Set Up Your Phone

Before using your new phone, you must install and charge the battery. You may also install an optional memory card (not included).

Note: Your phone’s battery should have enough charge to turn the phone on and find a signal, complete the setup wizard, set up voicemail, and make a call. You should fully charge the battery as soon as possible.

Remove the Back Cover

Remove the cover for access to the SIM card, optional memory card (not included), and the battery.

  1. Remove the back cover using the slot on the top of your phone.
  2. Carefully lift the cover.
