Getting started
Using dual SIM or USIM cards
If you insert two SIM or USIM cards, you can have two phone numbers or service providers for
a single device.
Activating SIM or USIM cards
Open the Apps screen, tap Settings → SIM card manager. Select a SIM or USIM card and tap
the Use SIM card switch to activate it.
Changing the display name and icon of SIM or USIM cards
Open the Apps screen, tap Settings → SIM card manager. Select a SIM or USIM card and tap

Charging the battery
Use the charger to charge the battery before using it for the first time. A computer can be also
used to charge the battery by connecting them via the USB cable.
Use only Samsung-approved chargers, batteries, and cables. Unapproved chargers or
cables can cause the battery to explode or damage the device.
• When the battery power is low, the battery icon appears empty.
• If the battery is completely discharged, the device cannot be turned on
immediately when the charger is connected. Allow a depleted battery to charge for
a few minutes before turning on the device.
• If you use multiple apps at once, network apps, or apps 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 apps after fully
charging the battery.
12
Getting started
Plug the small end of the charger into the multipurpose jack of the device, and plug the large
end of the charger into an electric socket.
Connecting the charger improperly may cause serious damage to the device. Any
damage caused by misuse is not covered by the warranty.
• The device can be used 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 charger from the device.
• While charging, the device may heat up. This is normal and should not affect the
device’s lifespan or performance. If the battery gets hotter than usual, the charger
may stop charging.
• If the device is not charging properly, take the device and the charger to a
Samsung Service Centre.
After fully charging, disconnect the device from the charger. First unplug the charger from the
device, and then unplug it from the electric socket.
Do not remove the battery before removing the charger. This may damage the
device.
To save energy, unplug the charger when not in use. The charger does not have a
power switch, so you must unplug the charger from the electric socket when not in
use to avoid wasting power. The charger should remain close to the electric socket
and easily accessible while charging.

• Use caution to insert the memory card right-side up.
• The device supports the FAT file system for memory cards. When inserting a card
formatted in a different file system, the device asks to reformat the memory card.
