Make sure your battery is fully charged

Make sure that you fully recharge your battery on a regular basis prior to use. Failure to do so can cause your battery to drain more rapidly and shorten its life span.

  • Whenever possible, use the AC adapter and plug your phone into an external power outlet.
  • You can use your phone while your battery recharges.

Restart your phone

Restarting your phone causes its software to reload and renews your connection to the network, which can fix some problems:

  1. Remove the battery.
  2. Wait ten seconds.
  3. Reinsert the battery.
  4. Turn your phone on.
  5. Your phone is restarted.
