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.
Set Up Your Phone
You must first install and charge the battery to begin setting up your phone.

Get Started


Insert the battery, aligning the gold contacts on the battery with the gold contacts on
the phone, and gently press the battery into place.

Replace the battery compartment cover, making sure all the tabs are secure and
there are no gaps around the cover.
2. Plug the USB cable into the Charger/Accessory Jack on the bottom of the phone.
3. Plug the other end of the USB cable into the Charging Head, and then plug the Charging
Head into an electrical outlet to charge your battery. Fully charging a battery may take
up to three hours.
Note: Your phone’s battery should have enough charge to turn the phone on and find a signal,
run the setup application, set up voicemail, and make a call. You should fully charge the
battery as soon as possible.
4. Press and hold the Power/Lock Key to turn the phone on.

If your phone is activated, it will turn on, search for Sprint service, and begin the

Activate Your Phone
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

Sprint Account Information and Help
Find out about account passwords and information about managing your account and finding
help.
Sprint Account Passwords
As a Sprint customer, you enjoy unlimited access to your personal account information, your
voicemail account, and your data services account. To ensure that no one else has access to
your information, you will need to create passwords to protect your privacy.

sign on to sprint.com. (Click Sign in/Sign up and then click Sign up now! to get started.) If you
are not the account owner (if someone else receives the bill for your Sprint service), you can get
a sub-account password at sprint.com.
Voicemail Password
You’ll create your voicemail password when you set up your voicemail. See Set Up Voicemail
for more information on your voicemail password.
Data Services Password
With your Sprint phone, you may elect to set up an optional data services password to control
access and authorize Premium Service purchases.
For more information, or to change your passwords, sign on to sprint.com or call Sprint
Customer Service at 1-888-211-4727.

Images and videos
●
Calendar events

Beams” or “Receive Files”. Refer to the device’s documentation for instructions on
receiving information over Bluetooth.

If you send a calendar event or contact, it is normally added directly to the corresponding
application on the receiving device. For example, if you send a calendar event to a
compatible phone, the event is shown in that phone’s calendar application.
●
If you send another file type to a Windows computer, it is normally saved in the
Bluetooth Exchange folder within your personal document folders.
●

On Windows XP, the path may be: C:\Documents and Settings\[your username]\
My Documents\Bluetooth Exchange.

On Windows Vista, the path may be: C:\Users\[your username]\Documents.
If you send a file to another device, the saved location may depend on the file type. For
example, if you send an image file to another wireless phone, it may be saved in a folder
named “Images.”
