depending on the software and accessories
available in your region or offered by your service

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)

you can purchase a Universal Subscriber Identity Module
(USIM) card.
To install the SIM or USIM card and battery,

slot.
12 Assembling
4 Insert the battery.
5 Replace the back cover.
Charge the battery
Before using the device for the first time, you must charge
the battery.
You can charge the device with a travel adapter or by
connecting the device to a PC with a PC data cable.
›› Charge with a travel adapter
1 Open the cover of the multifunction jack.
2 Plug the small end of the travel adapter into the
multifunction jack.
Use only Samsung-approved chargers and cables.
Unauthorised chargers or cables can cause batteries
to explode or damage your device.
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 and turn red.
If the battery level becomes too low, the device will
automatically power off. Recharge your battery to
continue using your device.
Connecting the travel adapter improperly may

3 Plug the large end of the travel 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 travel adapter 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.
4 When the battery is fully charged (the battery icon is
no longer moving), unplug the travel adapter from the
device and then from the power outlet.
Do not remove the battery before removing the
travel adapter. Doing this may cause damage to the
device.
To save energy, unplug the travel adapter when not
in use. The travel adapter does not have a power
switch, so you must unplug the travel adapter from
the outlet to interrupt the power supply. The travel
adapter should remain close to the socket when
in use.
›› Charge with a PC data cable
Before charging, ensure that your PC is turned on.
1 Open the cover to the multifunction jack on the top of
the device.

Depending on the type of PC data cable you are
using, it may take some time before charging
begins.
4 When the battery is fully charged (the battery icon is
no longer moving), unplug the PC data cable from the
device and then from the PC.
Insert a memory card
To store additional multimedia files, you must insert
a memory card. Your device accepts microSD™ or
microSDHC™ memory cards with maximum capacities
of 32 GB (depending on memory card manufacturer and
type).
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 sdcard folder.

regulations when using your device in
restricted areas
Turn off your device where prohibited
Comply with all regulations that restrict the use of a mobile device in a
particular area.
116 Safety precautions
Do not use your device near other electronic devices
Most electronic devices use radio frequency signals. Your device may
interfere with other electronic devices.
Do not use your device near a pacemaker
• Avoid using your device within a 15 cm range of a pacemaker if
possible, as your device can interfere with the pacemaker.
• If you must use your device, keep at least 15 cm away from the
pacemaker.
• To minimise the possible interference with a pacemaker, use your
device on the opposite side of your body from the pacemaker.
Do not use your device in a hospital or near medical
equipment that can be interfered with by radio frequency
If you personally use any medical equipment, contact the manufacturer
of the equipment to ensure the safety of your equipment from radio
frequency.

Never use your mobile device while driving, if it is prohibited by law. For
your safety and the safety of others, practice good common sense and
remember the following tips:
• Use a hands-free device.
• Get to know your device and its convenience features, such as speed
dial and redial. These features help you reduce the time needed to
place or receive calls on your mobile device.
• Position your device within easy reach. Be able to access your wireless
device without removing your eyes from the road. If you receive an
incoming call at an inconvenient time, let your voice mail answer it
for you.
• Let the person you are speaking with know you are driving. Suspend
calls in heavy traffic or hazardous weather conditions. Rain, sleet, snow,
ice, and heavy traffic can be hazardous.
Safety precautions
117
• Do not take notes or look up phone numbers. Jotting down a “to do”
list or flipping through your address book takes attention away from
your primary responsibility of driving safely.
• Dial sensibly and assess the traffic. Place calls when you are not moving
or before pulling into traffic. Try to plan calls when your car will be
stationary. If you need to make a call, dial only a few numbers, check
the road and your mirrors, then continue.
• Do not engage in stressful or emotional conversations that may be
distracting. Make people you are talking with aware you are driving
and suspend conversations that have the potential to divert your
attention from the road.
• Use your device to call for help. Dial a local emergency number in the
case of fire, traffic accident, or medical emergencies.
• Use your device to help others in emergencies. If you see an auto
accident, a crime in progress, or a serious emergency where lives are in
danger, call a local emergency number.
• Call roadside assistance or a special, non-emergency assistance
number when necessary. If you see a broken-down vehicle posing no
serious hazard, a broken traffic signal, a minor traffic accident where no
one appears injured, or a vehicle you know to be stolen, call roadside
assistance or another special, non-emergency number.

