8
Charge the Battery
Before using the phone for the first time, you must charge
the battery. You can charge the phone with the provided
travel adapter or by connecting the phone to a PC with a PC
data cable.
introducing your phone
Only use Samsung-approved chargers and cables.
Unauthorized chargers or cables can cause batteries
to explode or damage your phone.
When your battery is low, the phone will emit a
warning tone and display a low battery message. The
battery icon
will also be empty and turn red. If the
battery level becomes too low, the phone will
automatically power off. Recharge the battery to
continue using the phone.
9
If the battery is completely discharged, you cannot
turn the phone on, even with the travel adaptor
connected. Allow a depleted battery to charge for a
few minutes before you try to turn on the device.
To charge the battery using the travel adapter:
1. Open the cover to the multifunction jack at the bottom of
the phone.

outlet.
Do not remove the battery before removing the travel
adapter. Doing so might cause damage to the phone.
To save energy, unplug the travel adapter when it is
not in use. The travel adapter does not have a power
switch, so you must unplug the travel adapter from the
outlet to interrupt the power supply. The travel adapter
should remain close to the socket when in use.
5. Close the cover to the multifunction jack.
To charge the battery using the PC data cable:
Before charging, ensure that your PC is turned on.
1. Open the cover to the multifunction jack at the bottom of

not function due to an unstable power supply. If this
happens, unplug the travel adapter from the phone.
• While charging, the battery might heat up. This is
normal and should not affect the phone’s lifespan or
performance.
• If your phone is not charging properly, bring the
phone and the charger to a Samsung Service
Center.
4. When the battery is fully charged (the battery icon
is
no longer moving), unplug the travel adapter from the
power outlet and then from the phone.

memory card. Your phone accepts microSD™ or
microSDHC™ memory cards up to 32 GB (depending on
the memory card manufacturer and type).

memory cards but some brands might not be fully
compatible with your phone. Using an incompatible
memory card might damage your phone or the
memory card and can corrupt data stored on the card.
• Your phone only supports the FAT file structure for
memory cards. If you insert a card formatted with a
different file structure, your phone will prompt 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 into your phone,
the file directory of the memory card will appear in
the /sdcard/external_sd folder under the internal
memory (moviNAND™).
To insert a memory card:
1. Remove the back cover and battery.
11
2. Insert a memory card with the gold-coloured contacts
facing down.
Do not remove the memory card while the phone is
transferring or accessing information, as this might
result in the loss of data or damage to the memory
card or phone.

health and safety
information
Comply with the following precautions to avoid dangerous or
illegal situations and to ensure peak performance of your
mobile phone.
Getting the Most Out of Your Reception
Keeping Tabs on Signal Strength
The quality of each call you make or receive depends on the
signal strength in your area. Your phone informs you of the
current signal strength by displaying a number of bars next
to the signal strength icon. The more bars displayed, the
stronger the signal. If you’re inside a building, being near a
window may give you better reception.
Understanding How Your Phone Operates
Your phone is basically a radio transmitter and receiver.
When it’s turned on, it receives and transmits radio
frequency (RF) signals. When you use your phone, the
system handling your call controls the power level. This
power can range from 0.006 watts to 0.2 watts in digital
mode.
125
Maintaining Your Phone’s Peak Performance
The design of your phone complies with updated NCRP
standards described below. In 1991-92, the Institute of
Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and the
American National Standards Institute (ANSI) joined in
updating ANSI’s 1982 standard for safety levels with respect
to human exposure to RF signals. More than 120 scientists,
engineers and physicians from universities, government
health agencies and industries developed this updated
standard after reviewing the available body of research. In
1993, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)
adopted this updated standard in a regulation. In August
1996, the FCC adopted hybrid standard consisting of the
existing ANSI/IEEE standard and the guidelines published
by the National Council of Radiation Protection and
Measurements (NCRP).
There are several simple guidelines for operating your
phone properly and maintaining safe, satisfactory service.
• Speak directly into the mouthpiece.
• Avoid exposing your phone and accessories to rain or
liquid spills. If your phone does get wet, immediately turn
the power off and remove the battery. If it’s inoperable,
return it to a dealer store or call Customer Support for
service.
For the best care of your phone, only authorized
personnel should service your phone and
accessories. Faulty service may void the warranty.

