IMPORTANT INFORMATION
The following topics provide important information that should be read prior to using your HTC Desire 626s.
RADIO FREQUENCY EXPOSURE OPERATING
INSTRUCTIONS
This device was tested for compliance with the applicable FCC and Industry Canada specific absorption rate (SAR) limits for radio frequency (RF) exposure during typical body-worn operations. To ensure that RF exposure levels remain at or below the tested levels, use a belt-clip, holster, or similar accessory that maintains a minimum separation distance of 1.0 cm between your body and the device, with either the front or back of the device facing towards your body. Such accessories should not contain any metallic components. Body-worn accessories that do not meet these specifications may not ensure compliance with applicable SAR limits and their use should be avoided.
IMPORTANT NOTE ON RECOVERABLE DATA
Files and other data that have been deleted, cleared, removed, or erased from your device may still be recoverable by third-party data recovery software. Even a factory reset may not permanently erase all data from your phone, including personal information.

Capture Better Photos
Here are some tips on how to improve the quality of your photos on your phone.
Improve Focus and Sharpness
n Your phone’s camera has autofocus, which works best on a subject that is not moving too much. To change the focus, on the Viewfinder, tap the one you want to focus on.
n If the subject is moving, on the Viewfinder, touch and hold the subject to lock the focus.
n You can manually adjust the sharpness of a photo by editing in the Gallery app. You can also set the sharpness before taking a photo in the Camera settings. Generally, it is better to sharpen a blurry image rather than to reduce the sharpness in an image.
Take Well-lit Photos
n Your phone automatically adjusts the focus and exposure. If the image appears underexposed or appears dark on the Viewfinder screen, tap a part of the image that is in shadow. Conversely, tap a well-lit object in the image if the image seems to be overexposed. Focus on an object with a neutral tone for a balanced exposure. Keep in mind that tapping on another object may shift the focus from your subject.

Use HTC Backup
Save the time and frustration of restoring your content when you do a factory reset or you lose, damage, or buy another phone. On your phone, use HTC Backup to do a regular backup to the cloud so you can easily restore your content next time. HTC Backup uses your Google Drive storage to keep your content and settings. It can back up and restore the following: n Personalization settings. These include your feed sources in HTC BlinkFeed, widgets, wallpaper, Home screen layout, and ringtones.
n Accounts and passwords. HTC Backup stores the login credentials for many popular email and social network accounts, including Exchange ActiveSync, Outlook.com, and POP/IMAP.
n Apps and settings. These include your contacts stored on your phone, text messages, Web bookmarks, personal dictionary, Wi-Fi networks, free apps you’ve installed, grid size and sort order on the Apps screen, and more.
Backup Your Phone to Google Drive
Turn on HTC Backup to do a daily backup of your content over Wi-Fi. You can turn it on by selecting Back up phone daily while doing the on-device setup, or enable it in Settings.

1. When you turn on a new HTC phone for the first time or after a factory reset, choose to restore content, and then select Restore from HTC Backup on the Set up phone screen.
2. Make sure to sign in using the same account that you used to back up your phone before. Your backup history will then be displayed.

A TTY (teletypewriter, also known as a TDD or Text Telephone) is a telecommunications phone that allows people who are deaf, hard of hearing, or who have speech or language disabilities, to communicate by telephone.
Your phone is compatible with select TTY phones. Please check with the manufacturer of your TTY phone to ensure that it supports digital wireless transmission. Your phone and TTY phone will connect using a special cable that plugs into your phone’s headset jack. If this cable was not provided with your TTY phone, contact your TTY phone manufacturer to purchase the connector cable.
To turn TTY Mode on or off:
1. Tap > > Settings .
2. Tap Call.

Warning: 9-1-1 Emergency Calling
Virgin Mobile recommends that TTY users make emergency calls by other means, including Telecommunications Relay Services (TRS), analog cellular, and landline communications. Wireless TTY calls to 9-1-1 may be corrupted when received by public safety answering points (PSAPs), rendering some communications unintelligible. The problem encountered appears related to TTY equipment or software used by PSAPs. This matter has been brought to the attention of the FCC, and the wireless industry and the PSAP community are currently working to resolve this.

