Assembling

Unpack

Check your product box for the following items:

Mobile device

S pen with 8 extra tips

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

11

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.

The back cover of your device is made of metal. Use only the ETA-P12X series charger with your device to prevent electric shock.

Assembling

12

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

13

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.

Insert a memory card (optional)

To store additional 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).

Assembling

14

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 extStorages folder under the internal memory.

1

2

Open the cover of the memory card slot.

Insert a memory card with the gold-coloured contacts facing down.

3

4

Push the memory card in the memory card slot until it locks in place.

Close the memory card cover.

Assembling

15

Before removing a memory card, first unmount it for safe removal.

Remove the memory card

Open the application list and select Settings → Storage

→ Unmount SD card .

Open the memory card cover.

Push the memory card gently until it disengages from the device.

Remove the memory card.

Close the memory card cover.

Do not remove a memory card while the device is transferring or accessing information, as this could result in loss of data or damage to the memory card or device.

Format the memory card

Formatting your memory card on a PC may cause incompatibilities with your device. Format the memory card only on the device.

Open the application list and select Settings → Storage →

Erase SD card → Format SD card → Erase everything .

Before formatting the memory card, remember to make backup copies of all important data stored on your device. The manufacturer’s warranty does not cover loss of data resulting from user actions.
