your phone will overheat, catch fire, or explode,
resulting in serious bodily injury, death, or

Battery Capacity
Your phone is equipped with a Lithium-Ion Polymer (Lipoly) battery. It allows you to recharge your battery
before it is fully drained. The battery provides up to 7
hours of continuous digital talk time.
2A. Phone Basics

When the battery reaches 5% of its capacity, the battery
icon blinks. When there are approximately two minutes
of talk time left, the phone sounds an audible alert and
then turns off.
WARNING: Do not handle a damaged or leaking Li-poly
battery as you can be burned.
Note: Long backlight settings, searching for service, vibrate
mode, browser use, and other variables may reduce
the battery’s talk and standby times.
Tip: Watch your phone’s battery level indicator and charge the
battery before it runs out of power.
Installing the Battery
See “Setting Up Your Phone” on page 2.
Removing the Battery
1. Make sure the power is off so that you don’t lose
any stored numbers or messages.
2. Hold the phone securely with both hands.

Your phone is compatible with select TTY devices.
Please check with the manufacturer of your TTY device
to ensure that it is compatible with digital cell phones.
Your phone and TTY device will connect via 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 via the state
Telecommunications Relay Service (TRS) by first
dialing 7-1-1 Talk . Then provide the state TRS with
this number: 866-727-4889.

WARNING: 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 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.

About Bluetooth
Bluetooth is a short-range communications technology
that allows you to connect wirelessly to a number of
Bluetooth devices, such as headsets and hands-free
car kits, and Bluetooth-enabled handhelds, computers,
printers, and wireless phones. The Bluetooth
communication range is usually up to approximately
30 feet.
By default, your device’s Bluetooth feature is set to Off.
Turning Bluetooth on makes your phone “discoverable”
by other in-range Bluetooth devices.

time it will take to play the clip prior to accessing it?
Once you have selected a channel, you will see a

4. Are the videos that I’m viewing “live” videos?

channels available through Sprint TV stream live
content. Others provide media on demand with
video and audio clips that are refreshed throughout
the day, but that are not “live.”
5. After purchasing access to an Available Channel for a
monthly fee, do I receive any confirmation? That is,
how do I know it has been purchased?

available content.
6. If I don’t subscribe to a data plan, will I still be able to
view the multimedia clips?
Yes. For service access charges, please consult

4A. Important Safety Information
General Precautions
There are several simple guidelines to operating your phone
properly and maintaining safe, satisfactory service.
䢇 To maximize performance, do not touch the bottom portion
of your phone where the internal antenna is located while
using the phone.
䢇 Speak directly into the mouthpiece.
䢇 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.
䢇 Do not expose your phone to direct sunlight for extended
periods of time (such as on the dashboard of a car).
䢇 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.
䢇 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.
Note: For the best care of your phone, only Sprint-authorized
personnel should service your phone and accessories. Failure
to do so may be dangerous and void your warranty.
Do Not Rely on Your Phone for Emergency Calls
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.
Mobile phones operate using radio signals, which cannot
guarantee connection in all conditions. Therefore you should
never rely solely upon any mobile phone for essential
communication (e.g., medical emergencies). Emergency calls
may not be possible on all cellular networks or when certain
network services or mobile phone features are in use. Check
with your local service provider for details.
RF signals may affect improperly installed or inadequately
shielded electronic operating systems or entertainment
systems in motor vehicles. Check with the manufacturer or their
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.
Using Your Phone While Driving
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.
Talking on your 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.
Tip: Purchase an optional hands-free accessory at your local Sprint
Store, or call Sprint at 1-866-866-7509. You can also dial # 2 2 2
on your phone.
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.
Note: Always turn off the phone in healthcare 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 your phone
off when in a blasting area or in other areas with signs
indicating two-way radios should be turned off. Construction
crews often use remote-control RF devices to set off explosives.
Turn your phone off when you’re in any area that has a
potentially explosive atmosphere. Although it’s rare, your phone
and accessories could generate sparks. Sparks can cause an
explosion or fire, resulting in bodily injury or even death. These
areas are often, but not always, clearly marked. They include:
䡲 Fueling areas such as gas stations.
䡲 Below deck on boats.
䡲 Fuel or chemical transfer or storage facilities.
䡲 Areas where the air contains chemicals or particles such
as grain, dust, or metal powders.
䡲 Any other area where you would normally be advised to
turn off your vehicle’s engine.
Note: Never transport or store flammable gas, flammable liquids, or
explosives in the compartment of your vehicle that contains
your phone or accessories.
Restricting Children’s Access to Your Phone
Your phone is not a toy. Do not allow children to play with it as
they could hurt themselves and others, damage the phone or
make calls that increase your Sprint invoice.

