Getting Started
Locating Your SIM Card
Your SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) card is a small
piece of plastic located in the SIM card holder in the
back of your handset, underneath the battery.
Note: Except for making emergency calls, your
handset will not function without the SIM
card.
To prevent unauthorized use of your handset, your
SIM card can be protected by a PIN that you enter
each time the handset is powered on. You can
change the PIN or turn off the requirement that it be
entered.
Note: Your PIN is set to OFF by default.
Entering the PIN
SIM card
You may be required to enter a SIM PIN when you
first use your handset.
When you receive your handset, the SIM PIN is 0000.
Change your PIN to prevent fraudulent use of the
SIM card.
If your SIM card is not in the SIM card holder, it may
be in the box your handset came in, attached to the
SIM carrier. If this is the case, carefully detach your
SIM card from the surrounding plastic and insert it as
described in “Inserting Your SIM Card” on page 14.
SIM Card Security
Your SIM card stores all your Contacts information.
Since this information is stored on your SIM card, not
in your handset, you can remove the information by
removing your SIM card.
12
Important: If you enter your PIN incorrectly 5 times,
your SIM card is blocked. To unblock your
SIM card, you must contact TELUS
Mobility Client Care. See “Unblocking the
PIN” on page 13.

your handset.
Note: If a SIM PIN is required, your handset will
not function until the SIM PIN is entered,
except for making emergency calls.
When the PIN requirement is off, your handset can
be used without entering a PIN.
Important: When the SIM PIN requirement is off, the
personal data on your SIM card is not
protected. Anyone can use your handset
and access your personal data.
1 From the main menu, select Settings > Security >
SIM PIN.
2 Select On or Off.
3 Enter the current SIM PIN.
4 Press A under Ok.
Unblocking the PIN
If you enter your PIN incorrectly 5 times, your SIM
card is blocked. To unblock your SIM card, you must
contact your TELUS Mobility Client Care to get a PIN
Unblock Key (PUK).
Important: If you unsuccessfully enter the PUK code
10 times, your SIM card is permanently
blocked and must be replaced. If this
happens, all data is lost. You will get a
message to contact TELUS Mobility Client
Care. Except for making emergency calls,
your handset will not function with a
blocked SIM card.
To unblock the PIN:

Mike’s Direct Connect
Service
There are two ways of communicating over Mike’s
Direct Connect service:
• one-to-one using a private call
• one-to-many in a group call
Both of these methods are very similar to two-way
radio, and at a fraction of the cost of traditional
cellular. Mike’s Direct Connect also offers the Call
Alert feature, which gives recipients a notice, similar
to a ringer, that you would like to speak to them.
Tip: To let someone know that you want to talk to
him or her on a Private call, send a call alert.
See “Call Alerts” on page 19.
Every Private ID number contains 3 parts — an area
ID, a fleet ID, and a member ID — with asterisks
between each of these parts. For example:
999*999*9999.
When you place a Private call, you must enter the
entire Private ID number including the asterisks.
When you store a Private ID number in Contacts,
include the asterisks with the entire Private ID
number in case you travel with your handset, or
another Private ID user, outside of your network.

IMPORTANT: Things to Keep in Mind
GPS Enabled
Your handset’s GPS Enabled feature uses
information from Global Positioning System (GPS)
satellites orbiting the Earth to determine the
approximate geographical location of your handset,
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”
on page 69.
You can also use the GPS feature to view your
approximate location. Location information appears
on the handset’s display.
Java applications loaded on your handset can also
request your location. If your handset 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 handset
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 handset 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
• 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 handset
69
GPS Enabled
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.
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 71.
While the GPS feature of your handset 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
information and the time needed to obtain it will vary
depending on circumstances, particularly the ability
to receive signals from adequate numbers of
satellites.
70
The satellites used by the GPS feature of your
handset 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 handset.
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.
• The number of satellites used to calculate the
location. In general, more satellites make for better
accuracy.
Enhancing GPS Performance
To calculate your location again:
Press A under Rfrsh.
It may take your handset several minutes to complete
the process of determining your location. During this
time, a message usually appears on your handset’s
display saying your handset 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 handset is
calculated, the latest location information is stored in
your handset and remains there even when your
handset is powered off. You will see this information
the next time you view the Position screen.
