YOUR MOTOROLA PF1500 PAGER
Congratulations on your purchase of Motorola's PF1500 pager. Your
pager includes at least four categories of DATACAST's®
By default, all DATACAST® Classic
updates arrive together in your News/Info Inbox. This can make it
difficult to find the information you are looking for and may force
you to scroll past unwanted information to get to the updates you

on your PF1500, you should create sub-folders under the News/Info
Inbox. Once you've done this, each topic of DATACAST®
will arrive in a separate sub-folder.

you selected. Repeat steps 1-3 above for each DATACAST®

three (the current update as well as the 2 prior) Sports Updates on
your pager at any give time. New incoming updates will replace/overwrite
the oldest update.
You must first create the sub-folders (described above) before you
