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.
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
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
“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

USING WhatsApp (this app must be enabled):
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:
With the SIM inserted and registered on the internet

Chapter 3
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
Power off the mobile phone before removing the
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!

SAR Certification information (Specific Absorption Rate)
The device is compliant to European Union (EU) standards that
limit human exposure to radio frequency (RF) energy emitted
by radio and telecommunications equipment. 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
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
