Getting Started With Sprint PCS Service
Determining if Your Phone is Already Activated
If you purchased your phone at a Sprint Store, it is probably
activated, unlocked, and ready to use. If you received your
phone in the mail, it probably has been activated; all you need
to do is unlock it.
If your phone is not activated, please refer to the Welcome to
Sprint brochure included with your phone.
Unlocking Your Phone
To unlock your phone, follow these easy steps:
1. Press
to turn the phone on.
2. Press Unlock (left softkey).
Note: To select a softkey, press the softkey button directly below the softkey
text that appears at the bottom left and bottom right of your phone’s
display screen. Softkey actions change according to the screen you’re
viewing and will not appear if there is no corresponding action available.
3. Enter your four-digit lock code. (For security purposes,
the code is not visible as you type.)
Tip: If you can’t recall your lock code, try using the last four digits of either
your Social Security number or wireless phone number or try 0000 or
NATL (6285). If none of these work, call Sprint Customer Service at
1-888-211-4PCS (4727).

with the manufacturer of your TTY device to ensure that it
supports digital wireless transmission. 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 PCS Service, please call

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 PSAP community
are currently working to resolve this.

Using Data Roam Guard (page 98)
Roaming
Roaming is the ability to make or receive calls when you’re off
the Nationwide Sprint PCS Network. Your new SCP-8400 by
Sanyo works anywhere on the Nationwide Sprint PCS
Network and allows you to roam on 1900 and 800 MHz
digital networks.
This section explains how roaming works as well as special
features that let you manage your roaming experience.
Section 2D: Controlling Your Roaming Experience
93
Understanding Roaming
Recognizing the Roaming Icon on the Display Screen
Your phone’s display screen always lets you know when you’re
off the Nationwide Sprint PCS Network. Any time you are
roaming, the phone displays the roaming icon ( ).
Tip: Remember, when you are using your phone off the Nationwide
Sprint PCS Network, always dial numbers using 11 digits
(1 + area code + number).
Note: Unless your Sprint PCS service plan includes roaming, 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 on the Nationwide Sprint PCS Network.
However, you may not be able to access certain features,
such as Sprint PCS Vision.
Note: If you’re on a call when you leave the Nationwide Sprint PCS Network
and enter an area where roaming is available, 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 Nationwide Sprint PCS Network.
94
Section 2D: Controlling Your Roaming Experience
Checking for Voicemail Messages While Roaming
When you are roaming off the Nationwide Sprint PCS Network,
you may not receive on-phone notification of new voicemail
messages. Callers can still leave messages, but you will need
to periodically check your voicemail for new messages if you
are in a roaming service area for an extended time.
To check your voicemail while roaming:
1. Dial 1 + area code + your phone number.
2. When you hear your voicemail greeting, press
Shift
.
3. Enter your passcode at the prompt and follow the
voice prompts.
When you return to the Nationwide Sprint PCS Network,
voicemail notification will resume as normal.

.
Sprint Only allows you to access the Nationwide
Sprint PCS Network only and prevents roaming on
other networks.

Service is unavailable, the phone searches for an
alternate system.
Roaming Only forces the phone to seek a roaming
system. The previous setting (Sprint Only or
Automatic) is restored the next time the phone is
turned on.
Section 2D: Controlling Your Roaming Experience
Using Call Guard
Your phone has two ways of alerting you when you are
roaming off the Nationwide Sprint PCS Network: the onscreen
roaming icon and Call Guard. Call Guard makes it easy to
manage your roaming charges by requiring an extra step
before you can place or answer a roaming call. (This additional
step is not required when you make or receive calls while on
the Nationwide Sprint PCS Network.)
To turn Call Guard on or off:
1. Select
> Settings > Others > Roaming > Call Guard.
2. Select On or Off.
To place roaming calls with Call Guard on:

You can set your phone to alert you when you are roaming off
the Nationwide Sprint PCS Network and try to use data
services such as messaging.
To change your Data Roam Guard settings:
Select > Settings > Others > Roaming > Data Roam Guard
and choose an option:
Always Ask displays a pop-up notification when you
try to use data services in a roaming area.
Never Ask disables pop-up notifications.
To access data services with Data Roam Guard activated:

pop-up notification will appear, indicating that data
roaming rates may apply.

