Installing the nano-SIM Card(s) and the
microSDHC™ Card
The microSDHC card (optional, not included) can be installed or
removed while the phone is turned on. You need to unmount the
microSDHC card before removing it. See Using the microSDHC
Card as Portable or Phone Storage.
12
WARNING!
To avoid damage to the phone, do not use any other kind of SIM
cards, or any non-standard nano-SIM card cut from a SIM card.
You can get a standard nano-SIM card from your service
provider.
NOTE:
Your phone is designed for simultaneous use of two nano-SIM
cards in standby mode. However, the nano-SIM cards cannot be
used simultaneously for calls or the Internet. If one nano-SIM
card is used in a voice call, the other nano-SIM card is not
available. This situation is caused by the function of the phone
and is independent of the network. Such design can significantly
reduce the power consumption of the phone in standby mode.
1. Insert your fingernail into the bottom of the back cover and lift
it up gently.
13
2. Hold the nano-SIM card(s) and the microSDHC card with the
cut corner oriented as shown and slip them into the card
slots.

NOTE:
The two nano-SIM slots support 4G/3G/2G networks. When
one nano-SIM card is set to connect with 4G/3G networks,
the other installed nano-SIM card can only connect with 2G
networks.
3. Replace the back cover.
Charging the Battery
Your phone’s battery should have enough power for the phone to
turn on, find a signal, and make a few calls. You should fully
charge the battery as soon as possible.
14
If the battery is low, there will be a pop-up message on the
screen. As you charge your phone, the lock screen will show you
the exact battery level on the status bar.
WARNING!
Use only ZTE-approved chargers and cables. The use of
unapproved accessories could damage your phone or cause the
battery to explode.
CAUTION:
Do not change the built-in rechargeable battery in your phone by
yourself. The battery can only be changed by ZTE or ZTE
authorized service provider.
1. Connect the adapter to the charging jack. Ensure that the
adapter is inserted with the correct orientation. Do not force
the connector into the charging jack.
15
2. Connect the charger to a standard AC power outlet. If the
phone is on, you’ll see a charging icon, such as
or ,
appear on the status bar.
3. Disconnect the charger when the battery is fully charged.
NOTE:
If the battery is extremely low, you may be unable to power on
the phone even when it is being charged. In this case, try again
after charging the phone for at least 20 minutes. Contact the
customer service if you still cannot power on the phone after
prolonged charging.
Extending the Battery Life
Active applications, screen brightness levels, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi
usage and GPS functionality can drain your battery. You can
follow the helpful tips below to conserve your battery power:
 Reduce the screen backlight time.
 Lower the screen brightness.
 Turn Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and auto-sync off when not in use.
 Disable the GPS function when not in use. Most applications
using this function will periodically query the GPS satellites
for your current location, and each query drains your battery.

Protecting Your Phone With Encryption
You can encrypt all the data on your phone: your accounts,
application data, music and other media, downloaded information,
and so on. If you do, you must draw an unlock pattern, enter a
numeric PIN or a password each time you power on your phone.
WARNING!
Encryption is irreversible. The only way to revert to an
unencrypted phone is to perform a factory data reset, which
erases all your data.
Encryption provides additional protection in case your phone is
stolen, and may be required or recommended in some
organizations. Consult your system administrator before turning it
on. In many cases the pattern, PIN or password you set for
encryption is controlled by the system administrator.
Before turning on encryption, prepare as follows:
●
Set a screen lock pattern, PIN or password.
●
Charge the battery.
●
Keep the phone connected to the charger.
30
●
Schedule an hour or more for the encryption process: you
must not interrupt it or you will lose some or all of your data.
When you're ready to turn on encryption:
1. Touch the Home key > Settings > Security > Encrypt
phone.
2. Read the information about encryption carefully.
The ENCRYPT PHONE button is dimmed if your battery is
not charged or your phone's not plugged in.
If you change your mind about encrypting your phone, touch
the Back key.
WARNING!
If you interrupt the encryption process, you will lose data.
3. Touch ENCRYPT PHONE.
4. Draw your screen lock pattern or enter your PIN or password.
5. Touch ENCRYPT PHONE again.
The encryption process starts. Encryption can take an hour or
more, during which time your phone may restart several times.
When encryption is completed, you're prompted to draw the
unlock pattern, or enter your PIN or password.
Subsequently you must draw your unlock pattern, or enter your
PIN or password each time you power on your phone in order to
decrypt it.

Radio Frequency (RF) Energy
General Statement on RF Energy
Your phone contains a transmitter and a receiver. When it is
ON, it receives and transmits RF energy. When you
communicate with your phone, the system handling your call
controls the power level at which your phone transmits.
156
Specific Absorption Rate (SAR)
Your mobile device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is
designed not to exceed the limits for exposure to radio waves
recommended by international guidelines. These guidelines
were developed by the independent scientific organization
ICNIRP and include safety margins designed to assure the
protection of all persons, regardless of age and health.
The guidelines use a unit of measurement known as Specific
Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit for mobile devices is 2
W/kg and the highest SAR value for this device when tested at
the head was 0.439 W/kg*, and when tested at the body was
0.732 W/kg*. As mobile devices offer a range of functions, they
can be used in other positions, such as on the body as
described in this user guide**.
As SAR is measured utilising the device’s highest transmitting
power, the actual SAR of this device while operating is typically
below that indicated above. This is due to automatic changes to
the power level of the device to ensure it only uses the
minimum power required to communicate with the network.
* The tests are carried out in accordance with EN
50360:2001/A1:2012, EN 50566:2013/AC:2014, EN
62209-1:2006, EN 62209-2:2010, and EN 62479:2010.
** Please see body worn operation.
Body Worn Operation
Important safety information regarding radio frequency
radiation (RF) exposure:
157
To ensure compliance with RF exposure guidelines the phone
must be used with a minimum of 15 mm separation from the
body.
Failure to observe these instructions could result in your RF
exposure exceeding the relevant guideline limits.
Limiting Exposure to Radio Frequency (RF)
Fields
For individuals concerned about limiting their exposure to RF
fields, the World Health Organisation (WHO) provides the
following advice:
Precautionary measures: Present scientific information does
not indicate the need for any special precautions for the use of
mobile phones. If individuals are concerned, they might choose
to limit their own or their children’s RF exposure by limiting the
length of calls, or using ‘hands-free’ devices to keep mobile
phones away from the head and body.
Further information on this subject can be obtained from the
WHO home page http://www.who.int/peh-emf (WHO Fact sheet
193: June 2000).
Regulatory Information
The following approvals and notices apply in specific regions as
noted.
