standby time (15 hours in analog).
Approximately five minutes before the battery charge level gets too low to
operate the phone, the battery sensor will let you know by blinking an
empty battery icon (
), sounding an audible alert and displaying a
warning message. If you continue to operate the phone without
charging, the phone will turn off automatically (after a three to five
minute delay). If this happens, your call will end.
22
Section 2

23
Charging the Battery
Your Sprint PCS Phone comes with a rechargeable battery. You should
charge the battery as soon as possible so you can begin using your phone.
Keeping track of your battery’s charge is important. 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 gets too low, the battery icon (
) blinks and the phone sounds
a warning tone.
Always use a Sprint PCS-approved Desktop Charger, Travel Charger or
Vehicle Power Adapter to charge your battery.
Warning! Using the wrong battery charger could cause damage to your
phone and void the warranty.
Using the Single-Slot Desktop Charger
To use the single-slot desktop charger provided with your phone:
1. Plug the dual-slot desktop charger’s power cord into a wall outlet.
2. Insert the phone (with the battery installed) into the slot of the
charger.
The LED on the front of the dual-slot desktop charger indicates the
following:
䊳
A red light indicates the battery is charging.
䊳
A green light indicates the battery is at least 90 percent charged.
䊳
A yellow light indicates that the battery is operating at a temperature
that is too high or too low, or that there is a poor connection. Make
sure the phone is resting in the charger slot.
It generally takes about four hours to fully recharge a completely
discharged battery. With the Sprint PCS-approved LiIon battery, it is
practical to recharge the battery before it becomes completely discharged.
To get the quickest charge for any battery:
Turn the phone off.
䊳
Put the phone with the battery attached, into the front slot of the
charger.

oaming is the ability to make or receive calls while you’re off the
Sprint PCS Nationwide Network. Your new dual-band Sprint PCS
PhoneTM works anywhere on the Sprint PCS Nationwide Network and allows
you to roam on analog and digital networks virtually anywhere in the U.S.
where compatible wireless service is available.
This section explains how roaming works as well as special features that let
you manage your roaming experience.

Understanding How Roaming Works
Recognizing Icons on the Display Screen
Your phone’s display screen always lets you know when you’re off the
Sprint PCS Network and whether your phone is operating in analog or
digital mode. The following chart indicates what you’ll see depending on
where you’re using your phone.

Indicator

Indicator

Other Digital Networks
Analog Networks
Tip: Remember, when you’re using your phone off the Sprint PCS Network,
always dial numbers using 11 digits (1 + area code + number.)
Note: You will pay a higher per-minute rate for roaming calls.
Roaming on Other Digital Networks
When you’re roaming on other digital networks, your call quality and
security 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 Sprint PCS Wireless Web.
Roaming on Analog Networks
When you roam on analog networks, you will experience a similar
quality provided by other analog carriers today. Although some calling
features, such as Sprint PCS Wireless Web, may be unavailable, you can
still make and receive calls. You will experience a few differences
including:
䊳
You are more likely to experience static, cross-talk, fade-out and
dropped calls.
28
Section 3
Understanding Roaming
䊳
䊳
䊳
Some calling features which are standard on the Sprint PCS Network,
such as Call Waiting, Sprint PCS Wireless Web and direct
international dialing, are unavailable.
There are security and privacy risks (eavesdropping and cloning)
that exist with conventional analog services today.
Your battery needs recharging sooner when you use your phone for
analog roaming.
Tip: If you’re on a call when you leave the Sprint PCS Network and enter
an area where roaming is available (whether digital or analog), your call is
dropped. If your call is dropped in an area where you think Sprint PCS
Service is available, turn your phone off and on again to reconnect to the
Sprint PCS Nationwide Network.

How It Works
1. Once you’ve signed up for Sprint PCS Voice Command and created
your address book, all you do is press
. You’ll hear a tone
followed by the prompt “Ready.”
2. After the “Ready” prompt, simply say, in a natural voice, the name of
the person or the number you’d like to call. For example, you can
say, “Call Jane at work,” “Call John on his wireless phone,” “Call
555-1234” or “Look up Bob.”
3. The number will automatically be dialed. Keep in mind that
Sprint PCS Voice Command recognizes not only your voice, but any
voice, so others can experience the same convenience if they use your
phone.

Speak clearly and naturally.
Avoid very long or very short names. Names with two to five syllables
are recommended.
If a voice dial entry does not properly connect, you may need to
record the name and number again.
Note: Record Voice Dial tags in a quiet environment and without the aid of
an accessory (for example, a headset or hands-free car kit).

you want to program.

say the name again.
4. Respond to the prompt by repeating the name after the beep exactly
as you did the first time. The phone stores the name as a second
sample and then requests the phone number.
5. Enter the phone number on the keypad.

The Sprint PCS Wireless Web
With the Sprint PCS Wireless Web and your wireless Internet-ready
phone, you have access to many features via the wireless Internet:
䊳
The Sprint PCS Wireless Web Browser allows you to view
specially-designed versions of popular web sites.
䊳
Sprint PCS Wireless Web Mail lets you send and receive email
quickly and easily.
䊳
The AOL Instant Messenger Service lets you keep in touch with
family and friends via two-way instant messaging.
䊳
With Sprint PCS Wireless Web Short Mail, you can use a person’s
Sprint PCS Phone Number to send instant text messages to their
Internet-ready Sprint PCS Phone – and they can send messages to you.
䊳
Sprint PCS Wireless Web Updates let you receive daily
information updates, including weather, stock quotes and sports
scores.
䊳
The Sprint PCS Wireless Web Connection lets you connect to the
Internet or your company's network with a laptop PC or handheld
computing device and a Sprint PCS Wireless Web™ Connection Kit.
Note: Sprint PCS Wireless Web service will not work when roaming off the
Sprint PCS Nationwide Network and may not be available in select affiliate
areas.
The Sprint PCS Wireless Web Browser
Your phone comes equipped with a Browser, which allows you to access
up-to-the minute information through the Sprint PCS Wireless Web.
You can view specially-designed versions of popular Internet sites,
including Yahoo!®, Amazon.com®, The Weather Channel® and more.
Browsing the Sprint PCS Wireless Web using your phone is different than
using a home computer because sites display specialized text and reduce
their graphics.
The Browser connects to the Internet by placing a call. Note that
appears on the display whenever a call is in progress, just as with a
regular voice call. Service charges vary depending on your service option.

ready to start using the Sprint PCS Wireless Web.
Following the security setup, you'll see the Sprint PCS Wireless Web
Home Page. This is the main page for the Browser and it gives you access
to all the sites in the Sprint PCS Wireless Web. The next time you use the
Browser, you may not see the home page at first because the Browser will
display the page you were viewing when you last exited the Browser.

Note: The Sprint PCS Wireless Web Home Page is subject to change.
You may notice that sometimes the Browser will launch without placing
a call. This is because the phone stores recently viewed pages in its
memory cache. The Browser will connect automatically when you access
a page that's not stored in the cache. This reduces the wireless web usage
times.
If the phone has been inactive for a while and a new wireless Internet site
has not been requested, the Browser will automatically disconnect. The
Browser will remain active – only the connection will end. The Browser
will automatically reconnect when you go to a wireless Internet site that's
not stored in the phone's memory cache. For this reason, you may find
that you are billed for several network connections within a single
session. This is normal and is designed to minimize airtime charges.
When launching the Browser, you may need to take an extra step or see a
reminder that Browser calls will be charged. (See “Web Guard” below for
more information.)
Web Guard
The Web Guard requires you to take an extra step each time you launch
or exit the Browser. To change the Web Guard setting:

Setting Up a Sprint PCS Wireless Web Connection
Getting Started
Your wireless Internet-ready Sprint PCS Phone allows you to connect to a
laptop PC, hand-held or palm-sized computing device to send and
receive e-mail, access the Internet or your company’s network and more,
without searching for a wall-mounted telephone jack. In just three steps,
you can use your connectivity:

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 Power Save
feature is automatically activated. If your phone is on, it periodically rechecks service
availability or you can check yourself by pressing any key. Anytime the Power Save
feature is activated, a message displays on the screen. 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 Sprint PCS 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).
Maintaining Your Phone’s Peak Performance
There are several simple guidelines to operating your phone properly and
maintaining safe, satisfactory service.
䊳
Hold the phone with the antenna up, fully-extended and over your shoulder.
䊳
Try not to ever hold, bend or twist the phone antenna.
䊳
Don’t use the phone if the antenna is damaged.
䊳
Speak directly into the mouthpiece.
132
Section 20
Knowing Performance and Safety Guidelines
䊳
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. If it’s
inoperable, return it to a Sprint PCS Center or call Sprint PCS Customer Care for
service.
Note: For the best care of your phone, only Sprint PCS authorized personnel should
service your phone and accessories. Faulty service may void the warranty.
Maintaining Safe Use of and Access to Your Phone
FAILURE TO FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS OUTLINED MAY LEAD TO SERIOUS
PERSONAL INJURY AND POSSIBLE PROPERTY DAMAGE
Using Your Phone While Driving
Talking on the 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.
When using your phone in the car:
䊳
Get to know your phone and its features, such as speed dial and redial.

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.
20
Section 20
Knowing Performance and Safety Guidelines
133
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 and entertainment systems in motor vehicles. Check with the
manufacturer or its 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.
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 off your phone when in a blasting
area or in other areas with signs indicating that two-way radios should be turned off.
Construction crews often use remote-control RF devices to set off explosives.
Turn off your phone when you’re in any area that has a potentially explosive
atmosphere. Although it’s rare, your phone or its accessories could generate sparks.
Sparks could cause an explosion or a fire resulting in bodily injury or even death.
These areas are often, but not always, clearly marked. They include:
䊳
Fueling areas such as gas stations
䊳
Below deck on boats
䊳
Fuel or chemical transfer or storage facilities
䊳
Areas where the air contains chemicals or particles such as grain, dust or metal
powders
䊳
Any other area where you would normally be advised to turn off your vehicle
engine
Note: Never transport or store flammable gas, liquid or explosives in the compartment of
your vehicle that contains your phone or accessories.
Restricting Children’s Access to Your Phone
Your Sprint PCS Phone is not a toy. Children should not be allowed to play with it
because they could hurt themselves and others, damage the phone or make calls that
increase your phone bill.

Caring for the Battery
Protecting Your Battery
The guidelines listed below help you get the most out of your battery’s performance.
Use only Sprint PCS-approved batteries and desktop chargers. These chargers are
designed to maximize battery life. Using other batteries or chargers voids your
warranty and may cause damage.
䊳
In order to avoid damage, charge the battery only in temperatures that range
from 32º F to 113º F (0º C to 45º C).
䊳
Don’t use the battery charger in direct sunlight or in high humidity areas, such
as the bathroom.
䊳
Never dispose of the battery by incineration.
䊳
Keep the metal contacts on top of the battery clean.
䊳

Acknowledging Special Precautions and the FCC Notice
FCC Notice
The phone may cause TV or radio interference if used in close proximity to receiving
equipment. The FCC can require you to stop using the phone if such interference
cannot be eliminated.
Vehicles using liquefied petroleum gas (such as propane or butane) must comply
with the National Fire Protection Standard (NFPA-58). For a copy of this standard,
contact the National Fire Protection Association, One Batterymarch Park, Quincy, MA
02269, Attn: Publication Sales Division.
Cautions
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. Only use approved batteries, antennas and chargers. The use of any
unauthorized accessories may be dangerous and voids the phone warranty if said
accessories cause damage or a defect to the phone.
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.
Body-Worn Operation
To maintain compliance with FCC RF exposure guidelines, if you wear a handset on
your body, use the Sprint PCS supplied or approved carrying case, holster or other
body-worn accessory. If you do not use a body-worn accessory, ensure the antenna is
at least one inch (2.5 centimeters) from your body when transmitting. Use of nonSprint PCS approved accessories may violate FCC RF exposure guidelines.
For more information about RF exposure, please visit the FCC website at www.fcc.gov.
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.
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.
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.
FCC Radio Frequency Emission
This phone meets the FCC Radio Frequency Emission Guidelines. FCC ID number:

