Get Started

The following topics give you all the information you need to set up your phone and Sprint service the first time.

Your Phone at a Glance

The following illustration outlines your phone’s primary features.

Set Up Your Phone

You must first install and charge the battery to begin setting up your phone.

1. Install the battery.

 Using the slot provided, gently lift the cover off the phone.

 Insert the battery, aligning the gold contacts on the battery with the gold contacts on the phone, and gently press the battery into place.

 Replace the battery compartment cover, making sure all the tabs are secure and there are no gaps around the cover.

2. Plug the USB cable into the Charger/Accessory Jack on the bottom of the phone.

3. Plug the other end of the USB cable into the Charging Head, and then plug the Charging Head into an electrical outlet to charge your battery. Fully charging a battery may take up to three hours.

Note: Your phone’s battery should have enough charge to turn the phone on and find a signal, run the setup application, set up voicemail, and make a call. You should fully charge the battery as soon as possible.

4. Press and hold the Power/Lock Key to turn the phone on.

Get Started

1

 If your phone is activated, it will turn on, search for Sprint service, and begin the setup application.

If your phone is not yet activated, see Activate Your Phone for more information.

Activate Your Phone

Depending on your account or how and where you purchased your phone, it may be ready to use or you may need to activate it on your Sprint account.

● If you purchased your phone at a Sprint Store, it is probably activated and ready to use.

● If you received your phone in the mail and it is for a new Sprint account or a new line of service, it is designed to activate automatically.

 When you turn the phone on for the first time, you should see a Hands Free Activation screen, which may be followed by a PRL Update screen and a Firmware Update screen.

Follow the onscreen instructions to continue.

● If you received your phone in the mail and you are activating a new phone for an existing number on your account (you’re swapping phones), you can activate on your computer online or directly on your phone.

 Activate on your computer:

• Go to sprint.com/activate and complete the online instructions to activate your phone.

 Activate on your phone:

• Turn on your new phone. (Make sure the old one is turned off.) Your phone will automatically attempt Hands-Free Activation.

• Follow the onscreen prompts to complete the activation process.

To confirm activation, make a phone call. If your phone is still not activated, visit sprint.com/support for assistance. If you do not have access to the Internet, call Sprint Customer Service at 1-888-211-4727.

Note : Do not press the Power/Lock Key while the phone is being activated. Pressing the

Power/Lock Key cancels the activation process.

Complete the Setup

After you turn on your phone and activate it, your phone displays a Welcome screen. From the Welcome screen follow the prompts to set up features and preferences on your phone.

Note: In some cases, you may be able to complete the setup process before your phone has been activated on your Sprint account.

1. At the Welcome screen, follow the onscreen instructions to complete setup for each topic. Tap

Next , or the right arrow, to move through the steps. You can skip options to continue to the next one. During setup, you may see these options:

 Accessibility : Configure settings to access settings to improve the accessibility of your phone’s features if you are visually impaired or hard of hearing.

 Wi-Fi : By default, your phone prompts you to use Wi-Fi when accessing data services. Tap a

Wi-Fi access point to connect to it, or you can continue setup using your phone’s connection to the wireless network.

 Samsung account : Some apps and features use your Samsung account. Sign in to your

Samsung account, or follow the prompts to create a new account.

 Got Google?

: Your phone uses your Google account to provide access to many features and apps. Complete the steps to sign in to your current Google account, or sign up for a new

Google account right from your phone. You can also skip signing in to your Google account, or sign in later.

 Google services : Select Google service preferences, including Backup, Location and

Communication options.

 This phone belongs to : Enter your First and Last name, to personalize Google features and apps.

 Dropbox: Dropbox provides Web-based “cloud” storage, so you can save your photos and videos. You can create a new account here, or sign in to your existing Dropbox account.

 Device name : Your device name is how you and other devices identify your phone, such as when sharing via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi Direct. If you want to use a different name, tap the field and enter a name.

2. Tap Finish to complete setup.

 You may see a series of informational or update screens. Follow the prompts to continue.

Note: During or after setup, you may see a Sprint Connections Optimizer notice. Read the notice and then touch I Agree to allow your phone to connect automatically to the best available data network, including Wi-Fi. To turn Connections Optimizer off at any time, Press Home , and then touch

Apps > Settings > More networks > Mobile networks > Connections optimizer

and uncheck the box. See Mobile Networks Settings for details.
