Using the Batteries
Your phone is powered by a rechargeable Li-ion 1000 mAh
standard battery.
The following batteries are also available (ask your
SAMSUNG dealer for further details):
– SLIM Battery (500 mAh)
– STANDARD Battery (1000 mAh)
– EXTENDED Battery (1600 mAh)
Precautions When Using Batteries
• Never use any charger or battery that is damaged in any
way.
• Use the battery only for its intended purpose.
• If you use the phone near the network’s base station, it
uses less power; talk and standby times are greatly affected by the signal strength on the cellular network and the
parameters set by the network operator.
• Battery charging times depend on the remaining battery
charge and the type of battery and charger used. The battery can be charged and discharged hundreds of times, but
it will gradually wear out. When the operation time (talk
time and standby time) is noticeably shorter than normal, it
is time to buy a new battery.
• Use only Samsung-approved batteries and recharge your
battery only with Samsung-approved chargers. When a
charger is not in use, disconnect it from the power source.
Do not leave the battery connected to a charger for more
than a week, since overcharging may shorten its life.
• Extreme temperatures will affect the charging capacity of
your battery: it may require cooling or warming first.
• Do not leave the battery in hot or cold places, such as in a
car in summer or winter conditions, as you will reduce the
capacity and life-time of the battery. Always try to keep
the battery at room temperature. A phone with a hot or
cold battery may temporarily not work, even when the battery is fully charged. Li-ion batteries are particularly
affected by temperatures below 0 °C (32 °F).
• Do not short-circuit the battery. Accidental short circuiting
can occur when a metallic object (coin, clip or pen) causes
a direct connection between the + and - terminals of the
battery (metal strips on the back of the battery), for example when you carry a spare battery in a pocket or bag.
Short-circuiting the terminals may damage the battery or
the object causing the short-circuit.
• Dispose of used batteries in accordance with local regulations. Always recycle. Do not dispose of batteries in a fire.
• If left unused, a fully charged battery will discharge itself
over time.

Safety Information
Road Safety
• Remember, road safety always comes first!
• Do not use a hand-held phone while driving a vehicle.
Always park the vehicle before having a conversation.
• Make sure that the phone is stored safely and will not fall
or be broken in the event of a collision or emergency stop.
• The use of an alert device to operate a vehicle’s lights or
horn on public roads is not permitted.
• Only qualified personnel should install or service the phone
in a vehicle. Faulty installation or service may be dangerous and may invalidate any warranty applicable to the unit.
• Electronic fuel injection, anti-skid braking, electronic cruise
control or any other electronic systems may malfunction
due to the lack of protection from radio signals. Check
regularly that all cellular phone equipment in your vehicle
is mounted and operating correctly.
Operating Environment
• Operation of any radio transmitting equipment, including
cellular phones, may interfere with inadequately protected
medical devices. Consult a physician or the manufacturer
of the medical device if you have any questions. Other
electronic equipment may also be subject to interference.
• As with other mobile radio transmitting equipment, you are
advised that for satisfactory operations and personal
safety, the equipment should only be used in the normal
operating position.
• Always switch off the phone when at a refuelling point
(service station). You are reminded of the need to observe
restrictions on the use of radio equipment in fuel depots
(fuel storage and distribution areas), chemical plants or
where blasting operations are in progress.
• Do not store or carry flammable liquids, gases or explosive
materials in the same compartment as the phone, its parts
or accessories.
• Switch off your cellular phone when in an aircraft. The use
of cellular phones in an aircraft is illegal and may be
dangerous to the operation of the aircraft or disrupt the
cellular network. Failure to observe these instructions may
lead to the suspension or denial of cellular telephone services to the offender, legal action or both.
• Remember to follow any special regulations in force in any
area and always switch off your phone whenever it is forbidden to use it, or when it may cause interference or danger (in a hospital for example).

Care and Maintenance
Your phone is a product of superior design and craftsmanship
and should be treated with care. The suggestions below will
help you fulfill the warranty obligations and enjoy this product
for many years.
• Keep the phone and all its parts and accessories out of the
reach of small children.
• Keep the phone dry. Precipitation, humidity and liquids containing minerals will corrode the electronic circuits.
• Do not use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents or strong
detergents to clean the phone. Wipe it with a soft cloth
slightly dampened in mild, soapy water.
• If the phone or any of its accessories are not working
properly, take them to your nearest qualified service centre.
The personnel there will assist you, and if necessary,
arrange for the phone to be repaired.

Important! This phone, like any cellular phone, uses radio
• Do not use or store the phone in dusty, dirty areas as its
components may be damaged.
• Do not store the phone in hot areas. High temperatures can
shorten the life of electronic devices, damage batteries and
warp or melt certain plastics.
signals, cellular and landline networks, as well
as user-programmed functions that cannot
guarantee connection in all conditions.
Therefore, you should never rely solely on any
cellular phone for essential communications
(medical emergencies for example).
• Do not store the phone in cold areas. When the phone
warms up (to its normal temperature), moisture can form
inside the phone, which may damage the electronic circuits.
Remember, to make or receive any calls, the phone must be
switched on and in a service area with adequate cellular
signal strength.
• Do not attempt to open the phone. Non-expert handling of
the phone may damage it.
Emergency calls may not be possible on all cellular phone
networks or when certain network services and/or phone
features are in use. Check with local cellular service
providers.
• Do not drop or knock the phone. Rough handling may
damage the internal circuits.

Glossary of Terms
Airtime - Actual time spent talking on the wireless phone.
Most carriers bill customers based on how many
minutes of airtime they use each month.
Antenna - A device for transmitting or receiving signals. The
size and shape of antennas is determined, in part,
by the frequency of the signal they receive.
Wireless phones and the base station must have
antennas.
EVRC - (Enhanced Variable Rate Codec) EVRC is a new global
standard for compressing and decompressing voice
signals. EVRC uses a lower bit rate (the number of bits
sent per second) than existing CDMA vocoders, while
providing significant improvements in voice quality.
This technology enables your phone to provide superb
voice quality while benefiting from the ability to
process more cellular voice calls using less bandwidth
than the voice codecs in CDMA networks today.
Base Station - The fixed radio transmitter/receiver that
maintains communications with mobile radio
telephones within a given area. (Typically
seen as cell or cell site)
Frequency - A measure based on time, as one or more waves
per second, in an electrical or light wave information signal. A signal’s frequency is stated in
cycles-per-second or Hertz (Hz).
CDMA - (Code Division Multiple Access) A spread-spectrum
approach to digital transmission. With CDMA, each
conversion is digitized and then tagged with a code.
The mobile phone deciphers only a particular code
to pick the right conversation off the air. The transmitted signal is just above noise level across the
available bandwidth.
Channel - Communications signals transmit along paths
called channels.
Codec - Compression & Decompression.
Deactivation - The process of rendering a wireless phone
inactive.
DTMF - (Dual-tone Modulated Frequency ) You send DTMF
signals when you enter numbers by pressing the
digit keys.
