Power Saving Settings
Control your device’s data delivery and battery usage through this settings menu.
Active applications, light levels, Bluetooth usage, and GPS functionality all act to drain your
battery. The following is a list of helpful tips that can help conserve your battery power:
●
Reduce your backlight on time.
●
Turn Bluetooth off when not in use.
Settings
39
●
Turn Wi-Fi off when not in use.
●
Turn 4G off when not in use.
●
Turn off Sprint Hotspot (Wi-Fi hotspot) services when not in use. This is one of the
largest drains on your battery as it is not only transmitting a Wi-Fi connection to your
device but is also doing it while using a 4G connection.
●
Deactivate the GPS when not needed. Most applications using this function will
periodically query the GPS satellites for your current location; each query drains your
battery.
●
Do not wait until your battery is completely depleted before charging your device.
Repeating this process of a complete discharge and recharge can over time reduce the
storage capacity of any battery.
●

Get Started With Contacts
Before using Contacts, it’s best to learn a few basics.
Your device automatically sorts the Contacts entries alphabetically. You can create a Google
contact, a device contact, or a Corporate (Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync) contact.

Device contacts are stored locally on the device.

Google contacts are shared with your existing Google account and can also be imported
to your device after you have created a Google Mail account.

Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync (also known as Work or Outlook) contacts are those
contacts that are intended to be shared with either an Exchange Server or from within
Microsoft® Outlook®.

The location where the information is saved depends on the type of information and the

If you send a calendar event or contact, it is normally added directly to the corresponding
application on the receiving device. For example, if you send a calendar event to a
compatible device, the event is shown in that device’s calendar application.
●
If you send another file type to a Windows computer, it is normally saved in the
Bluetooth Exchange folder within your personal document folders.
●

On Windows XP, the path may be: C:\Documents and Settings\[your user name]\
My Documents\Bluetooth Exchange.

On Windows Vista, the path may be: C:\Users\[your user name]\Documents.
If you send a file to another device, the saved location may depend on the file type. For
example, if you send an image file to another wireless device, it may be saved in a folder
named “Images.”
