Insert SIM Card
Follow these instructions to insert a SIM card. Remember to power off your phone before inserting a
SIM card.
1. Remove the back cover.

Lift gently in the direction shown.
2. Remove the battery.

Lift upward gently as shown.
3. Insert SIM card.

Get Started
Insert gently with gold IC chip facing downward.
5
4. Insert the battery.

Align the contacts of the battery with the contacts in the phone.
5. Attach the back cover.

Make 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.
Get Started

●
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.
●
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.
SD Card

supports cards up to 64 GB. Some cards may not operate properly with your phone.
SD Card Cautions

responsible for damages from data that is lost or changed.
Reading/Writing Data: Never power off or remove Battery while reading or writing data.

Activation and Service
Before using your phone, you must set up an account with Virgin Mobile.
Starter Kit
A Starter Kit (sold separately) is needed to activate each new line of service. So if you’re activating a new
phone for yourself, you’ll need a Starter Kit for your phone PLUS a Starter Kit for each additional new line
you want to add to your account.
The Starter Kit only activates the phone and does not provide monthly service. You’ll need to pick a plan
and Top-Up for monthly service.
If you are swapping/upgrading your phone on an existing Single Line or Multi-line Data Share plan, you
do not need a Starter Kit. Call us at 844-326-1261 to change phones.

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.
