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

Charge the battery
Before using the device for the first time, you must charge
the battery.
You can charge the device with the provided travel adapter
or by connecting the device to a PC with a PC data cable.
›› Charge with the travel adapter
1 Open the cover of the multifunction jack on the top of
the device.
2 Plug the small end of the travel adapter into the
multifunction jack.
Use only Samsung-approved chargers and cables.
Unauthorized chargers or cables can cause batteries
to explode or damage your device.
When your battery is low, a warning tone and a low
battery pop-up message will appear. 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.
12 Assembling
Connecting the travel adapter improperly may
cause serious damage to the device. Any damage
caused by misuse is not covered by the warranty.
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
Center.
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 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 outlet to interrupt the power supply. The travel
adapter should remain close to the socket when
in use.

Before charging, ensure that your PC is turned on.
1 Open the cover of the multifunction jack on the top of

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 (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).
14 Assembling

memory cards, but some brands may not be fully
compatible with your device. Using an incompatible
memory card may damage your device or the

Allow only qualified personnel to service your device
Allowing non-qualified personnel to service your device may result in
damage to your device and will void your manufacturer’s warranty.
• Do not remove a card while the device is transferring or accessing
Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) certification
information
Be sure to back up important data
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
0.140 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.
For more information about the SAR and related EU standards, visit the
Samsung website.
Handle memory cards with care
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-colored contacts or terminals with your fingers or
metal objects. If dirty, wipe the card with a soft cloth.
Samsung is not responsible for data loss.
