Visual Voicemail
Visual Voicemail gives you a quick and easy way to access your voicemail. Now you can find
exactly the message you are looking for without having to listen to every voicemail message first.
This new feature periodically goes out to your voicemail, and gathers the caller information from
all of the current voicemails. It then populates a list with the caller name and number, along with
the length of time and priority level of the voicemail message.
Set Up Visual Voicemail
Setting up Visual Voicemail follows many of the same procedures as setting up traditional
voicemail. You should set up your voicemail and personal greeting as soon as your phone is
activated. Your phone automatically transfers all unanswered calls to your voicemail, even if
your phone is in use or turned off.

TTY Mode
A TTY (teletypewriter, also known as a TDD or Text Telephone) is a telecommunications device
that allows people who are deaf, hard of hearing, or who have speech or language disabilities,
to communicate by telephone.
Your phone is compatible with select TTY devices. Please check with the manufacturer of your
TTY device to ensure that it supports digital wireless transmission. Your phone and TTY device
will connect using a special cable that plugs into your phone’s headset jack. If this cable was not
provided with your TTY device, contact your TTY device manufacturer to purchase the
connector cable.
To turn TTY Mode on or off:

Warning: 9-1-1 Emergency Calling
It is recommended that TTY users make emergency calls by other means, including
Telecommunications Relay Services (TRS), analog cellular, and landline communications.
Wireless TTY calls to 9-1-1 may be corrupted when received by public safety answering points
(PSAPs), rendering some communications unintelligible. The problem encountered appears
related to TTY equipment or software used by PSAPs. This matter has been brought to the
attention of the FCC, and the wireless industry and the PSAP community are currently working
to resolve this.

Before Making Your First Direct Connect Call
To enable Direct Connect on your phone, you must first enable Direct Connect services on your
Sprint account. Sign in to sprint.com/mysprint or call Sprint Customer Service at 1-888-2114727 for more information.
Important: When the Direct Connect feature is active, your phone’s data services are enabled.

2. On the My Account tab, click the Manage this device dropdown menu and select
Change my services.
3. Under Push-to-Talk, select Unlimited Direct Connect and Group Connect and Sprint
Service.
Direct Connect Numbers
Sprint Direct Connect is compatible with two different types of Direct Connect numbers.
●
Separate numbers – Some Direct Connect numbers are a unique number (not a
standard wireless phone number). This type is made up of three sets of digits separated
by asterisks (for example, 444*5555*111). When calling a person or storing a contact
with this type of number, be sure to include the asterisks in the number. If you are saving
the number in your Contacts, choose DC ONLY for the phone type.
●
A single number – Some Direct Connect numbers use the same numbers as the
wireless number for the phone (for example, 555-555-1234). If the person you are calling
has a single number for both voice calls and for Direct Connect, use that ten-digit phone
number to make Direct Connect calls. You do not need to add any asterisks (*) to the
number. If you are saving this number in your Contacts, choose other than DC ONLY for
the phone type.
Your Direct Connect Number
Your Direct Connect number is the same as your wireless phone number (for example, 555555-1234). Sprint Direct Connect is compatible with this type of Direct Connect number as well
as Direct Connect-specific numbers separated by asterisks (for example, 444*5555*111).
Tip: One way to easily ensure that your contacts have your correct number is to call them so
that they can save your number from their Call logs. Ask them for their contact information.
Remember you will need all digits of the number to make a successful call. Also, if they have a
separate number for Direct Connect, you will need to enter asterisks (*) between sets of
numbers.

