Get Started
The following topics give you all the information you need to set up your phone and Sprint
service the first time.
Your Phone at a Glance
The following illustration outlines your phone’s primary features.

Set Up Your Phone
You must first install and charge the battery to begin setting up your phone.
1. Install the battery:
 Using the slot provided, gently lift the cover off the phone.
 Insert the battery, aligning the gold contacts on the battery with the gold contacts on
the phone, and gently press the battery into place.
 Replace the battery compartment cover, making sure all the tabs are secure and
there are no gaps around the cover.

2. Insert the USB cable into the Charger/Accessory Jack on the bottom of the phone. Get Started 2
3. Insert the other end of the USB cable into the Charging Head, and then plug the
Charging Head into an electrical outlet to charge your battery.
Note: Your phone’s battery should have enough charge to turn the phone on and find a signal,
run the setup application, set up voicemail, and make a call. You should fully charge the
battery as soon as possible.
Activate Your Phone
Depending on your account or how and where you purchased your phone, it may be ready to
use or you may need to activate it on your Sprint account.
● If you purchased your phone at a Sprint Store, it is probably activated and ready to use.
● If you received your phone in the mail and it is for a new Sprint account or a new line of
service, it is designed to activate automatically when you turn it on for the first time.
Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the activation process.
● If you received your phone in the mail and you are activating a new phone for an existing
number on your account (you’re swapping phones), you can activate on your computer
online or directly on your phone.
 Activate on your computer:
• Go to sprint.com/activate and complete the online instructions to activate your
phone.
 Activate on your phone:
• Turn on your new phone. (Make sure the old one is turned off.) Your phone will
automatically attempt activation.
• Follow the onscreen prompts to complete the activation process.
● To confirm activation, make a phone call. If your phone is still not activated or you do not
have access to the Internet, contact Sprint Customer Service at 1-888-211-4727 for
assistance.
Tip: Do not press the Power/Lock Key while the phone is being activated. Pressing the
Power/Lock Key cancels the activation process.
Note: If you are having any difficulty with activation, contact Sprint Customer Service by calling
1-888-211-4727 from any other phone. Get Started 3

Your Microsoft Account

your PC or Xbox. You also need a Microsoft account to buy apps and back up your phone.
Your Microsoft account is the email address and password you use to sign in to Hotmail, Xbox,
Windows, Messenger, SkyDrive, and more. You don`t have to sign in with your Microsoft
account first, but once you do, the possibilities on your phone open up immensely. Once you
sign in, you can:
