Installing the Battery
Charging the Battery
Switch off your phone before installing or replacing the battery.
Your phone’s battery should have enough power for the phone to turn on, find a signal,
and make a few calls. You should fully charge the battery as soon as possible.
If the battery is low, there will be a pop-up message on the screen.
As you charge your phone, the screen will tell you the exact battery
level on the lock screen. See Locking/Unlocking the Screen and Keys.
WARNING! Use only ZTE-approved chargers and cables. The use
of unapproved accessories could damage your phone or cause the
battery to explode.
1.Connect the adapter to the charging jack. Ensure that the adapter is
inserted with the correct orientation. Do not force the connector into
the charging jack.
2.Connect the charger to a standard AC power outlet. If the phone is on,
you’ll see a charging icon, such as or , appear on the Status Bar.
3.Disconnect the charger when the battery is fully charged.
NOTE: If the battery is extremely low, you may be unable to power on the phone even when
it is being charged. In this case, try again after charging the phone for at least 20 minutes.
Contact customer service if you still cannot power on the phone after prolonged charging.

WARNING! Encryption is irreversible. The only way to revert to an unencrypted phone is
to perform a factory data reset which erases all your data.
Encryption provides additional protection in case your phone is stolen and may be
required or recommended in some organizations. Consult your system administrator
before turning it on. In many cases the PIN or password you set for encryption is
controlled by the system administrator.
Before turning on encryption, prepare as follows:
Set a lock screen pattern, PIN, or password.
Charge the battery.
Keep the phone connected to the charger.
•Schedule an hour or more for the encryption process. You must not interrupt it or you
will lose some or all of your data.
When you’re ready to turn on encryption:

or password.
Subsequently you must draw the pattern, enter your PIN or password each time you
power on your phone in order to decrypt it.

This phone is designed and manufactured not to exceed the emission limits for exposure
to radio frequency (RF) energy set by the Federal Communications Commission of the
United States.
During SAR testing, this device was set to transmit at its highest certified power level in
all tested frequency bands, and placed in positions that simulate RF exposure in usage
against the head with no separation, and near the body with the separation of 10 mm.
Although the SAR is determined at the highest certified power level, the actual SAR level
of the device while operating can be well below the maximum value. This is because
the phone is designed to operate at multiple power levels so as to use only the power
required to reach the network. In general, the closer you are to a wireless base station
antenna, the lower the power output.
The exposure standard for wireless devices employs a unit of measurement known as the
Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit set by the FCC is 1.6 W/kg.
Tests for SAR are conducted using standard operating positions accepted by the FCC with
the device transmitting at its highest certified power level in all tested frequency bands.
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this model phone with all reported
SAR levels evaluated as in compliance with the FCC RF exposure guidelines. SAR
information on this model phone is on file with the FCC and can be found under the
Display Grant section of after searching on FCC ID: SRQ-Z828.
For this device, the highest reported SAR value for usage against the head is 1.04 W/kg,
for usage near the body is 1.19 W/kg.
While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various phones and at various
positions, they all meet the government requirements.
SAR compliance for body-worn operation is based on a separation distance of 15 mm
between the unit and the human body. Carry this device at least 15 mm away from your
body to ensure RF exposure level compliant or lower to the reported level. To support
For Your Safety
body-worn operation, choose the belt clips or holsters, which do not contain metallic
components, to maintain a separation of 15 mm between this device and your body.
RF exposure compliance with any body-worn accessory, which contains metal, was not
tested and certified, and use such body-worn accessory should be avoided.
Operations in the band 5.15-5.25GHz are restricted to indoor use only.
FCC Compliance
This mobile phone complies with part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the
following two conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful interference, and
(2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may
cause undesired operation.
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B
digital device, pursuant to part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide
reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This
equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed
and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio
communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a
particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or
television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and
on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the
following measures:
•Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
•Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
•Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the
receiver is connected.
•Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
CAUTION: Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the manufacturer could
void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.
The antenna(s) used for this transmitter must not be co-located or operating in
conjunction with any other antenna or transmitter.
For Your Safety
Hearing Aid Compatibility (HAC) Regulations for Mobile Phones
In 2003, the FCC adopted rules to make digital wireless telephones compatible with
hearing aids and cochlear implants. Although analog wireless phones do not usually
cause interference with hearing aids or cochlear implants, digital wireless phones
sometimes do because of electromagnetic energy emitted by the phone’s antenna,
backlight, or other components. Your phone is compliant with FCC HAC regulations
(ANSI C63.19-2011).
While some wireless phones are used near some hearing devices (hearing aids and
cochlear implants), users may detect a buzzing, humming, or whining noise. Some
hearing devices are more immune than others to this interference noise, and phones
also vary in the amount of interference they generate. The wireless telephone industry
has developed ratings for some of their mobile phones to assist hearing device users in
finding phones that may be compatible with their hearing devices. Not all phones have
been rated. Phones that have been rated have a label on the box. These ratings are not
guaranteed. Results will vary, depending on the level of immunity of your hearing device
and the degree of your hearing loss. If your hearing device happens to be vulnerable to
interference, you may not be able to use a rated phone successfully. Trying out the phone
with your hearing device is the best way to evaluate it for your personal needs.
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 or the manufacturer of this phone for information on hearing aid
compatibility. If you have questions about return or exchange policies, consult your
service provider or phone retailer.
M-Ratings: Phones rated M3 or M4 meet FCC requirements and are likely to generate
less interference with hearing devices than phones that are not labeled. 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.
For Your Safety
T4 is the better/higher of the two ratings. (Note that not all hearing devices contain
Your Z828TL has been tested for hearing aid device compatibility and has an
M3/T3 rating.
Hearing devices may also be measured for immunity to this type of interference. Your
hearing device manufacturer or hearing health professional may help you find results for
your hearing device.

wireless devices and other steps the FCC has taken to ensure that individuals with
disabilities have access to telecommunications services, please go to

Care must be taken when using the phone in close proximity to personal medical devices,
such as pacemakers and hearing aids.
Hearing Aids
People with hearing aids or other cochlear implants may experience interfering noises
when using wireless devices or when one is nearby. The level of interference will depend
on the type of hearing device and the distance from the interference source. Increasing
the separation between them may reduce the interference. You may also consult your
hearing aid manufacturer to discuss alternatives.
Medical Devices
Please consult your doctor and the device manufacturers to determine if the operation of
your phone may interfere with the operation of your medical devices.
Turn off your wireless device when requested to do so in hospitals, clinics, or healthcare
facilities. These requests are designed to prevent possible interference with sensitive
medical equipment.
Interference in Vehicles
Please note that because of possible interference with electronic equipment, some
vehicle manufacturers forbid the use of mobile phones in their vehicles unless a handsfree kit with an external antenna is included in the installation.