Agreement
Your agreement (“Agreement”) with Sprint Spectrum L.P. and any of its affiliates
doing business as Sprint PCS providing Sprint Personal Communications Services
(“Services”) to you is made up of these Terms and Conditions of Service (“Terms”)
and the Service Plan that we agree to provide you. Your “Service Plan” is described in
our marketing materials, and includes the rates and features we set for that Service
Plan. We use the words “we,” “us,” “our” or “Sprint PCS” to refer to Sprint Spectrum
L.P. and its affiliates doing business as Sprint PCS in these Terms. When you activate
Services or attempt to use our Services (including, without limitation, attempting to
place a call on the Sprint PCS Network or off the Sprint PCS Network when roaming,
including “911” or similar calls), you accept the Agreement.
Provision of Service
Your purchase of Sprint PCS phones or other equipment does not mean that we must
provide Services to you. We may decide not to provide Services to you for any lawful
reason. We may request that you provide us with any information we reasonably
require to determine whether you qualify for Services. Services in some areas are
managed and provided under contract with Sprint PCS by independent affiliates with
access to the Sprint PCS Network. Some Services may not be available or may operate
differently in certain affiliate markets.
Credit Verification
You must have and keep satisfactory credit to receive and continue to receive Services.
We will verify your credit before agreeing to provide Services to you and we may verify
your credit at any time while we provide Services to you. Credit verification may
include a review of credit reports that we receive from commercially available credit
bureaus. We may require a guarantee of payment by an individual or entity approved
by us. If at any time we determine, in our sole discretion, that payment for Services
may not be made when due, we may suspend Services to your phone and require that
you provide payment on account or a guarantee of payment before we resume
Services to your phone.
Changes to Agreement
We may change this Agreement at any time (but see Service Plan). Any changes to the
Terms are effective when we publish the revised terms. If you use our Services or make
any payment to us on or after the effective date of the changes, you accept the
changes. If you do not accept the changes, you may terminate Services (but see

Service Plan
You may be eligible for a fixed length Service Plan (“Term Service Plan”) or for a
month-to-month Service Plan (“Non-Term Service Plan”). We determine the Service
Plan for which you qualify. We may offer non-identical Service Plans to different
individuals or entities. Services and coverage under some Service Plans may be more
limited than available under other Service Plans. Your Service Plan sets out the
charges for Services and is your Service Plan until that Service Plan is changed, you
switch to a different Service Plan, or your Services terminate. Your Service Plan may
require that you make a deposit, prepayment, or a series of deposits or prepayments,
or be subject to an account spending limit, before Services are activated or
maintained.
Warranty/Terms
and Conditions
Termination and Changing Service Plans). For purposes of the Agreement, “use”
includes keeping the right to access the Sprint PCS Network by not terminating
Services. You may not modify the Agreement except for your Service Plan (see
Termination and Changing Service Plans).
Changing Service Plans
If you are on a Non-Term Service Plan, you may change to a different Service Plan
for which you qualify. Any change is effective at the start of your next full invoicing
cycle unless otherwise specified by us at the time that you place your change order. If
you change or add a different Service Plan or service feature and the change is
effective prior to the start of your next full invoicing cycle, you will be invoiced a
prorated amount. We may require a service charge for implementing any change
directed by you as well as the Service Plan or optional service features you select. If
you are on a Term Service Plan, your ability to change to another Service Plan may
be limited and we may require you to pay a termination fee as set out in your Service
Plan.
Use of Services and Equipment; Availability
You must be at least 18 years old to subscribe to our Services. We may require you to
provide proof of your age and identity. If you are under 18 years old you may be
eligible for certain Services that have Account Spending Limits if a person 18 years or
older is also named as a subscriber on the Account. Services and equipment may not
be used for any unlawful, fraudulent or abusive purpose. By requesting Services, you
agree that you will not use Services and equipment in any unlawful, fraudulent or
abusive manner. You may not resell or lease Services or equipment to anyone.
Services are available within the operating range of the Sprint PCS Network. Coverage
and quality of Services may be affected by conditions within or beyond our control,
including atmospheric, geographic, or topographic conditions. We do not guarantee
that there will be no interruptions or delays in Services. Your Sprint PCS Phone™
will not accept the services of any wireless provider other than Sprint PCS (but see
Roaming).
Number
We assign a phone number (“Number”) to the phone or other equipment used by
you on the Sprint PCS Network. We may change the Number without compensation
by giving you prior notice. You do not own the Number. You may not modify the
Number we program into any phone or other equipment.
Section 21
Terms and Conditions & Warranty Information

