Intended Use

The Spok Mobile application was designed to improve the quality and speed at which people communicate. Spok Mobile should not be used in the diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of illness or disease by assisting with a professional’s assessment or treatment of a patient.

This product is not a medical device and uses an unlicensed frequency band that is susceptible to interference from other devices or equipment. These external variables can interfere with cellular data and Wi-Fi internet coverage. Because of these unpredictable external factors, Spok cannot guarantee that all Spok Mobile messages will be successfully sent and received.

To help improve the reliability of the product, it is recommended that the device on which the Spok Mobile application is installed and used has cellular data coverage as well as wireless internet access as a backup. Having the suggested form of internet coverage (cellular data) as well as the backup form of internet coverage (Wi-Fi) helps improve the overall coverage if interference occurs with one of the internet connections.

Depending on how the Spok Mobile application is used, the application reserves the right to use your cellular data coverage and wireless internet.
