigned
to your Device, without regard to the conflicts of law rules of that state. If either of us waives
or doesn’t enforce a requirement under this Agreement in an instance, we don’t waive our
right to later enforce that requirement. Except as the Agreement specifically provides
otherwise, if any part of the Agreement is held invalid or unenforceable, the rest of this
Agreement remains in full force and effect. This Agreement isn’t for the benefit of any 3rd
party except our corporate parents, affiliates, subsidiaries, agents, and predecessors and
successors in interest. You can’t assign the Agreement or any of your rights or duties under it.
We can assign the Agreement. The Agreement and the documents it incorporates make up
the entire agreement between us and replaces all prior written or spoken agreements – you
can’t rely on any contradictory documents or statements by sales or service representatives.
The rights, obligations and commitments in the Agreement that, by their nature, would
logically continue beyond the termination of Services (including, but not limited to, those
relating to billing, payment, 911, dispute resolution, no class action, no jury trial), survive
termination of Services.
