Dynamic Noise Suppression from Audience
Your phone is equipped with an advanced voice processing chip that delivers clear mobile calls by suppressing background noise,
intermittent sounds (like a siren or nearby conversation), and echoes, allowing you to hear and be heard nearly anywhere.
How Does It Work?
Based on the intelligence of the human hearing system, the technology:
• Captures, evaluates and distinguishes all the sound signals surrounding your phone, and the person you're speaking with.
• Then isolates the primary voice in conversation and filters out the background noise - so the person you're calling hears only your voice,
without disturbing background noise.
• Dynamically equalizes and adjusts voice volume to optimize your calling experience, so you can hear clearly and don't need to speak louder to
overcome surrounding noise.
The noise suppression technology is built-in and already enabled in your new mobile phone. So it's ready to provide unsurpassed
voice clarity with every call.

until the card clicks into place.
Correct
Incorrect
Some features on your device (such as Wi-Fi Calling) can be
unlocked by using a new ISIM (IP Multimedia Services

contact T-Mobile customer service for more information.
This card contains the necessary information for identifying
and authenticating the user to the IMS (IP Multimedia
Subsystem).

device and that the upper-left angled corner of the card
is positioned as shown.
To remove the SIM card:
1. Remove the battery cover.
2. Carefully place your fingernail into the end of the SIM
slot and push the card slightly out.
3. Carefully slide the SIM card out of the SIM card socket.
Note: If the card is not inserted correctly, the device will not
detect it and no service will be available. If this happens,
turn off the device, remove the card, and reinstall the
card in the correct orientation.
Installing the microSD Memory Card
1. Remove the battery cover.
2. Locate the microSD card slot on the inside of the
phone.
3. Orient the card with the gold strips facing down.
4. Firmly press the card into the slot and make sure that it

Installing Battery
Your device is powered by a rechargeable Li-ion battery. A
wall charger, which is used for charging the battery, is
included with your phone. Use only approved batteries and
chargers. Ask your local Samsung dealer for further details.
Before using your device for the first time, you must fully
charge the battery. A discharged battery recharges fully in
approximately 4 hours.

Note: Verify that the battery is installed prior to connecting the
wall charger. If both the wall charger is connected and
the battery is not installed, the handset will power cycle
continuously and prevent proper operation. Failure to
unplug the wall charger before you remove the battery,
can cause the device to become damaged.
Warning! While the device is charging, if the touch screen
does not function due to an unstable power supply
unplug the USB power adapter from the power outlet
or unplug the USB cable from the device.
Important! It is recommended you fully charge the battery
before using your device for the first time.
1. Connect the USB cable to the charging head.
2. Locate the Charger/Accessory jack.
3. Insert the USB cable into the device’s Charger/
Accessory jack.
4. Plug the charging head into a standard AC power
outlet. The device turns on with the screen locked and
indicates both its charge state and percent of charge.
15
Correct
Incorrect
Note: This illustration displays both the correct and incorrect
orientation for connecting the charger. If the charger is
incorrectly connected, damage to the accessory port will
occur therefore voiding the phone’s warranty.
5. When charging is finished, first unplug the charger’s
power plug from the AC wall outlet, then disconnect
the charger’s connector from the phone.
Important! If your handset has a touch screen display, please
note that a touch screen responds best to a light
touch from the pad of your finger or a non-metallic
stylus. Using excessive force or a metallic object
when pressing on the touch screen may damage
the tempered glass surface and void the warranty.
For more information, refer to “Standard Limited
Warranty” on page 322.
Low Battery Indicator
When the battery level is low and only a few minutes of talk
time remain (~15% charge), a warning tone sounds and the
“Battery low” message repeats at regular intervals on the
display. In this condition, your device conserves its remaining
battery power, by dimming the backlight.
When the battery level becomes too low, the device
automatically turns off.
The on-screen battery charge is represented (by default) as a
colored battery icon. You can also choose to display a
percentage value. Having a percentage value on-screen can
provide a better idea of the remaining charge on the battery.
Press
➔
and then tap Settings ➔ Display
➔ Display battery percentage.
For more information, refer to “Display Settings” on
page 268.

Extending Your Battery Life
Active applications, light levels, Bluetooth usage, and GPS
functionality all act to drain your battery. The following is a
list of helpful tips that can help conserve your battery power:
• Reduce your backlight on time.
• Turn Bluetooth off when not in use.
• Turn Wi-Fi off when not in use.
• Deactivate the GPS when not needed. Most applications using
this function will periodically query the GPS satellites for your
current location; each query drains your battery.
• Do not wait until your battery is completely depleted before
charging your device. Repeating this process of a complete
discharge and recharge can over time reduce the storage
capacity of any battery.
• Turn off Automatic application sync.
• Use the Power Savings Widget to deactivate hardware functions
such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, Synchronization, or LCD brightness
setting.
• Check the Battery use screen to review what features or functions
have been consuming your battery resources.
17
• Check the Running Services and close any unnecessary
applications.
• Use the Task Manager feature to end/shutdown background
applications that are still running. These minimized applications
can, over time, cause your device to “slow down”.
• Turn off any streaming services after use (see Running Services).
• Animated wallpapers use processing power, memory, and more
power. Change your Live Wallpaper to a non-animated Wallpaper
gallery or Gallery image.
To conserve power by using the device’s power saving
features, see “Power Saving Mode” on page 270.
Note: The Power save feature can also be activated/
deactivated via the Notifications panel. For more
information, refer to “Accessing Additional Panel
Functions” on page 41.
