INSTALLING A BATTERY

Your pager requires one AAA battery for power. For the best performance and longest life, we recommend an alkaline battery such as Radio Shack Cat. No. 23555.

1. Slide the battery cover latch away from the cover to unlock it, then slide the cover/belt clip in the direction of the arrow to remove it.

2.Insert a battery in the compartment slot closest to the pager’s display, according to the polarity symbols (+ and –)marked inside.

Note: For quick access when the current battery needs to be replaced, you can store an extra

AAA battery in the other slot in the compartment.

3.Replace the battery cover/belt clip and slide the latch toward the cover to lock it.

When battery power becomes low, the pager displays LO bAttErY. You have about 1 week’s battery power left when this warning first appears.

Caution: Removing the battery deletes all messages and settings (such as the time) stored in the pager’s memory. Be sure to reset the time (see “Setting the Time” on Page 10) after you replace the battery.