Phone Activation Fee
You may be required to pay a non-refundable phone activation fee when you activate
a new Number, have us switch a Number to a different phone, we activate a different
phone on your existing account or your Service Plan says so. Details on any
applicable phone activation fee are set out in your Service Plan or can be obtained by
calling Sprint PCS Customer Care.
Charges
For most forms of wireless Service, your usage will be charged from the time you first
initiate contact between your phone or other wireless device and the network until the
network connection is broken, whether or not you are successful in connecting with
the service with which you seek to connect, even if the connection is later broken or
dropped. An exception is that you are not charged for voice calls that are not
completed. You are charged for completed calls to your Number from the time shortly
before the phone starts ringing until the call is terminated by either party. You will be
charged peak rates for the entire duration of calls initiated during the peak time
periods applicable to your Service. You will be charged off-peak rates for the entire
duration of calls initiated during the off-peak time periods applicable to your Service.
In addition to these usage charges, you may be charged for recurring monthly service
charges, applicable local and long-distance toll charges, other usage charges,
connection fees, roaming charges, directory assistance, call completion charges,
optional features you select at an extra cost, and taxes and other regulatory related
charges. Charges for most Services are incurred in one-minute increments, with
partial minutes of use rounded up to the next highest minute. You must pay, by each
invoice due date, all charges for Services provided to the Number for each phone or
other equipment that our records show you activated, no matter who actually uses or
has possession of the phone or other equipment at the time Services are provided.
Voice Command
Sprint PCS Voice CommandSM is an optional service that allows you to place calls by
using speech recognition technology. Calls to 911 or similar emergency numbers
cannot be placed through the Voice Command feature. Airtime and applicable long
distance charges for a call completed from your Number using the Voice Command
feature begin when you press or activate the TALK or similar keys and end when your
call is terminated by hitting the END key or by returning to the Voice Command
platform. If you initiate and complete another call without leaving the Voice
Command platform, a separate charge for that call will begin from the time the
previous call was terminated. Airtime and applicable long distance charges will be
applied to the entire length of a completed call initiated from Voice Command. Using
Directory Assistance to input names into your Voice Command address book will
incur additional charges. Details on charges for the Voice Command feature can be
found in the marketing materials for this feature, by visiting www.sprintpcs.com or by
calling Sprint PCS Customer Care.
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.
Charges for Services are usually invoiced as soon as possible after the charges accrue.
We may, however, invoice you for usage and charges occurring before the invoicing
142

