USER MANUAL | page 10 CAPITOLO Chapter 3 5 Getting started SIM Card and battery installation, SD Card installation, charging the battery, battery usage, powering ON/Off the Mobile Phone, connecting to the network, dialling calls. USER MANUAL | page 11 Chapter 3 GETTING STARTED The BIG500SWA model is a phone with a normal keypad, but that has a series of particular features: • The SW is ANDROID with WhatsApp pre-installed • The 2,8” display is a touch screen. • The main menu is made up of a series of panels with icons that are simple to interpret. USING THE TOUCHSCREEN Unlike normal phones, on which the Display is only used to display what has been selected using the keypad, the BIG500SWA has a Display that can be said to be a “Touchscreen”. What does that mean? The Touchscreen makes it possible to use the screen itself as an active area for accessing menus, icons, and various functions. This means that by simply touching a specific icon / function with your fingertip, it is activated and you can access a sub-menu or other specific functions. You can therefore touch a point, or “swipe” your finger over the screen to move the page, unlock the screen, or do many other actions. Since this phone has both a touchscreen and a normal numerical keypad, for many of its functions you are free to choose whether to use the touchscreen or the numerical keypad, or interact with both (for example, when using WhatsApp). NOTE: This choice cannot be made everywhere. Check what you can and can’t do from time to time, using only the touchscreen or the keypad. This does not indicate a defect in the software. USER MANUAL | page 12 • How to unlock the Display If the phone is on and no activity takes place for a defined time (usually 30 seconds), the phone’s screen turns black. This is done to reduce consumption on the battery. Therefore its status is: phone on, keypad blocked, and display off. To unlock the screen and begin using the phone, use one of the two options indicated below: 1) Push the on/off key (red key) for one second, then swipe the lock key that is displayed at the bottom of the screen to the right. 2) Alternatively, push the left key immediately followed by the * (asterisk) key, with the display off. This brings up large icons on the screen, for the following functions: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. “Date and time” - the current date and time are displayed. “Contact” - the contacts saved on the SIM and in the Phone. “WhatsApp“ - the chat application “Phone” - to be able to make a phone call “Message” - to be able to send and read messages • Swipe to the right (once) to open a screen that has 6 favourite contacts that are immediately available (part of the contacts list) • Swipe to the left (a number of times) to access other screens that provide access to a series of functions such as, “Camera”, “Internet“, “File manager”, ”Facebook” (via internet), ”Tools”, etc. (See Fig. 2) USER MANUAL | page 13 Chapter 3 GETTING STARTED USING WhatsApp (this app must be enabled): Fig.2 NOTE: To use WhatsApp the phone must be connected to the data network via the SIM, or to a Wi-Fi connection. In both cases we recommend checking the costs of these services with the service providers. When using WhatsApp for the first time, you need to enable it. You must therefore link it to your personal number for the SIM in the phone. Then refer to the following points: 1. With the SIM inserted and registered on the internet (the phone operator’s name is shown in the display) touch the “WhatsApp” icon on the display - see Fig. 2. 2. Follow the instructions in the sequence they appear on the screen (you will be asked to add your phone number). 3. You will receive a message with a activation code, via that same number (therefore on this phone). 4. Enter this code, where indicated. (next) USER MANUAL | page 14 Once the activation procedure has been completed, to use WhatsApp normally, follow the instructions below: 1. The main menu includes the “WhatsApp” icon. 2. Touch the icon on the display (touchscreen). 3. An icon circled in green (create new message) will be displayed in the bottom right corner. 4. Open the contacts menu and choose the contact you want to write to. 5. Now key in the text of the message. 6. To enter the text you must use the phone’s keypad, which is set as: • Default setting: “Abc lettering”. Each key pushed corresponds to a letter (according to the individual keys). For example, to enter the letter “b”, push key 2 twice in quick succession, and so on. • Push the # (hash) key to switch to the “intuitive dictionary” mode, and words will be suggested by the SW. NOTE: not all commonly used words are recognised, this is not a SW defect. • Push the # (hash) key again to switch to entering “numbers” only (0 ,1, 2, etc.) • To attach a file (image or any other), touch the paper clip icon at the bottom right of the screen for the text you are entering. A list of folders will open, from which the files to be attached can be taken. • Once you have completed the message, use the key with the arrow outlined in green to send the message. • To read a WhatsApp message that you have received, touch the area of the notification on the screen. You can reply to the message by repeating points 5 and 6 above, for the messages to be read.

Battery level indication: • Your mobile phone can monitor and display the battery status. • Normally the remaining energy of the battery is indicated by the battery level icon at the upper right corner of the display screen. • When the battery energy is insufficient, the mobile phone prompts “Battery low”. If you have set an alert tone, an alert tone will be given off when the battery level is too low. • A charging animation appears when the battery is being charged. When the charging is complete, the animation disappears. Note: Ensure that the plug of the charger and the plug of the USB cable are inserted in the right direction. Inserting them in a wrong direction may cause charging failure or other problems. Before the charging, ensure that the standard voltage and frequency of the local main supply match the rated voltage and power of the travel charger. USER MANUAL | page 18 Using a travel adapter: • Install the battery into the mobile phone before charging the battery. • Connect the adapter of the travel charger with the charging slot in the mobile phone. Ensure that the adapter is fully inserted. • Insert the plug of the travel charger to an appropriate power outlet. • During the charging, the battery level grids in the battery icon keep flickering till the battery is fully charged. • It is normal that the battery becomes hot during the charging period. • The battery icon does no longer flicker when the charging process ends. Plug the charger plug into an appropriate 100-240V ~ 50-60 Hz power outlet Insert charging connector here USER MANUAL | page 19 Chapter 3 GETTING STARTED 4 BATTERY USAGE The performance of a battery is subject to multiple factors: radio network configuration, signal strength, ambient temperature, chosen functions or settings, phone fittings, and the voice, data or other application mode you choose to use. To guarantee the optimal performance of your battery, please stick to the following rules: • Use only the battery provided by the vendor. Otherwise, damages or even injuries could be caused during the charging. • Power off the mobile phone before removing the battery. • The charging process lasts a longer time for a new battery or a battery not in use for long. If the battery voltage is too low to enable the mobile phone to be powered on, charge the battery for a longer time. In this case, the battery icon does not flicker until a long time after the battery enters the charge status. • During the charging, ensure the battery is placed in a room temperature environment or in an environment close to room temperature. • Immediately stop using the battery if the battery produces odor, overheats, cracks, distorts or has other damage, or if the electrolyte leaks. • The battery wears out with use. A longer charging time is required as the battery is put into use for a long time. If the total conversation duration decreases but the charging time increases even though the battery is properly charged, purchase a standard battery from the OEM or use a battery approved by our company. Using any poor-quality fittings will cause harm to your mobile phone or even incur danger!

These standards prohibit the sale of mobile devices that exceed a maximum exposure level (known as SAR) of 2.0 W/kg. During testing, the maximum SAR recorded for this model is 0.978 W/kg. During normal use, the actual SAR level can be much lower, as the device has been designed to emit only the RF energy necessary to transmit a signal to the nearest base station. By automatically emitting lower levels when possible, your device reduces your overall exposure to RF energy. To avoid damage to your hearing, please do not listen at high volume for a long time Maximum power: GSM900: 32,92 dBm GSM1800: 29,65 dBm WCDMA: 22,65 dBm WiFi: 9,57 dBm Bluetooth:4,23 dBm USER MANUAL | page 38 INFORMATION ON DISPOSAL OF UNITS This product bears the selective sorting symbol for waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE).
