is charging).
Using Your Phone’s Battery and Charger
Battery Capacity
Your phone is equipped with a Lithium Ion (LiIon) battery. It allows
you to recharge your battery before it is fully drained. The battery
provides up to 3 hours of continuous digital talk time or
approximately 8 days of continuous digital standby time.
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,
playing games, or 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 or Removing the Battery
To install or remove the LiIon battery:
1. Make sure the power is off so that you don’t lose any stored
numbers or messages.
2. Remove the cover plate by pushing on the thumb tab (1)
and sliding the cover plate away from the handset (2).

3. Replace the cover plate.
Charging the Battery
Your phone’s LiIon battery is rechargeable and should be charged 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 and you
will lose all the information you were just working on. For a quick
check of your phone’s battery level, glance at the battery charge

session. Though the browser is open, you are not currently in an
active data session - that is, no data is being sent or received. As
soon as you navigate to another page, the active session will launch
and you will see the "Connecting" message.
Web Connection Status and Indicators
Your phone's display lets you know the current status of your web
connection through indicators which appear at the top of the screen.
The following symbols are used:
Your web connection is active (data is being transferred).
Incoming voice calls go directly to voicemail; outgoing voice
calls can be made, but the web connection will terminate.
When your web connection is dormant (no data is being sent or
received). Though not currently active, when dormant the
phone can restart an active connection quickly; voice calls can
be made and received.
Navigating the Wireless Web
Navigating through menus and Web sites during a web session is
easy once you've learned a few basics. Here are some tips for getting
around:
Softkeys
When browsing the Web, the bottom line of your phone's display
contains one or more softkeys. These keys are shortcut controls for
navigating around the Web, and they correspond to the softkey
buttons directly below the phone’s display screen. Depending on
which Web sites you visit, the labels on the softkeys may change to
indicate their function.
To use softkeys, simply press the desired softkey button. If an
additional pop-up menu appears when you press the softkey button,

the desired item, then press the desired softkey button (or
press
).

You'll find that the left softkey

Links, which appear as underlined text, allow you to jump to different
Web pages, select special functions, or even place phone calls.

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
108 Safety
A580 BMC Guide.book Page 109 Monday, June 12, 2006 4:23 PM
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 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.
should service your phone and accessories. Faulty service may void
the warranty.

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.
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.
110 Safety
A580 BMC Guide.book Page 111 Monday, June 12, 2006 4:23 PM
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
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 are in an area with a
potentially explosive atmosphere. Although it is rare,

Safety
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.
A580 BMC Guide.book Page 112 Monday, June 12, 2006 4:23 PM
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 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.
112 Safety
A580 BMC Guide.book Page 113 Monday, June 12, 2006 4:23 PM
•
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. When used correctly, the battery 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)

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
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 SPH-A580 are:
CDMA mode (Part 22) - Head: 0.729 W/kg; Body-worn: 1.24 W/kg
PCS mode (Part 24) - Head: 1.42 W/kg; Body-worn: 1.35 W/kg
