Assembling
Unpack
Check your product box for the following items:
●● Mobile device
●● Battery
●● Travel adapter (charger)
●● 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 may vary
depending on the software and accessories available
in your region or offered by your service provider.
●● You can obtain 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 and battery
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
10
To install the SIM or USIM card and battery,
1 If the device is on, press and hold the Power/Lock key and
2
select Power off → OK to turn it off.
Remove the back cover.
Be careful not to damage your fingernails when you
remove the back cover.
3 Insert the SIM or USIM card with the gold-coloured
contacts facing down.
Do not insert a memory card into the SIM card slot.
Assembling
11
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.
Use only Samsung-approved chargers and cables.
Unauthorised chargers or cables can cause batteries to
explode or damage your device.
Assembling
12
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 travel adapter
connected. Allow a depleted battery to charge for a
few minutes before you try to turn on the device.
●●
››Charge with a travel adapter
1 Plug the small end of the travel adapter into the
multifunction jack.
Connecting the travel adapter improperly may cause
serious damage to the device. Any damage caused by
misuse is not covered by the warranty.
Assembling
13
2 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.
3 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 Plug one end (micro-USB) of the PC data cable into the
multifunction jack.
Assembling

a PC.
Depending on the type of PC data cable you are using,
it may take some time before charging begins.
3 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/external_sd folder under the internal memory
(moviNAND™).
●●

calls in heavy traffic or hazardous weather conditions. Rain, sleet, snow,
ice, and heavy traffic can be hazardous.
●● 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.

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
0.313 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.
