Assembling
Unpack
Check your product box for the following items:
●● Mobile device
●● Battery
●● 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 retailer.
●● The supplied accessories perform best for your device.
●● Accessories other than the ones supplied 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
12
To install the SIM or USIM card and battery,
1 If the device is on, press and hold the Power key and select
2
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 downwards.
The antenna is located in the upper area on the
back of the device. Do not remove the protective
tape covering the antenna, as this can damage the
antenna.
●● The SIM card slot of your device is only suited for
standard SIM cards. Inserting a micro SIM card or a
micro SIM card with an unauthorised holder may
cause damage to the SIM card slot of your device.
●●
Assembling
13
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.
Use only Samsung-approved chargers. Unapproved
chargers can cause batteries to explode or damage your
device.
Assembling
14
You can charge the battery faster with the supplied
travel adapter.
●● 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.
●●
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
15
2 Plug the large end of the travel adapter into an electrical
socket.
●● You can use the device while it is charging, but it may
take longer to fully charge the battery.
●● If the device receives an unstable power supply while
charging, the touch screen may not function. 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, take your
device and the charger to a Samsung Service Centre.
3 When the battery is fully charged, first unplug the travel
adapter from the device and then from the electrical
socket.
Do not remove the battery before removing the travel
adapter. Doing so 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 electrical
socket when not in use to avoid wasting power. The
travel adapter should remain close to the socket when
in use.
Insert a memory card (optional)
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).
Assembling
16
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 your memory cards.
●● When you insert a memory card into your device,
the memory card’s file directory will appear in the
external_sd folder under the internal memory.
●●
1 Remove the back cover and battery.
2 Insert a memory card with the gold-coloured contacts
facing downwards.
3 Push the memory card into the memory card slot until it
4
locks in place.

4
5
device.

only on the device.
In Idle mode, select Applications → Settings → Storage →
Erase SD card → Erase 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.

information about radio interference
Some hearing aids may be interfered with by the radio frequency of your
device. Contact the manufacturer to ensure the safety of your hearing aid.
Turn off the device in potentially explosive environments
• Turn off your device in potentially explosive environments instead of
removing the battery.
• Always comply with regulations, instructions and signs in potentially
explosive environments.
• Do not use your device at refuelling points (service stations), near fuels or
chemicals, and at blasting areas.
• Do not store or carry flammable liquids, gases, or explosive materials in the
same compartment as the device, its parts, or accessories.
Turn off your device when in an aircraft
Using your device in an aircraft is illegal. Your device may interfere with the
electronic navigation instruments of the aircraft.
Electronic devices in a motor vehicle may malfunction due to the
radio frequency of your device
Electronic devices in your car may malfunction due to radio frequency of your
device. Contact the manufacturer for more information.
Comply with all safety warnings and regulations
regarding mobile device usage while operating a
vehicle
While driving, safely operating the vehicle is your first responsibility. 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:
• 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.
Safety precautions
186
• Suspend 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.
• 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.
Proper care and use of your mobile device
Keep your device dry
• Humidity and all types of liquids may damage device parts or electronic
circuits.
• Do not turn on your device if it is wet. If your device is already on, turn it off
and remove the battery immediately (if the device will not turn off or you
cannot remove the battery, leave it as-is). Then, dry the device with a towel
and take it to a service centre.
• Liquids will change the colour of the label that indicates water damage
inside the device. Water damage to your device can void your manufacturer’s
warranty.
Do not use or store your device in dusty, dirty areas
Dust can cause your device to malfunction.
Do not store your device on slopes
If your device falls, it can be damaged.
Safety precautions
187

temperature burn symptoms, such as red spots and pigmentation.
If your device has a camera flash or light, do not use a flash close to
the eyes of people or pets
Using a flash close to the eyes may cause temporary loss of vision or damage to
the eyes.
Safety precautions
188
Use caution when exposed to flashing lights
• While using your device, leave some lights on in the room and do not hold
the screen too close to your eyes.
• Seizures or blackouts can occur when you are exposed to flashing lights
while watching videos or playing Flash-based games for extended periods. If
you feel any discomfort, stop using the device immediately.
Reduce the risk of repetitive motion injuries
When you repetitively perform actions, such as pressing keys, drawing
characters on a touch screen with your fingers, or playing games, you may
experience occasional discomfort in your hands, neck, shoulders, or other
parts of your body. When using your device for extended periods, hold the
device with a relaxed grip, press the keys lightly, and take frequent breaks. If
you continue to have discomfort during or after such use, stop use and see a
physician.
Ensure maximum battery and charger life
• Avoid charging batteries for more than a week, as overcharging may shorten
battery life.
• Over time, unused batteries will discharge and must be recharged before
use.
• Disconnect chargers from power sources when not in use.
• Use batteries only for their intended purposes.
Use manufacturer-approved batteries, chargers, accessories and

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.
• In dry environments, static electricity can build up in the
headset. Avoid using headsets in dry environments or
touch a metal object to discharge static electricity before
connecting a headset to the device.
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

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

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.
