WARNING:
Using the wrong battery
charger could cause
damage to your phone
and void the warranty.
Charging the Battery
Your phone comes with a rechargeable battery. You should
charge the battery upon opening the package. Being aware of
your battery’s charge is important. If your battery level
becomes too low, your phone automatically shuts off and you
may lose information. For a quick check of your phone’s
battery level, glance at the battery charge indicator located on
the top display screen.

hours. To make sure the internal battery is charged, do not
disconnect the main battery from the phone for 24 hours.

area where roaming is
available (whether CDMA

When you’re roaming on other PCS CDMA networks, your call
quality will be similar to the quality you receive when making
calls while on the Sprint PCS Network. You may not be able to
access certain calling features, such as the Sprint PCS Wireless
Web; however, all of your calls are still private and secure.
Roaming on Analog Cellular Networks
When you roam on analog cellular networks, you will
experience the same quality provided by analog cellular
carriers today. Although some features, such as
Sprint PCS Wireless Web, may be unavailable, you can still
make and receive calls. You will experience a few differences
including:

Your phone filters e-mail based on information in their To,
From, and Subject fields, called a filter string. You create a
filter string by listing the words you want your phone to find
and separating them by either a comma or a space. Each word
in the filter string is joined by an implicit OR; your phone adds
the logical connectors like AND or OR.
Managing Mail
To create a more complex filter, you can define filter strings
for the To, From, and Subject fields. Your phone joins the filter
strings for these fields using an implicit AND, and adds the
logical connector for you.

Define to Ignore
or Receive
For example, you might want to receive only e-mail items
from John Smith ([email protected]) or Jack Jones
([email protected]) concerning the Apollo Project. You would
create the following filter strings:
In the To field: [email protected], [email protected]
In the Subject field: Apollo Project
M
Managing Mail
Your phone interprets this as, “Accept e-mail items about the
Apollo Project from John Smith or Jack Jones. Do not accept email items from other people. Do not accept e-mail items from
John or Jack about any other subject.”
13
When you define a string, your phone searches for any
instance of that sequence of characters. For example, if you
define a filter that retrieves only e-mail items with the string
“info,” appropriate matches would include “info,”
“rainforest” and “kinfolk.”

Web Clipping Applications
Web Clipping is a fast and easy way to retrieve information
from the Internet on your phone. A simple process of query
and response is used to send and retrieve information. Most of
the large graphics are removed to achieve a faster download
rate.
Just as an ordinary desktop browser gives you access to many
different websites, your phone gives you access to many
different web clipping sites. These sites are called web clipping
applications. They are created from third party developers, but
are used like a Palm OS® application such as Date Book. The
web clipping application is displayed as an icon in the
Application Launcher.
Web Clipping vs. Web Browsing
When you browse the internet with Netscape Navigator or
Microsoft Explorer, you are using a desktop machine capable
of displaying complex graphic images and text at a relatively
high speed. With your phone, that approach is not as effective.
The screen is smaller and the memory is far less than what is
needed to process all the images.
Web Clipping takes a new approach to getting information
from the Internet. Instead of downloading complex images, a
query and response technique is used.
The Clipping offers the following advantages:

Customizing the HotSync Operation
For each application, you can define a set of options that
determines how records are handled during the HotSync
operation. These options are called a “conduit.” By default, a
HotSync operation synchronizes all files between your phone
and Palm Desktop software. In general, you should leave the
settings to synchronize all files. The only reason to change
these settings is to overwrite data on either your phone or
Palm Desktop software, or to avoid synchronizing a particular
type of file.
In addition to the conduits for Date Book, Address Book, To Do
List, Memo Pad, and Expense, Palm Desktop software includes
System and Install conduits. The System conduit backs up the

