Power Saving Settings
Control your phone’s data delivery and battery usage through this settings menu.
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:

●
Turn Bluetooth off when not in use.
●
Turn Wi-Fi off when not in use.
●
Turn 4G off when not in use
Settings

●
Turn off Mobile Hotspot (Wi-Fi hotspot) services when not in use. This is one of the
largest drains on your battery as it is not only transmitting a Wi-Fi connection to your
phone but is also doing it while using a 4G connection.
●
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 phone.
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 saving 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.
●
Check the Running Services and close any unnecessary applications.

Send Information Using Bluetooth
You can use Bluetooth to transfer information between your phone and another Bluetoothenabled device such as a phone or notebook computer. The first time you transfer information
between your phone and another device, you need to enter or confirm a security passcode.
After that, your phone and the other device are paired, and you will not need to exchange
passcodes to transfer information in the future.
Send Information From Your Phone to Another Device
You can send the following types of information, depending on the device you are sending to:
●
Images and videos
●
Calendar events
●
Contacts
●
Audio files
1. Set the receiving device to discoverable mode. You may also need to set it to “Receive
Beams” or “Receive Files”. Refer to the device’s documentation for instructions on
receiving information over Bluetooth.
2. On the phone, open the application that contains the information or file you want to send.
For example, if you want to send a picture, press

7. On the receiving device, accept the file.
The location where the information is saved depends on the type of information and the
receiving device:
●
If you send a calendar event or contact, it is normally added directly to the corresponding
application on the receiving device. For example, if you send a calendar event to a
compatible phone, the event is shown in that phone’s calendar application.
●
If you send another file type to a Windows computer, it is normally saved in the
Bluetooth Exchange folder within your personal document folders.
●

On Windows XP, the path may be: C:\Documents and Settings\[your username]\
My Documents\Bluetooth Exchange.

On Windows Vista, the path may be: C:\Users\[your username]\Documents.
If you send a file to another device, the saved location may depend on the file type. For
example, if you send an image file to another wireless phone, it may be saved in a folder
named “Images.”
