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 Sprint PCS Phone number or try 0000
or NATL (6285). If none of these work, call Sprint Customer Service at:
1-888-211-4PCS (4727).

Setting UpYour Voicemail
All unanswered calls to your Sprint PCS Phone are
automatically transferred to your voicemail, even if your
phone is in use or turned off. Therefore, you will want to
set up your voicemail and personal greeting as soon as your
Sprint PCS Phone is activated.
To set up your voicemail:
1. Press and hold
.
2. Follow the system prompts to:
Create your pass code
Record your greeting
Record your name announcement
Choose whether or not to activate One-Touch
Message Access (a feature that lets you access
messages simply by pressing and holding
,
bypassing the need for you to enter your pass code)
Note: If you are concerned about unauthorized access to your voicemail
account, Sprint recommends you enable your voicemail pass code.

Voicemail”on page 246.

TTY UseWith Sprint PCS Service
A TTY (also known as a TDD or TextTelephone) is a
telecommunications device that allows people who are
deaf, hard of hearing, or who have speech or language
disabilities, to communicate by telephone.
Your Phone’s Settings
Your phone is compatible with select TTY devices. Please check
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 Sprint
Customer Service via the state Telecommunications Relay
Service (TRS) by first dialing
. Then
provide the state TRS with this number: 866-727-4889.

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 Call Guard
Roaming
Roaming is the ability to make or receive calls when you’re off
the Nationwide Sprint PCS Network.Your new Sprint Power
Vision Multimedia Phone MM-7500 by Sanyo works
anywhere on the Nationwide Sprint PCS Network and
allows you to roam on 1900 and 800 MHz digital networks
where we’ve implemented roaming agreements with other
carriers.
This section explains how roaming works as well as special
features that let you manage your roaming experience.
Section 2D: Controlling Your Roaming Experience
101
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 and data services.
Roaming on Other Digital Networks
When you’re roaming on 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 or data service when you leave the Nationwide
Sprint PCS Network and enter an area where roaming is available , your call is
dropped or your data is clicked off. If the data service is clicked off in a
roaming area, access the service again to reconnect. 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.

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
period of time.

SprintTV FAQs
1. How does my phone’s SprintTV Service differ from
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. 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
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: Multimedia Service does not work where service is unavailable.

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.
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 Channel Listings, the
purchased channel title and corresponding number will
appear in the My Channels section.
7. Why are some channels already pre-loaded 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, am I still able to
view the multimedia clips?
Yes; for information about service access charges, please
visit www.sprint.com.
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.
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.
240
Section 2L: Using Your Phone’s Built-in Media Player
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 Sprint TV 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.

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 key 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 key to scroll through
the different channels. Once you find a channel that you

Safety
Part of getting the most out of your Sprint PCS Phone is
learning how the phone works and how to care for it.This
section outlines performance and safety guidelines that
help you understand the basic features of your phone’s
operation.
Section 4A: Safety
313
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 signal 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 the 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 active, it
periodically rechecks service availability; you can also check it yourself by
pressing any key. Anytime the Power Save feature is activated, a message is
displayed 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 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 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).
314
Section 4A: Safety
Maintaining Your Phone’s Peak Performance
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.
Note: For the best care of your phone, only Sprint authorized personnel should service
your phone and accessories. Faulty service may void the warranty.
Safety

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 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
ABC
the Sprint PCS Accessory Hotline at 1-800-974-2221 or by dialing Space

on your Sprint PCS Phone.
SM
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.
316
Section 4A: Safety
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:
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.
Safety
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 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: Safety
317
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-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.
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.
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 (LiIon) Batteries
For safe disposal options of your LiIon 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.
Note: For safety, do not handle a damaged or leaking LiIon battery.
318
Section 4A: Safety
Acknowledging Special Precautions and
the FCC Notice
FCC Notice
This 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. This device has been tested and
found to comply with part 15 of the FCC rules. Operation is subject to the
condition that this device does not cause harmful interference.
Vehicles using liquefied petroleum gas (propane or butane) must comply
with the National Fire Protection Standard (NFPA-58). For a copy of this
standard, contact the National Fire Protections 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 void the phone warranty if said accessories cause damage
or a defect to the phone.
Body-Worn Operation
To maintain compliance with FCC RF exposure guidelines, if you wear a
handset on your body, use the Sprint 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 1.9 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.
Section 4A: Safety
319
Safety
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.
Specific Absorption Rates (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.
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 MM-7500 are:
Cellular CDMA mode (Part 22):
Head: 0.989 W/kg; Body-worn: 0.756 W/kg
PCS CDMA mode (Part 24):
Head: 0.796 W/kg; Body-worn: 0.769 W/kg
FCC Radiofrequency Emission
This phone meets the FCC Radiofrequency Emission Guidelines.
FCC ID number: AEZSCP-75H. More information on the phone’s SAR can be
found from the following FCC Website: http://www.fcc.gov/oet/fccid.