IR HotSync Operations
Your phone is equipped with an infrared (IR) port that
supports the IrCOMM implementation of the standards for
infrared communication established by the Infrared Data
Association (IrDA). This means that not only can you beam
data to another Palm OS® handheld that is equipped with an
IR port, but you can also beam data to a cell phone and any
other device that supports the IrCOMM implementation of the
IrDA standards. Most importantly, you can use the IR port to
perform HotSync operations. This is especially useful if you
travel with an infrared-enabled laptop. You simply enable
infrared communication on your laptop and handheld and
follow the steps in “Performing an IR HotSync operation”
later in this section.
Preparing your computer for infrared communication
Before you can perform a HotSync operation using the IR port,
the desktop computer must have the following requirements:
䊳 The computer must support the IrCOMM implementation
of the IrDA standards.
䊳 The computer must have an enabled infrared port that is
built into the computer, or an enabled infrared device
attached to the computer.
Desktop computers are likely to require an infrared device
attached to a physical COM port. Laptop computers are likely
to have a built-in IR port, so no external device is necessary.
Your computer must also have an installed infrared driver.
Check your computer’s documentation to learn if the
computer supports infrared communication. If your desktop
computer uses Microsoft® Windows 98 or Windows 2000,
infrared communication is built into the operating system.

Getting the Most Out of Your Reception
Keeping Tabs on Signal Strength
The quality of each call you make or receive depends on the
signal strength in your area. Your phone informs you of the
current strength by displaying a number of bars next to the
signal strength icon. The more bars displayed, the stronger the
signal.
If you’re inside a building, being near a window may give you
better reception.
Understanding Power Save Feature
If your phone is unable to find a signal after 15 minutes of
searching, a powersave feature is automatically activated. If
your phone is on, it periodically rechecks service availability or
you can check yourself by pressing any key. When a signal is
found, your phone returns to Standby mode.
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
278
Section 24
Performance and Safety
Maintaining
Your Phone’s
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).

To maintain compliance with FCC RF exposure guidelines, if
you wear a phone on your body, use a Sprint PCS approved
carrying case, holster or other body-worn accessory. If you do

Specific Absorption Rate (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.
Pe
Performance and
Safety
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 that 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.
24
Sprint PCS
Wireless Web
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

standard of 1.6 W/kg are considered safe for use by the public.

Invoicing
Invoicing cycles are approximately 30 days in length.
Invoicing cycles and dates may change from time to time.
Except as otherwise provided in your Service Plan, monthly
recurring charges (MRCs) are invoiced one invoicing cycle in
advance. Airtime is invoiced retroactively to the first minute
based on your Service Plan for your total usage in your
invoicing cycle. Charges for Services are usually invoiced as
soon as possible after the charges accrue (unless you are
receiving Services under a Sprint PCS Prepaid Service Plan).
We may, however, invoice you for usage and charges
occurring before the invoicing cycle being invoiced, if they
were not previously invoiced. If you are invoiced for usage
incurred during a prior invoicing cycle, those minutes will be
applied to your Service Plan minutes for the current invoicing
cycle. However, if you change your Service Plan between the
time the usage was incurred and the beginning of the current
invoicing cycle, those minutes from the prior invoicing cycle
will be charged at the applicable per minute overage rate set
out in the Service Plan in effect at the time the usage was
incurred.

to change. We may mix deposits with our other funds. If
Services are terminated for any reason, we may, without notice
to you, apply your deposit toward payment of outstanding
charges and any excess is returned to you at your last known
address within 75 days after termination of Services. If the U.S.
Postal Service cannot deliver the money to you and returns it
to us, we will hold it for you for one year from the date of

