Set Up Your Device
Learn how to set up your device for the first time.
Assemble Your Device
Note: Your phone’s SIM card is preinstalled. These
instructions are for reference only.
This section helps you to assemble your device.
Caution: Exercise care when using the removal tool to
eject the internal SIM card/Memory card tray.
Install the SIM Card and a
Memory Card
1. Insert the removal tool into the hole on the
SIM card/Memory card tray, and then push until the
tray pops out.
When you subscribe to a cellular network, you are
provided with a plug-in SIM card. During activation,
your SIM card is loaded with your subscription details,
such as your Personal Identification Number (PIN),
available optional services, and other features.
2. Place the SIM card on the tray.
• Make sure that the card’s gold contacts face
down into the device and that the card is
positioned as shown.
Warning: Please be careful when handling the SIM card
to avoid damaging it. Keep all SIM cards out of reach of
small children.
3. Place the memory card on the tray with the gold
contacts facing down.
You can also install an optional microSD™, microSDHC™,

memory space to your device. A memory card can be
installed at any time. It is not necessary to install it
prior to using the device.
Set Up Your Device

Charge the Battery
Note: You should dry the inside of the charging port
before inserting a power connector to charge your
device. If the charging port is not fully dry, your device
may operate abnormally. For example, it may charge
more slowly or overheat. For more information, refer to
“Maintaining Water and Dust Resistance” on page 259.
Your device is powered by a rechargeable, standard
Li-Ion battery. A USB charger (charging head and USB
cable) is included with the device for charging the
battery from any standard outlet.
4. Slide the SIM card/Memory card tray back into
the slot.
Note: Your device is IP68 rated for dust and water
resistance. To maintain the water-resistant and
dust‑resistant features of your device, make sure
that the SIM card/Memory card tray openings are
maintained free of dust and water, and the tray is
securely inserted prior to any exposure to liquids. For
more information, refer to “Maintaining Water and Dust
Resistance” on page 259.
Set Up Your Device
The battery comes partially charged. You can use the
device while charging.
Note: For fastest charging times, use the Adaptive
Fast Charger that came with your device. This charger

When to Charge the Battery
When the battery is low and only a few minutes of
operation remain, the device sounds a warning tone at
regular intervals.
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.
In this condition, your device conserves its remaining
battery power by dimming the screen.
2. Connect the USB cable to the charging head, and
then plug the charging head into a standard outlet.
For a quick check of your battery level:
Set Up Your Device

Viewing a percentage value can provide a better idea
of the remaining charge on the battery. For more
information, see “Battery” on page 212.
If the device heats up while charging the battery:
1. Disconnect the charger from the device and close
any running apps.
2. Wait for the device to cool down, and then begin
charging the device again.
While charging, the device and the charger may
become hot when using wireless charging or fast
charging. This does not affect the device’s lifespan or
performance and is in the device’s normal range of
operation.
• If the lower part of the device overheats,
check for damage to the connected USB cable.
Replace the damaged USB cable with a new
Samsung‑approved cable.
The charger may stop charging if the battery becomes
too hot.
If using a wireless charger, do not place foreign
materials between the device and the wireless charger.

Warning: Some people may have dizziness, seizures,
epileptic seizures or blackouts triggered by light
flashes or patterns, even if they have never had a
seizure or blackout before. Anyone who has had a
seizure, loss of awareness, or other symptom linked to
an epileptic condition, or has a family history of such
symptoms or conditions, should see a doctor before
using the Iris scanner.
DO NOT stare directly into the infrared iris recognition
LED as prolonged use can cause eye strain. Do not
stare at the iris recognition LED light when your eyes
are less than 20 cm (~8 inches) away from the device,
for best results keep your eyes between 25-35 cm
(~10-14 inches) away for optimum recognition.

Register Irises
Note: The Iris scanner is not intended to be used as a
medical device and the biometric data collected and
stored locally by the mechanism is not intended to be
used for any diagnostic, therapeutic, or preventative
purposes. Please follow all instructions for use of this
feature.
To use your eyes to unlock your device, you must set
a pattern, PIN, or password. For best results, perform
the setup process indoors, and remove your glasses or
contact lenses.
Note: To register just one of your eyes, tap the link on
the setup screen to register one iris.
For best results, remove eyeglasses and sunglasses.
Do not use the Iris scanner in bright sunlight or areas
with excessive reflected light (for example, by the pool
or seashore). Do not use the Iris scanner in low light.
Look straight at the device (not up, down or sideways),
and hold your head still for the scan. Tinted contact
lenses and surgically repaired or replaced iris lenses
may interfere with operation of the Iris scanner. Do not
walk or operate a vehicle while using the Iris scanner.

Visual Voicemail
This topic describes the Visual Voicemail feature of your
phone’s service, as well as the steps required to set up
Visual Voicemail on your phone.
About Visual Voicemail
Visual Voicemail gives you a quick and easy way to
access your voicemail. Now, you can find the exact
message you are looking for without having to listen to
every voicemail message first. This feature periodically
goes out to your voicemail, and gathers the caller
information from all of the current voicemails. It then
populates a list with the caller name and number,
along with the length of time and priority level of the
voicemail message.
Apps
Set Up Visual Voicemail
Setting up Visual Voicemail follows many of the same
procedures as setting up traditional voicemail. You
should set up your voicemail and personal greeting
as soon as your phone is activated. Your phone
automatically transfers all unanswered calls to your
voicemail, even if your phone is in use or turned off.
Note: To set up your traditional voicemail box,
see “Voicemail Setup” on page 16.

Warning: 9-1-1 Emergency Calling
If this cable was not provided with your TTY device,
contact your TTY device manufacturer to purchase the
connector cable.
It is recommended that TTY users make emergency
calls by other means, including Telecommunications
Relay Services (TRS), analog cellular, and landline
communications. Wireless TTY calls to 9-1-1 may be
corrupted when received by public safety answering
points (PSAPs), rendering some communications
unintelligible. The problem encountered appears
related to TTY equipment or software used by PSAPs.
This matter has been brought to the attention of
the FCC, and the wireless industry and the PSAP
community are currently working to resolve this.

water, rinse the device with fresh water immediately
and dry it thoroughly with a clean, soft cloth.
Failure to rinse the device in fresh water and dry it
as instructed may cause the device to suffer from

sealed or closed tightly to prevent liquid from
entering the system.

• Do not expose the device to water at high pressure.
• If the device is dropped or receives an impact, the
water and dust resistant features of the device
may be damaged.
Whenever your device gets wet, dry it thoroughly
with a clean, soft cloth. If your device has gotten
wet, you should dry the inside of the charging port
before inserting a power connector to charge your
