  • BatteryYour phone uses a rechargeable, non-removable battery. How long the battery canlast before it needs recharging depends on how you use your phone. The features andaccessories you use can affect battery life. For example, leaving your Bluetooth

    connection always on uses more power. Long phone calls and frequent web browsinguse up a lot of battery power. Also, consider your location: poor signal strength fromyour mobile network and extreme temperature make the battery work harder.

    Charging the battery

    Only the power adapter and USB cable provided in the box must be used to chargethe battery.

    1. Insert the small end of the USB cable into the USB connector.

    2. Insert the other end of the USB cable into the power adapter.

    3. Plug in the power adapter to an electrical outlet to start charging the battery.

    As the battery is being charged, the notification LED shows a solid red light. The lightturns to solid green when the battery is fully charged.

    When you charge the battery and the phone is on, the charging battery icon isdisplayed in the status bar. After the battery has been fully charged, the chargingbattery icon turns to a full battery icon .
