Emergency Alerts service allows you to receive automatic alerts in times of crisis. (e.g., earthquake, hurricanes, etc.)
Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA), also known as CMAS, is a part of a national alerting system called
IPAWS (Integrated Public Alert and Warning System) that enables emergency management officials to
rapidly disseminate the warnings and safety information via text alerts to wireless phones based on the
phones’ geographic location, The Federal Emergency Management Agency or FEMA is responsible for
receiving the alerting information and forwarding the alerts to participating wireless carriers such as
Cricket. Such alerts may come from the President of the United States; the National Weather Service, state
or county public safety officials. This system is integrated into the same national alerting services that
serve television and radio today. For more information regarding WEA/CMAS please go to: FEMA website.

FCC Hearing-Aid Compatibility (HAC) Regulations for Wireless Devices
This phone has been tested and rated for use with hearing aids for some of the wireless technologies that it uses.
However, there may be some newer wireless technologies used in this phone that have not been tested yet for use
AUTHORITY 132
with hearing aids. It is important to try the different features of this phone thoroughly and in different locations,
using your hearing aid or cochlear implant, to determine if you hear any interfering noise. Consult your service
provider or the manufacturer of this phone for information on hearing aid compatibility. If you have questions
about return or exchange policies, consult your service provider or phone retailer.
On July 10, 2003, the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Report and Order in WT Docket 01 - 09
modified the exception of wireless phones under the Hearing Aid Compatibility Act of 1988 (HAC Act) to require
digital wireless phones be compatible with hearing-aids. The intent of the HAC Act is to ensure reasonable access
to telecommunications services for persons with hearing disabilities. While 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 a rating system for
wireless phones, to assist hearing device users find phones that may be compatible with their hearing devices.
Not all phones have been rated. Phones that are rated have the rating on their box or a label located on the box.
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 use a rated phone successfully.
Trying out the phone with your hearing device is the best way to evaluate it for your personal needs.
M-Ratings: Phones rated M3 or M4 meet FCC requirements and are likely to generate less interference to hearing
devices than phones that are not rated. M4 is the better/higher of the two ratings. Your device is rated M4.
T-Ratings: Phones rated T3 or T4 meet FCC requirements and are likely to be more usable with a hearing aid’s
telecoil than phones that are not rated.
T4 is the better/higher of the two ratings. Your device is rated T3.
Please power off the Bluetooth function while using hearing aid devices with your AuthorityTM. Hearing
devices may also be rated. Your hearing device manufacturer or hearing health professional may help you
find this rating. Higher ratings mean that the hearing device is relatively immune to interference noise.
The hearing aid and wireless phone rating values are then added together. A sum of 5 is considered acceptable for
normal use. A sum of 6 is considered for better use. A sum of 8 is considered for best use. In the above example, if a
hearing aid meets the M2 level rating and the wireless phone meets the M3 level rating, the sum of the two values
equal M5. This should provide the hearing aid user with“normal usage”while using their hearing aid with the particular
wireless phone. “Normal usage” in this context is defined as a signal quality that is acceptable for normal operation.
This methodology applies equally for T ratings. The M mark is intended to be synonymous with the U mark. The
T mark is intended to be synonymous with the UT mark. The M and T marks are recommended by the Alliance for
Telecommunications Industries Solutions (ATIS). The U and UT marks are referenced in Section 20.19 of the FCC
Rules. The HAC rating and measurement procedure are described in the American National Standards Institute
(ANSI) C63.19 standard.
