Palm 750 Cell Phone User Manual

9 Use your Treo 750 to help others in emergencies. Your Treo 750
provides you a perfect opportunity to be a “good Samaritan” in
your community. If you see an auto accident, crime in progress,
or other serious emergency where lives are in danger, call 9-1-1,
as you would want others to do for you.
10 Call roadside assistance or a special wireless non-emergency
assistance number when necessary. Certain situations you
encounter while driving may require attention, but are not urgent
enough to merit a call to 9-1-1. But you can still use your Treo 750
to lend a hand. If you see a broken-down vehicle posing no
serious hazard, a broken traffic signal, a minor traffic accident
where no one appears injured, or a vehicle you know to be
stolen, call roadside assistance or other special non-emergency
wireless number.
Digital Wireless Phones to be Compatible with Hearing Aids On
July 10, 2003, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)
modified the exemption for wireless phones under the Hearing Aid
Compatibility Act of 1988. This means that wireless phone
manufacturers and service providers must make digital wireless
phones accessible to individuals who use hearing aids.
For more information, please go to the FCC’s Consumer Alert on
accessibility of digital wireless phones at
Wireless telephones are hand-held phones with built-in antennas,
often called cell, mobile, or PCS phones. These phones are popular
with callers because they can be carried easily from place to place.
Wireless telephones are two-way radios. When you talk into a
wireless telephone, it picks up your voice and converts the sound to
radio frequency energy (or radio waves). The radio waves travel
through the air until they reach a receiver at a nearby base station.
The base station then sends your call through the telephone network
until it reaches the person you are calling.
When you receive a call on your wireless telephone, the message
travels through the telephone network until it reaches a base station
close to your wireless phone. Then the base station sends out radio
waves that are detected by a receiver in your telephone, where the
signals are changed back into the sound of a voice.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the Food and
Drug Administration (FDA) each regulate wireless telephones. FCC
ensures that all wireless phones sold in the United States follow
safety guidelines that limit radio frequency (RF) energy. FDA monitors
the health effects of wireless telephones. Each agency has the
authority to take action if a wireless phone produces hazardous levels
of RF energy.
FDA derives its authority to regulate wireless telephones from the
Radiation Control provisions of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic
Act (originally enacted as the Radiation Control for Health and Safety
Act of 1968). [
FCC derives its authority to regulate wireless telephones from the
National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) and the
Telecommunications Act of 1996
