Important:
Voicemail Password – Sprint strongly recommends that you create a password
when setting up your voicemail to protect against unauthorized access. Without a
password, anyone who has access to your phone is able to access your
voicemail messages.
Voicemail Notification
There are a couple of different ways your phone alerts you to a new voicemail message.
●
By sounding the assigned notification sound.
●
By vibrating the phone when the vibrate setting is on.
●
By displaying
within the Notifications area of the Status bar when new unheard
voicemail message(s) is received. The figure is the number of new messages. This icon
means you have ten unheard new messages.
Note: When you are roaming off the Nationwide Sprint Network, you may not receive
notification of new voicemail messages. Sprint recommends that you periodically check
your voicemail by dialing 1 + area code + your wireless phone number. When your
voicemail answers, touch
and enter your password. Roaming rates apply when you
access voicemail while roaming off the Nationwide Sprint Network.
Note: Your phone accepts messages even when it is turned off. However, your phone notifies
you of new messages only when it is turned on and you are in a Sprint service area.

voicemail or Visual Voicemail) or from any other touch-tone phone.

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.
When establishing your Sprint service, please call Sprint Customer Service using the state
Telecommunications Relay Service (TRS) by first dialing
. Then provide the
state TRS with this number: 866-727-4889.
To turn TTY Mode on or off:
1. Touch Home

Warning:
Phone Calls
911 Emergency Calling
Sprint recommends that TTY users make emergency calls by other means,
including Telecommunications Relay Services (TRS), analog cellular, and
landline communications. Wireless TTY calls to 911 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.

Sprint Connections Optimizer
The Sprint Connections Optimizer is a tool that automatically selects the best mobile network for
your phone, including "remembered" Wi-Fi networks.
About Sprint Connections Optimizer
The Sprint 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
99
The Sprint 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 Sprint
Connections Optimizer operating at certain times of the day in a small number of locations on
the Sprint 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 Sprint Network connections and usage. No personal information is
collected.
