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.
