Assembling
Unpack
Check your product box for the following items:
●● Mobile device
●● Quick start guide
Use only Samsung-approved software. Pirated or illegal
software may cause damage or malfunctions that are
not covered by your manufacturer's warranty.
The items supplied with your device and available
accessories may vary depending on your region or
service provider.
●● You can purchase additional accessories from your
local Samsung dealer.
●● The supplied accessories perform best for your device.
●● Accessories other than the supplied ones may not be
compatible with your device.
●●
Install the SIM or USIM card
When you subscribe to a cellular service, you will receive
a Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) card, with subscription
details, such as your personal identification number (PIN) and
optional services. To use UMTS or HSDPA services, you can
purchase a Universal Subscriber Identity Module (USIM) card.
Assembling
12
To install the SIM or USIM card,
1 Open the cover of the SIM card slot.
2 Insert the SIM or USIM card with the gold-coloured
contacts facing down.
Do not insert a memory card into the SIM card slot.
If the memory card becomes lodged in the SIM card
slot, you must take your device to a Samsung Service
Centre to have the memory card removed.
●● The SIM card slot of your device is only suited for
standard SIM cards. Inserting a microSIM card or a
microSIM card with an unauthorised holder may
cause damage to the SIM card slot of your device.
●●
3 Close the cover of the SIM card slot.
Charge the battery
Your device has a built-in battery. Before using the device
for the first time or when the battery has been unused for an
extended period, you must charge the battery.
Use only Samsung-approved chargers. Unauthorised
chargers can cause batteries to explode or damage your
device.
Assembling
13
Charge the battery only with a charger. You cannot
charge the battery with the USB cable.
●● When your battery is low, the device will emit a
warning tone and display a low battery message. The
battery icon will also be empty. If the battery level
becomes too low, the device will automatically power
off. Recharge your battery to continue using your
device.
●● If the battery is completely discharged, you cannot
turn on the device, even with the USB power adapter
connected. Allow a depleted battery to charge for a
few minutes before you try to turn on the device.
●●
1 Connect the USB cable to the USB power adapter, and
then plug the end of the USB cable into the multifunction
jack.
The shape of the USB power adapter may differ
depending on your region.
Connecting the USB cable improperly may cause
serious damage to the device or USB power adapter.
Any damage caused by misuse is not covered by the
warranty.
Assembling
14
2 Plug the USB power adapter into a power outlet.
You can use the device while it is charging, but it may
take longer to fully charge the battery.
●● While the device is charging, the touch screen may
not function due to an unstable power supply. If
this happens, unplug the USB power adapter from
the power outlet or unplug the USB cable from the
device.
●● While charging, the device may heat up. This is
normal and should not affect your device’s lifespan or
performance.
●● If your device is not charging properly, bring your
device and the charger to a Samsung Service Centre.
●●
3 When the battery is fully charged, first unplug the USB
power adapter and USB cable from the device, and then
from the power outlet.
To save energy, unplug the USB power adapter when
not in use. The USB power adapter does not have a
power switch, so you must unplug the USB power
adapter from the electrical socket when not in use to
avoid wasting power. The device should remain close to
the electrical socket while charging.
Insert a memory card (optional)
Your device accepts memory cards with maximum capacities
of 64 GB. Depending on the memory card manufacturer and
type, some memory cards may not be compatible with your
device.
Assembling
15
Samsung uses approved industry standards for memory
cards, but some brands may not be fully compatible
with your device. Using an incompatible memory card
may damage your device or the memory card and can
corrupt data stored on the card.
Your device supports only the FAT file structure for
memory cards. If you insert a card formatted with
a different file structure, your device will ask you to
reformat the memory card.
●● Frequent writing and erasing of data will shorten the
lifespan of memory cards.
●● When you insert a memory card in your device, the
file directory of the memory card will appear in the
extSdCard folder under the internal memory.
●●
1 Open the cover of the memory card slot.
2 Insert a memory card with the gold-coloured contacts
facing down.
3 Push the memory card in the memory card slot until it
4
locks in place.
Close the memory card cover.
Assembling
16
››Remove the memory card
Before removing a memory card, first unmount it for safe
removal.
1 Open the application list and select Settings → Storage
→ Unmount SD card → OK.
2 Open the memory card cover.
3 Push the memory card gently until it disengages from the
4
5
device.
Remove the memory card.
Close the memory card cover.
Do not remove a memory card while the device is
transferring or accessing information, as this could
result in loss of data or damage to the memory card or
device.
››Format the memory card
Formatting your memory card on a PC may cause
incompatibilities with your device. Format the memory card
only on the device.
Open the application list and select Settings → Storage →
Format SD card → Format SD card → Erase everything.
Before formatting the memory card, remember to make
backup copies of all important data stored on your
device. The manufacturer’s warranty does not cover loss
of data resulting from user actions.
