Battery and Charger
Sprint-approved or LG-approved batteries and accessories can be found at Sprint Stores or
through LG; or call 1-866-866-7509 to order. They‗re also available at www.sprint.com.
WARNING:
Use only Sprint-approved or LG-approved batteries and chargers with your
device. The failure to use a Sprint-approved or LG-approved battery and charger
may increase the risk that your phone will overheat, catch fire, or explode,
resulting in serious bodily injury, death, or property.
Battery Capacity
Your device is equipped with a Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) battery. It allows you to recharge your battery
before it is fully drained. The battery provides up to 7.3 hours of continuous digital talk time.
When the battery reaches 5% of its capacity, the battery icon blinks. When there are
approximately two minutes of talk time left, the device can sound an audible alert and then turn
off.
Note: Long backlight settings, searching for service, using vibrate mode, browser use, and
other variables may reduce the battery‗s talk and standby times.
Tip:
Watch your device's battery level indicator and charge the battery before it runs out of
power.
Device Basics

Install the Battery
► See Set Up Your Device.
Remove the Battery
1. Make sure the power is turned off so that you don‗t lose any unsaved items.
2. Lift the back cover using the fingertip cutout located at the bottom of the cover and
remove it.
3. Lift the battery using the fingertip cutout and remove it from the device.
WARNING:
Do not handle a damaged or leaking Li-Ion battery as you can be burned.
Charge the Battery
Keeping track of your battery‗s charge is important. If your battery level becomes too low, your
device automatically turns off, and you will lose any information you were just working on.
Always use a Sprint-approved or LG-approved desktop charger, travel charger, or vehicle power
adapter to charge your battery.
1. Connect the cableless wall adapter and USB cable as shown; the LG logo on the USB
cable should face toward you.
2. Plug one end of the USB cable into the device's Charger/Accessory Port and the other
end into an electrical outlet. The charge time varies depending upon the battery level.
With the Sprint-approved Li-Ion battery, you can recharge the battery before it becomes
completely rundown.
Device Basics

Battery Temperature Protection
Though extremely rare, if the battery becomes overheated, the phone will automatically turn off.
Charge with USB
You can use your computer to charge your device. To be able to charge with the USB cable,
you need to install the necessary USB drivers on your computer first. Connect one end of the
USB cable to the Charger/Accessory Port on your device and connect the other end to a USB
port on your computer. It is best to use the rear USB port when connecting to a desktop
computer. The USB hub should be powered by an external power source (see NOTE below).
Note: Low-power USB ports are not supported, such as the USB port on your keyboard or buspowered USB hub.
LG USB Driver is downloadable from the following site: http://www.lg.com/us/ > Select
Mobile > Drivers & Downloads > MOBILE DRIVERS > Find the carrier > Click the
proper USB Driver.
Always unplug the charger from the wall socket after the phone is fully charged to save
unnecessary power consumption of the charger.

WARNING:
911 Emergency Calling Sprint recommends that TTY users make emergency
calls by other means, including Telecommunications Relay Services (TRS),
analog cellular, and landline communications. Wireless TTY calls to 911 may be
corrupted when received by public safety answering points (PSAPs), rendering

You can change or add details saved in your contact entries, such as setting specific ringtones
to specific contacts or setting calls from specific contacts to divert to your voicemail. Some
contact entries contain information from multiple sources: information that you added manually,
information joined from multiple accounts to consolidate duplicates, etc.
If you find duplicate entries in Contacts, you can join them into a single entry. If you find that
unrelated contacts were joined in error, you can separate them.
Changes made to information from one source do not automatically change the information on
the other sources. For example, if you have information about a contact from a Google Account
and an Exchange account and both are configured to sync contacts, changes to the contact
from the Google Account are synced to that account on the Web, but the information from the
Exchange account will remain unchanged.

Bluetooth
Bluetooth is a short-range communications technology that allows you to connect wirelessly to a
number of Bluetooth devices, such as headsets and hands-free car kits, Bluetooth-enabled
handhelds, computers, printers, and wireless phones. The Bluetooth communication range is
usually up to approximately 30 feet.
