Get
Started
All you need to know to get going.
Welcome!
Sprint is committed to developing technologies that give you the ability to
get what you want when you want it, faster than ever before. This booklet
introduces you to the basics of getting started with Sprint and your
Samsung Galaxy Victory™ 4G LTE.
Visit sprint.com/support for the complete User Guide, along with videos,
tutorials, and community forums for your phone.
Note: Available applications and services are subject to change at any time.
This Get Started guide is designed to help you set up and use your new
Samsung Galaxy Victory. It’s divided into four sections to help you find the
information you need quickly and easily.
Get Ready − page 1 − Find out what
you need to do before you use your phone
the first time, including inserting a battery
and activating Sprint service on your phone.
Android Basics − page 4 − Learn
some basics about how to move around
on your phone, use the Home screen, and
enter text. If you’re familiar with Android
phones, you can probably skip these
pages (although a refresher course never
hurt anyone).
Use Your Phone − page 11 − Take
advantage of your phone’s features and
Sprint services, from the basics (making
calls) to the more advanced (using Google
Play™ and more).
Tools & Resources − page 32 − Find
useful tips for your phone and discover
resources and other helpful Sprint
information. For additional information
including the full User Guide, videos,
tutorials, and community forums, visit