4A. Important Safety Information
Using Your Phone With a Hearing
Aid Device
A number of Sprint phones have been tested for hearing aid
device compatibility. When some wireless phones are used
with certain hearing devices (including hearing aids and
cochlear implants), users may detect a noise which can
interfere with the effectiveness of the hearing device.
Some hearing devices are more immune than others to this
interference noise, and phones also vary in the amount of
interference noise they may generate. ANSI standard C63.19
was developed to provide a standardized means of measuring
both wireless phone and hearing devices to determine usability
rating categories for both.
Ratings have been developed for mobile phones to assist
hearing device users find phones that may be compatible with
their hearing device. Not all phones have been rated for
compatibility with hearing devices. Phones that have been
rated have a label located on the box. Your LG Rumor TouchTM
has an M4 and a T4 rating.
These ratings are not guarantees. Results will vary depending
on the user’s hearing device and individual type and degree of
hearing loss. If a hearing device is particularly vulnerable to
interference noise; even a phone with a higher rating may still
cause unacceptable noise levels in the hearing device. Trying
M-Ratings: Phones rated M3 or M4 meet FCC requirements for
hearing aid compatibility and are likely to generate less
interference to hearing devices than unrated phones. (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. (T4 is the
better/higher of the two ratings. Note that not all hearing
devices have telecoils in them.)
Hearing aid devices may also be measured for immunity to
interference noise from wireless phones and should have
ratings similar to phones. Ask your hearing healthcare
professional for the rating of your hearing aid. Add the rating of
your hearing aid and your phone to determine probable
usability:
䢇 Any combined rating equal to or greater than six offers
excellent use.
䢇 Any combined rating equal to five is considered normal use.
䢇 Any combined rating equal to four is considered usable.
Thus, if you pair an M3 hearing aid with an M3 phone, you will
have a combined rating of six for “excellent use.” This is
synonymous for T ratings.
Should you experience interference or find the quality of
service unsatisfactory after purchasing your phone, promptly
return it to the store within 30 days of purchase. (A restocking
fee may be applied to exchanges. Visit www.sprint.com/returns
for details.) More information about hearing aid compatibility
may be found at: www.fcc.gov, www.fda.gov, and
www.accesswireless.org.
Getting the Best Hearing Device
Experience With Your Phone
To further minimize interference:
䢇 Set the phone’s display and keypad backlight settings to
ensure the minimum time interval:
1. Touch
> Main Menu > Settings > Display >
Backlight > Backlight Dim, or Backlight Off.
2. Highlight the minimum time interval setting and touch
Done .
䢇
䢇
Position the phone so the internal antenna is farthest from
your hearing aid.
Move the phone around to find the point with least
interference.
Important Safety Information
out the phone with your hearing device is the best way to
evaluate it for your personal needs.
Sprint further suggests you experiment with multiple phones
(even those not labeled M3/T3 or M4/T4) while in the store to
find the one that works best with your hearing aid device.

Caring for the Battery
Protecting Your Battery
The guidelines listed below help you get the most out of your
battery’s performance.
Recently there have been some public reports of wireless
phone batteries overheating, catching fire, or exploding. It
appears that many, if not all, of these reports involve
counterfeit or inexpensive, aftermarket-brand batteries with
unknown or questionable manufacturing standards. Sprint is
not aware of similar problems with Sprint phones resulting
from the proper use of batteries and accessories approved
by Sprint or the manufacturer of your phone. Use only Sprintapproved or manufacturer-approved batteries and
accessories found at Sprint Stores or through your phone’s
manufacturer, or call 1-866-866-7509 to order. They’re also
available at www.sprint.com — click Accessories. Buying the
right batteries and accessories is the best way to ensure
they’re genuine and safe.
In order to avoid damage, charge the battery only in
temperatures that range from 32° F to 113° F (0° C to 45° C).
Don’t use the battery charger in direct sunlight or in high
humidity areas, such as the bathroom.
Never dispose of the battery by incineration.
Keep the metal contacts on top of the battery clean.
Don’t attempt to disassemble or short-circuit the battery.
The battery may need recharging if it has not been used for
a long period of time.
136
4A. Important Safety Information
It’s best to replace the battery when it no longer provides
acceptable performance. It can be recharged hundreds of
times before it needs replacing.
Don’t store the battery in high temperature areas for long
periods of time. It’s best to follow these storage rules:
Less than one month:
-4° F to 140° F (-20° C to 60° C)
More than one month:
-4° F to 113° F (-20° C to 45° C)
Disposal of Lithium-Ion Polymer (Li-poly) Batteries
Do not handle a damaged or leaking Li-poly battery as you can
be burned.
For safe disposal options of your Li-poly batteries, contact your
nearest Sprint authorized service center.
Special Note: Be sure to dispose of your battery properly. In
some areas, the disposal of batteries in household or business
trash may be prohibited.
Radio Frequency (RF) Energy
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
watt to 0.2 watt in digital mode.
Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) for Wireless
Phones
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).
The SAR value corresponds to the relative amount of RF
energy absorbed into the head of a user of a wireless handset.
The design of your phone complies with updated NCRP
standards described below.
Body-Worn Operation
To maintain compliance with FCC RF exposure guidelines, if
you wear a handset on your body, use a Sprint-supplied or
Sprint-approved carrying case, holster or other body-worn
accessory. If you do not use a body-worn accessory, ensure
the antenna is at least 7/16 inch (1.5 centimeters) from your
body when transmitting. Use of non-Sprint-approved
accessories may violate FCC RF exposure guidelines.
For more information about RF exposure, visit the FCC website
at www.fcc.gov.
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 than
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.
The highest reported SAR values of the LG Rumor TouchTM
are:
Cellular CDMA mode (Part 22):
Head: 0.62 W/kg; Body-worn: 0.87 W/kg
Important Safety Information
Knowing Radio Frequency Safety
PCS mode (Part 24):
Head: 1.24 W/kg; Body-worn: 0.49 W/kg
