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.
Battery Capacity
Your phone is equipped with a Li-Ion battery. It allows you to recharge your battery before it is fully drained. The battery provides up to 24 hours of continuous digital talk time.
When the battery reaches 2% of its capacity, the battery icon blinks. When there are approximately two minutes of talk time left, the phone can sound an audible alert and then turn off.
Note: Long backlight settings, searching for service, using vibrate mode, browser use, and other variable may reduce the battery’s talk and standby times.
Tip: Watch your phone's battery level indicator and charge the battery before it runs out of power.
Charge the Battery
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 any information you were just working on. 1. Connect the charging adapter and USB cable as shown; the LG logo on the charging adapter should face toward you.
2. Plug one end of the USB cable into the phone's Charger/Accessory Port and the other end into an electrical outlet. The charge time varies depending upon the battery level. Battery Temperature Protection
Though extremely rare, if the battery becomes overheated, the phone will automatically turn off.
Charge with a PC Using a USB Cable
You can use your computer to charge your phone. 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 phone 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.
Phone Basics
14
Note: Low-power USB ports are not supported, such as the USB port on your keyboard or buspowered USB hub.
The LG USB Driver is downloadable from the following site: http://www.lg.com/us/ > Select SUPPORT. In the Search box next to SEARCH PRODUCT SUPPORT, enter the model name or name and click SEARCH. Click the model. On the PRODUCT SUPPORT page, click on Software
Update & Drivers.
Always unplug the charger from the wall socket after the phone is fully charged to save unnecessary power consumption of the charger.

n Reduce the amount of time your backlight is on.
n Turn Bluetooth off when not in use.

Wi-Fi is a wireless networking technology that can provide Internet access at distances of up to 100 meters, depending on the Wi-Fi router and your surroundings.
To use Wi-Fi on your phone, you must connect to a wireless access point, or hotspot. Some access points are open and you can simply connect to them without entering any information. Others are hidden or implement other security features, so you must configure your phone to connect to them.
Turn off Wi-Fi when you're not using it to extend the life of your battery.
When you connect to a Wi-Fi network, the phone obtains a network address and other information it needs from the network, using the DHCP protocol. To configure the phone with a static IP address and other advanced settings, tap > Advanced Wi-Fi from the Wi-Fi settings menu.

Connections Optimizer
The Connections Optimizer is a tool that automatically selects the best mobile network for your phone, including "remembered" Wi-Fi networks. About Connections Optimizer
The Connections Optimizer helps you manage and enhance your data experience by finding and connecting to "remembered" Wi-Fi networks on your phone. Remembered Wi-Fi networks are networks with which you have previously chosen to connect. Active Wi-Fi connections may offer improved performance and generally improve battery life while allowing you to talk on the phone and use data at the same time. The Connections Optimizer works by searching for available "remembered" Wi-Fi networks. If you do not leave your Wi-Fi antenna on all the time, you will only notice the Connections Optimizer operating at certain times of the day in a small number of locations on the network. Your Wi-Fi antenna will conserve battery by scanning for connections periodically (not continuously), and if no connection is achieved, the antennas will be turned off. You may also manually turn the antennas off during the scan period. To facilitate quality assurance and enable feature enhancements, information is collected about your battery levels, Wi-Fi and network connections and usage. No personal information is collected. Enable Connections Optimizer
1. Tap > > Settings > More… > Mobile networks > Connections optimizer. You will see a disclaimer. 2. Read the disclaimer and, if you agree, touch I Agree to turn Connections Optimizer on.
