Using the Battery
Battery Capacity
Your phone is equipped with a standard Lithium Ion (LiIon) battery. It allows
you to recharge your battery before it is fully drained. The standard battery
provides approximately 3 hours of continuous digital talk time (1.5 hours in
analog) or approximately 216 hours of continuous digital standby time (15
hours in analog).
The extended battery provides approximately 4 hours of continuous digital
talk time (2 hours in analog) or approximately 288 hours of continuous digital
standby time (20 hours in analog).
When the battery reaches 5% of its capacity, the battery icon blinks. When
there are approximately two minutes of talk time left, the phone sounds an
audible alert and then powers down.
Note: Long backlight settings, searching for service, vibrate mode, camera usage
and browser use affect the battery’s talk and standby times.
Tip: Be sure to watch your phone’s battery level indicator and charge the battery
before it runs out of power.
Installing the Battery
Your phone comes with a LiIon battery. Follow these steps to install it:
1. Insert the battery into the opening on the back of the phone,
making sure the plastic tab on the back is inserted into the
matching slot in the phone.
2. Press up until the latch snaps into place.

3. Slide the battery down and remove.
Charging the Battery
Your phone comes with a rechargeable battery. You should charge the battery
as soon as possible so you can begin using your phone.
Keeping track of your battery’s charge is important. If your battery level
becomes too low, your phone automatically turns off. For a quick check of
your phone’s battery level, glance at the battery charge indicator located in the
upper-right corner of your phone’s display screen. If the battery charge is
getting too low, the battery icon (
) blinks and the phone sounds a
warning tone. Always use a Samsung approved desktop charger, travel
charger, or vehicle power adapter to charge your battery.
Getting Started 11

on the phone indicates that the battery is charging.
A green light on the desktop charger indicates that the battery
is at least 90 percent charged.
A orange light on the desktop charger indicates that there is a
problem charging the phone.
It takes approximately 4 hours to fully recharge a completely rundown
standard battery. With the Samsung approved LiIon battery, you can recharge
the battery before it becomes completely run down.
If a Travel Charger is used to charge the battery, multi-colored lights are
displayed when the flip is closed. Red, green, and blue lights are cycled

Understanding Roaming
Roaming on Other Digital Networks
When you are roaming, your phone will display the Roaming icon
. When
the roaming icon is displayed, you are outside of your home network and you
will be charged a higher per minute rate for calls.
Roaming on Analog Networks
When you roam on analog networks, you will experience a similar quality
provided by other analog carriers today. Although some features, such as
Mobile Web services and Voice Command, will be unavailable, you can still
make and receive calls and access voicemail. You will experience a few
differences:
33
You are more likely to experience static, cross-talk, fade-out, and
dropped calls.
Some features which are standard on the network, such as call
waiting, web services, and direct international dialing, are unavailable.
Though callers can leave voicemail messages while you are roaming,
you will not receive notification until you return to the network. While
roaming, you can periodically check your voicemail for new messages
by dialing 1+area code+your Phone Number.
There are security and privacy risks (eavesdropping and cloning) that
exist with conventional analog services today.
Your battery needs recharging sooner when you use your phone for
analog roaming.
Controlling Your Roaming Experience

