About this function guide for Samsung mobile
phones
This online guide contains common topics about features that appear in many
different models of Samsung mobile phones. Because the terms that appear in
the user interface vary from one mobile phone to the next, these topics provide
general information, but may not always match your phone exactly. However, this
online guide includes several useful topics that can help you learn about many of
the features on your mobile phone.
The topics and options in this guide are listed alphabetically, instead of being
grouped into categories. To locate a topic, look for the name of the feature,
application, or function that you wish to learn about. Inside each main topic, you
will find links to related subtopics where you can learn about additional functions
and capabilities of your mobile phone.
Near the end of this manual, you will find Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) and
Troubleshooting sections. Refer to these sections if you have any trouble using
your mobile phone.
About network services
You must obtain service from a wireless service provider to use your Samsung
mobile phone. Depending on your service provider, region, network, and local
regulations, available features and their costs may vary. To learn about available
services and their costs, contact your service provider.
Some networks may limit the functionality of some services or provide limited
support for some technologies and features. In other cases, your service provider
may have requested that a particular feature be disabled or not activated on your
device. Your device may also feature custom menu names or icons to indicate
specific services offered by your service provider. To learn more about these
features, refer to the user guide that is supplied with your mobile phone or contact
your service provider.

dictionary.

Multimedia application FAQs
Why do I get error messages when launching the camera?

power to operate the camera application. If you receive error messages when
launching the camera, try the following:

Avoid interference with pacemakers
Maintain a minimum of 15 cm (6 inches) between mobile phones and pacemakers
to avoid potential interference, as recommended by manufacturers and the
independent research group, Wireless Technology Research.
If you have any reason to suspect that your phone is interfering with a pacemaker
or other medical device, turn off the phone immediately and contact the
manufacturer of the pacemaker or medical device for guidance.
Turn off the phone in potentially explosive environments
Do not use your phone at refuelling points (service stations) or near fuels
or chemicals. Turn off your phone whenever directed by warning signs or
instructions. Your phone could cause explosions or fire in and around fuel or
chemical storage and transfer areas or blasting areas. Do not store or carry
flammable liquids, gases, or explosive materials in the same compartment as the
phone, its parts, or accessories.
Reduce the risk of repetitive motion injuries
While using your phone, hold the phone with a relaxed grip, press the keys lightly,
use special features that reduce the number of keys you have to press (such as
templates and predictive text), and take frequent breaks.
Do not use the phone if the screen is cracked or broken
Broken glass or acrylic could cause injury to your hand and face. Bring the phone
to a Samsung service centre to replace the screen. Damage caused by careless
handling will void your manufacturer’s warranty.
