top right corner of your device’s display. A solid
color ( ) indicates a full charge.
Caution: Use only charging devices and batteries
approved by Samsung. Samsung accessories are
designed for your device to maximize battery life.
Using other accessories may invalidate your warranty
and may cause damage.
You can also choose to display a percentage
value. Viewing a percentage value can provide
a better idea of the remaining charge on the
battery. For more information, see Battery.
1. Insert the USB cable into the USB charger/
Accessory port.
2. Connect the USB cable to the charging head,

911 Call Routing: 911 calls sent through your tablet
are routed based on automatic location information
obtained from your tablet. If you cannot be located
using automatic location information, 911 calls will
be routed based on the address you provide in the
NumberSync settings of your tablet.
• Voice and video calling: Now you have two ways
to call.
Additional restrictions: Certain features are
incompatible with NumberSync.
• One number: Calls from your tablet will display as
your mobile number.
For more information, visit att.com/numbersync.

Roaming: You cannot use NumberSync outside of