Activating Voice Recognition
Voice recognition allows you to say commands to perform common functions
supported by your phone. There is no voice training required to use the voice
recognition feature. You simply say the pre-designated command displayed
on your screen in a normal tone of voice to perform the desired function.
To activate voice recognition:
1. Press and hold
.
2. The phone prompts you to say a voice command. Wait for the beep
and then say one of the following commands:
Digit Dial
Name Dial
Voice Memo
Phone book
Browser
Play Games
When it recognizes one of these commands, the phone launches the
associated application. If the phone does not hear a command within
approximately eight seconds, it de-activates voice recognition without taking
any action.
Note: If you want to use a different button to activate voice recognition, press
for Launch Pad. On this menu, you can change button assignments,
including the button used to launch "Voice Dial," which is the voice recognition
application.
Digit Dial
Digit Dial allows you dial any valid 7 or 11 digit North American phone
number by speaking the number naturally, without pausing between the
digits.
Tips for using Digit Dial:
72
Digit Dial works best in quieter environments.
When saying a number, speak at a normal speed and say each digit
clearly. There is no need to pause between digits.
Voice Services
The phone recognizes the digits one, two, three, four, five, six, seven,
eight, nine, zero, and oh. The phone does not recognize numbers such
as "one eight hundred" for "1-800." Instead, say "one-eight-zero-zero."
The phone recognizes only valid 7, 10, or 11 digit North American
phone numbers.
If your phone does not usually recognize you correctly when you are
using Digit Dial, try adapting Digit Dial to your voice, which can
significantly improve accuracy for some speakers. See the section
"Adapting Digit Dial" for details.
To place a call using Digit Dial:
1. Activate voice recognition by pressing and holding
. The phone
prompts you for a command.
2. Say Digit Dial. The phone prompts you to say the number.
3. Say a valid 7, 10 or 11 digit North American phone number
naturally and clearly.
4. If the phone asks you, "Did You Say," followed by the correct
number, say "Yes." You can also select the correct number from
those displayed on the screen by pressing
on the correct
number. The phone will then dial the number.
5. If the phone asks you, "Did You Say," followed by an incorrect
number, say "No." If there are other alternatives, the phone will
prompt you with the next one. You can also press the navigation
key up or down to select the correct number from the Choice List,
and then press
to dial.
Note: In some cases, the phone might ask you to repeat a number. Make sure that
the number is a valid 7, 10, or 11 digit North American phone number, and then say
the number again. If the number isn't valid, or if the phone still doesn't understand
the number on the second try, it will not place a call.

Adapting Digit Dial
Digit Dialing is speaker independent, which means that no training or
adaptation is required. Some users with heavy accents or unusual voice
characteristics may find difficulty in achieving high accuracy with speaker
independent digit dialing, so the Adapt Digits feature allows users to
dramatically improve the digit accuracy through adaptation. Users who get
acceptable digit recognition accuracy will find no additional benefit to
performing the Adapt Digit adaptation.
After you adapt Digit Dial, your phone will be customized to your voice. Other
people will not be able to use Digit Dial on your phone unless they reset the
phone to factory defaults.
Important: ONLY adapt Digit Dial if the system is frequently misrecognizing your
speech. You can always restore the system to its original factory setting.
Adaptation involves recording several digit sequences to teach the system
your voice. The adaptation process takes about 3 minutes.
Tips for adapting Digit Dial:

noises), say "Yes." If you need to re-record the digits to fix any
problems, say "No." The phone then prompts you to say the digits
again. Wait for the beep, and then record the digits again. Repeat
this step until you are satisfied with the recording.
7. After confirming that the recording sounds ok, repeat the recording
process with the next set of digits. After six sets of digits, the phone
will ask you whether you want to do more adaptation. Answer "Yes."

digits, you will be half way through the session and the phone asks
“More Adaptation?”. Select OK to continue for six more sets of
digits, or press
for partial adaptation. When you are finished
with a full session, you will reach a screen that reads, “Adaptation
Complete”.

