chargers provide optimum performance. Other
chargers may not fully charge the iDEN Lithium
Ion battery or may yield a reduced number of
lifetime charge cycles.
• Extreme temperatures degrade battery
performance. Do not store the battery where

information is stored on your SIM card, not in your
phone, you can remove the information by
removing your SIM card.
Note: Except for making emergency calls, your
phone will not function without the SIM
card.
To prevent unauthorized use of your phone, your
SIM card is protected by a PIN that you enter each
time the phone is powered on. You can change the
PIN or turn off the requirement that it be entered.

prompted to enter your PIN each time you power
on your phone.
Note: If a SIM PIN is required, your phone will
not function until the SIM PIN is entered,
except for making emergency calls.
1 From the main menu, select Settings >
Security > SIM PIN.
2 Select On or Off.
3 Enter the current SIM PIN.
Note: The default SIM PIN is 0000. Change your

will not function with a blocked SIM
card.
To unblock the PIN:

storage and feature use. For Nextel SIM card
compatibility information, visit nextel.com/sim.

antenna until the antenna clicks into
place causes severely degraded
performance, which may result in
missed calls, dropped calls, or garbled
audio.

Your phone comes with a Standard Lithium Ion
Battery, rapid travel charger, and holster.
Various accessories are available for use with your

Wireless Local Number
Portability: Bringing Your
Phone Number From Another
Carrier
If you are bringing your phone number from
another carrier, your new phone will be active as
soon as you receive it. Nextel will provide you with
a temporary phone number so that you can begin
using your phone immediately. Once the number
you have brought to Nextel is activated, your
temporary phone number will be deactivated and
service with your previous carrier will be cancelled
automatically. You will receive a text message on
your Nextel phone letting you know that activation
is complete. Simply turn your phone off and back
on again to complete activation.
Here is additional information you need to be
aware of until the number you have brought to
Nextel is active on the Nextel network:
Nextel® Voice Mail
We suggest you set up your voice mail box after
the number you brought to Nextel is active on your
Nextel phone and your temporary phone number is
deactivated. If you set up your voice mail box prior
to this, all messages and all settings (including
your greeting and password) will be lost when the
number you have brought to Nextel becomes
active.
Text Messaging
During the activation process, it is possible that text
messages may not be properly routed to your
Nextel phone.

911 Calls
Nextel continues to make efforts to ensure that all

you make a call to 911 from your temporary phone
number and the call fails, the 911 emergency
response center will not be able to call you back on
your Nextel phone if in the meantime your Nextel
phone has been programmed with your permanent
phone number. As with any wireless 911 call, if
your call is disconnected before location and
details have been provided, be sure to call 911
again and advise that you were disconnected.

Digital Rights
Management (DRM)
Viewing License Information
When you download multimedia content available
online, such as Java applications, these items may
be subject to DRM restrictions. DRM, or digital
rights management, is a system that defines how
copyrighted multimedia content can be distributed
and used.
• For time-based items, either the date and time
the item is scheduled to expire, or the number of
days left
• For count-based items, the number of credits
(uses) left or an unlimited use notice
• The name of the item’s vendor
DRM limits items to time-based or count-based
usage settings. Time-based settings let you use
the given item for a specified interval. Examples of
time-based settings include being able to use an
item for a specified number of days from the date
of purchase, a specified number of days from the
date that the item is first used, or a specified
number of minutes. Count-based settings let you
use an item for a specified number of times after
you download it or for unlimited use.

