Assembling
Unpack
Check your product box for the following items:
●● Mobile device
●● 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.
●●
Assembling
10
Install 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.
To install the SIM or USIM card,
1 Open the cover of the SIM card slot.
2 Insert the SIM or USIM card with the gold-coloured
contacts facing down.
3 Close the cover of the SIM card slot.
Charge the battery
Your device has a built-in battery. Before using the device for
the first time, you must charge the battery.
Use only Samsung-approved chargers. Unauthorised
chargers can cause batteries to explode or damage your
device.
Assembling
11
Charge the battery only with a charger. You cannot
charge the battery with the USB cable.
●● 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 USB power adapter
connected. Allow a depleted battery to charge for a
few minutes before you try to turn on the device.
●●
1 Connect the USB cable to the USB power adapter and
then plug the end of the USB cable into the multifunction
jack.
The shape of the USB power adapter may differ
depending on your region.
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.
Assembling
12
2 Plug the USB power 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 USB power adapter from
the power outlet or unplug the USB cable 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 USB
power adapter and USB cable from the device and then
from the power outlet.
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 outlet when not in use to avoid
wasting power. The USB power adapter should remain
close to the socket when in use.

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 it at least 15 cm away from the pacemaker.
• To minimise the possible interference with a pacemaker, use your device on
the opposite side of your body from the pacemaker.
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.
Safety precautions
123
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
• Always comply with regulations, instructions and signs in potentially
explosive environments.
• Do not use your device at refuelling 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.
Do not use a headset while operating an automobile, motorcycle,
or bicycle
• Doing so can lead to a serious accident and may be prohibited by law in
some areas.
• Using a headset while walking or jogging on roads or in crosswalks can lead
to a serious accident.
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.
• Position your device within easy reach. Be able to access your wireless device
without removing your eyes from the road.
Safety precautions
124
• If an internet call application is available, 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.
• If an internet call application is available, 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.
• If an internet call application is available, 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.
• If an internet call application is available, use your device to call for help.
Dial a local emergency number in the case of fire, traffic accident, or medical
emergencies.
• If an internet call application is available, 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 danger, call a local emergency number.
• If an internet call application is available, call roadside assistance or a special,
non-emergency assistance number when necessary. If you see a brokendown vehicle posing no serious hazard, a broken traffic signal, a minor traffic
accident where no one appears injured, or a vehicle you know to be stolen,
call roadside assistance or another special, non-emergency number.
Proper care and use of your mobile device
Keep your device dry
• Humidity and all types of liquids may damage device parts or electronic
circuits.
• Do not turn on your device if it is wet. If your device is already on, turn it off
and remove the battery immediately (if the device will not turn off or you
cannot remove the battery, leave it as-is). Then, dry the device with a towel
and take it to a service centre.
• Liquids will change the colour of the label that indicates water damage
inside the device. Water damage to your device can void your manufacturer’s
warranty.

Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) certification
information
THIS DEVICE MEETS INTERNATIONAL GUIDELINES FOR EXPOSURE
TO RADIO WAVES
Your mobile device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed not to
exceed the limits for exposure to radio waves (radio frequency electromagnetic
fields) recommended by international guidelines. The guidelines were
developed by an independent scientific organisation (ICNIRP) and include
a substantial safety margin designed to assure the safety of all persons,
regardless of age and health.
The radio wave exposure guidelines use a unit of measurement known as the
Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit for mobile devices is 2.0 W/kg.
