INTRODUCTION

Your Tracker Alphanumeric Pager lets you keep in touch with the office and with family and friends anywhere around town. It can store up to 16 alphanumeric messages (or a maximum of 640 characters) and alerts you with either a gentle vibration, a vibration and single beep, a melody, or one of two beep patterns. The pager also has these features:

Clock — displays the current date and time when you are not viewing a message, and lets you change the time (12or24-hour)and date (M/D/Y or D/M/Y) display formats.

Daily Alarm — lets you set the pager to sound an alarm at a set time each day.

Message Protect — lets you protect up to eight messages from accidental deletion.

GETTING STARTED

SUBSCRIBING TO SERVICE

You must subscribe to paging service through MobileComm before you can start receiving messages.

To activate your pager, call MobileComm or its associated carrier at the telephone number listed in the activation instructions provided with your pager’s activation packet.

INSTALLING A BATTERY

Your pager requires one AAA battery. For the best performance and longest life, we recommend an alkaline battery, such as RadioShack Cat. No. 23-555.

Caution: Always use a fresh battery of the required size and type.

When battery power becomes low, the pager sounds an alert every few seconds, Change Battery appears, andflashes on the display. Press any button to stop the alert. Depending on how often you use the pager, you should have about 3 days of battery power left when this low battery alert first occurs.

Notes:

If you press a button to stop the alert, the pager displays(andChange Battery instead of the time on the standby display) until you replace the battery.

The pager’s built-inmemory stores messages and settings for at least 2 minutes while you change the battery or after the battery loses power.

Always dispose of old batteries promptly and properly; do not burn or bury them.