GPS Enabled
Your phone’s GPS Enabled feature uses
information from Global Positioning System (GPS)
satellites orbiting the Earth to determine the
approximate geographical location of your phone,
expressed as latitude and longitude. The
availability and accuracy of this location
information (and the amount of time that it takes to
calculate it) will vary depending on the environment
in which you are using the GPS feature. For
example, GPS location fixes are often difficult to
obtain indoors, in covered locations, between high
buildings, or in other situations where you have not
established a clear broad view of the sky. SEE:
“IMPORTANT: Things to Keep in Mind”.
When you make a 911 emergency call, the GPS
feature of your phone can help emergency
personnel locate you if your phone has adequate
access to GPS satellite signals and your
emergency response center is equipped to process
such information.
You can also use the GPS feature to view your
approximate location. Location information
appears on the phone’s display.
Java applications loaded on your phone can also
request your location. If your phone is connected to
a laptop computer or similar device, software
running on that device can request your location.
To protect your privacy, you can control whether
these requests are granted.
IMPORTANT: Things to Keep
in Mind
If you are using the GPS feature of your phone
while driving, please give full attention to driving
and to the road.
Where adequate signals from multiple satellites
are not available (usually because your GPS
antenna cannot establish a view of a wide area of
open sky), the GPS feature of your phone WILL
NOT WORK. Such situations include but are
not limited to:
• In underground locations
• Inside of buildings, trains, or other covered
vehicles
• Under any other metal or concrete roof or
structure
• Between tall buildings or under dense
tree-cover
• Near a powerful radio or television tower
126
GPS Enabled
• When your GPS antenna is covered (for
example, by your hand or other object) or
facing the ground
• In temperature extremes outside the
operating limits of your phone
Walking or driving very slowly may also
substantially reduce GPS performance.
Even where location information can be
calculated in such situations, it may take much
longer to do so, and your location estimate may
not be as accurate. Therefore, in any 911 call,
always report the location to the emergency
response center if you can and if you cannot,
remain on your phone for as long as the
emergency response center instructs you.
Even where adequate signals from multiple
satellites are available, your GPS feature will
only provide an approximate location, often
within 150 feet (45 meters) but sometimes
much further from your actual location. Advice
on how to improve GPS performance is
provided in “Enhancing GPS Performance” on
page 129.
While the GPS feature of your phone can be a
valuable navigational aid, it does not replace the
need for careful navigating and good judgment.
Never rely solely on one device for navigation.
Remember that the accuracy of the location
127
information and the time needed to obtain it will
vary depending on circumstances, particularly the
ability to receive signals from adequate numbers of
satellites.
On emergency calls, your phone uses assistance
information from the phone network to improve the
speed and accuracy of your phone’s location
calculation: if such assistance information
becomes unavailable, it may reduce the speed and
accuracy of the location calculation.
The satellites used by the GPS feature of your
phone are controlled by the U.S. government and
are subject to changes implemented in accordance
with the Department of Defense GPS user policy
and the Federal Radionavigation Plan. These
changes may affect the performance of the GPS
feature of your phone.
Making an Emergency Call
Dial 911 to be connected to an emergency
response center. If you are on an active call, you
must end it before calling 911.
When you make an emergency 911 call, the GPS
feature of your phone begins to seek information to
calculate your approximate location. It will take
the GPS feature of your phone some time to
determine your approximate location. Even
where your phone has good access to sufficient
Viewing Your Approximate Location
GPS satellite signals and network assist data, it
may take 30 seconds or more to determine the
approximate location. This time will increase where
there is reduced access to satellite signals. When
your approximate location is determined, it is made
available to the appropriate emergency response
center.
In some cases, your local 911 emergency
response center may not be equipped to
receive GPS location information. For this
reason, and because the GPS location information
reported is only approximate or may not be
available in your location (see “IMPORTANT:
Things to Keep in Mind” on page 126), always
report your location to the 911 operator you
speak to when making an emergency call, if able,
just as you would when using a phone without GPS
capabilities.
Note: If you are concerned about whether your
local 911 emergency response center is
equipped to receive GPS location
information, contact your local authorities.
In general, if your phone has access to signals
from more GPS satellites, your location will be
determined faster and more accurately than if your
phone has access to signals from fewer GPS
satellites.
If your phone does not have adequate access to
GPS satellites signals, the location of the nearest
cell tower in contact with your phone is
automatically made available to the emergency
response center, if the center has the capability to
receive such information.
See “Enhancing GPS Performance” on page
129 for information on how to help your phone
determine your location.
Viewing Your Approximate
Location
1 From the main menu, select GPS > Position.
2 Scroll to view the entire screen.
This displays the following information about the
last time your location was calculated:
• The time (as Greenwich Mean Time) and date
that the location was last calculated
• The approximate location, expressed as latitude
and longitude
• The estimated accuracy of the calculated
location. This estimate of accuracy is only a very
rough estimate and may vary substantially from
the actual accuracy of the approximate location
information reported.
128
GPS Enabled
• The number of satellites used to calculate the
location. In general, more satellites make for
better accuracy.
To calculate your location again:
Press A under Rfrsh.
It may take your phone several minutes to
complete the process of determining your location.
During this time, a message usually appears on
your phone’s display saying your phone is
scanning for satellites. For tips on getting the best
location calculation, see “Enhancing GPS
Performance”.
The Position screen displays the updated
information.
To cancel a location calculation before it is
completed:
Press A under Cancel to return to the Position
screen. -orPress e to return to the idle screen.
Each time approximate location of your phone is
calculated, the latest location information is stored
in your phone and remains there even when your
phone is powered off. You will see this information
the next time you view the Position screen.
129
If you received a phone call or alert while
attempting to determine your location, the Position
screen will disappear, but your phone will continue
attempting to determine its location. If it is
successful, the new location information will be
displayed the next time you view the Position
screen.
Enhancing GPS Performance
Sometimes the GPS feature of your phone may be
unable to complete a location calculation
successfully. If this happens when you are making
an emergency call, the location of the nearest cell
tower in contact with your phone is made available
to the appropriate emergency response center if
the center has the capability to receive such
information. If this happens when you are trying to
view your location on the phone’s display, you will
see a message indicating that your phone cannot
access satellites.
Enhancing GPS Performance
To improve accuracy and increase your chances of
a successful calculation, do the following while
your phone is determining your approximate
location:
• Stay in the open. The GPS feature works best
where there is nothing between your phone and
a large amount of open sky. If possible, go
outside, away from tall buildings and foliage.
While performance in a building is improved by
moving closer to windows, glass with certain sun
shielding films may block satellite signals.
• Extend your phone antenna.
• Hold your phone to enhance reception. Signals
from GPS satellites are transmitted to your GPS
antenna, which is in your phone antenna. Hold
your phone away from your body, giving the
antenna clear access to satellite signals. Do not
cover the antenna area with your fingers or
anything else.
GPS antenna

GPS Enabled
• Stand still. If possible, stand still until your phone
is finished determining your location. Moving
your phone at a walking pace while your phone
is calculating your approximate location may
substantially decrease GPS performance.
• In a car. When using the GPS Enabled feature in
a car, position your phone so that the GPS
antenna has good access to GPS signals
through the car’s windows. Typically, the GPS
antenna has best access to GPS signals in a car
when placed near a window.