Safety 121
Getting the Most Out of Your Reception
Keeping Tabs on Signal Strength
The quality of each call you make or receive depends on the signal strength in
your area. Your phone informs you of the current signal strength by
displaying a number of bars next to the signal strength icon. The more bars
displayed, the stronger the signal. If you’re inside a building, being near a
window may give you better reception.
Understanding the Power Save Feature
If your phone is unable to find a signal after 15 minutes of searching, a Power
Save feature is automatically activated. If your phone is active, it periodically
rechecks service availability or you can check it yourself by pressing any key.
Anytime the Power Save feature is activated, a message displays on the screen.
When a signal is found, your phone returns to standby mode.
Understanding How Your Phone Operates
Your phone is basically a radio transmitter and receiver. When it’s turned on, it
receives and transmits radio frequency (RF) signals. When you use your
phone, the system handling your call controls the power level. This power can
range from 0.006 watts to 0.2 watts in digital mode.
Knowing Radio Frequency Safety
The design of your phone complies with updated NCRP standards described
below. In 1991-92, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE)
and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) joined in updating
ANSI’s 1982 standard for safety levels with respect to human exposure to RF
signals. More than 120 scientists, engineers and physicians from universities,
government health agencies and industries developed this updated standard
after reviewing the available body of research. In 1993, the Federal
Communications Commission (FCC) adopted this updated standard in a
regulation. In August 1996, the FCC adopted hybrid standard consisting of the
existing ANSI/IEEE standard and the guidelines published by the National
Council of Radiation Protection and Measurements (NCRP).
Maintaining Your Phone’s Peak Performance
There are several simple guidelines to operating your phone properly and
maintaining safe, satisfactory service.
122
Safety
Hold the phone with the antenna raised, fully-extended, and over your
shoulder.
Try not to hold, bend, or twist the phone’s antenna.
Don’t use the phone if the antenna is damaged.
Speak directly into the mouthpiece.
Avoid exposing your phone and accessories to rain or liquid spills. If
your phone does get wet, immediately turn the power off and remove
the battery. If it’s inoperable, return it to a TELUS Store or call
Customer Support for service.
Note: For the best care of your phone, only TELUS authorized personnel should
service your phone and accessories. Faulty service may void
the warranty.
Maintaining Safe Use of and Access to Your Phone
FAILURE TO FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS OUTLINED MAY LEAD TO
SERIOUS PERSONAL INJURY AND POSSIBLE PROPERTY DAMAGE
Using Your Phone While Driving
Talking on your phone while driving (or operating the phone without a handsfree device) is prohibited in some jurisdictions. Laws vary as to specific
restrictions. Remember that safety always comes first.
When using your phone in the car:
Get to know your phone and its features, such as speed dial
and re-dial.
When available, use a hands-free device.
Position your phone within easy reach.
Let the person you are speaking to know you are driving; if necessary,
suspend the call in heavy traffic or hazardous weather conditions.
Do not take notes or look up phone numbers while driving.
Dial sensibly and assess the traffic; if possible, place calls when
stationary or before pulling into traffic.
Safety 123
Do not engage in stressful or emotional conversations that may divert
your attention from the road.
Dial 911 to report serious emergencies. It’s free from your wireless
phone.
Use your phone to help others in emergencies.
Call roadside assistance or a special non-emergency wireless number
when necessary.
Following Safety Guidelines
To operate your phone safely and efficiently, always follow
any special regulations in a given area. Turn your phone off in areas where use
is forbidden or when it may cause interference or danger.
Using Your Phone Near Other Electronic Devices
Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from radio frequency (RF)
signals. However, RF signals from wireless phones may affect inadequately
shielded electronic equipment.
RF signals may affect improperly installed or inadequately shielded electronic
operating systems and/or entertainment systems in motor vehicles. Check
with the manufacturer or their representative to determine if these systems
are adequately shielded from external RF signals. Also check with the
manufacturer regarding any equipment that has been added to your vehicle.
Consult the manufacturer of any personal medical devices, such as
pacemakers and hearing aids, to determine if they are adequately shielded
from external RF signals.
Note: Always turn off the phone in health care facilities and request permission
before using the phone near medical equipment.
Turning Off Your Phone Before Flying
Turn off your phone before boarding any aircraft. To prevent possible
interference with aircraft systems, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration
(FAA) regulations require you to have permission from a crew member to use
your phone while the plane is on the ground. To prevent any risk of
interference,
FCC regulations prohibit using your phone while the plane is in the air.
124
Safety
Turning Off Your Phone in Dangerous Areas
To avoid interfering with blasting operations, turn off your phone when in a
blasting area or in other areas with signs indicating that two-way radios
