of the phone, adjacent to the power key.
2. Carefully insert the stylus into the reset
button hole. After depressing the reset
button, the phone will reboot.

action is similar to that of a reset action on your computer which only restarts the machine
while maintaining all data intact.

the phone’s internal memory. This action resets your phone to its factory default settings,
ends all applications currently running, and wipes all data (pics/video/contacts) from your
phone.

circumvent the deletion of important data by storing it on your removable microSD memory
card.
1. From the Today screen, tap the right soft key function Main Menu > Settings
> All Settings > System tab > Hard Reset.
2. The Hard Reset screen displays with the Memory tab open. To reset your
phone, tap the Clear all data button.

simultaneously. Continue to hold SEND and END until the prompt to re-format device
arrives on screen. Press SEND again to re-format or END to cancel.

Bluetooth and Wi-Fi Services
This section explains the Bluetooth wireless technology and Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi)
features available with your Omnia, as well as certain connection related details
necessary for configuring your phone to work with these services.
About Bluetooth Wireless Technology
Bluetooth Service Profiles
Actually, the Bluetooth specification is a protocol that describes how the short-range
wireless technology works, whereas individual profiles describe the services supported
by individual devices. Profiles reduce the chance that different devices will not work
together. Your phone supports the following profile service:
• A2DP: Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (Stereo Headset)
• AVRCP: Audio/Video Remote Control Profile
• BIP: Basic Imaging Profile
• BPP: Basic Printing Profile
• FTP: File Transfer Profile
• GAP: Generic Access Profile
• GAVDP: Generic Audio/Video Distribution Profile
• HID: Human Interface Device
• HFP: Hands-Free Profile (Mono Headset)
• HSP: Headset Profile
• OPP: Object Push Profile
• PAN: Personal Area Networking Profile
• PBAP: Phone Book Access Profile
• SPP: Serial Port Profile
Bluetooth and Wi-Fi Services 110
Bluetooth and Wi-Fi
Bluetooth wireless technology provides short range wireless communication exchange
over a distance of about 30 feet without requiring a physical connection.
Unlike infrared, you don't need to line up the devices to beam information using Bluetooth.
If the devices are within a range of one another, you can exchange information between
them, even if they are located in different rooms.
Your Omnia allows you to beam files, appointments, tasks, and contact cards between
common devices or you can use Bluetooth wireless technology enabled peripherals to
integrate with your device.
Bluetooth Settings
The Bluetooth wireless technology settings menu provides the ability to view and change
the device name, show the visibility, and set the security for the device.
1. From the Today screen, drag and drop the Wireless Manager
widget
onto the Today screen.
2. Tap the Bluetooth Settings icon.
• Devices tab: Tap Add new device to search for nearby Bluetooth
devices. Tap on a device to modify its settings.
• Mode tab: To activate the Bluetooth functionality, tap the Turn on

•
Bluetooth box (a check mark appears in the box). To make your device
visible to other Bluetooth devices, tap the corresponding box.
COM Ports tab: After pairing with a device, use this filed to setup a
COM port by tapping a New Outgoing Port. For additional options, tap
and hold an existing port.
Smart Pairing: Allows you to easily make a connection with your
handfee or stereo headset. It will automatically attempt the PIN codes
listed.
FTP tab: Allows you to configure the FTP communication parameters
used within the Bluetooth communication among compatible devices.
Images Transfer tab: Allows devices to send JPEG images to your
phone.
My Information tab: Displays the Device Name and Device Address of
your Omnia.
Note: The Device Name which appears on the above screen is pulled from the Owner
Information screen accessible through the Today screen. For more information, refer to
"Owner Information" on page 101.
Bluetooth Modes
Bluetooth operates in two modes: On/Off and Visible Modes.
On/Off Mode
When the Bluetooth radio is turned on, you can use the Bluetooth wireless technology
features available in your Omnia. When the Bluetooth radio is turned off, you cannot send
or receive information via Bluetooth. To save battery life or in situations where radio use is
prohibited, such as airline traveling, you can turn off Bluetooth wireless technology in your
Omnia.
111 Bluetooth and Wi-Fi Services
Turning Bluetooth On/Off
1. From the Today screen, drag and drop the Wireless Manager
widget
onto the Today screen.
2. Tap the Bluetooth (Off) button. The button changes to Bluetooth (On).
Visible Mode
Making your Omnia Visible
To set your phone to be visible by other devices, follow these steps:
1. From the Today screen, drag and drop the Wireless Manager
widget
onto the Today screen.
2. Tap the Bluetooth Settings icon > Mode tab.
3. Place a checkmark in the “Turn on Bluetooth” check box by tapping the

5. Tap
to save your changes and return to the previous screen.
Note: If you do not want your Omnia to be visible, clear the “Make this device visible to
other devices” check box.
Bluetooth Bonds
A bond is a relationship that you create between your Omnia and another Bluetooth
wireless technology enabled device to exchange information in a secure manner. Creating
a bond involves entering the same Passkey on the two devices sharing a bond. Once a
bond is created between devices, the devices do not have to be visible to exchange
information; however, each device must have its Bluetooth radio on.
Bluetooth and Wi-Fi Services 112
Bluetooth and Wi-Fi
When your Omnia is visible, other devices will automatically detect it while searching for
compatible Bluetooth wireless technology enabled devices with which to connect. Your
phone must be on and you have to turn on the embedded Bluetooth radio.
When the visible mode is active, a message displays when another device attempts to
establish a bond or connect with your phone. You must accept the incoming beam to
exchange data or information with other compatible Bluetooth wireless technology
enabled devices.
Bonds are created only once between devices. Once a bond is created, devices can
exchange information as soon the bond is recognized, eliminating the need to discover
one another or to enter security features like a common Passkey.
Creating Bluetooth Bonds
You can create a bond between your device and another device that has Bluetooth
wireless technology. Once you do this, Bluetooth doesn't need to be in visible mode in
order for you to beam information between the two devices; the Bluetooth radio only
needs to be turned on.
Note: Make sure that the two devices are within range of one another and that Bluetooth
visible mode is enabled on both devices.
1. From the Today screen, drag and drop the Wireless Manager
widget
onto the Today screen.

Getting the Most Out of Your 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 a hybrid standard consisting of the existing ANSI/IEEE
standard and the guidelines published by the National Council of Radiation Protection and
Measurements (NCRP).
Safety 148
Safety
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.
Maintaining Your Phone’s Peak Performance
There are several simple guidelines for operating your phone properly and maintaining
safe, satisfactory service.
• 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 dealer store or call Customer Support for service.
Note: For the best care of your phone, only 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 hands-free 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.
• 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.
149 Safety
• Call roadside assistance or a special non-emergency wireless number when
necessary.
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, 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.
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.
Safety 150
Safety
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.
Turn off your phone when you are in an area with a potentially explosive
atmosphere. Although it is 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.
These areas 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, dust, 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 its 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, dial 911 by mistake, 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.
• 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.

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. However, 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 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-i910 are:
1.31 W/kg CDMA Head SAR
1.18 W/kg PCS Head SAR
