3. Use the navigation keys to select the setting you want to change. The following options are available:
Choice Lists: If Voice Signal is not absolutely confident that
it has correctly identified a name or number, it can display a choice list of up to three possibilities, and prompt you to
confirm the correct one. You can control when choice lists appear by changing the Choice Lists setting to the following: Automatic: Voice Signal displays a choice list when it is not confident it has identified the correct choice from among multiple alternatives. Always On: When there are multiple alternatives, Voice Signal always displays a choice list. Always Off: Voice Signal never displays a choice list. Instead, the application picks the best from among the possible choices. Sensitivity: In Voice Signal, sensitivity controls the balance between rejecting too much, which means the phone frequently does not recognize names, numbers, or commands, and rejecting too little, which means it frequently recognizes something even if nothing was said. When Voice Signal rejects an utterance, it displays a message such as Please repeat or No match found. If you frequently experience these messages, you might be able to get better recognition by adjusting the Sensitivity setting toward Reject Less. If you frequently experience false activations (Voice Signal detects a wrong match), you might be able to get better performance by adjusting the Sensitivity setting toward Reject More. Digit Dialing: Use the Digit Dialing menu to adapt digit dialing to your voice. Adapt Digits: Lets you adapt digits, which can improve voice recognition of phone numbers. Adaptation takes about 60 seconds. Reset Digits: Erases any digit adaptation you have done and resets digit recognition to the factory default. If you have not adapted digits, this option is grayed out. Sound: You can customize the Voice Signal user interface by turning playback on or off for prompts, names, and numbers.
You can also change the speed and volume of name playback. Prompts: Turns playback on or off for prompts such as Please say a command. Digits: Turns playback on or off for digits, for example, when confirming a phone number. Names: Turns playback on or off for names. Name Settings: Adjusts the speed and volume of name playback. About: Displays information about VoiceSignal including version number, build number, and device number.
You can also access the Voice Signal Settings menu by following these steps: 1. In standby mode, press and hold 2. Press the left soft key Settings. for two seconds.
3. Use the navigation keys to select the setting you want to change.
Voice dialing works well for most people without special adaptation. However, people with strong accents or unique voice characteristics may receive better results after adapting the system to match their voices. You should adapt Digit Dial only if the system is frequently unable to recognize your speech. After you adapt Digit Dial, your phone is customized to your voice, and your voice only. Others will not be able to use it unless they reset the phone to factory defaults.
Adaptation involves recording several digit sequences to adapt the system to the unique properties of your voice. The adaptation process takes about three minutes. Tips for adapting Digit Dial
Adapt digits in a quiet place. Make sure you wait for the beep before starting to speak. Speak clearly, and say each digit distinctly. If you make a mistake while recording a sequence of digits, or if
there is an unexpected noise that spoils the recording, rerecord that sequence.
Only adapt digits if you regularly have problems with digit
dialing. Once adapted, digit dialing will not work as well for other people using your phone.
Adapt Digit Dial to your Voice

5. A short description of the Adapt Digits displays. 6. Read the description until you are comfortable to proceed, then press. 7. Your phone displays the first digit sequence and Please say plays through the speaker followed by the four digits appearing in the display.
Wait for the beep and repeat the digits using your normal tone of voice. 8. After a moment, the phone plays back the recording and prompts Did the recording sound ok? If the recording was good, say Yes. If you need to re-record, say No. If you say No, the phone prompts you to pronounce the digits again. Wait for the beep and then re-record. Repeat this step until youre satisfied with the recording. 9. After confirming that the recording sounds ok, repeat the recording process with the next set of digits. After ten sets of digits, the phone indicates that adaptation is complete. Reset Digit Dial Adaptation This option erases an adaptation and resets Digit Dial to its original state. 1. At the standby screen, press MENU. Use the right navigation key to highlight SETTINGS & TOOLS. 2. Press 3. Press Tools, then Voice Services. Digit Dialing. Train Word, then

What is FDA's role concerning the safety of wireless phones?
Under the law, FDA does not review the safety of radiation-emitting consumer products such as wireless phones before they can be sold, as it does with new drugs or medical devices. However, the agency has authority to take action if wireless phones are shown to emit radio frequency energy (RF) at a level that is hazardous to the user. In such a case, FDA could require the manufacturers of wireless phones to notify users of the health hazard and
to repair, replace or recall the phones so that the hazard no longer exists. Although the existing scientific data do not justify FDA regulatory actions, FDA has urged the wireless phone industry to take a number of steps, including the following:
Support needed research into possible biological effects of RF
of the type emitted by wireless phones;
Design wireless phones in a way that minimizes any RF
exposure to the user that is not necessary for device function; and
Cooperate in providing users of wireless phones with the best
possible information on possible effects of wireless phone use on human health.
