Get Started
The following topics give you all the information you need to set up your phone and Sprint service for the first time.
Your Phone at a Glance
The following illustration outlines your phone’s primary features.
Set Up Your Phone
Before using your new phone, you must install and charge the battery.
Note: Your phone’s battery should have enough charge to turn the phone on and find a signal, complete the setup wizard, set up voicemail, and make a call. You should fully charge the battery as soon as possible.
Install the Battery
1. Using the slot provided, gently lift the cover off the phone.
2. Insert the battery, aligning the gold contacts on the battery with the gold contacts on the phone, and gently press the battery into place.
3. Replace the back cover, making sure all the tabs are secure and there are no gaps around the cover.
Get Started

Important: Before closing the cover, check to see if there is any foreign substance such as dust or sand between the rubber on the back of the cover and the sealing area.
Note: Water-resistant and dustproof based on IP67 rating, which tests submersion up to 1 meter for up to 30 minutes. Not shockproof. Covers must be tightly closed.
Maintaining Water and Dust Resistance
This device is rated IP67 using the Ingress Protection rating system. The dust rating is 6 (highest level of protection) and the water resistance rating is 7 (water resistant up to 1 meter for up to 30 minutes). Despite this classification, your device is not impervious to water damage in any situation. It is important that all compartments are closed tightly.
Follow these tips carefully to prevent damage to the device.
n Whenever your device gets wet, dry it thoroughly with a clean, soft cloth.
n Do not expose the device to salt water or ionized water, or to water over 1 meter deep for more than 30 minutes. If your device is exposed to salt water, wash the device with fresh water then dry thoroughly with a clean, soft cloth. Otherwise, when it dries, salt may accumulate and block the microphone, earpiece, and speaker.
n When drying off your device, be sure to pat the earpiece (top front of phone), microphone (bottom of phone), and speaker (rear of phone) with a clean, soft cloth to remove as much water as possible.
n When making a call immediately after your device is wet, the microphone may have water in it which may lower the volume that the other person will hear. After drying off the device, allow the device to air-dry before making a call.

n The back and USB/Accessory Port covers may be loosened slightly if the device is dropped or receives an impact. Ensure that all the covers are properly aligned and tightly closed. Otherwise, they may not provide protection from water and dust.
n Always keep the USB/Accessory Port cover clean and be careful to avoid damaging it.
Note: The touch screen may not be active in water.
Charge the Battery
1. On the bottom of the phone, gently lift the multipurpose jack cover to reveal the USB Charger/Accessory Port.
2. Plug the USB cable into the Charger/Accessory Port on the bottom of the phone.
3. Plug the other end of the USB cable into the Charging Head, and then plug the Charging Head into an electrical outlet to charge your battery. Fully charging a battery may take up to three hours.
Note: Your phone supports USB 3.0 and USB 2.0, and includes a USB 3.0 cable for higher data transfer speeds when connected to another USB 3.0 device. You can also use USB 2.0 cables (not included) to charge and connect your phone.
