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 activation
card included with your phone.
Unlocking Your Phone
To unlock your phone, follow these easy steps:
1. Press
to turn the phone on.

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.
Tip:
If you can't recall your lock code, try using the last four digits
of your wireless phone number. If this doesn't work, call
Sprint Customer Service at 1-888-211-4727.

Section 2A: Your Phone: The Basics
Using Your Phone’s Battery and Charger
Warning!
Use only Sprint-approved or manufacturer-approved
batteries and chargers with your phone. The failure to use
a Sprint-approved or manufacturer-approved battery and
charger may increase the risk that your phone will
overheat, catch fire, or explode, resulting in serious bodily
injury, death, or property damage.
Phone Basics
Sprint- or manufacturer-approved batteries and accessories
can be found at Sprint Stores or through your phone’s
manufacturer, or call 1-866-343-1114 to order. They’re also
available at www.sprint.com.
Battery Capacity
Your phone is equipped with a Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) battery. It
allows you to recharge your battery before it is fully drained.
The battery provides up to 3.2 hours of continuous digital talk
time.
When the battery reaches 5% of its capacity, the battery icon
blinks. When there are approximately two minutes of talk
time left, the phone sounds an audible alert and then powers
down.
Note:
Long backlight settings, searching for service, vibrate mode,
Bluetooth, and browser use will affect the battery’s talk and
standby times.
Tip:
Be sure to watch your phone’s battery level indicator and
charge the battery before it runs out of power.
Section 2A: Your Phone: The Basics
25
Installing the Battery
To install the Li-Ion battery:
1. Pressing down on the release (1), remove the battery
cover (located on the back of the phone) by sliding it in
the direction of the arrow (2).
2. Carefully lift the battery cover away from the phone.
3. Slide the battery into the compartment so that the tabs
on the end align with the slots at the bottom of the
phone, making sure to line up the gold contacts (3).
4. Gently press down on the battery until it snaps into
place (4).
26
Section 2A: Your Phone: The Basics
5. Replace the cover by lining up the tabs and sliding the
cover up until it snaps into place (5).
Phone Basics
Removing the Battery
To remove the Li-Ion battery:
1. Follow steps 1 and 2 from “Installing the Battery” on
page 26.
2. Grip the battery from the side (1) and lift it up and
out (2).
Section 2A: Your Phone: The Basics
27
Caution!
Be careful not to damage the contact pins during this
process.
Charging the Battery
Your phone’s Li-Ion battery is rechargeable and should be
charged as soon as possible so you can begin using your
phone.
Tip:
It is recommended that you completely charge your battery
before first using your phone. This guarantees you begin
using your phone with a fully charged battery.
Keeping track of your battery’s charge is important. If your
battery level becomes too low, your phone automatically
shuts off and you will lose all the information you were just
working on. For a quick check of your phone’s battery level,
glance at the battery charge indicator located in the
upper-right corner of your phone’s display screen. If the
battery charge is getting too low, the battery icon (
)
blinks and the phone sounds a warning tone.
Always use a Sprint-approved desktop charger, travel charger,
or vehicle power adapter to charge your battery.
Warning:
28
Using the wrong battery charger could cause damage
to your phone and void the warranty.
Section 2A: Your Phone: The Basics
Using the Phone Charger
To use the phone charger provided with your phone:
䊳
Phone Basics
Note:
Plug the round end of the AC adapter into the phone’s
power interface connector and the other end into an
electrical outlet.
䡲 A charging icon located in the top right corner of the
outside LCD lets you know the battery is charging.
䡲 An onscreen indicator lets you know that the battery
is charged.
It takes about three hours to fully recharge a completely
rundown (discharged) battery.

Using Data Roam Guard
Roaming
Roaming is the ability to make or receive calls when you’re off the
Sprint National Network. Your new dual band/tri-mode M300
by Samsung® works anywhere on the 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
93
Understanding Roaming
Recognizing the Roaming Icon on the Display Screen
Your phone’s display screen always lets you know when
you’re off the Sprint National Network. Whenever you are
roaming, the phone displays the roaming icon (
).
Tip:
Remember, when you are using your phone off the network,
always dial numbers using 11 digits (1 + area code + number).
Note:
Unless your Sprint 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 Sprint National Network. However, you
may not be able to access certain features, such as Sprint
Vision.
Note:
94
If you’re on a call when you leave the Sprint National 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 service is available, turn your phone off and on again to
reconnect to Sprint National Network.
Section 2D: Controlling Your Roaming Experience
Checking for Voicemail Messages While Roaming
When you are roaming off the Sprint National 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 time.
To check your voicemail while roaming:
1. Dial 1 + area code + your wireless phone number.
2. Enter your voicemail passcode at the prompt and follow
the voice prompts.
When you return to the Sprint National Network, voicemail
notification will resume normally.