Payment
If you have authorized payment for Services or equipment by credit card or by
debiting a bank account, no additional notice or consent is required before we invoice
the credit card or debit the bank account for all amounts due to us or billed by us on
behalf of a third party. You must promptly notify us of any change in your invoicing
address or of the credit card or bank account used for payment. We reserve the right to
require payment by money order, cashier’s check or other secured form of payment.
If we take action to receive payment beyond invoicing you for charges for Services or
equipment, you must pay our costs and expenses of collection, including attorneys’
fees and expenses, the fees of any collection agency and court costs. If we act as an
invoicing agent for a third-party service provider, payments received are first applied
to amounts due and owing to us and any remaining amounts are applied to sums
due and owing to the third-party service provider. We may charge an additional fee
for any check or other negotiable instrument endorsed by you and returned unpaid
by a financial institution for any reason. You may be charged fees for certain methods
of payment.
Warranty/Terms
and Conditions
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 rate per minute for usage over included minutes provided in the Service Plan in
effect at the time the usage was incurred.
Late Payment Charges
Payment is past due if we do not receive it by the due date shown on your invoice. Any
payment for Services and equipment not made when due accrues late charges until
paid at the rate of 1.5% per month or at the highest rate allowed by law. Late charges
are prorated daily for each day that payment is past due, but are not compounded
monthly. Acceptance of late or partial payments (even if marked “paid in full”) does
not waive our right to collect all amounts that you owe us.
Disputed Charges
You must raise any dispute that you have about any charges invoiced to you within
15 days of the date of the invoice or you have accepted the invoice. You may notify us
of any dispute by notifying Sprint PCS Customer Care. Calls to our sales or general
business offices are not notice of a dispute. If disputed invoice procedures are
described on the invoice, you must follow them.
Termination. Non-Term Service Plan.
If you are on a Non-Term Service Plan you may terminate Services at any time by
giving us notice. Subject to the terms of this Agreement, we may terminate Services at
any time, with or without notice. We may deactivate any Number before you receive
notice of termination without liability to you. Termination by either of us may be
with or without cause.
Termination. Term Service Plan.
If you are on a Term Service Plan (1) your ability to terminate Services before the end
of the term is limited, (2) your ability to change to another Service Plan before the
Section 21
Terms and Conditions & Warranty Information
143
end of the term may be limited, and may result in a termination or activation fee, (3)
you may be required to pay a termination fee, (4) we may not terminate Services
without cause before the end of the term and (5) if we terminate Services for cause
before the end of the term, you may be required to pay a termination fee. No
termination fee is charged if you terminate a Term Service Plan within 14 days of
activation of your Sprint PCS Phone. During the term we must give each other notice
to terminate Services. At and after the expiration of the term, you may terminate
Services at any time by giving us notice and we may, subject to this Agreement,
terminate Services at any time, with or without notice.
Termination. General.
Regardless of whether you have a Non-Term or a Term Service Plan, we may
terminate or suspend Services to you without liability (1) if you breach any provision
of this Agreement (including if you fail to pay any charges for Services), or (2) if you
fail to pay any charges due us for equipment or otherwise. If you promptly cure the
breach, we may, but are not obligated to, reactivate Services to you. You must pay all
charges for (a) Services provided before termination of a Number and (b) equipment,
regardless of who terminates Services. If Services are terminated before the end of
your current invoicing cycle, (i) the monthly recurring charge is not prorated to the
date of termination, and (ii) you will not receive a credit or refund for any unused
minutes in your Service Plan.
Account Spending Limit
If we agree to provide Services to you on an Account Spending Limit basis, we will tell
you your Account Spending Limit before we start Services to your Number, or as
reasonably practicable after the limit is imposed. If we require a deposit for you to
establish or keep Services on an Account Spending Limit basis, we will hold the
deposit as partial guarantee of payment for Services (see Deposits). Charges for
Services accrue against your Account Spending Limit as they are incurred. We may
charge an initial ASL start up fee. We may charge a monthly ASL service fee, in
addition to your recurring monthly service charge. We may suspend Services to your
Number without prior notice to you when your account balance reaches your Account
Spending Limit. Services are restored when you have paid any past due balance and
pay a specified minimum amount to reduce your account balance below your
Account Spending Limit. We may change this minimum amount at any time upon
notice to you. You may pay any past due balance and the minimum amount by any
method authorized by Sprint PCS. Call Sprint PCS Customer Care for information
about authorized methods of making these payments. We may charge you a fee for
calls that involve our live customer care services. If we provide Services to you on an
Account Spending Limit basis, Services and coverage may be limited in certain ways.
You must pay all charges for Services even if they exceed the amount of your Account
Spending Limit.
Deposits
If we require a deposit for you to establish or keep Services, we will hold the deposit as
partial guarantee of payment for Services. We may change the deposit amount at any
time to reflect revised estimated monthly charges based upon your usage. A deposit
may not be used to pay any invoice (unless it is used to pay a final invoice) or delay
payment. The deposit amount, the length of time we hold the deposit and changes to
the deposit amount are determined based on your credit and payment history. The
rate of interest on the deposit is subject to change. We may mix deposits with our

Wireless Web and Voice Portal Services
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. For data calls
(including Wireless Web and Voice Portal calls) that are attempted, but not
completed, you are charged for the time during which the network attempts to
connect the call. You are charged for time spent connected to the Wireless Web or
Voice Portal, including time spent browsing on the Internet or Voice Portal 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 and Voice Portal data calls
may not be 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 and Voice Portal 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 and Voice Portal Services, including pricing, included minutes and
combining with other Service Plans, is available in our standard sales collateral for
Sprint PCS Wireless Web Services and Voice Portal Services or at www.sprintpcs.com.
Sprint PCS is not a publisher of third party content that can be accessed through
Wireless Web Services or Voice Portal Services. Sprint PCS is not responsible for any
opinions, advice, statements, services or other information is provided by third parties
and accessible through Wireless Web Services or Voice Portal Services. Neither