Multimedia FAQs
1. How does my phone’s SprintTV Service differ from
Sprint PCS Video Mail?
Sprint TV Service lets you access high-quality video and
audio clips provided by external sources. Video Mail lets
you capture, upload and share videos that you
personally create with your phone’s built-in camcorder.
2. Will I know if I’m receiving an incoming call while I’m
viewing or listening to an audio clip?
No. All incoming calls will roll into voicemail while you
are playing a clip. If the caller leaves a voicemail, the
voicemail icon will appear on the screen.
3. How long are the clips? Will I know the estimated time it
will take to play the clip prior to accessing it?
Once you have selected a channel, you will see a listing
of the available clips, with the clip’s length appearing
after the clip’s title (if available). In general, a clip’s
duration will depend on the story or content being
provided, and can be fairly short or as long as
a few minutes.
4. Can I access a multimedia clip wherever I am, as long as I
have my phone?
As long as you are on the Nationwide Sprint PCS
Network, you will have access to the audio and
video clips.
Note: SprintTV Service does not work while roaming off the Nationwide
Sprint PCS Network or where service is unavailable.
210
Section 2L: Using Your Phone’s Built-in Media Player
5. Are the videos that I’m viewing “live”videos?
It depends on the content provider. Some of the
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.”
6. 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?
The next time you access your media player’s Channel
Listings, the purchased channel title and corresponding
number will appear in the My Channels section.
7. Why are some channels already preloaded into the My
Channels section?
Some channels, such as Previews, are offered free of
charge as a customer courtesy. These channels
automatically appear in the My Channels section of your
Channel Listings.
8. If I don’t subscribe to Sprint PCS Vision Plan, will I still be
9. How can I easily access a channel without having to scroll
through all the channels in my Channel Listings?
Each channel will have a number to the left of it. You can
simply press this number to quickly access the clips
located within that channel.

able to view the multimedia clips?
Yes; for service access charges, please consult your
Sprint PCS service plan or visit www.sprint.com.
Tip: When entering the specific channel number, channels 01 - 09 do not
require you to enter a “0.”For example, to access channel “07,”just press the
“7”key.
Section 2L: Using Your Phone’s Built-in Media Player
211
10. What does it mean when the video pauses and I see the
word “loading”at the bottom of the screen?
This happens when the media player is in the process of
loading the data necessary to play the clip. It typically
occurs when there is heavy traffic on the network.
11. How can I cancel service if I decide I don’t want it?
To cancel your Multimedia Service, visit www.sprint.com
and sign on to My PCS with your account number and
password. From this page you have the ability to cancel
the service and/or any Available Channels to which
you subscribe.
12. If I place my stereo headphones on and insert them into the
phone’s headset jack, can I close the phone while I am
playing an audio (or video) clip withoutinterrupting the clip?
Yes. When you insert your stereo headset into the
phone’s headset jack, the phone automatically goes into
“headset mode,”allowing you to close the phone and
continue playing the clip (likewise, if your phone is in
“headset mode,”a phone call will not disconnect when
you close the phone).
13. Can I surf to a different channel while I am playing a clip?
Yes; while you are playing a clip, you can use the up and
down navigation buttons to surf to a different channel.
A small pop-up screen will appear that tells you which
channel you are watching as well as other channels you
have access to. Use the navigation buttons to scroll
through the different channels. Once you find a channel
that you want to watch, scroll to it and press
(or
simply wait approximately three seconds) and the
channel will begin loading.

Section 4A: Important Safety Information
General Precautions
There are several simple guidelines to operating your phone properly and
maintaining safe, satisfactory service.
Hold the phone with the antenna raised, fully extended, and over
your shoulder.
Try not to hold, bend, or twist the phone’s antenna.
Don’t use the phone if the antenna is damaged.
Speak directly into the mouthpiece.
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.
Do not expose your phone to direct sunlight for extended periods of
time (such as on the dashboard of a car).
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.
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.
Important Safety Information
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.
Maintaining Safe Use of and Access to
Your Phone
Do Not Rely on Your Phone for Emergency Calls
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 and/or mobile phone features are in use.
Check with your local service provider for details.
Section 4A: Important Safety Information