Network only and prevent roaming on other

Section 2D: Controlling Your Roaming Experience
Using Call Guard
Your phone has two ways of alerting you when you are
roaming off the Sprint National 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 network.)
To turn Call Guard on or off:
1. Select Menu > Settings > Roaming > Call Guard.
2. Highlight On or Off and press
Note:

on your wireless phone.
Call Guard is set to On by default.
Section 2D: Controlling Your Roaming Experience

Using Data Roam Guard
Depending on service availability and roaming agreements,
your phone may be able to access data services while
roaming on certain digital systems. You can set your phone to
alert you when you are roaming off the Sprint National
Network and try to use data services such as messaging.
To turn Data Roam Guard on or off:
1. Select Menu > Settings > Roaming > Data Roam Guard.
2. Highlight Always Ask or Never Ask and press

feature off. You will not be notified of your roaming
status when accessing data services.

Activating Voice Recognition
In addition to Sprint Voice Command (page 215), built-in
voice recognition software 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 predesignated command
displayed on your screen in a normal tone of voice to perform
the desired function.
To activate voice recognition:
1. Press and hold
TALK
. (The phone prompts you to say a
command.)
2. Wait for the beep and then say one of the following
commands:
䡲 Voice Dial
䡲 Contacts
䡲 Voice Memo
䡲 Status
䡲 My Phone #
When it recognizes one of these commands, the phone takes
the corresponding action. If the phone does not hear a
command within approximately eight seconds, it deactivates
voice recognition without taking any action.
Note:

If you want to use a different button to activate voice
recognition, press the left softkey for Menu and select Settings.
Press 9 for Launch Pad. On this menu, you can change button
assignments, including the button used to launch “Voice
Dial,” which is the voice recognition application.
Section 2H: Using Your Phone’s Voice Services
Using Voice Dial
Tips for using Voice Dial:
䢇 Voice Dial works best in quieter environments.
䢇 When saying a number (Digit Dialing), speak at a normal
speed and say each digit clearly. There is no need to pause
between digits.
䢇 The phone recognizes the digits one, two, three, four, five,
six, seven, eight, nine, and zero or oh. The phone does not
recognize numbers such as “one eight hundred” for
“1-800.” Instead, say “one-eight-zero-zero.”
䢇 The phone recognizes only valid seven- or ten-digit North
American phone numbers.
䢇 If your phone does not usually recognize you correctly
when you are using Digit Dial, try adapting Digit Dial to
your voice, which can significantly improve accuracy for
some speakers. (See “Adapting Digit Dial” on page 130 for
details.)
To place a call using Voice Dial:
1. Activate voice recognition by pressing and holding
TALK
.
(The phone prompts you for a command.)
2. Say “Voice Dial.” (The phone prompts you to say the
name or number clearly.)
3. Say a valid contact entry or seven- or ten-digit North
American phone number naturally and clearly, or say a
name from your Contacts.
4. If the phone asks you, “Did you say,” followed by the
correct name or number, say “Yes.”
Section 2H: Using Your Phone’s Voice Services
129
Voice Services
Voice Dial allows you to dial any valid seven- or ten-digit
North American phone number or Contacts entry by speaking
the number or name naturally, without pausing.
5. If the phone asks you, “Did you say,” followed by an
incorrect name or number, say “No.” (If there are other
alternatives, the phone will prompt you with the next
one. (You can also select the desired number by using
the navigation key. The phone will then dial the
number.)
Enabling or Disabling Digit Dial Choice Lists
You can customize whether the Digit Dial feature displays the
list of top voice recognition choices or automatically dials the
first number, without displaying a choice list.
To enable or disable choice lists for Digit Dial:
1. Select Menu > Voice Kit > Voice Service.
2. Select Settings (
).
3. Select Choice Lists and press
4. Select Digit Dialing and press
MENU
OK
.
MENU
OK
.
5. Press the navigation key up or down to select Automatic,
Always On, or Always Off and press
MENU
OK
.
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.
130
Section 2H: Using Your Phone’s Voice Services
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:
Voice Services
ONLY adapt Digit Dial if the system is frequently
misrecognizing your speech. You can always restore the
system to its original factory setting.
Adaptation involves recording several digit sequences to
teach the system your voice. The adaptation process takes
about three 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 rerecord the sequence.
To adapt Digit Dial to your voice:
1. Select Menu > Voice Kit > Voice Service.
2. Select Settings (
).
3. Select Digit Dialing and press
MENU
OK
.
4. Select Adapt Digits and press
MENU
OK
. (The phone displays
the first digit sequence.)
5. When you are ready to start recording, press
MENU
OK
. (The
phone prompts you to say the first sequence of digits.)
Section 2H: Using Your Phone’s Voice Services
131
6. Wait for the beep, and then repeat the digits using a
normal tone of voice. (The phone plays back your
recording and asks “Did the recording sound OK?”)
䡲 If the recording is acceptable (no mistakes and no
background noises), say “Yes.”
䡲 If you need to rerecord the digits to fix any
problems, say “No.” (The phone then prompts you to
say the digits again.)
7. Wait for the beep, and then record the digits again.
(Repeat this step until you are satisfied with the
recording.)
8. After confirming that the recording is acceptable, repeat
the recording process with the next set of digits. (After
six sets of digits, the phone will ask you whether you
want to do more adaptation. Answer “Yes.”)
9. Repeat steps 5-8 for another nine sets of digits.
10. When you are finished with a full session, you will reach
a screen that reads, “Adaptation Complete.”
Note:
132
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 halfway point.

