Direct Wave Receiver
The phone is equipped with a “Direct Wave Receiver” which transmits sound by vibrating the display area. You can call without needing to worry about where to place your phone although there is no hole in the receiver. We recommend the following usage for better hearing.
Hold the Phone to Your Ear
Hold the receiver so that it covers your ear as much as possible and blocks out surrounding noise for clearer sound. Adjust the position of the phone up, down, left or right to suit your hearing and the surrounding environment.
Direct Wave Receiver Cautions
Do not put a sticker, sheet, etc. on the display. The other party’s voice may become hard to hear.
n Make sure not to cover the mic with your finger etc. when you talk on the phone.
n When an earphone (commercially available) is connected to the phone, sound is from the earphone instead of the Direct Wave Receiver.

Reading/Writing Data: Never power off while reading or writing data.
SD cards used on other mobile phones: A message indicating there is app data on the SD card may appear if the SD card was used on another mobile phone (a device prior to model upgrade, etc.). First transfer the data on the SD card to your phone with the following steps to use the data.

l If there are folders and files with the same names in phone memory as on the SD card, a prompt appears for whether to overwrite folders/files. Use adequate caution, as overwritten data in phone memory cannot be restored.
Battery Level: A low battery charge may prevent reading/writing to the SD card.
Phone memory: By default, pictures, videos, and other media files captured on your phone are saved in phone memory. Applications (third-party) you download may indicate that files are saved to an SD card, however, they are saved to your phone’s memory.

Connectivity
The following topics address your phone’s connectivity options, including USB file transfer and tethering, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth®, and more.
Connections Optimizer
The Connections Optimizer is a tool that automatically selects the best mobile network for your phone, including “remembered” Wi-Fi networks.
About Connections Optimizer
The Connections Optimizer helps you manage and enhance your data experience by finding and connecting to “remembered” Wi-Fi networks on your phone. Remembered Wi-Fi networks are networks with which you have previously chosen to connect. Active Wi-Fi connections may offer improved performance and generally improve battery life while allowing you to talk on the phone and use data at the same time. The Connections Optimizer works by searching for available “remembered” Wi-Fi networks. If you do not leave your Wi-Fi antenna on all the time, you will only notice the Connections Optimizer operating at certain times of the day in a small number of locations on the network. Your Wi-Fi antenna will conserve battery by scanning for connections periodically (not continuously), and if no connection is achieved, the antennas will be turned off. You may also manually turn the antennas off during the scan period. To facilitate quality assurance and enable feature enhancements, information is collected about your battery levels, Wi-Fi and network connections and usage. No personal information is collected.
Enable Connections Optimizer
1. From home, touch Connections. Connectivity

TTY Mode
A TTY (teletypewriter, also known as a TDD or Text Telephone) is a telecommunications device that allows people who are deaf, hard of hearing, or who have speech or language disabilities, to communicate by telephone.
Your phone is compatible with select TTY devices. Please check with the manufacturer of your TTY device to ensure that it supports digital wireless transmission. Your phone and TTY device will connect using a special cable that plugs into your phone’s headset jack. If this cable was not provided with your TTY device, contact your TTY device manufacturer to purchase the connector cable.
To turn TTY Mode on or off:
1. From home, touch Settings

Warning: 9-1-1 Emergency Calling
It is recommended that TTY users make emergency calls by other means, including Telecommunications Relay Services (TRS), analog cellular, and landline communications. Wireless TTY calls to 9-1-1 may be corrupted when received by public safety answering points (PSAPs), rendering some communications unintelligible. The problem encountered appears related to TTY equipment or software used by PSAPs. This matter has been brought to the attention of the FCC, and the wireless industry and the PSAP community are currently working to resolve this.
