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.1

Section 1: Getting Started
This section reviews how to get started by configuring
your hardware, activating your service, and 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.
1. Locate the slot on the side of the cover, use this slot to
pull the cover up, and then lift it away from the phone.Getting Started 6
Installing the SIM Card
A Subscriber Identity Module (SIM Card) is a “smartcard”
that houses personal information, such as your mobile phone
number, calling plan, account information, and content, such
as contacts, text messages, and call history.
The Verizon Wireless 4G LTE SIM Card is compatible with any
Verizon Wireless 4G LTE certified device. You can move the
4G LTE SIM Card from one device to another and your
wireless service will work seamlessly as long as you have a
compatible device and service plan. To see which devices
are compatible with the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE SIM Card,
visit verizonwireless.com/certifieddevice.
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.
 With the battery removed, 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.
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.7
Installing the Battery
1. Insert the battery into the opening on the back of
the phone, making sure the three metal connectors
align (1).
2. Gently press down to secure the battery (2).
3. Replace the battery cover (the back of the phone) by
aligning the bottom of the battery cover with the phone
as shown.
4. Press the cover down into place.Getting Started 8
5. Press down firmly along the edges of the cover to
ensure that the cover is flush with the phone. You
should hear a light click as the cover locks in place.
Note: Make sure the battery is properly installed before
switching on the phone.
Charging a Battery
Your phone is powered by a rechargeable Li-ion battery. The
Wall/USB Charger, which is used to charge the battery, is
included with your phone. Use only approved batteries and
chargers. Long backlight settings, searching for service,
vibrate mode, 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 requires 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.9
Using the Wall/USB Charger
1. Connect the USB cable to the power adapter.
2. Plug the power adapter into a standard electrical
outlet.
3. Connect the small end of the USB cable into the
phone’s Micro USB Charging Port.
When you connect the charger, your phone powers on
automatically. Your Windows phone stays powered on
whenever it is charging.
4. When charging is finished, remove the flat end from
the interface connector jack on the phone.
Caution! Failure to unplug the wall charger before you
remove the battery can cause damage to the phone.
Low Battery Indicator
When the battery is weak and only a few minutes of talk time
remain, the “Battery critically low” warning appears and the
device sounds a warning tone at regular intervals.
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. A solid battery icon ( ) indicates a
full charge.
When the battery level becomes too low, the phone
automatically turns off.
Note: If the phone automatically turns off because the battery
level is too low, you must charge the battery until the
phone turns on automatically.Getting Started 10
Memory Card
Your device supports optional, removable, microSD or
microSDHC memory cards (not included) for storage of
music, pictures, and other files.
For more information about using memory cards, see “Phone
Storage” on page 102.
Installing a Memory Card
1. Locate the microSD card slot on the side of the phone.
2. Place the card with the gold strips facing down.
3. Carefully slide the optional microSD card into the card
slot (as shown) until it “clicks” into place.
Removing a Memory Card
Warning! To prevent damage to data stored on the memory
card, unmount the card before removing it from the
device.
1. From the Home screen, touch Settings. Under the
system menu, touch phone storage ➔ SD card ➔
remove SD card.
2. At the prompt, read the warning and select OK to
continue. Wait for the SD card safe to remove icon to
appear in the Status bar and Notification panel.
3. Locate the microSD card slot on the side of the phone.
4. Push the memory card inward to release the lock, and
then carefully pull the card out.11
Turning your Phone On or Off
 To turn ON, press and hold the Power/Lock button.
 To power OFF, press and hold the Power/Lock button
and follow the prompts.

more information, refer to “Language + Region” on
page 106.

 To lock, press the Power/Lock button.
 To unlock, press the Power/Lock button. Then swipe
your finger up the screen.
Note: Your phone is able to make emergency calls without
being set up or having a SIM card installed, if your
mobile operator allows. To place an emergency call,
touch emergency call and dial 911 or the appropriate
emergency phone number.
Using the Start-Up Wizard
The very first time you turn on your phone, the Start-up
Wizard screen will guide you through the basics of setting up
your device.
Follow the prompts to choose a default language, country/
region and time zone, date and time, Wi-Fi network.
� To get apps, play games, automatically sync Windows Live
information to the web, and more, you need a Microsoft
account. If you already have an Xbox LIVE, Hotmail, or
Windows ID, you already have a Microsoft account.
The Start-up Wizard will prompt you to sign in with your
existing Microsoft account, or to create a new one.
Note: If you choose Sign in later, you can postpone setting up
your Microsoft account. A Microsoft account required
screen displays when you try to use a feature that
requires that you be signed in.

from Verizon Wireless that automatically backs up your
contacts. Visit verizonwireless.com/baplus to learn more.Getting Started 12

Linking People
Linking People 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
Windows Live, Outlook, Google, Facebook, Twitter, and
LinkedIn. When you synchronize your phone with these
accounts, each account creates a separate contact entry in
the People list.
If one of your contacts (Amy Smith, for example) has a
regular email account that you maintain in Hotmail, but also
has a Facebook account under her maiden and married
name, as well as a Google account, when you merge these
accounts into your Contacts list you can link all of her entries
and view the information in one record.
The next time you synchronize your phone with your
accounts, any updates that contacts make to email account
names, email addresses, and so on, automatically update in
your People list.
For more information about synchronizing accounts, see
“Synchronizing Accounts” on page 42.
