Java Applications 2 Select the denying option you want: • Always — If the application requests access to the location of your phone again, the request is denied without notifying you. • For this session — If the application requests access to the location of your phone again before you power off your phone, the request is denied without notifying you.
GPS Enabled Your phone’s GPS Enabled feature uses information from Global Positioning System (GPS) satellites orbiting the Earth to determine the approximate geographical location of your phone, expressed as latitude and longitude. The availability and accuracy of this location information (and the amount of time that it takes to calculate it) will vary depending on the environment in which you are using the GPS feature.
GPS Enabled • When your GPS antenna is covered (for example, by your hand or other object) or facing the ground • In temperature extremes outside the operating limits of your phone Walking or driving very slowly may also substantially reduce GPS performance. Even where location information can be calculated in such situations, it may take much longer to do so, and your location estimate may...
GPS satellite signals and network assist data, it may take 30 seconds or more to determine the approximate location. This time will increase where there is reduced access to satellite signals. When your approximate location is determined, it is made available to the appropriate emergency response center.
GPS Enabled • The number of satellites used to calculate the location. In general, more satellites make for better accuracy. To calculate your location again: Press under Rfrsh. It may take your phone several minutes to complete the process of determining your location. During this time, a message usually appears on your phone’s display saying your phone is scanning for satellites.
To improve accuracy and increase your chances of a successful calculation, do the following while your phone is determining your approximate location: • Stay in the open. The GPS feature works best where there is nothing between your phone and a large amount of open sky.
GPS Enabled • Stand still. If possible, stand still until your phone is finished determining your location. Moving your phone at a walking pace while your phone is calculating your approximate location may substantially decrease GPS performance. • In a car. When using the GPS Enabled feature in a car, position your phone so that the GPS antenna has good access to GPS signals through the car’s windows.
If your satellite almanac data is out of date, your phone may prompt you to update it. Follow the instructions that appear on the phone’s display. You may be asked to go to a web site or call a customer care number. Setting Privacy Options Your phone’s GPS privacy options control whether Java applications on your phone or other software...

Hearing Aid Compatibility When some mobile phones are used with certain hearing devices (including hearing aids and cochlear implants), users may detect a noise which can interfere with the effectiveness of the hearing device. Some hearing devices are more “immune” than others to this interference noise, and mobile phones can also vary in the amount of interference noise they may generate at any given time.
Be sure to evaluate your personal needs by trying out this mobile phone with your specific hearing device, using both antenna positions if equipped with a retractable antenna. More information about hearing aid compatibility may be found at: http://commerce.motorola.com/consumer/QWhtml/ accessibility/default.html, www.fcc.gov, www.fda.gov, and www.accesswireless.org.
