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.
Do not bend or twist the back cover excessively. Doing
so may damage the cover.
3 Insert the SIM or USIM card with the gold-coloured
contacts facing downwards.
Assembling
13
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.
●● 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 micro SIM card or a
micro SIM card with an unauthorised holder may
cause damage to the SIM card slot of your device.
●●
4 Insert the battery.
5 Replace the back cover.
Assembling
14
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.
Use only Samsung-approved chargers. Unapproved
chargers can cause batteries to explode or damage your
device.
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.
●● If you use multiple applications at once, network
applications, or applications that need a connection
to another device, the battery will drain quickly. To
avoid disconnecting from the network or losing
power during a data transfer, always use these
applications after fully charging the battery.
●●
Assembling
15
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.
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.
●● The device may heat up while charging. 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.
Assembling
16
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 while the device is
connected to the travel adapter. Doing so may damage
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
device should remain close to the electrical socket while
charging.
About the battery charging icons
When you charge the battery while the device is off, the
following icons will show the current battery charging status:

corrupt data stored on the card.
Assembling

application. If you receive error messages when launching the
camera, try the following:
●● Charge the battery or replace it with a battery that is fully
charged.
●● Free some memory by transferring files to a computer or
deleting files from your device.
●● Restart the device. If you are still having trouble with
the camera application after trying these tips, contact a
Samsung Service Centre.
Troubleshooting
194
Error messages appear when launching the FM radio
The FM radio application on your Samsung mobile device
uses the headset cable as an antenna. Without a headset
connected, the FM radio will be unable to receive radio
stations. To use the FM radio, first ensure that the headset
is properly connected. Next, scan for and save the available
radio stations.
If you still cannot use the FM radio after performing these
steps, try accessing your desired station with another radio
receiver. If you can hear the station with another receiver,
your device may require service. Contact a Samsung Service
Centre.
Error messages appear when opening music files
Some music files may not play on your Samsung mobile
device for a variety of reasons. If you receive error messages
when opening music files on your device, try the following:
●● Free some memory by transferring files to a computer or
deleting files from your device.
●● Ensure that the music file is not Digital Rights Management
(DRM)-protected. If the file is DRM-protected, ensure that
you have the appropriate licence or key to play the file.
●● Ensure that your device supports the file type.
Troubleshooting
195
Another Bluetooth device is not located
Ensure that the Bluetooth wireless feature is activated on
your device.
●● Ensure that the Bluetooth wireless feature is activated on
the device you wish to connect to, if necessary.
●● Ensure that your device and the other Bluetooth device are
within the maximum Bluetooth range (10 m).
●●
If the tips above do not solve the problem, contact a Samsung
Service Centre.
A connection is not established when you connect
the device to a computer
Ensure that the USB cable you are using is compatible with
your device.
●● Ensure that you have the proper drivers installed and
updated on your computer.
●● If you are a Windows XP user, ensure that you have
Windows XP Service Pack 3 or higher installed on your
computer.

Player 10 or higher installed on your computer.