Group Connect Call Information
Your phone’s display may show some useful information during a Group Connect call.
Phone Calls
58
During a Group Connect call, the following information may appear on your screen:
●
The name of the group.
●
The name or Direct Connect number of the person speaking.
●
The number of group members who are connected to the call out of the number invited
(for example, 4 out of 6).
TeamDC
TeamDC lets Direct Connect users make group calls to up to 200 other users nationwide. With
TeamDC, any Direct Connect or Sprint user can create a TeamDC group online, which the
system then automatically pushes to all the group members’ phones. Once a user creates and
distributes a TeamDC group, any member of the group can make a TeamDC call to the entire
group. If the user who created the group makes any changes to the group, the system
automatically sends updates to the members’ phones.
Set Up a TeamDC Group
Any Direct Connect subscriber on a Sprint phone can create TeamDC groups online. Only the
TeamDC group creator or an account administrator may modify a group member list once he or
she has created it.
1. Sign on to your account at sprint.com/mysprint.
2. From your account summary page, click My services and device > Contacts > Launch
Mobile Sync > My Contacts > Add group > TeamDC.
3. Add TeamDC members directly (using Direct Connect numbers) or select individual
members or groups from your Contacts list.
4. (Optional) Click Set Talker Priority to select a Talker Priority for each group member
(default is Medium).

You can assign a priority of Low, Medium, or High to each member.

During a TeamDC call, members with a higher Talker Priority can “break in” when
members with a lower priority are speaking.
Note: Talker Priority: The optional TeamDC “Talker Priority” feature lets you define a priority
level (Low, Medium, or High) for each member of a TeamDC group. When a TeamDC call is
active, members with a higher priority may interrupt a member with a lower priority while that
member is speaking. By default, the system sets all members of a TeamDC group to a “Medium”
priority level.
5. Click Save to save the TeamDC group and distribute it to the other group members.

Web and Data
Your phone’s data capabilities let you wirelessly access the Internet or your corporate network
through a variety of connections, including Wi-Fi, 4G LTE, 3G, and Virtual Private Networks
(VPN).
The following topics address your phone’s data connections and the built-in Web browser.
Additional data-related features can be found in Accounts and Messaging, Apps and
Entertainment, and Tools and Calendar.
Wi-Fi
Wi-Fi provides wireless Internet access over distances of up to 300 feet. To use your phone’s
Wi-Fi, you need access to a wireless access point or “hotspot.”
The availability and range of the Wi-Fi signal depends on a number of factors, including
infrastructure and other objects through which the signal passes.
Turn Wi-Fi On and Connect to a Wireless Network
Use the Wireless & networks setting menu to enable your phone’s Wi-Fi radio and connect to an
available Wi-Fi network.

information or choose a security certificate.
When your phone is connected to a wireless network, the Wi-Fi icon (
) appears in the status
bar and tells you the approximate signal strength. (The above icon indicates maximum signal
strength.)
If Network notification in Advanced Wi-Fi settings is enabled, this icon (
) appears in the
status bar whenever the phone detects an available open wireless network within range.
Web and Data

Note: The next time your phone connects to a previously accessed secured wireless network,
you will not be prompted to enter the password again, unless you reset your phone to its factory
default settings or you instruct the phone to forget the network.
Note: Wi-Fi networks are self-discoverable, which means no additional steps are required for
your phone to connect to a Wi-Fi network. It may be necessary to provide a user name and
password for certain closed wireless networks.

Connections Optimizer
The Connections Optimizer is a tool that automatically selects the best mobile network for your
phone, including "remembered" Wi-Fi networks.
About Connections Optimizer
The Connections Optimizer helps you manage and enhance your data experience by finding
and connecting to "remembered" Wi-Fi networks on your phone. Remembered Wi-Fi networks
are networks with which you have previously chosen to connect. Active Wi-Fi connections may
offer improved performance and generally improve battery life while allowing you to talk on the
phone and use data at the same time.
Web and Data
110
The Connections Optimizer works by searching for available "remembered" Wi-Fi networks. If
you do not leave your Wi-Fi antenna on all the time, you will only notice the Connections
Optimizer operating at certain times of the day in a small number of locations on the network.
Your Wi-Fi antenna will conserve battery by scanning for connections periodically (not
continuously), and if no connection is achieved, the antennas will be turned off. You may also
manually turn the antennas off during the scan period.
To facilitate quality assurance and enable feature enhancements, information is collected about
your battery levels, Wi-Fi and network connections and usage. No personal information is
collected.