Settings
225
n Phone storage. This storage combines both the internal storage, where apps, email, data, and text messages are stored, and the file storage, where photos, videos, and music files are kept. When you are running out of phone storage, you can free up space by uninstalling apps, changing download settings, or moving files to your computer or to an online storage service.
n SD card (Storage card). Use a storage card (purchased separately) for storing more files. You can also set apps such as Camera to store directly to the card.
n USB storage. When you plug in an external USB storage device (such as a USB flash drive or an SD card reader), you can view photos and videos stored on the device right from Gallery and play songs stored on the device in Music. You can also open PDFs and edit Office documents.
You need a special cable adapter to connect your phone and a USB storage device. Your phone supports USB storage devices (except portable hard drives) up to 64 GB. n Online storage. If you’re using an online storage account that’s accessible from your phone, you can store your files to your online storage. Copy Files To or From Your Phone
You can copy your music, photos, and other files to your phone.
1. Connect your phone to the computer using the supplied USB cable. You’ll see options for viewing or importing files on the computer screen. 2. Choose to view files. 3. Copy the files from your computer to your phone, or vice versa. 4. After copying the files, disconnect the phone from the computer. Make More Storage Space
As you use your phone, you’ll accumulate data and fill its storage capacity over time. Here are some tips on how to increase storage space. Run the Storage Wizard
Free up space in the phone storage by uninstalling apps and deleting files you no longer need. In Settings, tap Storage > Make more space.
Store Files in Google Drive
Photos, email attachments, and other documents can be stored in Google Drive and accessed anywhere you are. You can set the Camera app to automatically upload photos to Google Drive. See Google Drive.
Note: Google Drive is a third-party app and is not provided by or associated with HTC Corporation.
Settings
226
Manage Photos and Videos
n Set the Camera app to automatically upload to a photo-sharing site or online storage. You can retrieve them from the photo-sharing site or online storage when needed.
Note: Using data services while uploading photos and videos may be costly. You may want to connect to Wi-Fi or disable auto upload of camera shots if you have a limited data plan.
n After taking continuous camera shots, keep only the best shot and discard the rest. n After editing a photo or trimming a video, the original file is kept. You can delete original files or move them to online storage or to your computer. n If you are only sending videos through MMS, use a lower resolution. High-resolution video takes up more space. In Camera settings, tap Video Quality to change the resolution. Back Up Apps Data
Keep only the most recent data from apps on your phone. You can back up calendars, contacts, and bookmarks or export text messages, and personal dictionaries. See Backup.
Disable Some Apps
Apps, even if not used often, may be running in the background and downloading data into the phone storage. If the app cannot be removed, you can disable it. In Settings, tap Apps, slide to the ALL tab and select the app that you want to disable. Tap Disable.
Encrypt Data on Your Phone
On the phone storage, you can encrypt data such as your accounts, settings, downloaded apps and their data, media, and other files. On a storage card, you can only encrypt files.
Set a lock screen PIN or password before starting encryption. Fully charge the battery and keep your phone connected to the power adapter during encryption. This process may take about an hour or so.
You cannot undo encryption on the phone storage. If you want to return to an unencrypted phone, you must perform a factory reset. Once you enable storage card encryption, only new files added after encryption will be encrypted. Files already on the card will not be encrypted. Also, storage card encryption doesn't reformat or erase your card. Encrypted files on the storage card can only be opened by the phone that encrypted them.
How to Encrypt Data on Your Phone

Battery Saving Tips
How long the battery can last before it needs recharging depends on how you use your phone. The power management features of your phone helps increase battery life. In times when you need to extend the battery life more, try out some of these tips.
Check Your Battery Usage
Monitoring your battery usage helps you identify what’s using the most power so you can choose what to do about it. For details, see Check Battery Usage.
Manage Your Connections
n Turn off wireless connections such as mobile data, Wi-Fi, or Bluetooth when not in use. n Turn GPS only when a precise location is needed, such as while using navigation or locationbased apps.
Settings
229
n If the Sleep mode option in Settings > Power is enabled, at low peak times, your phone will turn off the data connection after the screen has been off for 15 minutes and there’s no network activity (no downloads, streaming, or data usage). The data connection resumes when you switch the screen back on.
n Turn on Airplane mode when you don’t need any wireless connections and you don’t want to receive calls or messages. For details, see Airplane Mode.
Manage Your Display
Lowering the brightness, letting the display sleep when not in use, and keeping it simple helps save battery power. n Use automatic brightness (the default), or manually lower the brightness. n Set the screen timeout to a shorter time. n Don’t use a live wallpaper for your Home screen. Animation effects are nice to show off to other people but they drain your battery. Changing your wallpaper to a plain, black background can also help a little. The less color is displayed, the less battery is used. For more details, see Display & Gestures Settings.
Manage Your Apps
n Install the latest software and application updates. Updates sometimes include battery performance improvements.
n Uninstall or disable apps that you never use.
n Many apps run processes or sync data in the background even when you’re not using them. If there are apps that you don’t need anymore, uninstall them. See Uninstall Third-party Apps.
n If an app came preloaded and can’t be uninstalled, disabling the app can still prevent it from continuously running or syncing data. In Settings > Apps, swipe to the ALL tab, tap the app, and then tap Disable.
Limit Background Data and Sync
Background data and sync can use a lot of battery power if you have many apps syncing data in the background. It’s recommended not to let apps sync data too often. Determine which apps can be set with longer sync times, or sync manually.
n In Settings, tap Accounts & sync and check what types of data are being synced in your online accounts. When the battery is starting to run low, temporarily disable syncing some data. n If you have many email accounts, consider prolonging the sync time of some accounts. In the Mail app, select an account, tap > Settings > Sync, Send & Receive, and then adjust the settings under Sync schedule. Settings
230
n When you’re not traveling from one place to another, sync weather updates of only your current location, rather than in all of your named cities. Open the Weather app, and then tap > Edit
cities to remove unneeded cities. n Choose widgets wisely. Some widgets constantly sync data. Consider removing the ones that are not important from your Home screen. n In Play Store, tap > Settings > Auto-update apps > Do not auto-update apps if you’re fine with updating apps from Play Store manually.
More Battery Saving Tips
To squeeze in a little bit more battery power, try these tips.
n Tone down the ringtone and media volume.
n Minimize the use of vibration or sound feedback. In Settings, tap Sound & notification and choose which ones you don’t need and can disable.
n Check your apps’ settings as you may find more options to optimize the battery.

*Battery times (talk time, standby time, and more) are subject to network and phone usage.
A Standby time specification ("specification") is an industry standard that is only intended to allow comparison of different mobile devices under the same circumstances. Power consumption in a standby state is strongly dependent on factors including but not limited to network, settings, location, movement, signal strength and cell traffic. Comparisons of different mobile devices using such a specification can therefore only be done in a controlled laboratory environment. When using any mobile device in real life circumstances for which the mobile device is intended, the standby time could be considerably lower and will be strongly dependent on the factors as mentioned above.
