Additional information on "Test Your Satellite Phone" Week may be found
at http://www.testyoursatellitephone.com. Tips and techniques available for
satellite phone use and testing are included, such as:
-- Test your phone on a monthly basis.
-- Keep your phone's battery charged to ensure that it is ready for use
-- For maximum battery performance, allow the battery to power down
completely before fully re-charging.
-- Check to make sure that the phone's SIM card is locked in place. Users
can check this by removing the battery and ensuring that the SIM card
tray is securely positioned.
-- Use the phone outside with a clear view of the sky and the horizon.
-- Turn the phone on and ensure that the antenna is extended and rotated
-- To test your satellite phone, call 00-1-480-752-5105. The dialing
sequence is very similar to dialing an international phone call. Dial
00, then country code, and then the phone number, or press the 0 key
until a "+" appears, dial the country code, and then the phone number.
-- To hang up a call, press the red 'C' button.