other funds. If Services are terminated for any reason, we may, without notice to you,
apply your deposit toward payment of outstanding charges and return any excess 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 return and, during that period, we may charge a
monthly servicing fee against the deposit balance. Any money held during this oneyear period will not accrue interest for your benefit. You forfeit any portion of the
money left after the one-year period.
Taxes and Other Regulatory Related Charges
We invoice you for taxes, fees and other charges levied by federal, state or local
authorities, or foreign government on Services. We also assess charges associated with
regulatory mandates and obligations, such as Universal Service and Enhanced 911
service. 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
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 another CDMA PCS provider’s
system only when a roaming agreement is in place between Sprint PCS and the other
provider. 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. If there is a gap or other interruption of coverage within a Sprint PCS coverage
area that prevents connection with the Sprint PCS network and your dual-mode
phone is set to roam automatically when outside Sprint PCS coverage, you may incur
roaming fees within a Sprint PCS coverage area. 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.
Interruption of Service
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 notify us within 24 hours of
the disconnection to request credit.
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.
The only warranties on the phones or other equipment are any limited warranties
extended by the manufacturers. We have no liability in connection with the phones
and other equipment or for the manufacturers’ acts or omissions.
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 (for example, a police
report or sworn statement). 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 cooperate reasonably with us
in investigating suspected unlawful or fraudulent use.

TTY Access
A TTY (also known as TDD or Text Telephone) is a telecommunications device that
allows people who are deaf or hard of hearing, or who have speech or language
disabilities, to communicate by telephone. It is not possible to use your phone with a
TTY.
Warranty/Terms
and Conditions
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 information about automatic Caller ID
blocking. The Number assigned to your phone can be blocked on a per-call basis by
dialing *67 + Destination Number + OK, but Caller ID delivery resumes on the next
call you make. Caller ID display on incoming calls to your Number depends on
receiving the information from the calling party.
Pay-Per-Call Service
We will not complete calls from your Number to 900, 976 and similar numbers for
pay-per-call services.
International Calling
You may be limited in the international destinations that you can call with Services.
You should contact Sprint PCS Customer Care for information about international
destinations that you cannot call.
Limitation of Liability
Except as otherwise provided in this section, our sole liability to you for any loss or
damage arising out of providing or failing to provide Services (including mistakes,
omissions, interruptions, delays, errors, or defects) does not exceed (1) in cases
related to a specific piece of equipment, the prorated MRC for Services to the piece of
equipment during the affected period, or (2) in cases not related to a specific piece of
equipment, the prorated MRCs for Services to you during the affected period. Neither
we nor our vendors, suppliers or licensors are liable for any damage arising out of or
in connection with:
a) any act or omission of any telecommunications service or other service provider
other than us;
b) any directory listing;
c) any dropped calls or inability to place or receive calls;
d) any interruption of Services, including interruptions caused by equipment or
facilities failure or shortages, transmission limitations or system capacity limitations;
e) traffic or other accidents, or any health-related claims allegedly arising from the
use of Services, phones, equipment or accessories used in connection with the
Services;
f) the use of Sprint PCS Wireless Web Services, including the accuracy or reliability of

