18 2A. Phone Basics
When the battery reaches 5% of its capacity, the battery
icon blinks. When there are approximately two minutes
of talk time left, the phone sounds an audible alert and
then turns off.
Installing the Battery
ᮣ See “Setting Up Your Phone” on page 2.
Removing the Battery
1. Make sure the power is off so that you don’t lose
any stored numbers or messages.
2. Hold the phone securely with both hands.
3. Place your thumb on the bottom of the phone and
push the cover upward until it clicks out of place.
Then, remove the battery cover.
4. Use the opening near the top of the battery to lift
the battery out.
Charging the Battery
Keeping track of your battery’s charge is important. If
your battery level becomes too low, your phone
automatically turns off, and you will lose any
information you were working on.
Always use a Sprint-approved or LG-approved desktop
charger, travel charger, or vehicle power adapter to
charge your battery.
Note: Long backlight settings, searching for service, vibrate
mode, browser use, and other variables may reduce
the battery’s talk and standby times.
Tip: Watch your phone’s battery level indicator and charge the
battery before it runs out of power.
WARNING: Do not handle a damaged or leaking Li-poly
battery as you can be burned.
