available in your region or offered by your service
provider.
• You can purchase 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

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)

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.
5 Replace the back cover.
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

read all of the following information before using your device.
Do not charge the battery with chargers that are not
approved by the manufacturer
Warning: To prevent electric shock, fire, and
explosion
Your device may malfunction and the risk of electric shock is increased.
Do not use damaged power cords or plugs, or loose
electrical sockets
Do not touch your device and the power cord with wet
hands
Do not bend or damage the power cord
Do not use your device while charging and do not
disconnect the charger by just pulling the cord
Do not short-circuit the charger or the battery
Do not use your device during a thunderstorm
Do not handle a damaged or leaking Lithium Ion (Li-Ion)
battery
For safe disposal of your Li-Ion batteries, contact your nearest authorized
service center.
Handle and dispose of batteries and chargers with care
• Use only Samsung-approved batteries and chargers specifically
designed for your device. Incompatible batteries and chargers can
cause serious injuries or damage to your device.
• Never dispose of batteries or devices in a fire. Follow all local
regulations when disposing of used batteries or devices.
Safety precautions 117
• Never place batteries or devices on or in heating devices, such as
microwave ovens, stoves, or radiators. Batteries may explode when
overheated.
• Never crush or puncture the battery. Avoid exposing the battery to
high external pressure, which can lead to an internal short circuit and
overheating.
Protect the device, batteries, and chargers from damage
• Avoid exposing your device and batteries to very cold or very hot
temperatures.
• Extreme temperatures can cause the deformation of the device and
reduce the charging capacity and life of your device and batteries.
• Prevent batteries from contacting metal objects, as this can create a
connection between the + and – terminals of your batteries and lead to
temporary or permanent battery damage.
• Never use a damaged charger or battery.
Caution: Follow all safety warnings and
regulations when using your device in
restricted areas
Turn off your device where prohibited
Comply with all regulations that restrict the use of a mobile device in a
particular area.
Do not use your device near other electronic devices
Most electronic devices use radio frequency signals. Your device may
interfere with other electronic devices.
Do not use your device near a pacemaker
• Avoid using your device within a 15 cm range of a pacemaker if
possible, as your device can interfere with the pacemaker.
• If you must use your device, keep at least 15 cm away from the
pacemaker.
• To minimize the possible interference with a pacemaker, use your
device on the opposite side of your body from the pacemaker.
118 Safety precautions
Do not use your device in a hospital or near medical
equipment that can be interfered with by radio frequency
If you personally use any medical equipment, contact the manufacturer
of the equipment to ensure the safety of your equipment from radio
frequency.
If you are using a hearing aid, contact the manufacturer for
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 refueling 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:
• Use a hands-free device.
• 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.
Safety precautions 119
• Place your device within 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.
• Let the person you are speaking with know you are driving. 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. If you need to make a call, dial only a few numbers, check
the road and your mirrors, then continue.
• 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.
120 Safety precautions
• 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

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
0.782 mW/g. 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.
