Insert 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.
1 Open the cover of the SIM card slot.
2 Insert the SIM or USIM card with the gold-coloured
contacts facing downwards.
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.
Assembling
15
Charge the 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. Charge the battery only with a charger. You
cannot charge the battery with a USB cable.
You cannot replace the battery in the device. If you have
problems with the battery or need it replaced, take the device
to a Samsung Service Centre.
Use only Samsung-approved chargers and cables.
Unapproved chargers or cables may cause batteries to
explode or damage your device.
When your battery is low, the device will emit a
warning tone and show a low battery message.
Recharge your battery to continue using your device.
●● If the battery is completely discharged, you cannot
turn on the device, even while it is charging. Allow a
depleted battery to charge for a few minutes before
you try to turn on the device.
●● The shape of the USB power adapter may differ
depending on your region.
●●
Assembling

1 Connect the USB cable to the USB power adapter and
then plug the end of the USB cable into the multifunction
jack.
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.
2 Plug the USB power adapter into a power outlet.
If the device receives an unstable power supply while
charging, the touch screen may not function. If this
happens, unplug the USB cable from the device.
●● The device may heat up while charging. This is
normal and should not affect your device’s lifespan or
performance.

3 When the battery is fully charged, first unplug the USB
cable from the device, and then unplug the USB power
adapter from the electrical socket.
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.
››Reduce the battery consumption

Insert a memory card (optional)
Your device accepts memory cards with maximum capacities
of 32 GB. Depending on the memory card manufacturer and
type, some memory cards may not be compatible with your
device.
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. It may
also corrupt data saved on the memory card.
Your device supports only the FAT file structure for
memory cards. If you insert a memory 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
extSdCard folder.

incompatibilities with your device. Format the memory card
only on the device.
