Get Started

The following topics give you all the information you need to set up your phone and wireless service the first time.

Your Phone at a Glance

The following illustration outlines your phone’s primary features.

Set Up Your Phone

Prior to using the phone, it is necessary to install and charge the battery. An optional microSD memory card (not included) can also be installed at this time.

Remove the Back Cover

Remove the back cover by placing your fingernail or a pointed object into the slot in the side of the cover (1).

Get Started 11

Install the Memory Card

To insert an optional microSD card (not included), carefully slide the memory card under the top metal plate into the microSD card socket until the card locks into place. For more information, see

Memory Card

.

Install the Battery

Insert the battery, aligning the gold contacts on the battery with the gold contacts on the phone, and gently press the battery into place.

Get Started 12

Replace the Back Cover

Replace the battery compartment cover, making sure all the tabs are secure and there are no gaps around the cover.

Charge the Battery

Your phone is powered by a rechargeable, standard Li-Ion battery. A Wall/USB Charger (Charging Head and USB cable) is included with the phone for charging the battery. You will need to charge the battery before using your phone.

Warning! Use only approved accessories to charge your phone. Approved accessories are designed to maximize battery life. Using other accessories may invalidate your warranty and may cause damage.

1. Plug the USB cable into the charger/accessory jack on the bottom of the phone.

2. Plug the USB cable into the charging head, and then plug the charging head into an electrical outlet.

Get Started 13

3. When charging is finished, remove the USB cable from the charger/accessory jack on the phone.

Turn the Phone On

Use the Power/Lock Key to turn the phone on.

Press and hold the Power/Lock Key to turn the phone on.

 If your phone is activated, it will turn on, search for wireless service, and begin the setup application.

 If your phone is not yet activated, see

Activate Your Phone

for more information.

Get Started 14

Activate Your Phone

Depending on your account or how and where you purchased your phone, it may be ready to use or you may need to activate it on your wireless account.

If you purchased your phone at a store, it is probably activated and ready to use.

If you received your phone in the mail and it is for a new wireless account or a new line of service, it is designed to activate automatically.

 When you turn the phone on for the first time, you should see a Hands Free Activation screen, which may be followed by a PRL Update screen and a Firmware Update screen.

Follow the on-screen instructions to continue.

If you received your phone in the mail and you are activating a new phone for an existing number on your account (you’re swapping phones), you will need to contact your wireless service provider.

To confirm activation, make a phone call. If your phone is still not activated, contact your wireless service provider.

Tip: Do not press the Power/Lock Key while the phone is being activated. Pressing the Power/Lock

Key cancels the activation process.

Note: If you are having any difficulty with activation, contact your wireless service provider.

Complete the Setup

After you turn on your phone and activate it, your phone displays a Welcome screen. Follow the prompts to set up features and preferences on your phone.

Note: In some cases, you may be able to complete the setup process before your phone has been activated on your wireless account.

During or after setup, you may see a Connections Optimizer notice. Read the notice and touch I Agree to allow your phone to connect automatically to the best available data network, including Wi-Fi. To turn

Connections Optimizer off at any time, touch > > Settings > Connections tab > More

networks > Mobile networks >

Connections optimizer

and uncheck the box.

1. At the Welcome screen, follow the on-screen instructions to configure your phone’s basic options, such as language, date and time, Wi-Fi connections, location settings, etc.

Google Account: Many of your phone’s applications, such as Gmail, Google Maps,

Hangouts, and the Google Play Store, require a Google Account. To use these applications, you must set up your Google Account on your phone. Complete the steps to sign in to your current Google Account, or sign up for a new Google Account.

Samsung Account: Your Samsung Account is used for access to Samsung apps and services, such as Samsung Hub, Samsung Apps, Samsung Link, and much more. Complete the steps to sign in to your current Samsung Account, or sign up for a new Samsung

Account.

Get Started 15

2. Touch Finish to complete setup.

Set Up Voicemail

Your phone automatically transfers all unanswered calls to voicemail, even if your phone is in use or turned off. You should set up your voicemail and personal greeting as soon as your phone is activated.

Always use a password to protect against unauthorized access.

1. Press Home and touch Phone. If your screen is locked, press the Power/Lock

Key to turn on the display and then swipe your screen in any direction. See

Turn Your Screen

On and Off

.

2. Touch and hold to dial your voicemail number.

3. Follow the system prompts to:

 Create your password.

 Record your name announcement.

 Record your greeting.

Important: It is strongly recommended that you create a password when setting up your voicemail to protect against unauthorized access. Without a password, anyone who has access to your phone is able to access your voicemail messages.

Your Phone’s Layout

This illustration outlines your phone’s basic layout.

Key Functions

The following list defines the features listed in the above illustrations.

Front of Phone

LED indicator displays red when charging, green when fully charged, blue when powering up, and orange when a notification has arrived.

Earpiece lets you hear the caller and automated prompts during calls.

Proximity Sensor detects the presence of objects near the phone, such as when using motion settings. For example, while talking on the phone, the sensor detects when it’s near your ear and turns off the screen to prevent accidental key presses.

Light Sensor detects the ambient light level, such as when setting screen brightness when

Phone Basics 19

Touch and Hold

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.
