Getting Started With Data Services

With your Sprint service, you are ready to start enjoying the advantages of data services. This section will
help you learn the basics of using your data services, including managing your user name, launching a data
connection, and navigating the Web with your device.

Your User Name

When you buy your device and sign up for service, you’re automatically assigned a user name, which is
typically based on your name and a number, followed by “@sprintpcs.com.” (For example, the third John
Smith to sign up for Sprint data services might have

jsmith003@sprintpcs.com

as his user name.)

When you use Sprint data services, your user name is submitted to identify you to the Nationwide Sprint
Network. Your user name will be automatically programmed into your device. You don’t have

to enter it.

Finding Your User Name

If you aren’t sure what your user name is, you can easily find it on your device.

Data Connection Status and Indicators

Your device displays the current status of your data connection through indicators at the top of the screen.
The following symbols are used:

Your device is connected to the high-speed Sprint 3G network (EVDO). When the arrows are white, your device
is transferring data (for example, when you are opening a Web page); when the triangles are gray, your device
is connected to the network but is not currently transferring data (for example, when you are viewing a Web
page that is completely open). In either state, you can receive incoming calls.

Your device is on and is connected to the Sprint 1xRTT data network. When the arrows are white, your device is
transferring data (for example, when you are opening a Web page) and you cannot receive calls. When the arrows
are gray, your device is connected to the network but is not currently transferring data (for example, when you are
viewing a Web page that is completely open), and you can receive calls.

If you do not see an indicator, your device does not have a current data connection. To launch a connection,
see “Launching a Web Connection.”
