Basics

Bottom cover

Removing the back cover

Remove the back cover to access the battery compartment and SIM card slot.

1.With the phone turned off, hold your phone securely with the front facing down.

2.With your thumb or finger, lift up the back cover from the small notch at the top of the phone.

Replacing the back cover

1.Secure the bottom part of the back cover first by aligning the tabs on the back cover into the openings located inside the battery compartment.

2.Press the sides and the top part of the back cover down to lock the cover into place. You will hear a click when the back cover is locked in place.

Basics

SIM card

The SIM card contains your phone number, service details, and phonebook/message memory. Your phone supports both 1.8V and 3 V SIM cards.

Some legacy SIM cards may not function with your phone. You should consult with your mobile operator for a replacement SIM card. There may be fees for this service.

Inserting the SIM card

1.Take the back cover off. See “Removing the back cover.”

2.Take the battery out. See “Battery.”

3.Insert the SIM card with its gold contacts facing down and its cut-offcorner facing out.

4.Slide the SIM card all the way in.

Removing the SIM card

1.Take the back cover off. See “Removing the back cover.”

2.Take the battery out. See “Battery.”

3.Press down on the SIM card with your finger and slide the SIM card out.

10 Basics

Battery

Your phone uses a rechargeable battery. Please use only original batteries and accessories that came with your phone or replacements that we recommend.

How long the battery can last before it needs recharging depends on how you use your phone. Among these are the phone features and accessories you use (for example, leaving your Bluetooth connection always on uses more power). Long phone calls and frequent web browsing use up much battery power. Also, consider your location: poor signal strength from your mobile network and extreme temperature make the battery work harder.

Inserting the battery

1.Remove the back cover. See “Removing the back cover.”

2.Insert the battery with its exposed copper contacts into the phone first—makesure that the ribbon strip extends out of the battery case to make it easy to remove the battery!

The exposed copper contacts should be on the left when you insert the battery.

3. Gently push the battery into place.

Removing the battery

1.Make sure the phone is turned off.

2.Take the back cover off. See “Removing the back cover.”

3.Pull the ribbon strip upward to release the battery.

11 Basics

Charging the battery

The battery is partially charged when shipped. Before you turn on and start using your phone, it is recommended that you charge the battery. Some batteries perform best after several full charge/discharge cycles.

To charge the battery, please use only the power adapter and USB cable that come with your phone.

Don’t remove the battery from the phone while you’re charging it with the power or car adapter.

1.Connect the large end of the USB cable to the power adapter.

2.Connect the small end of the USB cable to the phone.

3.Plug in the power adapter to an electrical outlet to start charging the battery. Your phone may turn on when the battery is being charged.

As the battery is being charged, the notification LED shows a solid red light when the battery is being charged. The light turns to solid green when the phone is fully charged.

When you charge the battery while the phone is on, the charging battery icon is displayed in the status bar of the Start screen. After the battery has been fully charged, a full battery iconwill be displayed in the status bar of the Start screen.

As a safety precaution, the battery stops charging when it overheats.

Switching your phone on or off

Switching your phone on

Press the POWER button. Easy.

When you turn on the phone for the first time, you’ll need to set it up. Go to “Setting up your phone for the first time” and we’ll take you through it.

Switching your phone off

1.If the display is off, press the POWER button to turn it back on.

2.Unlock your phone if the Lock screen is displayed. See “Unlocking the screen” in the Getting started chapter.

3.Press and hold the POWER button until you see the word “Goodbye” onscreen.

12 Basics

Entering your PIN

Most SIM cards come with a PIN (personal identification number) set by your mobile operator. If you’re asked for a PIN, enter it and then tap enter.

To find out how to enable, disable, or change the PIN, see “Protecting your SIM card with a PIN” in the Security chapter.

If you enter the PIN wrong three times, your SIM card is blocked. No problem. Just contact your mobile operator and ask for the PUK (PIN Unblocking Key).

Finger gestures

Tap

When you want to type using the keyboard, select items onscreen such as apps

 

and settings, or press onscreen buttons, simply tap them with your finger.

 

 

Press and hold

To open the available options for an item (e.g. contact or link in a web page),

 

simply press and hold the item.

 

 

Swipe or slide

To swipe or slide means to quickly drag your finger vertically or horizontally across

 

the screen.

 

 

Drag

Press and hold your finger with some pressure before you start to drag. While

 

dragging, do not release your finger until you have reached the target position.

 

 

Flick

Flicking the screen is similar to swiping, except that you need to swipe your finger

 

in light, quicker strokes. This finger gesture is always in a vertical direction, such as

 

when flicking the contacts or message list.

 

 

Rotate

For most screens, you can automatically change the screen orientation from

 

portrait to landscape by turning the phone sideways. When entering text, you can

 

turn the phone sideways to bring up a bigger keyboard.

 

 

Pinch

In some applications, like Pictures or the web browser, you can “pinch” the screen

 

using 2 fingers (for example, thumb and index fingers) to zoom in or zoom out

 

when viewing a picture or a web page.

 

 

Using the kickstand

Want to sit back and watch a movie, or have a conference call without having to hold your phone? No problem! Just pull the kickstand out and set the phone on a flat surface, and you’re ready to go.
