Get Started
The following topics give you all the information you need to set up your phone and Sprint service the
first time.
Your Phone at a Glance
The following illustration outlines your phone’s primary features.
Get Started
1
Set Up Your Phone
Before using your new phone, you must install and charge the battery. If desired, you may also take the
opportunity to install an optional memory card (not included).
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.
Remove the Back Cover
Carefully remove the back cover from the phone.
1. Remove the back cover using the slot in the upper left corner of your phone.
2. Carefully lift the cover.
Warning: Do not bend or twist the back cover excessively. Doing so may damage the cover.
Get Started
2
Install a Memory Card (Optional)
You can use an optional microSD or microSDHC memory card (not included) to expand available
memory space.
■
Carefully slide the memory card into the memory card socket (as shown) until the card locks into
place. Make sure that the card’s gold contacts face into the phone and that the card is positioned
as shown.
Install the Battery

Charge the Battery
For fastest charging times, use the Adaptive Fast Charging charger that came with your phone. This
charger provides faster charging only when connected to devices that have Adaptive Fast Charging.
3. Plug the USB cable into the Charger/Accessory Port on the bottom of the phone.
4. Plug the other end of the USB cable into the Adaptive Fast Charging charger, and then plug the
charger into an electrical outlet to charge your battery.
Activate Your Phone
Follow the instructions below to activate your phone if it has not already been activated. Depending on
your account or how and where you purchased your phone, it may be ready to use or you may need to
activate it on your Sprint account.
●
If you purchased your phone at a Sprint Store, it is probably activated and ready to use.
●
If you received your phone in the mail and it is for a new Sprint account or a new line of service, it
is designed to activate automatically.

●
When you turn the phone on for the first time, you should see a Hands Free Activation
screen, which may be followed by a PRL Update screen and a Firmware Update screen.
Follow the onscreen instructions to continue.
If you received your phone in the mail and you are activating a new phone for an existing number
on your account (you’re swapping phones), you can activate on your computer online or directly
on your phone.


•
Get Started

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.
Tools and Calendar
116
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 prediabetes.
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.
