Important Safety Precautions
1. Do not expose the battery charger or adapter to direct sunlight or
use it in places with high humidity, such as a bathroom.
2. Do not use harsh chemicals (such as alcohol, benzene, thinners,
etc.) or detergents to clean your phone. This could cause a fire.
3. Do not drop, strike, or shake your phone severely. It may harm
the internal circuit boards of the phone.
4. Do not use your phone in high explosive areas as the phone may
generate sparks.
5. Do not damage the power cord by bending, twisting, pulling, or
heating. Do not use the plug if it is loose as it may cause a fire or
electric shock.
6. Do not place any heavy items on the power cord. Do not allow
the power cord to be crimped as it may cause electric shock or
fire.
7. Do not handle the phone with wet hands while it is being
charged. It may cause an electric shock or seriously damage your
phone.
8. Do not disassemble the phone.
9. Do not place or answer calls while charging the phone as it may
short-circuit the phone and/or cause electric shock or fire.
10. Do not hold or let the antenna come in contact with your body
during a call.
11. Make sure that no sharp-edged items such as animal’s teeth or
nails, come into contact with the battery. This could cause a fire.
Important Safety Precautions
12. Store the battery out of reach of children.
13. Be careful that children do not swallow any parts (such as
rubber, plugs, earphone, connection parts of the phone,
etc.).This could cause asphyxiation or suffocation resulting in
serious injury or death.
14. Unplug the power cord and charger during lightning storms to
avoid electric shock or fire.
15. Only use the batteries and chargers provided by LG. The
warranty will not be applied to products provided by other
suppliers.
16. Only authorized personnel should service the phone and its
accessories. Faulty installation or service may result in accidents
and consequently invalidate the warranty.
17. Your service provider programs one or more emergency phone
numbers, such as 911, that you can call under any circumstances,
even when your phone is locked. Your phone’s preprogrammed
emergency number(s) may not work in all locations, and
sometimes an emergency call cannot be placed due to network,
environmental, or interference issues.
18. Your phone is an electronic device that generates heat during
normal operation. Extremely prolonged, direct skin contact in the
absence of adequate ventilation may result in discomfort or
minor burns. Therefore, use care when handling your phone
during or immediately after operation.

entry. If you find that unrelated contacts were joined in error, you can
separate them.

are configured to sync contacts, changes to the contact from the Google
Account are synced to that account on the web, but the information from
the Exchange account will remain unchanged.

Gmail
This email client is Google’s web-based email service. (See Synchronize
Your Google Account on page 160.)
From a computer, launch your preferred web browser and navigate to
www.gmail.com. Depending on your synchronization settings, Gmail (along
with calendar events, phone numbers and other contact information) on
your phone is automatically synchronized between your phone and your
Gmail account on the web.
Create a Google Account
You must create and/or sign into a Google Account to use Gmail™, Google
Talk™, Google Calendar™, and other Google Apps. Signing into a Google
Account is also necessary to download applications from the Google Play
Store app to sync your data (if applicable) with the Google servers, and to
take advantage of any other available Google services on your phone.
If you don’t have a Google Account, you will be prompted to create one. If
you have an enterprise account through your company or other
organization, your IT department may have special instructions on how to
sign into that account.
1. From a computer, or from your phone’s Browser, navigate to www.
google.com.
2. On the main page, select Sign In > SIGN UP.
3. Follow the on-screen prompts to create your free account.

information.
IMPORTANT Some applications, such as Calendar, work only with the primary Google Account
(the first Google Account set up with your phone). If you plan to use more than one
Google Account with your phone, be sure to sign into the one you want to use with
such applications first. When you sign in, your contacts, Gmail messages, Calendar
events, and other information from these applications and services on the web can
be synchronized with your phone. You will be prompted to sign in or to create a
Google Account the first time you start an application that requires one, such as
Gmail or Play Store.

Bluetooth
Bluetooth is a short-range communications technology that allows you to
connect wirelessly to a number of Bluetooth phones, such as headsets and
hands-free car kits, Bluetooth-enabled handhelds, computers, printers, and
wireless phones. The Bluetooth communication range is usually up to
approximately 30 feet.
Turn Bluetooth On and Off
By default, your phone’s Bluetooth feature is set to Off. Turning Bluetooth
on makes your phone “discoverable” by other in-range Bluetooth phones.
NOTE
Activating Bluetooth can drain your battery faster and reduce your available usage times.
To conserve your phone's battery, turn off Bluetooth when not in use. Always turn off
your Bluetooth when you are in locations that prohibit its use.
Turn Bluetooth On

Pairing Bluetooth Devices
The Bluetooth pairing process allows you to establish trusted connections
between your phone and another Bluetooth device. When you pair devices,
they share a passkey, allowing for fast, secure connections while bypassing
the discovery and authentication process.
Pair Your Phone
1. Verify your Bluetooth is active.
2. From the Bluetooth settings page, tap Make phone visible to make
your phone visible. Your phone must be visible to successfully pair with
an external device.
3. Tap Search for devices. (Your phone will display a list of discovered
in-range Bluetooth devices.)
4. Tap a device from the list to initiate pairing.
5. Depending on the device, you might have to tap Pair to accept the
passkey (if they match), confirm matching passkeys, or enter the
passkey or PIN Code.

Due to different specifications and features of other Bluetooth-compatible phones,
display and operations may be different, and functions such as transfer or exchange may
not be possible with all Bluetooth compatible phones.
Pairing between two Bluetooth phones is a one-time process. Once a pairing has been
created, the phones will continue to recognize their partnership and exchange
information without having to re-enter a passcode again.
Disconnect a Paired Phone
Disconnecting a paired device breaks the connection between the device
and your phone, but retains the pairing. At a later point when you wish to
reconnect the device, there is no need to setup the connection information
again.
1. Verify your Bluetooth is active.
2. From the Bluetooth settings page, tap
next to the previously paired
device (under the PAIRED PHONES section).
3. Tap Unpair.
NOTE
Disconnections are manually done but often occur automatically if the paired device goes
out of range of your phone or if it is powered off.
Send Items via Bluetooth
Depending on your paired phone’s settings and capabilities, you may be
able to send pictures, videos, Contacts information, or other items using a
Bluetooth connection.