• Avoid contact with your device’s internal antenna. Touching the
antenna may reduce the call quality or cause the device to transmit
more radio frequency than necessary.
• Hold the device with a relaxed grip, press the keys lightly, use special
features that reduce the number of keys you have to press (such as
templates and predictive text), and take frequent breaks.
120 Safety precautions
Protect your hearing
• Excessive exposure to loud sounds can cause hearing
damage.
• Exposure to loud sounds while driving may distract your
attention and cause an accident.
• Always turn the volume down before plugging the
earphones into an audio source and use only the
minimum volume setting necessary to hear your
conversation or music.
Use caution when using the device while walking or
moving
Always be aware of your surroundings to avoid injury to yourself or
others.
Do not carry your device in your back pockets or around
your waist
You can be injured or damage the device if you fall.
Do not disassemble, modify, or repair your device
• Any changes or modifications to your device can void your
manufacturer’s warranty. For service, take your device to a Samsung
Service Centre.
• Do not disassemble or puncture the battery, as this can cause
explosion or fire.
Do not paint or put stickers on your device
Paint and stickers can clog moving parts and prevent proper operation.
If you are allergic to paint or metal parts of the product, you may
experience itching, eczema, or swelling of the skin. When this happens,
stop using the product and consult your physician.
When cleaning your device:
• Wipe your device or charger with a towel or a rubber.
• Clean the terminals of the battery with a cotton ball or a towel.
• Do not use chemicals or detergents.
Do not use the device if the screen is cracked or broken
Broken glass or acrylic could cause injury to your hands and face. Take the
device to a Samsung Service Centre to have it repaired.
Do not use the device for anything other than its intended
use
Avoid disturbing others when using the device in public
Do not allow children to use your device
Your device is not a toy. Do not allow children to play with it as they
could hurt themselves and others, damage the device, or make calls that
increase your charges.
Install mobile devices and equipment with caution
• Ensure that any mobile devices or related equipment installed in your
vehicle are securely mounted.
• Avoid placing your device and accessories near or in an air bag
deployment area. Improperly installed wireless equipment can cause
serious injury when air bags inflate rapidly.
Allow only qualified personnel to service your device
Allowing unqualified personnel to service your device may result in
damage to your device and will void your manufacturer’s warranty.
Safety precautions
121
Handle SIM cards or memory cards with care
• Do not remove a card while the device is transferring or accessing
information, as this could result in loss of data and/or damage to the
card or device.
• Protect cards from strong shocks, static electricity, and electrical noise
from other devices.
• Do not touch gold-coloured contacts or terminals with your fingers or
metal objects. If dirty, wipe the card with a soft cloth.
Ensure access to emergency services
Emergency calls from your device may not be possible in some areas or
circumstances. Before travelling in remote or undeveloped areas, plan an
alternate method of contacting emergency services personnel.
Be sure to back up important data
Samsung is not responsible for data loss.
Do not distribute copyright-protected material
Do not distribute copyright-protected material that you have recorded
to others without the permission of the content owners. Doing this may
violate copyright laws. The manufacturer is not liable for any legal issues
caused by the user’s illegal use of copyrighted material.
122 Safety precautions
Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) certification
information
Your device conforms to European Union (EU) standards that limit
human exposure to radio frequency (RF) energy emitted by radio and
telecommunications equipment. These standards prevent the sale of
mobile devices that exceed a maximum exposure level (known as the
Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR) of 2.0 W/kg.
During testing, the maximum SAR recorded for this model was
0.375 W/kg. In normal use, the actual SAR is likely to 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.
The Declaration of Conformity statement at the back of this manual
demonstrates your device’s compliance with the European Radio &
Terminal Telecommunications Equipment (R&TTE) directive. For more
information about the SAR and related EU standards, visit the Samsung
website.