should be turned off. Construction crews often use remote-control RF devices
to
set off explosives.
Turn off your phone when you’re in any area that has a potentially explosive
atmosphere. Although it’s rare, your phone or its accessories could generate
sparks. Sparks could cause an explosion or a fire resulting in bodily injury or
even death. These areas are often, but not always, clearly marked. They
include:
Fueling areas such as gas stations.
Below deck on boats.
Fuel or chemical transfer or storage facilities.
Areas where the air contains chemicals or particles such as grain, just
or metal powders.
Any other area where you would normally be advised to turn off your
vehicle’s engine.
Note: Never transport or store flammable gas, liquid or explosives in the
compartment of your vehicle that contains your phone or accessories.
Restricting Children’s Access to your Phone
Your phone is not a toy. Children should not be allowed to play with it because
they could hurt themselves and others, damage the phone or make calls that
increase your phone bill.
Caring for the Battery
Protecting Your Battery
The guidelines listed below help you get the most out of your battery’s
performance.
Use only Samsung approved batteries and desktop chargers. These
chargers are designed to maximize battery life. Using other batteries or
chargers voids your warranty and may cause damage.
Safety 125
In order to avoid damage, charge the battery only in temperatures that
range from 32º F to 113º F (0º C to 45º C).
Don’t use the battery charger in direct sunlight or in high humidity
areas, such as the bathroom.
Never dispose of the battery by incineration.
Keep the metal contacts on top of the battery clean.
Don’t attempt to disassemble or short-circuit the battery.
The battery may need recharging if it has not been used for a long
period of time.
It’s best to replace the battery when it no longer provides acceptable
performance. It can be recharged hundreds of times before it needs
replacing.
Don’t store the battery in high temperature areas for long periods of
time. It’s best to follow these storage rules:
Less than one month:
4º F to 140º F (-20º C to 60º C)
More than one month:
4º F to 113º F (-20º C to 45º C)
Disposal of Lithium Ion (LiIon) Batteries
For safe disposal options of your LiIon batteries, contact your nearest TELUS
service center.
Special Note: Be sure to dispose of your battery properly. In some areas, the
disposal of batteries in household or business trash may be prohibited.
Note: For safety, do not handle a damaged or leaking LiIon battery.
Acknowledging Special Precautions and Industry Canada Notice
Only use approved batteries, antennas, and chargers. The use of any
unauthorized accessories may be dangerous and will invalidate the phone
warranty if said accessories cause damage or a defect to the phone.
Although your phone is quite sturdy, it is a complex piece of hardware and
can be broken. Use common-sense guidelines to avoid dropping, hitting,
bending or sitting on it.
126
Safety
Cautions
Any changes or modifications to your phone not expressly approved in this
document could void your warranty for this equipment, and void your
authority to operate this equipment. Only use approved batteries, antennas
and chargers. The use of any unauthorized accessories may be dangerous
and void the phone warranty if said accessories cause damage or a defect to
the phone.
Although your phone is quite sturdy, it is a complex piece of equipment and
can be broken. Avoid dropping, hitting, bending or sitting on it.
Information to User
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits of a Class
B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are
designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a
residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio
frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the
instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications.
However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular
installation; if this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or
television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off
and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or
more of the following measures:
Reorient / relocate the receiving antenna.
Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit difference
from that to which the receiver is connected.
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) for Wireless Phones
The SAR is a value that corresponds to the relative amount of RF energy
absorbed in the head of a user of a wireless handset.
The SAR value of a phone is the result of an extensive testing, measuring and
calculation process. It does not represent how much RF the phone emits. All
phone models are tested at their highest value in strict laboratory settings.
But when in operation, the SAR of a phone can be substantially less than the
level reported to the FCC. This is because of a variety of factors including its
proximity to a base station antenna, phone design and other factors. What is
Safety 127
important to remember is that each phone meets strict federal guidelines.
Variations in SARs do not represent a variation in safety.
All phones must meet the federal standard, which incorporates a substantial
margin of safety. As stated above, variations in SAR values between different
model phones do not mean variations in safety. SAR values at or below the
federal standard of 1.6 W/kg are considered safe for use by the public.
The highest reported SAR values of the [SCH-A600] are:
AMPS mode (Part 22) - Head: 1.04 W/kg; Body-worn: 0.821 W/kg
Digital mode (Part 24) - Head: 0.889 W/kg; Body-worn: 1.440 W/kg