information that will help you safely use your phone. Failure to
read and follow the information provided in this phone guide
may result in serious bodily injury, death, or property
damage.
Section 4A: Important Safety Information
223
General Precautions
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 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.
䢇 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.
Note:
224
For the best care of your phone, ensure that only
Sprint-authorized personnel service your phone and
accessories. Failure to do so may be dangerous and void your
warranty.
Section 4A: Important Safety Information
Maintaining Safe Use of and Access to
Your Phone
Do Not Rely on Your Phone for Emergency Calls
Mobile phones operate using radio signals, which cannot guarantee
connection in all conditions. Therefore you should never rely solely upon
any mobile phone for essential communication (e.g., medical
emergencies). Emergency calls may not be possible on all cellular networks
or when certain network services or mobile phone features are in use.
Check with your local service provider for details.
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:
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 radio frequency (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.
Section 4A: Important Safety Information
225
Important Safety Information
Purchase an optional hands-free accessory at your local Sprint
Store, or call the Sprint Accessory Hotline at
1-800-974-2221 or by dialing #222 on your phone.
Note:
Always turn off the phone in health care facilities and request
permission before using the phone near medical equipment.
Turning Off Your Phone Before Flying
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 two-way 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, flammable liquids, 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 invoice.

Section 4A: Important Safety Information
Caring for the Battery
Protecting Your Battery
Disposal of Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) Batteries
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.
Section 4A: Important Safety Information
227
Important Safety Information
The guidelines listed below help you get the most out of your battery’s
performance. Recently, there have been some public reports of wireless
phone batteries overheating, catching fire, or exploding. It appears that
many, if not all, of these reports involve counterfeit or inexpensive,
aftermarket-brand batteries with unknown or questionable
manufacturing standards. Sprint is not aware of similar problems with
Sprint phones resulting from the proper use of batteries and accessories
approved by Sprint or the manufacturer of your phone. Use only Sprint- or
manufacturer-approved batteries and accessories found at Sprint Stores or
through your phone’s manufacturer, or call 1-866-343-1114 to order.
They’re also available at http://www.sprint.com. 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.
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 113° F (-20° C to 45° C)
Using Your Phone With a Hearing Aid
Device
Your Sprint Nextel 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 that may
be compatible with their hearing devices. Not all phones have been rated.
Phones that have been rated have a label located on the box.
Your Sprint Vision M300 phone by Samsung has an M4 rating and a 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 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
labeled. M4 is the better/higher of the two ratings.
T-Ratings: Phones 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 phones. 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 phone. Hearing aid
devices should have ratings similar to phones. Ask your hearing healthcare
professional for the rating of your hearing aid. Add the rating of your
hearing aid and your phone 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.
228
Section 4A: Important Safety Information
Thus, if you pair an M3 hearing aid with an M3 phone, you will have a
combined rating of six for "best use." This is synonymous for T ratings.
Sprint Nextel further suggests you experiment with multiple phones (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 phone, promptly return it to the store within 30 days of purchase.
With the Sprint 30-day Risk-Free Guarantee, you may return the phone
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.
Getting the Best Hearing Device Experience With Your Phone
To further minimize interference:
䢇 Set the phone’s display and keypad backlight settings to ensure the
minimum time interval:
1. Select Menu > Settings > Display > Backlight.
Select Main Display or Keypad and press
3.
Select the minimum time setting (8 seconds) and press

Radio Frequency (RF) Energy
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 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 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. 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.
230
Section 4A: Important Safety Information
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.
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.
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 M300 are:
AMPS/CDMA mode (Part 22):