Phone
Failure to follow the instructions outlined may lead to serious
personal injury and possible property damage.
health and safety information
Excessive exposure to sound at high volumes can
cause hearing damage. Always turn the volume
down before plugging the headphones into an audio
source and use only the minimum volume setting
necessary to hear your conversation or music.
Using Your Phone While Driving
Talking on your phone while driving (or operating the phone
without a hands-free phone) is prohibited in some
jurisdictions. Laws vary as to specific restrictions.
Remember that safety always comes first.
When using your phone in the car:
127
• Get to know your phone and its features, such as speed
dial and re-dial.
• When available, use a hands-free phone.
• Position your phone within easy reach.
• Let the person you are speaking to know you are driving;
if necessary, suspend the call in heavy traffic or
hazardous weather conditions.
• Do not take notes or look up phone numbers while
driving.
• Dial sensibly and assess the traffic; if possible, place
calls when stationary or before pulling into traffic.
• Do not engage in stressful or emotional conversations
that may divert your attention from the road.
• Dial 911 to report serious emergencies. It’s free from
your wireless phone.
• Use your phone to help others in emergencies.
• Call roadside assistance or a special non-emergency
wireless number when necessary.
Following Safety Guidelines
To operate your phone safely and efficiently, always follow
any special regulations in a given area. Turn your phone off
in areas where use is forbidden or when it may cause
interference or danger.
Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from radio
frequency (RF) signals. However, RF signals from wireless
phones may affect inadequately shielded electronic
equipment.
RF signals may affect improperly installed or inadequately
shielded electronic operating systems and/or entertainment
systems in motor vehicles. Check with the manufacturer or
their representative to determine if these systems are
adequately shielded from external RF signals. Also check
Consult the manufacturer of any personal medical phones,
such as pacemakers and hearing aids, to determine if they
are adequately shielded from external RF signals.
Always turn off the phone in health care facilities and
request permission before using the phone near
medical equipment.
Turning Off Your Phone Before Flying
Turn off your phone before boarding any aircraft. To prevent
possible interference with aircraft systems, the U.S. Federal
Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations require you to
have permission from a crew member to use your phone
while the plane is on the ground. To prevent any risk of
interference, FCC regulations prohibit using your phone
while the plane is in the air.

Information to User
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with
the limits of a Class B digital phone, pursuant to Part 15 of
the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide
reasonable protection against harmful interference in a
residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and
can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and
used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful
interference to radio communications. However, there is no
guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular
installation; if this equipment does cause harmful
interference to radio or television reception, which can be

chargers. The use of any unauthorized accessories may be
dangerous and void the phone warranty if said accessories
cause damage or a defect to the phone.
health and safety information
The SAR value of a phone is the result of an extensive
testing, measuring and calculation process. It does not
represent how much RF the phone emits. All phone models
are tested at their highest value in strict laboratory settings.
But when in operation, the SAR of a phone can be
substantially less than the level reported to the FCC. This is
because of a variety of factors including its proximity to a
base station antenna, phone design and other factors. What
is important to remember is that each phone meets strict
federal guidelines. Variations in SARs do not represent a
variation in safety.
All phones must meet the federal standard, which
incorporates a substantial margin of safety. As stated above,
variations in SAR values between different model phones do
not mean variations in safety. SAR values at or below the
federal standard of 1.6 W/kg are considered safe for use by
the public.
133
The highest reported SAR values of the I9100M are:
GSM850: Head: 0.11 W/Kg; Body-worn: 0.49 W/Kg
GSM1900: Head: 0.13 W/Kg; Body-worn: 0.79 W/Kg
WCDMA2: Head: 0.16 W/Kg; Body-worn: 0.96 W/Kg
WCDMA5: Head: 0.09 W/Kg; Body-worn: 0.49 W/Kg
