voicemail, and make a call. You should fully charge
your battery as soon as possible. See “Charging the
Battery” on page 16 for details.
WARNING
If your handset has a touch screen display,
please note that a touch screen responds
best to a light touch from the pad of your
finger or a non-metallic stylus. Using
excessive force, or a metallic object when
pressing on the touch screen, may damage
the tempered glass surface and void the
warranty. See “Manufacturer’s Warranty” on
page 113.
When you have finished, make a phone call to confirm
your activation. If your phone is still not activated, or you

Note
If you are having difficulty with activation, contact
Sprint Customer Service by dialing 1-888-211-4727

Activating Your Phone
䢇
If you purchased your phone at a Sprint Store, it is probably
activated and ready to use.
䢇

Note
Voicemail Passcode
Sprint strongly recommends that you create a
passcode when setting up your voicemail to protect
against unauthorized access. Without a passcode,
anyone who has access to your handset is able to
access your voicemail messages.
For more information about using your voicemail, see
“Voicemail” on page 78.
Sprint Account Passwords
As a Sprint customer, you enjoy unlimited access to
your personal account information, your voicemail
account, and your data services account. To ensure
that no one else has access to your information, you
will need to create passwords to protect your privacy.
Account Username and Password
If you are the account owner, you will create an account
username and password when you sign on to
www.sprint.com. (Click Need to register for access? to get
started.) If you are not the account owner (if someone
else receives the bill for your Sprint service), you can
get a sub-account password at www.sprint.com.

1A. Setting Up Service
Voicemail Password
You’ll create your voicemail password (or passcode)
when you set up your voicemail. See “Setting Up Your
Voicemail” on page 3 for more information on your
voicemail password.
Data Services Password
With your Sprint phone, you may elect to set up an
optional data services password to control access and
authorize Premium Service purchases.
For more information, or to change your passwords,
sign on to www.sprint.com or call Sprint Customer
Service at 1-888-211-4727.

Battery and Charger
WARNING
Use only Sprint-approved or Samsungapproved batteries and chargers with your
phone. The failure to use a Sprint-approved or
Samsung-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.
Sprint-approved or Samsung-approved batteries and
accessories can be found at Sprint Stores or through
Samsung; or call 1-866-866-7509 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 6.5 hours of
continuous digital talk time. When the battery level is
low, the battery icon blinks red and a “Low Battery
Recharge soon” message appears on the screen.
The phone sounds an alert every 5 minutes while the
battery is low, and every 1 minute during a call.
Note
Long backlight settings, searching for service, vibrate
mode, browser use, and other variables may reduce
the battery’s talk and standby times.
Tip
Watch your phone’s battery level indicator and
charge the battery before it runs out of power.
Installing the Battery
1. In a single motion, press down on the cover and
slide it towards the grill (1) and then carefully lift the

Pauses
You can dial or save phone numbers with pauses for

Tip
Creating a saved series of numbers with pauses is
very useful when entering data into an automated

information requires dialing a toll-free number,
followed by an account number and then your PIN,
you could place a two-second pause after each
group of numbers to ensure that they would be read
correctly.
There are two types of pauses available on your phone:
䢇 Hard Pause sends the next set of numbers after you
press Send Tones (left softkey) from an onscreen
popup. (This is indicated with a P within the number
sequence.)
䢇 2sec Pause automatically sends the next set of

off the Sprint Nationwide Network. Anytime you are
roaming, the phone displays the roaming icon ( ). If
you are roaming on a digital system, you will see the
roaming icon along with the text – Digital Roam – .
Tip
Remember, when you are using your phone off the
Sprint Nationwide Network, always dial numbers
using 11 digits (1 + area code + number).
Roaming on Other Digital Networks
When you’re roaming on digital networks, your call

Network. However, you may not be able to access
certain features, such as data services, depending on
the available network.

Nationwide Network, 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 the network.

Roaming
When you are roaming off the Sprint Nationwide
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 period of time.

4A. Important Safety Information
General Precautions
There are several simple guidelines to operating your phone
properly and maintaining safe, satisfactory service.
䢇 To maximize performance, do not touch the bottom portion
of your phone where the internal antenna is located while
using the phone.
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 Do not expose your phone to direct sunlight for extended
periods of time (such as on the dashboard of a car).
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
For the best care of your device, only Sprint-authorized or
Samsung-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 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
Purchase an optional hands-free accessory at your local
Sprint Store, or call Sprint at 1-866-866-7509. You can also
dial # 2 2 2 on your phone.
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 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.
Important Safety Information
Sprint M240.book Page 105 Sunday, July 26, 2009 11:11 AM
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.
Note
Always turn off the phone in healthcare 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
Warning Regarding Display
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.
The display on your handset is made of glass or acrylic and
could break if your handset is dropped or if it receives
significant impact. Do not use if screen is broken or cracked as
this could cause injury to you.
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:
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 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.

4A. Important Safety Information
Using Your Phone With a Hearing
Aid Device
A number of Sprint phones have been tested for hearing aid
device compatibility. When some wireless phones 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.
Some hearing devices are more immune than others to this
interference noise, and phones 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 phones and hearing devices to determine
usability rating categories for both.
Ratings have been developed for mobile phones to assist
hearing device users find phones that may be compatible with
their hearing device. Not all phones have been rated for
compatibility with hearing devices. Phones that have been
rated have a label located on the box. Your Samsung
SPH-M240 has an M4 and T4 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 phone with a higher rating may still
cause unacceptable noise levels in the hearing device. 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 for
hearing aid compatibility and are likely to generate less
interference to hearing devices than unrated phones. (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.)
Hearing aid devices may also be measured for immunity to
interference noise from wireless phones and 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
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 phone, you will
have a combined rating of six for “excellent use.” This is
synonymous for T ratings.
Sprint 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. Press
> Settings > Display > Backlight.
2. Highlight the minimum time interval setting and press
.
䢇 Position the phone so the internal antenna is farthest from
your hearing aid.
䢇 Move the phone around to find the point with least
interference.

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 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 about its return and exchange policies
and for information on hearing aid compatibility.

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
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-approved or Samsung-approved batteries and
accessories found at Sprint Stores or through Samsung, or
call 1-866-866-7509 to order.
108
4A. Important Safety Information
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.
In order to avoid damage, charge the battery only in
temperatures that range from 32° F to 113° F (0° C to 45° C).
Don’t use the battery charger in direct sunlight or in high
humidity areas, such as the bathroom.
Never dispose of the battery by incineration.
Keep the metal contacts on top of the battery clean.
Don’t attempt to disassemble or short-circuit the battery.
The battery may need recharging if it has not been used for
a long period of time.
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.
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).
Radio Frequency (RF) Energy
Body-Worn Operation
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
watt to 0.2 watt 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.
To maintain compliance with FCC RF exposure guidelines, if
you wear a handset on your body, use a Sprint-supplied or
Sprint-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.
Important Safety Information
Sprint M240.book Page 109 Sunday, July 26, 2009 11:11 AM
For more information about RF exposure, visit the FCC Web
site at www.fcc.gov.
Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) for Wireless
Phones
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 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.
4A. Important Safety Information
109
Sprint M240.book Page 110 Sunday, July 26, 2009 11:11 AM
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 SPH-M240 are:
Cellular CDMA mode (Part 22):
Head: 0.867 W/kg; Body-worn: 0.894 W/kg
PCS mode (Part 24):
Head: 0.683 W/kg; Body-worn: 0.539 W/kg
