Charge the battery

The phone battery is partly charged when you buy the phone. It may take a few minutes before the battery icon appears on the screen when you connect the phone to a power source. You can still use your phone while it is charging.

To charge the phone using the power adapter:

  • Connect the phone to a power outlet using the USB cable and the power adapter.

To charge the phone using a computer:

  • Connect the phone to a USB port on a computer using the USB cable.

Note: The battery will start to discharge a little after it is fully charged and then charges again after a certain time. This is to extend battery life and may result in the charge status showing at a level below 100 per cent.

Tip: You can keep the screen on while charging the phone. From the Home screen, tap the Application screens icon, and then find and tap Settings > Applications > Development and mark the Stay awake checkbox.
