INSTALLING THE BATTERY

Your pager requires one AAA battery. For the best performance, we recommend an alkaline battery, such as Radio Shack Cat. No. 23-555.

1.Slide the battery compartment lock up and slide the battery door in the direction of the arrow. The pager’s door hinges open. If you accidentally lift it so far that it pops off of the pager, simply snap it back into place.

2.Insert the battery’s positive end first, as indicated by the polarity symbol (+) marked outside the compartment.

3

17-7021.fmPage 4 Wednesday, July 21, 1999 5:13 PM

3.Close the battery door and slide the battery compartment lock down to secure it.

Notes:

To conserve battery power, turn the pager off when you are not using it.

The battery should provide about 850 to 950 hours of continuous use.

A low battery alert sounds and the pager displays LO CELL when the battery’s power is low. When this occurs, replace the battery.

Notes:

To save battery power, all pager alerts change to 2 seconds in length when battery power is low.

When you replace the battery, the pager keeps all messages and the time and date.

PAGER IDEAS

Give your pager number to friends and family. When they call your pager number, they can use their phone’s touch-tonekeypad to enter the number where you can reach them. Your pager displays this number when you receive the page. You are in touch wherever you go in your PageMart coverage area.

Include your pager number on your telephone answering machine greeting. This way you can immediately receive important messages.

Leave your pager number at your children’s school and with the babysitter so you can always be reached in an emergency.

Establish code messages with your family and friends. For example, your children can page you with the code 3333 to tell you they got home from school. Your spouse can send 07734 to say hello! (Read itupside-down.)

If you have a cellular phone, give out your pager number instead of your cellular number. Then you can decide who to call back on your cellular phone, without paying for incoming cellular calls. This can drastically reduce your monthly cellular bill.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE

Keep the pager dry. If it gets wet, wipe it dry immediately. Liquids can contain minerals that corrode the electronic circuits.

Use and store the pager only in normal temperature environments. Temperature extremes can shorten the life of electronic devices and distort or melt plastic parts.

Handle the pager gently and carefully. Dropping it can damage circuit boards and cases and can cause the pager to work improperly.

Keep the pager away from dust and dirt, which can cause premature wear of parts.

Wipe the pager with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it looking new. Do not use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, or strong detergents to clean the pager.
