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 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 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.
To install the SIM or USIM card and battery,

2 Remove the back cover.
Be careful not to damage your fingernails when you

●● 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 down.
Your device has two SIM card slots to allow you to use two
SIM or USIM cards, and switch between them. Use the left
slot for your primary, or most frequently used, SIM or USIM
card. Use the right slot for a secondary SIM or USIM card.
SIM card 1
SIM card 2
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 microSIM card or a
microSIM card with an unauthorised holder may
cause damage to the SIM card slot of your device.
●●
Assembling
11
When you insert two USIM cards into your device,
the card in the secondary slot will be used for a GPRS
network.
4 Insert the battery.
5 Replace the back cover.
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.
You can charge the device with a travel adapter or by
connecting the device to a PC with a USB cable.
Use only Samsung-approved chargers and cables.
Unauthorised chargers or cables can cause batteries to
explode or damage your device.
Assembling

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.
●●
››Charge with a travel adapter

2 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 Centre.
3 When the battery is fully charged, first unplug the travel
adapter from the device and then from the power outlet.
Do not remove the battery before removing the travel
adapter. Doing this 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
device should remain close to the electrical socket while
charging.
››Charge with a USB cable
Before charging, ensure that your PC is turned on.
1 Plug one end (micro-USB) of the USB cable into the
multifunction jack.

PC.
Depending on the type of USB cable you are using, it
may take some time before charging begins.
3 When the battery is fully charged, first unplug the USB
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 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 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 memory cards.
●● When you insert a memory card in your device, the
file directory of the memory card will appear in the
external_sd folder.