Using Your Phone While Driving
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 the
Sprint PCS Accessory Hotline at 1-800-974-2221 or by dialing
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.
Using Your Phone Near Other Electronic Devices
Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from radiofrequency (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 systems and/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.
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.
250
Section 4A: Important Safety Information
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:
Fueling areas such as gas stations.
Below deck on boats.
Fuel or chemical transfer or storage facilities.
Areas where the air contains chemicals or particles such as grain, dust,
or metal powders.
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.
Important Safety Information
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 PCS Invoice.
Section 4A: Important Safety Information
251
Using Your Phone With a Hearing Aid Device
Your phone has been tested for hearing aid device compatibility. When
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 are rated will have the rating on the box. Your SCP-8400 by
Sanyo has an M4 rating.
Note: Phones rated M3 or M4 meet FCC requirements and may generate less
interference to hearing devices than phones that are not labeled. M4 is the
better/higher of the two ratings.
The M3/M4 ratings do not guarantee successful interoperation between
your phone and hearing aid device. Results will vary depending on the level
of immunity of your hearing device and degree of your hearing loss.
The more immune your hearing aid device is, the less likely you are to
experience interference noise from your wireless phone. Hearing aid
devices should have ratings similar to phones. Ask your hearing healthcare
professional for the rating of your aids. Most new hearing aids have at least
an M2 immunity level. Add the “M”ratings of your hearing aid and your
phone to determine probable usability:
Any combined rating equal to or greater than six offers best use.
Any combined rating equal to five is considered normal use.
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 “best use.”
Sprint Nextel further suggests you experiment with multiple phones (even
those not labeled M3 or M4) while in the store to find the one that works
best with your hearing aid device. 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. With the
Sprint 30-day Risk-Free Guarantee, you may return the phone within
30 days of purchase for a full refund.

Caring for the Battery
Important Safety Information
1.
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 PCS® Phones resulting from the proper use of batteries and
accessories approved by Sprint or the manufacturer of your phone. Use
only Sprint-or manufacturer-approved batteries and accessories found
at Sprint Stores or through your phone’s manufacturer, or call 1-866343-1114 to order. They’re also available at www.sprint.com — click the
Wireless link under Personal, and then click Accessories under
Shop the Sprint PCS Store Online. 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).
Section 4A: Important Safety Information
253
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.
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 (Li-Ion) Batteries
Do not handle a damaged or leaking Li-Ion battery as you can be burned.
For safe disposal options of your Li-Ion 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.
Radiofrequency (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 radiofrequency (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 Radiofrequency Safety
The design of your 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
254
Section 4A: Important Safety Information
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).
Body-Worn Operation
For more information about RF exposure, visit the FCC Web site 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 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.
Important Safety Information
To maintain compliance with FCC RF exposure guidelines, if you wear a
handset on your body, use the 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 1.9 centimeters from your body
when transmitting. Use of non-Sprint-approved accessories may violate
FCC RF exposure guidelines.
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 SCP-8400 are:
Cellular CDMA mode (Part 22):
Head: 1.08 W/kg; Body-worn: 0.706 W/kg
PCS CDMA mode (Part 24):
Head: 1.10 W/kg; Body-worn: 1.33 W/kg

Products for 90 days after the date of its repair or replacement, whichever is
longer, SANYO will repair or replace (with new or rebuilt
parts/replacements) defective parts or Products used in the repair or
replacement of the original Product under the Limited Warranty on it.
Proof that the Product is within the warranty period in the form of a bill of
sale or warranty repair document that includes the date of purchase,
Product serial number and the authorized dealer’s name and address, must
be presented to obtain warranty service. This limited warranty is not
transferable to any third party, including but not limited to any subsequent
purchaser or owner of the Product. Transfer or resale of a Product will
automatically terminate warranty coverage with respect to it.
This limited warranty covers batteries only if battery capacity falls below
80% of rated capacity or the battery leaks. Also this limited warranty does
not cover any battery if (i) the battery has been charged by a battery charger
not specified or approved by SANYO for charging the battery, (ii) any of the
seals on the battery are broken or show evidence of tampering, or (iii) the
battery has been used in equipment other than the SANYO phone for which
it is specified.

MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE IS
LIMITED TO THE DURATION OF THIS EXPRESS WARRANTY.