FDA belongs to an interagency working group of the federal agencies that have responsibility for different aspects of RF safety to ensure coordinated efforts at the federal level. The following agencies belong to this working group:
National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health Environmental Protection Agency Federal Communications Commission Occupational Safety and Health Administration National Telecommunications and Information Administration
The National Institutes of Health participates in some interagency working group activities, as well. FDA shares regulatory responsibilities for wireless phones with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). All phones that are sold in the United States must
comply with FCC safety guidelines that limit RF exposure. FCC relies on FDA and other health agencies for safety questions about wireless phones. FCC also regulates the base stations that the wireless phone networks rely upon. While these base stations operate at higher power than do the wireless phones themselves, the RF exposures that people get from these base stations are typically thousands of times lower than those they can get from wireless phones. Base stations are thus not the primary subject of the safety questions discussed in this document.
What are the results of the research done already?
The research done thus far has produced conflicting results, and many studies have suffered from flaws in their research methods. Animal experiments investigating the effects of radio frequency energy (RF) exposures characteristic of wireless phones have yielded conflicting results that often cannot be repeated in other laboratories. A few animal studies, however, have suggested that low levels of RF could accelerate the development of cancer in laboratory animals. However, many of the studies that showed increased tumor development used animals that had been genetically engineered or treated with cancer-causing chemicals so as to be pre-disposed to develop cancer in absence of RF exposure. Other studies exposed the animals to RF for up to 22 hours per day. These conditions are not similar to the conditions under which people use wireless phones, so we don't know with certainty what the results of such studies mean for human health.
Do wireless phone accessories that claim to shield the head from RF radiation work?
Since there are no known risks from exposure to RF emissions from wireless phones, there is no reason to
Section 12: Health and Safety Information 165
believe that accessories that claim to shield the head from those emissions reduce risks. Some products that claim to shield the user from RF absorption use special phone cases, while others involve nothing more than a metallic accessory attached to the phone. Studies have shown that these products generally do not work as advertised. Unlike "hand-free" kits, these so-called "shields" may interfere with proper operation of the phone. The phone may be forced to boost its power to compensate, leading to an increase in RF absorption. In February 2002, the Federal trade Commission (FTC) charged two companies that sold devices that claimed to protect wireless phone users from radiation with making false and unsubstantiated claims. According to FTC, these defendants lacked a reasonable basis to substantiate their claim.
What about wireless phone interference with medical equipment?
Radio frequency energy (RF) from wireless phones can interact with some electronic devices. For this reason, FDA helped develop a detailed test method to measure electromagnetic interference (EMI) of implanted cardiac pacemakers and defibrillators from wireless telephones. This test method is now part of a standard sponsored by the Association for the Advancement of Medical instrumentation (AAMI). The final draft, a joint effort by FDA, medical device manufacturers, and many other groups, was completed in late 2000. This standard will allow manufacturers to ensure that cardiac pacemakers and defibrillators are safe from wireless phone EMI. FDA has tested wireless phones and helped develop a
voluntary standard sponsored by the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE). This standard specifies test methods and performance requirements for hearing aids and wireless phones so that no interference occurs when a person uses a compatible phone and a compatible hearing aid at the same time. This standard was approved by the IEEE in 2000. FDA continues to monitor the use of wireless phones for possible interactions with other medical devices. Should harmful interference be found to occur, FDA will conduct testing to assess the interference and work to resolve the problem. Additional information on the safety of RF exposures from various sources can be obtained from the following organizations:
Getting the Most Out of Your Signal Reception
The quality of each call you make or receive depends on the signal strength in your area. Your phone informs you of the current signal strength by displaying a number of bars next to the signal strength icon. The more bars displayed, the stronger the signal. If you're inside a building, being near a window may give you better reception.
Understanding the Power Save Feature
If your phone is unable to find a signal after 15 minutes of searching, a Power Save feature is automatically activated. If your phone is active, it periodically rechecks service availability or you can check it yourself by pressing any key. Anytime the Power Save feature is activated, a message displays on the screen. When a signal is found, your phone returns to standby mode.
Understanding How Your Phone Operates
Your phone is basically a radio transmitter and receiver. When it's turned on, it receives and transmits radio frequency (RF) signals. When you use your phone, the system handling your call controls the power level. This power can range from 0.006 watts to 0.2 watts in digital mode.
Section 12: Health and Safety Information 177
Maintaining Your Phone's Peak Performance
For the best care of your phone, only authorized personnel should service your phone and accessories. Faulty service may void the warranty. There are several simple guidelines to operating your phone properly and maintaining safe, satisfactory service.
If your phone is equipped with an external antenna, hold the
phone with the antenna raised, fully-extended and over your shoulder.
Do not hold, bend or twist the phone's antenna, if applicable. Do not use the phone if the antenna is damaged. If your phone is equipped with an internal antenna, obstructing
the internal antenna could inhibit call performance.
Speak directly into the phone's receiver. Avoid exposing your phone and accessories to rain or liquid
spills. If your phone does get wet, immediately turn the power off and remove the battery. If it is inoperable, call Customer Care for service.
Availability of Various Features/Ring Tones
Many services and features are network dependent and may require additional subscription and/or usage charges. Not all features are available for purchase or use in all areas. Downloadable Ring Tones may be available at an additional cost. Other conditions and restrictions may apply. See your service provider for additional information.
