Your phone features earSmart™, an intelligent voice processor that delivers a clear voice experience, allowing you to hear and be heard™ in
nearly any environment. earSmart technology uses the science of human hearing to distinguish sounds, identify your voice and suppress
surrounding noise, for clear conversations just about anywhere.
How Does It Work?
• The earSmart voice processor in your phone captures your voice and all the sounds around you.
• Working like the human ear, it processes and distinguishes these sounds, isolates your voice conversation, and removes background noise - from both ends
of a call.
• It also automatically equalizes and adjusts voice volume so you can hear and talk naturally, even in the noisiest places.
• With earSmart technology, you can talk where you want, and have clear conversations for mobile calls, video chats, even speakerphone calls, without
worrying about surrounding noise.

Section 1: Getting Started
This section explains how to start using your phone by first
configuring your hardware, activating your service, and then
setting up your voice mail.
Setting Up Your Phone
Prior to use it is necessary to install both the battery and SIM into
their corresponding internal compartments. The microSD™ card
slot is also located in this same internal area.
1.
Remove the back cover by inserting a fingernail into the slot
on the top of your phone (1).
2.
Lift the cover up and away from the phone (2).
Getting Started
1
3.
If necessary, remove the battery.
䊳
Carefully slide the SIM card into the SIM card socket (as
shown) until the card locks into place.
• Make sure that the card’s gold contacts face into the phone and
that the upper-left angled corner of the card is positioned as
shown.
Installing the SIM Card
When you subscribe to a cellular network, you are provided with a
plug-in SIM card loaded with your subscription details, such as
your PIN, available optional services, and many others features.
Important!: The plug-in SIM card information and its contacts can be easily
damaged by scratching or bending, so be careful when handling,
inserting, or removing the card. Keep all SIM cards out of reach of
small children.
Note: If the card is not inserted correctly, the phone will not detect the SIM
card. Re-orient the card back into the slot if the SIM is not detected.

Installing the Battery
1.
Insert the battery into the opening on the back of the phone,

Charging a Battery
Your device is powered by a rechargeable Li-ion battery. The
Travel Charger that is used to charge the battery, is included with
your device. Use only Samsung-approved batteries and chargers.
Note: Long backlight settings, searching for service, vibrate mode, web
browser use, and other variables may reduce the battery’s talk and
standby times.
Although you can use the phone while the battery is charging,
doing so will require additional charging time.
Note: You must fully charge the battery before using your phone for the first
time. A discharged battery recharges fully in approximately 4 hours.
Using the Travel Charger
Important!: Verify that the handset battery is installed prior to connection. If the
battery is not properly installed and the wall charger is connected,
the handset may power off and on continuously, preventing proper
operation.

Warning!: The touch screen responds best to a light touch from the pad of your
finger. Using excessive force or a metallic object when pressing on
the touch screen may damage the tempered glass surface and void
the warranty.
Note: Failure to unplug the wall charger before you remove the battery, can
cause damage to the phone.

backlight, but by entering the dimming mode. For a quick check of
your battery level, glance at the battery charge indicator located in
the upper-right corner of your device’s display. Solid color ( )
indicates a full charge.
When the battery level becomes too low, the phone automatically
turns off.
When charging is finished, remove the flat end from the
interface connector jack on the phone.

Joining Contacts
Joining Contact Information
Many people now maintain multiple email accounts, social
networking logins, and other similar account information. For
example, a Facebook account login name might differ from a
corporate email account login because they are maintained
separately and for different groups of people.
This device can synchronize with multiple accounts such as
Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Corporate email, and Google. When
you synchronize your phone with these accounts, each account
creates a separate contact entry in the Contacts list.
If one of your contacts (Amy Smith, for example) has a regular
email account that you maintain in Gmail, but also has a Facebook
account under her maiden and married name, as well as a Yahoo!
chat account, when you merge these accounts into your Contacts
list you can join all of her entries and view the information in one
record.
For more information about synchronizing accounts, see
“Synchronizing Accounts” on page 62.

addresses, etc. automatically update in your contacts list.

Wi-Fi
About Wi-Fi
Wi-Fi (short for “wireless fidelity” and sometimes referred to as
wifi) is a term used for certain types of Wireless Local Area
Networks (WLAN). These device types use an 802.11 wireless
specification to transmit and receive wireless data. Wi-Fi
communication requires access to an existing and accessible
Wireless Access Point (WAP). These WAPs can either be Open
(unsecured) as within most Hot Spots, or Secured (requiring
knowledge of the Router name and password).