receive. Charges for Prepaid Services are invoiced in oneminute increments and deducted from your prepaid account
balance. Partial minutes of use are rounded up to the next
highest minute. If you add additional options to your prepaid
account, the monthly charges for them will be deducted from
your prepaid account which could bring your account balance
to $0 or below. When you have used all of the money in your
prepaid account, Services are suspended until you add money
to your account. You may add money to your prepaid account
by any means we agree to accept (e.g. Sprint PCS Prepaid
Wireless Cards). If you do not have any money in your prepaid
account for 45 consecutive days, you will have to pay a
reconnection fee to restore Services. During this 0-45 day
period with a $0 balance, your daily or monthly service
charges (or both) will continue to accrue and you must pay
any accrued charges plus a reconnection fee before Services
are restored. If you do not have any money in your prepaid
account for 90 consecutive days, we close the account. If you
wish to restore Services in the future, you will be subject to
current Sprint PCS Prepaid Service Plan availability and the

fee. If you call us toll-free at 1-888-263-9695, we can provide
information about adding money to your prepaid account, the

Sprint PCS Prepaid Service Plans
(Daily Service Charge)
If your Sprint PCS Prepaid Service Plan has a Daily Service
Charge, it is deducted from your prepaid account once each
day, which could bring your account balance to $0 or below.
You can avoid disruption in Services by keeping a positive
balance in your account. Even if your account balance
reaches $0, the Daily Service Charge continues to accrue for 45
consecutive days, causing your account balance to become
negative. After 45 consecutive days with a $0 or negative
balance, we will charge you a reconnection fee in addition to
the accrued Daily Service Charge to restore Services.
Sprint PCS Prepaid Service Plans
(Monthly Service Charge)
If your Sprint PCS Prepaid Service Plan has a Monthly Service
Charge, it is deducted from your prepaid account on the first
day of each month. This could bring our account balance to
$0 or below. You can avoid disruption in Services by adding
enough money to your account before the end of each month
to cover the Monthly Service Charge and keep a positive
balance in your account.
Sprint PCS Prepaid Service Plans
(No Monthly Service Charge)
If your Sprint PCS Prepaid Service Plan does not have a
Monthly Service Charge and you have not added money to
your account for 60 consecutive days, your account balance is
forfeited. If you add money to your prepaid account within the
60 day period, your prior account balance and the money
added are carried forward for another 60 consecutive days.

Wireless Cards
Each Sprint PCS Prepaid Wireless Card has an expiration date
on it. If you purchase a Sprint PCS Prepaid Wireless Card and
have a Sprint PCS Prepaid Service Plan, you can only use the
card to add money to your prepaid account. The card must be
used to add money to your prepaid account before the card’s
expiration date. If you obtain a promotional Sprint PCS
Prepaid Wireless Card and do not have a Sprint PCS Prepaid
Service Plan, you can use the card to make prepaid phone
calls that will not show up on your monthly invoice. You will
not be able to use the card after the expiration date or 60
consecutive days after making your first call using the card
(whichever comes first).

Wireless Web Services
Prepaid
Wireless Cards
Wireless Web Services are part of the Services that can be
obtained through Sprint PCS. Wireless Web Services may not
be immediately available in some Sprint PCS affiliate markets.
Use of Wireless Web Services requires a wireless data
compatible phone or certain other equipment (or both) and is
subject to any memory, storage or other limitation in the
phone or other equipment. The Caller ID blocking feature is
not available when using Wireless Web Services. Your Number
is transmitted to any site you visit on the Internet. You are
charged for time spent connected to the Wireless Web,
including time spent browsing on the Internet and reviewing
or scrolling through Internet information on-line while still
connected to the Sprint PCS Network. Not all Internet sites can
be accessed and you may receive an error message if you
attempt to access a site that cannot be accessed through
Wireless Web Services. You are also charged for Wireless Web
connections to review your Sprint PCS account information.
Wireless Web Services currently are not available when you are
roaming off the Sprint PCS Network. Wireless Web Services are