Enhancing GPS Performance
Sometimes the GPS feature of your handset may be
unable to complete a location calculation
successfully. If this happens when you are trying to
view your location on the handset’s display, you will
see a message indicating that your handset cannot
access satellites.
To improve accuracy and increase your chances of a
successful calculation, do the following while your
handset is determining your approximate location:
• Stay in the open. The GPS feature works best
where there is nothing between your handset 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 handset’s antenna.
If you received a phone call or alert while attempting
to determine your location, the Position screen will
disappear, but your handset 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.
71
GPS Enabled
• Hold your handset to enhance reception. Signals
from GPS satellites are transmitted to your GPS
antenna, which is in your handset antenna. Hold
your handset away from your body, giving the
antenna clear access to satellite signals. Do not
cover the antenna area with your fingers or
anything else.
• In a car. When using the GPS Enabled feature in a
car, position your handset 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.
Note: Although moving your handset at a walking
pace decreases GPS performance, moving
it at the speed of a moving car does not.
• Stay in network coverage. The network will provide
your handset with information that helps determine
your location more quickly and accurately.
Setting Privacy Options
Your handset’s GPS privacy options control whether
Java applications on your handset or other software
applications may view the location of your
handset.You may set your handset to one of these
GPS privacy options.
• Stand still. If possible, stand still until your handset
is finished determining your location. Moving your
handset at a walking pace while your handset is
calculating your approximate location may
substantially decrease GPS performance.
72
Note: Privacy options do not apply to the
transmission of location information during
emergency 911 calls.
To set your GPS privacy options:
1 From the main menu, select GPS > Privacy.
2 If your GPS PIN security feature is enabled, enter
your GPS PIN. (See “Setting the GPS PIN Security
Feature” on page 73 for more information.)
Using GPS with Map Software
3 Select the privacy option you want:
• Restricted — No Java or similar software
applications may view the location of your
handset. However, location information may still
be available to the handset’s owner, fleet
manager, or account administrator.
• Unrestricted — All applications may view the
location of your handset, without notifying you.
• By Permission — When an application
attempts to view the location of your handset,
you will be prompted to give permission.
However, location information may still be
available to the handset’s owner, fleet manager,
or account administrator.
Setting the GPS PIN Security Feature
To prevent your GPS privacy settings from being
altered without your knowledge, your GPS privacy
option can be protected by a PIN.
When you receive your handset, the GPS security
feature is turned off, so you do not have to enter a
GPS PIN to access your GPS privacy options. If you
turn this feature on, you will be required to enter a
GPS PIN to access your GPS privacy options.
To turn the GPS Enabled security feature on or off:
1 From the main menu, select Settings > Security >
GPS PIN.
2 Select On or Off.
3 Enter the current GPS PIN.
Note: When you receive your handset, your GPS
PIN is 0000.
4 Press A under Ok.
To change your GPS PIN:

Using GPS with Map Software
You can use the GPS feature of your handset to
provide approximate location data to a laptop
computer or similar device that is running interactive
map software such as that made by DeLorme or
Microsoft. This way, if your handset has good access
to GPS signals, your approximate position on a map
can be made available as you travel in a vehicle.
73
GPS Enabled
To do this, connect your handset to your laptop (or
other device) with a data cable and set your handset
to transmit data (see “Getting Started” on page 74).
Your handset then provides your approximate
location to the device running the map software,
which displays your location on a map. Your handset
provides an updated location every second and the
map software displays your changing location on its
map.
Getting Started
To connect your handset to your laptop or other
device:
1 Open the flap covering the handset’s accessory
connector.
See “Enhancing GPS Performance” on page 71 for
more details on obtaining good location information.
Note: Because your handset is continuously
determining your location, using the GPS
feature of your handset with map software
uses the handset’s battery power quickly.
Software Compatibility
Your handset sends location information to your
laptop or other device using the standard National
Marine Electronics Association (NMEA) format. Your
handset supports output messages in NMEA-0183
format and supports the following NMEA-0183
sentences: GGA, GLL, GSA, GSV, RMC, and VTG.
The map software running on your laptop or other
device must support NMEA 3.0.
74
2 With the handset’s display facing up, insert the
data cable’s connector into the accessory
connector, until you hear a click.
3 Insert the data plug into the COM port of your
laptop or other device.
