1.1). Activate your phone with a Internet plan (for Boost Mobile phones, enable "web add-on" when activating). Your phone should be able to make calls and browse Internet.
1.2). Use one of the following ways to install:
1.2.1). Send a text message to your phone with the download link. After receiving the text message, go to the link to download and install.
1.2.2). Use your phone bar code reader to scan the following QR codes, or open the phone web browser and go to https://secure.accutracking.com/download/sprint/ or http://bit.ly/19ynKAU (case sensitive), then follow the screen to download and install the software.
2.1). When running for the first time, the program will ask you to provide a Tracker ID. The tracker ID is obtained from the following steps:
2.2). Go to https://secure.accutracking.com/signup.php from your computer to register (first week free trial). Then login into your account, on "Manage Units" page, choose an easy to remember nick name for your phone, click "Add" button. An ID will be generated for you.
2.3). Start AccuTracking on the phone, press the phone wheeler and select "Setup...". Move the cursor to tracker ID field, enter the tracker ID just generated, choose "Save".
2.4). To access the main menu, on the AccuTracking screen, press scroll wheel on the phone, you will see a list of menu items. To quit AccuTracking, select "Exit".
2.5). Some basic operations:
- "Setup" command will bring up the option screen to set the sending interval, Smart Sending preferences (see FAQ for more details).
- "Exit" will terminate the AccuTracking application.
3.1). With the AccuTracking application running on your phone, go to an open air place and wait a few minutes until it says 'Latitude Longitude Speed Heading Altitude' and the status line shows "Sent" with a timestamp. Your position, speed and heading data has now been sent to the server and will be sent periodically.
If you see the error message on the screen reads "Cannot connect", you don't have the right data plan from your phone carrier. See the troubleshooting section below.
