Get Started
The following topics give you all the information you need to set up your phone and Virgin Mobile 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.
Getting Started

3. Replace the back cover, making sure all the tabs are secure and there are no gaps around the
cover.
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.
●
Whenever your device gets wet, dry it thoroughly with a clean, soft cloth.
●
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.
●
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.
●
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.
Getting Started

●
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.
●
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.

Activation and Service
Before using your phone, you must set up your service with Virgin Mobile. You will need your phone’s
serial number (MEID), printed on a sticker inside the battery compartment.
For more information about your Virgin Mobile account, see Virgin Mobile Account Information and Help.
Create Your Account and Pick Your Plan
Set up your Virgin Mobile account.
1. From your computer, visit virginmobileusa.com and click Activate.
2. Choose an activation option and click Next. Then enter your zip code and click Next.
3. When prompted, enter the serial number (MEID) printed on the sticker located on the back of
your phone in the battery compartment. This number can also be found on the bottom panel of
the phone’s package.
4. Follow the remaining instructions to choose your plan and select a payment method.
5. Follow the activation instructions below and you’ll be able to start using your phone.
Activate Your Phone
After setting up your account on virginmobileusa.com, simply turn your device on. Your device is
designed to activate automatically. If you are swapping from another Virgin Mobile device to a new one,
be sure to turn off the old device before swapping the serial number (MEID). Once the MEID swap is
complete, turn on the new device and the programming information will be pushed to your device
automatically.
You can also start the activation process manually.
■
From home, tap
Apps >
Settings > Activate this device.
Complete the Setup
After you turn on your phone and activate it, your phone displays a Welcome screen. From the Welcome
screen, follow the prompts to set up features and preferences on your phone.

activated on your Virgin Mobile account.

Before You Start Exercising
This app can be used to monitor your exercise. While moderate physical activity, such as brisk walking, is
safe for most people, health experts suggest that you talk with your doctor before you start an exercise
program, particularly if you have any of the following conditions:
●
Heart disease;
●
Asthma or lung disease;
●
Diabetes, or liver or kidney disease;
●
Arthritis.
You should also check with your doctor if you have symptoms suggestive of heart, lung, or other serious
disease, such as:
●
Pain or discomfort in your chest, neck, jaw, or arms during physical activity;
●
Dizziness or loss of consciousness;
●
Shortness of breath with mild exertion or at rest, or when lying down or going to bed;
●
Ankle swelling, especially at night;
●
A heart murmur or a rapid or pronounced heartbeat;
●
Muscle pain when walking upstairs or up a hill that goes away when you rest.
Finally, the American College of Sports Medicine recommends that you see your doctor before engaging
in vigorous exercise if two or more of the following apply:
●
You are a man older than age 45 or a woman older than age 55;
●
You have a family history of heart disease before age 55;
●
You smoke or quit smoking in the past six months;
●
You have not exercised for three months or more;
●
You are overweight or obese;
●
You have high blood pressure or high cholesterol;
●
You have impaired glucose tolerance, also called pre-diabetes.
When in Doubt– Check it Out
If you are unsure of your health status, have several health problems, or are pregnant, you should speak
with your doctor before starting a new exercise program. Working with your doctor ahead of time is a
good way to plan an exercise program that is right and safe for you. Consider it the first step on your path
to physical fitness.
