Important safety information
for the RIM 950 and the RIM
957
Please read these safety instructions and the operation
instructions provided in this manual and the Installation and
Getting Started Guide before operating the handheld or its
cradle. Retain these instructions for future use.
Remember to follow any special regulations governing the use of
the handheld and always switch it off in areas where radio
devices are forbidden, or when it may cause interference or
danger. Any safety laws and regulations pertaining to the use of
cell phones and two-way radios will likely apply to your use of
the handheld. We encourage you to follow such laws and
regulations at all times. In particular, please observe all
restrictions on the use of radio equipment in fuel depots (fuel
storage and distribution areas), chemical plants, where blasting
operations are in progress or in any other area in which
restrictions on radio transmissions are imposed.
The handheld is not an FAA-approved electronic device for use
on aircrafts. Switch off the handheld when in an aircraft. The
effect of the use of the handheld in an aircraft is unknown. Such
use may affect aircraft instrumentation, communication and
performance, may disrupt the network, and may be illegal.
Operation of any radio transmitting equipment, including the
handheld, may interfere with the functionality of inadequately
protected medical devices, including pacemakers. Consult a
physician or the manufacturer of the medical device if you have
any questions. Additionally, while most modern equipment is
adequately shielded from radio signals such that your handheld
will not interfere with the operation of such equipment, certain
electronic equipment, including automotive systems, may not be
shielded against the radio signals from your handheld. You
should check with the manufacturer of your motor vehicle or the
manufacturer’s representative to determine whether the use of
the handheld will present any safety issues.
Note that the Auto On/Off function on the handheld does not
affect radio operation, and the radio remains on even when the
handheld has been turned off by the Auto On/Off function.
Before entering an area where radio devices are forbidden or
may otherwise disrupt the operation of other equipment, ensure
that the radio has been turned off by turning on your handheld
and manually turning off the radio in the Home screen.
Avoid using the handheld in any environment requiring your
full attention, such as when driving a vehicle. If you need to use
your handheld while driving, have a passenger in the vehicle use
the handheld for you, or find a safe location to halt your vehicle
prior to using the handheld. Do not use the cradle as a means of
storing your handheld while in a vehicle.
WARNING
Do not use any cradle or any other accessory or attachment
that is not manufactured by RIM or supplied by RIM or an
authorized RIM accessories supplier. Use of any accessory
or attachment that is not supplied or approved for use by
RIM in conjunction with the handheld is not permitted as it
may cause hazards.
Do not place the handheld or its cradle on any unstable surface,
such as a cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table. It may fall, causing
serious injury to a child or adult, and serious damage to the
handheld.
Use only those battery types specified in the Installation and
Getting Started Guide. The use of any other batteries may disable
the handheld and may be dangerous. Use proper care when
disposing of your handheld. As the unit contains a lithium ion
cell, neither the handheld nor the lithium ion cell (nor the
alkaline (AA) battery) should be disposed of in fire. Dispose of
the handheld containing the lithium ion cell in accordance with
the laws and regulations in your area governing disposal of such
cell types. Similarly, dispose of AA batteries in a responsible
manner. Contact RIM if you have any questions concerning
disposal of the handheld, the lithium ion cell, or the AA battery.
The handheld should be operated only from the type of power
source indicated on the marking label. Power supply cords
should be routed so that they are not likely to be walked on or
pinched by items placed upon or against them, paying particular
attention to cords at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the
point where they exit from the handheld or its cradle. Do not
overload wall outlets, extension cords, or integral convenience
receptacles as this can result in a risk of fire or electric shock.
Never push objects of any kind into the handheld or cradle
through openings as they may short-out parts that could result in
a fire or electric shock. Never spill liquid of any kind on the
handheld or cradle. Do not use the handheld or cradle near water
(for example near a bathtub, or a sink, in a wet basement, near a
swimming pool, etc.). The handheld and its cradle should be
situated away from heat sources, such as radiators, heat registers,
stoves, or other products (including amplifiers) that produce
heat.
WARNING
To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not expose
the handheld or cradle to rain or moisture.
RIM 950 Wireless Handheld
Unplug the cradle from the wall and refer the handheld and
cradle for service to qualified service personnel if:

•
Begin typing; you will see that the first letter you type is
capitalized automatically and that every letter following a
Handheld User’s Guide

period becomes capitalized too. The handheld recognizes the
beginning of a new sentence and does the work for you.

have the Key Rate (Options>Screen/Keyboard) option set to
either Slow or Fast for this feature to work.
Auto punctuation
You can insert a period automatically at the end of a sentence or
word by pressing the SPACE key twice. The next letter you type will
be capitalized.
Email fields
You can type an email address in an Email field without pressing
the ALT key. Begin typing an email address; instead of pressing ALT +
L to insert the ‘@’ sign, simply press the SPACE key to do so. When
you press the SPACE key again, a ‘.’ character will be inserted.
To insert a blank space into an Email field, press BACKSPACE and
then press SPACE again. A blank space appears in the field. The next
time you press the SPACE key, the ‘@’ sign appears.
Number fields
You can type numbers in the PIN, Work, Home, Mobile, Fax, and
Pager fields without pressing the ALT key.
To type a number in one of these fields, simply press the associated
character key. For example, to display the number ‘4’, press the ‘R’
key. You can do this for all of the numeric characters and the ‘-‘, ‘+’,
‘x’ and ‘.’ characters.

Screen/Keyboard
In the Screen/Keyboard screen, you can change the LCD screen
appearance by adjusting contrast levels and font size. You can also
change the key rate and tone.
Screen Contrast: Adjust the screen’s contrast if you are having
trouble seeing the screen. The default contrast level is 14 but you can
set it anywhere between 1 and 30. If you are using the handheld in
low light, try the backlighting feature instead.
Font Size: Set the size of the font to be used on the screen. Choose
from Small Font or Large Font. The default is Large Font.
Key Tone: Set the key tone field to On if you want the handheld to
emit a tone each time a key is pressed. The default is Off.

moves whenever the BACKSPACE, ENTER, or SPACE key is pressed
and held. The default setting is Slow.

For all other keys, the Key Rate setting controls an auto
capitalization feature. With Key Rate set to either Slow or
Fast (i.e., it must be enabled), you can press and hold a key
to capitalize it.
Security
In the Security screen, you can set your password options to ensure
greater handheld security.
Password: Select whether you want to enable a password on the
handheld. The default is Disabled. Your password must be a