not available to you if you are on a Sprint PCS Prepaid Service
Plan. If you receive Services on an Account Spending Limit
basis, you may be limited in the Wireless Web Services
available to you. Call Sprint PCS Customer Care or visit our
website at www.sprintpcs.com for availability and equipment
compatibility information. Specific additional information
about Wireless Web Services, including pricing, included
minutes and combining with other Service Plans, is available
in Sprint PCS’ standard sales collateral for Sprint PCS Wireless
Web Services or at www.sprintpcs.com. Sprint PCS is not a
publisher of third party content that can be accessed through
Wireless Web Services. Sprint PCS is not responsible for any
opinions, advice, statements, services or other information
that is provided by third parties and accessible through
Wireless Web Services. Sprint PCS does not guarantee the
accuracy, completeness or usefulness of information that is
obtained through the Wireless Web Services. You are
responsible for evaluating such content.
Taxes and Other Regulatory Related Charges
We invoice you for taxes, regulatory related obligations and
other charges levied by federal, state or local authorities, or
foreign government on Services, or mandated to be paid in
proportion to receipts from telecommunications services
provided, or on sales of equipment (except for taxes based on
our net income), if we pay these taxes or other regulatory
related charges. Taxes, regulatory related charges and charges
not directly paid by us are not invoiced to you, but payment to
the taxing or levying authority of any applicable taxes,
regulatory related charges and charges due from you are your
responsibility. If you claim any tax exemption, you must
provide us with a valid tax-exempt document. Any tax
exemption applies only from the date we receive a valid taxexempt document.

Roaming
Roaming
Calls made outside of your Home Service Area and outside of
the Sprint PCS Network are “roaming” calls. Your
Sprint PCS phone is specifically designed and engineered to
work only on the Sprint PCS Network. It works on other CDMA
PCS providers’ systems only when a roaming agreement is in
place between Sprint PCS and the other providers. If your
Sprint PCS Phone is a dual-mode phone, it works on both a
CDMA PCS provider’s system (in addition to the Sprint PCS
Network) and a wireless analog telecommunications
provider’s system only when roaming agreements are in place
between Sprint PCS and the other providers. If we do not have
a roaming agreement in place, you may be able to place
roaming calls “manually” by using a valid credit card.
Certain features are not available when roaming. Roaming
rates may be different from and higher than the rates you pay
for calls within your Sprint PCS Home Service Area and on the
Sprint PCS Network. Roaming charges are invoiced according
to the practices of the roaming service provider. When
roaming, you are subject to the limitation of liability
provisions and other applicable rules imposed by the roaming
service provider on its own subscribers or on roamers.

We may give credit for a continuous interruption of Services
for more than 24 hours on a case-by-case basis. Interruptions
caused by your negligent or willful actions, or by failure of
equipment or service not provided by us, or by causes beyond
our reasonable control, do not qualify for credit. We may
provide you with an airtime credit of one minute for a call that
is disconnected because of transmission limitations caused by
atmospheric, geographic or topographic conditions and that
you redial within one minute of disconnection. You must

Phones and Other Equipment
Phones and other equipment may be purchased and returned
as provided in the purchase documents. We are not the
manufacturer of the phones or other equipment and the only

warranties extended by the manufacturers. We have no
liability in connection with the phones and other equipment
or for the manufacturers’ acts or omissions, or both.
Lost or Stolen Equipment
If your phone or other equipment is lost or stolen, you must
notify us by calling Sprint PCS Customer Care. You are
responsible for all charges for Services provided to the Number
for the lost or stolen equipment before you notify us of the loss
or theft. We will deactivate Services to the Number upon
notification to us of any loss or theft. You may be required to
provide evidence of the loss or theft (e.g., a police report or
affidavit). If the equipment is later found, we may require that
you exchange it for another phone or other equipment before
we reactivate Services (if we do reactivate Services), as well as
require you to pay a reactivation fee. We will deactivate
Services to any Number without prior notice to you if we
suspect any unlawful or fraudulent use of the Number. You
agree to reasonably cooperate with us in investigating
suspected unlawful or fraudulent use.
Caller ID
If you do not want people you call to get the Number assigned
to your phone, you must call Sprint PCS Customer Care for