authorized employees or agents;
j) events due to factors beyond our control, including acts of God (including, without
limitation, weather-related phenomena, fire or earthquake), war, riot, strike, or
orders of governmental authority;
k) any act or omission of any third party or independent contractor that offers
products or services in conjunction with or through the Services, or
l) your negligent or intentional act or omission.
NO CONSEQUENTIAL OR OTHER DAMAGES
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES ARE WE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL,
CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE OR SPECIAL DAMAGES OF ANY NATURE
WHATSOEVER ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH PROVIDING OR
FAILING TO PROVIDE SERVICES, PHONES OR OTHER EQUIPMENT USED IN
CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, LOST
PROFITS, LOSS OF BUSINESS, OR COST OF REPLACEMENT PRODUCTS AND
SERVICES. THIS SECTION SURVIVES TERMINATION OF THIS AGREEMENT.
Indemnification
You indemnify and defend us, our partners, directors, officers, employees and agents
from and against any claim, action, damage, liability and expense arising out of or
in connection with: (1) your acts or omissions that occur in connection with your use
of the Services or equipment used in connection with the Services, and (2) any
communications you make or receive using the Services. This indemnification
extends to and includes any attorney’s fees and costs incurred by us arising from any
actions or claims to which this indemnification applies, or from the contesting of the
applicability of this provision. This section survives termination of this Agreement.
ARBITRATION OF DISPUTES
ANY CLAIM, CONTROVERSY OR DISPUTE, WHETHER SOUNDING IN CONTRACT,
STATUTE, OR TORT, INCLUDING FRAUD, MISREPRESENTATION, OR ANY OTHER
LEGAL THEORY, RELATED DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY TO THE SERVICES,
WHETHER BETWEEN THE COMPANY AND THE CUSTOMER OR BETWEEN THE
COMPANY OR THE CUSTOMER, ON THE ONE HAND, AND EMPLOYEES, AGENTS OR
AFFILIATED BUSINESSES OF THE OTHER PARTY, ON THE OTHER HAND, SHALL BE
RESOLVED BY ARBITRATION AS PRESCRIBED IN THIS SECTION. THE FEDERAL
ARBITRATION ACT, NOT STATE LAW, GOVERNS THE QUESTION OF WHETHER A
CLAIM IS SUBJECT TO ARBITRATION.
A single arbitrator engaged in the practice of law will conduct the arbitration under
the rules of the American Arbitration Association. The arbitrator will be selected in
accordance with AAA procedures from a list of qualified people maintained by the
AAA. All expedited procedures prescribed by the AAA rules will apply, and each party
will bear their own costs and attorney’s fees.
No discovery will be permitted, except that the parties will exchange, thirty days prior
to the hearing on their dispute, all documents to be submitted to the arbitrator,
including any reports or summaries, and a list of the names and addresses of those

persons to be called to testify. Following exchange of this information, the parties
may agree to waive a hearing.
The arbitrator will have authority only to award compensatory damages and will not
have authority to award punitive damages, lost profits, or other non-compensatory
damages. The arbitrator’s decision and award will be final and binding, and
judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court with
jurisdiction. The arbitrator’s decision must not contain findings of fact or
conclusions of law.
If any party files a judicial or administrative action asserting a claim that is subject to
arbitration and another party successfully stays such action or compels arbitration,
the party filing that action must pay the other party’s costs and expenses incurred in
seeking such stay or compelling arbitration, including attorney’s fees.
Notices
You may get our current address for written notice by calling Sprint PCS Customer
Care. Written notice to you is sent to your last known address in our invoicing records.
Written notice is deemed delivered 3 days after deposit in the U.S. mail, postage
prepaid, and properly addressed. Unless required by this Agreement or Applicable
Laws, (1) you may notify us by calling Sprint PCS Customer Care, and (2) we may
notify you by leaving a message for you on your Sprint PCS Phone, answering
machine or with your answering service. Notice addresses may be changed by giving
notice as provided in this section.
Choice of Law; Jurisdiction
This Agreement is governed by and must be construed under federal law and the laws
of the State of Kansas, without regard to choice of law principles. You agree to submit
yourself to the personal jurisdiction of the courts in the State of Kansas.
General
If either of us does not enforce any right or remedy available under this Agreement,
that failure is not a waiver of the right or remedy for any other breach or failure by
the other party. Our waiver of any requirement in any one instance is not a general
waiver of that requirement and does not amend this Agreement. If any part of this
Agreement is held invalid or unenforceable, that part is interpreted consistent with
Applicable Laws as nearly as possible to reflect the original intentions of the parties
and the rest of this Agreement remains in full force and effect. Section headings are
for descriptive purposes only and are not used to interpret this Agreement. You may
not assign this Agreement to any other person or entity without our prior written
approval. This Agreement (including any referenced documents and attachments)
makes up the entire agreement between you and us and replaces all prior written or
spoken agreements, representations, promises or understandings between you and us.
The provisions of this Agreement that are contemplated to be enforceable after the
termination of the Agreement survive termination of this Agreement. This Agreement
is subject to any applicable federal and state law (collectively, “Applicable Laws”). If
there is a conflict, the Service Plan (including any Term Service Plan) controls over
the Terms.