Make sure no other application is using the COM port
selected.

Information
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON SAFE AND
EFFICIENT OPERATION.
READ THIS INFORMATION BEFORE USING YOUR
INTEGRATED MULTI-SERVICE PORTABLE
RADIO.
RF Operational Characteristics
Your radio product contains a radio frequency
transmitter to convey the information you wish to
send as well as occasional automatic signals used to
sustain connection to the wireless network, and a
receiver which enables you to receive communication
and connection information from the network.
Portable Radio Product
Operation and EME Exposure
Your Motorola radio product is designed to comply
with the following national and international
standards and guidelines regarding exposure of
human beings to radio frequency electromagnetic
energy (EME):
94
• United States Federal Communications
Commission, Code of Federal Regulations; 47
CFR part 2 sub-part J.
• American National Standards Institute (ANSI) /
Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers
(IEEE). C95. 1-1992.
• Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers
(IEEE). C95. 1-1999 Edition.
• International Commission on Non-Ionizing
Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) 1998.
• Ministry of Health (Canada). Safety Code 6. Limits
of Human Exposure to Radiofrequency
Electromagnetic Fields in the Frequency Range
from 3 kHz to 300 GHz, 1999.
• Australian Communications Authority
Radiocommunications (Electromagnetic Radiation
- Human Exposure) Standard 2003.
• ANATEL, Brasil Regulatory Authority, Resolution
303 (July 2, 2002) "Regulation of the limitation of
exposure to electrical, magnetic, and
electromagnetic fields in the radio frequency range
between 9 kHz and 300 GHz." "Attachment to
Resolution 303 from July 2, 2002.
Portable Radio Product Operation and EME Exposure
To assure optimal radio product performance and
make sure human exposure to radio frequency
electromagnetic energy is within the guidelines
set forth in the above standards, always adhere
to the following procedures:
Phone Operation
When placing or receiving a phone call, hold your
radio product as you would a wireline telephone.
Speak directly into the microphone.
Two-way radio operation
Your radio product has been designed
and tested to comply with national and
international standards and guidelines
regarding human exposure to RF
electromagnetic energy, when operated in the
two-way mode (at the face, or at the abdomen when
using an audio accessory) at usage factors of up to
50% talk/50% listen.
Transmit no more than the rated duty factor of 50% of
the time. To transmit (talk), push the Push-To-Talk
(PTT) button. To receive calls, release the PTT
button. Transmitting 50% of the time or less, is
important because this radio generates measurable
RF energy only when transmitting (in terms of
measuring for standards compliance).
When using your radio product as a traditional
two-way radio, hold the radio product in a vertical
position with the microphone one to two inches
(2.5 to 5 cm) away from the lips.
Body-worn operation
To maintain compliance with FCC RF exposure
guidelines, if you wear a radio product on your body
when transmitting, always place the radio product in
a Motorola approved clip, holder, holster, case or
body harness for this product. Use of
non-Motorola-approved accessories may exceed
FCC RF exposure guidelines. If you do not use a
Motorola approved body-worn accessory and are
not using the radio product in the intended use
positions along side the head in the phone mode
or in front of the face in the two-way radio mode,
then ensure the antenna and the radio product
are kept the following minimum distances from
the body when transmitting
• Phone or Two-way radio mode: one inch (2.5
cm)
• Data operation using any data feature with or
without an accessory cable: one inch (2.5 cm)

Safety and General Information
ALL MODELS WITH FCC ID AZ489FT5828 MEET THE
GOVERNMENT’S REQUIREMENTS FOR EXPOSURE TO
RADIO WAVES.
Your wireless phone is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is
designed and manufactured not to exceed the emission limits
for exposure to radiofrequency (RF) energy set by the
Federal Communications Commission of the U.S.
Government. These limits are part of comprehensive
guidelines and establish permitted levels of RF energy for the
general population. The guidelines are based on standards
that were developed by independent scientific organizations
through periodic and thorough evaluation of scientific studies.
The standards include a substantial safety margin designed
to assure the safety of all persons, regardless of age and
health.
The exposure standard for wireless mobile phones employs
a unit of measurement known as the Specific Absorption
Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit set by the FCC is 1.6W/kg.1
Tests for SAR are conducted using standard operating
positions reviewed by the FCC with the phone transmitting at
its highest certified power level in all tested frequency bands.
