Your phone features earSmart™, an intelligent voice processor that delivers a clear voice experience, allowing you to

hear and be heard

™ in nearly any environment. earSmart technology uses the science of human hearing to distinguish sounds, identify your voice and suppress surrounding noise, for clear conversations just about anywhere.

How Does It Work?

The earSmart voice processor in your phone captures your voice and all the sounds around you.

Working like the human ear, it processes and distinguishes these sounds, isolates your voice conversation, and removes background noise - from both ends of a call.

It also automatically equalizes and adjusts voice volume so you can hear and talk naturally, even in the noisiest places.

With earSmart technology, you can talk where you want, and have clear conversations for mobile calls, video chats, even speakerphone calls, without worrying about surrounding noise.

Section 1: Getting Started

This section explains how to start using your phone by first configuring your hardware, activating your service, and then setting up your voice mail.

Setting Up Your Phone

Prior to use it is necessary to install both the battery and SIM into their corresponding internal compartments. The microSD™ card slot is also located in this same internal area.

1.

Remove the back cover by inserting a fingernail into the slot on the top of your phone (1).

2.

Lift the cover up (2) and to the right of the phone.

Caution!

Do not bend or twist the back cover excessively.

Doing so may damage the cover.

Installing the SIM Card

When you subscribe to a cellular network, you are provided with a plug-in SIM card loaded with your subscription details, such as your PIN, available optional services, and many others features.

6

Important!

The plug-in SIM card information and its contacts can be easily damaged by scratching or bending, so be careful when handling, inserting, or removing the card. Keep all SIM cards out of reach of small children.

Carefully slide the SIM card into the SIM card socket

(as shown) until the card locks into place.

Make sure that the card’s gold contacts face into the phone and that the upper-left angled corner of the card is positioned as shown.

Note:

If the card is not inserted correctly, the phone will not detect the SIM card. Re-orient the card back into the slot if the SIM is not detected.

Installing the Battery

1.

Insert the battery into the opening on the back of the phone, making sure the connectors align (1).

2.

Gently press down to secure the battery (2).

Removing and Installing the Memory Card

You can use a microSD

(SD) or microSDHC

card to expand available memory space if you desire. This secure digital card enables you to exchange images, music, and

Getting Started 7

data between SD-compatible devices. This type of memory card is designed for use with this mobile phone and other devices.

Note:

Your phone has been tested to support up to a 64GB memory card.

Installing the Memory Card

Push the microSD card into the slot until it clicks (as shown).

Make sure the microSD’s gold contact pins face downward and the card is securely inserted.

Removing the Memory Card

1.

Push on the memory card until it clicks and is released.

2.

Grasp the memory card and remove it from the phone.

Installing the Back Cover

1.

Place the battery cover onto the back of the phone (1) and press down (2).

For more information on Memory Cards, see

“Memory Card”

on page 43.

8

2.

Press along the edge of the back cover (3) until you have a secure seal.

Note:

You must fully charge the battery before using your phone for the first time. A discharged battery recharges fully in approximately 4 hours.

Note:

Make sure the battery is properly installed before switching on the phone.

Charging a Battery

Your device is powered by a rechargeable Li-ion battery. The

USB 3.0 Travel Charger that is used to charge the battery, is included with your device. Use only Samsung-approved batteries and chargers.

Note:

Long backlight settings, searching for service, vibrate mode, web browser use, and other variables may reduce the battery’s talk and standby times.

Although you can use the phone while the battery is charging, doing so will require additional charging time.

Using the Travel Charger

Important!

Verify that the handset battery is installed prior to connection. If the battery is not properly installed and the wall charger is connected, the handset may power off and on continuously, preventing proper operation.

Getting Started 9

1.

Plug the flat end of the USB 3.0 Travel Charger into the

Power/Accessory Interface connector and the other end into the Travel adapter. Plug the Travel adapter into a standard AC wall outlet.

2.

When charging is finished, remove the flat end from the interface connector jack on the phone.

3.

If you are using the older style USB 2.0 Travel Charger to charge your battery, plug the flat end of the Travel

Charger into the port on the right side as shown below.

Note:

Connecting the charger improperly may cause serious damage to the device. Any damage caused by misuse is not covered by the warranty.

Note:

Failure to unplug the wall charger before you remove the battery, can cause damage to the phone.

10

Low Battery Indicator

When the battery is weak and only a few minutes of talk time remain, the battery icon ( ) blinks and the device sounds a warning tone at regular intervals. In this condition, your phone conserves its remaining battery power, not by turning off the backlight, but by entering the dimming mode. For a quick check of your battery level, glance at the battery charge indicator located in the upper-right corner of your device’s display. Solid color ( ) indicates a full charge .

Linking Contacts

Linking Contact Information

Many people now maintain multiple email accounts, social networking logins, and other similar account information. For example, a Facebook account login name might differ from a corporate email account login because they are maintained separately and for different groups of people.

This device can synchronize with multiple accounts such as

Facebook, Twitter, Corporate email, and Google. When you synchronize your phone with these accounts, each account creates a separate contact entry in the Contacts list.

If one of your contacts (Amy Smith, for example) has a regular email account that you maintain in Gmail, but also has a Facebook account under her maiden and married name, as well as a Yahoo! chat account, when you merge these accounts into your Contacts list you can link all of her entries and view the information in one record.

The next time you synchronize your phone with your accounts, any updates that contacts make to email account names, email addresses, etc. automatically update in your contacts list.

For more information about synchronizing accounts, see

“Synchronizing Accounts”

on page 67.

Secured (requiring knowledge of the Router name and password).

Before You Start Exercising

This app can be used to monitor your exercise. While moderate physical activity, such as brisk walking, is safe for most people, health experts suggest that you talk with your doctor before you start an exercise program, particularly if you have any of the following conditions:

Heart disease;

Asthma or lung disease;

Diabetes, or liver or kidney disease;

Arthritis.

You should also check with your doctor if you have symptoms suggestive of heart, lung, or other serious disease, such as:

Pain or discomfort in your chest, neck, jaw, or arms during physical activity;

Dizziness or loss of consciousness;

Shortness of breath with mild exertion or at rest, or when lying down or going to bed;

Ankle swelling, especially at night;

A heart murmur or a rapid or pronounced heartbeat;

Muscle pain when walking upstairs or up a hill that goes away when you rest.

Finally, the American College of Sports Medicine recommends that you see your doctor before engaging in vigorous exercise if two or more of the following apply:

You are a man older than age 45 or a woman older than age 55;

You have a family history of heart disease before age 55;

You smoke or quit smoking in the past six months;

You have not exercised for three months or more;

You are overweight or obese;

You have high blood pressure or high cholesterol;

You have impaired glucose tolerance, also called pre-diabetes.

When in Doubt - Check it Out

If you are unsure of your health status, have several health problems, or are pregnant, you should speak with your doctor before starting a new exercise program. Working with your doctor ahead of time is a good way to plan an exercise program that is right and safe for you. Consider it the first step on your path to physical fitness.
