Turning on for the first time
To turn on your smartphone for the first time, press and hold the power button until the screen turns on. You will then be asked to configure some settings before you can use your smartphone.
Follow the onscreen instructions to complete setup.
Sign in to or create a Google account
If you have Internet access, your smartphone allows you to synchronize information with a google account.
During the start-up process, you may create or sign in to your account, which will be used to synchronize your contact list, email, calendar and other information. If you do not yet have Internet access, or do not want to use this feature, then tap Skip.
Creating multiple Google accounts
You can create and easily access multiple Google accounts. Open the Application Menu and then tap Settings > Add account.
Entering your PIN
When you install a SIM card for the first time, you may need to enter a PIN using the onscreen number pad.
Important: Depending on your settings, you may be required to enter your PIN each time you switch on the phone function.
Activating a new SIM card
If you are using your SIM card for the first time, it may require activation. Contact your network operator for details on how to do this.
Locking your smartphone
If you will not use your smartphone for a while, briefly press the power button to lock access. This saves power and ensures your smartphone does not unintentionally use any services. Your smartphone will lock automatically if it is not used for one minute.
Waking your smartphone
If the screen is off and the smartphone does not react to any taps on the screen or front panel button, then it has been locked and is in sleep mode.
Press the power button to wake your smartphone. Unlock your smartphone by sliding your finger from one side of the screen to the other (it works both ways).
For additional security, you may set an unlock pattern, a set of dots that must be touched in the correct order to access the phone. Open the Application Menu and then tap Settings > Security > Screen lock.
You may also directly enter the lock screen applications at the bottom of the screen. Tap the icon and slide your finger to the left or right across to quickly access the application. To change the lock screen applications, see "Managing the lock screen" on page 15.
Navigating through menus and options
To navigate through menus and options, there are three buttons beneath the screen.
Tap this button to go to the previous page, or to go up one level in a menu. Tap and hold this button to see recently opened applications. Tap an application to open it, or tap anywhere on the screen to return to the Home screen. See "Multitasking" on page 18.
Tap this button to go directly to the Home screen. Tap and hold this button to open the Google Now App. If you are not signed into your Google account, tap and hold this button to open the Search Function.
Tap this button to open a menu of actions that are valid for the current application or screen.