Although the SAR is determined at the highest certified
power level, the actual SAR level of the phone 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.
Before a phone model is available for sale to the public, it
must be tested and certified to the FCC that is does not
exceed the limit established by the government-adopted
requirement for safe exposure. The tests are performed in
positions and locations (e.g., at the ear and worn on the
96
body) as required by the FCC for each model. The highest
SAR value for this model phone when tested for use at the
ear is 1.41 W/kg and when tested on the body, as described
in this user guide, is 1.45 W/kg during packet data
transmission. (Body-worn measurements differ among phone
models, depending upon available accessories and FCC
requirements.)2
While there may be differences between the SAR levels of
various phones and at various positions, they all meet the
government requirement for safe exposure.
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
http://www.fcc.gov/oet/fccid after searching on FCC ID
AZ489FT5828.
Additional information on Specific Absorption Rates (SAR)
can be found on the Cellular Telecommunications Industry
Association (CTIA) web-site at http://www.wow-com.com.
In the United States and Canada, the SAR limit for mobile
phones used by the public is 1.6 watts/kg (W/kg) averaged
over one gram of tissue. The standard incorporates a
substantial margin of safety to give additional protection for
the public and to account for any variations in
measurements.
2 The SAR information reported to the FCC includes the
FCC-accepted Motorola testing protocol, assessment
procedure, and measurement uncertainty range for this
product.

Electro Magnetic
Interference/Compatibility
Note: Nearly every electronic device is
susceptible to electromagnetic
interference (EMI) if inadequately
shielded, designed or otherwise
configured for electromagnetic
compatibility.
Facilities
To avoid electromagnetic interference and/or
compatibility conflicts, turn off your radio product in
any facility where posted notices instruct you to do
so. Hospitals or health care facilities may be using
equipment that is sensitive to external RF energy.
Aircraft
When instructed to do so, turn off your radio product
when on board an aircraft. Any use of a radio product
must be in accordance with applicable regulations
per airline crew instructions.

Safety and General Information
Medical Devices
Other Medical Devices
Pacemakers
If you use any other personal medical device, consult
the manufacturer of your device to determine if it is
adequately shielded from RF energy. Your physician
may be able to assist you in obtaining this
information.
The Advanced Medical Technology Association
(AdvaMed) recommends that a minimum separation
of 6 inches (15 cm) be maintained between a
handheld wireless radio product and a pacemaker.
These recommendations are consistent with those of
the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
Persons with pacemakers should:
• ALWAYS keep the radio product more than 6
inches (15 cm) from their pacemaker when the
radio product is turned ON.
• Not carry the radio product in a breast pocket.
• Use the ear opposite the pacemaker to minimize
the potential for interference.
• Turn the radio product OFF immediately if you
have any reason to suspect that interference is
taking place.
Hearing Aids
Some digital wireless radio products may interfere
with some hearing aids. In the event of such
interference, you may want to consult your hearing
aid manufacturer to discuss alternatives.
98
Use While Driving
Check the laws and regulations on the use of radio
products in the area where you drive. Always obey
them.
When using the radio product while driving, please:
• Give full attention to driving and to the road.
• Use hands-free operation, if available.
• Pull off the road and park before making or
answering a call if driving conditions so require.
Operational Warnings
Operational Warnings
For Vehicles with an Air Bag
!
Do not place a portable radio product in the area over
the air bag or in the air bag deployment area. Air
bags inflate with great force. If a portable radio is
placed in the air bag deployment area and the air bag
inflates, the radio product may be propelled with
great force and cause serious injury to occupants of
the vehicle.
Potentially Explosive Atmospheres
Turn off your radio product prior to entering any area
with a potentially explosive atmosphere, unless it is a
radio product type especially qualified for use in such
areas as “Intrinsically Safe” (for example, Factory
Mutual, CSA, or UL approved). Do not remove,
install, or charge batteries in such areas. Sparks in a
potentially explosive atmosphere can cause an
explosion or fire resulting in bodily injury or even
death.
Note: The areas with potentially explosive
atmospheres referred to above include
fueling areas such as below decks on
boats, fuel or chemical transfer or
storage facilities, areas where the air
contains chemicals or particles, such as
grain, dust or metal powders, and any
other area where you would normally be
advised to turn off your vehicle engine.
