Getting Started With Sprint PCS Service

Determining if Your Phone is Already Activated

If you purchased your phone at a Sprint Store, it is probably activated, unlocked, and ready to use. If you received your phone in the mail, it probably has been activated; all you need to do is unlock it.

If your phone is not activated, please refer to the activation card included with your phone.

Unlocking Your Phone

To unlock your phone, follow these easy steps:

1.Press to turn the phone on.

2.Press Unlock ().

Note: To select a softkey, press the softkey button directly below the softkey text that appears at the bottom left and bottom right of your phone’s display screen. Softkey actions change according to the screen you’re viewing and will not appear if there is no corresponding action available.

3.Enter your four-digit lock code. (For security purposes, the code is not visible as you type.)

Tip: If you can’t recall your lock code, try using the last four digits of either your Social Security number or Sprint PCS Phone number or try 0000 or NATL (6285). If none of these work, call Sprint Customer Service at 1-888-211-4PCS (4727).

Section 1A: Setting Up Service

Setting Up Your Voicemail

All unanswered calls to your Sprint PCS Phone are automatically transferred to your voicemail, even if your phone is in use or turned off. Therefore, you will want to set up your voicemail and personal greeting as soon as your Sprint PCS Phone is activated.

1. From standby mode, press and hold .

2.Follow the system prompts to:

Create your passcode

Record your name announcement

Record your greeting

Choose whether or not to activate One-Touch Message Access (a feature that lets you access

messages simply by pressing and holding , bypassing the need for you to enter your passcode)

Note: Voicemail Passcode

If you are concerned about unauthorized access to your voicemail account, Sprint recommends you enable your voicemail passcode.

Sprint PCS Account Passwords

As a Sprint PCS customer, you enjoy unlimited access to your personal account information, your voicemail account, and your Sprint PCS Vision or Sprint Power Vision account. To ensure that no one else has access to your information, you will need to create passwords to protect your privacy.

Your default account password is the last four digits of your Social Security number. If you are not the account owner (if someone else receives the invoice for your Sprint PCS Service), you can get a sub-account password at www.sprint.com.

Voicemail Password

You'll create your voicemail password (or passcode) when you set up your voicemail. See “Setting Up Your Voicemail” on page 170 for more information on your voicemail password.

Sprint PCS Vision or Sprint Power Vision Password

With your A920 by Samsung, you may elect to set up a Sprint PCS Vision or Sprint Power Vision Password. This optional password may be used to authorize purchase of Premium Services content and to protect personal information on multi-phone accounts.

Using Your Phone’s Battery and Charger

Warning! Use only Sprint-approved or manufacturer-approved batteries and chargers with your Sprint PCS Phone. The failure to use a Sprint-approved or manufacturerapproved battery and charger may increase the risk that your Sprint PCS Phone will overheat, catch fire, or explode, resulting in serious bodily injury, death, or property damage.

Sprintor manufacturer-approved batteries and accessories can be found at Sprint Stores or through your phone’s manufacturer, or call 1-866-343-1114 to order. They’re also available at www.sprint.com – click on the Shopping tab at the top, then look under Phones & Accessories.

Battery Capacity

Your Sprint PCS Phone is equipped with a Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) battery. It allows you to recharge your battery before it is fully drained. The battery provides up to 3.5 hours of continuous digital talk time.

When the battery reaches 5% of its capacity, the battery icon blinks. When there are approximately two minutes of talk time left, the phone sounds an audible alert and then powers down.

Note: Long backlight settings, searching for service, vibrate mode, Bluetooth, and browser use affect the battery’s talk and standby times.

Tip: Be sure to watch your phone’s battery level indicator and charge the battery before it runs out of power.

Keeping track of your battery’s charge is important. If your battery level becomes too low, your phone automatically turns off and you will lose all the information you were just working on. For a quick check of your phone’s battery level, glance at the battery charge indicator located in the upperright corner of your phone’s display screen. If the battery charge is getting too low, the battery icon() blinks and the phone sounds a warning tone.

Always use a Sprint-approved desktop charger, travel charger, or vehicle power adapter to charge your battery.

Warning! Using the wrong battery charger could cause damage to your phone and void the warranty.

Using the Travel Charger

To use the travel charger provided with your phone:

Plug the round end of the AC adapter into the phone’s power interface connector and the other end into an electrical outlet.

A red indicator light on the phone lets you know the battery is charging.

An on-screen indicator lets you know that the battery is charged.

It takes about three hours to fully recharge a completely rundown battery.

WARNING

911 Emergency Calling

 

Sprint recommends that TTY users make emergency

 

calls by other means, including Telecommunications

 

Relay Services (TRS), analog cellular, and landline

 

communications. Wireless TTY calls to 911 may be

 

corrupted when received by public safety answering

 

points (PSAPs), rendering some communications

 

unintelligible. The problem encountered appears

 

related to TTY equipment or software used by PSAPs.

 

This matter has been brought to the attention of the

 

FCC, and the wireless industry and PSAP community

 

are currently working to resolve this.

Controlling Roaming Charges Using Call Guard

Roaming is the ability to make or receive calls when you’re off the Nationwide Sprint PCS Network. Your new digital dual-band A920 by Samsung® works anywhere on the Nationwide Sprint PCS Network and allows you to roam on other 1900 and 800 MHz digital networks where we’ve implemented roaming agreements with other carriers.

This section explains how roaming works as well as special features that let you manage your roaming experience.

Understanding Roaming

Recognizing the Roaming Icon on the Display Screen

Your phone’s display screen always lets you know when you’re off the Nationwide Sprint PCS Network. Any time you

are roaming, the phone displays the roaming icon ().

Tip: Remember, when you are using your phone off the Nationwide Sprint PCS Network, always dial numbers using 11 digits (1 + area code + number).

Note: Unless your Sprint PCS Service Plan includes roaming, you will pay a higher per-minute rate for roaming calls.

Roaming on Other Digital Networks

When you’re roaming on digital networks, your call quality and security will be similar to the quality you receive when making calls on the Nationwide Sprint PCS Network.

However, you may not be able to access certain features, such as Sprint PCS Vision or Sprint Power Vision.

Note: If you’re on a call when you leave the Nationwide Sprint PCS Network and enter an area where roaming is available, your call is dropped. If your call is dropped in an area where you think Sprint PCS Service is available, turn your phone off and on again to reconnect to the Nationwide Sprint PCS Network.
