Text Conventions
This manual provides condensed information about how to use
your phone. To make this possible, the following text conventions
are used to represent often-used steps:
Example: “From the Home screen, press Menu, then touch Settings ➔
Wireless & networks ➔ Wi-Fi settings.”
Battery
Your phone is powered by a rechargeable, standard Li-Ion
battery. A Wall/USB Charger (Charging Head and USB cable) are
included with the phone, for charging the battery.
Note: The battery comes partially charged. You must fully charge the battery
before using your phone for the first time. A fully discharged battery
requires up to 4 hours of charge time.
After the first charge, you can use the phone while charging.
Warning!: Use only Samsung-approved charging devices and batteries.
Samsung accessories are designed to maximize battery life. Using
other accessories may invalidate your warranty and may cause
damage.
Battery Indicator
When the battery is weak and only a few minutes of talk time
remain, the battery icon ( ) blinks and the device sounds a
warning tone at regular intervals. In this condition, your phone
conserves its remaining battery power, not by turning off the
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.
➔ Arrows are used to represent the sequence of
selecting successive options in longer, or repetitive,
procedures.6

social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, and MySpace.

phone, you may have multiple contacts for one person.

updated, because any changes that your contacts make to their
information in the respective accounts is automatically updated
the next time you synchronize with the account.