Areas with potentially explosive
atmospheres are often but not always
posted.
Blasting Caps and Areas
To avoid possible interference with blasting
operations, turn off your radio product when you are
near electrical blasting caps, in a blasting area, or in
areas posted: “Turn off two-way radio”. Obey all signs
and instructions.
Operational Cautions
Batteries
!
All batteries can cause property damage and/or
bodily injury, such as burns if a conductive material
such as jewelry, keys, or beaded chains touches
exposed terminals. The conductive material may
complete an electrical circuit (short circuit) and
become quite hot. Exercise care in handling any
charged battery, particularly when placing it inside a
pocket, purse, or other container with metal objects.
To reduce the risk of injury, batteries should not be
exposed to fire, disassembled, or crushed.
99
Safety and General Information
Cleaning and Drying Considerations
Using a leather carry case may help protect the
surfaces and help prevent liquids (e.g., rain) from
entering into the interior of the radio product. This
product is not water proof, and exposing the unit to
liquids may result in permanent damage to the unit.
If your radio product interior gets wet, then do not try
to accelerate drying with the use of an oven or a dryer
as this will damage the radio product and void the
warranty. Instead, do the following:
1 Immediately power off the radio product.
2 Remove Battery and SIM card (if so equipped)
from radio product.
3 Shake excess liquid from radio product.
4 Place the radio product and battery in an area that
is at room temperature and has good air flow.
5 Let the radio product, battery, and SIM card dry for
72 hours before reconnecting the battery and/or
powering on the radio product.
If the radio product does not work after following the
steps listed above, contact your dealer for servicing
information.
100
Clean the external surfaces of the radio product with
a damp cloth, using a mild solution of dishwashing
detergent and water. Some household cleaners may
contain chemicals that could seriously damage the
radio product. Avoid the use of any petroleum-based
solvent cleaners. Also, avoid applying liquids directly
on the radio product.
Accessory Safety Information
Important: Save these accessory safety instructions.
• Before using any battery or battery charger, read
all the instructions for and cautionary markings on
(1) the battery, (2) the battery charger, which may
include a separate wall-mounted power supply or
transformer, and (3) the radio product using the
battery.
• Do not expose any battery charger to water, rain,
or snow as they are designed for indoor or
in-vehicle use only.
!
Warning: To reduce the risk of injury,
charge only the rechargeable batteries
described in “Battery” on page 3
through page 5. Other types of
batteries may burst, causing personal
injury and damage.
Accessory Safety Information
• To reduce the risk of damage to the cord or plug,
pull by the plug rather than the cord when you
disconnect the battery charger from the power
source outlet.
• Do not operate any battery charger with a
damaged cord or plug — replace them
immediately.
• Battery chargers may become warm during
operation, but not hot. If it becomes hot to the
touch, unplug it from the power outlet immediately
and discontinue its use.
• Use of a non-recommended attachment to a
battery charger may result in a risk of fire, electric
shock, or injury to persons.
• Make sure the battery charger power cord is
located so that it will not be stepped on, tripped
over, or subjected to damage or stress.
• An extension cord should not be used with any
battery charger unless absolutely necessary. Use
of an improper extension cord could result in a risk
of fire and electric shock. If an extension cord must
be used, make sure that:
• The pins on the plug of the extension cord are
the same number, size, and shape as those on
the plug of the charger.
• The extension cord is properly wired and in
good electrical condition.
•
•
•
•
•
•
• The cord size is 18AWG for lengths up to 100
feet and 16AWG for lengths up to 150 feet.
Do not operate any battery charger if it has
received a sharp blow, has been dropped, or has
been damaged in any way; take it to a qualified
service technician.
Do not disassemble a battery charger; take it to a
qualified service technician when service or repair
is required. Incorrect reassembly may result in a
risk of electric shock or fire.
Maximum ambient temperature around the power
supply or transformer of any battery charger
should not exceed 40°C (104°F).
The output power from the power supply or
transformer must not exceed the rating given on
the Desktop Dual-Pocket Charger.
The disconnection from the line voltage is made by
unplugging the power supply from the AC
receptacle.
To reduce risk of electric shock, unplug any battery
charger from the outlet before attempting any
maintenance or cleaning.
For optimum charging performance, turn off the radio
product while charging it in any battery charger.
